A Romantic Action Thriller - Kurbaan


Friday, January 20th, 2012

Movie: Kurbaan
Director: Rensil D’silva
Year: 2009
Stars: Saif Ali Khan, Kareena kapoor, Vivek Oberoi, Om Puri and Kiron Kher

Snapshot of the Story

Kurbaan is story of a terrorist group that plays the bloody game of extreme terrorism in the USA. Story seems to be inspired from post-9/11 attack on twin towers. Saif Ali Khan is a wanted terrorist and part of a terrorist group planning a series of attacks. A love story runs alongside with this intense and sensitive issue and has been beautifully directed. Music director Salim Sulaiman gave Sufiyana (traditional music from the middle east) music to the movie that was praised by all the critics and loved by the audience.

Storyline

Avantika (played by Kareena Kapoor) works in USA as a lecturer, but looses her job. She comes back to Delhi and starts working as a lecturer in a local college, there she meets Ehsaan (played by Saif Ali Khan) and as fellow lecturer both get attracted towards each other and love blossoms between them. Now Avantika gets a call from the same College to rejoin and both fly to USA.

Just when you think that everything was going rosy as romance of Avantika and Ehsaan is at it’s peak the story takes an unpredictable turn. Avantika comes to know that the bomb blast that took place in the New York subway was planned and executed by Ehsaan and his group. Avantika is shocked and is in a disarray knowing the fact that her husband is a terrorist on the other hand Ehsaan and his group are planning for another bomb in an aeroplane. Avanrika seeks help of Riyaaz (Vivek Oberoi) and infiltrates the gang to break off this deadly plan.

At times as an audience you will be wondering and can’t decide whether it addresses the issue of terrorism or showing terrorism for commercial benefits. There are many flaws in the movie, e.g. we all know that America become a different country post-9/11 when it comes to security and on other side you see Ehsaan a wanted terrorist roaming freely on the streets of New York which is hard to believe. With all these hiccups Kurbaan is an engaging story that works well and give you a lot of nail biting moments.

Director Rensil D’silva made a confident start to Indian cinema with great camera work of Hemant Chaturvedi and great music of duo Salim-Sulaiman that sounded flawless. The onscreen chemistry of Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan was fantastic as they share the great off screen bonding in actual life. The veteran actor Om Puri in the role of Khalu Jaan looked like a perfect cast.

Rating

Kurbaan scores 7 out 10 for handling the burning issue of terrorism so gracefully. Director Rensil D’silva made an impressive start in Bollywood.

Snapshot of the Story

Biwi No. 1 is a typical David Dhawan comedy movie. Story starts as Prem living a happy life with his wife Pooja (Karishma Kapoor) and two young and sweet children. Prem is a flamboyant, complete flirt and looks for beautiful ladies to have affair with. Rupali (Sushmita Sen) is an aspirant model looking for her first break in modeling world. Prem and Rupali becomes entangled in an extra marital affair. This sensitive topic has been shot from a comical angle, which is the signature style of David Dhawan.

Storyline

Prem (Salman Khan) is a well settled professional living a life in a leading fashion house and has a beautiful wife Pooja (Kashmira Kapoor). The nature of the job is such that Prem is surrounded with beautiful girls and always looking for an opportunity to get friendly with them. Rupali (Sushmita Sen) is an aspirant model working with Prem and during their outdoor assignment they come close and starts getting to know each other. Prem is a flirt by nature and induces a soft corner in Rupali’s heart.

Pooja comes to know about all this and asks him to choose one out of them and Prem choose Rupali. Heartbroken Pooja decides to teach him a lesson and team up with Prem’s friend Lakkhan (Anil Kapoor). This is the most interesting part of the movie as how Pooja becomes the model and uses the Tip for Tat formula.

Story of the movie is very entertaining and the comical timing of Anil Kapoor was fantastic. It is the class of the David Dhawan who creates such an intense topic beautifully sandwiched with comedy. David Dhawan is one the very few directors in Indian cinema who create humor out of any situation. Teaming up with Govinda he has created many comedy hit likes Rajababu, Coolie No.1, Saajan Chale Sasural and the list goes on and on.

Biwi No. 1 was the hit movie of 1999 and bagged many Filmfare awards. Both Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor got the award for the best actor in comic role, Karishma got the award for the best actress and so did David Dhawan who also got the award for the best director.

Final Thoughts

Biwi no. 1 is a comedy movie based on an intense plot of an extra marital affair, but as an audience you will never feel this when watching the movie and this is what David Dhawan is well known for. He is master of comedy movies for the Indian silver cinema. Karishma Kapoor looks beautiful as ever and got a promising role that she acted with so much of ease. Salman Khan got the role in which he feels comfortable and at times you feel that he is over acting. Anil Kapoor plays a good supporting hand and one cannot think of anybody else in his role.

Rating
Biwi No. 1 scores 8 out of 10 for its great direction, compelling story narration, good music and ability to engage the audience for two and half hours with relative ease.

Don 2 - Farhan Akhtar Missed the Trick


Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Movie: Don 2
Director: Farhan Akhtar
Year: 2011
Stars: Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Om Puri, Lara Datta, Florian Likas and Kunal Kapoor

Snapshot of the Story

Thrilling fight scene, smashing car chases, boats blown up in the air with smoke every where and a plot based around robbery inspired from the movie “Ocean 11” and “Mission Impossible” the movie Don 2 tries to re-create the same magic as it created in 2006 with remake of original Don in 1978 starting Amitabh Bachchan. Shahrukh Khan is in the role of flamboyant criminal named “Don”, planning a bank robbery and looking for a safe escape from there.

Movie review and ratings of most awaited movie of 2011 -Don 2


Storyline

Don 2 is an action packed film and pre-release interviews of Farhan Akhtar suggested that one should not watch this movie with expectations apart from action and thrill, but after watching the movie I felt let down and has nothing much that excites the audience apart from random car chasing scenes.

Story of Don 2 revolves around a bank robbery by Don (Shahrukh Khan) and for this he takes help of his friend or should call him enemy Vardhan (Boman Irani) who is in a Malaysian jail and escapes with help from Don. Don (Shahrukh Khan) creates a plan to get out of jail along with Vardhan (Boman Irani) and creates a master plan of bank robbery. Kunal Kapoor plays the role of a hacker that helps them to break into the security system of the bank and is picked for this assignment. Lara Datta plays the role of Don’s girlfriend and proves that the old saying “Beauty with Brain” is actually true.

Om Puri plays the role of Interpol chief and Priyanka Chopra as Roma is an Interpol investigating officer that carries old rivalry with Don (Shahrukh Khan). Movie “Don 2”
entertains you in the first half and has some good action scenes but as soon as the story enters into the second half the story looses its grip with the audience. “Don 2” in the second half is a bit slow and has nothing much to offer other than the predictable robbery and Don’s escape.

Movie Reviews and Ratings of Don 2


Director Farhan Akhtar has written some good Donism for “Don 2” that show he lives Don unlike any one else and expresses this in his personal interview with Farhan Akhtar where he said that the original Don in 1978 was a life changing movie for him.

Final Thoughts

Director Farhan Akhtar has worked well on the script but could not create the movie with the same intensity as one had expected. Shahrukh Khan was good in the movie and was good in action scenes but he was bit boring at times and I am sure his fans would think the same. Priyanka Chopra was good with her share of action scenes and looked natural. Kunal Kapoor fits well for the role of young computer hacker. There is no room for hit music in this movie and looks like Farhan Akhtar missed the trick here. Unfortunately, the producers worked more on the hype than to bring about a movie that excelled the original.

Rating
We give “Don 2” 6 out of 10, “Don 2” was the most awaited movie of 2011 and expectations were high but the audience gets nothing much apart from few good action scenes. The whole second half of the movie was slow and tiring to watch.

Ishqiya - Making Headlines with Bold Dialogues


Saturday, January 7th, 2012

Movie: Ishqiya (love)
Director: Abhishek Chaubey
Year: 2010
Stars: Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi, Vidya Balan and Salman Shahid

Snapshot of the Story

Ishqiya is about two thieves Khalujaan (Naseeruddin Shah) and Babban (Arshad Warsi) running away with money from their boss. In this situation they feel that the only secure place to hide is their friend’s home, but finds out that he is dead. Krishan (Vidya Balan) playing the role of widow takes not time and gives them a place to hide. Story flows with a lot of convolutions and engage audience until the very last minute. Debutant director Abhishek Chaubey did a fantastic job as director of this movie.

Storyline

Story of the flick starts with Krishna (played by Vidya Balan) convincing her hubby Vidyadhar, who is a local gang-leader to surrender to police. He pretends to agree, but dramatically dies in a gas explosion. Now Krishna is living a life of a widow, then enters in the movie a team of two criminals Iftikhar aka Khalujan (played by Naseeruddin Shah) and Razzak Hussain aka Babban (played by Arshad Warsi). Both of them ditch their job and try to escape from their boss who wants to catch them and bury them alive.

The duo land up in Vidyadhar’s house to seek refuge from there, the boss comes to learn that Vidyadhar is dead, Krishna gives them shelter and starts seducing both of them and pretends to be in love with both of them to achieve her secret goal. Khalujan and Babban also fall to her trap, but don’t express their feelings either to Krishna or each other. The intimate scene between Vidya Balan and Arshad Warsi made a lot of controversies before the release. Krishna proposes both of them to kidnap Kamalkant Kakkar aka KK, partner of Vidyadhar in his illegal job. Story takes an interesting twist and turn when all of them come to know that Vidyadhar is still alive.

Last one hour of the movie is full of drama. Babban and Khalujan were blindfolded by the Vidyadhar’s men and taken to get killed, they manage to escape from there, and this fight sequence is ordinary and reminds us of the 90’s era. Finally, Vidyadhar gets killed and the trio has the last laugh.

Final Thoughts

Ishqiya is one time watch movie and does not have enough fire power to attract the audience for a second showing. It has an average story and except for some of the scene are very funny and has some vulgar dialogs. Highlight of the movie is Vidya Balan and her abusive dialogs which she does with ease and perfection. Naseeruddin Shah was fantastic as Khalujan and so did Arshan Warsi. Director Abhishek Chaubey did a fantastic job and made a fantastic first movie as debutant. Lyricist Gulzar good song and “Dil to Baccha Hai ji” and “Ibn-E-Batuta” were both chart toppers for months.

Rating

Ishqiya scores 6 out of 10 for its dialogs and Vidya Balan’s performance that many leading actress would not think of doing onscreen. Songs written by Gulzar and sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan gave it extra mileage.

Ranbeer Singh the Con Man in Ladies V/s Ricky Bahl


Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Movie: Ladies V/s Ricky Bahl
Director: Maneesh Sharma
Year: 2011
Stars: Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Parineeti Chopra, Dipannita Sharma and Aditi Sharma

Snapshot of the story

“Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl” is another movie from the team of “Band Baja Baarat” however it fails to create the same magic as the previous movie. “Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl” is a story of a con man who cons the girls in different instances in disguises of Sunny, Dev, Iqbal. He has conned many girls amongst whom three form a team to take revenge. They hire Ishika (played by Anushka Sharma) as a millionairess girl to con Ricky. The plot of the story is well set in the first half.

Movie review and ratings of Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl


Storyline

“Ladies v/s Rick Bahl” is a story of a guy named Ricky (played by Ranveer Singh) who con girls, sometimes with his charm and sometimes with his cleverness and whatever works best for him. He cons three girls named Saira (played by Aditi Sharma), Dimpy (played by Parineeti Chopra) and Raina (played by Dipannita Sharma) who team up to get even with him.

Ishita pretends to be millionairess girl and wants to start a hotel in Goa. Anushka Sharma looked good in the movie but does not have much part in the movie. Her role is very short as the director Maneesh Sharma introduces her in the second half. First half of the movie is interesting as it dishes out fresh content. Ranbeer Kapoor looks good in the movie and looks like he started where he left in “Band Baja Baarat”. Second half of the movie is quite predictable and the story looses it’s charm as it moves to the climax.

The story has the final twist in the tale where the trio thinks that they have fooled Ricky and have robbed a thief but later comes to know that this is again a con Ricky had setup for them.

Final Thoughts

Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl does not prove to be good for anyone except Parineeta Chopra as Dimple in the movie. She was good in the movie and her comic timing was very good. Ranbeer Kapoor would not gain anything from this and so does Anushka Sharma. Director Maneesh Sharma did a good job but failed to create charm in the same way as he did in “Band Baja Baarat”. Even the music of the movie did not give it an extra zing where needed.

Rating

“Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl” scores 6 out of 10 not because of the weak storyline but failed to live up to the good story that it promised in the first half.
