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.

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

    Begum Jaan Movie Review

    Right from the first frame, Begum Jaan misses the clarity throughout. The film has some realistic and stunning episodes that surprise the audience and it is Vidya Balan who tries hard to save the film but could not. The first half has some engaging episodes which make the film passable. The performances by the lead cast sure makes lot of difference. On the whole the first half of Begum Jaan is slightly decent but not up to the mark.The second half which is quite crucial for such films fails miserably in all the available ways. The film has some interesting plot but it is the screenplay and the narration which makes Begum Jaan fall flat. Vidya Balan’s stupendous and fearless performance has been utterly wasted throughout. The pre-climax episodes kill the film completely and a decent climax makes no difference. On the whole the second half of Begum Jaan is a huge failure in all the available ways.

    Naam Shabana Movie Review

    Naam Shabana has an interesting plot but most of the things seem to be forced for Shabana and the penned character. The first half of Naam Shabana has been decent with power-packed performances and interesting episodes throughout. The film dips down at parts and some of the episodes have been forced to take place. The songs have been completely speed breakers and they deviated the film. On the whole the first half of Naam Shabana looks decent with some interesting drama. The second half of Naam Shabana lacks interesting narration and it is the screenplay which makes the film let down. The movie’s major plot looks deviated and the introduction of many unwanted characters spoil the film’s flow. The pre-climax episodes make the film interesting however a simple climax makes the film end up on an average note. The performances by the lead actors are the major highlights of Naam Shabana.

    Phillauri Movie Review

    Phillauri has an interesting story line and it has been well executed in parts. The movie turns quite interesting at times however it is the slow narration which spoils the feel throughout. The first half looks decent and it has some interesting episodes to get entertained. However a huge dip during the pre-interval episodes spoils the mood and on the whole the first half of Phillauri has been quite comfortable to be watched.After a decent first half, the second half fails to make that impact across the audience. The uninteresting narration and the unwanted episodes spoil the film’s feel. They deviate the major plot of the film and irritate the audience. It is Anushka Sharma who shines throughout the film and the visuals look extremely impressive. The climax has been decent and on the whole the second half of Phillauri fails to live up the expectations.

    Trapped Movie Review

    Trapped starts on an engaging and entertaining note with a cute love story and funny conversations between Shaurya and Noorie. The movie takes a major leap after the lead actor gets trapped in a building which is located in the heart of the city. The gripping narration is sure the major highlight though the film has enough flaws that can be ignored purely because of the performances and the tight screenplay. On the whole the first half of Trapped has been decent and interesting.The second half of Trapped strikes hard with its content and it with the performance of Rajkumar Rao completely. Though the film lacks commercial content, the screenplay of the film makes Trapped an interesting one. Rajkumar Rao makes a huge impact with his impressive performance which makes Trapped an impressive film to watch. The climax episodes have been decent.

    Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie Review

    The entire first half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania has been racy and runs on entertainment which is filled with humour and sensible elements. The songs have been shot extremely well and are the major highlights of the movie. The emotional episodes too take the major leap at the right time and the interval episodes make the film gripping. On the whole the first half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania is a treat to watch.The second half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania too takes the same wave for sometime but the major plot gets deviated after time passes. However the movie returns back soon and the entertainment takes the major show of the film. The performances by the lead actors and emotional episodes during the pre-climax and the climax makes Badrinath Ki Dulhania a winner at the box-office.
