Aashiqui 2 Poster

Synopsis: The film begins by showing a large crowd waiting for Rahul Jaykar (Aditya Roy Kapoor) – a successful pop singer whose career is waning because of his alcohol addiction – to perform at a stage show in Goa. After nearly completing a song, he is unexpectedly interrupted by Aryan (Salil Acharya) during his performance, Rahul fights him, stops his performance, and drives to a local bar. He meets Aarohi Keshav Shirke (Shraddha Kapoor), a Maharashtrian bar singer who idolizses Rahul. After noticing Aarohi looking at a photograph of Lata Mangeshkar in the bar, he assumes that she wants to become a singer. Impressed by her simplicity and voice, Rahul promises to transform her into a singing sensation, and asks her to never perform again in bars. Aarohi quits her job and returns to Mumbai with Rahul, who convinces record producer Saigal (Mahesh Thakur) to meet her. When Aarohi calls Rahul, he is attacked and injured by some unknown people, and is unable to receive her call. His friend and manager Vivek (Shaad Randhawa) says that news of Rahul’s accident should not be leaked to the media, and instead publicises a false story that Rahul has left the country to participate in stage shows. When Aarohi attempts to contact Rahul again, Vivek ignores the calls. After two months of fruitlessly attempting to contact Rahul, a broken Aarohi is forced to sing in bars again because of her family problems.

After recovering from his injuries, Rahul vows to search for Aarohi. He learns that Aarohi is working in a bar again and that Vivek had ignored her calls without informing him. Rahul apologizes to Aarohi and sacks Vivek, and they meet with Saigal for the recording agreement. Rahul begins to train Aarohi, who signs a music contract to sing in films and becomes a successful playback singer. Her family and Rahul are happy. But one day, he goes to a bar and watches Aarohi winning the award but two men who is in the bar begin to gossip that Rahul is using her as a servant. Hearing this he relapses into alcohol addiction. Aarohi, who loves Rahul more than her career, comforts him and make love. Despite Aarohi’s mother’s disapproval, Aarohi moves in with Rahul and things go well until Rahul’s addiction worsens, causing him to become aggressive and violent.

To help Rahul fight his alcoholism, Aarohi attempts to rehabilitate Rahul, sacrificing her singing career in doing so. After Saigal reminds them about their dream of Aarohi becoming a successful singer, Rahul orders her to focus on her work. During Aarohi’s stage show, Rahul meets a journalist backstage, who accuses him of using Aarohi for pleasure and money. Furious, Rahul beats up the journalist and starts drinking. He ends up in jail, and Aarohi comes to bail him out. Rahul overhears Aarohi telling Saigal that she is going to sacrifice her career for him and is ready to give up her celebrity status because Rahul is more important to her. Rahul thinks that he has become a burden in her life, and that leaving her is his only option to save her. The next day he bids her farewell and commits suicide

Distraught by Rahul’s death, Aarohi decides to quit her career but Vivek persuades her to stay. He reminds her that Rahul wanted her to become a successful singer and has given his life as he did not want to be a burden on her. Aarohi agrees, and resumes her career as a singer. Later, she signs her name as “Aarohi Rahul Jaykar” in a fan’s handbook as a tribute to Rahul and her unsung desire to marry him. As rain starts falling, she watches the couple who took her autograph sharing a romantic moment under a jacket as she and Rahul had done when he was alive.

Mere Dad Ki Maruti Poster

Synopsis: The plot is set in Chandigarh, where a wedding is about to take place at the Khullar House, and father Tej Khullar (Ram Kapoor) has bought a new Maruti Ertiga car as a wedding gift for his daughter & would-be son-in-law. A few days before the wedding, his college going son, Sameer (Saqib Saleem) who the father thinks is good for nothing, secretly takes the car out to impress the hottest girl in college, Jasleen (Rhea Chakraborty). After dropping Jasleen at her hostel and in a drunk state, he loses the car by accidentally giving the keys to a person who Sameer thinks is a valet. As soon as he realises that the valet doesn’t have the keys and he had lost his car, he and his best friend Gattu (Prabal Panjabi) go on an all night search to find the car.

The next day they get an Ertiga model (test drive) to the house to show Sameer’s father that the car was still in the garage. They also meet a car dealer Pathan (Ravi Kishen) and agree to purchase a stolen Ertiga from him. Pathan promises them to give the car the very next day. To ensure that there is a car in the garage in the night, they take another Ertiga on rent from a Jat family and bring it home. The day before the wedding, Sameer returns Ertiga and in the night goes to meet Pathan along with Gattu and Jasleen. While at Pathan’s place, a police raid happens and the three barely manage to escape. Pathan’s assistant calls Sameer telling him to take the car but its a trap set by the police and Sameer ends up in jail.

On the morning of the wedding, Sameer explains to the cops what happened but the cops insist on meeting his father. Sameer informs his sister who sends her fiancee to bail out Sameer. While this is happening, a cop informs the police control room that an Ertiga is being stolen by a gang using a tow truck. A chase ensues and police catch the thieves and hand the car back to Sameer.

After the wedding ceremony, Sameer manages to get the car back decorated and behaves as nothing has happened. But a few minutes later, Gattu brings another Ertiga to Sameer’s home and so does Jasleen, leaving everyone shocked and confused as there are three Ertigas. Sameer then confesses to his father in the presence of everyone what happened over the past few days. His dad loses his temper, chides him but then forgives him and all are happy.

The audience comes to know that Gattu had won a contest where the 1st prize was a Maruti Ertiga and since Jazleen had saved a Jat family member’s life by taking him to the hospital on time, the Jat family gifts the car to her in gratitude.

Jolly LLB

2013-03-15 | Courtroom Comedy, Drama | U/A by CBFC

Jolly LLB Poster

Synopsis: At the start of the film, a group of rich brats are shown driving their imported Mercedes at dangerous speeds in a drunken state during late hours. As they are driving, they come across another similar youngster drink-driving. They engage in a verbal duel and subsequently race with their cars. At one curve the youth runs out of his luck and loses control of his Land Cruiser and consequently crashes into the foot-path.

Cut to Uttar Pradesh District court where an advocate Suresh Vashishth (Brijendra Kala), who also doubles as an astrologer, gains a client – who seems to be a thug waiting for bail – by saying that his current Lawyer Girdhar Sharma has a habit of forgetting the names of his client and joking that he might even get him a death sentence instead of a bail.

Enter Jagdish ‘Jolly’ Tyagi (Arshad Warsi) a Defence lawyer who attempts to get his client, Dr. Harphool bail on the pretext of the judge’s birthday and states that media fabricated the entire incident involving Dr. Harphool’s son operating a pregnant woman for the sake of a Guinness Book of World Records entry. Mahesh Gupta, the PIL filer opposes this by showing the photos taken with Dr. Harphool’s cell phone furthermore accuses him of using his clout to suppress a case from being registered. Upon hearing this Dr. Harphool loses his cool and in the ensuing chaos unintentionally admits that his boy operated the woman. Due to this false move, the judge postpones his bail along with Jolly’s salary.

Disappointed with the result of his latest case Jolly loses hope in Meerut and decides to move to Delhi, the capital of India, in search of a better clientele where his Brother-In-Law lives even after much persuasion by his friend Sandhya (Amrita Rao) to remain persevere.

But the situation gets even worse in Delhi where Jolly, in order to make a living, poses as an apprehended terrorist in front of the media for INR1000. While in Delhi, Tyagi comes to know of the Land Cruiser Hit-and-run case involving Rahul Dewan, son of Billionaire Yograj Dewan (Mohan Kapoor), whose defense lawyer is the much respected ‘star’ litigator Tejinder Rajpal (Boman Irani). During the trial, the strong Rajpal brings to light the fact that 7516 road accidents occurred in Delhi, while the newspapers of the past 6 months only seem to highlight the occurring of 1 accident. Thus, Rajpal successfully gets Rahul Dewan acquitted due to lack of evidence, eyewitnesses and the so-called ‘Land Cruiser’, claiming that his client was being victimized by the media due to the fact that he was from a rich family.

In the aftermath of the court judgment, Jolly, after being inspired by the media backlash, takes a leaf out of Advocate Mahesh Gupta’s book and files a PIL in the court regarding the case. When Judge Tripathi’s (Saurabh Shukla) questions the filing of a PIL despite the issuance of a sentence earlier, Jolly, along with Vasu (Ishtiaq Arif Khan), mentions media reports about the police presenting tampered facts and leaving out critical evidences. He gets a rescheduling of the hearing after getting rebuked for failing to provide evidence, citing media reports and for making spelling mistakes in the PIL like ‘apple’ instead of ‘appeal’ and ‘prostitution’ instead of ‘prosecution’.

Jolly, heartbroken after the incident, stays back late. A person named Albert Pinto (Harsh Chhaya) approaches him, claiming to be an eye-witness who was present while the accident took place at the night of 20 April and who also saw Rahul Dewan. He provides Jolly with a copy of the police complaint he filed along with the ticket of the film after watching which he was returning to his hotel and testifies in the court. As a result the court asks Rahul Dewan to appear again. Jolly gains overnight media recognition and an office from Kaul Saab whose daughter was raped and murdered by a cop’s son but later walked free due to Rajpal’s exploitation of the loop holes present in the judicial system.

Albert Pinto Actually is Tejinder’s man and wants more money from the Dewan’s . Albert Pinto tells Jolly that he will turn against him and not identify in court saying that a deal has been stuck with Tejinder for INR20 million and Jolly will get INR2 million . Jolly tells Albert that he made a mistake and should have bargained for more. But he is baffled to know that Albert is Tejinder’s man. He accepts the offer and tells Sandhya this who gets angry at him for not standing up for the victims and being selfish.

Kaul Saab comes to know the next day that Jolly has taken the money from Tejinder and slaps him. Jolly realizes his mistake and decides to fight and win the case. He searches for evidence and with the help of his Brother in Law finds a video which has the recording of the day of the accident. Jolly presents this video in court and Tejinder somehow says that this was driven by the Driver of the Dewans’. Jolly does not lose hope and finds an eye witness but he is reluctant to come to court but tells him to stop searching in New Delhi and search in Gorakhpur where he will find the evidence.

The day of the hearing, Jolly questions SI Rathi whether he did the investigation honestly and diligently and asks him to read out loud the names of the 6 who died. Jolly claims that in reality only 5 people died and seeks permission to present the sixth one who apparently died as a witness without prior notice. Rajpal vehemently objects but Judge Tripathi overrules his objections.

A Burkha clad Sadakanth Mishra enters the court and recognizes Rahul Dewan as the driver of the Land Cruiser which killed his 5 acquaintances and rendered him a cripple. He also states that SI Rathi left him after taking his yearlong savings of INR30,000 and gold ornaments meant for his sister’s wedding. Rajpal asks for a rescheduling but Judge Tripathi does not comply. During the lunch time, SI Tripathi calls Pinky to bring the man he captured, who turns out to be one Ramakanth Sukhla. When the court resumes, Rajpal claims that the police investigation was ‘botched’ up since it stated that 6 people died in an accident by truck while the prosecution claims that 5 died in an accident by a car. He recommends that the strongest action be taken against SI Rathi as evident from the Prima facie and questions whether the court should be sending Rahul Dewan to jail on the basis of a botched up investigation. He jokingly adds that foot-paths are not commissioned by Government for sleeping. Jolly, in his submission, agrees with Rajpal that foot-paths are not for sleeping and rhetorically asks why these poor, deprived of work, shelter and food come to tarnish the beauty of the metros. He adds, however, that they do have one right: the right to obtain Justice; one that is given to them by the Constitution of India. Infuriated, Jolly states that if the case lingered any longer, Rajpal would certainly prove that Sadakanth Mishra was Shah Rukh Khan while a train caused the accident, and due to lack of evidence the court would have to comply. He states that foot-paths are not for driving either. This was the ‘joke’ and he adds that Judge Tripathi’s reputation was at stake. Judge Tripathi says that there are two aspects to the case. The first one was that SI Rathi was to be suspended with immediate effect and an investigative process be started against him. The second one was the manipulation of facts, which would be necessary only if Rahul Dewan was guilty. The judge dishearteningly admits that in spite of being fully aware of who committed the crime, he is rendered helpless due to the lack of substantial facts as evidence which are, as evident, prudently kept at bay by the ones whose interests are at stake. He also adds that he was determined to make this one an exception even if it meant exploiting his chair to some extent. He was least bothered to notice whether he would be set free in the impending legal battle. As a result, the court finds Rahul Dewan guilty and sentences him seven years of imprisonment under Indian Penal Code 304. Thus, Jolly wins the case and his self-respect and is congratulated by all and sundry.

Himmatwala Poster

Synopsis: Set in 1983, the story begins with Ravi (Ajay Devgan) winning a fighting competition at a club. He is called as ‘Himmatwala’ meaning courageous man. He then goes to Ramnagar village where he meets his mother, Savitri and his younger sister, Padma who are living a miserable life. Ravi’s mother tells him that his father was an honest and respected man, and he was the priest of the temple. His father was framed by Sher Singh, the tyrant zamindar (landlord), for robbing the temple since the latter saw him commit a murder. Disgusted, Ravi’s father commits suicide. In revenge, young Ravi tries to kill Sher Singh but failed. When Ravi’s house is burnt, Savitri tells him to run away as Sher Singh will kill him. With revenge in his mind, Ravi beats up Narayan Das, Singh’s manager and brother-in-law, as well as threatening Sher Singh. The next day, he publicly humiliates Sher Singh’s daughter, Rekha because she was beating up her innocent driver. In response, Rekha (Tamannaah Bhatia) unleashes a tiger on the village in front of Ravi. Her plan was unsuccessful, however, as it backfired. Rekha falls down from the terrace and is about to be attacked by the animal, when Ravi jumps and saves her life. Rekha falls in love with Ravi, and afterwards, saves Ravi’s life against his father’s plans. On the other hand, Ravi comes to know that Padma is in love with Shakti, Narayan Das’s son. He has his objections and so has Narayan. However, Sher Singh tells Narayan Das that marrying Shakti with Padma would give them an upper hand over Ravi as they can ill-treat Padma and keep Ravi in control. Meanwhile, Padma now knows that Ravi is not her real brother, and the real Ravi died in a road accident. Before dying, the real Ravi asked him to take care of his family. Padma is initially upset, but then reconciles after Ravi saves her life. Shortly after Padma and Shakti get married, both the father and son start ill-treating Padma. In revenge, Ravi uses Rekha against her own father, just like what she advises him. After Rekha tells her father that she is pregnant with Ravi, Sher Singh begs Ravi to marry his daughter. Eventually, Ravi punished Narayan Das and Shakti by doing all the household chores. He also wins the Sarpanch election, and Shere Singh finally gives all the property documents back to the villagers, which Sher Singh had illegally taken from them before. However, Shakti overhears Rekha and Ravi’s conversation about the fake pregnancy and that he is not the real Ravi. Angered, Sher Singh tries to kill him by bringing 20 fighters from the city, but failed. While they are beating Ravi, the tiger (which Ravi had fought with) comes and saves his life. Ravi then brutally beats Shakti, and is about to kill Sher Singh when his mother stops him. In the end, Sher Singh, Narayan Das and Shakti ask for the forgiveness from Ravi, Savitri and the rest of the villagers.
