#HumptySharmaKiDulhaniya (Hindi) Rating: * * * Fanciful, yet copiously Entertaining Romance. The teasing, amiable, inveigling chemistry between the two young stars at the helm #VarunDhawan, #AliaBhatt, their wonderfully apt co-actors (#SidharthShukla, #SahilVaid #GauravPandey #AshutoshRana et al),earthy, rambunctious musical serenades, smart humorous repartees and assured, confident helming by newbie #ShashankKhaitan makes for a magnetic enticement. Ek baar Dekhna tho banta hai! #KaranJohar #DharmaProductions #Niloferq
· #MunnaMangeMembsaab(Hindi) Rating: * The abuse of a naïve actor #OmkarDasManikpuri continues. After the miserable #Ibn-e-batuta comes yet another disastrous outing- only this time it’s worse. No story to tell, no acting to speak of. Just hoping to fly on the wings of senseless ambition. It’s an unworthy one sentence story idea of an ugly guy wanting to marry a memsahib, just because his mother says so- which has been given too much runtime and reel space than it deserves. The implosion was expected! #AshwaniShukla #AltairMedia #ShareephMansuriSaranawala #HimaniShivpuri #RazzakKhan
#BollywoodVilla (Hindi/3D) Rating: * Confounding, Ridiculous show reel for extras that find it difficult to earn a foothold in the mainstream. The so-called mystery about a killer on the loose while the shooting of a film is on in a villa, is just an excuse for some unexciting raunchiness, shabby exposure of female body parts and stereotyped villainy. The 3D only makes it worse. #DilshadWadia #MushtaqKhan #AshwaniShukla #AltaiurMedia
#LaiBhaari (Marathi) Rating: * * #RiteishDeshmukh’s attempt at making a back door entry into Bollywood action hero stereotype, is not a pretty sight at all. Especially because he lacks the musculature and moves to convince. Even #NishikanthKamath faulters in the helming here!
#DawnOfthePlanetOfTheApes (English/3D) Rating: * * * ½ This Superbly rendered, vicariously structured, engaging sequel spiel about a face-off between humans and Gorillas makes for beguiling action powered entertainment. #AndySerkis #JasonClark #MattReeves #GaryOldman #KeriRussell #MarkBomback #RickJaffa #AmandaSilver #MichaelSeresin
