Woodstock Villa

Woodstock Villa

Hindi cinema is slowly waking up to hardcore thrillers. Earlier this year, Abbas-Mustan’s RACE chartered a totally novel path. The twists-n-turns in the plot moved in a serpentine manner, with the viewer finding it difficult to guess what the outcome would be. WOODSTOCK VILLA, directed by Hansal Mehta, also leaves the viewer guessing what’s in [...]

Dhoom Dadakka

Dhoom Dadakka

Comedies are the flavor of the season and more and more film-makers are following the formula re-invented by David Dhawan and Priyadarshan. Entertainment is the key word, while a logical story goes out of the window. Shashi Ranjan’s new outing DHOOM DADAKKA tries to recreate the hungama and gets it quite right in the first [...]

Jannat

Jannat

The Bhatts never run out of stories. In their new outing JANNAT, Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt have yet another new story to tell. This time, it’s all about match fixing and bookies. But wait! It would be erroneous to classify JANNAT as a cricket-centric film. Cricket is just the wallpaper here. The focus is on [...]

Bhootnath

Bhootnath

“Bhootnath” is that rare film set in Goa where you don’t see a single bikini-clad woman. The songs are colourful, but they are done with the devilish delight of a rock concert rather than the calculated manoeuvres of choreographic manipulation.
Indeed, debutant director Vivek Sharma harks back to an artless innocence to tell the tale of [...]

Jimmy

Jimmy

“Do you think I’m a rejected man?” – the villain asks repeatedly after his true intentions are exposed at the end of this tediously assembled pastiche of bad and ugly.
Don’t know about the poor battered psycho who contorts his face like his pants were just bitten off by a colony of ants. But this film [...]

Anamika

Anamika

Film scripts are like rubber band. Try stretching the band beyond a point and it’s sure to give away. The script of ANAMIKA suffers for this reason!
Director Ananth Narayan Mahadevan presents every sequence with utmost care till the intermission point. You’re hooked, you’re transported to the world of Mrs. Anamika Sisodiya, the character who continues [...]

Sirf

Sirf

Salaam E Ishq and Life In A…Metro were two major films which released last year and had a common running theme to them. The theme centered on relationship between various couples, a few married and some unmarried, who happened to cross each other’s way at some junction or another. While Salaam E Ishq wasn’t a [...]

Tashan

Tashan

The threesome – Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan – on the way to god-knows-where need to escape from the cops. They get into blonde wigs and tight ‘American’ costumes and turn into item dancers for a Hollywood project called Holy Widows. “Tashan” is so full of the milk of human zaniness that [...]

Krazzy 4

Krazzy 4

It would be wrong to slot KRAZZY 4 as a comedy. Sure, KRAZZY 4 remains faithful to the ongoing trend of providing laughs at the oddest of things, but it’s more of a masala fare that’s reminiscent of the 1980s cinema. Packaged in a modern avatar, of course.
A film like KRAZZY 4 is easy on [...]

U Me Aur Hum

U Me Aur Hum

Aamir Khan has raised the bar with TAARE ZAMEEN PAR. Comparisons between Aamir and Ajay Devgan, who makes his directorial debut with U ME AUR HUM, would be erroneous, but you can’t turn a blind eye to the fact that the viewer would expect an encore with U ME AUR HUM. Will U ME AUR [...]

Shaurya

Shaurya

It takes vision and courage to make a film about the de-escalating valour and plummeting morale of the Indian Army. “Shaurya” is about the army, but it isn’t a war film. The battles are all fought at the level of individual conscience. But never does it get preachy.
It’s a film about the Indian Muslim’s identity. [...]

One Two Three

One Two Three

This guy comes into the comedy quite early to serve Sameera Reddy, a car showroom owner, a notice. He smiles and delivers his murderous missive, turns around, frowns and vanishes.
The thing about Ashwini Dheer’s flaky but funny farce is that it has accomplished comic actors in the smallest of parts. Watch out for the seasoned [...]
