Movie Review: Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

We really enjoyed laughing at this movie despite the R rated jokes and bleeps. Its a bro movie about two guys who are friends since childhood and the girl who gets engaged to one and almost kills the friendship. With a lot of situational comic gimmicks  and fine cast it is easily one of best bollywood comedies in some time.

Some things which almost derail the movie are a misogynistic plot with bros before #hos as the theme.

After a lazy cold winter in which I suffered from cervical /neck pain thanks to soccer adventures in twenties, I return with some light hearted movie reviews

  1. Rogue One- The movie was great and it was how the rebel alliance got the blueprint to the death star in the first place- think of it as the movie between Return of the Sith and before A New Hope. Yes well done movie, and alas, goodbye Princess Leia in her final appearance. Suicide missions seem so heroic if performed in the Western Cinema and horrifying when in East.rogue-one-jyn-ersa-geared-up
  2. Dangaal- Aamir khan returns as producer/ director on a true inspired tale of a retired wrestler battling patriarchal society misogny (India in Haryana) to train his two daughters to medal winning heights. Inspiring and like all sports movies cliched like Rocky. dangale
  3. Kaabil- Blind man plots revenge after rape- suicide of his blind wife. Bollywood’s most handsome hero returns to act in his prdoucer dad’s movie and delivers an excellent gem. Justice is blind and revenge is sweet if done to the bad guys.maxresdefault

Movie Review- Suicide Squad

Ok Rotten Tomatoes, lets call you Rotten Potatoes from now on.

I am serious here. The movie is not avant garde Golden age of Comics noire. It is okay. But it does a good job of balancing Cara Delivigne’s acting with budgetary constraints in putting Wild Wild West Smith in the movie.  Yes the casting, the plot, the soundtrack and the pop art imagery is okay. Its not worthy of a Weinstein Oscar. But its not worthy of a Razzie.  The soundtrack is from the 80’s when the music was cool and the planet was cool too thanks to lack of climate warming

But enough politics in my review. Why did terrorism crop up in this movie. The best stories are ones that are credible as they borrow from reality. That is something you will see you will see on your own.

Its not a time pass movie as we say in India. Paisa wasool (or you got your money worth back)

Big Will Smith is the divorced man with a paternity case. Harley Quinn is awwwesome with Margot Robbie. I really think the Joker had potential but they must be saving it for Joker vs Batman next movie. Dang- I am addicted to these movies now. These Americans just want us to make money and spend it on popcorn and cola. No wonder China wont allow this movie. The rest of the cast is nice. I like Katana the best.

Nowwww I understand why Microsoft OS has so many sequels



Movie Review: Sultan

I had just come back after 5 months in the land of the brave and free (  Trumpistan ) so it was my first Bollywood movie in some time and Salman Khan did not disappoint in his annual Id outing. Sultan followed a wrestler who became a wrestler to impress a girl, and then gets separated post losing the girl. Fairly standard sports movie fare of rise, fall and rise again, though with a great Indian twist and I really think they could make Sultan 2.The heroine should be Rhonda Rousy in that one though. Anushka is not credible enough as a skinny wrestling prodigy, though Salman easily does the best acting of his career (minus the dancing)

The songs were ok ok, though the dialogues were amazing. Bhai rocks
