Teen Patti

Amrita Tripathi gives you the latest on Teen Patti.

Teen Patti, is the story of a mathematics professor Venkat Subramanium (Amitabh Bachchan) who is a perfectionist scholar in math and has rediscovered the randomness and has just 3 yeears left to retirement. With the suggestion and help of Professor Shantanu (R Madhavan) and three students he then tries to evaluate his thesis in practical sense and unveils the doors to the casinos and other underworld frames.

Starting it as an experiment they get trapped in a series of unpredictable situations, Prof Venkat starts getting a blackmail call which starts dictating when and where they should play. A good sequence of mystery is very well played out. The suspense is good and holds you for moments.

Later he gets the reward at Cambridge University, which he declines to accept, as he feels guilty for one of his student’s death and considers his knowledge as destructive and believes that knowledge should be constructively used.

Brilliant performance by AB like ever. In my view, no one else could have portrayed this role better than Big B, his presence itself makes the most of the scene. Tremendous energy and sync of the emotions.

R Madhavan is flawless and plays the negative shade very well in sync with his good persona and then the helper later in the movie. The new comers have justice to their roles and seem really confident in front of the camera.

Cinematography is world class and matches really well with the background music giving a pleasure to the audience in watching the phenomenal 3 hour flick.

My Ratings:
Direction - 4/5, story-line - 3/5, cinematography - 3.5/5, Music & background music - 3/5
Overall Rating - 3.5
Go for it to watch AB - 5/5 Ben Kingsley was good too.

Go for it and get the best out of your money.


Karthik calling Karthik

Amrita gives you her take on Farhan Akthar's latest.

to my expectation I entered the theater with a little high expectation from Karthik calling Karthik, but to my dismay, I was disappointed right from the beginning, the star cast intro was catchy and innovative, but the initial 15 minutes were boring and dragging to show and explain the character of Farhaan Akhtar, just a little later the movie picks up fast and goes smoothly but fails to entertain well, not even a single scene to be called as a fantastic one. A slow melodrama, with least scope to the actors to give their best.

It could have been much better if it was a suspense thriller rather than a psycho patient’s story suffering from schizophrenia. Farhan (Karthik) is a schizophrenic, and is afraid to face people, one early morning he gets a call, just the time he is planning to commit suicide because he considers himself a failure, devoid of friends and love in his life. The call changes his life like a miracle, he suddenly becomes confident and successful, has his beloved Deepika Padukone (Shonali Mukharjee) by his side and is happily enjoying his life, all with the help of this caller, he discloses the fact to Deepika, about getting daily calls from someone who is called Karthik. Deepika insists that he has some mental disorder and must seek a psychiatrist help.

His life becomes hell after this as Karthik had asked him not disclose about their conversations to any one considering people will interpret that he is mentally disturbed. Rebuilding of Karthik's life back is what can sensitize people, a good effort to create a suspense there but still lacks the perfection.

Movie is just average, I can rate it as 3/5. A one time watchable movie. I suggest you go for Teen Patti or MNIK or rather 3 idiots and wait for KCK to be shown on TV.
