At the onset, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan had everything a commercial Bollywood film would need, be it two of the biggest action stars of the country with Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff, a director like Ali Abbas Zafar who has had a great track record in terms of number when it comes to the action genre, one of the finest actors of this generation in the form of Prithviraj Sukumaran.  But despite having everything the makers would ever need, they forgot to consider the most crucial aspect of filmmaking—the Script

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Review: The Scriptless Experiment

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Review: Writing

The plot of the film is the same as that of films like Pathaan, Fighter, Khuda Haafiz and every other film of the genre. There is literally no addition to the plot, but there is one difference. The films that we mentioned at least had establishments in terms of character development or plot points, but this film fails to do this, too. 

Two buddying cops are on a mission to stop a supervillain who has nothing but vengeance in mind and well-equipped technology at his disposal to destroy India and make it a weaker country for its rivals. The premise may have looked interesting on paper, but the execution is lacklustre at best.

Starting from random explosions to characters revealing backstories without adding anything important to the story to random expositions about the dynamics shared between characters, which add nothing to move the story forward. 

There is an instance when a character travels to Shanghai for an extremely important “intel,” only to be told that “Something big is going to happen,” and that is that. 

Tiger Shroff’s character describes the character of Prithviraj as “Pakka virgin aur Psycho Hai”; in another instance, he says, “Yeh aadmi hai ya dandruff? Jaata kyu nahi?” the film boasts of many cringe-worthy dialogues such as this.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Review: Performances

It is shocking to see Tiger Shroff being more comfortable and confident in front of the camera than Akshay Kumar. One cannot help but wonder why Akshay Kumar delivers such monotonous dialogues or why he is so stale in the film. He mostly keeps a straight face, but it is sad to see his terrible comic timing, especially when it is compared to Tiger Shroff, who has done a better job than Akshay, that too in comedy or acting. But it is quite understandable because of the writing and pitch of their characters. 

Alaya F, Manushi Chillar and Sonakshi Sinha also have the same problem of being one-toned. They add nothing to the plot and are mostly mannequins. One may start to wonder why their characters were even integrated into the story or the screenplay, as they really did not have much to do.

Prithviraj Sukumaran would have been the saving grace of the film if he had more screen time or if his face had been revealed much earlier, neither of which happened. His face is concealed with a mask, his voice has been modulated to sound robotic, which makes it more jarring than terrifying, and he breaks into random monologues about a “pralay” every five minutes. Once the mask is off and you can see his face and expression, one can realise the missed opportunity that the makers failed to see. 

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Review: Action

Action is the one thing the cast and crew of the film have been boasting about in promotional interviews, and it is safe to say that it is an absolute train wreck. The frenzied camerawork is enough to give you headaches, the moves and cuts are all over the place, there are no match cuts from one shot to the other, the set-pieces are not exciting at all, the action choreography is a mess, and there is incoherence in every frame of all the action sequences.  

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Review: Final Thoughts

The film tries to sell us what has already been sold to us, on a much better platter, in a much better way, and there is absolutely nothing to look forward to in this film that may give you an adrenaline rush or make you excited for what is to come next, it is a disaster.

Unpopular Opinions About The Batman

The Batman is getting tremendous applause from critics and audiences alike. The newest rendition based on the YEAR ONE and THE LONG HALLOWEEN comics had a tremendous weekend collection with a staggering $258 million at the global box office and has already passed the milestone of $300 million fifth day, confirming that it is being loved worldwide. 

Although there are certain people, both critics, and audience, that feel otherwise and have presented different opinions. Scroll down to read the unpopular opinions about the Batman movie.

The Batman: Unpopular Opinions From
Critics And Audience

The Batman Unpopular Opinions Number 1: Pacing and Run time

The Batman: Pacing and Run time

The film has very slow pacing with a run time of 2h 56m, which is a lot for today’s audience.

The Batman Unpopular Opinions Number 2: Underdeveloped chemistry between The Bat and The Cat

The Batman: Underdeveloped chemistry between The Bat and The Cat

Though both are great characters on their own, Batman and Catwoman’s chemistry falls apart at some crucial points. 

The Batman Unpopular Opinions Number 3: Underutilisation of supporting characters

The Batman: Underutilisation of supporting characters

Some integral supporting characters like Alfred (Batman’s most trusted ally) seem very underutilised and do not contribute to the storyline as expected. 

The Batman Unpopular Opinions Number 4: Hyper-realistic and Lacks Action

The Batman: Hyper-realistic and Lacks Action

The Batman being very realistic takes the experience and thrill of watching a comic book movie away. The film places action sequences in very few places which takes away the thrill.

The Batman Unpopular Opinions Number 5: Forced inclusion

The Batman: Forced inclusion

Joker’s inclusion doesn’t seem like a genuine story demand and is more of a forced inclusion.

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: The World Of Thrillers, Gunfires & Cold-Blooded Mobsters

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: The World Of Thrillers, Gunfires & Cold-Blooded Mobsters

A SonyLiv crime drama presenting the powerful Atwals owning a huge resort in the heart of Manali enjoying the marriage of the family’s son. The plot takes its villainous twists and turns after a patriarch shoots a tribal dancing girl under the influence of gaiety and alcohol. 

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: The world of thrillers, gunfires & cold-blooded mobsters

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: Dramatis personae

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: Dramatis personae

The script is full of a multitude of eccentric characters who are completely ruthless and thoroughly corrupt. The only innocent person with a conscience is killed in cold blood. Surya Sharma as Rinku with his sharp gangster image obviously created a lasting impact. Also, Papaji played by Harsh Chhaya as the filthy-mouthed alcoholic impresses the audience beyond measure. 

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: Good or Evil?

Perhaps, this crime thriller is not the one that would give you an easy choice between who is just or who is a criminal. This is undoubtedly an innovative way to portray how reality unfolds itself when lawlessness is the law of the land, where there is no thin line between good men and bad men. From the cops to the media persons, everyone is corrupt in the drama.

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: The post-truth era

No single person in the story is a man of integrity, everyone is fallible to the delicacies of money and power. If you are someone who seeks at least some morals, sorry to tell you, this one will disappoint you. Truth is just a matter of perspective here, untrustworthiness rules. 

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: A little exhausting at times

The first season would definitely be a wild ride where you would be constantly thrilled to know what lies ahead but certainly, the experience gets saturated after a while. It is maybe because of the constant bombardment of twists after twists that the characters make or rather it is the same chor-police narrative that is to blame. The second season feels a little stretched till the end of time. 

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: The Naxals

The show certainly did a great job in mainstreaming the Naxal ideology. As the difference between good & bad blurs, the audience is slightly invited to shift to the tribal perspective. The character played by Koyal, a tribal girl is extraordinary in depicting the rules of the jungle where the less powerful have no means but to be on a killing spree to get whatever little justice they can for the damages done to them.

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: The language 

The show depicts an influx of Bengali & Punjabi cultures. If looked at carefully, the differences between the lifestyle of these two states are clearly visible that making the show vibrant in its own way. Especially the cuss words of Punjabi are so crude that they will betray your ears. 

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: The message

Well, life is of little value when politics, money, and power proves to be larger than the humans who have created them in the very first place. People are ready to do almost anything for petty freebies. In such a world even the influence of insensitive sex & drugs appears pretty normal.

Undekhi Season 2 Web Series Review: The ending

Season 2 ended with lots of melodrama and gunshots. The bombs interspersed with lots of action sometimes appeared to be just too much but definitely not enough to deter the echo of the coming seasons if there are any in the cue. Although, that would be like asking a lot from the direction team if they have to cater to its loyal audience with the same thrill.

The stellar performances with some really good situational shenanigans make it worth giving it a try.

A Thursday: A Gripping Yet Predictable Thriller

Published

on

A Thursday

The story is about a playschool Teacher Naina, who keeps 16 small students as hostages and keeps a series of demands in return for every kid. Consequently, it becomes an emergency in the country.

A Thursday Review: Cinematography

The Cinematography is relevant to the gripping thriller with a certain subtlety. It is successful in creating a background to the plot with a little darkness and constant rain to keep the viewer engaged and let the audience wonder what might happen next.

A Thursday Review: Pace

A Thursday has a runtime of 129 minutes that feels a little exaggerated, particularly when the film delves into searching Naina’s past. Also, the film feels predictable in the end and seems a bit long.

A Thursday Review: Theme

The film raises an important issue of capital punishment for rapists by highlighting the lifelong impact on victims of sexual violence and the inability of the system to deliver justice.

A Thursday Review: Performances

There can be contrasting views, but the performances have been noteworthy. Yami Gautam proves her matte as an actor again with a fine performance that holds the film.

Neha Dhupia has again done a commendable job while playing a pregnant cop and understands her character well. Atul Kulkarni makes hard efforts to make us believe in his character but seems overdramatic at some points

Overall, the movie tries to keep the audience engaged with the viewer but feels predictable after a point. However, it successfully conveys an important theme.

Watch the film for its theme and performances particularly if you are a thriller fan.
