Pink

Genre: Drama, Thriller
Duration: 136 minutes
Language: Hindi
India Release Date: 16-SEP-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating:

Plot:
“Pink” is a courtroom drama-thriller film, which is about Miss Arora (Taapsee Pannu) and her two roommates (Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang), who are molested by drunk friends. How lawyer Deepak (Amitabh Bachchan), who is suffering from bipolar disorder, fights these girls’ case forms the crux of the story.

Overall Review:
Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhary and presented by Shoojit Sircar, this court room thriller is set in Delhi. While first half of the films is at snail pace to establish the story and its characters, the second half is gripping and helps the film in reaching its crescendo. Film is embellished with powerful performances by Sr...

Trailer review: Days of Tafree

Story shares an uncanny resemblance to Gujarati Hit: Chello Divas. The trailer showcases the lives of seven friends and their journey of growing up while they face the highs and lows of their relationships, love and romance, the end of their college days and the beginning of a new life. It will take you back to your college days full of fun & fultoo time-pass. Lead male star cast is same as hit Gujarati film: Chello Divas. Both films are directed by Krishnadev Yagnik. Hindi version seems to be more vibrant than Gujarati. Lets keep the fingers crossed for the hindi version to deliver more gags and chilled music. Admission starts on 23rd September 2016.

Duration: 150 minutes
Language: Hindi
India Release Date: 12-AUG-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 3 on 5 (An average flick that has nothing to offer except Akshay Kumar)

Plot:
Decorated officer. Devoted family man. Defending his honor. His name is RUSTOM.

Overall Review:
The duo Neeraj Pandey & Akshay Kumar is back after Special 26 and Baby. Rustom is a hat-trick movie for them. Movie is fictionalised version of the famous 1959 case of K.M. Nanavati that changed the face of the India judicial system. Akki plays Indian Naval Officer Rustom Pavri and has delivered marvelous performance on screen. In spite of having “Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi”, this courtroom drama fails miserably in technical department...

India Release Date: 02-AUG-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 1.5 on 5 (Complete Waste of Time and Money. Rating upgraded from 1 to 1.5 for Unconventional Funny Movie End)

Plot:
Movie is about a hooligan/gangster whose ambitions and career are entirely shaped by his life-long quest for the girl he fell in love with – and lost – as a child. Their paths cross again as adults through a hare-brained set of circumstances that make Sajid Khan’s films seem well thought out.

Overall Review:
First thing first: There is nothing legendary about Manish Jha’s film: The Legend of Michael Mishra. Film is complete distaster with amateurish acting and a directionless plot...
