Review : Queen

It’s seldom in Bollywood that a film starts off being all sad and depressing from the word go and slowly and beautifully brings a smile on your face that doesn’t stay the same but grows bigger and bigger by the time it ends. Queen is a gem of a movie. Maybe, one of the best female centered films ever made ...

Review; 300: Rise Of An Empire

Heaving seas and roiling ships, 300: Rise Of An Empire takes the sea exit to rise the male testosterone level instead of the foot fighting much like Leonidas and the brave 300 who in spite of knowing that they are going to face a certain death fought like brave men and fell for their glory and Sparta. They did dine ...

With True Detective airing right now, Matthew McConaughey is having a great time doing what he loves – Act his heart out.

Shaadi Ke side Effects; Review

*The review may or may not contain minor spoilers* Do you remember the 2006 film Pyaar Ke Side Effects starring Rahul Bose and Mallika Sherawat? I’d loved it to the core. Even though it lost some steam in the later 2nd half it was fun and hilarious. 8 years later we finally have a sort of sequel from the Balaji ...

Movie Review; Non-Stop

If you have seen the trailer of Non-Stop you would have perhaps concluded that it is a fast-paced mystery thriller with jam packed action. Let me clear it at the outset that the film does not have ample action but it does have a mystery quotient to it that will keep you glued to your seat till the end. Even ...

“Being sexy is in my genes” – Randeep

Her first film was a dream debut – a film with Dharma Productions that managed to score big at the box office. It’s none other than the gorgeous Alia Bhatt whose second film is a complete contrast to the glimmer and shine of ‘Student of the Year’. On a nippy Mumbai afternoon, Alia Bhatt looks like a teenager in an ...

Movie Review; “Her”

Picture this, Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansen in bed, getting steamy. I’m sure that’s a scene that would raise several eye brows and many would even wonder how the censor board allowed it to be played in India in the first place. But wait! It’s not what it sounds like. Or rather, it’s just the sounds and no visuals. That’s ...

Review; RoboCop

So I don’t know where to start and where to end this, since the fans of the original will shit all over what I say. But, as I haven’t seen the original I think I am entitled to my own opinion on the RoboCop movie. RoboCop is basically the story of Detective Alex Murphy (Joek Kinnaman), who gets critically injured ...

Review; Gunday

Remember the early 90’s show ‘Baywatch’ where models who couldn’t act would randomly run on the beach saving lives? Gunday reminded me of it but in an awful manner. Instead of saving lives, these Gundas here are sometimes running for their lives, sometimes for their work but mostly for no reason at all Are you a big slo-mo action fan? ...
