Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend

Review :- Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend starts as a romcom, turns into a con caper, followed by a sting operation and finally ends as a love story. The plot of a woman luring a man to serve her own selfish interests, seems fun in the beginning, but it goes haywire to the extent that you’re least bothered about what happens to ...

Roy

Review :- Get ready to go on a ‘trip’. This one’s rolled up in celluloid – with all the kaleidoscopic colours and hues associated with it. Roy takes you on an orgasm of the imagination, and gives you a treat of visual delight – with all things good-looking. Smooth vintage wheels, stunning studs (horses), Fedora hats and magnificent Malaysia. Of ...

Main Aur Mr. Riight

Review :- If you fancy American romcoms, you would be able to predict the ending of this film right at the beginning. It has drawn inspiration from various films, the most prominent being Jennifer Aniston-starrer Picture Perfect (1997). In this case, what could have been an interesting take on relationships in a social media-driven, opinionated world, gets marred by juvenile ...

Bang Bang

Review :- Siddharth Anand’s Bang Bang makes more noise and little sense. This desi adaptation of the 2010 Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz action thriller, Knight And Day, has charm in abundance, primarily because of its effervescent lead pair — Rajveer/Jai ( Hrithik Roshan) and Harleen (Katrina Kaif). But it lacks coherence. Disbelief is writ large on the face, right at the ...

Amit Sahni Ki List

Review :- Move over chick flicks for guy flicks have arrived and it’s only fair that rom-coms are now being made about boys looking for ‘Miss Right’.

Lekar Hum Deewana Dil

Review :- Debutant director Arif Ali’s Lekar Hum Deewana Dil is a sweet film that borrows the elopement theory from evergreen 70s’-80s’ romances like Bobby, Love Story and Betaab. It even has shades of Arif’s older brother Imtiaz’s Jab We Met and Highway. But this has a mint-crisp feel with its .com lingo. The lack of melodrama, for most part ...

Review: Guru (Sidharth) is a gangster who is happy to let his gun speak. Till the effervescent, virginal Aisha (Shraddha), a Good Samaritan, crosses his path. Opposite attract. His gun goes silent as the two of them chase the rainbow together. The texture of their relationship has that fairy-tale quality. And just when they start to build their castle, brick ...

Kahin Hai Mera Pyaar

Review :- The film has a decent premise. It starts off as a story about people who are destined to meet. However, in no time, the tale of eternal love and serendipity turns into a soppy love triangle, hints reincarnation, gives references to Adam and Eve and basically loses the plot. If an overdose of poor acting, silly dialogues (‘Meri ...
