Movie review after a long time..

Oakyyy ! So 2 movie reviews.. One that u all know and one that u dnt(not everyone) i am very very late to review these but anyways ! I have something Hatke to say .

Movie 1: Ek ruka hua faisla

2 hrs , 12 jury members with their own daily problems , 1 room, 1 set , 1 case , many interpretations . Amazingly thought, shot in a single room is an Outstanding remake of “twelve angry men” (a Sydney Lumet’s film ) .An investigative movie by Basu Chatterjee , 1986 . 

A muljim mujrim thing

Its a story about 12 jury members locked up in a room to decide on a murder case . Each one of them is in hurry to bind up the case as the case was very clear to them . But one person stands out and rethinks it . He is the only one who speaks in favour of the accused and slowly and steadily he turns the case topsy turvy . He influences ! No actually proves somehow , to everyone that the muljim is not mujrim and takes everyone on his side .. And rest is kept unsaid

So full of live , U will enter into the story , concentrate, start introspecting , judging , investigating . Hell involving, u wont get up untill the truth seemingly unfolds. 

On one hand it will take u to the serious side of the movie , accused ke liye uski zindagi ka sawaal hai afterall ! And On other u will laugh on the witty dialogues holding ur stomachs.

Few dialogues like Bharat chodo andolan tak agar baat phohoch jae to bata dena , 

2nd inning shuru etc will surely make u giggle , giggle and then laugh ! Haha ! U will understand it when actually u will watch the movie

U will jump onto the conclusion with every new point / evidence but again come back and sit onthe backseat , judging, thinking , rubbing ur head ! 

All the actors including Pankaj Kapoor, Anu Kapoor have done a great job .

The most interesting thing is that the movie is shot in one room , a very conventional type, not at all colorfull , no songs ! Just the story ! And trust me its so damn gripping .. ! U will love it .. Sorry for being one sided . But there is only one bad thing about the movie .. To be critical … Is that its a remake ! Ahh still .. It will give u a totally different experience and u will enjoy it 😊 wont be able to resist. 

2 nd movie : Neerja

Your life should be big not long ! She says ! Neerja is the best example to prove what she said . Saiwyn Quadras 

wrote a great script but Neerja spoke a lot more than the script . A girl who 

Intelligently tackled the passengers in a “out of hands” situation is a real life hero. Its a Story of 23 yr old beautiful air hostess Neerja Bhanot.

Powerful and inspirational story but is tragic as In 1986 she lost her life helping the passengers escape from a hijacked Pan Am flight. The story is already known though .I wont speak much abt Shabana Azmi’s acting … It was amazing as always. Wohooo … Musician Shekhar tried his acting skills in the movie .. Did a Good job . He is relaly cute ! 

Caught up but still free to take her own decisions , a selfless woman -Neerja .

Ram Maghvani did justice to her character. She was brave enough ,didnot turned helpless and performed her duty excellently .Fear n tension in the story will engross u completely.Some scenes will move u to tears. Sonam did justice to Neerja as she stepped into her shoes. 

No showshaa nothing ! A serious and a moving movie. Ending it with pushpa i hate tears will indeed give u a proud feeling and the tears in ur eyes will symbolise the applaud for her brave act. I am happy that such true stories are slowly being acknowledged in the bollywood industry . A salute to neerja !!

And if u have not watched it ! Really ? / okay ! So dont wait . Just go watch it . It will really imprint a good memory in ur mind!


Movie review -Airlift 

I had the enormous pleasure and privilege to watch Airlift. Its reaaaall and not reel ! A documentary-drama based on what happened in August 1990 in Kuwait. I thank Raja Krishna Menon for bringing this infront of us and honouing the efforts of Ranjit Katiyal ,Sanjiv Kohli and Air india (488 saviour flights) .

During the gulf war 1.7 lakh Indians were stucked in Kuwait when the Iraqian army( on orders of Saddam Hussein . Reason: Kuwaitis denied to reduce oil supply ) invaded the region .Menon took us back to that time. Although the chances were that they will die but Cudos they were rescued. It is the biggest civilian evacuation in history .

To acknowledge eveyone who was involved to rescue those Indians was of Paramount importance. Instead of succumbing to the situation they fought with hope. All the rescuers are heroes. True heroes. Akshay Kumar was best suited for this role. The metamorphosis of a man (Ranjit ) from a bad Indian to a self-sacrificing man pulls us in the story and should pull us in real life actually.

The events have already occurred and it was not fiction at all but at its heart it was an engaging story. Few scenes will pull you to the edge. Expect tears when the men finally reach freedom.Goosebumps when Indian tricolour is hoisted over the Jordon airport.Even i had that adrenaline rush inside me when they were to cross the border checkpoint .

There was no shock factor because the events of the story were known .But wait ! Not everybody knew it ! Thats the point. What is our film industry doing or what are the people in power doing ? Why dont they recognise the valour of people who fought for our country? Why are they not remembered for long ? Why is the film industry not fair to the real life heroes? Raja Menon has set a benchmark (&few other directors also ) to bring such a event forward. Truly phenomenal. The movie is away from Bling and decorated cinema.

So now you.Yes you ! Dont be a hermit crab . Go and watch this movie . U will yourself call it worth. 😍👍
