Naam Shabana

Naam Shabana
Decent Timepass watch which lacks the thrill instinct 3 star
The prequel to the film Baby has some curious and to watch for moments but over all lacks that instinct of being a complete thriller , the climax is definetly amazing , film has a few comic links inherited from Baby ,Akshay Kumars presence makes it special and Tapsee in action is definetly something that you would love watching. The total runtime could have been reduced a bit as at points film drags.So over all u can watch it as a decent one time film.

STORY & SCREENPLAY

The screenplay is written the neeraj pandey way as similar to his patriotic flicks with a background score that of Baby which gives you a feel of the film baby at parts but the run time is quite prolonged which makes it look dragged at few points but the way story unfolds and transits from various happenings is cool. The story is about this girl named Shabana whom we have already seen assisting Akshay Kumar in baby so this movie focuses on how she was got on board for the agency to serve the nation , Shabana a young college going girl who has already gone thorough hardships in her personal life at a very tender  age because of her father is now trying to love her life she is ready to accept love coming her way but that day turns out to be the biggest loss of her life when few ruthless gangsters come their way and amidst the fight her love of life the guy she loves is murdered ,now shabana seeks revenge and the cops seem to try and dissolve this case as the gangsters seem to belong to a famous politicians family and she looses hope but them Manoj Bajpee who is the head of this agency which works for the nation gives her an offer with conditions and terms attached . Now what is that offer all about , does it favour her in taking revenge and what are the terms and conditions attached along this deal , does she agree or back off? And what is the rest of the mission all about and hows is it carried along is what the movie is all about

PERFOMANCES

Tapsee Pannu has put on immense effort and showcased her talent for the character Shabana she has done fight sequences to the level more than just convincing she has been bold , bright and energetic as Shabana , coming to Akshay Kumar he steals the complete lime light once he is on screen and coming to Manoj Bajpee he has done par justice to his role as the chief his dialouge delivery is just woow and he is as natural as possible

FINAL VERDICT

Though the film is a bit dull when it comes to thrill it wont disappoint you anyways you can go ahead and watch it once  in the cinemas . The climax is winning .

Anaarkali Of Aarah

Anaarkali Of Aaraah
A movie with a solid point at disposal 3.5 Star ⭐️⭐️ ⭐️.5
There are rare of these kinda movies which focus on the real issues in the society and this ones definetly intense attempt for a cinema
Which wins with its plot . But the sad fact being its a low budget film and most of them would miss watching this in the cinemas . But i would like to say support movies like these to mint higher profits at the box office so that we have sensible cinema time and again.

STORY & SCREENPLAY

The screenplay is very well written and edited to have a perfect runtime which makes it a movie which serves its point and theme without being dragged for no reason , the transition from first half to post interval seamlessly goes on with a decent narration . The climax just blows u high on curiosity and excitement . The story is about this young girl Anarkali who sings at the local functions and fairs organised in the town  and dances along with her unique steps and entertains the audience and in this film she is the Anarkali of a place named Aarah in Bihar , she is quite famous and known for her way of song of dance and people go crazy for her perfomance everything seems perfect until the day this man in power named VC publicly molests her and calls it love and post the incident he tries convincing her but she stands tall with the fact that she is a singer but that doesn't mean she has no self respect,but even the cops do not support her and she is labelled a sex worker as this man who molested her is in power and is misusing it as he wants he asks her to compromise in numerous obscene ways but she denies and that costs her high and she finally leaves the town . So is this the end of Anarkalis existence in Aarah? Or does she come back in a way no one ever expects? What happens to this cruel politician? Does she prove that all the allegations on her are false? Does she get back her self respect exploited by unfair means? For all these questions to be answered walk in to the nearest cinema halls and watch this movie this weekend

PERFOMANCES

Swara Bhaskar as Anarkali of Aarah has been raw and natural to her best and the accent she has adopted for her role is perfect which seems she is totally absorbed into her character she delivers a performance to remember . Coming to Sanjay Mishra as the bad politician he too has done justice to his role  and the rest follows the ensemble cast who has been equally good

FINAL VERDICT

Its a worth watch at cinemas the story plot and execution is intense and naturally deployed into a story which is convincing. walk in to the nearest cinema halls and watch this movie

Phillauri

Phillauri
An enlighting love story one time watch 3 Star
 Everything is just so soulful and soothing the VFX and Holographic 3D projection of Anushka as Ghost is crisp and winning, songs are Touching ,narration till the interval is so positive and mind blowing only thing that fails for the movie is its dragged 2nd half which is extended and exaggerated to a level which extremely bores you at parts . Over all it can be watched once for those humorous moments and all the love emotion and touching flavour of story it has.

STORY & SCREENPLAY

The screenplay is backed with humour , emotion with narration and transition in sync with 2 parlel stories until interval post which the film gets dull due to its dragged and over stretched sequences . The climax is touching . The story is about this young girl and a young boy from the village Phillaur both possess immense love for music but these were the times when music and singing were considered as something bad and had no respect from the society amdist this these 2 youngsters carry their love for music in their own way and then slowly fall in love and tat changes both of their lives completely now how does shashi become a ghost ? What happens to roop kumar who plays the love interest of sashi ? What is the story at the backdrop and who are these new people in the front end where shasi goes in as a ghost and what has the tree got to do with all this ? What happenes finally? For the complete story do wath Phillauri in the nearest cinema halls

PERFOMANCE

Anushka Sharma as Shashi has nailed it completely she has been super awesome with her performance and coming to Diljith he has too done par justice to his role , and the newbies suraj sharma and mehrene have done their job equally well

FINAL VERDICT

Its bit slow paced but if you can bear with its worth watching in the cinemas as it has got a nice story to portray by the end . You will come out with a warm happy feeling watching this movie .

Aa Gaya Hero

Aa Gaya Hero
The next worst film after Humshakals & Himmatwala 0.5 Star
Give every one a award who can sustain till the end of this movie in the cinemas
A caliber of actor like Govinda choosing a movie of this sort for his comeback is more hurting then anything else . There is absolutely nothing in the film , just a deliberate attempt to showcase heroism , camera work and VFX is horrific few sequences have a dreamy background added through VFX which looks purely cartoonish,there is no connect in any scene and  randomly songs keep popping up and Govinda dances along  with absolutely no scenario defined. The climax plays @ 5x speed with absolutely no sense

STORY & SCREENPLAY

There is no existence of screenplay in this film every thing that happens in the film is purely random and has nothing to do with the story .  The story is about a dynamic cop who plans a master game to bring in a change in the country by eliminating every corrupt and cruel politician and he names the file abhinaya chakra where is every one is just acting to be some one and then the rest follows and trust me you would keep wondering about what is actually happening in the film , a villain who has a unique laughter which resembles a siren keeps repeatedly laughing for no reason in his siren way , another gangster speaks in a smooch tone and no one knows why ? Govinda keeps dancing every 20 mins for no reason , a space centre with a kiddish aircraft entering into a cartoonish space centre carrying the villan is shown and no one knows why ?

PERFOMANCES

Govinda is known for his impeccable comic time and he is a natural actor no doubt but this movie he has tried hard to act when he actually dosent need to try hard as he is a natural actor but that has made it look worse then ever ,the rest of the cast of the cast has equally done bad job in the movie . Only Ashutosh rana in the role of gangster has been convincing with his performance

FINAL VERDICT

If you just want to watch Govinda on his comeback go for it , else there is not a single reason to watch this movie in the cinemas

Trapped

TRAPPED
Out of the box presentation something to look for 3.5 Star
This movie is way too different from those regular flicks as this stands out with its amazing plot of a person being trapped with no options left and that's when he discovers he is the only one who can set himself free. The way story unfolds keeps u at the edge of your seat and the performance takes it to the next level . Support movies like this to rake in high profit as these are kind if rare genre you could get to see

STORY & SCREENPLAY

The screenplay feels a bit lousy and slow but given the genre it belongs its fine to avoid the fact that it has less masala or commercial pinch  but over all the film provides u edge of the seat curiosity and at the end you go back with smiles and a healthy feeling . The story is about  a young man who works at a corporate he falls in love with this beautiful girl who works at his office but he is shy to approach her finally when he takes courage to do so he discovers that the girl also likes him but she puts up a condition forward that he has to own is better house for her and that too within a short period this forces him to go on hunt for rented flats but going by his low budget he fails to get any decent room thats when he meets this guy who takes him to a flat which is in dispute state and no one stays there and this guys moves in because he gets it under his budget everything seems fine until the say when he accidentally gets locked inside his own room and as nobody stays out there his screams are not heard ,no one comes to his rescue , his phone goes dead , there is no water in his flat all he is left with is hope , he tries every possible method from screaming out loud to setting a few things on fire inside his hime but no one ever notices and thats when he makes up his mind that he will not die inside he will try his best to get put of this place . He is left with no food and comes a  stage when ants and cockroaches are his only source of food and further on comed ever more horrific days . Now how does he manage to get out? Does he succeed? How does he get actually trapped inside his own flat ?  What are those horrific happenings inside when he is trapped ? Are all the questions that will unfold when u walk in to the nearest cinema halls and watch this movie this weekend

PERFOMANCES

Only this one man holds this whole film with his totally convincing and justifying act and he is RajKumar Rao he adds beauty to the script with his ease in acting . He is the whole and soul for this movie

FINAL VERDICT

Its a worth watch at cinemas though u need a bit of patience as its slow at parts but its worth for the plot it has and the unique narrative , you would rarely get to see such a movie in bollywood its a brave attempt by the director

Krishnaraj Acharya in a negative role was something i was looking for and mann you got that in you , that aggression and killer instinct with your rugged looks go the right way for the character . The Screenplay and its narration was crisp with story unveiling slow and steady but with emotion and memories to connect on and then The climax has an emotion connected, a feeling that will get you high on sentiment and to your surprise you would be left stunned .
Great work complete cast & Crew of this short film , loved it completely wished i too could be a part of it , 1 frank suggestion for improvement could be to work a bit more on editing front though the flaws were minor and avoidable , just my observation and i felt it should be well conveyed as feedback now that i loved your work.

Commando-2

Commando 2
Great theme but poor execution and plot 2.5 Star
A movie with engrossing and jaw dropping action sequences lost somewhere between its weak narration and plot failing to provide the level of thrill and amusement you expect from a action thriller , the movie ends with a touching social message focusing on farmers life could have been better if it was little more interesting with its plot and narration .

STORY & SCREENPLAY

The screenplay is written in a hogde-podge manner and humor is been forcefully  deployed in its narration to keep the audience entertained but the attempt fails high time as few sequences seem fake and intentional more than being real , the story unveils part by part with happenings around and twists but a few twists lack that thrill and just fall flat without being noticed ,The climax could have been far better than being the usual one on one and then a il logical sudden end . The story is about this young and powerful commando played by Vidyuth who is on a special mission of eradicating black money and getting back all the wealth that belongs to the citizens of the country , And this mission at point diverts from its usual motive as we see the team itself breaking into groups for their selfish needs but then the final of all the twist comes out as real surprise to everyone , So do they suceed in getting back the wealth to the poor citizens and are these goons exposed? and what is that final surprise all about and all these questions will be answered when you walk in to the nearest cinema halls and watch this movie this weekend

PERFOMANCES

Vidyuth as commando has given a thrilling and power packed perfomance , he looks tougher then ever and has done his role to the par excellence , he just grabs all your attention , coming to Adah Sharma she has been humorous with her role as hyderabadi girl with her konchem Konchem Telugu and hyderabadi hindi and Esha Gupta as the villan has also done her job to the best

FINAL VERDICT

Though it has a few thrilling sequences and a beautiful message at the end it fails high time on its execution and you wont return with a satisfactory feeling . i do not recommend watching this in the nearest cinema halls , if you are die hard action lover this would make sense to you .
