Inside Out Movie Review

Inside Out (PG)

Length:- 1 hr 42 min.

Unlike the usual films "Inside Out" has some interesting stuff and concept. Every human has all sorts of elements whether it's joy, fear, anger and sadness inside their mind. They might be overdrawn by some or the other feeling. "Inside Out" is a story of a girl overwhelmed by her feelings to execute an action. For the most part it was an interesting journey to what happens inside her mind. The true message of the movie says life is not just about joy. It could be sad as well sometimes which isn't harmful. Even though it's an animated movie but still it's touching for all sorts of people.

Joy always bring happiness in our life while fear tries to control and avoid the possible kind of risks. Disney and Pixar are one of the finest animation film producers in the world. They makes movies which do make a difference. They makes films whose content is originally amazing. They usually come up  with creative and fascinating ideas. They are ones who set have set a trend of coming up with nice movies every Thanksgiving.

In some of the film including and especially in animated movies they show a short act which was a nice idea. However, I didn't find that idea working in this movie. There was a message in the beginning of the movie by the filmmaker which actually works here.The thought process shown inside human mind is engrossing , entertaining and fun to watch. Overall, Watching "Inside Out" is a really nice humorous experience.

Verdict:- Nice
Ratings:- 3. 5 / 5 Stars

Any Body Can Dance 2 Movie Review

Any Body Can Dance 2 (U)

Length:- 2 hrs. 27 min.

"Any Body Can Dance 2" is a sequel to the dance film by the same name which came few years ago.The previous part had some spark with somewhat ok kind of a story-line but this time there isn't much. We just have some dance numbers wrapped up with an unconvincing plot.I personally felt very bored watching this dance saga which is more sort of a stage show rather than being a film. Even the emotions, patriotism and the undying spirit to dance cannot create a magic.What made last movie a success was the India's first dance movie, which audience found something new to see in the movies. However in the previous part itself we saw a lot of dragging moments. Here, in this film we call dance as worship but for a movie like this. I felt these kind of dialogues are heavily drawn by emotions, which is a little unnecessary.

I felt like the budget of the movie was also too high in terms of the star cast and it's potential for being a success. Usually, Bollywood movies are set on a budget that can be easily recovered in the weekend nowadays if it's a giant success.But this one doesn't have very old actors of the Industry. Varun Dhawan and Ekta Kapoor are still considered as new youthful addition to Bollywood. No doubt Varun Dhawan did a good job in the movie.However he was lenient in the emotional scenes. I must say the overall expectations from this far higher than what it delivers.

Apart from dance I didn't see this movie going anywhere. Last time we had some involvement of Lauren Gottlieb as the plot makes progress but this time we hardly see anything for her to do in the film. We have a team of dancers Suresh (Varun Dhawan) and others who are called cheaters because they copied the choreography in a competition .Afterwards they try to take help from Vishnu (Prabhudeva) to  help them with an original choreography. Does that sounds an inspiration form Step Up -4? I feel like it was copied for some part as well.Overall, "ABCD 2" is a film that lacks creativity.

Verdict:- Average

Ratings:- 2 /5 Stars

Shahrukh-Kajol: Dilwale

Shahrukh Khan and Kajol's onscreen appearance is a nice combo. Even though they are opposite sex and not married to each other. Still they have a very good understanding of each other. Compatibility is on the higher side between them. I must say when I see them together on big screen it's hard for me to believe that they are not real life couple. Most actress have never really done much in their post marriage career. But Kajol is one of the few heroines who has appeared in few films in a frequent interval of few years. I remember " Fanna" was first movie after marriage and almost a decade have passed since "Fanna" was released.

 Shahrukh-Kajol next big screen upcoming movie is "Dilwale" whose poster has been released  recently. The poster of the film looks simply superb, it shows a couple entangled in a conversation with each other just like a modern couple in today's world. Globalization has completely changed Bollywood films in the past decade. We can see the impact of it in the poster of " Dilwale". It doesn't look like a traditional film poster. Even if someone from a western culture take a look at it. It might be hard for him/her to realize that's it's a non-English film's first look.

 Kajol have had keen interest in doing films with Shahrukh before her marriage with Ajay. Shahrukh has been for his romantic films in Bollywood. He makes every actresses comfortable working with her irrespective of her age difference for that matter.Rohit Shetty who has mostly made comedy films in his career will be directing this film. Apart from Shahrukh and Kajol Varun Dhawan, Johnny Lever , Boman Irani would be seen in the lead roles. "Dilwale" is scheduled to be released a week before Christmas i.e. 18th Dec 2015.I am in the hope of something interesting from this film.

Brothers Movie Trailer Review

"Brothers" is an upcoming action sports boxing movie which is about two brothers.This film is produced by Dharma Productions which is owned by Karan Johar. However, It's directed the Karan Malhotra who earlier directed movie named "Agneepath" which was a big commercial success. "Brothers" is assumed to be an official remake of the Hollywood movie of the genre named "Warrior".It's a story of two brothers who will be fighting against each others for the boxing championship. "Brothers" is supposed to be released on 14 th August 2015 which is just a day before Independence day. The budget of "Bothers" is really high which is 100 crore which obvious makes it a risky investment for  film.

The trailer of the movie is much anticipated all over and has received about a little less than 5 million views on YouTube within a week of it's release. I am sure that this movie deserves a shot to watch in the theaters as it looks from the trailer. this could be one of the biggest high budget movies of the year.Unlike "Bombay Velvet" this film is high expectancy to be a nice and engaging Akshay Kumar and Siddarth Malhotra will be playing the lead roles of the brothers in the movie who is finally gonna have a big final fight against each other. This is what it makes it interested that the boxing companionship final fight is between the brothers.As far the story is concerned.

Verdict:- Good

Katti Batti Movie Trailer Review

"Katti Batti" is an upcoming romantic comedy film staring Kagana Ranaut and Imran Khan. This combo will be seen first time on big screen. They both are looking good together in the film's trailer. Both of them are skinny with a bright brown skin texture which makes them a better combo than others.I am impressed with Kagana's performance in the past few film. She is getting better with every single movie. In Katti Batti's trailer also she is looking smart, feministic and charming. On the other hand Imran is not bad looking in the trailer. "Katti Batti" is supposed to be released on 8th September 2015 this year. I think this onscreen couple will be an elegant watch.

Nikhil Advani whose previous film "D-Day" was appreciated everywhere among audiences and critics. But unfortunately the film didn't made much on the box-office as compared to it's budget.In my opinion "Katti Batti" would be a better box-office success than D-Day. The cinematography of the film is really nice.Most of the scenes of the movie seems to be shot in nice and exotic locations.The dialogues are cheesy, youthful and comical.The dialogues are also sensible unlike other comic movies. Honestly, I didn't like the title of the movie. Although looks modern but the title seems a little regional and unconvincing.

The story of the movies revolves around a boy and a girl who starts living together just like  liven relationship.But after five years of liven relationship one day the girl Payal (Kagana) leaves the boy Maddy (Imran Khan) for no reason.Music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy is touching while the involvement of little Punjabi dialogues and songs adds favor to the film.The poster of the movie is really nice, which shows a girl and boy's legs touching each other. Overall, In my opinion this movie expected to be a good entertainer. 

Verdict:- Good

Ratings:- 3 / 5 Stars

Jurassic World Movie Review

Jurassic World (PG-13)

Length:- 2 hrs. 10 min

"Jurassic World" is a sci-fi movie is a sequel to Steven Spielberg's cult classic 1993 "Jurassic Park".I must say that this one has much resemblance in terms of story to that movie.Even the climax is way too similar to the previous movie. It feel like you are watching modified version of the previous film itself. The basic problem here is the plot which is convoluted. The Dinosaurs are not to impressive, they are shown just to add some thrilling moments to the film.Although this is not a unwatchable movie rather it's good enough to watch for a single time. It's a movie which never touches your heart to leave an impression.

Chris Patt acting is really appreciable here, he is the only one in this movie who keeps you at your toes.Rest of the actors doesn't leave a lasting impression.The cinematography is nice and some of the scenes are thrillingly shot in the movie to enhance viewers experience. What's missing in the dark side or scary part of the dinosaurs existence.We do see them as a threat but on the smaller scale. The starting of the film was way to boring unlike other movies of the same genre, which usually have a fascinating genre. I had a feeling that what exactly is going on here? After a while the movie picks up a little bit and makes progress.

One more big loophole of this movie is it doesn't give a feeling of larger than life story telling. It just gives you a couple of good thrilling and enjoyable shots but the overall film as a product remains generic for the most part."Jurassic World" doesn't have a new mystery plot and it's predictable.Overall, the movie is just an old affair wrapped up into new package with no new elements. 

Verdict:- Good

Ratings:- 3 / 5 Stars

Dil Dhadkane Do Movie Review

Dil Dhadkane Do (U/A)

Length:- 2 hrs. 49 min.

"Dil Dhadkane Do" is a movie about Mehra family and few other folks associated to them.It has association with the human thought in fact we are told the differences between man and animals in the beginning.It good to see how story in this film gets interesting we see parents takes control of their children's life, no matter how old they are? This is also one of the message this film wants to convey. It tells us how our life is effects by bad decisions.Zoya Akhtar is a director whose films have their own charm.May be at some point of time she may have her own set of audiences, which she deserves to have.This whole family melodrama even though is shot on just one cruise. It never really makes you feel that there is a necessity for a location.

What I like about Zoya's film that it has some deep involvement of thoughts.The real and actual life thought and those are the ones that makes narrative more interesting.The one think which I didn't really like much in the film is the no. of characters.There are so many of them and each one has their own story.So, As we move ahead we understand each one's desires and thoughts.How the family decisions becomes personal, social or professional decisions and effect our life? Family should be about the unity and combined efforts and decisions is soul message of the movie.

As far as acting is concerned Farhan doesn't get much to play in this film.Yet he is comprehensive and collective in the short part. Priyanka Chopra played a shy yet successful typical business woman in natural and dramatic way. Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma looks nice and cute together. Ranveer's acting skills shows a dramatic improvement in this movie.Anil Kapoor looks like perfect Indian father in his get up.Overall, It's a good family entertaining film. 

Verdict:- Pretty Good

Ratings:- 3 / 5 Stars

Bhajrangi Bhaijaan Movie Trailer Review

"Bhajrangi Bhajaan" is one of the most awaited Bollywood movies of this year. Still so far only the teaser of the film has been revealed which is short. The main trailer of the movie is yet to be revealed so that we can get a better idea of the film. Salman Khan usually does movie with less of a content and more of a fun or comical. He is also the producer for "Bhajrangi Bhaijaan" while Kabir Khan is the director for this movie. From the trailer it looks like the film is a story about a teenage girl who is probably mute. She is from Pakistan but gets lost in India then finally Pavan (Salman Khan) helps him to go back to her home.

 Kabir Khan is not old and experienced a filmmaking in the industry.However,Most of his films were well recognized in Bollywood. Almost all of Kabir Khan's films had some thoughtful plot yet the product as a movie was never a convincing experience. Salman and Kabir both Khan's were last time together in the film "Ek Tha Tiger". Probably that's how they got an acquaintance and now got together to make a film."Bhajrangi Bhajaan " is expected to be a big hit. Although I must say most of Salman's movie were not much appreciated by the film critics.
Kareena Kapoor would be playing the lead actress in the film. There was nothing more than just a glance of her in the film's teaser. Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be playing a supporting role in the movie. "Bhajarangi Bhaijaan" is supposed to be released on 17 July 2015 this year. Recently the first song of the film "Selfie Le Le Re" is released just two days back. It is well appreciated on YouTube while the teaser has got 1.5 million which is fairly less nowadays for a Bollywood. May be we are expected something marvelous from the full flash trailer.

Overall, The short teaser looks good and enjoyable. Although it could have better if it was slightly longer than what we have now. The movie sounds like fun from the teaser.
Verdict:- Good
Ratings:- 3 /5 Stars

Pitch Perfect 2 Movie Review

Pitch Perfect 2 (PG-13)

Length:- 1 hr. 55 min.

"Pitch Perfect 2" is a musical comedy drama which is sequel to "Pitch Perfect".Previous film was a adaptation of a book by the same name.There is ethically diverse group of singers who are already winner and performing for an event.Then something bad accidentally happens because of which they looses their already won crown achievement. Inspite of big success of the previous film the budget of this film is low.It's not entirely enjoyable and it does has flaws but it's doesn't disappoint. It could be called as watchable movie for the most part. We have emotionally enjoyable moments and comic scenes.Dialogues are cheesy yet not memorable."Pitch Perfect 2" is not so unpredictable.

 The dance  moves are mostly forgettable because the movie focuses more on singing.I thing which was wrong was this movie is it's not properly structured.This is why you can watch it from any where and you may not feel like I missed something.It throws a light on how the characters develop some sort of a relationship with each other.This is what makes them win rather then being the best among the group.There isn't much to appreciate here but still the movie manages to entertain us at-least a little bit.

Even though it could have been better in many ways yet it's not that bad. There are jokes and comments about Indians and Koreans in the finale of the singing competition. But still the comments about races are not offensive. They are actually fun fact. Amy is called fat more often yet she herself enjoys and never mind.I didn't saw the prequel so cannot compare this part with it. But, I heard that prequel was little better.

 "Pitch Perfect 2" has made a good money on box-office. It's one of the few films which has low budget but still achieve tremendous success on box office. Nowadays I see even the average films do really well in terms of business while the good ones are just awesome. In total "Pitch Perfect 2" is good for one time watch.

Verdict:- Ok for one time watch

Ratings:- 3/ 5 Stars
