Gulabo Sitabo - Watched it over the weekend. It is good one time watch, though I won't rate it as a very spectacular movie due to a poor ending and a bit too stretched at times. But surely one can watch it over a weekend or so.

Rating - 2.5/5

Gulabo Sitabo

Wonderful film. Loved it thoroughly and enjoyed till the end. Reminded me of the stories of misers, crooked fellows & what-nots we used to read in books and short stories in our childhood.

Fantastic performances by the 2 leads and ably supported by the entire supporting cast, although it's Amitabh's film for the most part. The begum is the piece de resistance, though.

A nice, welcome change from the recent drab Bollywood has been churning out. I would love to watch it again.

Bulbbul

With a runtime of around a hour and half, this leaves an impact with you for at least 30 minutes after the end credits are over.

It's a very grim fairy tale but deeply rooted in horrific reality. Full marks to the cinematographer who has captured the actual essence of this gothic story with some beautiful blends of colours and angles - the night sequences shrouded in ominous, foreboding red in particular stand out.

I felt it needed a slightly stronger performance from it's two male leads, specially the guy who played Satya, to be truly worthy. The two female leads were good but Tripti Dimri was outstanding and easily steals the show.

Keep the kids away from this one.

I watched Sir (2018) a couple days back. It can be classified as a slow burning one. However, I liked the way its directed, casting, acting by the main actors and music is so wonderful. Not all may like it and rate it has high, I'd rate it 9/10 for the reason I like such movies close to real life, this one also talks about the conditioning we go through our lives, and how are we separated by different classes created by the society. A very good watch.

Watched 'Tu hi mera Sunday' on Netflix. It's an easy, funny and a soul-filling movie in these times.

3.5/5

Any reviews for Dil Bechara? Worth a watch or waste of time? IMDB has a stupendously high 9.6 rating, but I think its because of his recent demise.

We watched it yesterday and loved it. Short movie and never felt dragging at any point in time. Very honest performance by Sushant Singh Rajput, other casts have also done justice. Felt ironic how the movie ended.

PS: I haven't watched the original movie but my wife had. She still loved every bit of it. As for me, it reminded me of 'Barfi', another movie which evoked similar thoughts.

Rating: 4/5

Dil Bechara is a nice free flowing movie. Very well put together. Decent performances all around.

"Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai" is a good watch. The actress was superb.

Spoiler alert - Do NOT read further if you plan to watch it.

I didn't quite get the physics behind the hide-black-money-in-the-drain logic. Wont the bundles pushed down the drain hole end up in city sewage / STP tank and lost forever. I saw the guy using some kinda filter, but how much of the stuff can it actually hold? Can someone who has seen this movie decipher this?

Watched Chaman Bahar in Netflix. 3.5/5. Small town story with very good acting by almost all characters. A bit controversial subject though. But worth watching it. I saw this movie just for the actor Jitendra esp after his excellent performance in Panchayat series. His eyes just talk.

Thanks for the suggestion. Same as you watched this only for Jeetu bhaiya.
Do watch Jeetu bhaiya's TVF Pitchers and Kota Factory.

I watched it on day of release on Hotstar. I did not like the movie. Will give it 3/10.

There did not appear to be any story at all. And the part of Saif Ali Khan was so ordinary. No connection felt.

Thankfully it was shorter in duration at 1hr40mins.

I liked the guy, especially the way he played dhoni. So I enjoyed watching him on the screen again after he's gone. The end, especially, sort of spills out to real life. Remember watching Dark Knight, and it hitting you only at the end that Heath is dead? Somewhat similar. The story is well played out, though sobby and predictable, but worth a watch.

I'd rate it a 3.5/5.
If you liked Sushant, then it's a 4.5/5.
