SHAANDAAR – ALL GLOSS AND NO SOUL

SHAANDAR

Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, the ever young Pankaj Kapur in a Vikas Bahl film. The director’s follow up to the fabulous QUEEN.   An awesome film Oh no it’s just an illusion.

One more Bollywood film which solely banks on it’s grandeur with absolutely no content or soul. It follows the template of most Bollywood films these days where two much money is spent on nothing. I wish these producers spend some money on hiring a scriptwriter.  Get the script in order and then pour in the money.

I feel sorry for poor Shahid Kapoor whose talent gets wasted in rotten films. Despite being in the industry for a long time he isn’t sure of what works for him. But he’s teaming up with Vishal Bhardwaj yet again. So you never know.

Vikas Bahl you hooked the whole nation with your enthralling Queen. Give us a film where we can root for the protagonist yet again.  Wishing you the best. 

I yearn for the glorious 80’s and 90’s where filmmakers were sure of how they wanted to present a film. Some wonderful soul stirring films were done with so much ease. There was no dearth of entertainment too. 

The film makers down south have come of age with smaller content driven films  ruling the box-office. I yearn for the same magic in Bollywood.

As for Shaandaar – It’s not quite Shaandaar enough. Please stay away or re-watch Talvar instead. Don’t waste your money on this bore fest
