About R-view

R-view contains some real short reviews of some of the movies I've liked over the years. Most of them are 140 character posts as they used to be my tweets (@mrzoozoo) This blog was created for (the purpose of showing off my INSANE movie review skills :p) some class assignment purposes. So don't frown if you don't find enough text in there to make you like or watch the movie. Hey you can always Google! :)

R-view 140: Imsai Arasan 23m Pulikesi

Comedy, satire, call it whatever u want. It's pure brilliance. Real old story in a one of a kind period bottle. Vadivelu is a total star! And the Tamil tongue-twister period slang is amazing. Smiles all the way, this one.

R-view 140: Dabangg

Lovely cop, south-style action, funny/rude-one liners, satirical in parts. Fun ride. Nice plot, settings. Salman**** Sonakshi***** A bit slow here and there and has the warning written all over: NOT FOR THE SERIOUS FILM FOLK! Robin-hood Pandey is Dabangg!

R-view 140: Knight And Day

Another come-back vehicle for the once charming action hero. Fails. Worked for me though, old school slick action. Fun!

R-view 140: Cocktail

One of the best adaptations in recent times. Saw people give a standing ovation. Havnt seen one of those since TZP! Jayasoorya doesn't overplay and unarguably Anoop Menon's best of roles. Butterfly On A Wheel-ish. Thriller. Decent.

R-view 140: Anwar

Looohoong and boring in parts. Slick fights, cud hav been trimmed. Evry dialogue is a punch dialogue! Some of them, actually quotable. PrakashRaj***** Traitor-ish. Not destroying the movie's reputation, I used to be a fan of Amal Neerad stylishness. This is like an overdose. RGV wud be proud of his protege! Super stylish cam work. Looks like an sfx show reel in parts. Painfully slow.

R-view 140: Boss (E) Bhaskaran

Funny masala movie with all the right elements. Reminded of Kacheri Arambam in parts. Santhanam is da MAN! Nanbendaaaa! Arya***

R-view 140: My Wife is a Gangster 2

Haven't seen the first installation. But thoroughly enjoyed this one. Korean style comedy, action, slick editing etc.

R-view 140: From Paris with Love

Lotta ass-kicking action. Cliched plot and twist and all. Travolta was fun, but predictable. Frm the director of Taken and District B13???

R-view 140: Lafangey Parindey

Deepika topped the act but miscast for sure, Neil too. Nice music. Story familiar (Thullatha manavum..). Worth a watch.
