Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Movie

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales tells no tale at all

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has many tales to tell. The first and the most important is the story of hacking of the movie before its release and the ransom call to prevent its online screening ahead of release. But thanks god, nothing sort of this happened and the movie was released without any drama.

Second best Pirates of the Caribbean movie

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 has many good things to its credit. The directors are famous duo of popular Norwegian movie Kon-Tiki; the cinematographer Paul Cameron took gorgeous shots of great locations around the world and the villain Javier Bardem galloped several hams before coming to the set. The best thing is that it has many things happening for first time in the series started in 2003. With so many good things, the film is expected to be a hit but the initial reviews aren’t satisfactory.

Good things are abandoned

It is difficult to link the story with the characters or it would be more appropriate to say that audiences can’t relate the characters to the story. But it could be an individual opinion. In my opinion, viewers will try relating the actions and dialogues with the story. For me, it is like a zig-saw puzzle that I kept solving for those 129 minutes. It isn’t that the movie has no story at all but the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 story doesn’t correlate with the stories of the earlier installments.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 has many things first time

The movie surprises many times. Every character has a story to tell and every character is different for one reason or another. For instance take Jack Parrow, the lead actor of the movie. The story revolves around this character but the viewers are left to think what the hell Jack is dong in the story.

It goes back to hundred years when the Wonder Woman was naïve. To fit into the role, Gadot practiced a strict diet and exercise regimen and also practiced martial arts. The Wonder Woman is an action woman and Gal Gadot fits perfectly in this role.

Negative review

It isn’t all pink and roses for Warner and Bros as an insider has exploded a bomb on success of the movie. Wonder Woman is a mess claims an insider. The revelation was made in Schmoes Know show. The revelation is startling as the movie got many positive reviews during the California screening. But now the movie is ready to be released and the decision will be made by the audiences.

Half Girlfriend Movie

Half Girlfriend: Shraddha and Arjun are working together for the first time

Half Girlfriend isn’t the first movie inspired by a novel but it has become special as it is based on the novel of the same name authored by Chetan Bhagat. First it was 3 Idiots and they 2 States; Chetan Bhagat pen has always struck gold at the box office for Bollywood.

Another important factor in the movie is actor himself. Arjun Kapoor is the male protagonist and his selection is made for his superb acting in past movies and not because his family background. Director Mohit Suri met Arjun Kapoor while working on Half Girlfriend script and he tried to pre-judge the actor for the role. At that time, Arjun wasn’t aware that he’s being screened for an upcoming movie.

Arjuc Kapoor was also present in 2 States that was also based on the novel of the same name by Chetan Bhagat. Could there be a connection between Arjun’s role in 2 States and in Half Girlfriend? This question lies unanswered but Mohit Suri said in a media interview that Arjun is just perfect for the role of MadhavJha of Half Girlfriend.

He said that Arjun’s struggle for life matches with the struggle of MadhavJha. Obese Arjun really worked hard to shed weight and become slim. Now he is fit and the credit goes to his hard work and not to his family background. Here Mohit Suri spilled some beans of the story. He hinted that MadhavJha belongs to middle class and he meets his half-girlfriend during his struggle.

MadhavJha is a Bihari boy with simple living and high thinking. He arrives in Delhi in search of a better future and meets Riya Somani played by Shraddha Kapoor. Riya belongs to a high society where Madhav is unacceptable. It is an emotional story of love and friendship. On the release of trailer, Arjun said that the movie has nothing to do with the kind of love portrayed in other movies. Here it is eternal friendship.

Meri Pyaari Bindu Movie

Meri Pyari Bindu:Why lead actors were missing in the trailer?

Meri Pyari Bindu is special in many ways like it is produced by Maneesh Sharma who gave hits like Fan, Band Baja Baaraat and Dum Laga ke Haisha. And second thing is its actor who’s is a short statured; medium body and lesser known Ayushmann Khurrana. Acting against experienced Ayushmann is Parineeti Chopra.

Here, it can be said that it is Ayushmann, who always wears a smile over his face, is the perfect choice for the character of Meri Pyari Bindu. His character is a pulp fiction writer, Abhimanyu Roy, and his buildup and personality matches perfectly with the character. Thick beard and large black pinto-style-glasses make the jolly nature Ayushmann look like a mature and serious writer. But character of Parineeti Chopra is just opposite of Ayushmann. She’s Bindu, a struggling singer.

What happens when an intellectual author meets a teenage singer? It is musical comedy. Like other writers, Abhimanyu is also suffering from nostalgia about his past life. He’s writing a novel titled Bindu but he couldn’t concentrate on the story. Fed-up of changing the story every now-and-then, he feels that the characters of the novel have a direct relation to his past and the 90’s music he loves.

 

Storyline

Abhimanyu Roy returns to his hometown Kolkata after achieving success in writing career. He wants to write something that is more meaningful; that can silence his critics and place him among the more serious writers. He starts writing an old-fashioned love story and after three years realizes that the novel is still in its nascent stage. The movie moves with the novel.

Maneesh Sharma is passionate about the idea of nostalgia in movies. His last movie Dum Laga Ke Haisha has also a touch of nostalgia. Even Maneesh has admitted that he plays with this idea out of his passion. Luckily the audiences also like the idea.

Hindi Medium Movie

Hindi Medium: It is all about English speaking India vs Hindi speaking Bharat

There is a common thing between the 2012 movie English Vinglish and 2017 movie Hindi Medium. Both the movies highlight value of English as a language of elite class in Indian society. While in English Vinglish, a decent housewife and successful home-business-woman faces flak due to her poor English, in 2017, a family feels inferiority for not being able to move to English speaking society.

Hindi Medium is the story of a typical Indian lower-middle-class family that dreams of moving to upper-middle-class for the sake of its progeny. The good thing about the movie is that the lead character is played by Irrfan Khan known for his serious acting in many movies. Saba Qamar is the actress against Irrfan. It is a light comedy but it also has a message for public. Language can’t determine intellectuality, decency and lifestyle.

The film is set in old Delhi. It is Chandani Chowk. There lives a young couple Raj (Irrfan Khan) and Mita (Saba Qamar). They are happily married but they regret for not being in the English-speaking society. They have a very sweet daughter and they decide to improve their standard for their child. They want to move to a high-society after improving their language as for them, English is the only means of transformation and symbol of growth.

Raj has good language skills but he is Hindi medium and on the contrary, Mita is convent educated hence fluent in English. Raj can’t speak in English due to his Hindi background but tries and Mita supports Raj in his efforts. But whatever they are doing to move to high-society isn’t enough to push their social stature up. They try many things go through pain and happiness in their efforts to become an English speaking couple.

The movie highlights tribulations of a typical Hindi speaking family and their hopes and aspirations from English language. While English Vinglish was a hit, fate of Hindi Medium is yet to be decided.

Sarkar 3 Movie

Sarkar 3: It is all about Amitabh Bachchan; his black attire; dialogue delivery and style of taking political decisions in the movie

The story of Subhash Nagre continues with Sarkar 3. It is the third installment of Sarkar series that started in 2005. But the biggest news about Sarkar 3 is its release that is the further postponed to May 12 due to post production issues. It is the second time that the release date is postponed.

In Sarkar 3, we’ll see grandson of Subhash Nagre but he isn’t like is uncle that we met on Sarkar Raj. Amit Sadh is playing grandson of Amitabh Bachchan. Remembe Cheeku of Sarkar and also recall Amitabh asking for Cheeku after death of younger son Shankar in Sarkar Raj. Cheeku is Shivaji Nagre andhe is more like his father Kay Kay Menon.His ideology is of a mafia and he looks strong and convincing in his negative role.

Manoj Bajpayee and Jackie Shroff are the new additions to the story and both are in negative roles. In the trailer, Jackie Shroff is seen saying that “Sarkar aadmi nahi, soch hai toh us soch ko maarne ka bhi tareeka hai mere paas”. It is the similar story of politics, corruption and betrayal. Manoj Bajpayee is playing Govind Deshpande that is a rebel and Jackie Shroff is Michael Vallya that is the sir. Yami Gautam will be in a new avatar that is a betrayer. She’s Anu Karkare in the movie and she’s seeking revenge on Sakar for murder of his father.

Stellar star cast is an indication that Sarkar 3 will be a high-octane political-crime-thriller on the present political scenario. Another highlight of the movie is dress-code for Subhash Nagre. Amitabh will wear the tradition black attire and also put vermilion on his forehead. But in Sarkar 3, he’ll look angrier and meaner. And Ram Gopal Verma is certain that the new avatar of Amitabh Bachchan will attract viewers. RGV is relying much on the charisma of Amitabh Bachchan for his comeback.

Thor: Ragnarok Movie

Thor Ragnarok: Every character in the movie has a different story to tell

Thor Ragnarok is Thor 3 or the third installment of the Thor series and 17th of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).The movie has the iconic Mjolnir and the whole bunch of bad guys including Loki but the biggest antagonist for the hammer wielding Thor is Hulk.

Thor 3 was confirmed in January 2014 but it’s the best Thor movie of all. At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor revealed the mystery of Infinity Stones and also gave hints of his next expedition to the cosmos and the Asgard. The film revolves around Thor and it is seen as an opportunity for Chris Hemsworth to give solo performance and a hit. One more interesting thing about the Ragnarok is that a robot clone of Thor was prepared for the movie. But it isn’t known how the robot factors in the plot. Hemsforth is just perfect for the role.

Loki is another important character in the move. He’s important not because his role in the plot but because he got all the limelight in the last two installments. This character managed to steal the show in one way or another. But in Ragnarok, it is all about Thor.

No review of Thor 3 will be complete without defining role of Bruce Banner also known as Hulk. In Ragnarok, the Hulk is an antagonist for some reasons but he was a friend of Thor in earlier installments. Will the hammer be able to stop the gigantic Hulk? The answer comes from Mark Ruffalo. He says that Bruce Banner fights with Hulk and ultimately the friend wins. Finally, we see Hulk teaming with Hammer to stop the destructive forces.

Thor Ragnarok is going to be a big movie in many ways. In addition to bringing a couple of cool and bad guys together, MCU is also able to include the Planet Hulk storyline in the plot. There is more to tell about the movie like Grandmaster, Hela and not to forget to mention Valkyrie, the great warrior of Asgardian descent.
