Movie review; Only God Forgives

The two main reasons I was so compelled to watch Only God Forgives so eagerly were the unanimity of the awful reviews it has been receiving all over both by the critics and the audiences and also because I loved Drive and the teaming up of Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling excited me even more. *This Review Contains Spoilers* ...

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is a biographical movie which is based on our one and only ‘Flying Sikh’: Mikha Singh. The film stars Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor and Meesha Safi. The movie is well written by ...

But once you’re inside the theatre, the noise level certainly compensates for the silence outside. The actors make their point by ...
