Overall Review:
Moana is helmed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the same guys that co-directed both THE LITTLE MERMAID and ALADDIN. This is Disney’s 56th animated feature and the studio isn’t losing their touch. Film is full of original and incredibly catchy songs, brilliant characters and a heart-warming story that makes it soul touching animated film in recent times from Disney...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe shines again with its 14th installment viz: Doctor Strange. Film is Stupendous, visually spellbinding, brilliantly acted and funny in most of the parts. Doctor Strange is one of the most interesting and strangest character from Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Overall Review:
From the creators of Shrek comes smart, funny & fresh animated comedy of the year – TROLLS. Film directed by Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn features the voices of Anna Kendrick & Justin Timberlake. Trolls is funny and sweet filled with great songs. The story is good, with relatable characters and situations and is predictable. However, what makes Trolls a must watch is its visual beauty filled with bright / vivid colours...

Review: Shivaay

Shivaay

Shivaay

Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
Duration: 169 minutes
Language: Hindi
India Release Date: 28-OCT-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating:

Plot:
Shivaay is a Himalayan mountaineer who is an innocent and yet is capable of transforming into a mean destroyer when he needs to protect his family.

PDF Verdict: Loosely adapted from English flick: Taken, Ajay Devgn’s 2nd bollywood film Shivaay fails miserably. With running time of 175 minutes, watch this film only if you have absolutely nothing else to do. Debutant Sayyeshaa Saigal tells Ajay in the climax: “I don’t know what to say. I am at a loss for words” and so was the case with me. As the punch line says: “THERE WILL BE DESTRUCTION THIS DIWALI”, it will be if you see this film...

Plot:
The epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother, an officer in the Roman army. After years at sea, Judah returns to his homeland to seek revenge, but finds redemption.

Overall Review:
2016 Ben-Hur is a remake of 1959’s classic version with the same name that won 11 Oscar awards. This American epic historical action drama is directed by Timur Bekmambetov. Cinematically, the film was a little disappointing. Director completely failed to maintain the pace which is very important for a historic drama movie. It was like 3 hour classic film condensed to 2 hours...

Pet's  Dragon

Pet’s Dragon

Genre: Adventure, Family, Fantasy
Duration: 103 minutes
Language: English
India Release Date: 19-AUG-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 3 / 5 (An Average Affair with the Dragon)

Plot:
The adventures of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon.

Overall Review:
After hits like: Zootopia, The Jungle Book & The BFG, I had high expectations from Disney’s Pete’s Dragon. But Disney has failed to deliver. Pete’s Dragon is nothing less than The Jungle Book meets The Good Dinosaur. Disney rolls the dice with a green fuzzy dragon Elliot, the biggest asset of the film. It works brilliantly mainly because they craft the illusion in such way that you believe he is really there...

Overall Review: The heroes in a half shell are back in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows!! It is directed by Dave Green and is the sequel to the hit 2014 film. The film stars Megan Fox, Stephen Amell and features the voices of Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Noel Fisher and Alan Ritchson. As for the Turtles, it’s nice to see them getting more screentime where each of them has their moments...
