Ramaiya Vastavaiya Movie Review

Star cast: Girish Kumar, Shruti Haasan, Randhir Kapoor, Sonu Sood, Vinod Khanna, Poonam Dhillon, Satish Shah, Govind Namdeo, Zakir Hussain, Nassar, Anchal Singh, Pankhuri Awasthi

Director: Prabhu Deva

Designed to be an obsessive crowd pleaser this film doesn’t leave any stone unturned to be obviously funny!

The film tries too hard to be funny, loud and ridiculous, not to mention cliched!

Ramaiya Vastavaiya is for people who have a taste in juvenile comedy. This Prabhudeva directorial works unabashedly on regular formula of a hero, a heroine and her staunch elder brother. Expect an average entertainer; this one is a stylishly silly, regular masala rom-com that expects you to leave your brains at home!

Policegiri movie review

Cast:Sanjay Dutt, Prachi Desai, Prakash Raj

Director: K S Ravikumar

Produced by: T.P. Aggarwal, Rahul Aggarwal

Written by: Farhad-Sajid (dialogues)

Story by: Hari

Starring: Sanjay Dutt, Prakash Raj, Prachi Desai

Music by: Himesh Reshammiya, Meet Bros Anjjan

Cinematography: N. K. Ekambaram

Editing by: Samjith MHD

Distributed by: STAR Entertainment

Release date: 5 July 2013

For a film that is as spectacularly dumb, Policegiri makes far too much noise. The actors holler at the top of their voices, the action sequences are mind-numbingly silly, the background score can pierce through any cotton-wool shield, and the storyline is all sound and fury, and little else.

It is the sort of film in which the stuntmen get more play than any of the principal characters. The latter merely walk in and out of the picture, setting the stage for one violent confrontation after another.

Bodies and vehicles fly through obstructions, but the musclemen who bear the brunt of the action director’s imagination keep multiplying until the time the audience is ready to drop in disgust.

Policegiri is an attempt to cash in on the fact that Bollywood Actor Sanjay Dutt is in the news these days. The reasons are wrong in both cases.


Lootera Movie Review

Cast: Sonakshi Sinha, Ranveer Singh

Director: Vikramaditya Motwane

Directed by: Vikramaditya Motwane

Produced by: Ekta Kapoor, Shobha Kapoor, Anurag Kashyap, Vikas Bahl

Screenplay by: Bhavani Iyer, Vikramaditya Motwane

Story by: Vikramaditya Motwane

Starring: Ranveer Singh, Sonakshi Sinha

Music by: Amit Trivedi

Cinematography: Mahendra J. Shetty

Editing by: Dipika Kalra

Studio: Balaji Motion Pictures, Phantom Films

Distributed by: Balaji Motion Pictures

Release date: 5 July 2013

As the saying goes, “First Impression is the best Impression”, the first look of Lootera itself made a good impression and there prevails an eagerness to know what the film would be like. Posters and promos show that Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha were made for each other, but in the movie it is not that perfect. There’s young love, heartbreak, longing and closure.

The story is set in 1950’s Manikpur in West Bengal. Pakhi (Sonakshi), a graceful yet playful zamindar’s daughter falls in love with Varun (Ranveer), an archaeologist who wants to dip up her family property. But seeing the real face of Varun, Pakhi and her father is shocked. The lover separates, by chance to reunite in Dalhousie. But that time Varun does not want to turn his back on Pakhi, even if that means risking his life.

Lootera songs have a nice blend with the story and there is no running around the trees dance movement in the snow clad Dalhousie. Giving a feel of watching a Hollywood Classic the background works are excellent.

The story might not work with the younger audience since it was set in 50’s giving the pace of that era. If you like to watch a classic and slow romance then Lootera can be your taste to unfold and invariably have some tragic element.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag music review: A winning soundtrack!

Music: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy

Lyrics: Prasoon Joshi

Singers: Siddharth Mahadevan, Sukhwinder Singh, Divya Kumar, Javed Bashir, Shreya Ghoshal, Shankar Mahadevan, Loy Mendonsa

The music of Rakesh Omprakash Mehra’s “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” has eight tracks, including a Gurbani rendition. While a lot of the songs are inclined towards fun and passion, the romantic tracks also manage to steal a bit of limelight in the album.
The album starts with a “Gurbani”, soulfully rendered by Daler Mehndi to create a mood of peace.

“Zinda”, sung by multiple singers like Suhas Sawant, Raman Mahadevan, Mani Mahadevan and Siddharth Mahadevan, has an inspiring passion and intensity. The guitar riffs at the song’s beginning are impressive, while the background music along with tough lyrics make the song very encouraging. From hard rock music in the background, the song gradually takes a turn towards a soft, smooth melody.

“Maston ka jhund” has already become the favourite of many youngsters. With singer Divya Kumar crooning in the track, it can be easily tagged as a boys’ number. The beats are rhythmic and foot tapping.

Shortcut Romeo Movie Review

Cast: Neil Nitin Mukesh, Ameesha Patel, Puja Gupta, Rajesh Shringapure, Jatin Grewal

Direction: Susi Ganesh

Rating: 4 Stars

Shortcuts rarely pay off. The writer and director have translated one of the old Tamil movies “Thiruttu Payale into Hindi. The movie looks like a Hollywood infected desi thriller film where the characters speak and sing in Hindi. The suspense needs to more solid.

Shortcut Romeo takes too long to unveil a suspense you probably figure out midway. For a suspense thriller, that can be the biggest flaw.

Here is a short comparision between Short cut Romeo Vs Raanjhanaa

Raanjhanaa Review: Regressive Story with a romantic hero of a rare breed

Cast: Dhanush, Sonam Kapoor, Abhay Deol, Swara Bhaskar, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub

Director: Anand L Rai

Rating: Three and a half stars

Raanjhanna is a Romantic love story that does not fall within the confines of a dull Bollywood Romance.

A good show from everyone in the film and Dhanush projects excellence whenever he appears on the screen. Dhanush has got all the eyes of the watcher as a romantic hero in his Hindi debut and not with the look of a Bollywood Hero. Sonam Kapoor seems to have bettered her acting skills and she looks quite convincing before and after interval.

The dialogues have been sketched down soundly. Dialogues are convincing making the characters of the movie impressionable.

A.R. Rahman’s soundtrack is music to the ears and the film is rightly filled with song and dance sequences. The ones that are truly likeable are ‘Piya Milenge’, ‘Tum Tak’, the title track and ‘Tu Mun Shudi,’ which, by the way, is quite similar to ‘Dhakka Laga Bukka’ from Mani Ratnam’s ‘Yuva’.

Be it for its technical pros or for Dhanush’s Bollywood debut, ‘Raanjhanaa’ makes for a good watch this weekend.
