wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

If even a ridiculous plot feels real, it says a lot about performances and all departments that work on the look and feel of a film including art and costume design.

Babumoshai Bandookbaaz - Preview

[Poster for Babumoshai Bandookbaaz with Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Bidita Bag, Kushan Nandy]
A thriller where two contract killers want to outdo each other. The trailer leaves no room for uni-dimensional characters. Hope the film follows through. ...more

Toilet Ek Prem Katha - Review

[Poster for Toilet Ek Prem Katha with Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar, Neeraj Pandey]
wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

Brings up many important issues related not just to religion, culture or even sanitation. It points a huge finger at sexism and the politics of both home and nation. But, is extremely preachy through most of it.

Mubarakan - Review

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

Relatively more coherent. Still doesn't make it any more enjoyable. Madcap story but no laughs. Thankfully not too slapsticky, but all the drama is a downer.

wogma rating: Catch on DVD for sure (?)
quick review:

A war movie, a relatively lesser known independence story, a court room drama. An intense story yet not an 100% immersive experience.

Intertwining stories of Indu Sarkar, the protagonist and Indira's sarkar leave the movie neither here nor there.

quick review:

Ace rate dialogue and performances. The topic isn't broached often enough in films. But once it is, we know where it's headed, making this film predictable too.
