Bang Bang Movie Review: Bang for the Buck? Not Quite!

When I first heard of Hollywood hit Knight and Day (2010) being officially adapted in Hindi as “Bang Bang” I just sighed in semi disbelief.  In my opinion Knight and Day was a rather ordinary Hollywood entertainer, which only worked due to the lovely lead pair comprising of Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. Well to be honest their Indian counterparts, Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif seemed to be perfect choices to carry on the same roles in Hindi, but I was wondering why a studio like Fox Star had to not just look at shelling out money to buy the remake rights, but also want to invest mega bucks in a film which has no novelty as such. Adding to the gloomy scenario was the fact that the film was to be directed by Siddharth Anand, someone who has had moderate success making romantic films (Salaam Namaste, Tara Rum Pum, Bachna Ae Haseeno, Anjaana Anjaani). Considering this was to be an action film I was wondering why the studio would entrust the film to a director who’s never dabbled with the genre earlier.Continue reading “Bang Bang Movie Review: Bang for the Buck?

Edge Of Tomorrow(2014) – Start. Save. Restart.

Language : English | Running Time : 113 Minutes | Director : Doug Liman

There are times when a genre has been pumped up so much that one stops caring after a point. The world is about end has been a common gimmick supplied to us by Hollywood,especially. I’ve become so callous when it comes to this genre that I’ve stopped caring about who dies or who lives in these movies. In Edge Of Tomorrow, I faced the same problem. Why should we care? There’s nothing about the people here that makes you want to root for them, except for the leads – Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. With these two people playing the lead, I started caring about what actually happens to a person in the film. I cared, only for these two. Doug Liman‘s “Edge Of Tomorrow” works firstly for me because I could care about what happened to its leads. It worked much more for me, because of the way it was constructed.Continue reading “Edge Of Tomorrow(2014) – Start. Save. Restart.”

“Tom Cruise is one of the best humans you could ever meet”- Emily Blunt

What was it about Edge of Tomorrow and that resonated with you and made you want to be a part of this film?

EMILY BLUNT:  Well, there were two things that drew me to the project and those two things are Tom Cruise and Doug Liman.  I just thought that was a pretty epic combination.  I’ve admired Doug’s work for so long and I think he’s sort of carved out new space within a genre, which is very appealing to me when it comes to a sci-fi movie especially.  And Tom … there’s no one better than Tom Cruise.  [Laughs]  So, in my first foray into the action world, it was very cool to have him as a support system showing me the way, really, because this movie and this type of role is new for me.

But I loved the story.  I thought it was the most unusual love story I’ve ever come across, if you can even call it that.  And I was really drawn to playing that character, because she’s such a bad-ass, so lethal and emotionally shut down.  So, it was just exciting for me to play someone who might be the toughest person I’ve ever come across.Continue reading ““Tom Cruise is one of the best humans you could ever meet”- Emily Blunt”
