Nazm Nazm from Bareilly Ki Barfi is out now!

Kriti Sanon and Ayushmann Khurrana are currently awaiting the release of their upcoming movie Bareilly Ki Barfi, that is scheduled to release on the 18th of August.

The song Sweety Tera Drama from the movie was out not a few days ago and the producers of the movie have another treat for us. Earlier today they released another one of their songs from the movie called Nazm Nazm. Unlike the first song, this song is not an upbeat Bollywood number but a romantic song that brings out the relationship of the main characters.

The song showcases how the couple’s relationship evolves over time and how they get closer by the day. While not a dance number, the song is a perfect sound track for someone looking to sooth themselves with some slow music and meaningful lyrics.

Check it out here.

The song and it actors will make you fall in love with the song but also leave you confused about the story line. While the trailer spoke about Kriti’s character seeking to meet the author of her favourite book, played by Rajkummar Rao, and Ayushmann's character trying to make sure she doesn't fall for the author, the song showcases a love story between the main leads.

All we can do now is await the release date to find out how the story unfolds.

Sweety Tera Drama from Bareilly Ki Barfi is the new dance anthem

Post her amazing performance in the movie Raabta, Kriti Sanon is now all set to get on screen with her next movie Bareilly Ki Barfi. We got a glimpse of her character through the trailer that was out recently, and the producers have decided to treat us to a song today.

A few hours ago, the song Sweety Tera Drama was released.

Just like the movie, the song is a fun energetic song, that brings out the characters and the way they are portrayed in the movie. With fun beats and music, the song is a dance number that is sure to make you move your feet on the dance floor.

The movie is an Indian Comedy Drama movie, that is directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and is scheduled to release of the 18th of August. The movie also features actors Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana.

Are you excited to watch Kriti in her all new character? 

A story of reincarnation with adolescent simplicity, puppy love & immature supervision thrown in.

Two men were in love with the same girl, in both lives, today and 800 years back. Separated by a lifetime, same things happen to them and they must meet the same end if one of them does not muster courage to alter it.

When Shiv and Saira meet in Budapest, they instantly connect. They spend 2 days and one night together. Just when we thought they were made for each other Saira asks him to get out of the house as she already has a boyfriend! She says, we hardly know each other while she had casually slept with him last night. It became obvious that the film is made to appeal to the young college going crowd that believes in ‘no strings being attached’.  There are young, good looking actors, lovely clothes, great European locations and beautifully shot landscapes with a bit of fun and romance thrown in here.

Sushant Singh Rajput as an actor has a quality that appeals to most people of all ages. In this film he exudes boyish charm, carries a romantic aura, and a vulnerability that was very  well capitalized on by film M S Dhoni. These qualities of his, work very well for this film as most of the first half is spent convincing the viewer how  adorable is the boy and girl on that celluloid. Producer turned director Dinesh Vijan probably forgot that the couple in the lead here is not Shahrukh Khan and Kajol who could carry the entire first half on their romantic histrionics. Actor Jim Sarbh makes an entry much to our relief just before the interval, cutting short the monotony of  this romance.

Jim Sarbh has been  getting rave reviews ever since he played a terrorist in film Neerja. In this film, as Zakir merchant aka Zac, he offers layered nuances of performance, uses his body language effectively to put across the character of a psychic lover who would kill to win. But in both his lives, his Hindi dialogues with a heavy American accent took away a lot of mystique from his character. Also the character was so dismally written that Zac becomes laughing stock in most parts while he had the potential to scorch the screen like in Neerja.  

I could draw parallel between Raabta and Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra’s Mirzya as the character of Sahiba is common to both and so is Saahiba’s confused love. The scenes shot by cinematographer Martin Priess  in the beautiful island for the past life track are breathtaking, especially the fight scenes between the tribe Murarka’s head Jilaan played by Sushant singh Rajput, Kriti and Sarbh. But that is not enough to keep the interest in the film. Also the character of the oldest man in the tribe played by Raj Kumar Rao was a bewildering spectacle but could have been used more effectively in the storyline. He would mostly talk in rhyme, in an accent that to me sounded Awadhi – Muraka kabhi na haara, usey dhokhey ne maara.

The film boasts of good looking actors, great wardrobe, lovely locations, you can’t take your eyes off the screen but it’s difficult to be emotionally invested in the characters. We never cared when the characters laughed or cried. The film constantly changes its temperament. In the middle of a crisis,  the characters were cracking jokes.  

Raabta is somewhere between a thriller and a romance and tries to be a little of everything. I was mostly glued to its cinematography and styling. Rest all seemed less fascinating.
