1. Newton (2017): 9/10 There is a scene in the film where tribesmen are forced to vote irrespective of their acknowledgment of stature of candidates and the tribesmen do as they're instructed to do by the army. The character Newton, played by Rajkumar, probably can be regarded as the most honest man on the earth, tries to stop the malign but eventually, even he has to bite the bullet. That particular whole sequence hit my mind badly. In fact, I became bit emotional thinking as a country where we're heading actually, even after 70 years of Independence. The kind of chaos that particular scene created in my mind has probably distorted my faith in the political and electoral system of the country, and it's not even that I had the strong belief in the system before. As one of the reviews of the film says that the film very aptly depicts why you can't take Indian Election seriously. And, you will know the weight of the statement if you watch the film.
Drishyam Film is among one of the very few production houses who doesn't compromise with the content and I love how they're upbringing Independent Cinema. Having watched all of their films, I can say that it's going to be Nation's big pride in coming years.
Well. Newton digs your funny bone and makes you think as well. It's one of the best films of the recent times and one of the best black comedy of all time from Bollywood. The subject is contemporary and intense but what makes the film a light entertainer is the witty dialogues and an intelligent direction by Amit. V Masukar. And, the chemistry between Rajkumar and Pankaj Tripathi is a fun-ride. Their performances are show-stellar. Lastly, I'll say that It's running in the theatres. Go! Watch!
2. Don 2 (2011): 5/10 Meh. Strictly average. Again lesser on substances and more relying upon stupid melodramas. The love love-angle between the cop, Priyanka Chopra, and the antagonist, Shah Rukh Khan is so irritating that even five stars look high for the film. And, sadly, I watch the film after watching Fate of the Furious, so Don 2 looks like a kid when it comes to action sequences. Unfortunately, The film didn't work-out for me.
3. The fate of the Furious (2017): 7/10 Okay. When I suppose to watch an action film, I'm like cut the crap just pass me some original and never seen before action sequences and I'll keep story and logic aside. And, the film does so. It has got some fantastic and gripping action-sequences and I loved that.
4. This is the End (2013): 8/10 This film is WOW. An apocalypse film can't be funnier anymore. Someone can say, "Dude! It's an apocalypse film, you are not supposed to laugh." But, hey! I guarantee you if you want some laugh riot amid some really really scary shit. Just spend 2 hours watching this film. You may have watched some zombie-apocalypse comedy films like Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead, but it's different from those. It's fresh and funnier than them.
