Film Review: ‘Dream Girl’

By Neha Bora

Dream Girl’ is the story of Karamveer, a man who possesses the ability to sound like a sweet voiced woman. So, when he is down with debt, and gets an opportunity to work in a special call centre that caters to needs of lonely(read desperate) men and also women looking for company he strikes golden ,and becomesPooja. Pooja is great at conversation and quickly becomes popular with the customers. Eventually, the clients fall in lovewith Pooja. But, soon, the lives of his many lovers (including his own father and fiancée’s brother) begin to interest and a commotion follows. 

Let’s begin with the statement that Bollywood’s comedies are usually insulting to the common sense of the average person. This is also because comedy is difficult to understand as a genre in any form of art. So, Bollywood and as a result its regular audience feels that being funny is equivalent to being insulting towards anyone less powerful. 

Bollywood therefore generates what we generally call ‘leave-your-brains-at-home’ comedy. But, it feels great to be part of the audience that gets to witness cinema changing in a way that a man responsible for the comedy in films  like ‘Jabariya Jodi’ and stars like ‘Sudesh Lahiri’ are also writing comedies like ‘Dream Girl’. 

The film isn’t free from the stereotypes and insults or from the masculine narration that we have seen in Raaj Shaandilyaa so far but it is bettercomedy.

Dialogues like the two-pronged ‘Karam hi Pooja hai’ or the Pooja azaan nikli’ generated massive laughter and not the kind where some might feel uncomfortable.

There are some really smart one-liners that enable the audience to laugh at itself in good humor. 

There are surprising tributes like Anu Kapoor dressing like and alluding to the Rahul of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, or ‘Baby Doll’ or ‘Oh La La, Oh La La’ being played in the background (both Balaji Films Productions). All of these allusions are fun to spot and don’t take away from the narrative.

The film starts creating humor out of the ever-present ‘Band’ outside Karam’s house playing out popular tunes according to the moods of the characters, somewhat like ‘Maya Memsaab, but the film forgets about it half-way and I feel, losses an opportunity.

The Meet Bros and Abhishek Arora give us an average albumwith party songs like Jonita Gandhi and Nakash Aziz’s ‘Dil Ka Telephone’ and ‘Radhe Radhe’ by Meet Bros. 

Also, thank you for not giving us an ‘item song’. ‘Dhagala Lagali’ is a high energy promotional song and is supposed to be a replacement for the ‘Punjabi Rap’ that is the trend in Bollywood’s present times. 

THE STORY is new and fresh on the surface but, the age old tale of a man going about his life in the world of other men in essence. But, yes, the story is well told! 

Stories and ideas and music, etc together make a film and to recognize this fact in Bollywood, where gods are made out of celebrities, is worth noting. 

Ayushmann Khurrana seems to believe in the medium of the story, the role of the director, the power of an idea, and has time and again shown an artist’s courage of being part of films that were a risk and for that alone he deserves a mention.

He is wonderful in the film, and while several actors like Ritesh Deshmukh and Govinda have been cross dressers in films before, Ayushmann Khurrana’s character isn’t a cross-dresser, nor does the film explore this idea or the idea of sexuality (despite Nidhi Bisht’s character also falling for Pooja), he is just a man with the ability to sound like a woman and he is entertaining in every bit of it. 

Anu Kapoor(Karam’sfather and Pooja’s lover) is extremely funny throughout the film,

Vijay Raaz (lover no. 1) is extremely entertaining with his ‘shayari’ but his character tries to generate humor with the stereotypical idea of the ‘afflicted husband’. 

Nidhi Bisht (lover no. 2) could have been very funny instead of being very loud has a comic character been written for her.

Manjot Singh gives an effortlessly funny performance. Raj Bhansali (lover no.3) and Abhishek Banerjee (lover no. 4) are a delight to watch.

Nushrat Barucha’s Mahi does nothing for the film because somehow women aren’t comic characters in Bollywood. 

Watch it with friends and family and have fun! You are most likely to laugh!

What has attracted the interest of the viewers is the innovative promotional techniques being employed by the moviemakers. The movie has a character of ‘Pooja’ who does shows on the radio. The character of ‘Pooja’ is played by Ayushmann Khurrana.

 

The movie presents a comic commentary on genderideals and masculinity norms. It breaks many a patriarchal barriers.

 

Moreover, this new promotional idea is a winner. The indian cinema goers have been getting calls from Pooja herself, and that has generated a lot of fan following.

 

Ayushmann has already proved himself in the film industry and has a huge fanbase. This unique promotional style has already won heart and the movie is expected to do well even before it’s release.

 

We worry about Nushrat Barucha, though. She seems to be playing the same role over and over again, in all her movies.

However, Dostana 2 is coming up with a completely different cast. Kartik Aryan, Janhvi Kapoor and debutant Lakshaya have been roped in for the movie.

Karan Johar shared a post on Instagram announcing the new face Lakshaya.

While the 2 make actors in Dostana only pretended as homosexuals, Dostana 2 will feature Kartik and Lakshaya openly as gays.

This movie has a lot on stake, both entertainment and social message wise. India, recently decriminalized Section 377 which now allows the same gender people to have consensual sex but the society still needs some time to accept it without any judgments.

Dostana 2 featuring Kartik Aryan is a big boost for his career. He is already working on multiple movies and being a part of Dostana 2 will definitely help his career graph.

Film Review: ‘Chhichhore’

Film Review: ‘Chhichhore’

By Neha Bora

Chichore, a word that is used extensively for “boys” who are not well-behaved or who don’t follow rules but you’ll never hear this word once in the 146 minutes long runtime of movie with the same title. Keep on reading to know about Film Review Chhichhore.

So why it is called chichore ? Well that question hardly stikes you and even if it does then it doesn’t bother you because you have got enough moments in the film to think of rather than figuring out why it is named chhichore.

Nitesh tiwari the guy who struck “Gold medal” with his first movie is back again. This time not with an established superstar, not with a success story and with a non-holiday release.

And the biggest risk that Nitesh takes with this film is it’s plot, which is exactly opposite of his first Blockbuster.

The story of chhichore revolves around Aniruddh played by Sushant singh rajput and Maya played by Shraddha Kapoor who have separated after marriage. They are both trying to prove each other’s fault during which their son tries to commit suicide when he comes to know that he has failed in IIT entrance.

While the doctors are trying to cure him with medicines and even surgery. Aniruddh tries to get him back to life with typical bollywood formula. What follows after is a two hour long stretched version of 3 idiots’s “Jaane nahi denge tujhe” and “Jo jeeta wahi Sikander” mashup.

What works for Chichore is it’s rawness, it’s not covered like other college dramas. It is unapologetic about the stupidity of it’s situations and characters on a level that after a while you start loving it.

Talking about the performance the biggest let down for this flick is it’s lead pair Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor. You can still see MSD in sushant while he is walking in his campus, more over that he looks like a guy high on testosterone injections in his 40s. I personally don’t know why Shraddha Kapoor after her so many performance failure’s is still “in demand”. She is the weakest actor and character in the film .

But what works for the film is it’s supporting cast Varun sharma, Naveen Polishetty, Tahir raj bhasin, Tushar pandey, Sharash shukla carry this film on their brilliant performances.

The film also stars pratik babbar who surprisingly looks like college version of “Sonu Sood villainism”. Mohammad samad who plays the son of the leading duo is good in his parts.

While the actors have done complete justice to their characters (except the lead duo) the fact that none of them looks like a first year student may bother you. It would have been better if the director had used a younger cast.

Apart from casting the most flawed thing about the film is it’s screenplay which is consistently inconsistent. It rushes in first 30 minutes then suddenly drops in second half and then picks up the pace. Unlike dangal this movie is not that good when it comes to evoking emotions. Read till the end to know what’s at the end of film review Chhichhore.

The one good thing about the writing is the screen space, almost every character has got enough time to prove its importance in the storyline. Tahir raj bhasin’s character is one of the things that saves the movie from its lead actor’s ordinary performance.

Talking about direction, Nitesh tiwary this time tries to do something that is exact opposite of his earlier flick. This time he is explaining you the importance of losing instead. And in this process he doesn’t lose you even in the dullest moments. And that is where you know that this man is not an one time shot. He is here to stay for a long time.

The only thing that you will badly miss in this film is the music, pritam’s music and amitabh bhattacharya’s lyrics surprisingly don’t weave the magic one expects from the duo. Except Khairiyat( which is there in the film for just 10 seconds) there is nothing good to remember about the album. Filmi Files are the best place to check out movies reviews online.

At last we would say that Chhichore is not 3 Idiots but it is also not SOTY, it carries a philosophy that we very often see in bollywood movies or in cinema general. It doesn’t have any heroes or villains, it has memories that are enough to keep you engaged in it for more than 2 hours. Hope you like the complete film review Chhichhore.

Go watch it with your friends and chhichoras.

Michael Jackson: The Man, The Myth, The Legend

Who isn’t familiar with Michael Jackson? The 20th century the biggest pop star has left the world but his legacy still continues. People from all over the world was aware of his music and dancing skills in the late 90s and early 20s but this generation sure would’ve heard about him from their parents or probably seen his work via Internet.

With all this fame, controversies also never seemed to leave him alone. In his ever changing life, his facial surgeries remained constant. Some surgeons even claimed that MJ might have gotten a dozen plastic surgeries.

His colour, nose, jawline kept on changing in every music video. But the biggest setback for everyone was the time when 2 of his team’s members who worked for him accused him of molesting them when they were 7 and 10 years old.

The court dismissed both the cases however, it left the fans horrified and Netflix also released a documentary series where the 2 victims tell the shocking details about MJ’s abuse. It is titled “Neverland”. Upon the release of the series, MJ’s family filed a case against it stating it as a Public Lynching.
