Phillauri - Review

[Poster for Phillauri with Phillauri, Anushka Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh, Anshai Lal]
wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Some films mesmerize because they linger lyrically, beautifully. Others l-l-l-i-i-i-i-n-n-g-e-r in a way you wish it stops before you can say asap. Unfortunately, Phillauri is the latter.

Naam Shabana - Preview

[Poster for Naam Shabana with Naam Shabana, Tapsee Pannu, Akshay Kumar, Shivam Nair]
A regular “Akshay Kumar saves the world” film, only that a woman apparently takes lead in helping him through? Or is there hope of it being anything more? ...more

Trapped - Review

[Poster for Trapped with Trapped, Rajkummar Rao, Vikramaditya Motwane]
wogma rating: Catch on DVD for sure (?)
quick review:

What if you were cut-off from civilisation all alone in a jungle? A concrete jungle. Trapped provides the creepy crawls. However, the anxiety is more for what you will be made to watch next, and not on behalf of the character.

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Too distant for city audiences to find relatable. Too superficial for smaller town audiences to find believable.

Rangoon - Review

[Poster for Rangoon with Rangoon, Saif Ali Khan, Kangna Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor, Vishal Bharadwaj]
wogma rating: Catch on DVD for sure (?)
quick review:

The tiny step Bharadwaj takes towards Shakespeare is worth an applause, and a second-viewing too. Even so, the writing though has miles to go.

The Ghazi Attack - Review

[Poster for The Ghazi Attack with The Ghazi Attack, Nassar, Milind Gunaji, Bikramjeet Kanwarpal, Rana Daggubati, Tapsee Pannu, Sankalp]
wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

A war thriller that has potential to tingle your patriotism and even bring you to your seat's edge. But for the melodrama and the technical stuff that seems just too implausible.

Irada - Review

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

The usual greedy businessman-politician-police web against the hapless common man. However, if you don't know about the scam close to what's really happening in Punjab's sarso-de-khet1, you might want a peep in.

Jolly LLB 2 - Review

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

As we'd expect from the trailers, a satirical, court-room drama that keeps you engaged for the 2+ hours. Won't stay for too long after though.
