THE GHAZI ATTACK - Ignoring the filmy touches, it largely remains a rare and delightful focused war movie featuring a talented cast ensemble that deserves to be given a chance for sure. (Review by Bobby Sing).

This Friday's One Line Reviews from BTC for your weekend plans - By Bobby Sing.

JOLLY LLB 2 - The second half turns it into a fairly entertaining above average film taking too many creative liberties, crossing the limits of respect and logic in its court room sequences. (Review By Bobby Sing).

KUNG FU YOGA (English/Hindi) - Just fast paced action, eye-catching visuals, stunning girls, a little fun and no yoga results in a hugely disappointing film. (Review by Bobby Sing).

KHAIDI NO. 150 (Telugu) - A power-packed comeback film from the BOSS, bringing forward three socially relevant issues along with the typical entertaining format of a double role. (Review by Bobby Sing).

QATL (1986) took it all from IN BROAD DAYLIGHT (TV Film/1971), but the two still have their own distinctive culminations deserving an equal applause. - A revealing overview by Bobby Sing..

KAABIL - Watch it just for the impressive blind acts and an emotionally likeable first hour, as you already know about the rest, unexpectedly conceived in a twist-less filmy manner. (Review by Bobby Sing).

RAEES - Shockingly strictly routine with the only enjoyable merit being the Shah Rukh-Nawaz clash. (Review By Bobby Sing).

Sully

Based on the miraculous event witnessed by America on a cold morning of January 2009, when a US Airways flight had to make an emergency landing on the Hudson River instead of the nearest New York airport, SULLY is one of those rare exceptional films which makes you rethink about life and the unseen force behind it we preferably love to name and remember as THE GOD.
Moving into the must watch list of BTC for its excellence achieved, SULLY is realistically executed and has a very subtle, effective but ‘no overly dramatized’ presentation with no intention of sensationalizing the scary event for the obvious reasons. Becoming a perfect example of a film that strictly remains focused on the subject recreating the incident in a horrifying yet sensitive manner (with an excellent cinematography and sound) it takes you into the minds of its two main protagonists who were actually responsible for all those crucial decisions made in the nick of time, particularly the Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger played by Tom Hanks.     
Though many might find the film not as exciting and explanatory as it ought to be, I would still love to strongly recommend SULLY to the readers for a few of my own reasons that you might not find in any of the film’s review or the usual write-ups.
First of all SULLY simply amazes me as a near-to-perfect project conceived and visualized by an extremely gifted creator living his eighth decade of life, when most of the human faculties are normally not at their best, making way for many physical and mental complexities moving towards the final destination. Directed by the 86 years old maverick CLINT EASTWOOD with an incredible vision, well-supported by his lead actor TOM HANKS of 60 with an splendid ease, SULLY reminded me of our own DEV ANAND, who though didn’t churn out any quality films at all (since the 80s), but still kept working right till the last day of his life at the age of 89 as desired.
Pointing towards probably the most precious gift for a person from the humble existence, Eastwood sets a fine example with his SULLY, making us realize that such gems are even possible at the age of 86.
Secondly, the film makes you recall a very popular saying in India as “Jaako Raakhey Saaiyan, Maar Sakey Na Koye” – meaning “If that Supreme Power has decided to save a soul, then nothing in this universe can cause it any harm (not even a plane crash)”. And what better example can be there to prove this truthful saying. A plane hits into a big flock of geese only 3 minutes post its take-off resulting in failure of both the engines, an emergency landing needs to be made anywhere around with no time to reach the nearest airport, the pilot decides to make it land on the Hudson river in an extremely cold weather, the whole crash happens in just a few minutes and yet not even a single casualty is there with all the 155 people on board rescued well in time by the ground forces coming for an immediate help.
Now what better example can be given to prove the Indian saying?
Thirdly, this one incident makes it pretty clear to the entire world led by the amazing technical advancements, that any kind of man-made machine CANNOT be compared to a human mind at all, especially in those life threatening decisive moments of crises when some immediate decisions need to be made within a few seconds without caring about what’s actually written in the prescribed manuals by the experts.
The film and its real-life case clearly proves the supremacy of a human mind over the machine quite evidently.
Lastly but most importantly, SULLY reminds us about a brutally alarming truth that along with these amazingly helpful developments enhancing our living standards, we certainly have lost one important quality of life and that’s the ability of TRUSTING the other, without any hidden doubts.
The fact is boldly visible in the film when despite the unbelievable miraculous landing on a river saving each and every life on the plane by its two pilots, they are still not trusted by the authorities and made to face an insulting trial investigating the actual happenings of the crash instead of honouring them for the same.
Perhaps the whole world has changed post the 9/11 and we have lost the ability to ‘Trust’ valuing ‘Profit and Loss’ a lot more than the real valuable things.
Anyway moving over the sad truth, do watch SULLY at the earliest as the film does have the power to reinstate your faith in both GOD and CINEMA together asking for a standing ovation. Among the best scenes of the film is the one where a female hotel manager is called in to take care of the two Captains staying in the hotel. And seeing Captain Sully, she hurriedly comes forward to hug him with love saying an emotional ‘Thank you’ straight from the heart.
Interestingly the film did remind me of another ‘not-to-be-missed’ classic titled FLIGHT (2012) featuring Danzel Washington as the saviour captain caught in a similar situation. FLIGHT is also included in the ‘Must Watch List’ at the site. So do try to watch both….. if possible.
Directed by Clint Eastwood
Starring : Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart and more.

Budhia Singh Born To Run
Continuing the trend of making films on exceptional sports personalities, this week’s BUDHIA SINGH BORN TO WIN is not a usual bio-pic for a change, since its not about the achievements, but how an amazingly talented young athlete was not allowed to live his dream raising an important national debate. So as a film, this is an important venture as it rightly serves one of the key purposes of CINEMA by enlightening a big number of unaware citizens of the country about a gifted boy, who has already suffered a lot due to the petty politics played by the visionless bureaucrats of his state and their questionable carelessness.
Set in the divine city of Puri in Bhubaneswar (Orissa/Odisha), the film introduces you to a 4 years old kid Budhia, who first gets sold off to a local by his poor helpless mother, but luckily gets rescued by a social worker-judo trainer Biranchi Das (played by Manoj Bajpai), who incidentally notices an exceptional ‘god-gifted running’ talent in him while giving a punishment. As a coach Das begins training the child for big marathon events and then makes him run a 65 km distance between Bhubaneshwar and Puri in about seven hours without water, turning him into ‘The Pride of the State’ and ‘A Talk of the Nation’ overnight.
An account of all real life events in Orissa around the year 2006, the film later showcases how the government authorities took an action against the allegedly forced display of talent exploiting the small kid and the Child Welfare Board’s committee also filing a case against his coach Biranchi Das for the same. Heading towards a shocking climax, the film further reveals how it all ended with a suspiciously solved murder and a ban on Budhia’s running which is still continuing till date affecting his rare gifted talent and a possible great career becoming a victim of our sick bureaucracy.
Without revealing the exact sequences, assuming that a majority of young viewers are not aware of this unbelievable ‘national star’ of the last decade, I would like to recommend BUDHIA SINGH as a well-made film, which though progresses in a form of docu-drama, yet is not any documentary film at all, remaining true to its subject as required.
Written and directed by debutant Soumendra Padhi, the film has been penned and executed with utmost simplicity without bowing down to any unnecessary melodrama or forced nationalism usually found in such films. Despite following a highly realistic approach the narration never slows down even for a while, once it beings talking about the actual marathon event post the initial 20 minutes of a fine build-up. Hence clearing the obvious doubts of a big section of viewers, BUDHIA SINGH doesn’t deserve to be considered and ignored as any realistic art movie unable to engage the viewers.  
Technically, though the music yet again remains the weakest part, it’s the worth noticing cinematography, a crisp editing and the well-composed background score that constantly keeps enhancing the story progression, especially in the brilliantly conceived marathon sequences and the second half.
Looking at it from a different angle, BUDHIA SINGH might be predictable to the viewers who are well aware of the real life story behind this ‘wonder child’ becoming an unfortunate target of our sick system and politics. But for the rest this is sure going to be a shocking eye-opener film revealing the highly sensitive and heartbreaking truth of the debatable struggle faced by an immensely gifted child without any fault of his own.
Also as a film BUDHIA SINGH largely works because of its unthinkable concept and incredible performances by Mayur Patole as the kid Budhia, Manoj Bajpai as the coach Biranchi, Shruti Marathe as Biranchi’s wife and the lovable kids in their orphan house/judo school remaining completely natural in their small roles adding a lot to the film’s overall impact.
It’s certainly not easy to work with young kids below 7-8 and make them act. However what Soumendra does with Mayur Patole simply takes the film to another level reminding you of two valuable projects namely TAARE ZAMEEN PAR and STANLEY KA DABBA from the past. Mayur plays it so truthfully that you start believing him only to be the real child going through all the troubling attention a decade back. His performance never seems to be forced or taught throughout and that’s exactly where the film scores the most to be honest.
Manoj Bajpai is once again remarkable as Biranchi and he truly plays it like a real-life coach especially in the marathon sequence running along the boy inspiring him constantly. Together they both steal the heart of the viewers with an appreciable silent support coming from Shruti Marathe. And the same can also be said about the talented supporting cast including Tillotama Shome as Budhia’s real mother and Chhaya Kadam as the scheming minister. 
In short, BUDHIA SINGH – BORN TO WIN is one of those powerful, thought provoking films which force you to think that what was actually RIGHT or WRONG in this one unusual case at that particular point of time?
And if it was right to stop the deliberate exploitation of an innocent 4 years old kid by his talented but eccentric coach, then who is responsible for ruining his bright sports career putting a decade long - still continuing BAN on the display of his gifted talent?
If it was right to stop the boy being forced to try so hard in that tender age then why the authorities didn’t take care of his exceptional talent in the later years, sending him for the much required professional training giving him an opportunity to prove himself yet again?
Who stopped them to lift up the ban and let him run in the small events?
And…..
Who stands responsible for the failure of an athlete who was not even allowed to showcase his skills due to the same old sick bureaucracy and ego-clashes between the political parties.
Anyway at present in the year 2016, after watching BUDHIA SINGH BORN TO WIN, the question arises that,
Can this film in any way help the kid now who is around 14 years of age?
Can the film help him get rid of the ban and feel inspired to run again? and
Can this movie make any difference of any sort whatsoever?
Sadly the answer in my personal opinion is NO and the conclusion gets confirmed when I go through a recently published interview/article about the young boy (post the film’s official release) and I am sure after reading the following informative pointers, you will also feel the same with a heavy heart.
A. At the age of 4-5, Budhia successfully completed the 65 km marathon between Bhubaneshwar and Puri in a few minutes over seven hours, and got a place in LIMCA BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS as the ‘Youngest Marathon Runner in the World’.
B. HBO and BBC funded a 98 minutes documentary on Budhia titled “MARATHON BOY – Running For His Life” in the year 2011 covering his 5 years of life beginning from 2006. The film also got nominated for EMMY AWARD in the category of “Outstanding Investigative Journalism Feature”.
(Check out the site at http://marathonboymovie.com)
C. The Hindi film BUDHIA SINGH BORN TO WIN won the Best Children’s film NATIONAL AWARD in 2016, but with the original title as DURONTO meaning restless or without a stop. (Though the film is a lot more than just a Children’s film)
D. Reportedly there was a Gangster angle behind the murder of coach Biranchi Das which has not been showcased in the award winning Hindi film keeping the complete focus on the ‘wonder kid’.
E. As per the most recent article in DNA, Budhia accepts that he cannot remember anything from those days of amazing marathons and has spent 10 long years living and getting trained in the sports hostel since then. However due to the still ongoing official ban, he is not allowed to run in even the local marathons.
F. When he saw the film, he actually couldn’t recall any of those great moments or various events of life including the big applauses, fan following and surprisingly his coach Biranchi Das too. In fact he asked, “Did all this really happen to me?”
G. Budhia is 14 now but since the authorities think he is still too young to perform in a professional event, the ban is going to be there till he is 18.
And therefore the debate continues about what is right and wrong in this specific context?
Interestingly, BUDHIA SINGH made me recall another related story of an ignored sportsman PAAN SINGH TOMAR and then I also had in mind the 6-7 years old innocent kids participating in the so called ‘Reality Shows’ on many reputed channels.
Perhaps no body there too knows anything about what is right and wrong while interacting with all the kids as per the given scripts. Kids, who might not be even remembering what and which show or who was the judge after 10 years from now…….!
No doubt, we are surely fast losing the sense of judging what’s really right and wrong in this constantly changing era led by the clueless media.
Rating : 3.5 + 0.5 / 5 (with the additional 0.5 for the exceptional kid in the film and selection of this off beat social subject opening the eyes of many.)

Note: The mentioned article by DNA can be read at the following link.)

Would love to include the film in BTC's 'Movies To See Before You Die' List due to its unbelievable, eye-opener subject and execution.)

Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe - Bobby Talks Cinema.comIt’s a bitter truth that even if consider only the Punjabi community in particular, then also a big percentage of the youngsters might not be aware of blessed soul lovingly called BHAGAT PURAN SINGH, who spent his entire life for the physically challenged and the ignored sufferers of our society in his Pingalwara situated in Amritsar (Punjab). So where almost everyone knows about MOTHER TERESA and probably about the respected BABA AMTE too (included in our text books), there only a limited section of Indians are aware of this unique spirited personality who never felt ashamed to even beg for his big family of dependents living a comfortable life only because of him as their GOD-sent messiah.

But before talking about the film, I would like to mention how I got introduced to his Pingalwara in the early 90s as it was indeed an enlightening lesson for me in those energetic years of college studies.
At that time of the decade, we were into doing musical stage shows with a high end sound setup and as a routine ritual during those shows, people willingly used to throw currency notes over the singers and dancers during their individual performances. So by the end of the show, the stage would have several notes lying on it waiting to be picked up by an attendant. And our show-organizer was very particular about this collected money from the stage and had a habit of keeping it separately in a different bag that was honestly not liked by a few in the group willing to share it. So one late night, I finally decided to ask him about it and he said, “I don’t take this extra earned money home and the amount collected from the stage is all sent to Pingalwara in Amritsar”. That was the day I heard about Pingalwara for the first time and then came to know many more things about Bhagat Puran Singh from our organizer who was a big fan/supporter of his and still does the same social practice even today.
Coming back to the film, it’s indeed a worth watching attempt in the biographical genre, intelligently following a non-linear progression that successfully makes an impression in its very first sequence itself. Yes, the prolonged background sequences do take some time to take the story forward and the choice of child artist in the initial 20 minutes could have been much better. Still the film is able to make an instant emotional connect with the viewers before the intermission and then wins you over completely in its second half which has much more power in its depiction when Bhagat Puran Singh grows older walking towards his ultimate salvation in her mother’s arms. And as I have always said, when a film’s second half is stronger than the first then it is bound to become a winner in most of the cases.
Further moving much ahead than being a simple biographical movie, EH JANAM TUMHARE LEKHE actually becomes a must watch, not to be missed gem due to some exceptional, unique features handled brilliantly by the writer, director and the actors together as mentioned below.
A. Though Bhagat Puran Singh was not a born Sikh, the film doesn’t give any mileage to the fact rightly and explains this with a simple few lines dialogues in its second hour without giving it any major emphasis (as it should have been done becoming its biggest merit).
B. It doesn’t talk or propagate about any particular religion thankfully, nor does it purposefully focus on the trust asking for some extra attention from the viewers through any deliberate sequences.
C. The director quite skillfully incorporates two major events of the 20th century, i.e. of 1947 Partition and 1984 Blue Star Operation without any forceful provocation or taking sides. The sequences simply portray what in reality happened with Bhagat Puran Singh in those times and then leaves the decision on to the viewer that whether he did right or not in his personal dilemmas faced.
D. After a long time, a soundtrack becomes the major backbone of a project in Punjabi cinema and EH JANAM TUMHARE LEKHE has many melodious, emotional, meaningfully written and brilliantly rendered tracks led by “Sun Ve Poorna”, a superb “Lori” (Lullaby) heard after a long time, a fun loving kids song and few fabulously composed Shabads that lift up the film beautifully coming at the right time. Here scoring the maximum marks is the Shabad “Kaisi Aarti Hove” by the exceptionally talented Sukhwinder in an unusual but winning composition that has never been tried before in Punjabi Devotional Music. (And I would soon write a detailed write-up about the relationship of this divine AARTI written by Guru Nanak with Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore and World Music at BTC.)
E. Talking about the man who plays the role of Bhagat Puran Singh, one of the most underrated and underutilized talented actors of our times, Pawan Malhotra, I would only like to say, that you will find it tough to find Pawan in the entire film, especially in its second half. In more clear words, Pawan is simply not there but Bhagat Puran Singh is. And that’s the biggest compliment possible for an actor as far as my understanding of acting goes. Pawan completely dissolves himself in the character he is playing and you amazingly have to remind yourself in a repeated mode that here we have an actor playing a role and not Bhagat Puran Singh himself on the screen as it seems. The credit for this unarguably goes to the director Harjit Singh too for giving Pawan those precise instructions and guidance to deliver such a magnificent performance that is sure to be included as one of his best till date without any doubt. In short if music/background score and cinematography is the backbone of the film then Pawan is the life and face of the project lighting up every single scene of his with a sheer brilliance.
Next writing about the immensely blessed soul Bhagat Puran Singh, a few lines cannot justify or explain the enormous amount of social work done by the man in his entire life. Hence I would only like to quote few of his important dialogues in the film that might give you an idea about the visionary person he was, capable of looking deep into the psyche of both the man and the nature together like a highly learned scholar.
In one of the scenes, as he once visits the house of a college Principal for lunch, he notices almost the entire house made of wood unnecessarily. On getting no justification of the act from the Principal, he refuses to eat in that house where the people don’t care about the trees and nature around. And this, he used to teach 3-4 decades back when the world was not even concerned.
Bhagat Puran Singh did not prefer travelling in cars and other local vehicles as he said they were polluting the surroundings much more than the comfort provided. And again he used to talk about the growing pollution and disturbing changes in climate long before the world took it as a serious issue in the 21st century.
In his final decades, Pingalwara became a known place and people used to come from far off places to see the work being done as something rare & unique. Receiving such people only interesting in seeing the place, Bhagat Puran Singh used to say,
“Dont come to Pingalwara just to see....this is not a Zoo.......If you want then come here to do Seva... only Seva (Service)".
For him there was no difference of any religion, caste, colour or region in life, explained in a simple few words expression saying, “Dukhan Di Zaat Nahin Hundi" (Sorrow has no caste or religion).

And that’s exactly what the film teaches you in its two enlightening hours that life isn’t just about any religion, any caste divisions, any clashes or silly ego fights. Life is about sharing whatever you can with the less privileged around as nobody is here to stay permanently. Life is about helping the needy and living harmoniously with the nature taking good care of it too. Life is about awareness with an acceptance that we are here just for a few years only to walk back home to the eternal source after our granted time is over.
The film makes you shed tears at several instances and teaches you these valuable lessons of life with an important mix of a meaningful theme, a fine direction, an outstanding lead performance and some great melodious music. Hence do watch this eye opener biography at the earliest and do yourself a favour.
Rating : It’s a project straight moving into my “Movies To See Before You Die” list for the man, world surely needs to know about, BHAGAT PURAN SINGH of Pingalwara and Pawan Malhotra.

Post Release Note for all :
Looking at the response, its sad to see that just a couple of months back The Sikh Community stormed the theatres to see an animation film CHAAR SAHEBZAADEY due to the RELIGION factor involved in it......!

But they couldn’t find time or willingness to watch this enlightening gem proving that its Religion that sells a lot more than life teaching films in reality.
To say the truth, you displayed a strange contradiction dear Punjabi friends as it is EH JANAM TUMHARE LEKHE that actually talks about the REAL RELIGION to be followed........ living the Guru's teachings practically..... but you sadly missed the bus.

HIS BLESSINGS
