Movie Review: Fast Five

1

One word is enough to comment on this movie: Entertainer!! Full paisa vasool!!
If you love Fast and Furious franchise, then you must watch this one….

Addition of The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) gives this series of movies a new turn. Fast five is not the best of all films in this series(as many people seem to claim, IMO, best one so far is 4 th movie), but it is better than most of them. It has usual comic touch, excellent locations (Rio de Janeiro, my new favorite), fast cars, a little drama and hell lot of action.

Director Justin Lin and Screen-Writer Chris Morgan has done good job this time. I am not going to give summary of movie as there not much to tell about this action flick. But it would be a Paisa Vasool deal if you decide to watch it.

P.S. Are you one of the people who run away from theater as soon as it starts showing credits at end? Well, for this movie, I suggest you wait for a while… there is a surprise at the end of movie… it comes after a few names on credits list…. so don’t miss it…

Movie Review: Hancock

27

Just watched hancock at a theater near my home 😀 And let me start review with rating. My rating is **. Yes, its two star!!

Hancock Movie Still

Hancock Movie Still

There is nothng special about this movie and its just Will Smith all over. Its not a boring movie but its not must watch type. So if you have no time to spare then don’t worry and watch this later on DvD.
There is no scope for acting as this is an action film. There are few drawbacks and mistakes.

Story: (No Spoilers):
Hancock, a superhero, always drunk, everyone calls him drunkard and he keeps getting angry on them. He catches criminals but this costs his city crores. He keeps destroying everything around him wherever he goes. He saves life of a man who tries to make him a good man. And then many things happen and the “only” twist in whole story comes after interval. Finish. This is max I can write about story.

If you want my opinion, don’t waste more than 40-50 bucks on movie.

Cheers

P.S> Thanks to all who replied on my previous post. I will reply comments as soon as possible. Using net-cafe restricts many things actually. Have a nice day. 🙂

Sarkar Raj : Movie Review

20

I watched Sarkar Raj at Gold Adlabs Pune. And please notice that we had our tickets booked last Monday to catch the show. Well Gold Adlabs is worth the trouble because of its quality.

Now, the Movie. First thing, if you haven’t seen the Sarkar (first movie) then go watch it now. As a sequel, Sarkar Raj is no match to its prequel. As a standalone film, its good!! Second thing is I can’t help but compare the two movies. So bear it!! 😛
Few lines for people who have no idea about what Sarkar is about:
“Sarkar is a person who is not a mafia(but has many qualities of him), not a politician (but much politics is under his control) and not a social worker(but all people love him coz he helps people in his own style.. mostly killing).” As the famous dialog of film say, ” Sarkar is not a man, he a concept” (Sorry I am bad at translation of strong Hindi to English). Important thing is that “Sarkar” do only good things for Maharashtra. He want to see his state to take leaps of progress.
A foreign company approaches Maharashtra with a Electricity Company Project which needs much space(land). The movie starts with this and goes on, but remains focused on Sarkar and his life.

Now I should tell you if I liked film or not! Actually I am not sure about it. I liked the film because it has good actors and good dialogs. And I disliked film for its repeated and degraded soundtrack and Aishwarya. There was no need for Aishwarya. What an useless character who does nothing but listen to other men. Differences between Sarkar and Sarkar Raj are:

  • Background Music: In Sarkar first movie, music is helps greatly to the subject of movie where in Sarkar Raj it awfully irritates sometimes.
  • Camera and Cinematography: I don’t know whats RGV’s problem with simple frame. At the second half, sometimes all I was able to see was character’s face at corner of screen. Provided Adlabs big screen, it wasn’t much fun to find the face. (Thank god I was not in Imax)
  • Storyline:In Sarkar first movie , lot of things happen, slowly, but they do happen. And in Sarkar Raj, some stuff happens but its not enough for a movie. Story is more stretched than it was originally. Especially at end, I would have loved to watch Amitabh actually finding out the politics behind events happened rather than hearing it from him. He just tells things to Aishwarya who sits and cries. It would have been much better end if we had seen it in process of happenings.
  • Dialogs: Now, here I am not going to say a word against Sarkar Raj. Both movies have great dialogs and some deserve applause.

Overall, after pointing out bad things, I have some good points for film too. Even I can’t say I liked the film much, I suggest people to watch it if you can. Its a good piece of Ram Gopal Verma’s direction. Abhishek Bachchan (my favorite) has performed his best in this movie. He completely fits in the Sarkar’s personality and looks like perfect successor to his father(in movie) i.e. previous Sarkar. I liked the way he spoke about Maharashtra( I know its just a movie but I love when people say inspiring things about my country, my land).

Ohh and a marked-to-write-thing: Why the hell Aishwarya has to put too much of Lip-gloss? (word theft from Ruhi’s blog 😀 ) It distracted me twice from Abhishek’s dialogs. I got bored of it in instant as I hate fake beauty(not Aishwarya, in general. Well ok, I don’t like her too) and cosmetics.

I rate this movie 6/10.

Or say *** out of *****.
