Thappad movie review: Taapsee Pannu rebels against a slap that will sting society at large

All's hunky-dory in Amrita (Taapsee Pannu) and Vikram (Pavail Gulati)'s marriage, with the former even happily making peace with embracing her husband's dreams as her own, till the moment her dream-man whacks her across the face, out of the blue.



There have been tons of films that normalize hitting a woman. No, I'm not talking about domestic violence, but what society has been told is acceptable — slapping a woman. Films have mirrored this shameful societal norm, with not only Hindi films being guilty of the dilution. In days gone by, Hollywood legends like John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Humphrey Bogart and others have blithely "tamed the shrew" or so to speak by plastering 5-finger marks across actress' cheeks. Admittedly, this detestable behaviour faded away from western cinema before waning from Indian films, but that has got to do more with an anthropological reflection in our cultures and mindset rather than cinematic callousness. In fact, as recently as last year, a film like Kabir Singh rose to blockbuster success because our society finds a slap in a relationship to be totally acceptable. In such a scenario comes Director Anubhav Sinha and his lead star, Taapsee Pannu, with Thappad, to challenge all cinematic, cultural, societal and patriarchal norms, and they do so with a slap that's likely to reverberate through our collective conscience for ages to come.

Kaamyaab movie review: Sanjay Mishra is brilliant in a touching tribute to Bollywood's character artistes

The script of Kaamyaab by Radhika Anand and direction by Hardi Mehta, along with the dialogues he has penned, are straight out of the top drawer.





There have been quite a few movies both in Hollywood and Indian cinema (including all our industries) and some from European cinema, too, (Oscar-winning French film The Artist) that have been set against the backdrop of what transpires behind the scenes of these glamorous worlds. While Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was the most recent example from the west the best examples of talking about movies within movies in the realm of Hindi cinema have got to be Rangeela and Luck by Chance. That being said, not a single movie from any industry the world over has been dedicated to the character artistes of cinema, the people who operate from the shadows with very little returns to show for their efforts. That has now changed with the release of Kaamyaab, and by jove, we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful film to start the ball rolling.

Scroll below for my full Kaamyaab review...
What's it about
Kaamyaab revolves around character artist Sudheer (the name, too, is a homage to that amazing actor Sudhir, who's all but been forgotten among today's audience), who's long since left the Hindi film industry, till he gets a shot in the arm post an interview, where he's informed that he has featured in no less than 499 films. What follows is his quest to complete his 500th film, a decision that leads to a new set of joys and sorrows, triumphs and heartbreaks and additional strain on his family, all of which both he and those close to him thought he had bid adieu to long ago.

Baaghi 3 movie review: Tiger Shroff is criminally wasted in a poorly scripted and directed film

Leaving aside the brainless plot and ridiculous settings, the worst crime Baaghi 3 commits is to severely under-utilise the ferocity and power of its leading man. None of Tiger Shroff's action scenes pack any thrill, and worse still (barring one in a car dump), they come across as stale and wooden.





Tiger Shroff has become a brand all of his own, and that too, at a pretty early stage of his career. Like or dislike his brand of cinema, let's face facts: The man has made action movies all his own over the past 5-6 years, is loved by the masses and is poised more than anybody else among gen-Y stars to he the next superstar of Bollywood. No other actor has flown the macho flag higher or kept the action genre rolling more than Tiger has after the likes of Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Sunny Deol, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn.
That being said, let's also face some other facts: Tiger cops a lot of flak from critics and the discerning audience primarily because none of his action starrers have really cut across barriers nor have they left a lasting impression like those of the aforementioned superstars had. It's the one thing that has probably been holding him back from expanding his fan-base to the high-end multiplex audience, and, sadly, Baaghi 3 is not going win any favours on that end. In fact, it may do some damage to his already existing fan-following, not to mention the harm that'll be caused to the Baaghi franchise as a whole.

What's it about

Baaghi 3 revolves around two brothers, Vikram (Riteish Deshmukh), the elder sibling, and Ronnie (Tiger Shroff), the younger one — well, it only revolves around Ronnie, but let's amuse ourselves for a bit — with Vikram being the simpleton softie ans his younger brother being his knight in shining armour, a promise the latter has made to their dying father. Circumstances entail Vikram landing a job in the police force on the claim of his deceased father's service, with Ronnie taking on impossible assignments in his name, earning big bro the moniker of a top cop. The newfound fame lands Vikram a routine paperwork job in Syria, after which, he gets abducted, bringing Ronnie to the country to unleash hell.

Guilty movie review: Kiara Advani delivers her career best in a balanced look at both sides of the #MeToo coin

Guilty lays bare the varied faces of the #MeToo movement after a small-town girl accuses the most popular boy in the college of raping her one year after the incident, which opens a can of worms that not only highlight which side of the debate people (even modernized, free-thinking ones) fall on and why, but also exposes the innate bias society possesses against victims and the upper hand the privileged section wields when they're called out







Karan Johar has become synonymous with Netflix to the extent that he has even set up a sister concern of Dharma productions, called Dharmatic, solely for producing OTT content for the digital platform. However, the fact of the matter is that most of the content emitting from him hasn't been appreciated by the regular audience of Netflix, with the possible exception of his segment in Lust Stories. Well, the content creator can now hold his head high as he has finally delivered a web product to be proud of. Guilty, the latest web movie from Dharmatic, starring Kiara Advani, may not be without its flaws, but it's nevertheless an engaging film, which also highlights several pertinent points about #MeToo .

Angrezi Medium movie review: The Irrfan-Radhika Madan starrer uses humour to hide its flaws

Angrezi Medium has some great ideas, but they don t translate on screen. Even superlative performances aren t enough.





Yes, it felt great to see Irrfan back on the screen. Unfortunately, despite all his efforts, he can’t salvage Angrezi Medium.

What’s it about
The opening scene of the film is about a young boy taking his batting stance. He keeps moving as he’s not sure whether his stance should be in front of the crease or behind it. This young boy is Champak Bansal (Irrfan) and his confusion doesn’t end there. Years later, he faces yet another dilemma. His daughter, Tarika Bansal (Radhika Madan) has a dream to visit London. Even though he wishes the best for her, he’s a single parent and doesn’t want to let her go. He eventually agrees and does whatever it takes to make her dream come true. They somehow reach London along with Champak’s brother, Ghasitaram Bansal (Deepak Dobriyal), but their problems don’t end there.
