Game Over Movie Review: Super unnatural thriller!

3 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Bollywood  
Game OverU/ADirector: Ashwin SaravananCast: Taapsee PannuRating: This is what you would typically call a "genre" pic. By which, thematically, I mean a supernatural thriller/horror. Why is such a movie usually the hardest to pull off? Because they have to work within time-tested tricks and tropes, to ideally produce jumps, and jolts. Competent camera-work and editing matter more than anything else. And in that regard, the film either works, or doesn't. Which isn't to suggest all such movies are roughly the same; of course not. In fact even films that don't quite belong to the genre employ its devices effectively to tell their tale. Take Vikramaditya Motwane's Trapped (2016), for instance. On the face of it, it's about a man trapped in a building, which while horrific, isn't quite horror (strictly speaking). But it really does play out entirely like a horror movie. Why do I mention Trapped? Because that one pretty much had just one actor/protagonist on the screen, all the way. So does th..

I am an Arjun Reddy fan, and I am guessing you are too, which is why you agreed to do the film.I am a big fan of the film. The script didn't come to me. I watched Arjun Reddy and loved it. It ticked most of the boxes for me as an actor. He is an emotionally distraught man. Vijay [Deverakonda] and I had our own take on being a self-destructive surgeon.

He surprised them by landing on their set. Singh and Abhishek go back a long way. So there was never a dull moment. Mythology challenge Playing a mythological character has its own set of challenges, the biggest one being acceptance by the audience. Shiny Doshi, who plays Radha in Shrimad Bhagavad, had similar apprehensions as this is her first mythological. She was worried if people would accept her as Radha but the makers put her apprehensions to rest. Shooting in elaborate attires was also something she was concerned about. Doshi spent several sleepless nights, but now when she sees herself on screen she is glad she gave her nod to the show. Checkmate Parikshit Sahni and Tina Philip are often spotted playing chess in between shots on the set of Ek Bhram..

Men in Black: International Movie Review: A substandard, enervating, sequel

Men in Black: InternationalU/A: Action, Adventure, ComedyCast: Tessa Thompson, Chris Hemsworth, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Rebecca Ferguson, Rafe Spall, Kumail Nanjiani (voice)Director: F Gary GrayRating: Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones kept their charm fires raging all through the MIB series - even though subsequent sequels (to the radically funny opener) lost much of their appeal along the way. MIB International, the fourth in the series, coming as it does after a long hiatus and some serious juggling around with cast, loses its way in the vacuous nonsensical skulduggery it exhibits as part of its populist offensive. The fans might want to believe that the Men in Black have always protected the Earth from the Baddies of the Universe but this new fluff of lather top-lining Liam Neeson, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson fails to make it stick. Frankly, it’s the terrible writing here by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum (based on Magic Book characters by Lowell Cunningham), that make ..

For the weight gain portion Weight to gain8kilos Calories4,000 What Shahid wantedThe team decided to first shoot the portions that saw me out of shape. The character goes through an emotional phase; he is self-destructive and doesn't care about how he looks. Actors are used to [looking] their best, at all times. But, here, I had to look as disinterested as I could about the way I appeared. Hence, we took the decision to grow the hair and beard.
