Deadpool Has Redefined The Superhero; It May Shock You (Review)

It’s not your regular superhero movie..

Its a revolution, an ode to all superhero movies, a unique, strange saga of lustful love, without any boundaries; a dirty shithole of kickass violence, blood, gore, profanity.. its everything your mom warned you about; but still, it will trap you with its funny anecdotes, humorous take on life even as the superhero is being drilled with iron rods and bullets.

The only thing which will piss you is the censor which our ‘moral gate-keepers’ have unnecessarily imposed on us. Everytime a ‘fuck’ or ‘asshole’ was beeped, the audience in the hall emitted a collective sigh, cursing those inhuman censor board members who decided to kill creativity and some fun. (mail to rajani@nfdcindia.com right away, and tell Shyam Benegal how such censor ship is destroying cinema. His censor board revamp committee can make a change!

Overall, whatever be you age.. if you have ever loved, adored a superhero (except Wolverine!), then this Valentines, watch Deadpool. It is a roller-coaster ride, which can unsettle you, decode you.. make you fall in love somewhere.

4/5 (Warning: Its an Adult movie.. R rated in USA)

Update 1: Deadpool collected $12.7 million on day #1, which swelled to $150 million by the time this extended weekend ended. It has been declared as the highest grossing R-rated movie ever!)

Checkout what folks at IMDB are saying. It must be fantastic, considering that it has received 8.7 rating as of now! (February 15, 2016)

Here is what Rotten Tomatoes have thought about this masterpiece. I mean, 84% score is really something!

ABCD 2: A Dance-Musical Extravaganza Which Has Very Few Parallels In Bollywood

Remo D’Souza delivers yet another installment of a musical-dance extravaganza, which can give a good fight to the Step Up series now. Carrying forward from the original ABCD, this dancing franchisee is taking some serious form now; as Disney has already backed the project, and mainstream actors such as Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor are now part of the team.

If we leave aside the script and the story, then what we get is a series of high performance dance performance, sprinkled with patriotic zeal and ofcourse, Ganpati bappa mourya.

Remo, along with Prabhu Deva and a team of outstanding dancers such as Dharmesh Yelande as Dharmesh; Lauren Gottlieb as Olive; Raghav Juyal as Raghu; Pravin Bhosale as Chotu; Sushant Pujari as Vernon; Punit Pathak as Vinod; Karthik as Raju and others deliver a solid punch of creativity and dance, which has very few parallels in Bollywood.

On a hindsight, someone who is not that great dance enthusiast, can find some of the dance sequences tad too long, and a bit too many. But in case you love dance, then you will lap up every twist, and turn of the movie. God, when you see an auditorium in a city like Lucknow, filled with dance enthusiasts clapping and shouting on some out of the world dance moves, then you got to believe that ABCD series has found its niche audience.

Varun has tried his best to learn and deliver dance sequences like a pro, but he has still a long way to go before he can be compared with legends such as Hritik and Shahid. Was a bit disappointed with Shraddha, as her dance moves couldn’t generate that intensity which was visible with other dancers on screen, including Varun. But again, she can’t be blamed as the director chose to give her bit less space, as the feeble romantic story between her and Varun was half-heartedly accomplished.

Prabhu Deva as Vishnu sir, the Guru of the troupe, is the central pillar of the movie, and he has acted, danced and performed exceptionally well. I can see that IMDB has given ABCD 2 a rating of 6.5 as of now (June 20, 3.00 PM).. I cant be that harsh with this musical-dance spectacle. 8 would be my justification of this movie.

Disclaimer: Even if you don’t love dance, do watch this one as who knows.. Any Body Can Dance!
