Gully Boy Review And First Day Box Office Collections
Cast: Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Raaz, Vijay Varma, Kalki Koechlin, Amruta Subhash and Sheeba Chaddha
Director: Zoya Akhtar
The film starts off with a depiction of how Murad (Ranveer Singh) lives. A house the size of a matchbox in a Mumbai chawl is his home. Accommodating a cast aside mother (played by Amruta Subhash,) a grandmother, an abusive father and a new stepmother not older than him, Murad dreams of rapping his way out of the drudgery. The only ray of hope in his life is Safeena (Alia Bhatt,) a live wire and quirky character who pushes Murad to achieve his dreams, no matter what. Kalki plays the role of a music scholar who has just returned from the United States. MC Sher (played by Siddhant Chaturvedi) takes Murad under his wing and shows him the tricks of the trade. As a specialist in music, Kalki’s character is instantly drawn to the oozing talents displayed by Murad.
Centering around Murad, Gully Boy tells the story of how a rapper tries to break free of the drudgery and poverty in which he grew up, through rap. While he struggles to make it to the coveted list of the top ten rappers, Murad’s family and friends help in making his dreams come true. Gully Boy tells the story of how an ordinary man becomes the extraordinary Murad through sheer determination and hard work. While rap is still considered extremely unconventional and is not an appreciated music form in India even now, this Zoya Akhtar directorial quite literally tells the story of a man’s journey from rags to riches. Siddhant Chaturvedi’s amazing acting skills as MC Sher have definitely put him on the map of actors for whom to look out .
While parts of Gully Boy may seem slightly familiar (Eminem’s 8 Miles comes to mind,) the overall directorial is nearly flawless. Zoya Akhtar has understood the strengths of all the leads perfectly and used them to her advantage. The dark side of Mumbai is not a side most people are comfortable accepting. However, with finesse and attention to detail, Akhtar manages to capture every alley and every nook without making it seem over the top and unreal.
The power packed performances by Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt are what make this movie so amazing. Based on the story of Mumbai rappers Divine and Naezy, Gully Boy tells an extremely real and hard hitting story. The presence of the original rappers in various scenes of the movie, along with lyrics written by them, adds a sense of gravitas and authenticity to the film. The rap battles are riveting and the script is written so well, there are almost no loopholes through the movie.
With no major drawbacks to this film, Gully Boy is an all out entertainer. One of the only things which doesn’t work for this is that there isn’t enough of Kalki’s character on screen. If there was, the fight for the different sides would have been a little more interesting. All in all, with Zoya Akhtar’s brilliant directorial skills and amazing performances by all the actors, Gully Boy is worth more than just a one time watch!

The Fakir Of Venice Review And First Day Box Office Collections
Cast: Farhan Akhtar, Annu Kapoor, Kamal Sidhu and Valentina Carnelutti
Director: Anand Surapur
Adi Merchant (Farhan Akhtar,) with his expertise and scouting talent, has all the trappings of a true con artist. A production hand on film sets and known for never refusing any assignments, Adi finds himself in a particularly sticky situation. His bosses task him with the arduous job of finding a fakir! However, as luck would have it, this happens to be one of the many tasks at which Adi could not succeed without putting in a bit more effort. Travelling all the way to the hallowed streets of India, Adi stumbles upon Sattur (Annu Kapoor,) a daily wage worker. Perfect to play the role of the fakir so sought after by the Venetians, Sattur and Adi return to the cobbled streets of Venice to pull off the biggest con of their lives. While this is the crux of the movie, the overall plot tells quite a different tale.
Featuring a mixture of urban characters and street dwellers, this Anand Surapur directorial seems to have aged quite well. Scheduled to release approximately 14 years ago and initially slated to be Farhan Akhtar’s Bollywood directorial, The Fakir Of Venice tells an intriguing tale. A mixture of dialects (Hindi and English,) the different shots follow the journey of the two leads from the hallowed streets of India to the cobbled streets of Venice.
While the film has a lot of good things going for it, The Fakir Of Venice delivers only the bare minimum of what was promised from this movie. Although the opening scenes of this movie promise a dark comedy with a subtle message, the end result is far from what was promised. Despite the fact that the scenes set in India were shot aesthetically and were to the point in their depictions, the scenes in Venice were tacky and lacked luster.
Considering the fact that this was Farhan Akhtar’s first stint at acting, the work he produced was quite brilliant. Coupled with the scintillating chemistry he shared with Annu Kapoor, the movie was made all the more entertaining. With an impressive story line and some beautifully shot scenes, this Anand Surapur directorial leaves quite a good impression. All in all, The Fakir Of Venice is worth a watch, especially for all the time it took for the film to hit the screens!
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga Review
Cast: Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Rajkummar Rao, Akshay Oberoi and Regina Cassandra
Director: Shelly Chopra Dhar
The first ever mainstream movie about same sex love, Sonam Kapoor’s and Anil Kapoor’s Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga tells a heart warming story. A directorial debut by Shelly Dhar Chopra, the plot for this particular movie revolves around how Sweety (Sonam Kapoor) and her family deal with the idea and concept of same sex love. With more than a solid dose of words like “honor” and “societal pressures” being thrown around, this movie also talks about a woman’s struggles to maintain the right to live her life on her terms.
The movie opens to playwriter Saahil Mirza (Rajkummar Rao) following his muse Sweety, to her village (Moga, Punjab) where through an intense play, he discovers this small village has more secrets than he could have thought possible. Running into Sweety’s orthodox father (played by Anil Kapoor,) Mirza immediately realises he has walked into a web of denials and lies. The journey to the village makes Mirza realise that Sweety is not the only one who has to deal with her family’s issues. He also has his fair share of unresolved drama and conflicts he has to resolve on his own.
As a film, this particular story is heartwarming, to the point and tells a riveting tale of love and compromises. Like always, Anil Kapoor displays his fine skills and makes the film a worthy watch with the way he delivers his dialogues. Sonam Kapoor, as Sweety, is to the point and quite perfect for the role she plays. With a combination of subtlety and vulnerability to her character, the younger Kapoor brings to the fore an assertion to the character in a way that no one else can. Rajkummar Rao as Mirza also delivers a character which is nothing short of perfection and with Juhi Chawla playing the role of a mother, one is left without the shadow of a doubt about her talents as a great actress.
For perhaps the first time in Bollywood, Shelly Chopra Dhar has broken new ground with a story that hasn’t been told in the industry yet. A breath of fresh air, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is a film that tells the story it promises and doesn’t deviate from the core message too strongly. All in all, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is a movie that needs to be watched, understood and appreciated for all that it says and more!
Why Cheat India Review And First Day Box Office Expectations
Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Shreya Dhanwanthary
Director: Soumik Sen
Why Cheat India tells the story of Rakesh Sharma (Emraan Hashmi,) who runs a business wherein he uses loopholes in the Indian education system and scams people. How? By hiring bright boys from an underprivileged background and getting them to write exams for the rich and privileged. Sharma has a simple goal: to help improve the lives of those who don’t have enough to make ends meet by making money from those who can afford to pay for proxy writers. Based on the life of Sattu, a boy who falls prey to Sharma’s plans, Why Cheat India takes one on a gripping journey of how people without privilege lived their lives.
Innocence and desperation are perhaps two of the most vulnerable traits people have and when exploited, there is a lot to be gained by the person exploiting the others. Emraan Hashmi’s Why Cheat India, draws parallels for this story from these situations, where opportunists like Rakesh know from where they can make the most money. A slimy businessman with his own set of morals, Rakesh plays both sides of the law in a way which ensures he is safe and protected, no matter what.
A daunting and gripping tale, Why Cheat India is the story not of a hero, but an anti hero who brings to life the various levels of corruption and crime which exist in our education system. A movie about the ultimate mafia (who quite literally controls the future of people’s life) of education, this particular Soumik Sen directorial is a story which needed to be told. Based in the slightly more backward areas of India (Janpur, Kota and Jhansi, for example,) Rakesh’s scams are in use the most here because of the sheer amount of pressure there is on the students to become engineers, doctors or MBA graduates.
However, while the plot is unique and storytelling is to the point, there are a few things which don’t make sense. A glaring hole with regard to Sharma’s past life makes one question his intentions of setting up this business and Sattu’s blind adoration for Rakesh seems a bit far fetched. All in all, with some brilliant performances by all the leads, Sen’s Why Cheat India tells the story of a flawed system and makes one question the integrity of the education system in India.
