Murder 2 (2011) – Review

By |July 31st, 2011|

The mystery of Murder 2 was: is it an actual sequel to Murder? Is it a horror movie? You’ll just have to watch it to find out, and I did. Most directors are headed the sequel or prequel way these days. Though Murder had […]

No One Killed Jessica (2011) – Review

By |May 29th, 2011|

Every once in a while Bollywood brings out a political thriller which is bound to unleash a number of emotions in the audience. Last year it was Rajneeti and this year it’s No One Killed Jessica. Despite the fact that this one might not […]

Game (2011) – Review

By |May 16th, 2011|

When it comes to films starring Abhishek Bachchan, one is somewhat wary. Often times it’s because despite the hype, many (if not most) of AB Junior’s films turn out to be duds. For every Yuva or Guru, there is a Raavan, Bus Itna Sa […]

Dum Maro Dum (2011) – Review

By |May 15th, 2011|

“Goa meri jaan, jannat ki shaan,” are the opening lines of Dum Maro Dum and the opening scenes of the movie show you Goa like you haven’t probably ever seen before.  The first few scenes tell you that this movie is going to have […]

7 Khoon Maaf (2011) – Review

By |March 27th, 2011|

7 Khoon Maaf, as the name suggests, is a movie about murder. However, contrary to popular belief, Priyanka isn’t really a typical villain. She in fact plays the role of Susanna, a sad woman who only wants true love in life. Her fate, however, […]

Mahal (1949)

By |November 21st, 2010|

Bombay Talkies Mahal is a story of ghosts, spooks, apparitions, jitters, quivers, bats and snakes. It succeeds in giving one the creeps, but through more causes than one. In the initial stage the spine tingling chill of weird horror which slowly […]

Hisss (2010)

By |November 7th, 2010|

Once the movie has ended (if you have managed to actually watch it till it ends) the only thing anybody would say is: “what the hell was that?!”

Perhaps the fact that Hisss has an international female director created high expectations from the movie. Also, […]

Ek Second…Jo Zindagi Badal De… (2010)

By |July 15th, 2010|

Cleverly nestled between an I Hate Luv Storys and Rajneeti trailer was a 30 second promo on local cable – ‘Fasale Bahara Hoon Mai’ was the name of the track, which saw former Femina Miss India Nikita Anand seducing a frigid [gasp!] Moammar Rana […]

Kites (2010)

By |June 13th, 2010|

Kites has made Bollywood attain a completely different level, much higher than any other movie has ever been able to reach before. As many skeptics would want to argue, Kites was anything but Indian. There were barely any traditional Indian elements; there wasn’t much […]

Darr (1993)

By |April 24th, 2010|

Cast: Sunny Deol, Juhi Chawla, Shah Rukh Khan

Director: Yash Chopra

Music: Shiv, Hari

Lyrics: Anand Bakshi

Capsule Review: Making a departure from the ultra-romanticism of Daag, Kabhi Kabhie and Chandni, Yash Chopra swerved fluently into the sinister with this film. As the psychologically disturbed lover-boy who can’t […]
