In the midst of all the glitz and glamour that makes Bollywood, there comes a new movie with a thrilling trailer! From the makers of the moderately successful series of horror movies, we have the latest offering in the form of 1921. Featuring Karan Kundrra in his first lead role, this Hindi film stars Zareen Khan and is written and directed by Vikram Bhatt.

Karan comes to beautiful England in an attempt to pursue his passion, music. Enter Rose, played by Zareen Khan, a shape shifting spirit with serious anger management issues. 1921 has all the trappings of a truly simple horror movie. From the visual effects to the scenes itself, everything has already been done and dusted with.

Filled with jumps, spooks and thrills, the trailer of 1921 is all set for a perfect scare fest! Like every good horror movie, this one also has a good boy going to a new place to start his life over. The trailer reminds us of all our favourite Hollywood scary movies and seems like a weird mixture of Conjuring and Raaz in one.

The trailer has many moments of ghosts and spirits but you anticipate it coming, which makes you lose hope that it will manage to standout like the first one, 1920 which stared Adah Sharma, which was quite a hit. Written and directed by Vikram Bhatt, 1921 stars Karan Kundraa and Zareen Khan in lead roles. The movie is slated to hit the silver screens by 12 January, 2018. Check out the trailer here!

Baazaar Review And First Day Box Office Expectations

Published

Baazaar Review And First Day Box Office Expectations, Radhika Apte Baazar Movie Review, Baazaar Movie Review and Rating, Baazaar Box Office Collection Report, Baazaar First Day Collections Details, Mango Bollywood, Baazaar Movie Public Talk, Baazaar Movie Story and Highlights, Baazaar Hindi Movie Latest Update, Saif Ali Khan Baazaar Movie Review, Saif Ali Khan Latest News

Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte, Rohan Mehra

Director: Gauravv K Chawla

Review: 2 stars on 5 stars

Story 

The story of Baazaar revolves around the lives of people who have made it big and people who want to make it big. Rizwan Ahmed (Rohan Mehra) comes to Mumbai with larger than life dreams, hoping to work for the man he considers his idol, Shakun Kothari (played by Saif Ali Khan.) However, while one would think Baazaar revolves around Shakun, think again. The film explores the underbelly of the business world and how people function in a city like Mumbai. Rizwan is drawn in too deep, with greed, manipulation and lust forming the central crux of this stock market obsessed movie.

Review

Seemingly inspired by Martin Scorsese’s Wolf Of Wall Street, Baazaar clings on to the theme of “greed is good” all the way till the end. What works well for this film is the contrasting characters of Kothari and Rizwan. While one makes it a point to retain his very evident Gujarati roots despite living in Mumbai (Kothari,) the other works just as hard to get rid of his previous life (Rizwan.)

The other striking thing about this film is the different people who form the central crux of this story. Power brokers, stock brokers and businessmen form the basic essence of this movie, with more than enough drama to make up for the storyline and acting skills.

Unfortunately, despite a newbie and an interesting lead for the film, the entire film doesn’t quite make the impact one would think it would. Rohan Mehra makes a lackluster debut, Saif Ali Khan is unnecessarily over the top and despite Radhika Apte being beautiful in certain parts of the film, her dialogues are just really bland.

Namaste England Review

Published

Namaste England Review,Namaste England First Day Box Office Expectations,Namaste England Movie Review,Namaste England First Day Box Office Collections,Namaste England First Day Collections,Namaste England Rating,Namaste England Movie Rating,Namaste England Review and Rating,Namaste England 1st Day Collections

Cast: Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor, Aditya Seal, Alankrita Sahai

Director: Vipul Amrutlal Shah

Story 

Set against the varying backdrops of Punjab and London, Namaste England tells the story of how Param (Arjun Kapoor) and Jasmeet (Parineeti Chopra) meet and instantly fall in love. With more than a justified dose of drama, the film sees the evolving journey of love between Param and Jasmeet, a relationship which sees marriage on the cards in the very near future.

However, despite agreeing to get married, neither of them foresee the possibility of both of them not living in the same country together. As the wedding date draws closer, Jasmeet tells Param of her intention of pursuing her future in London. Playing the role of the love struck boyfriend to perfection, Param decides the place is not important as long as he is with his lady love and makes the bold choice to cross borders with Jasmeet.

Just when you think everything is going to be happy and rosy with Param and Jasmeet, London doesn’t see Param as a suitable resident and promptly rejects his visa (Jasmeet, of course, gets hers.) What follows next is the struggle the two love birds face to get to their happily ever after, with both of them trying everything in their power to make their union a happy and joyous one.

Review 

While it is a really good thing to see Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor back on the silver screen together after a long gap (Ishaqzaade was the last film they were in together,) Namaste England just does not live up to the expectations. Despite being shot in exquisite locations and having music that will certainly make you get up and dance, this movie just fails to hit the nail on the head.

The message the makers and the cast are trying to make is quite obvious. This film is about how a man wants to follow a girl and help her make her dreams come true, not the other way around. Unfortunately, what does not work for this Vipul Amrutlal Shah directorial is the fact the script and the story were written with minimal effort. To turn a great idea into a great film requires considerable work and this is something the makers of Namaste England completely missed.

All in all, Namaste England makes for a one time watch. What works for this Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor starrer is the strong nostalgic factor, taking one down the road of Ishaqzaade. At the end of the day, the only strong suit of Namaste England is the beautiful chemistry between the two leads and its catchy music!

FryDay Review

Published

on

FryDay Review And First Day Expectations, FryDay Movie Review and Rating, Govinda Fry Day Movie Public Review, FryDay Movie Box Office Collections, FryDay Bollywood Movie First Day Collections Report, Latest Hindi Movie FrDay Story, Mango Bollywood, FryDay Hindi Movie Highlights,

Cast: Govinda, Varun Sharma, Digangana Suryavanshi, Prabhleen Sandhu, Brijendra Kala, Rajesh Sharma, Sanjay Mishra

Director: Abhishek Dongra

Story 

A comic and slightly glorified take on infidelity, FryDay is an out and out Govinda based film. Set almost entirely in one specific location (Delhi,) the movie has some really funny lines, with most of the one liners handled brilliantly by the man for whom they seem to have been written. With perfectly timed comebacks and comic relief written with flawless perfection, FryDay is a tribute to films like Pati, Patni Aur Woh and some other Govinda classics.

Centering around Varun Sharma’s character (a water purifier salesman) and an actor specialising in improvisation (Govinda,) this particular Abhishek Dongra is an out and out laughter riot. Govinda’s character (Gagan) has a wife (Bela, played by Prabhleen Sandhu,) but she just does not seem to satisfy his urges. To satiate the never ending cravings, Gagan takes on a lover (Bindu, played by Digangana Suryavanshi.) The story takes a turn here, with all the characters coming into their own and each of them having individual spin offs to their storylines.

Review 

The central crux of the movie revolves around Gagan and Bindu, who are in lustless marriages and are tied together by bonds of never ending societal expectations. Varun Sharma’s character enters the scene, interrupting the highly built up and anticipated coitus scene, but very quickly discovers Gagan is far from being the ideal customer. What follows is a sort of comedy of errors, with different characters coming in and out of the scene.

All the major events in the film take place in one primary location, with multiple characters going in and out as per the script requirements. This particular Abhishek Dongra film scores well in terms of comedy, but has one fatal flaw: is it really okay to cast a humorous spin on infidelity?

FryDay is the perfect balm for a world that has not seen Govinda in action for a very long time. With every character playing their part to perfection, this movie is nothing short of an entertaining story in an industry dominated by serious and slightly over the top movies. Watch it with an open mind and an accepting heart for the acting and the comic relief!

Tumbbad Review And First Day Box Office Expectations

Published

featured, Mango Bollywood, Sohum Shah’s Tumbbad First Day Collections, Tumbbad Bollywood Movie Box Office Collections, Tumbbad Latest Movie Public Response, Tumbbad Movie Public Review, Tumbbad Movie Review, Tumbbad Movie Story, Tumbbad Review And First Day Expectations, Tumbbad Review And Rating

Cast:  Sohum Shah, Mohammad Samad, Anita Date, Deepak Damle, Jyoti Malshe

Director: Rahi Anil Barve

Story 

Treasure. Love. Betrayal. Revenge. A demon and an ancient story. Bollywood has rarely gone wrong with these themes and with Tumbbad also, success isn’t far off the mark! The story of this particular film revolves around a boy (Vinayak Roy) and how his life changes after being hit with a severe personal tragedy. On the road to finding peace and some sort of salvation, Vinayak meets an old lady who draws him into a life of greed, myths and the hunt of treasure no one has found to date.

At the base of things, Tumbbad is a horror movie with psychological undertones. With a strong theme of fear for the unknown, the film is the perfect depiction of what happens when your imagination runs amok. Furthermore, with slightly overwhelming scenes with just a little too much blood and gore, this story talks about how ordinary men turn into monsters when on the hunt for something they don’t understand.

Review 

Tumbbad, a village in Maharashtra, becomes the place where this film is set. Starting off with slightly over the top sequences of gods and goddesses, the film explores the grey shades of the leads as well as the locales in the village. The torrential downpour of rain n the village is synonymous with the wrath of the gods and the continuous dark hues shown is a dedication to the characters.

Tumbbad explores the other side of a world where absolute poverty propels people into doing things they would never think of doing. Hunting down fairy tales and fables from ancient India, this film is moody, to say the least. The depiction of the characterization of the time is perfection. The men are shown living in the Brahmanical way of life, with women living their one true purpose: serving men and making their life easier.

Filled to the brim with a moral, a story of hope, failure and acceptance, Tumbbad is quite possibly the most beautiful fairy tale written for adults. The characters have been really well written, with Vinayak’s love for money and his mother both shown with equal ease. The lady in the corridor is also given prominence, reinforcing the horror story angle, but not really telling the viewers how long the woman has been the way she is.

A bold attempt by a newbie, Tumbbad is not a tale many forget after watching it for just the first time. Greed, desire and the want for material wealth, all combined with the eternal hope and longing for a better life, is what makes this particular film such an endearing watch. Starting with the entrance of the British troops and culminating to an end when they are ready to leave the country, this movie leaves you wanting for more. Feeling like a part of your heart is left behind, Tumbbad is shades of grey, with no black and whites at all. A definite must watch that gives one an insight into ordinary life.

Helicopter Eela Review And First Day Box Office Expectations

Cast: Kajol, Riddhi Sen, Tota Roy Chowdhary, Neha Dhupia

Director: Pradeep Sarkar

Story 

 Helicopter Eela Review And First Day Box Office Expectations, Helicopter Eela Movie Review, Helicopter Eela Review and Rating, Helicopter Eela First Day Collections, Helicopter Eela Box Office Collection Report, Helicopter Eela Movie Public Talk, Kajol Helicopter Eela Movie Story, Helicopter Eela Public Review, Helicopter Eela Rating, Kajol and Riddhi Sen's Helicopter Eela Movie Highlights, Mango Bollywood

Helicopter Eela, Pradeep Sarkar’s latest offering, has a simple theme to its name: helicopter parenting and how children rebel in the light of overindulgent and over involved parents. To put it in simple words, helicopter parenting refers to parents who are always hovering over everything the child does. From getting up in the morning to going to bed at night, the life of a helicopter parent constantly revolves around their children.

A former model and singer turned single mother, Eela’s (Kajol) life is put on hold when her husband leaves their family high and dry. Saddled with a two year old (Vivan played by Tota Roy Chowdhary,) Eela decides her life has one purpose: making sure she plays the role of both father and mother, ensuring her son is left wanting for nothing, with all the love he could ever hope to get in the form of two parents.

In short, Helicopter Eela talks about a mother in her forties, ready to live her life the way she wants, now that her son is all grown up and adult. While others in this phase travel and take courses, Eela’s solution is to join the same college as her son! For the most part, Vivan is the indulgent son, knowing what his mother is going through and coming to terms with her smothering, showing his impressive and mature side. In short, this movie is a story revolving around a typical Indian mother and son relationship, with a reverse coming of age message.

Pradeep Sarkar has well defined characters, with the film riding high on multiple waves of emotions. Co produced by Ajay Devgn, this Kajol starrer is a musical film of sorts, with very emotional underlying tones of abandonment, betrayal and true love. While Kajol stars in her element (the doting and smothering mother,) the relationship between Eela and Vivan seems slightly forced at times.

Subtlety is given a wide miss in this particular film, with Eela thinking nothing of showing up at her son’s school picnic or of how he would feel as she just joined his college without asking him. The different scenes between the mother and the son are written without too much imagination and are examples of how a typical Indian middle class family functions.

However, while the first half seems to crawl like a snail, the second half picks up pace with considerable gusto. Eela’s strive toward achieving personal and family happiness is painstakingly obvious, while Vivan’s struggles with his overbearing mother are understandable. Unfortunately, despite the film having so much going for it, it misses the right impact mark by just a tad.

With a few twists here and there and just the right amount of drama, Helicopter Eela is an out and out Kajol film. However, as an impartial audience, one would expect a lot of loose ends to be tied up, which does not seem to come out in this Pradeep Sarkar directorial. At the end of the day, Helicopter Eela is the story of many single mothers, who overcompensate for the absence of a father by always being there. Watch it for the depiction of the relationship and the journey of acceptance and growth!
