Mohalla Assi (2015)

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

 

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) Chandra Prakash Dwivedi is not just another director. The guy clearly did a lot of homework before making this socio-political satire on one of the oldest city of the world.
2) The razor-sharp dialogues will equally offend and please the Hindu community.
3) The character of Gaya Singh was clearly speaking from the directors POV and sparing no one.
4) Sunny Deol convincingly played an unconventional character.

 
CONS –
N/A

Dangal (2016)

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

Verdict – 5/5

 

PROS –
1) Better first half: A father fighting social dogma & prejudices
2) Aamir’s transform is no less than Raging Bull. Probably one of the best sports movie in Bollywood along with Chak De India.
3) Excellent supporting cast
4) Opening credit with the title song.

 

CONS –
1) The second half is predictable with a made-up villain for the sake of story-telling.
