Fukrey Returns Movie Review: Star Performance

Varun Sharma is the heart of the film as he really has many amazingly hilarious scenes. When one thinks about the character of Choocha, no other actor could’ve suited better than Varun Sharma in it. He is just amazing in this film. From his comic timings to his cute expressions, Varun just nailed it in his role.

After Varun’s role, Pulkit Samrat and Pankaj Tripathi are the ones who have important roles in the film. Both performed their roles exceptionally well but we just can’t ignore the performance of Pankaj Tripathi. He’s the one actor who’s giving back to back amazing performances and we just can’t do anything but love him more and more. Richa Chadha as badass Bholi is enough to entertain you. Her scenes are really good to watch in the film, especially the chemistry between Choocha-Bholi in which you’ll laugh at high.

Sadly, Ali Faizal and Manjot Singh got a very less to offer something great but they’ve done full justice to their roles. Vishakha Singh and Priya Anand are just wasted in the second part of Fukrey as they’ve got nothing special. There are certain portions in the end but all of that seems forceful to the film.

Fukrey Returns Review: Direction

Mrigdeep Singh Lamba has presented the movie in the most entertaining way. The director focused on the best things in this film and it has left some unexplored things hidden in this one but it won’t make you think much as the film is full of entertainment. Fukrey Returns makes you laugh like anything and it is without any doubt one of the comedies of this year.

Fukrey Returns Movie Review: The Final Word

Fukrey Returns is the superbly entertaining film to watch. This film has maintained the class of its first part. It is unarguably one of the best comedy films of this year. Do watch this film.

Chef Movie Review: Star Performances

Chef Movie

Saif Ali Khan as Roshan Kalra or desi Carl Casper proves that he was the best choice to play this character. The 47-year-old actor played his role with such sincerity and simplicity that you will surely fall in love with his character. Displaying the fatherly love with maturity and maintaining the deeper nuances of the character is something makes the Khan perfect choice for this role. He’s the complete entertainer in his role.

Svar Kamble as Saif’s son played a vital role in the film and he succeeded greatly in portraying his character. His scenes with Saif Ali Khan are something to watch this film out for.

Padmapriya Janakiraman is damn so hot!!! You just can’t miss the scenes when she’s on screen. She gave justice to her role and character as required from her. Chandan Roy Sanyal as Saif’s sous-chef is uplifting and brings the amazing positivity. Dinesh P Nair as food truck driver is a surprise package for us as his comic timing is something one just can’t miss. He is too hilarious in some scenes. Milind Soman plays Robert Downey’s role from the original and gives justice to it. The sexiness that Scarlett Johansson brought in the original film was highly missed in this film as Sobhita Dhulipala is not up to the mark.

Chef Movie Review: Direction, Music

The director Raja Krishna Menon makes this story organized amazingly. He has done an amazing job in making certain changes from the official adaptation and showing it in desi Indian style. He made this fil an appetizing treat for the cinematic taste buds.

Raghu Dixit was the perfect choice for the music of this film. He prepared songs that fit on their appropriate situations and makes you soothe as well. Songs like Darmiyaan, Banjara & Shugal Laga Le are just incredible to listen on repeat mode. We just hope that we could see Raghu Dixit in Bollywood in future more often.

Chef Movie Review: The Final Word

This delightful film will surely make you emotional, gives you beautiful advice and loads of feelings in a very light manner. Watch this film if you’re a cinematic taste bud.

Baadshaho Movie Review: Waste of Big Star Cast due to Terrible Script

Stars: 2/5 Stars

Star Cast: Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D’Cruz, Esha Gupta, Vidyut Jammwal, Sanjay Mishra

Director: Milan Luthria

What’s Good: Ajay-Emraan combo and the suspense

What’s Bad: The so-so script

Loo Break: Yessssss! Many in the second half

Watch or Not: We won’t mind if you miss this film

Baadshaho Review: Script Analysis

The script of this film is been written by very famous writer Rajat Arora, whose scripts are enough capable to make some big numbers at the box office. It wasn’t the same case with Baadshaho. Rajat Arora, who has always been famous for giving fantastic movies, failed this time to create any magic with this film.

Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, Gabbar is back, The Dirty Picture, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara! Kick are some of his memorable films. Sadly, Baadshaho fails badly to even come close to any of the above-mentioned films. The script is so amateur and confused that you will feel that the film has nothing to show you except the main cast in it doing worthless things without a reason. From the dialogues of the film to the story, it is extremely boring and unimpressive.

Baadshaho Review: Star Performances

In an ensemble cast film like this, which is filled with the superstars, it becomes difficult to take about one particular performance of an actor. In Baadshaho, where one just can’t find out the script as that’s the weakest part of it, you just can’t blame the failure of such a film on one actor’s shoulders. If you have to find a good reason to watch this without a scripted film, then Ajay Devgn is the only reason to bear it. His dialogue delivery makes you feel good and gives you the reason to watch the film. I won’t say that Ajay Devgn gave an amazing performance, but yes, he gave full justice to his role. He is one of the major reasons to bear the film.

Coming to the performance that comes close second following Ajay’s work is of Emraan Hashmi. His cool avatar may attract the masses and he looks quite cool and playful in his role. There is nothing too deep about this role, so you’ll get focus on him as there’s nothing else better in the movie. Talking about the Esha Gupta’s role, it looked like she’s playing same roles again and again. There is no difference that you will admire in Esha’s role from her previous films.

The role of Vidyut Jamwal looks very powerful and dashing, but sadly, it fails miserably after some starting scenes. There is nothing much to like about his role. I personally liked the way Ileana D’Cruz gave justice to her role. There is nothing extraordinary for her to make an impact in front of big superstars like Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi, but she played her role quite decently.

Baadshaho Review: Direction and Music

The direction of Milan Luthria, who’s famous for directing big hits like Once Upon a Time in Mumbai and Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara, failed to reach the expectations of the audiences. Even though his direction is fine, but due to the sad script, you won’t be able to tolerate anything about the film. You will find many glitches after every 10-15 minutes of the film. It looks like that the makers were not serious about making this film and took the audience for granted. Coming to the second half, it was a disaster in just one word. The movie is too stretched in the second half for no reason and there’s no story to watch out in the second half.

Coming to the music of the film, the movie’s background score is really impressive. There are some songs in the film that are already topping the musical charts like ‘Mere Rashke Qamar’ and ‘Socha Hai’. These two songs are way better than the whole movie.

Vivegam Movie Review: Ajith and Siva get Satisfied Result for their Efforts

Vivegam movie cast: Ajith, Kajal Aggarwal, Akshara Haasan, Vivek Oberoi
Vivegam movie director: Siva
Vivegam movie rating: 3 stars

The greatest fan of Thala Ajith is Director Siva, Nobody can match him when it comes to admiring Ajith and his looks. So much so that he has made a film called Vivegam spending more than Rs 100 crore. With highly-skilled assassin Ajay Kumar, the film opens  (Ajith) leading a one-woman mission to secure a tool that contains details of activating a weapon of mass destruction. He worms into the enemy lines and wreaks mayhem.

At the top of the primary action sequence, before jumping off the long-lasting Contra Dam, Ajay mouths the favoredpunchline – “Never ever, give up.” simply once his enemies assume that they need got him boxed up, he accomplishesone thing not possible and completes the mission with success. that’s the gist of the film. Vivegam is all regarding the exploits of 1 man, United Nations agency will ne’er be overwhelmed.

Ajay is a master at many things and he is a flawless character, you name it

  • Be it searching
  • killing his target
  • riding cars and bikes
  • or helping his wife with cooking in her restaurant

An exemplary human being that you cannot help but adore him. From the start to the top, Shiva has been consistent in taking part in up all the goodness in Ajay, that when it slow causes you to snooze. Into the film for concerning half-hour, it seems like, “yes, affirmative we tend to perceive he’s a spiritual being in human kind. will we tend to please get to the story already?”

While he can read his targets if they are lying or not, he cannot identify the backstabbers in his team masquerading as friends. Ajay has a heart full of love and trust for his wife and friends but he may be a killer. And that’s the main reason for his downfall.

Both are top officials of an international spy agency. (Vivek Oberoi) Aryan Singha is Ajay’s teammate but more than that he is Ajay’s brother from another mother.At least, till he determined to empty his gun into Ajay’s back. Let’s say it’s a conglomerate of spy agencies of the planet. Ajay is tasked with a mission to search out hacker Natasha, United Nations agency features a new face once undergoing a facial surgery. She has the keys to activate nuclear weapons which will cause artificial earthquakes in anywhere on earth.

Well, as we know Ajay is the right man for an impossible task, he finds her and soon forges an intimate bonding with her. And things go haywire as Ajay finds out he just got played. Natasha (Akshara Haasan) gets a subtle but more interesting introduction in the film. She carries the information worth billions of dollars in two hard disks. And it has nearly become impossible for operatives to track and nab her.

It was only a matter of time Aryan turns against him, one could have guessed it. Ajay now rises from the ashes and seeks retribution against those who wronged him.

Ajay contains a lovely partner, Yazhini Kumar (Kajal Aggarwal). Yazhini may be a terribly duteous partner, Who understands her husband’s life is often on the road. And keeps line him to understand his well-being. And Ajay never misses respondent her calls, even in a very high-speed chase. Before the top of the primary half, Ajay answers Yazhini’s phone once he’s hanging on to a branch of a tree as he’s being unemployed at by his new enemies. He guarantees her that he can come back to her alive. So, he does. It’s really funny once you return to consider it. despite WHO you’re or what scenario you’re in, you need to answer the phone once your partner calls. Period. Even once you square measure dying. Period.

Ajay gets shot multiple times within the back. But, rather than desperately seeking the emergency medical facilitate, he goes on doing high-intensity workouts on the snowy mountains to vasoconstrictor pumping ‘Thala Viduthalai’ track in preparation to fight his enemies, however he survived the bullet wounds is rarely explained.

Vivek falls wanting invoking any feelings within the audience. He backstabs his shut friend and tries to bomb Republic of India. But, still, we have a tendency to don’t hate him as a result of he’s invariably complimentary Ajay and the way. Even once he’s defeated once more and once more, rather than ruing over his failure, he finishes up loving Ajay. which makes his character utterly unreal.

It is Ajith’s show all the approach. His look and onscreen attractiveness facilitate audience disregard serious logical follies within the writing because the titles rattle off at the tip of the film, the audience is shown the sub-rosa videos shot throughout the action sequences. And one will see the hassle that has gone into creating this fancy film. Ajith and Hindu deity get full marks for his or her efforts.

Vivegam has sensible music, sensible visuals, high-voltage action sequences, picturesque landscapes and exquisite faces. Conjointly add moving moments between the characters of Ajith and Kajal to the list. If you’ll be able to overlook flattery, tangential emotions and groundless logic, Vivegam may be a sensible popcorn individual.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Movie Review, It Will Make You Laugh, Sense and Understand

First half: 3.5/5 Stars
Second half: 2.5/5 Stars
Overall Rating: 3/5 Stars

Watch it or miss it: One should watch the film for the beautiful attempt to raise a serious issue that we all must know about.

Star Cast: Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar, Anupam Kher,  Divyendu Sharma, Sudhir Pandey, Rakesh Sharma.

Director: Shree Narayan Singh

What’s good: A very strong message despite some flaws, honest performances, and really hilarious moments in the first half.

What’s bad: Too many unwanted songs, Slow screenplay, lacks its innocence in the second half.

Loo break: Not really! But you can prefer in many boring songs.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha: Story

The name ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ itself says everything that the film is all about. It is a love story with an important issue of open-defecation in India. The story is about the Keshav, played by Akshay Kumar, a 12th failed 35-year-old bachelor who’s vigorously entrapped by his father’s traditional rituals. Jaya, played by Bhumi Pednekar, who is full of life and not give a damn about the world girl is purely opposite of the Akshay’s character. Hence, it’s proved that two opposites attract and that’s what happens with these two purely different personalities in this film as well.

The story takes a big turn when they both get married and she gets to know that there is no toilet facility in Keshav’s house and she has to go for the open-defecation. After this incident, Keshav makes sure that he’ll go against the years-old tradition and fights for it with his dad’s (Pandit Ji) long-established ideology to make toilet facility at his home. There are many funny scenes in the first half to enjoy and beautiful dramatic scenes that you will enjoy when you’ll see this film. The story of this film is very simple yet the strong message of it makes this Akshay Kumar starrer very special.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Review: Star Performances

We loved Akshay Kumar as Keshav and the 49-year old actor performed his character with calmness and full honesty. He lived his character gracefully and gave a performance that we all will remember him for. He is funny, emotional at times, and even makes you fall in love with his good deeds to fight against long-established Indian traditions. There are some dramatic scenes in the film where Akshay performed so beautifully and strongly that you will have moist in your eyes. If you are an Akshay Kumar fan, then you just can’t miss this film. Akshay Kumar’s accent of an Uttar Pradeshi is also very impactful and looks very real.

Bhumi Pednekar is the surprise package of this film. She as Jaya looks so simple and real that every girl would be able to attach to her character and the issues that every Indian girl faces. She looked so real in this de-glam role and her screen presence will make you fall in love with her acting skills if not anything else. She played a role of a simple girl who knows what is wrong or right and fights for it as well. From her beautiful expressions to her dialogue delivery, she was the best in every department.

Divyendra Sharma adds icing on the cake with his spectacular performance. There are many scenes between Divyendra and Akshay that are really hilarious and heart-touching as well. Anupam Kher as Bhumi Pednedkar’s grandfather gave justice to his role who’s always interested in watching the Sunny Leone films. He has not too much to create magic, but yet he’s good in the film. Sudhir Pandey played the role of Akshay’s father in this film and he is amazing in this film. He will annoy you through his character and that’s where he hits you.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Review: Direction and Music

The film is directed by Shree Narayan Singh and he has done a fine good but great at all. There are many flaws in the film that one can easily notice, but thanks to some amazing scenes that will not make you realize again and again.  Talking about the screenplay, it is really very boring and slow at times. There are some scenes in the film, which are for no reason and drag the screen time only.

The music of this film is the biggest setback for it as there’s no soul in it. Music is given by Vickey Prasad, Manas-Shikhar and Sachet-Parampara and that’s not good at all. Talking about the background music by Surender Sodhi, it is good enough to bear.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Review: The Final Word

There is no doubt in it that it is an honest attempt to raise a serious issue through the film of which still many people are unaware. Yes, there are many flaws in this film, but you will enjoy some hilarious and dramatic scenes of the film. It will surely make you laugh, think, believe and understand about an important issue of defecation in the open. And in conclusion, one must watch this film for the purely honest performances of Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pedenkar, and Divyendra Sharma.

5 Reasons why ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ Failed to Win the Heart of Audiences

The much-awaited film ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ starring Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma released on last Friday. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, the audiences had huge expectations from this film, but it failed to create any magic. It received negative to average reviews from most of the critics. Despite the deadly combination of Shahrukh’s comeback in romantic genre, Anushka’s absolute beauty, and director Imtiaz Ali’s unique storytelling, the film failed badly at the box office. In this Article, we will tell you the 5 reasons why ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ failed to win the heart of audiences. The motive of the article is not to criticize the film, but to show you the real reasons why it failed at the box office.

  1. Negative Reviews by the Critics

‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is one film that you can watch at least once very easily, but the way critics criticized this romantic comedy film, everyone started making fun of this film on the social media. The director Imtiaz Ali was being criticized for making such a bad film and people were posting bad all over on the social media about this film. The negative reviews by the critics impacted the film very badly and that’s why it also failed to enhance its box collection even its first weekend.

  1. Not a Typical Shahrukh Khan Romantic Film

As we all know that Shahrukh Khan is called as the ‘The King of Romance’, there are many of the reasons behind that as well. From playing Raj in ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ to Rahul in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, the 51-year old superstar has always been famous as a next-door boy romantic hero, but in this film, he was not playing the typical romantic hero. The character of Harry had his dark shades and reasons why he was lost in his life. Many of the audience were expecting that will get to see the vintage Shahrukh Khan in ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, but Imtiaz Ali had something purely out of the box to offer.

  1. Messy Second Half

Talking about the first half of the film, it was superbly planned and the story was moving in a right direction, but there is nothing like this in the second half. The second half of the film was quite boring and it lacks the screenplay as well. This was the biggest reason that the film failed to connect with the audiences in the second half and it becomes difficult for the public to watch the film till the end. From unnecessary songs to useless scenes, the second half is surely stretched for no reason. You will feel a little disconnected with the characters in the second half as there’s no story to watch out in the second half. That’s why the audiences of single screen theatres hated this Imtiaz Ali film.

  1. A Very Small Audience to Understand the Cinema of Imtiaz Ali

There is no doubt in that Imtiaz Ali is one of the finest directors of this generation and his movies like ‘Jab We Met’, ‘Rockstar’, and ‘Highway’ was highly appreciated and it made him a very popular director. On the other hand, his dark character films like ‘Tamasha’ also failed to connect with the larger audiences. Same is happening with ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ as well. The majority of the audiences failed to connect or understand the character of Harry and his dark sides. The audiences who can relate to the character of Harry is normally very limited in India and that’s why the characters failed to touch the larger audience.

  1. Bad Promotional Strategy

The Badshah of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan, is known for his promotional strategies for his films, but with this film, they failed to create a peak buzz for the film, which was much needed. From releasing mini trails to the song releases, the makers of the film took a lot of time in releasing the trailer of the film. The trailer hits the audiences the most and that’s the public plans to watch that movie or not. They released the trailer of the film very late and that was not a marketing strategy at all. It affected in creating the buzz of the film and that’s why it received lukewarm at the box office on its opening day with collecting just 15.25 crore. The bad promotions had affected the film so badly that it’s going to be called as a ‘Flop’ in India.

Mubarakan Review After 5 Days, Fun Between Arjun and Anil Kapoor

On Friday, Arjun Kapoor and Anil Kapoor’s Mubarakan started on a low note business . The film collected  an opening of Rs 5.25 crore on its first day.  While, Taran Adarsh the Trade analyst tweeted,” Mubarakan had a slow start from Fri + Sat + Sun are crucial. On Fri its collection is ₹ 5.25 cr  according India biz.com. ” The movie is expected to show  some growth till the weekend. It has been expecting that “Arjun Kapoor” starrer film will give a decent first weekend collection and will remain stay steady throughout the whole week. However, the movie will face some stiff competition with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer movie “Jab Harry Met Sejal”  which is releasing next week.

Pretty girls along with Ileana D’Cruz, Neha Sharma and Athiya Shetty showed up, the former getting in the line or may be  two. The  role of a  Muslim girl (‘haaye haaye’) in love is played by very fineactress Sharma with the one of the brawny Punjabi ‘mundas’, and you cheer that  just a little, because then  hey, who knows, which  might  be in for some inter-religious amity. And then a comedy of errors is set into the, revolving around the reluctant grooms and the  runaway brides, and the  good Punjabi ‘praa’ (Pavan Malhotra) and his equally loving ‘bainji’ (Shah).

So far, I’m really not wincing. And then the post-interval set is upon us, and suddenly, the film’s funny bone gets lost. After that It becomes a very long, maudlin harangue on the family values and very  good sisters and brothers, while slipping in a few distasteful jokes about the  wives and women. And that Muslim girl angle? It is just a ruse, and a total cop-out.
