Mahesh Babu has had an important role lately. Since Spyder flopped in 2017, he has delivered a trio of greatest hits courtesy of Bharat Ane Nenu, Maharshi and Sarileru Neekevvaru. However, even though these films became hugely successful, they somehow missed the boat when it came to acquiring that memorable status, which some of the superstar’s previous hits like Srimanthudu, Athadu, Pokiri, Murari and Okkadu . So does Sarkaru Vaari Paata, who also stars National Award winner Keerthy Suresh as the woman, restore that balance for Mahesh Babu in theaters? Well… not at all, but once again, it has all the branding elements necessary to give the actor another box office hit.

What is it about

Mahesh (yes, Mahesh Babu takes her own name) runs a loan agency and will go to any lengths to recover a debt. Kalaavathi (Keerthy Suresh), a gambling addict, borrows a large sum from him and threatens him with dire consequences at the hands of her corrupt businessman father (Rajendranath) when she doesn’t pay, leading to a confrontation between Mahesh and her father. what Mahesh claims to be a loan of Rs 10,000 and the truth behind it.

Check out the trailer for Sarkaru Vaari Paata below:

how hot

Unlike the previous 4-5 films of his, director Parashuram tried something different with the character of Mahesh Babu in Sarkaru Vaari Pata. The confrontation scenes between Mahesh Babu and Rajendranath also have a lot of spicy drama, while the action sequences reveal just how good they are. Production value is also slow, and R. Madhi’s camera work is another major plus point, as are S Thaman’s songs and background score.

what is not

Unfortunately, Parasuram reduced Keerthy Suresh, one of the greatest heroines in Tamil and Telugu cinema today, to a mere footnote and annoying character, with another Telugu filmmaker making a clear distinction between his hero’s vision and that of the filmmaker. heroin. It shows duality. Even more troubling is how the persecution is forgiven and yet the public feels that Bollywood needs to evolve or match these films. And try to present Mahesh Babu differently, the actor can barely play ball due to how handicapped he still is with his 1 note sense. The rest of the cast also inexplicably exaggerates it. Also, the script of Parashurama, especially the banking and scam parts, is full of plot holes in the form of a pit on the Moon.

verdict bl

Sarkaru Vaari Pata escapes some of the other recent Telugu films by delicately playing to its strengths and galleries, while confident in ignoring its weaknesses. He may not be an RRR but he is definitely better than Radhe Shyam, Acharya or Khiladi. I go with 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Classification:
2.5 of 5

Movie: Thar
Thar Cast: Anil Kapoor, Harshvardhan Kapoor, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Jitendra Joshi, Satish Kaushik, Mukti Mohan
Thar Director: Raj Singh Chaudhary
Where to Watch: Netflix

Thar has drawn inspiration from spaghetti westerns such as The Dollar Trilogy, Once Upon a Time in West, Day of Anger, Death Rides a Horse, The Five Man Army, The Mercenary, Jongo, and other masterpieces of the Western subgenre. About the American Wild West became popular in Italy. Thar has nothing to do with this genre and trope of cinema, other than strict locations and serious views with a certain remote fidelity. In fact, we’ve had spaghetti western inspirations in the past, known here as curry westerns, including Sholay, Mera Gaon Mera Desh, Khote Sikka, Loha, Anil Kapoor’s own jovial Sunny Deol, and more. Netflix’s Thar has nothing to do with spaghetti westerns. In fact, it has nothing to do with being a good movie.

What is it about

Siddharth (Harshvardhan Kapoor) moves to a Rajasthani border town, where Inspector Surekha Singh (Anil Kapoor) has not faced a proper criminal case over the years. Suddenly, bodies start falling, drug smuggling ensues, and a gang from across the border makes his presence felt. But Surekha has to decide if this gang is related to Siddharth or not.

Check out Thar’s trailer below:

how hot

Everyone’s performance is great except Harshvardhan Kapoor, but to be honest, we’ve seen Anil Kapoor, Satish Kaushik, and even Fatima Sana Shaikh perform better as they struggle to get past that garbage script. in which they are trapped. Only Jitendra Joshi and Mukti Mohan get roles with some meat and get their teeth fixed. Narrative-wise, the gruesome violence without flow or texture and the ending in which Fatima’s character is rewarded offer any semblance of interest.

what is not

Long story short, Thar has interesting characters, but as a unit they don’t do anything to make the plot interesting or move forward. The story flows aimlessly for 3/4 of the movie, and at the end, when Siddhartha’s motivations are explained at the climax, it’s a huge disappointment and seems made to death, different in Hindi cinema. So much to go through, huh? There’s also a lot of torture porn involved, which would be nice if there was a strong reason behind it, or at least some plot juice to put the torture into perspective. Writer/director Raj Singh Chowdhary’s previous film, his Disney Hotstar debut Shaadisthan, was much better and told a pivotal story. It simply spins aimlessly along dull, rocky terrain.

BL verdict

Thar’s only problem on Netflix isn’t boring, as it’s plotted from scratch and weakly directed. These new age Bollywood filmmakers need to understand the difference between boring cinema and art cinema firstly and secondly they are hardly doing anything new as they think what they are doing apparently inspired by international filmmakers It has been done decades ago. by our own teachers of the past. I’m going with 1 out of 5 stars for the show and some genuine horror bits.

Thar has been presented as an inspiration from spaghetti westerns like The Dollar trilogy, Once Upon a Time in the West, Day of Anger, Death Rides a Horse, The Five Man Army, The Mercenary, Django and other masterpieces of the western sub-genre about the American Wild West made popular in Italy. Thar has nothing remotely to do with this style and trope of filmmaking other than some remote allegiance with stark locales and grimy vistas. We’ve actually had spaghetti western inspirations in the past, known here as curry westerns, including classics like Sholay, Mera Gaon Mera Desh, Khote Sikkay, Loha, Anil Kapoor’s own Joshilaay with Sunny Deol and more. Netflix’s Thar has nothing to do with a spaghetti western. In fact, it has nothing to do with being a good movie per se.

What’s it about

Siddharth (Harshvardhan Kapoor) drifts into a Rajasthani border town, where Inspector Surekha Singh (Anil Kapoor) hasn’t had to deal with a proper criminal case in years. Suddenly bodies start dropping, drugs are being traded and a gang from across the border makes its presence felt. But Surekha needs to decided whether this gang is linked to Siddharth or not.

Watch the Thar trailer below:

What’s hot

Everyone’s performances, excluding that of Harshvardhan Kapoor is top notch, but frankly speaking, we’ve seen Anil Kapoor, Satish Kaushik and even Fatima Sana Shaikh deliver far better as they struggle to rise above the junk script they’re trapped in. Only Jitendra Joshi and Mukti Mohan get roles with some meat and they sink their teeth right in. Coming to the narrative, the gruesome violence albeit without any flow or texture and the final denouement where Fatima’s character is finally rewarded offer any semblance of interest.

What’s not

To cut a long story short, Thar has interesting characters, but they do nothing as a unit to make the plot interesting or even take it forward. The narrative drifts aimlessly for 3/4ths of the film, and finally, when Siddharth’s motivations are explained in the climax, it’s a huge letdown and looks done to death – so much for being different in Hindi cinema, eh? There’s also a lot of torture porn involved, which’d be fine if there’d be a strong reason behind it, or at least some juice in the plot to put the torture into perspective. Writer-Director Raj Singh Chaudhary’s earlier film, his debut feature, Shaadisthan, on Disney Hotstar, was far better and told a decisive story. This one just meanders without focus along a drab and rocky terrain.

BL Verdict

Being boring isn’t the only problem of Thar on Netflix as it’s just scratchily plotted and weakly directed. These new-age Bollywood filmmakers need to first and foremost understand the difference between dull filmmaking and art filmmaking, and secondly that they’re hardly reinventing anything as what they think they’re doing, obviously motivated by international filmmakers, has been done decades ago by our own past masters. I’m going with 1 out of 5 stars for the spectacle and some bits of genuine horror.

Movie: Doctor Strange 2
Doctor Strange 2 Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Rachel McAdams
Doctor Strange 2 Director: Sam Raimi
Where to Watch: In Theatres
Review by: Russel D’Silva Also Read – Trending OTT News Today: Mahesh Babu’s Sarkaru Vaari Paata digital release update, Doctor Strange 2 to stream online on this date

There was a time when Marvel movies and shows were all about fun, having fun, and preparing for their next installment. While the third aspect apparently still remains, the first two MCUs have gradually faded from phase three and now, in phase four, are all extinct. With the exception of Spider-Man No Way Home, Shang-Chi and Eternal have been harsh and very dramatic to varying degrees, while The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and the Winter Soldier are just complex and serious. There’s nothing wrong with being a little serious and dramatic from time to time, but when you forget your roots and the main reason people watch superhero movies, things quickly get stale. That’s the thing about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a movie so bleak, confusing, and pretentious for its own good, without really being smart, that you’re left wondering if you’d rather watch a superhero movie. The mind-blowing Aaye Hai or Christopher Nolan omits all the nuances that make a Nolan movie really smart.

What is it about

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sees our namesake superhero (Benedict Cumberbatch) at odds with other Avengers who turn Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), into a teenage girl, America Chavez, whose unique powers can open portals. instant to many parallel universes. . ,

Check out the trailer for Doctor Strange 2 below:

how hot

Sure, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is sleek and edgy, but bragging about its CGI is like saying there’s enough lamb in biryani: the balance of spice and rice aroma is what makes this biryani really stand out. they are standing. What’s cool is how technology is used to create a lot of fantastical worlds that really create the feeling of a multiverse. Director Sam Raimi also brings all of his old experience as a horror filmmaker to create some truly terrifying moments. Acting-wise, they’re all top-notch, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen walking around with the utmost respect.

what is not

Sam Raimi made two of the best superhero movies of all time, Spider-Man 1 and OG Spidey 2 with Tobey Maguire – the gold standard that probably stood the test of time because it’s not weighed down by tons of well-directed corporate canon. It was to carry forward a brand (not just a franchise). Also, if you’re making things this complicated and serious, you need to roll up your socks and explain the logic behind it, or else risk getting an egg in your face – Doctor Strange 2 Rarely Argument can back up its complexity.

Also, the whole crux of the conflict whereby Scarlet Witch becomes the enemy and evil is frankly riddled with plot holes and very pointless, even for those who have seen the miniseries, WandaVision, which is part of the movie. It serves as the main focal point. And expecting his audience to watch every movie, web series, animated show, miniseries, short film and God knows what his next movie will be next (I have it, but not all of them are and aren’t): the corporate manipulation of him. at its worst. Also, to reiterate, there is a difference between dark and interesting and dark and boring, as this MCU outing is extremely monotonous for the main parts, so much so that 2 hours sometimes feels like 20. To make matters worse, it also has two of the most intriguing post-credits scenes.

BL verdict

Not every superhero movie can turn into the Dark Knight, and if you can’t, having Deadpool is more than enough. Aside from being pathetic enough, Doctor Strange 2 also expects its audience to pass a review test of everyone in the MCU, including Marvel’s recent web series, when sometimes you just want to enjoy a movie. I’m going with 2 out of 5 stars for the show and some genuine horror bits.

Rating : 2 out of 52 Star Rating

Movie: Dhaakad
Dhaakad Cast: Kangana Ranaut, Divya Dutta, Arjun Rampal, Saswata Chatterjee
Dhaakad Director: Razneesh Razy Ghai
Where to Watch: In Theatres

Kangana Ranaut has been fighting a long streak of disappointing films, such as I Love NY, Katti Batti, Rangoon, Simran, Manikarnika, Judgmental Hai Kya, Panga, and Thalaivi, which have failed critically and commercially. Now, Dhaakad shows up, which is unlikely to change her luck despite showing her in a never-before-seen avatar, which she nails to a T. Sadly, her action-packed avatar appears in a movie she would rarely make a note of. footer, when it deserves to go down as one of the defining action roles in all of Indian cinema.

What is it about

Super-spy Agni (Kangana Ranaut) is tasked with infiltrating and taking down an international prostitution ring with roots in India, but double-crosses, an unexpected ambush and a pair of formidable enemies make her reevaluate her strategies. she forces to do.

Check out the trailer for Dhaakad below:

how hot

Kangana Ranaut looks, moves, and breathes the role of a rock-hard, high-octane, death-defying, skinny, mean, tough, kick-ass, daredevil personality agent in Dhaakad, in every action sequence. . Like a true professional on the battlefield with years of experience. Divya Dutta and Shashwat Chatterjee add some nice support as his antagonist and mentor respectively.

what is not

As convincing as Kangana Ranaut is with his action skills, she is deeply disappointed by the sheer, convoluted action choreography, so much so that some of the battle scenes seem like a complete joke. Beyond that, there are a lot of things about his character graph and the rest of the plot that are very convenient to carry the plot forward. Arjun Rampal, try as he might, cannot make a good impression because of how his character is portrayed. Even the big reveal at the end can be seen from miles away, and when it unfolds, it feels as if writer-director Rajneesh Razi Ghai and his co-writers Chintan Gandhi and Rinish Ravindra are on a script. I ran out, seeing how suddenly things ended. And while Dhakad doesn’t get bogged down with plot twists or slow writing, he continues to push the boundaries of disbelief to give us an unexpected laugh or have someone sing the same lullaby (literally speaking) for the fifteenth time in our lives. He takes the test of patience.

Check out my full video review of Dhaakad below:

BL Verdict

Kangana Ranaut goes all out as a badass spy in Dhaakad and pulls it off, too. If only the rest of the film was even of what her character is. I’m going with 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Movie: Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Cast: Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani, Tabu, Rajpal Yadav, Sanjay Mishra, Ashwini Kalsekar, Milind Gunaji, Rajesh Sharma, Amar Upadhyay
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 Director: Anees Bazmee
Where to Watch: In Theatres
Review by: Russel D’Silva Also Read – Shah Rukh Khan REVEALS one of the few things that his wife Gauri Khan allows him to do in the house

To be fair, the first maze gets a much better reputation than it deserves, at least in my opinion. It’s nowhere near the same league as one of iconic comedy director Priyadarshan’s best films, and truth be told, it’s a bit lacking in terms of horror or comedy for a horror comedy, starring mainly Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan. When clicked, the jump moves up and down. The script, and a great twist leading up to the climax, was an easy access to the Southern original before people even knew what they were doing with the new version. So while many may be hesitant about a sequel coming 15 years later and wanting to live up to its predecessor’s supposedly high standards, the reality is that Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 just needs its horror and comedy elements to become more Same. It needs to be done, more in sync and that’s half the work done there. Well, it does, and then some, with Kartik Aaryan leads Kiara Advani, Tabu, Rajpal Yadav and Sanjay Mishra, a tight script for the most part, and an even better pre-climax twist this time around.

What is it about

After meeting on a bus, Ruhaan (Karthik Aryan) accompanies Reet (Kiara Advani) to his ancestral palatial home in Rajasthan to help him pull off a big lie with his family. Although his family and the surrounding village soon become convinced that he can communicate with spirits, he is called Rooh Baba, both his face and the rhetorical lie to his family’s former evil spirit, Manjulika. . Quickly threatened with assault, Manjulika enters the fray.

Check out the trailer for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 below:

how hot

First things first Kartik Aaryan is Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is Kartik Aaryan as he has beaten Akshay Kumar from part one, walking various tightrope like comedy, emotion, romance, anxiety, swag and dance. He has given the best performance of him. . A professional, reminds everyone how a strong commercial script and a strong lead role, backed by a very good commercial actor, can give said actor the scope to show the full range of him, which might never be the case. There may be more to the art of the in-between movie. ,

Kiara Advani adds more promise to her growing skill set, holding her own despite the slightly undercooked part, while Tabu is given the larger role after Kartik, who actually acts as a catalyst for the plot. he’s doing, and there are no prizes for guessing what his pedigree is like. She chews him to the bone. As for the script, there are so many plot devices involved that everything can go terribly wrong, so kudos to Farhad Samji and Akash Kaushik for making it very simple, uncomplicated and well structured with the help of Anees. done. Bazmee’s best directing work in years.

A special nod to Akash Kaushik’s rib-tickling jokes that fly fast and dense from start to finish, without pause. Another thank you too, for the near-flawless makeup, especially in the flashbacks of how effortlessly young they make Tabu. The big twist is also very unexpected and satisfying, as there is just the right balance between horror and comedy, along with some really creepy moments that up the horror quotient.

The icing on the cake is how well all the other characters, big and small, are defined, and how well each supporting actor plays their part: Rajpal Yadav, Sanjay Mishra, Ashwini Kalsekar, and Rajesh Sharma with some great lines and lines. Make the most of the scenarios. His great comic timing. Other highlights include Manu Anand’s A-class cinematography, admirable visual effects, gorgeous production design, and Sandeep Shirodkar’s background score that is necessarily creepy or funky that collectively prevents the supernatural parts from making any sense. (Despite not spending the bomb in the technical department).

what is not

As satisfying as the preclimax is, the sequels are a bit confusing and raise questions about how things progress. The final execution also leaves a bit of an overwhelming taste in the mouth, especially compared to the previous one. Pritam and Tanishk Bagchi’s music is a huge disappointment, with no lyrics, with the forced exception of De Tali’s lesser impact. Once again editing is a problem, Bunty Nagi forgets about 20-25 minutes of the film.

Check out my full video of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 below:

BL verdict

Despite some narrative lapses during the climax and its slightly bitter aftertaste, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is a very funny and effectively chilling horror-comedy, featuring crack Kartik Aaryan in red-hot form, backed by veteran Tabu. What it does best, a tight script, Anees Bazmee’s best directing in years, a supporting cast from the game, and strong VFX, makeup, and production values, making it one of the best horror comedies in the world. Indian cinema and is an extremely rare sequel. which surpasses its predecessor in almost every aspect. I go with 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Rating : 3.5 out of 53.5 Star Rating
