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.

Love Per Square Foot (2018)

MUSIC – 1
CULT – 0

 

Verdict – 3/5

 

PROS –
1) Opening credit rap-song: “Yatri Kripaya Dhyaan De”
2) Anand Tiwari managed a huge ensemble with great efficiency. Most of the cast from the Indian-web-series-circuit marked their presence even with minor roles.
3) Angira Dhar as Karina, Kunaal Roy Kapur, and Raghubir Yadav‘s performance stands-out.
4) That Ranbir Kapoor cameo.

 

 

CONS –
1) Rom-Com with a predictable story with a cliched climax where the bride came to her sense in the wedding aisle

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.

VERDICT – 2/5

3) Piyush Mishra as Storyteller: failed to hit the right cord.
