  •     Aarakshan
    Prakash Jha has made his niche as a film-maker making hard-hitting yet commercially palatable movies like Mrityudand, Gangajal and Apharan , which are steeped in strong North Indian rural ethos and based on burning socio-political ground realities. H...
  •     Delhi Belly
    A packet to be delivered, worth lacs of crime goods; an accidental switch of recipients; a pissed off gang-lord; his crazy cronies; some blissfully unaware go-betweens and an out of control spiral of madcap events. The formula has worked out well in ...
  •     Yeh Saali Zindagi
    With his films like Hazaron Khwahishein Aisi and Khoya Khoya Chaand, director Sudhir Mishra has showed his talent for telling unusual stories in unusual style and in Yeh Saali Zindagi he manages to do the same....
  •     404
    A medical college hostel, somewhere in North India; the haughty seniors ragging the shy freshers; a lone junior, who decides to stand up against the excesses; the other juniors then joining him to protest against the ragging practices. The film 404 ...
  •     Bodyguard
    Only a few A-grade star-studded films can do this to you. They make you clutch your head in despair within just fifteen minutes of walking into the theatre. They make you wonder about the depths to which film-making can sink and they make you ponder ...
  •     Zindagi Na MIlegi Dobara
    In 2001, Farhan Akhtar’s Dil Chahta Hai brought in a sea-change in Hindi film-making style. Suddenly cool, contemporary and chic was in. Urban life-styles and their resultant stresses, strains and story-lines started becoming the new fodder for you...
  •     Singham
    Leaving behind his successful comedy-formula, director Rohit Shetty makes a switch to the Action genre and shows that he can do well there, too. In this post-millennium era where Bollywood films are increasingly becoming partial to subtlety and grey ...
  •     Bbuddha Hoga Tera Baap
    Way back in the mid-and-late-70s, Amitabh Bachchan was a One Man Film Industry, where he represented No. 1 to 10 in the list and only later came the other names. In those days, he was this larger than life personality- simmering with anger, bubbling ...
  •     Murder 2
    From a serial kisser to a serial killer. That’s how far the ‘Murder’ franchise has moved. If the first film dwelled more on Emraan and Mallika’s hot shots than a half-baked murder in the story-line, then the second film makes a clean cut from...
  •     Shor in the city
    Times are changing. No longer are Hindi film-makers sticking to the so-called ‘pharmula’ of larger-than-life settings, super-heroes and romanticized plots. So we are getting to see many true-to-life, deglamourised and yet pretty interesting films...
  •     Pyar Ka Punchnama
    Welcome to the busy, buzzing world of urban bachelors. Away from parents, working hard, earning enough and eyeing pretty girls in pubs. Life is cool or at least it seems like that. But what happens when these hopeful singletons get entangled in rela...
  •     Chillar Party
    A good children’s movie is one which not only makes the children happy but which also appeals to the adults! Yes, that’s the real test for the films in this genre and Chillar Party passes that with flying colours. Warm, funny and touching – thi...
  •     Ready
    In Tennis language, the phenomenon is called ‘to be in the Zone’! When you are in the Zone, whatever you do, clicks. Mis-hits get you winners and practically every shot connects in the middle of the racquet. When it comes to Bollywood, Salman Kha...
  •     Chalo Dilli
    A stylish, stiff upper-lipped, high-flying lady executive from Mumbai (Lara Dutta) and a crass, loud-mouth, street-smart, small-time trader from Delhi (Vinay Pathak). What happens when their seemingly diametrically opposite worlds collide? Yes, that...
  •     Game

  •     No One Killed Jessica
    In 1999, Jessica Lal, an aspiring model was killed in a fit of drunken rage by Manu Sharma, a powerful politician’s son. This happened in a night-party at Delhi, which was attended by over a hundred prominent people. With practically no one ready t...
  •     Udaan
    Watching a much-acclaimed film a few months after its release has its pros and cons. One tends to anticipate much and after watching, sometimes wonders what was so great about it. Watching Udaan was somewhat like that. The film, which got so many awa...
  •     Well Done Abba
    Smart, funny, penetrating and thought-provoking. A good social satire should have all these qualities and that’s what Well Done Abba makes you say. In his earlier films like Mandi and Welcome To Sajjanpur, Benegal had successfully explored satiric...
  •     Tees Maar Khan
    Released just prior to year-end, Tees Maar Khan was supposed to become the biggest blockbuster of 2010 but instead turned out to be the dampest squib of the year. It is not hard to see why. Just after watching the first 15 minutes of the film, one st...
  •     Guzaarish
    Sanjay Leela Bhansali has always showed a strange fascination for themes built around characters afflicted with serious medical problems. Khamoshi dealt with speech-hearing deficit; Black dealt with speech-hearing-visual deficit as well as Alzheimer...
