The Dirty Picture (2011) movie review

Box office Bollywood The Dirty Picture (2011)

Rating- 8/10

Direction:   To make a film on 80’s and to create the sets as per that era is certainly not an easy task.  But, Milan Luthria succeeds in delivering a brave and wonderful film like The Dirty Picture. Well narrated and wonderfully executed, The Dirty Picture is sure to strike a chord with the avid moviegoer. The films stands out because of Rajat Aroraa's dynamic script and razor-sharp dialogue.

The riveting screenplay and power-packed dialogue will remain etched in our memory for a long, long time, eliciting a similar response like Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.

The writing holds the spectators' interest and doesn't let you digress from the screen, except for a few minutes in the post-interval portions.

Acting:  Vidya's sizzling show and dare-bare act is sure to seize the viewers by complete astonishment. It's a novel casting because it is nothing like what Vidya has done before and is completely diverse to her image. But let's give Vidya the due: She delivers an astounding performance, pushing the envelope yet again.

Naseeruddin Shah expectedly is brilliant playing an ageing South Indian superstar. He pulls of the role with √©lan. One has to credit Emraan Hashmi for willing to take on bold, aggressive characters. Tusshar Kapoor had hardly  anything to do in the film.

Rockstar (2011) Movie preview

Director:Imtiaz Ali
Producer:Dhillin Mehta
Starring:Ranbir Kapoor, Nargis Fakhri
Release Date:11-11-2011


Rating- 8/10


Imtiaz Ali is a genius. The film bears the stamp of an accomplished storyteller. This is a forward-thinking film that handles the new-age relationships with complete understanding. The songs compliment the goings-on beautifully. This is amongst Rahman’s accomplished works.


Hot Bollywood celebrity Ranbir Kapoor carries the most difficult parts with remarkable ease. Sure, we've seen him as the cool, urban guy in several films, but this one's the most demanding role and only a seasoned actor could've delivered it with such precision.
Nargis doesn’t looks like a new comer. She not just looked pretty in each frame but also carried off each role effortlessly.


Rockstar is a musical film based on a character Janardan Jakhar (Ranbir Kapoor) who is born and brought up in the very middle class locality of Pitampura in Delhi, has a larger than life dream - of being a rockstar like Jim Morrison! But all he gets from his reluctant audience is ridicule and humiliation.

He's at his wit's end, when he realizes that all musical stars; all artists in fact, have one thing in common. And that is tragedy. They all have tragic lives.

They have all suffered painful heartbreaks to become what they are. Alas, there is no pain in Janardan's life - it is an oasis of peace. Unless he does something drastic, he will never become a rockstar. Heer Kaul is the undisputed diva of the college campus - beautiful, talented, arrogant, rich, and unavailable. She has broken many hearts. . Janardan hopes she will break his heart too. He sets out to woo Heer with the sole object of getting his heart broken.

Rock star is the journey of a boy - who leaves behind Janardan to become Jordan; who traverses the highs and lows of life - from simple naivete to tortured soul, from the pleasure of unaffected friendship to the torment of unrequited love, from the campus in Delhi to the international stage… He ultimately gets all that his heart has ever desired…but in the process shatters / loses his heart forever.


On the whole, Rockstar is for the young and romantic at heart. Sure, it's not perfect, but the terrific performances, melodious music and stirring emotional moments more than compensate for the hiccups.

RA.One (2011) Movie review

Current Movie Review  of  RA.ONE
Rating- 9/10

Director Anubhav Sinha along with co-writers David Benullo, Kanika Dhillon and Mushtaq Shiekh may be inspired by international flicks as far as the concept is concerned, but they ensure that they serve the right masala to moviegoers in those 2.30 hours. What actually takes you by complete surprise is not just the money spent on visual effects or the stunning chase and action scenes, but the twists and turns in the screenplay that unravel at a feverish pace.



RA.ONE is a perfect vehicle that does justice to the talent of Shah Rukh Khan. He seems to have found a story and character that work in perfect sync and tandem with manic energy. SRK steers this physically challenging lead role with high-spirited self-belief. He's endearing as the father and magnificent as the superhero with a heart. Kareena Kapoor is a delight to watch. She effortlessly glides into the character. Besides, she looks ethereal in the 'Chammak Chhallo' song and her wit is infectious. Arjun Rampal pulls his act with effortlessness and style. Also, Arjun's well-designed look is admirable.
Armaan Verma, the kid who has a pivotal part to portray. He stands shoulder to shoulder with SRK and Kareena all through the film and delivers a super-confident performance.


A father tries hard to fit into his son's world. While Shekhar [Shah Rukh Khan]  tries every trick in the book to woo his son, his son had given up on him. Just when the father-son duo hit a deadlock, Shekhar strikes gold when he designs one hell of a game. Finally, it all starts falling in place. But the happiness is short-lived. All hell breaks loose when the game that was meant to be played with, starts playing them.


The album of the film lives up to the grand expectations. Vishal-Shekhar deliver a striking score with 'Chammak Chhallo', 'Dildaara' and 'Raftarein' being the pick of the lot. The background score, also recorded by them, is equally electrifying. V. Manikandan and Nicola Pecorini's cinematography is top notch. Same goes for the stunts and chases [Andy Gill and Spiro Razatos]. Dialogue [Kanika Dhillon and Niranjan Iyengar] are hardly ever commonplace. What I found most interesting is that, whether humorous or thoughtful, the channel of communication appears very credible. The Ra.One and G.One suits, designed by Robert Kurtzman, are super.


RA.ONE is the most ambitious, most expensive and the most technologically complex Hindi film ever made. It pushes the envelope further. It's not merely a film, but an experience, an event. It's a film that will rewrite the textbook of computer graphics in Hindi cinema. RA.ONE is sure to shatter all previous records and set new ones, in India as well as internationally.

Force (2011) movie review

Director:Nishikant Kamat
Producer:Vipul Shah
Starring:John Abraham, Genelia Dsouza, Vidyut Jamwal, Raj Babbar, Mohnish Bahl, Mukesh Rishi, Sandhya Mridul
Release Date:30-09-2011

Rating- 4/10

Force (2011) movie :

Direction: *

Director Nishikant Kamat has the viewers' adrenalin pumping in this engrossing crime drama. Velocity and technique are the essence of FORCE. Add to it sharp dialogues and raw action. Though the storyline is far from novel, it is these attributes that keep you engrossed. Also, this deadly cat-and-mouse game ends in a spellbinding climax. Very frankly, the film has some fairly engrossing moments in the first hour, but there are times when you feel restless.

From showing off his chiseled body to lifting a 120 kg bike, John Abraham is a complete revelation and gives an outstanding performance. It is obvious that John has worked really hard -- honing his acting skills, concentrating on stunts and particularly on his physique. Besides action and his physique if we talk about John’s acting then it is nasty. It seems he has forcefully acted in Force.
Genelia is strikingly sweet and subdued. Besides, the on-screen chemistry between John and Genelia is infectious. The villain, portrayed by newcomer Vidyut Jammwal, is a worthy opponent, who is the proverbial Evil pitted against Good. His persona is striking and his performance, excellent. This guy is here to stay and his performance will be talked-about when the movie hits the screens.

Yashvardhan [John Abraham] is a senior narcotics officer who doesn't play by the book, but always ensures that justice is served. He believes that the only way to eradicate crime is to give criminals the bullet -- not handcuffs. In the midst of his most dangerous and significant operation to crack down on India's drug cartels, Yashvardhan encounters a ruthless enemy Vishnu [Vidyut Jammwal], who will stop at nothing until he gets his revenge for the damage done to his business by the narcotics team.

Yashvardhan also meets the free-spirited Maya [Genelia D'Souza], whose love pushes him to make a choice between the life he already knows and the life he could have with her. Just when everything seems to be going right, the enemy strikes.

It's the raw action that stays with you. The action scenes [Allan Amin] are the type that will have the masses go in frenzy, especially these two sequences -- the chase [John chases Vidyut, soon after Vidyut attacks him] and also the finale confrontation.


The film has the requisite amount of zing and force, so essential for action movies that talk of heroism. You won’t miss out a lot of masala if you give it a miss.

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster movie review

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster by

Director:Tigmanshu Dhulia
Producer:Tigmanshu Dhulia, Rahul MittraStarring:Jimmy Sheirgill, Mahie Gill, Randeep Hooda
Release Date:30-09-2011

Direction: ****
Director Tigmanshu Dhulia, known for his political thrillers ( Haasil, Shagird ) attempts to revisit the classic love story of Sahib Bibi aur Ghulam (Meena Kumari - Guru Dutt) in contemporary times and a North Indian countryside setting. While deriving the essence from the original, his interpretation of the tale has an attitude and identity of its own, thereby averting any categorical comparisons.

Tigmanshu Dhulia gets the grammar of his milieu absolutely accurate. One can see royalty fading away through the paint peeling off the walls of Saheb's ancestral mansion. The mannerisms of the noblemen are as aptly captured as the polish in their language. Dialogues, undoubtedly, are a major highlight of the film with a powerful punch or a caustic remark in every second line. They don't write it like this anymore!

The director, at no point, lets the romance track overpower the original conniving essence of the film. Babloo falls for Biwi pretty early in the plot without the traditional trappings of a love story and yet their chemistry is credibly convincing. To achieve that the film employs explicit physical intimacy between the two, which despite being audacious, is never tawdry.

All the three title leads come up with brilliant performances and each character is so strongly written that no one overshadows the other. Jimmy Sheirgill has impressive screen presence and is authoritative in his commanding characterization of Saheb. Mahie Gill has the sensuality and maturity to pull off the role of Biwi with perfect poise. Her eccentricity, intimacy and deception add assorted shades and depth to her character.

Randeep Hooda plays the best character of his career so far and gets immense scope to show his performance prowess. The passion, obsession, emotions and expressions he brings to his character is simply outstanding. Deepraj Rana as the Saheb's loyal aide is a man of few words but strong screen presence. Shreya Narayan as the mistress exudes rustic sex-appeal. Vipin Sharma makes for a good negative lead. Deepal Shaw is decent as long as she lasts in her short-lived character.


Aditya Pratap Singh is Saheb (Jimmy Sheirgill) in his story, coming from a royal lineage, though royalty seems to be evading him with changing times. He struggles to maintain his regal lifestyle through his own political nexus. Biwi (Mahie Gill) is his third wife who yearns for Saheb's attention but he is too busy with his mistress. A smalltime gangster Babloo (Randeep Hooda) is appointed as the new driver of Saheb's wife. Soon enough, the lovelorn wife falls for Babloo, resulting into a lethal illicit affair. But there's more than what meets the eye.

Saheb Biwi aur Gangster has to its merit a taut and crisp script that never gives you a moment to blink and keeps you riveted through its runtime. All three protagonists have shades of grey but are so strongly developed that there is no single character that you are rooting for all through the film. And since you are almost equally inclined towards each of them, the narrative turns more unpredictable and interesting for you. Even the supporting characters - be it Saheb's loyal aide Kanhaiya, his mistress Mahua or his step-mom are integral to the narrative, adding density to the drama.

Strongly recommended. A must watch!
