I love to watch movies regardless of their genres but i like Animated and Sci-fi movies the most.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)
Hollow and bleak
One of the worst spy films i saw in recent memory.I had no idea what is going on the screen.I was left wondering after the completion of the movie about the content of the movie.The movie had a pretty decent story to tell and if expressed properly could have been turned into a good entertainer. It is basically and action thriller but all the thrill elements were missing.I didn't get thrilled even for a minute.The clumsy handling of the story was the main reason for this failure.The story is handled awkwardly.I was unable to connect with the story.Nearly 3/4th of the movie was wasted in buildup which was too repulsive to bear.The heist scene was laughable.The patriotic theme of the movie was also too subtle. Performance wise everyone is OK.Direction is the most infirm thing of the movie.I expected it to be a decent entertainer but it was completely bland. 3.1 out of 10 would be enough.
The Godfather (1972)
Excellent but not great....
The godfather is widely regarded as the greatest film ever made in the history of cinema.Widely considered a milestone,the movie inspired countless films. It might be a shame to admit but i hadn't seen this movie until 2015.After nearly 42 years of its release i finally got a chance to watch it.After watching the movie i found its story to familiar.It is because i have watched countless movies which are directly or indirectly inspired by this film and i must say that this movie was far better than those rip- offs. The movie has a great story.It shows the transition of a reluctant family-man to a crime family boss.The screenplay is absorbing.The cast is wonderful and everybody is peerless in their respective roles.In short this film is superb and wonderful.But i can't consider it as a great film.I don't know why it is called so?May be it had been a very original story during 70's but now it is not so.I am not a film scholar,neither i am a movie buff nor a cinema aficionado but i have seen many classics of World cinema and i found some movies which are far better than this one. I am not saying that this is not a great film.It is great,after all so many people like this and so many can't be wrong.This is a respectable movie after all this movie has influenced countless films.This movie might be great but not the greatest ever. This is an excellent example of mobster film.Positive points of this film are its evergreen story,its soulful musical score,its engaging screenplay,nice direction,great dialogs and amazing acting.The only negative point of the movie is its slow pace and overlong runtime.
So at last i want to say that it is an awesome piece of art and everybody must watch it.May be due to time difference or due to cultural gap,i was unable to grasp it completely. 7.9 out of 10 is my final rating.
Dr. No (1962)
Simple yet superb
The first movie of James bond cannon... What a start!The movie is very good in terms of visuals,acting,cinematography and musical score.The plot might be a little feeble but its execution is quite good.The film maintains its pace nicely.The runtime is also OK.The climax is a little doddering.The plot also contains some minor flaws but they are quickly overcome by its fast pace and the amazing storytelling ability of Terence Young. Sean looks amazing.He must have been a heartthrob during his age.His charismatic look and flamboyant personality mixed with his amazing panache is impeccable.He is a perfect choice for the role and no one other than him could have played this act so admirably.Ursula never looked so attractive.Joseph Wiseman's role was a little puny.I expected him to be more stronger.Yet him calm and wise voice was fit for his role of a evil genius. Cinematogrphy is awesome.The camera captures the vibrant and picturesque surrounding brilliantly.The visuals are good.The light hearted tone and good one liners are another positive points for the film. A nice movie and a must watch for the Bond lovers.The start of this brilliant Spy saga is not to be missed. 6.8 out of 10 is my final rating.
Bahubali: The Beginning (2015)
Epic in every sense.....
In one word this movie is simply MIND- BLOWING.This movie sets a benchmark in the field of visual effects in Indian cinema.Each and very frame of the film boasts of visual mastery.In another words,This is the grandest film,India has ever produced. Not just visuals,the film is rich in every field.Plot of the film is very good.The screenplay is fast paced and enchanting.There are not many unnecessary scenes or subplots.Right from the first scene,the movie hits the bullseye.Yes,some scenes are over-the-top and outrageous still those scenes contains an exquisite charm.The narration of the movie is excellent.The pace of the movie is brisk that's why it never seems that you are watching a movie of 150+ minutes.It never bores you.It is like a trip on a boat in a full-moon night. The background score is melodious and enchanting.It fits consummately with the mood of the film.And what to say about Visuals.They are simply brilliant.The movie contains one of the best visual effect ever seen in the history of Indian cinema.The bird-eye view of the kingdom,war scenes,avalanche scene,rock climbing scene and Lifting of Sivalinga etc. are some scenes where you can catch sight of the visual mastery.The locations are exquisite and looks like the Elysium has been painted on the canvas.Cinematography is excellent especially during the war scenes. S.S.Rajamouli can easily be termed as the James Cameron of India.His perception about this movie is artistic in sense and is truly peerless.With his new outing,he easily proves how great storyteller he is?He is truly an unparagoned artist. The movie can also be watched for its gratifying acting.Prabhas is amazingly awesome.He is the soul of the movie and with his performance he proves his panache once again.It is difficult to move your eyes away from him.Rana is awesome and is a perfect choice for the role of antagonist.His performance is superb.Ramya krishnan is astonishing.Her acting is another plus point of the movie.She is perfect in the role of a powerful queen.Tamannah is fit for her role.In action scenes she looks amazing.Anushka shetty has nothing much to do.Hoping that she will get a good role in the concluding part.Supporting cast is very good. This is an epic film in true sense as everything about this film is grand and epic.It is the greatest war epic India has ever produced.Bahubaali is an epic which is rich and vibrant and sets a milestone in Indian cinema.It is a must watch for every movie lover and if you are going to miss it then miss it at your own risk.This film shows the growing face of Indian cinema to the world. I would lovingly rate it 8.3 out of 10.
Gabbar is Back (2015)
An action film with a social theme.....
Gabbar is back is an action film with a social theme.But if you compare this film with previous Akki's social action films like Holiday and Baby then it is inferior to them.The theme of the movie is noble but its presentation is weak.The biggest problem here is the impuissant and predictable plot which has not been developed nicely.The movie raises the topic of corruption but the script of this movie itself is corrupt and heavily borrows from various movies of the genre.The script is not good enough to sustain this movie and its serious and thought provoking content.The plot also contains some loopholes.Still the entertainment quotient of the film is high,so it manages to engage you for 2 hours.The scene in the hospital,kidnapping of villain etc. are some scene which has been executed nicely.
Akshay is a dynamite and if you want to know why then just watch this movie.His look and dialogue delivery is unblemished.He looks very agile in action scenes and due to his friskiness the beyond belief action sequences looks so persuasive and reliable.Shruti dances well but has nothing to do in this movie.Kareena is unexceptional in a small cameo.Sunil grover was superb.I liked his acting as he acts so believably.Jaideep was ordinary.Suman does the same things he had done before.
Direction of the movie is nothing special and is ordinary.While watching the movie,i felt like i am watching a dubbed south Indian movie.Music of the film is good.The item song is sizzling.Action choreography is awesome as the action sequences are very good.Editing is also good.If a little attention was paid to the script,then the movie would have been more sharper and tenser.
The climax of the movie looks like a forced one.Still the movie manages to convey the message to the audience while not being too preachy.
Gabbar is nothing new but is passable flick due to its well choreographed action scenes,Akshay's amazing acting and its fast paced screenplay.If you are a fan of Akki then its a MUST WATCH for you.Otherwise its just an above average action flick which is a treat for mas-ala and hardcore action lovers.The movie was supposed to be a hard hitting social drama but fizzles due to its feeble writing.
6.3 out of 10 is enough.
Mr. X (2015)
An abominable attempt to create new age Mr. India
A new offering from Bhatt camp,Mr. X runs on the same formula as previous films of this camp.
An invisible hero who is a vigilante,An actress who does everything to capture the hero because she loves her duty more than anything,some lip-locks,A few romantic tracks and a decrepit and weak storyline,all sums up to make a film which is below the moderate mark.The main problem lies in the writing which is terrible.The plot is stale and pathetic.The screenplay is very slow and exasperating.The sluggish narration is another big drawback.The movie is full of unnecessary and foolish scenes which are too aggravating and makes you to yawn.The basic premise is good but is presented in such a absurd and ridiculous manner that the film seems like a preposterous mishmash of Mr.India and various vigilante films.Some scenes of the movie seems bizarre and comical.The situations created in the movie are ludicrous and risible.The ending is open and a gate for sequel has been left open(Oh god......plz save us).
Emraan hashmi is a good actor and this time again he plays her role nicely.He has played such type of roles many times and he fits nicely in his role.Although in some scenes he becomes dismayed and uneasy.Amyra is terribly bad and vexatious.He is extremely weak in acting.Arunodaya is decent.
Vikram bhatt's direction is neither good nor bad.Dialogues of the movie are plain and sometimes afflicting too.The film needs a serious editing and can be trimmed down by almost 30 minutes.Music is repetitive and bad.Only title track is audible.Visuals are good.
Mr. X is an attempt to create a Desi sci- fi thriller.The attempt is genuine,noble and praiseworthy but its outcome is not good enough.The main problem of the film is its paper- thin plot.If you are a fan of Emraan or Bhatt camp then you might find it good.Otherwise wait for its DVD to come out and save your hard earned bucks. 4.2 out of 10 is too much.
Gripping and captivating whodunit thriller
Rahasya is a murder mystery loosely inspired by Arushi murder case.The movie is about the murder of a teenager girl and the attempt of a CBI officer to unmask the killer.Their are many positive points about the movie and writing is one of them which is engrossing.Its screenplay is very absorbing.Right from the beginning you begin to guess about the killer among them.The flow is very fluent and the movie is a straight forward one.Their are no unnecessary sub-plots or scenes which regulates the flow of film.The main quality of the film is that it keeps you guessing till the very end.The apex of the movie is superb.1st half is good and intensifies the mystery.The way the suspense builds up is really amazing.2nd half is good although is a bit overstretched.
K.K menon is a very good actor and plays the role brilliantly.He is awesome in the role of a CBI officer and as a husband who cares for his family and can't compromise with his moral ethics.He doesn't takes bribe even when his wife forces her to do so by referring their weak economical condition.His dialog delivery is so simple and riveting.His expressions are brilliant.He is simply a powerhouse of talent.Tisca chopra is good although in some scenes she becomes uneasy.Ashish vidhyarthi was awesome.Its good and soothing experience to see him in such a brilliant role.Rest of the star- cast is also good.
Manish Gupta,with his direction shows how excellent storyteller he is?The ways he proceeds the story while not loosing his grip is truly worth applause. Dialogs of the movie are good and matches consummately with the tone of the movie.Cinematography is good and captures the true Mumbai where the poor and rich peoples live together.The locations of the movie is good and magnifies the tense atmosphere of the movie positively.The length of the movie is short although could have been little more shorter.
If you are a lover of a mystery thriller then you must go for it.It is very rare in bollywood to make such a climatic and vivid thriller which makes you guessing till the end.It is a gripping and riveting film which keeps you hooked.A nice and realistic cinematic experience. I would lovingly rate it 7.4 out of 10.
Ek Paheli Leela (2015)
Bromidic and tiresome
Leela is a film dealing with reincarnation and the past and present story of two characters along with a priceless statue. At first lets talk about the story.The story is stereotyped and its presentation is a complete disaster.The story is full of clichés and loopholes.The screenplay is very mundane.Right from the first scene of the movie you loses your interest.It is full of unnecessary and boring scenes which only increases the length of the movie which in return expands the suffering of viewers.Dialogs are too amateurish,absurd,bothersome and sometimes vulgar too.The first half is lousy and uninteresting,2nd half is even worse.The twist in the end is terribly vexatious.The pace of the movie is very slow and tiresome. In the acting department everyone was bad.Sunny Leone as a titular character dances well,looks sizzling but is very weak in acting.Her dialog delivery is terrible.Jay bhanusali kept the same expression on his face during entire movie.Rajneesh duggal has very little screen presence and he is moderate in his role.Rahul bose is good.He is the only cast member of this film who is bearable.The supporting cast was bad and over-active. Cinematography is good.Visuals are average.Music is the only thing about this movie which is satisfactory.The direction is very weak. This is a movie which showcases the body of Lead lady from every possible camera angles.Sometimes i feel so bad to think about Indian cinema and its member.Has they ran out of ideas? Can't they make sensible cinema instead of such pathetic ones? Watch this movie only if you have nothing to do.Otherwise let it go.And remember not to watch with Ur family members and children. 2.8 out of 10 would be too much.
Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015)
Sweet,innocent and refreshing
What a movie... It is so different and so real.You never feel that you are watching a movie,it feels like watching an incident of our locality on celluloid.The script is so good and the screenplay is brilliant.The movie shows a new and unseen face of Haridwar,which is superb.The main charm of the movie lies in its simplicity and its quirky humor.
Ayushman is brilliant in the role of a submissive boy.He expresses his subjugation,hesitation,uneasiness and confusion in a brilliant manner.Bhoomi is awesome.Her acting looks so believable.Supporting cast is brilliant.
Direction is awesome.Music of the movie feels refreshing and takes you back to 90's.Editing is good.Dialogs are sharp and brilliant.
It is a must watch for romantic-comedy lovers.It is a funny and refreshing movie which takes you to a journey of fun and love.After watching this movie,your concept of perfect girl is sure to change. I would go for 6.8 out of 10 for this movie.
Voilent,Scary,Brutal and engrossing
NH10 is a dark and depressing film.It is a movie about a road trip of a couple which goes awry.The couple gets trapped between a group of criminals.After that a brutal and bloody game starts which is scary and violent.
The movie showcases the hidden realities of our society.The movie explores the state and condition of females in male dominant society.It also touches the issue of Honour killing which is a burning and serious topic.It also focuses on the issue of caste discrimination The script is very sharp and flows very smoothly.There are no any unnecessary scenes which restrict the flow of the movie.The movie takes very little time to build and after that it becomes so engaging that you are forced to glue yourself on the seat.The first half is good.The post-interval portion is very good but the last 15 minutes are awesome.
This movie is basically a female oriented film.So this movie totally belongs to Anushka.The character demand of the lead role of the movie is very high and Anushka plays is brilliantly.She expresses her fear,angst,pain,sorrow and depression very smoothly.In some scenes she has become a little over the top and unconvincing.Still she must be applauded for playing such a different character.Darshan kumaar is awesome.His body language,his expression,his accent,everything is so good and convincing.He has given a tough competition to Anushka.Neel has a small role and had nothing much to do.Deepti naval is excellent even in very small role.Rest of the cast is also good.
The direction of the movie is the biggest plus point.Navdeep is an excellent story teller and it clearly shows.He should be applauded for making such a different movie which is like a breath of fresh breeze for bollywood audience.The editing is also very good as the movie is short and slick.The music is below average.'Chil Gaye naina' is the only track which is good.The locations are good and matches perfectly with the dark theme of the movie.The only problem i found in this movie is the lack of character development.
It is a powerful tale which reveals the dark truths of our society.It is a strong and intense thriller which is scary too.If you are a lover of a good cinema then it is a must watch for you.The movie showcases the growing face of Indian cinema.It is an intense and gripping thriller which is not a commercial potboiler but is rich in content.After Badlapur,again the bollywood has made a thriller which can compete with any film in term of its content.This movie demands guts from the viewers to digest its violent and bloody content.A nice cinematic experience.......
7.3 out of 10 would be perfect for this movie.
