Yipeeee! 100th post & it’s on one of the most special movies ever, Shree. All you readers, thank-you so much for the support :).
Shree, released on April 26th with a mixed response. A lot of critics & Tv fraternity loved the movie, the lead actor’s (Hussain Kuwajerwala) honest & brilliant acting and the gripping nature of the movie. I got a chance to watch this movie in Mumbai.Here’s my review-
Have you guys ever read Agatha Christie’s novels? The thrill & mystery element in her books keep you hooked till the end. That was my first reaction as I finished the movie. A sci-fi movie tag was enough to get me excited about the movie and the movie totally lived upto the genre. It kept me hooked & made me guess till the land moment; and I ended up loving the movie.
The movie starts off with a story of a common man Shreedhar Upadhaya who works as an accountant in an MNC. A girlfriend, her mother’s constant demands & the pressure to get married and be rich, everything every common man living in Mumbai wishes for. He gets a tempting offer from Randhawa to trade 12 hours of his life for 20 lakh rupees, but he doesn’t know what he is expected to do. The only thing he is assured is the work is not bad, it’s just huge. In a matter of few hours, Shree’s life is a mess. He is accused of murder of the Police Commissioner & he doesn’t even know why. A series of twists n turns tell you the movie is about science, time fissure and time travel & you are totally blown out of your minds. Yet, you cannot predict the end & the movie will make you play the guessing game!A Bollywood movie, new cast & crew and such a brilliant thought theme; kudos.
Performance of the Crew– The movie has few numbers mostly used to support the movie, and hardly get any attention. Though the ending credits promotional song ‘Phat Gayi’ could have been better, considering Hussain K is a powerpacked dancer; but it was a good change anyways.The dialogues are pretty okay, though at times you want something more; something out of the bolt to boggle your mind. The movie is made on a low-budget which does show at a lot of places, especially missing of an art director. The sound mixing is average, though I liked the background score used in the starting credits of the movie. The story was pretty gripping & must have looked 10 times better on paper, because of the genre. You need a lot of explanations, twists, which do get neglected in a mere 2 hour movie. Overall, a good work by the crew considering everyone was a first timer.
Performance of the Cast– Now this is my favorite part. Hussain Kuwajerwala is a STAR, indeed a ROCKSTAR. He is the shining star of the movie with his more than extraordinary acting. Right from playing a common man to a person who is accused of murders; Hussain plays each part so convincingly that you feel it’s all happening right in front of you. You can feel the honesty of the character, of the actor throughout the movie. And the last scene before the end credits roll, you almost see a Superstar driving his way to fame, yes, Hussain looks that good. Anjali Patil fails to impress with her shrill over-the-top shouting in the movie. Shivani scores a decent score with her subtle acting. Paresh Ganatra totally floored me with his style, and performs his part really well. Rest of the characters do their role as required, with no major flaws & totally supporting the movie.
Overall, if you want to watch a different Bollywood movie, watch Shree. If you want to watch a movie where you gotta use your brains, watch Shree. I’d get you 100 reasons to watch Shree; so better watch it ;).
Rating– 4/5 (extra 0.5 only because of Hussain K’s acting)
Love is not rocket science, it is just feelings. It is the happiness the other person brings in your life with their presence. Love may be devoid of words but it fills the life with emotions. Love does not think if life will be comfortable after settling down. Love does not think before falling in love & love does not think after falling in love. And those who follow the path of love stay happy, no matter what the conditions are.
Yes, that’s what “Barfi” is. The movie revolves around 3 characters- Barfi, Jhilmil and Shruti. It brings about a story from the 1970’s in the cities of Kolkata and Darjeeling. It expresses the feeling we love, the feeling we detest, the feeling we hate at times, the feeling called “Love”; in the most beautiful & simple form. The movie brings out the essence of Love without the need of words, the pure innocent smile & the beauty of trains. You won’t hear too many words through the movie, but you will feel a lot. This one is for the heart, for the emotions & for Love.
Coming to performances, I felt each and every actor has given an excellent performance. The music takes the movie to another level. Phir Le Aaya Dil was the high point of the movie for me, and it just touches your heart very strongly. There are parts when the movie is slow, there are parts where you feel it’s nothing out of the world but as the movie ends; you are on an emotional high. A brilliantly potrayed movie with moments of Awww-ness.
This movie makes you think on how the essence of love has changed. How we need words to love & how words also fall short to love. A sweet, simple & a heart touching story.
Overall, a must watch for people who think their heart deserves some love every now & then.
“Love thy with all my heart. Love thy like my own heart”
I never knew what it was to be madly in love, to be crazy, to love someone with all your heart, to be a fan until 9 years back I saw HIM. I found my crazy, insane, bubbly side because of him and I shall love him for eternity for that. His innocence and his smile spelled their magic on me and there was no looking back. Even today, I can stare at him and get butterflies in my stomach when I have to meet him.
He is none other than “H.U.S.E.I.N”. I am sure almost all of you knew, if you know me since a while. He started off with his TV career where I saw him initially and then moved on to do dance shows, ultimately doing a Live entertainment show “Zangoora”. As every other person who is related to the entertainment industry, he too wished to make it to Bollywood someday. I have been closely following him since so many years, and I know that he is very talented and hard working. He is someone who deserves the best and no I am not being biased. If there is something wrong, I shall directly say it (even he knows it).
The big leap has finally come. Husein is doing a movie, though it’s a very small budget suspense thriller kind of movie. But he is going to be making the big shift, no matter the cast or any other aspect. The movie is titled “Shree” and is expected to come out at the start of next year. And this news makes me soo soo happy. As an ardent fan, I feel proud of my love and just want to wish him lots and lots of GoodLuck. I know whenever it hits the screens, it shall make his fans proud of him (Oh it shall defo make me proud). And I am so going to do the first review on it on this blog, which already makes me so excited. Just sending lots of prayers, good wishes and positivity to my love for all the success that he deserves and shall get with god’s grace. I love him, and I know I shall always love him.
My Love for him is just so special. Beyond words, beyond eternity.
