Joker- Movie Review


I was half expecting no one to come with me for this movie but luckily my friend Komal called and said she was coming! I couldn’t have been more thankful!

As we’ve seen from the trailers, Joker is about this village called Paglapur which is full of ‘pagal’ people but it does not exist in the map of India anywhere! Akshay Kumar (scientist in the USA) and also born and brought up in Paglapur along with girlfriend Sonakshi Sinha (sit at home girlfriend) go to India to meet his father who pretends to be dying. When they reach, they realise, that Paglapur is in a lot of shit and the people deserve a better life. Then they start weaving the alien story and things change for the good.

Ok so Shirish Kunder thinks differently from other directors. His stories are unique and might sound bizarre to most. He’s made Jaan-e-mann in the past which was worse than vomit. Joker looked quite retarded too but there was something about it which made me wanna go watch it. The story is not something I’ve heard of before. The dialogues are below average. The cinematography is very good and even the set design is quite interesting.  Shirish Kunder as a director seems a little shaky just like the script. Too much madness in the film and very kiddish humour but not that bad also.

Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi are back together after Rowdy Rathore and they were ok in this one. Anyone could have done their roles. Vindu Dara Singh is annoying as usual. Shreyas Talpade who’s supremely talented has got the kind of role Tusshar Kapoor gets but he still manages to do it well.

The songs are pathetic, even the item song with Chitrangda Singh.

Overall, Joker is just ok. It’s not that bad also. I didn’t get bored watching it and laughed at some scenes.

Housefull 2- Movie Review


Stupid glossed out movie with decent performances and songs, good styling, beautiful locations, lame jokes and a very annoying Chunkey Pandey!

Will you marry me? – Movie Review


Things that stand out in the film- Rajeev Khandelwal’s outrageous hair and the fact that he acted in a movie like this, Muzammil Ibrahim’s killer body, Shreyas Talpade’s bathroom scene, Paresh Rawal (the only one who was just superb), bad screenplay and dialogues, horrible music, Celina Jaitley’s fakeness, Mugdha Godse’s styling and the fact that a movie like this made it to the theatres!

Mirch- Movie Review


The movies this week weren’t too interesting and I wasn’t too keen on watching Tron Legacy cause it’s just not my type of movie so I chose Mirch.

There are like 5 stories in this movie so I’m not sitting and typing so much. I’ll tell you in short. A struggling writer approaches a producer with his rejected script with too much hope. The producer says sorry boss, give me a script which is solid. The only way to make money from a film is a dumdaar actor or sex.  So the writer thinks up 4 different stories, inspired from Panchatantra, in which there’s infidelity, sex and smart women.

Now coming to my review. The beginning of the movie almost made me snore. The title credits were simultaneously rolling with the protagonist waiting for his girlfriend and drinking beer at the same time. So for the first five minutes, all I could see was his hand and a glass of beer and car keys. But don’t worry… it could only get better from there. And it did. The stories were genuinely good. Ok the 2 stories after the Interval were a little weak compared to the first two.

There are some really talented actors in the movie- Konkana Sen Sharma, Raima Sen, Rajpal Yadav, Boman Irani, Shreyas Talpade, Shahana Goswami, Sushant Singh, Prem Chopra, Ila Arun, Arunoday Singh and Tisca Chopra. Director Vinay Shukla’s very smartly used most of them more than once in all the stories in the movie and they’ve done a good job, except for maybe Arunoday Singh who was just ok.

Cinematography could have been way better considering the beautiful locations they got. The music was pretty good and went well with the movie theme.

Overall, Mirch had quite a bit of masala to make it entertaining but it would’ve been better if the pace was faster too.

Rating– 3/5

Golmaal 3- Movie Review


The Golmaal movies have always been in the ‘stupid-comedy’ category. They’re obviously not meant for everyone so do not judge me when I say that I liked it, especially if you make faces at stupid jokes!

I’m feeling lazy to type the story but in short its basically about these 5 orphans (Ajay Devgan, Arshad Warsi, Kunal Khemu, Tusshar Kapoor & Shreyas Talpade) with the help of Kareena Kapoor (also an orphan) bringing two old lovers (Mithun Chakraborthy & Ratna Pathak), who had to break up because of the girl’s villainous father together.

The story isn’t really something to brag about. It’s predictable and there’s no “wow” thing in it. The ending isn’t that great but what makes the movie a hit for me are the dialogues, the way all the actors look (except Shreyas Talpade) and the camera work. It has been shot really well, especially the action scenes.

The comedy timing of all the actors and dialogues are kick ass! There was this one scene after the interval which totally cracked me up- The Hum saath saath hai scene. If you’ve seen the movie, you’d know which one I’m talking about.  Some of the dialogues are legendary! Mithun Chakraborthy is truly a star!

Coming to the way the actors looked… I couldn’t take my eyes of Kareena… she looks gorgeous in all the scenes! For the first time I think I actually thought Ajay Devgan looked good! Kunal Khemu also for some reason looked pretty decent… otherwise I think he looks like a servant! I had a problem with Shreyas’ styling. Whoever did it, probably hated him ‘cause he looks so ganda! His hair and clothes look really really bad!

The songs aren’t that great but its ok. The movie is not about the music anyway.

Rohit Shetty has done it again! Golmaal 3 as a movie was howlarious in the second half and decent in the first half. I’d say it’s a little above average for me.

Rating– 3.5/5
