Dostana: is a laugh riot

Set in Miami, the film revolves around a male nurse, Sameer (Abhishek) and a hotshot photographer, Kunal (John Abraham). Both are on the look out for an apartment and coincidentally end up landing at the same house at the same time. But the landlady refuses to take two hot macho men into her home that also houses her young niece, Neha (Priyanka Chopra). To not let of the opportunity they pretend to be gay.

After Neha moves in, very soon the trio gets friendly and inseparable. According to Neha, she becomes one of the boys and the boys, as she says, are one of the girls! And just when you think this is one happy and gay friendship in comes the twist and turns. Both the guys realize that they have feelings for Neha and each of them wants her to himself. Both of them then try to outdo and outwit one another ending into a big fight. But ironically, Neha takes the fight as a lovers’ tiff! Now just when the two are about to reveal the truth, in walks Abhimanyu (Bobby) Neha’s new boss. He starts showing extra affection for her and she too starts reciprocating. This comes as threat for the two lover boys. They then hatch a plan to get rid of Abhimanyu by resorting to all sorts of pranks to get rid of from Neha’s life by hook or by crook. Their plans succeed to some extent but they end up losing her in this bargain. How they win her back forms the rest of the film.

Coming from Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Tarun Mansukhani’s directorial debut is a good mixture of Karan Johar’s stamp of glossy class and a new age director’s hatke treatment. Technically the film definitely stands amongst one of 2008’s best. The screenplay is truly innovative coupled with some great one-liners. There is not a single dull moment throughout the film as it keeps you in splits always. The scenes involving Boman Irani (in a gay role) are a laugh riot. So also are the scenes between Abhi-John and Abhi’s mom played by Kirron Kher.

Vishal-Shekhar’s music is already topping the charts and the picturisation of songs take it one notch higher. The opening track shot on Shilpa Shetty at the beautiful sun kissed Miami bitches provides great eye candy.

Abhishek in first out and out comedy role is brilliant. His self deprecating humor style has turned out very good. John who has never looked so hot before also shows great comic timing. Priyanka apart looking extremely gorgeous throughout does a nice job. Bobby underplays his part well. Kirron Kher is now type cast as the loud Punjabi mom. She does the same old routine that she been doing in such roles. Boman is fun to watch. Sushmita Mukherjee as Priyanka’s aunt appears wasted.

raaz2Movie Review: Raaz 2; Star Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Kangana Ranaut and Adhyayan Suman; Director: Mohit Suri; Rating: ***1/2 – Succeeds in spooking you.

Yash (Adhyayan) and Nandita (Kangana) is a couple deeply in love. While Yash is heads a successful reality show on TV called Andhavishwas which exposes superstitious beliefs in India, Nandita is a successful model. One evening Nandita realizes that a stranger (Emraan) is following her. The stranger then manages to encounter her in her building lift. He introduces himself as Prithvi and shows her the paintings he has drawn of her. What has him intrigued is that though he had never seen her before, he has drawn her many portraits including one which shows her lying in a pool of blood. He tries to caution her about something evil about to happen to her soon but she ignores him. But from then on, strange things start happening her as if she has been possessed by an evil spirit. What twists and turns follow next form the rest of the film.

Full marks to Mohit Suri for making that one kick-ass horror thriller which can easily put on par with Hollywood’s best in terms of plot, setting, technique and acting. Though the initial few minutes appear dragging with a slow pace, the film takes your grip, once Kangana gets possessed. There are sufficient twists and turns plotted at just the right juncture to give you shocks. The suspense too is well maintained right till the climax. Generally Bollywood horror films tend to have lengthy and at times unconvincing flashbacks to support the happenings but thankfully in here the flashback is not only slickly shot but is also right in length and very convincing. The camerawork by Ravi Walia deserves special mention especially for night shots which are aplenty in the film. He has succeeded in creating the right eerie atmosphere. The song are well placed too and thankfully few.

Mohit has gone right in the casting as well. Emraan is just perfect for the part and his expressions speak a lot. It is not the same Emraan you have been seeing till now. Kangana enacts her part well and succeeds in getting your sympathy. Adhyayan shows remarkable improvement as an actor from his debut film.

delhi6-2091Movie Review: Delhi 6; Star Cast: Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Om Puri and Waheeda Rehman; Director: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra; Rating: *** – Is worth a watch.

Delhi 6 is a delightful musical run through the Hindu and Muslim cultures of Old Delhi as seen through the eyes of protagonist Roshan (Abhishek Bachchan) who comes to India to fulfill the desire of his terminally ill Daadi (Waheeda Rehman) to spend the last days of her life in her hometown. As Roshan after a brief culture shock, tries to understand the complexities of relations that kept his people apart from each other as well as close to each other, he slowly gets attached to Bittu (Sonam Kapoor) and the chemistry grows, which is very convincingly directed using rich background music and believable day-to-day situations.

The first half, though appearing a little lengthy focuses on reverse-culture-shock jokes, lavishly reproduced Ram Leela, a visit to the Taj Mahal, and a cow giving birth in the street. It is in the second half that things take a more serious turn. Unwelcome traditions and smoldering religious hatred comes bubbling to the surface and erupt into a Do the Right Thing climax that takes everyone by surprise. Several characters and subplots weaved together to relate to the central plot of analyzing beliefs against rational thinking, with a touch of humor is quite entertaining but one has to endure the laborious and forced accent of Abhishek Bachchan throughout the movie. Although at several places, the movie seems predictable, Mehra succeeds in putting surprises well in time and balance. The climax gets dragged due to cameos and voiceovers. Although Roshan’s attempts to put belief and trust in people ahead of belief in customs and religion deserve a pat, what disappoints is Mehra getting preachy at many places. Rahman’s soulful music takes the film to a completely different level altogether.

Mehra and his cameraman Binod Pradhan have succeeded in capturing the buzz of Delhi city very well in every frame. Those living outside of India will find that connect with that feeling of wanting to be in both places. The song in the second half which juxtaposes Abhishek’s life in the US with the people and life in India is beautifully done as well. Hat’s off to the director and technical team there.

Abhishek has delivered one of his better performances but his American accent doesn’t really work. Sonam Kapoor doesn’t have much to do but except for the climax but she carries herself immensely well. Waheeda Rehman, Om Puri and Rishi Kapoor are simply outstanding. The huge ensemble cast comprising of acclaimed actors such as Raghubir Yadav, Pavan Malhotra, Supriya Pathak Shah, Deepak Dobriyal, Divya Dutta, Vijay Raaz, Tanvi Azmi and Atul Kulkarni do a wonderful job.
