The sequel is made on the similar lines as we have seen in the first part wherein a lover goes to the rescue of his girlfriend from the lethal den of the man in a negative role. This time we have a new set up, new action, new drama and all together a new backdrop, which will give you a new. Tiger in his character of a boyfriend who is based outside India gets a jolt when his love interest is kidnapped by someone from the opposite party, he then rescues in style and high action drama. For more you can catch the film in the nearest cinema.

Review

When Tiger joined the bandwagon of B Town, he simply changed the trend in the B Town. The four movies he did so far in the B Town, we could see at the core with things like dance and action. Though he failed to be among the favorable star ratings by a majority of critics for his acting skills but he scored high for his action and dancing skill sets. So unlike his previous movies, the sequel has similar stuff. He is good in his dancing and action performances in the movie but lags behind in his acting other aspects of his performance. The story has fair amount of similarities unlike seen in the prequel with the change in location and action that seemed too aggressive.

Now talking about Disha Patani, she seemed to be kept to add the glamor element while talking about her acting and other skills she seemed average. The other actors like Manor and others had some good piece of performances. Now talking about the other aspects, the film has done well at the music and other levels including screenplay, songs and dance to a great extent direction and filmmaking as well. The other aspects including the technical aspects like editing and others remained okay and has somehow helped to boost up the entertainment value to a great extent.

Baaghi 2 – The Last Word

The film has much to deal with fierce action and cool dancing skills. However, it has no novelty in terms of story and plot. It can be called as an extension to the previous film in terms of story and plot along with an attempt to give something different.

Kedarnath Movie

Stellar performance of debutante Sara with strong visual effects make the film a must watch this weekend

  • Movie – Kedarnath
  • Director – Abhishek Kapoor
  • Star cast – Sushant Singh Rajput, Sara Ali Khan, Nitish Bharadwaj, Alka Amin, and Sonali Sachdev
  • Producer – Ronnie Screwvala, Pragya Kapoor and Abhishek Kapoor
  • Production Studio – RSVP Movies and Guy in the Sky Pictures
  • Genre – Romance, drama
  • Writer – Abhishek Kapoor and Kanika Dhillon
  • Rating – 3.5/5

Plot

Meet Sushant Singh Rajput a young Muslim porter called Mansoor at Kedarnath who while taking Mandakini aka Mukku played by Sara Ali Khan fall in love. The girl is young and feisty who lives in Kedarnath with her family. She is the daughter of Nitish Bharadwaj who happens to be a local priest. So, when the couple falls in love with each other, things turn sour and complicated. Though one may find the story of the inter-faith romance remains the core of the film, it also deals with the natural calamity waiting to happen in the form of floods. The couple survives proving their love against nature’s wrath. So, what goes next would be interesting to catch in the nearby theatres.

Review

The film though showcases a similar kind of love story, but adding the natural calamity that devastated the state around Kednarth in Uttarakhand in the year 2013 seems to make the story different. The screenplay, therefore, has its own good and bad points but the kind of drama and love showed in the film in the backdrop of the catastrophe seems interesting. The incredible drone-assisted photography has given things perfect allowing the audience to enjoy the picturesque locations getting the artistic and crisp visuals. The story by the director and Kanika tangibly showcases the secular fabric of the country where even Muslim porters respect and honour the pilgrims coming to the temple of Hindu and other communities. Also, the makers have touched the commercial aspect of this place, which has hampered the ecological balance of this place by building hotels and malls for tourists attraction.

However, the focus remains precisely over the love story, and we see some of the best moments shared by the couple in a beautiful environment becoming a treat to our eyes. Now talking about performances, Sara Ali Khan is just a live wire and somewhere refreshes her mom’s roles in movies like Chameli Ki Shaadi and Betab. Despite her first film, she was incredible in her performance and has given the best over the silver screen. In fact, she went on to overshadow the performance of Sushant Singh Rajput in many ways. Sushant however, has given a decent performance and perhaps gave the lady more opportunities to perform well over her debut venture. Otherwise, we have seen the actor giving some of his incredible performances over the silver screen. The music, the song and other elements too went smoothly for the movie helping to gain a good entertainment value. The story though remained predictable, but the way it has remained under the water makes all the difference.

Kedarnath the last word
The way the film was made and executed along with the stellar performance of Sara has created the film float. It can be a good weekend watch if you want to give a fair chance to Sara Ali Khan to be an emerging Diva of B Town. The story though remains predictable but adding the natural calamity with water has made all the difference.

You find loads of mess just to entertain the audience. So, what really goes inside the film can be easily caught in the nearby cinema.
Review 

The story of the film keeps you intrigued and entertained. Though one may find the film drags a big but thanks to the interesting core story, things become a visual treat for the audience. Yet in many ways the plot of the film remains predictable and very much predictable. The first half gives a feeling of a generic horror film but it come along with an interesting visual effects and catching the same in 3D would be be treat to your eyes. The massive clash between Chitti and the giant bird is interesting to catch and yes do not miss the cool dialogues and cool song picturisation also makes a huge difference.
Now, talking about the performances, we know action speaks louder than words and same is the case with Rajinikanth. For him age is just a number which is why even at the age of 67 he is incredible in his performance. It seems that the actor has given his everything to play the characters he has in the film particularly of Chitti Reloaded. The fans of Akshay Kumar too has to celebrate. Despite having limited screen space he seemed impressive over the silver screen with his incredible performance.
He was quick with his quirky antics in the film and nailed with his emotional connect with his role. Amy Jackson playing the robot is also a treat to our eyes. Adil Hussain in supporting role too was okay as he did not get too much time to prove his presence.The other elements like VFX effects, direction and editing along with technical stuff seemed okay. The music by A R Rahman was simply incredible.

2.0 Movie The Last Word 

With all said and done, the film 2.0 is a completely entertainment package, which come along with pleasing VFX effects and many more things that can entertain you the fullest. While catching the film, make sure you watch in 3D to enjoy the fullest.

Thugs Of Hindostan Review

 

  • Movie – Thugs of Hindostan
  • Director- Vijay Krishna Acharya
  • Starcast- Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Fatima Sana Shaikh
  • Producer – Aditya Chopra
  • Production Studio – Yash Raj Films
  • Music – Ajay-Atul
  • Cinematography – Manush Nandan
  • Rating – 3.5
  • Plot

The film deals with a historical fiction story, which is made at the backdrop of 18th century. This was the time when the entire Indian subcontinent was called Hindostan, while the Indian bandits were called as Thugs  and these posed a serious threat to British East India Company that was expanding its base getting a large parts of India. On the other side you will find a band of Thugs, which is led by Khudabaksh Azaad played by Amitabh Bachchan, who remain a grave threat to the East India Company as he aspires to make the country free from the British. The British led by John Clive (played by Lloyd Owen), a British commander, sends a man Firangi Mallah (played by Aamir Khan who happens to be a small-time Thug from Awadh) with the mission to infiltrate and to make him weak. So, what goes next is worth exploring in the nearby cinema.

Thugs of Hindostan Review

The film has everything one aspires to catch during the festive season – action, adventure and fantasy, which justifies to be a big-ticket film. This gives the Indian avatar of ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’, to the audience giving them a novel experience. The film proves out to be a big-budget entertainer but it will fail give the same thrills we see in the named Hollywood film. However, with lacklustre writing, stalwarts with great performances and many more elements it has the potential to do big business. On the other side, the film carries a couple of factual errors taking too much of liberty in the film in the name of fantasy.Thugs of Hindostan

The other dismaying factor is the music given by the talented duo music director as it fails to tune up to the narrative. Talking about the performances, Aamir and Big B have been incredible, while the rest of the crew including Fatima and Katrina Kaif too remained par surpassing the expectations of the audience. Aamir has also helped the audience with his humor and physical strength while Big B remains the no-nonsense person with intense dialogues. The duo is way ahead then the other two. The action scenes of Fatima Sana Shaikh remained affected with some bad choreographed action sequences. The loads of special and VFX effects have also added a lot to the entertainment value.

Thugs of Hindostan – The Last Word

Although the film may lag behind in something or the other, but in terms of action and performance along with interesting story line and special effects, it has much to deliver. The highly expensive movie can be a worthy catch this weekend getting a decent rating.Thugs of Hindostan
