Film Review: Jagga Jasoos (2017) by Anurag Basu

Anurag Basu wanted to make a musical and he made it. But the amazing fact is that he decided to make a musical out of a detective narrative. “Jagga Jasoos” is one of the smartest Hindi movies of recent time, which bypasses the fence of typical stereotypes of filmmaking approaches in bollywood and is a delight to watch.

Jagga – a shy young boy, is reluctant to express his feelings verbally, as he stammers. But one day his father ( Saswata Chatterjee) advices him to prolong his technique of speaking by singing his thoughts.

“Don’t miss Raid” – Subhash K Jha Review

Raid

Starring Ajay Devgan, Saurabh Shukla

Directed by Raj Kumar Gupta

Just when you think the Bollywood thriller is running out of steam there comes Raid, a film so taut and clenched, so caustic and brimming with political sarcasm that you wonder… where was director Raj Kumar Gupta hiding himself for so many years?

So, yes he made Ghanchakkar… We all make mistakes, okay? Not that I minded Gupta’s unexpected swing into zany comedy. But smartly spun tautly narrated political thrillers are his forte. Aamir and None One Killed Jessica had proved it. Raid proves it again.

So welcome back, Mr Gupta. Here’s your deal. An honest-to-goodness income tax officer, played with incorruptible smoothness by Ajay Devgn, who gives away nothing (at least, nothing that we can see on his face) is pitched against a burly swarmy corrupt seedy politician in the hotbed of Lucknow’s politics.

Creating Hanuman Da’ Damdaar was not Child’s Play

Ruchi Narain the writer and director of Hanuman Da Damdaar that animation films are certainly not child’s play.

When R.A.T. Films decided to delve into Hanuman Dadamdaar, an animation film they refused to take short cuts. “We recorded the soundtrack in Los Angeles, I don’t think anyone other than the makers of Sairaat have done that. We had the team who works with Hans Zimmer do the score and the live recordings happened in his studio. It is our dedication to give our best to the film, and when you are committed to doing that, you cannot compromise,” quipped the spokesperson for R.

Naturally, we were brimming with excitement but we didn’t even tell the other actors associated with the film that Salman Khan has already dubbed his part and is playing the titular role. We didn’t want the news to come out so soon,
