Bollywood Movies Checklist For The Year 2019!

Top Movies coming up in the year 2019!

It’s a known fact that Movies in India drive the people crazy and 2018 has been a year with many big reality checks for actors. This year started with a bang with Padmaavat, the movie made good money as well earned a huge name for Ranveer & Deepika. Like this, there were commercially hit movies and also parallel story movies which changed the theme of Movies. Bollywood has had its share of new actors who have made their mark felt. What’s better than knowing the different movies coming in the year 2019.

Let’s look at the list of movies coming in the year 2019 and the actors. 

1. Uri: The Surgical Strike (11th January 2019): The movie based on true events of Uri Surgical strike which will show us the big step taken by Indian Army and the Government. Starring Vicky Kaushal in the lead role with Paresh Rawal in supporting role, this movie promises to be one of the best in the year. 

2. The Accidental Prime Minister (11th January 2019): The movie again based on true events, in fact on the life story of former PM Dr. Manmohan Singh. Movie has been going through continuous controversies and political exchanges. Might not be a commercial success but it’ll be something very interesting to watch out for. Clashing with Uri movie as of now on 11th of January 2019. 

3. Gully Boy (14th February 2019): After his excellent performance in Padmaavat & Simmba in the last year, Ranveer Singh will be seen in a very different role in the movie Gully Boy as it is based on the Mumbai Street rappers. Alia Bhatt will be seen alongside Ranveer Singh. With two big actors in the movie, it’s going to be a Box Office favourite. 

4. Kesari (22nd March 2019): The first movie of four Akshay Kumar’s movie for the year 2019 will be released just before the 2019 elections. It’s a story based on Indian period war drama ‘The battle of Saragarhi’. The movie is produced by Karan Johar and in the opposite role making her come back is Parineeti Chopra. 

5. Kalank (19th April 2019): Most awaited movie for Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. It’s yet another period drama and produced by Karan Johar. Has got huge star cast as in Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit being the cast. 

6. Student Of The Year 2 (10th May 2019): It’s the third movie which is being produced by Karan Johar. This movie is sequel to the Student of the year which had created some magic and has given the industry three great actors. SOTY2 cast includes the famous Tiger Shroff, debuting is Ananya Pandey. 

7. Bharat (5th June 2019): Finally after 6 months into 2019, comes the movie of the Big Khan’s. The film has big stars like Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. With the release being scheduled for the EID 2019, Salman will surely hope for his fate to change. He has had bad year and is expecting to make a big hit in 2019. 

8. Good News (19th July 2019): Second Akshay Kumar’s movie for the year and it will also star Kareen Kapoor. A pair that hasn’t worked together since 9 years. This will be a comedy and family movie. 

9. Mission Mangal (15th August 2019): Akshay Kumar’s third movie in the year and it’s treated as the first space movie in the country. This movie will bring out the story of India’s Mars Mission which took place on 5th Nov 2013. Movie will star Vidya Balan, Tapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha and others. Movie is scheduled to be released on the Independence day of 2019. 

10. Brahmastra (20th December 2019): This will be the last one in the year of 2019 for me. Starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, this movie is expected to do really well. The date scheduled for Christmas. It’s a fantasy film which will be directed by Ayan Mukerji, produced by Karan Johar. 

These are the not the only movies coming in the year 2019, there are many other movies like Manikarnika, Housefull 4, Kick 2, ABCD 3, Panipat etc. There are also some movies whose release dates are not yet fixed, so with the movies for those the dates are released this are the top movies to watch out for in 2019!

While Movie Making is hard work, choosing the right date for its release is smart work!

But what I said above does not hold good all the time. Take for example the recently released Shah Rukh Khan movie Zero. It was supposed to be Shah Rukh Khan’s re-launch movie after a series of debacles he had in recent years. The last big hit he had was Chennai Express way back in 2013. Till date, only Chennai Express remains his sole 200 Cr plus movie. His other competitors like Aamir and Salman have five 300 Cr movies between them which Shah Rukh’s 300 Cr count is Zero. Even Ranbir Kapoor has joined the 300 Cr club with Sanju while SRK was still at Zero. 

So, SRK needed a big hit to bring back his sagging image.

2018: Sanju (Ranbir Kapoor) 341 Cr
2017: Tiger Zinda Hai (Salman Khan) 340 Cr
2016: Dangal (Aamir Khan) 380 Cr
2016: Sultan (Salman Khan) 300 Cr
2015: Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Salman Khan) 320 Cr
2014: PK (Aamir Khan) 338 Cr

Movie collections of movies over the years with Christmas Release

If you see the above data three out of the six 300 Cr plus movies were Christmas releases. The 2014 Christmas release PK was the first ever 300 Cr plus movie collecting 338 Cr. Then in 2016 Aamir came with Dangal again which even till date holds the Highest grosser for a Hindi film outside Bahubali collecting 380 Cr. Salman’s Tiger Zinda hai which released last year Christmas has collected 340 Cr. In fact, this Christmas release tradition was started by Aamir Khan way back in 2008 with Ghajini. It went on to become India’s first ever 100 Cr movie. Next year in 2009, Aamir again came back with another Christmas release 3 idiots which went onto becoming India’s first 200 Cr movie. PK released for 2014 Christmas was India’s first 300 Cr movie. Last 10 years almost all Christmas releases were big hits, except 2010 when Teesmar Khan of Akshay Kumar failed to hit the bullseye.

From 2014 every release during Christmas made 300 plus Crore. In 2015 also there was a clash with Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani releasing on the same day. Dilwale made 140 Cr and Bajirao Mastani made 188 Cr and the total together is 328 Cr. So, Christmas with a lot of holidays ending only with New Year presents a perfect time for releasing a movie.

Now, if we come back to the status of SRK, he is hungry for hits and he is behind the other Khans and even actors like Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor. Ranbir Kapoor’s highest grosser is Sanju that made 341 Cr while Ranveer has Padmavat which collected 295 Cr. He just missed the 300 Cr mark. SRK has Chennai express at 217 Cr. So, SRK roped in Anand L Rai an extremely talented director with huge successes like Tanu Weds Manu, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Raanjhna under his belt. SRK produced the film himself under Red Chillies banner and roped in Sridevi, Juhi, Salman and host of other Superstars to appear in cameo roles. He also booked Christmas slot and avoided a clash by forcing his friend Karan Johar to postpone the release of Simmba by a week. With all this, Zero was to make 300 Cr and SRK would have even imagined that this Christmas will have India’s first 400 Cr movie.

But it is not to be. Zero fell flat on its face. It just managed 55 Cr in the first weekend which is the 2nd lowest after Tees mar khan. The way it is going Zero cannot cross 150 Cr. But the landing costs of the movie were a whopping 225 Cr and that means SRK will not only lose his face but also will lose a lot of money. Then the question is, why did Zero Fail? Many say it’s the overconfidence and induced feel-good factor and too many things happening too soon. Shah Rukh has to remember that after he crossed 50, he should choose his roles bit more carefully and make movies that a realistic and appeal to his persona. He also needs to understand his limitations on his appearance and image. There was hard work in making Zero, but a bit of realistic approach would have done wonders. SRK is called the Badshah of Bollywood but he just has six 100 Cr movies and one 200 Cr movie.

SRK’s 100 and 200 cr movies

1. Chennai Express (2013) 217 Cr
2. Happy New Year (2014) 178 Cr
3. Don 2 (2011) 143 Cr
4. Dilwale (2015) 139 Cr
5. Raees (2017) 128 Cr
6. RaOne (2011) 113 Cr
7. Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012) 101 Cr

Now all eyes will be on Saare Jahan Se Accha, which will be the next release of Shah Rukh Khan. This is the biopic of Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian to land on the moon. The shooting will start in February and maybe they might be looking at 2019 Christmas for its release. There again, he has to clash with Karan Johar who is releasing his Brahmastra. If he wants to avoid the clash then he needs to take it to Republic Day of 2020. Till then, his fate hangs in balance and let’s see who all will join 300 Cr club before that and how many more 300 Cr movies and even a 400 Cr movie might come. For now, Shah Rukh looks like a tired star seeing his sunset years! Sad, but inevitable for any star…

2.0 Robot – Movie Review

2.0 and The Super Combination of Thalaiva Rajinikanth, Akshay and Shankar hit Bull’s eye!

Cast: Rajinikanth as Dr. Vaseegaran & Chitti (2.0) and Chota Chitti (3.0), Akshay Kumar as Pakshirajan, Amy Jackson as Neela and Shankar the Director.

A sensational movie that will be an eye-opener for sure, not because it’s the first ever Indian Movie to be shot with the 3D camera, but because of the subject of the movie. Robot – part one was well accepted by people because it was a new concept and to the people, it was easy to take it. The star actors Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai were a big bonus as well. But for the sequel to turn into something like what it is now, the story needed something really different and that’s where I think Shankar hit the bullseye. The script was excellently designed with subplots coming in at the right moment. The story goes smoothly towards upwards direction keeping the audience glued to the seats. That’s one big factor for the success of the movie apart from the Rajinikanth’s style and Akshay unbeatable adaptability of the role of Birdman. The failure of Thugs of Hindostan raised the bars on this movie even more and a lot of critics even doubted the movie’s run at Box office. But, the Movie’s Business, as well as the message, are being delivered fantastically as of now.

Story: (Next day) Students walk into the Robotics lab of Dr. Vaseegaran to have the view of the New Robot ‘Neela’ and Dr. Vaseegaran introduces the Robot to the students. When asked, he tells the students that it’s not as same as ‘Chitti’ but if required ‘Chitti’ has to come back. That’s one checkpoint in the movie right at the beginning of the movie. (Previous Day) Akshay Kumar playing the role of Birdman is shown walking towards the mobile tower and commits suicide. Akshay Kumar is the Birdman in this movie who by passion is an ornithologist (one who studies Birds). Pakshirajan has got the deep connection for Birds which starts from his birth, interestingly a bird saves him from death when he was born prematurely. Slowly incidents in life make him to accept that he is born only for Birds and his duty is to take care of the Birds. But, because of the high radiation created by mobile towers, Birds struggle to breathe and lose their memory power leading to their death. Birdman tries all his bit to save the helpless birds from the Tower Radiation. But he fails in doing so which makes him to feel very depressed and takes an ultimate step of suicide. The main subplot is this, where Birdman, an ornithologist who suicides returns to the world as the fifth force of all the dead bird’s power. Filled with anger, anguish, violence & revenge, Pakshirajan starts to steal the mobile phones of every individual and killing the associated authority personnel for their ugly behaviour towards him when he was alive.

This is how the story is built up and is extremely well scripted by Shankar. The time you think that movie is getting predictable you would be welcomed with something really surprising. The entry of Chitti and the defeat of Pakshirajan, the egoistic nature of a human leading to the rebirth of Pakshirajan with much more power and then the demolition of Chitti. This leads to re-entry of Chitti in the completely new avatar is something to watch out. Finally, the audience will be up for a major surprise in the last 30 mins of the Movie where you will meet the Chota Chitti. The fierce battle between the Robot and Pakshirajan and the message of Rajinikanth to the audience in the climax is really to be thought out.

My takeaways from the Movie: Definitely the applause must go for the 3D and the VFX effects used in the Movie. As promised the technology used in the movie takes this movie to the level of Hollywood. As an Indian, we must feel proud to be part of this movie. Rajinikanth who looked to be losing his charismatic style jumps out and proved himself yet again. Akshay Kumar as always was outstanding with dialogue delivery and played the villain role absolutely brilliant. Actually, even Rajinikanth plays a Villain role in the Movie. That said, the story was nicely built and concluded by the director Shankar. Surely a worth watch movie.

This movie also pops out some thoughts for an individual to think, are we (humans) the only living beings on this earth who needs to be given freedom, rights, life etc;. What’s with the other living beings who can’t speak, yet when domesticated they take care of their own better than anyone else. We raise voices when asked not to burst crackers, we raise a voice when asked not to cut down the forests and many more things which affect the environment. Because we can speak we are heard, what about those animals which can’t speak? Nobody can hear them. But we should understand that we need to use our heart and brain and think of those animals which are getting extinct. Unfortunately, our childhood has been a lot different from what our kids are going to have. Never I think technology is bad, but anything in excess is always bad. Every individual has to understand this point and stay in limits. That’s when we will be able to respect everything in the world and unknowingly we would be adding a lot of good deeds to our life!

Baazaar Movie Review #SaifAliKhan #BollyWood

Bazaar Movie Review – Saif Ali Khan aka Shakun Kothari says crossing the Line isn’t bad always!

Cast: Saif Ali Khan as Shakun Kothari, Radhika Apte as Priya Rai & Rohan Mehra as Rizwan Ahmed. Production by Viacom 18 and Directed by Gauravv Chawla.

This was the second movie I watched on my Birthday on Sunday and it was something I couldn’t miss. After all, it is related to ‘Stock Market’, the subject I teach. Baazaar was a much-awaited movie for many. Firstly for Saif Ali Khan who has been waiting for a good movie, Chitrangada Singh was making come back to the Movies and importantly for the debutant Rohan Mehra who played a crucial role in the movie. Finally for all those people who are waiting to watch a movie with a very different storyline. Baazaar had that different story which caught the attention of people and that’s the set of Stock Market fans. Maybe that’s a disadvantage, as many Stock Market jargons would’ve become tough for all those who don’t have an idea of Stock Markets.

Story: Rizwan Ahmed (Rohan Mehra) is a Stock Market broker who is born and working in Allahabad for a small trading firm, but he is always aiming for big things in life. Thus he leaves Allahabad and moves to Mumbai. Rizwan starts dreaming big in the city of Business & Finance. All through, his one wish was to work with his idol Shakun Kothari (Saif Ali Khan), but the greed of Shakun and his manipulative ideology, power, and the stock market draws Rizwan towards him, a little too fast. Rizwan idolizes shakun and wants to be as popular as him. It was a known fact that Shakun Kothari was a fraud businessman, but Rizwan always defends the business sense of Shakun and felt that nothing was wrong. Shakun only believed in the business where the money gets doubled in quick time and for that, he is ready to do anything. His powerful team helps him in manipulating the system perfectly without allowing the law to catch up.

Shakun Kothari is that kind of a person who believes in a 100-meter sprint whereas Rizwan Ahmed believes that life is like a Marathon. Movie Story completely revolves around the thought process of these two men. Rizwan falls into the trap of shakun only to realize with at the nick of the time, and life gives him the chance to correct them. His small-town mentality allows him to go to the terrace only to fly but not to die, and with that smartness, he traps shakun and beats him in his own game. and disturbs his life. Baazaar a movie based on Share Market is made to explain us the importance of values, morals and money etc.. This is for sure a very different and not an easy topic to choose but the response as of now has been good. In the movie world of Love, Romance, Horror etc this is definitely one of the few movies, which will be liked for its novel treatment and innovative approach.

My takeaways from the Movie: Firstly it was nice to watch a Movie which had shown the Stock Market as the main subject. The general public will be able to understand a few finance jargons if they watch this movie with some concentration. Apart from that, Baazaar is a movie which keenly talks about the right morals required for any person or an organization. The Movie hits at several issues and one of them is how one should live the life? Should it be a Marathon or like a 100-meter Sprint? The answer is a simple one, that always treat your life as Marathon and move forward. Because Life puts you through many surprises if you treat it as a Sprint you won’t be able to face them and a small error could cost you everything. When you treat life as marathon your energies are channelized and used properly and you will be able to see your destination clearly.

Not just this always one has to stick to the core values and believe in the right way of doing things, only then one can survive and last long! Else, you end up losing everything with the same speed with which you built them! Now the choice is yours, 100 meters or marathon!

102-Not Out #AmitabhBachchan #RishiKapoor  

102-Not Out #AmitabhBachchan #RishiKapoor

In today’s Tuesday post, I will in my own style I will be taking you through a very different movie that is made this year.

Lead Characters:
  1. Dattatreya Vakharia – Amitabh Bachchan
  2. Babulal – Rishi Kapoor
  3. Dhiru – Jimit Trivedi
Story:

Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of Dattatreya a 102-year-old father of 75-year-old Babulal. Dattatreya wants to send his son Babulal to an old age home because he wants to become the longest living human being on the earth and wants to break the world record of 118 years held by a Chinese man. He feels that his son’s seriousness and over disciplined nature will be of no help. He thus wants his son to leave him alone and let him enjoy life. This is not the story but it’s the story that Dattatreya creates to teach a lesson to his Son. Why that story gets created is what I leave it to ‘Theatres’ to answer. But that reason for which Dattatreya takes a drastic step is only to make his son stronger and keep him away from his son ‘Amol’. Amol is Babulal’s son who works in America and rarely writes letters to Babulal ending it with ‘I hope you Understand Papa’. This is the point on which Directory wanted to stress on.

Review:

This Story that is chosen by the director is definitely a unique one. The title of the movie itself has added lot of weight to the movie. Adding more weight is the terrific combination of Amitabh and Rishi Kapoor. Like any other film this film is also riding on the relationships, but in much different way. It’s not any other Love story. This movie moves around the bond between two people who are 102 and 75. It’s a very hard-hitting movie that speaks and deliver messages to those who outrightly disrespect parents. The points raised in the movie aren’t so easily taken. If it was any other actor, may be movie would’ve not had this great run on Box Office. This Movie is minus songs, romance and action sequences and is only based on pure chemistry. The chemistry between Amitabh and Rishi Kapoor is outstanding and everlasting.

Learnings from the Movie:

Every movie teaches us something and what we only lack is the approach. Approach becomes important because that is what feeds the message to out brain.

It is amazing to see that parents love their kids and kids love their parents. But only for certain period of time. This movie talks about how a kid’s love decreases and the parents love increases over the time.  We get blinded in the Love that we don’t listen to anyone’s words and we become emotionally attached to that person. May it be father and Son or Mother and Son. Relationships are emotional but they shouldn’t be so much that you get blinded in them. Through this movie director asks us to open eyes and look at the world.  If your Son is so busy that he doesn’t have time for your needs then you need to stay strong and as well teach him/her lesson rather than “beg things” from him.

October Movie Review – Varun Dhawan

Life in its colors of October….foggy, misty and filled with melancholy. That sums up October for you. All is well when the film opens. Its a story of Dan played by Varun and Shiuli played by new comer Banita Sandhu. You might have found the name shiuli strange, but its a flower’s name. Shiuli is a flower that blossoms only in October, when winters are about to set it. Its a flower belonging to Jasmine family, that has an amazing aroma and which blossoms at the desk and falls off by dawn.

Dan is a brat and Shiuli responsible, they have no connection whatsoever until something strange and unexpected happens. What happens throws both their lives completely out of gear and as the story unfolds you will feel as if you are watching some real life characters around you. October is not for those who want to go out and enjoy a sunday afternoon movie. It is for those who wants to contemplate life and understand its truest colors through the eyes of Shoojit Sircar who gave us Vicky Donor and Piku. Both the movies had a comic touch in circumstances which are comical, but October has a comic touch to Dan’s character in a melancholy.
Love is not about running around trees and holding hands. Its not about taking selfies are gifting things, its all about just about being there. The entire movie runs on the dialogue “where is dan” that Shiuli asks and Dan taking it as the expression of love from her side. Circumstances build up in such a way that during the entire movie he tries to find out why she asked the question and by the time he gets the answer, life shows an altogether different color. Love and life play hide and seek with you while you are watching the movie, and when you discover that love is moving towards its destination, life reveals its own plans. What does a human do when life has things that he doesn’t want to take? Dan faces this question in each and every scene and the final answer he gives is, he embraces life! When you embrace life, you wont complain what it gives you.
Performances wise Varun Dhawan is superlative and delivers his role to perfection. Banita Sandhu delivers her portions extremely well. All the other characters fit in perfectly and under less than 2 hours without any songs to disturb you, this movie is an absolute delight to watch. At the end of the movie you would shed a tear or two for the protagonists. You would surely want to be left alone after the movie to look at life and the uncertainties associated with it. I would rate it 4 on 5 for the sincerity surrounding it. Go watch if you want to see “Life” in action!

Ittefaq Movie Review

‘Ittefaq’ – Movie which doesn’t let you to rest even for a second.

What are the chances of you watching a Bollywood movie without songs and comedy? Very less or rather I can even say very rare. Ittefaq is one such movie which keeps you glued to the seat and staring at the screen for almost every second even without a song and comedy. Perfect movie to watch on Sunday if you have moved away from baseline Bollywood movies. Ittefaq as a movie is a brilliant piece of cinema making by Abhay Chopra. Kudos to the Director on this amazing movie. Though it was a remake it never looked like old one in fact was a different story.

Story is the most important aspect for any movie and then comes the way actors take it to next level.

Ittefaq is undoubtedly the best thriller that I have seen in Bollywood. Many twists with lot of drama and storytelling will be seen in most of the movie. When story is great, actors should be able to do justice to it and that’s what both Dev and Vikram Sethi have done. Siddharth Malhotra acting as Vikram is the famous novelist and is in huge pressure to give a hit after doing well with his first book but failing in his second book. With pressure mounting from many places and his career at stake Vikram decides to take a different route and win the fame back again. This ugly thought of his is what the movie is all about.

Characters and Drama!

The best character of this movie for his fantastic late comeback to the movies is the Dev played by Akshaye Khanna. Dev is the police officer and his role is filled with Dynamism, Humor and finally sharp Sensible feeling towards others. Adding to it we have the Sonakshi Sinha playing her role equally well and the police department officials also bringing in some amount of humor. It’s not the same Chor-Police story that we are bored of seeing. It’s a suspense thriller which shows how a police officer tries to solve a double murder where both suspects look innocent. Movie will surely be success thanks to heavy dialogues and superb screenplay.

To me this movie is must watch because it deals with problems of the success hungry people who choose wrong path. Keeping everything apart, this movie shows how beautiful media as a profession is and how much can a creative mind can bring out. You will love the movie most when the climax takes you to new climax.

Thanks to Yash Chopra sir for doing such a wonderful movie and Abhay Chopra for re introducing ‘Ittefaq’ to the media professionals and aspirants of this generation.

Half Girlfriend Movie Review

I haven’t read the book, the reviews that were out on first 2 days were not good. I was in a dilemma. I had my tickets for Sunday morning 11am show. I was in two minds, whether to go or give it a miss. Finally I decided to go. The trigger was the good 1st day collection that the film made inspire of Bahubali taking away a lot of screen space! It released in 2500 screens and collected 10 Crore on Day 1! That’s for a film which doesn’t have Khans or Akshays is no mean achievement. This year Akshay kumar’s Jolly LLB2 released in 3600 screens to collect 13.5 Cr and the great Shah Rukh Khan’s much awaited Raees released in 2800 screens collected 20 Cr. So, for a Arjun Kapoor starrer 10 Cr from 2500 screens is very very decent. Why then the reviews were bad? If the reviews were bad why people went to watch it? To find out I decided not to skip it!!
Glad I didn’t. It starts off on a very slow pace for a modern day Hindi film but gradually picks up pace. Entry of Vikrant Massey who plays the role of Arjun kapoor’s friend of all seasons. What starts as a typical college love story moves beyond college and starts following the life. Life does take you to different places. From St. Stephen’s college in Delhi to Patna in Bihar, we travel all the way to New York and UN headquarters and Bill gates foundation. Love teaches Madhav (Arjun Kapoor) to reject a placement and go back to his village to help his mother run the school. Ria (Shraddha Kapoor) dumps him, just because he forces her to bed on the advice of his friend Shailesh (Vikranth Massey). Ria’s marriage doesn’t last and she is back in Patna where Madhav comes to meet the representatives of Bill gates foundation. His aim is to build toilets for children in the school so that girls can come to school and get educated. Ria and Madhav’s love start blossoming again and Ria again leaves him when Madhav’s mother pleads her to leave her son alone. She leaves a letter saying she has cancer and she has 3 months of life left! Madhav goes to New york for an internship at UN and he is madly in hunt for Ria, who he believes is still alive! For those who read the novel, know what happens in the end and for those who didn’t, watch the movie to find out!
What is that one lesson that makes this worth a watch!
Its a very simple message. When you have problems, face them, don’t run away. If you run away the problem will again present itself there also, and how many places you can run and where all you can hide? More than Madhav taking her to bed, its the way he reacted to her avoidance by hurting her, when he pushes  her physically that made Ria to run away and get married. When her husband does the same, she divorces him, runs away and comes to Madhav. When Madhav’s mother hurts her by reminding her that she has the habit of leaving everything midway like basketball, studies, marriage and even the food in her plate, she run away from that situation also. Life doesn’t give that many chances but Ria is lucky to have a guy like Madhav who runs behind her every time she runs away from him! I was wondering what would happen if she stays there to fight on! She wouldn’t be losing so many things in life. There is no escape route or short cuts to problems. One needs to accept the reality and face them rather than running away from them! These were the thoughts when I was walking my way back to parking lot after watching the movie!
Final Verdict: Arjun Kapoor is a miscast as he doesn’t look like a typical bihari from any angle. I felt a chichora Ranveer singh would have electrified the screen playing a typical bihari boy. The energy difference is clearly visible between Arjun kapoor and Vikrant Massey. Shraddha carries her role very well but I thought Parineeti would have done more justice to this multi layered nuanced role. Other cast are just fine. But I love Vikrant Massey for his clarity and his finesse. This movie is really watchable if you think like a common man and his mindset. Dont judge it from the eye of a English novel reader. Judge it like a common man who thinks like how Madhav thinks. That is why people started going to theatres and watching the movie despite the bad reviews. Its important to keep the target for whom the film is made. This is for an average Indian and he will like it. I am giving 3.5 stars for this. It will be a HIT movie for sure and could go on to make 70-75 Crore at the box office!!
