Munna Michael Review

Standard

Story line:

Michael (Ronit Roy) is a dancer inspired by Michael Jackson. One day Michael is fired from his job and told Michael Jackson has got its expiry date. On his way home, he finds a newly born baby crying on the side of the road. Michael adopts him and names him Munna (Tiger Shroff). Munna, just like Michael, grows up to be an extraordinary dancer and a diehard fan of Michael Jackson. Michael doesn’t want Munna to become a dancer and instead insists he do a proper job. But Munna still believes that Michael is forever and he wants to proove that. How he does that is plot of the movie.

Performances:

There are two stories running parallel and both have interesting plot. But when they meet each other the story weakness is shown. Performances are good. Tiger has given really good dance performances. Nidhhi Agerwal has played her part beautifully. But I am more than happy seeing Nawazuddin Siddiqui in gangster role again. Superb acting performance once again by him. Songs are good but in second half they are stretching the movie too much or can say breaking continuity of the movie.

My view:

As the dance sequence is based on Michael Jackson, if we compare the movie to step up series or other dance movies, these one has very average level. But if you check at Indian / Bollywood dance level, its good.

Spider-man Homecoming Review

Standard

Story line:

Following the Battle of New York, Adrian Toomes and his salvage company are contracted to clean up the city, but their operation is taken over by Tony Stark’s U.S. Department of Damage Control (D.O.D.C.). Enraged at being driven out of business, Toomes persuades his employees to keep the Chitauri technology they have already scavenged and use it to create and sell advanced weapons.

Eight years later, After civil war, Peter is trying to impress Stark by stoping Adrian and his gang. Will he be able to stop them? Will he be able to become a full Avenger? The answer to these questions is the plot of the movie.

Performances:

Spider-man going after popularity (or say to be Avenger) is something different than we saw in previous series. Story has its twist and turns. Performances are really good. Tom Holland has really made his impression different as spider-man. Again a powerful villain Michael Keaton, has put the movie to another level. action sequences are very good. Credit to director as he is successfully able to delete old spider-man image with the first part of this series.

My view:

What separates spider-man to other super hero was his goal to help people, his web and his courage & wisdom to overcome any villain. And guess what they took every one of these qualities throughout the movie. They replace it with total mechanism.  But may be these series will change peoples mindset of Spider-man.

Guest in London Review

Standard

Story line:

Aryan (Kartik Aryan) and Anaya (Kriti Kharbanda) lived in London and are getting married (fake marriage to get Aryan PR). And in that two guest  Chacha (Paresh Rawal) and Chachi (Tanvi Azmi) came to live in Aryan’s house. How their rest of days pass is the plot of the movie.

Performances:

When I saw the trailer this is just same as first part, but I was wrong. Second half has something extra for you and that is suspense and a mismatch love story. Performances are really good. Tanvi Azmi has performed really well with Paresh Rawal. Songs are ok. The director is able to send the messages directly to heart again and that is its biggest achievement.

My view:

I like the series as it let you understand the importance of elders in the house. The second half is better than first in this concept. But comedy element is very poor throughout the movie.

Baby Driver Review

Standard

Story line:

Baby is a young getaway driver in Atlanta, Georgia. When he was a child, a car accident killed his parents and left him with severe tinnitus, which he blocks out by listening to music. Baby works for Doc, a mastermind heist planner, to pay off a debt he incurred after stealing one of Doc’s cars. His life goes unbalanced when a heist goes wrong. How he balanced it again is the plot of the movie.

Performances:

A story may be inspired from transporter series, but having its own hero with its own abilities and weakness. Story writer has tried to make it different series. Performances are good. The story is two paced – A speed run on action sequences and very slow at rest. That looses the interest somewhere.

My view:

If you compare this with Transporter series, the action is lacking. but car ride sequences are giving equally competition. The other thing that lake is tension is not build continuous. But you will enjoy start and end of the movie.

Beauty and the Beast (2017) Review

Standard

Story line:

In Rococo-era France, an enchantress disguised as a beggar (Hattie Morahan) arrives at a ball and offers the host, a cold-hearted prince (Dan Stevens), a rose for shelter. When he refuses, she transforms him into a beast and his servants into household objects, and erases the castle from the memories of their loved ones. She casts a spell on the rose and warns the prince that the curse will never lift unless he learns to love another, and earn their love in return, before the last petal falls.

Years later, in the village of Villeneuve lives Belle (Emma Watson), an educated girl full of dreams with his father Maurice (Kevin Kline), a clock mechanic. One day while delivering a repair clock Maurice lost in the forest and accidentally reached in the Beast’s castle seeking refuge, but the Beast imprisons him for stealing a rose. Belle ventures out in search for him and finds him locked in the castle dungeon. The Beast agrees to let her take Maurice’s place. The castle servant try to pair up the beauty and the beast. but can love happen between them? Will Prince be able to learn true love? The answers to these questions are plot of the movie.

 

Performances:

The movie is based on 1991 Disney’s cartoon movie. The story and emotions through out the movie is same. All the characters have played a superb role. They make sure even in the digital world you fall for bed time story. The best part I see is cinematography. Its too good throughout the movie. Each and every scene is grand and tells story it self. Director has no hurry to finish the movie and that he achieved his goal with admirable ease.

My view:

The thing I like about Disney movie is their calmness and their approach to get you fall in love. It makes the movie experience to forget you time interval. come fall in love again..

Cars 3 Review

Standard

Story line:

Everything is going smoothly for Lighting McQueen till  a new generation of blazing-fast cars took over racing. In absence of the Fabulous Hudson Hornet, McQueen must find a way to get what he loves through Cruz Ramirez, a trainer for racing cars. How he does these is the plot of the movie.

My view:

Putting McQueen in the place where once Hudson was is something challenging. But story writter has done that very smoothly. The thing I like about these series is director puts each emotion they can to make you feel you are watching a non mechanic material. Feel attached with these emotional transformation of McQueen journey…

Transformers: The Last Knight Review

Standard

Story line:

Optimus Prime has left earth to fight his creator and Megatron gone hiding. Earth is in state of war between two races transformers & humans. While transformers keep coming to earth, the peace can be stored once again by going in to buried secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Only Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), Bumblebee and Viviane Wembly (Laura Haddock) can save the world. How they save it is the plot of the movie.

Performances:

Magic’s origin in world through transformers. An out of the box thought. But it is stretched too much in first half. And that makes story week. Performances are good. Bumblebee has played a really good role. Mark and Laura has played good chemistry. Director is not able to pace the movie as starting and second half are fully action packed and in full speed but rest of first half is very slow moving.

My view:

The movie is good. Action sequences are good. The only thing I don’t like is they have hidden everything on earth and this concept is chewed gum. They need to get something new.
