#BestFilmsReviewsThisWeek23rdSept2016 #JohnsonThomas #IndiaInADay(English) Rating: * * * A day in the life of a people from across a vast country, this crowd sourced footage documentary gives you an unstinting picture of the joys and sorrows of a people beleaguered by troubles yet finding joy in the simple mundane routines of daily life. Ordinary filming equipment,365 hrs of footage from all corners of the country shot on 10th Oct 2015, this realtime portrait is surely the true picture of an India churning through it’s myriad contradictions. #GoogleEarth #MAMI #RichieMehta #AnuragKashyap #MAMIFilmClub #AnupamaChopra #KiranRao #Star #Google #ScottFreeProductions #MandiraChauhan #NinadKulkarni #SatpalSharma #JackArbuthnott #DonnaChang #RidleyScott Runtime: 86 mins #Parched(Hindi) Rating: * * * A realistic take on the trials and tribulations that women have to encounter on a daily basis- in their efforts to find their true selves in a patriarchal society, this film set in Jaisalmer has a well knit script, wondrous performances &stunning cinematography to complement the story but the instinctive empathy that should have been there is sorely missing.

Funnier than the previous edition, this one has a wilting Bridget(#ReneeZellweger after her alleged cosmetic face sculpting) laying an old love(#HughGrant) to rest while ‘fling’ing between old love Mark(#ColinFirth) and new love Jack(#PatrickDempsey) in an attempt to get to the truth about her soon-to-be-out baby’s real daddy.The writing is fluid and the run of play is quite unexpectedly entertaining. And #EmmaThompson as the gynaecologist handling Bridgets’s pregnancy is toungue-in-cheek howlarious. #EmmaThompson #MoesArt #IshaDoshi #UniversalPictures #JascintoFernandes Runtime: 123 mins

#PicksAndPiquesSnippetFilmReviews23rdSept2016 #JohnsonThomas #Banjo(Hindi) Rating: * * ½ Unbelievable FANTASY involving a Banjo Player from Mumbai slums and an international DJ from New York. The unlikely pairing of #ReiteshDeshmukh #NargisFakhri doesn’t quite work in the film’s favor and the music-which essentially should have been the soul of the film , falls flat.

It’s a fickle and over-ambitious remake of the Gujrati superhit #ChelloDivas and gains it’s inspiration from #Israeli filmmaker #BoazDavidson’s hits ‘#LemonPopsicle’ and ‘#HotBubblegum’ that went beserk in it’s efforts to contain testesterone fuelled male risque behavior into a cult legend.

This animated film that has Storks flying packages to a retail chains’ customers is wildly imagined and reasonably entertaining. Obviously this one’s not gonna gain much at the Boxoffice. It’s no wonder that #WarnerBrosIndia continues to keep the critics away from it’s previews. #WarnerBrosIndia #WarnerBros #AnkitAgarwal Runtime: 89 mins #IndiaInADay(English) Rating: * * * A day in the life of a people from across a vast country, this crowd sourced footage documentary gives you an unstinting picture of the joys and sorrows of a people beleaguered by troubles yet finding joy in the simple mundane routines of daily life.

A farmer’s story- Sitaram with less than limited means, trying hard to meet ends and provide for his family in the wake of a repeatedly failing monsoon, decides to dig a well. Getting help though is even more complex than breaking the Kalichaat. It’s a vicious cycle of perseverance against all odds- never ending tryst with unfeeling authorities, loan sharks, and religious gurus, while keeping his family hopeful for a better future, continues. It’s gritty but pointless #SudhanshuSharma #HimanshuJhunjhunwala #DwaparMedia #GeetikaShyam #VirendraKumar #Nathenial #PrakashDeshmukh Runtime:76 mins

#PicksAndPiquesSnippetFilmReviews9thSept2016 #JohnsonThomas #BaarBaarDekho(Hindi) Rating: * * A dismal ennervating love story, this one takes time travel to a gimmicky level to arrive at it’s happily ever after. It’s ‘#AboutTime’ our film makers stuck to desi stories for inspiration. The two heartthrobs at the centre of it look good but it’s pretty much facile and uninvigorating for the viewer. No wonder the producers preferred to keep the film away from critics till it’s release day. #NityaMehra #KaranJohar #SpicePR #ErosInternational #DharmaProductions #SriRao #SidharthMalhotra #KatrinaKaif #SayaniGupta #Sarika #TaahaShah #RamKapoor #RajitKapoor #HussinaRaja #FarhanAkhtar #ExcelEntertainment #ZackNizato #reiteshSidhwani #RaviKChandran #NightEdFilms #ZeeMusic Runtime: 141 mins #FreakyAli(Hindi) Rating: * * ‘#HappyGilmore’ and #TinCup’ may have been it’s indirect influencers but this film about a goon-turned-golfing match winner is just not convincing in it’s artifice laden spiel. #NawazuddinSidiiqui may have deserved a starring role after a series of accolade winning performances but this was not it. This is at best a freak show masquerading as an infantile comedy with little to please the audience. The story is ridiculous, the performances are silly and the direction just doesn’t hold you enthralled. #NawazuddinSiddiqui #AmyJackson #SohailKhan #ArbaazKhan #SalmanKhanFilms #ParullGossainPR #AsifBasra #JasArora #SeemaBiswas #NikitinDheer #PareshGanatra #AlamKhan #JackieShroff #SohailKhanProductions Runtime: 120 mins #WrongSideRaju(Gujarati) Rating: * * * A rare gujrati film that plays out sensibly , this one is a thriller of sorts with a heavy duty love story and a knee-jerk twist plaguing it.

It’s basically yet another disgusting attempt to cash in on the infamous Indrani Mukherjea case. This #RakhiSawant starrer has little to interest the audience other than the starlet’s infamous presence. #AzizZee #RakhiSawant #ChetnaSharma #ChetnaEntertainments #AmitMehra #JimmySharma #SaniyaPannu #AvadhSharma #AakritiNagpal #AdiIrani #RajeshKhera Runtime: 140 mins

#HandsOfStone #HollywoodEnglishFilmMovieReview #JohnsonThomas


English Film Reviews Johnson Thomas Punchy but not Hard hitting Film: Hands of Stone Cast: Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramírez, Usher Raymond IV, Ellen Barkin, John Turturro, Ruben Blades, Drena De Niro, Reg E. Cathey, David Arosemena, Ana de Armas, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Óscar Jaenada, Pedro "budu" Perez, Yancey Arias, Reg Cathey Director: Jonathan Jakubowicz Rating: * * ½ Runtime: 105 mins A biopic, ‘Hands of Stone’ follows the life of Roberto Durán (Edgar Ramírez), the Panamanian fighter who, with the help of his trainer Ray Arcel (Robert De Niro) made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year old and much later, retired in 2002 at the age of 50. And throughout his illustrious career he won many big fights including the one in June 1980, when he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the WBC welterweight title. But later in the November rematch he shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner saying 'no más' (‘no more'). Jonathan Jakubowicz has a lot of ground to cover and he does it in speedy ineffective fashion. You never get to know the principal character’s motivations other than the deprivations of his early youth. The rivalry with “Sugar” Ray Leonard is hinted at but it’s not the spine of the film as it should have been. Jakubowicz cradle to retirement version depicts Durán as a scrappy kid on the streets of Panama through his rise in the sport, his thrilling capturing of the welterweight title against Leonard in 1980, his infamous fall and then his resurrection as in his triumphant return as light middleweight champion at Madison Square Garden. You also get his family life with wife and five kids, his nationalistic pride and it’s all being told from the point of view of Ray Arcel, his trainer. So the focus is all over the place and involvement is piecemeal at best. Ana De Armas and Edgar Ramirez make their presence felt and so does Robert De Niro -but it’s all to no avail because you never really get involved in what’s happening on screen. Jakubowicz’ narrative tries to do too much and as a result the gains are too little. Everything becomes a blur in the flurry to get to the finish line. So when you get out of the theatre there’s not a single memorable moment to stay with you- even though it’s all earnest and gritty! Johnsont307@gmail.com
