Plot:

Overall Review:
Allied is directed by Robert Zemeckis & stars Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. Love and betrayal are the themes of this sweeping love story in which star power and intrigue keep us on tenterhooks throughout. To begin the first half of the movie is not too bad. It shows how the main characters meet and react to each other with the difficult task ahead of them...

Passengers

Genre: Action, Drama, Romance
Duration: 116 Minutes
Language: English
India Release Date: 06-JAN-2017
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 3.25 on 5 (A let down Fairy-Tale Romance set in Space)

Plot:

Overall Review:
Passengers is directed by Morten Tyldum and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen and Laurence Fishburne. The theme of the film is loneliness & the concept of the film is excellent & thought provoking but is wasted on a pretty generic, relatively bland and silly script. The film is predictable with part love, survival, space odyssey stories...

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...

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s fifth directorial pilgrimage Mirzya is inspired by the folk tale of ‘The Legend of Mirza Sahiban’. It is an epic action romance set in contemporary times.

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...
