Thackeray
(2019)

Poor Direction in the End of the Film
***SPOILER IS IN BOLD***

The film was supposed to be an excellent one...the direction was good throughout the film...but poor direction in the end (NO...A 2ND INSTALLMENT FOR A BIOPIC IS REALLY NOT NEEDED) makes it a mediocre film...Nawazuddin's performance is brilliant, as always.

Shah Jahan Regency
(2019)

A 'Modern' Adaptation of The Acclaimed Novel
The 'modern' adaptation of Mani Shankar Mukherjee's acclaimed novel 'Chowringhee'.

Direction: Usual Srijit Mukherji style, but could have been better.

Acting: A mega star cast movie. Everyone performed so well. Notable mention - Swastika Mukherjee.

Music: All of them are very much related to the movie plot and nice composition. Best track - "Kichchu Chaini Aami", the female version.

***Minor Spoiler Part***

The final conversation scene between Abir Chatterjee and Parambrata Chatterjee in the elevator was little confusing. Audience already found out what happened. Did they talk about anything else? We don't know, because only their expressions were shown on the screen with sad background score.

Zulfiqar
(2016)

Excellent Performance by the Whole Cast
Letting Dev play the role of a dumb is an excellent decision by Srijit Mukherji. Otherwise he could have ruined the entire movie with his power of delivering the dialogues. Anyway, excellent performance by the whole cast.

Dhananjay
(2017)

A Must Watch Movie for All
One of the best Bengali movies in recent times. This is must watch for everyone, specially for those who heard the news of Hetal Parekh murder case (March 5, 1990) for which Dhananjoy Chatterjee was hanged at Alipore Jail on August 14, 2004.

The film shows how the judicial system of our country worked (or still works) for rich people and the poor got suffered (or still suffers).

Sacred Games
(2018)

Anurag Kashyap Is The Masterchef of The Dish Called 'Crime'
If 'Crime' is the name of the dish then Anurag Kashyap is the masterchef in India. Simply WOW!!! Excellent performance by the whole cast. Can't wait for season 2.

Deadpool 2
(2018)

Funnier Than The First Part
Funnier than the first part. The 'Baby Hitler' scene in the post credit is simply a LOL moment.

Sanju
(2018)

Controversial Topic Handled Nicely
The controversial topic handled nicely by director Rajkumar Hirani and a brilliant performance by Ranbir Kapoor make it a strong contender for major Bollywood movie awards of this season.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
(2018)

Worst 'Jurassic Park' Movie Ever
The worst 'Jurassic Park' movie ever. The franchise should end now.

Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran
(2018)

Based on One of the Proudest Moments of India
A well directed movie based on one of the proudest moments of India, the first successful nuclear test at Pokhran, Rajasthan in 1998.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout
(2018)

'Ghost Protocol' Is Still The Best 'MI' Movie
'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011)' is still the best 'Mission: Impossible' movie, I think. Anyway, didn't like it much.

BlacKkKlansman
(2018)

Incredible Story Nicely Directed
My pick for next year's Oscars' Best Picture winner. Incredible story, nicely directed and the tribute in the end showing actual footage was hard to digest.

Sairat
(2016)

Greatest Marathi Movie Ever Made
"Cast System" - the biggest problem in Indian society. A romantic story shown in the most simple and realistic way. And the breathtaking climax...

This is the first Marathi movie I have ever seen and truly deserves the "Greatest Marathi Movie Ever Made" tag. Love to see more Marathi movies.

Andhadhun
(2018)

One of the Best Indian Movies in Recent Times
One of the best Indian movies in recent times. Excellent direction by Sriram Raghavan and outstanding performance by Ayushmann Khurrana made this film worth watching. I'd love to watch this film again and again.

For me, this is the BEST MOVIE OF 2018!!!

Padman
(2018)

A Must Watch Movie for All
Thank you R. Balki for making this film and the social message. A must watch movie for all.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado
(2018)

We Can Expect A Third Installment
The first installment was better. This one is good, full of actions and we can expect a third installment from it's ending.

They Shall Not Grow Old
(2018)

Peter Jackson Never Disappoints
The film deserves an Oscar nomination this year just for the technology used behind turning the 100 years old footage back to life. Peter Jackson never disappoints.

Gold
(2018)

Story Was Interesting but Process Was Not up to the Mark
A message to Bollywood movie directors - When you're making a film based on a true story, please keep the historical data accurate. That'll ultimately raise the standard of the film.

1. Team members' names are different. 2. In 1948 Olympic, India beat Great Britain in the final by 4-0, not 4-3.

...and yes, those boring stupid songs were really not needed. Or, at least include some good songs, if you really have to.

Story was interesting but process is not up to the mark.

Roma
(2018)

Nicely Directed Film with Some Cool Cinematography
Nicely directed film with some cool cinematography. And Yalitza Aparicio's performance is simply WOW!!! Deserves an acting nomination at the Oscars. Probably this year's Oscar winner for Best Foreign Film.

The Accidental Prime Minister
(2019)

The Best 'Directed' Biopic Made in India
I don't know what is the 'Truth', but from a neutral point of view this is what I have to say about the film:

1. One of the best 'Directed' Indian movie in recent time and probably the best 'Directed' Biopic made in India.

2. According to IMDb, this is the first project of director Vijay Ratnakar Gutte. I would definitely love to watch your next project.

3. Hats off to the Casting Directors of the film - Raj Kamal and Vicky Sidana and Makeup Artists - Mangesh Desai and Shrikant Desai. All the characters look so real in the film.

4. This is how a Biopic or a film based on a true story should be made. Each and every small details, historical data, years are mandatory in this type of films and director VRG handled it perfectly.

5. There is no song throughout the film. Only one in the end while showing credits and behind the scene footage. An Indian movie without some boring songs - this is what I love to see and I hope people who care for genuine good movies would agree with me.

6. Anupam Kher's performance as Dr. Manmohan Singh is too good and deserves some recognition at the National Film Award this year. Probably the winner.

7. Excellent background score.

My Ratings:

Anupam Kher's performance - 10/10 Vijay Ratnakar Gutte's direction - 9/10 The film overall - 8/10
