Ae Dil Hai Mushkil: A Quick Review

Here comes a complicated, contemporary, mature, quadrilateral love story from Karan Johar…well not actually. It is a story of Love, Love lost and Lust with sprinklings of friendship. KJo- true to his reputation weaves a web for his NRI audience with a multi- country, multi-emotional, musical that has you riveted to your seat for the most part atleast. And thankfully there are no uncles, aunts, bhangra songs or sunflower fields!!!Continue reading “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil: A Quick Review”

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Movie Review: Except for the Last 30 Minutes, the Film is a Total Hoot

aedilhaimushkil-ranbir-aishwarya-anushkaAll of us are becoming increasingly impatient. Before you even read this review, you perhaps want to know whether you should watch Ae Dil Hai Mushkil or not; and if the film is worth all the hype and expectations. I usually reserve this verdict for the later part of the review but considering this is the season of Diwali generosity and more importantly some things need to be stated first up, I will answer that coveted question by putting forth a single argument or plea. if you want to call it that.Continue reading “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Movie Review: Except for the Last 30 Minutes, the Film is a Total Hoot”

Housefull 3 Movie Review : Jaundice Better Or Typhoid?

Housefull-31-2016-Official-HD-PosterWhat do you really expect when you walk in to a theater to watch a film like Housefull 3? If you have been aware of the previous two films of the franchise, then obviously, you will expect the silly and the dumb to play out in equal proportions, right? If you have not, then it might be nightmarish. But then Housefull is a genre film, created by Sajid Khan, who helmed the reins of previous two films as well. However, in this one, producer Sajid Nadiadwala has handed over the command to Sajid – Farhad, who have written many films for Rohit Shetty and directed the 2014 disaster, Entertainment. No big hopes, there! In my honest opinion, Housefull was a decent watch but Housefull 2 got excruciating. That apart, when the franchise is sort of successful and into its third film, one cannot continue complaining about the genre of it all. Yes, Housefull films rest on wafer-thin plots, lot of exaggerations, silly jokes, under-written female characters, cheap potshots on sensitive issues and a hell lot of caricature. But can they entertain? Because if they can, without crossing the line of humor of course, then the purpose is fulfilled. Intelligence may be insulted but the ticket price cannot be considered to have been completely wasted, no matter what you choose to believe.Continue reading “Housefull 3 Movie Review : Jaundice Better Or Typhoid?”

Queen Movie Review

What kind of feelings would you succumb to, if your long ’emotionally’ endearing courtship with your lover ends, on the eve of your marriage, because your fiancee suddenly dumped you, pulling a lame excuse? What if you were shy, timid, semi-urban Delhi girl, who has been tuned to say “yes’ to everything in the name of good manners! Cry your heart out? Become suicidal? Emotionally threaten your lover? Be guilty of excessive trust and lose faith in love and humanity? Hate yourself for what you are? Keep reminiscing your past memories, so that you can die slowly daily? Literally beg him to marry you, as you will never find an alliance again? Reflect indignantly on the innumerable ways, he has influenced you for so many years? Lie in bed and plot revenge? Go into depression?Continue reading “Queen Movie Review”

Queen Movie Review: This Queen Will Steal Your Hearts Alright

Queen Poster NewKangna Ranaut is one Bollywood actress who has always been an enigma of sorts for me. While she had shown promise with her initial films like Gangster, Woh Lamhe and Life in A Metro and even won a National Award for Fashion, she was soon getting typecast in the roles that were coming her way. If that wasn’t the case then the films she chose tended to be outrageously bad like Kites, Game, Double Dhamaal, Rascals etc. In fact barring a Tanu Weds Manu I did not personally like her in any of the films she featured in of late for various reasons. Things seemed to slowly change last year with her presence in films like Shootout at Wadala and Krrish 3, and all of a sudden she seemed to be signing up films which were revolving around her like Rajjo (that it ultimately turned to be a dud is an altogether different story), Queen, Revolver Rani etc. Continue reading “Queen Movie Review: This Queen Will Steal Your Hearts Alright”
