Vikram Vedha Movie Review

Vikram Vedha Movie Review

It is a power-packed movie with solid punches of Hindi dialogue

Vikram Vedha is a remake of a 2017 Tamil movie of the same name but from the same directors. Writer and director couple Pushkar-Gayathri is the maker of the original Tamil and remake Hindi movie. And they have left the audiences guessing which one is a better movie.

Story

SSP Vikram (Saif Ali Khan) is pressed into an operation of nabbing a sly and slippery gangster Vikram (Hrithik Roshan) who lords over the Lucknow underworld and keeps the police officers on their toes. It is the same Tamil story told in Hindi but with new characters. And it won’t be an exaggeration to say that the director couple has relied much on the star cast to make the film popular in the Hindi belt.

HIGHLIGHTS

• A drastic backdrop change and Hindi dialogues that are both conversational and philosophical bring minor tweaks to the story
• The battle between two legendary actors is crammed with intrigue and energy
• Lucknow with its historic structures gives the movie a distinctive visual texture
• The cinematographer has made significant adjustments to suit the new location and production design
• Saif Ali Khan makes a far better Vikram than R. Madhavan in the Tamil movie

DOWNSIDES

• The story matches line-by-line with the Tamil movie
• Saif and Hrithik together outperform the supporting characters
• Vijay Sethupathi looks far better than Hrithik Roshan

F3: Fun and Frustration is the sequel of the 2019 movie F2: Fun and Frustration. While the F2 dealt with the fun and frustration in relationships, the sequel F3 is all about the fun of running after money and the frustration of not getting enough.

Venky (Venkatesh) and Varun Yadav (Varun Tej) are ordinary guys with ordinary lives but they dream of becoming rich one day.

Would they be able to become heirs of the unlimited wealth of Marali Sharma?

HIGHLIGHTS

• Venkatesh and Varun did a commendable job with their expressions and mannerism
• Using the casts of F2 creates an engaging canvas that keeps the viewers enthralled throughout the movie
• Comedy is a strong highlight of the movie as it makes it interesting despite a weak story

DOWNSIDE

Mahesh Babu starrer Sarkaru Vaari Paata made a blasting start in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana where it collected around Rs.36.01 crore on the first day. But the credit for this early success could be given to the hype and noise made by the trailer. Late reviews of the movie are less than satisfactory for director Parasuram.

Story

The story revolves around rich people defaulting on bank loans and the government-corporate nexus protecting the big defaulters by recovering the bad debt from average people.

Mahesh loses his parents at an early age. They had a farm loan that they were unable to repay and they decide to end their life leaving their only son Mahesh with Rs.1. Mahesh finds refuge in an orphanage and emerges as a big moneylender in Miami, US.

Mahesh loves money so much that he values dollars above everything and everyone. One day he meets Kalavathi (Keerthy Suresh) and gets impressed by his traditional lifestyle. Kalavathi asks him for a small loan of $10,000 that Mahesh gives even without checking her papers. She becomes his love interest.

In the next scene, Kalavathi is seen in a western dress. She is a modern woman who loves going to casinos and spending lavishly on gambling. Kalavathi is the daughter of a big business tycoon Rajendranath (Samuthirakani) of India. She lives in Vizag with her father.

Oh My Dog

Oh My Dog Movie Review

Based On The Emotional Bonding Between A Kid And Blind Pup, The Movie Is Bogged Down By Careless Writing

Oh My Dog has been released and the first reviews are out but there is little excitement among the audiences. The film is predictable right from the beginning and some characters are forced into the story from nowhere just to keep it moving. The only thing that makes the movie watchable is three generations of actors working together.

Story

Fernanado (Vinay Rai) is a rich dog owner who breeds the best canines for winning international dog shows, and luckily, he is just one win away from creating a world record of consistently winning dog shows. Sadly, one of his pups is born blind and he decides to eliminate that pup. But the canine somehow escapes from his clutches.

Here enters little Arjun (Arnav Vijay) in the movie. The kid finds the blind pup and brings the dog home. He raises the blind dog despite family objections and friends making fun of the canine. The compassionate child calls the dog, Simba. Arjun’s father Shankar (Arun Vijay) wants to help his child despite differences with his father Vijaykumar.

Arjun takes Simba to a dog show where the audiences appeal to the organizers to allow a blind pup to participate. Also, a doctor comes from nowhere and performs an expensive surgery on Simba. These things happen so fast that the audiences get little time to imbibe the facts.

Highlights Of The Movie:

• Three generations of actors Vijaykumar, Arun Vijay, and Arnav Vijay are working on a movie
• Arnav Vijay delivered a great performance, especially his bonding with a blind pup
• Vijaykumar as a grandparent did a commendable job
• Mahima Nambiar … Read the rest

Taanakkaran Movie Review

Vikram Prabhu Starrer Gives A Glimpse Of The Hardships Of Police Training In Modern India

Written and directed by Tamizh, Taanakkaran movie revolves around a British-era Police Recruits School (PRS) that still follows the colonial rules set by the British to train Indian police officers. The movie questions the reason for continuing the tradition started by the British in India even after many years of independence. It is a nerve breaking story of police training in India.

Story

Arivazhagan aka Arivu (Vikram Prabhu) is a trainee police officer at PRS where police officers of independent India are trained on the lines of the British model. The recruits are expected to unquestioned obedience to their superiors and the system. The PRS is controlled by Inspector Muthupandi (Madhusudhan Rao) who with his valet Eeshwaramurthy (Lal) tortures the recruits in the name of parade training. Arivu raises his voice against the injustice done to the new entrants. He stands firm on exposing the system even after all hell breaks loose.

Taanakkaran Movie Review

Highlights Of The Movie:

• The functioning of PRS is picturized in the most realistic and convincing manner
• The emotions of the officers trained in the hell-like atmosphere are narrated most effectively
• All brilliant colors are muted to create earthy pictures to give a real-like feel to the school
• Reportedly based on the real-life incidents of 1997
• A hard-hitting drama depicting the unforgiving police system of British-era

Downside Of The Movie:

• The story is made melodramatic
• Overuse of reaction shots and repeated reiterations to show the cruelty of senior cops
• Some torture scenes are over-exaggerated without giving any justified reason
• Officer Eeshwaramurthy seems to have a taste for torture
• … Read the rest
