Top 5 Overrated South Indian Actresses

More than Bollywood, South Indian Actresses were considered as an eye-candy or more of an after thought in every other movie. With limited opportunities to really shine like the Lady Superstar Nayanthara, Anushka Shetty and Trisha Krishnan, they're quite a few overrated or supremely hyped actresses in South India. So, here's my Top 5 List (which will hopefully not offend any die-hard fan out there).

5. Samantha Akkineni

Now, before you accuse me of overrating a good actress, I'm not judging her character or her status, I'm only mentioning her choices of movies and her skills displayed. Having her voice dubbed (sometimes) takes away half the intensity and impact from her dialogue delivery and playing the repeated sidekick whose part can be completely deleted from the movie (and it wouldn't make a difference) doesn't help much either. But, thanks to her looks, decent acting and dancing skills she stayed in the industry long enough to become famous. The only reason shes overrated is that of the lack of diversity in her acting as well as her selection of roles which is too normal to be given any extra credit. Besides that, her movies like 'Nee Thaane En Ponvasantham' and 'Eega' were impressive which is why she still holds on to all those fans today. 


4. Anu Emmanuel

If there is an actress whose luck is envied by others its Anu Emmanuel. She has been in the industry for almost six years now, but, unfortunately remains a mediocre preference for her performances. An actress is expected to be on point with her facial expressions and voice modulations all the time, and that is exactly what Anu Emmanuel has misinterpreted. Considering that shes American, it might have been tough for her to understand our line of films and performances.

But, as I mentioned before, her luck and looks, mainly played the role in bagging her some good movies, not forgetting to mention her boldness on screen. But, being bold on-screen itself seems overrated and hence she is too. She hasn't been labelled as an eye candy yet, so hopefully, she realizes that and make better choices in the future.


3. Kajal Aggarwal

You guys probably know about the female cat in Tom and Jerry; appears once in a fortnight, dances her way with all the grace and style and distracts both of them from entertaining us. Kajal is definitely that cat from the show, who ends up at the wrong place at the most interesting times, distracting both the hero and the audience from the main plot. Her dances and dreary performances are too lazy to pay attention to, but, inevitable to ignore like her performances in 'Thuppakki', 'Maattrraan' or 'Vivegam' for instance. A few films were amazing but barely reflected her contribution although she gained critical appreciation for 'Do Lafzon Ki Kahaani'. Enclosing, I'd like to say that Kajal has tons of potential to showcase her skill, but, that can only be seen if the directors realise that and give her better scripts instead of casting her as the unwanted female cat in every other movie and wasting her skillset.


2. Rashmika Mandanna

Welcome the Zarine Khan of Sandalwood (and Tollywood). The one who is supposed to be an example of a bad actress. But, she can dance and her face is so cute! let's make her the National sensation ignoring all the good ones around just for that! I still fail to realise how Rashmika got her overnight fame taking in context, her recent and rather awful performances. Now, I'm not bashing her, but clearly, she is overrated. People who like her probably didn't notice that she can't speak or move an inch of her face except for that smile which we will eventually get bored of. Her movies are quite mediocre (considering that I also failed to understand why 'Geetha Govindam' was such hit excluding Vijay Deverakonda's performance).

There is a reason why I didn't compare her to Katrina Kaif is that Katrina can dance and does heavy gymnastics. That isn't a talent to be shown off in Bollywood but is definitely a noteworthy skill. Well, at least she has some skills unlike the person in reference here. Besides smiling and being goofy, I don't see anything better in her performances which is really tiresome and after her marriage controversy, people are expecting something worth their attention from her and its all in her hands to shape her career in a better way.


1. Amy Jackson

As always, there surely is, a #1 in this list as well and it's none other than...[drumrolls]..Amy Jackson! Her career graph will always remain a mystery to me. So, let me be specific, she does not know the language, she is not good at expressing any emotion, she probably doesn't understand the plot of the movies she is cast in, but most of all, how she gets all those top rated directors to sign her alongside such megastars will never be understood by people like us. Being British, she rather got a warm welcome from Kollywood through 'Madrasapattinam (2010)' and guess what?

After all these years of striving in the industry, she has learnt absolutely nothing! Her performances are paler than ever, her other skills like dancing or crying haven't improved even slightly and her expressions are out of question! But, '2.0' is coming up folks! She plays a robot Barbie in it; how convenient. Shankar finally found a role made for her. So yet again, we cheer, lead on and shower heart emojis all over her. 'Thangamagan' and 'Ek Deewana Tha' were only marks of her lacking hard work and talent and for 'The Villain', I still have no words to say. But, she barely has to be worried about anything because of all the attention and opportunities that directors, as well as people, will continue to pour on her. But, just so you didn't realise earlier, Amy Jackson is overrated.

Top 5 Reasons Why Thugs of Hindostan Will Fail Critically

Now, before I dissect the reasons why Thugs of Hindostan will fail critically, I want to make it clear that I wish nothing but success for the movie. I will walk into the theatre with an open mind, and if the film proves me wrong, I'll be the first person to admit my mistakes. So, with that out-of-the-way, let's start picking apart the Top 5 Reasons.


1. The Poor Track Record of the Director

Taking the recent epic blockbusters 'Baahubali' and 'Padmaavat' as examples, although the characters and the star cast were the essential reasons for the films' success, the primary and the dominant reason why those movies made a huge impact was because of the directors S. S. Rajamouli and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who are the premier superstars of their films. Cut back to TOH, Writer-Director Vijay Krishna Acharya, who is the architect behind 'Tashan' (a critical and commercial failure) and 'Dhoom 3' (another critical failure) has a poor track record when it comes to his previous works, is not considered as a superstar director, and is mainly an unknown name in the industry. So, watching his name on-screen didn't get me particularly excited.


2. Similarities to Pirates of the Caribbean

From the characters to the action set pieces and production design, you can't help but compare TOH to the Pirates of the Caribbean. Aamir Khan's character Firangi Mallah is at the bottom, an Indian version of Captain Jack Sparrow (played by Johnny Depp), who even has a distinct accent like Mr. Sparrow, walks and dances unusually like Sparrow, chugs a bottle of whiskey like our beloved drunkard Sparrow and may also cheat like our five-installment hero Jack Sparrow including Amitabh Bachchan looking all the more identical to Black Beard. And is Fatima Sana Sheikh going to portray the more serious and equally attractive version of Angelica (played by Penélope Cruz)? Let's move on!


3. The Other Characters

Taking nothing away from her amazing dance skills, Katrina Kaif once again fills in as a glamour quotient in the film. So far, we've seen her dance indoors and outdoors within extravagant sets, covered in glittering outfits, so maybe the director is using the best of her abilities. Also, by not declining his incredible talent and bravado, Amitabh Bachchan's character also looks like an extension of Kattappa (played by Sathyaraj) from 'Baahubali' franchise. He is the leader of his battalions like the backstabber Katappa, swinging and blinging the sword like the tenacious Kattappa, but, the only dubious aspect from Mr Bachchan's character is him jumping and kicking everyone around with his far-fetched aerobic abilities.


4. Video Game Visual Effects

With nearly a 300 cr budget, this film is, for the most part, drenched in CGI, similar to its counterpart 'Baahubali'. But setting excuses like time, budget and availability aside, the visual effects, at least in the trailer looked below par. But, I'll reserve my final judgement till I see the movie on a big screen, however, judging by the trailers the VFX used in certain shots and scenes looked they're plucked straight out of an expensive video game. It seemed like 'Baahubali' set new standards for computer-generated imagery in Indian Cinema and TOH might fail in the midst of being successful.


5. Following a Trend

Speaking of 'Baahubali', it's quite obvious that TOH is riding the coattails of the immense success of S.S. Rajmouli's magnum opus. It is also apparent that Patriotic movies are the trending genre in Bollywood right now (look at Akshay Kumar's success rate in the past few years). So, it's a no-brainer to mix both successful genres and make a noteworthy movie. But, the bigger question is, will people respond to it critically and make it a crowd-pleaser? I don't think so! But let's wait and see.

Top 5 Overrated Bollywood Actresses [Part 2]

With Part 1 of our Overrated Bollywood Actresses out-of-the-way, we decided to return back with Part 2, simple because of we left out few doozies in the previous one. So, let's roll!

Related - Top 5 Overrated Bollywood Actresses [Part 1], Top 5 Underrated Bollywood Actresses


5. Yami Gautam

For someone who has been in the show business for nearly a decade, you would expect Yami to have upped her game by now, but clearly not. Even with box office as well as the critical hits like 'Kaabil', 'Vicky Donor' and 'Badlapur', things haven't been bright for Yami (except her fair and lovely ads of course) because of her almost identical characters in every movie. She is definitely talented but people will rarely appreciate a repeated role with the same storyline and the same personalities. Her role in 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' might have been a turning point which we can judge better in the future, but her films including blunders like 'Action Jackson', 'Total Siyappa' and 'Sanam Re' have been the prime reasons for the low success graph in her career so far. But she definitely is better than some top Bollywood actresses and that means, with the right movies she'll undoubtedly earn the fame she deserves one day.


4. Daisy Shah

Introducing herself as one of Salman Khan's minions, Daisy was subjected to the same fate as the others, thanks to her overrated choice of roles in plain old masala Bollywood movies. It's almost a miracle that Salman Khan bounced back from erroneous movies like 'Race 3' and 'Jai Ho', but, unfortunately, Daisy wasn't a part of it. She made a worse choice by featuring in the 'Hate Story' franchise which was already looked down upon by critics and audience. She might look like a new face but her career started in the South Indian film industries from around 2011. One could think that it's enough time given for a worthy actress to prove herself. But with such movies, Daisy Shah remains on the dimmer light of Bollywood.


3. Shraddha Kapoor

The "ex-national crush" created a buzz from her debut in 'Aashiqui 2'. But it took two more movies that it wasn't acting that she did in her first movie but she was just being herself. Like we didn't have enough daily soap actresses to flood tears and play the innocent Disney Princess already, Shraddha became the new annoyingly sweet and predictable princess of Bollywood. Her one film to change her fate (Haseena Parkar) didn't work out and within no time she was back to giving us obvious flops like 'Rock On 2' and 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu'. Her percentage of versatility in the characters she has played divided by the number of her movies is zero because anything divided by zero is zero! Her drudging and wearisome performances in 'Half Girlfriend', 'Ok Jaanu' and 'Stree' are completely ignored because one and only one reason, she's cute. People put up her photos, praise her dancing skills and her off-camera attitude that everything else rules out but she still survives in the industry and that is why she belongs in this list.


2. Kajol Devgn

Who doesn't love the bubbly boyish girl from 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'? Kajol is clearly one of the most successful actresses from our beloved Karan Johar's lot. But there's a difference in loving the actors and rating them. I would never judge her acting skills but I'd be lying if I didn't say that she's been given a lot more credit than she deserves. It's probably Kajol from whom Kareena Kapoor learnt all that overacting and enthusiasm. With movies like 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham', 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' and 'DDLJ', she earned enough fame but if such movies were to be released today, it would've been dreadful. Let's not even talk about some of her choices like 'Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi', 'Hulchul' and 'Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya'; the limit bar of overacting probably cracked and her recent outings 'Dilwale' and 'Helicopter Eela' didn't help either, but, she is currently safe because of her older movies like 'My Name Is Khan', and 'We Are a Family' were critically accepted well. Call it the era of the 90s or her choice of movies, I think it's reasonable to have her on this list.


1. Sonam Kapoor

Being one of the most controversial and overrated actresses, Sonam Kapoor is the first one I'd like to mention here. She started with chick flicks and movies with mild storylines which barely worked out for her but then, with 'Neerja' and 'Mausam', she finally gained attention from the critics and media. Unfortunately, then came disasters like 'Sanju', 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' and 'Veere Di Wedding' which were already black marked due to their controversies and her performance in both these movies were appalling enough to label her as 'overrated'. She may be a passionate fashionista but it's valid to say that she isn't that good of an actress. As observed, her skills are highly dull and careless in movies like 'I Hate Luv Storys', 'Bewakoofiyaan' and 'Khoobsurat' while it is nearly irritating in 'Aisha', 'Pad Man' and 'Dolly Ki Doli'. But then again, being called overrated doesn't hinder her capacity (if she has) and only her future projects can prove that to us.

Top 5 Best Classic Horror Movies of All Time

Before we conclude this year's Halloween Special, how about we go back 30, 40 or even 50 years back to take a closer look on some of the Best Classic Horror Movies? Nevertheless, I'm sure that we missed out on quite a few Classics, and we hope that someday we get to do a Part 2 and talk about all the other films. So, presenting the Top 5 Best Classic Horror Movies of All Time.

Related - Top 5 Horror Movies of 2017 and 2018Top 5 Recent Scary Movies to Watch This Halloween


5. The Thing (1982)

Director - John Carpenter
Starring - Kurt Russell, Keith David and Wilford Brimley

Set in the frigid weather of Antartica, The Thing tells the story of a group of American Government researchers who were stranded within a trepidation of an extra-terrestrial entity which is causing conflict and taking over the world with it's ungodly and imitation abilities. Presented with its dreadful gory scenes, the special effects in this films were outstanding. From the imagination to the creation and the execution, the gruesome hair-raising scenes in this film gave me chills and honestly that's what made this film so special.

Carpenter's ability to capture both beautiful and petrifying shots must be appreciated alongside with the film's remarkably written screenplay. The compacted tension between the characters and the importance of their decision making was explained masterfully and kept the movie moving without any intervals. Overall, The Thing was one-of-a-kind and gave me those nightmarish shudders very often. I'm guessing that we'll never see a movie like this again and I'm happy that I took the time to sit and marvel the brilliance on-screen.


4. The Exorcist (1973)

Director - William Friedkin
Starring - Linda Blair and Jason Miller

A tale of exorcism that is loosely based on actual events, The Exorcist revolves around the demonic possession of a young girl and the purging of this demon through an exorcism performed by two priests. The Exorcist is a tense narrative of good versus evil where the paranormal aspects of the film is grounded in biblical faith. The contrast between good and evil is depicted perfectly through the opposing forces of religious faith and paranormal vengeance. The staircase spider walk is possibly one of the most iconic terrifying scenes in cinematic horror history and it straight up assaults the viewer with its powerful shocking visuals. The special effects used in this film is a sledgehammer to the head where it elevates the film to a higher level of frightening. An in-your-face horror storytelling, The Exorcist is a finely crafted tale of spirituality.


3. Eyes Without a Face (1960)

Director - Georges Franju
Starring - Édith Scob, Alida Valli and Pierre Brasseur

A surgeon causes an accident which leaves his daughter disfigured, and he embarks on a mission to give her a new face. Georges Franju’s Eyes without a Face is vastly disturbing and poetic. A film on human experiments and facial transplants, this movie deals in themes of morality, insanity, superficiality of appearance and identity. The director attempts to give his own take on these themes with a film that is more arthouse than commercial filmmaking. Unlike the rest of the films in this list, Eyes without a Face does not have a solid story. This movie is chilling for its haunting but brilliant cinematography and bone-chilling scores. Eyes Without a Face plays on anxiety and fear. The audience will be able to empathize with the obsessive actions of the protagonist at first. Driven by guilt and paternal love, the protagonist becomes a monster and his insanity takes a toll on the viewer’s stomach for graphic terror. Vulgar, shocking and expressive, Eyes without a Face is a melange of horror and metaphorical poetry.

2. Rosemary’s Baby (1968)

Director - Roman Polanski
Starring - Mia Farrow, Ruth Gordon and John Cassavetes

Roman Polanski’s adaption of the novel with the same name resulted in a horror movie that is ominous and grisly all at the same time. Rosemary’s Baby kickstarted the trend of films that centred around the belief in the occult. A psychological thriller that revolves around a fearful pregnant woman, Rosemary’s Baby deals with important themes such as rape and paranoia. The very relevant themes presented to the viewer is accented by the acting of Mia Farrow, who plunges us into her world where we share her doubts and mistrusts. The devil is truly in the details with this one. Polanski’s leads us down a spiral staircase of dread where the scares from the film come from the slow-burning extrication of Rosemary’s mental state and where the audience are afraid to draw a line between hallucinations and the paranormal. A diabolical milestone of cinematic horror, Rosemary’s Baby is the synonym word for creepy.

1. Psycho (1960)

Director - Alfred Hitchcock
Starring - Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles and John Gavin

It’s hard to have a list of classic horror films and not have Hitchcock’s Psycho rank-fluctuate among the top 3 spots. Arguably one of the most celebrated and horrifying cinematic classics of all time, Psycho is laden with histrionic realism and shocking visuals. Psycho’s horror lies in how it captures the audience as the camera’s point-of-view. The viewer is always left reeling from the peril of being slain themselves because of how immersive the film’s camerawork is. As the story builds steadily to its chilling climax, being forced to challenge Norman Bates directly gives a claustrophobic effect to the viewer and that itself is the payoff. Watch out for the sensational shower scene and the stair-murder as it jumps out as one the most arresting segments in the film and it is the very experience of seeing them unfold before your eyes that demonstrates how frighteningly clever Hitchcock is. A horror masterpiece that has stood the test of time, Psycho, is unnerving till this day.

Top 5 Recent Scary Movies to Watch This Halloween

With Halloween 2018 right around the corner, we here at the National JFMF headquarters thought it would be a noble idea to recommend you guys few (not great) but decent Horror Movies to watch this weekend. As we already posted the 'Top 5 Horror Movies of 2017 and 2018', discussing few high-profile scary films wasn't such a bad idea after all. So, here we go!

5. Leigh Whannell's - "Insidious: Chapter 3" | Rating - 3/5

Starring - Dermot Mulroney, Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell and Lin Shaye

Typically, when a movie reaches the third instalment, a major bummer is usually expected. Things get repetitive, tame and lifeless. For this reason, my expectations were pretty low for this movie as I felt sceptical before entering the movie theatre. But, Insidious 3 was surprisingly better and superlative. Writer-Director, Leigh Whannel's impressive screenplay and his approach to craft a petrifying scary scene without any false jump scares is commendable. Insidious 3 was a startling experience and didn't take an asinine advantage of silly jump scares.

4. M. Night Shyamalan's - "The Visit" | Rating - 3/5

Starring - Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould and Kathryn Hahn.

After making a series of awful movies, people were uncertain when it came to M. Night Shyamalan, most of them thought that there is nothing left in him to contribute, and that helped this film a lot. Story-wise, this movie had nothing new to offer except for the little plot twist in the end. But, on a filmmaking standpoint, Shyamalan maintained that bizarre vibe in each place very well, they're a couple of jump-scares that were well shot and the comedic element in the entire movie was completely hysterical. Overall, The Visit is certainly better than I expected it to be, it was funny, scary and overall an enjoyable movie. A complete surprise!

3. James Wan's - "The Conjuring 2" | Rating - 3.5/5

Starring - Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson 

A tactful James Wan venture which was termed scarier than its prequel, Conjuring 2 was admittedly a level setter for future horror movies. Though the real story of the Enfield poltergeist is much more interesting than the movie, the film was successful in receiving positive reviews from critics and grossed over $320 million worldwide. The story revolves around a single mother raising four kids in North London who experiences the torture of Bill Wilkins who is controlled by the demonic spirit Valak. The actors including Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and Madison Wolfe have performed extraordinarily and the frequent creepy scenes keep you on your toes the whole time. In simpler words, an ideal film for this Halloween.

2. David F. Sandberg's - "Lights Out" | Rating - 4/5

Starring - Teresa Palmer and Gabriel Bateman

When was the last time you heard your heart beating super fast? This film will get on your nerves and I'm not even exaggerating. The plotline seems simple and quite ordinary on the outside but the constant jump scares and the haunting background music gets to you real easy. The film received positive reviews as well and was a box office success, grossing $148 million against a budget of $4.9 million. Teresa Palmer and Maria Bello are expressive and effective in their performances while the cinematography and music are appreciable. The Diana spirit which appears only in the dark makes each scene more thrilling and gets you gulping tensely in the first 15 minutes itself. Its better than many popular horror movies and surely is worth a watch.

1. David Robert Mitchell's - "It Follows" | Rating - 4/5

Starring - Maika Monroe

Correlating to the trend that is emerging in this contemporary era. It Follows never pursued the hackneyed route with ridiculous jump scares, indolent narration, and insipid direction. The retro narrative style was reminiscent of the 80's horror movies and the director brilliantly used the technical aspects like cinematography and background music to build up the tension in every peculiar and significant scene. Altogether, It Follows enthralled me throughout the runtime and achieved a tremendous standard in the horror movie genre. It had that eerie inexplicable vibe circled around it and is most definitely worth a watch.

Top 5 Creepy Horror Movie Facts That You Need To Know

[The following article is not for the faint of heart, it might contain specifics about death, murder and exorcism. Please proceed with caution.]

Whether you believe in paranormal or not, horror movies are always and will remain a major part of childhood and adulthood for many different reasons. Be it the excitement, fear or fun, watching these films is an experience that no one ever wants to miss. However, they're many bone-chilling facts and inspirations behind the movies that we love and I've carefully selected few best ones especially for you guys. Here we go!

1. The Exorcist is Real

Based on a novel by William Peter Blatty, the real story of The Exorcist stemmed from real-life incidents of a boy named 'Roland Doe'. In early January 1949, shortly after his beloved Aunt Harriet’s death, Ronald began to experience scratching sounds and water dripping from the floors and walls of his room. In addition to that, the most outlandish thing is that his mattress would move mysteriously. Ronald's family consulted doctors, psychiatrists, and their local Lutheran ministers which resulted in a myriad of unexplained events.

Additionally, the production of the film didn't go as planned either, a baby got injured by a motorcycle, people from the crew unfortunately died, and a baffling fire accident horrified the entire crew out of nowhere and left only Regan MacNeil’s (Linda Blair) room intact. These incidents made the team believe that the set might be cursed.

2. Ripper Behind the Scream

Daniel Harold Rolling aka 'The Gainesville Ripper' who mercilessly murdered five college students in Gainesville, Florida over four days is the inspiration behind 'Scream (1996)' directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson.

The incidents initiated in August 1990 when Daniel Harold Rolling first broke into 17-year-olds Christina Powell and Sonja Larson's apartment. Surprisingly, none of The University of Florida students or security didn’t hear Rolling enter the building. First, he found Christina Powell asleep on a couch downstairs and left her alone. He then quietly went upstairs to Sonja Larson's room, taped her mouth, held her wrists behind her back and let loose a series of violent blows with a knife.

He then went downstairs to Powell, and she sadly experienced the same violent conduct as her roommate Larson, in addition to being raped. Powell was barraged face-first onto the ground, and Rolling stabbed her five times in the back.

The next day, things took a horrific turn, when Rolling murdered an 18-year-old Christa Hoyt by cutting off her head and sat her up in bed. 23-year-olds Tracy Paules and Manuel Taboada were also destined with the same fate as Police mentioned were in the wrong place at the wrong time. The series of horrific college murders by Rolling horrified the community and later became the inspiration behind the cult-classic.

3. The Real Deal of 'The Conjuring 2'

Similar to the events in The Conjuring 2, the Hodgson family in Enfield, London were haunted by a creepy old man's spirit named Bill. Bill did, in fact, die in the recliner chair due to a brain haemorrhage. A rare disturbing video is still available on YouTube where Janet speaks with a deep voice as Bill. Additionally, inexplicable knocks on the walls, things moving and the police officer reporting that she saw a chair move opposite to her was all real. Images of Janet 'levitating' were also captured and the most interesting part is that the role the Warrens played a much smaller role in the Enfield Poltergeist case as opposed to what was shown in the film. They're simply one of the many paranormal investigators who visited the family during these horrific times.

4. Annabelle: The Notorious

In real life, the Annabelle doll is gifted by a mother to her daughter and the owners had no satanic cult relations and never ever tried to cast away the notorious doll as opposed to what we saw in the film. But, they're several reports from the owners describing that the doll moved from one room to another without any help and real blood was found on the doll's head and chest. After performing a seance, the medium detailed that the evil spirit possessing the doll belongs to Annabelle Higgins, who had died at the age of seven and her body was buried under the victim's apartment. Ed and Lorraine Warren disconfirmed the statements and affirmed that the little girl died in a motorcycle accident outside the apartment building.

Warrens also recount messages like 'Help Us' would appear on a paper with a childish handwriting around the owners' home. Warrens also claim that the evil doll also took the life of a young lad who visited their possessed Occult Museum years later and got into a mysterious motorcycle accident after taunting the doll.

5. An Absolute 'Psycho'

During the production of 1960 classic horror movie Psycho, a horrendous incident took place as one of Janet Leigh's body double was murdered on the set brutally. It was later revealed that one of the handymen working on the production slaughtered her to impress directed Alfred Hitchcock.

Top 5 Horror Movies of 2017 and 2018

When it comes to Horror-Thriller movies, there is surely something fascinating that draws us to experience all the fear and thrill that they can give. From Hannibal Lector to the iconic ghost face that every kid wants to dress up as, there are all these scary films that have the ability to make this month all the more fun for you. Connecting you to our Top 5 Most Popular Ghosts of Hollywood as per tradition, behold the best horror movie playlist for this Halloween.

5. David F. Sandberg's - "Annabelle: Creation" (2017) | Starring - Stephanie Sigman and Talitha Bateman.

Being called much better than it's predecessor, Annabelle: Creation downright scared the hell out of me with its iconic eerie porcelain doll and the creepy girl Janice (Talitha Bateman). The story introduces a couple who've lost their daughter in a car accident a decade ago, open their home to provide shelter for Sister Charlotte and six girls left homeless by the closing of their orphanage. The couple holds a dark secret behind the closed doors of their daughter's room which is unleashed by one of the girls, Janice. The background music and screenplay are undoubtedly first-rate and the performances of each and every role are outstanding.  The film is the fourth installment in 'The Conjuring Universe' but not necessarily similar, because it adds so much more intensity and thrill to the plot which was not quite adequate in the previous ones. If you want to experience the spooky jitters of a well-presented horror movie or are interested in knowing Annabelle's actual origin, then this is the ideal movie to watch.

4. John Krasinski's - "A Quiet Place" (2018) | Starring - Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

Starring Emily Blunt and John Krasinski in the lead roles, A Quiet Place tells us the story of a family trapped in an apocalyptic wasteland where even a tiny amount of sound, triggers monstrous creatures which as displayed in the movie are indestructible. Story, screenplay, characters, performances, background score and sound effects were the main traits that Krasinski (who also directed the film) used to make a heartwarming and an extremely terrifying film. The dialogues are pretty much non-existent and to tell an engaging story within 90 minutes, and at the same time developing the relationship between the characters is a tough task, but, Krasinski did a masterful job. Overall, this film is a complete bloodcurdling experience which shouldn't be missed.

3. Andy Muschietti's - "IT" (2017) | Starring - Bill Skarsgård and Various.

Deriving the original story from the well known Stephen King's novel, 'It' will always be one of my favourite recommendations. The story revolves around seven kids from Derry, Maine who, form a team together in order to destroy a shape-shifting demon which emerges every 27 years to prey on the town's children. While the screenplay and the cinematography are admirable, it is Bill Skarsgård's excellent portrayal of the dancing clown-Pennywise which is the real treat to watch. Actors like Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Jack Dylan Grazer and Finn Wolfhard have been highly remarkable in their performances as well including the musical score which is just splendid. Being the most profitable horror film as well as setting numerous records (grossing $700 million worldwide) if 'it' isnt a must watch from this list I don't know which one is.

2. Ari Aster's - "Hereditary" (2018) | Starring - Toni Collette and Alex Wolff.

Directed by Ari Aster, Hereditary stars  Toni Collette and Alex Wolff in the lead roles along with Milly Shapiro, and Gabriel Byrne as the supporting cast. Applauded and celebrated as one of the best horror movies of recent times, the unsettling atmosphere and the disturbing imagery of the film will mess with you for a long time. It's also an exquisitely shot film with top-notch performances and was directed masterfully by Aster who made use of the setting, environment, characters, background score to assemble a disconcerting vibe and ensured that it's maintained throughout the film. Hereditary was exceptional, and there's no doubt about it. A must watch for every Horror movie fan.

1. Jordan Peele's - "Get Out" (2017) | Starring - Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams.

Directed by Jordan Peele, Get Out is most definitely one of the best, if not the best movie of 2017 and accorded an Academy Award to director Peele in the Best Original Screenplay category. Credited as a Horror-Thriller or a Psychological-Thriller, this film explores a controversial yet very significant topic about the treatment of African-Americans, and it is once again Jordan Peele's impeccable screenplay which makes the movie a must watch. Every single scene was crafted with perfection, preciseness and tremendous skill as you will appreciate the movie more when seeing it for the second time. If you're one of the many few who haven't yet watched the film, do yourself a big favour and check it out immediately. Masterful filmmaking at it's best!

Top 5 Overrated Bollywood Actresses

With increasing competition and ruthless judgement from the audience on all the ladies of Bollywood, there are a few who might find social media alerts like these, helpful to up their games. Here are the Top 5 such Actresses who could use a wake up call in their careers.

5. Kriti Sanon

Now, I haven't got much to complain about Kriti Sanon except pointing out how ordinary she is. She has the considerable fame and supports to take up new types of roles but she prefers the cute and kind girl next door. The concept of "girl next door" is overrated already and the present generation expect actresses to surprise them by being more expressive as well as experimental. Kriti amongst all the competition with actresses like Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor, Kiara Advani and Taapsee Pannu has managed to create a notable fame for herself and its time she really makes good use of it. Adding to that her performances in 'Heropanti', 'Dilwale', 'Raabta' and '1 Nenokkadine' are okay and being called an 'okay actress' is nearly the worst thing. But since she's still young and spirited, maybe we can hope for some memorable films by her in the future.

4. Disha Patani

Still a newbie, you may be thinking that it's unfair to judge her this soon but honestly, I don't see her being successful in the future years at Bollywood at all. She is dumber than Kriti Sanon judging by her crummy and forgettable performances in 'Baaghi 2', 'Kung Fu Yoga' and 'Loafer' (Telugu). But, I also agree that she was sweet to look at in 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story'. Her smile gave her the overnight fame along with a title national crush which faded away just as quickly which brings me to point out how inexpressive she is and also that it gets really difficult to analyse the gravity of her emotions in a particular scene. (sound similar to Kristen Stewart?) But then again she has adequate attention on her to change her path and we really hope she does.

3. Kareena Kapoor Khan

Coming from a popular background, Kareena Kapoor came in prepared to slay in Bollywood. She won the Best Debut Award and till date, owns Six Filmfare Awards. But the reason she's in this list is that for her overacting. While Katrina Kaif doesn't do enough, Kareena Kapoor overdoes it. With a Sanskaari Beti constantly battling eyelashes to the crazy hyper diva, she always is either loud, jumpy or over dramatic. With the long list of her movies, she did manage to bag some good ones in between, like 'Talaash', 'Kurbaan', '3 Idiots' and 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'. I also realized that she stays stylish and groomed no matter the character she's playing. She's always the hot doctor or the gorgeous teacher. Except for four seconds in 'Jab We Met',  she has never dared to play de-glam roles which are an admired thing these days. Her performances are predictable and similar in almost all her movies which have finally brought her down to this list. 

2. Katrina Kaif

It's a very obvious choice because she is one of the worst actresses in the industry but surprisingly the most hardworking one too because everyone knows the dedication she had to learn all these dance forms and stunts while she could've paid more attention to learning Hindi and maybe taking some legit acting classes. But she wasn't all that bad in the beginning, considering some decent performances in movies like 'Meri Brother ki Dulhan', 'Rajneeti' and 'New York', but after 'Ek Tha Tiger' in 2012, which according to me was one of the most gruesome performances of hers, her success graph started descending rapidly. Her roles being very pale and annoyingly ordinary paved a way for talented actresses like Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma take over her limelight. 'Bang! Bang!', 'Baar Baar Dekho', 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', 'Dhoom 3' and the latest 'Tiger Zinda Hai' are all reflections of her dreary portrayals of trivial roles. It's high time she starts improving or she'll always remain the unskilled and dull eye candy of Bollywood.

1. Jacqueline Fernandez

When I say I've saved the best for the last, I wholeheartedly meant it. I don't have much to assert since famous critics like Rajeev Masand and Anupama Chopra have done it for me. If there is an actress who I never feel sorry for when she gets poor reviews, its Jacqueline. Her performance in her debut despite winning the Best Debut Award was slammed by critics who said "easy on the eyes, appears confident but has precious little to do" which in my opinion, applies to all her movies. Some of her other reviews so far include comments like "she's a pinprick on a balloon","she's a blathering bimbo who finds no pleasure in her role" and also "she struts around like a wound up automaton that is all decked up but has nowhere to go" which may all seem very rude but if you've watched some of her movies then you know that she's really happy and annoying most of the time. But I personally appreciate her performances in 'Brothers' as well as 'Roy' but since both of them were commercial flops, she's probably sticking to playing the over-energetic eye candy or an item dancer. Her Hollywood debut is barely known due to horrible advertising in India but right now, it's important that she doesn't repeat her past mistakes and gets smarter if she wants to survive in this fast growing industry.

Top 5 Underrated Bollywood Actresses

When it comes to Bollywood, there are always beautiful talents that go underappreciated and unrecognized. But because of websites like ours, some of them could get the attention and the recognition they deserve. Here are some rather skillful actresses who are underrated for some biased reasons.

Related - Top 5 Overrated Bollywood Actresses [Part 1], Top 5 Overrated Bollywood Actresses [Part 2]

5. Sonakshi Sinha

Bagging the Filmfare for the best female debut for 'Dabangg', Sonakshi Sinha is one such actress who started gloriously. If it wasn't for the biased illustration of an ideal Bollywood actress and a few bad scripts, Sonakshi would've been one of the favourite artists in the industry today. She hasn't been very wise by making blunders like 'R Rajkumar', 'Son of Sardaar' and 'Action Jackson' but has never lacked skill in any of her performances. If you have watched 'Lootera', 'Noor' and 'Ittefaq' then you know that she is a versatile actress too. Given a few good opportunities, Sonakshi is the one that can definitely make it big in Bollywood. 

4. Aditi Rao Hydari

It's not every day that a professional Bharatnatyam dancer makes her way into the show business but being one of the most well-received supporting actresses, Aditi has come a long way since 'Sringaram'. The central reason that she's in this list is that of the under-appreciation she gets for bringing grace, innocence and elegance to every character she plays. Her noteworthy roles include 'Yeh Saali Zindagi', 'Kaatru Veliyidai', 'Bhoomi' and 'Padmaavat'. But maybe because of her disinterest in being a part of special songs or plotless commercial movies, she remains underrated. The balance that she maintains in both Bollywood and the South Indian Film industries are admirable and it's only a matter of time that she acquires the remarkable fame she deserves.

3. Konkana Sen Sharma

This name made me wonder how an actress, director and a writer with two national film awards and four Filmfare awards can stay incognito for so long but then again, Konkana is an actress who prefers privacy and no paparazzi means no popularity these days right? She is by far the most wondrous yet underrated actress of them all even though the awards and critics depict otherwise. Her nearly perfect portrayals in movies like 'Talwar', 'Lipstick Under My Burkha', 'Mr.and Mrs Iyer' and 'Dosar' are rudely ignored and she is still the boring heroine from 'Wake Up Sid!' to many people. Due to these reasons, Konkana Sen remains a beautiful pearl hidden in the unnoticed shell even today. 

2. Parineeti Chopra

Now, I know that a lot of people may not agree with me, but it's my personal opinion that Parineeti Chopra is quite underrated for her talent in Bollywood. People say that she plays the loud Punjabi foodie in her every movie but her acting in 'Hasee Toh Phasee', 'Meri Pyaari Bindu' and 'Kill Dil' stands against this speculation. She also won the Filmfare for the Best Female Debut for 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl' which points out that she's not another tactless star kid, much similar to Sonakshi Sinha. She has had comparatively a low number of bad movies in her list and its visible that she's growing considering her on hand weight loss and the start of her singing career. All I would want to say is that its evident that we can expect some laudable movies and versatility from Parineeti in the near future.

1. Kalki Koechlin

Being one of the most eligible artists we've ever known, Kalki Koechlin tops this list of Top 5 Underrated Bollywood Actresses for obvious reasons. She studied drama in Goldsmiths University of London, has won various awards for the plays that she has written and staged, is an activist who talks about woman empowerment, health and education. She also hosted a travel show and has a National film award which is just like a cherry on top. But clearly, most people fail to acknowledge her skill and I'll give you some probable reasons for that. 

Reason #1: She is French and its obvious that any actress with a foreign background will remain as a secondary consideration.

Reason #2: She is not a suitable choice for playing as an eye candy or a dancer and we all know where the actresses like Jacqueline Fernandez, Sunny Leone and Katrina Kaif get their share of attention and fame from, unlike Kalki. 

Reason #3: She has made YouTube videos, films and plays on some highly independent, in other words, hush-hush subjects like 'Margarita with a Straw', 'It's Your Fault (AIB)' and 'Man's World'.  Not everyone is okay with expressing their opinions on such touchy topics and therefore avoid watching anything about them. Truth is, Kalki is an amazing actress also being a very unpredictable one nevertheless worth looking out for.

Top 5 Malayalam Movies Since 2015

Malayalam Cinema a.k.a Mollywood is always known for it's experimental and unorthodox choice of films, and since it's inception in the late 1920's we've seen numerous popular and remarkable movies which are memorable till date. Since we're in the new era, I've selected the "Top 5 Malayalam Movies Since 2015", cause they're quite a few remarkable one's in the past five years and it is indeed super hard to select only five.

5. Anjali Menon's - "Koode" (2018) | Starring - Nazriya Nazim, Prithviraj Sukumaran and Parvathy.

Koode is a psychological drama film directed by the talented and artistic Anjali Menon. It is a remake of the 2014 Marathi movie Happy Journey. The story is about a beautiful relationship between a brother and his sister, who is a ghost. Prithviraj and Nazriya play the dysfunctional siblings and Parvathy plays his love interest. The actors have done justice to their roles and I should say that they are very much expressive that you start feeling every emotion that the character feels throughout the movie. The songs are melodious and I fell in love with Prithvi all over again. Anjali has been successful in making a somewhat ordinary film into an exceptional one. If you liked The Notebook and The Lake House there's a 99% chance that you will love this one too.

4. Bejoy Nambiar's - "Solo" (2017) | Starring - Dulquer Salmaan, Sai Dhanshika and Neha Sharma. 

I must say that this is the most interesting yet confusing film to write about. 2017 was the year of experimental movies, and Solo is an anthology art film narrating the story of four different people based on four different elements: Water, Air, Fire, and Earth. World of Shekhar (Water) is a poetic love story between a stammering Shekhar and a blind Radhika. The gentleness and innocent beauty of water are depicted through his character. World of Trilok is based on the air element. After a hit and run case of Trilok's then-pregnant wife Ayesha, he tracks down the guilty ones, Justin and his father in law and skillfully murders them making it look like natural deaths. The unforgiving, smooth yet stormy and unpredictable nature of air is described through the character of Trilok.

Whereas, the world of Shiva explains fire and the characteristics linked with it including rage, pain, and vengeance. But through Shiva, the writer also connects fire with fierce love, protective and chaotic natures of man. Finally, the world of Rudra explains the embracing, kind yet spirited nature of Mother Earth through an aggressive and passionate army officer Rudra. The movie has a very philosophical approach to the relationship between man and nature and only a brilliant director could've framed it so accurately. Dulquer is such a treat to watch and therefore Solo definitely gives something for all of us to wonder about. 

3. AK Sajan's - "Puthiya Niyamam" (2016) | Starring - Nayantara and Mammootty.

Moving on from a feel-good movie to the best crime drama of 2016, Puthiya Niyamam is by far my favorite Malayalam movie. It defines feminism and justice, but, I really want you to remember another such movie which apparently also defined feminism and girl power, Veere Di Wedding. You can make out the vast difference. Nayanthara is at her best and Mammootty is charming as always.

The plot is about Vasuki (Nayan) who takes revenge on her drug addict rapists with the help of a DCP, and I'd say, it's not every day that a mainstream film chooses drug-fueled crimes and substance consumption as the subject. But, I don't think this film resembles the Bollywood movie Pink. Instead, a new law is formed by Vasuki who takes justice instead of seeking it. From making the rapists' deaths appear like a suicide, to emotionally crushing them to commit suicide, Puthiya Niyamam displays the fury and agony of a victim who stands up to become a punisher.

2. Alphonse Puthren's - "Premam" (2015) | Starring - Nivin Pauly, Sai Pallavi, and Madonna Sebastian.

If Premam isn't the king of feel-good movies, then I don't know which one is. George who is in high school is infatuated with Mary a pre-university girl only to be friend zoned by her later. Being a kid, he cries for days. A few years later, George falls in love with a Tamilian lecturer Malar at college. But, a few days after he contemplates marriage, Malar meets with an accident and loses her memory of George. Dealing with the second major heartbreak, he steps into adulthood five years later where now, he owns a cafe with his childhood friend.

There he develops an affinity for Celine who is the same little girl who used to walk with Mary from the school every day. After dealing with her drug addict fiance, George and Celine get married. Malar attends the wedding with her husband and George gets closure. With Nivin Pauly's cute expressions and the supporting performances by Anupama Parameswaran, Madonna Sebastian and Sai Pallavi, Premam restore hope in the "happily ever after" theory.

1. Martin Prakkat's - "Charlie" (2015) | Starring - Dulquer Salmaan and Parvathy.

Directed by Martin Prakkat, Charlie is a romantic drama and is one of the most popular movies of 2015. The plot revolves around an artist called Tessa (Parvathy) who goes in search of the writer of an abandoned comic. Every character in the film has his/her unique style statement which makes it impressionable among the youth. Few other characters come along the way and build Charlie's character by narrating their personal experiences of him. Advancing to the performances, Aparna Gopinath and Soubin Shahir are my favorite supporting characters, but, Parvathi and Dulquer were extraordinary. Also, the film showcases the perks of being a traveler/ hippie, and every scene is given equal importance. Overall, Charlie is a great movie and deserves the top spot.

Top 5 Bollywood (Hindi) Movies Releasing in September 2018

5. Pradeep Sarkar's – 'Helicopter Eela'

Release Date - September 7, 2018 | Starring - Kajol

Reasons to be Excited About - The last time we've seen Kajol play a titular role in a film was for 'My Name is Khan' back in 2010. Helicopter Eela will display the Darling of Romance as an aspiring singer and a single mother, and judging by the trailers, so far, the movie seems to have a comedic tone and looks very much enjoyable.

4. J. P. Dutta’s – 'Paltan'

Release Date - September 7, 2018 | Starring - Ensemble Cast

Reasons to be Excited About - Based on the military clashes of Nathu La in 1967, Paltan showcases the intense war between India and China. Backed with a gigantic super cast, this is J.P. Dutta's (known for patriotic films like Border and LOC Kargil) comeback film as the director after twelve years. So, it's always interesting to see if he still has the blockbuster magic or not.

3. Shree Narayan Singh’s – 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu'

Release Date - September 21, 2018 | Starring - Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, and Yami Gautam

Reasons to be Excited About - So far, the vibe that I'm getting from the songs and the promos of this film is similar to Shahid's 2013 film 'Phata Poster Nikhla Hero' co-starring Ileana D'Cruz. But, Shree Narayan Singh is an acclaimed director, and is the man behind-the-camera for one of the biggest hits of 2017 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha'. Batti Gul Meter Chalu explores the electricity issues in rural India, and if it struck the chord when it comes to the social message part, I'm sure that it will be an incredible hit.

2. Anurag Kashyap’s – 'Manmarziyaan'

Release Date - September 14, 2018 | Starring -  Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu

Reasons to be Excited About - Manmarziyaan looks and feels very different from a typical Kashyap movie, which is IMO, a good thing if he's looking to diversify and explore different genres. Also, the cast includes Taapsee and Abhishek Bachchan, which is again, not normal. Nonetheless, Kashyap's films were always something to look for, and with his previous film in 2018, 'Mukkabaaz', not fairing well at the box office, all the pressure is now on Manmarziyaan and hopefully, it will perform well.

1. Sharat Katariya’s – 'Sui Dhaaga - Made in India'

Release Date - September 25, 2018 | Starring -  Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma

Reasons to be Excited About - With one of the most earnest looks in the promos, both Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma look very much down-to-earth in their characters, and I'm sure that this film will likely earn them multiple award nominations. Directed by Sharat Katariya ('Dum Laga Ke Haisha' fame), I'm also confident that this film will have a heartwarming story and will indeed be one of the decent hits of this year.

5. Ponram’s – 'Seemaraja'

Release Date - September 13, 2018 | Starring - Siva Karthikeyan, Samantha Akkineni, and Soori

Reasons to be Excited About - This is Ponram’s third film with Siva Karthikeyan as the lead, Soori as the comedian, D. Imman as the music director and this is his only third directorial film. While his debut and the second film were blockbusters, Ponram is trying to repeat the same formula of making a comedy-drama with Seemaraja also. Will he be successful one more time?

4. Ram’s – 'Peranbu'

Release Date - September 7, 2018 | Starring - Mammootty, Anjali, and Samuthirakanni

Reasons to be Excited About - Peranbu is a Tamil-Malayalam bilingual film with the Mollywood giant returning to Tamil Cinema after eight years. Peranbu had it's world premiere at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, and the Asian premiere at the Shanghai International Film Festival, China and received huge appreciations for its content, acting and filmmaking style of Ram. Yuvan Shankar Raja composed the film’s score and met with positive response from the critics and fans. The teaser of the film is very emotional, touching and sure to create a lasting effect on us.

3. Pawan Kumar’s – 'U-Turn'

Release Date: September 13, 2018 | Starring - Samantha Akkineni

Reasons to be Excited About - Pawan Kumar, known for his super-hit Kannada film “Lucia”, which was shortlisted for India’s submission for Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film is remaking his own blockbuster Kannada film “U-Turn” in Tamil and Telugu with Samantha. The trailer is intriguing and raises a lot of questions and mystery and I’m really thrilled about the film already.

2. Prem Kumar’s – '96'

Release Date: September 7, 2018 | Starring: Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha Krishnan

Reasons to be Excited About - The trailer and teaser of the movie have already gained millions of views on YouTube creating the right sensation, and the soul-stirring songs are ruling the playlist. Trisha and Vijay Sethupathi are very expressive and sure to create an impact with their acting skills. I’m also excited that yesteryear veteran actor Janakaraj is making a comeback to the silver screen after a very long gap.

1. Mani Ratnam’s – 'Chekka Chivantha Vaanam'

Release Date - September 28th | Starring - Ensemble Cast

Reasons to be Excited About - Mani Ratnam is a genius who could bring together talented star casts, bring the best out of them and makes sure no one overshadows the other.  The film has Vijay Sethupathi, Silambarasan (STR), Arvind Sami, Arun Vijay, Prakash Raj, Jyothika, Aishwarya Rajesh, Aditi Rao Hydari, Thiyagarajan, Jayasudha and a lot of other actors playing vital roles. The trailer of the films had the vibe of The Godfather and the fans (including myself) are very much excited and waiting for the movie’s release. Also, the film has Mani’s usual associates, A.R.Rahman, Santhosh Sivan, and Sreekar Prasad handling music, cinematography, and editing respectively. Can we ask for more?

Top 5: Mission Impossible: Fallout vs Infinity War & Deadpool 2

Top 5 Reasons Why Mission Impossible: Fallout is the Best Movie of the Summer and Avengers: Infinity War or Deadpool 2 Were Not Even Close!

Prelude: Just to clarify, this is just my opinion piece and I don't want to offend anyone with my thoughts. If you like Avengers: Infinity War or even Deadpool 2, it's fine, nothing wrong with that. It's just the magic of cinema. Also, I'm well aware that they're many indie films like Hereditary or Won't You Be My Neighbor? which are certainly much better than these summer blockbusters, and I only want to concentrate on Popular Films. So, I hope everyone is on the same page and with that being said, let's get started!

Reason #1: The Breathtaking Stunts

Advertised and been told as the largest practical action film ever shot, I was astounded to see the amount of hard work, courage and dedication Tom Cruise and the entire crew had put through to entertain the audience and make the big-screen experience memorable. Overwhelmed with CGI, I bet you can't point out any impressive action scene from both Infinity War and Deadpool 2 of the top of your mind. In Fallout, to name a few, the HALO jump, the entire Helicopter scene, felt incredibly special to watch cause it is, in fact, Cruise (not Josh Brolin in a suit) doing most of these deadly stunts without the help from a stunt-double.

Reason #2: Mr Tom Cruise

The second reason why this franchise feels very special is that of The Man, The Myth, The Legend, Tom Cruise, who is crazy enough to up the ante every time we see him in these movies. There is a real reason why he's called the Greatest Action Movie Star of our generation and it's because he trains and skillfully performs these awe-inspiring stunt sequences which are theatric, spectacular and at the same time concerning to watch. The guy is 56 years old and still wants to entertain his audience and make their penny's worth, which is applaudable. I even heard him mention in an interview, that he and his team gave a serious thought to do an action sequence in space. Geeeez! How far can you go?

Reason #3: An Intriguing Storyline

Now, I'll not even bring Deadpool 2 into this conversation. What's the plot of Infinity War again? Ohh! Thanos snaps his fingers and half of the population vanishes including our favourite Avengers? So, this was his unpopular option to bring law and order to the world? Sounds very familiar! Because that's the same thing every evil-minded supervillain want to accomplish. Destroy half of the society and take control over the world. Even Fallout explores a similar storyline.

But, continuing as the sixth film in the franchise, Fallout still manages to keep the viewer interesting by taking an ordinary storyline and making it intriguing to watch by adding few twists and turns which didn't feel forced.

Reason #4: The Not-So-Cheesy Jokes

Let me start by saying this, few of the previous MCU films were funny, the first Deadpool movie was a riot. However, the comedic scenes in Deadpool 2 stopped being funny after a while and same goes to Infinity War. They got repetitive, oversaturated and the whole thing became unfunny. I remember Rocket Raccoon cracking a stupid silly joke in the midst of serious fight which spoiled the entire scene and that kept happening in both the films.

On the other side, Fallout, for the most part, deals with a serious tone, but the comedic sequences were short, funny and are not overdone, unlike the previous two mentioned films.

Reason #5: A Cinematic Experience

Now, I agree, watching the Avengers fight against the CGI giant Thanos and Deadpool dodge bullets from Cable is pretty cool on the big screen. But, there's something really special watching Cruise doing these mesmerizing stunts. It's a heart-stopping experience, and it gave me goosebumps even when watching it for the second time. There is a reason why I go to the movies every week and Fallout enthralled me by making it an absolute cinematic experience which I never really came across in recent times.

Top 5 Patriotic Movies (Multilingual)

August 15, 2018, will mark as the 72nd Independence Day of our Great Nation of India and the entire team of Just for Movie Freaks planned something special for you guys as we co-ordinated and addressed our thoughts on the Top 5 Patriotic Movies. Now, this is by no means the definitive Top 5 list as we're all well aware that they're many great films like Rang De Basanti, Lagaan, LOC Kargil and much more. We just chose to cover movies across all major languages and we can only select five. Hope you understand!

5.  Mahesh Narayanan's - "Take Off" (2017) | Starring - Parvathy

Take Off is a 2017 Indian Drama/ Thriller that narrates the ordeal of 49 nurses from Kerala who were kept hostage by the members of the Iraqi insurgency. The story is similar to Tiger Zinda Hai and the lead character Sameera is almost identical to Poorna from the Hindi version of the movie. Bits of the Red Cross and the Red Crescent movement is shown during the film. The cinematography is quite acceptable but the music is very appealing. Parvathy, Fahadh, and Kunchacki Boban set a new level of excellence through their performances which explains the innumerable awards it won.  As the movie ends, we come to know that the documents revealing the secret dealt between the Indian Military and the ISIS are destroyed. Overall, Take Off gives the more traumatic, realistic and detailed version of the incident, unlike Tiger Zinda Hai and from the goosebumps I got during the climax scene, I would say that this is the most patriotic movie after Chak De! India and Swades.

4.  Krishna Vamsi's - "Khadgam" (2002) | Starring - Ravi Teja, Meka Srikanth and Prakash Raj.

Quoted as one of the "Best Patriotic Movies of Tollywood", The film Khadgam deals with a fictional storyline exploring a wide range of significant topics including the affable relationships between Hindus and Muslims and arbitrates itself with everyone coming together to stop a terrorist attack. However, the powerful dialogues, splendid direction by Krishna Vamsi, exceptional performances by the three main leads, and the mellifluous music by Devi Sri Prasad makes Khadgam a worthy and a superlative watch that you should not miss on any given day.

3. Shimit Amin's - "Chak De! India" (2007) | Starring - Shah Rukh Khan

Released on August 10, 2007, one month before the Indian Cricket Team won the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup (where the movie's title song was played over and over again during the final). Chak De! India holds a special place in all our hearts for numerous reasons. The remarkable performances from the complete cast, the emotional storyline, delightful music and most importantly, the climax scene made us Indians very proud as Chak De! India is and will always be one of the best Patriotic movies of all time.

2. Priyadarshan's - "Kaalapani" (1996) | Starring - Mohanlal, Tabu and Prabhu.

Kaalapani is an epic historical drama, directed by the ace filmmaker Priyadharshan, the movie shows the pain and suffering of Indian Freedom fighters, who are sent to prison in the Andaman Islands during the British rule. The prison is nothing but hell, where the prisoners are tortured, made to bleed and endure extreme misery for the nation. Priyadharshan’s authentic deception of the British rule and soul-stirring acting of Mohanlal leaves the audience teary-eyed.

1. S Shankar's - "Indian" (1996) | Starring - Kamal Haasan, Manisha Koirala and Urmila Matondkar.

One of the finest movies of Shankar which ostentate a 70-year-old freedom fighter's love and respect for the nation, annoyance against bribery, and anguish that the freedom brought by shedding blood is in the hands of corrupt officials. His intense passion for the wellbeing of the country makes him go to an extent of killing his own son, whose dishonesties is the reason behind the death of innocent school children. Backed by some phenomenal acting performances by Kamal Haasan, where his role as Senapathy became very popular as Indian Thatha, razor-sharp dialogues by Sujatha and ingenious screenplay and direction by Shankar, Indian is a perfect movie which etches patriotism in our heart.

TOP 5 REASONS TO WATCH TAGARU (KANNADA)

Talking about the first Kannada movie to be released in Kenya and Japan, Tagaru is an action thriller which sheds light on the underworld's feud with the police.

Reason #1: The Not-So-Typical Hero

Shiva Rajkumar, also known as the Tom Cruise of Sandalwood is an energetic police officer who is vengeful and just unlike the kind and honorable types. His character defies the stereotype of a kind and peace-loving hero and his dialogues are whistle worthy.

Reason #2: The Insane Villain 

If there is a villain who resembles the Joker from 'The Dark Knight' then it's probably Dolly. It's rare that the villain has a more sound role than the hero but Dhananjay's hard work is reflected highly in his performance. This film also showcases one of the rare instances when the bad guy becomes one for the sake of it and not because of a tragic past or a dead father's debt. It's fun to watch Dolly that way.

Reason #3: The Breezy Plot 

The story is not very complex or twisted because its focus is on the action but nevertheless it gives a glimpse of the bitter reality. Duniya Soori has been very careful in the screenplay and direction. Various unexpected murders happen throughout the movie which is brutal but also necessary to build the abomination between the hero and the villain. Their hate for each other is metaphorically described as a local billy goat duel and hence the title Tagaru.

Reason #4: The Cinematography

Mahendra Simha being one of the most noted Sandalwood cinematographers proves yet again why he's worth it. From capturing the deepest emotions of the actors with the ideal lighting to making the fight scenes as realistic as possible, he is a magician. Every scene is precise and highly necessary and will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat. 

Reason #5: The Enchanting Music

When it comes to Jayanth Kaikini, there is no doubt that one of his songs will become a trending anthem among the youth. But blend it with Charan Raj's excellent composing and Hindustani background scores, the songs become ecstatic. The songs are so captivating that it will steal you away. Overall, the movie is promising and unique which according to me are enough reasons to watch it.

TOP 5 REASONS WHY SACRED GAMES IS EXTREMELY POPULAR!

It was a rainy Thursday night here in the Capital City of India and as I'm browsing through Quora, I came across a question asking "Why has the Netflix show Sacred Games suddenly become so popular? What is so good about it?" And after I completed answering the question, I thought maybe I can brighten the answer a bit and turn into a Top 5 Editorial for all you guys.

If you already had a look at my Review for Sacred Games, you'll very well know that I enjoyed the series incredibly and unsurprisingly it was very well received by the audience and the critics all across India and is also the hot topic all across the interwebs. So, let me explain in a five-point format about how a movie or a TV series (like Sacred Games) will become popular before the release and will maintain it’s popularity even after it’s release.

Reason #1: The Cast | (Before the Release)

Before the release or even before the début of any promotional material, the initial reason why people got excited about Sacred Games is primarily that of popular Movie Actors like Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Radhika Apte acting in a television series. Don't get me wrong, shows like Inside Edge and Breathe (Amazon Prime) had a star-studded cast, but, Sacred Games roped in few of the biggest names in Bollywood and immediately had everyone’s curiosity.

Reason #2: The Directors | (Before the Release)

Directors Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane are popular for their independent content and were highly acclaimed for their work in the past which includes Gangs of Wasseypur, Udaan, and Trapped. Therefore, people certainly had their hopes high expecting something unique, authentic and unorthodox from these filmmakers.

Reason #3: Trailers, Promos, Marketing & Netflix | (Before the Release)

Then the trailers got released and people started spreading love and excitement all over the internet and simultaneously Netflix promoted the series in a very unique and a profound way through their social media and through billboards in urban cities. Additionally, it’s Netflix’s debut in the Indian Television Market, hence fans were automatically pumped.

Reason #4: Story, Screenplay, Direction Characters, and Performances | (After the Release)

Now, after it’s debut on July 6, 2018, the primary reason it sustained its popularity is that of the authentic and intriguing storyline, incredibly written screenplay, masterful direction, compelling characters and remarkable performances from the cast. The whole series felt like a part one of an eight-hour long movie and people started realizing that this series will only elevate the standards of our television industry which are currently drowning in a pathetic state filled with woeful family drama and absurd reality shows.

Reason #5: The Cliffhanger | (The Aftermath)

After everyone completed the series, they’re rammed with questions about the ending or certain characters and their thoughts. So, it immediately sparked a conversation on blogs like Quora and Twitter where people didn’t stop discussing, praising or complaining about the series and its ideals. Here you go, another reason about why it’s popular.

Nevertheless, Sacred Games is a prime example of how creative work should be spread, marketed and delivered to the public eye. It’s popular because of all the reasons I pointed out and is an exceptional series that no one should ever miss.

TOP 5 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT RACE 3

1. Supercars Blown Up!

The stunts of Race 3 were choreographed by Hollywood action director Tom Struthers and were shot in Abu Dhabi. At the trailer launch event, Salman Khan had said that they picked up 15-16 brand new cars while shooting in Abu Dhabi thinking they would get them back, but the action director ensured they don’t get even one car back. “The cars were blown up in 200 parts, which made it impossible to bring the cars back,” he added.

2. 5 Days! Just 5 Days!

Can you believe that the climax of Race 3 was shot in just 5 days? As per a report from the film's team, the climax was shot with three units simultaneously. A set of actors were continuously shooting on the three units and wrapped the schedule in just five days that could have taken ten days to shoot.

Director Remo D’Souza stated, “The climax scene is an elaborate action sequence that was to be shot with the entire cast. Salman ensured that the grueling schedule that would otherwise take 10 days to shoot, was completed in just 5 days. We had three separate units that were shooting simultaneously on set. The live explosions also had the military’s presence for security concern. The entire sequence was an event in itself.”

3. Sidharth Keeps Making Bad Choices?

Sidharth Malhotra was approached and opted out of the film, as he was to be cast opposite Daisy Shah, who is the supporting actress in the film. Malhotra has always been paired opposite the leading ladies, so he decided to opt out. Also, Aditya Roy Kapoor was first approached for the second lead after Siddarth Malhotra. But producer Ramesh Taurani didn't agree to his price.

4. The Real Anil

Anil Kapoor who plays the role of a business tycoon Shamsher in the film will be introduced through an action scene which will reportedly see no body double because Anil Kapoor has decided to do the stunts himself, reported mid-day. Anil Kapoor's entry scene will reportedly involve an adrenaline-pumping car chase sequence and rounds of a gunshot.

5. Jacky vs Daisy - The Cat Fight?

Talking about her experience of doing action scenes, Jacqueline says, “ I was part of very big action centric films (Dishoom) in the past but this is the first time I have gone all out and done action with Race 3. Daisy (Shah) and I have a massive cat fight in the film and it’s actually one of the hardest action sequences I have ever done in my life. In the movie, Daisy actually hits me and while shooting she has kicked me hard many times.”

TOP 5 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT AVENGERS INFINITY WAR

1. The Infinity Stones: Where Are They Now?

As of the release of Thor: Ragnarok (2017), five of the six Infinity Stones have surfaced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Space Stone (also known as the Tesseract) was first revealed in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), and now resides with Loki. The Mind Stone, which was housed in Loki's staff until Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), and now is in the possession of Vision. The Power Stone, first seen in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), is under control of the Nova Corps. The Reality Stone (also known as the Aether) was first seen in Thor: The Dark World (2013), and was placed in the care of the Collector. With the destruction of the Collector's Vault in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), its whereabouts are unclear. The fifth and final known stone, the Time Stone (also known as the Eye of Agamotto), was revealed in Doctor Strange (2016) and is under his protection in Kamar-Taj. The whereabouts of the sixth stone, the Soul Stone, is unknown and may appear in this movie.

2. A Little Context Before You Watch the Movie 

It has been confirmed by the Russo brothers that what happened in Captain America: Civil War (2016) will still continue in this movie where the teams will still be divided. The film will conclude the Thanos and the Infinity Stones story arc, and the plot will follow the Avengers joining forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to stop Thanos from destroying the universe with the six Infinity Stones.

3. The Dope New Shield: Made in Wakanda

Steve Rogers wields a new shield in this film, made from Wakandan Vibranium, that splits apart into two arm guards. This is based on two different shields Rogers wielded in the comics: one shield was provided by the Black Panther, and the other split apart into two guards. The tech reflects his surroundings, apparently made of vibranium — the same rare naturally occurring meteoric ore that Black Panther’s suit is made of — which derives from the African nation. And according to the recent reveal that Shuri is the tech genius behind her brother’s superhero gadgetry, it’s pretty safe to say that Cap’s new gauntlet shield was invented by the Princess of Wakanda herself.

4. Hey Thor! How About a New Hammer!?

Having lost his hammer Mjolnir in Thor: Ragnarok (2017), Thor constructs a new hammer in this film, known as Stormbreaker. Stormbreaker is named for the Asgardian hammer given to Thor's comrade Beta Ray Bill. It is a war hammer-ax, based on the Marvel Ultimate Mjolnir.

5. The White Wolf < The Winter Soldier

Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Bucky Barnes will go by the code name 'White Wolf' in Avengers: Infinity War, as he was referred to by the children of Wakanda in the after credit scene in Black Panther (2018). White Wolf in the comics was T'Challa's adopted brother Hunter who was the leader of Wakanda's secret police: The Hatut Zeraze.

TOP 5 BOLLYWOOD MOVIES RELEASING THIS SUMMER

5. Meghna Gulzar's - 'Raazi'

Release Date - May 11 | Starring - Vicky Kaushal and Alia Bhatt

Making a remarkable mark with her début film Talvar, Meghna Gulzar is preparing for the release of her upcoming film Raazi. Starring Vicky Kaushal (Raman Raghav 2.0 fame) and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles, the film is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s novel Calling Sehmat, about a Kashmiri spy married to a Pakistani man during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. The film will be a period-thriller and Meghna's is pretty good at directing edgy subjects and the addition of Kaushal and Alia seems to be exciting. Let's hope for the best!

4. Abhishek Sharma's - 'Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran'

Release Date - TBA | Starring - John Abraham and Diana Penty

Directed by Abhishek Sharma (The Shaukeens fame), the film is based on the nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by the Indian Army at Pokhran in 1998 and will feature John Abraham and Diana Penty as Army Officials. Previously starring in Shoojit Sircar's sleeper-hit film Madras Cafe, John Abraham is no stranger when it comes to real life and army based films and him starring in another film which looks very similar to Madras Cafe is exciting. Also, Abhishek Sharma proved his mettle in the comedic genre and it should be interesting to watch how he handles action and drama. Altogether, sooner than later, this film will get a definite release date and hopefully, it will impress and do well.

3. Shoojit Sircar's - 'October'

Release Date - April 13 | Starring - Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu

Talking about Shoojit Sircar, his upcoming film October is creating a positive buzz all around the internet soon after the trailer dropped. Touted as a romantic-drama, this film looks unorthodox and unlike anything Sircar had done before. Varun Dhawan is another positive for the film cause I believe he's a well-rounded actor and dramatic roles suit him very well as we've seen him excel in Badlapur. Nevertheless, this film has all the potential to be great and exceptional, but, you never know!

2. Rajkumar Hirani's - 'Sanju'

Release Date - June 29 | Starring - Ranbir Kapoor

Directed by the critically acclaimed director Rajkumar Hirani, Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role is a biopic on the life of the legendary actor, Sanjay Dutt who is an interesting personality in the film industry. Also starring Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor as the supporting cast, this film should be very compelling to watch, not only because of Hirani directing but also because of the controversial life of Sanju Baba who spent his time in jail a few years back.

1. Remo D'Souza's - 'Race 3'

Release Date - June 15 | Starring - Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez

Coming off the blockbuster success of the previous two Race films, Race 3 is easily the most anticipated of the Summer. Starring Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Anil Kapoor in the lead roles, this film should be a high-octane ride with amazing action sequences and breathtaking car stunts like we've never seen before. My only concern is with Remo D' Souza directing the film, who has an unimpressive track record as a storyteller.
