RAABTA Movie Review – Everything looks pitch perfect except the screenplay

RAABTA Movie Review - Everything looks pitch perfect except the screenplay
June 10, 2017

Thanks to RAABTA, we discover one more red hot sizzling pair on the roads of Budapest. Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon have arrived with a bang. The ‘IT’ couple of Bollywood infuses enough magic and boundless energy into the film that pulls us into their wonderland for next 2 hours. RAABTA means karmic connection and that explains the storyline revolving around reincarnation where boy-has-to-kill-the-villain in every birth to reunite…

BAYWATCH : A lost opportunity for Priyanka Chopra, Dwayne Johnson & Company

BAYWATCH : A lost opportunity for Priyanka Chopra, Dwayne Johnson And Company
June 3, 2017

If there is anything that nudges us to watch BAYWATCH, then it has to be our hugely talented Prima Donna, Priyanka Chopra, our latest export to Hollywood!!!! After a resounding success of crime series, QUANTICO, snapping up a major commercial Hollywood biggie seemed all too natural. But is garnering a meaty role in a frivolous spoof of a popular tele series of 90’s, a good-enough deal???? I doubt. But rest…

MERI PYAARI BINDU – It could have been one Helluva Mad Romantic Commedy

MERI PYAARI BINDU Review - A Spray of Mint Fresh Water in Scorching Summer
May 13, 2017

Trailers of MERI PYARI BINDU felt like a spray of mint fresh water in scorching summer. Hence 120 min film was going to be like dunking and drenching in the cool waters. Or so I thought would happen. But guess what; water ran out leaving us high and dry once again. Ayushmann Khurana and Pariniti Chopra’s quirky love story hangs between 1985-2015. And since it happens in Kolkata, even year…

BAHUBALI 2 : Kudos to S. S. Rajmouli For Widening Our Imagination

BAHUBALI 2 : Kudos to S. S. Rajmouli For Widening Our Imagination
April 29, 2017

They say curiosity kills the cat but we say, overhype almost killed our Kat (tappa)!!!! Understandably, BAHUBALI 2 is our homage to why, where and how Kattappa killed Bahubali (senior)…period. The epic blockbuster of 2015, BAHUBALI that created history at the ticket windows comes back with an even mightier and grander BAHUBALI 2, dubbed as mother-of-all-VFX-films (by Indian standards, I mean). By re-releasing BAHUBALI last week, the makers made sure…

Begum Jaan Review : It is not your average dose of weekend fun

Begum Jaan Review : It is not your average dose of weekend fun
April 15, 2017

“Aang loota sakte hai,Aangan nahi”; this one line gives away the entire plot of this period drama – Begum Jaan. Year 1947, India attains freedom but someone else loses her freedom to live in her own house. India is divided into 3 parts with Radcliff line-of-partition passing right through the centre of Madam, Vidya Balan’s brothel. Her fearless retaliation and high-pitched rebellion to save her dignity, and her dhanda against…

Phillauri Movie Review : Meet the Sweetest and Kindest ‘Ghost’ on Earth

Phillauri Movie Review : Meet the Sweetest and Kindest ‘Ghost’ on Earth
March 25, 2017

After critically acclaimed NH-10, PHILLAURI is Anushka Sharma’s second outing as an actor-producer. Rest assured, her experiment with an ‘innocent ghost’ leaves us with a wide smile instead of goose bumps. This simple village story is very Indian at heart. So whether you stay in Bhatinda or Birmingham, an average Indian and his janam patri/kundali are joined at the hip like conjoined twins since birth. It means, stars in the…

RANGOON Review - Hold it. Smell it. Savour it. But don't miss it!!
February 25, 2017

‘Everything is fair in love and war’, says Vishal Bharadwaj in RANGOON and we cannot agree more. This is a Vishal Bharadwaj film,so a few must-know facts beforehand- Be ready to expect the unexpected. VB films are no quickies.They are elaborate 3hr+ sagas. Bring along your brains and not popcorn. Similarities with Shakespeare classics are unmissable. Superstars actually turn into actors. Lastly,VB films are not a frivolous entertainment but a…

February 10, 2017

Imagine, Akshay Kumar, himself, as a (Movie) vending machine and almost every Friday, a colourful (movie) can is dispensed to his loyal followers. Green Can = Patriotism, Orange Can = Social Cause, Red Can = Action, Pink = Rom-Com etc etc. So accordingly, we are in for an Orange Can with a name, JOLLY LLB 2. JOLLY LLB 2 is a satirical take on Indian judiciary system in a classic…

Movie Review: KAABIL...Is it Kaabil enough to stand against Raaes?
January 27, 2017

The name says it all. KAABIL, that makes impossible into possible. Kudos to the director Sanjay Gupta and versatile actor, Hrithik Roshan for experimenting with a risqué role while deviating from the run-of-the-mill stories. Loosely inspired by a Hollywood film, KAABIL is our dramatized version of BLIND SAMURAI.A visually impaired brave heart taking on the evil system and turning ordinary situations into extraordinary ones with his exemplary courage and special…

RAEES – A True Blue SRK Film of the Year

January 26, 2017

” Main aa raha hoon” and how SRK enters with a solid BANG! Enough of being a boring gentleman, a-doctor-next-door, a goofy hero or friendly cameos. With RAEES, Shah Rukh means business Currently, RAEES may be the victim of controversies but honestly it deserves none. Neither does it overly glamorise any anti elements in the society nor does it justify any wrong doings. It just pleads to be watched in…

“xXx Return Of Xander Cage” Movie Review: Deepika Padukone, Vin Diesel Rocks

xXx Return Of Xander Cage Movie Review - Deepika Padukone Vin Diesel Rocks
January 15, 2017

Firstly, an honest confession, like every Bollywood-crazy Indian, I decided to watch xXx – RETURN OF XANDER CAGE (ROZC) purely for the super debut act of gorgeous Deepika Padukone in her premier Hollywood outing. Cheers !! But to my astonishment, it is Vin Diesel and Co, who have left me amazed with their ‘super-duper creativity’ and ‘business acumen’. I mean, how could you, sitting somewhere in Hollywood, visualize our Indian…

OK JAANU Movie Review – Old Wine in New Bottle

OK JAANU Movie Review - Old Wine in New Bottle
January 13, 2017

OK JAANU; screamed AR Rahman on our idiot boxes for past week. He gave serious complexes to all ‘jaanu s’of the world.   With a hit jodi of AASHIQUI-2, AR Rahman on board and a sensible director like Shaad Ali at the helm, OK JAANU could have been a runaway success. But to our dismay, the film swears by the mantra, ‘if-you-can’t-beat-them-than-join-them’. Simply put, the film adds to the statistics by…

DANGAL Review : Most Inspiring Biographical Film on Sports

Dear Aamir Khan, it is tiime you stop being a charlatan
December 23, 2016

Are Aamir Khan films beyond critical reviewing? Yes, I suppose. Well scripted, well documented and well executed, DANGAL can and will proudly enter the league of ‘most inspiring biographical film on sports’. DANGAL arouses such strong sentiments, that it ceases to be a film and becomes a lesson in life for each one in the audience. Such a strong social message (BE the change to MAKE a change) with high-octane…

Kahaani 2 Review – Vidya Balan’s Kahaani 2 is an engrossing film

Kahaani 2 Review - Vidya Balan's KAHAANI 2 is an engrossing film
December 2, 2016

Thank your stars that in the conundrum of mindless masala potboilers, a ‘meaningful’ and ‘intelligent’ cinema comes your way in the name of KAHAANI 2. Standing tall amidst the poor xerox copies and awful (Hollywood) adaptations, KAHAANI 2 is an intriguing and interesting film. It is mercifully devoid of any ‘formulaic’ trappings of Bollywood. In a way, KAHAANI 2 is not a sequel of runaway-hit KAHAANI (2013). Director, Sujoy Ghosh…

We are writing this open letter not to praise the one-man show presented by Alia Bhatt in the movie; or how Shinde ma’am yet again shook us out of stupor and made us independent, but this time emotionally.

Force 2 movie review has been a tricky affair for us. But for the stunning beauty of Hungary and the versatility of  Tahir Raj Bhasin, we would have given a complete thumbs down to this movie. The story line of Force 2 promises to be a great Friday treat for all those movie buffs who have been longing for John’s biceps, Sonakshi’s rustic charm and the pace of an action…

August 6, 2016

Check out the review of Budhia Singh – Born To Run from famous publications!! Review By : Saibal Chatterjee  For – NDTV Rating : 3.5/5 SPOILERS ALERT A Bollywood sports film is usually an awkward creature. It tends to be a loud, lumbering beast prone to melodramatic flab and excessive deification. Mercifully, first-time writer-director Soumendra Padhi’s Budhia Singh – Born to Run isn’t one. It is neither average Bollywood fare nor is…
