Mr. Mom
For a movie made in 1983, Mr. Mom is quite a progressive movie. Set in the 1980's recession, Michael Keaton plays Jack Butler an automotive engineer who is laid off from his job. Terri Garr plays his wife Caroline a college educated woman with experience in advertising who returns to the workforce to make ends meet. 

The movie shows Jack struggle being a stay at home dad. He is clueless about mundane tasks such as laundry and struggles to multitask. Most often his efforts end up in a disaster. Meanwhile, Caroline thrives in the workplace successfully wooing a difficult client for the company. 

Unfortunately, Caroline struggles with her boss Ron showing an unhealthy interest in her. Similarly, Jack has to fend of Caroline's friend Joan who swiftly moves from helping him with motherly duties to trying to seduce him. Eventually, Caroline quits her job and Jack is rehired as the company is falling apart without him. 

Perhaps the movie does not seem as progressive based on today's times. But in its era, Mr. Mom was a game changer. In the early eighties, the workforce was largely male. Women who worked were typically usually single and/or childless. The stay at home dad was unheard of. Mr. Mom was a game changer in normalizing working moms and stay at home dads. While it still falls prey to many gender stereotypes it also served as a catalyst to break them as well. 

This is by no means a great film. Everything is mediocre at best. But it is a quick breezy view and worth it for an in home movie night.

Sonali cable

This film features cute actress Rhea Chakravborty playing the role of Sonali---a marathi girl from the Mumbai chawls who dares to enter the big bad world of the cable operator business . Now I have seen cable operations owners at close quarters and all of them are guarded by sten gun welding bodyguards . So what is such a cute gal doing in the cut throat cable operator business , where every cable operator tries to encroach on other's territory leading to violence ? Well , like a typical Mumbai maratha gal , Sonali is fiesty and fire spirited , even though she has to look enticing and inviting to the film's audience exposing a bit of flesh in navel showing and cleavage baring and tight figure hugging tops .

Hell , she's even got the right credentials for her spiritedness , for her father is a former goon who boasts of having taken part in every riot that Mumbai has ever had . And he's got a surname fitting for a goon---Tandel . And Sonali Tandel may be only 10 standard pass , but her father has given her all the leeway to do anything she wants , including angling for the boy she loves since childhood . And that is Raghu , played by Ali Fazal . He is the local politician's ( played by Smita Jaykar ) son and has a major stake in Sonali's cable operator business . His mother cannot control his love for Sonali , and he can't bear to see his mom smoking cigarettes . Mom returns the favour by calling Sonali her daughter and therefore her son's sister , thereby declaring her opposition to the match .

Enter the big bad cable network owner Waghela , played by Anupam Kher . He tries every trick in the book through his slick agent to take over Sonali cable but fails , finally resorting to real violence . His goons kill Sonali's right hand man ( Played by Raghav Juyal ) who is more than like family to her , shattering her personally . Waghela's men then wean away Sonali's workers by offering higher pay , and try to shoot dead Raghu her love . But they have forgotten the old saying--hell hath no fury like woman wronged...

Sonali hatches a plan to take revenge on Waghela , but does she succeed ? Watch the movie for the answers . Meanwhile , Rhea plays a chawl grown Mumbai marathi gal perfectly . Her language from the chawls , her marathi accent while speaking hindi---all is perfect . Her non ability to speak english is even more perfect . Forty become 'phourty' and fifty becomes 'phiphty' when spoken from her mouth . She is sweet and sassy and endearing . Her gang of workers from Sonali cables are a boisterous bunch from the chawls ; they dance unsophisticatedly and they talk the language of the Mumbai street . But the 'jaan' of the film is Sonali as acted by Rhea Chakraborty . The whole film revolves around her .

The pace of the film does loosen up towards the end . Anupam Kher as Waghela is more like a comic book villain---more funny than menacing . Songs and background music are okay . Colours and photography and good . The drama in the film however cannot be called high octane .

Verdict---one time watch .

Two and a half stars out of five .

 Movie is on YouTube, can be viewed here

Lolita ( 1997 )

The full movie is available on youtube in HD quality , so you dont have to go anywhere else . The movie is based on the famous novel---Lolita .

Jeremy Irons catches the fancy of a young girl ( nicknamed Lolita ) played by Dominque Swain . They proceed to have a sexual relationship , and Jeremy marries her mother ( Melanie Griffith ) to stay close to her . But Melanie sends Dominque off to a boarding school , only to discover the relationship later . In a state of shock , she gets killed in an accident . This lets Jeremy get what he wants---guardianship of Dominique , and chance to continue their relationship . As she grows older , Dominique tires of him and wants to break away . Eventually she succeeds by going with a another man who exploits her . Jeremy searches for her in vain because he is in love with her . Finally Dominique sends a letter to him asking for money because she is married and pregnant . Jeremy is by now ashamed of having used her when she was so young and meets her and asks her to forgive him . She does , and he gives her a large sum of money to continue her life . But she also tells him of the man who exploited her and Jeremy is mad with rage and kills the man . He dies in prison and thus repents for his sin , but Lolita dies in childbirth too .

Thus in effect both are equally guilty and deserve to die in the director's eyes ---or so I thought . Though Jeremy is more guilty because he was an adult using the body of a young girl , Dominique ( Lolita ) was not innocent too as she gave herself up readily to him .

There are plenty of erotic scenes between Jeremy and Dominique . Dominique plays the unabashed sex kitten , spreading her soft milky white legs on Jeremy's thighs on innumerable occasions and acting in a sexually provocative manner and repeatedly making lascivious movements . Photography is splendid and so are the colours . Acting is good too from everyone . The movie moves from erotic in the first half to tragic in the climax and changes your mood swiftly .

Verdict---good .

Three and a half stars .

I watched the original 1962 version by Stanley Kubrick, It's hailed a classic now, don't know why, maybe bcz it was adapted from a classic book

I skipped few scenes in the middle bcz I found the movie unpleasant, there isn't one likable character in the movie

I felt that movie was very perverse and trying to tell older men, pedophilia is okay as long the girl is perverted herself like Lolita was...

And it didn't even have s*x scenes as far as I can remember, I think it was more implied

This latest version seems even more perverse

Katru Veliyidai

Went to see this one with high expectations. Mani Ratnam and ARR combo. Hardly disappoints.

Starring an Air Force fighter pilot Varun (Karthi Sivakumar) who's posted in Srinagar. He meets the love of his life in hospital as a patient Dr Leela Abraham ( Aditi Rao Hydari) and woos her with persistence. It's Love amidst the Kargil War. But this is emotionally tormenting love between a rather sadomasochistic couple. He's deeply flawed with control and anger issues and she keeps coming back to him despite everything that happens between them. The explanation that we get in a single frame is that his father is a similar person who has scarred him for life.

Anyway amidst the incredibly beautiful backdrops of Kashmir and Leh, love fluctuates to a sorry climax, with separate ways and then comes the war . Varun gets caught and in a prison in Rawalpindi gets enough time to think , take stock of himself and desire to redo his mistake. Most of the story is actually recounted by Varun in soliloquy from prison. He escapes with two of his mates and after a difficult journey through Afghanistan ( action, action)they finally return. Varun returns a hero and sets out to find his lady who has left Srinagar long back to make amends.

A dysfunctional hero in the backdrop of war does require considerable acting skills. While Karthi has impressed in his physical training for the part, his portrayal of the complicated character falls short. His acting in the key emotional scenes is forced and tortuous. Aditi certainly is the better actor of the two.

 If I was to give credits in this movie it would be to cinematographer Ravi Varman who has done a super job. The music is good, very good numbers, but some stand apart from the narrative.

Overall I didn't really find the typical class and sensitivity of a Mani Ratnam film here. Watchable for the technicality alone, this one was sadly disappointing. And this is the first time Ive said that about him.
