After all the controversies and fights, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat got a terrific reception at the Indian big screens. The 3D experience that the movie offers is one of the major highlights of the cinema. But undoubtedly, Ranveer’s performance is the outstanding element a cinema audient should never miss. A villain of such distinguish mannerisms and negative attitude is hard to find in the history of Bollywood movies. The director continues to mesmerize us with his majestic frames and magical tunes. As every other Bhansali movies, art direction and costumes are unbelievably apt for the time period. The narrow story line of the script at times makes the movie at touch dragging. But the movie has definitely made its significance in the Bollywood industry hits.
The Malayalam lady superstar Manju Warrier’s latest movie Aami is getting a mixture opinions and critical comments from the Malayalam audience. The character was committed by Vidya Balan earlier. Whether Manju could fill in the shoes of the legendry writer Madhvikkutty, was the question right from the project announcement. Personally, I felt that Manju has shown justice to the character. In fact, her inability to portrait the visual elegance of Kamala Surayya is quite significant in the first half. The research and thought process behind the making of the movie is really remarkable. Kamal once again proves his master class in crafting such in depth scripts after celluloid. Even though, Aami has not won every hearts, I would say the movie is unique in the making and style of narration. And also a movie very much technically sound in all areas.
