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.

Dream Girl 2019 Movie Review

What Works for Dream Girl

Well, the answer is Ayushmann Khurrana and unlimited comic punches throughout the movie. Dream Girl is one crazy ride that starts with comedy and ends with it without indulging too much into social commentary. However, the monologue at the end conveys the social message in an effective way without disturbing the overall flow of the film.

After the success of Vicky Donor, this is the second time we are seeing Annu Kapor and Ayushmann Khurrana together and it works wonders here too. The script, dialogues, cinematography, and direction are awesome by every definition. Being born and brought up in Western Uttar Pradesh I loved the khadi boli/brij bhasha dialect  used with perfection in the film. The songs are beautiful and memorable especially Radhe Radhe and Ik Mulaqaat. I am sure people are going to remember them for years to come.

Hasee Toh Phasee Movie Review

Every relationship requires a breathing space as well as mutual respect for each other. But a relationship based on one party’s domination over the other will become zestless over time. This is exactly what happens with one of our protagonists. Nikhil is tired of Karishma’s frequent break-up threats and wants to live his life on his own terms. But apparently, being a good hearted guy with family values, he is reluctant to ditch her or is afraid of the consequences. 

But when Meeta enters his life, his perception changes towards relationships. He learns that what he was thinking as the best option for him has actually become a barrier for him in enjoying his life to the fullest.

The same applies to us in our real lives as well. We do not need to surrender our free will to anyone just for the sake of keeping a relationship alive.
