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)
Shree, a sci-fi movie slated to release on April 26th, 2013 looked interesting right from it’s announcement. The movie stars popular tv star, Hussain Kuwajerwala in his debut; playing the lead character Shree.
Like I talked about Shree in my last post, finally the trailer released. Watch it here :
My take- Intruiging, mysterious and very tempting. That was my first reaction. The trailer makes me more interested in the concept, in the movie & in the actor. First of all, the sci-fi tag was enough to raise my curiosity, then this trailer has totally raised my expectations. Also, the lead actor Hussain Kuwajerwala looks pretty hot, which adds brownie points!
I hope you guys enjoyed the trailer as much as I did. Will defo post a review once I watch the movie!
Back in 2012, when news of Husein Kuwajerwala doing a movie made rounds; it was a happy moment for his fans. I had written a post here expressing the happiness and pouring good wishes for him. Finally, after a long wait, SHREE is releasing.
The movie is being released under the banner of Ciemme Entertainment. It’s Written and Directed by Rajesh Bachchani and Produced by Vikram M. Shah. They released the first look along with a digital poster video few days back.
You can watch the videos here –

First Look :
My Comments – The digital poster amazed me as it looked different. It filled me with a sense of curiosity with the phrases Science, Thriller, Trap together in a movie. It totally made me excited 😀
And the first look, I’d rather talk about the trailer in the next post about Shree!
Do leave your comments/Views about the poster and the first look. The journey has begun. All set for Shree on April 26th!
Keep spreading the word.
Kingdom of Dreams is one of its kind Entertainment come Cultural come Food destination and more. I have been talking a lot about their state-of-the-art theatre and show Zangoora here. Since this place is no less than a landmark of India, National Geographic India did featured it in the show ‘Inside’ which basically shows how was this place made, the thought behind it and the machine controls along with how the cast and crew handle the daily pressures, overcome them and emerge as winners.
I just finished watching ‘Jab We Met’ for the Nth time but it was a different experience this time. I was actually thinking deep while watching it. A lot of aspects touched my heart like anything. I could feel; the music, the happiness, the love, the pain. I could sense the aroma of love in the air. The movie spread a wave of happiness and magic on me instilling a lot of love and letting me into a stream of thoughts. Watch the movie here.
Zangoora- The larger than life dream, the magnificent view in front of your eyes, the grand Nautanki Mahal; everything exists. Now the only thing that can make this dream like place a super possibility is the Cast and Crew behind it. Although one would think that such a grand place can work with absolutely anything and everything, it is definitely not true. The mere reason is the critics and the reviews. If something is not good inside, however it may dazzle; it would not dazzle the soul, the hearts of people. It would never let people connect with Zangoora.
The mastermind behind Zangoora is a genius of its kind. Let me put down the Cast and Crew of Zangoora. I am so sure it would dazzle anyone’s heart. It would make anyone jump on their seats and go watch the show.
