Ram Gopal Varma’s prestigious film, Department bombed at the box office. People who came out of theatres after watching this movie looked distressed and sad. When asked as to how the movie was many of them gave thumbs down. Everyone expected that Department would be a big hit as Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Rana Daggubati appeared together but there was nothing great except the trio. Quickly go through this review before you watch the film.

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

    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.

    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.

    Hingyaake Movie Review

    Kudos to debutant T S Sathyajith for selecting a good storyline. But a loose script and a messy narrative take away from the film. Haphazardly linked sequences add to the viewer's confusion. Even the comic sequences fall flat, with the lead actors lacking punch. With just a tad more effort, Prateek could have infused more life into the character. Deepthi Maane's performance is commendable, though she comes into the picture pretty late.

    Margarita With a Straw Movie Review

    It delivers a poignant and uplifting portrait of an individual determined to live life to the lees despite all the odds she faces owing to her restricted motor skills. Margarita, With A Straw narrates its emotionally arresting and startlingly revelatory story without resorting to the mawkish or the preachy. It is the sophistication of the making that stands out: Margarita, With A Straw is adroitly crafted. It eschews tear-jerking theatrics. And it does not take recourse to any shrill remonstrations to get its point across.

    Mr X Movie Review

    The first half of the film has too many loop holes and the script of the movie has not been gripping enough. The movie has been ok at times but it dips down from the next scene. On the whole the first half of the movie has nothing much to say about. The second half of the film has been interesting at times but the main needed plot has not been taken care. The villain’s character in the movie has not been written well and the story has been clumsy to narrate. On the whole the second half of the movie has been a major downfall.
