#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 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. #TannishshthaChatterjee #RadhikaApte #SurveenChawla #AdilHussain #LeenaYadav #AjayDevgn #ParullGossainPR Runtime: 116 mins #TheMagnificentSeven(English) Rating: * * * #AntoineFuqua’s reimagined version of the cult legend western actioner that took inspiration from ‘#SevenSamurai’ and had many wannabes trying to ape it’s success from across the world, and in variety of languages, has it’s heart in the right place and is fuelled by furious and slick gun-slinging action set-pieces but there’s nothing new here to give this film an exclusive identity for itself. #AntoineFuqua #DenzelWashington #ChrisPratt #EthanHawk #MattBomer #SonyPictures #ThinkInkCommunications Runtime: 132 mins #BridgetJonesBaby(English) Rating: * * * This appears to be the final edition of the super successful franchise based on the personal memoirs of a 30 something English woman. Funnier than the previous edition, this one has a wilting Bridget(#ReneeZellweger after her alleged cosmetic face sculpting) laying an old love(#HughGrant) to rest while ‘fling’ing between old love Mark(#ColinFirth) and new love Jack(#PatrickDempsey) in an attempt to get to the truth about her soon-to-be-out baby’s real daddy.The writing is fluid and the run of play is quite unexpectedly entertaining. And #EmmaThompson as the gynaecologist handling Bridgets’s pregnancy is toungue-in-cheek howlarious. #EmmaThompson #MoesArt #IshaDoshi #UniversalPictures #JascintoFernandes Runtime: 123 mins
