B-town’s rising star, Vicky Kaushal, seems to have an unbreakable bond with the military dress. The actor will be seen essaying the role of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, the 1971 war hero, in a film helmed by Meghna Gulzar.  

On June 27th, which marks the death anniversary of Field Marshal Manekshaw, the makers of the film took to social media to share its first look.  

The first look features Vicky Kaushal dressed as the dynamic Field Marshal Manekshaw, sitting at his work desk.  Vicky was previously seen donning a military dress in films like Raazi and Uri: The Surgical Strike and it is no wonder that this new look of his got him a top spot in the Thursday trends with people showering their appreciation.

Sam Manekshaw was the Chief of Indian Army in 1971 when India fought the Bangladesh Liberation War against Pakistan.  He played a key role in driving India to victory. This film, though based on his life, is not a biopic.  

Speaking to the news agency PTI, Meghna Gulzar said, “The film on Field Marshal Manekshaw is not a biopic. I’m looking at the man, his life and his times. I’m way over my head over here (the story.)” 

Producer Ronnie Screwvala is backing the film under his own banner RSVP.  Speaking about the film he said, “Sam Manekshaw’s name will be etched in the history as one of the greatest soldiers and minds India has ever seen. Young India desperately need role models to look up to, needs to be educated on the contribution made by this icon to India — as we know it today. I could not have asked for a better storyteller than Meghna to collaborate with on this one and will be a treat to do this with Vicky again.”

Vicky Kaushal too shared his excitement with the media stating, “I feel honoured and proud of getting a chance to unfold his journey on screen.”

Vicky Kaushal and Meghana Gulzar’s last collaboration, Raazi, received widespread appreciation from the critics and the audience.  It even became a part of the prestigious Rs. 100 crore club. Given the success of Raazi, the expectations from this film will be quite high.

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan: A Beautiful And Fun Movie That Addresses Homosexuality

Rating: 4/5

Cast: Ayushmann Khurrana, Jitendra Kumar, Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta

Director: Hitesh Kewalya

Story:

The movie aims to address the deep rooted stigma in India  around homosexuality. Although homosexuality in India is decriminalised, people from the LGBT community find it hard to gain acceptance from family and society.  Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is the story of Aman Tripathi (Jitendra Kumar) and Kartik Singh (Ayushmann Khurrana,) a gay couple who reveal their orientation to Jitendra’s parents much to their chagrin and shock.  The rest of the story is about how Jitendra’s parents finally accept his choice to love Kartik.

Review:

The movie is set in Allahabad, where the Tripathi family stays.  Kartik and Aman visit Allahabad for Aman’s sister Goggle’s wedding.  The Tripathi family is taken aback by Aman’s choice for a romantic partner when he decides to display his love for Kartik at the wedding infront of all the guests.  Ayushmann Khurrana once again shines in the role of Kartik, a guy who was abused by his father during his childhood. Ayushmann and Jitendra Kumar, both of them subtly take the topic of homosexuality and break down the stigma surrounding it for the movie audience so they understand the trouble and pain a homosexual couple go through to find acceptance.

Director Hitesh Kewalya takes meticulous care to build up individual character arcs without affecting the pace of the movie and ties it up beautifully in the end.  Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao provide excellent supporting roles as the mother and father of Aman Tripathi, portraying the mentality of a small town family.

The entire movie is a family entertainer till the climax, which appears to be  rushed in order for the movie to reach a happy conclusion. The climax however does not take away the credit from the rest of the film which is beautifully told with some amazing acting talent.

Malang Movie Review-Aditya Roy Kapur And Anil Kapoor Shine Brightly

Published

on

2020 Bollywood Movie Reviews, bollywood movie updates, Latest Hindi Movie Reviews, Mango Bollywood, Malang Bollywood Movie Review, Malang Movie Plus Points, Malang Movie Rating, Malang Movie Review, Malang Movie Review And Rating, Malang Movie Story, Malang Public Talk, Malang Review

Rating: 3/5

Cast: Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, Anil Kapoor and Kunal Kemmu

Director: Mohit Suri

Story:

The movie revolves around the lives of two individuals, Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur) and Sara (Disha Patani,) who are in a non committal relationship in Goa.  Their life gets uprooted after a dramatic event, post which Advait goes on a killing spree after five years. He is pursued by two cops, Anjaney Agashe (Anil Kapoor,) a gunslinging cop without morals and Michael Rodrigues (Kunal Kemmu,) a righteous cop to boot.

Review:

The movie is set in Goa, which offers a rich backdrop for the film with its architecture, parties, beaches and carnivals.  Mohit Suri made use of all that Goa has to offer and portrayed it well. Aditya Roy Kapur plays an introvert who meets a stranger (Disha Patani) at a party and begins a relationship with her.  Disha Patani, on the other hand, portrays a free spirited girl who visits Goa to explore and live her life to the fullest.

Aditya Roy Kapur underwent a major transformation to achieve the muscular body he flaunts with ease in the movie.  His transformation from a simple person exploring Goa to a serial killer was brilliant and he pulls it off with finesse.  Disha Patani is suited to play the role of Sara and she portrays the character perfectly.

Anil Kapoor brings all his experience to the fore and is spot on in essaying a cold hearted cop without morals.  Considering Kunal Kemmu’s talent, Mohit Suri could have put it to better use. The film’s music is a saving grace and is woven perfectly into the plot.

All in all, it is Anil Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur who manage to save the film, which has a cliched story and muscled bodies fighting each other.
