Salman Khan is back with his long time collaborator, Sooraj Barjatya to give a Rajshri style family drama. Though Sallu Bhai was quite good in his "Prem" avatar, the film however was a tad bit too old-fashioned and worn out to leave a serious mark on the audiences. Bollywood has undergone a massive change since the last time people flocked in to watch Salman Khan portray Prem in a Sooraj Barjatya film. In "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", Salman gets to play a double role which we knew quite well from the trailers of the film. The film however is filled with all of the stuff you expect from this sort of a film. Prem Dilwale (Salman Khan) is a huge fan of Princess Maithili and goes to meet the Princess at her fiance Prince Vijay's coronation in Pritampur but due to some sinister work by the Prince's brother Ajay (Neil) and relative Chirag (Armaan), a tragedy strikes. As Vijay suffers their violent assault, Pritampur's Diwan (Anupam) asks Prem to play Vijay's part - and protect Maithili. What will happen between Maithili and Prem? What will happen when Vijjay wakes up? Salman Khan is a fine actor as we all know and he gets to fully showcase his skills as two very contrasting characters within a single film. As Vijay, Salman shows off some some grit and seriousness while as Prem, we get to see Sallu bhai in a very cheeky and a sweet role. Sonam Kapoor carried herself elegantly as a Princess and had her moments in the film but there was nothing special in her acting ability to be impressed about. Neil Nitin Mukesh as Ajay and Swara Bhaskar as Rajkumari Chandrika were decent enough but the script didn't do them any justice. At times some of the scenes made absolutely no sense at all. A case in point was when one of the main characters of the film was getting treated in a dungeon. Another one asks: "Why don’t we shift him to some hospital with security?" Diwan Jee says, "We can’t trust anyone," which translates into 'go take a walk haters, and don’t leave your logic behind'. Dancing Halwais and a feudal football match make really no attempt to move the narrative forward either but rather make the story even less interesting. Another big Problem is the length of the film which is far too long for the audience of this generation. Nearly 3 hours of a rather average affair seems like an eternity for a lot of people but not Salman fan's. Himesh Reshammiya's music is a decent one and compliments the narrative of the film but there isn't a single track which can be called a chart-buster. If someone wants to take a time machine and go back to the bygone era of Sooraj Barjatya's family drama saga starring Mr. Salman Khan then maybe this movie is made for you. Yes! it has all the ingredients of a classical Bollywood "Masala" film like some romance, good old fashioned family conspiracies, some tea-jerking moments and a colourful and a grand canvass on which the film is made on. But the script has too many flaws to even mention and the narrative is not that much intellectually compelling enough either. Though one thing is certain that Salman Khan will not disappoint anyone with his comeback as Prem but the film might. Rating 2.5/5
Warning: Spoiler Alert! Well world's favourite MI6 agent, James Bond is back in the latest flick from the franchise to hit the screens, Spectre. Who could have guessed 50 years after "Dr. No" released that we would still be captivated by the super spy series. It is truly a remarkable achievement that a movie character can remain iconic over such a long period of time. Spectre, the spin-off to the most commercially successful Bond movie ever "Skyfall" feels rather unsatisfying and intellectually less superior than its most recent predecessor but nonetheless it does have it's share of signature Bond moments which will surely delight some fans. Spectre has the feel of some the earlier versions of James Bond films but it fails to integrate the perfect story line it fully deserved. Director, Sam Mendes was handed a hefty budget of more than $250 million and we do get see some high quality action stuff also. The opening scene set in Mexico City against the backdrop of the Day of the Dead festival is breathtaking and to top that the opening credits sequence featuring the song, "Writing's on the wall" by Sam Smith is hauntingly beautiful. Seriously it is perhaps the most wonderfully crafted opening credits sequence ever. After the hard hitting introductory phase we get to see Daniel Craig as James Bond getting into his regular spats with his superiors and defy their orders and travel to places like the Rome, Austrian Alps and Moroccan Desert in search of Franz Oberhauser (Christoph Waltz), the head of the all powerful and evil organization called Spectre. Yep Mr.Bond can seemingly travel all over the globe with ease. It is not James Bond unless we get to see Bond get it on with some women. Monica Belluci looks seductive in a very minor role and Lea Seydoux has her own charm as Dr. Madeleine Swann. The new Bond-Girl might be stunning in looks and a decent actress too but her role is far inferior as far as the story goes from that of Eva Green's character in "Casino Royale". The problem is not with the cast but the script. When a small group of MI6 agents are battling to uphold the best interests of the world against an ambitious British Government Official who happens to be implanted by Spectre, you begin to doubt the script somewhat. Was the British Government sleeping? M (Ralph Fiennes), Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) are battling against C (Andrew Scott) while Mr. Bond is away fighting off Spectre. Christoph Waltz can convincingly play the part of any role offered to him. Waltz portrayed Franz Oberhauser brilliantly. Waltz brought back the feeling of the vintage old-school Bond villains but one will question that why did his character make the most seemingly textbook errors a villain ever makes. Dave Bautista's character was also similar in nature to earlier versions of gigantic henchmen who used to square off with Sean Connery's depiction of James Bond. The villains were less challenging than they were in the recent past. Well this might be Daniel Craig's last outing as the iconic James Bond. Daniel Craig brought a cold-blooded assassins appeal to James Bond which was never seen before. The Bond he represented was cold, humourless and darker in nature. Daniel Craig took James Bond in to the contemporary world quite well and it will be sad to see him put his expensive tailored suit as James Bond one last time. Spectre if viewed as a purely action film might make a lot of the audiences happy but the script had too many cliches and the second half of the movie is stretched without any real substance in it. The cinematography is spectacular and the regular Bond stuff is there too, like the love-making, the explosions and the car chases. If you want to see James Bond in action go see this movie but if you want to enjoy an intellectually stimulating espionage cinematic masterpiece then its better to skip this one. Rating 3/5
Kapil Sharma has come out with a bang for his debut film titled "Kis Kisko Pyaar Karu" but the movie has failed to impress the critics. The romantic comedy film features ensemble cast, including Arbaaz Khan, Manjari Phadnis, Amrita Puri, Simran Kaur Mundi, Elli Avram, Sai Lokur, Varun Sharma, Supriya Pathak, Sharat Saxena, Manoj Joshi, Sharad Sankla (Charlie), and Johnny Lever's daughter Jamie Lever. The duo of Abbas and Mustan have returned as the directors for this movie. Kapil Sharma has now developed a huge following with his TV show, "Comedy Nights with Kapil" and he has unexpectedly done as a fantastic job for this movie but unfortunately for him an inadequate script and a weak plot have let him down. KKPK has it's share of jokes which might bring out a lot of laughter from the audiences and some really gorgeous actresses but other than the plot does not offer anything substantial. A lot of movies have come out in the similar adult romantic comedy genre with many of the same features so it's up to the cinema goers to decide weather they would want to see something like this or not. Over all Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon is a brain dead comic caper but if you prefer Kapil Sharma kind of comedy than you can watch this.
The Khan Vs Khan debate will continue to rage on in Bollywood for years to come. Team SRK, Team Aamir and Team Salman will furiously debate over who is the best. Leaving “Sallu Bhai” out of this for now, I will explain the many factors which make Aamir Khan triumph over Shahrukh Khan in terms of acting, film choices and overall influence in Bollywood..   To many people Shahrukh Khan is the King of Bollywood and his romantic lover boy image has dominated Bollywood for a better part of two decades. But the problem lies in the fact that Shahrukh is more comfortable in his defined Romantic hero domain and hardly ever chooses to do roles other than a big glitzy commercial Bollywood extravaganza. To be fair Shahrukh has acted in films like “My Name is Khan” and “Chak de India” but the majority of SRK films nowadays are designed with no intent other than being commercially successful and content hardly matters. After analyzing Aamir’s career trajectory from the start, one realize how this particular Khan chooses different roles to play and how easily he fits into every character he portrays. From playing a Street Mumbai guy with a colourful image in “Rangeela”, to putting in a fine performance as a 19th century villager in “Lagaan” and forcing Bollywood loving youth to change their hairstyle with instilling wonderful performances as an Urban Indian youngster in movies like “Dil Chahta Hai “ and “Rang De Basanti”, Aamir truly is an unique actor. While SRK is choosier about the director and movies he works in, Aamir is more focused about the character he plays. Aamir definitely has the better list of movies in which he has acted compared to Shahrukh. Aamir has four movies in the IMDB top 250, (“Taare Zameen Per”,”3 Idiots”,”Rang De Basanti” and “Lagaan”) while Shahrukh has one only (“Swades”). Aamir chooses a movie because of the content and the script involved. What makes Aamir great is the ability to pick extraordinary roles like “Rab Nawaz” from the Canadian Production “Earth” while Shahrukh let the opportunity passed before his eyes when he turned down the Oscar winning “Slumdog Millionaire”.. For many people Aamir is way better actor than Shahrukh ever was. At times the “King of Bollywood” is guilty of over acting by many critics and commentators. In the book Everybody Wants a Hit: 10 Mantras of Success in Bollywood Cinema, author Derek Bose wrote, "The joke going around then was that Shahrukh Khan had no more than five expressions to play about with and by cleverly juggling them in film after film, made his mark as a superstar".S Shahrukh is a bigger commercial draw than Aamir ever was. King Khan vigorously promotes his brand at every opportunity he gets. Shahrukh attends every award function while Aamir does not and goes on to say “My personal experience about these award ceremonies is that I don't trust them. I have no faith in them so I would prefer to stay away”. Shahrukh has the better endorsement deals and is present at every corner in the world where he has the spot light on him. Shahrukh was there at the prestigious Madam Tussauds for the unveiling of his wax statue while Aamir declined an invitation by the same Museum and went on to say that he is only interested in making movies. The argument over Aamir and Shahrukh will continue to wage on for years to come. For me Aamir is the real deal and the real perfectionist. SRK maybe the King of Bollywood but Aamir is the better actor and is involved in better films. Let the war continue on.
