Blue Mountains: A tedious mountain climber indeed!

Blue Mountains: A tedious mountain climber indeed!

 

Starring Ranvir Shorey, Gracy Singh, Rajpal Yadav, Simran Sharma, Arif Zakaria, Mahesh Thakur, and Yatharth Ratnum, Blue Mountains is a movie about those who dream big, but lack self-confidence. The movie is about a hill-town carefree boy, Som who accidentally gets selected in a singing reality TV show. His mother, a yesteryear’s lead singer tries to push him and fulfill her lifelong dreams through him. But he returns home after failing, and dejected. But, his family and friends boost his morale and tries to bring back his passion once again. ‘Blue Mountains’ gets its name from the majestic peaks where Som lives. The intent while making the movie is noble, but the execution is far away from satisfactory as the screenplay is so weak, and the acting so unworkable. Ranvir Shorey looks unsure of his role, and Gracy Singh has not even displaced a single spark as she portrayed in her debut film Lagaan. The rest of the co-actors are amateurish and are made to mouth high sounding, pretentious dialogues that irritate no end.

The first half is a bad attempt at recreating a singing reality show. At least those shows entertain and can hardly be termed as boring, but that is aptly done in the movie. You’ll have to keep reminding yourself that this is not a parody. Sadly! The second half is confusing not because it requires you to exercise your brain muscles but because what's happening seems pure nonsensical. Despite having a topical storyline, here’s a movie that never even once looks like it is inspired from a real place. The story of the movie could have been more relevant. We would suggest watching it on TV, if you really wish too!

 

Bollypedia Ratings – 1/ 5 stars

  • Whenever a celebrity does something whether good or bad, extraordinary or mundane, the news always manages to make its way to the headlines. The frenzy around Indian celebrities who became politicians is therefore justified. And when the theme is women-centric, it’s even better.
  • We all know actors who are also singers seem to be the latest trend in B-town. And you must be aware there are quite a few of them, but we have news for you! First, this trend is not new-found and secondly there are many celebrities who possess this talent. Shocked aren’t you?
  • Having a legal notice attached to one’s image is not good for any individual, but when you are a star, it is even worse, as every star has a brand name to maintain and landing up in trouble due to such unforeseen circumstances is nothing short of a controversy! Here is a list of top Bollywood stars who went to jail.
  • Delhi is not a place….its a feeling! Being the capital city, it has its advantages and disadvantages, but we sure love it more than anything. A lot of our stars are Delhi kids and proud to be a ‘Dilli ka Launda’ or ‘Delhi ki Tota’. Lets check them out!
  • The it couple Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor are back with a bang with Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos. As people cannot contain their excitement we came up with a very different theory relating Jagga with everyone’s favourite childhood comic Tintin. Lets get nostalgic as well as surprised!
  • Some artists in Bollywood have changed the way the industry functions. These artists have been very few, but they have turned the whole mindset of the filmmakers around. One such artist was Dev Anand. The man’s brilliance made him one of the most memorable artists in the history of Bollywood.
