Raakshas Movie Review: Uneven blend of reality and fiction

What if I tell you that I recently saw a film that tries to merge a dark fantasy and a violent real world with a little girl in the centre of it all? In the background of a bloody battle between the establishment and leftist rebels, the little girl is asked to complete certain tasks by a mythical creature, to get something she strongly desires. Well, no, I am not talking about Guillermo del Toro’s film Pan’s Labyrinth (2006). But the film i saw by debutante writer-director Dnyanesh Zoting borrows the above elements and more from the highly acclaimed Spanish movie.Continue reading “Raakshas Movie Review: Uneven blend of reality and fiction”

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review: AG goes from Oscar to ‘Ab Bas Kar’

Every Independence Day we like to remember Indian History to be proud of it. This I- Day is different. People who forget history (Khelen Hum Jee Jaan se, Whats your Rashee, Everest etc.) are condemned to repeat it. Ashutosh Gowariker seems to have lost his itch, though his last good movie (Jodha Akbar) was 8 years ago.

Sardaar Gabbar Singh Movie Review: All Sound and Fury, But Hey What about the Story?

The Salman Khan starrer Dabangg (2010) was not only a trendsetter of sorts in Hindi films; it even inspired similar versions in a few other languages, most notable of them being Gabbar Singh (2012) in Telugu. Despite basically using the same plot outline of Dabangg, director Harish Shankar made an effort to make a few simple changes, basically adapting it in a way that made sure that the personality of superstar Pawan Kalyan was well highlighted, making the film a delight to watch for fans and even the general audience. It was but natural that there would be an extension of the brand Gabbar Singh, after all who wouldn’t want to put his/her money on a winning horse.But with Dabangg 2 not meeting with the same reception as Dabangg the prospect of once again going for an adaptation was ruled out. After the mega success of Attarintiki Daaredi the project was announced, but there were frequent changes, the director, DOP and even the title ended up finally changing. What remained constant eventually was the presence of Pawan Kalyan and producer Sharrath Marar.Continue reading “Sardaar Gabbar Singh Movie Review: All Sound and Fury, But Hey What about the Story?”

Rocky Handsome Movie Review : Superman? Batman? Naw, John Abraham!

Maybe it’s just me, but then there is something really charming about a man in black suit going around assassinating people like its a part of his daily routine. When Director Lee Jeung-beom made The Man From Nowhere (2010), little did he know that the film would be ripe for an Indian remake. Thankfully, Director Nishikant Kamat and Ritesh Shah (Screenplay/Dialogues) don’t mess too much with the original material and serve it right back to us in India as Rocky Handsome. What works for them is John Abraham fits right in as the lead and also produces an otherwise not so masala film as the trailers would have shown. And ahoy, Rocky Handsome turns out quite a good watch on a weekend where you have a largely disappointing magnum opus releasing with it. Continue reading “Rocky Handsome Movie Review : Superman? Batman? Naw, John Abraham!”

Hero (2015) Movie Review: Boring Drivel

We are living in fluid flux ridden times, we Indians. We are. In almost every public sphere of life and existence, there is a decided shift against inheritance and for merit. Be it politics, business or even smaller work spaces, the idea of letting sons take over your mantle whether they deserve it or not is fast losing the social acceptance it enjoyed all these years.Continue reading “Hero (2015) Movie Review: Boring Drivel”

Lai Bhaari Movie Review: Old Wine in an Attractive Tetrapack

The year 2013 saw Duniyadari smash all Marathi box office records, only to see history repeat itself in less than 6 months with Timepass going a step further in the beginning of 2014. We always hear about filmmakers either interested more in the aesthetics and artistic nature of their films or filmmakers who are more interested in how successful their films turn out to be. And there’s that select breed of filmmakers who manage to straddle both Worlds comfortably. But what would you say about a film that is created not as just a creative vehicle, but more like a product with multiple stakeholders backing the same? Imagine a deliberate attempt to create a successful product life cycle, with the product being a film in this case. Well whether you are with me so far or not, I am sure the rest of the post will surely put things into perspective.Continue reading “Lai Bhaari Movie Review: Old Wine in an Attractive Tetrapack”
