Angrezi Medium (2020)

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

 

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
N/A

 

CONS –
1) A good story but terrible execution. Comedy is not Homi Adajania’s cup of tea.
2) Miscasting of good actors in half-baked roles. There are hardly good comedy scenes even with an ensemble of actors like Pankaj Tripathi, Ranvir Shorey, and Manu Rishi.
3) The Rajasthani language spoken terribly by lead characters is another weak-link in this movie.

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”.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015)

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

 

VERDICT – 5/5

 

 

PROS –
1) Not the typical Salman “no-brainer”; an emotional roller-coaster. It’s surely annoying at times but it’s the best Salman Khan movie since Dabangg (2010).
2) Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Chand Nawab and Om Puri’s effective cameo compensates for the bad performances from the main cast.
3) Bhar Do Jholi Meri – Qawwali

 

 

CONS –
1) Salman & Kareena are visibly old for the roles they are playing.
2) Thanks to so many bad movie coming these day, our standard for a Bollywood movie has gone down to another level. Even with sloppy direction with predictable and cliched twists, the movie looks tolerable.
