Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na

Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na

Two decades ago, the Mansoor Khan-helmed QAYAMAT SE QAYAMAT TAK, starring two newcomers [Aamir Khan, Juhi Chawla], focused on teenage love, with parental opposition acting as an obstacle. The story wasn’t new, but the treatment was fresh and inventive. QSQT remains one of the finest reference films in this genre and rightly so!

Via Darjeeling

Via Darjeeling

VIA DARJEELING follows the format of one story, but multiple versions/endings. The problem here is that the main story [as narrated by Vinay Pathak] is incomplete, so all assumptions and interpretations don’t look convincing or cut ice with the viewer. 1/5 Stars
ome ideas translate into interesting, 2-hour films. But some ideas, though translated on screen, [...]

De Taali

De Taali

If you’ve watched the promos of DE TAALI, you’d expect a film with tremendous youth power. You’d expect gags, gimmicks, laughter-n-sunshine and lots and lots of fun. But DE TAALI is anything but this! On the contrary, it’s a slow-paced love story, which depicts one of the actors as a modern-day Devdas who hits the [...]

Khusboo

Sarkar Raj

Sarkar Raj

Sequels are dicey business. No matter how much you improvise on your new script, you cannot escape comparisons. And when you attempt a sequel of a critically acclaimed film that’s a huge box-office grosser as well, it’s akin to walking on a tight rope.
Most importantly, post RAMGOPAL VARMA KI AAG, Ramgopal Varma was everyone’s favorite [...]

Aamir

Aamir

Sometimes, big things come in small packages. On face value, AAMIR doesn’t really look enticing. The director is a first-timer [Rajkumar Gupta], the protagonist [Rajeev Khandelwal] also forays on the big screen with this flick, the film is set in the dingy bylanes of Mumbai, so visually too, it’s not alluring.
But this small film has [...]
