    Horror as a genre has always received and treated with a very foster treatment in Bollywood. Barring a few RGV films (Raat, Bhoot) and a few stray cases here and there, horror doesn’t get the due it should, somehow. So we have Raj & DK, who gave us our first zombie film a few years ago, write and produce this horror comedy directed by debutante Amar Kaushik. The film has its eye ...[Read More]

Supposedly inspired by true events, this is all in all a fictional tale of how to make Lagaan with the feel of Chak De India and make the most out of the Independence Day weekend for the producers. And what better person than to take their in-house director to do so. There is a Mr. Wadia shown as the President of IHF in the film, whilst in reality it was Naval Tata. Whilst the character is all for...[Read More]

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]

Without getting into story spoilers, Ronnie (Tiger), a valiant army Major, is called to Goa ...[Read More]
