Blue Story (2019)
Good try BUT Poor. Too many Dumb Characters
This film dumbs the black community of South London.
Hardly any characters you can relate to apart from the girl.
i grew up in a london council estate around kilburn/ladbroke grove. ive seen gang fights, i was sensible and stayed away, but i get the culture and i love ghetto or gangster films. From Scarface, Goodfellas to boyz n the hood, juice. Even The Football Factory, Green st Hooligans to Adulthood. Topboy was Brilliant and reminded me of real london life. Some of these film, based on real situations although glamorize violence have a good morale and should be entertaining.
Coming back to Blue story. This is where Rapman fails. He obviously tries to explain how a youth can get involved in a postcode gang. BUT Still no depth to the characters on why they choose to join. i.e. the conclusion is that they are all brainwashed
As a audience I coudnt relate and understand the need to join and fight for your postcode. i dont blame the actors, its the script. also Rapman fails in the end. The film should have a emotional good morale to show that it is wrong and stupid to do so and offer or educate solution to it. i.e. police support, the consequence, prison, getting abused in prison, but no...
what i learnt from this film (i.e. knife crime)... 1. The parents are a disgrace to society, the mother in this film has no clue what her son is doing and when police comes, she abuses the police for arresting her son, a murderer. Again making the black community appear dumb. blaming everyone but themself.
2. The youth are just plain thick, one scene they appear smart and sensible, in another they quickly and easily join a gang and are now stupid. again making the south london community appear dumb.
To be fair, Rapman tried. BUT it is a below average film.
Seong lung wui (1992)
Original Version 10 Stars.. BUT New version 5 Stars
Hey. i just wanted to educate people who dont know.
There are 3 versions of Twin Dragons.
1) New Miramax version - Rubbish, They cut out so many funny and cheesy scenes, they even changed the funny music in the background. Badly edited. Sadly this is the only English speaking version around and i can understand why people are rating it as bad or average, im surprised some love it and havent even seen the original version, if they did they would LOVE it
2) Original Hong Kong version. in cantonese. Excellent.
3) Original HK English Dubbed version (1992) This version is no longer available as Miramax have the rights. I am so glad i own this This is the Best version of all. Very funny, adventurous, exciting and briliant.
I have been a Jackie Chan fan since i was a kid ,(early 90s). This is in my top 5 Best Jackie Chan movies.
As some of the Die hard Jackie chan fans wil know, The best Jackie films are always the early english dubbed cersions and NOT the new english dubbed.
i.e. Dragons Forever, Police Story, Project A, Wheels on meals, Armour of god etc
if you want to see sample please see my youtube page. Google my name and twin dragons
Honest Review from Movie Expert
I have seen the original Teluga version "Temper" and was excited to see the hindi remake. I love Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh and looking forward to Sara Ali khan.
Good Direction, Good Acting by Ranveer, Ashutosh Rana, Sonu Sood, Sara was OK, its a small role to be fair on her.
But, The original Temper was much more Better, This was a oppurtunity to make the movie better. The original Temper, NTR Jnr was Fantastic. The story was much more gripping and tense. NTR helps the bad guys escape jail, works for them without knowing what they did, The character vuild up was much more better in Temper. Spoilers - The poor girl gets raped in Simmba. But in Temper, The poor girl gets kidnapped, raped repeatedly, held captive for 40 days, Tortured, burnt, acid, whipped, beaten. Brutalized and humiliated as they film this and make a dvd. Its much more horrific and you feel for the girl much more and hate the bad guys much more, Temper ending was fantastic, they got a good death, Simmba was very simple death. They triied to copy another famous south indian blockbuster (Theri) Overall, i am dissapointed with SImmba.
American Sniper (2014)
Firstly, Clint Eastwood has acted and directed in Superb Movies like Gran Torino, Dirty Harry series and The Good. This time Clint went Bad and the outcome is Ugly. Clint is ageing so its natural to get dim. This film is about a guy that loves killing women and children, which is acceptable in USA as the murder rate and serial killer list in USA is high (Check wikipedia for facts). It makes sense for doughnuts to consider this serial killer a hero. Fortunately for this Serial Killer, although he mentions He loves killing in the film, He can get away with it because of his Job. He kills people because of voices in his head, sorry, i meant he was told to by a voice in George Bush. Its no secret, The whole world knows apart from Doughnuts what Propaganda is. This War was a disaster and lots of injustice towards women and children but who cares. Doughnuts have been brain washed to hate certain races and its no surprise that doughnuts will enjoy this biased ridiculous film as you can hate certain races in this film.
I give this film a 1 out of 10 because i found the bit funny when the US Soldiers go to the enemys house, The enemy would mix toilet stuff with food and serve the us soldiers. They were dumb enough to eat it.
Am(azing)y Jackson and Superb Movie.
I am from London and South Indian films are Not popular here compared to Bollywood. This was my first Indian film that was not Bollywood and i was surprised on how interesting it was. I never heard of this film nor did i see any trailers. I randomly saw this film at my friends house with the intentions of watching the first 5 minutes, but i was glued on till the end. I am not familiar with any of the actors apart from Upen Patel who did a good job in this film. The main Actor performed pretty well and i wish him all the success. Amy Jackson from Liverpool is Gorgeous and does a great job in this film. I want to see more of her and I hope she can make her Mark in Bollywood and gets signed up for more films. The Movie has a unique storyline for a Indian film. Its like a Fairytale love story SLASH Action Revenge Movie. I am adding this to my Movie collection. Highly enjoyable film. Recommended.
Salman Khan driving a London Bus in Poland
High Expectations but Kick does Not Kick Ass. The Trailers were Brilliant and with a Eid release, Kick is certain to make big money in the Box office Worldwide. Great Promotions and Wonderful song sung By Salman Khan Hangover. This Film lacks a good story, Its like the old 80s Bollywood film modernized with better Graphics. Salmans character is a fun guy, intelligent but does not take life seriously and a circumstance in life changes him completely and he chooses a new life. It shows Salman as Being Human, i wont give away too much but Salman Fans will love him. The actress Jaqeline Fernandes was surprisingly Good and shows her talent that she can act if she gets a good role. Nawazuddin impresses. The film does have a few flaws, The worst being That Salman Khan is in Poland during a hiest and a minute later escapes from the polish police who strangely are driving a UK Police Car and even more strange is Salman Khan who in Poland escapes police driving a London Bus (No.10) going Kings Cross? WTF
Ang-ma-reul bo-at-da (2010)
Makes Hannibal look like bambi...Best Villain in movie history
Quite Simply one of the Best Horror films I've ever seen..and I've seen 1000s.
I have seen many violent films and have a massive collection of Hollywood and Hong Kong films. Untold Story and Dr Lamb are classic serial killer films that shocked me. I cam across i Saw the devil which stars the legend himself Oldboy. Wow Wow Wow, I was shocked and disturbed by the extreme violence but at the same time the film was gritting yet entertaining and kept me glued all the way. Superbly directed and Brilliant performances by the hero and villain. The Villain (Oldboy) was Amazing, what a performance. If this was Hollywood, he would of been on the top 10 all time villains list. Also the other supporting role serial killer cannibal was good to. Some people may hate this film for its brutal violence and rape, but the sad truth is, there have been and are serial killers and this movie shows the horrible experience the victims go through. I can understand people may not like a vigilante but its only a movie so chill out. Highly recommended. This movie definitely makes it to my list of favourite films of all time.
Golmaal 3 (2010)
Fast..Funny..Fun Tas Tick!!
Golmaal 1 was a Funny Hit Film which was very entertaining. Golmaal 2 Promised more fun but was cheap humour and a letdown. Golmaal 3 coming out i expected another Golmaal 2 style cheap humour. I was Wrong as Golmaal 3 was way better then i expected. It had a fresh new storyline, More characters who acted great. Non stop comedy and i could not stop laughing. Sure, there is 1 or 2 bizarrely stupid comedy scenes which was childish (i.e. Hum saath saath hai scene). There is a lot of great one liners which some people may not understand (Mainly the youth) as this film dedicated and spoofs many old Mithun films and classic movie dialouges. Ajay Devgan was great, Mithun was amazing, Its great to see Mithun finally in a entertaining role perfect for him. Normally i hate old couple love stories but This old couple's love story was Great. I use to hate Kareena 10 years back, but currently with 3 idiots and her recent films, she is actually improving and in this film she was wonderful. Arshad was exceptional, Tusshar was great, Shreyas was funny. Kunal was good. Johnny Lever was brilliant. All other supporting cast were great.
Storyline is similar to real life wot America has done
Storyline of Avatar is very similar to what America has done to innocent countries over the years. If you are foolish enough not to understand i am talking about all the invasions. The first invasion against the red indians killing them off. Then Vietnam for no damn reason and many others and the recent Iraq. I am not trying to create hatred guys as i am not saying Americans are bad. I am just saying that the leaders of this so called lovely country have F'd up the whole world. Using many tactics such as rape and violence against civilains and mind games, in other words Ignorance among people.
Coming to the point The Film. Yes it was a great film. Peace
Divya Shakti (1993)
Ajay Devgan is excellent. A Very Underrated movie
Divya Shakti is a very entertaining action movie well made by the director. A young Ajay Devgan delivers a terrific performance as the cowardice man who transforms into a angry courageous man and gets pushed to the edge. Set in Mumbai where corruption is everywhere Ajay see's. Where he works as a journalist, the police, the politician (Shakti Kapoor) who owns a womens welfare but is actually a brothel. And Amrish Puri the ruthless gangster of the area who gives Ajay a hard time. Amrish Puri was brilliant as the villain. I loved him in this movie as much as i loved him as mogambo in Mr India. Raveena has a small role but looks pretty, but this is a male related movie. This movie is one of Ajay Devgans most underrated movie, If you haven't seen it then do watch it.
Good film that could of been better.
I cant believe this film wasn't such a big hit it deserves. The storyline is terrific. 2 generation told story. The first being the senior actors conflict. Sunil Dutt and Vinod Khanna as father and son, where Sunil Dutt is strict on his high status tradition. Vinod Khanna and his friendship with Anupam Kher (Sunil Dutts enemy). Vinod falls in love with Anupam Khers sister Rambha and makes her pregnant but is forced to marry Ashwini. Both give birth to sons. Second generation is Aamir Khan who's mum Rambha dies and lives with Anupam Kher and Saif who lives with his mum and grandpa with a easy rich life. Both start realising they are step brothers and the hatred starts. Great acting by Aamir Khan and Sunil Dutt. Vinod Khanna was alright, Saif Ali Khan was still new at the time and was OK, The girls were fine. Music is decent and the overall movie is entertaining. It could of been better, needs a lot of editing (3hrs 15+) and a few scenes could of been changed around.
Izzatdar is a great movie and is very underrated in Bollywood. Dilip Kumar is fantastic and gives a splendid performance. His character has shades of the "Angry young man" that Amitabh portrayed. But Dilip is the angry old man in this film. Govinda who also gives a great performance is the angry young man in this film. The bad guy in this movie was very good. He was quite different compared to the typical bad guys in 80s bollywood. Madhuri looked beautiful in this film and does give a good performance. Otherwise Anupam Kher was another superstar in this movie. I really liked this film a lot. I i recommend this to anybody who hasn't seen this film to give it a go.
Haatim Tai (1990)
I loved this when i was a kid
Haatim Tai is a famous character originally from a arab district who was known for being brave, wise and having a great deal of hospitality. Some say its a myth and some say its real, but this is the Bollywood MOVIE version. Haatim is played by Jeetendra who delivers a average perfromance. Hatim is not suppose to be a loud, superhero angry young man type guy, so Jeetendra did do a okay job. Satish Shah who also is a main lead in this film was quite funny. The film is entertaining if you are young and maybe if you are older too. Im sure it will Not appeal to anybody anymore as the graphics are very weak. Hatim Tai does have some interesting quest/adventures in the film. I think there is good morale and good potential in the seven quest Hatim has to complete. Its fun, dangerous and adventurous. In that year, Most Bollywood producers did Not spend a lot of money on graphics and therefore This film fails badly in graphics.
Chandni Chowk to China (2009)
Fantastic entertainment was what i expected.
I got to see this film in the London Premier and i am the first person on IMDb to review this. Well what can i say apart from the fact that this is a non stop entertainment movie for little kids. Akshay Kumar is fantastic in many movies and is possibly his biggest disaster. First she made Om shanti om and then Bachna ae Haseeno, Deepika looks beautiful and is making good films. Mithun is back, the veteran was always loved in bollywood and does a good job in this film. Gordon Lui was great and its amazing to see both Indian and Chinese stars together in one film. This movie has some action and comedy but is a disaster. Do not watch this movie as it is a big bore and is a complete awful
Awful, boring & Worst film I've seen in years
I wish i can give this film a big zero if IMDb allowed me to and if they had the option. Let me briefly tell you what this film is all about and you tell me if this film is good. Its about Salman Khan who sits down in a lounge after doing a concert and suddenly Katrina comes in. She mysteriously sits next to him and turns her laptop in. As usual Salman will try and flirt with her, and she decides to tell him a story. The story is about these 4 or 5 guys who work at a call centre. They all have some very minor every day problems in their life's. The films starts getting very slow and boring. Next thing you know you closed your eyes and then you open them and its almost 2 hours gone in the film. You see them in a car about to fall. They think they will die, but they receive a phone call that is apparently from god. God tells them that they should be grateful to be living. This is reminding me of a Hollywood film Saw, where Jigsaw killer does a similar thing. Anyway suddenly they start changing their lives all because of the phone call. Next thing a sleepy bored looking Salman Khan tells Katrina, who is she and Katrina does not answer. She disappears and guess what, Salman's bodyguards didn't see any girl. She was probably god, what the hell is this garbage. Anyway Sohail and Sharman are usually funny and try their best but still were poor. All other girls gave a disgraceful performance. Amrita's was playing a humble wife was a bore to watch. Anyway this film is a poor poor poor poor poor show all the way.
Sunny D is Supaman + Krish. BORE
Firstly this film is a sham, The director promoted this film with top actors in the front poster cover, but they were hardly there.
Heroes is another disgraceful movie from the director that has made 3 films so far. Kyun Ho Gaye na was a Super Flop and Nanhe Jaisalmer was a disastrous flop. Heroes is another poor movie that is so boring i fell a sleep in the cinema. The beginning of the film was funny and kept you watching for a bit. Sohail Khan was having fun with Amrita Arora who i had fun with a few years ago. Anyway my point is the film had a little comedy in the first 20 minutes but later tried to be serious but did not work.
They are making a film about Why not to be in the army. The reasons were great in my opinion. Its no point wasting your life for the Prime Minister, let him fight his own war. If the PM tells you that your neighbours are terrorist then why do people follow? Majority of the world know that India government is high on corruption i.e.Rang de Basanti. So whats the point.
Anyway, Sunny Deol is another reason why this film failed. He has ruined so many films in the past with his over the top nonsense action scenes. He punches brick and breaks them, He is a mix of Superman and Krissh but a human form. When will he realise that he is disgracing himself and Bollywood in the UK.
Mithun was good, im a fan of Salman, but he was terrible. Sohail was good in the first half, Riya usually looks sexy but this time looked average, Preity was average, Dino and Bobby? Are they in the film cos i cant remember.
DO NOT WATCH. Ultimate bore
If Aamir does Not Win Best Actor for this then the Awards are a disgrace
Brilliant, Amazing, Fantastic, Terrific are some of the words i will use to describe this film. I've seen Memento in cinema and found it very good and i thought Ghajini which is a remake wont be better. I was wrong about that, Comparing Ghajini with Memento is like comparing Godfather with The Da vinci code. Ghajini is different and way better then Memento. This film deserves to win Best Film, Best actor, Best actress and best villain. The newcomer Asin who plays a stupid character in the film does a superb performance. I normally hate actresses when they act immature like Kareena Kapoor in many films or even Rani (my favorite) in Bichoo. Asin is a professional. When i saw the villain of thus film, i thought why did they cast this nobody, but once again i was wrong, the villain was great. Aamir Khan worked very hard for this film and he gave a tremendous performance. This is among the Best Aamir Khan movies in his career. Must see.
If Anybody did not like this film, its maybe because you have bad taste.
Cheap Rip off Hollywood Movie Toy Soldiers
Andaz looks like a seemingly fun loving Bollywood film with top stars in this film. It is directed by David Dhawan who made many Hit movies in the past. Sadly the film is a complete bore with predictable and often cheap humour. The comedy is immature and looks like the script of a 7 year old child's. The movie stars Anil Kapoor who tries his best to be funny, but with a weak plot he couldn't save the film from being a Flop. Karishma Kapoor plays another unrealistic character like her usual roles and once again is a little irritating. Juhi chawla does look quite pretty and she does act a little good but her role is quite weak. The remaining supporting actors are average like Kader Khan and Shakti Kapoor. Raj Babbar was awful as the villain. The ending of the movie was a copy of another Bollywood Film Kranti Kshetra (1994) Mithun starrer. Which is also a copy of Low grade (But Fantastic) Movie Toy Soldiers.
Fantastic. Underrated movie
This film came out the year i was born in 1985 and i saw it on 2005 when i was 20. At the time i wasn't familiar with Rati Agnihotri cos I've only seen Coolie 30 times. I've seen her in very few films like Boxer and Zindagani and the recent Hum Tum and Yeh hai Jalwa. After watching Tawaif i have realised that she was a amazing actress. She is beautiful and talented and enacted the role of a tawaif (prostitute) superbly. This movie is among Bollywood's underrated films which won only 2 awards that year. Rishi Kapoor delivers a good performance, Poonam is alright, kader Khan is good in a brief role, but Rati stole the show. I rate this film highly as it has a little comedy, Family drama, emotions and romance.
Great movie yet quite dull ??
Subhash Ghai is back after a string of flops Yaadein, Black and white and Kisna. He has made classic films like Karz, Hero, Meri Jung, Karma, Ram Lakhan and Khal Nayak. His latest film has its highs and lows but it mainly has highs and is a overall good film. Basic storyline of 3 brothers , One is mental Anil Kapoor, One is Salman Khan who left his home 15 years ago and the other is the naughty son Zayed Khan. The storyline is partly about their relationship on how they don't care about each other and how or if they bond as brothers, when they come together. They do come together when their father passes away and they want to know who inherits the billions of pounds wealth. Salman Khan delivers a splendid performance and plays his part well, Zayed Khan is great at times and decent at times. Mithun is in this film for a few minutes and the veteran does a good job. Katrina Kaif finally has a better role then usually and does a OK job, but she badly needs to improve her Hindi dialect. Anil Kapoor is fantastic as the mental brother, Does not overact, he is just about right. The movie is quite brilliant, They could of added some more dramatic scenes, but a few boring unnecessary scenes spoils this from being a SUPER HIT.
Pyar Jhukta Nahin (1985)
Before Raja Hindustani there was Pyar Jukta Nahin
I have always been a big fan of Mithun movies in the 80s and I've never seen this film till yesterday. Fantastic movie with superb performances. The storyline is almost similar to 1996 Super Hit film Raja Hindustani. Raja hindustani copies this film a lot. Mithun delivers a amazing fantastic performance and is among one of his best performances as an actor. I never found Padmini to be a good actress but after watching this movie she did a terrific job. Danny plays her father in this movie and yet does a fine job. This is a lovely romantic film with a lot of emotions and good music. This is a fine movie that i highly recommend.
Bombay 405 Miles (1980)
Entertaining Masala film
I saw this film yesterday on youtube that somebody posted with the name mumbai 405 miles. I expected this to be a movie i will watch 15 minutes of and then skip it as their are 100s of movies to watch. This film got interesting after 10 minutes in fact. Amjad Khan is at his best again and Bollywood miss him as the classy villain. A classic actor that portrays a bad guy role very entertainingly. The film stars Vinod Khanna whom i was not that much a fan of but he did do some good acting in this film. Shutrungh Sinha is a actor i always hated apart from Amitabh movies he co starred in and Khudgarz. After watching this film, i have to be honest and say he can do comedy and is not that bad of a actor when he wants to be. Zeenat Aman is a talented actress and is very sexy and beautiful in this film. This film is like a comedy love triangle between the three stars, with a lot of humour, action and some good family melodrama added in. The movie is about the two thief buddies who find a little girl whom they consider will bring them fortune as she is a rich mans daughter and later bond with. This is a good film
fairy tale + Bollywood masala = Maharaja
Maharaja is a exceptional movie made by Director Anil Sharma who makes many big films. Its a little bit of a fairy tale of Govinda who is a gifted child who has powers which include hypnotising animals. The movie is just not about Govinda and his powers, but has some revenge storyline involved. The bad guy in this film kills Govinda's mum, dad, grandma, auntie and even two little girls. Its rare to see Govinda in a serious action role that Amitabh has played in the past of the angry young man type character. Govinda does a good job, although he is not angry through the whole film. The title song is brilliant sung by the great Udit narayan. Govinda delivers a fine performance in this movie and should of played more serious roles. Manisha is OK, The bad guy in this film gives a good performance as the cold blooded disturbed sick bad guy. This film would of been a Super Hit, but it does have some flaws. The graphics are not great at all, where Govinda communicates with animals looks like a clip of a wild life documentary. The middle part of the film, based in the jungle is slow and a little boring. The love story part is poor, but the action background overall is a decent entertaining movie.
Mazaa Mazaa (2005)
What is this..a kids film or adult film.
Looking at the storyline, you can easily say it is a copy of Hollywood film 13 going on 30. What i don't understand is if the director is making an erotic film because it does have some love making scenes. Or maybe this movie is aimed at children since it has many childish scenes. The Hollywood version was obviously a flop, but this version is a little more worse. The girl in the movie gets bullied for being ugly and in the climax we don't see no kind of vengeance whether nice or naughty. Apparently her neighbour has a magic potion that makes you big, but once the potion is used how comes she, her rival and her friend get big too. The movie has many stupid scenes, it seems like a 5 year old handled this project. The main actors are a bunch of little kids who save the day, hunt the bad guys miraculously and very appallingly (In this one scene). Anyway, this film is suppose to be a low budget Grade B Movie so no surprise. Payal Rohatgi delivers a bad performance playing the role of a adult with a 15 year old mind. She is suppose to be 15, Most 15 year olds are a little mature, but she acts like a 3 year old, that doesn't seem to understand Life. Its not her fault its the director i guess. But, she dresses and looks very sexy so who cares about her acting. There are hot scenes by a newcomer Nepalese model Shivani Singh. Shivani looks very sexy and I sure would like to get naughty with her.
Fun and Good thriller.
Vaada was a Flop in the box office, but it was entertaining. It tells the story of a Blind man Arjun Rampal, who finds his wife (Amisha Patel) dead. The police are investigating what has happened and they lead to a suspect Zayed Khan. What follows is a series of cat and mouse games among the two stars. I don't think Arjun and Zayed are good actor's at all. After watching this movie, I think this and Yakeen is Arjun's Best Film. Zayed Khan shows of a bit too much, but he does perform a good act in this film. He doesn't copy Shah Rukh Khan's style of an obsessive lover as Shahid Kapoor does. Finally the actress Amisha Patel hasn't got a lot of scenes in the film, but she does appear in flashbacks. Her acting is quite good but unnoticed. Thanks to her sexy dance and amazingly body, that i sure would like to dance with. Who cares about her acting as long as she shakes her curves in the dance sequences. There are many fun and entertaining scenes. This is worth the watch and does have a good twist at the end.
