Bajrangi Bhaijaan

REVIEW : So, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is Salman Khan’s most daring film where Salman presents a beautiful performance – but allows the story to be the real dabangg. Pawan (Salman) aka ‘Bajrangi’ is a devout Shri Hanuman bhakt who meets a speech-impaired child (Harshaali) wandering alone, hungry and silent. Bajrangi decides to help the child, whom he calls Munni, return to ...

Black Home

Review :- Director Ashish Deo’s social drama is quite disturbing as it brings to light, gory details of the extreme torture young girls are forced to put up with at Rajawadi remand home, which is actually meant to reform them. The girls get beaten up, raped, sold, forced into flesh trade, starved to death, sexually assaulted by paedophile politicians and ...

Dirty Politics

Review :- A hybrid of political drama and murder mystery, Dirty Politics is a warped tale. Despite flaunting a convoy of seasoned actors, the film fails to hold up its promising premise. The script’s most potent part is the sex scandal but the writer introduces an array of meaningless sub-plots which dilutes it. Had the story systematically unraveled its myriad ...

Qissa: The Tale Of A Lonely Ghost

MSG: The Messenger

Review :- MSG is an indescribable mind-numbing experience. It’s so unapologetic in nature that it renders you speechless. As you watch the saint revel in his fantasy-filled heroics for over three hours, strutting in atrocious clothing and modified cars, you are appalled by his narcissism. Yet, for some strange reason, you choose to tolerate his self-indulgence, hoping to decode his ...

Shamitabh

Review :- So, Shamitabh has a lovely concept – a boy falls in love with the movies and dreams of becoming a star. He has pizzazz, passion, presence – but no voice. Daanish (Dhanush) is born mute, his soul, like the film-mad lad of Cinema Paradiso, finding utterance with movies, Igatpuri’s bus conductor (rather like a certain Rajini Sir) determined ...

Hawaizaada

Review :- The makers of Hawaizaada are prudent to tell you that this is a work of fiction, though the material at hand is sourced from the life of Marathi scientist Shivkar Talpade, who constructed and flew India’s first plane in 1895. The film unfolds in the Bombay Presidency, where Shivi (Ayushmann) – having failed the fourth grade eight-times-over – ...
