It goes without saying that it’s a miracle that the film makers believed that a theme as this could work wonders in 2019. And it’s even a greater marvel that they got several sensible heads to give a nod to this project that could have probably made a ripple a good fifteen or twenty years back.
‘Parole’ is a film that hardly has anything original or memorable about it. Trying hard to cash in on an actor’s stardom, it throws in liberal doses of political and familial sentiments hoping to workup the goose bumps, none of which serves any purpose.
The intrigue that shrouds the title ‘Ira’ barely makes its ways into the film. It is less about victims or even victimization and more a customary plot on the hunters and the hunted; a generic fare that simply isn’t rousing enough to have your hair standing on its ends.
‘Sherlock Toms’ is a daft film that is neither alluring nor even remotely interesting. Forget all the incoherence that underlies it, it’s a comedy that glumly fails to conjure up even some simple laughter that would render it memorable or worthwhile.
Despite a premise that is loaded with possiblities that I’m sure most viewers would have taken to eagerly with a bit of inquisitiveness, ‘Bobby’ reaches nowhere near any of its triumphant predecessors. It lacks the tastefulness that could have done it tons of good, and instead strikes you as a dramatic overstatement on love that attempts to defy age constraints.
