On sexploitation in society!

Rating- *** 3 stars

Though this dated film was made way back thirteen years ago, to be precise in 2008, the situation does not seem to have improved over the years in any way, as far as exploitation of women (read exploitation) is concerned today.” Saancha” is a conscious effort to present the naked truth of human emotions in today’s progressive, cultured and civilized society.

Every parent prays to God that they be blessed with an intelligent and physically powerful male child and if it is a female child, the parents prefer to have a child with divine beauty, though, in hindsight, this very benevolence of God becomes an inconceivable curse for some parent. The hackneyed plot revolves around a haggard woman, Chanda (Vaishnavi), who works at a rustic brick kiln with her sick husband Hariya (Raghubir Yadav) to meet the daily needs of her household consisting of her herself, her husband and their only daughter Chakori (Archanna Gupta).

Worried that her daughter should not fall prey to the lustful eyes of her boss the brick contractor Shambhu (Mukesh Tiwari), Chanda religiously rubs the kiln-ash every day over her daughter’s ever-glowing skin for the past sixteen years in order to protect her honour. Unfortunately due to the sickness of her husband she had borrowed money from the brick contractor, and unwillingly enrols herself amongst those underprivileged & helpless women who undergo sexploitation in return for his monitory favour whenever he wishes so.

Unfortunately for Chanda, one day when it pours heavily, Shambhu’s eyes glimmer when he sees the attractive Chakori whose beauty was remaining hidden under the layers of murky ash for years and sensing his wicked intent, Chanda decides to safeguard her daughter’s honour by ageing to marry her off to an aged 55 yrs old, pervert old Ramkhilavan (Anupam Kher) who perceives his wife as nothing but a mere commodity to fulfil his sexual desires but is dismayed on his first night, to discover that his young wife knows nothing about the sexual act. The old man realizes his cardinal sin and surrenders before her sacred innocence and sets her free by marrying her off to his teenage son-like assistant in his cycle shop and walking away.

While the entire film is borne by Vaishnavi who renders a sterling performance as the suffering Chanda, Raghubir Yadav also gives her solid support as her husband Hariya. Mukesh Tiwari is good as usual while Anupam Kher scores as the good-hearted old pervert. Archanna Gupta looks quite innocent and fits the part like T as Chakori. While Sudha Chandran in a brief special appearance disappears even before you blink for a second, Vijay Raaz has been wasted with a half baked character that lacks logic.

On the whole, though ‘Saancha The Mould’ has been made with honest intentions, the film is at times tacky and dated and lacks production values and what’s more, is as old as the hills with the predictable unfolding of the plot

Cuttputlli Review - Cuttputlli is one of the best film made in recent times

Akshay Kumar, Rakul Preet Singh, Sargun Mehta, Chandrachur Singh, Gurpreet Gugghi, Sujith Shankar and Hrishita Bhatt.
Rating: 4 Star
Backed by Pooja Entertainment, the new-age thriller is helmed by Ranjt Tewari and features Akshay Kumar, Rakul Preet Singh, Sargun Mehta and Chandrachur Singh and Gurpreet Gugghi in lead roles.
Once quiet and calm town of Kasauli turns into war-zone with triple homicide, and cops are racing against time to end the act of crime by this serial killer. With no clue or motive for homicide, Akshay Kumar as Arjan Sethi, the local investigative cop from Kasauli hunts down a psychopath killer, who is killing innocent school girls with his conviction and intelligence,
The film offers a fast-paced and thrilling narrative, not giving much of the breathing space to divulge from the core conflict. Though the film is an adaptation of a South classic, but the Hindi remake is much more subtle and poignant.

Must Read Bollywood Actresses Who Went Topless On Movie Posters

SI Arjan Sethi aka Akshay Kumar, gives a great performance. He is so controlled and driven in this film, he took the simple role of a cop which has been type casted for decades, and deconstructs it, and recreate a powerful and intelligent investigator, which is probably the most commendable thing.
Rakul Preet Singh proves once again that she is the most dependable actress for subtle and nuanced skills. She keeps her character alive with superlative performance.
Television star Sargun Mehta is a revelation; she just hits the ball out of the park without any effort and makes her presence felt in her debut movie.
Actor Sujith Shankar, Chandrachur Singh, Hrishita Bhatt and Gurpreet Ghuggi are seasoned actors and doesn’t deliver any false note in their performances.
Though gruesome and disturbing at times, for cinematic reasons, Cuttputlli offers a smart and racy narrative, with some of the most outstanding performances by leading actors. The movie doesn’t let you down and hence it is a must watch film for all cinema lovers.

Netflix’s Sweet Tooth Review – Bollywood Galiyara

Netflix's Sweet Tooth Review

On 23 July 2020, and old movie Footfairy that was originally released in 2020 got released, and Footfairy, starring Gulshan Devaiah, Sagarika Ghatge and Kunaal Roy Kapur, is an suspence crime thriller, exploring obsession-induced crimes and their aftermath.

From time to time, bollywood seeks unconventional themes, but often presents a powerful story that has been hurt by bland packaging. But sometimes the film insists on an untaken path. Foot fairy is exactly that. It brings us a serial killer thriller who delves into the world of horrific crime and its aftermath. The desire for murder and violence is not the only thing that Boliwood has given us abundantly with his love for dark and twisted stories. Footfairy takes the unexplored path of portraying ridiculous fetishes and their associated attachments, addictions, and enthusiasts.

Kanishuk Varma made an outstanding directorial debut in the film. Footfairy turned out to be dark, quirky and immersive. The story takes place in Mumbai, where a mysterious serial murder takes place. Gulshan Devaiah plays Vivaan Dehmukh, Deputy Director of the CBI. It is his responsibility to lead the investigation to catch the criminal. Viewers typically experience exciting cat and mouse hunting in this sub-genre. This is where the foot fairy is differentiated and superior. It shows the impact of crime or its lack on systems, cities, and their people.

Serial killer targets young women at various stations in the darkness of the night and throws their bodies into her suitcases Fetish comes here. Psychopaths cut off the victim’s legs as a souvenir. And Mumbai generally pays attention to violent crimes, about that day, but as always, almost at night. Serial killers appear in casual conversations, the crime scene becomes a joke (emphasizing the “semen tsunami”), and even the serial killer’s foot fetish can be mischievously portrayed. But through all of this, Footfairy never drags you, it keeps you hooked.

Sagarika Ghatge plays her role as well as the pediatrician Devika, who has a romantic relationship with Gulshan’s Vivaan. She is confident and attractive to her scene. Kunaal Roy Kapur performs well with limited screen times. The actor, known for his comedy characters, creates an uneasy atmosphere in his negative role as cafe owner Joshua. The support cast also adds weight to the foot fairy.

However, it is Gulshan Devaiah who owns his character completely. He lives, breathes, talks, and moves like a law enforcement officer. As the story progresses and crimes become more daring and frequent, Gulshan seamlessly transitions between vivan-like intense emotions. First casually passionate about the case, then aggressive in his obsession with serial killers, he succumbs to the demands of the CBI’s detective work. He suffers from anxiety as the difficulties of his professional life spill over into his personal life.
Footfairy is surprisingly fast. The story changes as soon as you try to break the identity of a serial killer. One is put in the dark throughout the movie until the final scene. Still, it’s not the epic revelation that satisfies the audience, but the director’s commentary through the film. How are the hearts of countless crimes and criminals beyond most understanding that people are fortunately unaware of until the tragedy becomes personal. Also, cities like Mumbai never stop moving. It’s not in their nature to do so.

Footfairy’s background score is remarkable and complements the vibe of the crime thriller. While the film is engrossing, we felt the narrative could have been developed and given another layer. It’s always interesting to watch how crimes affect people on both ends of the spectrum the culprit and the cop. The director could have used more chills and a little more grunge. The movie is a bit short here. Nevertheless, the suspense is gripping, the performance is excellent and the movie is highly recommended

Who is the killer in Footfairy movie

That might be the question in your mid too, and at the end everyone is expected to reveal the name of real killer, however, movie ends without revealing the name of killer. Well, one thing is for sute that this movie will comeup with a part 2 as well. After bidding goodbye to Harsh, Vivaan goes to the same murder location, where a kid reveals to him that someone else had visited there too and had told him about the red suitcase which he had kept there years ago. When asked about where the unidentified person headed towards, the kid points at the railway tracks with the camera zooming forward with an open ending. Along with highlighting the serial killer’s vague fetish, Footfairy also showcases the CBI officer’s obsession with tracking down the culprit.
