  •     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
    An eccentric billionaire (Anupam Kher) sets up a meeting with 4 perfect strangers on the Greek island of Samos. Amongst his surprised invitees are an Istanbul -based suave drug-dealer (Abhishek Bachchan), a Bangkok-based top level politician (Boman I...
  •     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...
  •     Dabangg
    “I’ll make so many holes in your body that you won’t even know from where to breathe and from where to fart!” Well, the showpiece dialogue of Dabangg should tell you something about the film, even without seeing it. That it is loud and lewd a...
  •     Badmash Company
    Something is going seriously wrong with Aditya Chopra's movie selection. The brain behind the Yashraj think-tank recently seems to be repeatedly erring in his choice of movie-themes and that has clearly shown through India's premier movie-house's lac...
  •     My Name Is Khan
    Karan Johar is seriously trying to change his image as a mass-oriented, mushy film-maker and trying to establish Dharma Productions as a film-house producing movies with substance and a message to boot! His earlier effort as a producer in Kurbaan may...
  •     3 Idiots
    'Wow, how does he do that? How can he pick up winners every time?' That was the first thought coming to my mind after coming out of the theatre after watching 3 Idiots. No, I was not thinking of Aamir Khan, the film's hero- even though I won't be bla...
  •     Rocket Singh – Salesman of the year
    This Yashraj- follow-up to Chak De India from the talented team of writer Jaideeep Sahni and Shimit Amin is another good if a bit lengthy film based on a similar theme based on an underdog outsider taking on the system. But if last time it was the wo...
  •     Paa
    Director R. Balki had presented a modern May-September love-story in his debut film Cheeni Kum and in Paa, he decides to portray a tale of father-son-bonding. The clever twist (No doubt inspired by Benjamin Button!) comes from the fact that the son i...
