Pathaan: Movie Review

Pathaan Is A High-Octane Set Piece Devoid Of Gravity And Logic

Shah Rukh Khan made an impressive comeback with Pathaan, a patriotic spy thriller but different from what is seen in recent years. Released in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu, the movie captured the attention of the audience even before its release. And this movie was important for SRK for many reasons.

  • It has been 4 years since SRK played a lead actor in a movie since Zero (2018)
  • SRK’s last venture Zero was one of the biggest box-office failures in his career

So, SRK needed a blockbuster to make a comeback and he chose Pathaan to high the silver screen after a lull of four years. Also, his fans were excited to see him making a comeback.


The government of India revokes Article 370 and the special status of Jammu and Kashmir but it doesn’t go down well with the Pakistani army general who decides to exact vengeance against India. He hires Jim (John Abraham) leader of a private terrorist organization “Outfit X” to attack India. In India, Pathaan (SRK), a former RAW agent, and his senior officer Nandini (Dimple Kapadia) open a unit dubbed, “Joint Operation and Covert Research” (JOCR). Jim also happened to be an ex-Raw agent turned rouge after his wife and unborn child were killed by Somalian terrorists. He plans to launch a virus attack and saber missiles on India.


  • Salman Khan’s cameo in the movie is like a double dose of high-octane action for the audiences
  • Pathaan carries the impact of the likes of Mission Impossible and Marvel movies
  • Director Siddarth Anand left no stone unturned in choosing action and special effects in the movie
  • The action scenes of the mid-air fight in helicopters and fight in a train moving over a hill are visually very impressive
  • Stylist VFX, cinematography, action sequence, and music are the biggest strengths of the movie


  • The story moves at a back-neck speed that makes it difficult for the viewers to enjoy moments
  • The action sequences are marvelous

Rocketry: The Nambi Effect

R. Madhavan Makes A Good Directorial Debut But With A Half-Baked Movie

Rocketry is a directorial debut of R. Madhavan. Also, Madhavan is the writer and co-producer of the movie. It is a biographical drama based on the life of Nambi Narayana, a former space scientist at the Indian Space Research Organization. He was arrested in the ISRO espionage case and later exonerated.


Nambi Narayanan is an eminent scientist of ISRO but was arrested on false charges of espionage. Later he was exonerated of all the charges but only after a long battle with the system and society. Nambi walks through his life and narrates everything the good and poor side of his life – his scholarship from Princeton University, declining a lucrative job offer from NASA, and sealing an unbelievable deal with the CEO of Rolls Royce. He even runs like James Bond on snow to escape from the clutches of foreign agents chasing him to get crucial parts of a rocket. He is arrested for espionage and his family suffers mental and social trauma. But he comes clean from the charges. The movie is made in Hindi, Tamil, and English



• Madhavan honestly covers every aspect of Namib’s life, especially his feats and challenges
• Madhavan’s makeup to dialogue delivery and expression makes him the real Nambi
• Simran portrays Meena Nambi with grace and absolute conviction
• Sam Mohan as Unni stands out among the supporting actors
• In the Hindi version, Shah Rukh Khan looks impressive as a news anchor


• The movie feels like an extended science class with difficult science words included in the script
• Repetitive words like ‘Nambi is a genius’ make it a propaganda movie
• It requires a sharper edit and a more sophisticated screenplay

Jugjugg Jeeyo Movie Review

Jugjugg Jeeyo Is A Delightful Movie Revolving Around A Family Struggling To Save Their Marriages

Jugjugg Jeeyo is a multi-starrer family drama by Raj Mehta. The movie centers on a Punjabi Saini family of Patiala struggling to keep its flock together. Both the senior and junior Saini couples are on the verge of divorcing but they agreed to come together for the last time for the wedding of the daughter of the Saini family.


• The movie maintains a pace that keeps viewers engaged
• Scenes between Kiara and Neetu are emotionally moving
• Neetu brings calm to every scene instead of a loud Punjabi mom
• Kiara also delivers a restrained performance of a self-made, independent, and career-oriented woman
• Anil Kapoor as a modern-day father looks cool


• The story is a bit too long and it lacks freshness
• Punjabi fun is similar to other family movies
• Some scenes look inspired by Ekta Kapoor serials
• The loud background music and dialogue often cross the permissible decibel limits


Kuku Saini (Varun Dhawan) and Naina Sharma (Kiara Advani) are childhood lovers but they don’t make a good couple as they decide to part ways soon after their marriage. Post-marriage they shift to Toronto where they decide to take divorce but after the wedding of Kuku’s younger sister, Ginny (Prajakta Koli). Back home dad Bheem (Anil Kapoor) and mom Geeta (Neetu Singh) are also fed up with their long-term marriage and want to divorce after Ginny’s wedding.

Dad Bheem is a talkative person who doesn’t think before talking. He reveals everything even about his extra-marital affair to Kuku. But mom Geeta maintains the calm. Also, she has good chemistry with her daughter-in-law. In a scene, Ginny is seen dancing with her girl tribe during her pre-wedding bash when she accidentally kisses her ex-boyfriend who she still loves. In another scene, Neetu and Kiara are in a kirtan where a Guru Ma performs a special ritual so Kiara gets pregnant.
