Aakrosh

Caste based atrocity is one of the worst, chronic and a few millennia old injustice of the world. Yet its continuing prevalence, especially in India, is one of its best kept open-secrets.

Crook

Crook

Damn! Why didn’t we think of sending the amazing super-hero Emran Hashmi to Australia before? Emran Saab’s solution to global malevolence as provided in this disappointing mismash of masala and headlines is simple enough.
It’s good to be bad. So says the smooth-sayer. Fair enough. If only the director had not decided to apply the motto [...]

Do Dooni Chaar

Do Dooni Chaar

In a season of overblown action-comedies with superstars laying down the ground-rules for dynamic dada-giri on the large screen, it is refreshing and comforting to see an aging world-weary working-class hero who travels to work on a rickety scooter and tries to fulfil his nucleur family’s dreams of a car.

Anjaana Anjaani – Movie Review

The challenge that film walas set themselves in today’s day and age is to create new parameters and break all the rules of traditional Bollywood film-making. And while they experiment, the audiences are served with a fine smorgasbord of feisty films to titillate their palette.

Aashayein

Aashayein

This is a film about coping with dying. But that’s not what makes it such a special experience. It’s the writer- director’s profound understanding of human nature that furnishes the simple story with a lucidity and coherence even when the protagonist’s mind is so numbed by physical pain he can barely think [...]

Help

Help

Rajeev Manoj Virani’s Help is a well made horror film that succeeds in giving you the requisite chills and thrills expected out of a good horror film but the problem lies with the unoriginality of the plot that seems heavily inspired from Thai film Alone.

Peepli [Live]

Peepli [Live]

It is a miracle that a script like “Peepli Live” has been turned into a movie and has got a commercial release. It is certainly surprising that a mainstream filmmaker like Aamir Khan decided to invest money in a movie that puts the spotlight on grave issues like the plight of Indian peasants.
