My Ratings: 3.5 on 5 stars

 

The use of the word “sperm” is considered to be a big taboo in our society. But in this film, the use of sperm is all over the places. If we go by the master himself – Taran Adarsh, he has rated the movie a blockbuster by 4 out of 5 stars. Whereas a few media channels are claiming it as a boring and lethargic topic by giving it a 2 out of 5 stars. Well, I have watched the movie and read what I have to say about Good Newwz Movie Review.

 

good newwz batra vs batra

 

The word sperm was last use thoroughly in the Hindi movie Vicky Donor, since then this kind of Hakte use of this term is not seen in Bollywood cinema. Good Newwz comes with a genuinely striking story which is realistic as well in our surroundings. It is a pasteurised, still-born comedy that connects on a pregnancy clinic mix-up that sends two culturally dissimilar couples into a spiral of desperation and confusion. Both states of mind are likely to spill out of the film’s smooth universe and rub off on all but the most liberal of Mumbai movie fans who may be twisted to fall for its gossamer veneer and full-of-beans star cast. But that is, of course, the most invisible one anticipates from a movie that has Karan Johar on board as a co-producer.

 

The Movie Review

 

Deepti (Kareena Kapoor Khan) and Varun Batra (Akshay Kumar) are a rich, high-flying wedded couple. They live in Mumbai and are very much gripped in their respective careers. Deepti wishes to have a baby and they both have been trying for years. Here the comedy and the urge between both of them seemed to be complimenting. Later when they could not due to family pressure they consulted one of the best fertility specialists in the city. The doctor advises IVF and they were ready for it. 

 

good newwz review

 

The only hitch is when after a few days the procedure is through, Deepti and Varun are told there has been a sperm mix-up with another couple with the same last name. Enter ‘the Batras from Chandigarh’ into their lives. Honey (Diljit Dosanjh) and Monika (Kiara Advani) are a raucous Punjabi couple and now it’s an impeccable clash of judgments between the two sets of Batras. As both Deepti and Monika shortly find out they are pregnant, the rest of the film traces how the couples come to terms and deal with this strange situation.

 

Stroy Line Review

 

Through much of its runtime, director Raj Mehta guarantees that ‘Good Newwz’ stays true to its genre with several light-hearted and humorous moments. Add to that, the speed of the film stays mostly tight. Although given the subject and basis the anecdote, at times, tramps into a problematic zone and position. And some of the jokes seem off-colour. There’s also an inclination to over-explain and analyse in some portions which stick out. Also, the screenplay barely pricks the surface when it comes to getting into the depth and complexity of the situation.

 

Nevertheless, the performances are top-notch. Kareena Kapoor Khan lifts the show and delivers a knockout performance as the refined Deepti, and her character’s passionate arc is developed well. Akshay Kumar hits the right spot with his comic timing. As does Diljit Dosanjh, who settles his teeth into his character and plays it with full enthusiasm. Kiara Advani is a very serious actor and has made a strong impression. Adil Hussain as the straight-faced doctor, at the core of all the confusion, is a howl. And as a couple, both Kareena and Akshay play off each other well and many of their interplays come off as very relatable.

 

At the heart of it, ‘Good Newwz’ is a light and sprightly comedy and assuredly makes for an exciting watch. Read more movie reviews of your favourite movies from Hollywood and Bollywood.

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. 

 

 frozen ii movie review

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.

The film is about three women spies, they call them Angels who are appointed by private security and investigative agency, named as Townsend Agency. This Agency is owned by an unidentified millionaire called Charlie who runs his missions through Bosley, his agent or proxy in command. This movie review of Charlie’s Angels will give take you through the Charlie’s Angels of ’70s TV Series. The other two movies that clashed same week did well too. We see Ford V Ferrari ruled the charts with outstanding numbers, read the review here. Audiences have a lot of fun elements and action in the theaters for the Thanksgiving week around the corner.

Director’s Cut

Director Elizabeth Banks takes the rudder as the next generation of daring Charlie’s Angels take their flight in the theatre near you. In Banks’ strong vision, Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska are serving for the mysterious Charles Townsend, whose security and the investigative agency has extended internationally. With the world’s briskest, most splendid, and most highly trained women all over the world, there are now the teams of Angels, who are further trained and guided by multiple Bosleys taking on the tedious jobs everywhere. The screenplay is by Elizabeth Banks from a story by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn.

 

Movie Review Charlie’s Angels – The story

The film kicks off in Rio de Janeiro, with Sabina Wilson (Kristen Stewart) in a blonde wig teasingly seducing Jonny Smith (Chris Pang), a wrongful figure, and all that is a part of sting operation held by their agency. Later when she was cornered, former MI-6 agent Jane Kano (Ella Balinska) came to rescue. Together, they put their lives on the line to win.

A year later we see these two are united again in Paris, to rescue Elena Houghlin (Naomi Scott). She is a young systems engineer who is a key rack in a company that created Calisto. This is a new device of a sustainable alternative energy source that has an unfavourable side effect: It could kill people, which Elena knew. So doesn’t want it to go in the wrong hands. She assumed that Calisto could be weaponised as an instrument of mass killings, hence the production shall be stopped. With the Angels, Sabina and Jane together with Rebecca (Elizabeth Banks) as their Bosley on the case, uncover the said clandestine plot.

What we shall know about Charlie’s Angels

It is a reboot of Charlie’s Angels of the ’70s TV series which was about a trio of female secret agents (Kristen StewartElla Balinska, and Naomi Scott). Elizabeth Banks directs the movie and is acting as well. The movie switches the franchise’s focus to female empowerment, with themes of marvel, strength, and partnership. There’s also more violence as many could expect, whilst some are pretty intense: The Angels fight the battle with villains in scenes that are full of hard-hitting fights and assault weapons. They take some knocks in the process, and they also kill some of the villains (impalement is especially gnarly). As in the original show, the Angels are robust, tough, intelligent, and savvy; they also swing a killer wardrobe.

In other words, they’re aspirational, not the sex objects. And these Angels are purely refreshingly distinct. The opening scene creates to pay reverence to the original’s playbook, with Stewart’s character using her sex charm to trap a villain – but it’s revealed that the Angels win because society doesn’t require attractive women to be ingenious or competent. Cursing is rare but present (“d–k,” “s–t,” etc.).

Movie Review Saand Ki Aankh – Director Tushar Hiranandani directs the scene of the colour coding with a very mild hand. This scene depicts the subtext – that this is life, where the incidences show what all is happening to women who do not have the right to question the status quo. Patriarchy, chauvinism and discrimination are lethal in this feudal system. The men sit around smoking hookah and treat the women as labour by day and a baby-making factory by night. I always try to bring honest and clear reviews of your much-loved movies, read more…

The plot and the story

It is set in Johri village, Uttar Pradesh in 1999, where the three wives of the Tomar men are unceasingly veiled. They are identifiable to the male citadel principally by the colour of their veils. Bimla, the eldest is red and Chandro (Bhumi Pednekar), the middle one, is blue. So when the youngest wife Prakashi (Taapsee Pannu), comes to her new home, she must choose her own colour.

When a shooting area is set up in the village, Chandro envisions a ticket for her granddaughter Shefali (Sara Arjun) and Prakashi marks a way for her daughter Seema (Pritha Bakshi) to snap out of the cycle of inequity. In doing so, older women realise their latent abilities as challenging sharpshooters. But they can do so covertly. Family patriarch Rattan Singh Tomar (Prakash Jha) rules with a cruel fist so it takes all their imagination for the 60-year-old versions to find reasons to move out of their village area to fight across India.

Movie Review Saand Ki Aankh

Prakash Jha as the idiosyncratic headman of the family is reasonable. With his mellowed and balanced acting, he makes you hate men who repress women in the name of family values and religion. Vineet Kumar Singh, like always, lives up to the expectations. He is neither too much nor too less but draws just the right expense of innocence to his role of the Shooter Dadis’ coach required. Read more, Movie Review Saand Ki Aankh.

Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar in Saand Ki Aankh are great in Tushar Hiranandani’s Saand Ki Aankh, which discusses women empowerment in real sense. Only the tingling factor is the actresses’ prosthetics, which come across as make-up.

Cinematographer Sudhakar Reddy Yakkanti does an excellent job of apprehending the true nature of the story is set in. One special scene in which Chandro Tomar brings her granddaughter to learn shooting is brilliantly shot. The camera captures the two ladies entering the gates in the light on a motorcycle side-mirror, and then pans to show the coach in the same mirror. Director Tushar Hiranandani manages to compress out satisfactory work from his actors, in Movie Review Saand Ki Aankh.

War Movie Review – Tale Of Two Greek Gods

Cast:  Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff

Vaani Kapoor, Soni Razdan and Anupriya Goenka

Director: Siddharth Anand

Critic Review

War has features and traits of a few resembling music numbers and movies, which Bollywood has been doing it for years. Where we could see “Top Gun”-levels of homoeroticism, designed or otherwise; way too much who-is-the-mole scheme; a needless romantic sub-plot that drove tales around glittery and random Christmas scenes. This involves heroine, a cute widdle kid and glamour round the corner. What all we see in this war movie review, that, it the entertainment of the two Greek gods of Bollywood industry. You can be happy witnessing a long and rushing bike rides between the two. The computer graphics, body double and the chase of these two duelling stars are like a spin around the plot. Of course, it is Aditya Chopra, (Adi I’m not criticising you, but it is truly like Dhoom 4 or an Abbas Mustan film). To the plot, you will see a thundering show of one of the world’s best sports cars racing and twirling all over the snow of Artic.

To your surprise, it is a frozen river by the way. The twists and turns test your patience but lack in the storyline. Overall, just a stardom movie to watch, for the love Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan. Certainly not a 3 star for me – the war movie review rating will be 2.5. 

 

war movie review

Music

On the contrary, the music of Vishal Dadlani is killing in the two musical numbers, which are also dancing numbers. The songs will be ruling the charts in the coming months as well. Ghungroo stands out in contrast to Jai Jai Shiv Shankar. That’s just about 50 per cent for Vishal Dadlani. Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan make the excellent pair and audience are liking their chemistry. To my knowledge audience were wishing to see both of them paired since long. Their paring is almost like Batman and Robin, like, where Shroff’s diligence and respect is a good foil to Roshan’s more perceptive ways.

Certainly a crowd puller, but not a box office hit for Aditya Chopra. War, got released on October 2nd, with all the reviews and critics it started-off fantastic on the box office and has gathered massive collection on Day 1.

Like its non-aerodynamic title characters, The Angry Birds 2 Movie is a hilarious ride and takes you to a delightfully entertaining flight. All the way it lands on a great hit of this year.

 

The Angry Birds 2 Movie review

Synopsis

Oh – did I mention that it is based on a mobile-based gaming app. Thrilling and exciting where one bird is hit by another. the movie focus on real values and teaches forgiveness, teamwork, modesty, friendship etc. It flaunts a plot and action prefaced on the foundational principles of mathematics and it also promotes girls to study science and be a techie. Read, Angry Birds 2 Review.

Storyline – Angry Birds 2 Review

Right from the first scene, it’s verified that this series of ‘The Angry Birds’ is rigidly a kiddie flick and thankfully, it did not even try to something else. In this sequel, the flightless angry birds and the green piggies are back on the island. Both the islands are this being threatened by Zeta – the eagle lady from an alien island. Then they both realised that they shall put their battle on hold and come together to save their islands from a rogue eagle named Zeta (Leslie Jones). Will their magical and weird alliance save the day for the frenemies? This has to be watched for.

 

angry bird 2 movie review

 

Apart from kids, even the adults will be amused to a certain point. This is to thank vigorous voice work executed in the movie. If the sarcastic tone of Sudeikis’s Red is slightly generic, Jones’s larger-than-life vocal appearance makes Zeta outrageous beyond her flamboyant feathers.

Angry Birds 2 Review

The first “Angry Birds” movie was, convincingly a story of scepticism. In this new and refined sequel, the message is more promising: If we could only put down our disagreements, we sway to save the world. That’s not a bad virtuous after all, which is achieved not by slingshot, but centres that are just adroit enough to keep you flickering along.

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.

A promising addition to ZEE5’s collection of original web content, Ishq Aaj Kal seems to be tailor-made for fans of romantic thrillers. So, catch the thrilling show from 4th July 2019.  Stay tuned and keep watching ZEE5.

Bharat box office collection Day 3: This Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer has earned Rs 95.50 crore in three days. The Ali Abbas Zafar directorial earned Rs 22.20 crore on Friday.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh posted the film’s figures on his Twitter handle. He tweeted, “#Bharat maintains a grip on Day 3 [Fri]… Mass circuits remain strong, while some circuits faced normal decline after #Eid festivities… Should witness an upturn on Day 4 [Sat] and 5 [Sun]… Wed 42.30 cr, Thu 31 cr, Fri 22.20 cr. Total: ₹ 95.50 cr. India biz.”

Now all these are just figures and these figures say it all. It is a family entertainer, yet another Salman Khan movie which has grabbed all the attention for all the reasons. This Ali Abbas Zafar directorial is well written and has a stronghold on the story. Well initiated story but missed on many sections to hold attention but doesn’t capitulate to the trappings of commercial potboilers. Basically, the issue with the screenplay and direction was the story’s strong connection with Bharat’s dream and his India’s affection.

Story: Now when you have too many aspects to show there is always a miss. The fact is that it reis too hard to grab the audience’s attention but didn’t proved to be a massive hit. It was overall an entertaining movie for the family to watch – a typical Salman Khan movie but has a draining odyssey. The movie was though being an adaptation of South Korean drama Ode to my Father (2014). It emphases on the personal and professional choices of its virtuous hero, and in Bollywood, it was set against the social backdrop of its time and the times which India as a country has seen since independence.

Image result for bharat review

 

There were too many things happening at one time which made it across a loop of characters and scenes. While he accomplishes to keep you hooked notwithstanding his complex source material and misplaced songs makes it a complex movie. Eventually, this makes the movie an arduous, dispersed watch it despite the entertainment, humour and nobility it proliferates.

The cast: Salman Khan the hero itself has a mark for his audience as always. We all know that even if the movie does did not have much of the smash hit content – it gives a box office hit because of the stardom and love Salman Khan gets. And there is nothing wrong in it as he is fantabulous. Interestingly Salman’s love for his family and the sober family person in real life is somehow being always showcased at the epitome in his lives. Which in this movie too has come out interestingly well?

Katrina Kaif: she is stunning and gorgeous. And the character of feisty kumud who is valiant and authentic enough to make the first move on him. “I love you. Shaadi ki umra ho gayi hai meri. Tumse shaadi karna chahti hoon,” she says without winking an eye. She proposes marriage without fearing rejection. “I do and say what I think is right,” she adds and doesn’t mind teasing Salman, “Tum thodey self-obsessed Nahi ho?” Bharat is Katrina’s best-acting part to date. Her harmony with Salman feels accepted and she does a good job at depicting a woman who is self-assured without being swaggering. Her hair is a different story though with the grey streaks are erratic as her character ages and the boisterous curls feel pointless.

Sunil Grover: He actually is the best fit in Ali’s writing is how he places Sunil Grover’s character as Vilayati is commendable and a sigh to see him performing as Bharat’s best friend and amigo. The best friends are the soulmates connections is quite evident in the movie and reflects beautifully. Grover does contend justice to his well-written role and justifies more such noteworthy parts. Sonali Kulkarni and Jackie Shroff are terrific as always, including the other cast – Tabu and the kids of course.

 

Bharat movie cast: Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff, Sonali Kulkarni, Disha Patani, Satish Kaushik

Bharat movie director: Ali Abbas Zafar

Bharat movie rating: 3 stars out of 5 (majorly for the story)

Captain Marvel has jumped the ladder in the Marvel-DC series – Movie Review

This movie has climbed higher and has raced faster in the captain marvel series. It is topping the charts the second week too on the box office. The global box office collection is yet another milestone in the process. The MCU flick has already earned another $69.3 million in North America, a drop of 55% from its $153.4m debut frame. This is, quite outspokenly, a deeply dreary result, as it’s neither a super-duper hold nor a super-super drop. It is more-or-less on par with the various Hunger Games movies and most MCU flicks (Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Ant-Man and Thor: The Dark World among others). 

 

 

Movie Review - Captain Marvel

The story has Brie Larson as Carol Danvers and she became the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war. This war is between two alien races. The story is set in the 1990s and is a whole new adventure from previously unseen period movies in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. During the scenes, you would also feel that it is powerful than the Thanos as well. Captain Marvel is an extraterrestrial Kree warrior who has a connection to Erth and sees the glimpses of her life on a planet where there is life. It all started when Captain Marvel finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. She saw herself living on earth 1995, and those memories keep on recurring her mind as U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers. With the help from Nick Fury, Captain Marvel she tries to reveal the secrets of her past while hitching her special superpowers as the Marvel Captian to end the war with the evil Skrulls.

Movie Review - Captain Marvel

The film offers several positive messages related to perseverance, integrity, and more, but the greatest takeaway is watching a fearless, confident, mighty woman become a superhero. Carol Danvers is a fantastic role model: She always sees herself as capable, she’s not objectified, male counterparts recognize her intelligence and strength, and she has a strong sense of integrity. Women support women, the characters are diverse, ageism is nonexistent, and romance doesn’t figure into things at all.

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

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.

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.

Sonakshi Sinha and Diana Penty starrer ‘Happy Phirr Bhaag Jayegi‘ released at the theatres this week. The film has been enjoyed by the audience who eagerly purchased their first-day first show tickets for the movie. In the public review, few said Sonakshi Sinha has shown a huge improvement in her craft. However, there was a comparison between the two actresses as well, Diana and Sonakshi, as their roles had different demands and responsibilities.

Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi had a slow start at the box office. The Sonakshi Sinha starrer earned only Rs 2.70 crore. Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is the sequel to 2016 film Happy Bhag Jayegi, and stars Sonakshi Sinha, Jimmy Sheirgill, Ali Fazal and Jassi Gill. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted out the figures, saying, “#HappyPhirrBhagJayegi has a slow start on Day 1… Fared better in North… Needs to witness substantial growth over the weekend + maintain a strong trend on weekdays to leave a mark… Fri ₹ 2.70 cr. India biz… The first part had collected ₹ 2.32 cr on Day 1.”

My review: The 2016 film Happy Bhag Jayegi was a surprisingly bubbly brew, an undistinguished yet boisterous comedy about a runaway bride. The sequel is set in Shanghai and tries too hard to set the base as it was a new land. Nonetheless, Jimmy Shergill steals the show more than Sonakshi Sinha as he is the man who is doomed to falling for girls – named Happy. The gags and the laugh quotient failed at places as the audience is comparing from the previous one. In between due to this the film seemed over longing and exhausting. How I wish these movies were about Bagga.

Also, for me it is absolutely a must watch the show – for a lot of reasons but yes the lack of consistency and the sharp lines with a quick wit often seemed lapsing into the puerile. Also, if someone were to get down to “reading” things seriously and watch the dialogues trying to analyse then all that actually transpires in to the on-screen Shanghai – having said this Aziz’s attempt to highlight the China’s political and economic domination of the region was great but guess audience would have loved to have a more humorous way on it.

That is, using a Bollywood film as a tool, at a time when the likes of Dangal have been reigning at the Chinese box office. From noodles to fake goods to “shey shey” (with ‘Mera naam chin chin choon’ in the background) everything Chinese is game. In fact, India, with a little help from Pakistan, is made to come out much smarter than the Chinese themselves on their home turf at that. Above all the Pakistani Policeman – the character played by Piyush Mishra is a secret laugh gig in the film, in fact, Bagga and Afridi’s timing on comedy and the best-plotted dialogues is the source of success for the film.

Overall the first one was an epic but the second one misses out of a lot of things on the charts but yes, the Jimmy Shergill steals the show with no girl in the hand.

Dhadak Movie Review Spirited Blogger

 

The original #Sairat as #Dhadak – the comeback review

The heart of the movie remains intact as the original with a focus on making the story a bit more cinematic the way #Dharmaproduction is known for. But in point of view, the essence of the original seems to be lost in the remake. The Twitterati’s too seem to be dissatisfactory with the whole charm and the newbies in #Bollywood.

The take on the story

The societal stigma on High caste and low caste has been prevailing in our country since decades and we have numerous love stories failing in this wrath of demons. From this classic backbone of beautiful yet painful love stories comes Sairat – the #Marathiblockbuster (2016) by the filmmaker Nagraj Manjule who took the tried-and-tested Romeo and Juliet love story which was placed in a setting where the conflict rose from caste and socio-economic and divide the deep-rooted cultures and regions.
The Marathi film’s Hindi adaptation – Dhadak too finds a rebellious zone of class division in our cultures. The story revolves between a heritage-haveli-residing girl and a boutique-cafe-running boy. You will find the mentions of ‘oonchi jaati’ (high caste) by the boy’s father and on the other hand the political campaigns and gamut of the girl’s father – Ashutosh Rana.

The story is mugged of surface and shade from Bittergaon village in central Maharashtra to a tourism-brochure version of Udaipur, where it is centred on the romance between Madhukar aka Madhu (Ishaan Khatter) and Parthavi (Janhvi Kapoor). The audience would relate to the dialogue – where the girl’s neta father declares, “Udaipur ki izzat uske sanskaaron mein hai (the honour of Udaipur lies in its values)”. – which directly gives a stink of caste division and societal taboos. Filmmaker Shashank Khaitan displays a full commitment to societal resistance but you will not find an interest in the social injustice on whose back this nonessential setup is built.

In the original film – Sairat the couple shifts to Hyderabad and (Parshya and Archie) were put through the wringer and hard times as they find a new life. In Dhadak, Madhu and Parthavi inland up in Kolkata, but we would see that their struggle is relatively sterile, or we can say not that raw as it can best be described as the Dharma Productions version of a hard life.

The cast and the music though bring out the justice and of course when it is Karan Johar’s version of films – the location, sets, colours are always vibrant. Nonetheless, overall a onetime watch that is will be lured to the youth and the teenage lovers.

Critical review

For me, it is well crafted and reaches out to the audience by touching the hearts in a soft manner. With all the strengths and weaknesses, Dhadak tries to highlight some of the shocking truths about our society and caste system and for which it is a worthy watch. Where the story nicely depicted the innocence and charm of the lovers – the first half seemed to be challenging in terms of pace, and the essence of the societal norms and battle against all odds for the sake of love. On the other hand, the second half failed to put it through the notion of going. Even the final jolt couldn’t shake the audience as compared with the masterpiece – Sairat सैराट.

I would rate it a 3.5 star and a one-time watch

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.
