Dear Zindagi (2016)
Gauri Shinde knows how to make you smile. Brings us the finest performance of Alia Bhatt with a commendable SRK as her support.
Finally saw Dear Zindagi. I hope this one isn't as exaggerated as my previous reviews. Gauri Shinde is a really brilliant director, she knows how make good characters by casting perfect actors in them. Alia Bhatt plays the role of a life time. She is excellent through out the movie. The character has extreme depth and very well written. Her performance is almost as good as her role in Udta Punjab if not better. Shah Rukh Khan is a breath of fresh air. Right from the first scene to his final scene. His and Alia Bhatt's chemistry was brilliant. Great Role by him. Ali Zafar, Kunal Kapoor, Angad Bedi and Aditya Roy Kapur are extremely well placed and help Kiara's story move forward. Pluses- Story, Acting, Cinematography, Second half, The scenes which feature Srk and Alia. The family moments of Kiara and her family, her Friends. The execution of the entire movie from event to event. The whole final act which leaves you in a happy mood. The breakdown sequence. The maturity in the direction which takes the movie into a new level. The Dialogues given to SRK. Negatives- The music is good but isn't great. The Editing in the first half could have been better. If you have enjoyed movies like Wake Up Sid, Kapoor and Sons Rockstar, Queen, English Vinglish . Go for this one. One of the best movies of the year. Something which has come kind of close to Udta Punjab.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016)
Performances - Check . Music - Check. Direction - Check. Story - Not so much Check
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil shows why Ranbir Kapoor is one of the finest actors in the country, all he needs is a half a decent script and a good director. He is the one who takes a good Movie into a memorable one. He is charming, confident, makes you cry, makes you laugh. Makes you feel and he is a stand up guy. He emotes very well in the songs. Channa Mereya is the highlight of the movie. Every time the song plays. Ranbir Kapoor is brilliant in each and every moment of Channa Mereya! Song of the year! Anushka Sharma is as usual excellent in her role. Comfortable in her role. Confident and calm. Watch out for the juggal bandi of the old songs. A highlight. She killed it. Aishwarya Rai is extremely beautiful in her role. Her shayaris are brilliant. Lisa Haydon is hilarious in her role. So is Imran Abbas. Fawad Khan is decent. Has a single look in the entire movie and is mostly in the background. The scene which has Shahrukh Khan, Aishwarya and Ranbir is the best sequence in the entire movie.. Ek tarfa pyaar ki taqat.... The music by Pritam is excellent. Even the clothing, Cinematography, Production level, Editing, Friendzoning skills - Killed it. This is a very Hi- fi love story. Private Jets, DJs, Party, Everyone with Gold IPHONES, rich parents, successful in life. Everyone is just unsuccessful in love. Karan Johar man! Overall, a beautifully well made movie with some powerful performances and great music. Keep up the good work Karan Johar.
M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016)
The first half proves why Neeraj Pandey is one of the Best Directors in the country.
"Absolutely magnificent, Dhoni,finishes off in-style, A magnificent stroke into the crowd! India lift the world cup, After 28 years , The party started in the dressing room. and, Its an Indian captain who's been absolutely magnificent in the night of the final." Pretty much one of the best moments of the movie. Massive goosebumps. Ms Dhoni The Untold Story - Is a fantastically made movie which is like two sides of the same coin. The first half which shows why Neeraj Pandey is one of the best directors in the country. While the second half shows why Neeraj Pandey should never make a love story. The movie's main strength is clearly Sushant Singh Rajput who shines in every scene. He has captured the essence of the calm and composed Dhoni and portrayed it brilliantly. The first of the movie is stunning, brilliantly acted, poor special effects with some great dialogues and excellent direction by Neeraj Pandey. The cricketing aspect of Dhoni is so well done. It shows that there is always a team behind a person who is successful. An ode to friendship, struggles, responsibility, compromise and facing life regardless of the unexpected turns and twists. I was in awe how well connected the movie was. Moving from one point to another so effortlessly. Neeraj Pandey's best hour in cinema. The second half starts of well but the two love stories really bring down the movie. The Actresses are likable and all. WTF Neeraj Pandey but the movie moved at a steady pace nevertheless. It was like living the past. The famous India-Pakistan series where Dhoni shines. A lot of moments. It was like a Pleasant flashback. The performances in the movie are brilliant. Sushant Singh Rajput as Dhoni. What a performance! Not his best, I feel Kai Po Che was better. He was seamless, cool, composed, confident. Just like MSD. He breaks down in one scene. Which was brilliant. The Supporting Star Cast is brilliant.Every Actor in the supporting role. FANTASTIC!!! They are a lot of them. Everyone was brilliant. The actresses were strictly average. The music was decent. The movie is a solid 8-8.5/10. The love angles and the bad special effects in the first half are the only things which could have been improved. You'll love it if you loved cricket. You'll like it if you love good cinema.
Well, it was something. The SRK what I grew up watching
FAN is Shah Rukh Khan's best performance till date. His Aryan Khanna is Excellent but his Gaurav Chandana is better. This is the SRK I grew up watching. He can't really top this one. Kudos to the VFX and the prosthetic team for the make up. Maneesh Sharma's direction was brilliant. The story is different. The dialogues are very very good. Habib Faisal has done a good job with the dialogues. The costumes are dope for Gaurav . The editing is crisp and the screenplay is Fantastic. The movie has no songs(That was a bummer) The cinematography was exceptional, great locations. Since, the movie is completely focused on Aryan and Gaurav, the supporting cast don't have much to do. It's good seeing a movies like this is being made. Something different.
It won't be a great success at the Box Office as it's a dark movie.
The flaw what I found was the Special Effects in the first Chase Sequence- You'll notice it.
Well one of the best movies SRK has ever acted in. 9ish/10
What are waiting for ? Go and Watch Bollywood's Best Movie of the Year
I'll be a bit Biased Since i'm an SRK fan .
Prior to the movie , My intention was to go for the first-Day-First Show and Bitch about the movie on my Facebook and Twitter Feed.
When the movie Ended, I wiped a drop of tear from my eye. It was A masterpiece which I had Witnessed. I really thought that MR RKh and mr VVC couldn't re capture the epic-ness that 3 idiots created. From the first trailer , I have been lying to myself that how awful the movie might end up. Though every time I would get a Goosebumps instead.
Let's talk about the Movie .
The movie takes a bit time to start but once Aamir Khan's character is introduced , it just a matter of time that forget that 2 and half hours of life is gone. I always said that Aamir khan needed a great script to back his performance up. BUT for me this Performance is a Top notch higher from any of his best works. I think Shahid Kapur just lost his Filmfare Award for the best actor.
What can be said about Anushka Sharma, a breezy performance . She nails the character. Sushant Singh Rajput - BOSS!! this guy has a Great future. Sanjay Dutt - Magnificent. Mr irani and Shukla sir are fab their roles.
The Direction is Top Notch. The Story is WOW!!!!! I wouldn't talk about it much.
The Music is good. The technical department has done a great Job
I don't wanna spoil this movie much. I went in as a hater and i came out a Happy person.
I'm pretty sure People will this Movie more than 3 idiots .
10/10 A Master Piece by the Team and Mind that Bought you 3 Idiots
p.S - SRK choose Happy New Year over this!!!!
Salman Khan's best work since Dabnagg
I had seen the Telugu version of "Kick" and I wasn't really impressed by it. I felt it had a nice concept but it could have been better. I didn't really have High Hopes for Kick but when I saw the trailer, I felt that this movie could be different. I had a few doubts since the Original version had many unnecessary scenes which hampered the overall impact of the movie.
When I saw this movie , today . I really felt good. It was a well made movie. And Considering the amount of vulgarities shown in the these types of masala movies . Kick didn't have any.
Story Wise : The Story is a bit different from the original. The first half has less BS from the Earlier version. Though it drags and is annoying sometimes(on many occasions , lack of logic) but the decent flow of songs and the antics of Salman Khan keep you in the loop. the Action Sequence was excellent ( Well Choreographed , Excellent VFX)
The 2nd Half is a Game Changer. Apart from a couple of illogical scenes .This half is a total roller coaster ride.Action Sequences are top notch with some excellent cinematography esp in the Poland Sequences.
Acting : Salman Khan is back with a bang. Be it the comic, serious or even the romantic scenes.He was Fantastic in all of them . He was enjoying the role. Randeep Hooda was top notch. Really impressed. Finally he gets a role to show case his talent. Excellent. Badass.
Nawazuddin was a revelation . He was mesmerizing from the his start till the end. He was excellent in his every scene. Jacqueline was sweet in her role. She is extremely beautiful. She didn't seem forced. She did a great job.
The supporting cast were good in their parts.
Music : Songs were not completely forced. One could have easily anticipated them.
Action : Better than Dhoom 3(In terms of Special VFX)
Direction : Considering it's Mr Nadiawala's First movie . It's pretty impressive.
Overall, A perfect Eid Entertainer. Nothing more Nothing less. It has a message which "Jai Ho" failed to convey.
6.5/10 - This is coming from a die hard SRK fan. I'm impressed.
The Second half is a game changer
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Is a fantastic sequel(Surprisingly) .
Andrew Garfield is excellent. He practically lives the character. His One Liners are hilarious. Emma Stone is beautiful. The Chemistry between them is pretty good. Jamie Foxx as Electro is good but as Max he is pretty annoying. The whole of being rejected was really not cool . Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn is solid. His scenes with Garfield are pretty solid. This guy has a great future. The Action Sequences are very good. This is one of the movies I would recommend people watching in 3D. The Story develops in a decent way. The Special Effects are top Notch. Climax is really boring and the movie sometimes fail to connect emotionally.
Last Sequence of the Movie , Pretty BADASSSSSSSSSSSSS!!
Overall, it's a great start to the summer as it's a fun entertainer.
Don't Compare it with CA 2.
Hasee Toh Phasee (2014)
A Fresh movie with Some Great Lead Performances
I have to admit post Gori Tere Pyaar Mein , I had doubts For this movie. Cause GTPM wasn't really up to the Mark.
But I was shocked. This Movie isn't exactly a Rom Com . It's more of a lightly dramatic movie with bits and pieces of Romance.
The Plot : Nikhil (Sidharth Malhotra) is a struggling businessman whose girlfriend Karishma (Adah Sharma) is an actress. Nikhil is a guy who believes once you are committed to a girl, there should be no straying. He is the guy every girl would love to have. Karishma asks Nikhil to arrange INR 5 crores before marriage, which is 7 days later to earn a contract. In the mean time, Nikhil meets Meeta (Parineeti Chopra), Karishma's younger sister, with whom he had a brief encounter 7 years ago.
Positives : The Performances from the Whole Cast.It's so good.
Firstly, Parineeti Chopra! Man, This girl is a revelation. Every Moment and Every scene she is a power house of a performance . Every time I see her in a movie I end up being surprised by her versatility and her confidence. A Filmfare Nomination , Maybe? HER Chinese!!
Secondly , Sidharth Malhotra is such a fantastic actor. I liked him in SOTY. He really gives a calm and composing performance as a person who is struggling in his both personal and professional life. He has his moments to shine in a few scenes.
Thirdly , Adhah Sharma . I really felt bad for her. Never thought that she could be such a good actress . Sadly , her screen time was too less.
The Plot : Clichéd yes, Fun YES! Really a good plot.
The Music : There is a Wedding Song , a Party Song and a Song at the end. But , It's the slow tracks like IShq Bulava, Manchala and Zehneseeb which lift the flow of the movie. Good Job VS ;)
The Fluid Directon : Vinil Mathew's Debut ? Well , Have a good career.
Negatives - The Length of Adah Sharma's Role , The Pace in start gets a bit slow. The Plot is Clichéd. A Few glitches here and there.
Final Word: Hasee toh Phasee is a Great Movie with some good music and great performances . Watch this ONE ! 8/10
Akshay Kumar saves the day!!!
Boss is a watchable movie. Akshay Kumar saves the movie from being a crap fare. He Enacts the part with such charm and ease , it's hard to hate him.
Story : It's a Paper thin Plot. Less on logic More on Flying Emotion Sequences. Acting : Akshay Kumar lives up to the Title "Boss" , he an energetic performance. Ronit Roy is a Revelation but sadly he isn't given enough screen time. Shiv Pandit (Shaitan) is good but it's not the right movie for him. Aditi Rao Hydari is useless in the movie , hard to see an actress with this caliber to play an eye candy. Mithun Sir and Danny Sir are good in their parts.
Music: Hum Na Tode is a treat to watch. Rest of the Album is average . Songs Just start playing.
Direction : The direction is fine .
Overall: An average over-the-top action fare which will be enjoyed by Akshay Kumar Fans.
I expected a lot more . 4.5/10
The isn't Zanjeer we wanted! Sanjay Dutt is the Saving Grace
It's clear that Bollywood wants to make Quick Money by Making Remakes . They Practically Screwed this Remake. I believe that Ram Charan is a Great Actor. He tried but debuting in a Bollywood movie which is a remake of a classic is stupid. Priyanka Chopra is a great actress we saw her in Barfi but does she have to shed clothes and be an arm candy in the movie? Why? Prakash Raj is Stereo-typed. Mahie Gill must watch her Previous movies and learn acting.
The Only Good thing in the Movie is Sanjay Dutt. He does a Fab job but sadly his Screen time isn't that much which is BAD!!
The Story is hammed. the Direct by Apoorva Lakhia is below average. the Music isn't great.
The action is good.
Overall, A Below Average fare.
White House Down (2013)
White House Down. Better than Expected
Whenever I go for a Movie , I am pretty Optimistic about it. Surprisingly, I had a sort of a weird feeling about this movie as I was Disappointed with Die Hard 5 earlier this year.
The Movie starts of slowly and as soon as it's gets the pace you are in a for a fun ride.
The action sequences are shot beautifully and looks like Mr Roland Loves Destroying the WHITE House. Even The White House is destroyed in a Awesome Manner which looks satisfying.
However, The Plot is CHEESY(What are we expecting) but still it grips you till the last moment.
Nevertheless , We Have fine performances from Channing Tatum who is improving as an actor. He has the charm and screen presence which is required in a Leading actor. Jamie Foxx is extremely cool as the President. One of the major Pluses of the movie is the chemistry between these two leads. They gel up beautifully with each other and the one liners are extremely funny. Maggie is Good with her role. Rest of the cast in their Places.
The Drawbacks of the movie are that firstly the script is cheesy, the girl who plays Channing Tatum's Daughter turns out to be annoying and Plus the movie takes time to set itself up.
To Sum Up, We have a Fun Summer Movie Here. Don't expect to be a Logical and Serious Movie. With Great performances and some good Action.
Recommend ! 7.5/10
THE DARK KNIGHT of Arrow!
It would be No Doubt that ARROW would be a part of Justice League Movie. This Season Finale is EPIC!!! Perfect. This is the first time in Arrow , that they grip you till the last second. Amazing Episode. Stephen Amell is first rate. I won't be surprised when he turns into a Hollywood A Lister in the near future. The Story is gripping. It's High on Action and emotions and is filled with enough twists and turns. The flash Back was Awesome but saving Starling was awesome. It shows the Human Side of Oliver. Colin Donell was extremely good esp his scenes with Amell. The supporting Cast was really good. Overall a Straight 10/10. The episode was "THE DARK KNIGHT" of the show. Worth Waiting for Season 2
You have to be a 'Himmatwala' to watch ''Himmatwala''
You need to be brave, courageous and strong to watch this Movie. This more like a Torture than an Entertainer. Sajid Khan Claimed that this is the best movie he made. HE must visit a Doctor. Ajay Devgn shouldn't sign movies which are remakes. It's sad and disappointing to see a fantastic actor losing his track by doing these crap Masala movies.
Well Now for the Movie
Direction : It's weak and not worth commenting. This worst Sajid Khan's Movie ever. Dialogues are average. Looks like a 10 year old wrote it.
Performances : Ajay Devgn tries hard but the script is awful. Ajay Is just okay. He looks convincing though. He has a one or two good scenes but that 's not enough. Tamannaah Bhatia is wasted . She is beautiful and has a screen presence but she is more like a Talking Doll. Mahesh Manjrekar is good. Paresh Rawal is the SAVING GRACE of the movie. His performance will make you laugh. Rest of the cast is purely average.
Music : The original was famous for it's music and it's dance set pieces. The music isn't great expect the 2 songs "Taki Taki" and " Naino Mein Sapna". But the choreography is AWFUL.There are 2 item songs. Not Great.
Action : It's over the ROOF TOP. Senseless to be frank.
Overall : It's a Waste of time. Better watch "JOLLY L.L.B" or 'Mere Dad Ki Maruti' Wait for It : It has A TIGER!!!! AJAY DEVGN FIGHTS WITH A TIGER AND WINS!!! YES A TIGER!!! OHH GOD WHY???
This is a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!
This movie can can be Compared his Sister's with Tees Maar Khan and His Brother-in-Law's Joker.
The Following: Love Hurts (2013)
Very good Episode.
I really like this show. It's very Complex in Nature. I have accepted the fact that something like could take place .I think that's the reason why I really enjoy this show.
The plot is very good. the performances are really amazing esp from Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy. They steal the show. The Anti- Happy thing is very good. Most of the shows either have a Happy/Sad Ending. This show something of a Mix. There is happiness but it is sidelined by the sorrow.
Most of the people hate this show. If you hate this show then kindly stop watching it. Stop whining about it. In short , If you accept the concept then watch it.Otherwise skip it.
Castle at his Best!!
Well this is my first review. I am happy that it's for my favorite show 'Castle'. Well Let me Begin this is the best season. Believe me this is the BEST EPISODE of CASTLE. This episodes proves that Nathan Fillon is a Fantastic Actor. He really doesn't leave you disappointed . He proves that he can handle emotional roles with ease. His dialogues are clever and not over-the-top or not even chessy The Plot is very unpredictable.It's original. The direction was sharp. It didn't leave any room for any errors. The Paris sequence is shot very well. Nothing is over hyped. The action is good. This is not a Rip off of Taken. the performances by the rest of the crew is good but it is over shadowed by Fillion's Flawless Performance.
Undoubtedly , This episode deserves a 10/10.
Keep calm and Watch CASTLE!!
YES YES YES!!!! Sir Kamal Haasan Has done the Impossible!!!(Hindi Version)
When I first saw the promo,This is the first time I wanted wanted to go for a South Indian Actor's movie in theater. there are very few movies which actually surprise me and surpass my expectation. When i saw the IMDb ratings of 9.6/10 I clearly thought that it was over hyped.I was TOTALLY wrong. This movie blasted my expectations to another level. First of All,Sir Kamal Haasan has done the impossible!!! Undoubtedly this is one of the best Indian Movie ever made. The Direction is SHARP and SMART. NOTHING in this Movie looks OVER-THE-TOP esp. the action sequences. You people thought Endiran or Ra.One had the best Visuals. You are WRONG!! Vishwaroop has taken special effects to a new level. This is also the first time where nothing looks forced. the Story is Top-Class and the editing is sharp. Performance Wise - Kamal Haasan All the Way. he leads the movie from Front! The performance of Rahul Bose is Excellent. Andrea Jeremiah, Shekar Kapur,and Pooja Kumar are good also. Watch it for Kamal Haasan. Indeed this is the fist time an Indian Thriller is on Par with Hollywood.
10/10 is the least I can give!
Waiting for the Sequel!!!!
