  • Predictions of Forthcoming films

    SHOOTOUT AT WADALA: The film has got the buzz and the item songs have ensured that the hoi-polloi flocks to theater. The film can have around 9-10cr Day 1 and 30-32cr weekend which will be healthy enough. If accepted well, the film can have a very strong run as there is no hard-core Mass film releasing for next five weeks until YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA. Lifetime Predictions Day 1- 9-10cr Weekend- 30-32cr Lifetime- If Good WOM: 80-85 If Mixed WOM: 67-72 If Bad WOM: 55-59cr GO GOA GONE: The film has perfect recipe for youth crowd of multiplexes. It has something new in its kitty which hasn’t been exploited in Indian cinema before. But after the first promo, the film didn’t come up with anything exciting,

  • Sanket’s review: “Saheb Biwi aur Gangster returns” isn’t exactly satisfying, though has a high share of positives.

    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

  • Sanket’s Review: “I me aur main” serves well as a sleeping pill.

    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

  • Sanket’s Review: “The attacks of 26/11” is well executed film.

    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

  • Sanket’s Review: “Kai Po Che” has unfeigned charm.

    Cast: Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh, Raj Kumar yadav, Amrita Puri. 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. For further review, visit the below link –

  • Sanket’s Review : “Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story” is a flawed fun.

    Cast: Vivek Oberoi, Neha Sharma. Director: Vinnil Markan 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. For further review, please visit the below link –

  • Box Office Predictions of MURDER 3

    After the super success of MURDER 2 back in July 2011, this franchise hits theater on 15th February 2013, directed by debutant Vishesh Bhatt and fresh casting of Randeep Hooda, Sara Loren and Aditi Rao Hyadari. Unlike the last installment, this film has not really generated any sort of buzz.

  • Sanket’s Review: “David” is perfect example of opportunity lost.

    Cast: Neil Nitin Mukesh, Vikram, Tabu, Monika Dogra, Lara Dutta, Isha Sharvani, Vinay Virmani Director: Bejoy Nambiar Length: 2.30 hours approximately. 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. For further review, visit below link -

  • Sanket’s Review: “ABCD Any body can dance” is a fair attempt, but could have been something substantial.

    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,

  • Sanket’s Review: “Special 26”- The finale gives the boost.

    Cast: Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Manoj Bajpai, Jimmy Shergill, Kajal Aggarwal. Director: Neeraj Pandey Length : 2.20 hours approximately One will surely have high hopes from the director who made A WEDNESDAY in past. Unlike that excellent thriller, SPECIAL 26 is far from excellence. That doesn’t imply it doesn’t work, in-fact S26 makes its mark, thanks to its unpredictable climax, but the director and writer could have done so much more. It doesn’t help the film adding lip sync songs and that puerile love story angle which only distracts you from the poignant moments of the film.

  • Box Office Predictions of SPECIAL 26

    Neeraj Pandey returns back to the directorial position with SPECIAL 26,after delivering the much acclaimed and a good Box Office success “A WEDNESDAY”. SPECIAL 26 stars Anupam Kher, Kajal Agarwal, Akshay Kumar, Jimmy Shergil and Manoj Bajpai. Slated to release on 8th February, this film have not gathered the eyeballs despite of A list actor. The film may not open to good figures, but can do well in its lifetime run if gets accepted. But the film faces too much of competition and also its not a solo release. The dance film ABCD have generated good buzz and may prove to be a good competition to SPECIAL 26. Lets predict the figures for SPECIAL 26….

  • Sanket’s Review: “Vishwaroop” is shocking, thrilling and insightful.

    Cast: Kamal Hasaan, Rahul Bose, Andrea Jeremiah, Pooja Kumar, Jaideep Ahlawat. Director: Kamal Hasaan Length: 2.25 hours approximately. Easily the best film of 2013, VISHWAROOP is shocking, thrilling and insightful. Its far from perfect film, not even close to it, but it has lot more to serve. The plot of the film is interesting, although executed in very cinematic format, and the story is well penned. VISHWAROOP also taps heroism like many Hindi films based on terrorism, but with strong support of story. For further review, visit below link –

  • Sanket’s Review: “AkaashVani” often dodges between boredom and lovable.

    Cast: Kartik Twiari, Nushrat Bharucha, Gautam Mehra, Sunny Singh, Sana Shaikh. Director: Luv ranjan Length : 2.30 hours approximately. To tell a very simple message of simple people, Luv ranjan makes his protagonists go back and forth in their relationships and the story goes so haywire that at one point you realize that their problem could be solved with just one meeting where all can sit and have a talk! To drag the film to 2.30 hours when the story has plot holes from all sides, it becomes impossible to sit through! Thanks to the warm chemistry our lead pair shares, AKAASHVANI has moments packed up nicely, but in between the delightful moments there are scenes which are lazily shot. That particular scene on Railway

  • Sanket’s Review: “RACE 2” is thoroughly enjoyable despite its filmy clichés.

    Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandes, Amesha Patel. Director: Abbas-Mastan Length : 2.25 hours approximately Spoon-Feeding in thrillers is something that plays major spoilsport, but keeping things unanswered doesn’t harm any less. In this week’s sequel to that excellent 2008 thriller, RACE 2, Abbas-Mustan serves you entertainment but with hurdles. RACE (2008) was interesting because it had many twists and turns thrown at regular interval making the pace brisk and keeping the audience guessing! RACE 2 also offers few twists, although few predictable, but the pattern of twists is mostly borrowed from the first installment. Anyhow, nitpickings aside, RACE 2 still has entertainment galore because of its grandeur, its bizarre and weird elements.

  • Box Office Predictions of RACE 2

    pReleased 5 years ago, RACE registered a record-breaking opening on its first day and went on to collect a handsome amount of 63cr in its entire run which was excellent back then! Looks like RACE 2 is all set to double that figure. Starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandes, Amisha Patel, RACE 2 is directed by Abbas- Mastan and the the film is about to release on 25th January. The music has been decent but the film will still start with very good collections because of the brand name.

  • Sanket’s Review: “Inkaar” is frustratingly poor film.

    Cast: Arjun Rampal, Chitrangada Singh. Director: Sudhir Mishra Length : 2.05 hours approximately Coming from Sudhir Mishra, its hard to believe INKAAR is such a frustratingly poor film. The director has made good to brilliant cinema in past like “Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi”, “Khoya Khoya Chand”, “yeh Saali Zindagi”, but this time around his film based on a solemn issue like sexual harassment is unengaging and largely disappointing! The film is brought on from a wafer thin plot where there are innumerable flashbacks. Seriously, the writers, if any, must go back and learn their principles. The way flashbacks are written and brought, it only makes the viewer feel flustered and flummoxed!

  • Sanket’s Review: “Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola” suffers from its over-ambitious director, though is saved by the performers.

    Cast: Pankaj Kapoor, Imran Khan, Anushka Sharma, Shabana Azmi, Arya Babbar. Director: Vishal Bhardwaj Length: 2.30 hours approximately Vishal Bhardwaj is known for making “out of the box” type of cinema. He has given us some gripping tales in past like “Omkara”, “Maqbool”, “Kaminey”, but sadly it seems the director is losing his hold over his films which reflected in “7 Khoon Maaf” and now “Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola”. Bhardwaj infuses so much of smart narration that it sidelines a well written script. What queers me is that he attempted pronounced humor in his film making a caricature out of Arya Babbar! Who would have thought of slapstick gags in a film directed by Bhardwaj! For further, visit below link-

  • Sanket’s Review: “Table No. 21” has its heart in the right place, but it deserved better writing.

    Cast: Paresh Rawal, Raajev Khandelwal, Teena Desae Director: Aditya Datt Length: 1.45 hours approximately. To start of this New Year, we have this week’s “Table No.21” which has its heart in right place, but deserved better writing. The film makes a point to deliver a very good message and has social concern too, but all it would have hit the nail had the writers justified with their job. Not that the message is not clear, but its just not louder! For further, visit below link- http://bollywoodism-bollywoodism.blogspot.in/2013/01/sankets-review-table-no-21-has-its.html

  • Worst films of 2012- My views.

    10. EKK DEEWANA THA: Remake of a south film, “Ekk tha deewana” is painfully long even at modest run-time of 140 minutes. Even Rahman’s music score fails to inject life in the film. Not completely unbearable, thanks to few adorable moments in first half, but for the most part its a film that bores you! 9. TERI MERI KAHAANI After sharing crackling chemistry in “Kaminey”, this combo of Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra leaves you exhausted in “Teri Meri Kahaani”. The major hiccup lies in the second half where the film travels back to 1910. Not even modicum of charm of that era is been brought on by screen by Kunal Kohli.

  • Best Male and Female performers of 2012- My views.

    2012 has been a fascinating year. Few films had unprecedented box office success as well as audience’s acceptance, while few films did not really set the box office on fire but surely placed themselves in hearts of audience. Here are my bests of 2012 performances. Male – 5. Sharman Joshi in Ferrari Ki Sawaari- In this small little heart warming film, Sharman Joshi plays a very adorable father and a martinet son. He packs an excellent performance and he has instant connect too! 4. Aamir Khan in Talaash- As a confused and depressed cop, Aamir Khan shines once again in a role which has its own oxymoronic rhythm. There are many layers to his characters and Aamir conveys his emotions through right blend of expressions

  • Sanket’s Review: “Dabangg 2” reaffirms the thought that Salman can rise above the script in these roles.

    Cast: Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Vinod Khanna, Prakash Raaj, Arbaaz Khan. Director: Arbaaz Khan Length: 2 hours approximately I firmly believed that Salman’s DABANGG (2010) act was his best till date. Not anymore, because I have seen its extended installation. Arbaaz Khan’s directorial venture called DABANGG 2 is entertaining, courtesy Salman Khan. The film doesn’t boast of smart narrating, or gripping plot, but it surely gives you worth of every single penny, provided you can accept these mindless cinemas, today’s staple food, with open arms!
