HOLLYWOOD VS BOLLYWOOD (IN THEATRES)

THE GOOD HOUSEVIKRAM VEDHA

In “The Good House” Sigourney Weaver and Kevin Kline prove they are still at the pinnacle of their acting acuity and save the film from benign mediocrity.  Weaver depicts a successful real estate agent (Hildy “Good”), divorced from her gay husband, “Scott” (pungently depicted by David Rasche), mother of two daughters and an alcoholic, in denial. Kline, an ex-beau,” Frank” hovering attentively on the sidelines (regretfully, limited screen time, charming nonetheless), untrusting her alcoholic whims. Ineffective rehab leads to the swilling of merlot; inebriation morphs into a blackened abyss, an inconceivable cavern to ascend.

Lacking the potency of “Days of Wine and Roses” but co-directors Maya Forbes and Wallace Wolodarsky plus an authoritative Sigourney Weaver earn genuine accolades for a film that shuns platitudinous twaddle and embraces the vicissitudes of alcoholism.

THREE & ½ STARS!!!

“VIKRAM VEDHA” 

Peneflix has neglected the Bollywood genre of late; there have been to few worthy of the mental might to address, examples “Ek Villain Returns”, “Brahmastra: Part One”; but “Vikram Vedha” secures watchability primarily because of the performances by major Bollywood icons: Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan; perfectly paired, their warring scenes are spellbinding (no one takes abuse like the action stars in Hindi films); mimicking  “Michael” in “Halloween” they never die, ceaselessly rising from dying, to tussle another day. Edge- of- your seat storytelling keeps viewers bewitched throughout, a must-see film for aficionados of eminent cinematography, spectacular, inordinate skirmishes and pneumatic, brawny musclemen.
