Story

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 :

Department

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 :

Department

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

    Banjo Movie Review

    The first half of Banjo starts on an interesting note, however the film slips down completely even before the interval episodes. Banjo has been filled with logicless episodes which really test the patience of the audience. The songs have been decent however the major plot has been left completely away while indulging the commercial aspects into the film. On the whole the first half of Banjo has some engaging episodes but the audience will be left confused because of the narration midway.The second half of Banjo dips down completely because of the stupid elements that have no connection with the basic plot of the film. If you are patient enough, only then will you reach the climax of this film. Though the performances have been extremely convincing, Banjo will end up as the biggest disaster because of the poor narration throughout. The basic plot has been neglected completely and the audience will be left shocked with the treatment of the second half.

    Pink Movie Review

    The first half of Pink has been stupendous when it comes to narration and execution. The plot has been well written and the movie has been well framed. Each and every scene looks extremely realistic. The performances by the lead actors make the film completely impressive. The gripping screenplay has been top notch and the pre-interval episodes make the audience blown away. The interval episodes make a huge impact and on the whole the first half of Pink has been extremely impressive. The second half of Pink too carries away the same momentum. Every time the film feels low, a twist comes out which will leave the audience puzzled. The performances once again have been top notch and the tight screenplay along with the gripping narration makes Pink highly impressive. The complete second half has been mind blowing and the climax ends up impressing the audience big time.

    Raaz Reboot Movie Review

    The first half of Raaz Reboot has some interesting experiences of the haunted house which bring curiosity among the audience. However things change completely after many of the episodes look predictable. The basic plot of the movie has been completely outdated and it has nothing new to reveal. Some of the scenes have been completely faked and the interval twist spoils the complete flavour of the film. On the whole the first half of Raaz Reboot has some interesting moments. The second half of the film is a complete boring feast and it offers nothing much to get excited. The cat and mouse chase looks completely unnatural and it has been predictable. The previous instalments of Raaz had some hot and sensuous romantic episodes but Raaz Reboot is an exception for them too. A simple and predictable climax make Raaz Reboot a debacle.

    Baar Baar Dekho Movie Review

    The first half of Baar Baar Dekho starts with a bang. The first half an hour of the film looks extremely racy, convincing and entertaining. However the movie takes an ugly dip there after and never tries to recover back. The entertainment has been decent and the songs have been shot extremely well. The performances by the lead actors have been extremely convincing and on the whole the complete first half of Baar Baar Dekho has been decent pinning huge hopes on the second half.The second half of the film has been filled with repeated episodes and the humour, entertainment dips down completely. The actual message to be conveyed has not been revealed in the right way which makes the second half of the film fall flat. The climax episodes look decent however there are many twists that fail to impress the audience. The entire second half of the film has been extremely predictable.

    Akira Movie Review

    The first half of Akira starts with a bang and it looks completely interesting and engaging. However because of the unwanted episodes the interest dips down and Sonakshi Sinha has been just ok in the assigned role. The dose of drama dominates the real scenes and on the whole the first half of Akira has been just ok and is not upto the mark. The second half of the movie suffers in all the available ways to sustain and impress the audience. Though Sonakshi tries her bust to live up to the expectations, it is again the unwanted drama which happened to be the major reason for the film’s disappointment. The levels of entertainment have been completely down and the screenplay has been quite loose. On the whole the second half of Akira is a huge disappointment.

    A Flying Jatt Movie Review

    The first half of A Flying Jatt has been completely gripping, hilarious, entertaining and interesting. The interest has been managed throughout and the songs have been shot extremely well. The episodes between Tiger and his mother will bring instant smiles throughout. The narration has been decent and the action episodes take out the blow. On the whole the first half of A Flying Jatt has been well written, gripping and thoroughly entertaining.The second half of the movie takes a mighty tumble as the film offers nothing after an interesting and such gripping first half. The action episodes make the film fall flat as they have been completely meaningless. The lose screenplay and the narration too have nothing much to do during the second half. Though the songs have been decent, the action episodes and a faked out climax make the film fall flat. On the whole the second half of A Flying Jatt is a huge misfire.
