    It’s a love story. It’s a hate story. It’s a human story. It’s a pest story. Director S.S. Rajamauli had this wacky idea for his Telugu blockbuster Eega. After seeing its Hindi dubbed version Makkhi, one just marvels how well it has captured ...
  •     Kismet Love Paisa Dilli
    Why do directors who dished out such promising debut films, falter so badly in their second offering? First Sagar Ballary did it and now it is Sanjay Kandhury’s turn. If Ballary’s fall from a brilliant Bheja Fry to an obnoxious Bheja Fry 2 was on...

  •     Aiyyaa

    That's the opening salvo in the recently released Raaz 3 but in a way this tag-line explains Madhur Bhandarkar's film-making philosophy. Films like Chandani Bar, Satta, Page 3, Traffic Signal, Jail, Corporate and Fashion have already shown his penc...
  •     Barfi
    After seeing Ranbir’s Chaplinesque antics in the promos and remembering writer-director Anurag Basu’s uneven track record (Saaya, Gangster, Murder, Kites…), I was not really sure if I wanted to see Barfi in the theatre. I had decided to wait fo...

  •     Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi
    Parsis, since the time they arrived on the Indian shores way back some centuries ago, have made good of their promise to mix into the Indian mainstream, just like sugar in milk. Yet their typical goofy, quirky image (besides their tall real life achi...
  •     Ek Tha Tiger
    I still remember watching the first day, first show of Dabangg on an Eid holiday and then, coming out happy, having thoroughly enjoyed the Salman-act of single-handedly carrying the typical Masala film. I was happy because in a way, he was reviving t...
  •     Gangs Of Wasseypur- Part 1 and 2
