A Still of Allu Arjun & Rakul Preet from the movie

PROS :

  • Bunny, he is mind blowing and a show stealer. Right from his intro scene he shows his redefined screen presence by shedding down the lover boy image into an gritting angry man with his thumping punches. His comic timing, dialogue delivery , extra ordinary fights , dance moves, what not..  all are supremely fantastic. We can easily find his hardwork and dedication that he has put into the making of this movie. He’s an ALL ROUNDER !!
  • Director, Boyapati has to be appreciated for his fantastic execution. Though he has chosen a routine plot , the way he has handled the movie and maintained the HIGH dosage of mass elements is SPLENDID !! He has greatly moulded and sculpted Bunny as he liked and finally showcased him quite well.
  • Aadi, this guy is simply amazing. Man ! I like his attitude which he maintains in the entire film . The movie wouldn’t have had the required punch if it was not for Aadi. He is the Sarrainodu for Bunny. The way he confronts bunny is superb.
  • First half, it is quite entertaining with good dosage of Mass-Masala & Comedy. Brahmi’s comedy timing evokes laughs in the first half. Srikanth has strongly supported Bunny in this film and played a decent role.
  • BGM, Thaman.. U Beauty !! He did an amazing job. That’s a thumping sound which comes out of the speakers which greatly elevates the plot and especially during fight scenes.
  • Production Values are awesome which makes the film look quite grandeur.
  • Dialogues are beautifully penned . (Erra tholu kadha ani class anukuntunnavemo.. Mass.. Oora Masss..)

CONS :

  • Story line, it has got nothing new to offer.
  • Second Half, after a decent first half the pace of the film comes down in second half as the emotions takes center stage which becomes quite boring and predictable. Since Aadi has done a decent job i thought they would show more confrontational scenes with Bunny , Sadly there is only one single fight in the movie with Aadi which is in the climax.
  • Violence, most of the family audience will not be able to digest such HUGE amount of action sequences and Violence content. So, it is NOT RECOMMENDABLE for family audience.

FINAL SAY :

On the whole, Sarrainodu is an Pakka Typical Oora Mass entertainer with powerpacked punches of Bunny , menancing Aadi and superb execution from Boyapati will enthrall the audience a big time. If you can manage the violence and bogged down second half then, give it a shot this weekend.

Thanks for Reading !! @CinemahubTweets

Movie Review : FAN | Shah Rukh Khan

FAN – It is not ‘FAN’tastic !!

Release Date : 15th April 2016
Director :
Maneesh Sharma
Music Director :
Andrea Guerra, Vishal-Shekhar
Starring : Shah Rukh Khan
Producer : Aditya Chopra

Rating : 2.5/5.0

Story line :

Gaurav (Shah Rukh Khan) is a die-hard fan of Aryan Khanna (Shah Rukh Khan), whom he considers a God. Gaurav has a striking resemblance in terms of looks with his idol as well.

After winning a local contest, Gaurav embarks on a journey from Delhi to Mumbai to wish Aryan on his birthday and for a chance to personally meet him. When his plans go haywire after a rift with Aryan, Gaurav’s love towards him turns into a dangerous obsession that crosses the fine line between a fan and a stalker. What happens next? How Gaurav threatens Aryan ? forms the rest of the plot.

PROS :

  • Shah rukh khan, he is the major asset for the flick and takes acting to a whole new level with his performance as Gaurav. He is truly the Baadshah in terms of acting.
  • Special Effects, they are great which made Shah Rukh look quite realistic as a hardcore fan.
  • Story, it is quite unique which narrates the story of a fan turning an enemy and makers must be appreciated for leaving behind all commercial aspects such as songs and a love story by purely focusing on the star and the story.

CONS :

  • One of the negative points of Fan is that even though the story is interesting, the screenplay falters completely. The first half slugs in places.

     

  • The second half, many cinematic liberties were taken and logic goes missing in few places. The obsession shown is a little extreme and the idea of a normal, common man chasing a superstar around the world and sabotaging his career has not been shown convincingly.
  • The chase scenes, although choreographed well, are too long and a little over-the-top as well. The climax is exhausting and the film ends on a dull note.

FINAL SAY :

On the whole, FAN is quite dark & gritty thriller in the recent times. SRK simply nails his performance but due to its lackluster screen play, dragged out first half and a dull climax makes the film a one time watch. But, do have a check on your expectations.

Movie Review : Sardaar Gabbar Singh | Pawan Kalyan, Kajal Aggarwal

Sardaar Gabbar Singh – Strictly for PSPK freaks.

Release Date : 8th April 2016
Director : K.S.Ravindra (Bobby)
Music Director : Devi Sri Prasad
Starring : Pawan Kalyan, Kajal Aggarwal
Producer : 
Sunil Lulla, Sharrath Marrar

Rating : 2.75/5.0

Story line :

The story revolves around Sardaar Gabbar Singh (Pawan Kalyan) who is a happy go lucky cop . He gets transferred to Ratanpur village which is buried with darkness under the ruling of ruthless king Bhairav Singh (Sharad Kelkar). There he meets the princess of Ratanpur , Arshi Devi (Kajal Aggarwal) and she falls for her. But twist in the plot is that even the princess get threatened from Bhairav Singh . So, how the Gabbar Singh makes his move against the feudal lord and gets back his princess and the village is the rest of the storyline. Quite routine & outdated right ??

PROS :

  • Pawan Kalyan, he is the biggest asset for the flick. He has put lot of efforts in the making and succeeded in mesmerizing his fans. His power is the only thing which one can witness in each and every  frame.He is an all rounder.
  • First Half, which is neatly blended with right mix of action & comedy sequences and purely consists of fan moments. Interval Bang is good which showcases the revolt against antagonist.
  • KajaL Aggarwal, she is absolutely stunning and a show stealer as well. She has neatly portrayed the character of princess and this gorgeous diva looks more visually pleasing in her royal avatar.
  • Sharad Kelkar, he is solid and played a paisa vasool performance . This man has great future ahead in T’wood.
  • Devi Sri Prasad, BGM scored by him is fantastic and elevates the plot.
  • Production values are quite good and special mention should go to the art director for setting up the Ratanpur set and making it look quite realistic.
Sardaar Gabbar Singh Movie Review by Cinemahub.in
Still from Sardaar Gabbar Singh

CONS :

  • Story, which is ages old,outdated script and quite predictable.The plot has got nothing new to offer. Strange thing is that Pawan himself has written the story by keeping fans in his mind. Really ? How did you get a thought that your fans would encourage such an outdated script.?
  • Second half, which is dragged out too much with the penetration of songs & useless comedy sequences. The proceedings are quite predictable and the climax is also wrapped up in an unconvincing manner. After showcasing Sharad Kelkar’s character in such a powerful light during the first half, he is completely sidelined and becomes ineffective towards the end.
  • Screen Play, it is just an average job done by  Pawan. It could be much better if he had handled it to the director.
  • Director, Bobby didn’t get enough scope to handle the film. After watching the whole flick one gets to the conclusion that Pawan, himself is the director as we don’t any mark of Bobby. SAD !!

FINAL SAY :

On the whole , Sardaar Gabbar Singh is such a movie which is not meant for everyone. It entertains you only at few instances and leaves you in a thought that “Why the f**k i’m watching this flick?” It is a complete one man show. Weak storyline , excessive runtime, poor execution, dragged out second half makes it a one time watch.

  • Nagarjuna, without him this movie will never receive such an applause. I can’t imagine any other actor in this role as he had performed with great ecstasy. He is the biggest asset for the flick. He has to receive much appreciation for opting such a challenging roles. He is truly winning the hearts of the audiences.
  • Director, VamshiPaidipally has done a splendid job by beautifully portraying the plot & as well as characters. Though it is a remake subject , he has handled it extremely well and brought the Indian nativity to this content which is amazing.
  • Karthi, he is the show stealer. He strongly supports Nag and beautifully carried out all types of emotions .

CONS :

  • Tamannah has got nothing much to do in the flick. Her role might have elevated a bit.
  • Pace in the second half drops a bit which can be adjusted by chopping off few sequences in that part.
  • Mass audience may not feel the film as interesting as they don’t find such masala elements.

FINAL SAY :

On the whole, Oopiri is such a film which one should never miss watching it. It is the perfect blend of fun, emotions, simplicity, attitude towards life which are so called as universal emotions. Vamshi Paidipally has reinvented himself in this flick and has done a splendid job. Brilliant performances from lead cast and a unique & interesting plot makes the film a sure shot hit this weekend.

Meet the brand new Spider Man !

Spidey makes a grand entry in Captain America : Civil War

Spider-Man just leapt into the final shot of the Captain America: Civil War trailer. The clip lasts only a couple seconds, but gives fans their first clear look of Spidey in his brand new modernized web slinging suit.

The new design is a throwback to the original Spider-Man look, along with the 1960s cartoon that is now just as well known for the memes it spawned. The costume’s red and blues are bright and flat, and the eyes animate like a cartoon. Even the small details match, like how the blue underarm patch ends at the elbow joint and the red boot stops at the calf.

Spidey’s entry scene

Overall, this new trailer does the best job yet at showing how the Avengers schism begins, with the team being shown the aftermath of its past battles (which, you might recall, often ended in cities being totaled) and coming away with different conclusions on what to do next.

Watch the Trailer, right here :

CONS :

CONS :

  • Second Half, which is bit dragged out and moves on a single point . Most of the twists in the plot are revealed in the first half itself.

Technicalities :

  • Cinematography, It is the most appreciable thing in this flick . The Rusty locales are brilliantly captured.
  • Production values are decent.
  • Director, Hanu has done a pretty great job in bringing out the unique script and the way he has handled it . One of the biggest plus points of the film is the writing . He should have concentrated more on second half which may elevate the film in terms of pace.

FINAL SAY :

On the whole , Nani’s Prema Gaadha is neatly stuffed with entertainment and quirky love story which makes the film a sure shot for this weekend. Go, for it..!!
