Bollywood film review – UGLY Rating – 3.5

Standard

ugly1

A must watch if you wanna b thrilled!

WHAT’S IT ABOUT:

Ugly movie is a dark psychological thriller on the surface, and is an emotional drama within.

Bose, an extremely straight-forward person is an Additional Commissioner of Police. It is only in his private life that these lines get blurred, especially with the way he treats his wife Shalini. Shalini is a clinically depressed person and an alcoholic. Bose is Shalini’s second husband.

Shalini was first married to Rahul and also has a daughter with him, (Kali). Rahul is a struggling actor who is still looking for his big break. Our story starts on a Saturday which is the day Rahul is allowed to meet Kali as per court custody arrangements.

Rahul picks up his daughter and takes her to his friend Chaitanya’s house in order to collect a casting script from him. Kali is very upset with him for sidelining her again and refuses to get out of the car. Rahul eventually leaves her in the car, from where she goes missing.

What follows is an endless series of blame game and one up-manship. The film follows a journey where it is difficult to judge who is real and who is fake. In their process of humiliating one and another the characters go through a series of events which not only shows the degradation of their personal lives but also shows how truly self-involved they are.

ACTING:

All actors have lived up to the expectations. Ronit Roy, Rahul Bhatt, Tejaswini, Vineet are just amazing. Surveen Chawla has an important role but her scenes are subdued.

DIRECTION & STORY:

Anurag Kashyap has as usual done a fantastic job. The script unfurls minute details and retains the audience’s imagination. The shot taking is mind-blowing. Scenes involving the dealings with the police officers are true to life and interesting. The end is subtle and you may just miss the message.

A special mention to Mukesh Chhabra for some exemplary casting of the subordinate actors. Each actor has been well placed.

What better way to bring in the holiday season than an evening of fine wine and conversation? Pause Wines, the niche and premium Indian wine maker, hosted an elegant evening at Hotel Ramee Guestline in Juhu to welcome the festive season with its classic range of wines. Wine experts, influencers and wine enthusiasts came together to enjoy Pause wines’ exquisite range. Actors Shreyas Talpade and Aniket Vishwasrao graced the occasion to make the merriment even livelier, while wine sommelier Ajit Balgi enlightened everybody on the intricacies of wine drinking and food pairing. The audience also participated in a wine cocktail making competition, where they enjoyed some unique concoctions through the evening.

The evening was held to make wine lovers experience different type of wines by Pause. Managing Director of Pause Wines, Mr. Rajesh Patil marked the beginning of the evening by opening a bottle of Shiraz in the presence of film stars Shreyas Talpade and Aniket Vishwasrao and raising a toast to good times along with the guests at the event. As wine glasses clang together, ‘cheers’ unanimously echoed all across the venue.

The evening witnessed a fascinating talk by Ajit Balgi, one of the leading wine professionals, on how to pair wine with Indian cuisine. While most people associate wine with European cuisines, Balgi stressed how wine can be enjoyed in harmony with the Indian spices and flavours as well. By now the guests were in a celebration mode and gelled over a round of cocktails and a wine cooler competition.

Through the evening, the attendees swirled and sipped through the enviable portfolio of Pause Wines. This included reds like Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot and its award winning Shiraz, whites like Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc, as well as a Rosé – Pause Ruby Red, all which are currently available in Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka.

As part of the evening, Mr. Patil announced how the company aims to expand to other territories like Delhi, Rajasthan, UP, Chandigarh, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh by next year, and how a sparkling wine offering is underway as well. Another exciting announcement made by Mr. Patil was that the Pause vineyards would soon be open for wine tours. Spread over 100 acres of rich farmland near Dindori, Nashik, it has a 60,000 litres production capacity with a state-of-the-art processing setup imported from Italy and exemplary in-house Vignerons and Sommeliers on hand.

Talking about the growing wine culture in India, Mr. Rajesh Patil, Managing Director, Pause Wines, said, “While wine is increasingly becoming popular, it is yet to become an integral part of Indian people’s regular lives. While countries like France have a consumption of 3-5 litres per person, India stands at a mere 0.2 mm per person. However, the aspirational middle class are setting in motion a routine shift in wine consumption ratio and drinking habits. Pause Wines aims to propel that growing trend of acceptance, and make it more accessible to the diverse populations of India. With the industry all set for an upswing in 2015, we are all set to give Indian wine enthusiasts an authentic taste and world-class experience of wine.”

Bollywood film review- Badlapur Boys Rating: 3

Standard

By ARYEMAN RAJ

Finally, Kabaddi gets it due.

badlapur_boys_1413529183

What it’s all about?

Badlapur Boys deals with a plot of social family romantic drama with sports as a backdrop and the lead hero Nishan states it’s a very simple film and people who have dreams of being successful will surely connect with the subject.

Story & Screenplay

The first half of the film is more like a Bhojpuri film since it is set in a rural backdrop. The character built-up is smooth, however the songs used to involve the romantic angle slacken the pace.

The second half is a thrilling one with some good kabaddi scenes. The director Shailesh Verma has effectively underplayed the scenes. Emotional scenes are well tackled with a decent background score. The pathos of the emotions is on a high note which goes well with the story.

Music

The background songs some of which are composed by music director Sachin Gupta are pulsating. Unfortunately they are lost in the background.

Acting

Main lead Nishshan suits and ably portrays his character as a village boy who fulfils his father’s dream. Kishori Shahane as his mother stands out in her performances. Aman Verma has a miniscule role and fails to impress. The shinning stars of the film are Annu Kapoor who plays the earnest sports coach who is idealistic and supports the ever-losing team. His dialogues are mild but yet very effective.

The scene stealer is Varun Kashyap who play Captain Dinesh of the Railways team. There is some psychotic appeal this actor has. The effective manner in which he portrays his role is clear indication that he will go a long way.

Box-office verdict

The film will have an average opening and may pick up with word of mouth. Glorifying Kabaddi with an effective message film should be promoted and given a chance to prove that content can help a film to succeed.
