#JaiHoDemocracy(Hindi) Rating: * * A political satire set around an asinine India-Pakistan border skirmish is just a little too contrived and unpalatable to curry favor. The piece-meal humor plays along as an after-thought. With too many similar movies that came before it, this one just doesn’t wing it! #RenukaGuptaPr #OmPuri #SeemaBiswas #AdilHussain #SatishKaushik #AnnuKapoor #RanjtKapoor #BikramjitSinghBhullar #IndianProductionHouse #
#RangEIshq( Hindi) Rating: *1/2 yet another version on the bloody, tragic-romance this one is neither accomplished nor satisfying. Treated with old-fashioned styling and amateurish crude flourishes, this one has new faces with skills better suited for horror tales and a DOP that doesn’t really know when to cut away from horrendous close-ups. #SanjayBhushanPR #HungamaPR #RudraAbhishekFilms #MatesEntertainment #SrinivasAnjanappa #JayveerPanghaal #MuzahidKhan #KavyaKiran #DeepakKumar
#KaagazKeFools(Hindi) Rating: * * A ridiculous drama that fails to live up to it’s funny title, this one just drains out all the excitement by adopting a moralistic and sermonizing tone. #HimanshuJhunjhunwala #DwaparMedia #FaisalKapadi #AnilKumarChaudhary #GlobeFilmyEntertainment #PVRPictures #VinayPathak #RaimaSen #MugdhaGodse #SaurabhShukla #
#IshqKeParindey(Hindi) Rating: * * ½ The best of the Bollywood lot this week, this one’s divined around Lucknowi tehzeeb, set within the elite set-up in Lucknow amidst palatial havelis and romantic ruins from the past- a violent action love story with fresh attractive faces, some meticulously designed moments to keep you engaged and interested. The ending though is a little too contrived to justify what came before it. #Altairmedia #AshwaniShukla #ShakirKhan #RishiVerma #PriyankaMehta #ShyamMorionPictures #VIPCinema
#AvengersAgeOfUltron(English/Imax/3D) Rating: * * * ½ The successful mammoth marvel superheroes action franchise gets a second edition which does more of the same thing with some mild doses of humor and wild action engagement. Imax 3D just magnifies the experience three-fold. It does just about enough to keep the fans salivating ! #ParagDesai #UniversalCommunications #DisneyUTV #IndiaMarvel #MarvelComics #JossWhedon #RajnigandhaShekhawat #SujataChanda #ChrisEvans #ScarlettJohanssen #RobertDowneyJr #SiddharthRoyKapoor
#KungFuKiller(English) Rating:* * * This is a well plotted traditional martial arts genre movie that’s goes contemporary with it’s well-plotted character play – a movie that has what it takes to be thrilling, gripping and poignant

#X(English) Rating: * * A reasonably x-citing genre thriller. Poor helming and ham-fisted treatment mar the show though! #HyderGolaRelease #AriesFilms #JonHewitt #MAGuddu #GudnetProductions

Synopsis: Marvel Studios "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time has Tony Stark trying to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program – from whereon things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, have to pull on their superhuman alter-egos to combat the villainous Ultron emerges.

Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision
This one’s a tough nut to crack. Not an intelligent one but a spectacularly hollow shell that allows it’s designer exteriors to overshadow it’s shallow/hollow content. Even if you're a diehard fan of all the super-hero franchises and have been faithfully keeping pace with their origin and sequel stories you still might find this one a little off-track from what you’ve grown up with. The film opens with the Earth's Mightiest Heroes beating up some soldiers that we'd almost feel sorry for if they weren't probably Nazis. The fortress under Avenger assault is protected by an impenetrable forcefield with it’s power switch on the outside so it’s pretty much easy going for the super-heroes. They get to exercise their brawn and special skills without breaking much sweat. The flurry of action is not much more than a blur of moment in which locating your fave super-hero becomes a guessing game for the viewers. A couple of super-sped-up fight scenes later, our heroes head home victorious, the prized sceptre securely in tow.
Tony Stark is not content with that workout so it's not long before he has accidentally unleashed the titular Ultron, a rogue AI with a near-limitless supply of robot bodies, upon the world. What's worse, Ultron has Loki's scepter and he's probably thinking up extinction plans for corrupt humans. Ultron allies, twins, Scarlet Witch, who has psychic powers, and Quicksilver, who is really fast, the result of Hydra experimentation on humans with special powers, start off on his side but realizing his nihilistic intentions soon enough, they switch to becoming avengers themselves.
While the first half is full on speed, the second revs-up gradually, allowing for greater development and conviction and in the climactic struggle it’s just spectacle all the way- An immensely satisfying one at that.
The one-liners that were a highlight of the first Avengers assemblage, come through quite fluently- unfortunately the gravitas of the first one is missing. The character dynamics are interestingly laid out though. The effects are show-piece stuff so no complaints on that front. The scripting-largely plot – is a little short on content. What Avengers: Age of Ultron succeeds in is ; introducing a worthy opponent for its superheroes and giving the latter a few new interesting things to do. The action , though enjoyable is not exactly in the class of the first edition. In the first “Avengers,” writer-director Joss Whedon did a wonderful job getting all the elements together at a perfect pitch. This time round, it’s not up to that standard.
