Rangoon - Review

[Poster for Rangoon with Rangoon, Saif Ali Khan, Kangna Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor, Vishal Bharadwaj]
wogma rating: Catch on DVD for sure (?)
quick review:

The tiny step Bharadwaj takes towards Shakespeare is worth an applause, and a second-viewing too. Even so, the writing though has miles to go.

The Ghazi Attack - Review

[Poster for The Ghazi Attack with The Ghazi Attack, Nassar, Milind Gunaji, Bikramjeet Kanwarpal, Rana Daggubati, Tapsee Pannu, Sankalp]
wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

A war thriller that has potential to tingle your patriotism and even bring you to your seat's edge. But for the melodrama and the technical stuff that seems just too implausible.

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

The usual greedy businessman-politician-police web against the hapless common man. However, if you don't know about the scam close to what's really happening in Punjab's sarso-de-khet1, you might want a peep in.

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

As we'd expect from the trailers, a satirical, court-room drama that keeps you engaged for the 2+ hours. Won't stay for too long after though.

wogma rating: The keen must watch on screen; else DVD (?)
quick review:

Crime drama from the 80s, songs like they are from the 90s, slickness and style from the 00s. And story like a thriller should be written.

quick review:

Kudos to writing that got me hooked to wrestling for the last hour or so. This for a person who gets easily bored in wrestling films, let alone the sport itself.

quick review:

More of the same, except a little less than usual. But, Star Wars fans can never have enough, right? eyeroll

The whole is lesser than the sum of the parts, especially if you want a story that goes beyond a broad stroke.
