Thappad Movie Review on Opening Doorz. Thappad is a lesson for men and women, especially for the woman of how not to be a doormat wife! By Martin D’Souza.
Malang, true to its promise, does unleash the madness. Step out if you want an action flick with no-frills attached. Don’t miss the ending, not a solid impact, but a twist nonetheless.
The sets are lavish, the screenplay laudable and the background score lifts the goings-on, on screen. The script, however, is lacking in depth and finesse.
Chhappak is not entirely gripping, yet is socially relevant. Full marks for Deepika for stepping out of her comfort zone and embracing a challenging role.
Milap Zaveri, who also credits himself with the writing, has himself to blame for this shoddy piece of craft that would have best been appreciated in the 90s!
Technically, the film is sound with the action scenes being first-rate. However, Siddharth Anand loses his grip on War by being generous with 36 extra minutes. Pankaj Kapur did the same mistake with Mausam with a run-time of 168 minutes!
he first half of the movie is a pure promotional documentary for Manali to boost tourism. The second half gets into a semblance of a story-telling module.
After 30 minutes into the film, director Vikas Bahl goes astray, focussing too much on drama rather than making the teaching a realistic affair. The slant is more on appealing to the emotions than dishing out a crisp plot.
For a Marvel fan who is familiar with the superheroes and has binged on the films, this is a delight and a must-watch. For a person who hasn’t watched any Marvel film, this will be a thriller. They too will find this a great watch and a movie to remember.
Vidyut Jamwal gets another opportunity to position himself as India’s one-man action hero with stylised fights, focussing on his expertise, and he does not disappoint.
Gully Boy is a celebration of life in Asia’s largest Slum. It does not demean the society but brings it to light in a beautiful manner without the frills and fancy of a typical Bollywood film. No naach gaana, no dishoom dishoom, just plain story-telling with its heart in the right place.
The only actor to catch the eye is Shreya Dhanwanthary who excels in the ‘Plain Jane’ look as well as the girl in a corporate set-up. Her transition, screen presence and character graph is the only good thing in the flick.
The movie is more a docu-comedy with director Vijay Gutte trying to highlight Dr Singh as he is. In that sense, he has been honest and Dr Singh’s character shines out throughout.
