The Witcher web series is set in a fictitious world called ‘The Continent’. It is a mysterious place where witchers, sorcerers, mages, elves, monsters of all types, and humans thrive. Yet, they always try to outdo each other. It's a tale of family, love, courage, and destiny. The web series is based on the book series of the same name written by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. I have not read the book series, so I will not try to compare the web series with the book series.
The statistics in the end credits does not allow you to forget that this is not just a movie... It's an epidemic we are facing! Its easy to lose faith as the rape/crimes just seem to continue across the country.
Do watch Mardaani 2 in your nearest theaters.
As I said in the opening lines of this article that I was having high hopes from this film but I am a bit disappointed. So, I am giving this movie 7 out of 10. The reasons are many, such as I felt that the makers decided to make this movie because they had to. But the most disappointing reason was the weak and less exciting plot. Compared to this part, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was definitely a notch up.
As we are approaching 2020 in a few days; The World of Movies takes a look at the Top Bollywood Movies of 2019. The list is compiled by our regular contributors and the editorial team. We have included only those movies that we have watched and felt that they deserve mention in this elite list. Also, there’s no hierarchy in numbering.
Although the film fails to send across a strong social message but succeeds in providing wholesome entertainment. And, I believe this is what it is all about. We don’t need to delve too deeply into the subject and scrutinize it just for the sake of scrutinizing it.
One thing that I didn’t like about the original movie was the fact that at the end after going through all the troubles, Ranjeet (Sanjeev Kumar) apparently seems to have learned nothing. While Mudassir Aziz’s protagonist, Abhinav is shown having learn a lesson or two when he meets Neha (Kriti Sanon).
Tanuja Chandra's Qarib Qarib Singlle has no novelty or exciting factor, it has a theme that has been used over and over in many Bollywood movies. However, this movie is a bit different, the protagonists are in their mid-30s and have already seen much loneliness and pain in their lives. Jaya is a widow and is finally trying to move on with her life, but the love of her late husband is preventing her. Viyogi, a carefree man had three unsuccessful love. Now he wants to finally succeed in one. They embark on a journey to understand each other before falling for each other despite a myriad of differences.
I am giving Bala 9 out of 10 for its wonderfully executed plot and an impressive climax, something that Ujda Chaman couldn’t achieve last week. Bala’s excellence lies in having layered characters, excellent performances, and never-ending subtle humor. Despite a couple of flaws, this film is worth watching and I am confident that it is going to be one of the Top 10 Bollywood Movies of 2019. Also from the Box Office point of view, Bala is a certified hit and has every reason to join the 100 crore club.
I am not disappointed by Ujda Chaman, the reason is simple: I knew it was going to be a decent one-time watch movie. And, it is a good one time watch stuff anyway. Now coming to the sensitive topic of baldness that this movie portrays. I feel that Abhishek Pathak ruined a good opportunity to make a name for himself. The film goes overboard at places where students are seeing disdainfully teasing their teacher. I have never heard or seen such an incident in my whole life! So, I suggest you take Ujda Chaman’s story with a grain of salt. It feels closer to real-life at the start but as the predictive and monotonous plot moves forward the narrative becomes unrealistic. However, one thing that remains consistent is laughter.
It would have been great on the part of the director to show better character development. The monologue at the end too feels unconvincing; you can't just change youngsters by giving a 2-minute speech. I am giving Ujda Chaman 7 out 10 for Sunny Singh and entertaining consistent comic punches.
