R… Rajkumar

Review :- He rips, he roars, he rages. He rides roughshod. Like a lovelorn ‘Rambo’, he rolls his ‘R’s. He’s the riotous R…Rajkumar (R for Romeo!). Once again, a rebellious and raving hero jumps out of Prabhu Dheva’s story – loaded with gaon-full of goons, buffoons, ‘item’ chhoris, less ‘silence’ and unstoppable violence. ‘RR’ (Shahid) lands in Dhartipur, with his ...

Bullett Raja

Review :- Straight up, Bullett Raja (BR) is zany and funny, an Uttar Pradesh take on Sholay’s Jai and Veeru, ‘twice-born’ in Lucknow as Raja Mishra (Khan) and Rudra Pratap (Shergill). Educated Raja and Rudra are reluctant gangsters, turned by violent, caste-ridden UP politics into what political advisor Srivastava (who Skypes from jail) calls “political commandos.” These ‘commandos’ work at ...

Boss

Review :- ‘Apne ko kya hai, apne ko toh bus paani nikalna hain‘ is Boss Akshay’s punch line in the movie. If you rephrase it a little with ‘Apne ko toh bus Akshay Kumar ka stunts dekhna hai‘, then Boss is a ‘kick-ass’ entertainer. After all, we all know who the Boss of action in Bollywood is. A remake of ...

Warning 3D

Review :- They were seven and half (a baby, plus a dog) of them at the high seas. With their complex love stories, ex-affairs, phobias and fears. All trying to find an anchor, submerged neck-deep in water. Estranged school-friends reunite in Fiji (yet again) on a yatch, supposedly owned by Bakshi (Santosh), the one amongst them who seems to have ...

Zanjeer

Review :- Apoorva Lakhia’s Zanjeer has many similarities to its four-decade old namesake Prakash Mehra’s Zanjeer (1973) that breathed fire and brimstone. The original film earned Amitabh Bachchan the epithet ‘angry young man’ and made him world-famous. The 2013 action thriller brings Andhra icon Chiranjeevi’s son, Ram Charan (also an Andhra superstar) to Bollywood. It retains the key plot points ...

Chennai Express

Review :- In an ode to his own cinema—read Golmaal series, Bol Bachchan, Rohit Shetty ishstyle, the director, who has grossers in Bollywood’s 100-crore club, ups the scale for his Eid offering. Chennai Express (CE) is a magnificently mounted film. Never having been strong in the story department, CE too has a guillible plot line. Rahul ( Shah Rukh Khan) ...

Policegiri

Review :- If you are a fan of Rajinikanth’s over-the-top action, if films like Wanted, Dabangg and Singham entertain you and if you like Sanju baba’s style, Policegiri is bound to make you whistle. Clearly catering to the masses and fans of masala potboilers, this Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster Saamy (2003) has all the right ingredients, required to appeal ...

Beehad -The Ravines

Review :- Beehad attempts to present the story of the dreaded dacoits of the Chambal Valley during the time they looted and pillaged the land along the Beehad River Valley and roamed unchallenged. However, the actors seem to think that ‘intensity’ means ‘to constantly shout out your dialogues’. The acting is over-the-top and as for the song interludes, the less ...
