Good Newwz (2019)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

VERDICT – 3/5

 

 
PROS –
1) Kareena Kapoor’s monologue. There is a reason why she’s the uncrowned queen of Bollywood.
2) Straight forward screenplay without any annoying sub-plots.

 

 
CONS –
1) 90% of the plot already revealed in the trailer.
2) Another lazy soundtrack full of recycled songs. However, it was good to see Sukhbir in “Sauda Khara Khara”.

The Tashkent Files (2019)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 0
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) Very informative & an absolute eye-opener revealing hidden facts on Shastri’s death. The death of a PM certainly needs a widespread discussion even with conspiracy theories.
2) HJ Bhabha death, The Mitrokhin Archive, etc are some of the most noteworthy points of the movie which cannot be undermined.

 

CONS –
1) Even with a talented pool of actors, there is less acting and more over-acting.
2) The primary structure is clearly copied from 12 Angry Men (1957)
3) Forgettable soundtrack.
