Movie Reviews📽: CRD, Judwaa 2, Birth of the Dragon, American Made

  |   India News / Bollywood


Duta Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐(4/5)
🎬Director: Kranti Kanade

Short for 'Chetan Ranjit Deshmukh', the male protagonist of the film, CRD is downright bizarre and few Indian films have come as close to the kind of visual animation-drama that it promises. The movie is a mix of art, erotica, politics and what not. It touches upon real-world issues like farmer suicides, dissent and the killing of rationalists and intellectuals. This could well be the movie of the present era that India is facing and it's bound to evoke some strong reactions, whether the viewer will appreciate it or not.

🎥Judwaa 2

Duta Rating ⭐⭐(2/5)
🎬Director: David Dhawan

Varun Dhawan plays brothers Raja and Prem at the same time. The two characters are conjoined twins supposedly show strange reflexes which happens to be the main premise of the film. They are separated at birth after a smuggler kidnaps Raja. Geeky Prem grows up in London with his parents, while the mischevious Raja finds shelter in a Mumbai. The 'fun' begins when the two cross paths once again. Varun has given us many successful comedies and Judwaa 2 is bound to be another. The dialogues are lame, and actresses wear skimpy costumes. What did you expect? If the original 'Judwaa' shows us Salman slapping Karisma Kapoor's ass, then you can't really expect much more in terms of treatment of women in the Indian media in 'Judwaa 2'. Oh well, if you're gonna watch it anyway, then happy Dussehra to you.

🎥American Made

Duta Rating ⭐⭐⭐(3/5)
🎬Director: Doug Liman

Looks like Tom Cruise is once again up to something crazy. Tom plays Adler Berriman Seal, a commercial airline pilot who joins the CIA in covert drug delivery operations. Tom, in his Texan twang, plays the part well and turns on the usual charm in his pilot's uniform. The movie is fast-paced and full of action, guns, drugs and babes. Certainly not one of Tom's best movies, but at least he never fails to entertain.

🎥Birth of the Dragon

Duta Rating ⭐⭐⭐(3/5)
🎬Director: George Nolfi

Beware that this is only a fictionalized drama based on Bruce Lee but doesn't really have anything much to do with the legend. George Nolfi attempts to showcase a fight between Lee and Shaolin master Wong Jack Man in 1964. The action is on point and comes complete with nunchucks, wooden dummies, flying kicks and a one-inch-punch. Watch it for the action, not the story.
