Aarakshan Review : Booring but an Engaging film. 2.5/5

AARAKSHAN is about Prabhakar Anand (Amitabh Bachchan), who has been the pillar of a private college in Bhopal for more than 30 years. The idealistic principal believes in merit, but at the same time is considerate towards poor students who can’t score great marks. Deepak who is immensely helped by Prabharkar, is in love with his daughter, Poorbi (Deepika Padukone). Sushant (Prateik) is a good friend of Poorbi and studies in the same college.

A comment in a newspaper on the Supreme Court’s order on reservation lands Prabhakar in a tough spot. He resigns from his post giving way to the scheming Mithilesh Singh (Manoj Bajpai), who’s part of the institute but concentrates more on his private coaching classes. Due to his evil plans, Prabhakar and his family are even forced to give up their home. Will Prabhakar be able to reclaim his life, is what ensues.

Based on the social issue of reservation, Prakash Jha’s AARARSHAN has its heart at the right place. But it takes so long to convey its message that you run out of patience. The first half, despite taking too long (two back-to-back songs) to get to the central plot, is pretty good. The conflicts between the characters make for a compelling watch. But after the interval, Prakash loses his grip as the narrative just drags. It becomes laborious and repetitive watch, with the story moving at a snail’s pace. The climax is too good to be true and fails to have a great impact.

Aarakshan tells an engaging story with very characters taken directly from the real life. Though the film is convincing,but the film is too long to bear..

Aarakshan works as a film that delivers a forceful message.

It is disappointing and a huge let down if in case the viewer is expecting an engaging conversation and a perspective on India’s reservation system.

RATINGS :- 2.5/5

The Crew:

Producers: Ashok Thakeria and Indra Kumar

Review:-

You certainly can’t expect anything less than double the fun from filmmaker Indra Kumar who’s had super hits like Dil, Beta, Ishq or even Dhamaal to his credit. In fact the title itself assures a doublewhammy. However, what it turns out to be is a shoddy show of lunacy. The film is complete slapstick no brainer and manages to make you laugh in very few places. In a bid to create humour the characters keep hollering on your ear drums consistently with their off-timed buffoonery making you wonder if certain things were even meant to be funny. The first half still manages to earn some guffaws but the predictability of the second makes it fall flat. Some scenes though do make you laugh specially the ones that have Jaaved Jaffery in it. He still as the lisp, retard is very likeable and funny. Even the comic scenes of Riteish and Satish Kaushik are good. But what mires them is the tripe and hackneyed plot which works on the clichéd formulas of slapstick comedies.

DD tries creating humour taking digs at other films like Taare Zameen Par, Shola and Guzaarish but falls flat in most cases. The mimicry of many actors like Shahrukh, Aamir, Sanjeev Kumar, Dharmendra etc is still funny.

Actors like Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi and Aashish Chawdhry fail in their comic timing. Riteish, Javed and Satish Kaushik are decent still. Kangna Ranaut is in bad make-up, bad hair and bad styling throughout the film. Moreover, it’s her surgically made-orange lipstick covered huge pout that worsens her appearance all the more. No improvement in dialogues too. Mallika doesn’t get much to do but covers up with her scintillating item song Jalebi Bai. Anand Raj Anand’s music is average with only Jalebi Bai standing out.

RATINGS:-

perfomances- Good

direction- Avearge

music – Average

OVER ALL RATINGS – 2.5 / 5 …….

OVERALL  IT  IS   STRICTLY  AN  AVERAGE  COMEDY   FILM   WITH  SILLY  PLOT  AND  GOOD   PERFOMANCES


X-Men: First Class Review :-X-Men: First Class is an entertaining film with good action and brilliant techniques.3/5

X men- the last stand

Rating: 3/5 stars

Star cast: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Kevin Bacon.

Plot: Mutants Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr take on the evil scientist, Sebastian Shaw, who wants to trigger a nuclear holocaust between Russia and the US.

What’s Good: The  screenplay; the well-IMPLEMENTED action sequences; the engaging drama in the second-half; superb technique.

What’s Bad: The performances could have been better; the love story in the filmfeels booring.

VerdictX-Men: First Class is an entertaining film which will do good business at the Indian box-office.

X-Men: First Class is the extension of the comic book story, where the story-writers (Sheldon Turner and Bryan Singer) have created back stories for the comic’s characters. While there are several references to real-life incidents (the World War II, the Cuban missile crisis, etc.), in order to add authenticity to the story, the plot primarily revolves around the relationship between Charles and Erik. As such, the other parallel stories (Shaw and his evil plans) or the love angle between Raven and another mutant, don’t really work. However, since the screenplay (by Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz, Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn) is racy and impactful, the viewer has little to complain about.

The sequences where the newly-discovered mutants are trained to control their special powers by Charles, as well as the climactic action scenes, are very well-executed. Fans of the X-Men franchise will definitely find the film a rewarding experience. Others, who are not familiar with the concept, will also find the film to be an engaging experience.

James McAvoy does well but he has been miscast in the role of Charles. Michael Fassbender is okay as Erik. Kevin Bacon does an average job is Shaw. Jennifer Lawrence (as Raven) acts well. Rose Byrne, January Jones (Emma Frost), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Lucas Till (Havok) and Oliver Platt (officer) fill the bill. Matthew Vaughn’s direction is effective as he manages to maintain the pace of the drama and choreograph the action sequences in an exciting manner to make the film engaging. Henry Jackman’s background score is appropriate. John Mathieson’s cinematography is very good. Visual effects are excellent. Editing, by Eddie Hamilton and Lee Smith, is fine.

overall,X-Men: First Class is an engaging and entertaining fare in spite of a few flaws in the story.

ratings-3/5


SHAITAN: MOVIE REVIEW:- 3/5 . It’s Disturbing BuT CATCHY AND PLEASANT.

Shaitan’ tells the story of five youngsters who are out to have a recklessly adventurous time but get involved in a botched crime. The film introduces 5 friends, Amrita/ Amy (Kalki Koechlin), Dushyant/ Dash (Shiv Pandit), Zubin (Neil Bhoopalam), Karan/ KC (Gulshan Devaiya) and Tanya Sharma (Kirti Kulhari). Apart from Dash, who works at a coffee shop, the rest belong to affluent families. So, like most rich and rotten teens their age, they party on yachts, get sloshed in fancy swimming pools, go cruising about town in Hummers and indulge in all those things you saw them doing in the promos.

Now a peculiar thing to note, which will be the cause of most unforeseen events in this film, is an unexplained and often misplaced flight of fury over the most trivial things. So, a guy is seen chatting up with Tanya and KC races to the scene and punches his face to pulp. KC loves Tanya? KC is protective? KC is seen kissing another girl in the very next scene! So, KC loves thrashing up people for fun? Also Amy’s warped childhood has a striking resemblance to the little kid in ‘The Ring’, who would draw different things with a black crayon and then strike them off ferociously. The only difference, that kid was possessed and Amy is, well, clinically depressed.

The crux of this story is an accident resulting out of road rage that thrust our fearless five-some to resort to extreme cover-up measures. And trying to uncover their ugly truth, is Inspector ArvindMathur (Rajeev Khandelwal) who is as angry as he is suspended. But well aware of how nasty criminals have succumbed to his unparalleled wrath in the past, the police commissioner (Pawan Malhotra) summons him to a case of national importance.

He is assisted by obedient and righteous cop (Nikhil Chinappa). Shaitan unabashedly brings in a feast potpourri of emotions, sex, cynicism, danger, drugs suppressed for long in the commercially and socially normative Hindi cinema.

Music is average while talk of the acting and all the five actors Kalki, Shiv, Gulshan, Neil and Kirti leave you in awe.

overall, Shaitan is blatant, unabashed and impishly pleasing. A must watch for its devilish excellence and cinematic brilliant.

It’s Disturbing BUT CATCHY AND PLEASANT.

RATINGS:-3/5


Music Review: ‘Delhi Belly’ album IS experimental

Composer Ram Sampath was in news once for the infamous Krazzy Four title song controversy with Rakesh Roshan and people in the industry told that ram will never be able to work in Bollywood again. But he is kicking those who told this nonsense. He gave a youthful kind of track in Luv ka The End which was pretty contemporary but with Delhi Belly Ram Sampath scores a home-run. Really his score in the movie Delhi Belly is very experimental with the compositions he has created, the song D.K. Bose has already become the new anthem for the youth and can be heard anywhere in colleges or school. People are just humming this song.

But the album is surely not just one song based, all the songs are really cool and Ram has been very experimental with tunes and the lyrics are way too funny and will create waves. Lyrics have been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya and he too seems to have broken all the shackles and seriously the music of this movie will be a high point in the coming weeks and will help gain popularity for the movie.

The album has10 tracks and all of the 10 are very different from each other. The songs have one thing in common; some really uncommon and unconventional musicstyle and some absurd yet really cool lyrics.

On the whole, the music in the album is pretty much very unusual, and you may have never heard such songs, the lyrics are so funny, yet have a meaning and it is used very refreshingly. So by far themusic is very far from what you called typical Bollywood songs and surely this album breaks the monotony which has plagued the Bollywood music industry. It’s a very nice break and a verry experimental one to say the least. This album soon will be topping all the charts that’s for sure and surely will be grabbing attention from lame TV news channels (TV news issnme Penchar waal link daalna).

My favorite of the lot surely is Bhaag D K Bose.On the whole, the music is unusual, breaks monotony and is far from being typical
