Bajrangi Bhaijaan

I am huge SALMAN Fan and Bajrani Bhaijaan has been into my MUST WATCH list from the time the promotions started on Social Media. But, getting the ticket was a real fight. House Full on Book my Show for the Eid weekend. All the tickets were booked in advance. So, I had to take the trouble of going to one of my nearest theaters to get the tickets. This reminded me of those old times when you had to stand in a queue to get the tickets for a Super hit movie. But, this movie is a Hit from the first day first show!

#BajraniBhaijaan what a concept!! The movie is about a beautiful relationship which knows no border. A girl who can’t speak is lost in India and by god’s grace she meets Bajrangi, our Salman Khan who pledges to take her back to her family in Pakistan. In this world where people are just killing people, coming out with this concept was extremely thoughtful of the team. It’s a moment of pride for me, that Indian Cinema is coming out with brilliant concepts which has made the people think. Cinema is a mirror to the society and it has the power to change the thought process. This is one of those movies. Kudos to the entire team.

Talking about characters, let me begin with Bhaijaan, Salman Khan. He has played Pawan kumar Chaturvedi, who is disciple of Lord Hanuman and doesn’t lie. You will love him for his simplicity and honesty in his character. At the same time, he has been extremely passionate about helping the little girl and taking her back to her family in Pakistan come what may. He has been emotional like a child and tough like a tiger. This is one of his outstanding performances. Next, I will talk about the little girl Harshali Malhotra. She is the real star of the film. She has acted so well as speech impaired girl that you can’t believe her age. Her expressions, emotions and beauty are simply adorable. She looks like a doll and any one will fall in love with her.

Kareena Kapoor, (Rasika) the leading lady who has played the lady love is beautiful as ever like the name of her character. She has acted naturally and done great for the part given to her. She has looked great with ethnic wear and lovely jewelry. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who has played Chand Nawaz, a Pakistani reporter is marvelous. His passionate efforts to help Bajrangi in finding the little girl’s parent are remarkable. He has added humor to his character which has left a mark on my mind. Special Mention to Om Puri and Sharat Saxena for their performances.

The best part of the film is the story, which is written by V Vijendra Prasad who is known to have given many blockbusters one of which is Bahubali. The dialogues are superb, songs are peppy. Everyone around is humming #Selfielelere. The film has been shot at beautiful locations like Rajasthan, New Delhi and Kashmir adding beauty to the story. The film has been conceived, thought, and directed extremely well by Kabir Khan, who has put all his heart to the movie. We, viewers have laughed, cried, prayed and fallen in love with the movie. High on emotion, brilliant on passion and Great in Action. A MUST WATCH movie and trust me, you will leave the theatre with pride, happiness and smile on your face.

Badlapur, What a FILM!!

The name reads Badlapur, don’t miss the beginning. It’s just not the beginning but till the end, you simply can’t get out of your chair. The story keeps you glued.

I wanted to watch the movie from the day it started rolling promotions on Television; especially to watch Varun Dhawan diversifying himself into a new dimension of Acting. Varun has taken a huge leap from his last movie and must say, his acting skills have grown exponentially. He has played Raghu, a sweet boy who matures into a dark man due to the circumstances so convincingly. I especially admire him playing the older Raghu. His transition from the youth to the revengeful is seamless and mind blowing. Hats off to his performance. He has raised the bar with his performance in this movie.

But, the Man who deserves a standing ovation for this film is Nawazuddin Siddiqui. He has played a dark character being a perfect fool. He has added humorous element to the movie. This guy does his homework thoroughly. His acting, comes to him effortlessly. This character is going to be a milestone in his career for sure. Take a bow MAN!!

Coming to the female protagonists, Huma Qureshi has looked beautiful and extremely comfortable in her skin. This girl is amazing. She does things as if they come naturally to her. Other ladies Divya, Yami and Radhika are commendable. They have played a small but strong roles which has given the story a different direction.
The story line is very simple with well-defined characters. Director has done a brilliant job with the script. Songs are sweet but Jee Karda is my personal favorite due to Varun’s Dance. 4*/5. A movie highly recommended!! Please get your tickets booked to watch a great movie.
