Movie Review: Son of Sardaar

Movie Review- Son of Sardar-

Diwali 2012, Two Big Movies got released. The pre-release clashes between the production houses regarding the screening of movie were the other unintentional publicity. Whatever be the past, both movies got released: one was filled with beautiful romance while the other was supposed to be comedy action packed. Jab tak hai Jaan (JTHJ) had surely the extra edge because of its hidden plot while Son of Sardaar (SOS) is the remake of southern movies. So in the case of SOS, the plot was partially revealed and one can surely guess what would be its ending. Choosing SOS in place of JTHJ was tough, still because Ajay Devgan has always been one of my favorite actors, I decided to give SOS a try.

Story Plot:-
Jassi  Sikh -boy  (Ajay Devgan ) stays in London    but as he gets the letter of government regarding his property, he travels to his native place to sell the property. In the train from New Delhi, he meets Sonakshi Sinha (Suk). They get friends with each other on the way. In the village, He also meets  Sanjay Dutt who in much wait of Jassi for the revenge of his uncle’s murder done by Jassi’s Father. Unknowingly Sanjay Dutt takes Ajay to his home, just to know in later time that  Jassi was the one they were looking for. According to the family tradition, enemies were well-respected inside the house but would be killed as soon as they come out. As Ajay gets to know it, he makes several excuses to not to come out of house. This is how film goes on...

My views
As well known by all, SOS as a remake of south-Indian movie, the story plot is no-where hidden. More-ever the climax is guessable as it is family drama. Still, within this range Movie is watchable and can be enjoyed with its comedies and few actions. The starting fight and Salman Khan coming for sometime is exciting while Ajay-Sonakshi conversation in train is filled up with comedy. Chases in different part of movie are fantastic while different comedies inserted within chases will give you enough laughs. Funny lines of Sanjay Dutt is noticeable (though you feel Sanjay Dutt speaking on such way is repetition of his earlier movies. Ajay’s action throughout the movie like fight while riding horse and action before the climax is indeed a crowd puller.

Cons of the movie
Still, movie doesn’t works up to the expectation. There are no many such action and I wished movie would’ve been better had Rohit Shetty directed it. The first action of the movie and few other stunts can’t be easily believed and looks a mere work of fiction though it is enough exciting. Once there was news that Ajay had performed the stunt of riding two horses at a time but seems it was deleted from final print of movie. Comedy in first half is a bit ok while second half goes down until the time Sonakshi is taken for engagement. Love story does create some good moment during the movie but it could have been made much better. Music in the regular interval especially in the second half is quite boring as the songs are not up to the mark and songs flavor look similar in the entire movie (barring the start and end song).

Ajay’s have performed well in this movie; especially during his stunts he is watchable.  He has successfully played comedy role. Sonakshi has performed beautifully in the entire part of the movie while Juhi Chawla’s role as fiancée of Sanjay Dutt can’t be sidelined. Sanjay Dutt in himself had played the antagonist role in Agneepath and he has shown his best in comedy cum antagonist part. Two cousin of Sanjay Dutt have played well and so have the entire crew. In all, movie is well-played within their best by the entire crew, but few more good works from behind the camera could have movie better.

Overall, Movie is a good entertainer. Had it not clashed with JTHJ, movie would have been hit as Ajay’s earlier movie Bol-Bachhan. I found it better than Bol-Bachhan but not as much as Singham (may be its personal flavor and taste). There are no flaws within the Direction but Rohit Shetty and his huge sounds during action are being missed here. Story could have been better and few unexpected climax would have made movie a better piece as it is now, still not to forget, this is the essence of SOS that every time you watch, you will laugh and enjoy the movie.
Good one, but surely not the best. I wish when Ajay can be seen with new story line of the movie (not the remake of old movies).

Ajay fans will enjoy while to fullest while critics will also write against the movie. For others, it will be just the average movie

My rating: 2.75 out of 5. The Store for Online Delivery The Store for Online Delivery

Product type- Online Store
Delivers Around - All India 

 Though this review is based on my personal experience of last one and half years, my views can differ from person to person more specifically person living in cities other than metro. So, I will be happy to get your views, comments and rating whatever and however they are.

The online store was never so popular in India earlier. The existence of and Rediff shopping was just for the name shake as very few people were satisfied from their service. More ever, the delivery charge, however large be the consignment, were been charged separately as handling charge. The online Store were hardly equipped with varied things till the time arrived in Indian Market to established its status as Online Mega Store being compared with like of Amazon.

Getting the correct product is online store where various things are available. From Books to Music, Mobiles to Laptop and other general accessories are found on flipkart. So, flipkart search algorithm are designed on such a way that they are so easy to find a suitable item. You can refine the search as per the brand and your need and this will help you to reach the correct product. More ever, I personally like the Product description I get in flipkart more than of any online website. The Rating for a product can reflect the rough sketch of usefulness of product to be bought though it is just a feedback rating from buyer. Reviews are available there, but they may not be so genuine for correct decision.

Compare, select and get it in your home.

Website browsing speed is very good and construction of website is user-friendly. Its ’compare’ feature helps to choose a better one among the other. As product is decided, we can choose the mode of payment for purchase. In almost all products, the availability of cash on delivery is the one that gives every customer some risk free purchase.

Let me point out some of the good and bad things about flipkart in details other than mentioned above.

1) Their self couriers : as I found in Mumbai and Delhi, flipkart has its own courier to deliver the goods. This makes the delivery effective and good handling of product.

2) Faster Delivery:- So because of them having their self courier, their delivery service is faster than any other online store. That’s why most of the product in flipkart are available as "to be delivered in 2-4 days" while the same product in other store gives a longer estimation of time. So, for quicker delivery, flipkart can be opted in metros while they take time to parcel the product when to be done by speed post.

3) Safe packing :- Flipkart provides safe packing for its delivered product. Most of the time when I have received books delivered from flipkart, even books are well-packed with plastic that prevents scratch and protected with other two level of packing to ensure safe packing.

4) Original Products: The most of products I found on flipkart are original and they don’t keep it in their site unless the product is genuine nor they keep it confusing products. So, this reduces the chance of defective product, however it should always be noted that a product can be defective or some exceptional defect during shipping
5) 30 days Replacement Guarantee:- Though this is the assurance given by all online store, flipkart delivering it through its own manpower makes this promise more assurable than others. For me, I never had to go for replacement as I always found the product in proper condition.

6) Customer care is always the affecting factor of any company, so here flipkart is acceptable. Personally speaking I never had reason to call customer care because of products complaint, but few of the times when I had communicated them through website itself, it was a good response. More ever, I liked the classifications to contact customer care that they have in their website.

Let us move towards some of the points which are bad in flipkart.

1) Higher Price:- Though flipkart has wider range of products, price of products mentioned in it are comparatively more than other online store. For e.g., Mobile phone and accessories are lower in snapdeal, Books price are lower in infibeam and fashion product are lower in some other else. So, when a customer wants to minimize its budget, he will think twice before buying any product here. Though they sometime sell product with some offer, Price is not satisfactory. More ever, their levels of discount percentage they offer in products have decreased since their opening.

2) Higher scale for free delivery: Since it first arrived, the scale for free delivery was 100, it then changed to 200 and then now it is 300. So this seems a higher scale for the customer who wants to buy just one book, and they end up paying higher charge for delivery. Though it can’t be argued that a specific scale is needed to balanced transaction in both of the party, free delivery after 300 seems a higher scale especially when they have their own couriers. But once when I had to send a book of 250 in the area beyond their coverage, they had speed post it. Although it took more time than expected, it reached safely with their usual packing

3) Some of the weird price:- In some cases, I have found that product price is between 271 to 299, which compels customer to pay more than 300 for a product. In one case, a product is priced 299, this means Rs 329 has to be paid for total delivery, this is indeed a weird price and flipkart need to think about such stupid price that takes extra money from customer.

4) Rare discount coupons available in web : this point can’t be said as drawback of flipkart, but as a customer, we may be opting for discount coupon. So flipkart discount coupons are rarely found on any web (I haven’t found a single one till today, if you have let me know also).

For some flipkart is the horrible nightmare as many people might have suffered through its delivery delay, Many People might be frustrated because of defective product they had dispatched, few may have wasted extra money in calling customer care to resolve the disputed issue, but given the condition that a thing will always posses both good and bad parts, I think flipkart posses more of former and its acceptable for online shopping provided shopping are limited to certain boundary. But not to forget, online shopping should be wise enough.

I myself have tried many other online stores but couldn’t find them acceptable. Especially late delivery as they don’t have their own manpower to deliver. So if you have money and you need the product in proper time, Flipkart is always a better option. Price might be higher, but the difference of price is not so high and it’s acceptable if one is seeking some good shopping. It is fast in metros, but it may be different in rural areas.

Let me know your views and ratings.
Merry Christmas and Happy new Year
