Bala Movie Review

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.

Ujda Chaman – Movie Review

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.

Made In China 2019 – Bollywood Movie Review

Boman (Vardhi) is a doctor, a sexologist wanting to create an awareness that sex and related issues are not taboo. Rajkummar (Raghuvir Mehta), is a business man with no real business. Motivational speaker Paresh Rawal (Tanmay Shah) explains to him how the consumer is a fool and will buy whatever idea he sells while the other speaker Gajraj Rao (Abhay Chopra) wants in on people’s profits. Mouni (Rukmini Mehta) plays the wife with two item numbers to her credit, nothing more. Manoj Joshi and Sumit Vyas seem to want to say more than they were allowed to, thankfully.

“The Sky Is Pink” Movie Review

The Sky Is Pink gets a 10/10.. begins with ‘The End’ and takes you back through 25 years with a middle class Indian family. It revolves around over before and after an ill child. While you are still thinking about abortion being right or not, you start figuring out post death memories.

There are cute moments, cloying moments, and moments you want to just stay in. There are times you pray for the Chaudhrys then there are times you identify with their lives, compare yours to sneaking your friend into the house, feeling jealous when Niren is enjoying some attention from another woman and so many others.. then quickly you send up a small prayer for all things good in your life.
