Gils verdict – Decent family entertainer for one time watch.
Uru – A typical, Hollywood thriller/psycho movie, which literally borrows every single scene from some or other movies. These kind of stories have been churned so many number of times that, people actually expect the twists and surprises and unless they are really original it immediately gets a seen-there-nothing-new feeling. The story is that of an aspiring novelist, who has seen better times and whose star is on the decline, decides to go to a hilly place to find inspiration for his new novel. He undergoes a “The Shining” moment ala the Stephen king novel. Even from the trailer, it was evident the list of movies from which the scenes were lifted/inspired. Poor Heroine. She had been made to run, wail, fight and cry for good 40 minutes in the second half and credit to her, she manages the entire duration with hardly a few lines of dialogue with the killer chasing her. The final “twist” was hardly a surprise and it was pretty much expected and the ending barely raises any thrill. Couldn’t blame the director or the screenplay writer for these kind of movies are dime a dozen in HBO and STAR movies and there is a very strong sense of Déjà vu while watching the movie.
Gils verdict – hardly original and rarely thrilling for a thriller movie.
Final movie in the list is the much rubbished, literally spit upon and ravished in reviews movie of the week – AAA. If at all there is anything praiseworthy about the entire movie, it’s the talent of the director into convincing the producer and the hero into signing a two part deal for this movie!! Believe me, if at all anyone can sell ice to eskimos, THIS IS THE GUY.
Gils verdict – avvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv.
