Ten-Four in Filmfare...!

Hi All,

Posted on February 10, 2015 on FB... About 60th Filmfare Awards

60th Filmfare Awards 2014 - 31st January 2015

Best Actress Award - Kangana Ranaut for Queen ... Not Madhuri Dixit nominated for Dedh Ishqiya
Review on January 19, 2014 - Dedh Ishqiya - ...Madhuri is assuring in glimpses but as Begum Para could not rise body's Para (temperature) indicating that age catches up everyone fast even if someone is matchless in the past...
And Kangana in 'Queen' has been truly refreshing.

Best Choreography Award - Kick (Jumme Ki Raat song)
Review on July 29, 2014 - Kick - A movie to the expectations of Lead Actor's fans, this film delivers perfect kick to the audience. Stunning stunts, shunting songs... Well supported by music...

Best Film & Best Director Awards - Queen ... Not Haider
Review on October 12, 2014 - Haider - An adaptation of a tragedy amalgamated with burning border issue ends in tears and ash... More common sense should have prevailed while dealing with sensitive issues such as Kashmir conflict... For normal audience, this Haider probably prompts for a Hider...
And aptly the awards went to 'Queen' for appealing to normal audience.

Best Screenplay & Best Dialogue Awards - PK
Review on January 02, 2015 - PK - Another movie with a thought instilling concept... a punchy entertainer with a pinchy enlightenment... watching PK is a bliss...

Happy to see my reviews reflecting big! :)


With best wishes,

Movie Review - Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju...

Movie: Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju (Telugu)
Directed: K Kranthi Madhav
Produced: KA Vallabha
Story: K Kranthi Madhav
Music: Gopi Sunder
Cast: Sharvanand/Nithya Menen/Tejaswi/Pavithra Lokesh/Nassar/Surya/Chinna

          Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju - A beautiful love story albeit made long but strong in script, subtle concept, good performances, appeasing songs, appealing music, pretty matching background score and eye-catching cinematography. But for some missed logic, this movie has its magic; especially focused on defining love. Neatly made and partly jaded. A family entertainer, might go very well with younger generation which appreciates class (in movies) and might not gel with elder which advocates class (in society). Nevertheless, should be encouraging for the lead pair and provides a boost to their careers along with refreshment to the viewers.

Movie Review - Shamitabh...

Movie: Shamitabh (Hindi)
Directed: R Balki
Produced: Sunil Lulla/Gauri Shinde/Rakesh Jhunjhunwala/RK Damani/Abhishek Bachchan
Story: R Balki
Music: Ilaiyaraaja
Cast: Amitabh Bachchan/Dhanush/Akshara Haasan

          Shamitabh - ABCDE... A Big 'C' Dud Effort. After all these years, director wanted the audience to realize the importance of the already famous baritone voice..! Is this a promotion to yet to be famous advanced technology in speech therapy..! Is this a launch of a famous star kid better at speaking English than acting...! Is this to demoralize challenged people with loads of talent and dreams of becoming an actor..! Such a depressing effort with much talented and expressive cast at disposal, hugely unimpressive. Real life will have many unknown, unwanted, unfortunate twists and turns not in our control. But to showcase the same even on reel despite having control, focusing only on ego, agony, ignominy and troll; just shambolic... or say 'SHAMitaBhOLIC'. A pretty 'piddly' and 'sorry' movie with SHIT in it (SHamITabh).

Movie Review - Baby...

Movie: Baby (Hindi)
Directed: Neeraj Pandey
Produced: Bhushan Kumar/Krishan Kumar/Sheetal Sharma
Story: Neeraj Pandey
Music: MM Keeravani/Sanjoy Chowdhury
Cast: Akshay Kumar/Danny Denzongpa/Anupam Kher/Rana Daggubati/Taapsee Pannu/Kay Kay Menon/Sushant Singh/Madhurima Tuli

          Baby - A dejection for viewers if expecting this to be in the same bracket of this Director's earlier movies (A Wednesday & Special 26). Screenplay is low in tenacity and Performances lack intensity which make audience feel that the effort made with such a sensitive concept is of Baby steps. But for these technicalities, the team should be applauded for this brave attempt on theme of terrorism and saluting unparalleled heroism. The movie climax has got similarities with Hollywood flick by Ben Affleck (Argo) and many action sequences does not click to the liking. The script does not have the punch and the taking does not have the panache to make it an edge of the seat thriller. This movie is made of those Martyrs making history giving a damn, seems also made by those who gave damn in making this story. Nevertheless, watching this is a small tribute to the real heroes who refute those radicals of wrong pursuit.
