#BestFilmReleasesThisWeek30thSept2016 #JohnsonThomas #MSDhoniTheUntoldStory(Hindi) Rating: * * ½ A passionate performance by Sushant Singh Rajput makes this M.S.Dhoni biopic just about watchable -that is if you can overcome the ennui caused by theoverly long runtime and tedious forages into his romantic escapades. #FoxStarStudios #ArunPandey #InspiredEntertainment #NeerajPandey #Mahi #MahendraSinghDhoni #SushantSinghRajput #DishaPatani #KiaraAdvani #AnupamKher #VijaySingh #SakshiDhoni #FawadKhan #BhoomikaChawla #HerryTangiri #RamCharan #RajeshSharma #ParineetiChopra Runtime: 190 mins

#BestFilmsReviewsThisWeek23rdSept2016 #JohnsonThomas #IndiaInADay(English) Rating: * * * A day in the life of a people from across a vast country, this crowd sourced footage documentary gives you an unstinting picture of the joys and sorrows of a people beleaguered by troubles yet finding joy in the simple mundane routines of daily life. Ordinary filming equipment,365 hrs of footage from all corners of the country shot on 10th Oct 2015, this realtime portrait is surely the true picture of an India churning through it’s myriad contradictions. #GoogleEarth #MAMI #RichieMehta #AnuragKashyap #MAMIFilmClub #AnupamaChopra #KiranRao #Star #Google #ScottFreeProductions #MandiraChauhan #NinadKulkarni #SatpalSharma #JackArbuthnott #DonnaChang #RidleyScott Runtime: 86 mins #Parched(Hindi) Rating: * * * A realistic take on the trials and tribulations that women have to encounter on a daily basis- in their efforts to find their true selves in a patriarchal society, this film set in Jaisalmer …

#PicksAndPiquesSnippetFilmReviews23rdSept2016 #JohnsonThomas #Banjo(Hindi) Rating: * * ½ Unbelievable FANTASY involving a Banjo Player from Mumbai slums and an international DJ from New York. The unlikely pairing of #ReiteshDeshmukh #NargisFakhri doesn’t quite work in the film’s favor and the music-which essentially should have been the soul of the film , falls flat. This one is gritty but not happening.#SheebaGeorge #RaviJadhav #ErosInternational #KrishikaLulla #RaindropAlterEgo Runtime: 137 mins #Parched(Hindi) Rating: * * * A realistic take on the trials and tribulations that women have to encounter on a daily basis- in their efforts to find their true selves in a patriarchal society, this film set in Jaisalmer has a well knit script, wondrous performances &stunning cinematography to complement the story but the instinctive empathy that should have been there is sorely missing. You can appreciate the artistry here but it’s quite unlikely that you will be affected by it. #…

#BestFilmsReleasesThisWeek9thSept2016 #JohnsonThomas #Sully(English/Imax) Rating: * * * ½ A potential airplane disaster is averted by a quick thinking Captain courageous. Captain Sullenberger’s quick thinking may have saved 155 lives in the airbus 370 he was piloting from La Guardia , forced to land in the middle of the Hudson river but the Investigators were not about to crown him hero all too easily. A docu-drama of sorts, this is director #ClintEastwood’s most dramatic, paciest and shortest film that is quite an intelligent and revealing entertainer. Can’t figure why #WarnerBrosIndia failed to have a critics preview before it’s release. #ClintEastwood #TomHanks #LauraLinney #AaronEckhart #ToddKomarnicki #ChesleySullenberger #WarnerBrosIndia #WarnerBros #HighestDuty #AnnaGunn #TomStern #ValerieMahaffey #DelphiHarrington #MikeOMalley #JamieSheridan Runtime: 96 mins #WrongSideRaju(Gujarati) Rating: * * * A rare gujrati film that plays out sensibly , this one is a thriller of sort…

#PicksAndPiquesSnippetFilmReviews9thSept2016 #JohnsonThomas #BaarBaarDekho(Hindi) Rating: * * A dismal ennervating love story, this one takes time travel to a gimmicky level to arrive at it’s happily ever after. It’s ‘#AboutTime’ our film makers stuck to desi stories for inspiration. The two heartthrobs at the centre of it look good but it’s pretty much facile and uninvigorating for the viewer. No wonder the producers preferred to keep the film away from critics till it’s release day. #NityaMehra #KaranJohar #SpicePR #ErosInternational #DharmaProductions #SriRao #SidharthMalhotra #KatrinaKaif #SayaniGupta #Sarika #TaahaShah #RamKapoor #RajitKapoor #HussinaRaja #FarhanAkhtar #ExcelEntertainment #ZackNizato #reiteshSidhwani #RaviKChandran #NightEdFilms #ZeeMusic Runtime: 141 mins #FreakyAli(Hindi) Rating: * * ‘#HappyGilmore’ and #TinCup’ may have been it’s indirect influencers but this film about a goon-turned-golfing match winner is just not convincing in it’s artifice laden spiel…

And throughout his illustrious career he won many big fights including the one in June 1980, when he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the WBC welterweight title.

Maverick Entrepreneur Shailendra Singh Dons a new hat, Directs his first feature film 'Sunshine Music Tours &Travels'
After burning his hands to the tune of Rs 100 crore (if not more), by producing niche, largely middle of the road cinema, Maverick Entrepreneur and film producer Shailendra Singh (Percept Picture Co) took a brief hiatus from the film world and went about setting a new idea on fire-'Sunburn Music festival' which has been growing in stature over the few years that it has become a go-to event for all the upwardly mobile young at heart set interested in music and dance. Success at 'Sunburn' has emboldened him, in fact, to re-enter the film making arena , this time, with an idea that appears to be a culmination of his own dreams and desires fronted on an adventurous road trip that culminates full blast in the Sunburn music festival( that's the little we could get from the promos).
And to take this journey forward, Shailendra Singh…

#ChauthiKoot(Punjabi/EnglishSubtitles) Rating: * * * ½ This is a sedately paced drama that highlights the lives of a Hindu and a Sikh family caught in the aftermath of the 1980’s Khalistan movement which peaked when the army stormed the Golden temple and as a consequence then #PM #IndiraGandhi was assassinated followed by the anti-Sikh riots . The performances and cinematography are above noard. The fear, the terror of being caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, the struggle to stay alive amidst fear and loathing comes to life in #GurvinderSingh’s achingly real telling. The plotting is designed to up the tension by several notches. There’s hardly any dialogue & it’s the background sounds that make the telling ominous. Cinematography is compelling too. A deserving watch this! #MauliSingh #LoudspeakerMedia #GurvinderSing…

#StarTrekBeyond(English/3D) Rating: * * * As a sequel meant to keep the flagging interest in this sci-fi adventure franchise going, it does just about enough. But as a standalone unusual experience it fails. In fact there’s hardly anything new here other than the spec less production design, imaginative scaling and computer animatronix. The human element even with the sexing up of previously remote and seeming sexless beings, and the action finale barely adds-up to a little more involvement and intrigue than before. That’s as far as this one goes. So if you are looking to go where no man has gone before –maybe you should look closer to home! #EverymediaPR #Vishaka #Viacom18 #ChrisPine #ZacharyQuinto #ZoeSaldana #SimonPegg #AntonYelchin #KarlUrban #JohnCho #IdrisElba #SofiaBoutella #LydiaWilson #ShohrehAghdashloo #ParamountPictures #SkydanceMedia #BadRobotProds. #Sneaky…

#Madaari sshhh Desh So Raha Hai(Hindi) Rating: * * ½ Nishikant Kamat uses the ‘A Wednesday’ device ( which now appears gimmicky)to turn the kidnapping of a Home Minister’s son into a fight for justice in which the common man pits himself against the system with an aim to winning hearts and proving his point in the bargain. The narrative has it’s interesting, pungent, pinchhitting, bitter, heartfelt moments but the choppy editing and the obviously contrived plotting leaves the viewer largely unaffected.
