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.

‘Kong’ Gets Bigger And Better


By Meetali Kutty 

Title: Kong Skull Island

Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts

Actors: Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson

 It seems director Jordan Vogt-Roberts was correct when he said that his version of the Kong tale would be unlike its predecessors. This well-known story, about a gigantic ape, living on Skull Island, has been given a fresh treatment and the result is a fast paced, humorous tale that sets up the future planned Kong Vs Godzilla film.

This film is set in 1973, with America just withdrawing from Vietnam post the war. A military escort (Samuel L. Jackson),still upset at the outcome of the Vietnam War, sets off for the island with a war photographer (Brie Larson), scientists (Tom Hiddleston, John Goodman) and some soldiers to explore this unchartered territory. John Goodman’s character, Bill Randa, is a conspiracy theorist who secures funding for a fact finding mission to the island.
Luckily for the viewers, it isn’t long before they encounter King Kong (larger than ever before!) who swats at planes and lays waste to many humans. However, this giant ape isn’t the ferocious human enemy some of the explorers think he is. In fact, the island is full of fearsome creatures (and amazing effects!) like super large spiders, wooly mammoths and the Skull Crawlers, who pose an equal (if not larger) threat.
The star of the film is John C. Reilly’s character, Hank Marlow, an American soldier, who, in the prologue, was shown crash landing on the island. He has been stranded there for 30 years. Reilly’s character embodies the comedic center of the film, and has some truly rip roaring one-liners which audiences will enjoy. Tom Hiddleston is good as the dashing leading man, while BrieLarson isn’t given much to do. Thankfully the love angle is done away with, only finding some nostalgia when Kong takes a liking to her. In fact, the fleshing out of the characters in the film is sacrificed for the more exciting action sequences involving King Kong. There are also a number of side plots which tend to deviate focus from the main attraction- Kong.
This film is full of dazzling special effects. The action is rapid, with a few sad deaths of certain characters. This film also plays out as a deeper exploration on war, as well as environmental preservation and kindness as a weapon combating hatred. The breathtaking visuals will immerse the viewer and immediately grab their attention. There is a wonderful scene which showcases the arrival at Skull Island with all the helicopters swooping into formation, which is sure to draw a few gasps.
The climactic showdown between Kong and the reptile like Skull Crawlers is a riveting, if slightly long battle, that will make action fans rejoice. However, it is humans who are the true threat with their bombs disturbing the ecosystem of the island and making these Skull Crawlers rise up, and with one set of the explorers deeming Kong the enemy.
All in all, this film is a perfect set up for summer blockbusters- action packed, entertaining and a great way to spend an afternoon. A departure from past King Kong films (even excluding a visit to New York City), this refreshing new take on the tale is bigger and better. Be sure to stay in your seats for an exciting post-credits scene that will set up future monster movies.

First Look : Trailer for ‘Man of Steel’

man-of-steel06With less than a month to go before the release of Man of Steel, the maker Warner Bros has pulled out all stops to create online buzz about the movie. The latest trailer for the movie was released online earlier this week which showcased the deadly General Zod threatening to annihilate the world if Superman doesn’t come crawling to him. 

Experts believe this could be the final trailer before the actual release of the movie in June. Directed by Zack Snyder ‘Man of  Steel’ features Henry Cavill as Clark Kent / Kal-El, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Diane Lane as Martha ‘Ma’ Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan ‘Pa’ Kent and Richard Schiff as Dr. Hamilton.

Movie Review : ‘Skyfall’ (**** Four Star)

(By Akshat Sharma) As the world celebrates the Golden Jubilee year of ‘James Bond’, Oscar winning director Sam Mendes gives a delightful cinematic treat to all Bond fans with his first ever 007 flick, ‘Skyfall’.  This is the third film featuring Daniel Craig as Bond after ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘Quantum of Solace’ and probably one of the best Bond films ever made.

‘Skyfall’ is James Bond’s (played by Daniel Craig) journey towards his roots. A Bond who is matured and humane, so much so that he doesn’t mind getting overpowered by his emotions while holding M’s ( played by Judi Dench) dead body.

Like all Bond films ‘Skyfall’ too opens with a bang. It is one long chase scene on the streets of Istanbul where Bond is shown chasing a bad guy who has stolen a list that MI6 is desperate to get at any cost.  Even if costs James Bond M is willing to pay the price.

The story takes a turn when the MI 6 headquarters in London is bombed and the internal security system is breached. It forces M to press Bond into action although his Istanbul encounter has rendered him unfit for the field duty.

Bond is dispatched to Shanghai and there he gets some vital clues about the attack. In China he meets two characters, one of them is Sevriene (played by Bernice Marlohe) and the other one is Silva (Javier Bardem), the villain. Silva is an interesting character who has a funny streak in him. Like the Joker of ‘Batman Returns’ Silva looks deadly with his subtle mannerism and style.

Silva holds personal grudges against M as he is also a former agent who has worked with MI 6 during his prime. Locked in direct confrontation with M and James Bond, Silva leaves no stone unturned to seek revenge. In the process only Bond survives as M and Silva both get killed in gruesome encounter set in picturesque Scotland.

Daniel Craig as James Bond is considered as the darkest and the most unique Bond in many ways. Never before in history any Bond film has decoded and demystified Bond the way ‘Skyfall’ has done. You see him like a real person who has no pretensions of being a ‘Bond’. He still likes women but he is not a womaniser. He goes for the kill but he also cries when someone near and dear dies.

He has also become minimalist in many ways with this film. He doesn’t use fancy modern cars, hi-tech gadgets or pull of those unbelievable stunts which only he could. Daniel Craig in ‘Skyfall’ will go down in the history of Bond films as one of the most vulnerable and real James Bond.

The film will also be remembered for depicting a deeper relationship between Bond and his boss M. Judy Dench has already announced that this is the last Bond film of her career and ‘Skyfall’ gives a glowing tribute to her illustrious career in Bond films.

Javier Bardem is the most talked about actor in the movie for his role as he takes Bond villains to an iconic level. Director Mendes has pitted a villain who can give some serious competition to James Bond with his menacing acts and misdemeanor.

‘Skyfall’ also deserves special mention for splendid camerawork by ace cinematographer Roger Deakins. His camera follows James Bond’s journey all the way from Istanbul, London, Shanghai, Macau and back to the mystique countryside of Scotland using shadows and images with equal finesse.

For music lovers ‘Skyfall’ has an added attraction of the theme song by Grammy award winner Adele. Background score of the film is also commendable. If you have heard about the name James Bond and even if you remotely admire the character, ‘Skyfall’ is definitely a must watch.

First installment of the movie ‘The Dead’ was released in 2010 and it generated tremendous interest among cine goers.  Enthused by this positive response the Ford brothers decided to make a sequel of the movie.

Outlining his plans for ‘The Dead’ sequel director Howard Ford said , “Jon and I have been receiving so much enthusiasm and demand for a sequel we owe it to the fans of The Dead 1 to deliver something that goes way beyond what we could achieve first time around, and the starting point was to find the most stunning and varied landscapes where we have not seen the dead walk before”.
