Journey of EMOTIONS of a GREAT NATION Called "BHARAT"
A Movie which i was skeptical about watching, as i had heard so many mixed reviews from various sources.But Somewhere in my Heart I knew this Film is worth watching. Amidst this ongoing battle between thoughts, My son walks in & tells me that I should watch the movie & then decide for myself if it was worth watching or not. I listened to my heart and my son both. Finally i managed to watch BHARAT first thing in the morning today...
The film has its own journey, which is wonderfully portrayed & as an audience one gets connected with it from the beginning, as pre-partition stories are very much alive in everyone's mind, heart & soul, especially for the ones who have lived that era & passed on the stories to their children & grandchildren...
This film's story is not just a normal story or Story of a Nation, it is also a story of HOPE, LOVE, FAMILY, FRIENDSHIP, SACRIFICE & UNITY...
Every actor in this film has done justice to their respective role & showcased their character beautifully... be it Disha Patni, Ayesha Raza, Kumud Mishra, Jackie Shroff , Tabu. Brijender Kala is awesome as usual. And Sunil Grover's best performance till now. Be it comedy or an emotional scene, he has done a great job. Sonali Kulkarni has once again proven her versatility.
Now the hero and the heroine. Both are brilliant. Salman Khan rocks- emotion, humour, action scenes and look- he is the best. The best scene was of pirates. I never Imagined that an action fight scene can be converted into a complete comedy with fun element of Mr. Amitabh Bachchan being loved by Africans, which acts as a bargaining chip with Pirates & the matter solves peacefully.
A girl can be won by love, not by mere fighting.
You never feel bored for even a single moment in the entire film. One feels like we are living Bharat's life alongside him. The partition scenes brought back memories of my mother(MAATI) and father(BAUJI). They also used to stay in Gujranwala but thankfully they migrated to India before the massacres. I was taken back to the stories my nani used to tell us about partition- how they left behind their houses, their cattle, even those Muslim friends who were like a family to them. My aunt's house and her wedding gifts- all were burnt down. Seeing this film, i was genuinely taken back to the past.
Direction & background score both are great. Music for me was just about OK. 'Zinda' song is my favourite. Casting is aptly done.... Film has emotions, humour, entertainment, perfect masala for audience....Ending was superb with a great message that "we should accept change"- we should adapt to the newer times. Child actors have performed brilliantly.... In the end I must say that don't search google for reviews to watch movie, go and make your own opinion and I am sure you will not get disappointed. It is a clean film with wholesome entertainment- fit for a family viewing.
The only thing i dislike about the film was Katrina's hairstyle. Although she has acted very well in this Film, which is one of those very few Performances of her's which we get to see on such rare Occasions. In my view, Curly hair didn't suit her at all. The makers/Hairstylist should have done a better job with her hair.
Overall, In my opinion Bharat is a super duper hit movie. A must Watch!!!
Nanu Ki Jaanu (2018)
Nanu Ki Jaanu, Movie, A Review by Madhu Anand Chandhock
A horror movie generally evokes visuals of an old haveli, or ruins, a white-sari-clad hair-blowing crooning female ghost, eerie sounds from around etc but "Nanu Ki Jaanu" is away from all this. It's a movie with a difference where horror has been presented with doses of humour.
The film carries a message in the end that i shall refrain from telling as it would be a spoiler.
In our daily running about to earn a living, many a times we think of going out for dinner or a movie to relax ourselves- if that is so, i assure you to watch Nanu Ki Jaanu- it is a laugh riot. Yes, by the end, you will get a little emotional too, but all in all, it's a comedy. Horror comedy.
The film has memorable characters, be it the building's watchman (Ganesh Kumar), or the abusive husband (Sameer Siddique) or the pitiable wife (Aditi Kalkunte). The performance of Manu Rishi (who is also the film's writer) as one of Abhay's friend's is superb. Abhay himself has played a character that is away from his usual and he has done an outstanding job at that. Patralekhaa, who one wishes could have got some more screen time, has played her character quite admirably.
Rajesh Sharma as the father of a single daughter is brilliant! Gifted actors such as Brijendra Kala, who has portrayed the character of a neighbour and as always is first-rate, should have got more screen space. Manoj Pahwa has a guest appearance but as we know, talented actors only need a few minutes to leave their mark.
The songs are good- especially the love song though it could have been shot better. Dhruv Dhalla's background score is very good! Kashyap Chandhock's casting is unique and very effective. The actors leave a lasting impression even with their bit roles, such as the watchman's scene with Abhay asking him for a drink, or his naughty smile, or his Ghost Buster cameo. Or be it Mahendra Shrivas as the kachoriwala or Himani Shivpuri's full justice to the role of the mother. Chirag Sethi has done a fair job. The Special kid, played by Spandan Chaturvedi of Tv Serial Udan fame is brilliant .
Faraz Haider's direction is good; the film keeps you hooked till the end.
Mika's song, which is quite good and has also been filmed equally well, should have been part of the regular narrative of the story rather than being in the end. I am personally not in favour of the current trend of end credit songs because most people do not stay on to watch it.
The Jagran scene could have been better. The song filmed on Sapna Choudhary was not catchy.
I have seen the film twice and even the second time, i found it as much enjoyable. You should also watch the film at least once; in fact share your own reviews!
All in all, Inbox Pictures "Nanu Ki Jaanu" is a great film. It could have done with slightly greater publicity and promotion. Its direction, dialogue delivery and characters leave the audience in splits! I wish the film a super hit!

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
A Masterpiece of Hope, Friendship, Patience, Life, film-making & Performances by the entire Cast!
Shawshank Redemption made me feel the above TAGLINE when i first saw the film. It moved me even more when i saw it for the second time under different circumstances. Till now it still amazes me how this film can keep motivating me and my friends whenever we see the film again.
That Explains it all. Short & true.
