Sultan- Movie Review

Roochster

Sultan poster‘Khoon mein teri mitti, mitti mein tera khoon. Upar allah, neeche dharti, beech mein tera junoon…Aye Sultan!’

Just when you thought Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s got to be his best performance till date, Salman Khan gives us Sultan. And what a film it is!

Plot in short– Sultan (Salman Khan), a young man without an aim in life falls in love with a wrestler Aarfa (Anushka Sharma) who wants her husband to be a strong, dedicated wrestler too, just like her father. To win her heart and some respect, he works hard and becomes a world class wrestler. After a few years of being married and having great wrestling careers, Sultan’s arrogance goes up with his popularity while Anushka must leave wrestling to start a family. Things go awfully wrong and Sultan loses Aarfa and his purpose in life. A few years later, he gets an opportunity to wrestle again, only at a deadlier level. Will he risk it all to bring his old life back?

The Good– Salman Khan! Man! Every Eid he’s just been giving us brilliant films! Sultan too, without a doubt falls into that category. I’m not saying this just cause I’m a huge fan of his but seriously, he’s just doing better films and his performances are so much more real. This is probably the first time he’s done a role as inspiring as this and his hard work clearly shows; whether it’s his Haryanvi accent or the way he expresses himself when he looks at his fat belly in the mirror or the way he wrestles. Anushka Sharma plays a simple girl and totally rocks the look. She’s also so sincere in her performance that you can’t help but love her. Ali Abbas Zafar, whose directed movies like Gunday and Mere Brother ki Dulhan has outdone himself in Sultan. The screenplay is gripping and interesting, the film is well shot, the fight sequences are decent, and the music by Vishal and Shekhar is great. I can’t really tell which one’s my favourite song cause they’re all so good. I love the choreography in the songs. Especially that ‘bum step’ from ‘Baby ko bas pasand hai’. I could watch Salman do that step a million times and never get sick of it! The background score too is fantastic! The supporting cast plays an equally important part in making sure there’s never a dull moment. The actor who plays Salman’s best friend- (Anant Sharma) is one to watch out for! Great talent! Randeep Hooda has a small role but a great screen presence and performance. Amit Sadh is there in bits and parts and is good.

The Not-so-good– Except for the length of the movie which is two hours and 50 minutes (lots of Salman time which is not a bad thing for fans like me), there’s really not that much I can point out that would make this film any less awesome.

Verdict– Sultan is a must watch! Don’t ask why. Just go watch it and then come back and thank me.

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo- Movie Review

Roochster

prdp-posterI had been seeing every single ‘Dubsmash’ of the much awaited Salman-Sonam starrer ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo’ since about a month and it only made me more and more curious to know how it would be as a film. Salman Khan of course was my biggest reasons but Sonam Kapoor definitely made her presence felt with all the social media posts everyday with regards to her outfits and all the promotions that the duo were doing.

Plot in short-Vijay Singh (Salman Khan) belongs to a Royal family with an evil brother and the CEO (Armaan Kohli) who want to kill him and two step sisters who are not in talking terms with him because they think he wants to rule with all the wealth from his ancestors. His manager (Anupam Kher) somehow saves him and has doctors attending to him 24/7 so he can attend his coronation ceremony with his Bride-to-be Princess Maithili (Sonam Kapoor) in four days. In Ayodhya, Prem Dilwale, who looks exactly like Prince Vijay Singh (Salman Khan) is a small time actor who does Ram Leela shows for a living. Not knowing if Prince Vijay would be able well enough to attend his coronation ceremony, he requests Prem Dilwale to pretend to be Prince Vijay for those four days until Princess Maithili is with them. Turns out that Prem and Maithilee fall in love and the family comes together as one. What happens to the Vijay then? D’oh! The film’s title is only ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ so that would be an easy guess.

The Good– Salman Khan is the biggest reason to watch this film and I would totally watch it again. It’s so nice to see him in movies like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sooraj Barjatya films like these where he plays the kind of person you want to marry. I wont deny that Sooraj Barjatya went a little overboard with trying too hard to instill good values and old school romance but we’ll come to that a bit later. What I really like about the film is that human emotions are shown in the most simple, pure form, not sliding towards ‘just- an- adult- audience’ to get eyeballs. The sets and styling add to the grandeur of the film. I also thought Sonam Kapoor was not that bad compared to her previous really bad performances. Anupam Kher, Armaan Mallik, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Swara Bhaskara are all a great support to the film.

The Not-so-good– Sooraj Barjatya has great intentions but he has forgotten that an audience in the 21st century is watching his film. The story is kacha and the characters are not sketched out properly, leaving a very incomplete-ish, half-hearted story that could have been written better. The screenplay is all over the place, especially in the first half where you’re like what the hell am I watching and from which generation! It’s a little too corny and most people, who are not Salman Khan or Sooraj Barjatya fans, will wait to run out of the theatre! The visual effects are quite amateurish; especially the ‘Sheesh Mahal’ parts. The music by Himesh Reshammiya is not appealing at all. I’m surprised I was actually waiting for the title song to play till the end because all the other songs were so stupid and unnecessary. Not that I love the title track but it’s an example to tell you how bad the other songs were. So yes, quite a few flaws in a film that also has a very funny title.

Verdict– Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is not the kind of film most people would like but if you’re a Salman Khan fan and also a Sooraj Barjatya fan, you wont mind sitting through the entire film and even get teary eyed. I did, multiple times.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan- Movie Review

Roochster

Bajrangi Bhaijaan posterI woke up at 7am to watch my Salman Khan in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. Excitement was flowing through my system even as I was on my way to PVR Juhu, impatient to watch the 9am show, and before that hoping there wouldn’t be a long queue for tickets. So there I was in my seat, waiting eagerly for my Salman to appear on the big screen. But even before he came, the visuals before me took me in completely, making me forget that I was there, so early in the morning just for him.

Plot in short– ‘Shahida’ (Harshali Malhotra) a mute 6 year old girl from the Kashmiri side of Pakistan named after her mother’s favourite cricket Shahid Afridi gets left behind near the tracks of a train going from India to Pakistan in the wee hours of the night as she gets off trying to save a goat’s kid stuck inside a ditch. Finding another train to get onto, she hopes to go back home to her mother only reaching a village in Haryana where she meets our Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Salman Khan). Pawan or Bajrangi as he calls himself is a worshipper of Lord Hanuman, the monkey God and believes in always telling the truth. He meets Rasika (Kareena Kapoor Khan), his father’s friend’s daughter in Delhi and also stays in their house. They fall in love and want to get married but can only do so if Pawan can make enough money to buy a house.  Shahida who is mute and cannot read or write has no way to tell them where she’s from and so she too starts living with Rasika’s family and Pawan. As time passes by they find out that she’s from Pakistan and the only person who can take her there is Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Will he be able to cross the border and find her family? What are the obstacles that come in their way when he tries to?

The Good– Everything about the movie is good. I am not even exaggerating. Director Kabir Khan and his entire crew have let no stone unturned in making sure that the movie is made in the most honest and sincere way, not thinking of only Salman Khan and his superstar status. Salman Khan’s role is that of a very simple guy and he plays it with perfection. I can easily say that this is Salman’s finest performance and he made us cry this time. The pretty little girl Harshali Malhotra too is excellent as a mute child. She speaks volumes with her hand gestures and eyes alone. Kareena Kapoor Khan is merely a supporting actor here with not much to do but she looks gorgeous and does her usual Kareena stuff. Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s entry scene is superb! The funny Pakistani reporter Chand Nawab’s scene is exactly like the one I had seen on Youtube ages ago and laughed my ass off. He’s one of the best actors we have today and is as natural as natural can get. Also, the screenplay is refreshing and moves steadily throughout. The camera work is brilliant. Beautiful visuals. The music is not the typical Salman Khan type foot tapping sorts that we’ve heard and danced to in the past. The ‘Selfie’ song is quite fun though. People in the theatre went crazy! Technically superb and emotionally perfect.

The Not-so-good– To be honest, I can’t think of anything. Just the fact that Salman Khan didn’t have any work to do apart from go and drop the girl to her mother.

Verdict– This has to be the best Salman Khan movie after Maine Pyar Kiya and Hum Aapke Hain Koun. Pure content with brilliant performances. Left me teary eyed in the end.

Kick- Movie Review

Roochster

kick movie posterI have been down with a viral flu and resting at home since the past 4 days! I must have seen atleast 6-7 movies on TV because that’s how bored I was! Luckily Kick released and I got to go watch my Salman Khan on big screen! I was really looking forward to watching Kick after Jai Ho. Another film in Salman Khan’s 100 crore club? Ummm maybe!

Plot in Short– Devi Lal Singh (Salman Khan) is a 40 yr old unemployed genius who doesn’t dedicate himself to one place of work simply because it doesn’t give him the ‘kick’. His relationship with Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez) doesn’t last because she wants to be with someone more stable in his career. After parting ways, he begins to take life seriously and now has a purpose- to make lots of money by stealing from the rich only on festival days, mind you; and help the children who need medical treatment (Being Human/ Robinhood?) by hiding under a mask and calling himself ‘Devil’ while Jacqueline decides to forget him, continue working as a psychiatrist and get married to a cop (Randeep Hooda) who is chasing Salman. Sigh!

The Good– Salman Khan is the number one reason to watch Kick. He’s not got many applause-worthy dialogues and neither is his performance exceptional in this one but with the French beard he takes all the ‘Hot’ points. Jacqueline Fernandez only had one expression throughout and she really tried but all she could do was look pretty. Randeep Hooda was actually the best where acting is concerned. Apart from that, to be honest, I can’t find too many reasons. The first half is very different from the second half. I personally thought the second half made more sense and had some substance as opposed to the first half. The chase sequences were well done. Also, the cinematography in general is very good. Kudos to Ayananka Bose and Alexander Witt. The music by Himesh Reshammiya is not bad at all. I like the songs ‘Yaar na miley’ and ‘Jhumme ke raat’. The styling is good.

The Not-so-Good– So besides the good things, the not-so-good list is quite long. Starting with debutant director Sajid Nadiadwala’s work as a director, the story, the screenplay, the editing, and the ‘Hangover’ song. Bleh! I was pretty disappointed because the message was good but the execution not-so-good. It reminded me films like Dhoom, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Jai Ho, etc. I wish it was more original.

Verdict– Unfortunately not a Paisa Vasool film. You can watch it for ‘Kicks’ if you’re a Salman Khan fan and you looooove him like me. He gets half a mark for being Salman Khan in an otherwise flop film.

Jai Ho- Movie Review

Roochster

Jai Ho msg from Salman KhanI didn’t expect anything from ‘Jai Ho’ to be very honest looking at the trailer and songs I had seen.  Apart from the fact that Salman Khan was in it, there was no reason why I would watch ‘Jai Ho’ unless I read and heard just good reviews of the film. Anyway, getting down to my review…

Jai (Salman Khan), an ex soldier for the Indian army gets suspended for no fault of his and starts living the life of a common man doing good deeds and helping people. He starts a chain- instead of saying thank you when helped, you help three other people and let those three people help three more people thus spreading positivity and being a good Samaritan. He gets into a mess while trying to help and raise his voice against injustice and lands himself in a mess when a corrupt politician (Danny Denzongpa) and his family do everything they can to get Jai and his family out of the way.

Inspired from the Telegu film ‘Stalin’, Jai Ho is a remake and what a great one! This is Sohail Khan’s best work yet as a director and he does full justice to the story. He left no stone unturned to make the film as entertaining as possible. He even made Salman get his shirt off in the climax fight scene. Apart from a few really sad comedy scenes at the start, the film is gripping and enjoyable for what it is and not just because of Salman Khan. The dialogues don’t stand out like his past few films but the script does most of the work. The message is strong and the idea itself is all heart. When you see Jai Ho, you will see Salman Khan’s heartfelt performance and know that this film propagates the message of ‘Being Human’ and that’s pretty damn noble. In spite of there being lots of action, the intention is good and it will remind you of Singham and Munnabhai MBBS.

Technically, the film is not bad. The cinematography by Santosh Thundiyil is good in parts, the action sequences are well choreographed but we’ve seen Salman do better and the editing also could have been better. The styling is simple and unpretentious. Salman does dress like a common man albeit the different colours of Raybans he wears. Daisy Shah’s stylist, makeup artist and hairstylist have done a splendid job! She looks drop dead gorgeous!

I would have liked a couple of songs from Salman Khan’s movies usually but this one fails to create any excitement, music-wise. ‘Tere naina’ might be the only ok sounding song but otherwise, Jai Ho loses points because of the music. The background score by Sandeep Shirodkar is power packed and takes the film forward.

We’ve seen Salman Khan the superstar in far too many films where you can easily say that he’s not even interested in making an effort to act. Dabangg 2 would be the biggest example of that. In Jai Ho though, we get to see Salman Khan the actor. You can see that he’s delivering a performance from his heart and not just for the heck of it. He may look a little old (how long can he look 25, right?) but still manages to make your heart skip several beats. He’s done a fine acting job in this one! Daisy Shah is a newcomer and barely has a meaty role. She’s a great dancer for sure, but acting, well we’ll just have to see her in a film that allows us to see her acting potential better. Tabu after so long was a pleasure to watch. She’s a great actress and has done a fine job with her role. Genelia Deshmukh is another actress who’s done a great job in spite of the short role in the film! She’s really talented and should be seen acting more often. All the other actors- Mukul Dev,  Ashmit Patel, Aditya Pancholi, Yash Tonk, Danny Denzongpa, Pulkit Samrat, Santosh Shukla, Mahesh Manjrekar and all the others who had small roles in the film have played a major supporting role.

Sometimes, we underestimate the power of a superstar. Who knows? Jai Ho could inspire a ton of Salman Khan fans and others to do good and help people in the society.

I loved the film for the message it gives out, for Salman Khan, all the other superb performances and above all for being an entertaining masala movie that’s made from the heart.

Phata Poster Nikla Hero- Movie Review

Roochster

Phata poster nikla hero posterWhat a movie! Ha! That’s not to be taken as a compliment, just by the way. I wouldn’t dare recommend it to anyone or I’ll have stones thrown at me, especially from the serious movie types.

Vishwas Rao (Shahid Kapoor) wants to be a typical Bollywood hero. His mother (Padmini Kolhapure) on the other hand wants him to be a Police Officer and make her proud and so she makes him promise that he’ll be a good, honest and non-corrupt cop when he grows up. Circumstances and various situations, sometimes known and sometimes unpredictable, lead him into acting like a real life cop, making things difficult for them. During this madness, he meets Kajal (Ileana D’cruz) who’s a social activist and is constantly informing the cops about any bad things that she witnesses. Together they get themselves into a mess and being a hero is the only way out.

If you’re seen Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani or Andaz Apna Apna, you would be aware of his exaggerated style of film making which includes everything from the dialogues to the screenplay to the acting.  In Phata poster nikla hero, Mr. Santoshi over does everything. The first half is still ok and a little enjoyable but by the second half we lost the plot. From being a hero to cop to hero again and to a cop again, Santoshi not only confuses the hell out of us but also the character. It’s so sad that Shahid Kapoor had to play such an indecisive man who can’t follow his dream and who’s like one of those people living in the 20th century still. There were very few ‘laugh-out-loud’ scenes.

The styling is great! Both Shahid and Ileana look great! I also really liked the art direction and overall look of the film. I didn’t however think the cinematographer Ravi Yadav did complete justice with his camera work.  There are many action scenes in the film which have been choreographed pretty well.

The music is ok. The song ‘Main tere agal bagal hoon’ stands out and is fun to watch and listen to. ‘Dhating’ starts off randomly but is choreographed well. Shahid Kapoor as we all know is a superb dancer! Apart from that, the music doesn’t cause much of a stir.

With a film like this, the actors are the ones who have the capacity to carry the entire film on their shoulders. Shahid Kapoor sort of does that but can’t do much with such a weak script. He’s a great looker with funny lower teeth and a great body though which add to his plus points. Ileana D’Cruz has a typical girl-who-has-no-other-kaam-dhandha kind of role. She looks pretty and has done the exaggerated acting bit as told to her but somehow she looks very out of place. Saurabh Shukla and Darshan Jariwala are both brilliant and do their roles with flourish! Padmini Kolhapure is good. Salman Khan in his cameo role has the most ridiculous dialogues and doesn’t do anything but promote Being Human and Andaz Apna Apna 2! Mukesh Tiwari as the Napoleon, the villain is just about ok.

Phata Poster Nikla Hero is very average. Shahid Kapoor deserves to do better films.

Ishkq in Paris- Movie Review

Roochster

Ishkq in paris poster

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Preity Zinta in a movie. The last popular film we saw her in was Jhoom Barabar Jhoom in 2007. The she got busy with her love life (Ness Wadia), IPL, her chat show which bombed, and of course starting her new production company- PZNZ Media of which Ishkq in Paris is a product. So how was her comeback? Let’s get on with the review and find out.

Ishkq (Preity Zinta) who is half- Indian-half- French is a photographer who stays in Paris with her single French mother Marie (Isabelle Adjani). In a metro she bumps into Akash (Rhehan Malliek) who is an “agent” like in Jerry Maguire and since they’re both commitment- phobic and just want to have fun, they instantly hit it off. They decide to spend an evening in Paris (Before Sunrise, Hum Tum, Ekk Main aur Ekk Tu, Jab We Met, Anjaana Anjaani, anyone?) While they’re walking the beautiful cobbled streets of Paris, they meet a weirdo (Chunky Pandey) who sells them a dice. This dice tells them what to do- party, dinner, coffee, movie, sex…In that order, with no repetitions of course. Then it’s time for Akash to go back, only to meet again a few months later. Need I say what happens next? Of course, you already know!

Prem Raj as a director is as lost as the screenplay. What can they do when the story itself is so unoriginal and done to death? Paris looks beautiful though and cinematographer Manush Nandan has captured it so well that you’d it looks like a long advertisement to promote tourism in Paris. The locations, the art direction, the colours, the styling is all aesthetically done barring Preity Zinta’s hair. That didn’t make her look young. It just made her look stupid. Also, whoever did the casting forgot to get a male actor for the role.

Rhehan Malliek is so expressionlessly good looking that he should do modelling in Paris instead of trying to act. The chemistry between him and Preity is like tomato ketchup on a strawberry muffin. You get the drift? Preity is too old for roles like in this film and she might look very fresh with her mascara-filled eyes puffy lips but when she tries to act all young and bubbly like before, she looks like a wanna-be youngster! She only looked her normal self in the Salman Khan song. In fact, I think there was more chemistry between her and Salman in that one song than with Rhehan Malliek in the full film put together! Isabelle Adjani with her strange hair and dubbed Indian voice makes you wonder if you’re watching a badly dubbed Hollywood flop film.

The music in the film by Sajid Wajid is alright. Salman Khan only made the Punjabi song ‘Soni kudi’ better.

As a film, Ishkq in Paris fails to make a mark; but that was expected the moment you saw the trailer! Don’t watch it!

Bombay Talkies- Movie Review

Roochster

Bombay-Talkies-posterCelebrating 100 years of cinema with four established film makers and their short films. What more can any movie buff ask for? Here’s my review of four ‘slice of life’ films that are all in some way very ‘Bombay’.

Karan Johar’s short film is about the relationship between a reserved husband, his confident journalist wife and a gay intern. Dibaker Banerjee’s short film is about a father who’s a struggler in life and doesn’t have work but lives to see his daughter smile. Zoya Akhtar’s short film is about a little boy who’s dream is to be a dancer. Anurag Kashyap’s short film is about a man who travels all the way from Allahabad to Mumbai to get Amitabh Bachchan to taste some ‘Murabba’ sent by his unwell father.

Let’s start with Karan Johar’s film first. We’ve only seen glossy, rich films like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Student of the year, etc., from Karan Johar and everything’s always larger than life. But in Bombay Talkies, the characters, the setting, the story is so real that you’d be surprised that it’s made by him. I wish he’d do more films like this one. The cinematography in some scenes is lovely! The performances are superb! Rani Mukherji without a doubt stands out. Saqib Saleem was very ok in his previous films but is very convincing in this one. Randeep Hooda also played his part well. Even with its predictability, the film is well paced and has high entertainment value.

The next one is Dibaker Banerjee’s film which is slightly heavier as compared to the first one. Nizamuddin Siddiqui is a brilliant actor and he proves it time and again with every film he does. This one is no exception. The entire look of the film is strikingly real. All the actors look their part and deliver great performances. I love the cinematography from start to finish! The shadows, lighting, the angles all make the film a delight to watch.

Now, I personally am not a Zoya Akhtar fan but there’s something that draws you in while you’re watching this short film, probably the story. The beginning of the film was quite ‘filmy’ but I liked the end. Ranvir Shorey plays the little boy’s father but I felt he didn’t look or act the part convincingly enough. I can imagine Ram Kapoor acting like the tough daddy. The little boy and girl are a delight to watch. The Katrina Kaif as an angel part is quite lame. The camera work is simple.

Last but not the least; Anurag Kashyap’s short film is a bit of a disappointment. After seeing his work in the past, you’d expect better. The story is good but a bit of a drag. I felt quite restless while watching it, perhaps because it got a bit repetitive. The actor Vineet Kumar is decent but doesn’t have the screen presence to hold your attention. The camera work in this too is simple.

Bombay Talkies is a great concept with great individual stories. I’d love to watch more such movies in the future made by other film makers and artists.

Commando- Movie Review

Roochster

Commando posterI never thought I’d end up watching and out and out action film because that’s just not my kind of genre. But guess what? The keeda in me made me go watch it. That too alone! Ha! Here’s my review.

Remember movies where the villain wants to forcefully marry the heroine and she escapes into a jungle where she finds a hero who saves and protects her from the baddies. He also does chivalrous things like skillfully making a makeshift bed for the night, hunting for fish to eat, etc.? Well, Commando is all of that and more! In this, the hero (Vidyut Jammwal) is a Commando who beats up the villain’s men left, right and centre, set booby traps to protect the pretty Punjabi kudi (Pooja Chopra) who he randomly met at a bus station and of course for that one important goal- to get rid of all the baddies in India to make it a safer and better nation.

There’s obviously no importance given to the story because the film is all about Vidyut Jammwal’s amazing body and stunts. The director Dilip Ghosh is very clear with what he wants his audience to see and leaves no stone unturned to make Vidyut do the best fight scenes, almost like what you’d see video game characters do. In the beginning itself, they mention that all the stunt scenes by Vidyut Jammwal are done by him without any harness or safety gear, except for one scene where he jumps down from a valley. The biggest credit in the film would go to Action Director- Franz Sphilhaus who’s choreographed every move brilliantly, making it look natural and smooth. The cinematography by Sejal Shah is outstanding! All the forest scenes, especially the ones taken in pure sunlight are beautiful. I’d also like to specially mention that the Editor- Amitabh Shukla too has done a fantastic job and would remind you of the editing done in Ghajini’s action scenes where you enjoy every cut and transition. Some of the locations they’ve shot at are breathtaking and the credit goes to the production designer for that.

I wish there was more to the story that just plain action but I guess most guys enjoy such movies. It was fast paced but seemed more like watching a video game. Also, in today’s day and age, a villain who looks like that with his background story seems a bit outlandish. Some dialogues are very good and if Salman Khan said them, the entire nation would go crazy, but coming from Mr. Jamwal, with barely any expression on his face, came across as made up.

Coming to the performances… Vidyut Jammwal is definitely the One man army with his chiseled body and action-packed performance. actually does action scenes like a true martial artist and not just an action star like Ajay Devgan, Akshay Kumar, etc. However, he barely speaks anything or shows any emotions on his face which make him seem like one of those ‘Brawn without brain’ actors. Pooja Chopra looks pretty and acts well in a few scenes but her character is done to death and you wont go back and remember her for this performance. She’s just okay. The villain, Jaideep Ahlawat is superb! He not only looks scary with his white eyes but also plays his part very well as the bad guy.

The music by Mannan Shaah is ok except for the song ‘Saawan bairi’ sung beautifully by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, shot exceptionally well in slow motion and choreographed amazingly! The song doesn’t even go with the theme of the movie but both the actors look stunning and just as a music video, it works wonders!

If you’re an action movie fan, watch Commando for Vidyut Jammwal’s mind-boggling action sequences and for those who are not, just go with an open mind and you might just think the movie is not that bad.
