Review Rowdy -

Plot = The catastrophic flood of Uttarakhand, occurred in 2013, forms the crux of the story, where the makers have tried to weave a love story in this tragic event. Here, Mandaakini Mishra a.k.a Mukku (Sara Ali Khan), is a daughter of a highly respected […]

Review Rowdy -

Plot = The movie is a sequel to the 2010 superhit movie ROBOT. The plot gets shifted to current time, where a psychopath named Pakshi Rajan (Akshay Kumar) has created havoc in the southern part of the country, by robbing the mobile phones of all […]

PIHU

PIHU

Plot = The movie is a cinematic representation of a real – life incident, of the state of Uttar Pradesh. Here, PIHU, a 2 year old toddler, gets confined to her home, with an unresponsive mother and a careless neighborhood. What follows is a series of spine – chilling and thought – provoking incidences, which shakes up the small world of PIHU!


Opinion = I would beg to differ in my review, from other critics. Before patronizing this flick, I had referred to a couple of reviews on the movie, published in reputed publications. Everybody, in general, highlighted that, the movie is slow in its execution, it’s unnecessarily lengthy; the screenplay is weak, etc. Nowhere, I am able to tally with their opinion.

According to me, the movie is exactly made, as it should be. In layman terms, it is a modified version of the Rajkummar Rao starrer, critically acclaimed movie, TRAPPED.

But here, the situation is even more horrifying, as the protagonist herself is a 2 year old toddler.

The movie absorbs you completely, right from the first frame, making it a highly engaging affair.

You definitely need a very strong heart and ample of courage to watch this flick.

The presentation seems genuine and serves the purpose of offering a spine – chilling thriller.

I would specifically like to appreciate the film – maker’s effort, because, apart from taking references from a real – life incident, they have also brought the spotlight on the carelessness of the people, living in our society.

For a while, just think that if your 2 year old kid is left all alone in your house, without any attention or guidance, you will then be able to predict, very closely, about what all incidences might have taken place in the movie.

To sum up the things, I can only state that, it’s an outstanding piece of cinema, made rarely in BOLLYWOOD. A must watch!

Performances = Child Artist Pihu Myra Vishwakarma might get all the awards this year, allotted exclusively, for her age category. She is the only living being present on screen, throughout the runtime. The supporting cast interacts with her, either on phone call, or by remaining outside of their house. The entire movie runs on the strong shoulders of this brilliant artist. Actress Prerna Vishwakarma (who is the reel and real mother of Pihu) excels in the parts where she is been coerced by Pihu, while trying to wake her up.

 


Direction & Other Technical Aspects = Director Vinod Kapri must not lose hope or confidence, by watching or reading the reviews of other film critics. Review Rowdy is with him. His efforts are really praise – worthy. I can understand how challenging it would have been for Vinod, to direct and base an entire movie on a toddler. The Background Score is enough to give you goose bumps at many places. The Editing and the Camerawork of the movie, has placed the script on a superior pedestal.


Rowdy Rating = 4 / 5

Opinion = Finally, the trailer of ZERO is here. This is one of those movies who got heavily exploited during the initial promotions, such that, its buzz lost its steam till the release of its trailer. The makers had also released a teaser (with special […]

JALEBI

JALEBI

Plot = It’s a remake of a hit Bengali – film, where an estranged couple Dev (Varun Mitra) and Aaisha (Rhea Chakraborty) meet on a train journey. The movie then oscillates between their past and their present, leading to a relieving climax!


Opinion = I literally had no expectations from the movie. But, I am happy that I chose to review it. This one is the best among all the 4 Bollywood Releases this week. The movie has no buzz surrounding it, but still, I had a delightful experience watching it. It presents a love story, filled with dignity. The treatment of the proceedings, do not deviate from the standards set for the movie.

However, if I ignore some technical and performance related shortcomings, the movie is definitely a new breeze of entertainment. The first 10 minutes of the movie is marred by mediocrity, but, post that, it becomes highly engaging. Also, the melodious soundtrack (as always expected from Bhatt Camp) helps you connect with the lead characters, on the emotional front. I literally had tears in my eyes, while watching the climax sequence.

It’s a treat for all die – hard romantic movie lovers!  

Performances = Everybody scores full marks for their performances. Actress Rhea Chakraborty was lucky to get such a meaty role. She has done a fantastic job. The icing – on – the – cake is the performance of debutant Varun Mitra. He has an outstanding screen presence. At places, he reminded me of Zain Durrani of KUCH BHEEGE ALFAAZ. He was perfect for the role. The supporting cast also, gave a very productive performance. Special mention of actress Digangana Suryavanshi, who gave a mind – boggling performance. She had expressed and conveyed a lot, only through her facial expressions.


Direction & Other Technical Aspects = Barring some faults in the execution, the work of Director Pushpdeep Bhardwaj is praise – worthy. He has handled an emotion – heavy subject, with finesse. As expected from Bhatt Camp Movies, the songs are extremely melodious and moving. The Background Score also acted as a catalyst in setting up the moods of the characters and the proceedings!


Rowdy Rating = 3.5 / 5
