The Dirty Picture

Review:- All she had was her well endowed body, her in-your-face sexuality, her seductive moves and her rock hard confidence to carry her through a world that was more than willing to exploit a lone woman, seeking sustenance in a man’s world.

Desi Boyz

Review :- It’s the crackling chemistry between John Abraham and Akshay Kumar which makes Desi Boyz such a fun film.

Aarakshan

Review :- Filmmaker Prakash Jha is a breed apart. Beginning as a premier proponent of India’s parallel cinema movement in the 1970s-1980s, he never chose to lose his moorings. Instead, he opted to increase the contours of his canvas by opting for a kind of cinema that combined art with mainstream, meaning with masala. Hence the importance of films like ...
