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.
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.
Just like how Theo says – life is full of wickedness; life does have a way of inventing grave trouble. It can at times make you crippled, spiraling your very existence completely out of control. Just like how it happens with Lucas. We always believe that ‘TRUTH’ always triumphs. Really? Always?? Lucas was lucky enough to have his innocence proved. Not everyone gets that liberty.
I think that the title – The Hunt – symbolizes Lucas as the hunted one just like the deer he hunts. It draws an analogy between the powerless Lucas and the powerless animals he hunts. The movie makes you think about various uncertainties of life which yell out loud – ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!
The Hunt was premiered at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2012. The movie also competed at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
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.
