Simmba - Movie Review ( 3.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

With Simmba, Rohit Shetty officially introduces his cinematic universe of super heroes or I must say Super Policemen. This universe has now two super policemen Sigham and Simmba. Let me share a secret, wait for the pre credit song scene and you will get a glimpse of the third super policeman, who will be introduced in 2019. Just like any Marvel super hero origin movie , Simmba is also one origin movie and has all the ingredients in balanced proportions.

3 things that make 'Dubai Frame' the best observation deck experience in town

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Observation decks are the key attractions for tourists especially in big modern cities like Dubai. Dubai offers many observation decks in form of dedicated viewing platforms and lounges/restaurants on high levels of many of the high-rise structures across the city, including Burj Khalifa. Dubai Frame is one such unique structure and stands out among all as the perfect place to soak in the views of this magnificent city because of following three main reasons.

Zero ( Movie Review 2/5 Stars)

By  Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Growing up, all of us who love Hindi Movies, have loved Shahrukh Khan. Every year through late 90s to early 2000 , there has always been one blockbuster movie, where he has always been in his element. He has won Film Fare best actor award ( which is equivalent to Oscars in India) in a row for couple of years. We as an audience who grew up loving him expects the same level of impact and greatness from his Movies even today. That's why we get upset and thrash an otherwise average movie like Zero. If I strictly talk about film Zero then it was an ok movie perhaps a little drag and got off topic in second half, but if I look at it from a Shahrukh Khan film perspective then it was a disaster.

Pinky Memsaab: A Dubai Story ( Movie Review 3.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Pinky Memsaab is an experience, it’s a bouquet of unique characters and their emotions/personal journeys put together by debutant director Shazia Ali Khan. As a Desi expat living in Dubai one can relate to it on so many levels which makes it even more interesting.

Aquaman (Movie Review 4/5 stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

DC is getting there and creating a niche of their own. Finally, a fast-pace adventure movie with bright visuals, thrilling action set pieces and convincing CGI to come from the world of DC. I know you would say, Wonder Woman is already there from DC in this regard but believe me even wonder woman wasn’t this happy and lit. I have never seen a diverse super hero movie like this, imagine “Lord Of The Ring” with tone/treatment of “Thor Ragnarok” enhanced with CGIs like “Valerian” while being set underwater. Amidst all of this, massive screen presence of Jason Momoa takes you on a journey that will satisfy the comic nerd in you to the core.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Movie Review : 4/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the coolest super hero movie ever made. I am usually not a fan of animation movies but as an audience I was so engrossed in the narrative and characters on screen that I forgot if it was an animation or live action. Animation is also unique and brings the actual format of comic books to life.

2.0 (Movie Review 2/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Shankar's grand spectacular 2.0 has it all , first grade CGI , two superstars , a believable story line embedded with a great message but what it doesn’t have is the subtle art of knowing when to stop which makes this whole experience exhausting and tiring.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (Movie Review 2.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Hollywood these days is all about cinematic universes we have MCU, DC universe, Monsterverse, StarWars universe etc. and the thing about such movies is that audience already has a set of expectations. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald belongs to Wizarding World and is the second instalment in the Fantastic Beasts film series, and the tenth overall considering the Harry Potter film series. As an audience my expectations with the Wizarding World movies are adventurous storyline, unique Wizarding world elements (flying brooms, mysterious creatures etc.) and Magic, lots of CGI, wand waving, unique chanting driven Magic. Do we get all that with “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”? my answer is Yes but maybe not in a balanced format.

The Nun - Movie Review (3/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Basic criteria to judge a horror film as I always say is how good it is in scaring the audience and The Nun does a very decent job in that perspective. What makes a horror flick from decent to great is its ability to stay with you after it's over and let your imaginative mind keep the experience alive, that's where The Nun doesn't score well.

Load Wedding - Movie Review (4/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Nabeel Qureshi's Load Wedding is a satire on issues within Pakistani lower middleclass family culture with just the right mixture of comedy, complex characters and intense emotions. The best thing about this film is that it educates and entertains at the same time.

Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 - Movie Review (3.5 / 5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Jawani Phir Nahi Ani was the first film I reviewed when I started this blog in 2015 and I revisited the review again today and amazingly that review is valid for Jawani Phir nahi Ani 2 as well. The only thing that has changed from the first film is when the love story of Sherry takes over in the second half , film takes a relatively serious tone this time.

Parwaaz Hai Junoon - Movie Review (3.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Parwaaz Hai Junoon by Momina & Duraid productions and distributed by Hum films left me confused. I was not sure as an audience what filmmakers wanted me to focus on. IT's a brilliantly performed, beautifully shot , well directed and technically superior film but also at the same time narrative has so many sub stories scattered throughout to call it a complete film.

Crazy Rich Asians - Movie Review (3.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Recently we are having Asian (mainly South East and East) overdose in the cinema houses, starting with Skyscraper being setup in Hong Kong, followed by The Meg taking us through Thailand and China, and now with “Crazy Rich Asians” the Asian experience reaches its maximum and lands us in Singapore, in the most spectacular way possible. Crazy Rich Asians is a 2018 American romantic comedy-drama film based on Kevin Kwan's novel of the same name. It is the first film by a major Hollywood studio in 25 years to feature Asian-Americans in the predominant leading roles in fact you don’t have any other race in this film but Asians.

Pepsi Battle of the Bands - Season 3 Episode 5 Review

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Episode 5 was all about patriotism, but I only felt it from two bands Xarb and Bayaan, rest were just not Mili Naghma material. My mind simply fails to comprehend why Judges love Tamasha, no doubt Tamasha’s musicians have a class but their vocalist has terrible accent to his singing. His vocal technique and animation works superbly sometimes like it did in Roshni and Sajna but for “Is parcham kay say talay” failed miserably along with the composition. Tamasha’s only plus point is how well their musicians play but without impressive vocals I don’t see much future for them at least in my play list.

After the humongous success of Vishwaroopm in 2013, legendary Indian actor/director Kamal Hassan is once again back with Vishwaroopam 2. Apart from main lead, he is also the director and writer of the film. Rahul Bose, Shekar Kapur, Andrea Jeramiah and Pooja Kumar have also reprised their roles. This movie also got delayed because of its controversial content on terrorism and religious views but has finally released now. Music director Gibran replace Shankar Ehsaan Loy in this movie. It is also simultaneously shot in Hindi and dubbed into Telugu and Malayalam.

Pepsi Battle of the Bands - Season 3 Episode 4 Review

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Episode 4 of Pepsi Battle of the Band was packed with usual entertaining elements, Music was good, band members looked dapper, Hosts were fun, Judges made sense and elimination was justified. What stood out to me was the improved fashion sense and swagger of the participants, whether it was Xarb’s lead vocalist beating ghunghroo casually on his chest or Tamasha’s vocalist having metallic cones on the shoulder or Kaghaz’s leading lady supporting a bold nose ring. It all looked very sleek and perfect.

The Meg - Movie Review (2.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

I will be honest,  my biggest fear that keeps me away from my otherwise favorite activities like snorkeling and scuba diving is to encounter sharks. So just like Skyscraper played with my fear of heights this one touched my shark fear, in The Meg-A way possible.

Social Connect with Tom Coulston

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Pakistan film industry is very small and at the moment going through a revival phase. We seldom get good movies and when we do they are a big deal. Recently we got Ali Zafar starrer marvel “Teefa in Trouble”, movie was really good, and everyone associated with the project really stood out. We noticed Tom Coulston an actor from London playing the role of Andy in “Teefa in Trouble”, so decided to contact him for our Social Connect segment and to know about his experience working in Pakistan film industry.

Pepsi Battle of the Bands - Season 3 Episode 3 Review

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

With a new flashy big stage, inclusion of more famous judges and addition of a fun host, Pepsi battle of the bands episode 3 takes the standard of reality talent shows to the next level. From episode 3 onward we will have knockout rounds, so every band has to do their best otherwise they will not go forward. Starting the episode with a performance by Strings was refreshing and Ahmed Ali Butt added a little humor/fun to the very rehearsed hosting style of Ayesha Umar.

Why Mr. Khan

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

I have lived all my life in Middle Eastern countries as an overseas Pakistani, that is why my connection to my home land is not that strong. And as far as politics is concerned all I could remember from childhood is that I hail from the family of Jialas (term used for avid supporters of Bhutto), Bhutto senior’s picture used to be in our living room with PPP flag always flying on the roof of our house and in one election may be the 93 one, I sat awake all night with my grandfather counting which party is winning.

Pepsi Battle of the Bands - Season 3 Episode 2 Review

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Episode 2 had some more auditions where few bands again stood out from the crowd. Also, final reveal of the selected Top8 bands was also added in the end in a typical elimination style from any talent show and what a shocker it was. The band Dhool which Meesha Shafi called hidden gem and discovery did not make it to the final top 8. Dhool’s Nukta was my top choice from the episode as well.  

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Mission: Impossible – Fallout, will remind you how great pre-superhero/graphics induced, simple yet hardcore action movies used to be. It’s thrilling, engaging, funny and visually stunning all at the same time. All the elements flow naturally and are very balanced, humor doesn’t feel forced, action is raw/appropriately placed and storyline, even though obvious, still manages to engage the audience till very last minute.

Dhadak - Movie Review (2/5 Stars)

Review by: Danish Lakdawalaa

We all know Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak is remake of very recent Marathi hit Sairat and launches the star children (all hail to nepotism). I haven't seen Sairat, so for me, I experienced it as a standalone film. Set in the locales of Udaipur and Kolkata; Dhadak is a love story and revolves around a lower-class boy Ishaan (Madhu) who falls in love with an upper-class girl Jhanvi (Parthavi) and is about their struggles to be with each other.

Teefa In Trouble - Movie Review (3.5/5 stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Teefa In Trouble is no doubt one of the finest films to come from Pakistan film industry. Technically it's a very strong film and can compete with any 100-crore budget masala entertainer from Bollywood. It slightly suffers from the makers ambition like most Pakistani films these days but is definitely entertaining and worth watching in cinema.

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Pepsi’s answer to Coke Studio, “Pepsi Battle of the Bands” started July 15th and the first episode was a blast. Everything, from production quality to flow of the episode, from judges comment to quality of music, was spot on brilliant and of standards one expects from a quality show. Pakistan desperately needed a talent hunt show of this caliber and with lucrative prize money of 50 Lacs plus royality, record and concert all over Pakistan deal it has become one of the biggest show of all times.

Skyscraper - Movie Review (3.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Dwayne Johnson is the highest paid actor in the world and there is a reason for that. His movies are all about having a good time and Skyscraper is no exception. Was the screenplay perfect? No, did plot make any sense? No, Were the action sequences logical? No, but did I have an amazing time at cinema? Yes, and this last Yes has the power to make one ignore all the other Nos.

The First Purge - Movie Review (2.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

“The First Purge” is a dystopian action horror film and is prequel to extremely successful Purge trilogy. These Purge movies are made with a budget of 9 to 13 million USD and always end up making more than 110 million USD, making them extremely profitable. Audience for this genre is limited but loyal. “The First Purge” follows the same pattern as the first three movies in franchise and does give the audience what they are looking for but in bits and pieces.

Afdhal Ibtisamah Dental Clinic - Review

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

I started a review blog only because whenever I looked online for reviews (and I religiously read reviews before I do any new thing), I would never find the right kind of review for me. Till now, on my blog I cover Movies, Eateries, Books, Amusement parks/activities and now I want to expand into services and fitness. So, I am starting services with review of a dental clinic I visited recently.

Ant-Man and the Wasp - Movie Review (4/5 stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and the Wasp is sequel to 2015's Ant-Man, and the twentieth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). I am really amazed at how Marvel Studios have managed to maintain the timeline over a period of 10 years with 20 very successful films employing multiple writers/directors, something at which others big franchises like DC, Star Wars etc. have failed. Another thing that I love about Marvel movies is their ability to be part of the larger cinematic timeline and yet be individual standalone entertainers. This one is no exception and fits right well with in timeline, 2 years after Civil War and just before the events of Avengers – Infinity War and yet can be viewed individually. Initially when I saw the Marvel Studies release schedule for 2018 I wondered how “Ant-Man and the Wasp” will survive after the Avengers Infinity War release but let me just say this is the perfect film to come after the massive 5 starrer action-packed Marvel super hero extravaganza that Infinity War was.

Sanju-Movie Review (3.5/5 Stars)

Review by: Danish Lakdawalaa

Rajkumar Hirani’s movies always have a clear message embedded within entertainment that comes through satire on daily routine Indian life. So, I was wondering what is his message this time with his latest release Sanju, which as we all know is biography of Sanjay Dutt. Film begins its narrative with the help of a writer (Anushka Sharma) - the third person who our protagonist speaks his heart out, to prove that he is innocent and this innocence echoes throughout the film as a crystal-clear message.

Sleep Paralysis or Paranormal Activity - You Decide

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Have you guys ever heard of sleep paralysis? Have you ever experienced it? I have once, and it was the most terrifying experience of my life. My logical brain tells me that it was sleep paralysis, but my Desi heart knows it was more than that, here is my account of it and I will let you guys decide was it just sleep paralysis or was it something more. For those who don’t know what Sleep Paralysis is, it is a state when, during awakening or falling asleep, a person is aware but unable to move or speak. During an episode, one may hear, feel, or see things that are not there. Modern day people usually assign most of their paranormal experiences to this phenomenon as it provides a sort of logical and scientific explanation to otherwise unexplainable things.

Race 3 - The Salman Khan Spectacular

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Race 3 works, and I don’t know how. Screenplay doesn’t make sense, acting apart from Anil Kapoor is mediocre, Songs are forgetful, action for most part feels repetitive and still Race 3 works. I wasn’t bored in fact I enjoyed my time and I have no clue what worked for me. I believe it’s just Salman Khan.

7 Din Mohabbat In - Movie Review (2.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

To be honest after looking at the name (inspired by 7 din ladki in dialogue of Shahrukh from "Kal Ho Na Ho") and trailer of the film (where plot looked a lot like  Brandon Fraser and Elizabeth Herley starrer 'BeDazzled') I didnt have high expectations from this Eid release. This movie seriously lacked originality and on this point only this "Eid entertainer" really met my expectations.

Kaala - Movie Review (3/5 Stars)

By: Suhinth Mohan

Most celebrated superstar of Indian cinema Rajnikanth has returned to the screens with his latest film Kaala. Kaala is a second consecutive collaboration of Rajnikanth with the director Pa. Ranjith after Kabali in 2016. Movie was suppose to release later this year as Rajnikanth’s sci-fi action film 2.0 was scheduled in April. As the post production got delayed for 2.0 it made way for Kaala to be released early. This movie also stars Nana Patekar, Easwari Rao, Huma Qureshi, Samuthirakani. Music was given by Santhosh Narayanan who was also part of Kabali. The announcement of the movie created buzz as the previous collaboration Kabali didn’t meet fans expectations. The movie is also produced by Wunderbar films which is own by Dhanush. CBFC of India has certified this flick as U/A (unrestricted public exhibition subject to parental guidance for children below the age of twelve). Rajnikanth’s movie got this certificate after 27 years. Previously Thalapathy directed by Mani Ratnam obtained a U/A certificate in 1991.

TAG - Movie Review (4/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Jeff Tomsic's TAG is pure fun. Before I get into the review I just want to say that whoever missed Jeremy Renner in Avengers Infinity War will love his role here, as his action sequences (yes there is some pretty good action here) will remind you of his Marvel Avatar and that too in a good way. Warner Bros might not be getting the DC cinematic universe right but their comedies are spot on, after Game Night this is another fun film on similar notes.

Ocean’s 8 Review: These Pros May Have a Con (3.5/5 Stars)

By:Victor Philip Ortiz

17 years after the first Ocean’s Eleven which itself was a remake of the original 1960 film, we’re treated to a whole new version of the popular heist series that now features woman because it’s 2018. But don’t let that fact prevent you from seeing Ocean’s 8, because it’s still a stylish, funny film as the previous entries in the series were, even if the plot didn’t wow as much.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (3.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has it all from roaring giant dinosaurs to volcano eruptions, from claustrophobic horror to Chris Pratt’s usual charisma. J.A. Bayona understood what audience required from the franchise and delivered it perfectly. It is the 5th installment in the Franchise but probably the second best since the original Steven Spielberg 1993 classic.

Veere Di Wedding - Movie Review (3/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Shashanka Ghosh's Veere Di Wedding may feel pointless but is never boring. Narrative is well put and produced on screen but lacks the required graph. Just Imagine in Dil Chahta Hai there was no major conflict and focus was all on Amir Khan along with some mediocre music. It will still be a watchable experience but not a classic one as Dil Chahta Hai is.

Deadpool 2: Bigger and Bloodier – but is it better?

By: Victor Philip Ortiz 

The Merc with a Mouth, ups the ante in this sequel to the 2016 hit. By now everyone has some idea about the comic book character Deadpool. Its first iteration in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine was met with various criticism since it basically botched the true nature of the comic book character. But thanks to leaked footage that gained positive fan reaction, the 2016 movie was greenlit albeit with a lower than the usual budget. That didn’t stop the creative minds of the filmmakers and star Ryan Reynolds, which made Deadpool one of the best comic book movie to release in 2016 (I still prefer Captain America: Civil War).

Raazi - Movie Review (4/5 Stars)

By: Danish Lakdawalaa

Set in 1971 during the tense situation between India and Pakistan, Raazi is based on Harinder Sikka's novel 'Calling Sehmat' which is about the daughter of a spy who strategically becomes the daughter-in-law of an opposing spy. Director Meghna Gulzar has done such an astounding job that even for a minute you will not flip your eyes & your focus, interest and excitement remains intact throughout the film.

The movie BEYOND THE CLOUDS marks Oscar-nominated and award-winning Iranian director Majid Majidi’s entry into Indian Cinemas. When the project was announced it created a great vibe across the fans who knew about Majid Majidi’s work in Iranian film industry as well as his collaboration with the Indian music maestro A.R. Rahman in his previous projects. The film also marks the debut of Ishaan Khattar (Amir) as well Malavika Mohanan (Tara).

Rampage - Movie Review (2.5/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

I love massive monster action films. It’s always fun to watch cities being destroyed, with Heroes fighting impossible giants carrying big guns literally and figuratively. Who doesn’t want some may believe science experiments funded by evil corporations to go wrong. Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage has it all, but the balance is slightly off.

Desi Bites : Avengers: Infinity War Special

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Avengers Infinity War is getting all the hype these days and why shouldn’t it. Avengers Infinity War is the Mega Movie event of not only 2018 but of all times. I guess there hasn’t been an occurrence of such mega proportions in the cinematic world. 10 years with 18 movies and dozens of characters all equally loved, appreciated and blockbuster at the same level and then to have all of them converging into one movie has never been heard or seen before. So, I have decided to dedicate this Desi Bites post entirely to Avengers Infinity War.

Blackmail - Movie Review (3/5 Stars)

By: Danish Lakdawalaa

I had no expectations from this Irrfan Khan starrer as I didn’t see any trailer or promotional material before going to cinema. All I knew was that, it’s an adult 15+ rated comedy. I must say I am not disappointed and not having expectation enhanced the experience as well. Film deals with the financial and relationship struggles of a common middle-class man which in return makes him do unimaginable things.

Cake - Movie Review (3/5 Stars)

By Hamza Shafique (Instagram / Facebook)

Asim Abbasi's Cake is a bag of mixed emotions and it left me disputed. There are many moments of sheer brilliance but then there are also basic scale/pacing problems that holds it back from giving the audience required cinema experience.
