3 Reasons You Must Watch Karwaan Movie

Karwaan Movie

Three Lost Souls; Two Dead Bodies; A Journey of a Lifetime

The above words sum up what is on offer for all of us in Akarsh Khurana’s upcoming movie Karwaan, which is going to hit the theatres tomorrow across the country. Karwaan is supposedly a slice of life movie that will take you to soul refreshing journey.

Karwaan is a movie that will give you plenty of moments to laugh as well as filling your eyes with tears. The movie revolves around three characters: Avinash (an IT worker), Shaukat (a car mechanic) and Taniya (a student). They all belong to different walks of life with no connection to each other, yet destiny binds them together as they find out that they both have one thing in common. Of course what that one thing is will only be known to us tomorrow once the movie is released.

However, in this article, we will look at 3 reasons you must watch Karwaan movie this weekend.

1. Dulquer Salmaan aka ‘DQ’: When you have a father with a stature of Mammootty, acting got to be flowing in your veins. Karwaan is DQ’s debut movie in Bollywood, but the Malayali heartthrob has already won many awards in South Indian film industry and has established himself as a leading actor there. In the trailer, he looks at ease sharing screen space with Bollywood veteran Irrfan Khan. By the way, the most astonishing thing that I liked about Dulquer Salmaan is his good hold on ‘Hindi’. It looks like we are going to see him in many more Bollywood movies in future.

2. The Mesmerizing Nilgiris & God’s Own Country: Having travelled to Tamil Nadu and Kerala, I promise you that this ‘road journey’ from Bengaluru to Kochi via Oooty will make you fall in love with South India. The trailer shows enough of greenery and scenic spots to give us a hint about this journey of a lifetime that our three lost souls embark on.

3. Irrfan Khan: We all know what he is capable of pulling on screen. So no point in discussing or praising his acting prowess. However, what is worth discussing is his character of a Muslim car mechanic who keeps us laughing in his signature style. This is the second movie in two years where Irrfan is taking us on a journey, in case you don’t remember, in 2017 he took us on a tour de India in Qarib Qarib Singlle. Both these movies have one thing in common–throughout the journey Irrfan and his partner keep meeting new and strange people and learning new experiences that enrich their soul.

The music is given by Prateek Kuhad, Anurag Saikia, SlowCheetah, Shwetang Shankar and Imaad Shah. I particularly liked the song “Chota Sa Fasana”. The other songs too are good with some refreshing music and lyrics.

So, having read this article, I guess it is time you book your tickets on Bookmyshow for Karwaan Movie.

Is Sanju Movie Worth Watching?

Movie: Sanju

Director: Rajkumar Hirani

Year: 2018

Genre: Biography, Drama

Language: Hindi, English (some dialogues)

 

Before Sanju, the Sanjay Dutt Biopic was released many of us were thinking, “Should I watch Sanju”? “Is Sanju a biography based on truth”? or “Is Sanju just an effort to vindicate Sanjay Dutt”?

Well, I am not sure whether we can give answers to all these questions, but one thing that we are sure to answer is trying our best to give you a concise review of Sanju Movie.

Sanju Movie Review:

The most awaited biopic and foreseen blockbuster of 2018 has already taken the Bollywood by storm. At the end of its 6th day, Sanju has already crossed 200 crore mark*. The movie seems as a lottery ticket for the theaters. Almost, all the slots are booked for Sanju.

Theaters are houseful for Sanjay Dutt Biopic, even in the second week!

I give it 9/10 for its wonderful script and excellent acting by Ranbir Kapoor, who has literally transformed himself into Sanju Baba (Sanjay Dutt). The background score too is good; one thing that was a little disappointing was the songs–they are just okay to say the most.

The Real Hero in The Sanju Movie:

For most part in Sanju, Sunil Dutt (Sanjay Dutt’s father) is portrayed as a hero and became a thought-slayer. In fact, he truly is an ‘unsaid hero’ on the screen as well as in his real life. He was a Johnny On The Spot and supported the nation bravely during the post Babri Masjid demolition riots that rattled many parts of the country in early 1990s. Today, a very few of us have knowledge of Sunil Dutt’s contribution during that dark time of our motherland. The cinematic legend is an equally great human.

About Direction of Sanju Movie:

The best part of Sanjay Dutt’s Biopic is it’s direction. Every scene in the movie gives you a travelling experience; travelling backwards to learn about  the unknown history of a worldly known face. It creates a perfect blend of mystery, drama, effects, and timeliness.

Cast:

Ranbir Kapoor is indeed the best choice to play Sanjay Dutt. After Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Ranbir Kapoor has really given a performance of his life. Paresh Rawal, as usual steals the show. Manisha’s comeback in Bollywood after a long-time was a charm.

The not-so-smooth flow of the story became a reason to make people sit on the edge of their chairs, with same level of curiosity till the end. Sanju. One man.. Many lives is truly a fascinating character.

 

*By 19th July 2018 Sanju Movie has crossed INR 520 crore mark and is expected to reach INR 650 crore by the end of July 2018.

October 2018 – Movie Review

Movie: October

Releasing Year: 2018

Director: Shoojit Sircar

Writer: Juhi Chaturvedi

Country of Origin: India

Running Time: 115 minutes

Language: Hindi

Genre: Romance, Drama

My Two Cents on October Movie:

Some days it is important to pen down your heart-wrenching feelings. Be it about a movie or book, feelings do come to you like waves. I am glad I am amongst those wonderful souls who happened to watch October movie. Words are not enough to define the human emotions I did experience while watching this masterpiece. What a surreal and subtle way of touching the strings of your heart? What a splendid way of portraying the real characters and opening the thread of relations one after another? I am not sure how one director or actor ends up in justifying the fit-to-role emotions perfectly from genesis till the end.

October 2018 Movie Review:

I was amazed by looking at the promo and trusted my hunch enough to watch it this weekend on the theater. I am writing this review with a heavy heart because this movie made me laugh out louder, took me to journey of friendship, taking me back to the road of love and finally disappearing in the face of the death, like everybody else disappears. I could relate it to more because somehow I was expecting this movie to be extra-ordinary. Varun Dhawan deserves a standing ovation for delivering such a powerful performance. His dialogue delivery and eye-to-eye meet expression made me believe actors like him do exist and they move people like me just being on the screen. I would applause every character as their emotions were so real and dialogues let you step into their shoes as if it was happening with one of you.

Some stories don’t start with an agenda nor do they end with one? October movie started on such a hilarious note and ends by leaving you teary-eyed. I feel like watching it again because it’s beyond the concept of usual love stories and dramatic family movie. It holds the truth which only few of us live and that’s “The power of being real and following your heart”, “The taste of courage which only few shows”, “The feelings which are hidden deep inside, yet you don’t forget to feel them”, “The people who you love the most and miss them while in pain or joy”, “The person who once left unannounced and never came back”. I believe it’s a plethora of emotions which you can only feel while watching and once you step out of the theater, it’s your heart you are going to feel the most inside your body.

I may someday, somehow, after gathering courage, would watch it again! It’s too heavy for me to go for next show again. I am going to let it sink in me completely.

Aiyaary – Movie Review

Movie:Aiyaary

Releasing Year: 2018

Director: Neeraj Pandey

Writer/Screenplay: Neeraj Pandey

Country of Origin: India

Running Time: 167 minutes

Language: Hindi

Genre: Crime, Drama, Action

 

Aiyaary Movie Review:

Aiyaary…means the art of deceiving which seems magical. The promos, however, did look promising and magical and being a fan of Neeraj Pandey’s direction, it pulled me to theater to watch it.

As the promos suggests, the movie is based on the Indian army where Siddharth Malhotra is playing the role of Jai Bakshi who is a part of special force (a secret force/division) that performs the coveted operations of the Indian army. He is led by Manoj Bajpayee aka Abhay Singh, the “Aiyaar” of the movie along with 5 other members. Jai Bakshi, while doing his job finds out some dirty secrets of the army and the insiders behind it. Analyzing what would happen to him, his team, army or the country for that matter if the conspiracy he found out about an arms and ammunition deal cracks down. So, he decides to handle it his own way which, in turn, makes him go rogue and projects him as a traitor. Manoj Bajpayee gets on a mission to stop Jai Bakshi, the brightest and his favorite member of the team and his girl friend Sonia (Rakul Preet Singh), the internet hacker, from getting successful in their mission.

Aiyaary Acting Performances:

Manoj Bajpayee has done total justice to his character with his flamboyant acting skills. He looks convincing in the role he plays and steals the show. Siddharth, however, nowhere looks like a soldier…just by wearing the uniform, one can not become or portray an army man. Aiyaary as a film has a brigade of fine actors like Kumud Mishra, Anupam Kher, Pooja Chopra, Naseeruddin Shah, and Adil Hussain, but none of them were given the roles that they could have nailed it. In fact, their appearances were so short and untactful that it made me disappointed. The plot was not easily understandable or intriguing. It was a confusing story. Dialogues and screenplay were very weak. The direction was very poor. The only reason I kept glued to the movie was because I was waiting that may be something interesting would happen. The scenes were too exaggerated and boring at times. The climax of the movie was totally abrupt. It left you with a feeling that the plot defeated the purpose it actually based on. Didn’t feel like it was a Neeraj Pandey movie…It felt so amateurish. All n all not worth spending time n money.
