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!
