Good or bad, I just hope that youngsters are matured enough to understand that this is a movie and they don't conduct themselves in the manner the protagonist does in the movie. There are more people who would get attracted to bad ways of looking cool than those taking inspiration from the likes of say Bhag Milkha Bhag, Neerja, MSD etc.

Article 15

Based on Article 15 of Indian constitution, a hard hitting social/crime thriller by Anubhav Sinha raises pertinent points about Indian social setup. Whether one likes the film or not depends on how one views the Indian society based on caste system. Story line is crisp, dialogues laced with humor are noteworthy.

Ayushmann Khurrana's film all the way.

Excellent direction by Anubhav Sinha. Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta have given commendable performance.

Ewan Mulligan's cinematography is excellent.


Rating : 4/5

Guys, am craving to go to the cinema and watch a good Hindi movie, but damn it, there has been a dry season since a while (last two good ones were Gully Boy & Uri IMHO). Thackeray, we walked out in the middle.

Now "Super 30" seems to have good reviews. What are you guys hearing? Word on the street? Any BHPian reviews? Thanks.

Cousin saw it and said by Bollywood standard it's an honest try and good timepass. Will watch it soon.

If you haven't seen Kabir Singh it's a good one too.

See if Article 15 is still on screens. It's a great watch and I did not regret a bit sitting through this 2 hour long Hindi movie.

At the moment it looks like, stay at your desk and give us the Compass Trailhawk and Hector reviews. :

On a serious note Article 15 is good. Off late I would watch Ayushman, Rajkumar Rao and Vicky Kaushal movies without a thought. They are supremely talented.

Article 15 = 3.5 stars.

The only negative being the romantic track that adds nothing to the storyline.

Brilliant performances all round.

^ Thanks guys!

Super 30 = 3 / 5 stars.

Worth one watch, especially because it's inspired by a true story. But it's not a "theatre" watch per se, you could even wait for it to hit the television.

First half was good, but the second gets slow, even boring at times. Some parts over the top too. A good reminder of how fortunate we are to have what we do. There are so many who don’t have access to basic stuff and yet struggle and fight it out in this world.

Hritik has acted very well. I'm a bigger fan of Pankaj Tripathi though.

Watched Kalank last Saturday on Amazon Prime - 2/5

Performances by the star studded cast have made the film watchable which otherwise has nothing in it. The larger than life artificial sets was really bad and unnecessary IMO. to put it in simple words..."Too much is too bad"

Arijit's title song is nice but all his songs sound the same

Watched Super-30. Honestly, its a very average movie. I feel that Hrithik, though a handsome man and a great dancer, but has very limited acting skills and overacts a lot (pun intended). Never in the movie he looks natural unlike other actors, esp. Pankaj Tripathi. Hrithik’s dialogue delivery feels like he is putting a lot of extra effort which spoils the natural feel n flow.

As GTO says, first half is okay and sets up a good premise for the other half, but sadly the movie loses steam just after. The movie could have been made a lot better. At the max, I can rate it as 2.5 on 5. Not worth a watch in theatre.

With such a dry season of top-class Hindi movies, I thought I'll watch an evergreen classic.

Gangs of Wasseypur 1 & 2 on Prime Video . Top class movies. If you haven't already, watch it and be wow'ed!

Trivia: Was supposed to be a single 5-hour long movie, but was sensibly split up into two parts.
