Movie Review : Saala Khadoos

Posted: January 29, 2016

Saala Khadoos: It could have been better if it had been more Khadoos It is good to see a new trend in Bollywood of sports movies, especially woman oriented sports movies which off course was started with “Chak De India”.... But the problem is just having a concept and script of sports movie is not enough, it needs to have the soul at the right place, unfortunately after “Chak De India” none of the movies could create that impact, though “Mary Kom” had some positives... “Saala Khadoos” takes the concept of “Chak De India” but in BoxingContinue reading →

Wazir: Not too many thrills as a Thriller “Wazir” has a fantastic set up, a stellar cast of Amitabh Bachchan & Farhan Akhtar, a good concept and a fantastic set up to mount the movie…..but still “Wazir” makes you feel wanting for more after the movie is over…. The spark that Bijoy Nambiar showed us in “Shaitaan” is missing in “Wazir”….the concept was brilliant with a premise of a crippled Chess player Omkar Nath Dhar a.k.a Pandit ji (Amitabh Bachchan) who meets Danish Ali (Farhan Akhtar) a suspended ATS officer who has lost hisContinue reading →

Movie Review: Bajirao Mastani

Posted: December 19, 2015

Bajirao Mastani: Epic Love Story of Epic Proportion Sanjay Leela Bhansali movies are always larger than life both in scale and grandeur, with “Bajirao Mastani”, Sanjay Leela Bhansali outdid himself in scale, grandeur and histrionics… Technically this is Sanjay Leela Bhansali first political love story which is straight from history, and such subjects are like walking on tight rope where a slight slip tends to ruin the entire movie.

Posted: November 12, 2015

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo: It is only Salman’s Prem all the way Sooraj Barjatya has always been synonymous with good wholesome family entertainers, thriving on values and traditions of Indian society. The Indian audience whether in India or abroad has always lapped whatever Sooraj has offered, well excluding an exception of “Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon” wherein he diverted a bit and faced a lot of flak. Another highlight of Sooraj’s films has been its screenplays which stick to the basic premise of the story... Well “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”Continue reading →

Movie Review: Shandaar

Posted: October 24, 2015

Shandaar: No Story makes Shandaar a dull movie In Bollywood we have seen a trend in most of the cases wherein  a director after giving an immensely successful and path breaking movie gives a dud in his subsequent movie like Sujoy Ghosh after giving the spectacular “Jhankaar Beats” gave us “Home Delivery” , or Anurag Kashyap after giving the path breaking “Gangs Of Wasseypur 1 & 2” gave us “Bombay Velvet”, Vikramaditya Motwane after giving “Udaan” gave us “Lootera” and it is so true for Ram Gopal Varma who during his hey days used toContinue reading →

Posted: October 14, 2015

I had a friend for company whom I dragged to watch DDLJ as he was keener on Madhuri Dixit starrer “Yaraana” (also released on the same day) was sulking since “Yaraana” was showing in the adjacent theater. The poster was newly pasted and there was not too much of a crowd for 9:30 AM show. Who knew that this movie will make history…. It was a Shahrukh Khan- Kajol starrer who gaveContinue reading →

Movie Review: Jazbaa

Posted: October 10, 2015

Jazbaa: Not too much of Jazbaat.... but only style Sanjay Gupta, the name is synonym of movies which are remake of Hollywood and loads of style with a larger than life canvas but less of substance. The two movies which had both style and substance were “Kaante” (2002) & “Zinda” (2006)…. Sanjay Gupta is back with a remake of a Korean movie “Seven Days” for Aishwarya Rai’s comeback vehicle. Aishwaraya is in all the frames of the movie and not for a moment do you forget that this is Ash’s comeback movie. The plot tells the story ofContinue reading →

Posted: October 4, 2015

Singh Is Bliing: Nothing so Blingy, But Akshay Shines Akshay Kumar just like Govinda in the 90’s has created a niche in his kind of comedy and “Singh Is Bling” is a step forward to the same. Prabhu Deva & Akshay Kumar combo in their last outing “Rowdy Rathore” (2012) was a huge hit. This time Prabhu Deva takes the flavour of “Singh Is King” of an innocent Sardar, Raftaar Singh and mixes it with his kind of masala and presents “Singh Is Bling”. The premise primarily tells us the story of a good hearted but good for nothing Raftaar Singh Continue reading →

Movie Review : Calendar Girls

Katti Batti: Too much of Katti  & less of Batti makes it dull Love Stories has a come a long way in Bollywood, from rich girl falling for poor boy or rich boy falling for a poor girl and the opposition of the respective parents, to triangle love stories and at the end love triumphs against all odds.

Movie Review: Hero

Posted: September 13, 2015

Hero: Not so Heroic about this HERO In India when Star Kids are launched, their launch movies are like a talent showcase wherein the actors are presented like super heroes who can dance, do action, look the best in Hip clothes and flex muscles in case of a actor. Acting it seems is the last priority, and in this whole mayhem of showcasing their talent the story somewhere takes a back seat. I guess the last launch movie for a star kid which created a stir was “Kaho Na Pyar Hai” way back in 2000, after which none of the so called launchContinue reading →

Movie Review : Phantom

Posted: August 29, 2015

Phantom:  A Thriller I wish had more Punch Political Thrillers are Kabir Khan’s forte, what with his previous movies “Kabul Express” & “Ek Tha Tiger” both were of the same genre.

Movie Review: All Is Well

Posted: August 22, 2015

The expectations with “All Is Well”, Umesh’s second offering was high, though the movie has been in the making for a long time. “All Is well” is a typical family drama of a dysfunctional family of Mr Bhalla (Rishi Kapoor), his son Inder Bhalla (Abhishek Bachchan) and Inder’s mother Pammi Bhalla (Supriya Pathak), situation forces the family to get scattered, andContinue reading →

Movie Review : Bangistan

Posted: August 8, 2015

Bangistan: Too Lukewarm for a Bang Sometimes our film makers think that just having a different idea is enough to make a movie, but they forget that there is always a beginning, middle and a climax to a movie and all the three need to gel well to create the required impact. It is more difficult if it is satire. The issue with the Film Critic turned film maker Karan Anshuman’s debut venture is that the idea was good on paper but unfortunately the execution was far from being good. “Bangistan” takes forward the question asked in “PK”Continue reading →

Movie Review: Drishyam

Posted: August 1, 2015

Drishyam: A vision which creates an impact Remakes in Bollywood have been in vogue since the Black & White era. Some remakes have been apt, some better than the original and some a complete waste which makes you wonder why was the remake made in the first place. “Drishyam” , a remake of the Mohanlal starrer Malayalam film by the same name does not fit in any of the above categories, to some extent it does justice to the original but not entirely. Nevertheless it does create an impact. Based on the original story by Jeethu Joseph andContinue reading →

Movie Review: Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Posted: July 18, 2015

Bajrangi Bhaijaan: It is all about “Being Human" Salman Khan movies have been quintessential masala movies with punch lines, some item no.’s and lots of chaos in the name of story & screenplay where Salman is the sole selling point of the movie. And we often blame Salman for being repetitive. But with “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” he breaks his usual mould and he does it with élan. BB is far removed from Salman’s last few movies. It has got a story, it is subtle and Salman takes a break from his buffoonery and attempts to act in a much moreContinue reading →

Movie Review : Roy

Posted: February 14, 2015

Roy: No joy in this Roy It is good to see that story telling in Bollywood is changing and film makers are trying different subjects and different formats of storytelling. But being different does not mean that the entertainment quotient is missing or the pace needs to be slow. Vikramjit Singh the debutant director and writer of Roy completely loose the plot in being different.

Posted: January 30, 2015

Khamoshiyan: A Silence which is below average & equally amateurish The Bhatts have created a successful model of making profit making movie propositions and “Khamoshiyan” is one such attempt of combining erotica with horror with melodious music, a formula they have mastered since “Raaz” (2001). Written by Mahesh Bhatt’s protégé Vikram Bhatt “Khamoshiyan” is a lame attempt in the horror genre, which basically is a three character story of Kabir (Ali Fazal) a fallen writer who wants regain his glory and hence he heads to Kashmir inContinue reading →

Movie Review : Happy New Year

Posted: October 24, 2014

Happy New Year: Too many & too much spoil the New Year Big Star cast and big production value do not necessarily give you a GOOD movie; I guess Bollywood directors should realize this… “Happy New Year” is another such opportunity, but somehow falls short in the overall narration… Written by Farah Khan, Mayur Puri and Althea Kaushal “Happy New Year” is your Bollywood take on “Ocean’s Eleven” with the desi Bollywood tadka of Naach Gaana, Patriotism and over the top comic sequences.

Movie Review : Bang Bang

Daawat-E-Ishq: A undercooked story with tangy tadka of good performance For the last few movies YRF has painstakingly tried to break the mould of the quintessential YRF movie format and gone ahead in making movies which are based in smaller towns and stories which are more realistic and says the stories of the common man. “Daawat-E-Ishq” is on the similar lines with Habib Faisal, YRF’s in- house writer director. Habib’s previous movies like “Do Dooni Chaar” and “Ishaqzaade” explores the middle class and the small town sensibilitiesContinue reading →

But after watching “Creature” I felt that Vikram Bhatt has not really grown after his major hit in this genre “Raaz” in 2001.

Review Humshakals

Posted: June 20, 2014

Humshakals: Officially Declared Sajid Khan the “King Of Trash” Sajid Khan strikes back with his slap stick comedy genre with “Humshakals” but the problem is that there is not enough laughs to sustain 159 mins… So Sajid goes back to his “Housefull “ mould of European mansions, swanky cars, heroines wearing skimpiest costumes and too many characters who are a caricature. Sadly for “Humshakals” it falls flat and what we get is a trash in the name of comedy.Continue reading →

Review F*UGLY

F*UGLY: A Half Baked Attempt of a good concept F*UGLY, the name seems unusual and hatke, I kept wondering what it really meant, well the beginning credits clarifies the same; it meant “FIGHT AGAINST INJUSTICE”. The hatke quotient stops in the name itself. So Fugly delves in the latest trend of exploring our Capital Delhi. The story is of 5 friends, Dev (debutant Mohit Marwah), Devi (debutant Kiara Advani), Gaurav (Boxer Vijendra Singh) and Aditya alias Haggu (Arfi Lamba), who lead a chilled and care free life. In one incident wherein DeviContinue reading →

Posted: May 24, 2014

Kochadaiyaan: A complete Rajni Masala Entertainer in animation Kochadaiyaan is India’s first movie made on the technology of Motion Capture, a technique used in Hollywood movies like Avatar, Tintin & Bewoulf. Do not expect the finesse like its Hollywood counterpart, but the attempt is worth an applaud for the director Soundarya Rajnikanth Ashwin. Having Super Star Rajnikanth was enough to make the movie a blockbuster but taking a path which was not explored in Bollywood and more so animation movies are not taken seriously in India, for Continue reading →

Movie Review Heropanti

Heropanti : A well designed Launch Vehicle for Tiger Shroff On the onset let me set the expectations that Heropanti is no classic and is a complete launch vehicle for Tiger Shroff. The story and script written by Sanjeev Dutta is primarily focusing on the main protagonist played by Tiger. Heropanti is a quintessential love story of a rich girl Dimpy played by Kriti Sanon and a middle class guy Babloo played by Tiger Shroff. The screenplay is very smartly designed so that there are enough opportunities for histrionics, action and dance forContinue reading →

Movie Review : The Xpose

Posted: May 16, 2014

The Xpose: Too much Xpose of nothing The Xpose claims to be inspired by true incidents from Bollywood of the 60’s. Anant Mahadevan tries to re-create the magic of 60’s through a murder mystery. The main issue of the movie is the plot and story which is hackneyed and predictable which is a curse for a murder mystery and it is credited to none other than Himesh Reshamiya (Gawd first Music, then acting and now writing). Himesh Reshamiya and Jainesh Ejardar ‘s screenplay is just a mish mash of headline stories of Bollywood gossip columnsContinue reading →

Movie Review : Manjunath

Posted: May 10, 2014

Manjunath: A Real Life Saga which fails to inspire on celluloid It is not easy to adapt a real life incident and make it into a full blown 2 hour saga on celluloid. Director & Writer Sandeep Varma’s motive to make “Manjunath” was to bring the story of unsung hero Manjunath Shanmugham ,a 27 year old IIM, Lucknow pass out who was killed by Oil mafia in UP as he was exposing the racket of oil adulteration in 2005. Sandeep’s intentions are novel but fails badly due to a non cohesive screenplay and shoddy narration. The screenplayContinue reading →

Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobara: Not as impactful as the first part Milan Luthria has a fascination for 70’s & 80’s, and it shows in his last two movies “Once upon A Time in Mumbai”, “The Dirty Picture” and now “Once upon A Time in Mumbai Dobara”. The first part was an out and out gangster flick wherein it showed Mumbai in the 70’s when mafia was emerging and Sultan (Ajay Devgan) was ruling the city until Shoaib (then played by Imraan Hashmi) his protégé ditches him and takes control of the mafia of Mumbai (then Bombay) and flees toContinue reading →

Review : Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

Posted: July 14, 2013

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag: An Epic Saga but a notch low for a classic On the onset it is very difficult to make a biopic, and if the person is alive then it becomes more difficult as comparisons and speculations start building up. Such movies sometimes become more of a documentary on the achievements of the person on which the biopic is being made. Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra & writer Prasoon Joshi have been successful in telling a story with a lot of conviction and with equal amount of entertainment value. Rather they create an epicContinue reading →

Midnight’s Children: A Rich Dish with all the ingredients but with an average taste   On the onset I salute Deepa Mehta for taking the risk of adapting a complex novel of Salman Rushdie “Midnight’s Children” into a movie. The story spans from 1917 Kashmir to 1977 Mumbai, and tells the story of two children one born to a rich family and other to a poor family on the stroke of midnight of 15th Aug 1947, when India got independence. How their destiny changes after they are swapped, the son of the rich is swapped with the son of theContinue reading →

Review : Gangs Of Wasseypur

Anurag Kashyap’s Saga on the coal mafia of Dhanbad can be summed as a cult movie in this genre. The story is of the rivalry between Sardar Khan (Manoj Bajpayee) and Ramadhir Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia) and commences pre independence and gives a complete low down as to how the coal mafia emerged. The Story by Zeishan Quadri is a basic Revenge Drama, but the screenplay is the biggest highlight which is very well written and each character is well defined, and the sub plots seamlessly merge with the main plot. The screenplay is tight and there Continue reading →

Review : Hugo

Posted: May 6, 2012
