RAEES

RAEES is the fictitious story of a man named Raees, set in early 1980’s to 1990’s Gujarat, India. The film explores how Raees’ relationships and meteoric rise helped him build an entire empire from scratch, to make him the single most powerful man in the state. Less of a gangster but more of an impresario, Raees gains popularity, a cult following and most importantly the public’s trust by demonstrating entrepreneurial flair, unfettered determination to achieving his goals and ironically a heart of gold. His layered character traits encapsulate an inimitable blend of personas, making him revered, loved and feared. Always thinking ahead of the curve and using revolutionary ideas of management which were unheard of during his time, but are now doctrines for students, Raees eliminates every opposition that comes his way. However, his downfall will be crossing paths with the no-nonsense police officer Majumdar, whose sole reason for existence is the elimination of crime. What ensues next is a tumultuous battle between the two, which forms a key defining element of the film’s narrative.

The film released on March 24, 2017 to mixed reviews.

 

Plot

A young man Kanan (Suraj Sharma) returns to India from Canada to marry his long-term girlfriend Anu (Mehreen Pirzada), but comes to know that as he is a manglik (born under an unlucky star) he has to get married to a tree before getting married to her. He very reluctantly marries the tree, which is duly chopped down after the completion of the ceremony. As a result, from that day onwards he is haunted by the spirit of a woman named Shashi (Anushka Sharma), who lived in that particular tree and hence claims to now be ‘married’ to him.

The story of Phillauri and Shashi is slowly revealed via the latter’s flashbacks. Back in an unspecified time period, Shashi is a bright young woman who never fails to read the works of a poet named Phillauri that is regularly published in a local daily. Everyone in the village of Phillaur knows that the poems are written by the singer Roop Lal ‘Phillauri’ (Diljit Dosanjh), who is the heart-throb of the village. However Roop Lal notices that Shashi, unlike all the other village girls, never comes to hear him sing. When he confronts her one day and tells her that he is the Phillauri who writes the poetry by narrating one of his famous poems to her, he is shocked when Shashi slaps and insults him. She asks him to use his talent – of being able to connect with the common man through his songs – for something important (especially when thestruggle for independence is on) and not for frivolous matters. From that day onwards Roop Lal is a changed man, dedicating his life to knowing and understanding the poetry of Phillauri (which it is clear now that he is not the author of), and spreading its message via his beautiful singing to others.

On one particular night while Roop Lal is alone at home singing one of Phillauri’s poems, Shashi comes to him and reveals that she is the one who writes poetry under thepseudonym of ‘Phillauri’ (which she can’t do openly, being a woman). Subsequently love blossoms between the two (the poet and the singer who translates her poetry to song and spreads its message far and wide), but Shashi’s elder brother (a reputed doctor of the village who brought her up) eventually comes to know about the affair and intervenes between the lovers. Roop Lal confronts Shashi’s brother and admits to having been an alcohol-addicted good-for-nothing who still is not worthy of her, but tells him that he (Roop Lal) is going to Amritsar to record all the songs written by Shashi and will eventually return and ask for her hand in marriage.

The very fact that Shashi writes poetry is a revelation to her brother, and as time passes he too reads the poems and starts appreciating her obvious talent. Meanwhile Roop Lal records the songs in Amritsar (thegramophone record is credited to Roop Lal ‘Phillauri’, thus being an amalgam of his name and her pseudonym) and is paid a handsome fee of three hundred rupees. He immediately sends the entire amount as a money order to Shashi’s brother, along with a letter stating his intention to return and marry her on Baisakhi. Shashi’s brother, by now convinced of Roop Lal’s changed nature and good intentions as well as the deep love between the couple, starts the preparations for her marriage.

On the day of the wedding Shashi comes to know that she is pregnant, but does not disclose the news to anyone except her close friend Amrit (Nidhi Bisht). She expectantly waits for Roop Lal along with all her relatives and the entire village, but eventually the day ends with him nowhere to be seen on any of the buses from Amritsar. Her brother has to face the intense embarrassment and shame of sending everyone away, and this in turn hurts Shashi so much that she commits suicide (by hanging herself from a tree) due to an overwhelming sense of sadness, despair and betrayal.

In the midst of all these flashbacks by Shashi’s spirit the parallel storyline in the present continues with Kanan (whose confused ramblings about seeing a ghost naturally no-one believes), ending up in trouble with Anu who feels that he is not really interested in marrying her (which is partially true since he is getting cold feet). In order to clear the misunderstanding Shashi finally manages to reveal her presence to Anu as well (though Anu still cannot see her), and having heard her entire painful story Anu realises that Shashi’s spirit is in fact still stuck on the mortal plane due to her unfulfilled love. At that point Anu’s grandmother happens to play her favourite record, which as fate would have it is the one Roop Lal recorded. The record label mentions the recoding date as 13 April 1919, which results in an epiphany for Kanan who immediately takes Anu (with Shashi in tow) to the site of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, which took place on that very day 98 years ago.

The movie ends with Shashi’s spirit reuniting finally with her lover Roop Lal’s (who was indeed killed in the massacre on the very Baisakhi day he recorded their songs and was to return to marry her). Before they both ascend to heaven Shashi tells Kanan and Anu (who can now see her) to love and cherish each other always, and that is what they promise each other as they embark on a new phase of their very own love story.

It is a Hindi remake of the critically acclaimed Bengali filmRajkahini (2015). The film managed to recover its costs and became an average grosser.

 

Plot

In August 1947, after India sought independence from Britishers, Last Viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten gave Sir Cyril Radcliffe, the responsibility of dividing India into two parts – India and Pakistan. Sir Radcliffe drew two lines – one in Punjab & another one in Bengal. This line was known as the Radcliffe Line.

Begum Jaan (Vidya Balan) is a prostitute who runs a brothel between the cities of Sakkergarh & Dorangla. The prostitutes are a number of girls she raised herself, who were either abandoned or disowned by their families and now work for her. The members of the brothel also include an elderly woman known as Amma (Ila Arun), Sujeet (Pitobash Tripathy), a local worker who brings her customers, and Uncle Salim (Sumit Nijhawan), a gunman who guards them. They are pestered by government officers Hari Prasad (Ashish Vidyarthi), Iliyas Khan (Rajit Kapoor), and Inspector Shyam Singh (Rajesh Sharma) who visit her and ask all of the residents to evict the brothel, as it lies on the land that theRadcliffe Line is to pass through.

After several failed attempts to convince Begum Jaan and her band to leave, Hari and Iliyas enlist the help of Kabir (Chunky Pandey), an infamous killer in Sonapur, to threaten her to vacate the brothel. Kabir proceeds to kill Begum’s beloved dogs. He then he kills Sujeet while he is running errands, enraging them further. As a result of Kabir’s intimidation tactics, Begum asks Salim to train every one of her girls to use weapons and fight back.

Meanwhile, Master Ji (Vivek Mushran), Laadli’s teacher, is in love with Begum Jaan & proposes to her, unaware that another prostitute named Gulaabo (Pallavi Sharda) , harbors feelings for him as well. Begum Jaan rejects his proposal and asks him to leave, leading an irate Master to concoct a plan to kill her. He convinces Gulaabo to run away from the brothel, betraying Begum Jaan. Gulaabo later slits his throat, but ends up being shot dead soon after.

That same night, Kabir and his men attack the brothel, as Begum and the girls fight back but to no avail. The men throw fire javelins inside the brothel, causing the building to be engulfed in flames. Begum Jaan and her girls smile while looking at their home being set ablaze; they walk inside the building and shut the doors. They burn to death as Amma narrates the story of Rani Padmavati of Chittorgarh, who refused to fall into the hands of the enemy, and instead martyred herself and died a valiant death, not unlike the plight of Begum Jaan.

As the movie ends, Illiyas, Hari Prasad, and Shyam Singh are seen to be remorseful of their actions; Illiyas kills himself, and we are shown the remains of the brothel and the end to Begum Jaan’s legacy.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania (English: Badrinath’s Bride) is a 2017 Indian romantic comedyfilm,directed by Shashank Khaitan, and produced by Karan Johar under the Dharma Productions banner. Starring Varun Dhawanand Alia Bhatt in the lead, the film marks the second installment of a franchise that began with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014). Principal photography for the film began in May 2016, and the film was released on 10 March 2017, on the Holi weekend.

 

Plot

Badrinath “Badri” Bansal (Varun Dhawan) is the younger son of a wealthy family in Jhansi. In a flashback, we see that Badri’s older brother, Alok (Yash Sinha) was in love with a girl and was going to leave the family for her (because their father disapproved), but decided against it after their father’s first heart attack. Now Alok is married to Urmila (Swetha Basu Prasad) through an arranged marriage and she is not allowed to work despite being very intelligent and professionally trained, more than Alok himself. Alok is also depressed at having to leave his love and be forced into a marriage, so spends a lot of time drinking. Badri fears the same fate for himself so when he sees Vaidehi Trivedi (Alia Bhatt) at a wedding, he becomes obsessed with her and makes it his mission to marry her with his father’s approval.

Vaidehi is also clearly more intelligent than Badri. She has a full education and is secretly training to become a flight attendant while Badri only passed the tenth grade. She’s initially uninterested in getting married and is even offended by his marriage offer. But when Badri helps Vaidehi’s older sister, Kritika find a husband and even resolves a dowry crisis, Vaidehi agrees to marry him. On their wedding day, however, Vaidehi never shows. Badri is heartbroken and his father is furious. He commands Badri to find Vaidehi and bring her back so that they can “hang her from the ceiling.” Despite being afraid of his father’s words, Badri goes to Mumbai to find Vaidehi, where he discovers that she’s already moved to Singapore for a flight attendant training program.

Badri shows up on Vaidehi’s doorstep in Singapore and kidnaps her. On the way, he pulls over and lets her out of the car trunk and they have an argument. Badri is furious at her for leaving him at the altar and she apologizes, trying to assure him that the reason she left was not because of him. Badri grabs her by the throat when a police car pulls up and takes them to the police station. At the police station, Vaidehi covers for Badri despite him having kidnapped her and attempted to choke her. Over the next few days, Badri stalks Vaidehi. When his father calls, Badri lies and tells him that he didn’t find Vaidehi and his father tells him that he’s started looking for other brides. This terrifies Badri and he attempts entry into Vaidehi’s workplace. She stops him and tells him she’ll marry him only if he can convince his father to let her work and live in Singapore. Badri gets drunk that night and causes a scene outside Vaidehi’s residential building and they have to go to the police again, where this time Vaidehi has to pay $1500 to bail him out.

Badri moves into Vaidehi’s apartment where she cares for him by cooking for him before leaving for work every day, which humbles him. They spend time together with friends and tour Singapore together. Over time Badri begins to respect Vaidehi’s independence and grows impressed by her job and intelligence. He also remembers his sister in law and feels sorry that she doesn’t get to work. When Badri is finally deported, Vaidehi comes to miss him and becomes depressed by his absence.

Back in Jhansi, Badri’s sister-in-law is pregnant and the father holds a mega-pooja to ensure a boy is born. Badri feels sorry for his sister in law and finally understands why Vaidehi ran away. Before the pooja, he gets severely drunk and berates his father for being disrespectful to women. He blames his father for being the reason that he can’t have Vaidehi when suddenly he sees Vaidehi from the corner of his eye. She tells him that she loves him and wants to marry him. Together they stand up to his dad and tell him that they will get married and Vaidehi will work as she pleases regardless of whether he agrees or not.

In the epilogue, it is shown that Badri and Vaidehi maintain a long distance relationship while she finishes her training program in Singapore before moving back to India and starting her own flight attendant training center. Badri’s sister in law gives birth to twins, one boy and girl, and it is shown that insofar his father has been treating both of them equally. She also starts working in the family’s car showroom with Alok and even gets her own office. Badri and Vaidehi promise not to collect any dowry for any of their children.

PlotEdit

In 1943, as the Second World War rages on, India is fighting a combat of her own: independence from British rule. Subash Chandra Bose, founder of the Indian National Army, has become disenchanted withMahatma Gandhi‘s Ahimsa (non-violent) movement and desires to fight fire with fire. Recognizing the growing dominance ofImperial Japanese Army in the Indo-China region, the INA allies itself with the Japanese, hoping to ride the wave to Delhi. Indian troops in the British Indian Army are locked in pitched battles with both the INA and its Japanese contingent. In one such skirmish close to the Indo-Burma border, JemadarNawab Malik (Shahid Kapoor) and a group of fellow soldiers are cornered by the Japanese infantry. Running to escape on a barge, he is shot and captured as a prisoner of war. Meanwhile, the INA’s top brass desperately seeks finances to replenish its heavy ammunition to aid the charge to Delhi.

Concurrently in India, Julia (Kangana Ranaut) a leading film star of the Indian cinema is the star performer of a dance troupe that entertains civilians and armed forces alike through films espousing her daredevilry. Zulfi (Saharsh Shukla) is her butler, make-up man, and trusted confidant. The films are produced by Rustom “Rusi” Billimoria (Saif Ali Khan), a former Indian action film star whose career was cut short when he lost a hand in a film stunt gone wrong. He is now Julia’s mentor and the scion of a production house. Billimoria is on friendly terms with the resident British commander Major General David Harding (Richard McCabe), who encounters a gem-encrusted royal sword belonging to a Maharajah (Surendra Pal) at a gathering hosted by Billimoria. Slighted by the commander’s arrogant demeanor, the King endeavors to send the sword to Indo-Burma border, where the INA hopes it can fund its artillery and drive the British out of India. An opportunity arises when Harding proposes dispatching Julia and her troupe to the war-torn border where he hopes to raise the sagging morale of his troops through her shows. When Billimoria and Julia (who are now in a relationship) object, Harding promises top-grade security and coerces them by threatening to block supplies of film stock from England, as Hitler-led Germanyhave stopped shipments. Billimoria’s affair with Julia causes rifts in his family, with his wife demanding a divorce and his grandfather concocting a ruse to prevent Billimoria accompanying Julia on the tour.

On board the train, Jemadar Malik, who has apparently escaped as a prisoner of war, is assigned as security detail to Julia, much to her chagrin. Crossing a river, the full complement of passengers and boatmen come under fierce Japanese aerial attack, resulting in numerous casualties. The British assume Julia has fallen, but she has survived and is accosted by three Japanese soldiers. Malik, who has also escaped unscathed, arrives in time to save her from being killed and in the process, captures one Japanese soldier Hiromichi (Satoru Kawaguchi) as a hostage to lead them back to the Indian border. Through the rain-drenched jungle and a war-zone swarming with enemy platoons, Julia, Malik, and Hiromichi march slowly to their destination. Combing an anti-aircraft bunker, they barely escape a booby trap, with Malik furious at Hiromichi for leading them into an ambush. As Julia’s gentleness and compassion counteracts against Malik’s battle-hardened cynicism and aggression, the two fall in love, despite the overwhelming realization their journey will be over when Julia is reunited with Billimoria.

Back in India, Harding again proposes that Julia, now engaged to Billimoria, be dispatched to the front-lines, with anti-aircraft gun protection this time. Julia continues to exhibit feelings for Malik: she endorses him for the prestigious Victoria Cross and deliberately forces him to volunteer for a stage show. Billimoria begins to have suspicions about her behavior, which are confirmed after one surreptitious and passionate episode between Malik and Julia during an air-raid. Desiring vengeance, Billimoria volunteers as a stage hand on Julia’s next show and after a tense routine, indirectly reveals that he is aware of her infidelity and ready to engage in a fight-to-the-finish with Malik. Meanwhile, Zulfi, who has also survived the earlier raid and is in reality a spy for the INA, has been entrusted to take the sword back to the INA by Mema, an INA agent in the British ranks, and Malik. It is then revealed that Malik did not escape his captivity in Rangoon but was freed by the INA who enlightened him about the evils of British rule in India, thereby enlisting him in the Gandhi regiment of the INA. Convinced of the cause and endowed with a fresh purpose, Malik clandestinely meets Julia before a show and delivers final instructions to Zulfi, who takes up a position outside her tent. Major Williams (Alex Avery) racially insults Zulfi after trying to forcibly enter Julia’s tent to make her begin the show. Infuriated and inebriated, Zulfi hurls derogatory threats to the British on the radio during Julia’s show. The outburst is heard by Billimoria, Harding, and other British soldiers, who rush to uncover the offensive culprit. Zulfi pleads guilty in Julia’s presence on the stage but is shot dead by Williams, while Harding discovers Zulfi possessed a British Army officer’s pistol. Distraught, Julia protests Billimoria’s decision to not give Zulfi a proper burial as another member of Julia’s troup covertly abets Malik in a show of weapon check. As night falls, amid torrential downpour, Julia and Malik give Zulfi a proper burial, musing over loyalties and motivations.

During an attempt to arrange a rendezvous for transferring the sword with the INA via a letter, Malik and Mema are caught by Julia, who accuses Malik of betrayal. Torn between his feelings for her and his cause, Malik retorts by saying Julia is blinded by what she sees and the truth is lost on her. The letter reaches the INA, but Mema is trapped by the British while relaying messages. Next day, Harding blackmails Mema into revealing her co-conspirators by threatening to kill her son, at which point Malik discloses his true allegiance. Singing the INA anthem, Malik marches up defiantly to Harding, who signals Williams to shoot Mema dead. Enraged at this callous attitude, Malik lunges at Williams, but is captured and tortured by his former comrades. Horrified at this sequence of events, Julia turns a new leaf: she extracts Malik from a train bound for Delhi and resumes Zulfi’s journey in getting the sword to the INA. At the bridge where the sword is to be handed over, Malik and Julia are cornered by the British. Malik convinces Julia to cross the bridge by covering her. In the ensuing gunfight, Malik is seriously injured by mortar fire while Billimoria arrives with British reinforcements. Harding tries to dissuade Julia from crossing the bridge with another false promise, but the mortally-wounded Malik defies him by walking across the bridge, and sacrifices his own life so that Julia can continue. Harding orders the bridge be blown up, causing grave injuries to Julia. Seeking to redeem himself, Billimoria asks Julia for her last wish, who appeals that he continue her task of delivering the sword to the INA before falling to her death. Unsheathing the shining sword, Billimoria massacres the rest of the British troops on the bridge, decapitates Harding, and delivers the sword to the INA. The film ends by proclaiming the INA raised the Indian flag in 1944.

  5. Govinda may have been the Hero No 1 of the 90s, but much has changed since then. Just like playing Snake on a Nokia phone, the hero flying in the air to score baskets or doing a backflip in the air over a speeding car to avoid being run over is outdated. At a time when even the Khans and Kumars of Bollywood are making content-driven films instead of trying to sell fluff on the basis of their star-power, Govinda seems to be desperately trying to cling to his ‘hero’ days. Case in point: his ‘comeback film’ Aa Gaya Hero, the trailer of which was released recently.

    ALSO READ: Govinda just launched his restaurant and it’s called Hero No 1, obviously 

    In a recent interview with Bombay Times, Govinda said, “When I decided to make a comeback, I had to cash in on my brand of cinema; I didn’t want to disappoint the public. People liked my performances in Kill Dill and Happy Ending, but I was hardly there in them. Sometimes, your effort doesn’t reach the audience. I’ve ensured that my upcoming film will satisfy people who come to see a Govinda film.”

    And that’s where lies the problem. We’re not sure if anyone is willing to even see a ‘Govinda film’ today.

    He promises to deliver a quintessential “Govinda film” today, but when was he ever known for out-and-out action? Even in his heydays, Govinda was famous for his impeccable comic timing, not for being an action hero. His biggest hits – Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, Hero No 1, Haseena Maan Jayegi – have been successes because he was able to tickle our funny bone. The millennium has not been too kind to Govinda, but even his hits in the last decade or so, like Bhagam Bhag and Partner, were comedies. Action has never really been the actor’s forte, so why try to be something at the age of 53 that he could not be in his prime?

    Picture this: Govinda sends goons flying in the air with a single kick or a punch, blows away a politician’s cap when he contemptuously spits and jumps off a roughly 50-feet-high fort. He says cringe-worthy things like, “Naam poochne se pehle diaper toh pehen lo.” It’s frankly embarrassing to watch a much-loved actor, past his prime, gyrating with a skimpily clad twenty-something.
