Reviews round-up

Round up of recent film reviews:

Sarkar & Yakeen - by Rangan Baradwaj
Matrubhoomi - by Chugs and Jabberwock
Hazaaron Khwayishen Aisi - by Mukta
Paheli - by Uma
Paheli & Parineeta - by Rangan Baradwaj

Also, I am beginning to think Mr. Subhash K. Jha gets paid by film wallahs to idolize them in print. Check out his review, or rather unstinting eulogy of Sarkar. Having seen the movie, imho this is definitely not Ramu's "best work" (sic). Not only that, he manages to misinterpret a rather straight-forward narrative:

Into this world comes Bal Thackeray, the Shiv Sena chief who provides a parallel justice force within Maharashtra to those who cannot afford or obtain justice through official channels.

Thackeray's name is changed to Subhash Nagre. But the power and the socio-political positioning of this fascinating messiah remains unaltered in the movie version of his life.

Subhash Nagre's character (played by Amitabh) has only a superficial resemblance to Thackeray, which should be completely ignored after the first few frames of the movie. Maybe the eulogizing needed to be extended to politicians as well!


  • I cannot believe I've found someone else who has seen through SKJ! He's the worst kind of journalist one could ever have the misfortune of reading. Zero analysis, zero comprehension, and zero knowledge. He is merely a mouthpiece for the stars, who use and abuse him at will.

  • Oh Lord ! I cannot believe someone saying the exact same words that I always wanted to say about SKJ . He is nothing but a PR person for stars. I dont know how reputed publications print his so-called review and articles.
