India's Best Movie Of The Week
All the 6 major film industries have come up with at least one release this week. While Telugu and Bengali (Tollywood & Tollywood) have one release each - both films with high buzz - Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada Cinemas have multiple releases. But it is Bollywood which delivered a couple of biggies in the form of the dance/musical Street dancer 3D and sports-drama starring Queen Kangana.
Telugu film Disco Raja starring Ravi Teja received a mixed response with praise for the lead actor who enacted a complex and layered role with ease and the core subject of the film, routine execution is criticized. The Tamil film, Psycho directed by Mysskin is a typical Mysskin film and is an interesting watch. The other two releases in Tamil didn't make any noise.
None of the Kannada films (5 films in all) are worthy of your attention except for Naanu Matthu Gunda which tells the story of an auto driver who developed a friendship with a missing dog. Shivraj Pete's debut film as a lead actor has a few good eye-wetting moments. There is a biopic in Marathi - about Vitthal Bhai Kotwal titled Shaheed Bhai Kotwal the unsung freedom fighter. Despite a lot of potential for a little classic in the subject, the director failed to make it an engaging watch.
The hotly anticipated Bengali film, Dwitiyo Purush directed by star director Srijit Mukherjee disappointed to an extent. But it's a one time watch nonetheless. Malayalam film Shylock starring Megastar Mammootty is a fan-fest and is a good commercial entertainer which took the box office by storm. While Street Dancer 3D has nothing new to offer except a couple of good dance numbers, Kangana Ranaut's Panga is bogged down by a generic storyline for a sports drama. It's not a bad film. But it doesn't stand out among the number of sports films releasing these days.
Hence, none of the films released this week are declared as Pycker India's Best Movie of the Week as no movie met our standards.
