Masaan - Review

[Poster for Masaan with Masaan, Vicky Kaushal, Richa Chadda, Neeraj Ghaywan]
quick review:

Despite being set in a crematorium and having a sense of morbidity throughout, Masaan isn't grim. Nor is it gay despite its wit. Masaan carries equanimity of sorts in the “life is what it is” kind of a way with simplicity and flair in equal measure.

An intriguing combaiation of a murder mystery and good vs evil story. Hope it is less of the latter. ...more

Poetry’s transitioned to film - worth watching, but this one offers no scope for true storytelling.

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

The sentiment carries the film rather than the star, for a change. Yet, film too long to do justice to a theater outing.

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?) - But if you do, you may want to go to the cinema halls.
quick review:

One epic war sequence at the end of a story that is not only half-hearted, but also half-told.

Murder Mestri (Marathi) - Review

[Poster for Murder Mestri with Murder Mestri, Rahul Jadhav, Vandana Gupte, Dilip Prabhawalkar]
quick review:

All the intended pun lies in its catchy title and dialogue with drab scenes. Straight out of the Marathi comedy films from the 80s, Murder Mestri boasts of an ill-conceived idea that drives superficial performances. Obviously, it leaves the movie wounded within.

Guddu Rangeela - Review

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

A thick plot that throws in surprises but ends the usual way – blah. An overwhelming sense of wanting to send a social message, even if understandable, doesn't help the cause.

Gorgeous cinematography. A sweet premise. Gets a lot of detail right but lingers around a bit much.

The plot, details, specific issues touched upon are all laden with insight, humor and gorgeous visuals. Above all it asks if you should really be seeking happiness with all your might.

Review - Partner: Typical David Dhawan-Govinda-Salman fare

[Poster for Partner with Partner, Govinda, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Lara Dutta, David Dhawan]
quick review:

David Dhawan comedies are beyond me. At first, it felt good to get away from the daily drudgery that life is and submit myself to the histrionics. But, a few very good laughs in exchange for an arbitrary bunch of stories thrown around a Hollywood chick-flick are not good enough. It is difficult to retain interest when you can mouth out the punch line for more than half the jokes. And even more difficult when the attempts at wise-cracks stop too.
