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 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

Plot = It is a Bengali short film (with English subtitles) based on some incidents of Ramayana, where actress Radhika Apte is playing the title role, who is living in a mansion with her 78 years old husband, played by actor Soumitra Chatterjee. One day, Mr. Indra Sen – a local police inspector, played by actor Tota Roy Choudhury, enters Ahalya’s house for enquiring the whereabouts of a young model Arjun Roy, played by actor Ayushman Mitra, who is missing since past one month and was last seen entering Ahalya’s House. Since it is a suspense thriller, I cannot reveal much about the plot. You will have to watch the film for knowing further.
Opinion = It is regarded as the best suspense thriller produced in recent times. The movie is extremely popular online and has garnered 7 million views till date. The suspense of the film will give you goosebumps. But, before watching this movie, I would suggest you to read some material on the confrontation of Lord Indra and Ahalya in Ramayana, which will help you in understanding the climax of the film.
Performances = Actress Radhika Apte has secured brownie points for her acting, hands down. Being a maharashtrian, she has made a Bengali character extremely believable. With her performance, she has proved that why she is considered the ultimate seductress of bollywood. Soumitra Chatterjee and Tota Roy Choudhury are considered legendary actors in the Bengali Movies Industry. They have displayed their finesse through their performances.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = Director Sujoy Ghosh has kept the audience engrossed in the proceedings throughout. You cannot predict the suspense till the very end. The production design, background score and the VFX are as per the requirement of the script.
