✔     Introduction 


Hello Friends, I hope you are doing fine and are having a good time on bitlanders. Today I have come up with my another new blog with the title of "Bollywood Movie Review - Shaandaar".  Friends, in this blog I shall review a recently released and a Hit Bollywood movie "Shaandaar".  This movie is about a wealthy family in which there is a father who is very rich and has two daughters with two different women.  His first love is what he cherished throughout his life and that resulted in his first daughter, however he did not marry that woman and after her death, he married another woman who was materialistic and did not pay much attention to family bond and a loving relationship.  The absence of love creates different psychological, emotional and physical voids in the first daughter that are filled by a person who comes into her life with all the love and care she longed for.  The movie depicts a story in which there are some greedy personnel who want to occupy the wealth of that rich person by marrying one of his daughter with their son but their bad intentions are timely disclosed and the life of a daughter is saved from complete shattering.  This movie was directed by Vikas Bahl and was produced by the Phantom Films Production Company.

The movie "Shaandaar" was released on October 22, 2015 under the distribution banner of Fox Star Studios.  Some details of cast of this movie is as under:



✤    Shahid Kapoor as Jagjinder Joginder

✤    Alia Bhatt as Alia Arora

✤    Pankaj Kapur as Bipin Arora

✤    Sanjay Kapoor as Mr Fundwani

✤    Niki Aneja Walia as Geetu Arora

✤    Vikas Verma as Robin Fundwani

✤    Sanah Kapoor as Isha Arora

✤    Sushma Seth as Kamla Arora





Shaandaar will eventually side with this generation over their overbearing elders, but then – unlike Dil Dhadakne Do, which might have passed as a credible portrait of modern Indian relations – it’s coming from an inherently childish place, all animated backstory and lengthy tickle-fights. Bahl and Dutt treat this wedding as a youngster might a dolls’ tea party, attentively passing out sweets and filling everybody’s cups with imaginary chai: there’s something naively charming about it, even as it reduces Temple Newsam to a fairytale backdrop. I can’t say I didn’t giggle – I did, often – but as any Yorkshireman would doubtless declare: it ain’t half daft.

✔     My Movie Review - Conclusion





 Image Credit:





The movie "Shaandaar" is a nice family movie with a touch of comedy and depiction of different family affairs.  The movie forwards the message that love in relationships is very important which can solve many problems either financial or emotional.  The filming locations in Leeds England are awesome and very pleasing to the eyes as there is clear atmosphere with lush green fields in the background.  The actors and filming sequence of the story was good and keeps the viewers interested.  The film provides entertainment and has good quality songs which are trademark of Indian Films.  On the whole, I shall rate the movie 7 out of 10 and I feel this movie is a treat to watch.  The movie songs were quite famous because they had a touch of modern music style which was welcomed by Bollywood movie lovers.  The movie is a kind of happy go lucky movie with depiction of emotional feelings in a very nice manner.
