1. Arya (2004)
151 min | Action, Drama, Romance
An innocent young man displays his true love by bringing his lover and best friend together.
Has originality, good rhythm, and manages to keep the viewers' interest (at least it managed to keep mine). It has some cheaper moments but on the whole okay pop-corn entertainment.
2. Arya 2 (2009)
Not Rated | 155 min | Action, Drama, Thriller
A psychotic willing to sacrifice anything for friendship transforms himself for the sake of his best friend who's not really fond of him.
Different story, but same result as Arya 1, I could copy/paste my short review of the previous film ^_^
3. Magadheera (2009)
Not Rated | 147 min | Action, Drama, Fantasy
A bike stuntman recalls his previous life as a warrior, and pursues his love's reincarnation. A sinister figure from their shared past threatens to separate them forever.
The first scene is beautiful. Then the first 15 minutes drags along and bring nothing more than very cheap "entertainment". Fortunately soon the movie really starts, and the rhythm won't decline again.
Beautiful (and rather unusual) story; the 17th century scenes have a gorgeous cinematography/costumes/sets, while the contemporary scenes have suspense and humour. The film is also supported by a good trio of actors. The climax was really well done in my opinion, or rather the climaxes, since you have one for each period involved.
A very peculiar atmosphere envelops this film. I felt like you don't just watch this movie, you're also carried away by it. Not at all a flawless movie, but still a very different, good watch.
4. Eega (2012)
Not Rated | 145 min | Action, Comedy, Fantasy
A murdered man is reincarnated as a housefly and seeks to avenge his death.
Eega is a mind-blowing film that will make you laugh, cry, and stare in amazement in front of so much inventivity. The direction is superb, and the visuals very well done. The story is touching, creative and full of suspense and the actors do it honour. The most original film I've seen in ages.
5. Mirchi (2013)
Not Rated | 155 min | Action, Drama
A man returns to his country in order, ostensibly, to reform his girlfriend's violent family, but he seems to have a strange connection and a rather dark past.
Good entertainer. A feel good plot with a nice twist and decent performances, and cool music.
A few useless melodramatic scenes, and a bad first scene but the rest constitutes a fun watch.
6. Naayak (2013)
Not Rated | 153 min | Action
A young man and his lookalike team up to fight injustice and settle their personal scores with the evildoers.
Apparently this movie had rather good professional reviews. I don't know what these reviewers smoke, because even though I'm totally open to mass entertainers and masala films, hell no this isn't a good film.
The fight scenes want to be stylish but come across as cheap. No fluidity in the movements and far fetched action.
The musical numbers have stunning locations underused and spoiled by rather unaesthetical choreographies (Kajal Agarwal's steps had no interest at all) and flat direction.
The story has some interest that it totally loses in the last 45 minutes. The humour is far from hilarious. Best point of the film is the focus on problems of Indian society (poverty, exploitation of workers and orphans, mafia...). But this represents just a small part of the screenplay. Most of the film remains annoying.
7. Swamy Ra Ra (2013)
120 min | Crime
A small time crook faces a big time challenge: he must fight to retrieve a priceless article and win the heart of his love.
A good small budget film mixing a story of crime/theft and humour.
Well played, large array of interesting characters, tight screenplay... there is action, humour and a bit of romance but this is in no way masala and it avoids all the stereotypes regularly found in mass entertainers.
The soundtrack is GREAT and very original. The direction is modern and lively. Definitely a good watch.
8. Sahasam (2013)
Not Rated | 150 min | Action, Adventure
Gautham Varma, an A.T.M security guard, goes on a treasure hunt for the diamonds hidden by his grandfather in the Hinglaj temple during the time of the India - Pakistan partition.
Sahasam is a good adventure movie, a treasure hunt leading an unlucky man and a devout woman into a tribal pakistani region. It has everything an adventure film should have (old temples, traps, treasure, mystery...) plus the introduction (first half hour) of the protagonist was very well done/written. It's a meaty character. The actors are good - Tapsee's role is rather limited but she makes the best of it and Gopichand offers an engaging protrayal.
9. Orange (2010)
162 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A man, who doesn't believe that love can last a lifetime, pursues an exuberant romantic, but their clashing ideologies keep them apart.
Somewhere in this film, buried under all the superfluous, there is a good story. An unusual rom com about how love doesn't necessarily lasts. There are some really nice scenes and dialogues. Ram Charan and Genelia D'Souza are fine. But. There is also a lot of uninteresting or repetitive scenes (the film should have been shorter) and a number of rather cheap or over the top scenes (the fight with graffiti artists, the first minutes of Genelia's character etc)... That's too bad because some parts were nicely done, like the "paint fight" part inside the larger fight scene for instance, or when Genelia is seen through Ram Charan's camera.
Overall not a terrible watch but a dispensable one.
