New Age Cinema: Content is the KING this Summer

  1. Chitralahari: Story of a guy who is projected as a failure by society and himself. This movie scored a decent hit, recovering most of the money invested. More than anything, I loved the transformation of Sai Tej (he changed his name) both physically and performance-wise. Nothing much to take away, this is also a watchable movie with some good moments.
  2. Jersey: Must watch for movie lovers. Nani answered many people, including me that he’s choosing challenging scripts unlike earlier. Every aspect of filmmaking beautifully supplemented other. All the actors lived their roles. A perfect blend of cricket and emotions.
  3. Maharshi: A typical commercial-message oriented movie from Mahesh Babu. Keeping aside the last 30 minutes, the whole movie is one time watchable with many routine scenes that remind us of Mahesh Babu from Srimanthudu and Bharat Ane Nenu. He played a safe game with this movie and with no other releases, this film turned out to be a commercial blockbuster. But I connected to the last 30 minutes.
  4. Falaknuma Das: A movie on our city, our language, and our culture. I was pretty much satisfied with the movie because of the characters, plot, and performances. Though it’s a remake of Malayalam “Angamaly Diaries”, I feel it is connected to the local masses. A realistic movie with fewer complaints. Kudos to Viswak Sen for directing this movie along with playing the lead role. Special mention to the Surprise Package from Tharun Bhascker!
