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

    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.

    Aagadu Movie Review

    Aagadu movie first half of the film starts with pace and the movie is quite racy. Mahesh carried the entire first half on his shoulders and his comedy timing has been spectacular. The story will moves on an interesting note and the interval bang is simple. The songs have been routine and bad in the first half. Meanwhile, the second half starts on a predictable note and it is huge down fall when compared to the first half. The comedy scenes and the characters are repeated and every scene resembles us with Sreenu Vaitla’s previous films. The songs are the major drawback and makes the second half too boring. The climax has been predictable and simple.

    Finding Fanny Movie Review

    Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor’s young characters or Dimple's, Pankaj's and Naseeruddin's elderly characters, which shows some direction in their philosophies and reach a new destination as individuals by the time their road trip comes to an end. Finding Fanny is not a comedy movie, which it has its light moments, with enough scenes where you cannot stop but laugh with the characters. Meanwhile, the movie has managed full of human emotions and philosophies in way seldom seen happening in Bollywood. The concept of love and care that exist in the real (and not the silver screen world) are well-showcased in the movie.

    Mary Kom Movie Review

    'Mary Kom' first half of the movie is only packed with her boxing matches and contains a few incomplete elements of Mary’s life from her childhood to her pregnancy. Priyanka Chopra has already become a three time world champion. Meanwhile, the second half on the other hand has a few outstanding elements including the part where Mary Kom’s husband tells her about her son’s illness just before her match.
