Bharat (2019)

CULT – 0

 

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 periodical item numbers and tedious sub-plots.
3) Forgettable soundtrack.

Sultan (2016)

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

Verdict – 1/5

 

PROS –
1) “Jag Ghoomeya” song

 

CONS –
1) Average Bollywood potboiler. It’s not Chak de! India (2007)
2) “Rocky” & “Cinderella Man” meets “Never Back Down”.
3) Lack of good supporting cast. Now, this seems to be a serious issue with Bollywood these days. Average actors playing major characters roles and failing hard.
4) Though it’s a sports film, romance is a major angle but it is not at all convincing & passionate as it is supposed to be (like Ghajini (2008). No chemistry between Salman & Anushka
5) If you have seen the trailer, nothing else to watch.
