Picks and piques/Snippet Film reviews 14Feb2014/Johnson Thomas
Gunday(Hindi) Rating: * * A reverse flick that puts YashRaj out of the picture! Attempting a KJO stroke( a la Agneepath reboot) with their very own Kala Pathar, and coming out looking dusty and antiquated, this film has only the vigor and vitality of it’s lead performances (Ranveer, Arjun, Priyanka, Irrfan, Saurabh) to keep it afloat-if at all!
Her(English) Rating: * * * ½ Her is a simple film that offers a view of love that could become the relationship of the future. It is absurd yet emotionally touching!
Winter’s Tale( English) Rating: * * A romantic flight of fancy and fantasy that doesn’t even come close to involving!
Robocop( English) Rating: * * * Fantastically orchestrated actioner. It’s got the kinesis to keep you in your seats!
Vampire Academy( English) Rating: * * blood sucking Tedious teen rant that takes the vampire legend to untold depths!
