Blood Money review

Blood Money’ meaning: Money earned from people’s blood!!! Vishesh Films new movie looked a little promising in the promos but it lacks perfection. It’s a simple concept common in Vishesh Films movies, one middle class guy aspiring to make it big, rather very big and then realizing that he is not on an honest path! This might remind you of movie ‘Jannat’.

Summary: Kunal (Kunal Khemu) an ambitious MBA from a lower middle class Mumbai background comes with his wife Arzoo (Amrita Puri) to join a company Zaveri Diamonds in Cape Town. Initially everything seems fabulous to Kunal from his work to the company facilities and offerings and it looks equally difficult to Arzoo seeing her husband very busy that he even fails to remember her birthday. Things turn bitter for Kunal when he realizes that its people’s blood involved i.e. the terrorism, black money, honest killings and thus the money he is making is a blood money! So what is next? Does Kunal goes deep in and make it huge at the stake of his personal life with Arzoo or does he fights back like a larger than life actor in a usual masala movie, comes out honest and makes you feel ‘ehh!! Is it possible?’

Review: It’s a first one hour that scores high and leaves you a little excited but later things turn a lot simple and the twists do not seem to lure you at all. The debutant director Vishal Mahadkar has done well at some sequences capturing the beautiful Cape Town locations. One will probably like Kunal’s meeting with some well known terrorist, a sequence quite brilliantly shot Angola, Africa. Kunal Khemu is a very talented actor and a better script and clean direction can make it visible. He has done well and it looks he can carry a movie on his shoulders single handedly. Do you remember his performance in the movie ‘Superstar’? The actress Arzoo looks beautiful and does her job very well. Manish Chowdhary once again delivers an exceptional performance as Kunal’s boss and villain after ‘Rocket Singh’. The most disappointing aspect of the movie is its dialogues, so poor that you can laugh your hearts out on some serious dialogue delivery.

Just like all other Mahesh Bhatt movies this movie has got a brilliant music and very melodious numbers. ‘Chaahat’, ‘Arzoo’ and ‘Jo tere sang’ being the ones you will have on your lips all these days.

An idea that was absolutely awesome, but attempt that was not perfect but still a DVD watch to banta hai yaar. I will give 2/5. One can see it to pass some time, to have a watch at the exotic locations of Cape Town, listen to some good music and to watch one more masala bollywood movie.


Paan Singh Tomar

‘Bihad mein baaghi hote hain… Dacait milte hain Parliament mein’ this is perhaps the best dialogue from Paan Singh Tomar, a terrific entertainer, a movie exactly contrary with the usual masala bollywood movies. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia gives the character’s journey in a razor-sharp way from the time he joins the armed forces, later becoming an athelete, feeling betrayed in his village and finally becoming a dacoit. After Shagird and Saheb Biwi aur Gangster it’s a one more perfectly executed movie Dhulia has made.

It is an eye opener biopic about the sportsmen who once made their nation proud with their achievements but were later miffed when they needed their country the most. In our country few atheletes have died penniless and some were also asked to sell their medal later to earn the living! Pan Singh Tomar is a movie that enlightens the life and journey of one such small town lad turning a very famous dacoit.

Irfan Khan a great actor as he is has done enough home work before stepping into the character. He has very well done a 20 year old young aspiring army man, to a 50 year old dacoit. All the sequences looks fantastic with him like the 3000 meter running and long jumps to those of kidnapping men of his own village for the money. He has made his looks too good to match at every stage of the film. Mahie Gill once again gives a good performance and the romantic scenes between her and Irfan are humorous and put a pleasant smile on your face.

The sharp cinematography and better background score makes things exiting. With the serious issue taken as the main theme of this movie, it still has a rib tickling comic timings. This proves that serious movie can be equally entertaining, catchy and memorable. Sadly the song kero mama is not shown in the movie. watch it in the trailer above.

If you really want to see some good movie other than the usual Agneepath or some other masala movie go for this one. While leaving the theatre you will feel it was worth and totally paisa vasool. It is delightful and 3.5/5 from me.
