#DilDhadakneDo(Hindi) Rating: * *1/2 A ship-board family drama that doesn’t pick up steam or allow for emotive attachment. The 2 hr 50 min runtime is a weight that pulls it down further disallowing any chance of swimming with the tide. Performances are quite good and the writing has it’s sublime moments but the high society characterizations don’t ring true, Aamir’s ‘Pluto’ avatar as narrator is tedious and the contrived ending doesn’t fit in with realistic tenets. #ZoyaAkhtar #ReemKatgi #ExcelEntertainment #FarhanAkhtar #RanveerKapoor #AnushkaSharma #AnilKapoor #ShefaliShah #SpicePR #JungleeMovies #AjayBijli #AamirKhan

#LateefTheUnfoldStory(Hindi) Rating: No Show. This one crawled out of the wood work, has #NawazuddinSiddiqui (in his lean phase), in the lead and is pretty much fated to tank given the low-brow marketing campaign and unremarkable treatment

#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

#WhatWeDidOnOurHoliday(English) Rating: * * * Would have got an additional half-star if the censors had not mutilated the dialogues with incessant beeps. Nevertheless, this is a quirky British comedy set in beauteous Scotland, with  some really ingenious kid players powering it’s  amiability and far-out ideology.

#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.

 Synopsis: Adaline( Blake Lively) has been living a quite unassuming life because by some quirk of circumstance, she has remained 29 years for nearly a century.

Review
Adaline(Blake Lively) the title character, is a woman who meets and loses her husband during the construction of the Golden Gate bridge, then miraculously survives a car wreck and emerges as an ageless being whose looks are frozen at age 28. Explained as a quirk of fate conjoined with the effect of the stars on freak natural occurrences, the ageless wonder can be killed, but she will never die of natural causes or succumb to the usual ravages of time. She has a daughter who ages way beyond her own 29 years(played as an older woman by Ellen Burstyn)- so, for the public they effect a role reversal. It’s quite a weird scenario, better suited to a horror film or a vampire story, But it’s been pulled off quite convincingly by the carefully constructed, beautifully timed narrative by Lee Toland Krieger from a preposterously far-fetched scenario constructed by J. Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz.

 The twist in the romance comes when Adaline is invited to spend a weekend at Ellis’ family home. It’s an interesting turn that brings many complications with it but the manner in which it’s handled and the confidence with which it gets resolved, makes you look on in awe. Blake Lively, Ellen Burstyn, Harrison Ford, Michael Huisman, Kathy Baker- all turn in intelligent performances allowing for a strong sense of believability. The director and the writers do the rest.

There’s a chance of a May-September romance but the complications are too many and resolution that way may not have been plausible. The narrative becomes surer post that though. The four main characters in that complicated spiral are brought out sympathetically and quite intelligently. The character shadings show up definitively and Krieger displays stronger control over the subject matter with the choices he makes. The involvement increases as the emotions get stirred on screen. Close-ups and wide-shots add depth to the mystique within. It’s all so compellingly manifested that it has the power to take your breath away.

This is undoubtedly a romantic fantasy but framed in the best traditions of an immensely memorable charmer!
