Noor - Review

[Poster for Noor with Noor, Sonakshi Sinha, Kanan Gill, Sunhil Sippy]
wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

Coming-of-age, social message, comment on media, con-men – Noor covers a lot of ground. Which might have been fine, if only it didn't start its sermon.

Praying that it is more than “more of the same”. The trailer sadly seems to indicate otherwise. ...more

Begum Jaan - Review

[Poster for Begum Jaan with Begum Jaan, Srijit Mukherji, Vidya Balan]
wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

Asks pertinent questions subtly, but everything about it seems like it is for “effect”. None of it germane to a story.

Mukti Bhawan - Review

[Poster for Mukti Bhawan with Mukti Bhawan, Lalit Behl, Adil Hussain]
wogma rating: Catch on DVD for sure (?)
quick review:

As refreshingly simple as is poignant, as much about death as it is about daily life, as sombre as is spirited. Mukti Bhawan seems slow yet engages.

Good news: There is a woman beating up bad man after bad man to save the world. Bad news: That is not qualification enough to make a film good.

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.

Trapped - Review

[Poster for Trapped with Trapped, Rajkummar Rao, Vikramaditya Motwane]
wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
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.

quick review:

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