Written by on April 6th, 2013

Media scrums are an extended part of a journalist’s job, but the scrummage in the press room at TOIFA was a fascinating look into the disorganized proceedings around this event. Given around 3 minutes each, tv channels and magazines like ourselves had to throw out one or three questions in this shortened time period. Thankfully, […]

Written by on February 22nd, 2013

Y-Films are ready with their latest release Mere Dad Ki Maruti, which stars Saqib Saleem and Rhea Chakraborthy, with Ram Kapoor as the Dad. It looks to be a fun caper during the wedding season in Chandigarh where the Maruti goes missing and it is up to Saleem to get it back. The album is […]

Himmatwala Music Review

Written by on February 17th, 2013

Firstly, I cannot convey my utmost excitement for Sajid Khan’s remake of Himmatwala, whether it was the exciting promos that promised a more energized Ajay Devgn or Tamannah Bhatia making her Bollywood debut. However, I did approach with trepidation when the first promos of the iconic Nainon Mein Sapna, which seemed like a by-the-numbers recreation […]

I, Me, aur Main Music Review

Written by on February 16th, 2013

One of the most anticipated releases of 2013 is Kapil Sharma’s “I, Me aur Main” starring John Abraham, Chitrangada Singh, and Prachi Desai in the lead. Bollywood loves a “man-child coming of age story” and this time it’s Abraham who has to learn of true love from the many women that he’s upset and taken […]

Kai Po Che Music Review

Written by on February 5th, 2013

I’ll admit to being quite heartbroken that this album featured only 3 songs from my perennial fave Amit Trivedi. However, the richness and authenticity he lends to these brilliant tracks for Kai Po Che are worth savouring. The expectations are high for Abhishek Kapoor’s second film, which features the new wunderkind Sushant Singh Rajput, as […]

Sachin and Jigar are emerging as one of the best music directors in recent years, especially considering their rapid ascension from 2 years ago.

Bejoy Nambiar’s Shaitan is a perennial favourite album of mine, his latest film David, a Tamil and Hindi bilingual features the music from a whopping 8 composers.

REFLECTIONS 2012: Top 10 Actresses of 2012

Written by on January 13th, 2013

We can safely say that 2012 was finally a good year for women, while there will still be masala films that do not offer nearly enough scenes for their heroines like Asin or Sonakshi Sinha, who can clearly do better. 2012 was a stellar year for actresses to grab some layered and honest roles that […]

REFLECTIONS 2012: Top 10 Actors of 2012

Written by on January 13th, 2013

One of the best aspects of 2012 was the sheer range of films that were released, from the masala heavies by Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Ajay Devgn, to the surprises in Kahaani, Vicky Donor, and Gangs of Wasseypur. While the “100-crore club” was given much hullabaloo in the newspapers, it was the content of […]

REFLECTIONS 2012: The Bollywood Razzies

Written by on January 3rd, 2013

Despite the gems we have seen in 2012, there’s always going to be a lineup of duds that let you down and unintentionally make you laugh. 2012 rolled out the big masala films and introduced a great bunch of well-written and thoughtful films. So it’s time to scrape through dreck and remind ourselves of films […]

Written by on November 21st, 2012

After Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son of Sardaar have battled it out theatres, we can now shift gears and return to that ‘other’ hugely awaited gem Dabangg 2! The anticipation has always been there, but the promotions have been lying low until the teaser trailer and “Dagabaaz Re” were released last week. Our lovable […]

Khiladi 786 Music Review

Written by on November 5th, 2012

The 90s masala films are back in vogue, and who better to represent the genre than the Khiladi himself, Akshay Kumar, as he revives his iconic character again. After a 12 year gap since Khiladi 420 (in 2000) Akshay is back to his action avatar in Khiladi 786. This time, Kumar joins Himesh Reshammiya who […]

Aiyyaa Music Review

Written by on September 24th, 2012

Rani Mukherjee is back with a bang with Aiyyaa, which is wonderful return to form for her in a bubbly and wacky role that fits in perfectly with the heroine-dominated season of 2012. From the hilarious and albeit controversial promo, Aiyyaa looks like a great throwback to 80s masala with some culture clash between the […]

Student of the Year Music Review

Written by on September 5th, 2012

Student of the Year, as mentioned before in our albums feature, is hotly anticipated with Vishal and Shekhar replacing Shankar Ehsaan and Loy as Karan Johar’s go to music directors. Yet it’s an interesting pairing because with most KJo movies there’s a song formula that can be hard for new music directors to put a […]
