Gully Boy Movie Review: Every Frame Breathes Life Into Our Souls!

Gully Boy Movie Review Rating: 4.5/5 Stars (Four and a half stars)
Star Cast: Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Raaz, Vijay Varma
Director: Zoya Akhtar
Gully Boy Movie Review: Every Frame Breathes Life Into Our Souls! What’s Good: Every frame breathes life, every line said by every character has a meaning to it, Ranveer is one of us & this time he doesn’t become the character – he’s the character, this movie isn’t led by one particular actor; it’s a team effort where everyone is at their best
What’s Bad: I’ll have to turn into a ruthless critic to nitpick few things just to dismiss them but I’ll not do that, because I’ve watched the movie as the audience and that’s how everyone should watch it
Loo Break: Only if there’s a situation where you have to pee in your pants, but even for that I’ll suggest carry some adult diapers
Watch or Not?: If you think ‘follow your dreams’ stories are done-to-death in Bollywood, just watch this to prove yourself utterly wrong

Gully Boy Movie Review Quicker: Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt Jaisa Koi Hard’ich Nahi Hai!

Gully Boy Movie Review Quicker: Murad (Ranveer Singh) is someone who knows where he has to go in his life but still the destination is unclear. Sometimes in the peer pressure, he does some things which are against his principles. On the other hand, we’ve got this outspoken girlfriend Safina (Alia Bhatt).
The first half majorly revolves around Murad and his realisation of doing something in life. He knows he has an artist hiding somewhere in him, he wasn’t clear until he met MC Sher (Siddhant Chaturvedi). He inspires Murad to rap what he writes and there starts a journey of something very memorable.
Gully Boy Movie Review Quicker: Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt Jaisa Koi Hard’ich Nahi Hai! The first half has an extremely well-written rap-battle which is a first for Bollywood and hence because of the novelty factor you’re just glued to that scene. Ranveer Singh’s character graph is unimaginable. How he blasts when he raps compared to his usual calm personality. Cinematography adds the authe..

Director: Mahesh Vaman Manjrekar
Bhaai: Vyakti Kee Valli (Uttarrardh) Movie Review: Captivating Tale Of Extraordinary Pu La Deshpande Entertains & Inspires At The Same Time! What’s Good: Superlative acts by lead and supporting cast, crisp editing and a well-balanced mixture of fun and emotion that keeps you hooked.
What’s Bad: Just like it’s the first part, this one too lacks that ‘massy’ element which might not go down well with some section of the audience.
Loo Break: Strictly during the interval
Watch or Not?: In a hustle and bustle of everyday life, this insight of iconic Pu La Deshpande’s life is a dose of happiness. It’s worth watching!

Amavas Movie Review: Watching A-MESS-(IT)-WAS Is A Horror Story In Itself!

Amavas Movie Review Rating: 1.5/5 Stars (One and a half stars)
Star Cast: Sachiin J Joshi, Nargis Fakhri, Ali Asgar, Vivan Bhatena, Mona Singh, Navneet Kaur Dhillon & a wrong spelling of ‘Alcohal’
Director: Bhushan Patel
Amavas Movie Review: Watching A-MESS-(IT)-WAS Is A Horror Story In Itself! What’s Good: Dialogues that will make you question your existence like “Iss sardi ke wajah se main marr jaaunga, please mere paas aa jaao!” (I’ll die of this cold, please come to me) and how smartly they’ve disguised a comedy movie under the horror genre
What’s Bad: It will not get much limelight because of a few very ordinary movies running in the theatre! I appeal to the government for making this movie tax-free in all the states (opening a new tab of Change.org to file a petition)
Loo Break: Yes! But be the first one to move to the loo, it could be difficult to get in because of a long queue!
Watch or Not?: Is this even a question? Get your bookings done before the shows get houseful, a..

The Fakir Of Venice Movie Review: An Antidote To The ‘Visit Europe’ Temptation Created By Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

The Fakir Of Venice Movie Review Rating: 2.5/5 Stars (Two and half stars)
Star Cast: Farhan Akhtar, Annu Kapoor
Director: Anand Surapur
The Fakir Of Venice Movie Review: An Antidote To The ‘Visit Europe’ Temptation Created By Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara What’s Good: It finally released! Superlative performances by the leads and even after a decade, the concept is fresh.
What’s Bad: It finally released in theatres! Its concept never gets the backing of strong writing and supporting cast performances.
Loo Break: As they roam around on the streets of Venice, you’ll roam around the corridor of your cinema hall for a break!
Watch or Not?: If you’re okay with a slow film (in parts) and good performances, you can give it a try on digital. In theatres, a strict no!

Alita: Battle Angel Movie Review: Turns Your Cinema Hall Into One Magnificent, Futuristic Museum!

Alita: Battle Angel Movie Review Rating: 3.5/5 Stars (Three and half stars)
Star Cast: Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Mahershala Ali, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Skrein, Keean Johnson
Director: Robert Rodriguez
Alita: Battle Angel Movie Review: Turns Your Cinema Hall Into One Magnificent, Futuristic Museum! What’s Good: The transportation of the real us to that ugly-yet-beautiful dystopian era, the accomplishment of achieving such an animated character from a real person, each and every sequence that contains action!
What’s Bad: The movie is stuck in development since 20 years and you feel that when you peel out the layers of VFX and CGI, the story just doesn’t match the grandeur of visual porn happening on screen.
Loo Break: Once you enter the cinema hall and put on your 3D glasses (IMAX recommended), the place will just convert into this futuristic, magnificent museum and there’s no chance you’ll want to leave it.
Watch or Not?: Want to experience visual porn on screen, one of the be..

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga Movie Review: A False ‘Brace For Impact’

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga Movie Review Rating: 2.5/5 Stars (Two and half stars)
Star Cast: Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Rajkummar Rao, Juhi Chawla, Brijendra Kala, Madhumalti Kapoor
Director: Shelly Chopra
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga Movie Review: A False ‘Brace For Impact’ What’s Good: Giving out the message without shouting out loud, very good amount of humour in the first half and some very impressive supporting cast performances.
What’s Bad: It just never settles in the zone where you can fall for the beautiful subject they’re trying to highlight, it takes you at the peak with all fun and games but once you reach there, the impact is not as effective as you expect it to be.
Loo Break: A few of them in the second half, when the drama turns into melodrama.
Watch or Not?: You can for a few good laughs, just don’t keep your expectations sky-high

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga Movie Review Quicker: Love & Laugh Between The Lines!

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga Movie Review Quicker: Starring Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao we got a hint from the trailer how it’s a love story with a modern twist. The makers take their own sweet time to unravel the rabbit out of the hat.
It starts with the family of Sweety (Sonam Kapoor) celebrating her high grades in her post-graduation exams. As any typical Indian family would do after, they are hunting guys for Sweety. She bumps into Sahil Mirza (Rajkummar Rao), an aspiring writer, as she runs from her family. As the makers drop hints about Sweety’s sexual preference, we see Sahil Mirza falling for her.
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga Movie Review Quicker: Love & Laugh Between The Lines! As far as the performances are concerned it’s Gazal Dhaliwal who’s the hero of the first half – she’s the one who has written the dialogues of the film. Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla and Madhumalti Kapoor (Gifty Biji) rule the strong pack of actors. The house party song is unwanted bu..

Thackeray Movie Review: Nawazuddin Siddiqui Conquers This Engrossing Political Drama!

Thackeray Movie Review Rating: 3/5 Stars (Three stars)
Star Cast: Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Amrita Rao, Rajesh Khera
Director: Abhijit Panse
Thackeray Movie Review: Nawazuddin Siddiqui Conquers This Engrossing Political Drama! What’s Good: A stellar performance by the stalwart Nawazuddin Siddiqui, some very good crowd-pleasing dialogues & a fascinating emotion of knowing more about the man – Balasaheb Thackeray
What’s Bad: Because of its excessive political infusion, the pace hauls at places, lack of masala dialogues, it’s not entirely for its target audience
Loo Break: It totally depends on your taste of enjoying political dramas because if you do, you can enjoy it in a single sitting
Watch or Not?: Watch it for the entertainment! The informative aspect of the film somewhere gets overshadowed because of its treatment

Manikarnika – The Queen Of Jhansi Movie Review: Kangana Ranaut – Brutally Bloody Beautiful!

Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi Movie Review Rating: 3.5/5 Stars (Three and a half stars)
Star Cast: Kangana Ranaut, Ankita Lokhande, Atul Kulkarni, Jisshu Sengupta, Suresh Oberoi, Danny Denzongpa
Director: Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi & Kangana Ranaut
Manikarnika – The Queen Of Jhansi Movie Review: Kangana Ranaut – Brutally Bloody Beautiful! What’s Good: The polished action sequences, Kangana Ranaut’s valorous attempt at doing something beyond our vision & a background score that fills up the powerhouse
What’s Bad: It’s very inconsistent; it drags because of few unnecessary sequences and songs, it takes a lot of time to build the transition of Lakshmibai to Jhansi Ki Rani Lakshmibai
Loo Break: Those who can’t digest long sequences & high voltage drama will crave for a break in the first half
Watch or Not?: A big absolute confident YES! It’s a story of courage told in a watchable way & a big, good screen should be the top priority
