Happy Ending

Review :- Happy Ending stylishly remixes Saif Ali Khan’s trademark avatar as a brat who won’t grow up. Saif plays Yudi, author in LA, high on sex and success. Yudi avoids new work and commitment – which his ex (Preity Zinta in cameo, channeling the pair’s Salaam Namaste chemistry) underlines. His married buddy Montu (Ranvir Shorey) is Yudi’s party partner ...

Kill Dil

Review :- Shaad Ali’s Kill Dil is inspired by countless Hollywood movies that showcase the protagonists romancing the gun. Here too, the two heroes Dev (Ranveer Singh) and Tutu (Ali Zafar) are orphans who are raised by a local Delhi don, Bhaiyyaji (Govinda).

6-5=2

Review :- It’s been over a decade since Hollywood took a liking to ‘low-budget found footage horror’ films. The Blair Witch Project (1999) put the genre on the map, making ‘based on real life events’ the perfect promotional gimmick. Paranormal Activity’s (2007) success further popularised the genre. Unfortunately, in spite of being inspired by the technique years after it became ...

The Shaukeens

Review :- Get ready for visual Viagra. The story of three blind mice was a fable, but the myth of three ‘horny’ men, desperately in search of a satisfying ‘climax’ to their mundane existence, is a stark reality. And in this ‘horniman circle’ lies the crux of the matter – ‘The Shaukeens’ – three ‘andropausal’ friends from Delhi; each one ...

Super Nani

Review :- A progressive thought on women’s empowerment is presented in the most regressive movie plot in Super Nani. Bharti Bhatia (Rekha)’s NRI grandson, Mann (Sharman Joshi) who gets his tenses mixed up when he speaks Hindi (unfortunately, that is meant to evoke laughter), arrives in India, without any bags, to see his grandma! At home, he sees her being ...
