Chakravyuh

Review :– Chakravyuh‘s prologue tells you how the Naxalite movement is fast eating into our social fabric. Like most wars fought between the haves and have-nots, this one is being fought with the police (read administration) on the one hand and the Naxalites on the other – and it’s gained gargantuan proportions. Today, this movement is so wide-spread, India and ...

Janleva 555

Review :- Describing Janleva 555 is a tough task. It starts off as a film intended to spread awareness about the hazards of snake bites. However, what follows is simply unnecessary, overdose of singing and dancing, dated reincarnation drama, cheesy romance and over-the-top performances from the lead cast. Neelam (Kalpana Pandit) and her gang of aspiring filmmakers are deeply concerned ...

Student of the Year

Review :- It’s KJo-Wala Love! Served fresh and piping hot from the Dharma college canteen of romance. And it’s a high (class) school that you’d never want to miss a lecture of, ever. Except that it has its own set of Karan rules. Read the prospectus: 1. Leave your text-books at home but ensure you’re carrying your designer bags and ...

Prem Mayee

Review :- Prem Mayee is a good story gone wrong. The director seems as confused as his protagonist Payal (Shreya Narayan). Payal is an ambitious, intelligent, courageous girl, who assumes she knows what she wants in life. Payal loves Arun ( Chandrachur Singh). She also manages to achieve success in her career. The two get married but love takes a ...

Login

Review :- Login is not about social networking. It’s not even about how internet has disconnected our lives. It’s about the hazards of using the internet carelessly. Perpetually single, never been kissed geeky bachelor seeks a girlfriend online. He even finds her on the web but his happiness is short-lived. Her true identity forces him to face tragic consequences. A ...

Pairon Talle

Review :- It’s Dilli again. Minus Chandni Chowk and chaat, baraats and bhangra, lassi and ladkis. Not that there’s anything wrong with Delhi a few shades duller, but the film starts out on an interesting premise, and rolls onto the beaten track, riddled with characters and climaxes that are mediocre and mundane. Set in a ghostly abandoned mine, that has ...

English Vinglish

Review :- Shashi Godbole(Sridevi) is your average, upper-middle-class mother of two, whose special skills also include making ladoos. In fact, she’s so good in her sweetmeat that she even markets it. But one skill that Shashi lacks is speaking English. This makes her the constant butt of jokes and rebuttal with her husband ( Adil Hussain) and teenage daughter (Navika ...

Heroine

Review :- Multiple National-Award winning filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar takes vicarious pleasure in giving his audience a ring-side view of various walks of life. His Chandni Bar (2001) dealt with Mumbai dance-bars; Page-3 (2005) showed the shallow side of the media and celebrity circus. Fashion(2008) dealt with the seamier side of the fashion industry. And one must say here that in ...

Barfi

Review: He was born to a song playing on a Murphy radio, but this ‘Murphy’ baby (Ranbir) aka Barfi has a different law. Everything that has to go wrong will go wrong, but not if you brave it with a broad smiley. So ‘mute’ the high decibel chaos and deafening melodrama around and tune into Barfi ki duniya; which is ...

Riwayat

Review :- Riwayat opens with a shocking statistic – 100 million girls are missing around the world. They’re killed at birth or even before they’re born. That’s dramatic enough for a disturbing movie to be made. Only, it must be made well. This one shows the struggle of lawyer-plus-NGO worker Anita (Debnath, enthusiastic but saddled with few expressions and excessive ...
