When Ananya Panday Did An Alia Bhatt!

By Ayushi Agarwal

Student of the year 2 actress Ananya Panday is getting trolled right and left on social media platforms.

While giving an interview to an entertainment portal, she was asked some rapid fire questions. Her answer to one of the questions left the people shocked. The question was; Which movie is overrated? To which she answered The Godfather. 

Well, Ms. Pandey are you sure you don’t want to change your answer? This wasn’t the interviewer’s reaction. It was The Godfather trilogy fans reaction who most definitely wanted her to change the answer.

She didn’t just call the movie overrated, she hasn’t even watched it. I mean, come on, there’s a saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover” which is well applied for the movies as well.

Twitter had its field day when the interview got released and some of them even compared her to Alia Bhatt.

However, it’s also wrong to judge a person by her movie preferences but we hope she watches the movie now and then form an opinion based on that.

Sacred Games 2 Gets Mixed Response

Sacred Games 2 Gets Mixed Response
 

By Ayushi Agarwal

 
The very anticipated second season of Sacred Games went live on Netflix at 12 AM on 15th August. Sacred Games is India’s first original Netflix series directed by Anurag Kashyap.
 
First season of sacred games ended up with a mystery waiting to be uncovered in the second season. The first half seems boring but it initially catches the momentum and ends with an absolute awe factor.
 
Sacred Games 2 did unfold the mystery however, it is receiving some mixed reviews from the viewers.
 
One of the viewer Ms. Shivani Grover writes,
 
“This season doesn’t justify the hype this show had. Nawazuddin Siddiqui aka Ganesh Gaitonde called himself God in the first season but in this season he is like, Who am I? So yeah it was below my expectations”.
 
This is certainly not what the makers would’ve expected. Although, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has done a marvellous job and so has Pankaj Tripathi who played the role of Guru Ji.
 
Overall, Sacred Games 2 definitely made a lot of buzzes and people are gushing about it on Twitter and other social media platforms. Sacred Games series is a must-watch if you’re into thriller and some good acting.
 
The season ended with a cliffhanger and fans are already waiting for the third season.
Watch the second season and do give your comments. Filmi Files is the best site for checking out movies reviews and latest tinsel town gossips.

Film Review: ‘Batla House’

By Pooja Chhabra

The story of L-18 presented by Nikkhil Advani in his Batla house is based on a real life encounter by Delhi Police in September 2008, after a series of blasts in country and its capital. The story was a fictionalized attempt of the actual encounter where two IM operatives were killed, one was arrested while two managed to escape. The entire story revolved around proving the encounter as real or fake. Filmi Files is the best spot for tinsel town new and gossips.

The story was narrated from the point of ACP Sanjeev Kumar, brilliantly played by John Abraham. The personal experience of Sanjeev kumar was highlighted, as well as the impact of allegations on the life of an honest police officer and his dedication of being a duty bound husband.

John has earlier worked in the films with similar genre such as Parmanu- The Story of Pokhran, Satyameva Jayate, shows his sense of patriotism in choosing the films. While Batla house was an extremely sensitive film talking on minority religion. The intensity presented by John justifies his role of the most awarded police officer with nine gallantry awards.

The other main cast consisted of Nandita Kumar, wife of ACP Sanjeev Kumar played by Mrunal Thakur, Kishan Kumar, the inspector martyred in the encounter was played by Ravi Kishan and Huma/ Victoria the dancer gave an item number Saki-Saki and led the film further was played by Nora Fatehi.

The film was engaging throughout with its unfolding of events on the political and activist front while the first half has a repetition of the events which was gratified in the second half with the courtroom and the revelations of the investigations. The film though involved prevalent religious bias which was claimed to be unbiased in making by the disclaimer.

On an overall the film cleared many perceptions living among people regarding this encounter of Delhi Police through its fictional depiction of the series of events happened in L-18 Batla house on 19th September’2008. Hence, making it a must watch for the ones interested in unravelling the mysteries.

Film Review: ‘Mission Mangal’

Film Review: ‘Mission Mangal’

By Neha Bora

Everyone at one point or another in their childhood has dreamt of outer space, dreamt of being an astronaut, dreamt of being a scientist….And the movie ‘Mission Mangal’ plays with that very sense of nostalgia. Filmi Files is the best spot for tinsel town new and gossips.

It is the story of how a group of underdog scientists achieved an impossible mission.

Punctuated here and there with a little humor, interspersed with family drama and sprinkled with little patriotism and nationalism,this movie got a big opening today on the 73rd Independence Day, and is expected to go higher from here.

There are a few ideas that the film revolves around and on the basis of these ideas the films wishes to do it’s business too.

The film opens with an all sufficient, independent woman who seems to have answers to all the question, be it of science or of the family. This is one idea.

This is one idea, i.e. the idea of the smart independent woman who overcomes society, life and work with equal grace.

The second thing of note is the fact that the Mars mission is initially named ‘MOM’ and even though it is an acronym, Dattatreya at one point remarks that had the mission been named ‘dad’ the sattelite would have been stuck orbiting the earth.

There is also a too deliberate metro fight scene between the team comprising mostly of women and a few men.

It is also not lost on anyone that the team constituted by R. Balki and Jagan Shakti is comprised mostly of women.

All of this comprises the second idea that the movie tries to evoke: the idea of the united force of women.

I really appreciate both of the above idea but I wish more time had been spent in nurturing them through the writing to make them truly effective.

The Mars mission isn’t a feat only for India, it is a feat for humanity. It is a testament to the combined knowledge and research of scientists all over the world.

It was an event for humanity and to reduce it to one country, whose government as the movie itself points out did not even release funds for it, is too narrow minded.

What else is narrow minded was the fact that everything in the movie has been simplified to a level that the struggle goes mission.

In between the struggle of the puri, and the plastic, the pregnancy and the bossy husband, everything actually like the NASA returned scientist Rupert Desai remarks, seems to be propelled by emotions and dreams, even the mission.

Nevertheless I congratulate Jagan and Balki that they could made Mission Mangal happen and I really hope we see better, sharper work in the genre un the times to come.

Surprisingly, the cast of the movie performs the same function that its fictional counterpart performs in the storyline.

Tara or Vidhya Shinde is head of the team, responsible for the scientific and strategic breakthroughs of the mission and responsible for keeping her family sane despite her bossy husband and she is also the audiences’ anchor during the film.

Rakesh or Akshay is the smart eccentric man whose family we are never given a glimpse, making him seem like a ghost that doesn’t exist.

The part of Rakesh Dhawan along with that of Tara Shinde is that of the progatonist, whose actions are justice in the light that he is the protagonist. Sonakshi Sinha and her character both come out well in their limited capacity.

Tapsee Pannu and Nitya Menen too are convincing. Kriti Kulhari and her character aren’t explored enough. Parmeshwar played by Sharma Joshi comes into the story and fades away and Dattatreya doesn’t get enough comic space.

Amit Trivedi and Amitab Bhattacharya give us two good songs and the background score too sits well with he audiences.

I ‘space experience’ that many people might be looking for is absent because the story takes place mainly on Earth and even when the mission is launched into space the effects aren’t overwhelming.

All in all, the film can be matches once, especially if it’s a holiday and friends are at hand.

Liam-Miley Make Their Split Look Elegant!

 

By Sanskriti Tomar

 

Married in December last year, in a beautiful wedding in Tennessee, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth has been the ‘it’ couple of Hollywood since the year if their engagement (2012). Filmi Files is the best spot for tinsel town new and gossips.

 

The last weekend has been a rough one for all the fans of this power-couple since they announced their breakup on Instagram.

 

Miley Cyrus, who is vacationing with Kaitlyn Carter, broke the internet with an emotional Instagram post about the breakup. They had been dating since they worked together in the movie ‘The Last Song’ and announced their engagement in 2012, but only got married in 2018. The Twitterati has a lot to say over this split!

 

Liam Hemsworth wishes Miley “health and happiness”, and he too, took to Instagram and released confirmation of the split in the caption of a picture of Sunset that he shared on his Instagram handle.

 

While Bollywood saw quite a stink in the Hritik-Sussane-Hritik-Kangana breakup sequels, the art of breakup seems to be getting better with time.

 

The Miley-Liam split is elegant and has not created any if the usual ‘much ado about nothing’. The twitter handles of magazines like Bazaar and Vogue have been tweeting about this breakup on twitter all weekend.

 

It will be a lie if we said we weren’t heartbroken by this, but FilmiFiles is hoping that a new and improved version of both the individuals will come out of this ordeal, and delight us with their own art forms.

‘Saaho’ Trailer Out, Watch This Badass Trailer!

By FF Network

High speed chase, badass action sequences, romantic numbers and straight-laced dialogues- this is what the trailer for the movie ‘Saaho’ promises it’s audience. Filmi Files is the best spot for tinsel town new and gossips.

Saaho is scheduled to release on the 30th of August this year, and it stars Shraddha Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Prabhas. This seems to be a come back for Neil Nitin Mukesh and he is seen in a rather interesting role in the trailer.

His beard is complementing his face and toning down the excessive fairness in his complexion as well. The movie seems to be yet another story of theft and chase by the secret services and undercover agents: a topic that has reached an impasse.

However, the trailer promises an ample dose of masala script, action, dialogues and the romance between Shraddha Kapoor seems to be a cherry on top.

Neil Nitin Mukesh has disappointed his fans on several occasions but this movie looks like a promising comeback for him.The FilmiFiles will be watching this prodigious son of Bollywood.

The soundtracks, playback music and special affects are promising, judging by the trailer. Let us watch out for this August-end release.
