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

    Baaghi Movie Review

    Baaghi is an action entertainer loaded with action episodes. The first half of the movie has been completely interesting with fresh narration. Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor tops the show and the songs are the major assets of the film. The action episodes have been power packed and the interval episodes have been completely dominating. On the whole the complete first half of Baaghi has been decent.However the second half which is quite crucial fails to impress the audience. The director concentrated completely in elevating Tiger Shroff in the movie and the major plot of the movie has been side tracked. The climax has been packed with huge dose of action as expected and the movie ends up on a below average note.

    Laal Rang Movie Review

    The first half of Laal Rang has been written with utmost care and perfection throughout. The entire first half has been completely entertaining and interesting with enough twists. The songs of the movie have been well placed and the entire first half of Laal Rang has been realistic. On the whole the complete first half has been impressive.The second half of Laal Rang dips down badly because of the poorly written screenplay. The movie has some moments to get entertained, but the second half mostly suffers lack of proper narration. The songs have been decent and it is the performances by the lead actors which make the film lively. The climax has been just normal and on the whole the second half of Laal Rang suffers the needed interesting narration.

    Fan Movie Review

    The first half of the film starts with the introduction of Aryan Khanna and Gaurav Chandana which brings a good clarity on their behaviors. Gaurav’s performance in his colony as Aryan Khanna is sure an impressive show after which the film moves on to the original plot. An unexpected incident changes the pace of the film and the complete first half has been well executed. One should have guts to sign a film like Fan and the other big thing is balancing the entire film with his outstanding performance. SRK does this again and the complete first half has been entertaining and interesting. The second half of Fan has its emotional and destructive side. The most interesting thing is that the audience will be left amazed and entertained at the same time. You will be laughing with tears and the complete auditorium has been left with pin drop silence throughout the second half. The action episodes have been racy and top notch. The screenplay has been gripping enough and the pre interval episodes make the movie sit on the peaks. Though the climax has been dragged and disturbed, the entire second half of Fan has been outstanding. On the whole, Fan has been intriguing and interesting, realistic and egoistic, destructive and obsessive,fun filled and power packed, crooked and well knocked,  emotional and exceptional, fascinating and heart touching.

    Love Games Movie Review

    The first half of Love Games starts on an impressive note because of the plot and the narration. The movie lacks proper pace and interest after the first twenty minutes passes by. The narration is the major drawback of the movie and some of the episodes have been poorly written which makes the film fall flat. However the interval episodes bring lot of interest and on the whole the complete first half has been decent and interesting.The second half of Love Games has a different story as the audience get confused because of the narration that has hue flaws. The love story has been completely faked out and the performances by the lead actors fail to make much impact on the audience. The movie dips down further during the pre-climax episodes and the climax has been completely predictable. On the whole the complete second half fails to impress the audience.

    Sardaar Gabbar Singh Movie Review

    The first half of Sardaar Gabbar Singh has nothing new and interesting episodes throughout. The entertainment has been completely outdated. The songs lost pace and they failed to impress the audience completely. The action episodes lacked power and they looked completely fake. The interval episodes have been dragged much with over dose of action. On the whole the complete first half of Sardaar Gabbar Singh has been a disappointment.After a below average first half, the audience face tough time during the second half of the film. The second half dips down even more and Sardaar Gabbar Singh fails in all the available ways during the second half of the film. The songs failed to impress the audience with the visuals and the entertainment looks copied. The pre climax episodes have been dosed with unwanted entertainment and the climax has been quite routine. The complete second half of Sardaar Gabbar Singh makes no impact and makes the film end up as a debacle.

    Ki & Ka Movie Review

    The first half of the movie is completely engaging and loaded with sensible entertainment throughout. The director managed to indulge lot of sense of humor in the fresh plot. The performances by Arjun and Kareena take the film to the next level. The music has been melodious and the songs have been marked at the right places. The interval episodes have been decent and the complete first half has been fresh in narration. The second half of the movie will leave the audience in deep shock after such an interesting first half. The dose of drama has been beyond the limits and many unwanted episodes have been dragged much. The complete efforts of the first half look vanished after watching the second half which makes the film fall flat. The climax has been decent but it alone could not save the film.
