“Kangana & Hansal Mehta weave a wacky entertainer in Simran” – Subhash K Jha Review

16 September 2017 10:00 PM, PDT

Simran

Starring Kangana RanautSohum Shah

Directed by Hansal Mehta

Rating: *** ½(3 and a half stars)

Imagine if your child turns out to be a sociopath. This, in one line, summarizes the whimsical plot of Hansal Mehta’s new high-on-life low-on-moralizing​ film.

Simran or Praful Patel ​(or Kangana Ranaut)​, is  no ordinary celluloid creation.  She gambles all her savings away in Las Vegas and spends the rest of her time back home in Atlanta robbing banks to pay back her dangerous  creditors (played by a mock-mafia of  amateurish American actors).

It’s hard to  imagine anyone but Mr Ranaut​ playing a Gujarati bandit queen, shooting her way through a series of hilariously-staged heists where Praful alias Simran gets to try out several wigs that wouldn’t fool a 5-year old playing a video game​, let alone the American law enforcers who take  awfully long to cotton on to Praful’s harebrained​ get-rich-quick scheme. »

“Lucknow Central – Outstanding Study Of Imprisonment & Freedom” – Subhash K Jha

16 September 2017 9:00 PM, PDT

Lucknow Central

Starring Farhan AkhtarGippy Grewal, Diana PentyDeepak DobriyalRajesh Sharma, Inamulhaq

Directed by Ranjit Tiwari

Rating: **** ½ (4 and a half stars)

“You don’t get justice in the world, you only get good luck or bad luck,” a wise old librarian (pronounced ‘lee-bray-nian’ by his Lucknowi singer-son) quotes Orson Welles.

Our good luck, then, that we get a prison drama as taut and thrilling, relevant and resonant as Lucknow Central right in the middle of  the year when things are looking bloody bleak in Bollywood.

Yes, there is hope. Lucknow Central is by far the most engaging thinking-man’s thriller of the year. Ballsy and brave, it penetrates  the politics of prison life without relinquishing the right to engage us in a solid storytelling spree where a clever cat-and-mouse game is played out between a sadistic jailor (Ronit Roy, in top form) and a non-guilty prisoner (Farhan Akhtar »

“Aksar 2 is a classic suspense, old fashioned noir,” says Director Ananth Mahadevan

16 September 2017 8:00 PM, PDT

Director Ananth Mahadevan is all set to showcase Aksar 2 to the audience on the 6th of October. However, he feels that the film is being perceived as an erotica, which it is not. In fact Aksar 2 is a thrilling suspense drama that will keep the audience at the edge of their seats.

“The first Aksar was about a man asking another to seduce his wife, so it automatically lent itself to being a steamy film. But Aksar 2 is not in that genre at all. It is about six people coming together and playing mind games, and then realizing that things can boomerang. It is a classic suspense, old fashioned noir,” explained the concerned director.

The first trailer that was presented to the audience had a couple of love making scenes between Zareen Khan and Abhinav Shukla. However Ananth exclaims that films today do have steamy scenes but »
