Fringe Review: Dinosaur Time Machine – Glam Adelaide

Welcome to Dino-Club. Club members Hannah and Flic welcome the audience into their Dinosaur clubroom through a quick induction, instantly pulling everyone into their Dino-sized world. Dinosaur Time Machine is a brilliant family-friendly show and should be high on anyone’s “must see” list. Friends Hannah and Flic are obsessed with dinosaurs, and they use humour, circus tricks and brilliant stage-craft to work fact after fact into the script in a unique way. The pair work well together, bouncing off each other and interacting extremely well with the audience. The pace is fast and the gags come even faster. Through the use of simple props, the pair take us back in time to try and find a dinosaur. The magic of this show is in its simplicity. It’s not over complicated with massive sets or complex props and staging. It is all in the engaging presentation of Hannah and Flic, and the added bonus of Blue, the T-Rex. Yes, this show even has a giant T-Rex, with a highly unique call – you’ll have to see the show to hear that! Dinosaur Time Machine is a quick-moving show that squashes so much content into 50 minutes, not a moment is wasted or left dead. Perfect for ages 3 – 10, but as an adult, you’ll walk away having learned something new. I attended with my 6 year old daughter, who was laughing out loud through the whole show, and, I will admit, so was I. The car ride home was full of recounts from the show and reciting facts that had been learned. Dinosaur Time Machine will be playing at The Melba Spiegeltent in Gluttony until Sunday 20 March. Show times vary. Tickets through FringeTix or at https://adelaidefringe.com.au/fringetix/dinosaur-time-machine-af2022 .

Mera Vyah Kara Do review: Flimsy premise and tiresome humour make this a dull watch – Cinestaan

Directed by Sunill Khosla, the Mandy Takhar-starrer is a tired old tale that fails to impress. The Punjabi-language romantic comedy Mera Vyah Kara Do is yet another film about a young woman looking for a suitable match. Directed by Sunill Khosla, the Zee5 original film is the story of a young girl Noor (Mandy Takhar), who is a happy-go-lucky girl. A pandit informs her mother that Noor should be married by her next birthday, which is three months away, or she may end up without a husband. Terrified for her daughter’s well-being, the mother urges her to make a profile on a matrimonial site. However, Noor finds that there are no proposals or even views on her profile! She uploads some fun pictures of herself in short dresses, and lo and behold, she is flooded with proposals. She meets all kinds of men online who are attracted to her but she doesn’t really like anyone. A local gangster’s son also wants to marry her and literally fixes the marriage date at gunpoint. Meanwhile, Noor meets Ekum (Dilpreet Dhillon) who has recently broken up with his fiancée. Noor falls in love with him but Ekum cannot quite make up his mind and needs time to think. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking and Noor needs to get married before her deadline.  The premise of Mera Vyah Kara Do has been seen several times and the film is centred on Takhar’s character. However, the script and dialogues are disappointing as several scenes are stretched and are, at times, awkward. A prime example is the opening sequence, which is a long one that shows Noor waking up, brushing her teeth, making faces in the mirror, doing her exercises, having her tea, soaking in the atmosphere, getting dressed, putting on her make-up, playing with her hair and finally coming down to meet her mother for breakfast! The humour is forced and oftentimes too on-the-nose. The family of gangsters, for example, roams around with guns all the time; otherwise, how will we ever know that they are goons! The background score is overpowering and, in places, dissonant with the scenes. There are also scenes that seem to float in mid-air that end up having no impact on the film. One example is the fact that Noor’s profile is blocked by the matrimonial site as her pictures are seen as being too risqué. But this has no impact whatsoever on anything, so one wonders why the scene exists in the first place. Also finding regular western attire scandalous is beyond ridiculous. All this becomes pretty tiresome pretty fast.  Takhar’s performance is fair and one wishes she had a better script to work with. Dhillon meanwhile, fails to impress and leaves no impact. In terms of the music, only ‘Selfiyan’ is a likeable, foot-tapping number. Overall, Mera Vyah Kara Do fails to impress.  Directed by Vijay Kumar Arora and starring Gippy Grewal and Neeru Bajwa, the film features an story… Jinne Jamme Saare Nikamme review: Family entertainer with a social message that’s worth a watch The Punjabi-language film is a comment on our modern lifestyles that leave no time for family….
