Uri Music Review

  • Bollyspice
18th September 2016 is a date to be remembered as four heavily armed militants laid down a bloody attack upon Kashmiri border security forces in the town of Uri. Based on those events is the film of the retaliation, Uri: The Surgical Strike. Vicky Khausal leads a unit to hit those suspected of having committed this attack with a surgical strike approach, attacking the heart of the suspected groups. There are a lot of guns and noise, there are a lot of explosions and so the music can either be an assistant to this noise or it can play as a breaker in between scenes to give the audience a chance to calm down after a particularly gory moment. Shashwat Sachdev of last years Veere di Wedding is on hand to give a short but punchy album.

Dangal Movie Review

Dangal

Directed by: Nitesh Tiwari

Starring:

Aamir Khan as Mahavir Singh Phogat Sakshi Tanwar as Daya Shobha Kaur Fatima Sana Shaikh as Geeta Phogat Zaira Wasim as young Geeta

Sanya Malhotra as Babita Phogat Suhani Bhatnagar as young Babita

Music by: Pritam

Authentic. That was the first thought that entered my mind when I left the theater. The raw portrayal of the father-daughter dynamic as well as the accurate depiction of wrestling as a professional sport for women really sealed the purity of the film for me.

Based on the true story of Mahavir Singh Phogat (Aamir) and his 2 daughters, Geeta (Fatima) and Babita (Sanya), we follow the young women through their struggles of becoming the Professional Wrestlers they are today. Sprinkled with humor and inspiration, this may just be the must-go movie of the year.
