The Hitman’s Bodyguard

I gave this movie a 5/10.

Samuel Jackson is hilarious. Honestly, if you watch this movie, just watch it for him, his timing, expressions, everything is amazing. He is the star of this movie. Elodie Yung is cool as an Interpol agent, not as cold as we expect agents to be but she plays the part ohkay. Salma Hayek is a surprising delight to watch, she is bad ass and awesome. Ryan and Samuel have great chemistry and it is fun to watch them have it out.

It’s a senseless comedy which does make you laugh in some scenes, The background score and music selection is amazing. this movie does entertain you.  The premise itself is quite interesting with a hitman getting a bodyguard. A lot of the computer assisted scenes are very apparent and that takes away the quality of the movie.

The movie is funny in a mindless kind of way.

Jab Harry met Sejal

I give this movie 2.5/10.

It starts funny but by the time it ends, either you have an obligation to sit through the movie or you are already out of the theatre.

A still from Jab Harry Met Sejal.

I found the beginning to be funny, Anushka Sharma is amazing in the movie but it is cringeworthy to see her romancing Shahrukh Khan, I just did not see them as a couple in this movie, post interval you can barely tolerate it, there is unnecessary drama, a movie that could have easily ended in 90 minutes is dragged and dragged.

Imtiaz Ali, is he really the director who gave us Jab we met and rock star? he seems to have lost his path or his art because this in no way feels like the fun meaningful movies he makes.

Anushka Sharma is amazing in JHMS, her acting skill is what keeps this movie bearable, she has nailed the Gujarati accent, she is funny and gorgeous,she is the star of this movie, her character, Sejal is hilarious in the beginning, she sticks to her character so perfectly, you would believe sejal is her by the end of the movie.Sejal is a fun character, strong but difficult to identify with.

Shahrukh has acted well I believe, he is, after all, an amazing actor, but their pairing is weird, not even considering the age gap, the romance felt forced.

There were some scenes that were unexpected, but the climax was predictable and it is too long, they dragged it for no reason to add emotional drama which you don’t feel at all while watching, you just want the movie to end.There are too many songs in the movie and although they have shot at so many locations, I wish there could have been better cinematography to show more of these gorgeous cities.

the beginning of the movie is quite funny, their banter and interactions are hilarious, but 20 minutes into the movie and you stop understanding whats going on, why is Sejal acting a certain way, everything in the movie stops making sense.The story of the movie is pretty stupid, Sejal and Harry’s romance seems forced, why could it not have been about friendship? why could they have not been friends instead? or the movie could have been better understood by me if there was a younger actor playing Harry. I just do not see SRK as a romantic actor anymore, it’s really not worth watching.

Mom – movie review

I rated it an 8 on 10.

Sridevi has acted amazingly as devki in this movie. She has a brilliant screen presence, her character is inspiring, full of love, positive and a bad ass. she is so intelligent and Sridevi has portrayed it to the T. Sridevi is one of the most brilliant actresses Bollywood has ever seen.

 

Sridevi’s movies are always worth watching and strike a cord with me. She brings a new character, a new characteristic I should say to every movie and it makes us think, makes us notice.Nawazuddin Siddique plays a different character with a unique look. his character again is someone you like, his acting is spot on, this movie is really enjoyable and worth watching.

Akshay Khanna plays a cop and fits the role perfectly. It was nice to watch him after quite a while.

The movie is unexpected in a lot of ways and keeps surprising you. The movie, however, was a little slow at times. The story had certain gaps in it which come to light when you watch it.

In the end however, it is a movie everyone should watch, the actors are brilliant and so is the concept.

 

 

 

moonlight in vermont – hallmark movie

I give this movie an 8/10.

Moonlight in Vermont has an interesting story which has been well written.The movie is funny and entertaining at all times. Not once did I want to pry my eyes away from the sizzling couple that Lacey and Carlos portray.

Lacey Chabert plays Fiona who is a super busy caught up in the urban life real estate agent, she brings a spark to every character she plays, and it was a delight to watch her.
Carlo Marks plays Derek,he is cute and super charming to watch, and he and Lacey have great chemistry.They look really cute together.I hope they do more movies in the future together. Their banter is enjoyable.
Elise Gatien plays Hayley and is cute and chirpy in her character.She has a tiny role, but she does not go unnoticed.Fiona broom and Jason Cermak play Angela and Brandon ,it was nice to see their love story progressing in the background.

Timothy Webber plays Chauncey and he has done a remarkable job.

The setting of the inn is beautiful. The soundtrack of this movie is fun. its really well directed. the whole team has done an incredible job.

Offlate, I had been disliking almost every hallmark movie being dished out, but this was a Lacey Chabert movie, gotta watch and how glad am I that I did,

1 Mile to you – movie

This movie is an easy 8.5/10. Its excellent.

The background score is soothing and amazing.The music team has done a great job. The soundtrack of this movie is really cool, all the songs lovely to hear.1 mile to you’s script has been written very well, you enjoy the movie throughout. the scenes are well shot, all the actors have done  agreat job. The concept is unique and interesting, the movie is executed really well.The climax, the ending, all of it is great.  This movie has been adapted from a novel.

Graham rogers plays Kevin and has done an incredible job. He is so believable and excellent.Stefanie scott plays ellie and is cute and again talented. graham and stefanie have really good chemistry and are really cute together.Billy crudup plays his eccentric character quite well, he always makes his characters himself.Liana Liberato plays Henny, she is cute, i have always loved her, it was a surprise seeing her in this movie, but as always she is amazing in her role.

This is one movie you should totally watch. Its really good.

Love at First bark – hallmark movie

My score is a 2/10.

The movie progresses real slow. From the beginning itself, it does not pique my interest. I feel the movie has no real story, a new dog owner falling for the dog trainer, boring old concept. With an interesting script, it could have been entertaining but it was not.

Jana Kramer and Kevin Mcgarry star in this movie. They have both played their characters well but have no chemistry. Their interactions have no sass or fun or entertainment even.

Its quite a boring movie. Hallmark movies off late have been losing their touch. Up until a couple of years ago, the quality of hallmark movies was much better, they were worth watching and now they are just what you would play in the background while you are busy with something else.

Naam Shabana – Movie

I would give it a 7/10.

I really liked the movie except for the songs and some parts after the intermission.The story progresses well but is slow after the intermission until the climax.It keeps us involved mostly during the missions.The dialogues and portrayal seem very honest, it feels extremely real, its a well-crafted a movie.The background score brings back memories of Baby. The action scenes are well executed.

Tapsee Pannu has acted very well.She maintained a poker face throughout, she was emotional when necessary and badass during others.She really is a good actress.
The rest of the supporting cast has done an amazing job.
Neeraj Pandey has directed and written it really well. He makes good movies. His dialogues are on point, sassy, funny, thrilling, everything.
Manoj Bajpayee has played his character well, albeit his character is creepy.
Akshay kumar is a delight to watch. He truly is awesome.
anupam kher was totally cheered, and we wished he had more screen time.
I hope there is a sequel to Baby with this team.

The first song is nice to hear , refreshing but then they kept the songs coming, they were unnecessary and took the focus away from an action suspense movie. A lot of drama around the agency seemed shady.The movie is somewhat slow after the intermission but picks it up again during the climax. It is basically, literally all about how agent shabana came into being. The vision is clear and well presented.

Its a nice prequel, Baby lovers will surely enjoy it, but not something you love and watch again n again.

Murder she baked just desserts-hallmark movie

I would give it a 5.5/10.

we dive into the mystery from the get go.The background music is good.It starts as an interesting movie, building up and keeping us guessing but then it becomes like the usual hallmark murder mysteries and bam we have the killer and this one did not touch me emotionally at all.

I lost all interest when the murder investigation started.The cat’s name was weird.

 

Phillauri – Movie

My rating – 8.5/10.

A good movie after so long.I really liked the concept of the film, its different and hilarious.Its a funny movie.The music and background score is good, not cringeworthy at all. Sahiba is a really good song.The poems esp the Mohabbat one leaves the theater with you.

Anshai Lal has directed the movie really well. Suraj Sharma plays Kanan, he is the only thing bad about this movie. He cannot act, his acting and performance are annoying.

Mehreen pirzada plays anu. She is pretty.Suraj and mehreen have no chemistry.

Anushka Sharma plays shashi.She shines through this movie just like her ghost.her performance is great, and she looks gorgeous, innocent and dignified. Diljit Dosanjh plays Phillauri.Diljit is handsome and acts wow.His and Anushka’s scenes are dreamy, their chemistry sizzling.Manav Vij’s performance is commendable as the brother.The supporting cast of biji, parents, friends holds well.

The execution of the movie could have been better.Their story is conveyed, some scenes, we understand what they are trying to portray but not every scene is enjoyable unless it has anushka or diljit.The casting should have been better, suraj sharma is what makes me dislike this movie.

It is fun to watch a past and present reality together. Everything has been conveyed well.It is a beautiful movie, totally worth watching. The new comers do not leave an impression but anushka and diljit are amazing. Anushka’s production house truly makes good worthwhile movies.

Bokeh- Film

A 5.5/10.

Iceland is depicted beautifully in this film.The concept is different.You can basically visit Iceland via this movie.The movie is realistic in some ways and boring in others.

Maika Monroe is pretty and realistic.Matt O’Leary plays his part well. The actors I wish were more dynamic, the movie might have had some life in it then.The film is well executed according to their script I believe.The locations are beautiful and shot amazingly. The background music is so beautiful.The actors have chemistry and act well together.The directors  Geoffrey Orthwein and Andrew Sullivan have written as well as directed it.This being their first movie as directors, they have done a good enough job.

Human race comes to an end in this movie, but it is nothing like other successful apocalyptic movies.It is slow, beautiful but slow and without any answers.sometimes the background score is too loud, and the focus is on the music instead of the dialogues.The film just is not entertaining enough to watch, visually its gorgeous but when it comes to your brain, it shall pretty much snore.

“Bokeh,” means the photographic term for blurry parts of a picture produced by variable lens focus.
