Overall Review:
“OK! Jaanu” an official remake of Mani Ratnam’s Tamil film, O Kadhal Kanmani. Director Shaad Ali adapted the same story in Bollywood with a few changes in the screenplay to suit the taste of Hindi audience. What makes Ok! Jaanu different are light punches throughout the film & flawless chemistry between Aditya and Shraddha Kapoor. OK! Jaanu has rich production values...

Review: Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

ADHM

ADHM

Genre: Drama, Musical, Romance
Duration: 157 minutes
Language: Hindi
India Release Date: 28-OCT-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 3.25 on 5 (Anushka All The Way)

Plot:
A story about unrequited love – the shapes it takes, the ways it changes us and the exhilarating and often heartbreaking ride it takes us on. It is the journey of three characters, Ayan, Alizeh and Saba, as their lives intertwine and they navigate life, love and heartbreak.

Overall Review:
Kjo films have always centred around relationships and emotions, which are woven together with larger than life opulence with music playing an integral role. #AeDilHaiMushkil also falls in the same space. It offers little in terms of story and fails to get the audience empathise or feel for the characters and events in the movie...

Plot: Shahid Kapoor plays Jaginder Joginder, a wedding planner who is planning Alia’s elder sister’s wedding. Shahid and Alia’s dad Pankaj Kapur seem to have a tumultuous relationship. While Shahid looks the part of the Mills-and-Boons lead hero, Alia is convincing as a glamorous heroine.

Overall Review: The BIG FAT SHAANDAAR Indian Wedding OR should I Say India’s first destination wedding movie having unique script?? Shaandaar is dramatically different from Bahl’s breakthrough directorial debut: Queen. The treatment of the film reminds me of the Fairy Tale with lots of VFX, animations,
& an expensive sets...
