#Jazbaa(Hindi) Rating:* * ½ From gaping giant sized craters, he’s whittled down his narrative gaps to mere Mumbai sized potholes. And that’s a progressive step no doubt..at least for Sanjay Gupta. Unfortunately this ‘Kaante’ nahin Katthe. Wobbly histrionics, skewed dynamics, knee-jerk story-telling and pyrrhic , jaded, verbal jousts punctuating the uncoordinated dramatics make for an exhausting experience. And Mumbai frequently juxtaposed in between makes it all seem so alien- not least because the greenish-gray tinged aerial (most of it)cinematography makes the city look derelict and eerily post apocalyptic( that probably was not the intention here). Aishwarya tries a little too hard to regain lost glory..but that’s a long and arduous task ahead for that. Shabana Is distinctively weighty but ungainly & Irfan plays to the gallery. Frankly this one is ‘Seven Days(plagiarized from the Korean flick)’ too many! #SanjayGupta #AishwaryaRaiBachchan #ShabanaAzmi #IrrfanKhan #Ibrahim #Pearlmedia #ZeeStudios #WhiteFeatherFilms #SachinJoshi #ChandanRoySanyal #JackieShroff #SiddhantKapoor #EsselVisionProductions #ViikingMediaAndEntertainment Runtime: 122 mins
#HumSabUlluHain(Hindi) Rating: * Laugh? you will not…And there’s no doubt about that. If you watch this you’re more than likely to become an ‘Ullu’ like the title claims. A mixed bag of comediennes fail to make a comedy circus out of this agonizingly witless tale where passing the parcel(suitcase full of cash) is the main game. Ullu done it! #VedantPR #ShamrockPR #VandanaLalwani #AmritaChabbria #GavieChahal #SunilPal #SanjeevNigham #VIP #UpasanaSingh #GuddiMaruti Runtime: 123 mins
#RudhramadeviTheWarriorQueen(Hindi/Telugu) Rating: * * Another #Bahubali wannabe from the Telugu film industry, this shoddily orchestrated historical set in the ancient Kakatiya dynasty of Orugallu is strong on lineage and story but fails to consolidate with craft. Showy histrionics, flaky unpalatable heroism, patchy VFX/graphics and ungainly narration add to it’s woes. Production values are spiffy but money is not well-spent. Gunasekhar needs to take an ‘Epic’ reality check! #AbhishekNama #RelianceEntertainmnet #RanaDaggubati #AnushkaShetty #AlluArjun #KaaliSughir #Illayaraja #ThottaTharani #AjayVincent #ASreekarPrasad #PeterHun #Gunasekhar #NeetaLulla #EpicDrama #AbhishekPictures #Termworks #NithyaMenen #Catherine Tresa #Baba Sehgal Runtime: 145mins
#Best #Sicario(English) Rating: * * * ½ A nail-biting thriller , hitting the right kind of tension and thrills without resorting to unnecessary gimmicks. The drama with it’s strong overtones of moral and ethical ambiguity will keep you in it’s grips throughout. #PVRPictures #HardlyAnonymousPR #EmilyBlunt #BenicioDelToro #JoshBrolin #DenisVilleneuve Runtime: 121 mins
#Pan(English) Rating: * * ½ Showy production but heartless entertainment. Visually exciting CGI, and near homogenous mix of VFX and graphics lend credence to this origin story prequel. Over-the-top performances, pop-references and semi-serious intent keep it all light-weight. Enjoyable but not exciting. #HughJackman #WarnerBros #AnkitAgarwal #RatPacDuneEntertainment #BerlantiProduction #LeviMiller #GarretHedlund #RooneyMara

#Best #TheWalk(English) Rating:* * * ½ Monumental #HighWire act. Scaling unparalleled heights with it’s dizzying sky-high adrenaline rush, this Vertiginous adventure(narrated in first person) magnifies the scary escalations it’s protagonist is willing to make for glory’s sake. But the narrative device doesn’t allow for. # complete immersion SonyPictures #HardlyAnonymousPR #ShilpaParida #NiveditaHiggins #AnjaliMalhotra #JosephGordonLevitt #BenKingsley #JamesBadgeDale #BenSchwartz #CharlotteLeBon #ClémentSibony #Cés#arDomboy #RobertZemeckis

Hindi/Telugu/Tamil Film Review

Rating: * *
Runtime: 145 mins
Another CGI powered epic fantasy, this one a quasi historical, originating from the southern film Industry( in the wake of Bahubali and Puli), Rudhramadevi, being released in Telugu and Hindi, attempts to paint a glorious picture of an ancient past.
She was one of the most prominent rulers of the Kakatiya dynasty in the Deccan Plateau-that too at a time when female heir apparents were frowned upon. The script and film, written and conceptualized by Gunasekhar over a period of 7 years, basically traverses the routine path- from disappointing girl child to eventual ruler who gives it her all in her efforts to save her people and their culture. The story has it’s standard engrossing moments divined in volatility and war burn. The action scenes have epic flair and the CGI though patchy and unseemly at times makes the armed fight for ascendancy look distinctive enough. Though the individual scene-by-scene technique may not be as high-end as ‘Puli’ there’s a far more cohesive approach at play here making the ensuing experience a little bit more bearable than the former.
Ajayan Vincent’s cinematography allows for stronger depth and the 3D enhances that aspect beautifully. Allu Arjun as Gona Gana Reddy, also the narrator, does a crowd pleasing job, inserting comedic elements along the way. Rana Daggubati has way too little screen time to make his presence count. It’s mostly Anushka’s show and she rises to the occasion as the fearsome and just queen. Even so, the characters are at best brawny cut-outs and there are far too many of them to keep track of. The songs and dances drag the narrative down and the overall slow tempo employed also adds to the fast dwindling interest. This is merely passable fare. It’s neither the best there is nor the worst!
