Humshakals

Review :- A lovely line in Humshakals – “Why’re you making it so aaabvious?” – exemplifies the film. Humshakals features an odd balance between brilliant jokes, followed by a pajama party of PJs. Ashok (Khan) is a London billionaire whose day job is “business umpire sambhalna” but who does cringe-worthy comedy which even his buddy Kumar (Deshmukh) can’t bear. Fortunately, ...

Review :- Razor-wielding Munna Supari (Deepak Dobriyal) aspires to be a well-known henchman of a crime lord.

All hell breaks loose when the crooks are charged with the murder of an MLA – ...

Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi

Review :- Here’s a dosti-yaari story packaged and dished out in pure Dilli dhaaba-style – with local tadka (no extra toppings). With a young, fresh star-cast – minus frills and fanfare. No mundas baring bronzed six-pack bods or gori mundis dancing to disco bhangra, ‘Yo-Yo’ style (Hadippa!). It’s as simple as aloo paratha with lassi. Gettit? Meet Kuku Mathur (Siddharth) ...

Main Tera Hero

Review :- Main Tera Hero (MTH) is a glittering vehicle for star son Varun Dhawan to drive, which he does with practiced panache. However, even more than Junior, MTH has his dad David Dhawan stamped all over it. Hence, eternally smiling Seenu (Varun) is unfazed by failure or goons. Seenu pauses from cheeky grinning only to dance and romance, falling ...

O Teri

Review :- PP (Samrat) and his buddy Anand Ishwarwam Devdutt Subramanium, aka (groan) AIDS (Amrohi) are two DYTs (dumb young things) lost in the cut-throat world of TV reporting. With their pushy boss Monsoon (Dias) unimpressed by their lame efforts, the guys are desperate to find a big political scam to expose. Their wish is fulfilled when corrupt politician Khwaja ...

Gang of Ghosts

Review :- Satish Kaushik’s Gang of Ghosts is a remake of the Bengali social satire, Bhooter Bhabishyat (2012). So as such, the plot that comments on how land-grabbing sharks in cities like Mumbai have torn down beautiful bungalows and breathing spaces to accommodate ugly malls and modern monstrosities is convincing. The narrative in-film style is entertaining, told as it is ...

Mr Joe B. Carvalho

Review :- Hell breaks loose throughout the duration of debutant film director Samir Tewari’s Mr Joe B Carvalho because there’s a daft detective (Arshad Warsi), an eloped heiress (Geeta Basra), some crazy assassins (Jaaved Jafferi, Vijay Raaz, Vrajesh Hirjee), some incompetent cops headed by Soha Ali Khan and God alone who else, chasing one another’s tail in madcap situations set ...

Lucky Kabootar

Review :- Consider yourself ‘unlucky’, if you are made to sit through this film, which boasts of a bizarre love quadrangle and ‘how to become a Crorepati’ side story. To begin with, the title has absolutely no relevance to the film. There is no defined storyline whatsoever. However, the same can’t be said about the film’s poster, (if you happen ...

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 ...
