Hasee Toh Phasee (2014) - Movie Reviews

Hasee Toh Phasee (2014) Rating is 3.10/5
Ghisa Pita formula gets a fresh coat of paint in ad-filmmaker Vinil Matthew's feature debut, 'Hasee Toh Phasee', a not-always-convincing but seldom boring romantic comedy. For the most part, Matthew and writer Harshvardhan Kulkarni stay away from standard tropes of Bollywood love triangles, choosing quirky humor over sappy sentimentality to endear their protagonists to us.I'm going with three out of five for director Vinil Matthew's 'Hasee Toh Phasee'. Despite its problems, it's pretty good fun. Go see it.
-Rajeev Masand
HASEE TOH PHASEE dares to be distinctive. This one's *not* merely about opposites falling in love. This one's a quirky love tale involving two individuals, shades different from the mundane stuff on matters of heart. On the whole, HASEE TOH PHASEE is a bright-and-breezy, charming and refreshing rom-com that makes you smile, laugh and gets you moist-eyed at regular intervals. A qualitative film that warms the cockles of your heart. Go for it!
-Taran Adarsh
On the whole, Hasee Toh Phasee is for the classes more than the masses. However, its very poor start on the one hand and the looming opposition of Gunday next week on the other will tell adversely on its overall performance at the box-office in the final tally.

Heartless (2014) - Movie Reviews

Heartless (2014) Rating is 1.80/5
There's no denying that Shekhar borrows from AWAKE, but he gives an altogether different spin to this genre. Let it be known that HEARTLESS is not the usual run of the mill love story, nor can you guess what's in store as the plot thickens. At least those who aren't aware of AWAKE wouldn't be in the know of the basic premise of the film. On the whole, HEARTLESS is made with a lot of heart, but appears partly engaging. Shekhar Suman, the director, knows his job, but the writing lets him down. However, what you carry home is the wonderful performance by Adhyayan.
-Taran Adarsh
The film, nicely adapted and understated deals with the disturbingly real phenomenon of anesthetic awareness in which surgery patients, though paralyzed are conscious of everything they are experiencing including pain. It's an absorbing thriller. And one doffs one's hat to Shekhar for handling this difficult subject with such finesse. Though lavishly mounted, the first half is routine with emphasis on the rich-boy-meets-poor-girl angle. Post intermission, the real plot is unravelled. Though the twists in the tale rest largely on a dry medical fact, the film becomes a thrilling roller-coaster ride with terrific punches.
-Meena Iyer
Shekhar Suman's directorial debut Heartless, starring his son Adhyayan Suman, would have been the butt of his own jokes in the immensely popular 'Movers and Shakers' back in the day. Eventually, 'Heartless' lacks any sort of pulse and does much harm to Suman's television legacy, something that he must conserve wholeheartedly. For our sake.

Babloo Happy Hai (2014) - Movie Reviews

Babloo Happy Hai (2014) Rating is 1.5/5
On the whole, though bold and rather brave to base a film on AIDS and relationships, with excellent cinematography, the makers could have done with a better screenplay, with more details on dialogues and better comic gags. The archaic and no-longer-funny one-liners are a sore thumb that seldom draws out a laugh.
-Bollywood Hungama Team
Is Babloo an entertaining mass-market film for youngsters or made with a serious intention to fight AIDS and look after its survivors? The film faces an identity crisis. It implies a tension between the filmmaker's vision and the genre's demands, diluting its core purpose. The subplots and songs are entertaining but don't add any value to the narrative and there lies its fault. You also wonder why it has been promoted as an adult comedy! Also, the title bears no relevance to the story. Babloo Happy Hai encourages you to be cautious without being preachy. It's fairly entertaining but loses focus and wanders around aimlessly, just like its protagonists' road trip.
-Renuka Vyvahare
All in all, Babloo Happy Hai is an attempt to be 'cool'. And when the movie switches tracks, it almost seems like a docu-drama than anything else. Sachin Chauhan, the man behind the dialogues unfortunately does a sad job here. The truth of the matter is that Babloo may be happy, but the audience won't be.

One by Two (2014) - Movie Reviews

One by Two (2014) Rating is 1.80/5
One By Two tries hard to break the mold of Bollywood rom-coms, but seldom offers scenarios or characters that are refreshingly original. A feisty young girl whom Amit dates on his mother's insistence steals the film in only a couple of scenes. She's got what the film badly needed - oodles of spunk. I'm going with one-and-a-half out of five for Devika Bhagat's One By Two. To quote a song from this very film: I'm just pakaoed!
-Rajeev Masand
ONE BY TWO is miles away from cliched Bollywood fairy tales. While Devika reserves the best for the second hour, it's the first half and chunks in the post-interval portions that create a total mess, making you restless in the process. The story hardly moves in the first half. The post-interval portions do raise the barbut the writing lacks the power to keep you enthralled through and through. On the whole, an out of the box film like ONE BY TWO has some engaging moments, but they are few and far between. The excessive length and the slow pacing also play a spoilsport.
-Taran Adarsh
Mid-way through One by Two, an exasperated ex-girlfriend screams at the still-besotted boyfriend whom she recently dumped: You are so boring. Aur toh aur tumhara naam bhi boring hai. I felt her pain. Boredom weighed me down too as I watched this film. The story by writer-director Devika Bhagat isn’t half-bad but these characters whine too much to be interesting company.

Jai Ho (2014) - Movie Reviews

Jai Ho (2014) Rating is 2.70/5
For all the references to the aam aadmi and the solutions it offers to inspire change, this film ultimately is about the victory of a man who lets his fists do the talking. Muddled message there. I'm going with two out of five for Jai Ho. It might have its heart in the right place, but the brain appears to be missing.
-Rajeev Masand
On the whole, a noble, well-intentioned message narrated in an entertaining format in a Salman Khan movie, who, as we all know by now, is the much endeared hero of the masses, makes JAI HO a sure-shot winner. In fact, it won't be wrong to state that JAI HO easily ranks amongst Salman's better films. This one has the potential to emerge a Blockbuster at the box-office.
-Taran Adarsh
Jai Ho is not a well-scripted film but Salman Khan proves that he is bigger than the script. Salman and his action make this film an entertaining fare for the single-screen cinema audiences and the masses but the response from the multiplex-frequenting audiences will be mixed. Worldwide distributors Eros have paid a fortune for the India and Overseas theatrical distribution rights and they may just about break even but the distributors of the individual circuits, who have acquired the distribution rights from Eros at crazy prices, may not prove equally lucky.

Yaariyan (2014) - Movie Reviews

Yaariyan (2014) Rating is 2/5
The first half of YAARIYAN has its moments of fun, although the narrative tends to go astray at times. However, the writing gets consistent in the post-interval portions. The mountain biking race as also the rock climbing contest is the mainstay of the film. They are brilliantly executed! Prior to that, the tender moments shared by the lead pair works decently well too. On the whole, YAARIYAN has a gripping second half, smash hit musical score and the youthful romance that should lure and entice its target audience -- the youth. A treat for youngsters and young at heart!
-Taran Adarsh
Yaariyan is the spectacularly inept debut of Divya Khosla Kumar. This film is so bewilderingly bad that it hooks you - you keep watching just to see where the incoherent narrative will go next. The plot is foolish. The characters are vapid and the dialogue, superbly comical. it’s stuffed with banal but infectious songs that lodge themselves in your head. I’m going with one star.
-Anupama Chopra
On the whole, Yaariyan has ordi­nary entertainment value but its super-hit music is its trump card. The film will, therefore, appeal to the youth and prove to be a plus fare. Its superb opening is a big plus point.

Dedh Ishqiya (2014) - Movie Reviews

Dedh Ishqiya Rating is 3.70/5
The film’s crackling humor, set to Bhardwaj’s terrific dialogues, is its biggest strength. From laugh-out-loud punch-lines to cheeky repartee, Dedh Ishqiya has some of the most inspired writing you’ve seen on screen recently. Dedh Ishqiya gives the UP badlands a light cloak of humor and, to the viewer – we’re happy to note – a bold reveal that is more suggested than emphasized. I’m going with four out of five for director Abhishek Chaubey’s Dedh Ishqiya. Like heady wine, it delivers a welcome kick.
-Rajeev Masand
While ISHQIYA was earthy and rustic, one gets to witness an alternate universe in DEDH ISHQIYA. There are layers to the story that baffle you. This time, it's even more dicey and perilous. On the whole, DEDH ISHQIYA is a worthy follow up to the widely admired ISHQIYA. Powerful writing, superb direction and outstanding performances make DEDH ISHQIYA a must watch. Just don't miss it!
-Taran Adarsh
 Director Abhishek Chaubey’s new installment in the adventures of the lovable rogues - Khalujan and Babban - is rich in atmospherics and poetry. I also struggled with the Urdu - it was melodious but I wish I understood more of it. Still Dedh Ishqiya is worth watching just for Abhishek Chaubey’s ambition and boldness. This is not a director constrained by the demands of the box office. I’m going with three stars.

Dil Darbadar - PK (2014) - Lyrics

Hai maun mein doobi duniya
Tera qissa kaun sunaaye
Jo kahe, tujhe na jaane
Jo jaane, keh na paaye

Khwaabon ka musafir navazina kaafir
Saaiyaan ye bata de kahan hu main aakhir
Ye kaisi hai teri aankh micholi
Mujhe ghar le ja humjoli
Dil darbadar mera dil darbadar
Dil darbadar mera dil darbadar

Tu mera hi saaya
Main teri hi chaaya
Main tere bina zaaya
Ragon mein bahaa tu
Nazar mein rahaa tu
Magar na nazar aaya

Tujh se hi chal ke main guzra
Tujhpe hi aa thehra re
Tu mujhko main tujhko
Jaata kya hai mera
Ye kaisi hai teri aankh-micholi
Mujhe ghar le ja humjoli
Dil darbadar mera dil darbadar
Dil darbadar mera dil darbadar

Main shaakhon se toota
Hawaoon se rootha
Udaa ja raha hoon kahaan
Aa jaaun kahin main
Khilunga wahin mein
Mile mujhko tu jahaan

Aa mil ja mujhse me kabse dekhun teri raahein
Beeta ek arsa main tarsa ab khol de baahein
Ye kaisi hai teri aankh-micholi
Mujhe ghar le ja humjoli

Dil darbadar mera dil darbadar
Dil darbadar mera dil darbadar
Dil darbadar hai..
Darbadar.. darbadar dil hai
Hai dil darbadar
Dil darbadar hai...

Bhagwan Hai Kahan Re Tu - PK (2014) - Lyrics

Hai suna ye poori dharti tu chalata hai
Meri bhi sun le araj mujhe ghar bulata hai
Bhagwan hai kahan re tu
Hey Khuda hai kahan re tu

Hai suna tu bhatke mann ko raah dikhata hai
Main bhi khoya hun mujhe ghar bulata hai
Bhagwan hai kahan re tu
Hey Khuda hai kahan re tu

Aa...
Main pooja karun ya namajein padhun
Ardaasein karun din rain
Na tu Mandir mile, na tu Girje mile
Tujhe dhoondein thake mere nain
Tujhe dhoondein thake mere nain
Tujhe dhoondein thake mere nain

Jo bhi rasmein hain wo saari main nibhata hoon
In karodon ki tarah main sar jhukata hoon
Bhagwan hai kahan re tu
Aye Khuda hai kahan re tu

Tere naam kayi, tere chehre kayi
Tujhe paane ki raahein kayi
Har raah chalaa par tu na mila
Tu kya chaahe main samjha nahin
Tu kya chaahe main samjha nahin
Tu kya chaahe main samjha nahin

Soche bin samjhe jatan karta hi jaata hun
Teri zid sar aankhon par rakh ke nibhata hun
Bhagwan hai kahan re tu
Aye Khuda hai kahan re tu

Hai suna ye poori dharti tu chalata hai
Meri bhi sun le araj mujhe ghar bulata hai
Bhagwan hai kahan re tu
Hey Khuda hai kahan re tu
Bhagwan hai kahan re tu
Hey Khuda hai kahan re tu...
