Standard

Story line:

Will Arthur be able to do that? Who wants these men killed and why? the answers to these questions is the plot of the movie.

Performances:

The story is similar to transporter series except it has mechanic touch. Acting performances are very good. cinematography is excellent. Action sequences are very well directed and pictured.

My view;

The first half is bit slow due to the romance part but second half is full action packed. There are not much dialogues but the cinematography tells everything in movie.

A Flying Jatt Review

Standard

Story line:

Aman (Tiger Shroff) is a martial art teacher who is a scared jatt. Mr. Malhotra (Kay Kay Menon) is a money man who wants Aman’s land. So he send his killing machine Raka (Nathan Jones) to get the land. Aman tried to stop him and in an accident they both got super powers. Their lives changed when they got super powers. How they use their powers is the plot of the movie.

Performances:

The story is mostly inspired by first Indian television super hero Saktiman and Bollywood super hero krish. The lead role performances are mostly their repeat telecast i.e Tiger Shroff, Jacqueline Fernandez, Kay Kay Menon. But the real performances are given by supporting actors & villain. They lift the movie as far as they can. Music is a strong point in movie leading with “Toota Jo Kabhi Tara”.

My view:

If you survive first half hour somehow then you will enjoy movie. As far the action sequences goes, director needs to see baghi once more to make martial art teacher character alive.

Happy Bhag Jayegi Review

Standard

Storyline:

Happy’s (Diana Penty) marriage was confirmed with local corporater Daman Singh Bagga (Jimmy Shergill). But she loves Guddu (Ali Fazal). So before her wedding she and Guddu plan to run away and get married. But she by mistake get into another truck and reaches Pakistan. How will she be able to back in India? What will happen in Pakistan? Will she and Guddu able to get married? The answers to these questions are plot of the movie.

Performance:

There are some great india- pakistan love stories movies. But this one is slightly different as in this the Indians are naughty and Pakistani are silent type. Each and every character has fully lived their character and you can feel their emotions throughout the movie. Direction is able to get humor between the chaos and that is his biggest achievement.

My view:

India – Pakistan stories are really sensitive and the movie maker needs to be very careful that even in mistake they do not hurt any on side people. It is very well taken care. you will specially like Piyush Mishra and Diana Penty characters.

The Man Who Knew Infinity Review

Standard

Storyline:

Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) is an Indian mathematician who got knowledge from god. He wants to share this knowledge but as an Indian, no one believes him.What does it take to prove the impossible? is the plot of the movie.

Performances:

The Man Who Knew Infinity is a 2015 British biographical drama film based on the 1991 book of the same name by Robert Kanigel. Performances are very good. As an inpatient  Ramanujan, Dev Patel has played very good. The director is able to capture the journey from inpatient  Ramanujan to fellow Ramanujan.

My view:

Sometimes it is not easy to understand someone until you see the world from their end.There is no action nor any magic but still it holds you till end.

Suicide Squad Review

Standard

Storyline:

In the aftermath of Superman’s death, as depicted in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, intelligence operative Amanda Waller assembles Task Force X, a team of dangerous criminals—former psychiatrist Harley Quinn(Margot Robbie); elite hit man Deadshot (Will Smith); pyrokinetic ex-gangster El Diablo; opportunistic thief Captain Boomerang; monstrous cannibal Killer Croc; and specialized assassin Slipknot—at Belle Reve Penitentiary and places them under command of Colonel Rick Flag, to be used as disposable assets in high-risk missions for the United States government. Each member has a small bomb implanted in their neck, designed to detonate should any member rebel or try to escape.

One of Waller’s intended recruits is Flag’s girlfriend, Dr. June Moone, a former archaeologist who is possessed by a witch-goddess known as “Enchantress” after touching a cursed idol. Enchantress quickly turns on everyone, deciding to eradicate mankind for imprisoning her. She besieges Midway City with a horde of monsters, begins creating a weapon, and summons her brother Incubus to assist her. Waller then deploys the squad to a mission to save a person in the city. Who is this person? Will squad be able to complete the task? The answer to this question is plot of the movie.

Performances:

The intention of the writer was to server something different. And he is able to deliver it at very high level.  The performances of Margot and Will got more effectiveness due to the focus given to them but others are not that much effective. Enchantress is not able to create the effect of a villain who wants to destroy world which you can see in DC movie villains. The role of the joker is very short but effective. The director has added lots of action scenes but comparing to marvel they look very less effective.

My view:

When the intro is complete, 30% of the movie was over. The movie isn’t able to take off at any point. The joker lacks intensity played by Heath. Jokers emotion are something makes his role against. if you like the nonstop action and like DC characters, you will enjoy the movie.

Me Before You Review

Standard

Storyline:

Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker left paralyzed from an accident two years earlier. Young and quirky Louisa “Lou” Clark (Emilia Clarke) moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. Her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will. What is life of a paralyzed person? Will Lou be able to pass the test and be able to continue this job? What are the challenges for both? The answers to these questions are plot of the movie.

Performances:

Sometimes its hard to end something so good. Hats off to story writer that he was able to give end to such sweet story. There are twists and turns but a very steady pace for the story.

Performances are very good.The first time you see Emilia Clarke in the movie to the last scene you can only enjoy her beautiful performance. Sam Claflin had to play a tough role as there was only expression part for him in play. But he played his part perfectly.

There are some moments in the movie where you can see amazing cinematography. Looks like you were actually there. The director is able to express the power of love and value of each moment in life.  Very well done.

My view:

The smile on Lou’s face from first appearance, makes you forget every worry of your time. And that smile is the soul of the movie.You will find that both are selfish at their end yet both are fighting for each other. I disagree with the end, but sometimes its not happy ending for all.

Rustom Review

Standard

Story line

Commander Rustom Pavri (Akshay Kumar) and Cynthia Rustom Pavri (Ileana D’Cruz) are perfect couple until Rustom finds out Cynthia has an affair with his friends Vikram Makhija (Arjan Bajwa). In reaction, Rustom shot 3 bullets in heart of Vikram and surrenders. Was it just reaction or planned murder? Was Vikram really loved Cynthia or was just using her? Was Cynthia’s love for Rustom was a lie? The answers to these questions are the plot of the movie.

Performances:

Once again a strong story for Akshay Kumar. Superb acting performances lift the movie to a new peak. Not much songs but very good to hear leading by Tere sang yara.  Director has made the movie suspense till end. The intensity he brings in the movie is very well. Total credit to all the team.

My view:

The movie has a very steady pace and even though you knew that hero has murdered, but you want that somehow he is saved in court. Even though its a suspense movie a comic role played by Kumud Mishra who has played as a newspaper publisher, you will love it.

Tough to decide which movie to watch mohenjo or rustom as one makes you fall in love with history and second in real patriotism and true love. Both have the stars best performances.
