Movie Review - MOM

 Image result

The role of a mother has always been quintessential in real life and it is reflected to be so in the movies too. There have been many films which have been made that portray strong character of the mother, the all time classic being MOTHER INDIA. This week’s release titled MOM starring Sridevi also shows the power of a mother. Will MOM be able to prove itself to be the ‘mother’ of all the films in Bollywood or will it bite the dust, let’s analyze.
It’s always said that ‘Since God cannot be everywhere, He created Mother’. MOM is a heart wrenching story, which mirrors the power of a mother in lieu of the aforementioned adage. The film starts off with school teacher Devki (Sridevi) punishing one of her students in school named Mohit for sending a lewd message to her daughter Arya (Sajal Ali), who also studies in the same class. Despite Sridevi’s love and affection towards Arya, Arya can’t get over the fact that she is her step-mom. There’s a constant brewing tension between them. One night, when Arya goes for a Valentine’s day party with her friends at a far off cottage, Mohit and his accomplices seize the opportunity to get even with her and land up brutally raping her and dumping her in a gutter. What happens after that are a series of court sessions, which ultimately end up declaring the ‘powerful’ Mohit and his partners as innocent and they walk away scot-free. Seeing justice slipping out of her hands, Devki approaches a small time detective Dayashankar Kapoor aka DK (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) to help her. Just as Devki starts ‘punishing’ the culprits, she comes under the radar of the razor sharp police officer Mathew Francis (Akshaye Khanna). What is the reason for Arya to hate Devki so much, does Devki succeed in her plan of exposing the culprits or does she get caught by Inspector Mathew Francis while doing so, what happens of the culprits ultimately and does Arya finally get justice, is what forms the rest of the story.

Jolly LLB 2 - Movie Review

Jolly LLB 2 Poster 

JOLLY LLB 2 is a satirical courtroom drama that comments on the legal system as a whole and the effect that the judicial system has on the common man. The film starts off with the ‘two-wheeler’ entry of Jagadishwar Mishra aka ‘Jolly’, the very man who becomes instrumental in the mass-copying of the school children’s English exams. So much confidence Jolly has in his English, that he claims that even ‘Obama’s mother cannot fail any student’ this time. Amidst all this, Jolly, who works as an assistant to the extremely renowned lawyer Rizvi saab, keeps on dreaming about breaking free from the ‘clutches’ of his boss and go independent. In an attempt to realise his dream, Jolly lands up cheating a helpless and pregnant Hina Siddiqui (Sayani Gupta), whose husband was killed in a fake encounter. When Hina realizes that she had got cheated by Jolly, she commits suicide. The news of Hina’s suicide disturbs Jolly immensely that he starts getting nigtmares about her. As repentance, Jolly decides to take up the case for which Hina had given up her life. No sooner Jolly decides to take up the case, he is faced with strong opposition in the form of the superlatively experienced and ‘street smart’ Pramod Mathur (Annu Kapoor), who represents the case on behalf of his client, the accused Inspector Suryaveer Singh (Kumud Mishra). The man in charge of delivering the judgment is the Bollywood-loving Justice Sunderlal Tripathi (Saurabh Shukla), who, despite his frail heart condition, is torn between his duties as a judge and as a father of a to-be-married daughter. When the world turns totally against Jolly, the one person who stands by him is his wife Pushpa Pandey (Huma Qureshi). Will the rock solid support from his wife help Jolly win the case against the humongous system which relies on power and politics, does Jolly single handedly manage to win the case of the late Hina Siddiqui and deliver justice to her family or does Jolly succumb to the hands of the big daddies, is what forms the rest of the film. - See more at: http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/movie/jolly-llb-2/critic-review/#sthash.QiBkz8aQ.dpuf

Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly (Akshay Kumar) is a struggling lawyer who makes his living assisting a big time Lucknow lawyer and also by taking up small cases individually.
His wife, Pushpa (Huma Qureshi) on the other hand, enjoys her drink but is immesely supportive of her husband.
After accidentally messing up with Hina’s (Sayani Gupta) case, Jolly’s conscience takes a beating and he decides to bring her justice.
He is set to fight against established lawyer, Mathur (Annu Kapoor) while Sundar Lal Tripathi (Saurabh Shukla) is the judge in charge.
A complicated case that revolves around terrorism, corruption and fake encounters becomes a tough affair for Jolly.
Subhash Kapoor had taken us by surprise with Jolly LLB. While the first film got immense appreciation, the expectations from this one were sky high.
The sequel promises to be fun affair that gets serious at the right junctures. Dealing with a plot that revolves around terrorism and corruption, there is much fodder for the makers to latch on to for entertainment.
Dialogues are quirky and towards the second half, they even become emotionally hard hitting.
Courtroom scenes are well written, except I found, the whole Manish Malhotra lehenga for the judges daughter part slightly unnecessary.
Also, the transition from Jolly’s small time cases to handling a biggie here is not shown in details. His preparation is kept aside, we seem him romancing to Baawra Mann instead.
The portrayal of Indian judiciary and mainly how things progress in lower courts is quite rightly done here.
Kapoor’s sharp dialogue towards the end on the statistics of pending cases and lawyers in India is appalling.
Kapoor once again succeeds in making a film that hits the right notes with a mix of light moments and hard hitting realism.
Jolly LLB 2 is entertaining as well as hard hitting. Saurabh Shukla is a stunner while Akshay is once again at his best.

Movie Reviews - Kaabil & Raees

Kaabil Poster 
In Kaabil, Hrithik plays Rohan Bhatnagar – a visually impaired guy who doesn’t let his shortcoming become his identity. He decides to marry Supriya (Yami Gautam) who too is blind and they both dream of buying the ideal house and living a normal life. Things turn bad when a local politician Madhav Shelar (Ronit Roy) and his brother cast their evil eyes on Rohan and Supriya’s love story. From this point onwards, Kaabil becomes a revenge drama, one man’s fight to dish out his own justice to those who did wrong to his loved one.
Kaabil is Hrithik Roshan‘s career best performance. Watch and marvel at what can easily be termed as the finest performance to come out of Bollywood in a long time.

Image result for raees review 
Raees Alam (Shah Rukh Khan) is an Arun Gawli-like criminal and bootlegger based in Fatehpur, Gujarat. From childhood itself, he had a knack for illegal liquor business, and when he grows up, his love for Dhanda gets him into crossroads, first with his mentor (Atul Kulkarni), and later with ACP Majmudar (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). With his best friend and confidante (Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub) and his lover and later wife (Mahira Khan) by his side, Raees sets along to build his empire in Fatehpur. But as the history of civilisations goes, empires get built and fall, sometimes within a day. 
As a movie, Raees is definitely a letdown especially for those who expect a Deewar-like dhamakedaar masala movie. Fans of Shah Rukh Khan might give the movie its huge initial but don’t expect the road ahead to be a smooth ride. And warning for all superstars – acting with Nawazuddin Siddiqui is injurious to your own dramatic talents – he can steal your glory right from under your nose.
