quick review:

Rangrezz, surprisingly puts a solid effort in writing a decent story. Yet, it takes the events to extremes towards the end, makes it too long and loses the plot. Some witty dialogue and a few well-timed performances keep the interest alive in an otherwise uneven second half.

So-So by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...The film has been executed with conviction. The actions scenes are great and accompanied by some great music. Camerawork by Santosh Sivan is commendable.... full review

Thumbs down by K N Gupta, SmasHits.com ...The performance of the cast is praiseworthy with Jackky acting and dancing quite well, ably supported by Vijay Verma's crazy mannerism. Priya Anand looks pretty and acts well.... full review

Thumbs down by Arun Janardhan, Live Mint ...Naadodigal was remade in all the other southern languages and in Bengali, but it needed a cultural adjustment that’s missing in Rangrezz.... full review

Thumbs down by Janhavi Samant, MiD DAY ...Rangrezz is loud but not enough to be cheesy; it is funny but not enough to be a comedy, it is serious but not enough to be taken seriously and has an interesting premise but with so many gaps that it can barely make sense... full review

So-So Movie Talkies ...Though the story of the film is quite unique and the performances decent, the execution is somewhat unsatisfactory and the desired impact is not achieved.... full review

So-So by Aakash Barvalia, MoviezADDA ...However in the second half, the movie doesn't pick up to a high note and rather slows down a bit, to which eventually it maintains a fine balance between poor and excellent. ... full review

Thumbs down by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...For all its drama, competently shot images (cinematographer: Santosh Sivan), and intriguing climax, Rangrezz fails to hold for much of its long duration.... full review

So-So by Mansha Rastogi, Now Running.com ...Rangrezz had immense potential and a thorougly tested story to make for a great watch but the lose screenplay and trite writing ruined the chance. ... full review

Thumbs up by Ankur Pathak, Rediff ...What’s sweeping is the vibrant urgency with which the camera detains some of the movie’s crucial scenes. The exaggerated background score compliments the swift camera movements, but somewhere the Singham-esque violence doesn’t fit in. ... full review

So-So by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...The film has been executed with conviction. The actions scenes are great and accompanied by some great music. Camerawork by Santosh Sivan is commendable.... full review

Thumbs down by K N Gupta, SmasHits.com ...The performance of the cast is praiseworthy with Jackky acting and dancing quite well, ably supported by Vijay Verma's crazy mannerism. Priya Anand looks pretty and acts well.... full review

Thumbs down by Narendra Gupta, Star Blockbuster ...Confusion of genres leaves an unpleasant taste.... full review

Thumbs down by Sudhish Kamath, The Hindu ...Rangrezz is a tight slap on the face of Indian cinema. It hurts to see such abuse of power, money and technical talent.... full review

So-So by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India ...Jackky performs earnestly, showing far more promise and confidence since his previous films.... full review

quick review:

Sona Spa is a metaphorical treat for reviewers. A film about a spa that cures insomnia is itself bland enough to put you to bed.

Review

It'd be safe to say that of the five people who showed up for the screening that I was at, at least 4 of them were there for Naseeruddin Shah. And what a cheat that turned out to be. Not that I was surprised. And actually, the tone he was talking in for the few seconds he is on screen, I am only thankful that there wasn't more of him.


The film otherwise, is pretty much what you see in the trailers. There are people who can't sleep for whatever reason. There are other people who sleep well and through some "bonding" one from the latter group can sleep on behalf of one from the former group relieving the stress. As we are told (again in the trailer itself) if someone sleeps your sleep, they are also going to dream your dreams. There's no new knowledge beyond that, for the characters barely do anything after having new knowledge about each other.


Obviously, the dreams makes for the bulk of Sona Spa and we would have such a boring if film if these dreams weren't deep and dark secrets of the sleepless people. Now, how people who don't sleep dream so that people who are sleeping for them can dream the same dream, is a minor technicality and thus not addressed at all.


Even so, what an interesting premise this was for some psychoanalysis! The original person's dream is a representation of his deepest desires/insecurities. The dream though is so real for the sleep-worker that they believe them to be true. But, none of this is explored at all.


Instead you get some superficial philosophical talk using lines that are supposed to sound profound. Except for Nivedita Bhattacharya (Meenakshi), Aahana Kumrah (Ritu) and the guy who plays Sachin (Indira's brother) all other actors are mostly stiff and the three mentioned are better only in comparison. Pooja Pradhan (Indira) actually looks like she's being held together by the make-up plastered on her face.


In fact, the cinematography is so grainy that you can see the smallest pore on everyone's face. I don't know what artistic purpose this serves, but even in real life you cannot see the face in such gruesome detail.


If only you saw even a fraction of that detail in coming up with stories of insomniacs that were complete. Or at least they'd have some meaning for the viewer, even if the meaning wasn't deciphered or understood completely.


Watching Sona Spa is like having 15-20 minute boring dream played on repeat for two hours. I really wonder how Sona Spa would've turned out if it were a short.
