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/online (?)
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.

An ode to unrequited love and its victims. Reminds them to bask in their one-sided love's glory. The film slices and dices emotional relationships in many, many ways. Watch but please not with cynical unromantics.

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.

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Review

wogma rating: Beg or borrow, but do watch (?)
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.

quick review:

The most awaited movie of this year, and most years that have passed before this, does not fail to disappoint… to a certain degree. There are definitely areas where it lacks, and some parts that were truly awesome. However, overall, I left the theatre not knowing what exactly what I thought of this one, and mildly irritated. Is that good?

quick review:

The movie doesn’t take its basic premise further and yet goes way beyond it. The relationship nuances touched upon are rarely seen in films. Free of drama, glamour, action, this ‘it is what it is’ family drama, is a thoroughly engaging and insightful entertainer. Just the one ‘apology’ scene makes the film a winner.

Same old underworld world. Same old violence. Same old attempt at creating value through shock. Gore and sexual titillation are abundant. Over-dramatization and slo-mo exposition throughout drags the film. There is an attempt to tie all ends neatly, but there are only a few lines that make an impression, that too not a lasting one.

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.

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

Dunkirk (English, French, German) - Review

[Poster for Dunkirk with Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan, Fionn Whitehead, Tom Hardy]
wogma rating: Owner's Pride! (?)
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.

quick review:

Ek Thi Daayan builds at a good pace and takes the proceedings to a great peak at mid-time. Unfortunately, it goes only down after interval. Yet, there are a few genuine scares and good performances. A casual DVD watch.

Force - Review

[Poster for Force with Nishikant Kamat, John Abraham, Genelia Dsouza]
wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV/online (?)
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:

Gangs of Wasseypur II delivers on the promise of being a quirky revenge saga. A saga which holds no bars and lets loose the internal animal which revenge itself seems to have given birth to. A saga so full of characters that a keen film-lover would want to watch twice – only if they can stomach the violence in almost every frame and profanity in every other sentence. Others, shouldn't even bother.

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.

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.

Hello Jai Hind (Marathi) - Review

[Poster for Hello Jai Hind with Gajendra Aahire, Kedarh Shinde, Vinay Apte, Nitin Desai, Trupti Bhoir]
wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?) - Basically, the keen must watch it!
quick review:

Hello Jai Hind, Gajendra Ahire’s latest film, is a dramatic, hard-hitting tale of an honest constable and his fight against the feeble politico-judicial system. While far from perfect, the film engages you because of its un-glorified, realistic treatment. In spite of the flaws in its writing and male lead Nitin Desai’s weak performance, the film is highly watchable because of Ahire’s mature handling of the story. Lead actress Trupti Bhoir’s performance, Nitin Desai’s art direction and Illaiyaraaja’s music enhance it further, making it a worthy addition to the films that have begun emerging from the fast-evolving Marathi film industry.

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.

The third film in the Iron Man franchise, directed by Shane Black this time, is easily the best in the series. Robert Downey Jr is at his best, the action scenes are terrific in scale, vision and execution, and Ben Kingsley’s The Mandarin makes for one of the most enigmatic screen villains ever.

quick review:

It’s a dark look at human nature with a hint of hope that humans need. Awesome portrayal of detailed characters. Unfortunately, pace is slow enough to make it tiresome by the end.

quick review:

The uncomfortable feeling which makes you jump in your seat - that is Murder 2's success. It's one of those films where you come out with only the villain and what he is capable of. If you can handle creepy, sexual violence, go for it. It is sure to provide "that" kind of a thrill.

Review - Naqaab: Comedy or suspense thriller?

quick review:

It is a shame that another brilliant concept has been flushed down the drain because of half-baked attempts at narrating and acting. The product comes across as tacky because of the constant shuffle between comedy, unintentional comedy, a few extra-predictable scenes, and unexpected plot twists.

Om Shanti Om is a mediocre variety entertainment program. The movie gets marred because the makers did not have the courage to make a spoof for the sake of a spoof. It is obvious that the story was forced to make the movie sell. Had they stuck to the industry jokes, it would have been as entertaining as a gossip magazine.

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.

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: Beg or borrow, but do watch (?)
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.

Tumbbad - Review

[Poster for Tumbbad with Tumbbad, Rahi Anil Barve, Soham Shah, Anand L. Rai]
wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV/online (?)
quick review:

A meaty story and a gory film which deviates from the typical possessed body horror storyline. Chills the spine as a horror film about supernatural phenomenon should even though I am not convinced horror films should be made at all.

quick review:

Tries too hard to be cool and “contemporary”, comes across as superficial instead.

Sappy melodrama overshadows hilarious one-liners by mono-dimensional, caricatured, character sketches.

Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is one of those rare films that made me wonder why it was made at all.

Yeh Faasley - Review

[Poster for Yeh Faasley with Yeh Faasley, Yogesh Mittal, Anupam Kher, Pawan Malhotra, Rushad Rana, Tena Desae]
wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Yeh Faasley is a perfect thriller. It’s a shame that the first hour and the court room scenes are very mediocre. Which is why the twists and turns post-interval come both as a pleasant surprise and make for one of the best climaxes I've seen in a long, long time.
