1. Pyar Ka Panchnama 2 (2015) : 7/10 While I was busy enjoying this movie, all of a sudden a thought kicked in my mind, actually that's a dialogue from TVF's online series Pitchers and that's "You can never convince a woman who gives you sex." And this dialogue is bottom line of this movie. Woman.. Probably, woman is only thing in universe, everyone failed to understand, even Stephen Hawkins has accepted this fact that woman is most mysterious object of this whole universe. But if we go in depth, we can see that actually we understand woman but we're actually hooked up with them, or say it we men are bewitched or hypnotized even we sense something is fishy out there. We keep debilitating ourselves in front of women just thinking they have respect for what we are or honest feeling. But, all our senti notions get breached because there is an ambit and she just crossed that, then we get our freedom, get emancipation from bondage. And there is bliss. There you become single again that's way better than being in sick relationship.
Here in PKP2, you get to watch this whole thing captured in light moments that's entertaining as well enlightening. I found it unexpectedly good, I never thought it to be this much logical that touches core of present world relationship between opposite sex and this movie has done certainly fair job. It has come out really brilliant film and for an instance I can say that i find it better than its prequel. Cast and crew has done outstanding job. I remember a reviewer remarked on this movie saying it depicts misogynistic psychology. And I wonder how? If it's misogynist then how will you define "Queen"?
2. Masaan (2015) : 8/10 Once I read a meme on a facebook page, "There is three stages of life. 1. We born 2. What the **** is happening 3. We die. First and last stages are quite normal phenomena, we understand cause it's biology. But, that 2nd stage of your life is what matters for all of us. And it's just complex like hell, none of technology and science could make it predictable or easier to understand. It goes on and on like you are on a boat, someone else is sailing your boat, path is endless and you don't know what you get at very next moment. Life is spontaneous and unpredictable. There is bad happenings and good happenings, but we win when we keep celebrating our lives despite all the odds. We win when we keep our faith in our boat's sailor and keep moving forward. And this is what Masaan has portrayed on beautiful canvas that enthralled my whole being and kept lingered on me. There is beauty in each expressions and every frame of this movie, there is external beauty and then there is hidden beauty that is extreme. Sometimes I felt so loud and sometimes so peace. And that's what makes it a strong film both on style and substance, one of the best of this year. It's surely one of the eminent new age movie came out in last few years. New directors have been doing great job this year with their debuting movie and Neeraj Ghaywan with his debut in Masaan assures content based movie will be flourishing in his spectre. Rest of department has done their most honest job. Beauty of Banaras is still vivid in my head along with many other intense moments. Give it a watch.
