Sex Tape Movie Trailer Review

Sex Tape is an upcoming romantic comedy film featuring Cameron Diaz & Jason Segel. Both Jason & Cameron are looking good and much fit in the trailer. Jason Segel has lost weight for this film, he is looking much slimmer. The story revolves around the couple who once agrees to film them while having sex. How that Sex Tape gets uploaded through a cloud and the couple struggles to get that Sex Tape back.

Sex Tape doesn’t seems to have much in terms of story. It does has some moments like the one in which Jason asks someone on phone that how to perform CPR on a dog. As clear from the name itself this film does target adult viewers and there gonna be some hot scenes. Sex Tape is releasing on July 25th 2014 in theaters in US.

One thing I didn’t like was Sex Tape is lacking originality in some way. I mean you have plot in which someone is searching for the way to shut down the cloud but what else gonna be there in the film. I hope many of you have seen films with more or less the same plot. I wander what’s new this film is gonna offer us?

In my opinion regular movie watchers won’t be much interested in Sex Tape. I really liked body language of Cameron Diaz in the trailer. She makes awesome moves particularly in the scene where she is standing wearing panty and top. She touches roof at that moment; that where Cameron is looking stunning. I personally feel that Cameron Diaz is good in playing adult comic roles like the one she played in Bad Teacher.

Overall, What I think is Sex Tape could be just ok kind of a film but if you’re choosy in watching films. Then I would recommend don’t go for this one.

Verdict: - Above Average

Ratings:-  2.5 / 5 Stars

Samrat & Co. Movie Review

Samrat & Co. (U/A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 5 min.

Samrat is about a smart detective by the same name. Samrat Tilak Dhari (STD) is shown way too intelligent, I mean how someone can tell autobiography of girl just by having a look at her. In my opinion that’s not the way intelligence of a person works out. Anyways this detective is looking for an interesting case which he can work on. He agrees for a case on a young girl named Dimpy Singh (Madalsa Sharma) request in an unexpected way.

Samrat & Co. is not entirely unwatchable film it delivers some thought provoking dialogues at regular intervals meanwhile it’s not a good film either. Main character i.e. detective whose job is to observe talks a way too much. One thing seems weird here i.e. other than detective everyone has low IQ. One dialogue liked was nights are the mother of all mysteries.

No. of characters here bothers me because there are too many of them. Possible reason for so many characters could be the mystery here belongs to a joint family. Here is one moe good one “ Jis par sabse jada shak ho uspe yakeen sabse jada karna chahiye”. Background music of the film is appreciable, plot does create some interest here. It’s not a bad experience to watch this film; once you get comfortable with the same.

 In the last half an hour the thrilling experience from the film almost gets vanished. Movie just keeps on going but some of the facts like every time the killer is killing one person or the other which becomes a bit repetitive and uninteresting. Unexpectedly there is a love track which is thankfully short and unnecessary. In the last moments it’s not hard to predict the climax.  Some part of the ending seems similar to Sherlock Holmes last movie casting Robert Downey Jr.

Verdict: - Could have been better in many ways

Revolver Rani Movie Review

Revolver Rani (A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 12 min.

Revolver Rani starts with a political touch story set somewhere in Madhya Pradesh. Within sometime the story seems to be convoluted. Revolver Rani Song in the beginning of the film justifies the title of the film. Usage of regional Hindi is present sometimes and the other it’s not. Possibly the actors haven’t practiced the regional Hindi spoken in Madhya Pradesh that’s why they are unable to do the justification to the same. Erotic scene looks weird and less realistic at some point of time. Fighting sequences are unintentionally funny; they actually are overstretched and dull.

Male lead here played by Vir das seems like a puppet most of time. Revolver has too many songs, in my opinion this is possibly the only film in the last few years which has more than 10 songs.  I totally agree with the fact that no one else in Bollywood could have played the female character named Alka Singh this well other than Kagana Ranaut. It’s a new trend in Bollywood to make film on the common man of a small town but that only is not nearly good enough, for a film to be entertaining and successful.

After the movie was done half way through, I had actually lost the interest in this film. This social political action drama is so sluggish and boring that you actually need a lot of patience to tolerate it. Main problem with this was that it needed some kind of refinement and strengthening its plot. What is being conveyed in the film doesn’t make much sense. Some of the witty line are funny but rest is just a crap. Overall, a boring film which doesn’t deserve your time.

Verdict: -  Average

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Movie Review

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (U/A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 16 min.

Captain America is a marvel comic superhero who in my opinion doesn’t possess in terms of super power in spite of being a superhero. Also, the villain in his films are complex and mysterious but doesn’t have much in terms of ability. Yet, Captain America 2 is a fully enjoyable film; there isn’t much in terms of plot here. The story is pretty straight forward, presentation of the film is what makes it interesting and extremely watchable. Steve Rogers/ Captain America is nicely played by Chris Evans. A blonde looking tuff guy who carries a shield with him all the time.

The story picks over somewhere after the Avengers has left in the last film. SHIELD seems to be compromised as a lot of guys working for them turns out to be bad ones. Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) –The director of SHIELD gets killed in an attack meanwhile Captain America has been accused for not sharing some kind of confidential information. He takes help from charming cum ruff and tuff Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson. Rest of the film is how Steve Rogers/ captain America proves his innocence and finds The Winter Soldier.

Captain America 2 doesn’t explore its full potential as per the plot is concerned. On the other hand it does has some awesome action sequences which are fully enjoyable.If you have seen the final trailer of the film, you can easily predict some of the scenes. The one in which Captain America fights in the lift or the one in which Captain America chases The Winter Soldier. Overall, I will highly suggest to watch this entertaining and full enjoyable film.

Verdict:- Nice One

2 States Movie Review

2 States (U/A)

Length: - 2hr. 29 min.

Two States tries to follow exactly the same as Chetan Bhagat’s novel but in my opinion it seems like rushing to follow the same. Background music is the best part of the film; music here actually creates feel good about the film. Love track between Alia and Arjun is good but still there is something missing in their chemistry onscreen. Here, the serious track in the film is obviously about the parents who doesn’t agree for the marriage initially believe the world is globalizing very fastly meanwhile there is a lot which actually differs in south and north Indian culture. Although the cultural barriers among the countries are either bridged are being enjoyed in most cases nowadays. Still there is no doubt that Indian is subdivided in many ways whether it be language, color or culture. This was the potential topic for this film and Chetan Bhagat’s novel both of which are based on Chetan Bhagat’s real life.

Male in this couple believe that “Bhaag jane mein izzat nahi hoti”. So both of them tries to convince their parents for the acceptance of the marriage. Slowly the efforts of the couple starts work after initial hard time. Slowly Krish (Arjun Kapoor) is able to win the heart of Ananya’s (Alia Bhatt) mother and father. “Pyaar se lekar shaadi tak ka rishta bahut lamba hota hai”this dialogue in the film justifies what mostly this film is all about. After Krish is able to impression Ananya’s parents its Ananya’s turn to do the same. This is where the film gets boring.

Alia Bhatt is getting better in her every film; in 2 States she has done kind of natural acting. Her charm and acting were both enjoyable. Arjun Kapoor is kind of serious character here, may be his character requires the same.2 states does creates an impression but mostly for the first half. Second half is not bad but becomes boring and little bit dragging. Overall, I would 2 states is not a bad film but yes it is a very good one either.

Verdict: - Watchable but fails to make an impression

Rating: - 2.5 / 5 Stars

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Movie Trailer Review

Spider-Man is considered to be the youngest and most cartoon character at current point of time. About two years ago a reboot of Spider-Man series by the name Amazing Spider-Man. Unlike other superheroes Spider-Man seems to be much more realistic personally to me. Possibly, that’s what makes him much more adorable. Sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man is releasing this year and its trailer is terrific. One of the reasons is its amazing visual effects, the action sequences which are being shot are much faster paced detailed which makes them even more enjoyable. If you have seen the trailer of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 you might have already thought even if I will watch one film in a year its gonna be this one.

Spider-Man is also one of the most successful superhero film franchise. People find Spider-Man close to their heart. Expectations from Spider-Man movies are obviously a way too higher than other films. This time the visual effects in this coming installment are almost at the peak. This time Spider-Man is supposed to be fighting with the Electro- a man having ability to control electricity also he looks like a source of the same. Spidy also seems to have trouble in his relationship with his old friend Harry Osborn which is neither surprising nor new. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is releasing on May 2nd 2014.

The Amazing Spider-man 2 is beautifully shot, in my opinion this film is most likely to have best visuals till date.  Some of the good dialogues from the film are “Every day I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make” & “You know what it is I love being Spider-Man –everything” .Romantic track here between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) & Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) in this part is also much more interesting than ever. The trailer of this film has crossed over 29 million views on YouTube in just few months. Final trailer of this film was released just few days back which is even more enjoyable, entertaining, and terrific in many ways.

Overall, I would personally recommend that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the movie which shall not be missed even if the film wouldn’t be able to fulfill your expectations than also it will deliver enough to make sure that you won’t feel like your money for this film’s ticket is wasted.

Verdict: -Hopefully highly entertaining and visually awesome film

Ratings: -3.5 / 5 Stars

Bhootnath Returns Movie Review

Bhootnath Returns (U)

Length: - 2 hrs. 41 min.

In the beginning it is being narrated that there are two types of Ghosts one is who being stuck on earth because of something they were not able to do when they were alive and second type are the ones who finish the task they were desperate to do. After which the second one goes to pavilion i.e. bhoot world. Kailash Nath (Amitabh Bachchan) enters the bhoot world as he is second type of ghost where he is allotted a token number to meet a big guy in order to request for his next birth. But everybody here laughs on him because he was unable to scare a child. So he goes back to earth under a special pact to try to scare some children. Plot here is interesting and keeps you engaging.

Mr. Bachchan is the soul person on whom this film relies and he is terrific. Kailash Nath aka Bhootnath tries to solve many interconnected problems. Many bhoot leaves haunted places after convinced by Bhootnath, many social issues are easy resolved. This film tries to convey a social message of goodness. Here is the flaw in the film a ghost stands in the election against a bad guy played by Boman Irani. Here is the justification for the same that there is no rule in the rule book that a ghost cannot stand for the election. In the second half this films does gets tedious, after the good first half something equally good was aspected from this film.

The election campaign and few unnecessary songs makes it a bit boring; that’s where the film loses track. To be frank I did not aspect this film to be good in the first half neither to be that a bit boring in the second half as it becomes. One negative point was the film requires to have somewhat different in terms in plot and storyline but it does gets unentertaining and boring. Although the film focuses on children and family because of which it certainly has some limitations for entertainment in certain way. Overall, I would say this film was one time watchable meanwhile not consistently good.

Verdict:-Watchable but not consistent
Ratings: - 2.5 / 5 Stars

Ek Villain Movie Teaser Review

Ek Villain is produced by Ekta Kapoor under her own production banner Balaji Productions. It has Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor & Ritesh Deshmukh playing lead role. Sidharth and Shraddha are couple in the film and their story take a turn when Sidharth is shown as a pycho. At this point of time it seems that Sidharth is the villain but afterwards someone calls e villain two times than Ritesh Deshmukh turns his face towards the camera. Ek villain is directed by Mohit Suri who recently directed box office successful film named Aashiqui 2. Tagline of the film Ek Villain is there is one in every love story which makes sense.

Teaser of Ek Villain is neither too short nor too long. EK Villain seems like a good thriller watch which can be enjoyable. Ek Villain is the third film for Sidharth Malhotra .Although there isn’t much revealed in the teaser about Ritesh Deshmukh’s character. Ritesh who is an old actor seems like playing a small role in this film. Ek Villain is supposed to be released 27th June 2014.

Daughter of Shakti Kapoor named Shraddha Kapoor has acted in just four film but she has proved her acting skills in such a short career. Ek Villain is supposed to be a romantic thriller hopefully is more about the love story of Sidharth and Shraddha meanwhile Ritesh is supposed to create some trouble. Also, Sidharth seems to have some mental problem. More details about the film will be revealed as the trailer of the film comes out. But as per the teaser is concerned Ek Villain seems like a watchable film.

Verdict:- Good

Ratings:-  3/ 5 Stars

The Xpose Movie Trailer Review

The Xpose film can be called as comeback film for Himesh Reshammiya as an actor. He is looking quite different in this film. The Xpose also as Yo Yo Honey Singh, Sonali Raut as a newly introduced actors. Yo Yo honey Singh who is famous for his singing is now starting his acting career from this film. The Xpose might be given adult certificate from the censor board because of the obvious reason Xpose. Trailer of the film is set somewhere in 60’s. Ravi Kumar is celebrity cum central character in the film played by Himesh Reshammiya.

Budget of this film is higher than the usual budget of the films with such actors. There is some kind of murder mystery in this film which is not elaborated much in the trailer. There are many other supporting actors in this film seems to be playing small roles like Ananth Mahadevan, Irfan Khan Etc. The trailer of this film got famous fastly, it has crossed over 2 million views on YouTube in just 2 days. The response is good because of some interesting moments in the trailer.

What I personally feel is that this film won’t be that decent watch as it seems to be. But, the audience’s response might be good. The Xpose also seems to be lacking a proper sequential flowchart; it just seems to be a collection of songs with little on track plot. The murder mystery is also not being elaborated much. Overall, the trailer has moments but this film won’t be watchable experience.

Verdict: - Average

Trailer Ratings:-  2 / 5 Stars

Main Tera Hero Movie Review

Main Tera Hero (U/A)

Length: - 2hrs. 14 min.

After watching first 5 minutes of Main Tera Hero you can understand how preposterous this film is gonna be. Seenu (Varun Dhawan) makes conversation with God in a tapori style; even god is being showing replying to him in a tapori style. This itself is an example that how absurd this film actually is. I never saw in a hero in a Hollywood who beats countless number of guys without possessing power of any kind. Of course, Bollywood movie of this kind has at least few of such scenes.

Varun Dhawan is unable to perform as per the lead role demand of the film. He seems to be overacting most of time. Nargis Fakhri has not given a much mature role to do something significant. Her character was required to do something important. The girl playing the role of Ileana D’Cruz friend looks much prettier than her. Post interval Main Tera Hero is so dump that you have to switch off your mind because there isn’t anything to understand here.

Anupam Kher who plays a big gangster of Africa residing in Bangkok. His character doesn’t even seems to even a little scary like a local gangster. Sourabh Shukla delivers some comic moments here which can be enjoyed. Filmmaker here seems to be running out of thoughts as the film is being over stretched a lot many times.

Verdict: - Strictly Average

Ratings: - 2/ 5 Stars
