In a nutshell, ‘Bansuri’ has its heart at the right place, however, it fails to leave a lasting impact on the audience. Truth be told, even the sincere performances couldn’t cause us to hear the strains of the flute till far.
Overall, ‘The Big Bull’ is a decent attempt to tell a dramatic story of one of India’s biggest financial scams, orchestrated by a man, who seemed more like a common man than a con man. Watch it if you’re an Abhishek Bachchan fan, but don’t let the stock of your expectations rise too high.
The most convincing part about this one is its title ‘Koi Jaane Na’ that perfectly sums up the feeling after watching it.
‘Flight’ circles around the systematic abuse of money and power the aviation-manufacturing industry is allegedly plagued with but from the way this tale’s shaped up to the way the makers have executed it on screen, we would say it shouldn’t have left the runway in the first place.
The film follows the career highs and lows of the former world no 1, India’s ace shuttler, Saina Nehwal. It also pays tribute to the people who immensely contribute to her resilience and unbreakable spirit.
If you like gritty gangster dramas packed with brawn, blood and bullets then ‘Mumbai Saga’ could be worth a watch.
‘Sandeep and Pinky Faraar’ is one of those neo-noir films that set out with a promise to engage, entertain and educate by slowly unraveling its layered subtext. But with its preposterous execution and frustratingly slow pace, it’s the audience who might want to escape, much before Sandeep and Pinky.
For its 113 minutes’ runtime, ' Time To Dance' offers a bucketful of superb dance performances to keep you engaged throughout.
In a nutshell, ‘Mera Faulji Calling’ is a human-interest story that leaves an impact despite its glaring flaws.
Overall, the film remains true to its genre and packs a good dose of entertainment, which makes it worth a trip to the theatre.
Overall, it’s a novel idea with a fresh and breezy storyline that has its moments. But with more depth and soul, this idea of bi-weekly romance could have become a love story for all seasons.
Overall, ‘Maassab’ deals with the issue of the dilapidated condition of rural education in India that needs special attention from the government. Despite a convincing and impactful story in hand, this social commentary turns out to be an average watch.
Madam Chief Minister gets our vote for being an entertaining political drama, set in the crime-infested corridors of power.
Overall, ‘Bolo Hau’ is an old wine in a new bottle with a special flavour of Hyderabad.
With a tighter, finer screenplay and more consistent performers, ‘The Power’ could have been a befitting response of this decade to the ‘Sarkar’ franchise but a lacklustre narrative, among other things, brings the power down to level zero.
If you get spooked easily, you may not mind this one. However, as a psychological thriller that's focussed on ‘one’s believes in supernatural activities only when they have faced themselves’, ’12 ‘o' Clock’ fails to hold your attention for too long and ends up being a bit of a drag.
To sum it up, ‘Kaagaz’ could have been the go-to movie for those seeking a burst of inspiration, but it ends up being a uni-dimensional masterclass on one man’s acting prowess.
Despite all the good intentions and a talented cast, ‘Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi’ fails to make the desired impact and eventually turns out to be an average family entertainer.
The film’s music is catchy and the songs are well-shot with all the shenanigans of a grand Bollywood potboiler in place. It makes for a good watch, but the ‘Mirchi lagi’ song deserved a much better remake. Oh, and that’s true for the film as well.
Overall, ‘Shakeela’ is an honest attempt that tells a much lesser known story of a fallen star, but more conviction and stronger writing, could have propelled this not-so-dirty picture to newer highs.
