Movie Review: Khandaani Shafakhana

Khandaani Shafakhana: A Khandaani Take on a Taboo subject On the onset I must congratulate debutant director Shilpi Dasgupta and writer Gautam Mehra for trying such a taboo subject. Khandaani Shafakhana based in Hoshiyarpur, Punjab, tells the story of Bobby Bedi (Sonakshi Sinha) who is medical representative in an Herbal Medicine Company and trying to make ends meet, suddenly has a change of luck when she is informed that Hakim Tarachand a.k.a Mamaji (Khulbhushan Kharbanda) has willed her his entire property and his sex clinic with some pre-requisite conditions which she needs to fulfill in six months. Whether Bobby accepts … Continue reading

Movie Review: Judgementall Hai Kya

Judgementall Hai Kya: Too mental to be Judgemental On the onset let me warn “Judgementall Hai Kya” is not your regular Bollywood movie which follows a set pattern. Well I may say with this movie it is really DIFFERENT. Right from the concept to the presentation to the performance all are nothing that you may have seen in Bollywood before. “Judgementall Hai Kya” tells us the story of Bobby Batliwala Garewal (Kangana Ranaut) who suffers from mental issues due to what she went through during her childhood. A dubbing artist by profession, things change for her when young married couple … Continue reading

Movie Review : Article 15

Article 15: The Bitter Truth of our Society On the onset I would say kudos to Anubhav Sinha, for attempting such a subject and that to in a commercial format. I don’t remember any main stream director even trying to do something on the subject of caste divide in our Indian society. The movie which is inspired the Badaun Rape of 2014, tells the story of Ayan Ranjan (Ayushman Khurana) a new recruit as DCP, who goes for his first posting at Lalgaon a small district in Uttar Pradesh.In his very first assignment he has a case of two dalit … Continue reading

Movie Review : Kabir Singh

Kabir Singh: Devdas rebooted as a Lust Story “Kabir Singh” is the Hindi remake of highly successful Telegu movie “Arjun Reddy”. Though I have not seen the original, but somehow it felt as a frame to frame copy of the original only difference being the premise being shifted to Delhi and Mumbai. Kabir Singh written by the director of the original Sandeep Vanga and who is also debuting in Bollywood with this movie, explores the Male Chauvinism to the hilt. So in the movie we come across the really bright and extremely short tempered, extremely stubborn character Kabir Singh (Shahid … Continue reading

Movie Review : Bharat

Bharat: An Extraordinary journey yet NOT so extraordinary “Bharat” as the name suggests has patriotic theme throughout. Based on the 2014 Korean movie “Ode To My Father” the movie traces the journey of an ordinary man Bharat (Salman Khan) through the various events of India, right from partition till 2010. Original Story written by Su-jin Park and adapted screenplay by Varun V Sharma and director Ali Abbas Zafar, could have been an emotional joy ride of only they had stuck to the original format. But Varun and Ali choose an alternative wherein they try to mix humour with the emotional … Continue reading

Movie Review : Robert Akbar Walter

Robert Akbar Walter: Too RAW to be served Lately Bollywood has been in a mood of espionage thrillers, a genre which has been successfully dealt in movies like BABY (2015), D-Day (2013) and Raazi (2018), and not so successfully in Phantom (2015) and Agent Vinod (2013) both staring Saif Ali Khan. Robert Akbar Walter belongs to the same genre, set in 1971 it tells the story of Romeo Ali (John Abraham) a bank teller whose life changes when RAW Chief Shrikant Rai (Jackie Shroff) approaches him for a covert mission in Pakistan. The rest I don’t want to reveal as … Continue reading

Movie Review : Badla

Badla: A twisted tale of Human Psyche “Badla” is the official remake of Spanish blockbuster “The Invisible Guest”. Straight up I must confess that I have not seen the original so my review would be what director Sujoy Ghosh has to offer to us. Sujoy Ghosh has this uncanny ability to dish out thrillers which are layered and well made, take his previous “Kahani”, “Kahani 2” or the web short film “Ahilya”. In all his previous movies you get layered characters who are not exactly black or white but a shade of grey. Well Sujoy continues with his endeavor and … Continue reading

Movie Review : The Accidental Prime Minister

The Accidental Prime Minister: Too Accidental to be a wholesome Movie Bollywood has never had a decent political thriller till date. Every time it tries it has fallen flat excluding one exception which was Prakash Jha’s “Rajneeti”. “The Accidental Prime Minister” is one such attempt based on the book written by Sanjaya Baru of the same name which chronicles Dr Manmohan Singh’s journey as a Prime Minister from the eyes of Sanjaya when he was the Media Advisor in the PMO. This movie is unabashedly a strategic move before the election as the movie is complete anti Sonia and Rahul … Continue reading

Movie Review : Uri - The Surgical Strike

Posted: January 12, 2019

Uri: The Surgical Strike: Homage to the Indian Army On the onset I must say “Uri:The Surgical Strike” is a befitting homage to the Indian Army. Debutant Director Aditya Dhar explores the struggles of a soldier to keep our borders safe and the sacrifices his family does to keep us safe. Aditya takes the 2016 surgical attack on POK as the premise and weaves in a story which not only delves on the profession but also the personal life of a soldier. Aditya mixes fact and fiction in re-creating the events of the surgical strike and molds it in aContinue reading →

    

Movie Review : Thugs Of Hindustan

Posted: November 20, 2018

Thugs Of Hindustan the much awaited movie of the year released today with a lot of anticipation….But what we get is an extremely average movie which is high on spectacular Action (Most of it is mindless) and amazing CGI. Vijay Krishna Acharya the director spent more on the technical aspect of the movie to make it a spectacle…the action is world class, the CGI is Hollywood Standard, the cinematography by Manush Nandan is top notch and the Production Design is out of this world but unfortunately the STORY is missing…written by Vijay himselfContinue reading →

    

Movie Review : Pataakha

Posted: September 30, 2018

Pataakha is Vishal Bharadwaj directed comedy based on a short story by Charan Singh Pathik’s “Do Behne”…The story is of two warring sisters played by Radhika Madan as Champa Kumari a.k.a Badki and Sanya Malhotra as Genda Kumari a.k.a Chutki based in a small village in Rajasthan. The movie starts on a high note and you soak into the world created by Vishal with crackling performances by both Sanya and Radhika supported aptly by Vijay Raaz as Bapu and Sunil Grover as Dipper. The first half goes like a breeze and the intermission pointContinue reading →

    

Movie Review : Sui Dhaaga

Posted: September 29, 2018

Sui Dhaaga Made In India is an inspiring story yet predictable….where the movie stands out is in the simplicity of the characters whom we see in our day to day life and also in the way Sharat Kataria creates humour as well as drama from day to day life. You fall in love with the characters Mauji brilliantly and earnestly played by Varun Dhawan and Mamta played superlatively by Anushka Sharma the moment the movie starts and keep your smile intact throughout the movie The other two actors who make a mark are Raghubir Yadav who playsContinue reading →
