Tera Intezaar movie review: Not what we expected after the ‘intezaar’
We were inside a lavish castle, stealing some exquisite paintings. Suddenly, the paintings hung back at their places automatically and springs of water started coming out of the walls. The room suddenly turned into a sea. we somehow reached the shore and ran fanatically. we think there’s a Ghost behind me. Hungry and thirsty, we reached a garden and saw a mango tree. We snatched a ripe mango, but the mango slipped from our hands and we saw the invisible ghost biting on it.
Probably because we were hungry, we realised this wasn’t a bad dream. This was happening. Courtesy, ‘Tera Intezaar’.
Now, the question is, who’s waiting for whom? Sunny Leone aka Raunak, an art gallery owner can’t find her painter beau Veer (Arbaaz Khan). Ask me how they met. Veer, with much love, painted his dream girl which turned out to be looking just like Raunak. The next morning, he happens to meet her on the street. Hmm.
Other side of the story. Four bad people (of whom, Aarya Babbar is one) are trying to steal Veer’s paintings, which are “lajawab” and “kya baat hai“. The usual gatecrashing happens and I discover Arbaaz is a ghost. He’s invisible. So is his little-existing acting career. What’s the point?
Whatsoever, Sunny crosses path with Sudha Chandran, a woman who can smell and perform supernatural activities. In between, we only see a lot of Arbaaz’s painfully bright lemon yellow shirt and matching goggles, Sunny’s “Do you really love me?” And her Gujarati jeeju Hasmukh Bhai who reaches airport and screams ‘Chalo Jaldi!‘, as if it’s a Mumbai BEST bus and not an Airbus.
The ghost has killed all the villains but Sunny doesn’t yet know that her man isn’t alive. Wait, he’s! DOUBLE ROLE ALERT!
’Tera Intezaar’ is a gold mine of memes, considering the animated expressions both actors have delivered effortlessly. We’re so sorry we couldn’t be empathetic. We’re either too old, or have been single for way too long. However, we forgot to tell you that Arbaaz’s spirit is blue in colour and travels like a ball of light.
Just when we’ve survived so much, we’re expected to judge this film, Arbaaz and Sunny. Why would they do what they did? Why would Rajeev Walia do what he did? Why would our Boss do what she did, either? Most importantly, ‘Abhagi Piya Ki’ Sunny Leone? Huh?
Also, do ghosts like mango?
'High Jack' Movie Review: This TRIPPY flight journey is bound to tickle your funnybones!

Bollywood Bubble Rating: 3
As I sit to watch Akarsh Khurana and Sumee Vyas’ second venture, In my head I was already ready for a laughter ride. The duo had earlier entertained the masses with The Viral Fever’s web series ‘Tripling’ . The ones who had their eyes hooked on-to the director – actor’s previous work can expect more from this comedy-drama. If you are the one who enjoys pun-intended and non-veg jokes, then it is a go-to movie.
The light heart serious-comedy starts off with our lit DJ Rakesh (Sumeet Vyas). The actor’s comic timing and screen space was one thing that left me and everyone amazed in the theater. After this movie, I admit being a fan of the actor (not die hard). After the LIT start, the movie inches towards the introduction of Udaan Airlines and the terrible state of its employees, who wish to get their unpaid dues. A revengeful yet kind-hearted staff of the airlines plan to HIGH-JACK their own flight.
The movie’s plot revolves around DJ Rakesh (Sumeet Vyas), his creepy co-passengers and the High Jackers. Apart from Sumeet, characters of Kumud Mishra and Taaruk Raina were the highlight of this stoner-comedy. Director Akarsh Khurana has done justice to every character of his film.
Speaking about the music, you will feel as if you were actually in a RAVE party. Akarsh has presented a serious issue in a funny and witty way! Well, there were few offs in the movie viz no background score in some scenes and the lack of songs. Overall, the movie is a perfect pick for a lazy weekend.
This flight from Goa to Delhi is bound to tickle your funnybones. To know, if DJ Rakesh’ dream to be popular is fulfilled and whether the employees of Udaan airlines succeed in HIGH Jacking, you need to get out of your couch and head to the nearest cinema.
If asked to sum up the movie in one sentence, it will definitely be- Get ready to board a TRIPPY flight from Goa to Delhi!

'Raazi' Review: Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal's film is a must watch
Set in the early 1970s just before the India-Pakistan war and inspired from real events, ‘Raazi’ is the tale of a Kashmiri girl, Sehmat Khan (Alia Bhatt) whose life changes after she gets to know her dying father’s last wish. As a dutiful daughter, she can do little but surrender to his passion and patriotism and follow the path he has so planned for her.
So from an ordinary, college-going girl, she is trained by an Indian intelligence agent Khalid Mir (Jaideep Ahlawat) to become a deadly spy. She is then married off to Iqbal Syed (Vicky Kaushal), the son of the well-connected Pakistani Brigadier Parvez Syed (Shishir Sharma) and her mission is to regularly pass information to the Indian intelligence.
How Sehmat survives her stint in Pakistan, forms the crux of the tale.
With the perfect infusion of sentiments in a gripping plot, the story touches one’s heart especially because of Alia Bhatt’s power-packed performance. In an author-backed role, she is natural and undoubtedly captures your heart with her restrained and mature act.
Vicky Kaushal as Iqbal Syed has little to do on screen. But, within the given screen-time he shines brilliantly, especially at the end when he realizes that his marriage was just a farce and he earnestly asks Sehmat, if the moments which they spent together were for real?
Among the supporting cast; Rajit Kapur as Sehmat’s father Hidayat Khan, Shishir Sharma as Iqbal’s father Brigadier Parvez Syed, Soni Razdaan as Sehmat’s mother are all effective and effortless.
The only odd one out was Arif Zakaria, portraying Abdul, the family help of the Syeds. With his standoffish get-up and mysterious demeanor, he stood out like a sore thumb and seemed cliched.
Also, Sanjay Suri’s guest appearance is a clever ploy by the director to stamp a loaded statement.
With excellent production values, Jay I. Patel’s cinematography captures the performances and the era to perfection. Shankar- Ehsaan-Loy’s music elevates the viewing experiences.
Overall, Raazi offers a subtle dose of patriotism that makes you root for the film as it brings to life the story of the unsung Heroine of the India-Pakistan war.
