Few films encourage you to free your mind and unleash your imagination. Say what you will about the Amitabh Bachchan-Ritesh Deshmukh starrer Aladin, but you cannot complain that you've seen this kind of Hindi film before.Ghosh uses superlative special effects to bring this fable to life, even if the narrative itself is occasionally choppy, leaving you befuddled over important plot-points.'m going with three out of five for director Sujoy Ghosh's Aladin; it's a worthy watch, especially for the kids. It's also a rare reminder that you can have good, clean fun at the movies. Beneath all the special effects however, it's a noble story about standing up for what's right.

Sujoy Ghosh's ALADIN promises the moon, but what you get is a mere flicker. This fantasy had the trappings to transport you to fantasyland, but… Seriously, Sujoy could've run his imagination wild and come up with a film that would've made the child in you jump, scream and clap with glee. But 15/20 minutes into the film and you realize that ALADIN is merely a visual spectacle. A film that lacks soul! On the whole, ALADIN is a terrible waste of a terrific opportunity. Hugely disappointing!

But truly, we fail to get the point because the film doesn't work at any level. Neither do the genie (Amitabh Bachchan) and the Ring Master (Sanjay Dutt) create magic with their over the top acts, nor does the Riteish-Jacqueline romance strike a chord. In fact, for the two veterans, Amitabh and Sanjay Dutt, this might be one their most bizarre performances. To sum up with the refrain (Aladin, Aladin, kahan hai tera jinn) of the film: Aladin, Aladin, kahan hai tera sheen? Truly, a big let down from director Sujoy Ghosh who lost both his jhankar and his beats after ‘Home Delivery’ and ‘Aladin’, his films following a scintillating debut with ‘Jhankar Beats’.

If only Sujoy Ghosh's contemporary take of the popular Arabian fantasy was this uncomplicated. Instead a flawed narrative lays out a lot of plots but doesn't present any subtext to convince or justify the same.A subject like this calls in for spectacular imagery laced with wonder and intrigue. And so one expects the battle between two ancient genies in the climax to be much more than standard dishoom-dishoom.What Ghosh dishes out in its place is some half-hearted hocus-pocus, a clumsy mix of old world lore with contemporary indifference, sloppy trips to the flashback and awkward bursts of forced sentimentality.Make a wish, Genius insists. Too late for that, isn't it?

what could have shaped up as a fantastic fantasy ride from hereon, merely ends up being a formula-driven love story. Ideally the viewer expects Aladin to run his flight of fancy and make magnanimous wishes from the Genie to add a new flamboyant flavour to the revisited fairy tale. Unfortunately all of Aladin’s wishes are expended only in winning his ladylove Jasmine.But soon enough the bound script (that’s Sujoy’s banner name) writing by Sujoy Ghosh, Ritesh Shah and Suresh Nair opens up to an assortment of Bollywood clich├ęs. The basic romance plot reminds of Rakesh Roshan’s Koi Mil Gaya with Riteish playing the underdog and Genie replacing Jadoo who helps him woo the girl. Sadly Sahil Khan can’t even match Rajat Bedi in being the bad bully guy

Sujoy Ghosh certainly had honest intentions. But couldn’t come up with a coherent plot. When the breezy love story stands out in a fantasy flick, you know something is amiss.Ghosh's setting is neither magical enough for a fantasy nor identifiable enough to be real. It’s too confusing for kids and adults alike. Except for a few laugh early on and Bachchan’s stand out act, Aladin is another addition to Bollywood’s failed attempts at fantasy.

London Dreams Movie Review

List of London Dreams Movie Reviews

Showing 8 Reviews

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
London Dreams, directed by Vipul Shah, is a frustratingly foolish film about foolish people.It's the kind of film whose central conflict could be instantly resolved if the characters concerned simply sat down and had a chat.For its dim-witted writing and sloppy direction, London Dreams is ultimately a tiresome watch. I'm going with two out of five and at best an average rating for director Vipul Shah's London Dreams.If you must, watch it for Salman Khan who's turned buffoonery into a bonafide acting style. It's the only thing that'll make you smile in this sad, sad film.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Nikhat Kazmi Site:TimesOfIndia
the plot of London Dreams is completely simplistic and linear, often bordering on the implausible. Devgn's journey from Bhatinda to London, his formation of a rock band with a bunch of stragglers, his rise to popularity and his sudden climactic outburst lack all depth. Salman's fall from grace is kiddish too.But there's a lot that works in the film's favour. Topping the list are the performances by both Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan who once again share a scintillating chemistry after Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. It's refreshing to see Devgn return to his angry young man mould as Arjun, a role he's played to perfection in films like Company and Omkara. Salman, as Mannu, the libidinous village yokel, reprises his brattish avtar, playing to the gallery with his throwaway lines and his devil-may-care attitude. Nevertheless, watch it for the Devgn-Salman thunder and for the simple reason that this is definitely one of Vipul Shah's better films.

This film is about relationships and tends to get very real and intense, in the post-interval portions specifically. The scale of LONDON DREAMS is gigantic and the execution of concerts [it's about a band] sweeps you off your feet. In terms of execution, it wouldn't be erroneous to state that LONDON DREAMS is amongst Vipul Shah's most accomplished works to date. Also, it boasts of incredible performances by Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn. But there are hiccups too and it's these deficiencies that bog the film down! On the whole, LONDON DREAMS has superb performances from its principal cast and several emotionally-charged sequences as its two trump cards. But its biggest drawback is its climax and also the music, which is the weakest link of the movie.

Ratings:2.5/5 Reviewer:Chandrima Pal Site:Rediff

the technical flourish and the lavish canvas fail to deliver what's promised. While London Dreams may have liberally borrowed from the classic Amadeus (Milos Forman's take on Mozart and Salieri's lives), it comes across as one of those 'Made-in-China' copies. There's nothing inside.But London Dreams belongs to Salman. And though this becomes a problem for Devgn in the film and he plots to ruin him, there is precious little he can do about it in the theatres. One of the characters say about Salman in the film, "He's not a better talent, he's got adaa (style)". And that kind of sums it up.You may like London Dreams for its beautiful frames, some paisa-vasool moments between Salman and Devgn, a good background score and catchy songs. For the rest, you need willing suspension of disbelief. And large doses of it.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Gaurav Malani Site:Indiatimes
Finally it’s the performances that make London Dreams rock. Ajay Devgn’s restrained intensity perfectly complements the contrasting flamboyance of Salman Khan. Salman takes the lead in the second half but at no point do the performances overshadow each other. Watch out for the scene when Ajay Devgn, seized by guilt pangs, whips himself for his premeditated wrongdoings. Salman puts in a lot of heart in his act and his frivolous nonchalance never makes the drama go overboard. He is likeable as a flirt trying to woo Asin and his doped act in the final reels is compelling.
In times when most films are turning out to be nightmares, London Dreams is a decent entertainer and has its heart at the right place. For its wonderful performances, rocking music and terrific chemistry between Salman and Ajay Devgn, London Dreams is worth a watch.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Udita Jhunjhunwala Site:DNA
An ironic tale that represents a clash between ambition and friendship, somewhat like the far superior Amadeus, London Dreams is given a leg-up by a strong story let down in execution and technique. There are too many missing dimensions to the storyline, and Shah falters in developing situations and characters details even within 2 hours 30 minutes.Salman Khan steals the show. Controlled well by Shah, he delivers with spontaneity, lifting his scenes even if he is stuck with a character too good to be real.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Martin D Souza Site:Glamsham
In the first half, the script is hugely disappointing. There are instances of circumstances that make your jaw drop in disbelief. Thankfully, post interval the pieces are picked up and the script gets tighter. Mercifully, there is Salman Khan (Manu) to grab your attention, with a laudable performance. I'm no Salman Khan fan, but the way he has tackled this role is like he has put his whole life into it. The fun-loving Manu, Arjun's childhood friend steals the thunder from Arjun's nose with his performance, just as he does on stage during their concerts. If you are a Salman fan, this is one performance of his you have to watch.Vipul Shah has garnished the film with some convincing concert scenes but its Salman and Salman alone who turns the table for LONDON DREAMS and makes it worth a watch.

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Anand Vaishnav Site:Buzz18

London Dreams is not your regular male bonding film. The friendship is a little more complex. Vipul takes his own time to establish the plot, giving equal attention to both his leading men. While the story is narrated throughAjay 's character, Salman steals the edge in few scenes. It's almost autobiographical, as Salman's superstardom is all about how he appeals to his fans. Be it the lighter portions initially or his troubled tryst with fame post interval, this is perhaps Salman Khan's best performance ever. The actor is completely in control and emotes like never before.Eventually London Dreams is all about the joy of watching Salman and Ajay's chemistry. Their star power makes up for all the flaws. Both have put their heart and soul into the film, delivering powerhouse, career defining performances.

How many times can you repeat the same joke before it stops being funny? That's a question Kunal Vijayakar ought to have asked himself before unleashing on us his occasionally-funny-but-largely-silly directorial effort, Fruit & Nut. Despite juvenile jokes like peeing on open electric wires, Fruit & Nut is mercifully not the sort of vulgar comedy we've got used to seeing at the cinemas these days. It's best suited for those who don't have a problem with silly, childish humour. I'm going with one-and-a-half out of five for director Kunal Vijaykar's Fruit & Nut. For those expecting anything more, it's possibly the longest ninety minutes of your life .

Neither fruity nor nutty, this film ends up as a total squish. After an unfruitful watch, you feel completely let down since the film boasts of a star cast that includes most of the contemporary funsters of the entertainment industry.The characters do try and whip up some humour, but they are severely let down by the unfunny script. The dialogues too border on the meaningless and leave you wondering what's the point really. End result? You want to grab the DVD of that other film on Mumbai's bungling municipality with its trio of save-Mumbai bumblers who managed to work magic on screen. Jaane Bhi Do nutty Yaaron, there's no point trekking down milestone alley.

FRUIT & NUT, directed by Kunal Vijaykar, is one of those films that succeed in making you giggle intermittently. But how one wishes the film had a strong story in the first place. This one is a senseless comedy and the sad part is, the absurdities here are not too amusing.On the whole, FRUIT & NUT has some funny moments, that's it! A film like this holds very limited appeal.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Nikhat Kazmi Site:TimesOfIndia
Gannu is back, but isn't really geared to take your breath away. His antics, like the animation, falls flat and the film fails to establish itself as entertainment ammunition for newage kids.The mythological largely works in episodic form, showcasing Ganesh's skills at penning down the lengthy Mahabharata with his tusk and then single-handedly taming the rakshas who threatened mayhem in deity land. Really, the narrative is too heavy-handed to strike a chord with PSP kids nor does the animation promise to find favour with the playstation generation. Adults, are you game for Gannu's antics? Not unless you don't have anything better to do. Seriously, when will Indian animation truly come of age!

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Taran Adarsh Site:BollywoodHungama
Bollywood rarely produces mythological movies. But movies like HANUMAN and BAL GANESH do encourage film-makers to present stories from mythology in an animation format. BAL GANESH 2, directed by Pankaj Sharma, encompasses three different stories, all pertaining to Lord Ganesha, in one film and the outcome is gratifying.BAL GANESH 2 grows more and more interesting with every story. The best is reserved for the finale, when Lord Ganesha battles the demon and emerges victorious. As mentioned at the outset, the film is stronger in content and the animation quality is also superior this time. The voiceovers are perfect. On the whole, BAL GANESH 2 should appeal to kids from 6 to 80.

There are dumb scripts and dumber scripts, but Main Aurr Mrs Khanna has got to be the dumbest. You feel nothing for the film's characters because you cannot understand why they behave the way they do. It's the kind of screenplay in which every obstacle in the characters' lives could be overcome by having one sensible conversation which for some strange reason, they never have.I'm going with one out of five and a thumbs down for director Prem Soni's Main Aurr Mrs Khanna; it's a mystery how films like this get made.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Nikhat Kazmi Site:TimesOfIndia
Main aurr Mrs Khanna seems to have no passion at all. Neither love, nor anger, nor pain, nor envy. In an attempt to create a low key drama, debutant director, Prem Soni divests his film of all energy. Truly, this must be Kareena's most thanda performance which fails to strike a single chord. So unlike the feisty actor! Salman too seems to have slipped into somnolent mode, creating a laid-back Mr Khanna who fails to convey the frustrations of a jobless husband. And so infectious is the lethargy, it even manages to curb a usually effervescent Sohail Khan who prefers to play it over the top in most of his cameos. Here, you hardly can make out whether he is heartbroken, happy or couldn't care less.

MAIN AURR MRS. KHANNA, directed by debutante Prem Soni, could've been an interesting story had the drama quotient been a bit stronger. What comes across is too simple and ordinary. Actually, the problem lies in its writing. It wouldn't be erroneous to say that Prem Soni, the director is letdown by Prem Soni, the writer. The writing gyrates from interesting to ordinary to unconvincing and that bogs the film down. The inconsistency is evident all through. Final words? This Mr. and Mrs. Khanna won't live happily ever after!

We have seen many films on marital problems. Main Aurr Mrs Khanna, starring Salman Khan , Kareena Kapoor and Sohail Khan , is no different. In fact, we wonder what made Salman say yes to Prem Soni's directorial debut when he had already done a film on a similar topic in Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar. Surely it's not to revive his brother Sohail's (he is the producer of MAMK) flagging career?Well, whatever the reason, don't hold your breath: Main Aurr Mrs Khanna is a failed attempt.

The film desperately struggles between being a comedy and a sensitive emotional drama but miserably fails on scoring in either genre. The character conflicts seem too insignificant which make you indifferent towards the resulting drama. The narrative lacks depth and ends up being a conventional love story. Prem R Soni tries too hard to add a shade of sensitivity in his direction but loses the grip as his writing is too fragile. The pacing is slow but thankfully the length is short.

Unexpected – is how I would describe this Salman-Kareena-Sohail starrer. I mean, what do you normally expect from a film with Sohail Khan in the lead? Silly jokes. Unrecognisable sounds/grunts. Corny dialogues. Sohail's overdone and so-not-funny antics. This film has it all. YES! But, despite all that, the film is good.Well, maybe it's not as entertaining as Salman's last film Wanted, but Main Aurr Mrs Khanna, with Salman's 'extended special appearance' (whatever THAT means) is meaningful. Without being too pretentious or soppy, the film brings out some basic emotional problems that, if given a chance, Yash Chopra would have turned into a 3-hour musical saga!

Tucked away beneath those pointless songs and some ridiculous, overblown action scenes is a silly yet surprisingly enjoyable tale of misunderstandings and mistaken identities. Like most Bollywood comedies these days, All The Best is far too long, but it has a winning combination of cleverly crude humour and genuine sweetness. Shorter in length – its songs sacrificed, its action scenes trimmed – All The Best might have been a great Diwali treat. As it currently stands, it's a delicious one-time watch. I'm going with three out of five for director Rohit Shetty's All The Best; it's your best bet at the movies this weekend

ALL THE BEST makes no claims of catering to the intelligentsia or the elite. Instead, it's aimed at those who want to spend two hours of their precious life flexing their facial muscles. ALL THE BEST is for those who expect fun and laughter unlimited in those two hours. This one makes you smile, laugh, even break into a guffaw at times. The jokes and the goings-on may appear silly, but who cares! As long as one feels positive and wears a smile on the face even after the show has ended, nothing else matters. On the whole, ALL THE BEST is fun and laughter unlimited.

All the Best doesn't even come close to any of the sparkling gems of milestone laugh riots. In fact, it begins so sluggishly you are almost ready to write it off. Understandably, the current comedy trend doesn't aspire to make any demands on your grey cells and we do not have a problem with that. But the first few reels of All the Best are hell bent on unleashing a complete dumbing down of plot, character, comedy. So much so, even the flowers that proliferate the screen -- the gardens, the bushes, the creepers, the ponds -- are artificial. But if you are patient enough to give the screwballs a bit of time, the goofiness does begin to crackle and the comedy does pick up, post the entry of Sanjay Dutt. All the Best offers some rib-tickling moments, but mostly in the second half as the loose plot gradually gives way to complete mayhem and the characters begin to have fun on screen, specially Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgun.

Though some situations in the movie look forced, but cinema is known for taking such liberties. How else do you think Manmohan Desai would have survived. The best thing about Shetty comedies, are they don't seem repetetive, and every time offers something fresh. Despite using the same comic formula (of punchy dialogues and multiple characters), till now Rohit Shetty has prevented himself from being typecast.Overall, if your doctor has advised you laughter therapy, then go watch All the Best. Ingredients of the medicine? Hilarious moments, rib-tickling dialogues, crisp editing, mind boggling situations, minus double meaning dialogues this time.

In comparison, All The Best is not entirely shabby. Inspired by the play Right Bed, Wrong Husband, it's a star-studded affair, which is (fortunately) low on innuendoes and high on excessive gimmickry and formulaic filmmaking. What makes this contrived farce work sporadically is not its fancy cast but the presence of veteran comedian, Johnny Lever. As the inspired caricature of Karz's Sir Judah, Lever, on the strength of his eyeballs alone, guarantees a good laugh.

the humour works since the treatment is not fully farcical but also has a plot primarily focused on mistaken identities. The screenplay by Robin Bhatt and Yunus Sejawal does resort to intermediate slapstick but the comic timing of characters and the spontaneity in their animated acts keeps the spark live. The gags range from some silly and stretched ones to some fresh and funny lines. The title track is groovy but beyond that Pritam’s music doesn’t stay with you.

Best friends, Ajay Devgn and Fardeen Khan exchange their girlfriends in order to seek approval from Fardeen's millionaire brother, Sanjay Dutt. How and why this happens is best watched on screen. Where All The Best succeeds, is in its ability to stick to the core plot. The confusion never goes out of control and the narrative seldom meanders.

Neither slick nor fast-paced, this film lumbers in circles before crashing into a moronic finale involving ridiculous back-stories about dead family members.In the end, despite its travel-brochure look that might afford some momentary National Geographic-style relief, Blue doesn't have a shred of intelligence, and it sinks in a sea of lame writing and laughable performances.

Blue is fresh and fulsome, boasting of some great deep sea shots ( by Pete Zuccarini, cinematographer, Pirates of the Caribbean fame), stunning above sea level action sequences, a crackling background music score and sound design by India's two Oscar winners (AR Rahman and Resul Pookutty), a short and engaging reel length that keeps the proceedings pithy, two hot girls (Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif too in a glam guest role) and a whole lot of guy stuff....Like, bare-bodied Akshay swimming with the sharks and stingrays, lean and mean Zayed blasting away on designer bikes, Sanjay Dutt, sadly with a paunch, sparring with Akshay in the boxing ring and the threesome donning their diving gear to discover a hidden treasure in picture postcard Bahamas.

Let me keep it concise and to the point. You haven't watched something like this on the Hindi screen before. Never ever! It requires courage, willpower, fortitude, vision and of course, the financial backing to accomplish a project of this magnitude. And debutante director Anthony D'Souza puts his skills and the financial resources to best use. BLUE is not merely a stunning looking film, it's also a well structured film. Most importantly, it's a solid entertainer that packs in so much in those 1.58 hours. Final word? Go, grab a ticket, if you haven't booked one yet. This under-sea treasure hunt is a kickass film.

Blue, directed by debutante Anthony D Souza, sets a new benchmark in Hindi filmmaking.It boasts of some stunning underwater photography, the likes of which you may not have seen before in an Indian film.It has some scintillating action sequences both on the ground and underwater, superbly shot.And the film is a warning to all those women who boast of their so-called bikini shots. Lara Dutta shows you how to wear the two-piece, and look like a goddess of the sea.Now that we are done with the pleasantries, here's what you actually need to know about Blue. It sets a new benchmark in squandering money and opportunity.This film is an example how even with Rs 100 crore -- the reported budget -- worth of eye-popping gimmicks and stunts, you can make thriller that ends up being hilarious.And that's largely because of the ridiculous plot, the inane dialogues and plain bad direction.

Blue is the perfect example of a good 100 crores going down the drain. Sure the film promises some brilliant visuals and underwater images never seen before in Indian films thanks to one of the finest underwater cinematographers in the world (Pete Zuccarini). But sadly the credit list literally lacks the mention of a screenplay writer. Director Anthony D’Souza deserves applause for testing water with entering an entirely new territory, not attempted before this side of Pacific. The logistics of such filmmaking are extremely demanding and he hasn’t compromised on the standards. But his storytelling certainly lacks the finesse which could have made this project a more entertaining fare.Blue doesn’t glue you to the seat. Rather its corniness can make you see red.

So, what is the end result of all this money and talent?

He set out to give Indian audiences a new type of exotic thriller.

Blue has all the ingredients to make a film work – from treasure hunt, breathtaking visuals, underwater action and speeding bikes to resurrecting family honour – but sadly, it fails to touch a chord with the audience. Also for those hunting for a storyline, it actually begins and ends at the basic synopsis level. A thriller should have a racy script that keeps you on-the-edge. Here the pace is rather disappointing.Technically, the camerawork and sound do have an international feel. The three bike sequences featuring Zayed become better and better and the underwater fights are something unusual for a Bollywood film.
