Lust Stories

Lust Stories

Review Rowdy -

Plot = It’s a compilation of 4 different stories showcasing the length to which, individuals can go, for quenching their sexual – urge.

 CHARACTER LINE UP: – 

Story 1:- Kalindi (Radhika Apte) & Tejas Bhave (Akash Thosar) – Directed by Anurag Kashyap

Story 2: – Sudha (Bhumi Pednekar) & Ajit (Neil Bhoopalam) – Directed by Zoya Akhtar

Story 3: – Reena (Manisha Koirala); Sudhir (Jaideep Ahlawat) & Salman (Sanjay Kapoor) – Directed by Dibakar Banerjee

Story 4: – Megha (Kiara Advani); Paras (Vicky Kaushal) & Rekha (Neha Dhupia) – Directed by Karan Johar


Opinion = The movie is intriguing throughout. Considering that the stories are helmed by extremely reputed and trusted Directors, you expect to see a decent and refreshing content. However, I still feel that the movie “Lipstick Under My Burkha” (which had a similar premise) was much better and entertaining in its execution. The first story (Directed by Anurag Kashyap & Starring Radhika Apte) was highly disappointing. You take time to get sold to its premise, but again, the climax of the story leaves you in disdain. The second and the third story are the best of the lot. Overall, the movie is like a half-cooked khichadi, which gives you a very good breeze, but when you taste it, you feel the need of adding some more salt!

Performances = The movie clearly belongs to Actress Bhumi Pednekar; Actress Manisha Koirala; Actor Sanjay Kapoor and Actress Kiara Advani. All of them have given an outstanding performance. Especially, actress Bhumi Pednekar definitely deserves an award for her mind – boggling performance. She is establishing herself in the clan of Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil, Sridevi and the likes, with her every new outing. She has expressed a lot of things by remaining silent. It was a treat to watch Manisha Koirala & Sanjay Kapoor, giving a splendid performance, after a very long time. The sharpness of their talent is still intact. Actress Kiara Advani will start getting more offers from the fraternity, after the industry stalwarts see her performance in this movie. The pain of being sexually – unsatisfied, is clearly visible in her expressions, which testifies my above statement. Actor Vicky Kaushal is just repeating the same monotonous performance in every movie. If he does not choose his scripts wisely, we, as an audience, will not get to see him frequently on screen. Unfortunately, talented actors like Jaideep Ahlawat  & Radhika Apte are completely wasted here. I don’t understand why Radhika chose this script, as her character was single – dimensional and quite boring to watch. Actress Neha Dhupia was just present for showcasing her blouse – clad breasts. The supporting cast was decent in their performance.


Direction & Other Technical Aspects = As a FAN, I expect a much better content from Director Anurag Kashyap. After NO SMOKING, he has disappointed me again. Director Zoya Akhtar has done a fantabulous job. Her direction doesn’t even allow you to blink your eyes. Her story was the most engaging one. I appreciate her “attention to details” and the way she has scripted the dialogues and the proceedings. Director Dibakar Banerjee also never disappoints. The suspense – factor in his story, will keep you hooked to your mobile – screen. Director Karan Johar’s story was like a comic – relief to the intense proceedings. His Direction will keep you entertained!


Rowdy Rating = 3.5 / 5

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Review Rowdy -

Plot =  Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Howard) take charge of shifting some species of Dinosaurs from an island, which is on the verge of getting destroyed by a massive volcanic eruption, to a secluded area, in order to save them from extinction.  Will Owen & Claire succeed in saving the species, or their life itself will go for a toss?


Opinion = The movie is another addition to the legacy of Jurassic Park franchise. The difference is that, a lot of technological advancements have taken place since its first installment which released in the year 1993. However, barring the usage of CGI and VFX, the movie fails miserably due to a weak script. Even with just 2 Hours of runtime, the movie seems never ending. There was a dearth of twists and turns and the movie just proceeds with its own convenient pace. However, there are numerous moments which will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat. Some of them seem deliberate, others look very subtle. The fans of the franchise might get disappointed with absence of a strong script. But, the movie has something to watch for every age group!

Performances = If any movie revolves around any kind of Beast, the acting acumen of the human characters get restricted to screaming and giving dreary looks. Same thing happens here also. So, I cannot comment anything about the performances of Chris Pratt & Claire Dearing. However, the child actor has given a very impressive performance. The remaining cast was just average.


Direction & Other Technical Aspects = I felt that Director J.A. Bayona had nothing much to do, as majority of the sequences are presented by the VFX Team, which are world class, and also the script was very weak, which restricted the scope of Bayona. The Background Score and the Sound Effects of the movie gives you the required adrenaline rush. The mountain – view and volcanic – eruption shots are breath – taking.
