Kai Po Che Movie Review

Kai Po Che! (U)

Length:  2 hrs. 6 Min

Kai Po Che is adapted from the Chetan Bhagat’s bestseller novel The 3 Mistakes of My Life. It’s a story about three friends who lives in Ahmedabad. They start a sports shop cum academy by borrowing loan from one of the relatives. But due to the earthquakes which came in Gujarat during that time destroys their shop and brings problems in their friendship as well. What happens after this is a part of the movie.
                                                                                                      Abhishek Kapoor as a director has delivered exactly what a cinema needs to. The camera work of Ajay Goswani is brilliant; it follows step by step to the plot and the footsteps of the star cast. Screenplay of Kai Po Che could have been a bit better. Raj Kumar Yadav (Govind Patel) has played a stiff penny-pincher nicely while Amit Sadh (Omi) seems quiet indulged with his character but Sushant Singh Rajput (Ishaan) acts natural and looks confident in playing his part.
                           Kai Po Che is quiet realistic but yet highly entertaining movie. The Chemistry between the three actors as friend gives you the real and convincing feel. Abhishek Kapoor’s direction never dumps down & it’s quiet engaging which dips inside the human emotions & realistic sequences. In the second half the story drags a bit although the climax is good.
                                                                                 Overall, Kai Po Che is a cinematic experience which is rare in Bollywood.

Ratings: 4/5 Stars

Murder 3 Movie Review

Murder 3 (U/A)

Length- 2hrs

Murder 3 which a sequel to Murder franchise of the Bhatt camp. This time Emraan Hashmi has been replaced by Randeep Hooda. Vikram (Randeep Hooda) is a photographer who’s girlfriend Roshini (Aditi Rao Hydari) is missing. She has only left a video message to forget her. Vikram tries to forget her by getting indulge with Nisha (Sara Loren) a waitress.

As Murder 3 proceeds it quickly dumps down to a boring plot till the intermission after that the story has been narrated again with an explanation point of view for the incidents that took place in first half which makes it a bit interesting. But, yet there is no suspense in the movie which makes you curious to what could be the possible ending.

Aditi Rao Hydari looks charming and has made some efforts to deliver her role. Randeep Hooda fails to deliver a good performance while Sara Loren struggles to get engaged with her character numerous times.

One of the most unique thing about this sequel is that none of the person is murdered in the movie which was common in other parts. Possibly, the debut director Vishesh Bhatt tries to justify the tagline that this valentine love will be murdered not a person or human being which is part of the climax of the movie.

Vishesh Bhatt as a director tries to show something unique and innovative but it seems that he needs to gain some more experience to deliver it.

Climax of the movie leaves you in a situation where you might expect something more to convey or to be explained about the characters.

Overall, Murder 3 is certainly not a good choice to watch.

Ratings – 2/5 Stars

Special Chabbis Movie Review

Special Chabbis (U/A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 23 min. 32 sec

Special Chabbis is a movie about heists which took place somewhere in 80’s all over India by the name of CBI from a group of conmen. Neeraj Pandey creates a complete atmosphere of 80’s through this film ranging from 50’s & 100 rupees notes, dressing sense, attitude, style even screenplay is quiet matching with the tune. Ajay (Akshay Kumar) is the mastermind behind the gang of fake CBI conmen with Sharma (Anupam Kher) being his partner along with two fellows.
                                                                                                                                                 Special Chabbis has a nice plot and a bit of comedy attached to it to make sure that you are not bored. Set in 1987 Neeraj Pandey provides non-high tech but yet convincing and engaging storyline . Akshay Kumar looks simple and quiet into the character while Anupam Kher & Manoj Bajpai both has done a good job as well. Camera work in the film keeps experimenting with a lot of unique angle and different point of views.
                                                                  Neeraj Pandey does not disappoint after a Wednesday he delivers a better and mature cinema. Special Chabbis is nice movie and it’s highly recommended that you watch it.

Vishwaroop Movie Review

Vishwaroop (U/A)

Length  2hrs. 29 Min

Vishwaroop is a movie about terrorism. Vishwanath (Kamal Haasan) is a kathak teacher in New York, who lives with his wife Nirupama (Pooja Kumar). Both of them are married to each other just to fulfil their needs of family pressure for marriage & green card respectively. Both of them quickly entangles into terror network headed by Omar (Rahul Bose).
                                                  Starting of the movie is good it gives you nice feeling of watching a spy thriller shot in good locations. But soon it jumps to Afghanistan, its then and there movie lose its track and drags a lot ,showing you just the attacks by US air force on Afghanistan and their counterpart also many other meetings and training but never creates an interest to watch it consistently. Its only sometime after interval that some of the sequences gets connected but they are few only. Rahul Bose and Kamal Haasan both have given nice performances but movie’s confusing way of storytelling leaves you frustrated.
                                           Also, in the end there was an expectation to reveal the suspense but again after connecting few sequences and the telling the reason behind that it quickly gives you the tag that the rest can be seen in Vishwaroop 2.In total Vishwaroop can be said an attempt by Kamal Hassan which tries to convey much more than audiences can understand.

Ratings- 2.5/5 Stars

Verdict- Above Average
