Kahaani

Story

Vidya Bagchi, a pregnant woman lands in Kolkata, looking for her missing husband Arnab Bagchi. She sent him for work at National Data Center two weeks back and he has been missing since a week. Research makes her find out that there is no person by the name of Arnab working in NDC neither there was someone who landed in Kolkata by that name during that period. Also, NDC’s ex-employee Milan Damji who was involved in the Kolkata terror attacks, 2 years back looks exactly like Arnab. Now, to find Arnab, Vidya needs to find Milan and how are they related.

Analysis :

Kahaani

A never-seen-or-heard-before story is what makes Kahaani stand tall amidst all the suspense thrillers that we have seen. Even films like Don 2 stand nowhere close to it. The film is an edge-of-the-seat entertainer and though it is serious and dark, it has its share of necessary humour with nothing going over the top.

Performance :

Kahaani

Vidya Balan is impeccable and unbeatable at her craft. The lady deserves a national award year by year. There is no denying that she alone can take the film to another level. Parambrata Chattopadhyay as Vidya’s sole companion in her search is absolutely talented. His natural acting prowess stuns. There is no one who is a miscast in the film whether it is the second-in-command at the Indian intelligence or the chief or anyone else. A scary contract killer who works as an insurance agent also does a fabulous job.

Final Word ‘Kahaani’, an interesting flick to Watch… Don’t give this film a Miss!

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns Movie Review

    The first half of the movie has been highly entertaining right from the first scene. The movie has been racy and engaging. The film brings out lot of question however the audience ends up getting wrong answers. On the whole, the complete first half has been highly impressive. The second half too carries the same momentum but it dips at times. When you feel that the movie is losing its grip, the film gains the momentum back. An emotional and well written climax makes the film a highly satisfied film to watch this weekend.

    Bombay Velvet Movie Review

    The movie is good on eyes. The movie takes you through the Vintage world. The rich cinematography, detailing presentation adds the cream. But these can drag the movie to some extra stars. The movie has its own cons as well. The narration fails to hook the audience till the end. Scenes are stretched and creates you boredom. The plot misses the tempo and struggles between love story, crime saga, urban legend and corruption drama. There is enough Godfather, Casablanca, and Chicago, but the actual Bombay velvet is comparatively less Its cinematography and performances, particularly Ranbir's edgy 'big shot', merit an extra half-star. But while Bombay Velvet is stylish, this fabric could have been smoother.

    The first half of the movie has perfect narration and flavor. The narration has been top notch with loads of entertainment. The movie has been racy and interesting. On the whole the complete first half of Piku has been highly impressive. The second half has been slow compared to the first half but on the whole the second half has been impressive with emotional content taking the major role. The movie is sure an example of critical Indian families.

    Gabbar Is Back Movie Review

    The first half of the film has been racy with power packed action episodes and powerful dialogues which make the audience stick to their seats and watch the film interesting. On the whole the first half of the movie has been gripping and sensible enough. The second half of Gabbar Is Back has dipped at times but the accident sequences have been managed well. The songs have been poorly shot which makes the film fall at times. But the climax of the movie elevates the film which makes it a decent watch.

  • Mahakali Movie Review

    Mahakali Movie Review

    After rocking the screens with her action and fight moves, Malashree's next is going to be yet another action packed one titled Mahakali. Directed by S Mahendra, this is the second time he is teaming up with Malashree - the previous one being Ganga Yamuna. The film stresses on woman power at an all new level. This time Malashri came as a good samaritan who helps women in distress and solves problems between couples. Director S S Mahender, known for making movies which tug at your heartstrings, has penned a script that aptly suits Malashri. However, the story is not new to Kannada audiences. The film attempts to discuss almost every issue that has a potential to plague women, be it at home or at work. However, there is only one resolution that Devi has to offer: thrash the goons, mostly men. Devi does not believe in engaging in a debate. She would rather just pummel them into learning a lesson. When she does propose a solution, it is often problematic. For instance, when a girl approaches her saying her boyfriend drugged and raped her and is now refusing to marry her, Devi forces the boy to marry the girl. One wonders why Devi didn’t think of filing a case of rape against the boy, first. Along with these logical loopholes, Mahakali is like a brochure that tells its audience all that Devi is capable of. The villains are caricatures: the corrupt politician who has the law literally in his pocket with a lawyer and a police officer as his aides. Ultimately, the raging Devi seeks refuge in Kali, the divine, entering Devi’s body slays wrongdoers. Camera work comprised jarring shots that attempt to highlight the iconic status of Malashree. Comedy scenes reduce women to mere objects of desire, often negating the spirit of women’s empowerment that the rest of the film stands for. Malashree signs off promising her fans that she will come back with another stunt film soon.

  • Avengers Age of Ultron Movie Review

    Avengers Age of Ultron Movie Review

    Avengers: Age of Ultron is one heck of a superhero orgy as the mighty six - Iron Man (RDJ), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Capt America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) come face-to-face not only with the invincible Ultron, but various characters like Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany). With these numerous characters put together, you can't wait for the 'party to begin' and Whedon rewards your anticipation, right from the beginning and maintains it till the end. Fangasm guaranteed. AOU is no less than a spectacle (the opening scene in particular with the heroes in slowmo - midair as they pounce on their enemies) and you get exactly what you pay for. The unparalleled action is of epic proportions and makes the mammoth destruction shown in Man of Steel and the previous Avengers film pale in comparison. However, unlike the previous film which was more massy, this densely plotted sequel may appeal to the geeks more. For those not acquainted with the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), getting the threads together of this layered film could be a task. So, brush up on your Marvel jargon before watching this one. And finally the big question - Is AOU better than The Avengers (2012)? It is definitely bigger in scale and there's a romance brewing, but you miss Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his humour. If Avengers was a biryani, with all the flavours coming together seamlessly, AOU is a desi thaali, full of scrumptious dishes, but a tad in excess. It's spectacular, yet can leave you exhausted.
