Review :- Whether it’s malls eating into the business of local baniyas, studios muscling out smaller films from the multiplexes or multiplexes pushing single screens out of the game, in the wake of independent businesses struggling to survive in big cities owing to corporate giants’ rising dominance, Sonali Cable comes at the most opportune time. However, the relevant premise (an ...

Haider

Review :- So, Haider is a brilliant adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet where a new character – Kashmir – joins the drama’s kings and queens. Vishal Bhardwaj’s Kashmir isn’t shikaras and Shammi Kapoor though. Set in 1995, amidst militancy and martial rule, this Kashmir is gray smoke and brown trees, frozen waters and fires glowing angrily on a lake. Dr. Hilal ...

Mad About Dance

Review : No Elvis this. Yet his thrusts have a lot of pelvis. He ‘locks’, ‘pops’ and ‘breaks’. He’s fast, smooth and footloose. The heart of this story rests on the dance floor, but dares to step out too. Aarav Anand’s (Saahil) life pirouettes on one big dream – he wants to join his idol Caesar’s dance group. With little ...
