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.

Average Movie Rating


    The film starts with...

As the film progressed, the one comment one heard unanimously was



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 :


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 :


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

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 Movie Review

    We're in the rebellious District 13 section of Panem, what was once North America, where an oppressive totalitarian government rules, the cult of celebrity thrives, and war is on.  (Thus, the to-the-death contests referenced in the title have been called off. Katniss Everdeen has played onceagain by Jennifer Lawrence, where she finds herself in the center of the rebellion against the Capitol, led by District 13’s president, Coin (Jennifer Lawrence). She hopes to organize and unite all the districts and overthrow President Snow (Donald Sutherland) under the guidance of Plutarch Heavensbee (the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, to whom the film is dedicated), who had helped Katniss from the Games.


  • Happy Ending Movie Review
    Happy Ending Movie Review

    Saif Ali Khan's role looks very goofy, pleasure-seeking urban Romeo, which makes you feel his earlier movies such as Hum Tum, Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail. Saif’s character in Happy Ending though is not exactly different from the one, where he has played in the aforementioned endeavors. Kareena Kapoor Khan’s cameo role showed outstanding screen presence is short and sweet, while Preity Zinta(Divya) plays a perfect companion to Yudi. Govinda has played key role in the movie and it shows clearly why he is called as the true comedy king of Bollywood.

  • Rang Rasiya Movie Review
    Rang Rasiya Movie Review

    The movie begins with the attack on an art gallery, where Raja Ravi Varma's paintings are getting auctioned. It’s such an apt opening for a film based on the life of a painter, where his sole motive in life was to defy illogical norms. Rang Rasiya is an outstanding eloquent film that never gets weighed down by its inherent erudition and the film portrays the artiste as an icon and a rogue. It’s a statement on behalf of people who reject intolerance and are continuously striving for a new India which will give space to free voice. It’s a piece of art. And Ketan Mehta, has brought the enigmatic ambivalent life and art of Varma out of the closet into the portals of palpable accessibility.


  • The Shaukeens Movie Review
    The Shaukeens Movie Review

    However the movie is a remake of 1982 film Shaukeens, which it is being tried to narrate the film with the modern touches. The movie begins on a positive note but starts dipping towards and lacks interest towards the interval. The second half of the movie will give us a bit entertainment and the actors have been wasted. The comedy has not impressed the audience and it dips to the worst reaching toward the climax. Akshay Kumar helps to bring some much needed smiles and the movie has nothing to offer in the second half leaving the movie hopeless.
