Cast: Sara Ali Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput, Pooja Gor and Nitish Bhardwaj
Director: Abhishek Kapoor
Based on a love story that comes together in the light of a tragic life altering disaster, Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath brings together multiple issues (love through religions and natural calamities to name a few,) weaving a beautiful tale toward the end. Centered around the cloud burst and the subsequent flash floods of 2013 in Uttarakhand, Kedarnath attempts at bridging the gap caused by religion in the wake of a natural calamity.
Mansoor Khan, a local porter (played by Sushant Singh Rajput,) falls in love with Mukku, a Hindu girl (played by Sara Ali Khan) visiting the holy temple of Kedarnath. While Mukku’s and Mansoor’s parents play the disapproving parents of children who fall in love despite all that is against them, Mansoor plays the man who proves that he doesn’t care about all the odds very obviously stacked against him.
With the devastating floods playing one of the key elements in this particular movie, the strong love between the two leads (with their own fair share of drama,) makes for the rest of the parts. As Sara Ali Khan’s debut film, Kedarnath could not have worked better in bringing out the best in her. Another point that works really well for this Abhishek Kapoor directorial is the fact, it proves love exists no matter what. In fact, one of the key points in this movie is the way Kapoor shows Muslim porters living in harmony in a town where Shiva is the main idol.
While Sara Ali Khan plays the girl who just cannot stop talking, Sushant Singh Rajput plays the role of an unconventional hero. With seasoned ease and skill, Sushant Singh Rajput shows us the many layers involved in a sensitive issue such as love between people belonging to different religions. Although Abhishek Kapoor seems to be constantly revising a story already told multiple times in the past, Kedarnath has its own positives in the way story is treated. While the story may be one which has already been told, the film is refreshing and is worth a watch!
India’s Most Wanted Movie Review
Director: Raj Kumar Gupta
Cast: Arjun Kapoor, Prashanth P. Alexandrr, Rajesh Sharma, Shantilal Mukherjee, Asif Khan and Gaurav Mishra
A Raj Kumar Gupta directorial, India’s Most Wanted shows how 5 officers led by Prabhat (Arjun Kapoor) track down India’s most wanted terrorist, Yasin Bhatkal. Without using weapons, guns or any kind of monetary support, the team of officers track and bring to justice India’s most wanted terrorist.
Inspired by true life events, India’s Most Wanted tells the story of how officers not only nab Yasin Bhatkal, a terrorist and the founder of the Indian Mujahideen. This movie showcases the hunt for Bhatkal renamed Yusuf, and also depicts the massive gaps with the way Indian law enforcement agencies deal with crime. The movie opens to a group of five officers who get a tip off about the whereabouts of Yusuf and they swear to bring him to justice in under four days.
Unlike other crime thrillers, this movie shows the officers as five ordinary men with no fancy frills or over the top gadgets. However, while the story is solid as it goes, the movie lacks the tension and drama one would expect. The underplaying of the officers seems to go against the plot and not work with it, making the movie seems slightly long and winded.
However, while the obvious tension is missing from the film, the fact that all the officers live with the fear of death at the hands of Yusuf keep you hooked. Filled with songs and different scenes of worried characters, the movie builds up to a nail biting climax.
What works for this movie is the way Raj Kumar Gupta uses a cast which perfectly portrays the ordinary life of the officers. Prabhat (Arjun Kapoor) plays the role of the leader who takes it upon himself to capture Yusuf.
All in all, the well rounded way the actors and director Raj Kumar Gupta, work makes the film a good watch. Telling the story of unsung heroes and silent officers who make India safe, India’s Most Wanted, tells a story which needs to be heard.
PM Narendra Modi Biopic Review
Director: Omung Kumar
Cast: Vivek Oberoi, Manoj Joshi, Prashant Narayanan, Anjan Srivastav, Darshan Kumar, Zarina Wahab, Rajendra Gupta, Boman Irani
Just like the name of the biopic suggests, PM Narendra Modi is based on the life of Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. Chronicling the beginning of his life as a tea seller at a railway station, the movie maps the political journey of the Prime Minister. The biopic climaxes at the point where Mr. Narendra Modi swears in as the Prime Minister of India in the year 2014!
Despite the release of PM Narendra Modi being delayed by the Election Commission of India (EC) till after the Lok Sabha elections, the release is nothing short of a victory parade. Since the beginning of the movie, the makers have made sure they pay tribute to PM Modi in every way possible.
Every frame is a tribute to the rise of man who was once a tea seller at a railway station who rose to first become a RSS member and then the Prime Minister of the Country. For those who love the man unconditionally, this biopic is a reaffirmation of their faith but, for those who like to watch biopics with a solid dose of reality, will question the finer points.
While Modi is shown in almost god like form, the opposition is shown as a weak and incompetent party. Perhaps what makes a stark notable point here is that Manmohan Singh has absolutely no speaking role in the film. While businessman Narayanan is seen working with journalist Kumar to bring down Mr. Modi, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are shown as figureheads with not much of a role.
The only other character in the film who has almost as much screen space as Mr. Modi is Boman Irani, who plays the man responsible for giving Gujarat the Tata Group. Unlike other biopics (Thackeray for example,) PM Narendra Modi offers no points of debate.
Overall, the film is worth a watch if you are a Narendra Modi Ji fan but not if you want to watch a well thought out biopic.

Sonam Kapoor just shared the first look poster of her new film, Zoya Factor, on Twitter and it looks whimsical.
— Sonam K Ahuja (@sonamakapoor) May 23, 2019

The poster showcases Sonam and Dulquer sitting in a cricket stadium and gazing into each other’s eyes. The chemistry between the leads seems to be on point in the poster. Fans can definitely expect this film to be a fun filled entertainer. Catch Zoya Factor in cinemas from 20th September 2019.
Movies To Watch With Your Mother
Despite Mother’s Day gone past us, there are so many ways one can celebrate their mother. One of the nicest ways to celebrate this day with your mother is by binge watching these beautiful Bollywood films and sharing a special day together:
1. Mother India
Mother India depicted the true strength and courage a mother has when it comes to protecting her child. Telling the story of Radha (Nargis) this movie shows how a mother fights all the obstacles around her to raise her children. A testament to a mother’s love and dedication toward her child, this movie should definitely be on the list of films to watch with your mother if you haven’t already!
2. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
While this mother daughter relationship might not be something we can relate with right now, what made it stand out when the film released was because of the underlying tone of understanding and secrecy shared between them. Right from the beginning, the way Farida Jalal understands what Kajol is going through and the kind of internal angst she faces, one can really appreciate the bond. As the movie progresses, one can see the relationship grow so much so that when we watch Farida tell Kajol to run away, it breaks your heart. Watch this movie and cuddle up with your mother, because the tears won’t stop flowing.
3. Bend it like Bekkham
So many times in life, we don’t appreciate what a mother goes through. Bend It Like Bekkham shows us exactly like this. On the one hand, you have a Punjabi mother desperate to show her daughter the “right way” and on the other, you have a mother trying to fit her into societal expectations. With both the mothers, there is one thing in common: a daughter who refuses to accept the rules. The parallel relationships make you appreciate all a mother does for you and if you want to tell your mother you understand her, then watch this movie!
4. Nil Battey Sannata
Perhaps one of the sweetest movies between a mother and her daughter, this film talks about how much a mother wants to see her daughter succeed in life. This need is so strong, the mother pushes herself to make sure her daughter studies and comes out a brilliant student. Not afraid of society and ridicule, the mother enroles herself in the same school as her daughter and motivates her in every way possible. So far, this movie is definitely a really well made film about how far a mother can go for a child. A must watch on Mother’s Day!
5. English Vinglish
We live at a time when language is unfortunately a barrier between relationships. This is exactly what happens in English Vinglish.Sridevi plays the role of a mother who isn’t confident with herself primarily because of the fact that she doesn’t know English. Thinking this is a drawback, she holds herself back from being all that she can. When she finally decides to start learning the language, the confidence is so great, it is almost like she transformed into another person. A coming of age movie, this film pulls at all the right heartstrings.
Watching movies like these with your mother is a great way to show her how much you love her. What is your favourite movie to watch with your mother on Mother’s Day? Comment and let us know!
PM Narendra Modi Trailer Released
After a long wait (and just short of the Lok Sabha elections,) the trailer of the biopic about PM Narendra Modi was released today. With Vivek Oberoi playing Narendra Modi, the trailer maps out the Prime Minister’s life from before his entrance into politics to being a Prime Minister. With subtle prosthetics and makeup done the right way, Oberoi has pulled off Modi’s character perfectly.
Opening to the days of Modi’s life as a tea seller at a railway station, the trailer moves forward to show how Modi ended up as one of the most important persons in India. With hard hitting slogans, the tri colour fluttering with pride and hints of anti Pakistani sentiments, this movie is a tribute to Modi. Watch the trailer here and now!
— Vivek Anand Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) March 20, 2019
Apart from giving us an insight into Modi’s life, the trailer also shows us what to expect from the different characters in the film. Furthermore, it also shows us Modi’s life as a child and about his self imposed exile from family and marriage life. From rescuing Muslims, to saving a burning Gujarat and to the victory of Modi’s party in 2014, this trailer shows Narendra Modi as not just a leader, but a man of action.
While some people argue, this movie is about furthering and promoting the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) before the Lok Sabha elections, others say it is a dedication to the Party’s leader. Also starring Boman Irani, Manoj Sinha, Zarina Wahab, Barkha Bisht, Darshan Rawal, Akshat R. Saluja, Anjan Shrivastav, Rajendra Gupta and Yatin Karyekar, this biopic is directed by Omung Kumar.
With most of the film shot in Gujarat, the biopic is co produced by Sandeep Ssingh, Suresh Oberoi and Anand Pandit. Initially scheduled to release on the 12th of April, the release date of PM Narendra Modi was changed. This movie is now slated to hit the screens on the 5th of April this year.
