Cast: Jimmy Shergill, Raj Babbar, Mahie Gill, Irrfan Khan, Soha Ali Khan.
Director: Tigmanshu Dhulia
Length: 2.20 hours approx.
Now the prequel to this film that released in September 2011, wasn’t exactly great film, but it had a strong story-line which kept the moments glued and the film engaging. What lacked there was the sort of performances which would have taken film much higher. Apart from Randeep Hooda, no one really managed a noteworthy performance. The sequel has different thing to say. The film has terrific performances but saddles down with the script and screenplay.
The film starts very well with each character being described smartly. But the film drags along a lot with few scenes. Despite of humorous dialogues imposed at most of the places, yet, the scenes in this half particularly look dull. The film goes on and on and on and at-east two times gives you chance to peep into your watch. At 85 minutes first half, there are scenes which could have been easily trimmed. Too much time is given to express Mahie Gill’s bold and seductive character. However, there are few scenes that will leave you in splits like the one when the Politician gets worked up at-least twice, once when he isn’t able to get the adjustment of the webcam and the next time when he is unable to exit while he is watching porn. Also the scene where Irrfan tries to extract a modicum amount of blood out of his finger, with abundance amount of fear gearing him. Continue reading
Cast: John Abraham, Prachi Desai, Mini Mathur, Chitrangada Singh, Zarina Wahab, Raima Sen.
Director: Kapil Sharma
Length: 1.45 hours approximately
Even at just 105 minutes long, you feel like you have been made to sit through an endless saga called I ME AUR MAIN. Packed with trite idea and bromidic characters, it’s a film that serves well as a sleeping pill. In its cool, buoyant, urbane outlook, I ME AUR MAIN suffers from sluggish pace and dull moments. The major setback is that the director unfolds things too easily and the conflict or the dispute is never really felt.
The film starts off well but by the time it reaches the half mark, within just 45 minutes that is, it loses its spark. Focusing on the personality traits of a self-obsessed man, the film also sneaks into family bickering and office rivalries. And the love triangle is largely predictable with all the female characters plodded as stereotypes. Couple of moments however does strike chord. Like the one where John tries to flaunt his well toned exercised physique by jumping off from 10 feet, or the one in building corridor where Prachi Desai teaches John to say sorry! But, unfortunately moments like these only stays for evanescence, because what follows in second hour of the film fades away all little positives which the film built over the cost of first half.

Cast: Nana Pathekar
Director: Ram Gopal Verma
Length : 1.55 hours approximately
Tapping on the real life events of Mumbai’s 26/11 mishap, this weeks new release THE ATTACKS OF 26/11 directed by Ram Gopal Verma is engaging, thrilling and emotionally grounded. It’s a film that’s far from perfect, thanks to countless irrelevant slo-mos that are depicted that brings down the momentum. Yet, it’s a pat on the back of RGV who successfully manages to give us a bird’s eye view on the whole terrorist attack. In just 115 minutes we are served with the entrance of terrorists to Mumbai till the execution of Ajmal Kasab. Narrated through the eyes of Nana Pathekar, the film enjoys a bumper advantage because its tracking the incidents which are real and thus very familiar to the audience. And thus, it won’t really take any extra effort to create tautness among the viewers.
The film straight away starts with the major portions. Although the scene at the ship is too dragged and stapled with loud background score, yet we are anticipating the next reel. Just when the first bullet is fired, this film goes on a new high. The episodes are thrilling and shocking. It might dismiss you the fact that there is very noisy bullet firing and might struck at your ears. But it definitely gives the authenticity constraint a boost that it required. The direction by RGV is very conventional and routine. His camera flocks around the people, just to derive emotional interludes, who are soon to be the victims of the attacks. Frankly, such gimmicks are too redundant to use in today’s films. The episode of attack at Taj Mahal Hotel is too long with too much of time wasted to make the film cinematically enthralling! However, the episode of firing at CST station
The second half is more engaging, especially when the terrorist is caught by the police officers. However, it’s the last 20 minutes where THE ATTACKS of 26/11 makes its mark. The scene where Nana Pathekar confronts the character of Kasab is highly nail-biting. Also the scene where Nana Pathekar in a horrific mood tries to give Kasab a lesson of religion and humanity will keep you numb. Its moments like these where RGV strikes gold and displays sheer amaze at helm of direction.
The background score is outstanding at times. The screenplay is sharp especially post-intermission, but there is large amount of benefit the writers take as its just research that would take them to make a riveting script. Yet, they never fail to inject cinematic conjunctions between one after the other scene. The dialogues are fabulous, especially towards the end. The dialogues mouthed by Nana Pathekar are clap-worthy and evokes sentimental affiliation. Continue reading

Director: Abhishek Kapoor
Length : 2 hrs approximately
Borrowed from the written material of Chetan Bhagat’s “3 Mistakes of my life”, director Abhishek Kapoor’s cinematic adaptation KAI PO CHE remains mostly faithful to the novel. The film traces various situations which draws wedge between the three friends with different ambition and different responsibility. What makes KAI PO CHE a must-watch are the beautiful and heartfelt moments that stays with you for an eternity.

Length: 2.05 hours approximately.
It would be too unreasonable on the viewer’s part if they did expect JAYANTABHAI KI LUV STORY to have smart narration, or slow paced drama etc. I am sure no-one of us can do that, and therefore with whatever cinematic liberties that it utilizes, the film manages to entertain you. Yes, JBKLS works as comical romance although it gets heavily distracted to the plot involving bad looking gangsters.

Bollywood isn’t really known for smart films, and not that I am complaining, but it really ails one seeing something as absurd as DAVID despite of having a very good plot. Lasting endlessly, DAVID fails to draw attention unless it comes into its finale which has to be one of the smartest of recent times. However, DAVID is perfect example of opportunity lost. SHAITAAN directed by same director was more fun, quirky and equally enthralling. DAVID lacks in almost every area.

Cast: Prabhudeva, Ganesh Acharya, Kay Kay Menon.
Director: Remo D’souza
Length: 2.20 hours approximately.
We know that the film is all about dance, we know that the film has almost all newcomers, but that doesn’t allow the film to be a script-less one! ABCD borrows most of its plots from CHAK DE INDIA. The film deals with bonding of two important players who has a war with each other, also it shows its coach, Prabhudeva here, has lost his game in beginning and trying to revive his lost privilege and self-esteem by employing, or rather helping the street-rowdy dancers to make it to a challenging dance competition. Haven’t we seen all this plots, in different contexts though, in CHAK DE INDIA? Yes, we did! Yet, ABCD is a watchable film. Yes, despite its banality in script it still has something in it which makes it a passable affair. You guessed it right- the dance moves, the deadly dance set-pieces and rocking attitude of every dancer exclusively in dance. How I wish the dancers had practiced on acting too!
