He steals from the rich and gives to the poor! Like Robin Hood, the title hero of The Lizard is a philanthropic thief, except the Lizard makes his rounds in 1930s Shanghai. Corrupt police chief Chen Can (Law Lit) is assigned to bring down the Lizard to appease the sinister Japanese forces, but the Lizard constantly eludes his grasp. Little does Chen Can know that the wily thief actually works for him! The Lizard's true identity is the mousy Cheng Long (Ngok Wah), who dons a mask and takes to the streets to spread his righteous message.

The movie begins with Krish Malhotra's (Arjun Kapoor) session with a psychiatrist where he expresses his depression, suicidal tendencies. The movie unfolds further with the IIM-Ahmedabad campus rendezvous of Krish, the Punjabi boy with Tamil Brahmin Ananya Swaminathan (Alia Bhatt) at mess. Instant connect between the two is shown. Ananya keeps on counting the score of IITians who proposed her. Krish does not obviously want to be one amongst them. Their campus life, evolution of their relationship from being 'just friends' to the love-birds (physically and mentally), combined studies, and off-campus eateries' hang-outs are all portrayed beautifully through songs - Offo and Locha-E-Ulfat. Krish and Ananya look good together with Krish being the quiet, reserved, yet assertive one and Ananya being the self-assured, expressive one. After two-years of courtship, both Krish and Ananya commit to each other. But then begins the real challenge of convincing their respective families. A typical face-off i.e. North Vs. South in between Ananya's parents (Shiv and Radha Swaminathan essayed by Shiv Kumar Subramaniam and Revathy) and Krish' mother Kavita Malhotra (Amrita Singh) during the convocation is portrayed realistically. Krish and Ananya chose the tough path to convince one another's parents rather than just eloping. We can see the efforts taken by both of them to win parents' approval for their marriage. The plot projects the culture-clash, the discomfort and the pressures due to diverse culture, playful digs at one another's culture, turbulent relationship between Krish and his alcoholic / abusive father Vikram Malhotra (Ronit Roy), impact of parents' clash on krish' character, northern culture of dowry being a very regular thing, Krish' bonding with mother, Ananya requesting his father to be nice to krish, Krish' mother being possessive of him, perceptual differences etc. without any melodrama.Does Krish and Ananya succeed in convincing their parents that they truly love each other in spite of the culture, community, religion, language differences ? If yes, how ? And, if yes, how long the efforts continue ? Do their love survive the conflicts in between their families? Does actually some love is left between them in midst of uncertainties and family conflicts?Director and Story Writer:Director Abhishek Varman has done justice to Chetan's book. Definitely the book is a delight to read, but the movie also showcases various aspects beautifully. Cast and their Performance: Arjun as Krish is very good. It is great to see the way he handles his relationship with his mother. Even he projects his emotional vulnerability well as far as his relationship with father is concerned. I adored those moments when his eyes spoke his love towards Ananya.Alia as Ananya has definitely given a very cute and wonderful performance. Though she doesn't look much of a south-indian, but she has carried the character on her shoulders very well. She looks pretty, charming and sweet. Amrita as Krish' mother Kavita is so effortless and natural. Ronit as Krish' father Vikram although has less frames, still, he is very very good. He brings lot of depth to the character.Shiv and Revathy as Ananya's parents are very good. Sharang Natarajan as Ananya's brother Manjuntah Swaminathan is also noticeable. Achint Kaur as Amrita's sister also gives a good performance.Music: Music is composed by Shankar, Ahsaan, Loy. Lyrics are penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.Mast Magan (Arijit Singh, Chinmayi Sripada) is very good. Offo (Aditi Singh Sharma, Amitabh Bhattacharya) and Locha-E-Ulfat (Benny Dayal) are full of energy. Iski Uski (Akriti Kakkar, Shahid Mallaya, Shankar Mahadevan), Chaandaniya (K Mohan, Yashita Sharma) and Hullaa Re (Shankar Mahadevan, Siddharth Mahadevan, Rasika Shekhar) are also good.Cinematographer: Binod Pradhan has covered Delhi, IIM-A campus, Chennai, Mumbai all very nicely.Moments to watch out for: Krish while trying to ask for Ananya's hands with her parents proposes to the complete family: I want to marry all of you. He has actually brought rings for all of them. Krish hugging his father towards the end of the movie.Thumbs up: Watch this movie, probably most of us would be able to relate with this simple movie. And for all those people who did inter-caste or cross-culture marriage are definitely going to relate with the story. Thumbs down: As such no thumbs down moments. The movie has its own natural flow. Probably the dialogue by Krish (to express that it was natural to feel towards Ananya) was not required: "Punjabi hoon. Khoon garam hota hai humara."One-Liner: 2 States indeed breaks the wall dividing two states. Enjoy this...

Mnai ratnam's worst movie. its dull, loose and empty at places but somehow An exhilarating and thrilling adventure brimming with lush, breathtaking visuals, lively musical numbers and a captivating love triangle. Very satisfying entertainment for the eyes, ears and heart - mythic romance and action adventure to a throbbing beat. a dark sychologically trenchant modern retelling of the ancient epic The Ramayana. could have been far more better.

Peanuts with M&Ms, chips with cookies, popcorn with candy? whatever it is, these opposite combinations create a unique and satisfying, but at the same time, rather addictive taste in your mouth, leaving you reaching for more. In the same way, a good movie can leaving you satisfied, yet wanting more. ?The Way Back? is a tale of determination and the struggle to regain the things you most hold dear. Following the story of several Siberian gulag prisoners attempting to escape from the strong grip of communism, ?The Way Back? provides a moving illustration of the difficulty involved in walking over 4,000 miles of some of earth?s harshest terrains in hopes of regaining freedom. Freedom from more than the grasp of communism, however. Freedom from past mistakes, shame and guilt. Freedom from hatred and lies, misunderstandings and accusations. Even freedom from this earthly life.The leadership of Janusz, a young Polish prisoner falsely accused of espionage, was critical to the success of their mission. Without his guidance none of the prisoners would have survived. Janusz?s wife had been tortured and forced into providing false witness to his alleged illegal actions. Janusz, rather than holding a grudge, strives each day to walk closer and closer to a time and a place where he can be reunited with his wife. Throughout the film, he continually motivates and encourages his companions to complete their arduous journey. The location and scenery for this film is breathtaking. From the harsh conditions of snow covered mountains, to the unforgiving, unrelenting desert, it draws you into the movie itself making you feel, by the end of the movie, as if you have also completed a strenuous journey alongside the characters you have grown so attached to. While some movie watchers would rather steer clear of this feeling of artificial fatigue, I believe it allows the viewer to grasp a bit of a sense of what it may have been like. It provides a feeling of accomplishment and celebration when the characters succeed in an endeavor and a mutual desire for survival as they struggle to live through this ordeal. The ability to feel that deeply for a character or a group of characters is, in my opinion, a rather moving experience. ?The Way Back? satisfies the audience?s cravings for salty and sweet by the way it combines suffering with joy, hardship with pleasure and despair with hope. And while this movie may not be your typical Friday night choice of guilty pleasure, I, for one, will be finding my ?way back? to the couch ready for another adventure with my favorite escapees.
