Average Movie Rating


    The film starts with...

As the film progressed, the one comment one heard unanimously was



The plot revolves around cops and mafia in Mumbai. Sanjay Dutt who is a special police office and Rana Daggubati, an encounter specialist team up to wipe out mafia from Mumbai. While Vijay Raaz plays the main gangster in the movie, Amitabh Bachchan appears as the gangster-turned-politician.

Analysis :


The first draw back of the film is the plot. We have seen many movies with the same subjects such as Once Upon A Time in Mumbai. Therefore, there should be something exceptionally good in the movie if the story is routine and unfortunately the music is not forgettable but a torture. The camera angles are undoubtedly experiments of Ram Gopal Varma, which were pain to eyes. There’s not even at least one plus point in the movie.

Performance :


When the film is filled with so much of action captures in weird angles the scope to analyze the performance of any actor had become a real challenge. Amitabh Bachchan did his best, Rana and Sanjay Dutt were okay. Vijay Raaz as dhoti-clad gangster irked the viwers.

Final Word:Better think twice before you watch

    Roar - Tigers of The Sundarbans Movie Review

    Roar movie is having a simple story line without a good concept and an adapted screenplay. The story of the movie begins on a decent note and it seems interesting in the first 20 minutes, after that the movie slide down badly for those who watch Hollywood flicks. The first half runs without a story line or logic end-up with the interval. Meanwhile, The second half of the movie has begin with a boring and dragged much repeating the same concept in different locations. It’s look so funny when a man fights face to face with a tiger and the movie ends on a disappointing note.

    Happy New Year Movie Review

    Moviemaker Farah Khan has taken the Happy New Year movie to another level with three hours entertainment and long drama. However, the movie makes you feel bore, but Abhishek, Boman, Sonu and Vivaan makes perfect contribution to make laugh. Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone have been showed once again with their epic romance in between them.


  • Namasthe Madam
    Namasthe Madam

    Analysis: Ragini Dwivedi has manages to put her role with an typical boss without much trouble, while Nikesha Patel has been seen in an avatar and she has played key role in the movie. Srinagar Kitty’s role shows portrayal elicits both laughter and sympathy at the same time, while the songs of the movie are average at the box office. Raghuraj has not changed much of the story line when compared to the original movie remake of Telugu film Missamma (2003). Performance: Srinagar Kitty has showed best performance as a guy stuck in between his wife and his company boss, which takes away all the accolades. Ragini Dwivedi is still manages to pull her role to a difficult boss and Nikesha Patel has played best role of a common man wife and to manage a middle class family. Final: Namasthe Madam Movie will be not the best movie of the year, but it will definitely entertain family audience till end of the movie.


  • Khoobsurat Movie Review
    Khoobsurat Movie Review

    The first half of the film starts on a positive note and the catches pace slowly. The love making scenes have been fresh and shot well. The movie has been colourful and the songs have been shot extremely well. The first half of the film ends on a decent note. The second half has lot of confusion and some scenes have been shot deviating the narration and main line of the plot. A few scenes in the movie including the kidnapping episode do not make any sense. On the whole second half ends on a predictable note and is tedious.
