Badmashiyaan

Review :- If one let’s go off the bad production value and detailing of the film, Badmashiyaan has in store an appeasing climax. Director Amit Khanna executes the insurmountable task of sewing in five stark yet intertwined plots seamlessly. Taking cues from the classic storytelling of Asian rom-coms, the film adapts the set pattern unique to their yarn. Those well-acquainted ...

Dum Laga Ke Haisha

Review :- Dum Laga Ke Haisha is an unlikely quasi-original offering from the stable that in recent past has made sincere efforts to defy the conventional notions of love. This film might further the cause of breaking away from the bastion but it reeks of predictability. Sharat Kataria pulls off a quaint-yet-flawed film. Set in circa 1995 in Haridwar, he ...

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 ...

Khoobsurat

Review :- So, Khoobsurat is pretty – and pretty hilarious. Dr. Mrinalini Chakravarty aka Mili (Sonam) is a physiotherapist, hired to help Rajasthan royal Shekhar Rathore (Aamir Raza). Rani Nirmala (Ratna) and Yuvraj Vikram (Fawad) expect a quiet medic who will blend blandly into royal discipline – but they get a live-wire who teases the dishy Yuvraj, ‘Raja log praja ...

Life is Beautiful

Review : The plot seems to be inspired by popular rom-coms ‘The Proposal’ (2009) and ‘What Happens in Vegas’ (2008). Of course, these Hollywood films were way superior in every possible way but this one has its own twist or (the lack of it) and innocence. Set in Canada, ‘Superman’ fan-boy Raj (the lovelorn protagonist) works less and fantasizes more ...

Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania

Review :- He’s Sir Hump-a-lot (or at least make out-a-lot). Maybe that’s why his nick is ‘Humpty’. Typical Delhi ka munda, part-dilwala, part-gunda. So we have a classic ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge’ in the mix. Fast-forwarded to today (18 years later). Where love is a ‘Facebook’ post and the generational shift allows you to ‘makeout’ with your gal and smoke-up ...

Bewakoofiyaan

Review :- ‘Romance in times of recession’ can be a buzzkill. When currency crash leads to heartbreaks and house-breaks. And the youth are left with bankrupt dreams. Morbid, huh? Hold on … this one is far from a depressive rich-girl, poor-boy plot; instead, ‘Bewakoofiyan’ is a light-hearted story of how an out-of-work lover-boy signs on for a full-time job of ...

Total Siyapaa

Review :- This ‘Aman Ki Asha’ is set on neither side of the Indo-Pak border. In fact, it crosses over to Brit-land, where butter chicken and bhangra rule the angrezis. And where Singhs are Kings. Here lies the love story of an Indian girl Asha (Yami) and a Pakistani boy Aman (Ali) who’re much in love, but confused about how ...

Shaadi Ke Side Effects

Review :- He says it. She disagrees. He reacts. She overacts. He makes mistakes, he says sorry. She makes mistakes, ‘he’ says sorry. So there! Even geniuses like Socrates and Einstein couldn’t crack a fool-proof plan to a ‘happy marriage’. Even novel cosmic concepts like Men are from Mars and Women are from all over the place (lol!) can’t explain ...

Hasee Toh Phasee

Review :  Hasee Toh Phasee is for the romantics who like their martinis stirred not shaken. Debutant director Vinil Mathew’s straight-forward approach is smart and fresh; his characters are lovable. Nikhil(Sidharth Malhotra) is an optimist, who believes once committed, there’s no straying. Meeta( Parineeti Chopra) is a non-conformist; she’s a go-getter in her personal and professional space. Naturally Nikhil and Meeta’s ideologies ...
