Kick Movie Review

Cast:Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda, Nawazuddin Siddiqui 
Director: Sajid Nadiadwala 

SPOILERS ALERT

To give the Devil his due, Kick isn’t half as bad as some of the Bollywood flicks that moviegoers have been subjected to in recent months. 

Kick is the Sajid Nadiadwala's debut as a director. Sajid is a seasoned producer of money-spinning potboilers. It is no different from the films that his banner usually bankrolls. 

Kick revels in excess, which, for a film of its kind, is not necessarily a drawback. It dishes out everything in abundance. 

Eye-catching foreign locations, elaborately mounted action sequences, flashy pyrotechnics and stunts straight out of Hollywood superhero movies, song and dance routines bunged in randomly for occasional relief and loads of Dabangg-style dialoguebaazi are all par for the course here. 

Take it or lump it. Kick delivers enough harmless lowbrow entertainment not to be dismissed as a complete waste of time for its target audience: the diehard fan of Salman Khan.

It is another matter that the screenplay, which is credited to a quartet of writers, including Chetan Bhagat, is a messy mish-mash that swims in layers of nothingness.

There is one thought that repeatedly flashes across this critic’s mind as sajid peddles his ware over a runtime of two and a half hours. Has our tolerance threshold been so dramatically raised by monstrosities of the Humshakals kind that Kick resembles a solid hit out of the park?

Or is it simply that one has such low expectations these days from star-driven movies that are pitched as surefire blockbusters that even a half decent action flick acquires the looks of a possible breakthrough?

No matter what conclusion one eventually draws, this over-the-top thriller about a messianic superhero (Salman Khan), a never-say-die super cop (Randeep Hooda) and a sniffing, smirking, scowling baddie (Nawazuddin Siddiqui in his first major mainstream movie outing) caught in a convoluted cat-and-mouse game that stretches from Delhi to Warsaw is pedestrian without being outright abysmal. 

The male protagonist, Chandni Chowk lad Devi Lal Singh, Devi to friends, is an altruistic and infallible rabble-rouser who seeks a kick from risky encounters.

Life has no meaning for the guy unless it is packed with drama, tension and action at every turn. 
Devi ensures the wedding of an intransigent lady MLA’s daughter (Sumona Chakravarti) with his Gujju childhood buddy (Kavin Dave).

Minutes later, he turns up at an eatery and reduces a bunch of eve-teasers to pulp after delivering a sermon to the other guests aimed at shaming them for doing nothing to save the girl in distress.
A psychiatrist, Shaina Mehra (Jacqueline Fernandez), a diplomat’s daughter who has winged it to Delhi purportedly for the wedding, is witness to Devi’s serial acts of heroism.

Predictably, she falls in love with the man despite listing him in her smartphone as “Headache”.
The hero has a dad (Mithun Chakraborty) and mom (Archana Puran Singh, seen in a single scene) who are as prone to obstreperous dramatics as him.

The ‘headache’ spreads quickly. It first affects Shaina’s dad (Saurabh Shukla), whose blood pressure shoots up to nearly fatal levels.

Then, as the plot progresses and thickens, the source of the headache becomes a prestige issue for upright police officer Himanshu Tyagi, a man who takes pride in his unblemished track record.

The third pillar of the film is an exploitative healthcare company owner Shiv Gajra, who uses his snazzy hospitals to squeeze people dry.

He makes his first appearance a little into the second half and comes up against the same masked Robin Hood that the cop is on the trail of.

The disguised crime-buster is obviously on a mission and he has to contend with both the law and the outlaw. If only he knew how to deal with a patchy screenplay his task would have been much simpler. 
On the acting front, there are three distinct styles on show in Kick.

The first is the Salman Khan style, in which the actor is regarded as truly successful only if he can overshadow the character he is playing. 

Does he pull it off? Salman is good at playing Salman. He does it again with aplomb. 

The second variety is the one that Randeep Hooda demonstrates. A talented actor, he knows his chops, and does not an ounce more than is needed in a film like Kick. He is none the worse for it.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, despite being saddled with a weakly written character, shows blinding flashes of brilliance.

One expects the extraordinary from Kick only when Nawazuddin is on the screen. It is unfortunate for both the film and the audience that he isn’t on the screen often enough or long enough. 

Kick provides a kick only sporadically. For Salman Khan fans, that should be good enough.

Is Aamir Khan playing a drunkard in P.K.?



Amir lot of speculation around the title of the Rajkumar Hirani's P.K., the actual plot of the film seems to be out in the open. 
Aamir Khan starrer P.K. has been creating a lot of confusion over the title change. The film's title Peekay was changed to only two initials P.K. which seems to be the initials of a person's name.

The reason behind the name change seems to be simple. The makers did not want to give away the plot of the film as the first title suggested the film is about a drunkard which is supposed to be played by Aamir. 

According to the rumours, Raju wanted to keep the mystery around the film so he decided to camouflage it by changing the name of the film. 

After the success of the film 3 Idiots, Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani have collaborated for the second time for the film set to release on December 19 this year.

Amitabh Bachchan reveals first look for his film 'Shamitabh'

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has revealed the first look of his new film Shamitabh, directed by R Balki on Twitter. Well, to be fair, it's not much for the look of a film since all you can see in the photo is Amitabh Bachchan slouching on a chair. He has a beard uncannily similar to the one he had in Khuda Gawah and a scraggly mop of hair.

You also can't help but notice what looks like a black and white photo of Woody Allen in the background and a picture of the cover for HG Wells' War of The Worlds as well. Oh and on the right hand side, you can see Hannibal Lecter's famous quote, "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti." Though all you can see is the words " I ate his liver and fava beans."

If you are wondering what the word Shamitabh means, Bachchan has himself declared that it means nothing. He had tweeted out earlier, "#SHAMITABH ... THE TITLE OF MY NEW FILM WITH R BALKI.No.. the title #SHAMITABH does not have a particular meaning .. the reason for the name will be found in the film .. !!"

This is Bachchan's third film with R Balki. The two had earlier teamed up for Cheeni Kum and Paa. Shamitabh will also see the debut of veteran actor Kamal Haasan's younger daughter Akshara Haasan. The film also stars Dhanush.

Bachchan also posted about the look of the film on his blog. He wrote, "...that be the pensiveness from 'Shamitabh'... It is getting exceedingly difficult to preserve a look for a film or occasion when we have millions of mobile cameras following us and immortalising us... Thank you."

Femina Miss India 2014 winners dazzle at Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers India Couture Week, in Delhi



(L-R) fbb Femina Miss India 2014 winners Jhataleka Malhotra (first runner-up), Koyal Rana (fbb Femina Miss India World 2014) and Gail DaSilva (second runner-up) at the Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers show

Swirling chilli red lehengas and glittering jewels with two sparkling, dusky showstoppers - body beautiful Bipasha Basu and Chitrangda Singh - gave a glittering end to the Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers India Couture Week in association with Logix group, presented by FDCI.

To the notes of Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend, immortalised by the buxom Marilyn Monroe in the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, models who were front runners in the fashion business - from the lithe Aditi Gowitrikar to the dishy Muzammil Ibrahim - took the catwalk by the proverbial storm. The blingy diamond necklaces and emerald and ruby-studded earrings, along with elaborate gold chokers, displayed their fortitude against black sequinned gowns.

Then came the three-tiered ostentatious pearl necklaces worn with aplomb, teamed up with diamond hair jewellery and polki headturners, which were part of the Svara and Sondarya collection, in a show titled 'Parinay'.

The stunning, folding chandelier-laden set, conceptualised by Sumant Jaikrishnan, stole the show, as Sufi touches were added with Urdu verses to create an uber chic setting.

It was a fitting finale which had all the makings of an evening to remember, as it had the ingredients of mystique, brilliant jewels and statuesque models in couture's finest offerings.
