1. Dear Zindagi (2016) : 7/10 A weak first half saved by outstanding second half. Even though it was kinda essaying a psychology class to high school kid, but it put up its messages beautifully without trying hard. Fear of rejection is one of the psychological fear we all deal in our life, and how this makes us very less expressive and depressive sometimes has shown in this movie subtlety. With Alia Bhatt playing character of Kaira, she has strong grip on emotional role, as we've been watching her playing such roles which are very persuasive in Highway, Udta Punjab and now in Dear Zindagi. She is just getting better and better by each next project. Shah Rukh Khan as a psychologist Jahangir is one of the such influential and loveable character that we all will want him to have session with, even if we're not having any psychological issues. Every sequences featuring him and his conversation with Alia is motivational, although preachy sometimes. Yes, it feels so superficial and pretentious sometimes, but other factors like Ali Zafar cameo and all the songs featuring him are so beautiful, it restricts you to complain much about its nature as how it communicates with its audiences, specially with me as I want something deep which makes me find out meaning from content by myself because that belongs to me for long time. Anyway, vision of Gauri Shinde with Dear Zindagi is positive and influential. There are dialogues written humorously which will stay with you surely and its beautiful location and cinematography are something you gonna always love. You can try it if you are not expecting a fast moving story.
2. Madaari (2016) : 7/10 Very engaging suspense thriller. But, I was bit let down by the way it ended. I was expecting something more mind-blowing consequence. Still, a nice take on corruption.
3. Cinderella (2015) : 7/10 Such animation movie based on fairy tell always works doesn't matter how realistic approach you keep in your mind before watching a movie. There is beauty in representation of story with so aesthetic visual which gonna always please your eyes. You can't ask much from it. If nothing else, a two hour wholesome entertainment is enough to make you give your praise to it.
