Review :- Chor Police anyone? We’ve all played the game. But here comes a new twisted tale to show us that there ain’t nothing like a good cop or bad cop. A cop is a cop. That sets the premise for this fast-paced police-drama, filled with bad boys and some good fellas. Shetty (Prakash Raj) is Mumbai’s biggest bhai, owning ...

Inkaar

Review :- You know those cakes that look gorgeous in pictures but collapse when they bake? Inkaar is like that. Polished-looking, its edges – the tension of feeling harassed at work, office politics, ego flashes – hold rather well. But its centre collapses in a soft mess. Featuring advertising hot-shots Rahul (Rampal) and Maya (Singh), Inkaar shows the heat and ...

Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola

Movie Review :- Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola (MKBKM) mirrors the dangers of self-indulgence – of texting and ghee, alcohol and directorial profligacy.

Review :- A Table for two, please? With a stunning view of the Fiji islands, the finest champagne, exclusive service and a lavish 8-course meal. And guess what? It costs absolutely nothing. Now, before you growl with greed, let’s see what’s on the menu – blood and bravado, love and lies, truth and treachery, money and mind-games. Vivaan (Rajeev Khandelwal) ...

Full of suppressed anger, unwilling to disclose anything about ...

Dehraadun Diary

Review :- Once again, the common man is left asking for tareekh pe tareekh. Women are forced to play ‘Daminis’, and men turn into rakhwalas of the world. Sadly, in this movie, Damini remains a damsel-in-distress, and the rakhwalas lack the power of dhai kilo ka haath (read: Sunny Deol). It’s the story of super-rich and powerful v/s the aam ...
