For Supporting role in the feature, "Indian Fish In American Waters":
FOB Naveen falls hard for ABCD Megha (Shweta Malhotra) who decides to date him despite dire warnings from her actress-wannabe best friend(Puja Mohindra).It's the friend's bathroom Oscar acceptance speech "for brown people everywhere" and her dramatic monologue when she pretends to be pregnant using Tupperware as her stomach for a scene she's rehearsing that provide some of the pic's funniest moments.
Reviews of "Foreign" :
But the movie without a doubt belongs to Puja Mohindra, who shares her soul with the audience as Radhika. She is beautiful beyond words can describe, and the performance is one that you go on with her, feeling her pain, suffering and justice. This girl needs to be awarded for the Best Actress category and fast.
Puja Mohindra looks stunning, deglamourised and beautiful throughout different stages of the movie. ..She carries the movie from the moment go and we are locked into her trauma that she entails and feel sympathy for her throughout.
Her transformation from beginning to end is nothing but that of a great actress in the making. Even in parts of the movie where she has no given lines, somehow this actress seems to say a lot through her body language.
The casting of Puja Mohindra as Radhika is just exceptional. She is stunning and looks like a doll throughout the first portion of the movie and in the second portion, it is like the doll has found a voice. There is a great transition from the weak girl we see initially, to a woman, you do not want to mess with.
Puja Mohindraas Radhika is perfection as her character. There is always a tendency for actors to overdo it with scenes as sensitive as these, but Mohindra keeps her ground and carries the movie the whole way. To say that she looks breathtaking, is just the tip of the iceberg. She plays Radhika with innocence and likeability, and we still root for her, even when she turns an evil streak.
