KAUN KITNE PAANI MAI

KAUN KITNE PAANI MAI
My take is an 3 star 🌟 🌟🌟
Digging on a matter like water crisis drives a story of a village which still follows caste system , untouchbality and create distinction between the villagers and finally bifurcates and fragments the village into 2 parts smile emoticon watch It for the performances , though a shabby title its a one time watch... tongue emoticonwatch it for the story it portrays with a message and doses of humour ,watch it for its unique narrative and finally for the typical climax in Bollywood style happy ending . smile emoticon
STORY & SCREENPLAY
The story revolves around a village which follows caste system and divides the people residing in the village smile emoticon . The screen play goes In flow delivering punches of humour,fun and a few matter that digs instances of Issues in the village and finally ends typically though but delivers a great message . The story as i mentioned is about a village that gets fragmented and divided with a border wall as its boundary and this division is done as per caste but then after years of division the upper part of the village faces water crisis and their wealth just gets exhausted leaving them with no option then selling the village but no 1 agrees to buy the village as there is no water and finally the kings son ie the prince takes on responsibility of solving this issue he goes with a Selfish motive to the lower part of the village but falls in love with the king of the lower part of the village and finally their reunion gets the village together and they forget all the barriers like caste grade and decide to be one and help.each other . But how does this happen ?? gasp emoticon Is all ul get to know when u watch the nearest cinema hall like emoticon
PERFORMANCES
Saurabh shukla as the king has been pretty good at points his character comes out to be loud but he finally convinced you with his character .Radhika apte Has been graceful with her beautiful smile tongue emoticon and acting all through out the movie smile emoticon
FINAL VERDICT
Its a one time watch at theatres like emoticon , though a little shabby kind of title for the movie 🎥. Don't go by the title watch it for the beautiful message and for the performances grin emoticon .

PHANTOM

PHANTOM 
A Story you wish were true 
My take a patriotic 3.7 star 🌟 🌟🌟.7 
This story that touches the realm of patriotism and emotion by portraying a fictionally calculated justice that could have been given for those 166 people who died in 26/11 attacks and after watching this believe me you will feel this story could have Been true . The climax is touching and leaves u with a salute . After Bhajrangi bhaijaan director kabir khan is back with this story which takes u back to that deadly day in the history of mumbai.I would not say its the best but its definitely not disappointing. Watch it ,its worth all the penny you pay 

STORY & SCREENPLAY 
The story is a fictional justice story written with a motive of explaining how justice could have been given to those innocent people who lost their lives , to those families who last their father ,mother or a child and to the nation who lost their soilders . The screenplay transits well but what brings down the cinematic appeal is the bad editing of the film and its scenes . The narration goes well and the scenes , the logic convinces you and equal no of twists follow up to create a kind of curiosity at times in the film specially in the 2nd half . The story is about a expelled army man who is sent on a secret mission which is even secret to the superiors of the country ,the mission is of getting justice to the innocent victims of 26/11 and giving a shoot and straight answer and a lesson to those who were responsible for these attacks and are still living their lives peacefully . So he goes on this mission to get back his respect that he lost after being expelled from the army . They plan the mast stroke game and strategy to execute it . And finally what happens at the end ie the climax and the execution of every plan just will leave u impressed . 

PERFORMANCES 

After a long time saif ali khan on the celluloid in a different role and his performance has been average the spark in the character seems a bit dull , apart from this Katrina as always not much expectation its just Katrina kaif presence in the film . 

FINAL VERDICT 
Its a worth watch at theatres , though fictional story but it convinces you and gets u high on patriotic spirit and touches you heart at the climax . Some scenes in the film take you in a flash back of 26/11 . Watch it for this is one of those stories you would hope to be real. For all my reviews visit http://yoreviews.blogspot.in

ALL IS WELL

ALL IS WELL 
The story of a dysfunctional family 👪 comes out more as a dysfunctional film as an whole 
My take 2.3 star 🌟 🌟1/3 
TIME PASS FILM 
Loud movie with a lot of insensible scenes but theme and plot is quite good , still fails to impress because of a complete Hodge podge and mess created in the movie . The message portrayed @ the end is impressive . 

STORY & SCREENPLAY 

The story and plot is perfect dose of family film with some tadka but the narrative screenplay goes irritating at points with few unnecessary scenes . In the verge we also hav some comedy scenes to make u laugh , some emotion and mellow drama for the family audience and finally not so good dialogues . 
The story is about a dysfunctional family and a messed up relationship between asin and Abhishek in the film ,the family comes together after a long many years and face each other , argue with each other then slowly they start realizing the real inside story behind things that have happened long many years ago and that's when the family unites like never before , all the broken relationships rebadge and transform to be stronger and they stand for each other at hard times leaving behind a message "The only way to solve problems is to face them " Interval in the movie comes with a note all is not well and finally at the climax the movie ends with a note all is well . 

PERFOMANCES 
Abhishek bacchan has been quite good with his role as a son but as a rock star character he fails to bring that energy and visual appeal in his character . Coming to rishi Kapoor he has been impressive in his role as a father but he didn't have anything exceptional to do it was just a simple role and the same follows for asin. The negative role Mohammed zeeshan has been hilarious with his Humour and his charcter is the centre of fun all throughout . 

FINAL VERDICT 

Not a worth watch at theatres , a movie to skip instead watch for other alternatives this weekend . Not more than a time pass watch .

MANJHI -THE MOUNTAIN MAN

MANJHI -THE MOUNTAIN MAN
THE BEST FILM SO FAR IN 2015
My take is a INSPIRING , SHANDAAR ,JABARDAST, JINDABAAD
4.8 star 🌟🌟🌟🌟1/8 Rating
"MANJHI D MOUNTAIN MAN "IS THE NEXT AND THE BEST REAL LIFE SUPER HERO OF INDIA smile emoticon
Undying Rock hard spirit wink emoticon , unconditional & eternal love, Commitment smile emoticon & the courage to be unbreakable is what defines this film and the real hero of this film DASHRATH MANJHI like emoticon . 2 hours and 10 mins of this film inspires you with its story , touches ur heart with the emotion and love behind the story like never before , and finally the climax leaves u with GOOSE BUMPS literally and in this verge the cast of this film makes u feel the reality with their performances , specially NAWAZUDIN SIDIQQUI from the very beginning to the end just is the super hero whom we look onto and get completely convinced with his character, he just steals ur heart 
Its a must watch @ theatres . Support movies like this to mint large profits @ the cash registers given that these kind of movies are RARE OF THE GEMS IN BOLLYWOOD 😋
STORY & SCREENPLAY
The Screenplay of this movie 🎬. Goes butter perfect delivering a cinematic feel without any flaws or over dragging , everything in the movie just is placed rightly , the story narration is just awesome , dialogues are well written and well matched to the scenarios . The story is just super inspiring and heart touching in short its about a man named DASHRATH MANJHI 😊 from ghelore village , when d story starts its exactly 25 years after independence n this village still doesn't seem to have experienced even the vibes of freedom, development , there is a massive mountain gasp emoticonin d village which blocks all development as there is no road connectivity , people need climb/trek through the mountain to goto a city. MANJHI gets married at a very tender age ie child marriage 💑 but for some years he just goes away from his village and after 7 years returns back starts his life with his beautiful wife , he loves her a lot but one fine day she just slips off the great mountain and counts her last breath in MANJHIS ARMS , that moment Manjhi just transforms to an unbreakable mountain man who toils and works all alone to break the mountain and make way tat connects to the village , in this verge no1 helps hill till the end , he faces extreme of the extreme conditions like no water ,no food to survive , major wounds , amputation of his toe and some political pressure still he doesn't live hopes ,he keeps up his oath of breaking the mountain and making road to the village . What happens next ? Does govt help him in making fine tar roads after breaking the mountain ? Does he keep up his oath ? How does he do it? Are the questions tat will be answered when u watch the movie this weekend @ ur nearest cinema halls .
PERFORMANCES
The ultimate show stealer is the lead role NAWAZUDIN SIDDIQUI, I feel no1 could do it better in getting such an realistic feel in his character starting from the young dashing and crazy dashrath heart emoticon to the rigid and undying mountain man dashrath baba . He will.seriously make.u smile , cry and feel the pain the character I call this CHARACTER MAI GHUSKE ACTING BOSS. HATS OFFF..... Apart from him.radhika apte also has been too good with her acting her accent and complete different role . Rest on part the ensemble cast has done a fabulous job
FINAL VERDICT
its a must watch pooora paisaa vasool movie I should say . Watch this to get inspired from the story inspired on real incident . Watch it for the super awesome performances. Watch it for its one of those rarest of rare gems in Bollywood . smile emoticon

BROTHERS


BROTHERS
My take is a ONE TIME watch 2.7 star 🌟 🌟1/7
This is d Hollywood remake of the film "WARRIOR" with a lot of mellow drama & desi tadka .The FIRST HALF makes u SLEEP 💤  DEEP,then  the pre interval peppy number MERA NAAM MARY HAI item song is an ALARM to wake u up for the happening 2nd half which pumps up your adrenaline with some breath taking fight sequences and a curious climax. Watch it for Akshay Kumar , watch it for its energetic , mellow dramatic , flattery and curious 2nd half and finally kudos to the DOP (director of photography)for awesome capture all throughout.
STORY & SCREENPLAY
In the first half screenplay just  goes flat and slow with absolutely nothing that can pump your spirits as the narration transits,the second half gets to be interesting as an when it goes on , the curiosity increases , though a lot of screen time and scenes are wasted for unwanted focus and hawabaazi still some fight sequences specially the ones involving Akshay Kumar are awesome and taken long enough to keep the audience waiting for the next move to happen . The climax just takes ur spirits high on ur expectation , curiosity ,emotion and enthusiasm and you leave the theatres with a spirit of brotherhood . The story is about 2 brothers , 2 fighters and one face off of blood against blood ie the ultimate fight which takes on the heights of a relation test and finally delivers u a great climax .
BACKGROUND SCORE
As earlier mentioned the alarm to wake u up in the movie is the peppy number MERA NAAM MARY HAI apart from this the other songs in the movie make the film transit even more slow .
 PERFOMANCES
The role has well suited AKSHAY KUMAR THE KHILADI his performance and fight sequences are a lot in elaboration and very well appeals to the role of a fighter on the other hand Siddharth malothra has been impressive with his agression and rage but not is perfect and most of his fight sequences except the climax one are all momentary fights where he knocks down the opponent in a minute or so . And finally Jackie shroff has been super awesome in the role of father and an alcoholic , his acting , and the expressions and emotions expressed by him.for his character still proves that there are a few acting legends live between us . And then jacquiline Fernandes didn't hav much to do but she had something different to Deliver then her usual just an appearance .
FINAL VERDICT
Watch it for Akshay Kumar , this is an one time watch movie , walk in to ur nearest cinema halls and get your punches , fatkas and a lot of halla boll all throughout the movie . This movie will make u sleep , it will make u awake , it will make u dance for the item number and finally it will make u feel by the end  .

BANGISTAAN


BANGISTAAN
My take is a one time entertainer 4 star rating
This film is a mix of everything starting from  comedy and fun sequences , impressive ritesh-pulkit combo &acting, beautiful message and theme ,short and sweet cameo, Surprising and touching  climax with typical happy ending .  Watch it for timepass because this is one of those rare movies which portrays  a beautiful message along with humour.
STORY & SCREENPLAY
The film starts of with a few sequences which bore you and adding to it are few points where over acting just irritates you buy gradually the film takes off entertaining you and grabing your attention slowly as the 2nd half nears and post interval the film just rocks , in the verge we have the very beautiful jacquiline Fernandez making special appearances time to time and finally the climax just surprises you and wins your heart and leaves you smiling by the end .
The story unwinds life of 2 guys a Muslim and the other hindu, one from north bangistaan and other from south bangistaan a fictional place , these 2 guys  aspire to be terrorist with a same  motive of suicide bombing in an international religious conference after a series of misleading gyaan from religious heads stating that the  this activity will open their doors to heaven . They get convinced and set apart to execute their plan with a changeover in look and name ie the Muslim guy goes on the mission in a getup and feel representing hindu and the Hindu guy changes over as a Muslim   , they reach Poland where the conference is to happen ,they accidentally meet each other and become friends unaware of each others motive ,they collect raw materials and build a human bomb . Some days before the incident both these friends get to know each others reality and that's when the story takes a twist , what happens next ? Do they succeed in executing their plan or they change their mind and work towards peace? Are all the questions that will shoot u with answers this weekend when you walk in to the nearest cinema halls .
PERFOMANCES
I should say watch this movie for one more reason and ie is RITESH DESHMUKH & PULKIT SAMRAT. Both have been incredibly good ritesh with his humor and pulkit with his charm ,they both as a combo will make u laugh , make u cry and and finally by the end of d movie make u feel the need for peace  . Jacqueline Fernandez cameo has been short and sweet she has very few dialouges to mouth but still she keeps the curiosity on among the audience and we wait to see her over and again


FINAL VERDICT
Its a one time entertainer , go for it to have ur dose of humour and fun with some emotion and if possible you will return back with a beautiful message for life 😋😋

MASAAN

MASAAN
My take is a Realistic & Awesome Spectacle 4 Star
The movie revolves around 2 parallel stories which takes u on a realistic ride of their life and their problems and finally how they take a step ahead and over come all this even after being crushed between barriers & constraints of life like caste , guilt of sexual encounter, corruption etc. Watch this movie for its spectacular cast delivering flawless performance, its beautiful poetry & a story which will leave you with a thought on happenings in the society which drives on content & not on much hyper mellow drama.
This film  which premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival, has won two awards-- FIPRESCI, International Jury of Film Critics prize and Promising Future prize in the Un Certain Regard section.

STORY & SCREENPLAY 

Highy driven by content this movie as i earlier mention takes you on a realistic drive of 2 stories one is devi played by richa chadha who is struggling to get out of guilt of her sexual encounter and seeking release from the captive of a greedy cop who demands 3 lakh for not making her encounter public and in this case is her father who is struggling to somehow payback that 3 lakhs and save his daughters dignity . And in this verge devi also faces a lot of vulguar & obscene comments from people who judge her over her personal choice . On the other hand the 2nd story is about son of a DOM who dreams to be an engineer meanwhile he falls for a girl whom he loves with all his heart but the twist calls for worries in their life is that the boy belongs to a lower caste and the girl of higher caste which creates a kind of limit within then still they plan to break the limits and dive forward ,their story takes on with beautuful shairies & Poetry.
The screenplay is just awesome but what is missing is a kind of detailing in its characters which could make the audience explore and know the characters better and few flaws here & there leaving this aside its Still its a worth watch for the story .
What happens in their life how do they over come all this etc will be answered when you watch the movie in the nearby cinema halls .

Perfomances :

High notch performances by the entire caste starting with richa chadha has done it to the par excellence in the role of a girl who is ridden by her guilt and badly treated by the society , she has been bold with her character and also been expressive enough to get that feel & pain in her acting . Vicky Kaushal who falls in love with a high caste girl has done seriously a great job , he has been perfect all through the movie , he has been great . Apart from this devis father sanjai mishra has been too good with his simple yet outstanding perfomance in the movie .

Final Verdict :

Though it has no extra added mellow drama or masala it has something which needs to be appreciated , something that most of the film do not have sensibly and that is the theme & story of the movie which drives it concentrating on the content . Watch it for the spectecular perfomances & the story . Support the effort behind such kind of movie making which is rare in bollywood .
