“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? ...

Review; Lone Survivor

A lot of movie buffs curse Peter Berg for giving us a bad film ‘Battleship’, and I totally agree with them. But, when you get to the bottom of it you will know that he made Battleship just for the money , the money he invested in making Lone Survivor. Lone Survivor is essentially about four US Navy Seals who get ...

Movie review; One By Two

Mandela: A Long Walk To Freedom

I can’t imagine spending one day in prison, Mr. Mandela spent 20 years. Directed by  Justin Chadwick and starring Idris Elba, Naomie Harris, this is fantastic movie if you talk about the performances. I had it coming that Idris Elba would nail it as Nelson Mandela and he does knock this one out of the park with his incredible performance. ...
