2 States - Review

A wogma guest review by Pradeep Menon
[Poster for 2 States with 2 States, Arjun Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Ronit Roy, Abhishek Varman]
wogma rating: Catch on DVD for sure (?) - The ultra-keen could consider the big screen
quick review:

Debutante director Abhishek Varman gives us a Chetan Bhagat adaptation that doesn't attempt to offer any more heft than what the book does. It provides instant gratification primarily because of a charming lead cast and an excellent supporting cast that rises above the rather tame writing.

Bhoothnath Returns - Review

A wogma guest review by Pradeep Menon
[Poster for Bhoothnath Returns with Bhoothnath Returns, Amitabh Bachchan, Parth Bhalerao, Nitesh Tiwari]
wogma rating: The keen must watch on screen; else DVD (?) - Just the *really* keen, preferably those who have kids
quick review:

Bhoothnath Returns is a kids’ film that at least some of us adults must watch this election season. Though it is a tad too naïve and preachy, and a little too long for it's own good, the film attempts to make a point that a number of us can learn from; it is a well-acted film with some genuine moments.

Heartbreaker (Arabic, English, French, Japanese, Mandarin, Spanish) - Review

A wogma guest review by Swetha Ramakrishnan
[Poster for Heartbreaker with Pascal Chaumeil, Romain Duris, Vanessa Paradis]
wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

Just the title Heartbreaker, makes the film predictable. While sometimes that can be annoying, in this film’s case it partly works. Romain Duris, with all his SRK-type charm, is the main reason why. If only the film found a way to incorporate its wittiness through the film. And it’s a pity there were no breath-taking visuals, for a film based largely in Monaco. A backdrop of the French Riveria, would have taken the film to another level.

Main Tera Hero - Review

[Poster for Main Tera Hero with Main Tera Hero, Varun Dhawan, Ileana D'Cruz , Nargis Fakhri, David Dhawan] quick review:

Loud, directionless - and repetitive on both counts and more.

Rangrezz - Review

[Poster for Rangrezz with Rangrezz, Priyadarshan, Jacky Bhagnani, Priya Anand, Rajpal Yadav, Amitosh Nagpal]
wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

Rangrezz, surprisingly puts a solid effort in writing a decent story. Yet, it takes the events to extremes towards the end, makes it too long and loses the plot. Some witty dialogue and a few well-timed performances keep the interest alive in an otherwise uneven second half.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Review

A wogma guest review by Pradeep Menon
[Poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, Josh Whedon, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson] quick review:

The First Avenger is back, and this time he's saving the world from an enemy that lies within. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is good fun while it lasts, though it disappoints a bit as well, primarily in how it doesn't do justice to the intriguing villain of the title. Still, a good cast and some exciting moments make the film engaging enough.

Ankhon Dekhi - Review

A wogma guest review by Pradeep Menon
[Poster for Ankhon Dekhi with Ankhon Dekhi, Sanjay Mishra, Rajat Kapoor, Seema Bhargava, Rajat Kapoor] quick review:

A lovely ensemble cast brings alive a strange little tale that spawns many philosophical questions, that may or may not be of importance in the larger scheme of existence. Rajat Kapoor’s Ankhon Dekhi is a bittersweet little film filled with texture and life.

[Poster for Youngistaan with Youngistaan, Syed Ahmed Afzal, Jacky Bhagnani, Neha Sharma] quick review:

I hope young India's vision is not as shallow, superficial or short-sighted.

Review - Paathshaala: I don't want to go to school

[Poster for Paathshaala with Paathshaala, Milind Ukey, Nana Patekar, Shahid Kapoor, Ayesha Takia, Saurabh Shukhla, Anjan Srivastava]
wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

There seems to be absolutely no limit to exaggeration. I understand the greed for money and bureaucracy is rampant in the most private of corporations, including schools. But, to showcase the entire corporate and publicity sector as the meanest, most heartless people is a bit too much. Our rotting education system needs desperate attention, but spare me the lop-sided one, please.

Noah - Review

A wogma guest review by Pradeep Menon
[Poster for Noah with Noah]
wogma rating: The keen must watch on screen; else DVD (?) - But big screen will do better justice to the visuals!
quick review:

Darren Aronofsky's Noah is a grand affair; visually stunning, and epic in scale. A strong central performance by Russell Crowe as the titular character makes the film something worth watching. Yet, the film leaves you with a feeling of it being inexplicably flawed.
