Movies Review: Tezz

Movies Review: Tezz: Tezz implies speedy and sharp. The movie is about the speedy train, but it can't be termed as a sharp story. It's just an average story.

Aakash (Ajay Devgn) with the help of Zayed Khan and Sameera Reddy set bombs on a train from London to Glasgow. Arjun Khanna (Anil Kapoor), who retired one-day before from counter-terrorism officer was called back again to investigate the case.

Tezz derives its story from the movie Speed (1994) with the basic threat that the bombs on train will go off if the speed falls below a specified limit. Most of the action doesn't happen on or around the train. The motive of these threat is a man's vengeance against a country that deported him for being an illegal immigrant and working without permit.

The action scenes as chasing Ajay, Sameera and Zayed were well shot and never appear disturbing or distracting.

As always, Ajay Devgn lives up to his role. Anil Kapoor also acted strong in his character. Boman Irani as the train traffic-control officer is amazing in his role. Zayed Khan and Sameera Reddy's roles are best till now in any movie. Mohanlal, an officer aboard the train, has less role in the movie. Kangna Ranaut's role is very limited in the movie so nothing much can be said about her acting in the movie.

At the end, Tezz keeps you engaged in the movie and its short duration will never allow you to get bore. Overall Rating: 2.9 out of 5!

Movies Review: Vicky Donor

Movies Review: Vicky Donor: The movie not only revolves around the theme of the sperm donation, but is a family entertainer also as there is no visual or verbal vulgarity in the movie.

Vicky Arora (Ayushmann Khurana) is a jobless Delhi boy with no father. He is pushed by Dr Baldev Chaddha (Annu Kapoor), an infertility clinic owner to donate sperm. After much resistance, Vicky finally agrees for some money and starts making good money out of this. He also marries his love Ashima, a divorcee (Yaami Gautam). However, when she comes to know about his sperm donations, she leaves him. But she comes back after Dr Chaddha made her feel that sperm donation is not a wrong act and helps childless parents.

The romance in the movie is refreshing with strong chemistry between the couple. The movie takes a turn, when it was showed that Vicky's fervent fertility is of no use as his wife can't get pregnant.

Ayushmann Khurana and Annu Kapoor acted brilliantly in their roles. Vicky's acting seems so natural that it never looked he is trying to over act. Ayushmann has really the strong potential in Bollywood. Yaami Gautam is also ravishing and her beauty adds charm in her performance. Annu Kapoor's dialogues incites most laughs. Dolly Ahluwalia (Vicky's mother) acting as Punjabi mother is superlative. Kamlesh Gill (Vicky's modern grandma) is a surprise package with her humorous dialogues, asking for latest iphones and LED TVs.

The movie can be called a love story with sperm donation act or a sperm donation movie with a love story.

The movie is full of strong comedy in the first half with emotional quotient added in the second half. It will never leave you bored for even a minute as the movie's duration is just 2 hours. The dialogues adds to strong humor quotient. Final Rating: 3.4 out of 5.

Movies Review: Housefull 2

Movies Review: Housefull 2: This movie is certainly less silly than Housefull 1. The movie revolves around a character "Jolly" who is a son of the a rich person in the UK, J.D. (Mithun). 

Akshay Kumar (Sunny) does a hilarious spin-off on Ranjeet who is father of Sunny. Since there are two action heroes John (Maxx) and Akshay in the movie, fighting scene becomes obvious in the movie. They were earlier best friends, then gets separated, then become friends again, just like in Desi Boys movie.

The first half has more comedy of fathers-of-bride (Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor), who want billionaire son-in-laws for their daughters, which results in comedy or errors in the whole movie. Every father takes some other groom as his son in law and then comedy of mistake starts.

Johnny Lever is the most funny character in the movie. Akshay Kumar as usual is at his best with maximum role in the movie. John Abraham has the second highest role in movie and acts nice with his comic timings. Riteish Deshmukh is too good with his stuck-in-situation expressions. Shreyas Talpade's role is short. Mithun Chakravarthy has a strong screen presence. Rishi Kapoor acts better than Randhir Kapoor. Boman Irani's role is also very short. Jacqueline Fernandes and Asin gets maximum role in the movie and did good in the movie. Though Shahazn Padamsee's role is short, but she makes a good impression in the movie. Zareen Khan seems irritating in the movie.

The movie's comedy has a wacky sense of humour, and gets unnecessarily melodramatic sometimes. If you want to watch a movie with silly comedy timings and don't have any demand for a good script, go and watch the movie. Otherwise, stay away from it. Final Rating: 2.7 out of 5.

Movie Reviews: Mirza - The Untold Story

Movie Reviews: Mirza - The Untold Story: Mirza–Sahiban is a real romantic tragedy love story of Punjab. The movie "Mirza - The Untold story" is also made on the same subject. The movie is much hyped due to Gippy Grewal, Honey Singh, Mandy Takhar and Rahul Dev.

The story is modernized by the director Baljit Singh deo, where Mirza's Bows/Arrows have been replaced by Guns/Pistols, Canada in place of Punjab, Baggi replaced by Ford Mustangs, and finally Mirza with stylish look and tattoos.

Gippy's dialogue delivery is strong along with his cool acting skills. Female lead Mandy Takhar also acted nice as Sahiban and performed emotional scenes well. Honey Singh as Deesha entertained audience very well. Rahul Dev as Jeet was at its best. Binnu Dhillon and B.N Sharma created laughter scenes in the movie.

Action Sequences were also executed well. With the strong hype around, Mirza has achieved best ever Punjabi movie opening response & is likely to break all records. Some songs of the movie are already ruling the charts, but mostly songs were only played in the background. Movie was bit stretched, a bit short could be much better. "Mirza - The Untold Story" has raised bar of Punjabi Cinema. Final Rating: 3 out of 5.
