Singh Saab The Great: A sensible action movie.


What’s good: Sunnyji’s captivating actingand exuberant look and Prakash Raj as villain.

What’s Bad: Tacky camera work and tedious second half.

Loo Breaks: Few.
Watch It or Not: SSTG being Bollywood action film, brings along unbelievable and over-the-top stunts but if you can cope up with it, the thoughtful part fills and grows with time.

Lets take a quick tour of some aspects of the film.
Script, Direction & Music:
This film doesn’t bring up the greatest story/script with it but one can sense fair amount of effort by Shaktimaan Talwar. A glimpse into the Bollywood world will tell you a pattern of films against Bhrastachar-Corruption is rapidly increasing. The screenplay has its up and downs at moments but it really soars up in some fragments.
Director Anil Sharma amplifies the some scenes with no reason. It flows and moves with a different uniqueness but doesn’t make any impact in the second half. Overall the director’s work is quite appreciated.
At no point the soundtracks are effecting. Most of the times they seem forced into the film. Only the title song is the amusement from the whole music album.
Acting Analysis:
Sunny Deol- The man with the Iron Fists, is back into action. His character always offered both- a man filled with rage, to take revenge and a man with wisdom. He has flourished and raised the bar of the film to a very different level.
Prakash Raj is predictable throughout the 2 and half hours, but clear and precise at the same time. As we know of him, he always plays the role of a villain, which an actor of his caliber should rethink about. His dialogue delivery makes the film worthful.
Amrita Rao is average so is Urvashi Rautela. But Urvashi Rautela has shown a bit of talent in her acting. 

The Final Word:
In these times, you can say confidently that action films in India are just an entourage trying kill each other, but this film makes the statement wrong. Despite all the over the top stunts director Anil Sharma keeps the message straight. It is way better than other mediocre action films. It truly astonishes you and you walk out the exit door amused and satisfied. Just because of the warm acting and good screenplay, I’m going with a 4/5.


Raktyug: A fine effort


The trailer of the film was pretty mediocre as I thought the movie would be. But had heard a lot about filmmaker Sidhesh Borkar and couldn’t resist watching it. After all, this was the first Goan film I was going to watch. Amidst of these thoughts, I was exhilarated to watch this film. Its good to see that political thrillers have too elevated with time, and that filmmakers and audience have gradually shifted their gaze from Rom-com to some innovative ideas.

Direction & Screenplay: The movie uses a layman method to reach out its message to the public, which is one of the plus point in this film. Director Sidhesh Borkar though tacky, does a pretty fair job to present the story in an elegant and tasteful manner. He has put all the necessary elements and kept the duration only 2 hours. This is something many directors fail to achieve. The Screenplay too has its moments, but fails to make an impact. Going with its flow, there are few scenes where the background music plays and the characters seem to have dialogues, and apparently it is mood dampening.

Acting & Music: Vardhan Kamat is perhaps the charismatic character in the film. He is solemn in his role, which becomes one of the strongest highlight points. Khushboo Kawlekar, Sneha Rivankar and Bhavesh Fulari make the cast strong through their acting. Satish Gaonkar and Vijaykumar Kamat too are good in parts. Lyrics by Sidhesh Sir are very pure, the music too is a treat to the ears. Soundtrack ‘Ailo tu’ topples the rest.

The Final Word:The film includes a good conspiracy, some heart touching emotional moments and over all it talks about friendship and unity at its highest levels. It is entertaining, well executed and a story with a message. This is a movie which is produced in an era where the biggies are becoming unusually predictable, here is an innovative movie. As Sidhesh Borkar tries his hand with this movie, I am going with 3.5/5

‘The Leader Who Had No Title’- A memorable novel to remember


‘m feeling tensed while writing this review, after reading this amazing book by Robin Sharma. He really has his way of storytelling. This book not only amuses you with a great story but also gives a fascinating way of truly living a life, of leading without a title.
The story begins with a former military man(Blake) working at a bookstore, who has lost everything and everyone. It gets hard for him to concentrate and work for a long time. He is not living a balanced life, that’s when a man who has won award of Employee of the Year for consecutive 5 years visits the bookstore and gives him Introduction about the LWT philosophy. He convinces Blake that he can be a leader without a title and should meet the four teachers who will reveal the four principles of LWT philosophy to him. 
Robin Sharma has written this awe-inspiring novel which involves everything that makes a story complete. The emotional moment at the end is quite heartbreaking but he has transformed that into a message that we should take into consideration, in a way-follow it in our lives. Though it starts well in the beginning , it kind of holds off in the middle, but read it as for that moment of exhilaration after completing it. Read it to test yourself. Read it for what Robin Sharma has kept you in it. 
Beautiful Novel Handsomely Written. No wonder why he is one of the BESTSELLERS. I’d go with 4.5/5

That Day After Every Day: The best documentary till date


We think of documentaries or short films as some low budget, not well executed and there is a belief, which people actually believe 😀 😛  that they do not emphasize on good topics and have no screenplay. Well, let me tell you, rather assure you, that this documentary lives up to the expectation giving people hope for our bright future.

For starters, i wouldn’t call this a documentary, but a revolution among people, more on the part of women, which will determine the quality of coming ages.

First of all, the plot of the documentary is quite similar of what has happened increasingly in the country( going on) for the past year. Torture, Harassment and Abuse!!

Society tends to “pull your legs” when you’re trying to do something good and the exact thought is shown in the opening scene. A girl completes her work in the kitchen and heads off to work. She and her friends are walking on the streets and some guys try to abuse her, somehow she escapes. She then meet her friends the next day and they tell her that one man was touching or pushing her, she waited and for the third time she swung her arm towards “there”. That night they encounter the same problem and those three women fight about five to six guys.

We learn many things from this documentary:

a) The thing we fear, is the fear itself.

b) We should change our beliefs about women, we should make that “environment” where our sisters can walk freely, not only women, but we are the only key to our security.

c) The great thing about this one is that it doesn’t try to tell you the solution or promise anything.

There are many more things but, this is something that we as individuals should determine what we want from it the most.

The direction by Anurag Kashyap is awesome, no doubt he is one of the good directors of Bollywood. The screenplay through dialogues doesn’t cover the whole story but it is acting which makes way straight to your heart. The cinematography is good, considering it is a documentary.

The final Word: Through this documentary Anurag Kashyap shows the brighter side of the consequences of the actions taken by the women in the society and to what effect. This should not be seen as a documentary but an educational footage for both men and women. It goes hand in hand with the reality. And I’d highly recommend this to those who seek to change in their lives and in the society. The way things dramatically move, I’d go with 4.5/5

Krrish 3 didn’t make the same mistakes as RaOne


Ok, i was wrong, i mean totally wrong about Krrish 3. It got mixed reviews and also my cousin was asking me accompany to him, so i thought, what the hell?? !! GO FOR IT. I went in 25 minutes late, Yeah i did, and huh, it just grew on me with time, i swear to God, I’m admitting it now, it is good.
Lets start with the story, i hate to confirm it again but it was good, if you have seen the whole X-Men Series till now, you’ll find it identical but the way they have developed the story, the way they have put emotions, in it is awesome though Priyanka Chopra was overreacting in every situation and one they did one good thing, that many emotional scenes didn’t involve Prinyanka Chopra.
Anyway we move to the next aspects i.e. Directing, Acting, Music & Effects on screen. Well, talking about directing, I think Director, Writer, Producer and the father of the main character in the movie 😛 Rakesh Roshan has done splendidly good in this movie, there were some loo breaks, but he made them look faded with his skill.
Acting: As a main character Rohit, Krrishna and Krrish, Hritik Roshan has seems to have done taken his homework pretty seriously. He very good especially in that scene when he gets the news that his child is no more. He wasn’t just acting, he made it more look like tragedy with him. He was perfect as Rohit(father), good as Krishna(son) not so perfect as (Husband) and strong as Krrish(superhero)
Kangana Ranaut: Huh, she has done a fabulous work, after all she had an important role to play in the movie. This is her first role i have actually liked.
Vivek Oberoi: As many as people around to criticize him, he has slapped them in the face. This act of his is untouchabble (not so well in the end).
Prinyanka Chopra: (Refer the first paragraph.) I don’t wanna talk about it. It wasn’t that bad, but she being around in the movie makes me sick.
Music, choreography, Special Effects and photography:
The Music: Well, you’ve been listening to it since the music launch. No great story to tell, however, they do not seem to be forced in the movie. Choreography in Raghupati Raghav looked good, really awesome. In Dil Tu hi Baata, it was average performance, since on one in the audience gave crap about it when they saw Hritik’s fit body and Rangana’s magic. When God Allah Aur Bhagwan started, i went out for a little break, didn’t even bother to listen to it.
The Special Effects as expected after the trailer weren’t full of life, which keeps the audience unsatisfied. Also, it was because Rakesh Roshan didn’t use Foreign Softwares while filming the movie. But Photography, has shown its true essence after not-so-good Special Effects.
The Last Word: The film shares the similar basic plot as X-Men, but and even if you are a Hollywood Film Lover, don’t compare the latter with the X-Men. We, Indians lack in appreciating good FILMS and thus fail to climb the ladder to reach the next level. Anyways, I’d recommend this family entertainer to every Bollywood film lover.
The movie has done very well to cover as much as possible but it lacks in few key areas.
I’d go with 3.5/5
