Review: Mubarakan

Mubarakan

Mubarakan

Short Review:
Anees Bazmee (director of Welcome, Singh is King, Ready, No Problem, Welcome Back) brings situational comedy of errors: Mubarakan in year 2017. It’s full paisa vasool joyful ride for the entire family. Anees Bazmee brilliantly rounds this up well into a colorful, happy laughathon showcasing the Chacha Bhatija duo – Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor in ‘jhakaas’ form. First half is complete laugh riot whereas second half loses the steam in last 25-30 minutes. The humour in Mubarakan does take a bit of time to set in. Bazmee takes time to establish the emotional connect between the characters giving us their back stories before beginning the Laugh-A-Thon. Arjun Kapoor, who doubles up as Karan (the smart guy) and Charan (the duffer), proves a point with this madcap...

Raag Desh

Short Review:
Tigmanshu Dhulia brings industry’s new favorite subject: Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose (Indian National Army) in form of his new film titled “RAAG DESH”. He presents the story of three INA soldiers — Shah Nawaz Khan (Kunal Kapoor), Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon (Amit Sadh) and Prem Sahgal (Mohit Marwah) — and their Red Fort trials, that made for a rare display of retreat by the British Empire. Besides the three chief actors, Kenny Desai proves his mettle as a nuanced actor & shines in the grave role of Bhulabhai Desai, the legal representative of the three INA soldiers. All his scenes, particularly the concluding monologue, are impressive.
Through the eyes of the three soldiers— a Hindu, a Sikh, and a Muslim–we see how a remarkable ‘army’ was born, and how ‘desh ki azaa...
