Bheja Fry is worth many trips to the multiplex!

Movie Review: Bheja Fry It’s slick, neat and clean. Above all, it lives up to its name—Bheja Fry. As in you don’t come out of the theatre with your brains in a mess, but rather grinning at a comedy well made. There is a plot and a sub-plot and the scenes are woven, one into another with finesse, which highlights […]

Art-house cinema at its best

Movie Review: Miss Lovely Miss Lovely is art-house cinema at its best. Dark, deceitful and diabolic. The movie ventures into the commercial world of sex, X-rated movies and the business behind it. Set in the late 1980s, the mood is retro, the sets surreal and performances in a league of their own. It’s very real. You can almost feel the […]

Go, find out the truth for yourself

Movie Review: Talaash Talaash engages you in every scene. Like the protagonist, it keeps you alert at all times looking for clues to solve the mystery. It gives you a feeling that you have almost cracked the crime… almost. But when the mystery is revealed, you are as shocked as inspector Surjan Singh Sekhawat (Aamir Khan). Dumbfounded would be an […]

When Manjhi turned a mountain into a molehill!

Movie Review: Manjhi Only one thing comes to mind after watching Ketan Mehta’s biopic on the late Dasrath Manjhi, the man from Bihar who turned a mountain into a molehill—a lesser actor would have crumbled under the weight of this character. But not Nawazuddin Siddiqui; he stands tall to deliver a powerful impersonation of the man who labored for love’s […]

Bhai fans out for a real KICK!!!

Movie Review: Kick The movie actually begins when Devi Lal Singh and Devil, both slice through Dr Shaina and Himanshu on a Poland street asking for directions to a doctor’s clinic. Yes, Sajid Nadiadwala takes this much time to get the action rolling in Kick. Immediately after this scene, the words I N T E R V A L flashes […]

One helluva Kahaani!

Movie Review: Kahaani Kahaani is a thriller which you just cannot miss. Sujoy Ghosh goes about unraveling the mystery of Vidya Bagchi’s (Vidya Balan) missing husband with such neat detailing that the trump card he reveals in the end is like a swift blow to the Solar Plexus. It catches you unawares and leaves you short of breath. Stupendous! Take […]

Goliyon ki Baraat!

Movie Review: Bullett Raja Tigmanshu Dhulia is getting bolder and louder. Bolder, in the sense that he is trying to please the masses, louder in his characterization of his main protagonists. What he has achieved so far has been commendable. In Bollywood, he has carved a niche for himself with his brand of cinema. Somewhere, I guess he is getting […]

Edge-of-the-seat thriller!

Movie Review: Mardaani My word! Mardaani is a must watch. It’s an edge-of-the-seat thriller that catapults you right into the middle of the plot. The execution is near flawless and it takes you a while to realize that this is a film on child trafficking. Pradeep Sarkar begins with the finesse he is known for and before you know it, […]

Force is action packed

Movie Review: Force This one is not for the faint-hearted. It leaves a bloody trail throughout and has an ending unlike the typical Bollywood flick. There’s Force and more force. Yes, it’s very forceful. It begins with John Abraham forcefully pumping to pulp a few baddies when a consignment deal goes wrong. He tries in vain to get rid of […]

The flavour of youth!

Movie Review: Youngistaan We have seen a lot many film on politics; but most of it, nay all of them, are loaded with blood and gore. Not Youngistaan; Vashu Bhagnani’s Silver Jubilee production is full of the flavor of youth and the mood of the moment. The writers have spun a neat tale around the love story of the son […]

A romantic comedy!

Movie Review: Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya This one is an unusual love story. What sets the curiosity meter ticking is whether the now married couple’s on-screen chemistry works. It does. This movie was shot while Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza (now Deshmukh) were courting, or rather when they had made it known that they were actually in love and not […]

Let the music play on…

Movie Review: Jashn  There are no stars in this film; the script is the biggest winner. It’s a rare story, adapted to today’s times and told with immense sensitivity. At the centre is the sublime story of a brother and his love for his sister; of a sister’s responsibility towards her kid brother who harbors a dream of one day […]

This movie is Pure Magic!

Movie Review: Rock On Guess what, I’m going to watch this movie again. And maybe, a third time, too! Excel Entertainment excels yet again. With Rock On, the team of Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani are spot on. The movie has a Hollywood feel; the casting is just perfect, every character is given due importance, the music is way above […]
