Well, this was an interesting movie! Really did not go in the direction I thought it would. More time spent on stories I thought would be quick, and less time spent on stories I thought would be long. If you want to be as surprised as I was you can read the “no spoilers” review. If you want to know what to expect in advance, for real, not just what the trailer says, you can read this. And of course if you’ve already seen the movie and want to join the conversation, you can read this.Continue reading
Luv Ranjan is such a FASCINATING artist!!!! I can’t think of anyone else who brings together such different sensibilities within one artist. And, in this case, within one movie! He didn’t direct, but he produced and wrote the script, and it is pretty clearly more of a Luv Ranjan movie than anything else. Really interesting, a film that is both a fun light sexy situational comedy, and also a drama about being a woman and being a man and being a family.Continue reading
Well, this was a pointless movie! As in, the whole plot happens, and then you realize at the end “wait, that had no effect on anything”. Not in a clever ironic way, but like the scriptwriter didn’t think it through. And that’s on top of the themes and characters just not being what they promised to be. (no spoilers review here)
Well, this was a bad movie. Not a “I want to die” bad movie, more like a “maybe I will just take a little nap until it is over” bad movie. Great actors, wasn’t their fault, but terrible script and terrible direction, just boring and unengaging.
More news!!!! Yaaaaaay! Lots of little things that are interesting to keep an eye on and see how they pan out. And of course Padmavat, the story that will never die.
This was fascinating! Started out a typical police film, and then somewhere it turned into an interesting discussion of crime, regionalism, caste, and all kinds of neat things like that. A lot of it being the same things that Aamir’s big ridiculous Thugs of Hindostan is about to cover, but in modern day instead of colonial times.
