The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – Glutted.

“Go Spidey!”, everyone shouts in the audience in the film. But did newly reformed Spider-Man go that far to impress us in this Spidey sequel too?

Forgive me, but I’ll mention this in every review I write on a Spider-Man movie, that, no one can outdo the first Spider-Man a.k.a Tobey Maguire in Sam Raimi‘s films. Although, this Spider-Man is slimmer, fitter, taller, cooler and more comical. It is funny and entertaining to watch how easily he takes on his responsibilities, when/if compared to the original.

The expectations were high because the first installment did well when Andrew Garfield was brought in to portray the new Peter Parker. He is new-aged and witty. Something new for Spider-Man’s character in films. Even Paul Giamatti (as Aleksei Sytsevich/Rhino) and Dane DeHaan (as Harry Osborn/Green Goblin) showed their charm.

However, I am truly shocked that even four story writers, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt couldn’t make the plot engaging enough. Emma is adorable as his love interest. Jamie Foxx (as Max Dillon) proves to be a great antagonist to Garfield. In fact, some of the visuals effects given to his character Electro and some of the action scenes are jaw-dropping!

Lastly, the duration of the film went too long. Perhaps, there were way too many foes stuffed in, when just one could’ve been sufficient? Or the writers wanted to show it all, forecasting the dull future of this franchise.

P.S: Just read the newspapers, the film Neighbors starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron beat the records of The Amazing Spiderman 2. I rest my case.

Krrish 3 – A bad move.

My friend and I are huge fans of Hrithik Roshan, and we were too excited to watch his new flick. We had pre-booked the tickets and were eagerly waiting for the release date to come.


I don’t know what got into the director’s mind and he made such a subpar film with such a bad story. I was laughing so much on how cheesy the dialogues were in the film, specially a film which is a 2013 release. Its not 1990, Mr. Rakesh Roshan, where people actually kept all the cheesy dialogues in mind, to repeat them, eventually. Especially youngsters. There is a good amount and quality of technology shown in the film, on which nearly one and a half years were spent. I applaud that. But again, it looked like they’ve taken so much from the Hollywood, specially from films like Superman, X-Men and Justice League. Most of the scenes reminded me of these movies. Not to mention, the characters, including the villain, all are characters from the X-Men or probably very similar, if not the same. I mean, that’s pathetic. Why wouldn’t you ever create something of your own? [my question to Indian directors]


I loved the performances of Vivek Oberoi playing the villain and Jr. Roshan playing the father-son duo. Kangna Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra are just extras, I feel. Moving on to the music. It is probably the most head-aching music I’ve ever heard! Even Rajesh Roshan is still living in the nineties. Buck up man. Shouldn’t have even thought about Raghupati Raaghav! Its a chant and something which we Indians pray on. Come on! Although, there is just Dil Tu Hi Bata which sounded nice.


I would surely enumerate about how much hard work Hrithik has put in this film, in every scene (especially the one in Jordan shooting the song Dil Tu Hi Bata). With his brain surgeries, back injuries, he’s completed a super-hero film. So, that’s a big thing and he should be well commended for that.


At the end, all I can say is that elders and minors can go watch this film and I think they’ll like it. Plus, elders aren’t really aware of the Hollywood sci-fi blockbusters. Its a no-go for the mid-aged. It will be a comedy show for them.


P.S: Director, you should have given a decent costume to Vivek. He is looking like garbage, literally. And, how can a device put life into someone/something and at the same time destroy someone? What logic!
