KONG SKULL ISLAND (English) - Though lacks an emotional pull and the original charm, it's still an incredibly made entertaining comic-book adventure to be experienced in a well-equipped theater. (Review by Bobby Sing).

Mohd-Rafi

The 2016 Diwali release AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL also came up with an unnecessary insertion hurting a big number of Hindi film music lovers and the die-hard fans of Mohd. Rafi. But the inclusion also revealed a major difference in the vision of two renowned directors of the present times, namely Karan Johar and Imtiaz Ali as seen in their films AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL and ROCKSTAR respectively.
Without mentioning the exact words used in the completely ‘avoidable’ dialogue mentioning one of the most talented as well as humble personality witnessed by our film industry till date, the scene itself has been treated with a confused vision by the director, since at one end it shows Ranbir respectfully touching his ears taking the name of Mohd. Rafi like a true follower, but on the other has Anushka making a downright silly comment over the legend’s incomparable and impeccable singing……… unnecessarily.
Having said that, I am still not in favour of any kind of boycott of the film for such ‘questionable inclusion’ in its dialogues, as its an onscreen expression conceived as well as allowed by both the director Karan Johar and his actors Ranbir and Anushka (surely) without any purposeful intentions. But at the same time, this was quite absurd and unrequired, which could have been easily replaced by another line without making any difference to either the scene or the characters and their characterisations.
For instance, instead of taking specific names, Ranbir could have simply said,
“I love and adore old film songs before the 80s”
and Anushka could have replied,
“I simply hate them as they are pretty slow, sad and depressing”,
exactly like many in the present generation assume them to be due to their own personal reasons and preferences.
In fact no one would have even noticed the particular dialogue in this form and no one would have got hurt in absence of any specific name quoted in the said sequence.
So in my opinion this one upsetting line was quite unintelligent and mean ….… gravely misguiding, misleading and giving seriously wrong suggestions to the generation born post the 1990s.
Ironically the title of the film “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” was also taken from the opening verse of a song sung by Mohd. Rafi for film C.I.D. (1956) and the lead actor Ranbir's father Rishi Kapoor's entire career had a deep relation with the voice of the ever-smiling immortal legend. Interestingly this also reminded me of a famous Rafi song from another Dharma Production's film titled DOSTANA (1980) saying, "Mere Dost Qissa Yeh Kya Ho Gaya, Suna Hai Ke Tu Bewafa Ho Gaya" (perfectly matching the present scenario).
With filmmaking there also comes a responsibility to rightly portray the things and pass on the legacy to the next generation without bringing in your personal likings or misconceptions influencing the young receptive minds.
And this mindless inclusion contradicted and ridiculed that important responsibility….. BIG TIME!
Individually any person like Karan Johar has all the rights to have his own views or conclusions over any specific artist. But in a film, which is a medium reaching out to millions of (unaware young) viewers all over the world, you surely need to be extra careful staying away from any such personal biased conclusions demeaning one of the most loved icons of the past in any manner. Because even if you didn’t mean to, it will always be taken as a deliberate negative comment made purposefully.
Perhaps that’s where the ‘Real Sensibilities’ of a director get revealed representing his own thought process towards such blessed stalwarts and their exceptional body of work cherished since more than half a century in the country and world over.
However let me explain the same with an example of how another director dealt with a similar situation in his film much more intelligently and cautiously having the same star in lead i.e. Ranbir Kapoor.
In his ROCKSTAR director Imtiaz Ali conceived a situation where the upcoming singing sensation Ranbir meets a renowned Shehnai player enacted by the veteran Shammi Kapoor in the office of a reputed audio company. In his one sided conversation with the respected figure Ranbir does make fun of his Shehnai and its traditional art commenting over the repetitions made in Hindustani Classical Music in his own negative and questionable way, but never even once he names any particular real life figure maintaining the dignity of both the film and the art-form displaying a clear thought process of his director.
Probably that’s where you get to see the difference between the vision of a Karan Johar and Imtiaz Ali as two contemporary directors writing and presenting a similar scene in their scripts targeting the young audience………… or probably that’s where the difference lies between ‘a thoughtful film’ and ‘a well marketed glossy product’ largely dependent upon its colourful packaging, clever promotions and the star-value.
Cheers!

To begin with, I suppose films are made for ‘We The People, The Fans or The Die-Hard Lovers of Cinema’ willing to catch every new release on the weekend with the same excitement and passion.
But if the so called BIG filmmakers, BIG Stars, BIG Producers and Exhibitors are least concerned about the ‘deliberate ticket price increase’ being charged from us at the time of every big release by these ‘New-Age White Collared BLACK MARKETEERS”, then their films also don’t deserve any detailed in-depth reviews and should only be given that much time and attention they are really worthy of.
------------------
So here is the TTP review of AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL which was surprisingly a quite poor and dull film from the house of Dharma Productions or Karan Johar.
Coming straight to the point, AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL never picks up post returning from the flashback narrated by Ranbir himself in his opening interview. Remaining completely focused on verbal and sexual conversations/relationships between its various characters, the film fails to engage the viewers post its initial few minutes, since the narration never offers anything fresh or novel rising above the already seen and heard stuff in films like TAMASHA, ROCKSTAR and more.  
Though a particular dialogue really made me go numb talking about one of the most loved stalwarts of our Hindi cinema, I still thought that they might be rectifying it later with another related sequence fulfilling the duty of a responsible filmmaker. But that never happened right till the very end, and I would like to discuss it later in details post the film’s basic review.
Unexpectedly, the first half of ADHM gives you the same old story progression revolving around two boys and a girl. And the second half introduces another gorgeous lady coming into the life of our lonely hero leading to a short link-up only to get broken by the return of his old girlfriend. But if this doesn’t sound clichéd then we also have a ‘terminal illness’ plot thrown in towards the end which neither connects emotionally nor gives you anything engaging resulting in an even worse second half, yet again reminding you of films such as ANAND, KAL HO NA HO, THE FAUTL IN OUR STARS (English) and the recent dud KATTI BATTI.
In short, everyone seems to be pretty confused and disconnected in the film right from the performers to the makers and they all collectively once again try to fool the viewers with (the trademark) eye catching glossy looks, elegant attires, surprising cameos (SRK & Alia) and good music always associated with a Karan Johar film.
Specifically, both the director and his writer seem to be pretty confused that whether they wished to praise the films-music and stars of the gone era or mock them asking for a laughter ruining many old golden hits distorting their original compositions in their lousy remakes. (Just check out how poorly KJO uses ‘Aaj Jaane Ki Zid Na Karo’ being played in a discotheque with people dancing on a different beat altogether!!!!)
The inferior, chaotic thought process adversely affects the performances too wherein even Ranbir Kapoor looks like repeating himself playing another similar character. And both Aishwarya Rai and Fawad Khan remain criminally wasted with only Anushka managing to deliver some watchable brighter moments.
Summing up, a few good songs and some witty dialogues are the only positive points in this weakest project from the director who always makes films focusing on the ‘rich’, completely ignoring the middle and poor section of our society due to his own reasons.
In other words, AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL can easily be rated as Karan Johar’s soulless attempt to slip into the mode of director Imtiaz Ali – and that’s probably the best way to describe this Diwali misfire.
And regarding the appreciable thought of 'One Sided Love" presented in the film in a weird and quite silly manner, ONE SIDED LOVE is so so pure, intense and divine that it cannot even think of anyone else than the beloved even for a second even in the dreams, forget about sleeping or indulging in sex with another so casually.
I hope this says it all about the failed vision of the film insulting the divine gift.
Rating : 1 / 5
Note: Addressing the repetitive issue of ‘Unfair, selective increase in ticket price by the Multiplexes’.
Though my site and write-ups might be too small in front of the big runners and my voice raised against this MULTIPLEX MAFIA also might not get heard or reach anywhere.
But what nobody can stop me from is deducting ONE STAR from every such film that takes ‘we the viewers’ for granted (in revolt). So a star goes from the rating of AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL too since every big actor, director, production house and exhibitor is equally contributing in this sheer exploitation and willfully ignoring the issue over the last couple of years.
Final Rating : 1 – 1 = 0 / 5
--------------------
Coming to the completely ‘avoidable’ comment on MOHD. RAFI, the pride of our Hindi Cinema, known to be one of most talented as well as humble person witnessed by our film industry.
Without mentioning the exact words, this was a quite absurd and unrequired addition in the film which could have been easily replaced by another line without making any difference, since it didn’t even have any solid context or connection in the characters ongoing conversations.
Moreover this was pretty silly, unintelligent, mean and disrespectful of both Karan Johar to add it and Ranbir Kapoor to allow it ………misguiding, misleading and giving gravely wrong suggestions to the generation born post the 1990s.
Ironically the title of the film was taken from the opening verse of a song sung by Mohd. Rafi only and the lead actor Ranbir's father Rishi Kapoor's entire career had a deep relation with the voice of the ever-smiling immortal legend. In fact this reminded me of a Rafi song from a Dharma Production's film only titled DOSTANA saying,
"Mere Dost Kissa Yeh Kya Ho Gaya, Suna Hai Ke Tu Bewafa Ho Gaya"
As per my personal opinion, with filmmaking there also comes a responsibility to rightly portray the things and pass on the legacy to the next generation without bringing in your personal likings or misconceptions influencing the young receptive minds.
And this mindless inclusion contradicted and ridiculed that important responsibility….. BIG TIME!

------------------
So here is the TTP review of SHIVAAY which was much more disappointing than I was honestly expecting it to be.
Wasting the first 45 minutes in all filmy, seen before and boring sequences of (amateurish) tracking/mountaineering, romance with a foreigner tourist and an illegitimate child born out of the relationship (as usual), SHIVAAY fails to impress in this first section of its screenplay requiring some severe editing. And the film actually manages to grab your attention only when Ajay travels to Bulgaria along with his 8 years old mute girl to find her real mother.
Showcasing the widely practiced flesh trade in the city involving young kids too, it keeps you engaged with a long well-conceived chase and action sequence dealing with the kidnappers. But once it over, Ajay quickly gets into the avatar of Salman Khan/Sunny Deol blasting Bulgarian Police and the local goons reminding you of similar circumstances and story plots seen in GADAR, BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN and the English film TAKEN too. In fact here we again have a mute kid-girl, just like we recently saw in Salman’s blockbuster with a much better enactment, presentation and treatment.
Post intermission the film comes up with an even bigger mess in its every next scene and one keeps waiting for more action sequences (at least) in order to get some kind of return for both the time and money spent on the costly tickets. In short, one never feels emotionally connected to anyone in the film revolving around family relationships (that ideally remains the first requirement for such subjects). And then a too long climax with all illogical sequences within a Police headquarter and more truly remind you of those typical Bollywood films of the 80s featuring the ‘God Blessed’ macho hero with a tattoo of a Trishul, who doesn’t get hurt even after being dragged on the road or fired upon by several machine-guns from a helicopter.
Focusing on a supposedly superhero who can do almost anything in the world with minimum efforts and equipment, SHIVAAY is stunningly shot showcasing the hills, snowstorms and more, but the mountains have nothing to do with the film post its initial 20 minutes to be precise. Moreover some specific scenes once again force me to ask that why ‘the chroma’ sequences can easily get caught in our Hindi films, but not in the foreign projects using it even more extensively?
At an excessive 170 minutes of duration, SHIVAAY wastes too much time on the obvious and gives you nothing great to say about the soundtrack or background score too unfortunately. Featuring the foreign language in few of its important scenes, the director doesn’t even care to explain them with English or Hindi subtitles as required.
Among the actors Sayyeshaa Saigal looks fine in her debut performance of a helping figure (just like Nawazuddin in BB) but the kid girl visibly struggles in her given scenes. Plus, even Ajay Devgun hasn’t got anything fresh to offer to his fans other than the well shot action sequences both as an actor as well as the director.
In short, after heavily promoting the film as some kind of adventure movie, SHIVAAY turns out to be nothing of that sort at all, making you wonder that how come Ajay found this kind of story exciting enough to use for his mega directorial venture made on such a grand scale? No doubt the choice was strange, disappointing, silly or conveniently foolish altogether, coming as a Himalayan disappointment.
Having said that, would still like to end with a very fine dialogue heard in the beginning of the film and it goes as,
“Zaroorat Se Zyada Kabhi Maanga Nahin,
Aur Zaroorat Se Kam Usne Kabhi Diya Nahin”
Go for it, only if you are a die-hard Ajay Devgan fan and cannot give it a miss.
Rating : 1.5 / 5

Sully

Based on the miraculous event witnessed by America on a cold morning of January 2009, when a US Airways flight had to make an emergency landing on the Hudson River instead of the nearest New York airport, SULLY is one of those rare exceptional films which makes you rethink about life and the unseen force behind it we preferably love to name and remember as THE GOD.
Moving into the must watch list of BTC for its excellence achieved, SULLY is realistically executed and has a very subtle, effective but ‘no overly dramatized’ presentation with no intention of sensationalizing the scary event for the obvious reasons. Becoming a perfect example of a film that strictly remains focused on the subject recreating the incident in a horrifying yet sensitive manner (with an excellent cinematography and sound) it takes you into the minds of its two main protagonists who were actually responsible for all those crucial decisions made in the nick of time, particularly the Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger played by Tom Hanks.     
Though many might find the film not as exciting and explanatory as it ought to be, I would still love to strongly recommend SULLY to the readers for a few of my own reasons that you might not find in any of the film’s review or the usual write-ups.
First of all SULLY simply amazes me as a near-to-perfect project conceived and visualized by an extremely gifted creator living his eighth decade of life, when most of the human faculties are normally not at their best, making way for many physical and mental complexities moving towards the final destination. Directed by the 86 years old maverick CLINT EASTWOOD with an incredible vision, well-supported by his lead actor TOM HANKS of 60 with an splendid ease, SULLY reminded me of our own DEV ANAND, who though didn’t churn out any quality films at all (since the 80s), but still kept working right till the last day of his life at the age of 89 as desired.
Pointing towards probably the most precious gift for a person from the humble existence, Eastwood sets a fine example with his SULLY, making us realize that such gems are even possible at the age of 86.
Secondly, the film makes you recall a very popular saying in India as “Jaako Raakhey Saaiyan, Maar Sakey Na Koye” – meaning “If that Supreme Power has decided to save a soul, then nothing in this universe can cause it any harm (not even a plane crash)”. And what better example can be there to prove this truthful saying. A plane hits into a big flock of geese only 3 minutes post its take-off resulting in failure of both the engines, an emergency landing needs to be made anywhere around with no time to reach the nearest airport, the pilot decides to make it land on the Hudson river in an extremely cold weather, the whole crash happens in just a few minutes and yet not even a single casualty is there with all the 155 people on board rescued well in time by the ground forces coming for an immediate help.
Now what better example can be given to prove the Indian saying?
Thirdly, this one incident makes it pretty clear to the entire world led by the amazing technical advancements, that any kind of man-made machine CANNOT be compared to a human mind at all, especially in those life threatening decisive moments of crises when some immediate decisions need to be made within a few seconds without caring about what’s actually written in the prescribed manuals by the experts.
The film and its real-life case clearly proves the supremacy of a human mind over the machine quite evidently.
Lastly but most importantly, SULLY reminds us about a brutally alarming truth that along with these amazingly helpful developments enhancing our living standards, we certainly have lost one important quality of life and that’s the ability of TRUSTING the other, without any hidden doubts.
The fact is boldly visible in the film when despite the unbelievable miraculous landing on a river saving each and every life on the plane by its two pilots, they are still not trusted by the authorities and made to face an insulting trial investigating the actual happenings of the crash instead of honouring them for the same.
Perhaps the whole world has changed post the 9/11 and we have lost the ability to ‘Trust’ valuing ‘Profit and Loss’ a lot more than the real valuable things.
Anyway moving over the sad truth, do watch SULLY at the earliest as the film does have the power to reinstate your faith in both GOD and CINEMA together asking for a standing ovation. Among the best scenes of the film is the one where a female hotel manager is called in to take care of the two Captains staying in the hotel. And seeing Captain Sully, she hurriedly comes forward to hug him with love saying an emotional ‘Thank you’ straight from the heart.
Interestingly the film did remind me of another ‘not-to-be-missed’ classic titled FLIGHT (2012) featuring Danzel Washington as the saviour captain caught in a similar situation. FLIGHT is also included in the ‘Must Watch List’ at the site. So do try to watch both….. if possible.
Directed by Clint Eastwood
Starring : Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart and more.
