Dabangg 2 Movie Review

Dabangg 2(U/A)

Length 2hrs. 9 min.

Movie is set in Kanpur,this time Chulbul Pandey's opponent is Bachha Bhaiya(Prakash Raj).This time also movie delivers the same action sequences seen in the first.Salman Khan delivers a superb performance while Sonasakhi Sinha is just ok.Movie has nothing much to say in terms of story.If you are looking for some serious cinemas this is surely not the one.But still Dabangg is not that boring which was actually expected from the film.Dabangg 2 is better than first but still it has lots of plot holes.Villian of the movie is also unable to give much trouble to Chulbul Pandey which makes movie unpredictable and lacks to create curiosity .Overall Dabangg is just another movie in the series with nothing special in it.

Ratings-2.5/5 Stars

Talaash Movie Review

Talaash(U/A)- 2hrs. 22Min.


Movie opens up in scene in which a car goes directly into sea. Film star Armaan Kapoor who was driving is no more. Inspector Shekhawat (Aamir Khan) has been assigned this case. Talaash is not just a murder mystery but it has much more to say. Shekhawat & his wife Roshni (Rani Mukherjee) has lost their 8 yrs. Old child in an accident, which has taken happiness from their life. Talaash has a gripping story line which holds you till the end. In spite of feeling curious, you will find it interesting & engaging.
Inspector Shekhawat  meets a sex worker Rosy( Kareena Kapoor) one day & gets help from her in solving the case. Shekhawat starts spending whole night with her a number of times, talking about the case & his life matters. But he feels that every clue he is getting leads him to even more darkness. First half of the movie is quiet enjoyable & indulging while the initial second half drags a bit for almost 15-20 minutes. The Climax of the movie comes in an unexpected way. In spite of answering all the questions it makes you think how the sequence are connected & why did it happen.
In total Talaash is movie which cannot be missed if you like movies which leaves an impact & makes you think that.

Chakravyuh Movie Review

Length-2hrs. 32Min
Movie is about naxals existing in rural India.Adil Khan(Arjun Rampal) is Police Officer who himself takes the responsibility of finishing the naxal existing at Nandighat near Bhopal. With the help of his best friend Kabir(Abhay Deol) he sooner gets grip on the naxals. But his friend Kabir realizes that naxals are fighting for their own rights & there is nothing wrong in it. He tries to explain this to Adil but he fails to understand and finally each of them chooses different path which leads to fighting with each other.

Movie other than naxals focuses on the corrupt politicians and businessman who justs wants to make money by any means. Movie lacks Indian masala and it’s pure indulging socio political drama. Ending of the movie is a bit unexpected & thought provoking about the fighting going on between naxals & police of India.Overall it’s a one time watch movie only if you are interested in serious movies, otherwise you may get a bit bored.

Heroine Movie Review

Heroine(A)-148 Min

Heroine is the story about Mahi Arora(Kareena Kapoor) who suffers from bipolar disorder and is a successful actress. But her career shows downfall as soon she broke up with superstar Aryan Khanna(Arjun Rampal).Although she is being marketed again by her PR & becomes successful but she loses the most beloved person in her life.

The story is not told in a systematic way & also keeps on jumping from days, months & years that makes movie confusing & difficult to understand. The Expectations from the Madhur Bhandarkar film is let down who made some of the national award winning movie.Movie is dull & fails in engaging its audience with it.Story just keeps on moving even sometimes scenes are not narrated properly. Only positive point of the movie is Kareena’s performance & 1 or 2 good songs.

Ratings    2/5 Stars

Verdict      Not good (Average)

Barfi Movie Review

Barfi(U)- 150 Min.

Movie is about a guy named Murphy (Ranbir Kapoor) usually called as Barfi by everyone, who is mute & deaf by birth. Instead of being so, he enjoys life in his own way. A girl named Shruti (Ileana D'Cruz) falls in love with him because of his unique way of enjoying life. But she is warned by her mother that getting married with barfi wouldn’t lead her anywhere in life & she gets married with another guy named Ranjit Sen Gupta ( Jishu ).Barfi not being with Shruti finds Jhilmil(Priyanka Chopra) which is somewhat like him & continues the journey of life with her. But Jhilmil gets murdered by someone & Barfi is suspect for that. Will Barfi be able to proof his innocence? Who murdered Jhilmil? Will Shruti to able to come back to her true love or not? Does Barfi still have feelings for Shruti?

Barfi redefines Indian cinema in its unique way of storytelling. Till intermission Barfi has a lot of moments which are enjoyable because of the freshness in it . After intermission Barfi seems to slow down on the story-line & it becomes a little boring for sometime. After a little while movie gets back on the track & ends well.Overall, Barfi is a nice movie which can be seen once due to its freshness.

Rating: 3/5 Star
