VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) One time watch small-town comedy.

 
CONS –
1) New age Bollywood is clearly scraping the bottom of the barrel for small-town stories.

3) The movie ruined the original Laung Laachi song thanks to Tulsi Kumar.

Stree (2018)

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

 

VERDICT – 4/5

 

PROS –
1) Spooky and funny. Possibly one of the best Bollywood movie of this genre. Great debut for Amar Kaushik.
2) Supporting cast: Pankaj Tripathi as Rudra got the best lines, and Vijay Raaz cameo was spot-on.
3) Shraddha Kapoor as the unnamed femme fatale. The final plot-twist involving her was remarkable.

 
CONS –
1) The soundtrack is forgettable but who cares. The songs and dances are added just to promote the movie as a regular Bollywood movie.

Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017)

CULT – 0

 

Verdict – 1/5

 

 

Pros –

 

1) Rajkumar Rao as Vidrohi – the only character with substance
2) There is a Karan Johar Universe of Kapoors, Singhanias and Malhotras. The neo-bollywood carved a market for Mishras, Trivedis and Dubeys thanks to the mega success of Tanu Weds Manu. This movie is part of the same vaudeville.

 

 

Cons –

 

1) Primary weak plot
2) Forgettable soundtrack
