Toilet – Ek Prem Katha Review

Story line:

Keshav (Akshay Kumar), owner of Radhe cycle store, met Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar), a modern educated girl and falls in love with her and eventually convinces her to marry him. But on the first day of their marriage Jaya discover that Keshav doesn’t have a toilet in his house. Keshav’s father Panditji (Sudhir Pandey) is an old cuulturer man and totally against having toilet in his house. Jaya has to face all kinds of trouble due to this. Ultimately she left keshav. Now its up to Keshav to fight against culture to get toilet in his house. How he does this is plot of the movie.

Performances:

There are two stories, first is inspired by true event and is based on toilet. Second is love story.  Writer has done excellent job to match this two in a power pack story. Movie has too good acting performances. Every one  has played their part so well. Music is very good to hear. “Has mat pagli” is soul of the movie. Credit to director as well as he is never afraid to go bold and show truth about current India.

My view:

Family comedy and a complete social awareness movie. Too good entertainment as well.

Jab Harry Met Sejal Review

Story line:

Harinder Singh Nehra (Shahrukh Khan) as Harry, a man who thinks he is womanizer, is a tour guide in Europe and a lost person seeking something but don’t exactly know what.  Harry met Sejal, a girl slightly immature, seeking her engagement ring that she has lost in her tour.  Harry has to help her to find it. And they start a journey together to find it. What they actually discover is the plot of the movie.

Performances:

A lost man met a girl and they went on trip and fall in love. Story is listened somewhere. This is basically road map for Imtiaz’s films and same goes here. But still movie has its power to capture you till last scene.

Performances are too good for me. Shahrukh as lost man, given his best. Wherever story needed love angle, his romance will fall you in love.  Anushka on the other end, played too cute, innocent. There is a dialogue “Cannot look at you with cheapness”.  And even she goes bold, she will look more cute. But when transformation comes, her mature role will also impress you. Aru Krishansh has very small role but his role also impress me. At some point his role pulls story up.

Special section for music too. 13 -14 songs and when you hear them in theater, you feel each transformation in characters. Even background music has played intense role throughout the movie. When ever dialogues are stopped, music has taken story to different level.

Cinematography is again a very good point of the movie.  Each scene from first to last, so beautiful. Beauty of Europe or boldness of characters is captured so perfectly.  All the scenes speak their own tails.

For the direction, Imtiaz seems to know exactly what & how much he need to put love & how much self realization. Perfect combination.

My view:

So what you will like, First half is totally comedy. Second half has too many songs. If you can feel them than you will get what you were seeking else you have happy ending. But you will enjoy this beautiful journey..

Mubarakan Review

Story line:

Karan and Charan (Arjun Kapoor) are twin brother brought up in two different environment London and Punjab. Karan’s parents decide to marry him to London’s rich family and their partner Akalpreet Sandhu’s (Rahul Dev) daughter Binkle (Athiya Shetty). But Karan already has girlfriend Sweety (Ileana D’Cruz) from past 2 years. So he put Charan at his place. But Charan has also a girlfriend, Nafisa (Neha Sharma) who is a Muslim and studying law. So three bride and two groom. What drama creates due to these is plot of the movie.

Performances:

We have seen twin brother lost and reunion movies but this is new angle to twin brother story. Story writer has given all room for actors to put this movie to a different level. But Performance is on average scale.  We have seen Arjun on both simple (two states, half girlfriend) and  free man with no responsibilities (Tevar). This one has offered him same. Same goes for Ileana and Neha. They looked beautiful and performed same demanding girlfriend role. The rest team. Anil kapoor or Rahul Dev or take anyone else, their overacting kill the remaining movie. The only thing you like is Music. Its is really good. The plot required it to be chaos and director has just leave it (may be intentionally).

My view:

The fun angle is died in the interval. The rest is story is predictable if you want to leave the movie in interval.
