Banu posted a review for Zombie Army 4: Dead War in Games
It was a great game that I really enjoyed and I hope to see more out of this series especially after I played Zombie Army 4: Dead War.You start off with different stages of the games its gives u x-ray looks of the skull and other bones when u crushed them with your gun say you die but u hit the check point, you don't restart u keep all of your kills your scores and your firing score and head shots.I clicked to pre order the super deluxe edition for pc and saw that it was for epic store.so sad i wont be buying this game now.i hate epic store with a passion.

How could one slap turn lives upside down? Well, it was never about that slap. People fight all the time but they have the willingness to correct the situation, accept the responsibility. But why still it didn't work out here? The reason lies deep down under a shiny surface. If you don't realise these patterns, then it's just a matter of time. Even in case of a perfect healthy family, small routines, events are subconsciously being ignored or taken as granted. When it's about two people, let alone a family, everyone is different in a unique way yet they try to coexist. It definitely involves compromises, mutual help and understanding. Now this is most important and interesting. So if we don't balance out the activity, it will create a gap and will start to be perceived as someone's life is there just to make your's better, which is unfortunately most occurring household situation in India. Maybe because the mindset is set well before our time period and it's being passed on. In any case, things can and should change. In a perfect balanced life, share time, work, interest, be appreciative of any help you get, respect others and treat them well. At end, stay happy. And if you haven't watched movie - Thappad, go and watch it. Little slow but worth it.

Banu posted a review for Street Dancer 3 in Movies
Dance is my passion and any movie related to that it makes me jump to watch it right away. Remo D'Souza has taken a notch higher in terms of production value where he made his favourite stars to travel to London to shoot this movie. Street Dancer 3 is third movie in ABCD franchise which talks about a story of India Vs Pakistan dance groups who joins their hand together for a cause. To add value to the story, Remo has added illegal immigrants angle into the story which works to an extent barring I don't get into the intricacies of legality. A movie which boasts to be watched on 3D indeed is visual treat but what really as ardent dance lover, I had great expectations in terms of dance and it falls there. To start with the songs from first to third part is showing a downward trend and here, there are four songs which is great but again out of three three are remix version. The Muqabla song is indeed highlight of the movie followed by Garmi, Bezubaan and Lagdi Lahore Di. My heart sinks about the fact this movie didn't give me any song which I will remember forever. The choreography which should have been the USP of the movie and Remo, Kruti Mahesh, Rahul and I believe few more who are best dancers have created a chaos in total, in the name of dance. All the songs just have stunts and jumps. In order to release in multiple languages and earn loads of money, makers tried to use music pieces to show dancing in the movie so that they needn't have to worry about to dubbing the songs and this strategy has fallen flat. Comedy here used is just doesn't fit into the narrative or even a giggle. Varun Dhawan with his 6 packs is handsome hunk who is brilliant in his role and Shraddha Kapoor also gives a great support as leading lady of the movie. PrabhuDeva surprisingly has limited role in this movie. Nora Fatehi with her limited screen time but makes her presence felt with her beauty and dancing skill. Punit Pathak whom I believe is a great dancer and good actor is wasted totally and the favouritism is quite evident when Dharmesh and Raghav gets more prominent role and as actor they are big let down. Aparshakti Khurrana is sidekick. This movie lacked the presence of Lauren Gottlieb who is one hell of a dancer even though her acting is something I am not fan of. Loads of money and great dancers with limited story (I wasn't expecting that anyway) Remo has disappointed me. Watch only for the love of dance and amazing visual appeal else I guess you have other movies lined up for you. #pranurevie

Banu posted a review for Sonic The Hedgehog in Movies
I don't know what the critics were smoking but this movie is an absolute must watch! It was very funny through and through with enough backstory and sad moments to make you really feel for the character Sonic without making it into an overbearing "OKAY! WE GOT IT! HE'S LONELY!" situation. Ben Schwartz did a great job at personifying the voice of Sonic as a rambunctious teenager who has lived life (literally) in the fast lane and the various scenes portray. The humor is great for both adults (who will catch some adult jokes) and for younger audiences who enjoy random moments of slapstick, fart jokes and even more mature humor. Jim Carey was an amazing Dr. Robotnik and really put a personal spin on the maniacal bad guy. You understood where Robotnik came from and eventually why he has it out for Sonic (as well as how he got to be a human in Sonic's original world). Near the end, Carey does a Robotnik voice that is SO exact from the various cartoons and games you can almost fully witness his transformation into Eggman. The way the rings came into play was great as well, very reminiscent of the ring portals used to warp Sonic to special stages in many games. I'm really looking forward to the sequel(s?) to come! Do yourself a favor and flip off a "movie critic" and go see this movie either for yourself as a Sonic fan or with family just to get away and see a funny, non-stop entertaining film. You definitely won't be disappointed, especially with the new Sonic design that actually looks like the iconic character and not some Deviant Art abomination.

Banu posted a review for Love Aaj Kal in Movies
Yes don't trust the bad reviews... The movie is great! Infact it's really good!! Especially the old school romance! The entire past sequence will really take you away from all your present problems and you will fall in love with the entire sequence! The meetings, the train sequence! The line : " tum jitne khud ke bhi nahi ho utne mere ho raghu " and Randeep Hooda though played a short role has my heart! No one could do his role better than him!! Totally in love with Randeep Hooda. Kartik did an amazing job! The movie has a special essence a surreal feeling which people need to spend time and search in the movie! If u understand that special feeling of the movie you will definitely love the movie! It's not a normal love story neither does the movie focus on Kartik and Saras chemistry but focuses on the realities of a relationship people face ! Fact of life is I don't understand why are people continuously comparing it with the earlier Love Aaj Kal! I know that it's a similar concept but it's a story on love of today's and 90s. For eg : A teenager will not understand the earlier Love Aaj kal but will probably more relate to this one. Thus I feel it should be seen as an individual film! Apart from that Imtiaz Ali films always have great music and Shayad has my heart, the songs are definitely amazing!! Also debutant Arushi Sharma did a superb job!! She is amazing at her work and too pretty! She does everything very effortlessly I mean please tell me which modern day actress would slay in a plait and still look pretty enough to fall in love with!! Love Aaj Kal is really nice , please watch it and do not get confused by the bad reviews!
