judy a (ru) wrote: Best movie I have seen in a long time. I just don't know why it's not showing at most theaters. I don't know how anyone could see this movie and not like it! Very inspirational but take a box of kleenex! Just don't miss seeing it!!!

Priti P (us) wrote: It seems that this film has been made with two primary objectives. Firstly, to encash a small budget meaningful cinema using the gem of an actor, Vidya Balan, thereby replicating the success of 'Kahani'. Secondly, to showcase an under-represented Hyderabadi community in Bollywood cinema. May be the Hyderabad ties of the producers have something to do with this.'Kahani' was a blockbuster because stalwart Vidya's acting was well supported by strong script and direction. 'Bobby Jasoos' has Vidya in her full form. But the scripting needs a lot of fine tuning and the direction is average. In 'Kahani', Sujoy Ghosh presented Kolkata, 'the city of joy' like never before. In comparison, Samar Shaikh's presentation of old Hyderabad is plain vanilla. In spite of the casting of all acclaimed actors as character artists, the required energy and richness in the scenes is missing.The backdrop of the movie is the over populated Mughalpura region of old Hyderabad. Bilkis (Vidya Balan), the eldest daughter of the conservative Ahmed family is a self taught and self proclaimed detective aka 'jasoos'. She has no formal training in this area. But she avidly watches the hindi detective serials and calls herself 'Bobby Jasoos'. She gets mundane detective jobs and roams fearless in all nooks and corners of Mughalpura at all times. In fact, she is the only one who takes her profession and her professional skills seriously till she is contacted by an elderly Anees Khan (Kiran Kumar). He maintains a rich but secretive personality and asks her to find three people, one after the other. For each endeavor, he pays her handsomely (a bit too much by her standards). But, as for the clues, he can only provide the name, age and birth mark of missing persons and not any photo. Bobby along with her working allies - Shetty (Prasad Barve), Munna (Akash Dahiya), Suhail (Tejas Mahajan), works on the assignments in her trademark 'nave but full-of-drama' style. She gets success. But somewhere she gets suspicious of the whole operation and decides to unravel the root of the matter. Also, somewhere alongside she discovers mutual liking and love with Tasawur (Ali Fazal), a popular tv presenter who also lives in Mughalpura and assists her in her endeavors.As expected, Vidya is flawless in her scenes. In her bid as the detective, she dons a wide range of makeovers - hobbling fakir, funny toothed palmist, fatso tv producer etc. She does a terrific job with each one of them. But most of these avatars simply zoom off the screen, without taking the required time and leaving the desired impact. Ali Fazal looks younger to her. But he acts well and matches her performance in the scenes where they are together. Arjan Bajwa (Lala) plays a goon and inspite of soorma and stubble, he looks like a hunk in all his scenes. His acting is nonchalant. As such, not many lines are given to him to deliver. Kiran Kumar has a substantial role and he could have made it impactful. Surprisingly, he did not. Instead, Supriya Pathak (Zebo, Bilkis' mother) and Tanvi Azmi (Kausar, Bilkis' khaala) have simple roles, but they leave impact! Rajendra Gupta (Bilkis' father) and Benaf Dadachanji (Noor, Bilkis' sister) are good as well. Rest are OK. Cinematography is good. Music is average. However, the number 'Arziyaan de raha dil' is good.All in all, it's a sweet and clean movie with Vidya occupying more than 90% of the screen time.

Alec B (nl) wrote: The film suffers from an overabundance of characters that don't all come into focus. However, I respect Gondry for making something that feels honest while still indulging in his more whimsical styles. It is refreshing to see something about teens that doesn't always try to be "realistic" in it's world construction.

Walter C (fr) wrote: It's a documentary about the famous writer Harlan Ellison. I think the worst thing about this was that it felt like it was filmed within seven days and most of the interviews that Ellison gave on camera felt like things he would have done if he was out promoting on television. It didn't feel like I learned anything new about the man.

Mike S (au) wrote: A perfect movie. I do not know how you make a script this smart.

Brandon W (ru) wrote: 28 Days Later is directed by Danny Boyle, and it stars Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris, and Brendan Gleeson in a zombie thriller about a man who wakes up from a coma about a month in, and he sees that the whole city is completely abandoned, and filled with infected people, while meeting up with some survivors. I remember that I was looking forward to it as it was Alex Garland's writing debut, and while I did liked it fine, I was bored throughout most of it. So I watched it again because my mom's boyfriend wanted to see it again, and it was better than I remembered it. The acting is pretty stellar, which they weren't well known that time before this movie came out. I like how it was shotted, which I forgot about how low budget it was shot, and it's interesting to see it that way. The score by John Murphy is really good, which one of the songs would be well known even to this day. The characters are likable, and the soldier scenes were pretty interesting that you can see from their point of view of what's going on. The writing by Alex Garland is pretty good, and the direction by Danny Boyle is well shotted. The only problem that I have with it, is that the beginning started out really slow, but it picks up when the infected shows up. 28 Days Later is a really great film that it's interesting to see a talented director do something like this, and make it surprisingly stand out.

Carolyn G (it) wrote: This was no "Breakin'" - thankfully! The acting and story weren't that great but the music and dancing really were, for it's time. I watched it again recently and found myself getting into it.

Eric R (kr) wrote: Mystery Street follows a young detective, Peter Morales, a boston detective who is assigned a case of dead girl who they believe has been murdered. The film actually opens with the crime. It's sets up exactly what did happen to this young girl, and we witness her murder first hand. What ensues is a murder mystery and one of the first films that I know of which shows scientific/forensic techniques to help solve the crime. This is showcased by the detectives working with a harvard scientist to help after finding the skeletal remains. Mystery Street has enough intrigue to stay entertained but it never really does anything exceptionally well. Its solid but definitely a lesser noir.
