Newton - Review

[Poster for Newton with Newton, Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, Amit Masurkar]
wogma rating: Must see - on the big screen (?)
quick review:

You brace yourself for the highest degrees of scathing cynicism when you walk in to a film about India's election process. You walk out with a smile that balances the skepticism with healthy hopefulness. Those are just a few “when was the last time that happened” packed in 100+ minutes.

quick review:

Run-of-the-mill revenge drama that tries very hard, but doesn't engage at all.

O-kay. So David Dhawan thinks we need another Judwaa. I can't see any good news there. Hoping to be proven wrong. ...more

Simran - Review

[Poster for Simran with Simran, Kangna Ranaut, Hansal Mehta]
wogma rating: The keen must watch on screen; else DVD (?)
quick review:

Simran has a perfectly flawed lead character, played almost to perfection by Kangna Ranaut, the film has a close-to-perfect climax too. If only, the plot didn't accelerate to being outland-ish mid-way.

Daddy - Review

[Poster for Daddy with Daddy, Arjun Rampal, Aishwarya Rajesh, Ashim Ahluwalia]
wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

A relatively engaging last half hour. Only if you can sit through gun fight after gun fight after gun fight that is typical of a film based in the underworld.

quick review:

Delivers a story with lots of style - in the first half. Alas, you come to expect what happens in the last hour and lose the thrill along the way.

Raw in its treatment, this noir film starts of well but loses its way and doesn't end so.
