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]
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]

This is not a political thriller. As a matter of fact, from what I know, this was supposed to be a pure documentary, till Akshay Kumar came on board and decided to make it in a docu-drama. So please do not expect an Argo or Baby here, which quite a few people are bound to do due to the setting of the movie. Ranjit Katyal (Akshay Kumar), a successful and shrewd businessman, who prefers to be known ...[Read More]
Released in 2011, this Tom Hardy / Joel Edgerton film, directed by Gavin O’Connor was a hard hitting, no holes barred film about a martial arts competition and 2 brothers pitched against each other in the same. Unfortunately, this Ekta Pathak Kapoor adapted screenplay, turns out to be far from that. In a 160 minute film, unfortunately, the competition starts after 110 minutes or so, by which time ...[Read More]
