Review - 1920: Horrified...at the take on religion!

[Poster for 1920 with 1920, Vikram Bhatt, Rajneesh Duggal, Adah Sharma]
quick review:

It horrifies for sure. Both by its thrills and its insensitive take on religion. Decent special effects cannot help forgive extreme irresponsibility in this age of communal riots.

7 khoon maaf - Review

[Poster for 7 khoon maaf with Vishal Bharadwaj, Priyanka Chopra, Naseeruddin Shah, John Abraham, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Irrfan Khan, Anu Kapoor, Aleksandr Dyachenko]
quick review:

This movie is worth watching just for Priyanka Chopra's performance. The rest of the lead cast is only a bonus. Now how I wish, there was a little bit of a surprise in the narration or at least I understood even half of why the characters behaved the way they did. Now if the only explanation is weird attracts weird and together they all get weirder, either I didn't get the film or it is one zany experience that didn't go down all that well with me. And yet I wouldn't have wanted to miss watching this one.

Aatma has a storyline flatter than Bipasha Basu's waistline. So, you end up having yet another lame horror film, that barely manages to spook you.

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?) - Only for thriller buffs who don't mind absense of substantial story
quick review:

Weird camera angles used wisely, wish background score was used miserly. Nevertheless, the pace and visuals used are well placed to thrill and create curiosity. Alas, the climax is pretty predictable and that takes away a lot from the enjoyment of the film.

Akaash Vani - Review

[Poster for Akaash Vani with Akaash Vani, Kartikeya Tiwari, Nushrat Bharucha, Luv Ranjan]
quick review:

If Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge was all about respecting one's parents wishes, Akaash Vani is a mini-attempt and a serious one at respecting a child's wishes. Yes, I just compared this effort to what is considered an epic of our times. Because it is a valiant effort. If only, it had avoided the trappings of a few clichés.

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Review

[Poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron with Avengers: Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen]
wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

It seems impossible that a film could be bigger and better than The Avengers, but Joss Whedon’s follow up, Avengers: Age of Ultron, delivers and how! Always bitingly funny; sometimes scarily dark; and never once dipping in terms of just how much information it feeds you, Age of Ultron is a big film to absorb, but worth every minute of it.

Azaan is a well-stylized action thriller. However, its punctuated by tiring romance. What could've been a gripping drama, stretches too long and outstays its welcome by just that bit.

quick review:

It's longer, it's snazzier, it's louder but it's not funnier or better. Sure, it makes you laugh a few times, but it loses the plot and goes over the top more number of times. Besides it doesn't offer anything new in terms of simpleton vs. the "classier" people.

[Poster for Dabangg with Salman Khan, Sonakshi, Arbaaz Khan, Sonu Sood, Vinod Khanna, Abhinav Kashyap]
quick review:

Dabangg, and more so, Salman Khan, won't even allow a reviewer her right to roll her eyes. How can she be the snoot who ignores a packed house is dancing and clapping its way to the background score of an action sequence? She laughs at the silliness on screen and off. She walks out of the theater feeling happy for the people who had come to enjoy and made sure they had a good time. But enjoy, for her own self, did she? Nope. Not a chance.

Stories from the lives of the middle class, a generation gap where the children want to move up to the next level in socio-economic ladder. Sounds boring and is too. But the relationships are warm and the issues are real. Unfortunately there is a patch in between which makes the film a drag. That along with the preaching takes away from the crisp film it could have been.

Don 2 - Review

[Poster for Don 2 with Farhan Akhtar, Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Om Puri]
quick review:

Smart lines and slick camerawork turns into tiring witticism and regular big-budget technicalities because it is over-written and over-stylized. The few extra seconds taken to establish a scene with elegance give the crux of the scene away. This keeps this action-thriller from being crisp. Multiple, smart twists are pointless if you are going to chicken out in the climax.

Force - Review

[Poster for Force with Nishikant Kamat, John Abraham, Genelia Dsouza]
quick review:

Force is a perfect masala film, which also means, it is perfectly predictable. And yet, Force keeps you engaged. It has everything in the right proportion - romance, action, drama. But it doesn't have that one overwhelming factor which can make me recommend it to you without any reservations. I have to add caveats like, if you are into hard-core action, if you like borderline genuine romance, if you don't mind the two interrupting each other, then watch it for sure.

Guzaarish - Review

[Poster for Guzaarish with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai, Aditya Roy Kapoor]
wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Guzaarish is an art museum. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is the perfectly chiseled curator and Hrithik Roshan an almost statue. And this once, it’s not his acting I’m complaining about, the script demands him to stay put. You are watching them etched in many exotic, exquisite paintings frame after frame. So, what if the very basis of the story is pointless and there are gaping holes which are difficult to digest.

Review - Halla Bol: Immature execution

(Not every name manages to skip a beat, heartbeats have rules of their own.)

Too much mushy trouble and you get one beautiful line. Now that you've read it, you can skip the film. It takes the romance out of pain in love. Could there be a worse crime?

quick review:

The story - beyond the lead lady turning into a prostitute - might still have worked, I can imaginably have given that much to the writers. But, the film that it has turned into is certainly well worth hating. From acting to music to pretty much everything else, Hate Story pushes your patience to the brink.

Hum Dono (Rangeen) - Review

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

I thoroughly enjoyed this walk down memory lane, needless to say, mainly because of the poetry the film is. Both literally and figuratively. Of course, there are many-many elements in the film that would be completely unacceptable in our films today. But this one is for us to celebrate the man who will turn 88 this September 26th. And let's remind ourselves that he was just two short of 40 when Hum Dono released.

I'm not sure how much we'll enjoy the gold that old is, if we get too much of it, but for now, it's good to get a glimpse of the golden era the 60s was.

Seasons change faster than some of the scenes in Mausam. Seriously. And it takes all of two hours and f-o-r-t-y long minutes for boy to meet girl, about four times after which I lost count.

Mausam is beautifully shot, no doubt about that, but a regular love story takes forever to finish, and then there's some more left. And nope, after the first half of the first half is over, there is nothing at all that could make the lovers' frustrating journey engaging.

Ship of Theseus (English, Hindi) - Review

[Poster for Ship of Theseus with Ship of Theseus, Anand Gandhi, Aida El-Kashef, Sohum Shah, Neeraj Kabi, Vinay Shukla, Sameer Khurana]
wogma rating: Pride of your DVD shelf (?)
quick review:

Anand Gandhi’s debut feature Ship of Theseus is a thought-provoking, emotionally and intellectually moving cinematic experience, one that Indian cinema can be proud of. For those who believe that they have the right to firmly hold on to their brains while experiencing movie-magic, Ship of Theseus won’t let you down. It talks about universal themes like the meaning of existence, and it does so without resorting to indulgence or pseudo-intellectualism. All I can really say about it is ask of it, and you shall receive.

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi - Review

[Poster for Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi with Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi, Bela Sehgal, Boman Irani, Farah Khan]
quick review:

A frustrating watch. A disgusting experience. Not just because of the toilet humor. But more, because you just can't get over the "How could SUCH an awful film be made?" feeling even after an hour of having watched the film. A film that tries too hard to get cute.

Comical action, filmy dialogue, awful flow make Singham's decent concept look laughable. It tries to make a couple of points but they are lost in the "coolness" that the film wants to be.

The sharp dialogues support a fragmented plot. The smart visuals are accompanied by jarring background music. The story is neither about carrom nor about the communal riots. The movie is neither here nor there.

Review - Tangled: They're taking adventure to new lengths.

[Poster for Tangled with Nathan Greno, Byron Howard, Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy]
wogma rating: Pride of your DVD shelf (?)
quick review:

Tangled is everything you want an animated movie by Disney to be. Its fun, adventurous, action packed, touching and filled with lough-out-loud scenes. A complete package indeed. On top of it the first half could very well be called a musical, and a very good one at that, mind you. It takes the fairytale of Rapunzel and creates a thrilling adventure for you to enjoy with your family and friends. We all walked out of the theatre - content, grinning to each other and getting every bit of our moneys worth and then some. An absolute must watch in theatres.

Tanu Weds Manu Returns - Review

[Poster for Tanu Weds Manu Returns with Tanu Weds Manu Returns, R Madhavan, Kangna Ranaut, Aanand L Rai]
quick review:

The music will not leave your head in a hurry, and the performances will wow you. But Tanu Weds Manu Returns isn't likely to remain with you as film, because of its rather ludicrous plot. Add to that the issues regarding gender and sexism that every film by Aanand L Rai tends to contain, and what you're left with is a film that could have been, but isn't.

Review - Tere Bin Laden: Slapsticky satire at its best

[Poster for Tere Bin Laden with Tere Bin Laden, Ali Zafar, Barry John, Chinmay Mandlekar, Chirag Vohra, Abhishek Sharma]

quick review:

Tere Bin Laden is a subtle slapstick, if such an oxymoron exists. You'll miss out on loads of fun if you miss this one. When you are helpless and can do zilch, the least you can do is present a laughable solution to a hopeless situation.

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

If you’ve been up all night, you know the crazy things insomnia can make a person do. At several points during The Machinist, you will promise yourself never to deliberately stay up and let your demons take over. Christian Bale’s underweight, sleep-deprived look is so disturbing, it compels you to sit through the movie to figure out what happens. Watch the film for a good old dose of wide-eyes-shock-revelation-relief.

quick review:

The most emotional chapter in the Toy Story series, this film takes Woody and Co. in a new adventure inside a daycare centre, where they must adapt to the harsh realities, or remain dumped in Andy’s attic as he prepares to leave home for a new life in college. Great moments, fantastic stunts (don’t miss Buzz Lightyear’s Flamenco dance in the end-credits), Toy Story 3 is no ordinary animated feature. Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Animated Film (2010). Nominated for Best Motion Picture, Best Animated Feature at the 2010 Academy Awards.

Review - Tum Mile: Miss this appointment, you'll survive

[Poster for Tum Mile with Tum Mile, Kunal Deshmukh, Emraan Hashmi, Soha Ali Khan]
quick review:

Love, calamity, death all taken way too casually in a drab, still-life sort-of a way. Its unexciting, its slow. But a strong lady character is good because its rare in Hindi films. Little solace that is, though.
