Standard

You ca feel each expression beauty and in my term it is collaborate beauty. The support has offered same intensity in the movie too.

Naam Shabana Review

Standard

Story line:

Shabana Khan (Taapsee Pannu) is a college student who also learns Kudo. Jai (Taher Shabbir Mithaiwala) is his driver / friend who secretly loves her. But their life took a turn when the two of them return from dinner date on Jai’s birthday. While on their bike ride home, Shabana faces eve teasing from a group of four drunk men in a jeep, which turns into a physical fight resulting Jai getting killed. Shabana waits for justice from law but it was not done.  But she gets a chance to get her revenge through national defense security agency. how she gets this change? How she takes the revenge and what national defense security agency wants from her is the plot of the movie.

Performances:

The story is written centering emotion. It is obvious the comparison will be there with baby, which was written centering patriotism. Its good to see it as for change. Performances are good. Akshay Kumar’s presence takes the movie to its peak but once he is not there, the movie looses its peak. Prithviraj Sukumaran is not able to justify the villain except his body power. Music is filling the emotion in the movie. The movie has higher expectation after Baby, but director has offered something different and it may not be appreciated. But I will give credit the director for this change.

My view:

The difference between baby and this movie is that this one has personal touch and that is required for Shabana to join the agency. The movie is action packed. Only thing I miss is the details in some places like in karate final stage fight scene.

Phillauri Review

Standard

Story line:

Kanan (Suraj Sharma) returns to India from Canada to marry his long-term girlfriend Anu (Mehreen Pirzada), but comes to know that as he is a manglik (born under an unlucky star). He has to get married to a tree before getting married to her. He marries the tree, which is cut down after the marriage. As a result, from that day onward he is haunted by the spirit of a woman named Shashi (Anushka Sharma), who lived in that particular tree and hence claims to now be ‘married’ to him.  Why was Shashi became a spirit? what is her story? will she be find piece? Will Karan be able to marry Anu? The answer to the question is plot of the movie.

Performances:

The story is simple to explain. But to make it drama, pure director effort was needed. Performances are good. The 19 century time is captured very beautifully. The difference of the generation is also displayed very delicately. But what I am more impressed is the purity of music, that made you listen Dum Dum and Sahiba again and again. Director has tried his best to put balance between humor and a very sensitive love story.

My view:

Starting & ending is bit slow but if you can bear it the movie is total interesting. I am sure on this we need to understand that if you cut trees then mangal may or not be in your kundali but oxigen will definitely  not in the future.

Performances:

Story is written very well in terms of the prequel “Humpty sharma ki dulhaniya”. Something original with lots of drama and too good twists. Varun and Alia have perfect chemistry. The support is very powerful by all characters. Music is awesome. title track to humsafar all songs directly touch the heart. Too good direction as well. Keeping the message with total entertainment is something very hard, but was achieved in this movie.

My view:

One more entertaining movie from Varun and Alia. Credit to director as well for not loosing the balance between his message of dowry system, woman independence and love story.
