Review; Gori Tere Pyaar Mein

2 hours 28 minutes. Yes, it’s long and if you are not one of those who can sit through a movie with too many unnecessary songs and cliched plot lines, stop reading right away. This movie isn’t for you! GTPM for me was two different films in one separated by an intermission that comes up after an excruciatingly long wait. ...

Review; Krrish 3

This is Bollywood throwback right there. A creaky family entertainer which in spite of its poor marketing actually turned out to be a pretty surprising affair for me. For long we had nothing real to answer to Hollywood’s super heroes. Most super hero films remind you of b-grade actors and c-grade special effects. Rakesh Roshan at-least tries. The Koi Mil ...

Review; Escape Plan

Escape Plan

Critics can pan the film all they want, but this is a sit-back-and-enjoy-the-ride thing. I am not a big fan of the legends as many of the people around are, but I refrain myself from judging movies based on the star-cast. Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are icons not because they entertained you with mindless action in the 80’s and ...

Movie Review; Warning 3D

Only Bollywood can do this. Rip-off a Hollywood movie scene to scene and don’t give any credits to the original what so ever. I wouldn’t curse the makers here because the film it completely rips-off didn’t even get a theatrical release. The direct to DVD venture Open Water 2 released in 2006 was about a group of people who meet ...

Review; Phata Poster Nikla Hero

Expectations were pretty high as Rajkumar Santoshi’s last – Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani with Ranbir & Katrina was a smashing HIT. But, the film did not live up to my expectations. Vishwas Rao (Shahid Kapoor) an aspiring actor, travels to Mumbai with the dream to make it big in the film industry, while his mother Savitri (Padmini Kolhapure) who ...

The Conjuring: “Don’t summon the devil, don’t call the priest …”

The problem with most modern horror films is that they’ve stopped trying to scare you; they want to gross you out instead with elaborate and explicit torture and gore thrown to the screen. I stopped watching horror movie after the point they made no sense to me. If you’ve been disappointed with the likes of Paranormal Activity and Insidious, this ...
