The Big Bull Hindi Movie Review

The Big Bull - Disney+ Hotstar

About the movie

The Big Bull is a 2021 Hindi crime drama film directed by Kookie Gulati. Abhishek Bachchan plays the protagonist in the film, co-starring with Nikita Dutta, Ileana D’Cruz, Sohum Shah, Ram Kapoor and Saurabh Shukla. It is streaming worldwide from 8 April 2021 on the Indian streaming platform Disney+Hotstar.

Synopsis of the movie

Story revolves around the life of Harshad Mehta and how he becomes the Big Bull in the stock market .

Analysis of the movie

When the first look posters of this movie was released, there was a huge expectation for this movie, however as web series Scam 1992 was released and it was instant hit among the audiences, hence now the expectations to watch this movie is low among the audience.

This movie has rich production value and art department team has ensured to make this period drama look as authentic as possible.

Vishnu Rao has handled cinematography for this movie and visuals in this movie is extraordinary, especially the drone shots for penthouse is breathtaking.

Abhishek Bachchan has played the lead role in this movie and he has performed really well in this movie and after Guru, this is his best performance.

Ileana D’Cruz plays a crucial role in this movie and she has played her part well.

This version is completely different from Scam 1992 as the makers have focused on other aspects of Harshad Mehta.

Kookie Gulati could have handled other actors in better way in this movie as that was a major issue in this movie.

Ram Kapoor and Saurabh Shukla are completely wasted in this movie.

The main issue with this movie is screenplay, screenplay moves at its on pace and that makes the movie look dull and there is lot of lag in the screenplay.

There is more importance given only to Abhishek Bachchan in this movie and there is no scope for other performers to perform in this movie and they do not make an impact in this movie.

Music plays a crucial role in crime drama movie but sadly music is average in this movie, none of the background score tracks worked out in this movie and it did not help the movie in anyway.

Verdict- An above average attempt which could have been much better.

My Rating is 2.75/5

Irul Malayalam Movie Review

Irul (film) - Wikipedia

About the movie

Irul is an Malayalam mystery crime thriller film directed by Naseef Yusuf Izuddin in his directorial debut. The film stars Fahadh Faasil, Soubin Shahir and Darshana Rajendran. The film e released in Netflix on 2 April 2021.

Synopsis of the movie

The story revolves around a couple who seek help of stranger as their car broke down in middle of nowhere, who is this stranger, did they get help or not forms the story of this movie.

Analysis of the movie

The first look posters, teaser and trailer created curiosity to watch this movie mainly due to the actors in this movie as all the three actors are well known for their performances.

This is minimalist movie with only 3 characters and the movie takes place entirely in a house which enables the creators to make a thriller movie.

Music plays an important role in crime thriller movies and in this movie Sreerag Saji has composed the music and background music is terrific and it definitely boosts the impact of the movie.

Jomon T. John has handled cinematography for this movie and cinematography is extraordinary, especially the night shots which were shot with just candle light is remarkable.

Performances in this movie is amazing as all the three actors Fahadh Faasil, Soubin Shahir and Darshana Rajendran have played their roles convincingly which makes this movie watchable to an extent.

A crime thriller will work only if writing is strong, however sadly writing in this movie is weak and screenplay is poor which makes this movie look like half baked attempt as the movie becomes predictable completely as there is no suspense or thrill factor in this movie as audience is not surprised in anyway.

Climax is abrupt and director fails to establish strong reasoning as why the murders take place, there is no proper ending in this movie and the scenes could have been properly executed as movie looked like the director was in hurry to finish the movie as soon as possible.

Verdict- A half baked crime thriller movie which may satisfy fans of Fahadh Faasil, Soubin Shahir and Darshana Rajendran…

My Rating is 2.5/5

Ending Explained: New-age thriller Irul is the perfect weekend watch

Yuvaratna Title Song | Punith Yuvaratna Kannada Movie Video Song Release  On| Yuvarathna Release Date - YouTube

About the movie

Yuvarathnaa is an Kannada action drama film written and directed by Santhosh Ananddram.It stars Puneeth Rajkumar, Sayyeshaa, Sonu Gowda, Dhananjay, and Prakash Raj.The music for the film is composed by S. Thaman, cinematography was handled by Venkatesh Anguraj and editing done by Jnaneesh B Matad respectively. The film released on 1 April 2021 in Kannada and Telugu languages in theaters. This movie will be available on amazon prime in month of May.

Synopsis of the movie

The plot revolves around a death of college student, what is the reason for her death, were the college management successful in finding out the real culprits or not is the story of the movie.

Analysis of the movie

Puneeth Rajkumar is back to big screens after a gap of 2 years and in this movie he plays the role of a college student and he has lost weight to look like a student in this movie and he has performed this role brilliantly and this movie will be a treat for his fans in terms of dance, action, romance and sentiments as this is complete commercial movie with an important social message.

Santhosh Ananddram has written and directed this movie and he has tried to handle an important subject in this movie and he has been able to convey the message to an extent through his screenplay.

Sayyeshaa plays the female lead role in this movie and she is just used for few romance scenes and songs and she does not have much scope in this movie.

Prakash Raj plays a prominent role in this movie and we can connect easily with his character as we would have also had a professor like him in our college/ school days. He has performed this role convincingly.

Dhananjay plays the antagonist role in this movie and as usual he has nailed this role with his dialogue delivery and swag attitude.

Comedy in this movie did not work out due to the poor writing and scene placement in this movie, inspite of having two comedians in this movie, comedy failed to make a mark.

Venkatesh Anguraj has handled cinematography for this movie and visuals are rich and colorful, the drone shots and action scenes were shot well.

S. Thaman has handled music for this movie, songs are not that great, however background score is good but it has heavy Telugu mass movie effect which could have been avoided.

First half of the movie looks really lengthy due to the introduction of characters, unwanted hero introduction fight and intro song and lot of time was wasted in this and story actually starts after a point of time.

Second half is much better and that actually saves the movie big time as all the elements in the second half worked out well and it kept the audience engaged.

Action scenes in this movie is choreographed well, especially the medical college fight is treat for action movie buffs.

The movie depicts the sacrifices made by parents just to make their kids happy.

Screenplay in the first half could have been altered and few songs and action scenes could have been trimmed down which would have made this movie a racy entertainer.

Verdict- A good action drama movie which will impress Action movie buffs and family audience.

My Rating is 3.25/5

Analysis of the Web Series

This web series created curiosity mainly due to the actors and the subject handled in the web series and finally the web series is out on OTT platform.

Pooja Shetty and Neil Pagedar has written and directed this web series, on paper this seems to be an interesting subject as it is futuristic and they have researched about few elements which may be reality in future and they have also executed it .

As concept this works out and makers have tried to make the premise look like one set in future by utilizing holograms, AI robots, Wifi sharing robots and many advanced robots for each and every purpose.

The series starts of well and first episode is actually interesting but then the show falls flat and it never picks up from there and finally ends without having much to offer.

The main issue in this series is weak writing and half baked characters,few characters are so non relatable and they do not make any impression.

Vijay Varma plays the lead role in this series and he is the perfect choice for this role and he has performed well.

Radhika Apte is completely wasted in this role and this is her worst performance ever and she does not look convincing, thanks to the writing , her character does not have much to offer .

Jackie Shroff is wasted in this series and his character could have been done by any other actor.

Editing in this series is mediocre, the series could have been edited into 5 episode series which would have made this series more bearable.

Diego Guijarro has handled cinematography in this movie and cinematography is amateurish as the locations selected and shot division and angles looked ordinary and it did not give the feel of watching science fiction show.

Comedy did not work out in this series as the dialogues were poorly written.

This series could have been much better and could have set benchmark but sadly it fails to impress.

Verdict- OK Computer is definitely not OK!!!!

My Rating is 2/5

Anandhi plays a crucial role in this movie and she is just not used for songs or glamour quotient in the movie and she has meaty role in this movie and she has performed well.

Comedy did not work out completely and comedy dialogues could have been better and director could have utilized the plot effectively in second half rather than taking the usual route.

Verdict- A decent Zombie movie which will entertain you in parts..

My Rating is 3/5

Synopsis of the movie

Story revolves around the protagonist Saina and this movie is summary of her journey on how she becomes a Badminton player.

Analysis of the movie

When the first look posters ,teaser and trailer of the movie was released there was mixed response from the audience and the movie is finally released in theaters, did it meet the expectations or not, lets find out..

Making a biopic movie is not simple task as the makers have to correctly depict the facts and also need to make few changes by taking cinematic liberties to make it as a commercial movie and director Amole Gupte has done a good job in writing and executing this story to an extent.

Parineeti Chopra plays the titular role in this movie and she has given her best in this movie and she definitely looks like a badminton player and the way she has expressed her anger, frustrations, happiness through her body language and facial expressions is marvelous.

The girl who has played the younger version of Saina exactly looks like Saina and she has performed brilliantly in the movie.

Dialogues in this movie is well written and executed and it created a strong impact in few scenes.

Meghna Malik plays a key role in this movie and emotional scenes between her and Parineeti as Mom and daughter worked out well in this movie.

Manav Kaul plays an important role in this movie and his combination scenes with Parineeti worked out perfectly.

The emotional angle in this movie worked out really well especially in the first half.

Piyush Shah has handled cinematography for this movie and cinematography is top notch in this movie,especially the badminton games were covered well by the cinematography team.

Amaal Malik has handled music for this movie, songs are good but the background score could have been much better.

Makeup for Parineeti could have been much better as she was not looking like Saina Nehwal and mole on her face was too big and that could have been modified.

Second half is slow and draggy as the screenplay moves in slow pace and that could have been altered.

The way the story is executed could have been better as the struggles were not portrayed well in this movie.

This is good biopic but it could have been much better as we have seen better biopics made in Hindi and this is definitely not the best .

Verdict- A good biopic which is worth watching for Saina…

My Rating is 3.5/5
