  • Jab Tak Hai Jaan has blockbuster written all over it!

    (As may be recalled, I have been saying this for months that both SOS and JTHJ will embark on a good start. I had even put up a survey regarding which film will do better in which circuit. The only point I disagreed with was Bihar leading or SOS in Bihar. The same has now been confirmed.The opening is more or less on expected lines). Jab Tak Hai Jaan has blockbuster written all over it! I checked out the film with a bunch of my students. And here are my views. ( I kind of agree with what Gorilla says)

  • Gorilla’s WOM – Jab Tak Hain Jaan #JTHJ, Son of Sardaar #SOS

    Son of Sardaar: Son of Sardaar is carrying good WOM. It is a time pass movie and a perfect Diwali release. The movie had issues in getting single screens and this will affect its final total. Unlike its southern original, this will not be a blockbuster. Critics have predictably panned this film but filmgoers are liking it. The WOM is better than Bol Bachchan. Verdict: Hit (Rs 90-95 Cr) Potential loss due to JTHJ – at least 25 Cr Jab Tak Hain Jaan: Jab Tak Hain Jaan is carrying good WOM. It is a one time watch movie and has a better release in terms of single screen than SOS. This will ensure a better week 1 than SOS. However those looking for a blockbuster

  • Movie Review: Jab Tak Hai Jaan ndtv

    Tiding over the logical incongruity of an ageing superstar playing a twenty-something lover boy who matches steps with a vivacious actress half his age might take some doing. But once you manage to get that mental holdup out the way, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Yash Chopra’s last film, is a perfectly fitting finale to an eventful life and career. The screenplay by Aditya Chopra and Devika Bhagat is by no means flawless but, for the most part, Jab Tak Hai Jaan is watchable, if somewhat emotionally manipulative …. Watch Jab Tak Hai Jaan not just for the obvious sentimental reason but for the fact that it shows, for one last time, what Bollywood will miss now that the undisputed master of romantic sagas is no

  • SON OF SARDAAR Review-Komal Nahta

    Posted on November 13, 2012 SON OF SARDAAR Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, Ajay Devgn Ffilms and YRV Infra & Media Pvt. Ltd.’s Son of Sardaar (UA) is the story of age-old enmity between two families of Punjab. Jasvinder Singh Randhawa ( Ajay Devgan) is the sole male survivor in the family which had been wiped off completely even when he was in his mother’s womb. His mother has left the village to save her unborn child. She has since passed away, and Jasvinder now works in a club in London. The club is owned by an uncle-nephew team (Sanjay Mishra & Salman Khan in a special appearance). The other family, still living in the same village in Punjab, has Balvinder Singh Sandhu (Sanjay Dutt) as

  • Movie Review: Jab Tak Hai Jaan (#JTHJ)

    I watched FDFS of JTHJ today and went with enormous expectation. This was my 5th FDFS movie and my second FDFS movie of Yash Chopra. I am a big fan of Yash Chopra’s films. His earlier movies (Deewar, Daag, Waqt) are my absolute favourite. He faltered a bit in early and mid ’80s…but was back with a bang with Chandni, one of my favorite movies of 80s. Then he made Lamhe, which I did not like at all. Even till date Lamhe has failed to grow on me and I fail to understand the hullaballoo about it. Yash Chopra won me very soon with Darr. I loved his DTPH when it released, though now I think it was just about good and quite overrated. Yash

  • Movie Review: JAB TAK HAI JAAN by FENIL SETA

    ‘A Yash Chopra Romance’…that’s what the poster of Jab Tak Hai Jaan reads. And that was one of the hugest reasons to catch the film ASAP, besides of course the wonderful cast comprising of Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. A R Rahman’s music, Gulzarsaab’s lyrics and Aditya Chopra’s touching poem added to the excitement. And not to forget, the untimely demise of Mr Chopra couple of weeks before the release of the film gave a huge shock to moviegoers and a further impetus to catch the film as soon as it’s in theatres. After all, it’s the master director’s final stroke of brilliance! And thankfully, Jab Tak Hai Jaan does fulfill the expectations. It’s 179 minutes long but keeps one hooked effortlessly.

  • Movie review: Son Of Sardaar

    It takes a mini deluge to bring Son of Sardaar to an end. In the climactic duel between the protagonist (Ajay Devgn) and his chief adversary (Sanjay Dutt), the former is hurled against a water tank. On impact, the thick reservoir wall caves in and a torrent gushes out, carrying bricks, mortar and the two brawling men with it. All hate is washed away in a jiffy and the woman (Juhi Chawla) who has waited a quarter century for this moment of reckoning in order to marry her lover promises to bear him two children and name them Happy and Ending. Tickle yourself. The ending is welcome indeed, but happy it certainly isn’t. When a movie tries too hard to be funny and the effort

  • Jab Tak Hai Jaan Extraordinary Opening at Multiplexes

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network Jab Tak Hai Jaan had an extraordinary opening at multiplexes collecting full houses or near full across the board. The opening was excellent even at multiplexes which are not known to take a huge opening in the first show. The pace will slow after 12 noon due to Dilwali Puja but in some circuits the effect of Diwali Puja is limited and those circuits will come out with huge numbers. The opening has opened at record pace in Mysore and West Bengal with multiplexes recording mind boggling numbers and with Bangalore having a limit of shows on screenings per film, the release of Jab Tak Hai Jaan is on par with the biggest releases so it may even manage a record opening

  • 3.5/5 – Movie Review: ‘Son Of Sardaar’ is a rollicking entertainer

    Son Of Sardaar movie review; Starring Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt, Juhi Chawla, Tanuja, Mukul Dev, Vindoo Dara Singh; Directed by Ashwani Dhir; Rating: ***1/2 Every time Vindu Dara Singh, who plays a part of an extended patriarchal Punjabi parivaar in the Sikh heartland, opens his mouth to speak, he is shushed down by others saying, “Silencer lagaa.” By God, at times you feel this loud, flamboyant, ostentatious yet-all right, admit it-sinfully engaging film should just pipe down. There is so much that’s noisy about this film. And we aren’t talking about Sandeep Chowta‘s over-accented background score. Yet it’s never unpleasant noise. Son Of Sardaar takes us into the core of a family feud in Punjab where Sanjay Dutt, playing a goofy oddball of a Panjabi patriarch as

  • Jab Tak Hai Jaan Takes Earth Shattering Opening at Box Office

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan has taken an Earth Shattering Opening at the Box Office on Tuesday, the opening day of the film. Occupancy for the early Morning Shows are in the range of 80-90%. High-end plexes are reporting Housefull or 90%+ occupancies. Many shows for the day is already Sold Out. Shahrukh Khan brand, Diwali Holiday, Yash Chopra name, YRF banner, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma have worked big time and because of curiosity movie goers are running to theaters and hence the result. Now with such a great start, Noon shows are certainly going to be huge. It is to be seen whether Evening and Night shows will perform on the same range as Morning shows. If it does Humongous First Day on the

  • Movie Review – Son Of Sardaar , TOI

    Review: Move over Chicken Khurana, the real butter kukkad is here. And he’s here with a bang this Diwali – singing, dancing, flipping in the air – all in the mustard fields of Phagwara (that’s in Punjab, FYI), classic Bollywoodishtyle. Except that this is a Singham getting Dabangg and Rowdier than anyRathore - on Punjabi steroids – and in total sardaar avatar. Hadippa! So bring out that tall glass of chilled lassi and let’s figure the why, what, who of this desi-ghee story. Jassi (Ajay Devgn) jaisa koi nahi. He falls in love-at-first-sight, in a train with Sukhmeet (Sonakshi), call her Sukh please (she’s quite a ‘peace’ of work); and ends up as a guest in her mad-house full of comical sardaars - The Sandhus. There’s the head-of-the-house Billu paaji(Sanjay Dutt), bros Tony (Mukul Dev) and Tito (Vindoo Dara Singh), who’ve sworn to never

  • 3/5 – Movie Review: ‘Son of Sardaar’ – Pakistan Daily Times

    A certain school of thought would believe that films need to exhibit cinematic values while the other would beg to differ. For them, movies are all about entertainment, entertainment and entertainment. And as Vidya ‘Silk’ Balan had rightly said in ‘The Dirty Picture’, it’s all about providing entertainment, you see! So who cares? As long as you are able to leave your routine life outside the theatre and are ready to take a fairytale ride on celluloid, it hardly does matter, Zee News reports. So, as India gears up to celebrate the festival of lights, Ajay Devgn’s ‘Son of Sardaar’ comes in as an entertaining treat. The multi-starrer action cum rom-com is quite a predictable story, but does unfold its share of subtle surprises. ‘Son

  • Film Review | Son of Sardaar

    Devgn, Dutt and Sinha, the lead actors, are uninspired and go through the film like a rigmarole—mouthing loud dialogues like robots in a stale Punjabi scheme of things. Son of Sardaar is the worst Hindi cinema has portrayed Punjabiyat. http://www.livemint.com/Leisure/3GAjK73v3Bb4fNRLRKcuXK/Film-Review–Son-of-Sardar.html

  • Son Of Sardar Review by Nikhil Arora 2/5

    Currently, we have a trend going on in the industry where masala means slow-motion violence, one love story and the hero defeating the villain in an 80s style homage. Bollywood is a market of trends and each trend goes bad at some point. I wondered when the audience will get tired of these kind of films. Son of Sardaar could signal the start of the end. At least in my book, it does. http://www.desimartini.com/reviews/nikhil-arora-son-of-sardar/rd18192md1601.htm
