It was Sir Walter Scott, I think, who said that “Love is Heaven and Heaven is Love”. Old sages and philosophers, poets and writers have all philosophized, sung and written about this “noblest of all passions” till love sick maidens blush with an ecstatic rapture and anemic, puny looking youths saunter jauntily along the streets […]

WHAT happens when for certain humane considerations a girl marries a man she doesn’t love? What does the other man with whom she is truly in love do under the circumstances? How does the husband

When Ranjit made Jogan, the critics and the public gasped in wonder, not only as it’s breath taking beauty and it’s soul stirring saga, but also at the indisputable fact that it was Ranjit that had made it. We were all carried away in an over whelming tide of enthusiastic applause and admiration to discover […]

Mr. K. Asif’s Hulchul starts with a bang and fizzles out by the time it reaches the end. The dramatic start, which the picture makes with the credit titles, leads one to expect a powerful story of c

The fact that a surging mass of humanity is to be found at the box office to claim the refund, during the interval on their tickets is in itself a sufficient commentary on the merit of Nirala. The ton

On October 11, 2017
Sold as an action-thriller, the trailer hinted at a gun toting Shaan defeating evil enemies with the power of one liners. Instead O21 is a surreal meditation on conflicting loyalties. Contemplative, deliberately paced and often disconcerting, it is a far better film than it appeared to be in its promotion, and therefore requires an audience […]
