#Welcome2Karachi(Hindi) Rating: *  * Playing Dumb. This one dumbs it down to the bottom of the pit and proves more tedious and boring than entertaining. Quite a come down after all that promotional swagger. Two dumb idiots set out to have fun and end up saving the world. Havn’t we seen that many times over? There’s no humor here ..just a lot of stupidity that tries to pass off as funny!Watch the trailer instead…

#Me( English) Rating: * *  Slow and stressful. The ponderous narrative centered around justifying the film’s title is obvious and off-putting. Aims for psychological edge-of-seat thrills but  gets waylaid by verbosity and dull performances. The mental illness at the core of this story deserved much better elaboration than what’s done here. The entire set-up appears to be amateurish and un-enlivening. #SammeerSatish #AdilAman #GurpreetKaur #TheIllusionistsFilmCompany #DrSantoshSawane

#ChaarCutting(Hindi/Shorts) Rating: * * * ½ The best bet this week. Four shorts by young unsung directors that will floor you with their poignancy, techno smarts and depth. #ManilaRunning #Blouse #Bawdi #SkinDeep #VikramadityaMotwane #JamuuraTalkies  #AditiVasudev #NaveenKasturia #PriyansuPainyuli #SonalJoshi #PreetiSharma #SumeetVyas #ImranRashid #UdayChandra #OlivierBorten #HardikMehta #AnujGulati #VivekSoni #VijetaKumar


#IshqeDariyaan(Hindi) Rating: No Show. A romantic drama. #Evelyn #Mahaakshay

#PSePMTak (Hindi) Rating: * *Of corruption and  ‘Dirty Politics,’ all old hat as far as Hindi cinema is concerned. An attempt at grotesque dark satire comes unstuck. There’s nothing new or interesting on display here. Even the much hyped about #MeenakshiDixit who doesn’t look anything like Madhuri Dixit, cuts a sorry figure. Director #KundanShah doesn’t seem to have regained his touch of yore(#JaaneBhiDoYaaron). #ParullGossain #KundanShah

#ILoveDesi(Hindi) Rating: No Show  A romantic comedy. #PankajBatra #RockyDaswani #AkshayKumar #VedantBali #PriyankaShah.

#SanAndreas(English/3D) Rating: * * ½ This big bombastic Hollywood disaster movie with more CGI representations than real time shoots, promotes former pro wrestler turned actor #DwayneJohnson as the rescuer par excellence who saves his own family and two others while every one else struggles to find a foothold in this lop-sided depiction of the greatest disaster ever. Seemed like everyone else was expendable but the lead family. Life is just a side show in this one. Larger takes the cake!  #WarnerBros #AnkitAgarwal #GeorgeJohn #VillageRoadshowPictures #TimeWarner #DwayneJohnson #CarlaGugino #BradPeyton #KylieMinogue #ArchiePunjabi #IoanGruffud #PaulGiamatti #AlexandraDaddario

#Maggie(English) Rating: * * * A surprisingly engaging and totally involving zombie flick that’s not quite the usual Hollywood pack rat. #AbigailBreslin does a challenging turn as the teenager infected by a virus that will eventually turn her into a zombie. And #ArnoldSchwarzenegger is  quite wonderful as the doting father pained by the unimaginable plight of his lovely daughter. #HenryHobson #JohnScott3 #PVRPictures #AbigailBreslin #ArnoldSchwarzenegger

Hindi film review
Johnson Thomas
Weird Dynamics
Film: Me
Cast: Adil Aman, Sammeer Satiish, Gurpreet Kaur.
Directed by Sammeer Satiish
Rating: * ½

A film that prides itself on being a well researched effort that involves a mental illness called Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, ‘Me’ is about a loving wife turned Psychologist Sarah  Kapoor(Gurpreet Kaur) who uses her husband Aryan( Sameer Satish) as guinea pig for her research on OCD, gets lauded for that effort and promptly sets about flirting with a noted Psychiatrist, Dr Khan( Adil Aman) ostensibly to get his help in curing her husband. The paranormal and the contra-normal  take centre-stage thereafter. 
Aryan and Sarah start experiencing strange phenomenon in their lives. it almost appears that Sarah has a doppelganger. Aryan deteriorates further into a catatonic state and Dr Khan’s efforts appear destined to fail.

 The premise was definitely interesting, but the treatment  fails to drum up interest in the dynamics that are in play here. The presentation appears a tad simplistic and terribly amateurish. Performances too sound stilted and unnaturally poised. While the ending does throw up some surprises, it’s quite excruciating waiting around for it to unfurl. The ponderous pace and the deliberateness with which the conversations have been engineered, doesn’t allow for any great involvement. this one’s really tough to sit through!
