Ram-Leela

Review :- What new can a filmmaker do with William Shakespeare’s classic love-story Romeo and Juliet? The answer is, if you are Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who is technically sound and astute, you just become impudent, set the story in Gujarat, sign Bollywood’s currently best actress Deepika Padukone (Leela), team her up with ‘I’ve-got-fire-in-my-loins’ actor Ranveer Singh (Ram) and then let ...

Rajjo

Review :- She’s no ‘Pretty Woman’ walkin’ down the street. With trimmed hats, stilettos (higher than her dreams) or with a brazen billionaire to whisk her away into a fairytale of fantasies. She’s Rajjo (Kangna), the little girl who lost her childhood in an infamous kotha, in the dingy red-light ilaakas of the city. Although, she’s the Queen Bee (called ...

Satya 2

Review :- If you like your ‘truth’ bloodied, here it goes. This time RGV’s newly packaged don is of a different breed, but barely matches the ballsy bhaigiri of the original. Cut back fifteen years – when Ramu on creative Viagra, ripped open Mumbai’s ominous crime diaries for cinematic consumption. Tossing us into a dark, sinister world of lawless bhais, ...

Krrish 3

Review :- Evil doesn’t raise its ugly head anymore. It raises a finger. But then ‘Good’ flies too. In ‘Superhero’ form – Caped, masked, winged – with muscles of steel and hearts of gold. Our comic-book phirang fantasy boys have flown high as ‘Supermen’ in Hollywood epics for eons. In India, only one man with an audacious flight of imagination ...

Ishq Actually

Review :- Ishq Actually is not for those who know what they want from life. It’s for the overtly romantic types, who watch films, read poetry and hope to walk in the clouds. The protagonist Gia ( Neha Ahuja) falls in love with the idea of love, more than anything else, which explains her inability to make up her mind ...

Wake Up India

Review :- Given the gruesome rape cases that have occurred in recent past, Balatkar is too strong a word to be thrown around liberally, even if it’s done to expose the incompetency of our corrupt politicians. Barring that, the film has its heart in the right place. It manages to send out a strong message to unapproachable netas, who forget ...

Mickey Virus

Review :- We aren’t internet keedas here, but let’s try cracking into Mickey’s (Manish) world of codes, crypts and consoles. This one isn’t so deadly that we can’t decode, or so simple that we just download and ESC (read: escape). So, risk it and hit ENTER! The Delhi cops, headed by ACP Siddhanth (Chaudhari) and inspector Bhalla who can’t tell ...

Sooper Se Ooper

Review :- Sooper Se Ooper is a sweet-road-movie of sorts, where everyone’s chasing after something. Ranveer is chasing his mama, Kukreja and his sidekicks are chasing Ranveer, don Salim bhai (Tinu Anand) is chasing Kukreja and village belle Gulabo ( Kirti Kulhari), her dream of becoming a Bollywood actor. When all are not running around, they boast about Rajputana shaan ...

Shahid

Review :- You can escape a terror attack. You can fight terrorism. But what happens when you are branded a ‘Terrorist’ for life? On the grounds that your name reads ‘Zahir’, ‘Faheem’, ‘Khan’, ‘Shaikh’ (and not Matthew or Donald? God help!). Even if you’re acquitted, the right to live a life in fairness and dignity is permanently adjourned. Case closed! ...
