Transformers: Age of Extinction Movie Review

Transformers: Age of Extinction (U/A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 45 min.

Transformers have an interesting topic for the sci-fi movies but to convert such a great topic into a great film have always been tuff. I honestly didn’t find any of the Transformers movie that good. The fact cannot be denied that till now Transformers film series had delivered at least something meanwhile “Age of Extinction” is one of the most horrible movies ever made on transformers. It’s loud and long at the same time you will struggle to understand what is going on here? All the action drama seems to be gone in vain for this less plot oriented movie.

Some of the human scientists have found the metal from which the transformers can be made. They actually starts constructing them. The transformers they have constructed can be converted into anything and everything. They are giant weapons which can be controlled and mostly used to destroy the existing transformers including and especially the leader “Optimus Prime”. I really had hard time watching this movie as it is highly intolerable.

Awesome visual effects, massive sets, some good usage of locations all of it was worth only if plot could have been more sensible. In my opinion some of the locations where movie was shot like somewhere in China and Texas were not that good too. Story was the weak point of the film the execution also needed some improvement. The fact cannot be denied that the peculiar topic on which this movie wants to throw some light was interesting enough. All it needed was a lot of work on the execution on what needs to be shown.

Overall, In my opinion Transformers: Age of Extinction is really boring movie to watch. I would suggest not to go it.

Verdict: - Way too boring and loud

Ratings:- 1.5 / 5 Stars

Ek Villian Movie Review

Ek Villian(U/A)

Length:- 2 hrs. 9 min.

Ek Villian which is one of the most awaited movies of the year is finally released. Honestly, I wasn't expected something immaculate from this movie meanwhile certainly something different. Beginning of the movie was certainly good but after sometime it turns out to be a convoluted story. Excellent cinematography, awesome sings and good dialogues are the positive part of the film. Inspite of all these this film isn't that watchable and undeniably becomes boring after a while.

Number of songs does bother me here because many of the songs are thrown at you just like that. They doesn't take plot way too ahead. In fact after 45 minutes of the film , felt there won't be much here.The romance between Shraddha Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra is dragging.Plot if Ek Villian has some really good possibilities which has been utilized very little. Second half is just about chasing the Villian which was made clear in the very beginning. There are actually two parts of the film first is love of the Ek Villian and second is story of the Villian.

The Villian in this movie like others have got a motto to kill the women meanwhile Ek Villian has the mission to take revenge from Ek Villian. The Villian kills only rude women but unable to do anything for her rude wife. Ayesha (Shraddha Kapoor) tells a joke every time you might have already heard it does spoils the pleasure. This fight between two Villians is what this movie have for us.

In my opinion plot drags a lot although when it tends towards climax movie becomes interesting. Item song by Prachi Desai was the only thing which I found was appropriate song in the film. Plot should have had much more refined and structured content.

Verdict:- Not Good

Ratings:-  2 / 5 Stars

Amit Sahni Ki List Movie Trailer Review

Amit Sahni Ki List is a comedy film which relies on the situations and circumstances on the matter i.e. a boy finding a girl for marriage. Vir Das is an actor who either play supporting actor in most of the films or his lead films are kind of less popular. But still actor has managed to get at least few films every year with his fair enough acting skills, decent looks etc. In this film Vir Das will be playing a role of a boy named Amit Sahni. Amit Sahni is an investment banker the thing lagging from his life is a perfect girl which can be perfect for his marriage life. Amit Sahni decides to make a list of characteristics he is actually looking in a girl. Therefore, whenever he meets a new girl he actually tries to match the girl’s characters with list. Will Amit Sahni be able to find his perfect girl?

Dialogues of movie are a bit adult and youth oriented while the film seems to be youth centric and non-erotic. It’s surprisingly interesting that this film actually has a song name What the F**k (WTF). The background music of song WTF is fairly good. Amit Sahni mom is also an interesting character in this film. She is actually worried about Amit Sahni’s marriage as usually mom’s are. His mom also says some of the funny dialogues in the trailer. Amit Sahni ki List will be releasing on 18th July 2014.

Post preparation of the list with the help of his friend Amit Sahni actually starts looking around for the girl. He encounters some various kinds of girls during the same. This is where the film is looking interesting the trailer. Because of the lesser famous star cast the film’s trailer is not been well received among viewers. In my opinion this film is not going to be really good but it will definitely have some of the good comedy scenes in it.

Comedy and interesting dialogues is surely looking as a positive point in the films. In my opinion Amit Sahni Ki List will not be an entirely watchable film.

Verdict: - Above Average

Ratings: - 2.5 / 5 Stars

Hate Story 2 Movie Trailer Review

Hate Story 2 is a sequel to an erotic thriller Hate Story which came two years back. Although the Director and the star cast of the film is entire different from the prequel. Meanwhile the plot has some kind of similar other than that the genre of both the films is also erotic thriller. Vikram Bhatt is the producer of the film who has known for making unique kind of films in Bollywood. The prequel was made in a low budget and has easily recovered the money invested at that time. Hate Story 2 might have the similar budget level but audiences seems to be pretty interested in watching this film. The trailer of the film has been well appreciated among the viewers as it has touched 1 crore mark.

Hate Story 2 is obviously targeting adult viewers meanwhile the dialogues of the films are pretty good. The one liners seems to make sense with a solid punching impact. No doubt the adult content will be a way too higher than the prequel. A TV actress Surveen Chawla will be seen as a female lead in this film. This would be Surveen’s first movie as a lead actress in Bollywood. Jay Bhanushali who is also a TV actor will start his career by this movie. A well-known supporting actor Sushant Singh will be seen in a negative role. Sunny Leone is supposed to play an item in Hate Story 2.

No Doubt the trailer of Hate Story 2 offers something different yet it not full convincing.  The love story track might be a little dragging as more or less same as other Bollywood films. Rest of the plot seems to have something interesting which can make the film little watchable. Hate Story 2 will be releasing on 18th July 2014. I personally was glad after watching the trailer of the film at the same time I felt that it not going to be a great film. Undoubtly it will be better than prequel yet I think this film won’t be able to leave a lasting impression.  

Verdict:- Could have been better

Ratings:- 2.5 / 5 Stars

Perception (TV Series-English) Review

Perception is a crime drama TV Series which actually elaborates more on the mind functionality and other related aspects. Dr. Daniel Pierce and FBI agent Moretti tries to solve some of the complex crimes together with less or not easily understandable clues. Dr. Pierce usually gets some kind of hallucinations which actually guide him to solve the case. He also talks to his ex. Girlfriend and current friend Natalie to understand the crime. After solving numerous cases Dr. Pierce realizes that he was actually hallucinating Natalie and she exist and is a psychiatrist and stranger to her.

Every episode of perception gives an overview of something interesting related to the phenomena of mind’s thought process. Dr. Pierce gives an overview of a new concept in the form of lecture and concludes it at the end of the episode. The way Dr. and FBI agent solves is pretty interesting. Currently, Perception is executing its. The pace of this TV series is steady it never slows down. Third Season meanwhile in my opinion the best episodes till date was episode 9th and 10th from Season 1. These two episodes combined focus on the same case and there is a way too much which is being revealed about Dr. Pierce.

Perception can be good watchable experience if you like crime solving TV series or related stuff. It can also be helpful in improving the thought process. If you haven’t watched many English TV Series then this could be a good one for beginners. It can be called as psychological thought process oriented crime solving thriller drama. Although, Perception is not a very popular TV Series but still it’s a good watchable drama. Like the obvious crime thriller drama sometimes Dr. Pierce and Agent Moretti has to go out of the way to make things work out to in order to solve the crime. Not only a decent time pass drama but something which will make sense as well.

Verdict:- Good

Ratings:- 6.5 / 10

Humshakals Movie Review

Humshakals (U/A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 35 min.

Humshakals is an unfunny and a kind of film which won’t make much sense. I honestly couldn’t understand what Saif Ali Khan and other actors have found in this film as an actor. I honestly couldn’t understand what Sajid Khan wants to convey in his movies. If the films were made only to entertainment, it is pretty clear that audience are not liking his films. After a big flop Himmatwala this film seems like a sequel to Himmatwala. Because it’s pretty boring, unentertaining and less sensible. Saif Ali Khan and Riteish Deshmukh are just like a prop. They are not allowed to do something by their own meanwhile seems like they actually don’t know what they are doing will work on not?

Sajid Khan repeated Tamannaah Bhatia in Humshakals after Himmatwala. Like the previous film Tamannaah is looking charming but don’t actually know what she has to do in the film. How can someone acts like a dog is really hard to believe and there is more like this “Cocaine ke Parathe”and “Vodka ke Parathe”.Actress usually doesn’t get much chance in Sajid Khan’s films. What I mean is actress just exit in his films or maybe they will get few bikini scenes. Most of the characters in Humshakals doesn’t even have an intelligence level like morons. How are these things possible in real life? Films should as real as possible meanwhile this one is not even close to reality.

All the three actress (Tamannaah, Bipasha and Esha) are looking hot and sexy in most of scenes. Esha Gupta recently said that actresses are for glamour in Sajid Khan’s films which is quiet true. Most of the songs are absurd and seems to be inserted forcefully in the film. There isn’t any doubt that this film is way too boring. In total, I would suggest to stay away from this film.

Verdict: - Highly absurd and boring

Ratings:- 0/ 5 Stars

Fugly Movie Review

Fugly (U/A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 15 min.

Fugly is a film which tries to stabilize its base to patriotism, women empowerment and/ or protection of women. In my opinion it’s really to the touch it could have had, it goes round and round. The film is actually circumlocution of certain events like a corrupt cop trying to blackmail and steal a lot of money from young kids. The safety and security of girls in the public places and the people opinion about something which they never even saw. Honestly, I missed in between that where this film actually wants to go. The plot doesn’t properly connect and the way it should.

A corrupt cop entry after about 40 minutes of film run-time does create some interest but that the only thing in the whole film which is good. Sometimes I actually got a Dejavu of real life preposterous activities which is really wrong. The film should have a solid script which should properly define where this film has started, where it want to go and where it will actually go. This should be conveyed in a predicted way with some surprising way. Also, a film should give a satisfaction while watching. All these things I didn’t really find in this film.

Jimmy Shergill is a really good actor, undoubtly in Fugly he is way too good. He plays the character which the correct level of confidence and attitude as per the requirement. If the normal day to day events could have been more properly conveyed that it could have made more sense. Climax of Fugly might have some similarities with Rang De Basanti. There is a lot here which is similar to other films. Fugly is an unwatchable film meanwhile it doesn’t works well that’s the actual problem. In total I would say is an entertaining film.

Verdict: -  Below Average

Kick Movie Trailer Review

Salman Khan has been well known for his unique fan followers i.e. the single screen viewers and numerous Muslim fans. Doesn’t matter whether Salman Khan’s movie has good content or may get a nice critical acclamation or not. His movies has certainly worked really well on box office. He is tuff looking meanwhile humble and soft-spoken actor who has created numerous records in terms of box office collections. Here, is his new film Kick releasing on a much favorable occasion Eid. It’s been just a day since the trailer of Kick has been released and it has easily crossed 3.5 million views on YouTube.

In my opinion Kick can easily make 200 crore on box-office. What is the big question that would be able to set a mark for Bollywood box-office collections? Obvious reasons for the film’s higher success rate is of course Salman Khan, beautifully shot stunts, nice cinematography and somewhat work on the plot. Supporting star cast of Kick is also nice, it has an actress well known for her fitness – Jacqueline Fernandez and two well-known performance oriented Bollywood actors – Randeep Hooda & Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

Kick is being shot in three countries namely Scotland, India and South Korea. Most of the good action sequences seems to be shot abroad which will enhance the viewer’s experience of watching the film. The songs of Kick were composed and sung by Himesh Reshammiya & Yo Yo honey Singh. Kick is a remake of hit Telugu film by the same name. Kick will be releasing on 25th July 2014 in India & abroad.

Devil (Salman Khan) is a rogue who has been chased by a cop named Himanshu (Randeep Hooda) from a really long time. Himanshu seems still interested in chasing Devil. Devil’s love affair is Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez). Devil & Shaina falls in love at first sight meanwhile a big rogue played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui wants to meet Devil because he is getting even more famous then him.

Salman Khan has changed his looks numerous times in the film as per demand of the character. He is looking equally good in every appearance. Jacqueline Fernandez appearance in Kick is pretty good. She is looking damn hot and gorgeous. The stunts of Kick are finely shot meanwhile the plot seems interesting as well. Overall, in my opinion Kick would be an enjoyable & entertaining experience with some masala and/ or comedy ingredients.

Verdict: - Good

How To Train Your Dragon 2 Movie Review

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (U/A)

Length: - 1 hr. 42 min.

How to Train Your Dragon (HTTYD) 2 is a sequel to the film which few years back by the same name. The film takes the story forward from where it has left in the last part. The distinguish part of the animated films from the usual ones is that they might not be that thrilling. They may be considerable mostly for the children but this movie has some good content for the adults as well. I thoroughly enjoyed HTTYD 2 which unfolds the story few times. Every Dragon has its own secrets meanwhile they are also controlled by a gigantic controller. No one can deny the command of controller and the controller is being commanded by a bad ruff guy. How the Dragons can challenge their controllers? How a bunch of good hearted people turns everything in their favor?

The animation work is so good that you can actually fall in love with it. Every character has its own short story which is lovely. This film shows how a simplistic and predictable plot can be turned into sometime really good. In this part we are introduced to a mother who scarified her love towards son meanwhile devotes her life to rescue Dragons. How her son and husband reacts after seeing her after a really long time is interesting. What's different in the Dragons here is many of them are cute ones. Unlike the ones we already are aware of i.e. gigantic, massive and monstrous ones.

In my opinion HTTYD is a complete family drama with nice ingredients. This sequel gets clever and smarter than its predecessor. DreamWorks has completed 20 years in cinema and they are just getting better. Dragon are shows as a friend, trainable and adorable creatures. Some Dragons also has mysterious powers even though film is predictable it's still enjoyable. Overall, I highly recommended to watch How to Train Your Dragon to enjoy your day.

Verdict: -  Good

Ek Villain Movie Trailer Review

Ek Villain is an upcoming Bollywood romantic thriller film.Ek Villain is a bit different from other romantic films in a way that it’s a love story of a villain not a hero. The storyline looks fresh from the film’s trailer.Shraddha Kapoor is looking pretty charming in the trailer. She has already proved her acting skills from recent films. In this film she is bubbly, feministic and adorable. In my opinion she couldn’t be better than this. Ek Villain’s other starcast includes Riteish Deshmukh & Sidharth Malhotra. Although it’s hard to guess that who is the actual villain between Sidharth & Riteish? Mohit Suri who recently directed Aashiqui 2 which turns out to be a big hit. He seems to be doing a good job in this film as well.

Shraddha Kapoor is considered to be a bigger reason for the success of Aashiqui 2. This has raised the obvious expectations from her in this film. Tagline of Ek Villain “There is one in every love story” is pretty good. Sidharth Malhotra’s character might have some psychological problems in the movie as it looks in the trailer.Also, the story has something to do with the brutal killing of girls. Ek Villain will be releasing on 27th June 2014.

The songs of the movie are pretty good. Music has already been well received by audiences. Although its not yet as famous as Aashiqui 2. but it's expected to be in near future.Dialogues of Ek Villain are a bit philosophical or thought process oriented which is not bad.Romance of Shraddha Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra will form the initial plot of the film. In my opinion Ek Villain could be given a shot for one time watch. Although, the final decision of the film being good or bad will be made only after watching it.

Verdict:-  Good

Edge of Tomorrow Movie Review

Edge of Tomorrow (U/A)

Length: - 1 hr. 53 min.

Edge of Tomorrow is a film from which I wasn’t expecting much but after few minutes itself I realized how good this film is gonna be. It is one of those sci-fi movie which utilizes its full potential. One of the sci-fi movie which utilizes its full potential. Action scenes are closely shot which makes them very realistic, watchable and enjoyable. William Cage (Tom Cruise) realizes pretty soon that he is stuck within a small time frame and he understands things in a much better way.

Interesting thing is William Cage is the only one who remembers it even after death that what has happened and what's gonna happen. Does it seems a bit similar to source code, well the truth is it’s not exactly the same. Even William Cage is stuck in a time frame but still the actual movie moves ahead. The truth cannot be neglected that time frame does limit the plot to a certain level. There isn’t any doubt that the film is crisp and compelling.

Emily blunt has played her part in a very confident and comfortable way. Tom Cruise is way too good; he utilizes his experience in correct direction and correction proportion. He not only acts naturally but is in comfortable in understanding the demand of role. The battle shown in the film is definitely targeting action lovers. If you don’t like watching action films this may not the one.

William Cage does gets smarter after every time he dies whether it’s in terms of fighting or taking actions. The fight with the alien machines reminds of The Matrix Trilogy. Although this whole film is a Dejavu of many Hollywood films like Matrix, Source code etc. but still it is a unique film in itself. Overall, I would recommend to watch Edge of Tomorrow, it could be a good  if experience you are a Tom Cruise and action movie fan.

Verdict: - Pretty Good

Holiday Movie Review

Holiday film is a story of an army officer named Virat (Akshay Kumar). Obviously the film is based on his love and professional life. For the first half film is pretty much similar to normal Bollywood masala films. Govinda is in a special appearance initially for a minute then afterwards he has some part to play. Actually, I was expecting him to come up as something significant in the end but that didn’t actually happens. In my opinion the background music of the film was fine.

 Romance between Virat and Saiba (Sonakshi Sinha) is a little stretched and is present in the film at regular intervals. Certainly the romance is little annoying when it comes in between of the main track of the story. Virat’s professional life execution is interesting. Holiday becomes very watchable as it proceeds towards the professional life of Virat. He actually tries to track the links for an intentional bomb blast. How he does that is kept a secret initially and slowly  being disclosed?

Tamil filmmaker A.R. Murugadoss who has made Ghajini sometime back is unable to create the magic once again. Holiday is his second Hindi movie which is again remake of Tamil film “Thupakki". I haven’t seen "Thupakki" so I am not sure how similar Holiday and Thupakki are. But in my opinion holiday is neither a good film nor a boring affair.

Usually Bollywood suspense thriller movies promise way too much and delivers every little. Holiday is a bit different from them. It does deliver what it promised probably a bit more than that. Still it not entirely conceiving meanwhile it does has some moments. What’s missing in this movie is the something special which could have made it much better from the other film. Sonakshi Sinha has got just romantic scenes but apart from that she is just like a prop. Climax is certainly stretched, it also becomes boring after a point of time.  

Verdict: - Above Average

Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania Movie Trailer Review

Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (HSKD) is an upcoming romantic comedy film produced under Dharma Production. In the last few years Dharma Productions have concentrated in produced and directing mostly romantic comedy films or youth centric ones. What has changed in Dharma Production films is that they have become somewhat stereotyped. The films produced by them are not as watchable they used to be sometime back. All this seems to be true for the movie Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania i.e. it’s doesn’t look interesting. Other some youth centric jokes, nice costumes and youthful life experience there isn’t anything. In my opinion a film should have at least a problem statement and if possible a message which can be conveyed by the end of the film.

HSKD has Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt as the main lead of the film. Alia Bhatt has come up as a really good actor in just few films meanwhile Varun Dhawan has also improved his acting with time. Both Alia and Varun has started their career with Student of the Year produced by Dharma Productions only. SOTY was a great hit but I think HSKD won’t be able to repeat the history. The story of the HSKD looks like convoluted. We have seen so many films in the Bollywood with a quiet similar plot. What I liked in the trailer was the chemistry between Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan.

In the some of the scenes Alia Bhatt is looking bubbly, charming and sexy at the same time. Varun Dhawan also looks funny sometimes as per the demand of the character. Background music of the film also seems like working fine as per the tune of the film. Humpty Sharma probably falls in love with Kavya but she is getting married to some Indian NRI guy. I think that how the climax of will works is how Humpty will get Kavya? Overall, in my opinion HSKD will be just an average watch.

Verdict:- Average

Ratings: - 2 / 5 Stars
