Bhoomi Movie Review

612811-bhoomi-poster

CAST: Sanjay Dutt, Aditi Rao Hydari, Shekhar Suman, Sharad Kelkar
DIRECTION: Omung Kumar
GENRE: Drama
DURATION: 2 hours 15 minutes

SANJAY DUTT IS BACK

BHOOMI STORY: A shoe-smith Arun Sachdeva(Sanjay) is shattered when he discovers that his daughter, Bhoomi (Aditi) has been raped by Dhauli (Sharad) and his gang of three. The father and daughter grieve for a bit and then plan revenge.

BHOOMI REVIEW: Distasteful as it may sound, rape and retribution seem to dominating Bollywood. After Maatr and Mom, Omung Kumar, who showed a spark with Mary Kom, seems to have fallen into the trap of making formula. And while every filmmaker argues that movies on rapes are ‘socially-relevant'; you keep asking yourself—is all the gore on screen justified.

Here, our very own Arun and Bhoomi are a doting father-daughter team living in Agra. They tug at your heartstrings with their chirpybaap-beti routine of cooking meals, colouring beards and combing hair. However, after a point the bittu-beti endearments rankle. But that’s not the only thing that rankles here.

When Bhoomi gets raped just a day before her wedding, you know which way the film will go. The insensitive cops, the lame public prosecutor, the even lamer defence and the whole court-room drama where it has become fashionable to discuss the heroine’s virginity makes you want to scream. Statistics of rapes are rattled off by all and sundry and the word `rape’ is used so frequently that it almost knocks you dead.

But like it’s said, every cloud has a silver living; Bhoomi has Sanjay Dutt. Returning to the marquee after his incarceration, the actor wears the lines of his face with confidence. You can tell right away that the lion has aged but he’s got terrific screen presence.

Aditi is also remarkable, first as the stuttering, sweet girl and later as the woman seeking revenge. Sharad is too much the caricatured villain from the 80s, mouthing stupid lines. The overall writing is clunky. Artur Zurawski’s camera work is efficient. Sachin-Jigar have composed a couple of foot-tapping numbers that don’t necessarily have recall but when they are playing, you find yourself grooving.

Watch Bhoomi for Dutt. He’s from that era of larger-than-life heroes who get you to whistle even when he is killing people. You may not approve of his thirst for blood but you can’t fault his swagger.

Haseena Parkar Movie Review

Haseena-Shraddha

CAST: Shraddha Kapoor, Ankur Bhatia, Siddhant Kapoor
DIRECTION: Apoorva Lakhia
GENRE: Biography
DURATION: 2 hours 4 minutes

HASEENA PARKAR STORY: This courtroom drama tries to decode the life and criminal activities of India’s most wanted fugitive – Dawood Ibrahim’s late sister Haseena Parkar, who allegedly headed her brother’s crime syndicate in Mumbai and ran proxy business for him.

HASEENA PARKAR REVIEW: As the film shuttles between past and present, it passionately lists down the gang wars and events that led to Dawood’s rise as a crime lord-terrorist and its repercussions on his family, including his sister Haseena, who was summoned to the Court only once (2007), despite the many offences registered against her.

Incidentally, the recent arrest of Dawood’s brother Iqbal Kaskar (‘while he was having biryani’), from his Mumbai residence on charges of extortion, made one wonder why the bigger fish continues to roam scot free. While the siblings are obviously no saints, do they somewhere bear the brunt of belonging to the D family? This disappointingly shallow biopic tries to decipher this debatable thought.

However, given Apoorva Lakhia’s poor direction and penchant for making films on Mumbai’s underworld dons that ride on sensation over substance, all you get is a tanned Shraddha Kapoor who looks like she’s holding two kachoris in her mouth. The actress is ‘lucky’ to be getting biopics (she will essay the role of badminton ace Saina Nehwal next), given her limited acting skills. But let us clarify, Shraddha is not the weakest link here.

The treatment, jarring background score and setting, is equally sloppy as Dongri, Nagpada, Dubai, Mulund, Bhandup…all look the same. Also, the stereotypes are laughable. Siddhant Kapoor (badly dubbed) as Dawood, roams around aimlessly in Dubai, goes on candlelight dinners with random girls and chills in his bathtub as Mumbai burns (1993). The judge examining Haseena Parkar’s case, comes across as a nincompoop.

You walk into the film, hoping to understand the controversial journey of a woman, who became the aapa (elder sister) or the Godmother of Nagpada. But all you get is a silly costume drama that inadvertently victimises and thus justifies Haseena’s unlawful actions and warped sense of power under the pretext of ‘protecting her family’. While the intention is still subjective as it’s a filmmaker’s interpretation of a character, the film’s biggest drawback is its lack of depth.

The crime drama fails to offer an insight into Haseena’s life whatsoever as an individual, beyond her infamous identity as Dawood’s sister, who dropped her bhai’s name to settle property disputes, extort money from builders etc.

Newton Movie Review

Rajkumar-Rao-Starrer-Newton-First-Look

CAST: Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, Raghubir Yadav
DIRECTION: Amit Masurkar
GENRE: Comedy
DURATION: 1 hour 46 minutes

NEWTON SOARS!

NEWTON STORY: Newton Kumar, a rookie government clerk, is sent on election duty in the conflict-ridden jungles of Chhattisgarh, which is under the control of the naxals. Despite the odds stacked against him, Newton Kumar tries his best to conduct a fair voting process in the region.

NEWTON REVIEW: In terms of entertainment value, ‘Newton’ takes on a completely unremarkable subject. After all, why would anyone want to watch a film on election woes in a remote jungle surrounded by Naxalites? Surely not your average moviegoer who is primarily accustomed to the glitz and glamour of escapist Bollywood. But in the recent past, some films have tried to blur the line between sheer ‘paisa vasool’ quotient and essential social commentary. ‘Newton’ jumps over that divide and runs off with a brilliantly acted, impeccably written, lovingly shot, humorous, yet poignant film that Indian audiences didn’t ask for, but need.

As a character Newton Kumar is so idealistic, he’s ready to literally have his face rubbed in the dirt as long as he can fulfil his duty. His rigid demeanour is not tainted by the corruption and cynicism that we, as Indians, have come to embrace. Rajkummar Rao embodies this role with a blinking innocence in his eyes, hiding the intelligence of an actor who has a deep understanding of the persona he’s playing. In fact, Newton’s personality traits are so well defined by Rajkummar, that it would be really interesting to see this character react to a variety of other complex and uncomfortable situations. Along with him, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil and Raghubir Yadav put on a masterclass in acting – each one of them shines when they occupy the screen. Tripathi as Aatma Singh, in particular, is the perfect opposite of Newton’s naivete, in his weary scepticism. Together, they make an odd couple of sorts, but also perfectly showcase the two ends of the spectrum in our thought process, when we contemplate the state of our ‘democratic’ country.

But their performances would ring hollow with the lack of a meaningful screenplay. Writer-director Amit Masurkar and Mayank Tewari have painfully captured the bittersweet essence of the people of an obscure jungle that’s far-flung from civilization. This is also evident in the cinematography; each shot is thoughtfully structured and lovingly composed. Combined with a subtle sound design that’s hard to miss – this film has everything going for it. ‘Newton’ has dared to take on an issue that our vast majority turns a blind eye to, and slaps us out of our blissful ignorance. Amidst laughing, it’ll leave you thinking, which – and we need to be reminded of this – is what good cinema should do. Both your funny bone and your grey cells will thank you for watching it.

Lucknow Central Movie Review

Lucknow-central

CAST: Farhan Akhtar, Diana Penty, Ronit Roy, Gippy Grewal, Deepak Dobriyal, Rajesh Sharma, Inaamulhaq, Ravi Kishan
DIRECTION: Ranjit Tiwari
GENRE: Drama
DURATION: 2 hours 13 minutes

PRISONERS OF FATE BREAK FREE…

LUCKNOW CENTRAL STORY: Kishan Girhotra’s (Farhan) dreams of becoming a singer are shattered when he is falsely accused of murdering an IAS officer in Muradabad. Pronounced guilty, he is jailed for the crime he never committed. Deprived of the freedom he rightfully deserves, the sun shines on him once again even in captivity, as a bunch of prisoners and an NGO worker (Diana Penty) become his voice and the wind beneath his wings. Can he accomplish his dream of forming a band in the prison or does he manage to escape the dungeon?

LUCKNOW CENTRAL REVIEW: Based on true life events, Lucknow Central is a feel-good, human, prison-break drama that succeeds in manipulating you emotionally, despite being predictable and filmy in portions. While the peg is somewhat similar (barring the under trial element) to the recent Qaidi Band, Lucknow Central has a distinct execution and is way more evolved.

What essentially works for LC is its classic ‘winning against all odds’ theme. The inmates finding a reason to live and a sense of belonging within the four walls of the Lucknow Central jail instead of their homes is what tugs at your heartstrings. Shunned as misfits and outcasts by the society including their families, the prisoners find solace in each other’s company. Ranjit Tiwari handles this aspect of human alienation and friendship, beautifully. His understated sensibility resonates with his talented star cast, starting with the very impressive Ronit Roy. The actor stands out as the curt, conniving and clever jailer. Sadly, his character is reduced to being a toothless tiger eventually.

Farhan ably carries the film on his shoulders but his efforts to nail his desi character are partially visible. For instance, his flawed English pronunciation seems a tad artificial and inconsistent. (Read Corut for court, rohk for Rock and naan existent for non-existent). Nevertheless, he gets the mannerisms and innate innocence of a small town guy right and makes you weep for his misfortune. Deepak Dobriyal is excellent as always and so are Rajesh Sharma, Inaamulhaq and Ravi Kishan. Diana Penty and Gippy Grewal play their parts well.

Considering the film revolves around music, Rangdaari is a beautiful composition that sums up this fascinating tale of dreamers and fighters, who refuse to give up on life or faith.

Simran Movie Review

first-look-and-teaser-of-kangana-ranaut-starrer-simran

CAST: Kangana Ranaut, Sohum Shah
DIRECTION: Hansal Mehta
GENRE: Comedy
DURATION: 2 hours 4 minutes

KANGANA SHINES BUT SIMRAN FALTERS

SIMRAN STORY: Praful Patel (Kangana) is a 30-year-old divorcee living in Georgia with her middle-class parents. A housekeeper by profession, she gets drawn to a life of crime after her tryst with gambling at a Las Vegas casino. One bad turn leads to several more and before you know it, Praful is in a sordid mess.

SIMRAN REVIEW: The nice thing about Simran is that it ventures into an area where the Bollywood heroine offers no defence for being a badass. The protagonist, a woman with an undaunted spirit, lives and loves by her own set of rules. She refuses to have ‘sex without protection’ and is constantly up for adventure. She doesn’t think twice about slipping into a life of crime just to support her `character flaws’. So far so good.

Besides the premise, everything else about the film is improbable. The writing falters in parts and naturally the execution follows. The way Praful goes about robbing banks and gets away scot-free, even after leaving her finger prints all over and notes scribbled with lipstick seems unbelievable. The media brands her the ‘lipstick bandit’, and the Atlanta cops and the victimised bank employees seem like a bunch of jokers, who keep harping on the fearless bandit’s modus operandi, and yet, they fail to foil the half-a-dozen heists! It is almost like Hansal Mehta is attempting a comic story. Nothing wrong there, but if is a tale that is being recounted in lighter vein, then it should have at least made the audience laugh some more.

The only one who is having a good time here is Kangana. Whether she’s docile or daring, the actress goes about her screen business with a flourish; getting her mannerisms pat. However, there are occasions when even she gets carried away with the constant focus. But then again, is she really to be blamed? The filmmaker doesn’t even have another noteworthy star on celluloid to share the limelight. Simran’s parents and her fiancee, Sameer (Sohum) and other actors–foreign and desi–don’t quite add up.

Frankly, you can’t emotionally invest in Simran or root for her as much as you might want to. But when you watch the film, you will find yourself warming up to her occasionally, because she’s all you’ve got. Let’s give Kangana her due.

Poster Boys movie review: Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade starrer packs a solid comical punch

check-first-poster-bobby-deols-comeback-movie-poster-boys-0001

Shreyas Talpade makes his directorial debut with the Hindi version of Marathi hit Poshter Boyz, titled as Poster Boys. The film marks the return of Bobby Deol on the big screen and also the reunion of sorts for the Deol brothers. Apart from Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade, the film also stars Sonali Kulkarni, Samiksha Bhatnagar, Murli Sharma, Ashwini Kalsekar etc.

What’s It About

The film starts with the three protagonists, Jagaavar Chaudhary (Sunny Deol), a calm retired army officer, Vinay Sharma (Bobby Deol), a soft hearted school teacher and Arjun Singh (Shreyas Talpade), a hot headed recovery agent.  Their life turns upside down when their photo appears on a certain poster about vasectomy. From there on everything go haywire as they become a joke in their own village. The three then decide to right the wrong done to them but it’s a risky road for them. What follows is their crazy journey to clear their name from the whole vasectomy controversy.

What’s Hot

Bobby Deol is back! He was away from the silver screen for a quite sometime now, he returned and how. He is a revelation here. He sank his teeth into this performance and comes out with flying colours. He looks every inch the “kabhi nahin fatne wala jwalamukhi”. Not once he goes out of the character and it is “Master Vinay Sharma” you see on screen and not the charmer Bobby Deol. He gets the best role among the three and plays it with full perfection. Be it his Hindi diction, his forever vulnerable expressions, his sloping shoulders or his banter with his wife, he plays the geek with much aplomb.

Sunny Deol plays the selfie lover, retired army official and he more or less plays to the gallery. In fact, among the three he is the most sane one, barring his addiction for selfies.

Shreyas Talpade as  “Bewajah Phatne Wala Jwalamukhi” is extremely funny. Even though his character offers nothing new we haven’t seen before, it’s his perfect comic timing that brings the house down in many scenes.

The trio together share a great chemistry. Other cast members be it Vinay Sharma’s wife, Surajmukhi (Samiksha Bhatnagar), Doctor played by Ashwini Kalsekar or other characters, they are all perfectly cast and adds weightage to the movie. Special mention to the two side kicks of Shreyas Talpade, they are extremely funny. Watch out for the scenes where they enact Sunny Deol’s famous dialogues, while Sunny watches.

However, the star of the film here is Shreyas Talpade, the director. Storywise there is nothing unique or meaty but it his execution that brings the house down majorly in the first half. I am not a fan of meta jokes but here Shreyas uses them very smartly that even though you see them coming they still chuckle you up. Similarly, there are few stale whatsapp forwards but it’s the way the cast delivers it that makes it funny. He opts for cartoonish humour in the film and that works too well. For the first time helmer, he surprises.

There was zero scope for music and I am glad there were only 3 songs that too in opening credit, end credit and one in a background.

Watch out for few surprising cameos…

What’s Not

The film is not without loose ends. There are quite a few. First and foremost, the fact that their photos are a part of a certain vasectomy poster takes too much time and suspense of sorts is created for no reason. In fact during the same scenes, for some reasons makers felt the need to spell it out for the viewers to make them understand what has actually happened. Similarly, the interval point is something which was all over the promos of the film, so again trying to create a suspense at the point too falls flat.

After a breezy and funny first half, the humour does take a dip in the second half but it is the performances by each and every cast member that saves it from going downhill.

The script here had nothing much to offer but it was all about the execution. Without spoiling much away, but still Spoiler Alert!!! I didn’t understand why Sunny Deol’s character doesn’t take his clothes off and I expected that, later they might crack a joke about it but that doesn’t happen. Also the whole character trait of Bobby Deol where he forgets the sentence midway is not funny even once.

What To Do

Despite the loose ends in the script, it’s Shreyas Talpade the director along with the aura and charisma of Sunny Deol, a great performance by Bobby Deol that keep the film floating and entertains you throughout. The film doesn’t get preachy at all and yet delivers a message even if it’s half baked. Watch it for the funny jokes and the chemistry shared between Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade. You are in for a blast.

Rating:3.5 out of 53.5 Star Rating

Daddy movie review: Arjun Rampal puts in a solid performance but it is the recreation of Mumbai’s bygone era that is applause-worthy

Untitled-1

The thrilling stories of Mumbai’s underworld have inspired quite a few filmmakers. Arjun Rampal’s labour of love, Daddy hits the screens today. The film grabbed our attention ever since the first poster was released. Everyone was amazed by the uncanny resemblance between Arun Gawli and Arjun. The film is also the second big venture of filmmaker Ashim Ahluwalia whose Miss Lovely earned applause for Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the international market. Rampal has co-written the film along with Ahluwalia and the script has been vetted by Gawli himself. Do the pair of Rampal – Ahluwalia give us a rich cinematic experience with Daddy? Read on to find out..

What it is about
The film is a biopic on the life of Mumbai’s underworld don Arun Gawli who spread his reign of terror in the now-Lower Parel precinct of Byculla-Worli-Chinchpokli. It traces his journey into the world of crime after being rendered unemployed after the closure of mills in the 1970’s. It tells us how he rather reluctantly did his first killing, moved on to indulge in a game of one-upmanship and finally grew weary with the world of crime. Though the film talks about his stint as a politician, it does not trace the period when he built a nexus with the politicians in the late 80’s.

What’s hot…
Daddy is a docu-drama in the truest sense. The film does not have any cinematic excesses, diving straight into the story of a jobless young man’s foray into the world of crime. What strike us instantly are the beautifully crafted visuals. Cinematographers Jessica Lee Gagne and Pankaj Kumar have captured the milieu of the 1970’s with total mastery. The crowded chawls, winding lanes and seedy bars look picture perfect. Coming to the cast, it is a bunch of solid performers. Arjun Rampal puts in an earnest performance, which picks up real momentum in the second half. He is matched in the acting department by Nishikant Kamat, who plays Inspector Vijaykar with aplomb. Supporting actors Rajesh Shringarpure and Anand Ingale suit their characters. There is some wry dark humour that makes you chuckle. The gang war scenes are deftly shot and Ashim manages to build tension every time Gawli reaches for his pistol. Sajid-Wajid’s background score is impactful though used a little too generously.

What’s not…
Daddy’s biggest drawback is in the story-telling. Even though the story is told in documentary format, it is tough to understand for a layman. It has a non-linear narrative that picks up from various phases of Gawli’s life. Also, it is disappointing that they did not touch upon the Hindu-Muslim divide, which was a key point in the gang wars of the 1970’s. Gawli is shown more as this secular guy who is in love with a Muslim girl and reaches out to them after the Bombay riots. Even Dawood Ibrahim is not referred to by his name. It is Bhai/Maqsood. Farhan Akhtar is a real disappointment. He does not evoke any menace and looks like he has come for a costume party. It is one of the film’s biggest let-downs given that he is not in a ‘cameo’. Arjun shines in the scenes with actress Aishwarya Rajesh (Zubeida/Asha Gawli) but their relationship never touches an emotional high for us to feel strongly for them. While the horrific murder of Kundan Dubey is shown, we do not see the murder of Haseena Parkar’s husband. The turning point in Gawli’s story is the death of Rama Naik but Ashim does not invest much emotion in that scene. Trying to capture four decades of anyone’s life in a film is tough, more so of a don like Gawli. Still, the film loses pace in-between and we feel it could have been 15 minutes shorter.

Verdict
Daddy is complete cinema engaging various aspects of film-making with finesse. However, the story might not resonate with the masses due to the low emotional quotient. Watch it for the good performances and stunning look into Mumbai’s bygone eras. And it will be more enjoyable if you read up a bit on Arun Gawli and head to the theatres…

Game Of Thrones Season 7 finale ‘The Dragon And The Wolf’ review: Tyrion’s interaction with Cersei, Theon’s fight and Night King’s swag will leave you eager for the final season

Sansa-The-Dragon-and-the-Wolf

One of the most awaited episodes of all time, Game Of Thrones season 7 finale is finally here. Let’s find out what it’s all about, what was hot and what’s not…

What’s It About

After catching the undead, Jon, The Hound, Tyrion, Daenerys, Ser Davos, Ser Jorah, among others, march to winterfell. They have a meet up at the dragon pit with Cersei, Jaime, Bronn and Euron. Where Euron taunts Theon and Tyrion of their shortcomings. The conversation doesn’t as expected but Tyrion saves the day. On the other side in Winterfell, Littlefinger hints Sansa about murdering Arya. Tyrion’s conversation with Cersei, Cersei’s with Jamie, Theon’s with Jon, Sansa’s with Littlefinger, Bran’s with Samwell forms the rest of the episode…

What’s Hot

For the first time in seven seasons, the five main leads of the show, Jon, Cersei, Tyrion, Jaime and Daenerys, shared the same frame. If this is not best moment for all the fans then what is? The tension, the camaraderie, everything was so brilliant. However, it was Tyrion’s conversation with Cersei and Theon’s face-off with his own army that were the USP for me. And without giving away any spoilers, watch out for the scene towards the end. The MVP of this episode are Tyrion, Theon, Sansa, Jaime and Night King.

Also, there is heartbreaking scene, which may not be for the most but was at least for me, that takes place at winterfell. You’ll know when you see it..

What’s Not

Now here’s a little SPOILER ALERT – The sex scene, the boat sex to be precise, the much talked about felt quite underwhelming when it actually happened. Also the episode is not at all high on thrills, except for the final scene, but acts as a lull before the storm. So for those expecting the unexpected may be left disappointed.

What To Do

Overall, the episode is worth your time. It, I believe, is the longest episode of the series so far and it again proves worth the wait. Irrespective of whether It’s good or bad, you are gonna catch it. All I can say is, stay away from the web, until you do.
