FUKREY RETURNS- I will want it to return again.

If you have seen FUKREY and liked it, you have the right reference point to FUKREY RETURNS. The film will surely entertain you. It’s funny will be an understatement. It is crazy to an extent, and in many places beats the first of the series hollow. However, reference raises expectation and for them; it fails… Read More »

QARIB QARIB SINGLLE, A Delayed Review

I know I am late. Watching ‘QARIB QARIB SINGLLE’ was an after thought. My wife somehow was hell-bent on seeing it and I had to tag along. I am happy I saw the movie. In case you are also one of us who were iffy about it- JUST GO AHEAD ‘QARIB QARIB SINGLLE’. It can’t… Read More »

ITTEFAQ. Not Perfect but good enough. Movie review

Questions, Possibilities, Assumptions Are Three Things That Makes A Murder Crime Thriller Work. Akshay Khanna led ITTEFAQ Has All Of It And A Bit More, going by Indian Standards. Thankfully, the producer and director have kept ITTEFAQ at just over 100-minute of length. It is quite short compared to usual length of Indian films. However,… Read More »

A joy to watch this ‘HINDI MEDIUM’ Film

‘Hindi Medium’ brings alive the insult and the taunts that these two words hide. It cannot be explained and must be experienced or at least observed. How polarised are expectations of the desires and aspiration, when you change to an English medium school? The words ‘Hindi Medium’ stands-up and shouts loudly. It carries with it… Read More »

‘MERI PYAARI BINDU’ connects like only an imperfect love story can.

I was hooked on this movie from the time I first saw its trailer. The enthusiasm was tested by the dreadful slow not-so-encouraging WOM topped with its inability to collect the precious STARS in the review racket. I am happy; I was not disheartened by these road-breakers and ended up watching this soft smooth non-nonsense… Read More »
