Darr @ The Mall - Film Review

Rating: ***

A spine chilling tale of events happening one night in a newly opened mall and an encounter with the past.

Pawan Kripalani, whose previous film ‘Ragini MMS’ fetched him critics acclaim as well as box office success, is back with yet another scary film – Darr @ The Mall. This one manages to scare the viewer on several occasions with occurrences like doors opening by themselves, drawers banging and the screams of children crying which are used as background score.

Asia’s largest mall – The Grand is ready for inauguration. Over the period of its construction, there is a myth surrounding the mall that people have started labeling it as Haunted Mall.

It begins with the security guard losing his life in a gruesome accident which actually never happened. It was the imagination of the poor man that his car window is smashed and then he is shown as being strangled to death with the seat belt. The post mortem report shows that the security in charge was killed due to suffocation in his car.

Gunday – Film Review Rating: ***

Action packed story of two friends, based in Kolkata of the 80s

Gunday is about the deep bonding between two guys who have faced crises and insecurities all through their childhood and then struggled for gaining a foothold in India. The friends are thrilled at merely getting the ration card issued in their names and then on they take the local mafia and become dons of the underworld in this eastern part of India.

Priyanka Chopra is the one who shines in this film. She is cute and looks hot in her songs and dances. She is the only one who appears realistic and performs her part flawlessly. Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor are too loud at times. They appear to be a bit more filmy in their characters. Irfan Khan is wasted in this film.

The most impressive work is that of child actors Darshan Gurjar and Jayesh Kardak who enact the characters of young Bikram and Bala.

Gunday has some brilliant cinematography, and much to the credit of the art department, Kolkata of the 1970s and 1980s is perfectly presented on screen.

Babloo Happy Hai - Film Rating: ***

‘Babloo Happy Hai’ takes you on a journey through the breathtaking mountains, and through the lives of a set of memorable characters who will make you think again about love, and fall in love with love itself.

Amidst the common notions of irreverence and rebellion, the youth of today is troubled by many questions, puzzled by many choices, battling with a lot of pressures; wandering perhaps, but not entirely lost. The most basic of these conflicts, however, remains the question of love.

I want to make a mark in Bollywood – Shahnawaz Khan

This handsome dude is an model turned actor based in Mumbai.
Having done his initial acting training from NIDA (National Institute of Drama and Arts) Sydney, Australia, Shahnawaz came to Mumbai.

He has completed and received his acting diploma from ” Barry John” acting institute.

Sometime in 2013, he appeared in a leading role in the romantic thriller “Dekha Jo Pehli Baar’, which couldn’t create any buzz in Bollywood, and he was frank enough to admit that the film couldn’t complete even the first week of its run in Bollywood.
Very rare to find this honesty and frankness among the freshers, he added that the film’s marketing lagged way behind. Further, there was no established studio backing the project, hence the fiasco.

Presently, he is doing theatre with Mrs. Nadira Zaheer Babbar at ‘Ekjute Theatre Group’ since the last 3 years.
