True Grit- Movie Review


I went for this movie thinking it’d be one of those dramas I’d need a lot of concentration watching. Well, I did need a lot of concentration to watch it indeed. Reason? Aage padho!

The movie in short is about how a young girl (Hailee Steinfeld) along with a tough U.S. Marshal (Jeff Bridges) and a Texas ranger (Matt Damon) sets out to find her father’s murderer.

Wild wild west! It’s one of those movies which need your concentration because of the old western accent especially Jeff Bridges’s. Starting mein Jeff Bridges has this scene where he’s in the courtroom. I didn’t understand anything! Subtitles would’ve helped in that case! And the girl reminded me of Tom Hanks for some reason. I wonder if anyone else thought the same.

Other than that, there are great performances, a very real setting which will make you go back to the 1800s, a simple and sweet story and some great shots! Apart from all the good stuff, I thought the movie was a little long and could have been edited better. I understand it’s supposed to be a journey but it just felt a little long-ish.

Otherwise, True Grit as a movie was nice. Worth watching once for sure.

Tron Legacy- Movie Review


I didn’t wanna watch this movie at all…but…ab dekh liya toh dekh liya!

Tron Legacy is about how this young, cute looking dude goes into a digital gaming world his father had created some 20 years ago. After going there, he finds his father trapped and so tries to get him out of there but realizes that there’s an evil man who can also get out and cause a lot of damage to the real world. So it’s about how the dude tries to win and get back home.

Let me tell you from first only that I’m not an action movie fan, especially sci-fi action so this had to be really good for me to like! Unfortunately it wasn’t. My friends think that I’d rather go watch movies like ‘Band Baaja “Barsaat”’ and the like (which I love watching, by the way) and to that I’d like to say that I’ve seen both and they haven’t; and I still maintain that ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ is a good movie…way better than this shit!

I agree this movie is graphically very well done… the special effects are superb; one of the things that lacks is the adventure that the movie should have had. The story was pretty predictable which is ok but the screenplay and dialogues were rubbish and the movie just didn’t seem to end…it was so long! In fact, I felt like going to sleep while watching it. After every action sequence there was a bland scene full of bhashan with poor acting. Also the entire film is not in 3d which they mention even at the beginning and I don’t get the point of that.

So, yes. Tron Legacy is bakwaas and I’m very happy watching the movies that I usually watch. I wont recommend you watch it unless you’re a guy and all you care to watch is action.

Rating– 2/5
