Review Rowdy -TweetPlot = 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 […]
Plot = The movie tries to delve into the daily lives of single parents and their equation with their children, at various stages of life. Here, the protagonist is Eela Raiturkar (Kajol), a single mother and a businesswoman, who is nothing more than a watchdog, for his teenage lad Vivaan (Riddhi Sen). The movie showcases their tumultuous relationship, which goes through various ups and down, during its runtime!
Opinion = I cannot consider this as a MOVIE. This is SHIT, This is TATTI, this is a 3rd Degree Torture and everything else, which is torturous in this world, and not a movie at all. Before going into the details of this GARBAGE, let us do away with the list of celebrities, who have played a cameo in this SHIT of a movie. So, you will see celebrities like, MAHESH BHATT, ILA ARUN, BABA SEHGAL (Yes, he is still alive), GANESH ACHARYA, ANU MALIK, SHAAN and SHRI AMITABH BACHCHAN. Everyone was there, either to just party or to respect the relations they might be having with the makers. None of them added any value to the proceedings or the plot.
There is not even a single aspect, which is praise worthy in this SHIT. But still, the movie will definitely get an award for being one of the most pathetic movies produced, in the history of Bollywood. The makers have made a mockery of an extremely serious and burning issue.
The movie showcases the typical garbage of broken dreams of married women, relationship challenges faced by the young generation, etc, without any dignity or novelty attached with it.
Since, I am counted among the top critics of the country; I am bound to use a dignified language, in my reviews. Otherwise, I am dying to mention the dirtiest and weirdest abusive words for this movie, so that, it reaches to the makers as well.
If you are willing to take REVENGE with somebody, please gift him or her, a free ticket of this movie. That individual will never ever trouble or bother you, for lifetime!
Performances = I am dying to give a “tight slap” on the face of Kajol. She has crossed all the limits of over – acting. Her presence in any scene, is enough to boil your blood with anger, creating a cringe – worthy effect. The only saving grace was the performance of actor Riddhi Sen, which was pretty decent in his effort. The supporting cast has also done a pathetic job.
A potent actor like Zakir Hussain (College Principal) was completely wasted.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = Director Pradeep Sarkar must be taken to the GATEWAY OF INDIA (chose this spot because, people from western, central and harbor railway lines, can reach here smoothly), must be stripped naked and must be beaten with sandals, shoes and rubber chappals, after dipping it in a heap of cow – dung. If he can tolerate this SHIT and calls it a movie, then, he is eligible for such kind of treatment. The only thing, which is better than the entire movie, is the song MUMMA KI PARCHCHAAYI. Nothing productive can be mentioned about the remaining technical aspects.
Rowdy Rating = 0.5 / 5
Review Rowdy -TweetPlot = The movie traces the life journey of a boy named Vinayak Rao (Sohum Shah), who gets fantasized by a local legend of a monster named Hastar and his gold medallions, in his village Tumbbad. Vinayak’s greed of getting those medallions increases […]
Plot = A blind pianist Aakash (Ayushmann Khurrana) is the only witness of the murder of a yester – year actor (played by Anil Dhawan), at the actor’s own residence. He decides to lodge a police complaint and publicize the murder. But, how will he decode the incident, if he can’t see anything?
Opinion = The movie is a classic example of 2 halves being poles apart, in the same film. Right from the first frame, till interval, the movie is highly engaging and the build – up of the plot and its characters, is outstanding.
But, the second half drags heavily, and its length gets directly proportional with boredom. It has all the ingredients of a typical Sriram Raghavan movie (not considering AGENT VINOD here), but this time, the fizz of his direction was missing. The movie is a treat for connoisseurs of dark humor and edge-of-the-seat thriller. There are plethora of LOL and nail – biting moments, at regular intervals, in the first half. But, unfortunately, there is no key take – away moment, from the second half. I would consider it as just a one – time watch!
Performances = Ayushmann Khurrana is a revelation. If he is lucky enough, he might win decent number of awards this year, for his performance. The guy is just “bahumukhi – pratibha ka dhani”. The variations and shades in his character is expressed by him like an adroit. This is Ayushmann’s best performance till date. Actress Tabu (as Anil’s wife) has given a performance at par with the expectation. She looked seductive and deceptive, at the same time. Actor Manav Vij (as Tabu’s Boyfriend) showed potential in his acting. After a very long time, yester year actor Anil Dhawan appeared on screen, with a refreshing performance. A potent actor like Zakir Hussain (as Dr. Swami) was completely wasted here. The supporting cast did a decent job!
Direction = Director Sriram Raghavan is a master of thriller genre. The movie resembled a lot like JOHNNY GADDAR. He was successful in keeping me invested in the first half, but, the SHIT started to happen post interval. I don’t know why he unnecessarily convoluted a plot, which was at its peak, till interval. The Songs of the movie are below average (which is surprising as the protagonist is a pianist). The Background Score was successful in creating the right amount of tension.
Rowdy Rating = 3.5 / 5
