#SulemaniKeeda(Hindi) Rating: * * * Peddling attitude rather than substance. The content is ephemeral but the performances and dialogues come across naturally. Mildly humorous, Ironical bitter-sweet bromantic engagement - even though the script lacks solidity and bite.

#BhopalAPrayerForRain(English/Hindi) Rating: * * * Revisiting a terrifying human tragedy without the requisite homework. A wishy-washy tale of death and debilitating agony, this one prefers to stay on the right side of the Americans! Even so it’s a decent watch. #MartinSheen #MischaBarton #RajpalYadav #SaharaMovies #PerceptPictures #RisingStarProductions #RenukaGuptaPR #TanishtaaChatterjee #SatishKaushik
#ExodusGodsAndKings (English Imax 3D) Rating: * * * Visually majestic but a little stunted in it’s expansiveness. Christian Bale stars as Moses in director Ridley Scott's Biblical epic based on the Book of Exodus. Scott makes it much more realistic and believable but unfortunately that takes away from the expected fantasy experience. Doesn’t have the campy involvement that made DeMille’s ‘BenHur’ oh so memorable. #FoxStarIndia #RidleyScott #ChristianBale #UniversalCommunications #ParagDesai #JoelEdgerton #BenKingsley #AaronPaul #JohnTorturro #IndiraVarma #MarAavalverde #GolshiftehFarahani #SigourneyWeaver

More Keeda than Content!

Cast: : Naveen Kasturia, Mayank Tewari, Aditi Vasudev, Karan Mirchandani, Krishna Singh Bisht
Director: Amit Masurkar
Rating: * * *
A bromantic comedy about two less than talented struggling wannbe Bollywood writers who try to peddle their mediocrity in an industry that virtually thrives on such. So it won’t come as a surprise to anyone to see that eventually one of them sees the light of the cinema screen as an end to his struggle while the other chooses a path that might lead him to a more romantic end-result.
Amit Masurkars’s first time directorial effort is mainly distinguished by the cannily identifiable humorous moments that characterize the two friends’ Dulal(Naveen Kasturia) and Mainak(Mayank Tewari) struggle to gain a toe-hold in Bollywood.
The two characters play out like a stereotype of the migrant outsider in Mumbai who lacks the smoothness or class to fit into a fun loving social swirl dominated by the high and haughty. They are eternally horny, have no compunction telling lies, hit on unsuspecting girls anywhere they see them and attend poetry readings just so that they can peddle their vulgar musings to a brain dead audience. They try to market a story idea to established Bollywood denizens but fail to gain any wattage so instead sidle up to a producer’s luckless son Gonzo Kapoor(Karan Mirchandani) who perceives himself as an auteur with an out-of-the-box foresight. Gonzo lures them into writing for him but the heart-broken, brooding Dulal’s imminent fascination for a bohemian photographer Ruma(Aditi Vasudev) all set to leave for a two year stint in the US, derails the effort big time.
It’s a simple plot with not much of a story to tell. Two room-mates, aspiring screenwriting team, who have zero talent and are strong on desires aspire to make it to the marquee in Bollywood. With less than ordinary lives on display there had to be something far more enticing to manage the engagement. The duo’s seemingly insignificant and ordinary journey has highly engaging moments mainly because of the insightful asides, quirky attitudes, witty dialogues and an overwhelming sense of fun that limits itself up to the half-way mark. It’s an urban comedy that retains it’s freshness because of some inspired casting, smart performances, light-hearted narration , enticing background score and spiffy editing. This is by and large a fun film- unfortunately the fun doesn’t stretch all the way to the end credits.
