Mardaani 2014 Movie Review and Trailer #RaniMukerji

Movie: Mardaani (2014)

Cast: Rani Mukerji, Tahir Raj Bhasin
Genre: Action, Drama

Mardaani (2014) is an action thriller based on events from a true story. It revolves around a female super cop who tries to track down and capture the leader of a human trafficking gang that specializes in prostitution. 
Mardaani addresses issues of societal rot and inhuman abuse of women and how the women can face and fight back such issues. It focuses on the hidden power of a woman as an equal and sometimes more powerful and resilient force in society.
Rani Mukerji has given a very strong performance as a cop. She doesn't overdo the role and looks believable. Tahir Raj looks evil and very despicable as the negative lead. He shines through very strongly and doesn't let Rani over shadow him.
This movie is a must watch and should be seen by all women as an inspiration.

Rating: 3.5/5

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (2014) Movie Review and Trailer #sincity

Movie: Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (2014)

Cast: Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Ray Liotta

Genre: Crime, Action, Thriller

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is a good sequel to Sin City. It is a crime thriller that boasts slick and dark action with sexy moves and a good story-line. The use of black, white and red provide for an attractive viewer experience enhanced by the presence of Jessica Alba and Eva Green. The masculinity of Mickey Rourke and Josh Brolin brings about a very bad-ass feel to the movie. Love being the real villain in the movie has perhaps the most impressive role to play.
The cast is huge and they have performed to their best abilities. Jessica Alba looks uneasy and is not as hot as people often expect her to be. Eva Green however is dark and mesmerizing and has bared it all with quite an impressive affect. Her natural attire is definitely one of the highest points of the movie when it comes to its appeal for the audience. Mickey Rourke performs a role he was born to play and Josh Brolin is as hunky as ever. Bruce Willis and Ray Liotta can at best be described as guest stars who bring value to the movie on the whole.
All in all Sin City: A Dame To Kill For does not disappoint as a feature film and fans of cinema should give it a go.

#Disney Khoobsurat (2014) Movie Review and Trailer Starring #FawadKhan and #SonamKapoor

Movie: Disney Khoobsurat (2014)
Cast: Fawad Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Kiron Kher
Genre: Drama, Romance

Disney Khoobsurat is a remake of an old Bollywood flick by the same name that starred Rekha and Ashok Kumar. The 2014 version however stars the newest heartthrob of the subcontinent Fawad Khan alongside Sonam Kapoor and the duo create some Disney style magic on screen.
A true Disney Tale, Khoobsurat is set in a royal environment of the Rathor family with grand locations and palaces. The Royal family is very aptly cast and the characterization of both Fawad and Sonam is flawless.
Fawad Khan looks the part as the enigmatic prince charming who personifies class and stature and is also exceptionally good looking. Fawad's undeniable looks have once again made him capture the audience through the entire screen time that he was provided by the script. His role is very well played and written and he looks very very attractive and leaves a lasting impression with his soft yet powerful performance.
Sonam, I thought contrary to popular belief, has really produced the best performance of her career thus far. She brought out the craziness that Milli possesses in a way that was the demand of the script. Her role makes the distinction of Royalty and a misfit perfectly clear and also brings laughter and freshness to every scene that she is in. Apart from the performance itself, it must be said that casting Sonam for this role or writing such a role for Sonam was an amazing decision because Sonam herself is known for being erratic with what she says and does and most of what she says makes very little sense. I thought that Sonam Kapoor's performance in Khoobsurat was outstanding and could even be award worthy. A special note of appreciation should go to the dress designer for Sonam who contributed heavily to the character of Milli and brought the real Milli alive. 
Kiron Kher as Manju was exceptional and hilarious in Khoobsurat and lifted the entire movie to a different level of comedy. The spontaneous dialog delivery from Kiron made this a role worth remembering for times to come.
Disney Khoobsurat is not only a sweet comedy but also a very well made movie with strong script and characters. It is an entertainer worth watching with the family.

Anna Nicole (2014) Movie Review

Movie: Anna Nicole (2014)
Cast: Agnes Bruckner, Martin Landau, Adam Goldberg
Genre: Biography, Drama

Anna Nicole (2014) is a biographical account of the life of one of the most exuberant and over the edge model and actress from Hollywood. She was born Vicky Lynn and aspired to enjoy the limelight of Hollywood from her childhood times. The movie beautifully portrays her rise and fall in the modeling and acting industry with strong references to her drug abuse, motherhood, relationships that led to her eventual demise.
Agnes Bruckner dishes out a natural and outstandingly enjoyable performance as Anna Nicole Smith. Her dialect and body language is mesmerizing. She brought out the personality that Anna Nicole stood by and was popular for by acting out perfectly as an intelligent yet troubled model who wanted to reach the top and enjoy the lifestyle she thought was appropriate for her. Agnes Bruckner flaunts her assets and talent to bring to the screen an amazing portrayal of the true starlet that Anna Nicole was.
I recommend all movie buffs to give it a go.

Fury (2014) Trailer and Preview

Movie: Fury (2014)
Cast: Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman
Genre: War

Brad Pitt starer Fury looks like an epic war drama on the same lines as saving private Ryan. The trailer looks sharp and promises strong performances from the likes of Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf. The budget and the scope of the movie appear to be of grand proportions and we should expect a war classic on the cards. If the sound is as good as the camera work then this should be a movie people would talk about for the next few years at least.

O21 (2014) Movie Trailer and Preview

Operation O21 HD Official Pakistani Film Trailer [2014] Shaan Shahid, Aamina Sheikh by Funmazaa

Trailer: O21 (2014)
Cast: Shamoon Abbasi, Abdullah Ghaznavi, Shaan, Aamina Sheikh
Genre: Thriller

O21 (2014) Movie Trailer looks very sharp and it seems that finally Pakistani cinema is moving towards films that represent Pakistanis as nationalists and heroes rather than just glorifying the slums, corruption and terrorism that surrounds the country. Much like Waar, O21 seems to be a pro-Pakistan action thriller that shows how technologically apt and intellectually equipped Pakistanis are. Also it seems that there is an effort to differentiate Pakistan from Afghanistan which is an urgent need of the day.
