CHOKED - NETFLIX

June 20, 2020

Money will Speak..Hear it Wisely….!!!


  • Released Year: 2020
  • Genre: Drama
  • Direction: Anurag Kashyap

PLOT

A bank employee weighed down by her jobless husband’s debts - and her own broken dreams - finds a secret source of seemingly unlimited cash in her home.

How money is important in one’s life is the main plot of the movie. There is a proverb saying, The one who gets a monthly salary is one step away from the poverty line which is applicable to all middle class people who are in need of money to run their daily life.

Many of us used to save money in hard cash at home from the salary which we get. During demonetization, many suffered a lot in terms of exchanging notes from old one. From this movie, Director Anurag Kashyap has made it remembered the days how people from poor to rich desperately required money as everyone has their own requirements of spending money.

If a working class family got hands on dirty money what they will do, they will close their debts, buy new things for their home without raising friends or neighbourhood doubts and they would also be choked with fear for having more money than before with them as evidently explained here.

There was a scene in the climax where the neighborhood people took the dirty money and not revealed it to the  Shushant’s family who are being investigated by Income Tax that shows none will come to help even if you are in need but they will use us.

Overall, Movie gave us a chance to think about spending money wisely in these tough times so that we don’t want to search for dirty money to get ourselves choked.

My VR Critique Rating: 7.9/10

  • Plot: 9/10
  • Screenplay: 9/10
  • Cinematography: 8/10
  • Acting: 7.5/10
  • Music & Background Score: 6/10

Missed

  • Music and Background Score

Not able to be satisfied with the songs, very raw and the background score did not feel good which is getting diverted from the plot.

  • Cinematography

Entire place in the movie is poorly shown which is making bore in few places and not able to differentiate the places as all places are dirty and dark. At least banks would be shown in a brighter way.

MRS SERIAL KILLER - NETFLIX

May 01, 2020

My first full page review. Please do comment..


Movie is a direct release of OTT platform released in Netflix on 1st of May 2020. Manoj Bajpayee, Jacqueline Fernandes. Mohit Raina played a lead role in the movie, and is directed by Shrirish Kunder.

Plot of the movie, A doting wife who must find a way to absolve her husband’s seriel murder charges.

Cast : Manoj Bajpayee (Mirtunjoy Mukkerjee) is a Gynaecologist having a hospital named after his wife Sona Medical Home. Jacqueline Fernandes (Sona Mukkerjee) is a Lovable wife living a happy life. Mohit Raina (Imran Shahid) did a prominant role as police cop.

Movie started with a happy tone but while after News is rushing that Dr.Mukkerjee has brutally murdered 5 single pregnant girls and the bodies was found in the doctors old isolated bungalow. He was arrested by the cop and sent to jail and whoever people of that town praised him started to shout “Hang the Killer”

Doctor’s wife with the help of a lawyer(Mr.Rastogi) tried to get a bail which was gone in the air as evidence was very strong against him, hence she tried to replicate the same type of seriel murder to save his husband with the help of the lawyer.

Mrs.(NO) SERIAL KILLER

What happens next? did she saved her husband or not? Who actually murdered all the single girls? Who is that cop?

Movie started in a way with full of suspense but in the end it went too much in taking it ahead. Manoj Bajpayee has done his role perfectly from the start to the end. second half screenplay is slow when compared to its first.

Color tone in the movie is really good, thanks to Dolby Vision 🙏 Suggesting to watch it in high definition with HDR support. Movie is released in Hindi and dubbed in Tamil as well.

As far as the concern, Movie is not upto the mark, but one time watchable if you watch it without expectation.

DRIVE - NETFLIX

April 29, 2020

  • Movie Name : Drive
  • Release date : Nov 2019
  • Run time : 2Hr 27Mins
  • Movie cast : Sushant Singh Rajput, Jacqueline Fernandas, Boman Irani, Pankaj Tripathi
  • Director : Tarun Mansukhani

Plot : Group of street racers plans to do a heavy lifting unimaginable heist.


A robbery has been encounted at a jewellery store in Delhi which was commited by a guy called King, he lefts a clue that he is going to commit a heist in Rashtrapathi Bhavan. Case was handed over to a guy called Irfhan (Boman Irani) nomitated by Prime minister office personally to handle it off the record. He along with Hamid (Pankaj) and his boss Vibha started to investicate. There is a story in parallel between Hamid and his boss Vibha who do integrity issues and a gets share from the uncaccounted money of the personals and store it in the private vault of Rashtrapathi bhavan.

Tara (Jaqueline Fernandas) aka real KING along with his team members trying to find the copy cat who did the hiest in the jewellery store. In the mean time Samar (Sushant Singh Rajput) did some fancy stunts to join their trust group and they came to know that Samar was the copy cat. They plan together to do another heist in Rashtrapathi Bhavan.

Did they commit that hiest successfully or not considering the securities of the Bhavan is the apogee.

Unbelievable story line which actually made our security check point in Rashtrapathi Bhavan looks vulnerable. CGI of entire movie is disgusting and horrible which we can easily identify and feel unbearable. Too much of light effects makes us to feel bad.

We can clearly see why this movie not released in the big screen. Obviously in the second show itself there will be show cancellation.

Biggest career damage for Sushant singh rajput and Karan Johar.

If you really wanna watch car chasing movies, best try F&F movies which are widely available which will give you goosebumps and atleast some scenes will actually make you to belive.

GHOST STORIES - NETFLIX

April 15, 2020
******Capsule Review******


Ghost Stories (2019)  Ghost Stories is an Indian anthology horror film consisting of four short film segments directed by Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee, Zoya Akhtar and Anurag Kashyap.

Four movies - The Nurse, Bird, Monster, Granny.

Story is structured in a very anticlimactic way, where the best happens at the beginning and the last two shorts feel rather thrown in but it will be a very good horror ride once.
