Movie Review: Khandaani Shafakhana

Posted: August 3, 2019

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 withContinue reading →


    

Movie Review: Judgementall Hai Kya

Posted: July 27, 2019

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, thingsContinue reading →


    

Movie Review : Article 15

Posted: June 30, 2019

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 girlsContinue reading →


    

Movie Review : Kabir Singh

Posted: June 22, 2019

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, extremelyContinue reading →


    

Movie Review : Bharat

Posted: June 5, 2019

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 alternativeContinue reading →


    

Movie Review : Robert Akbar Walter

Posted: April 6, 2019

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’tContinue reading →


    

Movie Review : Badla

Posted: March 9, 2019

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 hisContinue reading →


    

Movie Review : The Accidental Prime Minister

Posted: January 13, 2019

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 theContinue 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 →


    

Movie Review : Sanju

Posted: June 30, 2018

Sanju: A Heart Warming Blend of Reality & Fiction “Sanju” was in limelight from the day the movie was launched, the reason, the talented combination of Rajkumar Hirani and Ranbir Kapoor coming together for the first time and above all the man on which the movie is based Sanjay Dutt, whose life has been nothing more of a blockbuster movie. “Sanju” largely captures two very eminent chapters of Sanjay Dutt’s life, one his struggle during his drugs days and how he rose like a phoenix and re-started his life, and second his brush with lawContinue reading →


    

Movie Review: Hichki

Posted: March 24, 2018

Hichki: Predictable yet Heart Warming “Hichki” is a true example of safe film making; it is moulded in an existing mould taking inspirations from various movies international and Bollywood exploring the theme of teacher and student bonding. Starting from Jagruti to Imtehaan to Taare Zameen Par, this theme has been used successfully, and “Hichki” takes the same path, though primarily it is an adaptation of the book, “Front of the Class: How Tourette Syndrome Made Me the Teacher I Never Had” by Brad Cohen. “Hichki” tells the story of NainaContinue reading →


    

Movie Review: Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

Posted: February 24, 2018

“Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” is a typical Luv Ranjan genre of film which seems like an extension of his previous outing “Pyar ka Punchnama” 1 & 2, wherein the men are the victims and the women are the scheming lot. Well what is different about this movie is the heightened bromance which was otherwise subtle in the previous movies. The story of SKTKS is of Sonu and Titu who are childhood buddies. Titu is a emotional sucker who leans on Sonu whenever he breaks up with his girlfriends, and Sonu always protects Titu. Problem starts when TituContinue reading →

His vision is of a large canvas with larger than life characters and if it is historic then nobody can match Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s finesse today, a true successor to K Asif.

Movie Review: Meri Pyaari Bindu

Posted: May 14, 2017

Meri Pyaari Bindu: Not So Pyaari After All... As the name suggests the movie is of the principle character Bindu (Parineeti Chopra) through the eyes of her childhood friend cum admirer cum lover Boobla (Ayushman Khurana). The story primarily set in North Kolkata oscillates not only as far as location goes but also in overall graph of the story. So the movie is of the friendship cum love of Boobla a.k.a Abhimanyu Roy, a C grade cheap pulp novelist who re-visits his memories with her next door neighbour Bindu, an extremely vivacious, fickleContinue reading →


    

Movie Review: Rangoon

Posted: February 25, 2017

Rangoon: A Beautiful Canvas without the soul Vishal Bharadwaj the ace film maker has mastered the art of narrating complex stories on human relations and he is a master in adapting Shakespeare’s work in Hindi movies.

Movie Review: The Ghazi Attack

Posted: February 19, 2017

The Ghazi Attack: A befitting salute to The Indian Navy War movies are very few in Bollywood, and there are very few directors like J. P. Dutta in 90’s or Chetan Anand in 60’s who take the pain to explore the subject. War movie genre that is inspired by real life incident was last seen in “LOC” in 2003. “The Ghazi Attack” dares to explore the genre, but this time it is the Indian Navy which is explored which I think is for the first time in Bollywood that a movie on Indian Navy has been made, so apt tag line “First Under water WarContinue reading →


    

Movie Review: Irada

Posted: February 17, 2017

Irada: Fails in its IRADA to Entertain Brilliant Concept and a compelling cast are two ingredients of a good movie, but if the screenplay and execution falters both the ingredients is just a waste. Well “Irada” is such a catastrophe. “Irada” tells the story of small town of Punjab where a PPFL, a  Pharma company owned by businessman Paddy Sharma (Sharad Kelkar) has a supremacy in the city and the state, having the CM Ramandeep Braitch (Divya Dutta) under his influence.

Movie Review: Kahaani 2-Durga Rani Singh

Posted: December 3, 2016

Kahaani 2-Durga Rani Singh: A Kahaani too Predictable It is always a hard luck for a sequel to be compared to its prequel which cannot be changed and “Kahaani 2” without doubt will be compared to “Kahaani”, though both the movies are different and has no bearing with each other, other than the genre.

Azhar: A Caricature Than a Biopic Biopics are sensitive themes, if they are not handled with utmost care it becomes a caricature, well “Azhar” falls in that category...”Neerja”, “Mary Kom”, “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” are some of the best biopics of Bollywood.... “Azhar” chronicles the life of famous cricketer and ex-captain of India Mohammad Azharuddin from his Hyderabad days to his glory as a cricketer and his fall due to the controversial match fixing case and his lifetime ban from cricket, the movie specifically emphasizes on Azharuddin’sContinue reading →


    

Movie Review: Baaghi

Posted: April 30, 2016

Baaghi: Nothing Rebellious about this Rebel Sabbir Khan introduced Tiger Shroff to Bollywood in an impressive “Heropanti” which may not be termed as a classic but it was entertaining and an ideal launch vehicle for a newcomer and giving due credit to Tiger Shroff he did not disappoint us. The same director actor duo comes up with “Baaghi”....hence the expectations are high... “Baaghi” has slim story line of a rebel Ronny who is sent to Kerala by his dying father to Guruswamy (Grandmaster Shifuji Shaurya Bharadwaj) to be trained in martialContinue reading →

Movie Review: Tere Bin Laden Dead Or Alive

Posted: February 27, 2016

Tere Bin Laden Dead Or Alive: A half baked satire which could have been better Bollywood has not been too successful with sequels, excluding an off case of Munnabhai series wherein “Lage Raho Munnabhai” was better than the prequel... “Tere Bin Laden” in 2010 was a surprise hit, wherein a satire was presented extremely well by director Abhishek Sharma.

Saala Khadoos: It could have been better if it had been more Khadoos It is good to see a new trend in Bollywood of sports movies, especially woman oriented sports movies which off course was started with “Chak De India”.... But the problem is just having a concept and script of sports movie is not enough, it needs to have the soul at the right place, unfortunately after “Chak De India” none of the movies could create that impact, though “Mary Kom” had some positives... “Saala Khadoos” takes the concept of “Chak De India” but in BoxingContinue reading →

The spark that Bijoy Nambiar showed us in “Shaitaan” is missing in “Wazir”….the concept was brilliant with a premise of a crippled Chess player Omkar Nath Dhar a.k.a Pandit ji (Amitabh Bachchan) who meets Danish Ali (Farhan Akhtar) a suspended ATS officer who has lost hisContinue reading →

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo: It is only Salman’s Prem all the way Sooraj Barjatya has always been synonymous with good wholesome family entertainers, thriving on values and traditions of Indian society. The Indian audience whether in India or abroad has always lapped whatever Sooraj has offered, well excluding an exception of “Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon” wherein he diverted a bit and faced a lot of flak. Another highlight of Sooraj’s films has been its screenplays which stick to the basic premise of the story... Well “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”Continue reading →

Movie Review: Shandaar

I still remember the day 20th Oct 1995 in a small town Jabalpur standing in queue for the tickets of the First Day First Show of “Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayege”.

Jazbaa: Not too much of Jazbaat.... but only style Sanjay Gupta, the name is synonym of movies which are remake of Hollywood and loads of style with a larger than life canvas but less of substance. The two movies which had both style and substance were “Kaante” (2002) & “Zinda” (2006)…. Sanjay Gupta is back with a remake of a Korean movie “Seven Days” for Aishwarya Rai’s comeback vehicle. Aishwaraya is in all the frames of the movie and not for a moment do you forget that this is Ash’s comeback movie. The plot tells the story ofContinue reading →

Singh Is Bliing: Nothing so Blingy, But Akshay Shines Akshay Kumar just like Govinda in the 90’s has created a niche in his kind of comedy and “Singh Is Bling” is a step forward to the same. Prabhu Deva & Akshay Kumar combo in their last outing “Rowdy Rathore” (2012) was a huge hit. This time Prabhu Deva takes the flavour of “Singh Is King” of an innocent Sardar, Raftaar Singh and mixes it with his kind of masala and presents “Singh Is Bling”. The premise primarily tells us the story of a good hearted but good for nothing Raftaar Singh Continue reading →

Movie Review: Hero

Posted: September 13, 2015

Hero: Not so Heroic about this HERO In India when Star Kids are launched, their launch movies are like a talent showcase wherein the actors are presented like super heroes who can dance, do action, look the best in Hip clothes and flex muscles in case of a actor. Acting it seems is the last priority, and in this whole mayhem of showcasing their talent the story somewhere takes a back seat. I guess the last launch movie for a star kid which created a stir was “Kaho Na Pyar Hai” way back in 2000, after which none of the so called launchContinue reading →

Movie Review : Phantom

Posted: August 29, 2015

Phantom:  A Thriller I wish had more Punch Political Thrillers are Kabir Khan’s forte, what with his previous movies “Kabul Express” & “Ek Tha Tiger” both were of the same genre.

Movie Review: All Is Well

Posted: August 22, 2015
