#HamariAdhuriKahani(Hindi) Rating: * ½ Corpulent mess- and I am not talking about the narrative alone. It’s Better left unsaid. A woe-b-gone extra-marital love story that comes across as forced and extremely intransigent. The ‘thanda’ zero chemistry pairing of a chunky looking #EmraanHashmi(I don’t know what I am doing look on his face) with a podgy #VidyaBalan(looking perplexed throughout)doesn’t allow for any affecting dramatics other than that of the puerile kind. It’s by far the weirdest love story I have seen ..and it has the most confounding unpalatable dialogues I have heard. Even the songs which usually are the highlight of a #MohitSuri film, lack memorability. #RajKumarRao tries hard to make his presence felt but the overall incredulity was just too galling for that to take effect. #MaheshBhatt(Story), #ShaguftaRafique(Dialogues) & #MohitSuri(Direction) we expected much better from you!#BalajiMotionPictures #EktaKapoor #FoxStarStudios #HemanshuMestry #VijaySingh

#JurassicWorld(English/2D/3D/Imax) Rating:* * Dino-SOUR! 22 years later the Spectacle has been extended from Park to World but the fear factor is missing! Well past it’s fly-by date this ‘brand’ishment has the ‘mite’ in terms of CGI and techno-giz with exec-producer #StevenSpielberg looking on dolefully but lacks the soul that made his  original sci-fi fantasy adventure thriller a must-see. Even #IrrfanKhan’s presence can add only dubious weight to this ‘monster’ production. Aimed at cultivating the new-gen viewers, this one may manage to momentarily ‘awe’ you(that’s if you are easy to please) but there’s no take home! #ColinTrevorrow #UniversalPictures #MoesArt #JascintoFernandes #ChandrasekharNeeli

#TheDuff (English) Rating: * ½  A dead bore! A tiresome teen romedy that bases it’s premise on an acronym and takes the formulaic track to curry favor amongst the easily pleased teen audience. This is basically ‘junk food’ for the brain if you are the kind who likes to be in-line with a trend. #DebparnaBanerjee #AbhinavChohan #OindrillaChakraborty  #CBSFilmsRelease #MVPEntertainment

Nothing worthy this week so go for last week’s best releases. They are much more worthy of your buck!

#TheAgeOfAdaline(English) Rating: * * * ½ A superbly plotted timeless romance that draws you in with conviction and grit in spite of  it’s confounding preposterous premise. The implausible becomes plausible here and that’s why it’s a winner. #Pictureworks #PVRPictures #BlakeLively #HarrisonFord #MichielHuisman #EllenBurstyn #AmandaCrew #KathyBaker #LeeTolandKrieger

#KaakkaMuttai(Tamil/EnglishSubtitles)) Rating:* * * ½ Highly endearing and heart-warming. This celebrated Tamil film with English subtitles, superb award winning performances from the two young leads and gritty realistic direction from cinematographer turned director MManikandan, draws you in with it’s aspirational, heart touching story and robust vivacity. #RameshThilaganathan  #JVignesh #MManikandan #Dhanush #FoxStarStudios #Wunderbar

hamari adhuri kahani movie के लिए चित्र परिणाम

Rating: * 1/2
 hamari adhuri kahani movie के लिए चित्र परिणाम
After their last disaster (Ghanchakkar)together, one would have expected Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan to tread more carefully where a project together was concerned. Granted , an extra-marital love story must have seemed like a juicy lure coupled with Mahesh Bhatt penning it,  hit director Mohit Suri at the helm, some soulful songs and Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji producing it. But known names in a project don’t always translate into a hit movie. And ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ is a case in point.

It’s a disaster from the word go. The story is simply put- WILD. A girl Vasudha(Vidya Balan) brought up in a highly conservative traditional Hindu family wants to fall in love and tells her father(Yatin Karyekar) so -  but he has already fixed up her marriage to Hari(Raj Kumar Rao) who has a similar self-righteous  upbringing so there’s no shaking the nuptials off. So off she goes aiming for the traditional homemaker role but her husband of a few months suddenly vanishes in the jungles of Orissa while escorting a few Americans there. 5 years later  Vasudha has a job as a florist in a star hotel and catches the glad-eye of the lonesome, dashing, big shot entrepreneur and owner of 108 hotels worldwide, Aarav(Emraan Hashmi). Impressed by her floral arrangements and conscientiousness in rushing to his room to save his ass during a fire-drill, he sets her up for a fall( in love kind) at his Dubai hotel.  A sudden unexpected visit to the Police station reveals that Hari is a terrorist and a fugitive from justice, and Inspector Patil expects her to inform him the minute her husband contacts her. Vasudha decides to scoot to Dubai for some much needed relief and promptly falls in love with an over attentive Aarav. After a bout of revelations the two are all set to legalise their relationship when a decrepit hairy Hari steps right back into the frame.

I won’t get into any more details of that ridiculous story but needless to say there’s very little you can connect with here. Even the emotions come across as fake. There’s a hotel singer (Amala), Aarav’s mother who plays the piano and sings to her paralysed semi-comatose lover, an angst ridden widow(Suhasini Mulay) who is constantly egging her daughter Vasudha, to throw away her mangal sutra and live a life free of all societal encumberments and Aarav’s friend and partner, who stations himself as Aarav’s confidant and conscience. At times the sub-text is even suggestive of a gay attraction between the two.

Scenes and sequences have been concocted without even a basic understanding of how impractical and incredulous they would seem to the viewing public. After expressing her love and quite physically too, Vasudha is struck by a bout of guilt triggered by the name inked on the inside of her wrist and she walks out into the desert trolley bag in hand. And you are left totally confounded.
This film has a semi-autobiographical slant to the story penned by Mahesh Bhatt himself  and is powered by some of the most irrational intransigent dialogue ever written(by Shagufta Rafique).
There are weighty issues out here and it’s not just the narrative that I am talking about. Mohit Suri’s workmanlike direction misses the wood for the trees and the ‘thanda’ chemistry between Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi makes this desert bound drama lose it’s grip in the quick sand of forced unflattering togetherness. Indifference  is all encompassing. And no amount of puerile theatrics can get you interested. It’s a pity though. The story had it’s fair share of possibilities but the slap-dash formulaic treatment just doesn’t allow for any breathing space. And the convoluted sub-plots just make it seem like overreaching without anything substantial to hold on to. Go for it only if you want to be seen throwing your money away!
