#SuperNani(Hindi) Rating: * * Oh No! Not #KhoonBhariMaang again? The twist is that she’s a Nani now who gets into the same get-up,Kyun Ki..I won’t go there. Needless to say she is all right and her family are all wrong. Old fashioned, antiquated plotting, strong on melodrama , banshee theatrics, hyperventilating hysterics and low on artistry. Rekha looks gorgeous and Sharman sounds strange. Moral Sermonising has little connect. #Rekha #IndraKumar #ParagDesai #UniversalPR #MarutiInternational #SharmanJoshi
 

#RoarTigersOfTheSundarbans(Hindi) Rating: * * Faking it! What a b(o)ore! Seeking vengeance but not getting close. No ‘real’ tigers to see just a lot of shadow dancing around in the wilds of the Sunderbans (which is stunning no doubt). The digital anime though competent,doesn’t feel alright! #KamalSadanah #AbisRizvi #ABFilms #AbhinavShukla #NoraFatehi #HimarshaV #AliQuli #AchintKaur #PranayDixit #SubratDutta #VarinderSinghGhuman

A revenge story set in the Sunderbans, the story is about a slain photojournalist’s brother going back to the scene of the killing to avenge his death at the hands of a white tigress.

Really? It’s an incredulous story idea- one that wouldn’t warrant a film on a normal night. But Bollywood producers are by no means stricken by that bug. They are much more adventurous and far-reaching- as exposed by the greenlighting of such a hapless script.
Man-eating tiger hunts have been traversed in middling mainstream efforts like ‘Kaal’ and ‘The Forrest,’ this one though has very little purchase and more so because the ‘real tiger sightings’ are limited to fractiously digitized efforts that conforms to requirement but doesn’t arouse as much awe as required.

Pandit (Abhinav Shukla) assembles a team of commandos to enter the prohibited core of the forest with help from local guide Madhu (Pranay Dixit) and tracker Jhumpa (Himarsha V).But their plan is certainly not fool proof and neither is the build-up to the danger sightings orchestrated amidst the thickset mangrove forests that fortunately lends creepy and shadowy thrills quite naturally.
 
The struggle for survival in a fish-out-of-water-situation doesn’t appear all that appealing either. Mainly because the plotting is quite uninteresting, the screenplay lacks bite and the characters just plod around shaking in their boots or looking fearless and antagonistic whenever required. Not much directorial skill on display and neither is there anything exemplary to hail here. Cinematographer Michael Watson goes over-the-top with angled shots and slo-mos but the overall visual effect is one of awe-inspiring regality- much like a NatGeo film. Unfortunately those well-meaning shots can’t really make up for a c(l)ub-footed story and clueless acting!
