Delhi Safari

Review: Welcome to Animal Planet! Not the one of guts and gore of Tellyland’s jaws, paws and claws; but our own animated jungle mein mangal. Yes. The Animals have landed. Look around the city; you can probably spot a lonely leopard at a ‘zebra-crossing’, a bear working his fat-ass off in your gym or a bandar – ek Virar-fast-local-train-ke-andar. Let’s ...

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 ...

Aiyyaa

Review :- Arrey Deva, hey kai? Kinky Kanda-pohey topped with sexy sambar-chutney? Of course, this can’t beat the madness of the dramatic Deshpandes. A family of ‘weird-Ums’ – With aai, baba, bhau, aajji and dream-girl Meenaxi Deshpande ( Rani Mukerji), who’s truly the Queen of her filmi fantasies (she’s revisited every dream sequence as Sridevi, Juhi, Madhuri). So what if ...

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 ...

In the name of Tai

Review: Well-known Marathi actress Nishigandha Wad essays the role of a lawyer (Sandhya Purushottam), who fights to safeguard the rights and property of poor famers in rural Maharashtra. She is thus conferred the title of ‘tai’ (elder sister) by the locals, who consider her as their only saviour. Sandhya (Wad) dares to oppose the politicians and builders, who lure the ...

Kismet, Love, Paisa, Dilli

Review :- This one’s no ‘stand-up’ comedy. Neither will any part of you feel like giving it a standing ovation. This is as much of a dhoka, as the slang version of KLPD actually suggests. It is a string of episodes, part slap-stick, part-ridiculous, part comedy (the smallest part, of course) that all happens in one long night. It starts ...

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 ...

Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal

Review :- Bring out your ‘marker pens’ and get ready to ‘check’ if this fits the bill for a typical Priyadarshan comedy. 1. An almost-rural setting. 2. A medley of whimsical character artists. 3. A complex, chaotic parivaar choc-o-bloc with more betas, betis, chachas and chamchas than TV-Land’s epic shows. 4. Stupidly, strictly, slapsticky. 5. A parallel romantic sidetrack that ...
