Ki & Ka ……. A Movie Review

**1/2 Take the routine plot of a movie like Abhimaan. A successful man, a housewife, the housewife becomes famous, the man becomes jealous, they patch up at the end.   And now switch the roles. The man becomes the woman and the woman steps into the shoes of the man. Viola !!! that makes the…

Rocky Handsome …. A Movie Review

*** Rocky Handsome is an out and out Action movie. The movie is a rip off of the Korean movie “The Man From Nowhere” and is almost every bit gory as the original one, though one cannot ignore the traces of John’s previous movie “Force” in it too. Like most Korean action movies it deals…

Kapoor & Sons ….. A Movie Review

**** Watching Kapoor & Sons is like taking a scenic boat ride off a calm river, enjoying the beauty of the ride and getting yourself engrossed in the loveliness around you, forgetting the world for a moment.   Without wasting any time, the movie takes you into the house of Kapoor Dadaji played by a…

Jai Gangaajal (Movie Review)

** Jai Gangajaal picks up from where Gangaajal started, rather than where it ended as sequels usually do. Infact, it can hardly be called a sequel, since it has absolutely the same story and same script as the Ajay Devgan starrer. New Cop takes charge, corrupt cops change into nice ones, Mafia cum Politicians, Public…

Aligarh …. A Movie Review

***1/3 Aligarh is a dark, brooding and tragic tale of Professor Ramchandra Siras who was suspended for being Gay and his subsequent efforts to get back his lost Respect. The movie is shot with a sense of foreboding which will keep you engrossed in the tale despite not being a racy fast paced T20 type…

Neerja……..A Movie Review

**** There are some movies which take real life incidences and turn them into a commercial enterprise and then there are some which do absolute justice to the real incidence.   Neerja, by Ram Madhvani, is a brilliantly made movie about Purser Neerja Bhanot and the Pan Am Flight 73 hijack of 1986.   Ram…

Ghayal Once Again ….. A Movie Review

* *  Ghayal Once Again tries to bring about moments of nostalgia by getting back Ajay Mehra of the “Balwant Rai Ke Kutton” fame.   And it succeeds, but only to an extent.   The movie starts off with a background check of Ghayal, with Sunny Deol coming back from Jail coping with his psychological…

Saala Khadoos …. A Movie Review

** 1/2   Saala Khadoos is your regular run of the mill predictable movie.   Just the fact that the movie has a newbie Boxer and a Coach who sees a spark in her, is enough to predict exactly how the movie is going to end.   And the resemblance to Chak De with the…

MastiZaade ….. A Movie Review

 * * *  MastiZaade is an out and out Sex Comedy. No Holds Barred. Pahlaj Nihalani must have been dipping his sins in the Ganges while this movie was passed by the Censor Board with, what appears to be, minimum Cuts. The movie has Sunny Leone in a Double Role, both characters exposing enough Double…
