Picks and Piques/Snippet Film reviews/20th Dec 2014/Johnson Thomas
Dhoom 3(Also in Imax): Rating: * * ½ Though tiresome, Spurious and derived, this film will still manage a mark-up thanks to Aamir Khan’s captivating presence, Uday Chopra’s sense of the ridiculous and Katrina Kaif’s ravishing poise. The stunts as in the case of Bollywood actioners are showcased in piecemeal fashion, the CGI and FX look shoddy in slow-mo and the story sounds ridiculously hackneyed, Just can’t suspend our disbelief for the three hour long runtime!
Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2(English/Animation/3D)
Rating: * * The animation looks good enough to eat but the story just doesn’t have the thrill or intensity to be full-filling!
