Movies Review: Ek Tha Tiger

Movies Review: Ek Tha Tiger: The movie is about a RAW agent (Salman Khan) who falls in love with Zoya (Katrina Kaif) while being on a mission. The movie is not like Salman's past mindless comedies and inflated action flicks. However, this movie under Yash Raj banner, directed by Kabir Khan is a sober and bit sensible than others.

Tiger (Salman Khan) goes to Dublin for a mission to keep an eye on a science professor. He meets Zoya (Katrina Kaif) there and unexpectedly falls in love with her. But, Zoya also turns out be an undercover mission sent by ISI Pakistan. Then starts the conflict in Tiger's mind to choose between love and duty.

The movie is well balanced story, including love story and the spy drama. The movie has many action scenes choreographed by Hollywood stunt coordinator Conrad Palmisano. Not many of the scenes are of that variety where a dozen goons go flying in the air. But there are some overacted scenes like when Tiger jumps to a flying plane from a bike. Action scenes by Katrina Kaif are also done with full perfection.

Salman Khan after a long time is seen in a movie with a good story and acts best. Katrina Kaif as always is gorgeous and shows good acting as well as action skills. Ranvir Shorey as Salman's associate of RAW also gives a good supporting cast.

On the whole, Ek Tha Tiger is Salman Khan's best movie in recent times. Hope this movie provides him some cues to choose good stories in the future. The movie will mostly keep you involved in it and can be said as a one-time watch. TRP rates Ek Tha Tiger 3.2+ stars out of 5.

Movies Review: Jism-2

Movies Review: Jism-2: Jism-2 is a sexy movie with a good story. However, the movie is not as dirty as one is expecting.

The movie starts with a hot scene by Izna (Sunny Leone) in all red lingerie. Ayaan (Arunoday Singh) is an intelligence bureau who offers Izna to work in a special task for the bureau. Ayaan and his superior officer Guru Saldanah (Zakaria) offers her 10 crores to get data from Kabir (Randeep Hooda), her former lover, through her sex appeal. Kabir went from an honest cop to political assassin and becomes insane.

Ayaan and Izna pretends to be engaged and lives next door to Kabir, who is hiding out as a musician in Galle, Sri Lanka. During the act, Ayaan also falls in love with Izna.

Sunny Leone sometimes acts nice with her cute smile, but also fails sometimes to deliver with her acting skills. She seals the movie with a strong closing line. Randeep Hooda's acting is the strongest in the movie. After his strong act in this movie, he can be in the major league for one of the best future actors. His strong voice with perfect diction is his major plus point. Arunoday Singh sometimes overacts in the movie, specially when he confesses his love for Izna

Jism-2  has also a suspense in the end, when Izna learns some new facts about Intelligence Bureau. On the whole, Jism-2 is a story which will never allow you to leave your seats for even a minute, not only due to hot scenes, but also due to its strong story. Its not only a movie about sex, it's a movie with a strong story also. TRP gives Jism 2 4- stars out of 5!

Movies Review: Carry On Jatta

Movies Review: Carry On Jatta: The movie forwards the league of romantic comedy "Jatt and Juliet". The movie is about a bunch of lies which end in great confusion with a series of chaotic, yet comic outcomes.

Advocate Raminder Bajwa (Jaswinder Bhalla) lived with his 2 sons Goldie (Binnu Dhillon) and Sunny (Gippy Grewal). Goldie is married to Preeti, while Sunny has his own business. Rocky (Gurpreet Ghuggi) is Sunny’s best friend and son of Police Inspector Sikander Tiwana (B.N. Sharma). Rocky wants to get married to a rich girl - Nikki. However, Sunny falls in love with Mahie (Mahie Gill).

Circumstances compel Sunny to lie to Mahie, which results in a large sequences of lies with good comedy. Both friends have to hide their wives and family from each other.

Binnu Dhillon had an good chemistry with Jaswinder Bhalla, and their strong comic timings delight audiences. Gurpreet Ghuggi again proved what he is capable of. BN Sharma delivers another strong funny role in this movie as well. Gippy Grewal peformed exceptionally well in his comedy role, while  Mahie Gill acts good, but not as good as other actors.

The movie has many songs in the beginning, but that sets good tone for the remaining part in the first half.

Overall Carry On Jatta is full-on comedy movie. The last part of the movie is stretched a bit. Just go and enjoy the amazing Punjabi punches without caring for the story-line. TRP gives Carry On Jatta 3.5- stars out of 5!
