Men in Black-3 (MiB-3) – Xtreme Movie Review

man in black-3

“I just learned that Agent K has been assassinated by Boris from future, an alien criminal in 1969. I must travel through a time and stop him and save young Agent K. And I have only 24 hours to do the stuff and return home safely!! ”

O Yeah!! Will Smith Just told me the base line script of MIB-3 and that’s what the movie is all about. But that’s not the end, for MIB lovers the movie has got much more to offer.

men in black-3

It took 10 years for Men In Black to get along for MIB-3 but finally Will Smith AKA Agent J is back with good touch of comedy, well written sci-fi story and action movie. What the movie doesn’t yet show in demo videos is the creepy and “yuk” moments that girls and kids may not enjoy. I enjoyed it though :)

If you’re looking for a quick notes to “Go for MIB-3 or not”, here are the points:
– You’re a fan of Will and/or MIB, you ought to watch this.
– You’re a fan of sci-fi type movies, this one is right for you.
– You haven’t seen MIB-1 and MIB-2, you can still go for MIB-3. Just read the following 2 points and go for it.
1. Neurolyzer: A device that erases your memory to the preset time on it.
2. Agent J is Will Smith and Agent K is his partner to tackle the aliens and protect earth.

Now, When there is a Will, there is Smith.
:) What I took from the movie is Jokes, a lot of funny and comedy dialogue sequences that keep your lips in a “smiled” position.

Jokes apart; The movie starts with Boris (played nicely by Jemaine Clement), an alien escaping from the prison of moon. Boris aims to time travel to 1969 to assassinate Agent K, the time when Agent K had captured him and chopped his hand off.

I got surprised to see Nicole, the PCD girl, taking a small but creepy and funny role being lover of Boris and helping him escape from the Moon-Jail, with no more than 2 dialogues! Anyways the story continues…

During the regular life Agent J notices that everything has changed suddenly and he couldn’t find his partner Agent K. Agent J learns that Agent K has been already dead in a complex story sequence and decides to go to past 1969 to stop the Future Boris to kill Past Agent K and stop changing the history. Yep that’s MIB-3 :)

The way Will (Agent J) travels through time is a great animation and movie sequence when he jumps from Chrysler building. In past times Agent K has to put some security gadget on Apollo 11 to secure earth from the attack of Boris-kind-of-aliens while Boris from Future and Boris from Past try to stop Past Agent K.

Bike lovers ‘d like the bike of Boris from future.

The past involves Griffin, another alien who has a gift of seeing future, who actually provides the security gadget to Agent K. Another important character is a security-officer who helps Agent J & K to pass through security for the Apollo 11 and helps him in installing the gadget. That’s where Will (Agent J) learns about his past.
Anyways, Agent J and K successfully install the security gadget and kill both Boris from Future and Past – the happy sci-fi ending.

Alice Eve plays the young Agent O and looks beautiful, a good reason for Agent K to fall in love :)
I saw it in Hindi and here are a few really catchy dialogues from MIB-3:

Agent K to Agent J: Tumhari salary itni nahi hai ki tum ye kaam kar sako.

Agent K to Agent J: Ye ek raaz hai jo kum salary walon ko nahi bataya jata.

Agent K to Agent J: Uski biwi ne muze jala hua khana khilaya tha fir bhi wo mera dost hai.

A few I found from script which are better fun in English:
Agent J: You gotta send me back to 1969…
Alien: First, we gotta get high.
Agent J: My man, for real!
Alien: No, I mean really high.

The movie runs for approx 1.30 hour and never bores you even for a minute. The script is well written with constant witty dialogues and comedy sequences and well directed with good animation.
I saw it in 2D and watching it in 3D’d have made it creepier and nicer :)
It’s full of fun and time-pass entertainment. Go watch it, you won’t be disappointed.
Let me know what do you think about the movie too :)

Here is an official trailer for you:

Xtreme Movie Review: Agneepath Agneepath Agneepath (2012)

Kancha Agneepath 2012

Agneepath… Agneepath… Agneepath…

Vruksh ho bhale khade,
ho ghane ho bade,
Ek patra chhanh bhi,
mang mat, mang mat, mang mat,
Agnipath, Agnipath, Agnipath…

Oh yes… This action-thriller will surely make you feel the word “Agneepath”. The movie, as promoted, has lived on REVENGE and lived upto the mark.
Sanjay Dutt as ‘Kancha’, Hritik Roshan as ‘Vijay Dinanath Chauhan’ and Rishi Kapoor as ‘Rauf Lala’ are well written characters & brilliantly played by each of them.
Scripts, Music, Action, and everything that makes a movie are at place; and holds it nicely.
The movie grabs you since the beginning till the end!

The emotions and the feeling of revenge are extra ordinarily sharpen, stretched to the limits in the script and greatly executed.
Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, a classic character played by the great Amitabh Bachchan has always left a great impact on the minds of viewers. And this remake, Agneepath (2012), is undisputedly effective, well directed and fully enjoyable movie.

Tu na thakega kabhi,
tu na thamega kabhi,
tu na mudega kabhi,
Kar shapath, Kar shapath, Kar shapath,
Agnipath, Agnipath, Agnipath…

“Vijay Deenanath Chauhan, poora naam, baap ka naam Deenanath Chauhan, gaon Mandwa.”

Vijay’s father, Dinanath Chauhan, was a teacher in the village Mandwa who taught him the path of fire. Kancha hangs Diananath & kicks him out of his way to become drug mafia and rule the people. Vijay leaves to Mumbai with her mother and eventually happens to know Rauf Lala after following Kancha in Mumbai. Vijay plays & uses Rauf to reach Kancha and challenges Kancha at the end & completes the REVENGE… as usual :)… During the movie Vijay is well supported by Kaali.

The movie is better watched :)

Sanjay Dutt AKA Kancha is HUGE. Sanjay has done a great job with his look, size & act… :)
The way Kancha enters holding Holy Geeta makes a great impact. Kancha recites a few funny dialogues like “To ramji Lankaa padhaar gaye hain; dekho vaanar to nahin aaye!”

Kancha Agneepath 2012-tu kya lekar aaya tha, tu kya lekar jaega
[ PS: this is my facebook cover image :) ]


tum kya leke aaye the…
tum kya leke jaoge…
rahejayega toh sirf ek he insaan…
sarva sakti sali sarva saktimaa…
kaancha…

As they have done a great job of filming “REVENGE”, some of the scenes are so intense that “a few girls” won’t like that… :) But that was quite building the roots of the story and let you feel heat of Agneepath.

About “Chikni Chameli”, surely I’d love to see Katrina 1000 times but not a single time like in this song! For me the dance steps were pathetic and music is good but a complete copy! Ofcourse music director duo Ajay-Atul copied from their marathi hit number “Kombadi”.
All songs are good, but my favourite is “Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin” by Sonu Nigam.
BTW did you notice the statutory warnings “Smoking is injurious to health” during the song after Katrina lit the bidis!!

Yes ofcourse, Priyanka as Kaali & Om Puri as Gaaytonde are good too…
Agneepath (1990) & Agneepath (2012) both are my favourites but which Vijay do you think is better?
Thanks Karan Malhotra & Karan Johar for the great remake.

Ye mahan drushya hai,
Chal raha manushya hai,
ashru, swed, rakt se,
lathpat, lathpat, lathpat..
Agnipath, Agnipath, Agnipath…

WOW awesome movie after a long time…

Extreme Movie Review: Singham (2011) Ajay Devgn

Dhing chika, Dhing chika, Dhing chika… This is what I got from singham, a ringtone… I hated Dabangg even more when it got National Award!
Don’t want to continue it in a post dedicated to Singham anyways!

if ( you like dabangg) {
Just go and enjoy Singham! This is pretty much mindless fun & laughter.
}

okay, so if you’re still with me then let me continue…

A bundle pack of abs, tight muscle and vardi (police uniform) make you no less than a super-man; this is the primary assumption of Singham.

Under false corruption charges Inspector Rakesh Kadam commits suicide, main culprit Jaykant Shikre (excellently played by Prakash Raj), a super-power politician from Goa.

Ajay Devgn as Singham, enters as an Inspector from a remote village, solving local issues in his unique-style. As per bollywood demand, Singham was destined to fall in love with Kavya (debut of Kajal Aggarwal). Movie does contain some songs & so called fairly childish love moments. You can totally utilize that time for washrooms & other needs.

Story line continues, in some xyz case our powerful villain had to appear before the macho Singham. As usual, verbal actions sowed the seeds of anger between the duo. Jaykant used his political power to transfer Singham to Goa City, in his area, to nail him down and started betrayals. I don’t want to get into further detail of what and when and how…

The vengeance saga continues with fairly comedy fight sequence and extra ordinarily unhuman stunts and mirthful dialogue sequences.

A few dialogues are:

jisme hai dam, wo faqt bajirao singham.
tera family bada hai, bahar mera truck khada hai…
meri zarooratein kam hai, isiliye mere zameer mein dum hai
kuch bhi karneka, Jaikant Shikre ka ego hurt nahi karna…
aali re aali, ata tuzi vari aali…
are ata mazi satakliree (this one was funny)
kya hua singham, is route ki sabhi laine vyast hai?…

Fight sequences I just cannot describe!! I just can’t stop laughing at that!!

Anyways, welcome back Ajay :)

No need to say, movie ended in an impractical way conveying “satyamev jayate” !! A few lines conveyed by Ashok Saraf (a constable), about Police in India are quite true! So ends one more over-action packed, masala hindi movie…

For those who want quick solution: Singham is the answer to the buzz-word of the century, corruption; rest wait for JanLokPal :)

Dhing chika, Dhing chika, Dhing chika…

Extreme Movie Review – Dum Maro Dum (2011)

And finally, Rohan Sippy’s “Dum Maaro Dum” ended the series of poor movies in 2011.

The best parts of the movie are Direction & Music, alongwith the good mixture of new characters and cool set of dialogues / one-liners. The way of story-telling and great back-ground music (by Midival Punditz) have added to it a lot.

Main Characters of Dum Maro Dum:
Prateik Babbar as Lorry
Abhishek Bachchan as ACP Vishnu Kamath
Rana Daggubati as DJ Joki
Bipasha Basu as Zoe
Aditya Pancholi as Lorsa Biscuta aka the Biscuit
Govind Namdeo as Rane
& ofcourse ‘Micheal Barbosa’

Lorry is a young scholar & footballer who couldn’t go with his girl-friend for studies in USA due to insufficient funds. Lorry’s friend Ricky tricks him to get involved in to drug smuggling in lieu of money.
ACP Vishnu Kamath is a regretting police officer who lost his family in an accident due to his corrupted ignorance towards drugs & thus now totally against drugs and all.
DJ Joki is a musician but someone who has got his aspiring girl-friend, Zoe, “spoiled” to a drug mafia, Biscuit.
Biscuit / Lorsa Biscuta is a point person between all the various Mafias all over in Goa.

ACP Kamath along with “selected cops” catches Lorry on airport with the drugs while DJ Joki tries to help Lorry and work with Kamath to find out ‘Micheal Barbosa’. The story revolves around these characters how they find out who ‘Micheal Barbosa’ is and saves Lorry.
The film has got good suspense and definitely nothing annoying! :)

Also a lot has been talked about Dipika Padukone and her skirt and her performance in ‘Dum Maro Dum’ title number!! There is NOTHING special or impressive about it; don’t believe the hype. But definitely the song Dum Maro Dum is great with lively beats and vocals.

The movie could have been much more successful and hit if Rohan Sippy’d have done “something” to DJ Joki and improved ending a bit!!
Zoe’s “character” & character in the movie was weak or can say not well written – in a poor dialogue when Zoe blames DJ Joki for her present.
DJ Joki’s character should have been little powerful!!
Abhishek has done a good acting as well as nice RAP Number in song ‘thayn thayn’. Govind Namdeo and Aditya Pancholi were good in their roles.

Rana Daggubati has got his bollywood-debut and his appearance is good in the movie – seems a promising star.
Angaraag Mahnata AKA Papon’s song ‘Jiyein Kyun’ is greatly sung and it keeps playing through-out the movie is splendid. Pritam Chakraborty’s music is great.
Almost all songs are nice but my favourite is ‘Jiyein Kyun’.

Movie has got some good dialogues, I’d like to list a couple of them:
“Jab zameer bikta hai tab jindagi bhi soot samet wasul karti hai”

“Mein sirf duty pe peeta hoon. Apne municipality bhaiyon se seekho, hamesha do-teen laga ke hi gutter mein ghuste hain”

“kehte hai jab koi marta hai toh jannat jata hai… par jab koi GOA mein marta hai toh kahin nahi jata…”

Also to note that this is the first bollywood film to be recorded in Dolby Surround 7.1, and hence the better music effect!

Well, it’s a good movie and for sure you can watch it!
BUT WAIT!! It’s given A certificate by sensor board; so better avoid it with family. :)
