ANAARKALI OF AARAH - You praised Amitabh teaching the meaning of a woman's NO in the court, now praise Swara doing the same in a differently authentic manner. (Review By Bobby Sing).

PHILLAURI - It's a confusingly conceived Punjabi film made in Hindi, based on an interesting but inspired idea with the only merit being its emotional climax. (Review By Bobby Sing).

TRAPPED - Post an unconvincing start, it fairly keeps you engaged as a praise-worthy off-beat attempt featuring an impressive solo act and some notable merits. (Review By Bobby Sing).

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

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).

BADRINATH KI DULHANIA - A unique case of the makers returning with the same lead pair, a similar title, identical looks and the same old premise of a wedding, mocking at the viewers patience & choice. (Review by Bobby Sing).

LION (English/2016) - An emotionally uplifting film which once again depicts INDIA in a bad light and we know the westerners do have a fascination for such dark representation of our country since decades. (Review by Bobby Sing).

ANUPAMA (1967) - Its touching emotional climax and DDLJ - By Bobby Sing.

COMMANDO 2 - Focusing on suspense instead of action, Vidyut gets no support in this poor and so casually conceived film unfortunately. (Review By Bobby Sing).

LOGAN (English/Hindi) - You will make faces, tighten your fists and do several things going through this brutal, cold blooded must watch thriller for sure. (Review by Bobby Sing).

Based on a real life case of three film students who went into the woods, to enquire about a local urban legend, this is not anything close to the usual horror movies you must have seen. The three students, who went on an expedition to investigate about the Blair Witch in the woods, went missing and never returned. Almost one year later the video footage shot by them was found lying in the woods, on the basis of which this film is made in a pure realistic manner.

Conceived on the basis of all those unclear yet terrifying findings of the students, this is a fine piece of art which is both directed and enacted in quite an exceptional and unconventional way which can scare you like hell. Without showing any kind of horrifying spirits, blood or using special effects, the film takes you into a completely different world altogether where you will feel like lost in the dark only waiting for something strange to happen any moment around you with a strong feeling of fear.
Here I would also like to state that for some viewers, it may not be an easy task to watch “The Blair Witch Project” as a movie because it has not been made like a normal film project in the first place. The hard hitting realistic depiction of the real events shot (in a documentary style) with a handheld camera, in black & white, night vision may become unbearable, annoying and head spinning for many. So just opt for this scary movie keeping in mind the vision with which it has been made as per the footage found in the woods.
For instance, many times the screen will go dark without anything happening in a clear way with only some voices coming from a distant place. And that only will make you feel the terror in a unique way. The film neither gives you any concrete answer nor does it reach on any kind of conclusion towards its end. But it surely gives you an experience of a life time which stays with you for long. So watch it as a must if you want to see something novel in the genre of horror movies. But don’t try watching it along with your young kids as it may leave a weird kind of impact on their innocent minds.
Directed By Daniel Myrick, Eduardo Sanchez
Starring : Heather Donahue, Michael C. Williams and Joshua Leonard.

Raat - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

With “Bhoot” Ram Gopal Verma scared everyone out there with his innovative camera tricks and brilliant use of sound effects in the year 2003. The film certainly was a first for many Indian viewers who were earlier only familiar with the Ramsay kind of routine movies offered in the name of horror. In other words “Bhoot” converted the horror genre into an enjoyable one with its different kind of scary treatment given by the master director Ram Gopal Verma.
But in reality, “Bhoot” was a kind of remake of RGV’s own masterpiece “Raat” which came in 1992 and couldn’t make an impact due to the unwillingness of the viewers to accept any kind of invention or breakthrough in this particular genre. In fact “Raat” was way ahead of its time, stressing completely on the horror element in its script without including any kind of song, dance or romance angles. And that may be the reason why RGV took the same subject again and presented it before the New-Age audience in 2003 with a more relevant title of “Bhoot” taking huge help of the now available advanced visual and sound technology.
This time RGV was able to convert it into a Big Hit since after more than a decade of Cable Revolution the audience was ready to take it in full spirits. Hence if you loved “Bhoot” but have not seen or even heard of “Raat”, then you haven’t watched the original source of this modern day Hit. Released more than a decade before “Bhoot”, “Raat” is even more impactful and to the point as it does not majorly depends upon any visual and sound technology alone. It has got more tension prevailing throughout which is handled superbly by the director right till the end when the rescue man (Om Puri) arrives in the haunted house.
Moreover its brilliant multi-talented star-cast (featuring Revathi, Rohini Hattangidi and Om Puri) makes it even more powerful and impressive, which in turn forces you to keep thinking about it for days after watching it. Though RGV does seem to be inspired from the famous horror movies of the West such as “The Exorcist”, “Rosemary's Baby” and “The Omen”,  but still his end product does have his own distinctive stamp which undoubtedly makes it a worth watching experience for every lover of horror movies all over the world. So go for “Raat” now.
Both Films Directed By Ram Gopal Verma
Starring : (Bhoot) Ajay Devgan, Urmila Matondkar, Rekha, Nana Patekar, Fardeen Khan, Seema Biswas and more.
(Raat) Revathi, Rohin Hattangidi, Om Puri and more.

A film which simply transformed the way Horror movies were conceived remains one of the most influential works done in this particular genre in the recent times. A film, which forced every movie lover to take the Horror genre more seriously as a craft to be enjoyed and admired. With never seen before kind of stylish shots and an intelligent interpretation of a dark secret, this surely can be rated as one of the best Horror movies made all over the world till date.

Though the English version titled THE RING may have become more famous among the movie lovers due to its universal appeal. But the truth is that its original source which happens to be a Japanese movie called RINGU (released in 1998), has its own merits and strong points which has often lead to a decent comparison between the two among the movie critiques. However even the Japanese Original is reportedly based on a novel “Ringu” written by Koji Suzuki which was published in 1991.
Revolving around the story of a cursed video tape, which results in mysterious deaths of all the people who watch it, the movie is a must watch for all, as it open new undisclosed windows of horror in front of the viewer in a mesmerizing style. If you still haven’t watched it and opt for it now then you would surprisingly find most of its scary scenes as already seen before in several films. And that’s because THE RING series (also continued as THE RING TWO) has been an inspiration for almost every horror film director since its first release in 1998. In other words, the movie has unarguably achieved a cult status in the world of cinema in the last decade and therefore becomes an essential watch for every movie freak without any exception.
Directed By Hideo Nakata (Japanese) & Gore Verbinski (English)
