13B (2009): One of the best Indian Horror Movies made in last 2 Decades

Indian filmmakers were well known in the early 60s-70s for delivering some of the best thriller and horror movies and exploration of that genre has been declined over the time.

Though we saw ‘Tumbbad’ in 2018 which was a masterpiece but yet there are not many horror movies which are worth remembering. But few are more than a masterpiece.

The 2009 ’13 B: Fear has a new address’ is one such movie which has an engaging storyline and a thrilling suspense.

The movie has little flaws but overall a great horror flick to watch. It stars R Madhavan and Neetu Chandra in the lead roles.

It was considered to be the best film of 2009.

Its a story of a family who moves into their new house and as the story unfolds we witness amazing twists and thrills. The strangest thing is the television. Watch the movie to find out further.

We definitely need sequels of such movies but only on one condition i.e the script must be good.

One of the best Indian horror movies made in last two decades.

The Masterpiece of 2018 ‘Tumbbad’ Earns ONLY 14 Cr. which is the FAILURE of Audience not the Movie

We saw many Bollywood movies in 2018 and some really won our hearts. But Sohum Shah’s ‘Tumbbad’ was an unique concept which we never saw in Bollywood ever.

‘Tumbbad’ directed by Rahi Anil Barve was inspired from mythological stories. The movie was visually so amazing with a great storyline and amazing performance by the actors.

It took the makers 5-6 years to shot this film. So much of hard work was put up by the whole team under a budget of Rs. 5Cr.

The film was released in October 2018 and it really deserved more than it barely made.

It’s really sad to know that such an amazing film just had a total collection of Rs. 14 Cr which is the FAILURE of Audience and not the movie.

We must support such great content. Feel really sad as a movie lover for such movies which are true art but remains unnoticed by the audiences.

‘Why Cheat India’ has a STRONG take on FLAWED Indian Education System (⅗)

‘Why Cheat India’ is a story about a Cheating Mafia Rakesh Singh (Emraan Hashmi) who is involved into educational scams but overall has a different motive for it.

The story revolves around Rakesh and we get to know how scams take place easily in our country.

The first half is totally engaging with best performances by Emraan Hashmi, Shreya Dhanwanthary and all the supporting cast.

Though the film loses it’s grip and continuity in the second half yet it has a strong and emotional message at the end.

The film has been shot on real locations to make it more realistic. The story has some flaws but Emraan Hashmi’s performance is worth watching.

Cinematography is above average and unnecessary love story and songs are some of the weak points of the film.

Overall the film is worth watching as it mainly focused on the malpractices carried out in the poor Education System of our country.

‘Liftboy’: A RELATABLE & ENGAGING tale with Best performances (⅘)

The plot revolves around a Liftman’s son Raju Tawade who is pursuing Engineering but due to some family problems has to take up his father’s job where he meets Maureen D’Souza a widowed lady who changes his life forever. We see an amazing tale which gives us life lessons along with entertaining us.

‘Liftboy’ is a simple yet a great story which can relate to everyone’s life. A type of ‘middle cinema’ which we must have last seen in Hrishikesh Mukherjee or Basu Chatterjee movies.

Jonathan Augustine who has written and directed this film is making his directorial debut in Bollywood and he has succeeded in keeping the audience engaged in every frame.

Moin Khan who is playing the ‘Liftboy’ has brilliantly essayed his role. Sagar Kale whom we must have seen doing some small roles in films and TVs perfectly portrays a middle class father.

Nyla Masood who plays Maureen D’Souza is a non-actor yet she is the best character of the film and you will love her performance.

A film which has less characters but every character has a specialty and they will keep you engaged with their amazing performances.

The film ‘Liftboy’ proves that you don’t need to have big stars or big budget to make a great film.

Overall a great movie with a realistic plot. Surely worth watching.
