Kya Kool Hain Hum 3- Movie Review

Roochster

Basically Kya Kool Hain Hum 3 is a badly made adult comedy that makes no sense whatsoever and isn’t any fun to watch starring out of work actors and models with big tits.

Rating- 1/5

Bajatey Raho- Movie Review

Roochster

Bajatey-Raho-posterVinay Pathak and Ranvir Shorey make a great time and usually choose great films. Was this one any good? Well from the trailer it did seem fun. Here’s my review.

Sukhwinder Baweja (Tusshar Kapoor) and his mother (Dolly Ahluwalia) along with Mintoo (Vinay Pathak), Ballu (Ranvir Shorey) and a young boy (Husaan Saad) are on a mission to con the evil businessman/ industrialist Mr. Sabbarwal (Ravi Kissen) for something dreadful he did in the past.

Director Shashant Shah who’s made films like Dasvidaniya and Challo Dilli has hit a hattrick with his small budget comedy film Bajatey Raho. Now the story is nothing spectacular or unique. There are too many cliché’s for it to be different so I wish a little more attention was paid to the story. What is done well is the screenplay. There was a good flow that kept the movie going and made it entertaining without thinking about how predictable it is apart from a few songs that popped up now and then. The cinematography by Arun Varma is very good. Lovely colours and light used in various scenes. Both art direction and styling are simple and real. The sweaters suited Tusshar Kapoor and Dolly Ahluwalia dressed up as a more fashionable, modern lady looked surprisingly good.

The background music helps quicken the pace. The music is ok. The song ‘Naagin Naagin’ stands out and doesn’t quite fit in with the theme of the movie.  The song ‘Tennu main love karda’ from Desi Boyz converted into a bhajan is quite hilarious.

All the actors in the movie are brilliant but Dolly Ahluwalia steals the show! She is superb! Her comic timing and acting ability is fantastic! Vinay Pathak and Ranvir Shorey sort of go hand in hand and share great chemistry as we have seen in the past. They were both a treat to watch. Tusshar Kapoor was good too. Ravi Kissen is a natural actor and delivers his performance with ease. Vishakha Singh as Tusshar Kapoor’s love interest was not bad either even though there was barely any chemistry between her and Tusshar. Anya Singh as Gudiya was probably the only actor who was trying too hard to act.

Small budget films are finally getting the attention they deserve and people do like them. Bajatey Raho might be a little too predictable but it’s a movie that’s fun to watch and is quite entertaining too. If not at a theatre, do watch it at home.

Shootout At Wadala- Movie Review

Roochster

Shootout at wadala-PosterDirector Sanjay Gupta is back with yet another stylized action film- Shootout at Wadala which tells us the story of Manya Surve, a notorious gangster who was killed in an encounter in Wadala in the 1980s.

John Abraham plays Manohar (Manya) Surve. In college, he’s a good guy, has a steady girlfriend and even scores well in his exams. So what made him become a gangster? A murder accusation leads him to jail because of which he gets aggressive and wants to kill the people behind his imprisonment.

This is a film only for the masses, rather only for guys who love violence. I went to watch it at a single screen and it was housefull! Sanjay Gupta’s style of film making is typical- action, dialogues and the women all must stand out. The action is very good, the dialogues are killer and the women are nothing but sex objects. In spite of having good dialogues, the screenplay fails to find a steady ground. It goes all over the place and doesn’t do much to tell the story properly. Sanjay Gupta as a director must realize that the film should be beyond violence, abuses and women. The writing is so weak that you wont feel for Manya Surve or his girlfriend. Also, there’s no special effort made by the production team to work on the look of the film. Apart from using old cars, Kangana Ranaut’s styling and Sonu Sood’s clothes in a few scenes, you wont feel like you’re back in the 1970s or 1980s.

On the bright side, the cinematography is rich, the editing for the action scenes is outstanding and yes Milap Zaveri does cause a stir among the audience with his powerful lines.

John Abraham as Manya Surve is surprisingly good. This is by far his best performance to date; probably because he hasn’t got the chance to do any challenging roles in the past. Tusshar Kapoor is alright. Anil Kapoor as always delivers an effortless performance and looks so young! Sonu Sood and Manoj Bajpayee are very good. Mahesh Manjrekar has a small role but is amazing to watch! Kangana Ranaut looks gorgeous but is stuck with the same crying and cribbing kind of role. She still reminds me of a pigeon.

The music by Anu Malik is ok. The background score is very good. What is annoying is that the songs just come up randomly during the movie. Sunny Leone as an item girl has nothing to flaunt but her physical assets. She’s not that great a dancer and can’t mesmerize you with expressions. Priyanka Chopra’s dance number is better.

Shootout at Wadala has nailed it in the camera, dialogue and edit department and can be a major part of John Abraham’s showreel but fails to make an impact as a film based on true incidents. I got quite bored during the course of the film.

Kyaa SuperKool Hain Hum- Movie Review

Roochster

I was really looking forward to watching Kyaa SuperKool Hain Hum after watching all the trailers. I thought they were hilarious and totally crazy! Now, let’s get down to my review.

Coming to the story- What story? Haha what I mean is that there’s no story, just random scenes or jokes put together to create one sex comedy. It involves 2 guys with no ambition in life and aren’t particularly working, who have a double meaning for everything! They come across 2 beauties and chase them around and even land up in Goa with their pug ‘Sakru’ who is the doggy version of ‘Vicky Donor’. After that I don’t know what to say because there’s no story only just tons of pjs and double meaninged jokes.

So, as I said, there’s no story so let me not get into talking about that. Ekta Kapoor’s mantra is ‘Sex sells’ so she’s made sure there’s plenty of sexual innuendos and ‘non-veg’ jokes throughout that will make the college crowd go mad. And to be honest, people were laughing out loud, clapping and whistling throughout. Its clearly a movie for the masses. The styling is good, the hair artist has done a fab job, superb locations and colours! I also felt that Riteish Deshmukh hasn’t looked this good before. He’s worked on his body and he’s showing off his new tattoos on his arms and chest all through the movie. There’s a lot of adverts placed in the movie too- Lawman, Moods Condoms, Global Advertisers, Nimbuzz, Ipill to name a few.

Some of the dialogues are really bad; For example: Riteish Deshmukh at a pani puri stall says, :”Aane ragdo mane chaat’. Very old joke! Also , one of the pugs who Anupam Kher calls his mother is called ‘Rose Mary Maarlo’. Quite old and quite sad too! Many more of those in the movie. There are also some really funny jokes like when Riteish Deshmukh meets this gay guy at a bar and that guy says, “Haha you’re witty” to which Riteish says, “Haha you’re Churchgate”. Now that’s a joke only people in Mumbai will understand. That really cracked me up though!

Coming to the performances, I think Riteish Deshmukh is very good with his comic timing and has done a good job, Tusshar should stick to his ‘Golmaal’ role where he doesn’t need to do much, except for maybe the ‘Chingum’ scene where he acts like Ajay Devgan! Now that was hilarious! Sarah Jane Dias and Neha Sharma look hot and have done a decent job acting also.

Yeh picture itni ‘kool’ bhi nahin lekin phir bhi timepass hai. Dekhna hai toh dekho bhai!

Rating- 2.5/5

The Dirty Picture- Movie Review

Roochster

When I heard that ‘The Dirty Picture’ is based on Silk Smitha’s life, I quickly did a Google search and found out that she had done a small role in the movie ‘Sadma’ with Kamal Hasan and she looked extremely horny and weird. Why would anyone make a movie about Silk Smitha and why would Vidya Balan put on so much weight for a movie?! Read on.

The Dirty Picture is about Silk Smitha’s life. Reshma (Vidya Balan) runs away from home searching for work that will make her rich and famous. As luck would have it, even with her simple looks, she manages to get a song in a movie. People don’t like the movie, but when they see her sensuous moves and kaatil adaayein, she becomes the most wanted girl and everyone wants to sign her in their films. From Reshma, she becomes Silk and men love her, want her and can’t get enough of her. But is there anything besides money and fame in her life?

Ekta Kapoor knows what works and what doesn’t. She’s made a smart move and created a film that will be remembered not only for Vidya Balan’s acting and passion to be the character she plays, but everything about the movie replicates a person’s life we knew nothing about. To me that is a big deal. The story is very well played out and each character is well defined. The dialogues are superb and I love the way everything from the 80s ka setting to the costumes to the songs look so real and suit the time she lived in. The whole crew and especially the director Milan Luthria have done a damn good job!

Vidya Balan is the star of the show, undoubtedly! I can’t imagine any actress who’d put on 12 kgs for a movie, jeopardizing her film career. She deserves a standing ovation and hats off to her for pulling it off so beautifully! She looks fantastic even though she has an ugly paunch in the movie and acts effortlessly! RESPECT! She can probably be called the female Aamir Khan in Bollywood who does films because they mean something and not just to make money or whatever other reasons other actors have. She definitely deserves all the awards this year! Naseeruddin Shah might be old but does such a good job that you’d feel no one else would match up to him for the part of Surya. Tusshar Kapoor plays a lallu in the movie and luckily didn’t have a big role so he was quite ok. Emraan Hashmi has acted decently but his voice is quite irritating and monotonous!

The movie has only 3 songs out of which Ooh Lala is just too good and I can’t stop dancing everytime I listen to it thanks to Bappi Lahiri. Even Ishq Sufiyana is lovely.

The Dirty Picture is one of the best movies of 2011 and I totally recommend it! Go watch it in a single screen theatre to really enjoy it! Superb hai boss!

Rating– 4/5

Golmaal 3- Movie Review

Roochster

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
