Singh Saab The Great

Review: Like all films that talk of reforming society, Anil Sharma’s Singh Saab the Great has its heart in the correct place. Sunny Deol’s earnestness shines, throughout the duration of this melodrama. But these guys have to choose better plots to make a point. We’ve seen a honest collector single-handedly trying to tackle corruption a zillion times. And the treatment; ...

Rajjo

Review :- She’s no ‘Pretty Woman’ walkin’ down the street. With trimmed hats, stilettos (higher than her dreams) or with a brazen billionaire to whisk her away into a fairytale of fantasies.

Super Model

Review :- Picture this. The beaches of Fiji. Five women in their itsy-bitsies, flashing plenty of ti**sy. A hotshot fashion photographer. And a coveted Super Model title up for grabs. One would think this is the ideal setting for a story sunwashed in sex and sin, with slow-mo shots of Baywatch babes lapping the lenses. Alas, it’s not! The otherwise ...

Satyagraha

Review :- There’s a shot in Satyagraha – a rainbow glimmering for a second between jets of water pounding protestors – which typifies this film. Vibrantly layered, Satyagraha weaves together urban legends of corruption, encompassing corporate lobbyists to murdered engineers. It features slices of histories, Chauri Chaura, Mandal, Anna Hazare’s Jan Lokpal Andolan. It takes a real issue – corruption ...

Review :- Once Upon a Time… Bollywood movies were enamored by dreaded D’s of the underworld. They still are. Whether the story is told in retro-rap, or with stylish designer double Dons, or with gloss-free rawness of realism. This endless ‘lawless’ love affair continues.
