A Flying Jatt …….. A Movie Review

* * * 1/2 After a random bunch of overhyped movies, A Flying Jatt comes as a refreshing breath of fresh air.   The movie makes no pretense at being a serious movie but is specifically targeted towards the kiddie audience who would probably be jumping up and down in their seats throughout the movie….

Mohenjo Daro …… A Movie Review

* * Mohenjo Daro, the latest offering from the team of Ashutosh Gowariker, is a slight long film. Its around 2 hours 20 mins too long. The moment you see Hritik Roshan battling an alligator in the first 15 mins of the movie, you know you are in for a tough time making it through the…

Rustom …. A Movie Review

** As far as Akshay Kumar and his streak of Patriotic movies go, right from Holiday to Baby to Airlift … Rustom is by far one of the worst movies.   What starts as a promising suspense court room thriller, gets sidelined by its predictability to the extent, that right from the beginning you are…

Sultan ……… A Movie Review

*** Sultan is based on a regular run of the mill storyline. An ageing Superstar/Sportsman who was a big thing in his hay days, goes down hard and then returns one final time (for a good cause usually) to test his mettle and makes the best of it. You have seen this a 100 times,…

Udta Punjab …… A Movie Review

**** From the stables of Anurag Kashyap comes yet another dark and gory crime thriller which will churn your guts and leave you feeling hollow towards the end. Udta Punjab has the backdrop of the drug menace in Punjab but goes much beyond simply exposing the problems of a particular state. It can be related…

Housefull 3 …… A Movie Review

* Housefull 3 comes as a breath of that air which is left at a Garbage dump, after a Cleanliness drive which never took place. While Housefull 1 & 2 played football with your sensibilities, Housefull 3 challenges your IQ level by taking it to a whole new level of lowness and beating it up…

Fan ….. A Movie Review

  Shahrukh Khan comes back as his own fan in the latest offering from Yash Raj films.   It was quite obvious from the promos what the movie was going to be. And whenever a movie is that obvious, there needs to be a certain something different in it to make it stand out from…

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…
