Cast & Crew
Director: Mohit Suri
Cast: Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Rhea Chakraborty
Duration: 2h 15m
Story: This story is about Madhav Jha (Arjun Kapoor) from a small village in Bihar, who joins the Delhi University in Sports Quote. Here he meets Riya Somani (Shraddha Kapoor). Both of them got a good contact by Basketball as both are Basketball players. Madhav’s heart comes on Riya, who lives in Delhi, but Riya does not love her. However, she becomes half-girlfriend of Madhav. There are differences between the two for some reasons. After this, the story goes to Bihar and London. In Madhav’s love story, Shailesh (Vikrant Massi), his friend is also an important contributor. Now, will Madhava and Riya’s love story be fulfilled? For this, you have to watch the film.
Arjun Kapoor’s work is comfortable and he is fit to play Madhava. Their point of talking is also good. Looking at the work of actor Vikrant Mussi, who was touted as Arjun’s friend, it can be said that he will get more projects in the future. Shraddha Kapoor’s work is also good and the rest of the cast also done their full contribution to the movie.
The film’s direction is good. Locations are also amazing. Cinematography, camera work is also great. The story of the film is quite predictable and weak, which progresses in such a way that it starts boredom. Earlier, Chetan Bhagat’s novels have been transformed into films, but this film has not been able to make that level. The kind of cinema that was waiting was not found. As an audience, Jai has been asking the same question about what is the purpose behind creating such a film, in which the purpose of the activities of the actress is not understood. Someone is moving away from the family so nobody loves it Nobody is ready to tell the reason. The music is not that excellent.
- Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor chemistry is the heart and soul of this film
- First half was good
- Music is the best thing and added advantage for the film
- Second half lack of pace
- Poor screenplay
- Fast story narration
- Arjun and Shraddha failed to lift the speed of this slow story
- Arjun’s Bihari accent

Final Verdict: If you ar a big fan of Arjun and Shraddha, you can try once.
Sacred Games Ft. Bollywood Actors Is Bravo!
When is the second season of Sacred Games airing? Is Gaitonde alive? Will there be a nuclear war?
These kind of questions are pouring in on all the social media platforms. If you have not watched Sacred Games yet then you belong to the clan of boring people, now! Well, certainly, this is what the fandom on social media platforms say! Ever since the series Sacred Games launched, it has been making headlines after it started streaming on the famous OTT platform, Netflix. This series is everything you did not expect it to be, from heart gripping scenes to happening dialogues and oh! The acting of our Bollywood fam is tremendously superb! After ruling worldwide success with its original US shows such as House of Cards, Narcos and Stranger Things, Netflix shifted to India with its latest Bollywood flavoured series Sacred Games and its bravo! Anurag Kashyap, one of the finest directors of Bollywood is the mastermind behind this incredible series. From a gang based epic movie Gangs of Wasseypur to the modern adaption of an Indian classic Devdas in Dev.D, Kashyap produces films that are unique in their own way. With his latest direction in Sacred Games which is an adaption of a book of the same name written by Vikram Chandra, this series is a game changer.
Sacred Games features the Bollywood actors Saif Ali Khan (Sartaj,) Nawazuddin Siddiqui (Gaitonde) and Radhika Apte (Anjari) in the lead roles. It released worldwide on 6 July 2018 and ever since its debut on Netflix, people are going gaga over its thrilling and splendid plot.
Sacred Games is the first of the seven originals created by Netflix to up its game in the Indian market.
The story revolves around Sartaj Singh, a low level cop in Mumbai. Sartaj struggles with his desire to be an honest cop among a corrupt police force. As he gets pressured to lie and cheat by the officers superior to him, one fine day he receives a phone call from a mysterious stranger. The stranger threatens him that Mumbai will be destroyed in 25 days and Sartaj must save it before then. Moving ahead, Sartaj is struggling to find answers. The show introduces a wide cast of characters including Anjari, the RAW agent who wants to prove she is more than just a desk analyst and Katekar, Sartaj’s partner who struggles with balancing family life and work. Revolving around the lives of various characters, Sacred Games is a story of the main antagonist’s origin, delivered in periodic flashbacks with Gaitonde, a young saint boy turned Don of those times, being the highlight of the series.
To spice up the series, we have a transgender bar dancer and a couple of other females who set the screens ablaze with their acting skills! Sacred Games is perhaps India’s finest TV series till date and a gripping watch for all the binge watchers across the globe.
From the background score to the cast to the theme, everything about Sacred Games is beaming with Bollywood vibe. The first season consists of a total number of 8 episodes.
Not so long ago, Indian audience was hooked to the saas bahu dramas and household based stoylines but with this remarkable series marking its debut, Netflix breaks new grounds for the Indian Television!

Dhadak Review: This Love Saga Will Tug At Your Heart Strings!
Cast: Ishaan Khatter, Janhvi Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Shridhar Watsar, Ankit Bisht.
Director: Shashank Khaitan.
mangoBollywood Rating: 3.5/5.
This is not your regular Romeo and Juliet saga. Dhadak is a bold and beautiful love story which will make you stay glued to your seats with its striking cast and their incredible performances.
Directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar, Dhadak is a remake of the super hit Marathi film Sairat. The most anticipated love saga of 2018 Dhadak, celebrates young love and the obstacles it brings along with the many shades of romance. Set in Udaipur, the story begins with young love blossoming in the midst of politics and a dominant class system. Two young lovers Madhukar (Ishaan) and Parthavi (Janhvi) are blooming in love! They fall head over heels for each other. However, the fact that they belong to different castes of society, becomes an obstacle in their epic love saga.
The lovers dare to go against societal norms and battle all odds for the sake of their love.
Dhadak tries to replicate Sairat’s essence however, it lacks in some aspects. The strength of the film lies in its blooming freshness and essence of first love with our newbies Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter nailing it with their charm. Ishaan Khatter’s energetic performance grabs your attention, while Janhvi Kapoor and her gorgeous personality will melt your heart. The roller coaster ride the love story portrays is what makes Dhadak a worthwhile watch.
The mesmerizing music of the film brings the story to life. Ajay Atul pulls the right strings and touches tugs at your emotions, every single time!
Dhadak makes you laugh, smile, cry and tugs at your heartstrings with its breezy love story!

Soorma Review : A Brave And Inspiring Story Of A Hockey Player!
Cast: Diljit Dosanjh, Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi
Director: Shaad Ali
mango Bollywood Rating: 3.5/5
Bollywood is embracing the talent of our sportsmen and curating them via producing inspiring films. Previously, Bollywood depicted a hockey game with Chak De India, the famous 2007 film. Now, the latest film Soorma happens to be second film about the portrayal of a hockey player. The much anticipated Soorma is based on the biopic of the former captain of the Indian National Hockey Team, Sandeep Singh. Under his captaincy India went on to win the 2009 Sultan Azlan Shah Cup ,qualified for the 2012 Olympics and the rest we know is history!
Punjabi Singer turned Actor Diljit Dosanjh is from a non sports background, yet the actor has brought to life an ace hockey player’s character on screen! The film features Diljit Dosanjh, Angad Bedi and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles. Soorma starts with Diljit Dosanjh’s impressive portrayal as Sandeep Singh and his journey from a carefree boy who picks up the hockey stick to prove his love to Harpreet (Taapsee Pannu.) Eventually, life takes a turbulent turn for him when an accident leaves his lower body paralyzed. Angad Bedi portrays the role of Diljit’s brother Bikramjeet Singh, who helps and inspires Diljit to transform from an amateur to a national level champion. Angad stands like a rock as Diljit’s life gets tougher. From a heartbroken boy to the national level champ, Diljit Dosanjh excels as a hockey player In Soorma! Other roles include Satish Kaushik as the helpless but proud father who sees his son fall to the lowest point and then shine as a hero, Kulbhushan Kharbanda is the supportive federation chairman among others.
The entire cast of the film pulls the strings the moment Soorma starts looking like a sports film. From full fledged Punjabi songs and locations to awe inspiring performances of the actors, with 131 minute duration, Soorma does complete justice to the biopic of Sandeep Singh.
Race 3 Review And First Day Box Office Predictions
Director: Remo D’Souza
Cast: Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Saquib Saleem, Jacqueline Fernandez and Daisy Shah
Stars: 3 out of 5
Race 3, the highly anticipated Salman Khan Eid release, finally hit the screens today and by the looks of things, there are a lot of mixed reactions to the film. The film begins with a build up of sorts to Salman Khan’s character (Sikander.)
Anil Kapoor plays the head of the Singh family, who is being threatened and needs someone to make the problem go away as soon as possible. Enter Sikander: the family’s bodyguard and saviour. However, while the plot seems to be leaning in Sikander’s favour, he is nowhere to be found!
Sikander’s entry into the scene is very similar to his entrance in the trailer. When he knows his employees are in danger, he barges into the mix wielding guns and blazing eyes. While Salman Khan’s entry is exactly what one expects, what sets the ball rolling is Bobby Deol’s spectacular presence, after an absence of almost half a decade in the field of cinemas.
Every character in this high energy film is given a large amount of screen time. The first 30 minutes of Race 3 is dedicated to establishing the individual characters. After giving us a view of the family dynamics of the individual characters of the Singh family, the love story of Jacqueline Fernandez’s (Jessica) character and Salman Khan’s character unfolds.
The two met on an eventful day in Beijing a couple of years ago, with Sikander sporting a French beard to show the passage of time from then to the current day in the film. The couple’s love story unfolds over a heavy duty song titled I Found Love. While one would think this is the be all and the end all for the two love birds, Jessica goes missing and Sikander returns home to forget about love and focuses on work.
One would have thought a Race franchise would bring us entertainment, action and cars. However, unlike the first two parts of the film, this film falls rather flat. With almost no comic relief and terrible acting, the film just lacks to hit the right spots. The only saving grace seems to be Bobby Deol (Yash) who brings his years of experience and acting finesse to the story. Watch Race 3 if you have nothing else to do this weekend!
