Theatre review



'Dil Tho Bachcha Hai Ji'
Written by Imtiaz patel
Directed by:Dhiraj Palshekar
Cast: Ali Asghar, Arya Rawal Bharbhaya, Prasad Barve, Monaz Mevawala, Sanjay Bhatia, Raju Lodhia
Produced by: Raju Lodhia, Ali Asghar
Rating: * * 1/2

A contrived comedy, this sitcom like theatre has a businessman rekindling his love for his harridan wife by having an affair with his dumb secretary.
The problem here lies in the fact that the businessman( Ali Asghar) doesn't even like his secretary(Monaz Mevawala) , in fact has only derision and derogratory remarks to describe her skills and only gets the idea of having an affair when it's planted into his head by a lax subordinate who
 is merely trying to keep his job in spite of his tardiness. So when the businessman changes tack and decides to wine , dine and bed his secretary it comes as a contrivance that is just not believable. The farce continues on till the secretary decides to go for the kill and starts creating problems for the businessman and his wife.

poorly written characters, ridiculously plotted and shabbily directed, this play may tickle your funny bone only intermittently. And all thanks go to the Ali Asghar who is fluid and consummate with his skills -enough to overide the dull levity of the enactment. producer Raju Lodhia essays four bit roles to save himself some money I guess.

#TheGoodDinosaur(English/Animation/3D) Rating: * * * ½  Perfectly stylized and inventively Substantiated Animation adventure. Comely and immensely appealing.

#HateStory3(Hindi) Rating: * ½ An erotic revenge thriller that goes through the regular motions to establishes itself as a skin flick rather than a thrill flick. #SharmanJoshi #KaranSinghGrover #ZarineKhan #DaisyShah #ParullGossain  #TSeriesFilms #VishalPandya #AAFilmsNationwide #PriyanshuChatterjee #VikramBhatt #Runtime: 133 mins

Kajarya के लिए चित्र परिणाम#Kajarya(Hindi) Rating: * *1/2   Thinly plotted social drama tries hard to put the issue of ‘female infanticide’ on the map but it doesn’t evoke any great feeling of revulsion(as it should have) because it all plays out in predicative and stagey fashion. #HardlyAnonymous #MadhureetaAnand #StarFireMovies #EkaaFilms #OddjointFilms #MeenuHooda #RidhimaSud #SumeetVyas #KuldeepRuhil Runtime: 132 mins
