I can’t imagine spending one day in prison, Mr. Mandela spent 20 years.

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. ...

Aap thank you mat boliye instead teen logo ki madat kijiye aur unse kahiye ki wo agle teen logo ki madat kare’ The idea was used so many times in the movie that I got inspired – I thought that when I kiss my girlfriend and if she says ‘thank you’ then I’ go; “Don’t thank me instead tum teen ...

Vroom, Vroom, Dhoom 3

Bikes, Babes and Robberies. Dhoom is back for the 3rd freaking time. And it’s a joke until the intermission sign comes up. I was waiting for the movie to introduce the characters a bit more swiftly but what I got was an over-exaggeration of everything there is. So what if the film is set in the west (Chicago)? It’s Bollywood we ...
