Dirty Politics Movie Trailer Review


Mallika Sherawat has been in limelight few years back because of her nudity in the films.Yet, honestly I didn't find anything extraordinary in this actor. She is coming back with her new film after few years of break. "Dirty Politics" trailer has been released about a week back. In my opinion the trailer was awful and I am not expecting any good from this film. Of-course you have Mallika so there would be some hot scenes in the movie. I personally think exposing is not enough to make a good film. Nowadays, Audiences have also become smart and they are choosy in spending money. They just doesn't want to waste their hard earned cash in watching some bold scenes.As it looks from the trailer "Dirty Politics" does has some story yet it seems regretful only.

This time we will have numerous actor and a bunch of them would be elder ones like Om Puri, Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah to name a few acting in this movie.The film is about a politicians and how their personal life comes in between their political life. Something similar happens with Om Puri's character in the movie. He sleeps with a girl played by Mallika Sherawat and she records the same in the tape.She also uses the same to blackmail him for a big amount of money. One thing which I felt was wrong with the film is the no of actors.Was it really necessary to take these many actors in a film.

It seems that the movie will revolve around a sex-tape, one or two item songs and a little more story. I didn't expect these many good actors to be a part of such film.If they serious wanted to do this film. They could have done some brainstorming to come up with some good idea of how to make this film better in many ways.The tentative release date of the movie is 13 Feb 2015. In my opinion "Dirty Politics" would not be a good choice to watch.

Foxcatcher Movie Review


Foxcatcher(R)

Length:- 2 hrs. 14 min.

Review
Foxcatcher is a biographical drama which revolves around life a world champion wrestler. It' s catches real life moments of a a poor, struggling yet talent boy. Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is a boy from average family who has been raised by his brother. John Eleuthère du Pont,(Steve Carell) is a rich tycoon who sees talent in Mark and spends on him more than required. Everything goes well by the support of John; Mark becomes a world champion with ease.Steve Carell looks is way too unique that he looks almost unrecognizable. His performance is so different that you feel that he has so much in his character. This comedy genre actor makes this serious role kind of touchable. 


There is something unique about this it doesn't have numerous characters. The story kind of revolves around almost three characters i.e. John, Mark and Dave. Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) is the elder brother of Mark. He is a former champion too but there is something wrong between Mark and Dave. What exactly is wrong there; this film may not be able to throw much light on the same.Surely, Mark Ruffalo does something extraordinary here. he brings a charm to his character by natural acting like you are watching him live. Initially hi role wasn't too long. As the differences comes between John and Mark he comes into the picture to make things work somehow.

This film might not show us some exotic locations yet it does have the excellent picturization and marvelous performances to bring an awesome movie as a product to us. Channing Tatum has of course played the central character. From a grown-ass boy to a winning loser, he makes this character lively and authentic. He makes us feel what's going on. These kind of movies solely rely on the performances and this actor trilogy makes something miraculous possible.Bennett Miller has made effort from Steve Carell looks and make-up to cinematography. He has made efforts in every aspect  to make this film better.


Verdict:-  Awesome

Penguins of Madagascar Movie Review


Penguins of Madagascar (PG)

Length:- 1 hr. 32 min.

Review
Penguins are usually found in Antarctica, a place covered with snow all over the year. This is where the story starts; few penguins start exploring the other world around. They enters United States that's where it gets exciting.There is an enemy out there Dr Bryan.The movie is more sort of a child affair. It's not sophisticated, complex and ambiguous. It's a straight forward story for the most part. It may not that great story but watching four penguins was fun.Their unity and unique etiquette and mannerism makes this simplistic movie little watchable.


Film also lacks a good animation techniques optimizer.Taking advantage of the animation cliche isn't something appreciable here.Once Penguins are protected by North Wind i.e. a small wing to protect some animals.They came to know that Dr is preparing for doomsday.Overall, the film remains boring and unentertaining. The special effects and the animation is unable to leave a mark. The penguins characters somehow leaves a mark but still they aren't impressive enough. Penguins explore many locations like Shanghai, parts of US, Madagascar  but sadly none of them were exotic or admiring."Penguins of Madagascar" could have been so much fun but it rather remains a forgettable experience. 

Villain is also a little unintentionally comic rather than being highly monstrous.He is also not powerful and sophisticated rather he is actually a giant and highly vulnerable. The message of goodness might also be not properly convey in "Penguins of Madagascar". All I enjoyed in the movie is the characters and their funny attitude. I should say that was the only comical part of the film. We don't have many funny moments in the movie which it was supposed to have.

Dolly Ki Doli Movie Trailer Review


Arbaaz Khan has started his filmmaking career from "Dabangg" before that he was an actor for most of his films. Although "Dabangg" was tremendously successful on the box-office yet it wasn't appreciated by the film critics. The main reason for the success of "Dabangg" was Salman Khan as told by Arbaaz himself in an award show.Arbaaz is coming up with his new film with Sonam Kapoor as a lead actor. "Dolly Ki Doli" trailer is being released few days back. honestly I didn't get a good feel about the film. Ofcourse, we have Sonam a young and talented actress yet it seems we have nothing really unique or new in the film.We might have seen many movies like this which has similar concept of someone stealing money by confessing a family or opposite sex.So, the plot of "Dolly Ki Doli" might not be that interesting.


We have Dolly (Sonam Kapoor) a rouge who traps male guys with her feminism.He gets married the guys after that every time she steals all the money from them. We saw so many movies like this Bollywood. So, this might not make us curious. Film is expected to be generic and conventional. Like in "Dabangg" movie this also an item number would be played by his wife Malaika Arora Khan. It looks from the trailer that there won't be any exposing from Sonam Kapoor. Also, the film would be focused on two cases or on two guys fooled by Dolly.It's being heard that Saif Ali Khan would also be seen in a special appearance. Performance oriented actor Rajkummar Rao would also be seen in a lead role. Yet there isn't anything which we can expect from him because the script  looks female dominating. Dolly would the central character and probably her character would have significant importance.

"Dolly Ki Doli" is expected to be released on 23rd Jan 2015.Pulkit Samrat would be playing a cop and it looks like he will be investigation the case of Dolly. Both the victims are expected to work together and find Dolly. Robin Singh (Pulkit Samrat) claims to crack this case in two months.What looks appreciable in the trailer is the costumes. There is good amount of work done on the costumes of Sonam Kapoor. She will be seen in different avatars in the film. I personally think that this film will not even that comical because of the monotonous genre. We saw somewhat similar stuff in the movie "Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl". In my opinion that film wasn't that good as well.

Verdict:- Average

Ratings:- 2 / 5 Stars

Roy Movie Trailer Review


No doubt Ranbir Kapoor is an extremely talented actor.He has acted mostly in the youth centric films. But it was little disappointing from his side as far as past few films are concerned. His last movie "Besharam" was kind of disaster on box-office.He will be seen in "Roy" after more than year's gap in a movie as a lead actor. "Roy" was already in  discussion yet nothing much was revealed about the movie.Recently it's trailer is released and it looks a little confusion. the length of the trailer is a little longer than usual. Ranbir Kapoor will be playing a thief while the other lead roles will be played by Arjun rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez. It's a multi-genre film i.e. it will have action, drama, suspense, thrills and action. The trailer is unique appreciation in some aspects but the overall look and feel of it is not that good. It's hard to understand and prediction what trailer is trying to convey.


"Roy" also gives us a feel that it's a kind of old film making. We see a lot of darkness in the movie i.e. most to scenes seems to be shot in night.In my opinion was it really necessary to shoot like this? Ranbir Kapoor looks are different than usual and as the trailer tells us he is the dynamic role. Arjun Rampal will be playing a filmmaker who seems to have a close observation about Roy's life. Jacqueline Fernandez will be seen in double role as "Roy" would be a love triangle she might be seen romancing both Arjun and Ranbir. I really like the background music of the film. The most lovable song to me is "Mujhse aaj muhje ko mila de". The dialogues are thought provoking and sensible

I must say that they should been have been significant improvement in the cinematography.The film looks like an old age affair because of the cinematography.The background music is fine for the most part. The film has been shot in foreign location i.e. Malaysia. I am not sure why type writer is shown in the movie while it's set in the current time.At one point of time it's shown that Roy is involved in the stealing of famous paintings. in myopnion as it's form the trailer "Roy" will not be highly entertaining film. rest can told only by watching the film.

PK Movie Review

PK (U/A)

Length:- 2 hrs. 33 min.

Review
Aamir Khan is back on big screen with his much awaited movie "PK". Aamir has usually made some serious movies in the recent years except for few. Again, he is back in his unusual and comic movie. "PK" somewhat looks similar to "Three Idiots" made by the same director Rajkumar Hirani for e.g. Aamir is again playing a mysterious guy. This time he is actually from different planet itself.Aamir's performance has depth in "PK". I should say a lot of work has been done by the entire team whether it's costume, make-up and overall look of every character.Firstly, we see PK (Aamir Khan) a guy wearing strange costumes just to look a little funny.Secondly, Anuskha Sharma has got some different makeup probably to justify her looks as a modern and charming youthful girl.Sanjay Dutt and Sushant Singh Rajput are good in short sequences. But the plot her is more focused on the character PK and Jagat Janini aka Jaggu (Anuskha Sharma).


Something lovely about this character PK is his innocence and something unique is his questions. PK is an alien landed to planet earth for research. He doesn't known anything about this planet which has given birth to lot many questions in his mind. He keeps on asking questions to everyone and based on the answers he gets. He makes his decision for what needs to do next from his side. This movie is also a social satire which target religions and question's the customs and traditions followed by the various different religions.It also raises questions on the various precautions and measures suggested by baba's etc.So, obviously the first social message from the film is stop investing in God and invest money on poor.Even, God will be happy with that. Secondly,Stop following the mad customs and traditions which has no basis.Some of them are actually kind of punishment rather than being favorable to someone's goodness.

Like in "Three Idiots" we had a principal who is called virus.This time we have a girl's father who is mad about what his religion and blinding following a baba named Tapaswi (Sourabh Shukla).Tapaswi is a negative character who claims that he can talk to god directly. He at one point of time is being challenged by PK just by his questions. It gets difficult for Tapaswi to answer all the questions asked by PK. The best scene of movie is when PK and Tapaswi are together in one show asking questions to each other. This was particularly an emotional scene which even reveals a mystery, the director has added thi scene to bring some charm in this movie.Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani both has come up with a film which brings comedy which actually might make some sense.


The fact cannot be denied that the film does have some problems. It may not be that enjoyable everytime but certainly the message conveyed through the film and questions raised on our society is something appreciable here. Although, I found somewhat similar stuff about the business built on the name of God was seen is the film "Oh My God".Yet I would say this film is entirely different even though they touch the same topic at some point of time.

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies Movie Review


The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies

Length:- 2 hrs. 24 min.

Review
"The Hobbit" is a movie  based on a novel by the same name. It takes you the journey of another world is fascinating. The only thing which bothers a bit is it's content because this is based on just one book. So, each movie would not be that much content enriched. In the third installment of "The Hobbit" we have fight for the most part, still the movie manages to be entertaining.Short sequence of fighting with shadows is which I found pretty good.Overall, the narrative was a little action oriented. How a king's ego comes in between his greed and his words? How he overcomes his greed was interesting? Peter Jackson is a lovely filmmaker who focuses on the presentation to make the film better.


The visual journey and unique characters makes this movie worth watching. The love between two characters for which male one even gives his life to save. The phenomenal love between them is sweet. Lots and lots of fighting against the giant and bad creature. It's captivating to see every single good heart  spirit fights with the evil creatures. How the fights takes a turn as the King and his followers join the same.In my opinion the whole Hobbit Trilogy was a little slow,I wish it could have been little faster since inception.So, we have story is the slower side yet the film manages to entertain you and give you an enjoyable experience.

The movie starts with a dragon burning almost the entire village. This finale absolutely justifies the title i.e. "The Battle of Five Armies".Peter Jackson tries to make this movie interesting enough but it's predict. The visuals are spectacular and there are moments which are breathtaking. After a while I thought this finale part is getting monotonous because of too much of fight. 


Verdict:- Good

Badlapur Movie Teaser Review



I am watching Varun Dhawan's movies since inception. honestly, I didn't like him much from "SOTY". But now when I saw the teaser of "Badlapur" I really liked his look and acting. "Badlapur" is of-course a revenge saga. Varun Dhawan will be seen as a guy who has been changed from good to bad. His motto behind the same is pure revenge. Probably of his wife/girlfriend or other family member's murder. The best part about the trailer is it shows the usual events in an unusual way. The camera work, dialogues, cinematography is realistic, unique and highly entertaining. Nawazuddin Siddiqui would be probably seen in the lead negative character role. Nawazuddin is a performance oriented actor and I am expecting something really good from his end.

Mostly action thriller movies have male dominating scripts. I am not sure how much credit and role significance the female actress will get in "Badlapur". Anyways the two gorgeous actress who will be seen in "Badlapur" are sexy Huma Qureshi and gorgeous Yami Gautam. Badlapur is actually is a place in Maharashtra which might have some connection with the movie. Also, Badla is a hindi word which means revenge.  Sriram Raghavan is a sort of director whose focus is there on spy, thriller, suspense and violent genre based movies. His last film"Agent Vinod" wasn't successful on box-office because of not so good reviews by film critics.

This movie may bring a much need boost in the career graph of Sriram Raghavan. Also,  this may actually bring a good addition of Varun Dhawan's career performance. "Badlapur" is expected to be released on 20th Feb 2015. In my opnion film may get an Adult certificate because of the violent crime scene. I must say that "Badlapur" is not a usual film. It's a unique movie which is expected to bring something positive and fantastic.The effort behind making this film better is clearly visible from it's teaser.Teaser is short and crisp, it gives us a feeling of satisfaction."Jee Karda" song which is played in the background music of the teaser is fascinating.


Verdict:- Pretty Good

Action Jackson Movie Review


Action Jackson

Length:- 2 hrs. 24 min.

Review
Few of the things are common in Bollywood action films like Hero can beats numerous guys in just few minutes with ease, Except hero all of the guys doesn't even possess minimum intellectual level, actress doesn't have much to do, there is a lot of drama before hero and villain will come face to face, numerous unnecessary songs. All of these things are true for "Action Jackson". The romantic indulgence or get together between Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha is really boring and feels unnecessarily stretched. Songs were literally way too much. By the time  song "Aaja Meri Gali" was played, I was thinking that how many more songs would be there in this film.



I am really disappointed with the kind of films Ajay Devgn has done in the recent few years. Most of them has show him as a guy with superpower.Also, the films were less realistic and won't make much sense.I am expecting this actor to do some creative and sensible cinema in the upcoming years.The only good thing about "Action Jackson" is their is some money spend on the sets to the action scenes better.Ajay Devgn is in the double role in this film. One strong than the other,of-course AJ is the stronger one.

Only three types of things happen in the movie.First is romance, secondly fighting and fighting and some fighting and lastly helping people for good reason.At some point of time I thought that,Is Ajay Devgn trying to copy Salman Khan. There were two dialogues which were refraised from Salman's previous films. First one "Na commitment na appointment only punishment" .Second one "Pasand aaya toh dil mein varna dimaag mein bhi nahi" which is modified version from a dialogue of "Kick".

Yami Gautam is a gorgeous actress but she has a very small role to play here. The main negative character named Xavier looks little unintentionally funny. "Action Jackson" is long and tiring to watch drama.

Verdict:- Below Average

Ratings:- 1.5 / 5 Stars

Nightcrawler Movie Review

Nightcrawler

Length:- 1 hr. 57 min.

Review
Every vagarboy is looking for a job, the one which is interesting enough.The one which can pay him enough. Nightcrawler is a story of one such vagarboy who turns into a freelancer videographer.  He buys a good quality camera and hire one guy in no time.You will quickly develop an interest in the film. As the boy succeeds in making money over the time, he even his greed increase drastically .It was fascinating how he makes stories even he makes things work which are not working out.He is particularly lonely,he loves what he does. The background music and the camera work is excellent in the film.The film takes a turn when Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) is offered a partnership from one of the similar profession guy. He denies the same and even his relationship with Nina Romina (Rene Russo) doesn't work out. Nina looks a bit aged then her character.



                                          

The movie is a  thriller presented in such a way that you never loose your interest in the same. The best part was the performance by Jake Gyllenhaal. Jake has put effort a lot more than usual to make this film extraordinary.Usually the thriller films rely on suspense but this one has a lot more than that. "Nightcrawler" is also shows how the media gets the suspicious video and make use of the same in their name. Riz Ahmed has played character who is kind of assistant to Louis.As movie proceeds towards the end it creates more curiosity.Less ambitious and more focused is what this film is.

Louis Bloom shots a story which will makes his career.It's about a murder although there isn't much revealed that what exactly has happened here? Ending shows the harsh reality of the brutal truth in a realistic way.


Verdict:- Pretty Good

Ratings:- 3 / 5 Stars

Before I go to Sleep Movie Review


Before I go to Sleep (R)

Length:- 1 hr. 32 min.

Review
There is female central character named Christine Lucas(Nicole Kidman) who forgets everything once she goes to sleep. Her each and every day starts like this she tries to recall what has happened till now? She gets some clues about the same by the help of Dr. Nasch (Mark Strong) and a video tape left recorded by herself.He came to known that she is 40 year and married.Her recorded video tapes helps her to proceed in understanding her self even though she forgets everything. Plot and premise is interesting but we don't see much progress is being made in the movie for a long time. Only good thing thing about the film is it keeps to on the edges to be curious about what's gonna happen next? Still is there is something missing, the film couldn't bring the charm it should have brought to its audiences. 

Honestly, I was expecting something much better from this film. Based on the bestselling novel "Before I go to Sleep" is unable to bring us what it should have brought. The best thing about the movie is Nicole Kidman. She brings a charm to her character with the required ambiguity and intelligence. After a while when Christina suspects that the man who claims to be her husband might not be the one. The suspense was almost over, I don't the film has much after that. I haven't read the novel so I am not sure closely the film follows the same. Yet there isn't anything much which is offered here.In my opinion the film was pretty boring for last half an hour.

I don't see much happening as far as the climax is concerned. Usually, in a suspense thriller films we see the something coming up till end. As far as revealing of suspense is associated. Starting of the movie was fine but literally it gets boring as soon as the plot gets settled. The characters also becomes convoluted in-front of the script. The climax is dragging and unentertaining. You can easily predict what's gonna happen next in the later half.


Verdict:- Average

Ratings:- 2 / 5 Stars
