Lucknow Central Review : Farhan Akhtar’s jail break is a one time watch

Lucknow Central Review : Farhan Akhtar's jail break is a one time watch
September 16, 2017

A Farhan Akhtar film is never a frivolous entertainment. Carving a niche` for himself with subject-oriented films, LUCKNOW CENTRAL is his latest attempt, woven around musical notes and musicians. The only hitch is, these compulsive-musicians are hardcore criminals lodged in Lucknow central jail. A jail- break story is not uncommon in Bollywood but here it is presented with a twist. Crisp narration, excellent background score, fabulous cinematography and a blissful…

A Gentleman Review : Avoid this Sunder, Susheel and Risky Gentleman

A GENTLEMAN Review
August 26, 2017

To me,the tagline of ‘A GENTLEMAN’ : Sunder, Susheel , Risky’….. sounds like description of some bra- burning feminist in matrimonial advertisement. But here we are talking about too-hot-to-handle Siddharth Malhotra in a dual role of a sunder and risky gentleman. Susheel Gaurav is a typical take-home-to-mom guy that every girl would like to marry. His ultimate dream in life is to settle down with a sunder girl and play…

Bareilly Ki Barfi : a tempting family entertainer
August 18, 2017

Looks like, Bollywood has finally cracked the formula for sleeper-hits. Make a Desi film with Desi characters on a Desi location 😊. Bareilly Ki Barfi is one such formula. After Bareilly ka Jhumka and Bareilly ka Thumka, comes Bareilly Ki Barfi. Made by Ashwini Iyer Tiwari of critically acclaimed ‘NIL BATTEY SANNATA’ and written by ‘DANGAL’ director, Nitish Tiwari, BAREILLY KI BARFI rides on high hopes and is officially a desi-adaptation…

Toilet Ek Prem Katha Review : Akshay & Bhumi rocks in hilarious comedy
August 11, 2017

Whoever thought that a love story could be woven around a ‘commode’!! Let us give the due credit to the ‘constipated’ gang of PIKU for starting this trend of ‘Pot(ty) boilers’ 😊😊. Are we lapping it up? Yes, because, in secret, we all have loved toilet humour 😉. Toilet Ek Prem Katha – A brave attempt Jokes aside, but Akshay & team should be lauded for taking up the cudgels…

Jab Harry Met Sejal : watch picturesque journey of Shah Rukh Khan & Anushka Sharma

Jab Harry Met Sejal : watch picturesque journey of Shah Rukh Khan & Anushka Sharma
August 5, 2017

Imtiaz Ali films have a special corner reserved in my heart. His loyal audience, like me, are urban nomads who take vicarious pleasure in this virtual cinematic tour that travels through winding roads, cobbled streets, crowded bazaars, pulsating cities and bustling squares with unknown stranger, so enjoy the journey and forget the destination!!! JAB HARRY MET SEJAL is one such travelogue that moves at a leisurely pace with one country…

Jagga Jasoos : Ranbir Kapoor & Anurag Basu takes you on a magical journey
July 14, 2017

JAGGA JASOOS is in the making for 4 long years when the current films are wound up in 4 months flat. And so we want to believe that it has matured into some fine vintage wine, in the meantime. Also, let’s not forget that we have been merrily drunk earlier on the potent cocktail of BARFI, a super-combo of intense Ranbir Kapoor and creative Anurag Basu. No guesses that I…

TUBELIGHT : Salman Khan is here to melt your heart once again

Tubelight review. Salman Khan steals the show.
June 24, 2017

Anyone for BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN- 2 ? Well, one won’t be blamed for searching similarities in TUBELIGHT. With powerful actor-director jodi at the helm, TUBELIGHT opens to gargantuan public expectation. Kabir Khan, a director par excellence has always made politically correct films. Films which are diplomatic enough to dodge the sensitive topic. But powerful enough to send the right message across the society. If BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN preached “Love can conquer boundaries”;…

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…

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…

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.

November 19, 2016

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…
