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 Nithya 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.

Film Review: Jabariya Jodi

Film Review: Jabariya Jodi

By Neha Bora

Generally I review or even simply decide how I feel about a film based on the premise that the film wanted to be good. The director wanted to tell a compelling story, the artists wanted to create good work. But, don’t be fooled dear audiences, Jabariya Jodi, by Prashant Singh, has no such ‘Jabariya’ ambitions.

It is an average story of a rowdy young man, Abhay Singh, places his ambition ( ‘kursi’ ) before the girl ( reduced to ‘sex’ or ‘bistar’) while at the same time kidnapping men seeking dowry and getting them forcefully married (Jabariya Shaadi) to the woman whose family has paid for the groom.

The story is also about rowdy young girl, Babli Yadav ( although you will not know her profession or qualification even after the end) who has no ambition other than getting married ( you might know her from all of Parineeti Chopra’s films before.)

Notice, that I do not mention the practice of ‘Jabariya Shaadi’ above, because even though the film claims to be based on the concept, it never once tried to explore the practice and it’s consequences.

Jabariya Jodi is a badly written film, where none of what happens is happening for any other reason other than the fact that someone wrote it that way. It looks like Sanjeev Jha took stereotypes of every kind and churned this script.

The men of this film are controlling and morally unstable who take what they want and when they cannot they are failures. The only two women characters are ambitionless except in respect to their relationship to the men in their lives.

This film tries to be a comedy and like most hindi comedies fails to be so without being sexist, racist, and insensitive.

It places it’s modernism in unnecessary places like in between a song of separation and sadness, where, in a still shot, Abhay preaches gender equality.

Even after the film poster clearly shouted it’s Bihari nature with the ‘maar bilawa ke’ slogan in the background, not once, during the entire film do I feel like the story takes place in Bihar.

The DoP doesn’t make the effort, the costume doesn’t make the effort, and most of the actors have definitely not even tried.

The music is also average with on cue falling-in-love songs, separation songs and of course the mandatory rap/remix at the end which I have come to dread in the extreme.

There is also a ‘Jilla Hille La’ remix at the beginning which might not be more but definitely as annoying as the original.

The performances are average to bad with only two actually good performances. Let’s start with he bad and make our way up!

Parineeti Chopra plays the same, fantasy girl with a tough persona and a soft heart. She does nothing that u haven’t seen in ‘Ishaqzaade’ or ‘Suddh Desi Romance’ or ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’.

Siddharth Malhotra does more of the same too, with a little try at bad comedy. Both the actors have been part of the industry for some years now, and both of them are still doing what they were doing then.

Sid in Student Of The Year was a good looking jock who finds it difficult to express his feelings,and in Jabariya Jodi, he is a good looking thug who finds it difficult to express his feelings.

Parineeti was an electric small town girl who loved and over looked her lovers obvious faults in Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl and she is a small town girl who loves Abhay despite his total disregard for her self respect.

Javed Jeffrey is an all time personal favourite but doesn’t do much in the movie because he has been written into a bad character in a bad script. Sheeba Chaddha is a most talented artist but has been rendered almost mute and insignificant in the film.

Sandeep Mishra is the only relief in the other wise dragged film. He is convincing both as a father of a rebellious violent daughter and as a middle class professor from Bihar. He is excellent and under-used as always.

Aparshakti Khurana, ‘tera time aayega’ because you are so easy to watch and believe and you got people noticing and fan base slowly building up.

This film was probably supposed to be a fun romantic comedy with a little social message to deliver.

Comedy comes from understanding the society that you eventually want to amuse at the exposing their own shortcomings, hence it requires clever writing which Jabariya Jodi isn’t. The romance was killed by Parineeti and Siddharth and the, unseemly choices they make about their lives.

The social message can only ever be delivered evenly slightly when it is at the core of the narrative, if not focus, but ‘Jabariya Jodi’ is disrespectful to all those men and women who have had terrible experiences with the ‘Dowry’ custom or the practice of ‘Jabariya Shaadi’.
