Dastak - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

There was a time when Film-making used to be solely dependent upon ‘The Writing’ and its story content. An interesting plot depicting the social surroundings of the people was the first requisite of starting a project in those days. And that was the reason why we had so many famous writers from the world of literature working for films as the contributors of its story, dialogues, script and lyrics. Such was the depth in the basic idea behind all those movies that they still are studied as a benchmark in the history of Hindi Cinema after so many decades.
 
DASTAK (Knock) is one of those rare & bold movies made on an off-beat subject which surprisingly still remains relevant even today after so much development experienced all over by the society and its people.

Revealing its outstanding thought provoking plot, just imagine the trauma faced by a newly-wed couple (shifted to their new house), after they are told that the house was earlier owned by a prostitute who was pretty famous in the locality and used to run her business right from there. Taking the viewer into the couple’s extremely tense and uncomfortable days in that house, the movie is a kind of philosophical journey digging into the various kinds of double standard personalities living around us in a society. Besides, it also re-defines the power of Tolerance possessed by a human which empowers him to surpass any unexpected tough condition in life with his precious patience.

Coming to the cream of talented people associated with the film, it is written, produced and directed by Rajinder Singh Bedi, one of the 20th century's greatest progressive writers of URDU fiction. The name needs no introduction to the readers who are well familiar with Urdu Literature and its prominent writers. But the best thing is that here the original writer has himself directed the film in such a manner that it makes a very similar kind of impact as felt after reading the story in its published form. And that is not an easy task to achieve since there are very few movies which have been equally transformed into an enlightening visual experience taking it all from a book.

Featuring the one & only Sanjeev Kumar along with Rehana Sultana as the innocent couple, DASTAK is also known for its outstanding soul stirring musical score by the unmatchable Madan Mohan including the songs sung by the Queen of Musical Notes, Lata Mangeshkar. In fact the tracks are universally included in the list of The Finest Ever from this famous talented duo and can be found in the Top 10 List of both the magicians, compiled by any music critic or fan living anywhere around the globe.

Thoughtfully penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri the songs have 4 mesmerizing gems such as "Baiyan Na Dharo", “Mai Ri Main Kaase Kahun”, "Tumse Kahoon Ek Baat" & "Hum Hain Mataye Koocha Bazaar Ki Tarah". As an extra rare bonus the Original Soundtrack of the album also includes a version of “Mai Ri Main Kaase Kahun”, sung by the Ghazal-Maestro Madan Mohan himself and its indeed a precious gem to be treasured by every serious music appreciator loving Hindi Film Music and Ghazals all over.
But the list doesn’t end here. DASTAK has been shot beautifully by Kamal Bose in Black & White and for that he very deservingly received the BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY AWARD too from FILMFARE in 1972. The film also has another reputed name associated with it of Hrishikesh Mukherjee who contributed as the Editor of the film just before he went on to be the legendary director himself. So it is can even be called “The Creative Creation of Many Masters of Their Art Together.”

Having said that, the masterpiece may also turn out to be a tough watch for few youngsters who are quite used to the current age fast paced films. But if the above description of this Ultimate Classic interests you then ‘Go For It’ at the earliest and get a taste of those Golden Times, when life was spend and lived slowly at a soothing pace without any electronic gadgets around us taking all our time and attention. To be more precise, its story talks about the time when “Prostitution” and “Mujra” were the favourite amusement sources for the rich and they used to be a very known but unavoidable integral part of the society. But at the same time it was also an era when people actually knew and took care of new entrants in their locality with all their love and in reality exactly understood the deeper meaning of the word called “Neighbors”.

Summing up I would like to add that DASTAK is one of those rare and intelligently made films which were way ahead of their times both in their content and the treatment. So the basic message, meaning and importance of the film remains the same even after 40 years of its release.
And that makes it A Highly Recommended must watch indeed!

Andha Yudh - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

During the 70s & 80s Art Movies Wave in Hindi Cinema, there were many small but remarkable films made by few directors who later on somehow got lost in the technological changes in the medium of expression all over the world. Dayal Nihalani, can easily be included in that list since he came up with this well thought of film in 1987 as probably his first directorial venture, but later on couldn’t give us any other similar gem in his entire career.
 
ANDHAA YUDH is a song-less, political thriller written around a dramatic emotional plot which is both novel and interesting supported by many brilliant performances from its talented cast. It broadly revolves around a deadly terrorist (Raj Babbar) who has just killed the Chief Minister of the state and has now taken a shelter in a house with only a bed ridden female patient (Pallavi Joshi) in it. By holding on to her as his only means to escape an arrest, he tries to manipulate the situation. But as he interacts more with the girl, he meets with his own hidden part of a good hearted man and then decides to take a completely unexpected decision.
 
The helpless Inspector in charge on the other hand is none other than Nana Patekar, who tries to tackle the tense situation to the best of his ability. But the sudden twist in the end makes the things worst leading to a superb climax, wherein Nana returns to his original form acting as the social rebellion taking the necessary last resort decisions at the right time.

Supported by well known actors such as Rohini Hatangadi, Shivaji Satham, Sudhir Pandey and Divya Rana and having a well composed Background score, ANDHAA YUDH is a perfect example of the Off Beat Cinema trend of those two decades in Hindi Cinema, which may not be known to many youngsters of today’s net age. Written around this one line plot, the film further moves into more darker aspects of our cruel society, wherein the youth is misguided and used by the politicians for their own benefits and the Police just acts as a puppet caught between the two.
 
So if you are really into appreciating these great unheard gems of that gone era, then do watch ANDHAA YUDH as a must. The film is not a very polished product in terms of technicality or production values, but it will clearly give you a glimpse of those changing times when the writers and directors deliberately started thinking out of the box, with a strong revolutionary social angle in their films.

Directed by Dayal Nihalani
Starring: Raj Bababr, Nana Patekar, Pallavi Joshi, Rohini Hatangadi, Shivaji Satham, Sudhir Pandey and Divya Rana.
Music by Ajit Verman

Super-humans films are being made in Indian Cinema since the Black & White era but we all actually started enjoying it since MR. INDIA in 1987 and then went on to appreciate the new age trend started by Rakesh Roshan with his KOI MIL GAYA (2003) and KRRISH (2006). Recently the Super-Star Rajnikanth re-invented the genre with his ROBOT or ENDHIRAN (2010) and the audience simply loved it in a huge way.

So it was pretty obvious that after the magnificent show put up by ROBOT, Shahrukh’s RA-ONE was being unanimously discussed among the cine-fans in a doubtful tone. The similar kind of set-up and story idea was the basic reason behind that and every true fan of KING KHAN was simply praying that all these doubts are strongly proved wrong at the day of its release this Diwali.
But now as the film is being shown in the theaters with more than 4000 prints all over India and abroad, the news is sadly not so encouraging for the die hard fans of Shahrukh. However since its undoubtedly the biggest film of Hindi Cinema ever made, hence it rightly demands a detailed discussion of the project under the following heads:
The Film
Talking about its commercial business, RA-ONE may fetch a phenomenal start shattering many previous records all over the globe. But in cinematic terms the film starts off at a very bad and mediocre note. The opening dream sequence featuring Shahrukh, Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra interacting within a game with their Hit songs being played in the background, is a big let-down. Though shot brilliantly, it straight away makes the viewer think that “Has the movie really started?”. And then there are names of three lady Bruce Lees written on the screen which again make you wonder that “Is this really a Kids movie?”
In true words, the first hour of the film is well short of all the over-hype created by the KING KHAN himself since it neither introduces you with its Super-human G-ONE, nor it entertains you enough with its unimpressive family scenes and extremely long computer lab sequences of making the game called RA.ONE.
As disclosed before its release, the film talks about two super-human characters who step out of their virtual game into the real world and then need to be rectified in time. The one line story gets predictable the moment you meet G-ONE the good robot, coming out to fight with the bad one called RA.ONE. So from the story point of view you have nothing in store to surprise you right till the end.
But apart from its technical brilliance the film fails to impress you with it execution too. Like the first sequence where Shahana is introducing the technology in a small auditorium, doesn’t really match the enormity of the project. Secondly it was really surprising that there were only 3-4 people working in the huge computer lab making the Big game called RA.ONE.
The first half majorly keeps talking about the father-son relationship in an uninteresting manner and the film actually starts after almost one hour of many emotionless family scenes. But as the hero G-One comes on the screen, it kicks off from there with some splendid graphical representation of the two robots and starts making an impact. Post-intermission too it offers an enjoyable fight sequence taking the story onto the Mumbai Airport, but later on steps on to a completely predictable platform, ending it all with a pretty weak and ordinary climax.
To be straight, they may have spent 150 crores on the project but even then its nothing close to a very well thought off, worked upon or exceptionally planned project since it is all based on a badly written script which ignores the entertainment factor completely and unintelligently relies more on only its graphical content. In simple words, keeping the technology merit apart it’s just another usual Bollywood project where compulsory songs can start any moment, a forced comic track is squeezed in which rarely works and has a little bit of emotional outburst too to keep the ladies engaged.
So despite of the fact that Shahrukh puts his full efforts in the movie flying from one building to another, exploding many costly cars into the sky, stopping a speedy train with his bare hands and also dancing on the hit track of Chhammak Chhallo, RA.ONE still fails to create the desired euphoria in the audience due to its routine, predictable storyline and a badly written screenplay.
Technological Excellence Achieved in its Computer Graphics
Moving over its negative points, RA.ONE unarguably is the best effort ever made in Hindi Cinema, as far as computer generated graphical sequences are concerned. The film sets new standards of film making, which can easily be rated as very close to the international standards of the West. However I many times feel that why our Indian Super Hero always seems to be hanging from an invisible wire while gliding down with the girl in his arms and the same is never the case in any foreign film.

With a stunning production design, RA.ONE becomes a treat to watch, only if you are interested in this part of the film-making alone. So all video-game addicts are sure going to love it for its outstanding technical excellence achieved but I sincerely wish it was also backed by some great writing too.
Shahrukh’s dilemma of making a single movie for both India and Abroad
Due to his huge popularity in both parts of the world, Shahrukh’s films always find themselves in the dilemma of incorporating content for both kind of markets together in one project which is indeed not an easy task to do for any writer or director. In the past Shahrukh has been successfully dealing with it in his HIT films but in RA.ONE he messes up with the content unfortunately.

In order to achieve the said objective, the first part of the film is set in abroad showcasing all the western family culture and school sequences related to Shahrukh’s kid. Whereas post interval the film comes back to Mumbai purposefully to entertain his Indian fans which in turn leads to more confusions and unanswered questions, such as “How on earth the robot RA.ONE managed to fly (or board a flight) from abroad to the Indian Region”. Hence this time Shahrukh’s move to satisfy everyone on the planet falls flat.
Emotional Quotient and Viewers Connect
IF you recall Rakesh Roshan’s movies made on the similar subject, then you would agree that they mainly worked because of their expressive emotional quotient and an instant connect with the viewers. But RA.ONE simply has nothing to offer in this respect since it completely fails to connect with the viewers both in emotional and entertaining terms. While watching the film, one neither feels any pain for the suffering family nor feels connected in any way to the cause for which G-One is actually fighting. To my surprise, there is nothing specially conceived or written in the script keeping the kids in minds, which in my opinion can become a big drawback for the film.
Moreover, just think that whenever we consider a Super-Human then he is supposed to be a savior for everyone around in the city. But in RA.ONE, here is a Super-Hero who is only concerned to save the members of one particular family and rest of the world simply means nothing to him, which is highly unacceptable as per the set standards of the concept. Hence if the Super-Hero is there to save only one family, then how can all the people sitting in the theater ever feel connected or related to him?

Unexpected and Totally Avoidable Vulgarity in a Super-Hero film which ideally is meant for the Kids.
In a highly objectionable manner RA.ONE goes down to the level of being called disgusting when the film uses many avoidable sexual references, right in the first five minutes and then repeatedly in its various sequences, even featuring the kids in it.
In fact, it was really unacceptable for a film which is ideally meant to be a Kids movie, to use such words and actions in its key sequences. For instance just imagine, the kid of 8-10 years saying Condom laughingly or asking G.ONE to grab the main part of his opponent. Further, a fat lady teacher dancing like a pole dancer in front of her students, the supposed to be good robot G.ONE patting on Kareena’s back saying “Babes”, gazing at the cleavage of a beautiful girl or grabbing Kareena’s chest and then a Gay police officer (with suggestive expressions) asking G.ONE to take off his shirt showing the places where he has got rings pierced on his body.
Crossing the limits, just let me know that which kids movie expects the tender aged children to laugh at names such as “
Iski Lee, Uski Lee & Sabki Lee”, who are the imaginary Lady warriors in a game, shown on the screen.
If this is what Shahrukh was willing to show to the kids all over India and abroad in the name of a Super-Hero film then I am really sorry for all the families who had and who would be taking their kids along to see this movie.
Performances
Coming right to the point, only Arjun Rampal from the entire star-cast, is able to make some kind of impact in his short but powerful portrayal of RA.ONE, followed by Armaan Verma playing Shahrukh’s talented kid. Otherwise it’s a big thumbs down in the performance department since one never gets to see the real confident Shahrukh Khan ever in the entire film. No doubt KING KHAN’s fans would love watching him as the Super-Hero but at the same time they are also going to miss the love and warmth in the emotionless act delivered by their adorable star. In fact the initial scenes of Shahrukh 2 as the G-ONE even reminded me of his performance in MY NAME IS KHAN. And I really didn’t like him making a mockery of South Indian geniuses working in the IT world in his weird kind of hair-style.
Kareena Kapoor is there is the film, only because there has to be a female good looking showpiece in a super-hero movie and she does it to perfection. And then there are loads of artists simply wasted in their short scenes such as Shahana Goswami, Dilip Tahil, Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra, Satish Shah and more.
And talking about the small cameo by the Super-Star Rajnikant, I would like to rate that scene as an insult to his majestic stature in the Indian Film Industry, which cannot be forgiven by any ardent fan of HIS ever. In reality the way, both Anubhav Sinha and Shahrukh Khan have conceived that particular scene, puts me into doubts about their real intention of using the Super-Star more for the betterment of their project and less out of sheer respect for the phenomenon.
Music
A more than 150 crores project, essentially needs to be backed by a great soundtrack. But here Vishal-Shekhar are able to give you only one HIT number and that too taking the support of another big name in the World Music, AKON. All the other songs in the film are just above average and they do not deserve to be a part of such mega project for sure. Getting over-confident with their prestigious project, Vishal-Shekhar also come up with a loud background score inspired by R. D. Burman notes. Like the G.One musical call, looks straight coming from the prelude of the song “Duniya Mein Logon Ko” from APNA DESH.
Direction
When I was first informed about Anubhav Sinha directing this mega venture, I was confused upon the choice made by the Team Shahrukh. And now after watching its final version, I feel more puzzled upon the decision taken with such a huge amount of money on stake. Anubhav Sinha has always given stylish movies with minimum content in the past and he continues doing the same with RA.ONE too. But this time he is going to regret this Big mistake made forever, cause this was probably the biggest break he could ever get in the Film Industry. In short, you got to blame Anubhav alone for this whole debacle made ignoring the basic necessity of making a film i.e. a powerful script. And he can only escape the blame in case Shahrukh was there trying to be the Ghost Director of the film, deliberately interfering in its every department as the Big Influential producer.
Dialogues / Screenplay / Cinematography
As discussed above the film has a very weakly written script with a very uninteresting screenplay which doesn’t give the audience or the kids even one enjoyable scene to cheer at. And the point to be considered here is that this screenplay only is written by 4 talented persons from the Industry. The dialogues are even worse than the screenplay, using many objectionable sexual terms which should not be there in a Super-Hero movie which is mainly going to be seen by families together having kids of all ages.
Thankfully the cinematography is first rate giving you at least something to praise in the costly venture. Few of the chase sequences and fights between the two robots are really worth watching.
RA.ONE and ROBOT or EDHIRAN
Though RA.ONE surpasses every Hindi Film made till date using the computer graphics as a major part of its screenplay. Still I cannot rate it as the best ever effort made in the entire Indian Film Industry due to the obvious reasons. Hence the crown unarguably remains with Shankar for his fabulous work in ROBOT or EDHIRAN which undeniably had many more and better CGI sequences as compared to RA.ONE.

In fact Team Shahrukh has taken several inspirations from ROBOT itself. Like the train chase sequence where Shahrukh is running all over the speeding train and the multiple numbers of robots coming in the climax to confuse G.One, both these scenes are clearly inspired from the Original.
Inspirational Factor
Apart from its inspiration taken from ROBOT, RA.ONE has several references of classic Super-Hero films such Frankenstein, Terminator-2Spider-ManIron-ManBatman, Bicentennial Man and Matrix. It even has a parking scene inspired from one of the episodes of Mr. BEAN and also has a poster taking inputs from the one designed for BATMAN where the hero is holding the lady in his both hands. Other than these, the coward father and the provoking child relationship also reminded me of a Kishan Kumar film called “Papa The Great” (2000), which was too based on the same theme. And interestingly Kishan Kumar is one of the owners of T-Series, the company which has released the music of RA.ONE.
In all I really felt very sad after watching the costliest ever film made in the history of Hindi Film Industry, as I seriously wanted it to be a BIG HIT for the sake of the Industry itself. But the truth remains that you cannot sell a weak product by only over publicizing it before its release coming at every radio/tv channel, newspaper, magazine and other advertisement mediums. Because in the end its only the content which will bring in both the praises and the audiences into the theater.

Rating : 1.5 (for the movie) + 1 (for its technical brilliance achieved) = 2.5 / 5

Its DIWALI time of the year 2011 and here is an alarming inspiring story for all my friends on this festive occasion, which in fact was also sent to me as a gift by one of our friendly readers of the site.

With a hope, that the message would help you celebrate in a better way with all your beloveds together.
...............................................
A man stopped his car at a flower shop to order some flowers to be sent to his mother through courier, who lived two hundred miles away in another small town.

As he got out of his car he noticed a little girl sitting outside the shop sobbing. He asked her what was wrong and she replied, "I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. But I only have few coins and a rose costs 10 rupees".
The man smiled and said, "Come on in with me. I shall buy you a rose." He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother’s flowers at the shop.

As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said, "Yes, please! You can take me to my mother." 
She directed him to a cemetery where she quietly stepped out of the car giving her honest thanks to the kind man.
As the car stood there, she went inside and placed the rose on a freshly dug grave and just sat there looking at it with love.

Starting his car again, the man returned to the flower shop, cancelled his Courier order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother’s house, to meet her in person.

Because he suddenly realized the importance of time to do the right things in life…………….before it gets too late.

HIS BLESSINGS
