WBRi Movie Review - Blood Money (2012) Hindi Film: Kunal Khemu's Sincere Act in Vishal Mahadkar's Debut Bollywood Thriller

Kolkata, April 2, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) Bollywood has always been fortunate to have bright and talented child actors, who have portrayed pivotal roles in several films over the years. The memorable classic, ‘Masoom’ (1983), stands as a fine example in this regard, since the movie had starred two extremely promising (not to mention sweet!) young actors, Jugal Hansraj and Urmila Matondkar. The latter, in particular, had gone on to become one of the top leading ladies in the Hindi film industry. This trend has continued among the current generation of Bollywood actors too, with noted child artists Hansika Motwani (of ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ fame) and Kunal Khemu (who had looked oh-so-sweet in films like ‘Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke’ and ‘Raja Hindustani’) looking to hit the big league as the leading actors in their films. However, the road to stardom has not been uniformly even for either of this two young actors. In particular, Kunal Khemu, who had a promising start in the 2005-hit ‘Kalyug’ and did more than a decent job in the fantastically made ‘Traffic Signal’ (2007), has repeatedly tended to hit road-blocks in the form of forgettable ventures (‘Superstar’, ‘Jai Veeru’ and the likes!). Khemu’s last movie, ‘Golmaal 3’, however, was a huge hit (although he was part of an ensemble cast there!) and the actor now looks to gain greater consistency at the box-office with his brand new flick, ‘Blood Money’. Can the movie, directed by first-timer Vishal Mahadkar, really establish Kunal Khemu as a frontline star in Bollywood? While the actor delivers a nice performance, the script lets him down!


WBRi Movie Review: Bumboo (2012) - Jagdish Rajpurohit Induces Some Genuine Laughs

Kolkata, April 2, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) Making a well-crafted, genuinely funny comedy flick is one of the most challenging tasks for any filmmaker. Directors need to be aware of the pulse of the viewers and blend the right brand of classy, situational humor in their films to harbour hopes of actually scoring at the box-office. Makers like Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Kundan Shah had raised the bar in this genre of films, with beautiful movies like ‘Golmal’ and ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron’. Their legacy was carried forward (not in the same classy manner, as many would argue!) in the 90s by David Dhawan and his series of ‘No.1’ movies. More recently, Rohit Shetty and Priyadarshan have emerged as the masters of making successful Hindi comedies. Debutant director Jagdish Rajpurohit also tries his hand at making a fun film in his very first directorial venture - the rather under-publicized ‘Bumboo’. The movie did not come with the added burden of a huge pre-release hype (which seems to accompany practically all big-budget films these days!) and, with an intriguing plot, ‘Bumboo’ was expected to be a good addition to Bollywood’s collection of successful comic flicks. The film turns out to be pretty good too!
