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 ...

Ragini MMmmmmmmmmS 2

I came out of the film trying to forget whatever I had seen. Riding fast to get back home so that I could put on my headphone and listen to something soothing, I noticed a drunken man vomiting on the roadside, strangely so I was reminded of the atrocity I had just witnessed on the 70 MM screen.

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 ...

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 ...
