Picks and Piques/Snippet Film Reviews/21Feb2014/Johnson Thomas

Highway(Hindi):Rating: * * ½ A Nat-geo styled road trip with Spell-binding cinematography encompassing virgin vistas of the west and north, a few brilliant moments and rustic folksy music strung together by a wonky, untenable ,flimsy plotline.
Dee Saturday Night(Hindi) :Rating: * ½ Aiming for the moral high-ground but actually immersed in sin wrapped in a warped ideology
Darr@The Mall(Hindi) :Rating: *  *  Thin on scares and storyline, resplendent in generic clich├ęs. Don’t expect any Darr at this maul!
Karar-The Deal(Hindi): Rating: *  * It could have been  a sexy, sensuous serenade through UK and South Africa with remix versions of universal’s acclaimed hits setting the rhythm. But this unacknowledged remake of ‘Wild things’ gets away with sex, sleaze and mayhem because of it’s two lusty leading ladies Jyoti Rana and Mahek. It’s as exploitative as they come!
The Monuments Men(English) : Rating: *  *  *  A mammoth Art heist during the second world war that helped assuage the feelings of those affected by war. It’s basically history in a film-not exciting but nevertheless worthy! 
 
Gulabi engaging!Gang(Documentary) Rating: *  *  *  1/2 Stunning, stinging and heartfelt. This documentary in Hindi, about Sampat Pal’s crusade along with her pink brigade,  to put an end to violence and injustice against women is both revealing and immensely engrossing!


Pompeii (English/3D) Rating: *  *  Paul W Anderson’s corny 3D adventure set against the volcanic destruction of the Roman city in 79AD does not have the were-withal to strike it rich
