Review: Arrow

India has no dearth of superhumans on screen, from the Rowdy Rathore that can bounce human flesh on solid ground, to Chulbul Pandey whose super power mostly involves touching, or thrusting his pelvic region– vigorously. But sadly the USA is not blessed with such beings, and perhaps this is why they think it is significant to make serials on superheroes ...

Television Without Pity: True Detective Review

First things first, for the people who are wondering why am I writing a write-up this late can hold their horses, because I like to see if something I have seen leaves an impact, does it make me miss it and does it make me think about it every now and then. Thankfully so with an heavy heart I say: ...

Movie Review : Revolver Rani

Revolver Rani is a Tarantino–esque satire that could have been one but instead comes out as a wannabe Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino-ish revenge saga that is more weird then being awesome. The film is a typical and probably the closest any Indian movie has ever been to present sly humor. He has presented us with a dish that was ...

Movie Review: Oculus

The horror industry can be perfectly compared to a zombie. It died a while ago and now it has come back to life but somethings different, It’s smellier, slower and moan-ier, But you can clearly see that it is in fact NOT DEAD. After a slew of James Wan films to complete the resurgence of the genre, we now have Oculus, ...

Movie Review : 2 States

While reading Chetan Bhagat’s ‘2 States’ the only thing that kept striking my mind was the fact that this book would someday be adapted into another masala movie which we would waste our money on. Even though I was not exactly pleased with the dramatic book, I somehow lasted till the end. For all those who have read the novel, ...

Review : Bhootnath Returns

Little guy Akhrot (Parth Bhalerao), a street smart lad who can see Bhoothnath due to some ‘techincal galti’ of the ‘Bhoot World’ exclaims: “India mein trailer hit to picture superhit” I think the vice-versa works for Bhoothnath returns. While the trailer to the sequel of Bhoothnath (2008) wasn’t actually great, the film turned out to be an absolute treat. Kailash ...

Captain America – The Winter Soldier Review.

A very few people saw the origin story of the First Avenger. Of the very few who saw it, only a bunch of them liked it and a handful of them loathed it for being boring and dull. I saw the first film recently as I was one of those who actually missed it. Having seen The Winter Soldier now, ...

Main Tera Hero

I have been a huge David Dhawan and Govinda fan for as long as I can remember. I have grown up watching the same old cliched and predictable stories that included love triangles, winning the dad over, rich girl poor boy love stories and even the No. 1’s he made with the comedy king of 90’s. I never complained, even ...

Youngistaan

I will praise Syed Ahmad Afzal for presenting this film when Lok Sabha elections are around the corner. There are many familiar events and political figures which pop up throughout the film, lightly fictionalised, yet recognizable. Real smart of him right? Only, his film isn’t. The premise sounds interesting. We all have seen and loved S. Shankar’s ‘Nayak’. Running very ...

Ankhon Dekhi

Imagine a man who says he believes in things only if he had seen them through his own eyes? Would you consider him insane? Or, you would try watching the world through his eyes slowly believing in his ideas and beliefs? I have seen Ankhon Dekhi with my ‘own eyes’ and I can assure you that it’s a brilliant little ...
