#MrX (Hindi) Rating: * * plying the #MrIndia trick but without any thrills or excitement. Quite a bizarre mix of intrigue, romance and puckered investigation.   #VikramBhatt #MukeshBhatt #EmraanHashmi #VisheshFilms #FoxStarFilms  #AmryaDastur #ArunodaySingh #HemanshuMestry

#Best #Court(Marathi/Hindi/Gujrati/English) Rating: * * * *  Topical contentious issues woven into a simple yet stirring narrative framed by punctuating irony. Excellent gritty realistic performances and sterling direction makes you sit up and take notice. #ChaitanyaTamhane and #VivekGomber are guys to watch out for...Get Courting fast! #ParullGossain #ChaitanyaTamhane #VivekGomber #RamKondilkar

#Best #MargaritaWithAStraw( Hindi/English) Rating: * * * It’s got a one point agenda –to humanize the differently abled( most specifically those affected by cerebral palsy). With not much of a story to tell, the film does it by showing the central character indulging in sexual acts. Despite the implausibility and disbelief that evokes there’s more than ample moments to affect and involve you. Performances are the key here.  #SpicePR #ShonaliBose #NileshManiyar #KalkiKoechlin #SayaniGupta #Revathy #Viacom18 #Lakhotia #IshanTalkies

#NanakShahFakir(Hindi) Rating: * * ½ Pious and respectful of GuruNanakji’s preachings, this biopic on one of the pre-eminent Gurus of the Sikh faith, has the production values,  orchestral score,scale and dimensions to be epical but the lethargic and compromised treatment doesn’t allow for any great involvement. #RenukaGuptaPR #GurbaniMediaPvtLtd #AAFilmsNationwide

#NH8RoadToNidhivan(Hindi) Rating: * ½  Using a found footage template , the wrong way, this horror flick is shaky, dark(minimal lighting), implausible and incoherent. Repetitive dialogues and hyperventilating performances don’t lend any grip either. #WhiteLion #RomanaRaz #MunindraGupta #MGFilms #GarageProductions #NiharikaJha

#EkAdbhutDakshinaGurudakshina(Hindi) Rating: * * A meandering social drama pitting love & betrayal against duty, this one prolongs the agony through unnecessary subplots and silly dialogues. #HimanshuJhunjhunwala #DwaparPromoters #MoonwalkProductions  #GirishKarnad #RupaGanguly #RajeevPillai #SulagnaPanigrahi #RajeshShrinagarpure #AayushPhadnis #EshaanPhadnis

#TheWaterDiviner(English) Rating: * * ½  A fantasy woven around the #WorldWarI #BattleForGalipoli, this film flashes back and forth from past to present in a time fudge that leaves you largely unsettled and disinterested. Well intentioned but laborious!  #HardlyAnonymous #RusselCrowe #OlgaKurylenko #YilmazErdogan #CemYilmaz #JaiCourtney #RyanCorr #BenOToole #JamesFraser

A tale of duty, love, betrayal and revenge set in the naxal infested area, Purulia, in West Bengal, this film directed by Kiran Phadnis is long drawn and meandering in it’s telling.  A young orphan finds a  secure home with a dance Guru( an unlikely Girish Karnad). And he grows up in the Guru’s household alongside the guru’s daughter(Sulagna Panigrahi) whom he loves. But the girl is more interested in flashier Gambhira, who whisks her away in marriage soon enough only to ill-treat her later through copious revelations of his true cruel, naxalite self. The orphan boy, now man and a dancer of repute himself,  is heartbroken by his loss at love and goes off into the Himalayas in search of peace. A few years later he hears of Gambhira’s treatment of his dear Guruji/benefactor  and this prompts him to return  to a face-off with his rival ending in protracted tragedy.

The narrative while pinning it’s hopes on embellishing the Guru-Shishya relationship tends to go all over the place with unnecessary subplots featuring love, betrayal, revenge and war between  ideologies. It’s neither interesting nor involving. The unnecessary indulgences in formulaic clichés adds to the boredom. Rupa Ganguly has been wasted in a role that has nothing much to do while Girish Karnad looks quite ill-at-ease as the dancer Guru. The relatively fresh younger cast manage to look comely even if they don’t appear to have the skills to lend their performances some much needed gravitas. Strictly avoidable fare this!
