Hijack

Hijack

Of late, debut-making directors are coming up with stories that defy the stereotype. Kunal Shivdasani is one of those. In his very first outing, he chooses a story not many debutantes — even established names, for that matter — would dare to tell: Hijack. Sure, YEH DIL AASHIQANA [Kuku Kohli] and ZAMEEN [Rohit Shetty] have [...]

A Wednesday

A Wednesday

Now this is a complete surprise. And an extremely pleasant surprise, must add. Newer stories are slowly finding their way into plexes of India. Two Fridays ago, PHOONK spoke about the power of Black Magic and last Friday, ROCK ON!! encouraged you to chase your dreams. Both PHOONK and ROCK ON!! didn’t boast of A-list [...]

Rock On

Rock On

If you consider ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ as one of the finest films made on male bonding laced with witty sense of humour and great music, then ‘Rock On!!’ is a worthy sequel. The only difference being that while in the former Farhan Akhtar made a clever debut as a director and in the latter he [...]

Phoonk

Phoonk

The great debate between science and superstition continues, but RGV’s new film PHOONK tilts in favour of superstition. Surprising, isn’t it?
The makers of the film had organized a contest. You’d be given a handsome reward if you’ve the courage to watch PHOONK all alone in a theatre, we’re told. Honestly speaking, PHOONK isn’t scary by [...]

Maan Gaye Mughall-E-Azam

Maan Gaye Mughall-E-Azam

Sanjay Chhel has penned a number of comic fares. Obviously, when Chhel takes charge and decides to helm a project himself, you expect his film to be one wacky ride. Indeed, MAAN GAYE MUGHALL-E-AZAM is wild in parts, thoroughly enjoyable at times, but you don’t exclaim ‘maan gaye’ in the end.
MAAN GAYE MUGHALL-E-AZAM prompts you [...]

Mumbai Meri Jaan

Mumbai Meri Jaan

The serial bombing of suburban trains in Mumbai in 2006 is a nightmarish incident the nation would never forget. And Mumbaikars still get gooseflesh recalling the ghastly incident. MUMBAI MERI JAAN recreates the incident on celluloid, but is not about terrorism per se. It talks about the aftermath of this tragedy and how the lives [...]

Bachna Ae Haseeno

Bachna Ae Haseeno

BACHNA AE HASEENO is special. Ranbir Kapoor is cast opposite teen deviyaan — Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone, Minissha Lamba. It’s produced by a premier production house, the credits read ‘Story by Aditya Chopra’ and most importantly, it’s helmed by Siddharth Raj Anand, who merged form and content so beautifully in SALAAM | NAMASTEY and TA [...]

God Tussi Great Ho

God Tussi Great Ho

When it comes to escapist cinema, a gifted writer can make his imagination run really wild. Think of a crazy story, come up with outrageous and zany situations, rope in actors who’d look believable in those parts… hey presto, a crazy potboiler is ready to be served.
Rumy Jafry, who has penned some crazy comedies in [...]

Singh is King

Singh is King

You MUST leave your brains behind before you enter the hall to watch this film. This film is lavinsh and grand in scale but not in content. If you enjoyed Welcome, the you will relish this film. The scenes jump so quickly that you have no time to apply any logic. Its about AK being [...]

Ugly Aur Pagli

Ugly Aur Pagli

UGLY AUR PAGLI is a bizarre and uncanny title. But catchy and attracts instant attention at the same time. It’s for this reason that you expect UGLY AUR PAGLI to be one wacky ride, what with the film promising 99 slaps and 1 kiss.
Besides, post PYAAR KE SIDE EFFECTS, unconventional stories with unconventional casting only [...]

Money Hai Toh Honey Hai

Money Hai Toh Honey Hai

David Dhawan and Priyadarshan triggered off a trend — of making brainless comedies — and thus began a wave of leave-your-brains-at-home laughathons. Inspired by the success of these ha-ha-he-he fares, every second film-maker decided to join the bandwagon for that elusive Hit. But, of late, no-brainer comedies have reached a saturation point.
Ganesh Acharya’s MONEY HAI [...]

Mehbooba

Mehbooba

A film like MEHBOOBA makes you nostalgic. It takes you back to the cinema of 1990s, when an altogether new breed of film-makers took over Bollywood. Multiple heroes, lavish sets, scenic locations… money was being pumped in from all corners in Hindi movies.
MEHBOOBA comes across as an offshoot of films made in that phase. It [...]
