Verdict – 0/5

 

 
Pros –
1) Sanjay Dutt’s real-life still remains more colorful than this dull movie

 

Cons –
1) Hirani can make Gandhi out of Goebbels. This is white-washing and image makeover of cringeworthy propaganda level.
2) The entire movie insults the intelligence of the audiences in broad-daylight by ridiculously dumbing-down documented history and adding fictional characters in a so-called biopic.
3) Forgettable soundtrack.

Sanjay Dutt: The first time I took drugs, it was because my father didn’t like me. The second time, it was because my mother was dying. The third time, I was an addict.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016)

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

Verdict – 1/5

 

Pros –

 

1) “Channa Mereya” Song
2) SRK delivered the best line in the movie.

 

Cons –

 

1) Worst Karan Johar movie of all time. The guy surely lost his mojo.
2) Shallow character development. Screenplay full of overacting in the first half.
3) Aishwarya Rai’s horrific extended cameo.
4) Generic Ranbir Kapoor plot. Dazed & Confused rich desi lad trying to find solace in music with a past girlfriend & blah..blah…bullshit.
5) The movie died much before “Alizeh” died of cancer.
6) Last minute Lahore to Lucknow editing adds more woes to already irrelevant plot.

Sultan (2016)

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

Verdict – 1/5

 

PROS –
1) “Jag Ghoomeya” song

 

CONS –
1) Average Bollywood potboiler. It’s not Chak de! India (2007)
2) “Rocky” & “Cinderella Man” meets “Never Back Down”.
3) Lack of good supporting cast. Now, this seems to be a serious issue with Bollywood these days. Average actors playing major characters roles and failing hard.
4) Though it’s a sports film, romance is a major angle but it is not at all convincing & passionate as it is supposed to be (like Ghajini (2008). No chemistry between Salman & Anushka
5) If you have seen the trailer, nothing else to watch.

Pros –
1) Ranbir Kapoor’s Cameo

6) If you have seen OMG, this movie got the same message but lesser content.
