PK (2014)

Aamir – Hirani partnership has worked out well again!. After the mass success of 3 Idiots, the duo has joined together and delivered a very brave attempt as PK.

I feel the movie is so apt of the moment; where we see a lot of looting and cheating in the name of gods. We Indians are oversensitive about our religious feelings and sometimes so blind on the faith in god., and that’s why we see new-new godmen/women popping out at every corner of the nation, crawling out for money.

Hirani has quirkily riveted our ignorance through a character of an alien – PK. A very serious topic is delivered yet again in a most comical and colloquial manner. Aamir as the alien – PK., has completely capture the audience. Anushka as a TV reporter helps PK – to fight against a fraud godmen. Sanjay Dutt and  Boman Irani has played some cameo.

The message of the movie is very strong, but the screenplay is not so strong. Especially the 2nd half slows down a lot and feels like a TV serial. But it’s that single man – Aamir consistently keeps you awake and ensures “All is well” for Hirani. Truly, this is one of the best performances of Amair, and undoubtedly one of the good films of the year.

Happy New Year: Movie Review

I know this review is very late, but I thought it's worth sharing (saving indeed :) ) for those who are still planning to watch.

I read it as an Action-Comedy genre of movie. Sadly, there’s no action nor a single bit of comedy L. Farah Khan has never made a great film, but with SRK and Deepika, I was expecting at least a little decent entertainer like “Om Shanti Om”, but this “Happy New Year” was a total disaster. Never believe the Box office numbers and hyped reviews!

Coming to the plot, this is a story of SRK, who is striving hard to take revenge for his father’s death, makes a team – with Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani,Vivan Shah, and Deepika Padukone.  All of these five are super talented (? :P)  in their field and their captain SRK would reach his goal of burgularing the villain’s (Jackie Sheroff) diamond with his team. How they meet, plan and destroy the enemy is the story all about.

Frankly speaking the movie "Happy New Year" is not at all worth to watch on Big Screen ; Not in TV too, anyway, it’ll come on television in another one month or so. Friends, never waste your time and money on this non-sense movie. We should flop such movies otherwise they will dare again and make some more in the future.

Wake Up Sid !

Wake up Pon !!!. It’s been a looooongtime you entered this page.

Yeah, I woke up… with a plot of “Wake up Sid”.

Okay.. Okay.. I know, it’s too late to write about this film…but is there a timeline to appreciate a good cinema? .. After a long time, I could smell some fresh air.. a good movie..

The story is about a guy Sid (Ranbir Kapoor), son of a rich businessman (Anupam Kher), who is seen struggling to make a choice between video games and financial accounting on the eve of the final exam ; who believes in enjoying the life at the fullest..

Ayesha Banerjee (Konkona Sen), Bold,independent and outspoken girl from Bengal, meets Sid at a party.Small favors by Sid makes him liked by Ayesha, who reiterates from time to time that they are "just" friends. Ayesha got herself a job at Mumbai Beat, a city based magazine as the assistant of the Editor-in-Chief.

Sid leads his own lifestyle with friends and parties, until he fails miserably in his exams while his friends get through. A sound warning and hard talk by his dad makes Sid wild and he storms out of the house. He moves in with Ayesha as a room partner. Sid, with the help of Ayesha lands the job of a photographer at the same magazine, where he discovers his true talent.

A brief period of Sid dating Tanya is thrown in as the parallel track to Kabir (Edit-in-Chief) dating Ayesha. As his dad asks him to come home, Sid leaves Ayesha, without realizing that Ayesha has fallen in love with him. What happens after that is… you might’ve seen in millions of Indian movies.

I really liked the freshness of the movie.. the characters were so natural.. just one of us.. no typical dialogues.. songs were placed very well..Great acting by Konkana. Ranbir looks impressive.

So, overall, the movie was pretty good, intact, I loved it… good storyline,good narration, good music, good acting, good direction & editing.. what more do you need from a movie..?

I would rate it 7 out of 10.
