Kapoor & Sons..since 1921

‘Kapoor & Sons’ is the latest Dharma production manufacture starring Rishi Kapoor, Fawad Khan, Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt among other lead actors.
As customary with Dharma, the movie thrives on delinquencies in a common-man family, the little joys and chaos which relations can bring, and how fleeting can life really be.

The movie has these small plot points that immediately connect to the audience, like where two siblings have a strained aspect in their bond, but still care for each other, meanwhile the father and the mother too have their differences which translate into quarrels that appear rib-tickling and futile.
But soon the plot thickens, as these relationship problems surface with deeper manifestations like social and cultural stigmas, infidelity and child-favoritism.
The story is about how a family deals with such make or break situations.

Rishi Kapoor bags the trophy for audience’s favorite character with his raw innocence and spot on acting. Fawad Khan overshadows Sidharth in almost every department, be it acting, screen presence or leaving the ladies feel weak in their knees. Rajat Kapoor and Ratna Pathak add a lot of intensity with their powerful and precise deliveries.

Overall, it’s a good watch!

Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation

Mission Impossible franchise has become that old magician who repeats the same tricks again and again with impalpable  vigor and gusto, but is of little help in catering to your fascinations; the fascination for that fresh action packed cinematic experience which is fast depleting!

Everything about the Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation is regressive. The story-line, the action sequence, the dramatics, the climax.. EVERYTHING!
The only novelty of the movie is that Tom Cruise gets older in every sequel. 😀

So, in summary, here’s the recipe for making an M.I.

  • Create an enemy for the US that has the power to wipe out the world, and only the US intel has the information on it. [No pressure, you could bring in the aliens or other life forms too, whatever pops in your head 😉 ]
  • Bring in a tech guy who has the capabilities of breaking into any digital security known to mankind but still works as a lame ass field agent to earn a living 😛
  • For all the physical work that needs brute strength like chasing down an airplane while wearing a suit, jumping off cliffs without slightest injuries, scaling the tallest of towers, or getting beaten up within the inch of life, recruit Tom Cruise.
  • Place a hot chick behind enemy lines, whose life he must save!!
  • Record all this in a message that will self destruct in 5 seconds.
  • Find a catchy title (That tells nothing about the movie!).

In conclusion, I’d like to say, that the movie will not bore you, but will disappoint you. [You could also fall asleep in the midst like my friend did.]
