Sairat ….. A Movie Review

  Finally managed to watch the movie and its absolutely brilliant.   Nagraj Manjule takes you through the journey of the star-crossed lovers in this movie.   He cajoles with every emotion that you are capable of, leading you through the ups and downs of the love story of Parshya and Archie.   The movie…

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…

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…

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…

AirLift …… Movie Review

#AirLift  Airlift is the perfect example of how a brilliant script falling into the wrong hands can fail to justice to one of the biggest evacuations the World has ever known.   Dont misunderstand. Airlift is a pretty decent watch and it will keep you engrossed right till the end.   Its just that there…

Katyar Kaljat Ghusali …. Movie Review

Finally got to watch this movie. This movie is what one would call a “Musical” and I was pretty sure that my kids would get bored while watching it. Thats the reason I was waiting for some alone time to watch it. Finally, I got some time today and put on the movie, but my…

Wazir ….. Movie Review

Wazir is a Fast paced Crime Thriller. Its not your regular Bollywood movie which can hardly be classified in a proper Genre. Its not your regular Rohit Shetty kind of action which will have you jumping up and down as Cars do sommersaults all over the place. Neither is it like the Akshay Kumar wala…
