#Badmashiyaan:FunNeverEnds(Hindi) Rating: * Messing with #VantagePoint style and based on the Korean flick ‘Couples’ but without the ingenuity and intelligence required. Back and forth narrative proves tedious and unbecoming for a romcom that doesn’t have any logical story to tell. It’s 2 hrs and 8 minutes of incredible tedium!#RaviGutte #ParullGossain #AmitKhanna #SiddhantGupta #SuzannaMukherjee #KaranMehra #SharibHashmi #GunjanMalhotra

#HeyBro(Hindi) Rating:*  A twisted fraternal twins story where one bro searches for his lost family, this one is meant to be funny but grates on your nerves every moment of it’s runtime. Simply unpalatable! #AjayChandhok #VidhiAcharya #NitzNSony #PranavVatsa #GaneshAcharya #ManinderSingh #NupurSharma #HanifHilal #ParagDesai #UniversalCommunications

#DirtyPolitics(Hindi) Rating: * Dirty yes..and disappointing too. Too fragmented to make sense or provide entertainment. More than the dark side of politicians it hopes to expose, this film shows the darker side of desperation that good actors have to undergo in an industry that has little value for their unshirkable abilities. What a great waste of sterling talent!  Mallika’s skin show doesn’t have the drawing power anymore. It’s too crude, passé and horrific seeing her trying to seduce old, pot-bellied and decrepit men – too many of them in fact!  #MallikaSherawat #JackieShroff #KCBokadia #ParullGossain #BMBMusic&MagneticsLtd #AnupamKher #AtulKulkarni #GovindNamdeo #NaseeruddinShah #OmPuri #RajpalYadav

#CoffeeBloom(Hindi) Rating: * * * A Coming-to- terms of sorts with one’s own intransigencies, this film that explores the mind of a deeply distressed soul searching for peace in his old haunts is a deep and enveloping experience. Craftily narrated, this film speaks volumes through great set-ups and smart performances by #ArjunMathur, #SugandhaGarg & #MohanKapoor. #ManuWarrier’s directorial touches are quite ingenious and impressive. #SpeakingTreePictures #LongLiveCinema #MoesArt #SarjitaJain #SaurabhRathore #ShabditaShrivastav #NatashaBandodkar

#AgainstTheSun (English) Rating:* * * An Intense world War II survivalist drama about three men on a life raft adrift in The Pacific Ocean ( 63 million square miles), one of the most harrowing true stories of that turbulent period, this one may not have the drawing power of #AnjelinaJolie’s #Forbidden but it’s not easily forgotten either.  #AghorRajProductions #TomFelton #UniversalCommunications #ParagDesai #GarretDillahunt #JakeAbel #BrianFalk

#IndiasDaughter(Documentary/English/Hindi) Rating: * * * ½ A shadowy re-enactment of the entire sorry tale that led to a massive emotional outpouring of grief and anguish against brutal, inhuman crimes against women triggered by the heinous ‘Nirbhaya’ rape and murder in the national capital , Delhi.  It’s powerful, factual and raises issues that hit our parliamentarians where it hurts most- Not that our media hasn’t covered all this before. Image is everything I guess and when the  attack is done from a foreign platform the hurt is long-lasting. Rape is a heinous crime irrespective of country, caste, religion ,community.  The film is a historic capture of a movement that began as an outpouring of grief and anguish against brutalising crimes against women... This Film depicts that with sensitivity and is a powerful denouement against our patriarchal value system...doesn't matter that it was made by a Britisher. That's incidental. It’s a must watch!  #BBC4Storyville  #LesleeUdwin #NickFraser https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Tfaurfg7EQ&feature=youtu.be&app=desktop

Synopsis:In one of the most harrowing true stories of World War II, three US Navy airmen crash land their torpedo bomber in the South Pacific and find themselves on a tiny life raft, surrounded by open ocean. No food. No water. No hope of rescue. Against incredible odds, these three virtual strangers must survive storms, sharks, starvation – and each other – as they try to sail more than a thousand miles to safety

Review:
When a ‘Harry Potter’ actor(Tom Felton who plays Draco Malfoy in the super popular cinematic series), turns his attention to a World War II based survivalist drama in the high seas, he certainly seems to have come of age.

Arriving just a few weeks later than Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken," which also featured a sequence involving a life raft adrift in the Pacific ocean during WWII, AGAINST THE SUN is a harrowing true story of three US Navy Airmen who crash land their torpedo bomber in the South Pacific and find themselves on a tiny life raft, surrounded by open ocean with no food, no water and absolutely no hope of rescue.

Just imagine yourself adrift on a life-raft bang in the middle of 63 million square miles of never ending sea perhaps larger even  than every single square inch of dry land on the entire planet, and you will understand the magnitude of the sheer desperation the trio must have experienced. And frankly no film can ever bring that home to you even if the makers tried hard enough. While ‘Unbroken’ ventured past the surviving-at-sea drama to capture, incarceration and torture sequences, ‘Against the Sun’ sticks with just survival and it’s a tough one to sit through. In fact, director Brian Falk does well to make the experience a near real one, showing the three fight the inclement elements and themselves to survive an ordeal that even the most resilient would have found difficult to. The film focuses only on the three central characters and stays with them the entire way. Against the most incredible odds, these three, unfamiliar to each other,  must survive storms, sharks, starvation and each other as they sail more than a thousand miles to safety.

The film is based on Robert Trumbull's "The Raft," a true account of a harrowing 34-day ordeal. On 16th  January 1942, pilot Harold Dixon (Garret Dillahunt), bombardier Tony Pastula (Tom Felton), and radioman Gene Aldrich (Jake Abel) crashlanded a Douglas Devastator torpedo bomber  which ran out of fuel, without sighting the Enterprise(the only US Ship stationed for reconnaissance)  in the Pacific Ocean, with just a life raft and no food, no flares, no water, no supplies - all of which had gone down with the plane.
In terms of thematic content "Against the Sun" also shares elements with bigger glossier productions, "All Is Lost" and "Life of Pi," so in comparison may not be rated on par -mainly because of it’s lower production values. But despite this handicap the film throws-up a stirring experience of survival against all odds with writer/director Brian Falk and co-writer Mark David Keegan staying true to the experience and the struggles thereof with a grit and determination that is praise worthy.

 There’s no resorting to unnecessary flashbacks or individual stories to stir up the still waters. The depth comes from the drama between the trio, getting to know their personalities, the dynamics between them and some details from the past. Their relationship while in the raft , is the focal point and it never really shifts from that. So the experience for the audience is deeply affecting. You get emotional just seeing them in such deep waters, struggling to eke out methods of survival when there are apparently, none. The special effects are solid despite the budgetary constraints and the performances absolutely realistic. All three actors lose weight and their starry baggage, to turn on that inner light of talent that makes them one with the characters they play. This is a worthy watch, no doubts about that!
