For all those who have loved and admired Ishq Subhan Allah earlier will be certainly considering Ishq Aaj Kal in their watchlist. The web series is a ZEE5 original which is a reboot of romantic thriller TV show Ishq Subhan Allah. This show was a wonderful romantic thriller revolving around two lovely people Kabeer (Adnan Khan) and Zara (Eisha Singh) who were ardent believers of Islam but have the opposite understanding and perspective about it. How they cross paths with each other formed the crux of the TV show. Hence, it will be interesting to see what Ishq Aaj Kal has in store for us.

Going by the teaser, Ishq Aaj Kal seems like a fantastic spin-off of Ishq Subhan Allah, with another mystery to unveil. Like the way Kabeer and Zara did full justice to the characters in Ishq Subhan Allah, Ishq Aaj Kal also has a strong cast featuring Ankitta Sharma and Angad Hasija in the lead roles. The thrilling plot is expected to be as powerful as Ishq Subhan Allah – according to producer Dheeraj Kumar (a veteran in the film industry).

The plot and story

In the teaser, you will see the tinge of mystery where young Alia is with her father – shown in flashback, which is followed by his arrest in the charge of murdering her mother. In the series, Alia (Ankitta) is seen working as a waitress in a hotel where she got introduced to Paras’s character. What follows is a lot of suspense and intrigue.

The entire story revolves around Alia Jaffri, who is on the journey of finding the truth and solve the mystery of her past- about why her beloved father killed her mother. The dark past is something that appears to rear its head up and ruin her present, affecting all her relations- both personal and professional.

The cast

Apart from Ankitta Sharma and Angad Hasija,  Bigg Boss 12 fame Roshmi Banik will also be a part of the series and has a strong parallel lead role as Ankita’s best friend. The show also stars Kavita Ghai, Shagun Jaswal and Kunal Nirola in important roles. It is also exciting to Kabeer (Adnan Khan) and Zara (Eisha Singh) present in the teaser. This makes one think, will they be a major part of the series or not? The answer to the question will only be known once the series comes online.

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.

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.

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.
