BWW Review: LA DANCE PROJECT Bombs at The Joyce
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 27, 2016

Three men engage in acrobatic entanglements that transform from free-moving sculptural configurations to crumpled masses of bodies that roll all over the floor of a darkly lit fog filled stage. Resembling an improv-ed floor-work exercise full of incongruously musical acrobatic manipulations, this indulgent routine - replete with lingering touches and mashing of bodies into each other - revealed little about its performers and even less about itself the longer it went on.

by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Jul 20, 2016

On October 30, 2003, the institution of what we call American Musical theatre would never be the same. This highly anticipated musical hit Broadway running with box office success and two stars top billed. The wickedly talented Idina Menzel (Elphaba) and Kristin Chenoweth (Galinda) were the talks of the town in Stephen Schwartz's new musical. The magical question is, how do you keep a musical relevant and box office worthy in this day and age when rapping forefathers capture the masses? My answer is, if it ain't broke, then don't fix it. This show evolves in every way, from the music, movement, costume and make-up design we are taken on a magical journey. (more...)

BWW Review: TE3N at Sujoy Ghosh Production
by Sayanvati Raysak - Aug 5, 2016

Director: Ribhu Dasgupta Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Vidya Balan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Teen is a suspense thriller set in the backdrop of Kolkata city, that brings together two parallel investigations of two kidnappings and tries its best to build up an explosive, emotionally charged film. To know whether the film is really a gripping thriller or not, just go through the review. Teen Plot: The plot of the film revolves around the life of John Biswas (Amitabh Bachchan), who lost his granddaughter, Angela, in a tragic kidnapping incident that scarred him & his wife Nancy forever. The world has moved but it's John, who hasn't given up his relentless quest for justice. He continues to visit the police station where he's shunned & ignored every day. On The Other Side, there is Martin Das (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), who is an ex-cop turned priest and interestingly, he also has one thing in common with John-Angela's kidnapping! The death of Angela had a life altering impact on both men. But then, one day, there's another kidnapping & everything about it echoes similarity with the kidnapping of Angela. Father Martin is once again dragged into the investigation by cop Sarita Sarkar (Vidya Balan). While the priest & the cop tackle the new kidnapping, John stubbornly pieces together the identity of Angela's kidnapper from the bits of information that he collects through his own investigations. Will John Biswas be able to find out the culprit or not, forms the crux of the story! Performances: When a film has actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Vidya Balan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, there is no second thought about their performances. The trio shines in their roles. There are a few scenes, where Amitabh Bachchan's helplessness and body language have come out on the screen so nicely, that you can easily relate to his character and feel his pain deep inside your heart! Nawazuddin too, leaves no stone unturned in impressing us with his amazing talent and he makes a great impact with his overall performance. However, Vidya has less screen space when compared to Amitabh & Nawazuddin but she did full justice to her role. Technicalities: Teen is surely one of those dishes, which has yummy ingredients but is not well prepared by the chef! And we can see that chef in Director Ribhu Dasgupta! When you cast such powerhouse actors, automatically audiences' expectations from the film is high. But owing to film's poor script or a series of plotholes, Ribhu's story-telling lacks the perfection that ends up leaving the film quite predictable. We also felt that the movie needed a tighter editing. Unfortunately, the pace of the film is also very slow which is yet another drawback of this suspense thriller. Verdict: If you are expecting a nail-biting thriller from Teen, then surely this one is not for you! But you can surely give it a shot to witness the classic acting of Mr Bachchan! We give an extra half star to Amitabh Bachchan's arresting performance! (more...)
