Rangrezz

Review :- So, here’s the story of BFFs (best friends forever) revisited. Only this one’s not about boys on a bachelor’s trip (read: road film) or the boy gang-bang kind of stuff (read: sex comedies). The theme of ‘Rangrezz’, is more like ‘dosts till death do us part’, with of course, a melange of other issues (love, sex, marriage, mazhab) ...

Jolly L.L.B.

Review :- So, Jolly LLB isn’t a comedy – despite jokes about ‘appeal’ spelled as ‘apple’ and Jolly telling Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists he’s Maskhar-e-Taiba, Jolly LLB is a serious movie, showcasing the arrogance of the rich, the helplessness of the poor and the corruption of the law. Jolly (Warsi) is a struggling mofussil lawyer, itching for big-city deals. He convinces girlfriend ...

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns

Review :- Mind you, this is not regular gangsta film; with usual showcasing of arms, ammunition, bangs and blasts. Yes, it has explosives of another kind – ‘bangs’ (it’s a total ‘bed’-bangers ball, what gall); Weapons of Mass Seduction and politics of bistar and beyond. This sequel, a strange mix of foul games and passionplay, unfolds with a crippled Saheb ...

Kai Po Che!

Review :- Welcome to another sensitive and superlative friendship film. Like other memorable cinema in this category, Dil Chahta Hai (2001), Rang De Basanti (2006), Rock On!! (from the same director, Abhishek Kapoor, in 2008) and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011), Kai Po Che, too, is a story of male bonding in the time of the devastating Gujarat earthquake and ...

Inkaar

Review :- You know those cakes that look gorgeous in pictures but collapse when they bake? Inkaar is like that. Polished-looking, its edges – the tension of feeling harassed at work, office politics, ego flashes – hold rather well. But its centre collapses in a soft mess. Featuring advertising hot-shots Rahul (Rampal) and Maya (Singh), Inkaar shows the heat and ...

Gangoobai

Review :- Aga Bai! This Gangoobai (Sarita Joshi) is like none other. Picture this. She makes it to the elite guest list at fashion shows (in her bright coloured nauvari and tattoo between her brows), she’s styled by Mumbai’s hot-shot design house, and she spiritedly lives up to the city’s bustling night-life. But long before everything turned so ‘hip and ...

Myoho

Review :- The storytelling is interesting and unconventional, hats off to the director for that. The film revolves around the lives of certain people, their needs and dilemmas. The setting is initially rural and then urban. From Bihar to Mumbai, over the years, people and their struggles, caste system in Indian society, the sexual exploitation of women, everything stays constant. ...

Future Toh Bright Hai Ji

Review :- Ajay (Aamir Bashir) and Sonia (Sonal Sehgal) aspire to be successful in Bollywood — Sonia as an actress and Ajay as a script writer. Both are hard-working and take up any given job to make ends meet. The two, however, strive hard to get over mediocrity. Sonia wants to eventually graduate to films from TV, while Ajay seeks ...

Ata Pata Laapata

Review :- Rajpal Yadav makes his debut as a director with social satire Ata Pata Laapata. The film starts off as a comedy, but turns into a social drama, addressing social and political issues like corruption, land mafia, ministers and their vote banks. As the film preaches satya and ahimsa, you wonder what its relevance to the story is! Yadav ...
