Main Tera Hero Movie Review

Written by on April 4th, 2014

David Dhawan is back! After entertaining the audience for most of the 90s, he somehow lost his way in the last decade. However, teaming up with his son seems to have helped him regain his touch. Main Tera Hero is vintage David Dhawan – very silly and absolutely hilarious. Seenu (Varun Dhawan) is the quintessential […]

Gunday Movie Review

Written by on February 16th, 2014

Gunday is based in the 70s and 80s. It is like a film made in that era too. That can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your taste. Think of Amitabh Bachahan starrers of the 70s with all their machismo, claptrap dialogues and devil-may-care swagger. While Gunday falls way short of […]

Hasee Toh Phasee Movie Review

Written by on February 7th, 2014

Nothing frustrates as much as a wasted opportunity. Hasee Toh Phasee had half its job done with the casting of the super talented Parineeti Chopra and the very sincere Sidharth Malhotra. So likeable are they together that one really really wants to like the film. Alas, the mediocre writing lets them down. Nikhil (Sidharth) is […]

Dhoom:3 Movie Review

Written by on December 20th, 2013

At the beginning of Dhoom:3, a circus owner claims to present before his audience a spectacle never seen before. I’m all ready to be impressed. The show commences and I wait. I keep waiting. And then the show ends with me wondering what was I supposed to be impressed by. That scene, in a nutshell, […]

R… Rajkumar Movie Review

Written by on December 6th, 2013

Prabhu Dheva’s cinema is a different genre altogether – utterly unrealistic but still entertaining in its weirdness. Once again he has thrown logic and realism to the winds and come out with R…Rajkumar, a masala entertainer through and through. A small town called Dhartipur is ruled by two warring drug mafia gangs. One day Rajkumar […]

Krrish 3 Movie Review

Written by on November 2nd, 2013

One walks into a superhero film wanting to be overwhelmed. Tall order indeed! After all, in how many different ways can a superhero save the world? The template is more the less the same in all superhero films. It is just the treatment that tells a winner from the loser. So is Krrish 3 a […]

Review: 24 (India) – Episodes 3 & 4

Written by on October 17th, 2013

After being underwhelmed by the first two episodes of 24 India (insert hyperlink of last week’s review?), this writer was hoping for a turnaround in the second week. Unfortunately, it was not to be. The 3rd and 4th episodes of the show turned out to be even more disappointing than the first two. 24 India […]

Review: 24 (India) – Episodes 1 & 2

Written by on October 7th, 2013

The Indian adaptation of 24 comes with a lot of expectations. It is Anil Kapoor’s first foray into television, not as a reality show anchor or judge but as an actor. That he has produced the show too after buying its official rights adds to the expectations. The fiction part of Indian television is mostly […]

Phata Poster Nikhla Hero Movie Review

Written by on September 20th, 2013

Rajkumar Santoshi’s comedies are mostly about ‘anything goes’ and his latest Phata Poster Nikhla Hero (PPNH) is no different. Once again he creates a madcap world which may seem more authentic in an animation film than a real one. Shouldering the responsibility of bringing Santoshi’s vision alive on screen is Shahid Kapoor who uses this […]

Shuddh Desi Romance Movie Review

Written by on September 7th, 2013

What happens when commitment-phobic people fall in love? Shuddh Desi Romance tries to find an answer in this quirky take on contemporary relationships. How today’s youngsters try to follow their hearts while being tied to the conventions and hypocrisies of small town India. Raghu (Sushant Singh Rajput) ditches his bride Tara (Vaani Kapoor) at the […]

Ghanchakkar Movie Review

Written by on June 28th, 2013

Ghanchakkar had so much going for it. The oddly interesting pair of Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi. A genuinely hatke plot. A lot of potential for a pacy thriller with comic elements. And yet, it ends up as flat as cola without the fizz. Sanjay (Emraan) is a professional safecracker who wants to give up […]

Raanjhanaa Movie Review

Written by on June 21st, 2013

Raanjhanaa is a love story. Not a romance and most definitely not a romcom. This one is about the kind of love that doesn’t understand the ‘move on’ way of life. It is not a simple tale but it is told with simplicity. Quite the opposite of the usual Bollywood staple, eh? And then there […]

Jolly LLB Movie Review

Written by on March 15th, 2013

The most disappointing kind of film is one you really want to like – for its earnestness, its noble intentions, its sincere actors – but are not able to. Director Subhash Kapoor’s earlier film Phas Gaye Re Obama was a gem of a satire. Jolly LLB doesn’t even come close to the brilliance of that […]

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns Movie Review

Written by on March 8th, 2013

Although I liked Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster moderately I felt it could have been better. In the sequel, Tigmanshu Dhulia fixes all that needed to be fixed the first time round and comes out with a cracker of a film which is bigger and better, much better. Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns starts where the […]

Special 26 Movie Review

Written by on February 8th, 2013

I loved director Neeraj Pandey’s A Wednesday and was eagerly looking forward to his next. What could have been a better follow-up than a heist film inspired by real life events? An exciting subject backed by solid acting talent and I expected a good thriller. However, Special 26 left me feeling underwhelmed. In the late […]

Special Report: Press Conference of Special 26 in New Delhi

Written by on February 5th, 2013

The team of the upcoming film Special 26 was in New Delhi recently for promotions. Actors Akshay Kumar, Kajal Aggarwal and Anupam Kher along with director Neeraj Pandey attended the press conference at a South Delhi venue. They took questions from representatives of various media houses and talked at length about the film as well […]

Inkaar Movie Review

Written by on January 20th, 2013

By: Shalu Dhyani Just when you think that Bollywood has finally grown up enough to tackle issues of sexual harassment at workplace, it gobsmacks you with an Inkaar – a film so inept and confused that I wonder what was director Sudhir Mishra’s intention in the first place. Maya (Chitrangadha Singh), the National Creative Director […]

Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola Movie Review

Written by on January 11th, 2013

Vishal Bhardwaj started out as an unusually rooted film maker. He was imaginative, he was experimental, he was original (yes, even when adapting Shakespeare). Vishal Bhardwaj of Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola (MKBKM) is still experimental and original but not rooted anymore. He is quirky and increasingly whimsical. The rootedness rears its head now and […]

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Movie Review

Written by on August 26th, 2012

Very seldom does Bollywood attempt a love story of people on the wrong side of forty. Therefore, the promos of Bela Sehgal directed Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi came as a breath of fresh air, promising a funny and heartwarming rom-com of two 40 plus protagonists. Unfortunately, the film could not live up to […]

Ek Tha Tiger Movie Review

Written by on August 15th, 2012

There are films and then there are Salman Khan films. The former kind needs a good script, good screenplay and decent acting chops to be liked. The latter kind just needs Salman Khan to be his own charming self. The problem with the Yash Raj Films produced Ek Tha Tiger is that director Kabir Khan […]

Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum Movie Review

Written by on July 27th, 2012

Are films with crass humour, sexual innuendoes, gay jokes, private parts’ references and double entendres your cup of tea? If no, director Sachin Yardi’s Kya Super Kool Hain Hum (KSKHH) is not for you. If yes, this Ekta Kapoor production starring Riteish Deshmukh, Tusshar Kapoor, Neha Sharma, Sarah Jane Dias and Anupam Kher may just […]
