NOOR - What a confused and lazy way to make a crime investigative thriller with neither thrills nor any investigations ending on a weird note. (Review By Bobby Sing).

This Friday's One Line Reviews by Bobby Sing for making your movie plans..

When my Career Consultancy didn't work for a few strangely concerned parents. - by Bobby Sing (Few Life Inspiring Words - 23).

FAST & FURIOUS 8 (English/Hindi) - Partially enjoyable, but strictly for the fans loving the action genre. [TTP (To The Point) Review By Bobby Sing].

MANJE BISTRE (Punjabi) - It seems Punjabi Cinema is now stuck with period dramas focusing on a 'Vyah Wala Ghar' as their latest repetitive obsession. (Review By Bobby Sing).

BEGUM JAAN (Hindi) / RAJKAHINI (Bengali) - Benegal's MANDI meets Manto's TOBA TEK SINGH and Mehta's MIRCH MASALA in this bold but over dramatic effort, sadly remaining too bland to be called an epic despite its noble intentions. (An overview by Bobby Sing).

The last 2 shows at REGAL and the one man behind the event, nobody knows about. (A detailed emotional and technical description by Bobby Sing).

MUKTI BHAWAN (Hotel Salvation) - Could have been a classic, but surely deserves to be seen for its subject, performances and Varanasi in particular. (Review by Bobby Sing).

LAALI KI SHAADI MEIN LAADDOO DEEWANA - Stay away from this marriage and its tiring absurdity. [TTP (To The Point) Review By Bobby Sing].

MIRZA JUULIET - One of those strictly avoidable films that make you wonder why they got made and for whom? (Review By Bobby Sing).

Bandini - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

A sensitive portrayal of a women’s character and her loyalty for love directed by one of the 10 top film makers of India, Bimal Roy. Rated as one of his finest works, the movie talks about true love and its sacrifices. It represents the power of Indian Traditional Values still deep rooted in our living styles.

Nutan will be remembered forever as “Bandini”, a women who knows how to honor the commitments made in life. She truly takes you inside a woman’s heart and you can feel the hardships she is suffering in the changing circumstances. Specially the climax of the movie which beautifully shows the dilemma Nutan is facing, since she has to make a decision of choosing between her moral duty and her lover. The voice of S. D. Burman in the background, and the soothing melody, really makes it a poetic experience, not to be missed at any cost. You will have to see it to experience the emotions.
Directed By Bimal Roy
Starring : Nutan, Ashok Kumar & Dharmendera
Music By S. D. Burman

One of the most powerful films on the war between the people and the government of South Africa in the late 70s. It is another important and well made biographical movie by Richard Attenborough , based on an inspiring true story of Steve Biko (played by Denzel Washington), the leader of the rebellion movement of that time.

It showcases the political games played with the lives of the people following truth. It’s a powerful story of a newspaper editor who makes friends with a revolutionary (Biko) and then faces the consequences for it. It gives an idea of how the blacks were treated at that time by the white government and brings out the ugly face of humanity in the open. The movie was widely opposed and even banned in some areas at the time of its release. Strongly Recommended for intense movie lovers with a desire to look into the past.

Matrubhoomi - Bobby Talks Cinema.comAn important but a lesser known movie on a burning topic of the country which can easily be rated as one of the boldest ever films made in the Indian Cinema based on a real life truth. It revolves around the brutal and selfish girl child killing or female foeticide which can be strangely seen both in the rural as well as the urban metro cities, causing a huge gap between the boy-girl ratio in the country.

The movie is shockingly inspired from true incidents in the Indian Villages where it is now becoming tough to find a girl for every young boy eligible for marriage. However earlier it was widely accepted as a problem m
ainly prevalent in the less educated people living in the rural areas, who were supposedly killing the unborn girl child (& even the new born), only to have more boys in their families who can be a bread earner for them in the future. But the recent researches have revelaed that with the changing times, this problem has grown more rapidly in the cities among the educated citizens who are well aware of its consequences in the long run.

As per its powerful theme, the impressive movie is also full of many moral shocks you keep on getting with each new development in its storyline. Tulip Joshi is very subtle as the only helpless young girl in the village and all the male characters are convincingly cunning exploiting her taking their turns. A well directed, valuable Indian movie which should be seen by one and all especially by our own Indian Viewers as a must.

Ek Ruka Hua Faisla - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

Two films from the past, one original and other its version, but both are the masterpieces delivered by their respected directors. Though, the Indian version “Ek Ruka Hua Faisla” is an unaccepted adaptation of the original english black & white classic “12 Angry Men”, still I consider the realistic acting by the 12 Indian Actors, a step ahead of all the 12 Angry English Men.
Specially the class act by two Kapoors, Anu Kapoor and Pankaj Kapoor who played the old men in the jury, when actually both were very young and new at that time of their career. Both the movies are without any songs and with only 12 characters talking in a closed room. And both “12 Angry Men” & “Ek Ruka Hua Faisla” surely deserve to be in the collection of quality cinema lovers all over the world. In the English version Henry Fonda deserves a special mention for his strong acting skills and superb performance.
I strongly recommend you should see both the versions together at one go. And at the same time I also feel that the Indian filmmakers should have announced it as an official version of the original. Because the moment you come to know that it is an adaptation, it affects all the respect you had for the Indian writer & director.
Directed By (Ek Ruka Hua Faisla) Basu Chatterjee, (12 Angry Men) Sidney Lumet
Starring : (ERHF) Pankaj Kapoor, Anu Kapoor, S. M. Zaheer & More (12AM) Henry Fonda & Others
