Published

on

MOM portrays the life of a biology teacher in Delhi. She enjoys the suburban life with her husband. However her world takes a U-turn when her stepdaughter is physically assaulted by a hot shot and his friends. Will she take the help of law to punish the accused or will she hunt them by herself, is what remains to be seen!

Mango Bollywood Rating: 

Cast & Crew
Director: Ravi Udyawar
Producers: Boney Kapoor and Sunil Manchanda
Music: A.R. Rahman
Cast: Sridevi, Akshaye Khanna, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Adnan Siddiqui, Abhimanyu Singh, Sajal Ali
Duration: 2 hours 27 minutes
Story:
Sridevi plays a middle aged woman biology teacher Devki Sabarwal. She is enjoying her suburban life, in Delhi, with her second husband Anand, played by Adnan Siddiqui. Arya aka Sajal Ali plays her stepdaughter. Instead of calling her ‘mom,’ Arya prefers to call her ma’am because she also teaches her daughter in school. Devki shares a trying on off relationship with Arya.
Meanwhile, an alcohol fuelled party goes terribly wrong when a bunch of guys decide to gang rape a girl and it turns out to be Arya. This is when Devki puts on her fierce mom look and takes law and justice into her own hands.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the role of a detective and Akshaye Khanna the righteous cop, who helps Devki fight for justice.

Movie Review:
Sridevi nails it perfectly as Devki, but MOM is not only about Sridevi’s performance. Unlike her previous film English Vinglish, MOM is bolstered by a solid supporting cast. Sajal Ali plays the strong and vulnerable girl. Adnan makes a terrific husband to Sridevi. Abhimanyu Singh plays the ruthless villain. Nawaz plays the perfect family man with a conscience.
On the whole, MOM is a terrific film and this is one of my favorite movies so far not just because this is Sridevi’s film.

  • What’s Good:
  • Sridevi’s terrific performance
  • The movie’s plot hold you till the end

Final Verdict:
Whether you are a Sridevi fan or not, MOM is a must watch.

Anurag Kashyap, one of the finest directors of Bollywood is the mastermind behind this incredible series.

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.

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!

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!

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

Race 3 Review And First Day Box Office Predictions,Race 3 movie Review,Race 3 hindi movie Review,Race 3 movie rating,Salman Khan Race 3 movie Review, Race 3 1st Day Box Office Predictions,Race 3 film collections,Race 3 movie collection Prediction,Race 3 movie public talk,Salman Khan Race 3 movie excepted collection, Mango Bollywood

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!
