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 […]

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 […]

Special Review: The Dark Knight Rises

Written by on July 21st, 2012

You know that feeling when you enter a movie hall with sky high expectations, and the film manages to live up to them? Yes, Christopher Nolan, the master craftsman, has done just that and I walked out of the theater completely happy. The Dark Knight Rises (TDKR) packs a solid punch and is a fitting […]

Bol Bachchan Movie Review

Written by on July 8th, 2012

That director Rohit Shetty is a fan of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Golmaal is quite evident from the fact that he has named his most successful movie franchise after it and even his All The Best had two of its heroes watching the film on their home theatre. So it is no surprise that his latest Bol […]

Teri Meri Kahaani Movie Review

Written by on June 23rd, 2012

Love stories usually start with the boy meeting the girl. And then? The story can get breezy, or it can get intense or maybe heart-breaking. Kunal Kohli’s Teri Meri Kahaani has Shahid Kapoor meeting Priyanka Chopra over three lifetimes, which means going through the whole gamut of emotions thrice. 1960 – Struggling musician Govind meets […]

Paan Singh Tomar Movie Review

Written by on March 4th, 2012

I loved director Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Haasil but his subsequent films had been disappointments of varying degrees. So I was not expecting much from Paan Singh Tomar starring Irrfan Khan and Mahie Gill. However, this time Dhulia has lived up to the promise he showed in Haasil and more. Based on a real life story, the […]

Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya Movie Review

Written by on February 26th, 2012

Bollywood romcoms have a bad habit of turning out stale and predictable. It has only been a fortnight since the insipid Ek Main Aur Ek Tu left a bad taste in my mouth. So it was with some apprehension that I sat down to watch Mandeep Kumar directed Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya starring the […]

Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu Movie Review

Written by on February 11th, 2012

A Karan Johar Production, a Valentine season release, a name like Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (EMAET), and the beautiful pair of Kareena Kapoor & Imran Khan – one walks into the film expecting nothing less than a mushy romance. However, first time director Shakun Batra’s film is anything but mushy. Rahul (Imran), a sweet […]

Idealism Lost

Written by on January 18th, 2012

There was a time in the Hindi film industry when idealism was highly valued. From Guru Dutt’s Pyaasa to V. Shantaram’s Do Aankhen Baarah Haath, from Mehboob Khan’s Mother India to Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Satyakam, the protaganists were people who lived and died for their ideals. Their idealism was stubborn even though it gave them great […]

Players Movie Review

Written by on January 8th, 2012

The names Abbas-Mustan evoke images of racy thrillers with twists-n-turns, dashing heroes, sexy femme fatales and good music. Their movies may lack logic at times but they rarely lack in entertainment. So it was with expectations of getting thoroughly entertained that I sat down to watch their latest offering, Players, starring Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu, […]

Love Breakups Zindagi Movie Review

Written by on October 8th, 2011

Another week, another rom-com. This week it was Love BreakUps Zindagi, a film from the newly formed production house Born Free Entertainment, the baby of Dia Mirza, Zayed Khan and Sahil Sangha. The promos gave a fresh vibe and hence, despite the lead roles being played by not-so-inspiring actors like Zayed and Dia, I sat […]
