Elsa and Anna have done it again. Read the Frozen II Movie Review now… They killed it and has melted everyone with their charm and Elsa’s magical power. Well, Why was Elsa is born with magical powers? What sound it was chasing her for long? The answer is calling her and tormenting her kingdom, which she wants to save. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In “Frozen,” Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In “Frozen II,” she must hope they are enough.

The sequel Frozen II Movie Review

It is the sequel to Disney’s 2013 blockbuster which stretches the adventures of Arendelle’s magical Queen Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel); her kind sister, Anna (Kristen Bell); and everyone’s favourite snowman, that’s Olaf (Josh Gad). This time around, the actors engage a perilous journey to a mystical enchanted forest, wishing to discover the source of Elsa’s powers. By which, the sisters would learn and discover the secret of their parents’ deaths and backgrounds. Viewers may feel a lot of surprises and heart-touching moments coming in. All thanks to the special effects and visuals that made the flashbacks beautiful and appealing. Not to miss is the laughter and humour elements thrown by Olaf..ohh he is my favourite. 

 

Frozen2_Elsa_Icy_Blast movie review

Music The Charm

Of course — big musical numbers, and new songs added matching the earlier Frozen is an attracting factor. The sequel is conclusively a bit more powerful than the original, which is the good part. The musical visualization that depicted the spirits, the Expect perilous graphics of forest, scenes of elemental spirits chasing and attacking Arendelle/the main characters with the wind, water, fire, and more are worth watching. Feels like another world. 

The music (again co-composed and written by spouses Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez) doesn’t include an apparent follower to the once-ubiquitous “Let It Go,” although “Into the Unknown” features the same loving crescendo of Menzel’s beautiful voice. Several of the songs sound related, but that’s to be anticipated from musicians who hit the jackpot with a distinct musical style. Groff’s Kristoff finally gets his big solo, “Lost in the Woods,” which is performed in the style of an ’80s power ballad video and should evoke more than a few laughs from Gen X and older parents. Anna’s song “The Next Right Thing” is compelling and bittersweet, and Olaf’s “When I’m Older” has the amusing tone audiences anticipate from the cute snowman.

Spoiler alert!

— a couple of upsetting (but fleeting) deaths. Stressing everything are positive messages about sisterhood, empowerment, approval, patience, determination, and true love, and both Anna and Elsa are examples of mighty women who lead positively and communicate with and support each other. This is Frozen II Movie Review.

One of the most exquisitely animated films of the decade, filled with striking visual pyrotechnics and incredible attention to detail. I was in love with Lion King and have had my reviews perfectly done for the cast, animation and effects. But I must say Frozen II is all that you guys need to watch. Don’t miss it.

Movie Review Ford v Ferrari – Ford v Ferrari gained overwhelmingly and detailed critical reception, with a 92% score at Rotten Tomatoes revealing not just universal recommendation but completely stellar recognition. When audiences and critics all love a film this much and it opens at the top of the box office charts, that’s when actual reviews matter the most. Linking with fans testimonials to become “everyone says it’s great” must-see viewing. 

 

Bales FordVFerrari

 

The competition witnessed no match for the super-charged racing film this weekend, where on one side we see as Charlie’s Angeles and The Good Liar they both failed to keep the pace with Ford v Ferrari. (not bad films though, read my review on Charlie’s Angeles). Both films are ending their North American debuts with less than one-third of Ford v Ferrari’s take.

Movie Review Ford v Ferrari – Star Cast

The star cast is also quite strong – The Academy Award-winners Matt Damon and Christian Bale star in FORD v FERRARI. For all the car racing fans outta there, it is based on the extraordinary true story of the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and the courageous British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale). They both battled together with the corporate intervention, the laws of physics, and their own retired rogues to build an unprecedented race car for Ford Motor Company. Later they take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966. What a remarkable journey and movie it is.

One of the year’s top chart Hollywood contenders raced into theaters full throttle this weekend, as Disney-Fox’s Ford v Ferrari scored the top spot at the box office and a rare perfect grade from audiences.

Storyline

dream girl movie review

 

Dream Girl Movie Review – The Hero Becomes The Heroine – Ayushmann delivers yet again in this hatke comedy of errors. This time he has again nailed it. His growth has been steady for quite a while now and has been doing a great job. In the movie, since his childhood to the time, he becomes Karam who is desperate to find a job and then lands into working in a call centre mocking women’s voices. In the movie, it is shown that since he was a kid he used to mimic the voice of his teachers to save his friend. He also becomes Radha and plays ram-Leela in his childhood. And is often respected by the people in the small town of Gokul for his roles and regularly for the voice he can accentuate.

 

dream girl movie review

 

Continued…

But his father, Jagjit Singh (Annu Kapoor) wasn’t happy with this. His dad needs him to find a steady job, where he doesn’t have to don the woman act and Karam is also very clear that he will play these roles only till he finds a regular job. Which he does soon accept, but the only glitch is it compels him to be ‘Pooja’ at a call centre for sex chats. Soon enough, ‘Pooja’ has a variety of men and a woman besotted by her. And each of them craves to either meet or marry her. All this while Karam’s girlfriend Mahi (Nushrat Bharucha) is unaware of his double life.

The Review

‘Dream Girl’ is placed as an out and out comedy, so don’t demand any nuanced probe into cross-dressing or investigating one’s sexuality. There is none of that. Possibly, one has been plundered by Ayushmann Khurrana’s choice of films so far, which always succeed to push the cover. Nevertheless, director Raaj Shaandilya contrives to provoke some significance laughter in this situational comedy. But there is also a blob of humour which tramps into the eccentric, double centred and at times attacking zone. As a variety of characters and circumstances are bunged in, the screenplay moves at a leftover pace. The songs, ‘Radhe Radhe’ and ‘Dil Ka Telephone’ add some of the peps to the wavering plot.

 

dream girl movie review

The Verdict

In 2018, Bollywood’s off-beat hero Ayushmann Khurrana took over the box office with two back-to-back hits Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho. The fan-favourite actor delivered another blockbuster Article 15 that won viewers over with its socio-political message. Ayushmann is reverting to the big screen now, this time as the hero as well as the heroine in Dream Girl. For me, it was a worth watching movie. You will come laughing out loud from the theatres.

The director has put his writing expertise of years indicting scripts for noted comedians to its maximum use, and consequently, the overtly funny dialogues and comic one-liners give life to this ardent drama. The sanctimonious climax, though, with a message that won’t inevitably register in your mind looks a bit off-track. But Dream Girl, overall, is a winner for sure.

 

My Ratings: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Do you know: Avengers: Endgame” is the third-most-expensive film ever made

Avengers-Endgame-MCU-Rewatch review

Drifting in space with no food or water, Tony Stark tend to send a message to Pepper Potts as his oxygen source starts to shrink. In the interim, the remaining Avengers — Thor, Black Widow, Captain America and Bruce Banner – requisitely have to figure out a way to bring back their bested partners for an epic showdown with Thanos — the evil demigod who destroyed the planet and the universe.

This is Avengers: Endgame

– it’s being a good time now for this movie as it is already released, but today for me it’s time to write the review. De read it fully. Just to start with my review I would say that please do not except a typical happy ending for this movie as there isn’t any. And two of our favourite Avengers would be dead in the movie. Now, this is not a spoiler and I’m sure most of them must have watched this movie by now.

Background: After the must-see confrontation that was ‘Infinity War,’ the Russo brothers bring a more fan-facing three-hour follow-up, gratifying allegiance to Marvel Cinematic Universe.

For those who haven’t seen it yet, there’s a spoiler alert Avengers: EndGame

It is the culmination of a 10-year-old and more than many years for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Viewers have had a year to grieve about the loss of Spider-Man, Star-Lord, and Black Panther (whom they’d only just met two months earlier in the movies and comics), and to cultivate theories as to where directing siblings Anthony and Joe Russo might bullock things from here. Maybe all those characters weren’t really dead. Maybe the lasting Avengers just needed to travel inside the Soul Stone to get them back. Or maybe “Avengers: Endgame” would have to possibly be that most desperate of chronicle cheats — time travel — to undo the impairment caused by Thanos (the purple-skinned, multi-chinned baddie so fascinatingly performed by Josh Brolin).

avengers end game movie review

The surprise for the audiences

The component of surprise and the excitement of discovery are everything in these movies, so every effort has been made to curtail spoilers. Yes, “Avengers: Endgame” is the most sprawling film yet, and yes, it endeavours to provide emotional liberation for several of fans’ favourite characters. It’s even nontoxic to say that “Endgame” shifts the focus from prodigal, effects-driven displays of universe-saving — diverse though they remain — to the more human cost of gallantry, which comes at a great individual sacrifice.

The start to the Endgame

The opening scene of “Endgame” go back to that intolerable moment from the point of view of Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), who take a seat out the previous fight to spend time with his wife and kids, such that the anguish he feels in watching them evaporated in the Spur-of-the-moment that will come to stand for what all living things must practice as the bystander are their friends and family who disappear.

And then nearly after two and a half hours of hardcore comic-book acting — blinking solemn storytelling with self-deprecatory zingers designed to show that Marvel doesn’t take itself too utterly — “Endgame” cloaks all that logic-bending babble with a series of authoritative emotional scenes. Whereas all the fatalities suffered at the end of “Infinity War” felt shadily like a stunt that would be undone in this film, these substantial character moments exemplify the spirit of peculiar ransom that certain personalities consciously make on behalf of the team and the universe as outsized.

avengers end game review

Time and again, “Endgame” clearly puts the point that family is all that matters, whether it is with biological ties or means — like Iron Man, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, and Thor have experienced — or those bogus by duty. The final carryout from this decade-long voyage is that heroism isn’t well-defined by courage or super-abilities, but by what one gives up for the superior good. Among the many hindrances of the Snap was that it raided so many great charismas — and gazillions of unidentified creatures throughout the galaxy — of proactively building that choice. “Endgame” isn’t precisely a do-over, but it shapes to an extremely more substantial conclusion.

Bollywood is always known for thrillers, and movies infused with mysteries and suspense have its own audience in Bollywood industry. Reasons for this are many, they keep you stick to your chair; they thrill you every second for guessing what is coming next, etc. With its own set of audience, thriller movies have created their own niche in Bollywood. On the contrary, there are some underrated movies that seem to be intriguing yet not hyped much. For example, Nirdosh a suspense thriller of ZEE5 that casts Arbaaz Khan, Manjari Fadnnis is one of the best thrillers of 2018. However, it did not grab the kind of attention it deserved from the audience. You would probably know quite a few of them and must have watched as well, but here’s a rundown of a few, Check the list below:

Nirdosh

Let’s kick things off with the movie that I blew me away recently. Nirdosh dropped in the theatre in 2018. This suspense thriller cast Arbaaz Khan, Manjari Phadnis in the lead roles. The story revolves around a family of three that came to a toppling affair when a paying guest Mahek Chahal comes to stay with them. The movie is directed by Pradeep Rangwani and Subroto Paul. They have tried to make the story engaging through a brutish investigating Inspector Lokhande who arrests Manjari Fadnnis as a prime suspect. Later in the story, we realise that everyone seems to be a suspect in this murder mystery thriller. Arbaaz Khan looks handsome as always, and Ashmit Patel too had an appealing look in the movie. The other cast too did a fair amount of justice to their role. You can Watch Nirdosh Online anytime you want.

8X10 Tasveer

Directed by Nagesh Kukunoor – 8X10 Tasveer is a Hindi psychological thriller starring Akshay Kumar, Ayesha Takia, Sharmila Tagore, and Javed Jaffrey. Right from the bat, one can see that the movie travels along with the character Jai, who is a forest ranger in Canada with a unique trait of seeing things in past just by starring at the photographs. He developed this mysterious talent when he died in an accident under mysterious circumstances. Further, he starts looking for his father’s murderers with the help of his psychic powers. The cast of the movie leads movies were able to keep me hooked to my chair. Akshay Kumar – the star himself has done wonderfully well. Ayesha Takia plays a good role but, to be very honest, it was not that impactful, whereas Javed has justified the character’s needs. Overall this thriller is a must watch for all thriller lovers.

Shagird

The 2011 thriller is directed by none other than Tigmanshu Dhulia and stars Nana Patekar as Hanumant Singh, Mohit Ahlawat as Mohit Kumar and Rimi Sen as Varsha Mathur in the lead roles. With such a food casting crew, Tigmanshu Dhulia cooked up a great cop thriller. In Shagird, a rookie cop questions the tactics of his bosses and tries to track the kidnappers of his girlfriend. Unlike the others mentioned in the list, Shagird has jiffies of authority and an uneven, clammy texture that thuds particularly when the camera twists through the bylanes of Old Delhi. It is a crime action thriller which starts with Bunty Bhaiya, who is the gangster and has been arrested in Ghaziabad. What follows forms the entire story of the movie. In a nutshell, it is one cop thriller that no Nana Patekar fan can afford to miss.

Phobia

Phobia – I must say that it is a must watch movie for a Radhika Apte fan. She is a phenomenal actress and has done all the justice to her role in this psychological thriller which got released in 2016. The movie is directed by Pavan Kirpalani and produced by Viki Rajani. Phobia revolves around the life of Mehak Deo (Radhika Apte) who suffers from agoraphobia. She is not able to respond and interact with people who are unknown to her and thus, remains aloof in her apartment. To make matters worse turns out that the apartment that she holds herself in has a traumatised history of a tenant who inexplicably vanished. The plot is interesting, and the background score from Karan Gaur makes the whole story appealing and edged.

Phobia Movie ZEE5 Spirited Blogger

Bollywood has been superlative in terms of cinema, and the above mentioned are a few movies that did not get the response from the audience. Had they got the right amount of attention, many of them would have ended up as future classics. Nonetheless, they are spectacular in their own way. Watch them on ZEE5 whenever you want.

John Abraham’s Espionage RAW – Romeo Akbar Walter Bollywood Movie Review

RAW - Romeo Akbar Walter Movie Review – Spirited Blogger

Starring John Abraham, Mouni Roy, Jackie Shroff, Sikandar Kher and Raghubir Yadav in key roles, RAW – Romeo Akbar Walter has been directed by Robbie Grewal. Music director: Ankit Tiwari, Shabbir Ahmed, Sohail Sen, Hanif Shaikh, Raaj Aashoo.

We see there are ample movies being made that based on the martyr and the warriors of our nation we have had since ages, in fact, we see them all since our independence and post that era as well. But, what Romeo Akbar Walter has done is immensely marvellous. This is my personal view on the movie – coming to the story, it has nailed like any other RAW and intelligence agencies movies in Bollywood, but what makes me intrigued is the ability to pull it off with the niche that it almost felt that it can be an anti-Indian movie. Nonetheless, it wasn’t!!

To start with RAW – Romeo Akbar Walter

can be a slow burner for many as the pace goes like a turtle but later it cleans up the mess from our nation during the times of 1971 war and post that when Walter Khan (John Abraham) soars into the patriotic Indian agent working on the lands of Pakistan.

RAW - Romeo Akbar Walter Movie Review – Spirited Blogger

The story

The first half, in specific, is quite deliberate and takes its own time for the setup and build up. You might feel that nothing’s really up-to-the-minute here in this movie and it is getting emotional on every front unnecessary, but nah, by the end of the film, it all makes sense. The writing is pretty good I must say and the screenplay is a bit precarious. I personally loved the twists in the movie but was hoping to have more; however, no offence but the script perhaps demanded the same.

Romeo (John Abraham) played a spy but was shown as a bank cashier who was then recruited by India’s foreign intelligence agency — the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). They believe he’s a master of disguise and can operate as Akbar, India’s undercover agent in Pok (Pakistan occupied Kashmir) – all these events are during the time around 1971 Indo-Pak war. He pulled it off strategically and for me, it is one of the most amazing works of John post-Madras Café.

I quite like the entry of Sikandar Kher – the moment he steps in the movie the twists and the drama enthralled the audience. I would like to see more of him in films and of Raghubir Yadav as well as they both are fabulous actors in their own genre and Kher has to be pulled off more. Mouni Roy needs to work on acting skills more, it’s nothing like she isn’t one but for movies and great cinema she had to choose what makes her comfortable. Needless to say about amazing work done by Jackie Shroff, it was a delight to see him on the screen in such a strong character.

RAW - Romeo Akbar Walter Movie Review – Spirited Blogger

My ratings: 3.5 out of 5 stars (only for John Abraham)

Critic Review: A bit slow movie at pace but in the end has triggered the audience with patriotism and real station between India and Pakistan.

PS: A definitely must watch a movie for John and his team, Robbie Grewal god job done. Go watch it guys.

The story is quirky and upbeat – Luka Chupi – Movie Review


Luka Chupi – Movie Review

The story starts with a sparky topic of live-in relationships which is still a taboo in our society. What happens is that a popular actor Nazim Khan reveals his live-in relationship on the news and that’s when the whole issue and propaganda of the live-in relationship started. It became a national issue in Mathura. Further, in the story, the reporter Guddu (Kartik Aaryan) and his associate Rashmi (Kriti Sanon) fall in love with each other. The first half is jam-packed with some sequences that are not quite appealing but yes the one-liners and the dialogue delivery of Kartik Aaryan is falling flat as a pancake. Kartik Aaryan is a huge misfit at places despite the fact his one-liners were fantastic. Also, I would like to mention that the ace actor Pankaj Tripathi was not used at his best in the movie. Kriti Sanon looks gorgeous but doesn’t get anything to recur the magic she displayed in Bareilly Ki Barfi. Pankaj’s presence makes some scenes manageable but an actor of stature, doing this – it’s just deplorable.

Luka Chupi – Movie Review

Directed by debutant Laxman Utekar and produced by Dinesh Vijan, the film will hit the screens on March 1, 2019. It also features actors Aparshakti Khurana, Pankaj Tripathi and Vinay Pathak in key roles. For me, Luka Chuppi’ is a situational comedy from the word go and it also has a strong point to put about live-in relationships. According to t me, the way it has been portrayed was good enough as this is a serious topic in Indian societies.  What starts as a news story for a local reporter Guddu, turns into his own love story with hilarious complications. But peddling along are a host of other societal issues like misogyny, gender inequality, caste bias and moral policing that are tackled in a funny and harmless way. Though, there is barely a dull moment in the film that never takes itself too extremely. As a debutante, director Laxman Utekar does a superb job of giving us a bunch of idiosyncratic letterings in rare situations. Starting with the film’s hero Kartik Aaryan, who looks way too refined for his small-town character, but along the way, you soon start rooting for him. Whether he is casing a story or running for cover himself – Kartik exudes an engaging charm that is relatable.

 

Luka Chupi – Movie Review

My ratings: 3.5/5

Overall, ‘Luka Chuppi’ is an amusing ride that never gets too preachy or scratchy for the family audience. It’s a spotless entertainer with a message that’s not too loud, but clear, for sure.

What a movie to write for – Stree Movie Review – here’s my take on it – Rajkummar Rao, Shraddha Kapoor starrer one of the finest and the most original films of 2018. Stree marries the notion of broad comedy with horror, dark humour, and the social attire attached to it – that brings life to the story.

 

Stree Movie Review Spirited Blogger
Stree Movie Review Spirited Blogger

A town which happens to be in the grip of terror and covered by the tales of mysterious woman, who is ghost and calls the men by their name and then pull them towards her, finally abducting them, the funny and the horrified part of the story is that the Stree leaves the clothes behind and take the men. In spite of all little loophole sand stuff in the movie and all that ambiguous ideas, Stree is definitely an entertaining film. This is an untried comedy, which creates an unnerving atmosphere and certainly manages to be witty, funny and surely scary at the same time. Chanderi’s wonder boy was finally tailored extraordinaire, where the  Vicky (Rajkummar Rao) falls in love with a mysterious girl (Shraddha Kapoor) who just comes once a year for the puja and at the puja time. But, her disappearing act involved her friends in suspicion and they start thinking that she could be the Stree haunting the city for long.

Stree Movie Review Spirited Blogger

The review: The ingrained prejudice against women and chauvinism are some of the social evils that exist in our society and eats the world out there. So, it doesn’t matter whether you’re educated or you are a civilized person, women have always had been on the vulnerable side and had to always play second fiddle in the male-dominant system – this is the irony of our Indian society. The world one day would positively, do well to give every woman far more respect they deserve. To see such an apposite conversation especially, unfold in a horror-comedy like Stree, was a refreshing and unique experience for me. But, it feels a bit juddering as well, it is also being compared with Bhool Bhulaiya starring Akshaya Kumar and Vidhya Balan – but when the film pokes fun at horror film ideas and finally entertains the audience with its jibes, unexpectedly bursts out into a comment on radicalism. In a bid to be socially germane, Stree ends up being a little too preachy but the comic timings of Raj Kumar Rao and the professor – Pankaj Tripathi was epic.

Sanju’ Movie Review – #throwback #review

 

Spirited Blogger - Sanju Movie Review

Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic on his close friend and recurrent collaborator Sanjay Dutt is released in theatres worldwide, it is more than a week to this movie, and later when I watched the movie thought to give a review on the incidences that I thought were impactful and few which were not depicted.

Sanju – a much-hyped Biopic of a Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, was successful to explore some of the most crucial chapters and phases of the actor’s life. It has the dramatic and controversial fell of his real and reel life. The movie actually gives you a breakdown on his rendezvous with drugs, his trials on TADA, and tribulations in the Arms Acts case and the 1993 Mumbai blasts.

Talking about the stars – Ranbir Kapoor is in the titular role, and the film features a collaborative effort which includes Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, and Vicky Kaushal – all of whom are playing various characters loosely-based on real-life people from Dutt’s controversial life.
For me, Sanju is detailed, well-written and has a sufficiently good number of memorable moments that entice the viewers. The father-son saga was highlighted the most and there were the many references to old Hindi film music which gave the feel of that era.

The story starts with a shot where a writer fails to write about Sanjay Dutt’s biopic and fails him miserably, so he turns to an established writer Winnie (Anushka Sharma) to pen his biography. From there the story gets deep and intense. The confessions and recollections of Sanju were in front of Winnie and give us deep insights into the highs and lows of his life, which is nothing short of a roller-coaster ride.

A bit of critical review, however, troubles which are the excuses made for Dutt’s failures and his misdeeds as a politician. Hirani regularly concentrated on the events of Dutt’s life, beginning with his well-chronicled struggle of Sanjay Dutt with drugs, which is just one part of his life. At some points, Paresh Rawal’s character of Sunil Dutt is depicted as selfish, unresponsive, self-destructive, and allowed at various points in the film, but in the end, it is the Dutt who suffered. Moreover, the director’s humorous style is pretty evident from the first scene, which took audiences to a ride of Sanju’s life.

 

I give it a 3.5 star – Watch it at least once for the exacting acting skills of Ranbir Kapoor as – Sanjay Dutt.
