Baahubali 2 -The Conclusion

Baahubali 2 -The Conclusion
WORTH WATCH despite having a USUAL STORYLINE 3.5 Star
Best in class VFX for a Indian cinema till date with richest of the visuals, Grand sets and magnificent cinematography stitched well with Rajamouli Sir Narrative which is crisp , engaging and thrilling.The entry sequence of Bahubali is the best built scene i have seen in the recent times ,what falls short is absence of fresh story for a magnum opus with a budget of 2.5 billion , the story is just a usual family drama and is completely predictable, the world of Bahubali you entered with the first part comes down to a usual genre by the end . The War sequences and the techniques used need a bow as they are amazing to the level you would feel goosebumps at few sequences . So with a lot on action front and excellent CGI with epic performances by lead pairs this one stands out as a worth watch at cinemas. Well dont ask me why Kattappa Killed Bahubali as there are no spoilers in this review.

STORY & SCREENPLAY

The story as i said is not a fresh story its a usual family drama which is quite predictable and feels a bit out of sync for a magnum opus like baahubali , the screenplay is very well written hats off to SS RAJAMOULI Sir for such a crisp narration the way story transits makes you feel wooow such is the narration and transit of the story, the story is packed with powerful action sequences ,the build up for every character is larger than life  , the climax is a bit disappointing when you expect it to happen in a larger way , but over all the screenplay wins in keeping you gripped . The Story continues from where Kattappa is explaining every event and happening during the time of Mahendra Bahubalis father Amrendra Bahubali he tells him about his love life , and how things went on and all about the kingdom and about Bhalla Deva and their conspiracy and things go on and we come at a point where its revealed why kattappa killed bahubali? and thats where the narration of kattappa ends and we get to see the next move of Mahendra Bahubali , Now what is his move? Why did Kattappa Kill Bahubali? What is the final outcome ? And the rest of the questions that are popping up in your mind will be answered and unveiled when you walk in to the nearest cinema halls and watch this movie this weekend.

PERFOMANCES

Prabhas is the soul of the film he has done his job to the best he is completely into the character and looks massively strong and rigid and the sequences where he breaks down or shows extreme aggression just blows you high on adrenaline ,coming to Rana Dagubatti he has been deadly and extremely wild in the climax where he over powers bahubali for a while with his amazing acting skills , Anushka Shetty As devasena was also superb ,Ramya Krishnan as shivgami was epic and not to forget Satyaraj as kattappa makes u laugh , cry aas he is there all throught in every frame and he has done justice to his role as well . Rest follows the ensamble cast. Prabhas V/S Rana is really something to look for seriously

FINAL VERDICT

Its definetly a worth watch at cinemas for the fact that it has the power to drive you throughout the runtime with a few amazing moments from action to beautiful and exotic locales to crisp narration . For more visit http://yoviews.com

Begum Jaan

Begum Jaan
I give it a one time watch 3 Star
This one focuses on women power and how a women can take her stand defending the whole corrupt and inhuman system no matter what her profession is . its a brave attempt by the director to showcase a film in contrast with the great Rani Laxmi Bai at the backdrop and narrate a film at the forefront beautifully . The only drawback for this film remains to be that its dramatized to the very high level which at points looks unrealistic but over all can be watched once in the cinemas near you.

STORY & SCREENPLAY

The screenplay could have been a bit better with few dramatic moments skipped out to make it a worth watch all together but as a whole package the film has emotion action to keep you gripped till the end and a touching climax . The Story is about Begum Jaan and her complete team who are sex workers and own a place away from the village their place which they consider as a palace is full of colors , fun and they stay there in complete unity but one fine day a notice strikes their doors a notice to evacuate the place as a international border is supposed to be set up which passes right from the middle of their place , they deny evacuating the place on multiple requests they stand for the fact that though India has got independence the women of the country are still not safe and nor they have their share of freedom so Begum jaan trashes this request after which a lot of violence acts come their way some loose life but still begum jaan stands tall she tries every possible way to stand by her decision , midst this a few betrayals , challenges come along but they all stand tall but then whats the  outcome?  Does Begum Jaan suceed in retaining her palace ? Are thier lifes spared? who are the ones who betray her? for all the questions to be answered walk in to the nearest cinema halls and watch this movie this weekend

PERFOMANCES

Vidya Balan is the whole and soul of this film no one could do the role of begum with such ease as Vidya she has done her best completely a intense role coming to the negative role Chunky Pandey as Kabira i bet you will not be able to even recognise him such is his makeover and he has been excellent and cruel to the level best to suit well as a Villan . FInally the rest of the cast has done thier job equally well

FINAL VERDICT

Its a bit heavily dramatised but can be watched once in the cinemas given the theme and perfomances from the lead pairs

Shuddhi(Kannada)

Shuddhi
Excellent movie 3.5 Star
This ones a mind blowing narrative which focuses on women safety and the way society has its own perspective towards women and how justice is denied in the name of criminal or a rapist being juvenile or proved juvenile this movie has a strong point to focus on ie it doesn't matter whether such cruel and life harassing crime has been done by a juvenile or a adult crimes like rape need  stringent of the punishment in both the cases and no exception of any kind should be allowed . This revenge saga is a perfect movie to watch for another milestone for KFI , A movie to remember

STORY & SCREENPLAY

The story is well written with a screenplay which transits and splits into different parts and scenarios but finally joins magically to deliver a message for life , loved the way the movie is stitched together with various events and happenings . The story starts with 2 journalists who have passion to do something meaningful for the women who are unsafe in this country they are at the same time demanding for  equal justice for crimes like rape no mater the criminal is a juvenile they spread awareness around with street plays etc and they have named this project Niebhaya and alongside this is a story of a American lady who has come to Bengaluru on a mission which is at the begening not revealed she is almost the mystery girl till a few mins of movie and slowly the plot unveils and we get to know she is on her way seeking revenge from those  bloody monsters and criminals who have raped her innocent friend and killed her but due to power and position they have managed to proved themselves juvenile and come out free with minimum of the punishment . Now does she seek revenge what are the happenings that happen around when she starts her journey how does it go , how are the journalists related to her ? Does she accomplish her mission? Or she is suppressed again by power and politicians ? What is the final outcome? For all these answers walk in to the nearest cinema halls and watch this movie this weekend

PERFOMANCES

The female leads Nivedhitha, Amrutha & Lauren spartano have done a great job and got justice to their roles , rest follows the ensemble cast who has equally done a good job

FINAL VERDICT


Its definetly a worth watch at cinemas it has a wonderful message to take over and a appeal to our system that its high time to change and get stringent rules for crime against women irrespective of the criminals age , position etc . I highly recommend watching this movie in the nearest cinema halls Shuddhu(Kannada)

Poorna

Poorna
Goosebumps guaranteed 4 star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
What can be more inspiring than a 13 year old girl climbing the Mt Everest and the story being real to its facts . YOU WILL RETURN BACK CLAPPING AT THE CLIMAX.A beautifully portrayed sports reality drama which shows us that will power and a goal is all you need to reach heights once you have a reason to reach your goal your family background and all the other factors don't just count. I would recommend watching this in the nearest cinema halls , amazingly inspiring movie
STORY & SCREENPLAY
The screenplay is perfectly written and stitched to a perfect run time ie it is well edited nothing extra or nothing less its narrated the way its supposed to be and sticks to its facts , the direction is commendable . Climax is all about goosebumps . The story is about this small town girl Poorna who resides at this village where literacy rate is low and v low priority is give to education, all the elders wait is for the age just to get the girls married realising this poorna gets herself admitted in a school at a nearby village which provides free food , and education to save the cost of fees her parents agree to admit her and thats where she realises even these schools run fraud in the name of funds provided by govt and she plans to return back to her village and escapes from her school but to her luck exactly during that time a IPS officer who has love for the children and aims to do something for them opts out of his post to be a social welfare officer for the state he personally visits the schools which have v low drop out figures and takes corrective decisions to set it right and post this a lot of extra coCaricular activities along with academics go on and among all the extra caricular activity scheme one turns out to be mountain climbing where children are taken to a nearby mountain and trained with the basics and thats where poorna explores her love for mountain climbing and she takes it up seriously and she is supported by the officials and school authority but amidst she faces a lot of problems personally now what are those problems ? How does she tackle all these problems ? Does she succeed in being selected for the my Everest summit? How does she climb the mount at such extreme conditions and weather? Is what the movie is all about
PERFOMANCES
Aditi inamdar who has played the role of Poorna is the ultimate show stealer of this movie with her stellar performance , coming to Rahul bose as a director as well as the Ips officer has really justified a role of simpleton and you would love him for his work . And rest follows the ensemble cast
FINAL VERDICT
its a worth watch at cinemas completely inspiring and time and again i say support movies like these which really make sense to collect high profits at box office . I highy recommend watching this movie in the cinemas only
