#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
Hindi Film review
Film: NH8 Road To Nidhivan
Cast: Auroshika Dey, Ravneet kaur, Satyakaam, Anand, Arjun Fauzdar, Swaroopa Ghosh
Director: Muninder Gupta
Rating: * ½
Found footage appears to be the favorite template of recent horror film makers. Newbie director Muninder Gupta takes to that route in order to score his own potential horror hit. But despite having a proven template for success, his attempt falls incoherent because of it’s many wayward and inexplicable thrusts into hyper-mechanics that appear unsound and fail every test of logic.
Nidhivan , near Mathura en route NH8, is a place shrouded in myth of the para-psychological kind. Two young couples undertake an assignment to explore the horror sightings around that inglorious forrest, by means of a documentary. Throughout their journey from Mumbai by road, they experience inexplicable phenomena and once they enter the forbidden forest anything goes. At the end of it all, there appears to be only one survivor from the perilous escapade. And even she may be a faux one!
The film is mysterious in it’s trajectory. For most of the narrative we are treated to shaky camerawork in dark , poorly lit surroundings causing great strain to the eyes as well as to credibility. The four filmmakers central to the plot, are shrill in their outpourings- liberally studded with ‘yaars’ after every few words. In fact there’s not much inventiveness to the dialogues. Every dialogue appears to be repeated at least four to five times. It’s quite a silly, incredulous, illogical and contrary narrative that puts you off with it’s puerile tricks and facile thrusts into para-psychic phenomenon. Even the ending is quite contrary to everything that transpired before it. And you wont be surprised, for sure!
