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

[Poster for 1920 with 1920, Vikram Bhatt, Rajneesh Duggal, Adah Sharma]
wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
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.

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

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.

A lovely ensemble cast brings alive a strange little tale that spawns many philosophical questions, that may or may not be of importance in the larger scheme of existence. Rajat Kapoor’s Ankhon Dekhi is a bittersweet little film filled with texture and life.

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.

A strong middle hour sandwiched between twenty minutes of silliness at the beginning and an absurd last half hour, make Blood Money hanging between engaging and ridiculous. A clear indication that the writers didn't quite believe that they had it in them to give Blood Money a fair chance.

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
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.

quick review:

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

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

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.

[Poster for Hum Dono (Rangeen) with Hum Dono (Rangeen), Dev Anand, Sadhna, Nanda, Amarjeet]
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.

I am Kalam - Review

[Poster for I am Kalam with Nila Madhab Panda, Gulshan Grover, Harsh Mayar, Pitobash Tripathi, Beatrice Ordeix]
wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

I am Kalam charmingly visualizes the life of a little boy who has to work to sustain himself and his family. Its simplicity is works as both an advantage and a disadvantage. The easy-going narrative is a pleasant watch but too-good-to-be-true plot is distracting.

An entertaining first half that establishes the characters and an emotionally charged second half keeps you interested in a rather regular love story. The story is as far from reality as can be, but then, that is what escapist cinema is all about, right?

Singham - Review

[Poster for Singham with Rohit Shetty, Ajay Devgan, Kajal Aggarwal]
wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

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.

quick review:

An action film which is actually trying to make a point through its story, even if it is an over-simplified one.

Special Chabbis - Review

[Poster for Special Chabbis with Special Chabbis, Neeraj Pandey, Akshay Kumar, Kajal Aggarwal, Jimmy Sheirgill]
wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Special Chabbis is an unfair joke on the audience. If it were not for some witty dialogue delivered with great timing, Special Chabbis would've been a very frustrating experience.

Review - Striker: gets queen, misses cover

[Poster for Striker with Striker, Chandan Arora, Siddharth, Aditya Pancholi, Ankur Vikal]
wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

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.

Sully - Review

[Poster for Sully with Sully, Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney]

quick review:

Sully is what you get when Clint Eastwood’s methodical erudition for real life stories meets Tom Hanks’ inexhaustible sagacity to essay oddball, eponymous characters.

Sultan - Review

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Sultan is one movie repeated twice – once before the interval and once after. Both are equally predictable and melodramatic.

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.

Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya - Review

[Poster for Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya with Riteish Deshmukh, Genelia Dsouza, Mandeep Kumar]
wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?) - when you are in a giggly-chirpy kind-of a mood.
quick review:

Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya is loud. Very Loud. Yet if you are in that giggly/exuberant mood can be an enjoyable 'nothing better to do' watch.

Thank you - Review

wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable (?)
quick review:

It's brainless, it's banal, it's boring - nothing short of what you expect from an Anees Bazmi film.

The Dirty Picture - Review

[Poster for The Dirty Picture  with Milan Luthria, Naseeruddin Shah, Imran Hasnee, Tusshar Kapoor, Vidya Balan]
wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

It's dirty and you'll love it. For its wit even if might seem a little over-written. For its nerve even if the after-taste is that of an under-cooked story. For Vidya Balan because she is entertainment!

The Machinist - Review

[Poster for The Machinist with The Machinist, Brad Anderson, Christian Bale, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, John Sharian]
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.

Toy Story 3 - Review

[Poster for Toy Story 3 with Toy Story 3, Lee Unkrich, Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack]
wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
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]
wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
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.
