A recent courtroom drama came with the concept of NO MEANS NO. The victim in that drama, turns lawyer in this film to prove their theory of US V/S THEM….. that is the impact and beauty of this movie. Anubhav and DOP Ewan Mulligan manage to create a Varanasi full of the rush of life as they know it, with its religious threads intertwined at the same time the claustrophobia of the courtroom, especia...[Read More]

  Getting Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan together in today’s times must have been thought by quite a few directors, I guess, but getting them in suitable roles might have posed as a challenge for them. Set in good ol’ Vile Parle East, the story is about Dattatraya Vakharia (Bachchan) and his son, Babulal Vakharia (Kapoor). It is as simple as that. A story which shows that the job of a fath...[Read More]

Avengers: Infinity War

REVIEW BY HAMZA POONAWALA 10 ago, MARVEL started something known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), with Iron Man. In those 10 years, they made 18 films, all leading to one conclusion. 10 years later, Destiny Arrives…. Avengers: Infinity War, is the nineteenth film in the MCU, and one part of the epic conclusion of the MCU. 10 years’ worth of build up has lead us to this point. But the real q...[Read More]

October

  A rebellious, cankerous hotel intern suddenly realises the essence, meaning and purpose of life, when his colleague falls off the hotel 3rd floor and he later realises that the last words she spoke were asking about his whereabouts! October is not a love story or a slice of life film about today’s generation and their aspirations. It is a poem. And just like all those poems that we tried to...[Read More]

    You know the plot, so no time wasting on it. Irrfan discovers his wife, Kirti (Pink) is cheating on him with Arunodaya Singh (Yeh Saali Zindagi) and instead of resorting to any alpha male violence, he takes an alternate route, of blackmailing the lover. The trick is, the ransom is not a huge amount to live his life lavishly. It is only to cover his next EMIs! Whilst Abhinay and his c...[Read More]

Baaghi 2

Ahmed Khan is back in the Director’s seat after a gap of 11 years since his last debacle, Fool & Final a remake of the British hit, Snatch. Baaghi 2 is a direct remake of the 2016 Telugu hit, Kshanam, which itself could be loosely said to have been inspired by the Jodie Foster 2005 starrer, Flightplan. Without getting into story spoilers, Ronnie (Tiger), a valiant army Major, is called to Goa ...[Read More]

Raid

The debacle of Ghanchakkar, has cost the talented director 5 years to make a comeback. He uses two of the best actors in the trade to deliver his 128 minute drama, RAID. Let me tell you where the film suffers, its way too long post interval, has two songs too many in the same segment, the romantic song and the climax song both could have been easily done away with, cos they only make the film look...[Read More]

Black Panther

  REVIEW BY HAMZA POONAWALA The last time we saw the Black Panther, it was in Captain America: Civil War, and the minute I saw him, I had a million questions running through my head. Such as “Who is he?”, “What are his origins?”, “How is his entire suit fully bullet proof?”, and so on and so forth. Well folks, this film does not only answer those questions, it leaves me with more, and in awe....[Read More]

Aiyaary

With his string of successful and more than that REALISTIC films, Neeraj Pandey has made a niche for himself.  So when Aiyaary was announced for a 26 Jan release, obviously all were waiting. With an all star cast of his favourites, Manoj Bapayee, Anupam Kher, Naseeruddin Shah, Kumud Mishra and add to that Vikram Gokhale, Nivedita Bhattacharya, Siddarth Malhotra, Rakul Preet Singh and Adil Hussain,...[Read More]

Well a lot has been spoken about this film and the taboos it tries to break by using the real life story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man from Coimbatore, who really spent his life and created this revolution in rural India. So I wont get into the subject of the film, since that is its USP. What I would like to write in this review is that one has to give it to the makers, Balki, Twinkle Khan...[Read More]
