#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

Review:
Another of those med-sci-fi set-ups where the dead are brought back to life by enterprising  scientists, who eventually find out they bit off more than they could chew. 

The Lazarus Effect movie के लिए चित्र परिणाम
"The Lazarus Effect" is as ineffective as it is disappointing. A limp excuse for a horror film, this lame duck wannabe takes elements from more accomplished movies and makes them look silly.  
Frank (Mark Duplass) and Zoe (Olivia Wilde),  are a couple of researchers at a California university who are developing a serum that could help revive the dead. With their team—computer ace Niko (Donald Glover), Clay (Evan Peters) and Ava (Sarah Bolger), they manage to revive a dead dog. Bu something has gone wrong somewhere because the Dog doesn’t behave like his former self. Then there’s a takeover of the lab by a Big Biotech firm and the research gets scuttled. But the team wants to prove that the research belongs to them , so sneak into the lab and end-up causing a casualty. Zoe gets electrocuted. A grieving Frank decides to zap her with the serum and bring her back.  She comes alive but again things seem to have gone horribly wrong. She is a different personality altogether – more zombie like and with frightening powers. Like ‘Lucy’ before her, she begins utilizing 100% of her brain's functions to develop strange powers. She is uncontrollable and a threat to those inside the lab. So will she survive or will the rest be eliminated so that a sequel idea can be entertained?
The narrative is predictable and tripe, much without thrills or chills. Nothing scary, nothing tense and really no resounding effects to make you jerk-up in your seats.

The screenplay by Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater , borrows liberally from  "Frankenstein" , "Flatliners"  and the aforementioned ‘Lucy.’ There’s really no great thought involved in this disarming assemblage. The runtime is short so one doesn’t have to feel the pinch of endurance. Most likely, you’ll walk out with indifference writ large on your face. That’s as much reaction you are likely to get from this lackluster outing!
