Priti P (kr) wrote: 'Fukrey' is Delhi slang for people with boastful mouth but falling short in action when required. It can also mean idle and/or street smart people who waste time doing nothing. 'Vella' and 'Lukha' are another nearby slangs used for such people (courtesy: Mumbaikars).The movie is a well made comedy with apt name and casting and is pleasant to watch. Direction and acting are also good. It deals with the money requirement of idle duds (read ultra weak students) to gain shortcut into college by buying question paper(s). Their sole motivation for college admission is proximity to girl(s)). To facilitate this, they go to the extreme length of borrowing money from a local mistress of vices and in the process suffer heavily.In the movie, the kind of euphoria the protagonists attach to the simple act of getting admission or entry into college is something new and worth watching. As mentioned earlier, all characters fit the bill and have performed well. But the icing on the cake is the debutant Varun Sharma who has played the role of gawky, child like and puberty-excited 'Chucha' to the T. His acting is fresh, original and consistent. With him on the screen, you are well assured of genuine laughter. This is a great achievement for a debutant. Pulkit seems to be acting 'the hero' of the movie, wherein in reality no such character exists. Only if that misconception was erased from his performance, the bar of the movie would have raised a few notches higher. Nevertheless his performance is very controlled as compared to his first and preceding movie 'Bittoo Boss'. Ali has done justice to his melancholic and introvert character and has refrained from using unnecessary nuances in his acting. Richa's ease of use of expletives is something new on Indian screen. Hats off to her to mumble such dialogues with such natural ease. But unlike other characters, somewhere her character is not well defined. It ranges from being a local (read street) mistress to that of an anti social boss! Navjot is good in poker faced comedy.It is surprising to witness such well woven comedy from Mrigdeep whose last directorial venture was 'Teen Thay Bhai' which was a depressing comedy in spite of the presence of good actors (Om Puri, Shreyas Talpade) in the movie!

Al S (kr) wrote: An intense, hard-hitting, skull-bashing old-school fight flick that has attitude and heart. A blood-pumping and heart-pounding action-packed thrill-ride. It's loaded with enough suspense and brutal action to keep you satisfied. A tough, stylish, riveting and exciting movie. It's Get Carter meets Fight Club with soccer hooligans and martial artist. It has some tough meaty characters and a solid story that has the look of gritty modern British drama and the feel of 80's vendetta action movie. Scott Adkins gives a tremendous and strong performance. Adkins once again is a knockout, he rules the screen with his movie star charisma, charm and fantastic athletic abilities.

This isn't an outstanding movie, but I found it a good way to spend the time. And the female lead as well as the daughter were very great to watch.

Maineutral R (gb) wrote: I realized I'm not a Mothra fan. I can't care about a space-moth that uses Cosmic twins as partners. Godzilla vs Mothra is just an "out-there" monster movie with nothing great in particular, nothing attaching or exhilarating. The execution feels tired and it doesn't feel good for the most. We have monster battles, yes, but there's got to be something in between at least. I liked the battle of Godzilla and Battra in the sea, that was huge fun spectacle, but the final battle feels stale. It's because both Mothra and Battra don't have much movement. They stay in the same position and throw things, and that's pretty much it. These things can't hold against a moving and living Godzilla. These problems also happened in Mothra vs Godzilla from the Showa era in the 60's. Mothra isn't the monster for fighting, at least not against a monster like Godzilla. Mothra just isn't my kind of monster; it takes some charm away because they have to put some ridiculous stuff, even for Godzilla standards. I felt Godzilla was just a supporting role here, the movie is mostly centered in Mothra, and seeing how I think it isn't a great monster, then I was, for the most part, indifferent to the movie. It's not awful, but Mothra can't hold a Godzilla movie. This is a middling entry in the series. It gets some spots right, but the overall outcome is unsatisfying. I wonder where the effort of Godzilla vs Biollante was left; probably in the cutting room. I hope the next one is better, or else this will mark the second time Godzilla falls into years of depressingly decaying movies.
