Bhuj: The Pride of India

The intention of the makers of the movie Bhuj: The Pride of India might be to show us how we fought back with unity to revamp a demolished airbase during the 1971 war. But the writing and making of this movie are so bad that it almost becomes a mockery of a historical event. With… Continue reading Bhuj: The Pride of India




Shershaah

The promo materials of Shershaah had a less jingoistic tone to its credit, and at a time when patriotism is getting used as a marketing tool, seeing that trailer kind of offered a bit of relief. But when it comes to the film, this Vikram Batra biopic is more of a template rather than a… Continue reading Shershaah




Dial 100

The issue with Dial 100 is that at no point this suspense thriller feels like it has any sort of suspense in it. The trailer itself has revealed all the vital plot points, and whatever is left gets shown at a very early stage in the movie. The only thing that makes this Rensil D’Silva… Continue reading Dial 100

14 Phere

But this movie directed by Devanshu Singh (who co-directed Chintu Ka Birthday) has no real aspirations to create an impact. The caste angle just becomes another trope they use to create a conflict… Continue reading 14 Phere




Hungama 2

If any of you have ever wondered how much actors elevates a scene that is already written, then I would say Hungama 2 is a great tool to understand that. Hungama 2, the latest movie by director Priyadarshan, is a remake of his own classic film Minnaram with an altered climax that falls in the… Continue reading Hungama 2




Toofaan

Toofaan, the new sports drama starring Farhan Akhtar as the central character, is a movie that relies heavily on the efforts of the actors to make the journey believable rather than the script to create something refreshing. Thus this movie feels like a constant fight between writers and performers. The underdog sports drama always had… Continue reading Toofaan




Haseen Dillruba

Be it Manmarziyan or Judgmental Hai Kya, the female protagonists in the scripts written by Kanika Dhillon are always on the atypical side. Her new movie, Haseen Dillruba, directed by Hasee Toh Phasee fame Vinil Mathew is also not different in terms of the writing of the female character. Yet again, Kanika uses the opportunity… Continue reading Haseen Dillruba
