Post KHILADI and BAAZIGAR, Abbas-Mustan rightfully earned the tag of being the undisputed Badshaahs of Thrillers. They made a series of films thereafter — of varied genres — but every time they attempted a thriller, the comparisons with KHILADI and BAAZIGAR were inevitable.

The director duo’s latest [...]

BLACK and WHITE

BLACK and WHITE

A standing ovation for Subhash Ghai for venturing into a territory that would be considered uninviting for an escapist entertainer. But ‘Black & White’ doesn’t impress you merely because it’s a daring deviation for the showman.
It’s a well crafted, finely written and packaged piece of cinema done with more heartfelt Gandhian articulations than most films [...]

Jodhaa Akbar

Jodhaa Akbar

Over the last few weeks, television channels have been flooded with debates over the relationship between Jodhaa and Akbar. Was she his wife or his daughter-in-law?

Mithya

Mithya

Sunday

Sunday

These two are made for each other in Rohit Shetty’s La-la Land — he is addicted to ice-cream she dubs for kiddie cartoons. He is a cop and she is a damsel who has a Sunday missing from her week.

Bombay To Bangkok

Bombay To Bangkok

For every one of us who’s come to expect original and sensible entertainment from Nagesh Kukunoor, his latest film, Bombay To Bangkok will prove to be a disappointment.
Come to think of it, it’s exactly the kind of picture you don’t expect from him because it’s predictable, the casting’s all wrong, and in the end it [...]

Welcome

Welcome

Exit from the hall at the end of the movie was the better part of watching Welcome , director Anees Bazmee’s latest comedy film. The movie falls way short of expectations.
Firstly, the film does gross injustice to an actor like Akshay Kumar , someone who has time and again proved his prowess at comedy. In [...]

Unlike Ramgopal Varma’s Darna Mana Hai or its follow-up Darna Zaroori Hai which were both omnibus films whose short [...]
