Machhli Jal Ki Rani Hai

Review :- Ayesha (Swara Bhaskar) and Uday (Bhanu Uday) relocate to Jabalpur from Mumbai after Uday takes up a job there. They are put up at a spacious guest house in a deserted location. In no time, Ayesha senses a mysterious presence in the house. Nightmares, hallucinations, creepy noises, paranormal occurrences and shadows start plaguing her. Scared for her family, ...

F*ugly

Review :- There’s a line in F*ugly which mirrors the movie beautifully – “Apne aap ko bara James Bond samajhta hai.” All through its tight run-time, F*ugly struts around with the awareness of being edgy – but falls off the edge. F*ugly had sharp potential – a dramatic story, a fresh cast, a velveteen character actor and gritty city Delhi. ...

Chal Bhaag

Review :- Razor-wielding Munna Supari (Deepak Dobriyal) aspires to be a well-known henchman of a crime lord. Angry young man Daler Singh (Varun Mehra) is a no-nonsense guy, madly in love with Kajari (Keeya Khanna), pickpocket Bunty (Tarun Bajaj) is happy doing his thing. All hell breaks loose when the crooks are charged with the murder of an MLA – ...

Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty

Review :- Gagged men tumble out of his closet. Tied up terrorists and ‘sleeper cells’ too. Hell’s bells, they’re far from ‘sleeping beauties’. But then they have to make our brave-heart Virat Bakshi (Akshay) look good. And he sure does. In his camouflage suits and his neon bermudas. Whether he’s on a secret mission (as Defence Intelligence Agent), or romancing ...

Filmistaan

Review :- In a nutshell – SRK, Salman and company rule Pakistan. If not the ‘sarzameen‘, then definitely their hearts and souls. Such is the crossover power of Bollywood. This movie dares to go to ‘no man’s’ land, in between the physical and emotional boundaries that bind two great nations that politics tears apart with hatred. A place where only ...

Citylights

Review :- So, Citylights is based on Sean Ellis’ acclaimed Metro Manila, but it also unlocks the doors to other movies in your mind. This is both a strength and drawback for this remarkable film. Deepak Singh (Rao) loses his village shop to debt and migrates to Mumbai with wife Rakhi (Patraleka) and child Mahi for a new start, ostensibly ...

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) ...

Hawaa Hawaai

Review :- Even slumdogs have dreams bundled away in their crumbling chawls, beneath piles of garbage and atop roofless homes. So what if it’s not about millions and mansions, chateaus or chartered planes. Their sapna is made of strong stuff too. As kadak as the chai Arjun Harishchandra Waghmare (Partho), serves daily at the tea-stall for meagre wages. Son of ...

Heropanti

Review :- So, Heropanti is like DDLJ – wearing knuckle-dusters. The action is in ‘Jat-land’ where rural lord Choudhary Suraj Singh (Raj) is celebrating the arranged marriage of his daughter Renu (Dhar). The wedding’s high Haryanvi style, all celebratory bullets and booze, chowmein eaten with dhai-kilo hands and relatives including an encounter specialist cop, a land shark badmaash and king ...
