First Review Katamarayudu by Umair Sandhu.

This movie is an out and out commercial entertainer. Director Kishore Kumar has ensured that there is plenty for Pawan Kalyan fans and the family audience. Pawan Kalyan has punch dialogues, high octane action sequences and all the right dance moves. He plays the good and the bad with ease and is a treat to watch on screen.The storyline may not be new for Tollywood cinema, but the director has tailor-made it for Pawan Kalyan and the mass audience. 

Pawan Kalyan is portrayed as a beefed up, invincible superhuman, who annihilates the enemy with his brute strength. Every frame seems to worship the actor, highlighting his smile and charm, much to the delight of his fans. He Steals the Show all the Way. He is in Terrific form. He Nailed it ! 

Shruti Haassan looks Stunning & gave Award Worthy Performance. Good Acting by all Supporting actors. Terrific Cinematography, Rocking music, Sharp Editing & Paisa Vasool Story ! 

Though loaded with fantastical commercial elements catering to Pawan Kalyan mass hero image, the decent plot, stunning music and spectacular visuals captured by cinematographer make Katamarayudu an enjoyable treat.

Seriously ! Pawan Kalyan gave One of the Best film & Performance ! He is Back with Bang ! His Fans will go gaga over him.

BLOCKBUSTER Written all over it 👏👏👏

First Review of Badrinath Ki Dulhania by Umair Sandhu

BADRINATH KI DULHANIA is a quintessential Bollywood romance and ticks all the customary boxes that make a love story work. Yet, Shashank Khaitan makes sure the screenwriting incorporates several amusing and compelling episodes that steer clear of rusty formulas that we are used to watching in films of this genre. Shashank also steers clear of full-scale melodrama, loud and familiar masala and earsplitting background score, which could’ve seeped in naturally, given the genre of the film. He keeps it subtle, but makes sure the film wins you over. As a storyteller, Shashank knows his fundas right and he gives his lead actors a well-knit, cohesive screenplay to peg their acting skills.

Furthermore, the soundtrack compliments the proceedings delightfully. ‘Title Track’ is hugely popular, while ‘Tamma Tamma ‘ has caught on big time too. Cinematography is Eye Catching. Editing is Sharp & Crispy. Production Designing is Classy.

Varun Dhawan gets the attitude of the character spot-on and pulls up a winning act. He reveals a sharp timing for comedy, but springs a big, big surprise in the emotional ones. In short, he makes you sit up, watch and applaud his act. Alia seems to be making the right career choices. UDTA PUNJAB, HIGHWAY and 2 STATES specifically proved that she could transcend the glamour quotient and  BADRINATH KI DULHANIA substantiates the fact that she will be the top contender at the awards season next year — with as many as three diverse performances getting nominated for the top honors. Their Chemistry is TERRIFIC. 

On the whole, BADRINATH KI DULHANIA is a beautifully textured love story that wins you over. There’s no stopping this one from hitting the bull’s eye. Sure-shot winner!
