Hindi Medium - Review

[Poster for Hindi Medium with Hindi Medium, Irrfan Khan, Saba Qamar, Saket Chaudhary]
wogma rating: The keen must watch on screen; else DVD (?)
quick review:

The film uses mildly-comical satire to put its point across. However, the problem arises when writers fail to wrap it up as satire and succumb to sermonizing.

Meri Pyaari Bindu - Review

[Poster for Meri Pyaari Bindu with Meri Pyaari Bindu, Ayushman Khurana, Parineeti Chopra, Akshay Roy]
wogma rating: The keen must watch on screen; else DVD (?)
quick review:

Get swooned by the dialogue, the chemistry, the familiar give-and-take of a love relationship. Same story and yet so charming.

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

The film gradually and slowly unravels a triangular romantic equation between three young men. A good film and an important one, which needs to be supported and encouraged.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - Review

[Poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Zoe Saldana]
wogma rating: Watch for sure, preferably in theatre (?)
quick review:

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was amazing fun. It had all the jokes you wanted, and more. It had Drax’s stupid laugh. It had Chris Pratt being Chris Pratt, and best of all: It had Baby Groot. A wonderful plot, and full of great visuals, it’s perfect to watch in the theatres.

Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion - Review

[Poster for Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion with Bahubali 2 – The Conclusion, Prabhas, Tamannaah Bhatia, S S Rajamouli ]
wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?) - However, if you watch a film just for the grandiose, go to the theaters.
quick review:

There is drama in a film and then there is grand drama. In the latter, the story matters even less. It is the scale, the action, the special effects that the film is shooting for and achieves.

Noor - Review

[Poster for Noor with Noor, Sonakshi Sinha, Kanan Gill, Sunhil Sippy]
wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
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.

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: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
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.
