Preview: American Made and Spyder, Two Important Releases Which You Need to See This Week.
Preview and Analysis: American Made and Spyder.
Directed by DOUGH LIMAN who has been the man to have brought the spy thriller back to relevance in 2002 with the classic BOURNE IDENTITY and captain who can be most trusted to control and guide a dwindling ship which was once in cruise mode though may have had some large bumps but hardly seems to stop. Will he once again give TOM CRUISE the boost?
If trailer and the subject based on an unbelievable true story is any indication we believe it’s going to be now or never will be too harsh but getting back on box office shore will be tough to the core.
The movie has everything going for it be it the budget or the controversy which yes is an important ingredient which is created or gets invented depending on convenience. But what’s unfortunate is our dual faced Indian society is not ready to accept what we are like and what’s being portrayed, we are pious so nothing but lies will be allowed to be showcased and truth will be chopped giving even Edward Scissorhands a complex.
Should you watch it? Yes without fail not only because it’s hopefully going to be an edge of the seat ride but also 1 hour 55 minutes have been shrunk to 1 hour 25 minutes by censor board thus fully justifying the Tagline of the movie “SKY IS THE LIMIT” when it comes to the indian intolerance.
Directed by A. R. MURUGADOSS who has been one of the few filmmakers who has been giving us exciting and films that are engrossing until his last couple including this when the spider it seems lost its touch of Web tight scripts.
If we solely go by teaser then it was seeming bright but then came the, trailer and expectations went dark. It seems the ideas are good in brain but till the time the screenplay and final execution takes place everything seems to be disinterested and out of place even this time be it MAHESH BABU or the Chailwala (and we not demeaning anyone, we know how Chailwala has given his fellow PEERS a bad name) the production.
So is reinventing himself the need of the hour for the director? We are not being judgemental but yes there have been many cases when the best of the best come to a point where they need to introspect and look back at what they had done and what they are doing now will enlighten them the expression The chalk and cheese needs an up gradation.
Should You watch it?
With a humongous budget of 120 CR if makers are too be believed though trailer didn’t justify it seems, it nee,est wishes of many to earn every penny.
