Zee Studios has released two awesome comedy films, ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and ‘Chak De! India in the past few months. Both these films have received warm Indian movie reviews from Cinema Watch List, earning significant praise from critics across the country.
Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai to star in the film ‘Raksha Bandhan’. The film revolves around the love story between a Punjabi guy (Aishwarya Rai) and his college going girl friend (Aushra Rai). The movie is based on the cartoon character of Ranma; however, the two main characters are Aishwarya Rai and Akshay Kumar. The film has been receiving great criticism from the Indian critics, who claim that the film lacks substance and has some lazy acting.
The movie is a fantasy film where Aishwarya Rai and Akshay Kumar act as the twin sons of a legendary figure named Ranma. Aishwarya’s character is obsessed with her elder sister, who wants to marry a prince from another state, while Akshay is more focused on his desire to prove himself to women from his home state of Goa. The two characters meet with a fatal accident while on a mission and Akshay sacrifices his life to save his sister. Aishwarya then vows to avenge her brother’s death and to become the best martial arts queen India has ever seen.
It is interesting to note how Akshay Kumar plays the role of the comic relief character. His martial arts expertise seems to be enough to win over the female character’s heart but when it comes to fighting a real-life opponent, Akshay is outclassed by his peers. He and his partner duo of Kirron Chabal produce the best chemistry throughout the film. Another interesting subplot in Zee Studios Hindi Movie “Aoba” revolves around Aoba the dog. Aoba is transformed into a violent and blood-thirsty dog after an unfortunate encounter with a lion. The dog is owned by Zee Studios and their loyal guard, played by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, is responsible for protecting Aoba.
Another good looking Hindi Film “Aida” starring Sharukh Khan also belongs to Zee Studios. The film revolves around a young girl called Prem Chopra, who is mentally challenged and has bipolar disorder. Prem is saved by an American doctor, played by Mike Tee. The film also chronicles the love story between Prem and his daughter Akbar, played by Priyadarshan Soman Nair.
Anushka Shetty’s “Kurban” is yet another character-based movie directed by Sharukh Khan. The movie is about a young girl who moves to a new town and lives with a family that consists of criminals. The movie is a bit humorous and at times dark at the same time, without ever losing its appeal to the audience.
