VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) Manu Rishi’s final monologue. He did most of the heavy lifting in this movie. His bickering arguments with Gajraj Rao are the highlights of the movie.
2) Kya Karthe The Saajna remix.

 
CONS –
1) Ayushmann Khurrana role was poorly written. He was completely out of his element.
2) Tanishk Bagchi is a curse on this generation. He’ll end up ruining the entire Bollywood catalog of classic songs.
3) You just can’t make an entertaining movie only because of good actors.

VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) Most commercially viable time for a project like Batla House Encounter when the entire nation is drenched in nationalist fervor.

 

CONS –
1) Absent supporting cast. Apart from Ravi Kishan, hardly any actor is well known.
2) “O Saki Saki” remix can only get cheap views on YouTube, otherwise the entire soundtrack is garbage. Background score is mainly ripping off Hans Zimmer from The Dark Knight (2008)

VERDICT – 1/5

 

 
PROS –
1) Satish Kaushik and Aasif Sheikh brought some fun with their character.

 

 

CONS –
1) Salman Khan tried the bollywoodization of Ode to My Father (2014) but ended up ruining it. He tried amalgamating Forrest Gump (1994) with the Korean movie.
2) The most important strength of Ode to My Father (2014) is its emotional quotient. Ali Abbas Zafar ravaged it by inserting random item numbers and tediously unfunny sub-plots.
3) Forgettable soundtrack.
