    One Line Review: Munna is an avid admirer of legendary Michael Jackson. But circumstances take him away from his passion until he makes a comeback with a bang.

    Positive Points: Nawazuddin Siddiqui turns out to be a show stealer with her applause-worthy performance. Action and dance choreography of the film are its major highlights.

    Negative Points: Munna Michael is premised on a weak and predictable plot. It offers nothing which you have not seen on the silver screen.

    Plot: Abandoned in a rainy night, a little boy is found by Michael (Ronit Roy), an aging dancer who does not get work anymore. Michael brings the little boy up as his own son who now means the world to him. He names him Munna (Tiger Shroff). While growing up, Munna is fascinated by nothing but dance. He, too, idolizes legendary Michael Jackson like once Michael did. But once he grows up to face the world, Michael advises him to leave dance and find a corporate job.

    Soon, destiny takes Munna to Delhi where he meets the nouveau riche Mahinder Fauji (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). Mahinder runs a hotel, but his real business is grabbing people’s land unlawfully and making a luxurious living out of it. He is in love with a girl Dolly (Nidhhi Agerwal), who is almost double his age. She dances is a hotel. To impress her, Mahinder learns dance from Munna. He even offers her a job in her hotel. But the twist in the story comes when Munna and Dolly fall in love. Will Mahinder let go of Dolly so easily? Or he will wreak havoc on Munna and Dolly’s paradise? To know, watch the film.

    Performance: The cast of the film is headlined by four film old Tiger Shroff, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and debutante Nidhhi Agerwal. Tiger has done a good job. We all have to admit that he is one of the finest action stars from the current crop of actors in Bollywood. No one can beat him in dance also. Every frame of Munna Michael shouts out loudly that the film was written keeping him in mind. It is great to see the kind of action sequences he pulls off and amazing dance moves he performs in the film. But does a star need just that to build his stardom? It is true that Tiger has built a massive fan following within 3-4 years of his debut. He is quite popular among children. But a true film enthusiast wants to see diversity in his acts. Like all his previous films, he does not show any variation in terms of acting.

    Talking about the new actress Nidhhi Agerwal who is making her Hindi film debut with Munna Michael, she does well what she has been told to do. In the role of a small town girl wishing to conquer the world, she looks good. She plays her part convincingly. It is not easy for an actress to hold a candle to Tiger Shroff when it comes to dancing, but Nidhhi does that quiet gracefully. Overall, she has played her part convincingly. But it is Nawazuddin Siddiqui who steals the whole show with his natural act. He is perfectly cast in the role of a man who originally

      One line Review: Stories of four women who are caught up in their own webs trying to find a way out and breathe fresh air.

      One line Review: Stories of four women who are caught up in their own webs trying to find a way out and breathe fresh air.

      Positive Points: The realistic facet of the society is presented bluntly. A very brave attempt on part of the makers. Performances of all the leads add life to the stories and make the viewers resonate with them.

      Negative Points: The narration builds up the story to the peak till the climax but ends on a middling note.

      Plot: The lives of four women living in an old building in Bhopal have been depicted precisely. Bua ji (Ratna Pathak) who is a 55 year old widow, runs a sweet and snack corner. She owns the old building where several other tenants live. Bua ji who is expected to go to Satsangs and temples is fond of reading erotic novels and has ‘lipstick wale dreams’. Sherin Aslam on the other hand is a mother of three children, her husband is mostly in the Saudi Arabia for work so she has acquired a job here as a sales person and excels in her field. Sherin’s husband who now has returned and is jobless does all the wrong things and uses his wife as a sex toy. Rehana is a college student who is forced to wear Burkha but fights for her ‘jeans’ rights in college, loves to sing and dance like Miley Cyrus but is made to stitch Burkhas in the shop by her parents. Leela’s story is where she is stuck between two guys, one the love of her life and other one her fiancé. All the women try to rebel against the societal norms in their own little way and dream of living their lives with freedom.

      Direction and other Technical Aspects: Director Alankrita Shrivastava has definitely stepped into a brave zone by depicting the lives of small town women in such a light. It has never been seen or shown in Indian cinema before where the sensual desires of women are portrayed boldly. These natural desires do occur in both the sexes but since our society is patriarchal, it never really likes to address women needs and like to see women in a certain way. The line where Sherin’s husband says “Biwi ho shauhar banne ki koshish na karo” when she excels and wants to keep her sales job, explain the patriarchal society’s thought process. Charushree Roy’s editing is crisp and has supported some scenes vividly which are shot in closed spaces. The cinematography is good and the narration is fast paced, also, Ratna Pathak’s voice over at the backdrop worked well for the visuals. There are scenes which are brilliantly shot and executed by the camera person and the actors. The pre-climax narration where at the backdrop of bursting crackers, bursts the dreams of these four weary souls seeking solace is catured noteworthily.

      Performances: Ratna Pathak is a gem. She plays the 55 year old widow who tries to explore her sensuality which according to the society is something unimaginable at this age. Her performance is just right and the viewers completely feel for the beautiful Bua ji who
