Two movies have been released this week. One is Suneel Darshan's SHAKALAKA BOOM BOOM and other one is Jag Mundhra's PROVOKED. Well my opinion on the two films:
Well, what can be said about this film? This film has Up*n Pa**l and Cel*na J**tly (is it the right spelling?) in PIVOTAL roles! . Isn't that the reason enough to avoid it? Moreover, there's music (and voice too...) by Mr. HI**SH nasal twang R*S**MM*IY*. If promos are anything to go by all the protagonists can be taught acting by any slum-dweller. An actress who stars in this film, made her debut last-year with two awesome flicks. My message to her: Ms. Kang*n*, after your first two films, we liked you immensely. Is it necessary for you to star in such dreadful movies? I definitely look forward to you next film directed by the person who directed your first movie.
This one's the film I really look forward to. After all, it's based on a real-life incident. Domestic violence is a thing which Indian women suffer from all over the world enduringly. If this film becomes a platform for creating awareness against the brutality inside the walls, it's very much welcome. Sometimes, the premise of a story is so strong that it overpowers all its flaws. I think, PROVOKED is one such film. But wait for Monday, you are going to see national party-workers (oops! I'm sorry! they should be called the carriers of Indian legacy, na!) burning posters (and theatres too!). They are gonna say, "This film is anti-Indian Culture. After all the duty of an Indian woman is to endure whatever her husband does." This one's box-office fate (it's already declared a flop) surely indicates that.
By the way I'll be coming up with reviews of only PROVOKED. Do let me know what do you think about these films irrespective of my opinions.
