The makers of Nanu KI Jaanu just dropped their first song, Tere Thumke and from the looks of things, the song is just amazing! The song features Abhay Deol and Sapna Chaudhary and gives the horror genre a funny twist.

The upbeat desi number, sung by Gunwant Sen and Khushboo Jain along with Saumya Upadhyay, has been penned by Abid Ali. Essentially a Haryanvi song, Tere Thumke is fun, a little twisted and crazy in all the right ways! Listen to it here!

Directed by Faraz Haider of War Chhod Na Yaar fame, Nanu Ki Jaanu follows the story of a ghost who is in love with a crook. Written by Manu Rishi Chadha and produced by Inbox Pictures, the film is slated to hit the big screens on 20 April, 2018.

Pihu Review And First Day Box Office Expectations

Published

on

Director: Vinod Kapri

Cast: Myra Vishwakarma

Story

The story of Pihu is based on the life of a two year old girl (Pihu,) trapped alone in a house and what happens when there are no adults around. The entire film centers around this little girl and shows us how the 2 year old survives on her own for the entire day without being connected to the rest of the world. With montages of a birthday party (Pihu’s birthday,) a cake and people chatting, the opening scene quickly dissolves into a serious one.

Pihu wakes up in the morning next to her mother, who is dead. With no father around and no adult in the house, the film immediately shifts to a scary story. With Pihu playing the lead, one gets a glimpse of what to expect from the movie. Navigating through the house, one sees how everything is unkempt, how every ordinary gadget is now a safety hazard.Kapri takes you through the different parts of the house, showing the disarray and the severe state of dysfunction of not just the house, but the family as well.

Review

Right from the very first scene of the movie, one can see the movie is going to be fraught with tension and uncertainty. Everything in the house is a threat to this two year old girl and unfortunately, she has absolutely no access to the world outside. As a director, Kapri sets the scene right from the opening credits, with dialogues from the movie running over caricatures and childlike drawings.

A couple of years ago, Kapri’s first directorial, Trapped, showed the struggles of an adult trapped all by himself in a house for 24 hours. Pihu seems to follow a similar story line, without the drama and over the top action scenes. Using a two year old to bring to life a parent’s worst nightmare, Kapri brings to the fore everything parents do not want happening.

Although the movie is said to be based on a true incident, the film seems very similar to Kapri’s first directorial.  Drawing parallels from the  theme of Trapped. the underlying message talks about what happens when you are left alone for longer than you thought you should be left alone. While the attempt at making a film like this was commendable, Pihu would have worked better as a short film rather than a full fledged movie.

Kapri’s thriller has everything you could want from a perfect thriller. However, it lacks the special touch required to make it a truly brilliant movie. Myra Vishwakarma does a brilliant job as the two year old Pihu, with the camera work adding the right kind of effects. Watch the movie to find out what happens when a child is alone and helpless.

Baazaar Review And First Day Box Office Expectations

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

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

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.
