Because we need another DDLJ? No, wait. There has to be an Imtiaz angle that the trailers haven't given away. Please let there be. ...more

Mubarakan - Review

[Poster for Mubarakan with Mubarakan, Arjun Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Ileana D'Cruz, Anees Bazmee]
wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Relatively more coherent. Still doesn't make it any more enjoyable. Madcap story but no laughs. Thankfully not too slapsticky, but all the drama is a downer.

Raag Desh - Review

[Poster for Raag Desh with Raagdesh, Kunal Kapoor, Mohit Marwah, Amit Sadh, Mrudula Murali, Tigmanshu Dhulia]
wogma rating: Catch on DVD for sure (?)
quick review:

A war movie, a relatively lesser known independence story, a court room drama. An intense story yet not an 100% immersive experience.

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

Intertwining stories of Indu Sarkar, the protagonist and Indira's sarkar leave the movie neither here nor there.

Lipstick Under My Burkha - Review

[Poster for Lipstick Under My Burkha with Lipstick Under My Burkha, Konkana Sen Sharma, Plabita Borthakur, Sushant Singh, Alankrita Shrivastava]
wogma rating: Catch on DVD for sure (?)
quick review:

Ace rate dialogue and performances. The topic isn't broached often enough in films. But once it is, we know where it's headed, making this film predictable too.

Dunkirk - Review

[Poster for Dunkirk with Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan, Fionn Whitehead, Tom Hardy]
wogma rating: Must see - on the big screen (?)
quick review:

Dunkirk is probably the best movie I have seen this year. It’s got an edge-of-your-seat tension throughout. It’s well acted, well directed, and well written. It shows you all the horrors of war while depicting one of the biggest evacuations in history. An intense beginning, an action-packed middle, a perfect ending, along with the weight of being based on a true story, make this movie a brilliant watch.

Erratic in engaging and evoking empathy. Could be watched for its director and theme.

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

Cute, fun detective story taking on huge issues of the world. Juggles all of that well but becomes long-drawn in the process.
