The Xposé Music Review

Written by on April 30th, 2014

Ananth Mahadevan’s The Xposé is being touted as “the biggest vintage musical thriller” ever with its musical cast of Himesh Reshammiya, and Yo Yo Honey Singh taking the lead in the murder mystery. The Xposé looks to be kitsch and fun, with a stellar supporting cast of Rajesh Gupta, Irrfan Khan and Adil Hussain in […]

Queen Music Review

Written by on February 8th, 2014

Kangana Ranaut is making a big splash with her film Queen where she plays the vivacious character Rani, who ventures out on her honeymoon in Paris by herself. Already the promos have been creating some buzz for Vikas Bahl’s debut film for it’s fun storyline, Kangana’s charm, and of course that characteristic Amit Trivedi sound. This […]

REFLECTIONS 2013: Razzies of 2013

Written by on January 4th, 2014

The year 2013 wasn’t without its awful dreck, unlistenable songs, and dreadfully earnest star sons trying their hand at acting. It was also the year where trumpeting your own horn (looking at you Mr Sajid Khan!) proved to an ironically bad choice, promotion tours became exhaustively boring, and albums that made our ears bleed. There […]

REFLECTIONS 2013: Top 10 Albums of the Year

Written by on December 27th, 2013

2013 has been a stellar year for soundtracks, with constant innovation and the odd chartbuster that eventually tops your most played list on your iPod. There was a lot of fabulous collaborations like Vishal Bharadwaj and South-African band Umoja for Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola or the full on Southie beats for Chennai Express. There […]

Dhoom 3 Music Review

Written by on December 16th, 2013

Who can forget that iconic theme tune to the Dhoom series, and it’s fully reloaded with Vijay Krishna Acharya helming the third instalment of the franchise. He’s recruited a sterling cast with Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif as the lead baddies, and brought Pritam in for the soundtrack. Pritam is definitely one of the most […]

R…Rajkumar Music Review

Written by on November 13th, 2013

Prabhu Deva is back in the game with his second release of the year, R Rajkumar, which teams him with Shahid Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, and his much sought after music director Pritam. Deva had been trying to book the busy Pritam to compose for his other films, but it hadn’t worked until this album. Pritam […]

FRAMING MOVIES Take Twenty-Three: Amar, Akbar, Anthony (1977)

Written by on September 30th, 2013

Masala brilliance thy name is personified by Manmohan Desai. Masala filmmaking is that secret ingredient to nearly every film in this wide and bountiful Hindi film industry. Of course, filmmakers disguise these elements in the social message films, the love stories, the thrillers, and countless other genre-pictures. If we want something to break up the […]

FRAMING MOVIES Take Twenty-One: Mr. India (1987)

Written by on September 14th, 2013

What do you get when you put the master screenwriters of populist and allegoric masala films and the urbane and intellectual director of Masoom to combine their talents to create India’s most beloved superhero? Mr. India is the end product that transcends all masala boundaries to become the zaniest and looniest comedies of the 80s. […]

Shuddh Desi Romance Music Review

Written by on August 27th, 2013

2013 has been a brilliant year for composers Sachin and Jigar, with the rollicking ABCD, the trippy Go Goa Gone, and their additions to the Issaq and Ramaiya Vastavaiya displayed their versatility and growing confidence. However, their big ticket looks to be Yashraj’s Shuddh Desi Romance, which is Maneesh Sharma’s third feature after his smash […]

Madras Café Music Review

Written by on August 18th, 2013

After the great success of their sleeper hit, Vicky Donor, John Abraham and Shoojit Sircar are tackling global terrorism and the assassination plot involving Rajiv Gandhi in the late 80s in Madras Café.

FRAMING MOVIES Take Sixteen: Kagaz Ke Phool (1959)

Written by on July 5th, 2013

Some films offer one an instant cheer-up and others speak to that gloom that we feel at certain ages and times. If I watch Pyaasa every afternoon, then Kagaz Ke Phool would be for each weekend since it envelopes this viewer into a sighing and sniveling wreck. The film is one of the rare cases […]

Written by on June 22nd, 2013

Anand Gandhi’s Ship of Theseus has garnered a large following since its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and has found a new fan in Karan Johar.

Raanjhanaa Music Review

Written by on June 6th, 2013

Easily one of the most awaited films of the year, Raanjhanaa captured our interests from the unconventional pairing of Sonam Kapoor and Dhanush, and Abhay Deol and the earthy tones from A.R.Rahman’s songs. Anand L Rai’s fourth feature after the sleeper hit, Tanu Weds Manu, looks to be an interesting and swooning love story especially […]

FRAMING MOVIES Take Eight: Pyaasa (1957)

Written by on May 27th, 2013

There was a time when I was a teenager that I would watch Guru Dutt’s masterpiece Pyaasa every afternoon. Each time, something new was found in the narrative that was rich with detail and poetry that is right up there with my favourite film ever made, Citizen Kane. The similarities between Orson Welles and Guru […]

Written by on May 5th, 2013

Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK have been trailblazers for quite a while on the film scene. Widening the scope of the crossover market with their debut Flavours, to their sleeper hit with Shor in the City, the duo are now taking up the zombie film and their most genre-oriented film to date with Go Goa […]

Go Goa Gone – Music Review

Written by on April 24th, 2013

The second zombie film of the year, Go Goa Gone, is a reunion of sorts for co-directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, along with music directors Sachin-Jigar after their sleeper hit, Shor in the City. The film immediately has us hooked with its wicked dialogues, addictive score, and Saif as the bleached Boris. If the […]

Written by on April 10th, 2013

Here is more from our TOIFA special reports this time with director Sujoy Ghosh. Now this was quite the free-ranging interview as Sujoy Ghosh, completely jet-lagged by long flight to Vancouver, was clutching to his coffee and sinking into the way-too-comfy couch. After an onslaught of photos and autographs, we got talking about the interconnectedness […]
