The Y Factor

Jab Harry Met Sejal

Jab Harry Met Sejal

So we have had a moderately poor year at the BO this year in Bollywood. With Salman, Ranbir, Bacchhan films sinking faster than a rock, so all hopes were on King Khan to salvage this month from literally going down the toilet drain… alas I have repeatedly mentioned that Imtiaz Ali makes movies for himself and his own satisfaction, I cant say creative because there is nothing creative in getting a ...[Read More]

The Fate of the Furious

The Fate of the Furious

‘Hell Yeah, lets roll’ …. And roll it does right from the word go. I wasn’t a much F&F fan initially. But somehow Furious 4 got me interested with the interquel between part 2 and 3. Still seeing the opening sequence of the hijacking of the fuel tankers gives me a rush. Fast 5 saw the entry of Dwayne Johnson into the franchisee and the series has never been the same again. Who can forget Dom r...[Read More]

Naam Shabana

Naam Shabana

As the serious butt kicking, no nonsense agent, who stole the entire Kathmandu episode in Baby, this prequel was very much required to carry on the franchisee and the story of the only woman agent in an all boy gang. Written by Neeraj Pandey and directed by Shivam Nair, somehow, somewhere there seems to have been a disconnect in what was conceived and what was executed finally. So whilst we all kn...[Read More]

Badrinath ki Dulhania

Badrinath ki Dulhania

  This film is a tourism promotional ad for Jhansi, Kota and Singapore. The only difference being, the makers must have milked Singapore Tourism dry and it shows in the second half. Oscillating between Jhansi and Kota in the first half, where the 2 protagonist’s families hail from, Bansals from Jhansi and Trivedis from Kota. Shashank Khaitan nails it to the T with his dialogues and screenplay...[Read More]

Logan

Logan

  His time has come…   Set in 2029, with mutants reaching almost X-tinction, 3 lone rangers are eeking out their survival somewhere near El Paso. A degenerate Prof X (Patrick Stewart), the light fearing Caliban (Stephen Merchant) and a washed out, weary driver, drinking himself to death, Logan (huh??).   As always, mega corporates are trying to rule and ruin the world.

  After making the ‘why did he do it’ After Earth, I, along with countless of his fans, was beginning to wonder, when would he return to his original genre. Thank God, better sense prevailed sooner than later. So as hugely publicised, Kevin (James McAvoy) has kidnapped 3 young girls and locks them in a basement. The audience is presented the fact that Kevin suffers from DID, wherein he has 23...[Read More]

Rangoon

Rangoon

Reviewer 1 : A couple falls in love, but the girl has a benefactor/ sugar daddy who owes his loyalty to the ruling forces. Eventually love conquers all… starring Deepak Parashar as the freedom fighting lover, Ranjeeta as the confused girl in love and Raj Babbar as the Portugese serving benefactor, Armaan is an unofficial remake of Casablanca. Audience: Sorry, what was that? Reviewer 2: Am just rev...[Read More]

Kaabil

Kaabil

When this film was announced, it was a shocker for me, since have not seen any outside director score in Filmkraft, that too Sanjay Gupta, a man known for his inspired films which are more of style and colour, this time inspired by Broken. The plot is exactly as revealed in the trailers. A sweet blind couple falls in love, marries and is struck with a big blow in their lives, leaving them shattere...[Read More]

Raees

Raees

Rahul Dholakia returns to Gujarat again, this time to present a gangster’s ‘fictional’ tale of rise to power, Raees Khan. Full marks to be given to Shahrukh Khan for this valiant attempt. Being the star that he is, getting into the persona of Raees Khan, comes across so effortlessly for him, but am sure it wasn’t. He hits a home run in terms of nailing the character’s nuances and the Miyabhai/ Guj...[Read More]
