BAHUBALI 2 - It delivers larger than life cinema as a solid prequel & conclusion but the excellence seen in the final hour of its original remains missing. (Review by Bobby Sing).

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).

April 29, 2017 Saturday     

Another movie holding the controversial tag of Plagiarism hits the theater this Friday. Highly inspired from “Death At A Funeral” released in 2007, this star ensemble flick is a very poor version of the Original. Publicized as an enjoyable comedy, the movie falls flat as it neither has any good comic moments nor any enjoyable performances to cheer you up.

Based on a time span of few hours, it starts with the song “Daddy Cool” and then straight away enters the house where a funeral has been arranged. From there on the whole movie revolves around various characters visiting the premises to attend the funeral. Each character has his own short story angle, which is supposed to be funny but fails to deliver. The variety of sub-plots used in the narration, have nothing to offer in the name of comedy or entertainment. In fact, at times the forced humor goes overboard to the limits of being called weird and is not able to generate a healthy laughter (like in the bathroom sequence with Javed Jaffery and Prem Chopra).
 
There is nothing great about any particular half of the movie as it keeps on moving at a similar pace throughout. And the biggest disappointment comes watching it’s hushed up climax where suddenly everyone undergoes a heart transformation without any reason. The entire star-cast tries hard to make you laugh, but their efforts prove futile as they are not equipped with a good hilarious script. Among the male lead, Suniel Shetty, Javed Jaffery and Aftab try their best to make you smile but from the ladies it’s only Sophie who stands out with her stunning looks.
 
However, in an otherwise uninteresting attempt by the director K. Murli Mohan Rao, there is one intelligent move of not inserting any songs in the project. The songs are only used in the opening and ending titles of the movie which comes as a big relief for the viewer. The other technical departments also score just average and its really great that the movie finishes off in only 2 hours or else it would have been intolerable completely. Moreover, the funeral concept of everyone coming to mourn, dressed in their black suits has a very limited appeal for the Indian viewers.
 
With international production houses ready to initiate action on this plagiarism issue, its better we come up with some original ideas or take due permission from their makers before copying (I hope they have done that, this time). In all, “Daddy Cool” is a very weak adaptation by the director and also a wrong choice of subject for a Hindi movie. So, watch it at your own risk.
 
Rating : 1 / 5

I am getting sick of this remakes, they're making bollywood look bad and unoriginal, bollywood should go back to simple classic storytelling as was in the case of a film like Do ankhen barah haath which i saw recently.

Rather than buy rights to silly flicks like The hangover money should be invested in good story and scripwriters, even going through the daily newspapers or news channel can be sources of inspiration.

Ya, you are very right in saying so.....Infact if a person watches few old movies from the Golden Era and after those some of the current ones, then he will be amazed to see that we have walked miles ahead technically and also slided downwards content wise.

If you really saw "Do Ankhen Barah Haath" just yesterday then I will suggest to please go through the "Movies To See Before You Die" seciton at my site and start watching the Hindi movies listed in it.

You will never regret doing it even if we may have different tastes and choice, because a good cinema always tastes sweet.

And Thanks for writing in. I hope you do it more often,

Cheers!
