Filming of Life of Paan Singh is really interesting, From Starting to ending movie keeps viewer bounded with it. The Area Where Paan Singh worked as Bandit is real and shooted in real places instead of green screen, portrayal of Indian Villages in 1950s is very realistic, Director Tigmanshu Has really done an appreciable job.
The story itself was a gripping watch, primarily because I’m a massive fan of the franchise and have a bond with these two characters that has transcended the better part of a decade. Chaves intelligently taps into that affinity with Lorraine and Ed, giving the latter an extra layer of foreboding via a heart attack at the very beginning. This means the audience are acutely aware of his potentially impending danger, every single time he gets above a brisk walk, and believe me, he does so much more than that, just trying to protect his love of thirty years.
Thuppakki’s running time of 2 hours and 45 minutes didn’t bother me as I enjoyed the story and the thrill of the action sequences. My only gripe was the RomCom element of the film but it’s a slight nitpick and nothing more. Thalapathy Vijay has a great supporting cast and the lead shows again his range in acting is top notch. Director A.R. Murugadoss (Kaththi and Sarkar) once again delivers a frenetic action packed thriller with some twists on the journey.
I get the sense that Vince Gilligan himself was annoyed by the abrupt nature of Pinkman’s ending. I mean why else would he go out his way to make a two hour, direct continuation of the finale if not to right a perceived wrong?
This Joker seemed to be more sad than scary. He wasn’t the villain I had seen in movies outside of this one. It seemed as if he could just get good treatment or keep his medication coming he would have just lived out a very sad life. Not a very terrifying Joker at all.
Ad Astra is a film with lofty aspirations, but with soul and spectacle too unevenly intertwined, it succeeds in neither widening the eyes of the audience or engaging the brain either.
