Sudhir Mishra’s products always raise a certain amount of curiosity due to his taut handling. Yeh Saali Zindagi, his last film was a brilliant movie according to me, which if correctly marketed, would have seen a better response. So post Yeh Saali Zindagi, Mishra presents us with Inkaar.
Vishal Bhardwaj’s best work till date have been adaptations of Shakespeare, Maqbool (Macbeth) and Omkara (Othello). Post which his gangsta flick Kaminey was also very good. 7 Khoon Maaf left a rather sour taste in the mouth. What becomes of MKBKM, a rather difficult name to grab at first, will be decided only by time.
A montage of such calls, with people trying to give uncertain hope to the listeners, marks the beginning of this film on the fateful day of 9/11.
David O. Russell gave us the fantastic biopic, The Fighter in 2010. A deglam version of the ‘Rocky’ story. The predictability of the end had no impact on the film’s dysfunctional family issues, instead it came across as the icing on the cake, of which we all had become so intensely involved in the baking process.
Daniel Day Lewis (There will be Blood, Last of the Mohicans) is one actor whose films always inspire. His method acting always leaves one wondering, what this part time shoemaker of Florence, will do next.

It is but natural that when the entire team comes together wit...[Read More]
Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, was a huge turning point in the life of Director Milan Luthria. It showcased to the entire world what this man was capable of. Following it up with an equally big hit, if not bigger would pose a challenge for even the stalwarts of the industry. So after a year, Milan presents The Dirty Picture.
Rohit Dhawan does carry a lot of baggage. Being the son of the king of comedies (although in the ‘90s), David Dhawan does it have its expectations. (or after Rascals, does it?). But, yes, it opens many doors for one and hence we have Desi Boyz.
Imtiaz Ali made a lovely debut with Socha Na Tha, but it was his follow up product, Jab We Met, which made the entire world realise what a great storyteller he is. The super successful JWM, was followed by a rather insipid Love Aaj Kal. Now he presents, ROCKSTAR.
