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

    Exodus: Gods and Kings Movie Review

    Scott has approaches Moses’ story as a classic Hero’s Journey tale, where the movie called as very selective in what parts of Moses’ saga it tells, recounting his infancy anecdotally rather than showing it. Moses will be seen at various points as a warrior, a herald, a guerrilla fighter, a family man, sometimes defiant of God and even a bit of loony. But, the testament to Bale’s approach that his Moses remains human, relatable, which he will never turns into a wooden figure spouting Epic Dialogue. Bale said ‘you can’t out-Heston Charlton Heston, while it’s not one of the Oscar winner’s best performances and it is an engaging and compelling one.
