Chennai Express

Review :- In an ode to his own cinema—read Golmaal series, Bol Bachchan, Rohit Shetty ishstyle, the director, who has grossers in Bollywood’s 100-crore club, ups the scale for his Eid offering. Chennai Express (CE) is a magnificently mounted film. Never having been strong in the story department, CE too has a guillible plot line. Rahul ( Shah Rukh Khan) ...

Review :- Warning for Men only: If you’re cheating on your wife, or planning a feisty fling – keep the married-half away from this one. So let’s get started. With the coitus of the problem – Shaadi.

Calapor

Review :- Can cultural activities or treating criminals with respect bring about a change in their behaviour and mindset? V. Shantaram, one of our finest filmmakers, made a heart-rending film addressing this issue, way back in 1957, in Do Aankhen Baarah Haath. In spite of it being made in the ’50s, it was far more impactful and thought-provoking. While Calapor ...

B.A. Pass

Review :- Unbutton, unbuckle and unstrap the senses. It’s going to be one erotic escapade – kinky, caustic, brutal and brave. With ample ‘O’s and ‘Ahhs!‘ Some painfully fake, others carnally climaxed. Adapted from Mohan Sikka’s short story, ‘Railway Aunty’, it’s about the doom and desperation of an impoverished life and the extremes one can go to redeem themselves of ...

Issaq

Review :- Welcome to the holy city of Banaras – replete with ‘spesal’ paan, levitating smoked-up (on herbs) saadhus, Banarasi babus high on bhaang and others’ biwis on un-Holi celebrations. And amidst this colourful backdrop, an age-old feud simmers between two powerful families – The Mishras and the Kashyaps. Mishra son, Rahul (Prateik) – a romantic at heart, (chooses girls ...

Nasha

Review :- Lean, mean teens, with hormones gushing through your jeans, get ready to spray them denims already. ‘Nasha’ unclothes the tantalizing desires of stud-boy teenagers who are out for their ‘de-virginization’ – or pehla nasha. With their boxers down and tongues twirling around. The story churns up a visual world of sex, sin, seduction and all the sensations that ...

Bajatey Raho

Review :- In his third outing in Bollywood, Shashant Shah, who has been previously credited with Dasvidaniya (2008) and Chalo Dilli (2011), attempts a light-hearted comedy based out of sadda Dilli. Predominantly Punjabi-flavoured, the film is one of those of linear, comic capers with a slight drama that makes you smile, though the situations and characters are cliched. A businessman-thug ...

Ramaiya Vastavaiya

Review :- Welcome to Animal Farm. With ample chicks, hens, horns; many ‘murgas’, mulgis, mummyjis and baaratis. Add to this rustic beauty some colours of harvest, village belles, jadoo ki jhappi (read: item number by Jacqueline Fernandez) and of course, amidst it all – blooming romance in fields of gold. In pure Prabhudheva style – with spoonfuls of desi ghee! ...
