Kaminey - Movie Review

Read more! Cast :: Amol Gupte, Priyanka Chopra, Shahid Kapoor, Vishal Bhardwaj.

The film does not take time out for introducing the characters one by one , they get introduced by themselves. By the time titles would begin you would get engaged in the film and the people who generally make noise during the beginning of the film in the cinema hall would get silent by the end of it.

Kaminey begins on a comic and exciting note . The comic side belonging to Guddu (Shahid) and the exciting side belonging to Charlie. Priyanka aka Sweety , the marathi mulgi , does her job well in the begining itself and director Vishal manages to give film an almost ideal start (have to say almost wonderful because there is no such thing as wonderful ) . The lisping and stuttering would make you laugh at the characters but still establish that connect with them . One by one all the characters come into play and start getting connected with one another through a Guitar and a Girl . The girl being Priyanka Chopra.

Making life what it is(Kamini) around Guddu , Sweety and Charlie are characters like Bhope Bhau , Tashi , Mikhail , Lobo and Lele. All of them unique and all knotted in a complex world of chrime, money and power. The cultural diversity in the film is one thing to watch where Mikhail and his brothers are Bengali , Tashi and Lobo are Christians , Guddu who is actually Sanjay Sharma is a Hindu and Bhope Bhau and Sweety being Marathi.There are also some foreigners in the film .Bhope Bhau who is a true Marathi Manus and against all north indians has been briliantly played by Amol Gupte . He has done full justice to the character and has played the part of an aspiring politician who uses this “Marathi Manus Ideology” for getting a ticket to contest in the elections. Character of Anmol Gupte has maximum weightage than other characters in movie. The film is made up of these so many different Characters and it completely belongs to them. All characters have same importance and everyone of them has a mean(kamini) side. The director has even gone ahead and shown the mean side of a small Kid who also plays a very small and comic part in the film. Every character has been perfectly presented and it is these characters that make the film so strong.

Kaminey for its maximum length belongs to Shahid and it won’t be wrong to say that it is completely his film. It is his best and most mature performance till date and his hard work comes across on the screen. He has worked really hard for both of the characters and has put up a magnificent performance. The two characters being completely different , Shahid has got a rare opportunity to express all different shades of a personality on-screen. His is the toughest part and to act that well shows his progress as an actor. He has already become the new superstar and now his acting skills would also get appreciated which would further increase his stardom for sure. Pankaj sir will be so proud of him after watching the film. Vishal has given him sufficient space to perform and he has delivered according to his expectations. Though Priyanka’s part in the film was small but surely a very important one and one that required great efforts from her too. She also has worked hard and given her best. She is just fabulous in the film and her chemistry with Shahid is something to watch out for. She plays this part of a crazy marathi girl naturally and would certainly make you smile. She is lovable and for that matter both Shahid-Priyanka as a couple are also lovable and look cute. They both are stars and of the type who can also act. Chandan Roy is also good as Mikhail.

The comic caper variety that Vishal has attempted in the film has worked like wonders. It is officially now first of its kind. The story is different to an extent but what is best is the handling that Vishal has given to the story. The screenplay is great and there are several memorable sequences in the film. The climax of the film is what you call ‘climax’ exactly and it is this part which decides the fate of the film. It is this part that will please the bulk of the spectators and would make it a sure shot hit.

The cinematography by Tassaduq Hussain is top notch . Several locations of mumbai have been shown in a never before manner and the sequences with Rains have also been shot perfectly. The steady-cam shots which are on the move have also been done in a beautiful manner and are technically sound . The music of the film is no doubt great and it also adds a lot to the film. The dialogues of the film are just great and have been written very well. The actors have very well delivered them too in the way they should have been.

Vishal Bhardwaj has done absolutely fabulous job. This one is a completely different film from Omkara and he has again done a great job.

Love Aaj Kal

Read more! Cast :: Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Neetu Sing, Rishi Kapoor, Rahul Khanna, Vir das, Giselle Monteiro.

The mighty mysterious love, which has remained unexplained even after tomes of literature has been written about it and tones of celluloid consumed, finds a delicate, touching expression in director Imtiaz Ali’s film Love Aaj Kal. Through two parallel love stories, both equally moving and both relatable, the movie tells its audience that Love Aaj is no different from Love Kal (yesterday) even though the way of expressing it for today’s i-pod generation may be different from that of the lovers of yore when just the meeting of eyes or passing of a smile could throb a heart more than a rocking bed on a one-night stand.

London 2009. Jai (Saif Ali Khan) and Meera (Deepika Padukone) click on their very first meeting in a pub and end up sharing their first kiss the same night. They don’t realize they are a couple until their friends point it out to them. And just when it seems they would walk hand-in-hand into the sunset, rears its head the modern-day monster that has doomed many love stories - Career! He has an American dream of clinching a job in Golden Gate, San Francisco, while she wants to make a career out of restoring the old monuments of Delhi. Clearly, their ways are separate, and, like any ‘practical’ couple, they mutually decide to split and even throw a break-up party.

But, can the matters of heart be resolved so easily? Is it so easy to snap the heart strings and move on?

Delhi 1965. Veer Singh (Saif, again) is left thunderstruck when he first sees Harleen (Giselle Monteiro - a beautiful newcomer whose name was strangely withheld). It’s a love mostly expressed in stares and suppressed smiles. But then, she goes away to Calcutta, leaving Veer lifeless, until he listens to his heart, and, driven by his love, overcomes the many odds piled up against him, to make Harleen his.

But will Jai go the Veer way?

Imtiaz Ali has crafted the film superbly by not just juxtapositioning the love stories of Jai and Veer but also following a non-linear route to tell each story. The dots are connected in an aesthetically beautiful way to give ‘Love Aaj Kal’ the structure of a complex origami that makes complete sense when all its segments come together to unravel a pretty design. And a fat share of credit for this should go to the editor, Aarti Bajaj, who does an incredibly good job.

To top it, Saif Ali Khan gives the best performance of his career. Unlike the painful performances we saw in Tashan and Race, here’s a Saif who is subtle, polished and spot on in his dual portrayal of Jai and Veer. There’s a scene where Saif is nonchalantly telling Rishi Kapoor that Deepika, from whom he has split, will move on in life, have new friends and new relationships. It’s quite a sight to see how his expression and tone changes from being dismissive to painfully sad by the end of the same long dialogue. It’s the stuff only seasoned actors can pull off.

Deepika Padukone is an image of grace in a role that requires her to talk more through the eyes than words. She doesn’t ham, nor is there any apparent effort on her part to underplay her character. Rishi Kapoor is good, but a special mention ought to be made of the girl who plays Harleen. She’s a pretty, delicate damsel who gets just two-three dialogues in the film but still leaves her image in your mind. Rahul Khanna, playing the new man in Deepika’s life, has a very small part which he plays convincingly

LUCK - Movie Review

Read more! Cast :: Sanjay Dutt, Imran Khan, Shruti Haasan, Mithun Chakraborty, Danny, Ravi Kissen and Chitrashi Rawat.

Mafia king pin Kareem Musa (Sanjay Dutt) takes the game of betting to an altogether different level by involving humans as betting objects who are made tofight their own luck to survive. Every year his trusted aide Tamang (Danny) assembles for him in South Africa, 20 participants handpicked from across the globe who have a proven record of extreme luck. Betters across the globe put their money on them through Musa’s syndicate. During the new season, amongst the participants are Ram (Imran) a white collar job youth who is hell bent on earning big money to compensate the huge fraud his scamster father was reason for, Ayesha (Shruti) who has her own personal agenda, Retd. Col Singh (Mithun) who desperately needs money for his wife’s operation, Shortcut (Chitrashi) a Pakistani camel racer girl who dreams of buying a Lexus with the prize money and Raghav (Ravi Kissen) a serial murderer. What happens after these participants are put into extremely dangerous life taking games of luck and who manages to win the big jackpot amongst them forms the rest of the film.

Luck begins with an exciting opening sequence that gets your heart in your mouth watching a blindfolded Dutt cross the multiple railway lines with trains running around in fast speed. Soham Shah shows tremendous progress as a technician with Luck. He succeeds in getting you all hooked throughout the first half. However, in the second half the pacing drops in between but then picks up yet again towards the pre-climax. Soham and Rensil D’Silva’s screenplay strikes the perfect balance between a slick action thriller and a mass entertainer. Dialogues are citeee worthy at places. Soham also gets big points in his casting of the veterans. It is almost after 20 years that the trio of Dutt-Mithun and Danny has come together for any film. They were last cast together in Jeete Hain Shaan Se (1988). However, the climax could have been more effectively shot and culmination slightly less over the top.

Amongst the actors, sadly the young brigade disappoints whereas the veterans shine big time. Imran Khan though earnest, is most of the times expressionless. Kamal Haasan’s daughter Shruti Haasan has a striking screen presence but needs a crash course in dialogue delivery. Sanjay Dutt has achieved a mastery of sorts of playing the big hearted ‘bhai’ and here too he is in his safe zone. Dutt appears super chilled out and enjoying himself. Mithun Chakraborty is extremely impressive. Danny is a scene stealer in many sequences. It is great to see the veteran actor back in top form in a very meaty role. Ravi Kissen is terrific. Chitrashi Rawat is good. Snita Mahey playing Dutt’s team member is super hot.
