Badhai Ho!

Yet another of those simple and yet entertaining films! Its a windfall. Simple stories of simple people! As you may have seen in trailor, it about a simple couple who are expecting a baby very unexpectedly and how their family friends and neighbours react to it. Ayushman Khurana seems to be the champion of such films! Neena gupta is a very good actress but this time the grandma played by Surekha Sikri takes the cake. We like the cute Sanya Malhotra and her family for whom money is no criteria for marriage, its a hidden rule breaker in the film.

Review of SUI DHAAGA

We are truly amazed with the quality stories Bollywood is coming up with these days. Suddenly comedy and seriousness have found common ground. We love the new Bollywood that now has found ways to talk of serious things with a touch of comedy.

To start with Sui Dhaaga is a story of the underdogs who fight with innocence and determination. A simple story that shows Anushka totally deglamorized in cheap sarees but the inner beauty of the character shines through. Varun plays a simpleton and yet manages to look very handsome. We think he looks stunning. The main characters are well etched and have their little idiosyncrasies. It is not an art film but builds upon a similar structure. You feel for the characters. Itís a heartwarming tale of a lowly tailor's rise against odds. Anushka has given a great understated performance, very different from the loud ones we are used to. By the way the designs are amazing!

Review of Batti Gul Meter Chalu

Wow is the word for this poetic comedy with a purpose. A film to watch! Sharddha is surely choosing well. Itís a story of friendship, modernity and courage. This is also a story of inflated electricity bills, development and where we are headed. With great comic timing a girl looks for her alliance herself, a father wants to remarry; a grandma wants the best for her granddaughter and so on.

To start with the language of the film appears to jar for a few minutes and then you start enjoying the poetry and the comedy in the way the characters speak. Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Divyendu Sharma have taken pains to catch the dialect and yet appear convincing. Hats off to the conception and execution! Youngsters have surely found a new way to speak for fun purposes. Bal and Thehra are words you may now hear frequently. Characterization is amazing. You will forget your worries when you watch this triangular love story that has an andolan packed inside.

Yami Gautamís appearance is refreshing and the court scenes reminded me of Jolly LLB. Totally enjoyable! Take your family. If you missed in the hall, see it on TV. Amazingly this film touches many issues but from the start it targets the Kalyan & Vikas slogan of the government. Modi detractors will enjoy this thoroughly.

Review of STREE

Never knew a horror film can be so entertaining, simple and funny all at once. It is for a reason that this film has enjoyed so much success! We endorse it. Just enjoy the film and forget logic. Sit back and relax and try not to get scared! Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor have managed a winner this time.

Review of SANJU

SANJU is wonderfully a different film and not so much a love story between girl and boy but between father and son. Raj Kumar Hirani has tackled a complex subject of a living star quite deftly. He has avoided much of the media hype on Sanjay Dutt's love lives and focused on the biggest story of his life - The TADA. It does not even touch upon a lot of stuff that people already know like his affair with Madhuri or his love for his Mother even. The full focus is on one friend and his father Sunil Dutt. Ranbir has done a wonderful job and it is heartening to know that the film has crossed the 100 Crore mark in 3 days.

Review of RAAZI

Raazi is a movie to go at any price. Alia Bhatt is simply amazing and you do not miss a male star at all. A touching tale of a Non professional spy. We do not wish to tell you much as we would rather you go to the theaters. Its good to see Alia's mom Soni Razdan after a long hiatus. She is an amazing actor but has nothing much to do in this film. Every character in this film is well played and etched out to suit the story. This is a human story that does not glorify the life of a spy instead it focuses on teh turmoil that a spy often goes through and the sacrifices s/he has to do. The bidai song stuck on to some of us.

Film Review of RAID

Loved the measured tempo of the film. Ajay Devgun excels in controlled performances. Eleana looks her part and manages not to distract with a subdued performance and dressing/makeup. Must watch for people who like to see a story in a film. Donít miss it on TV if you have not seen it in the hall. We are all praises for Mr Shukhla who has again come center stage after jolly LLB.

Film Review of PADMAN

Watched it on tv as was not sure about how embarrassing the film would be. Need not have worried, it was less embarrassing than Toilet ek kahani and more effective to boot. Akhshay has found meaning to his cinema at last. We like it!

Avengers

Its all graphics and granduer with a a somewhat simple storyline. Some new characters are introduced but the story does not charm as did Wonder Woman and Black Panther. We saw in IMax and enjoyed the film but there was not much to take back. Some were disaapaointed with the hype of Spiderman's performance. Good but Oversold!

Justice league

Another good film from the fraternity. If you have seen the earlier films and liked them you will like this one too.

Ittefaq

A very neat and clean film with no grime, dirt and sleaze, which is very unlike most crime thrillers we get to see. Very well made and Sonakshi manages to underplay.

Golmaal Again

Go with your young kids, they will love it. Ajay as Gopal is adorable in their eyes. As a bonus you get to just enjoy and relax.

Secret Superstar

Loved every bit of the film. A must watch for everyone. Great performances in a simple story and setup.

Bareilly Ki Barfi

Simple film. See it on TV as it is out of theaters. Some people in our team liked it. Some found is just too plain. Take your call!
