Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2

Thanks to the only retained character from the original, Chhote Pandit, played by Rajpal Yadav, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has some occasional moments of laughter. Other than that, this Anees Bazmee sequel is just an assembled comedy that doesn’t seem to have any idea about the genre of the first part. Frankly, nobody expects anything spectacular… Continue reading Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2




Heropanti 2

Towards the end of the movie Heropanti 2, there is a moment where director Ahmed Khan made Nawazuddin Siddiqui say the line, “What an actor! He should get an Oscar” about Tiger Shroff. The word audacity feels like an inferior one to describe the arrogant confidence of Ahmed Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala. Every week there… Continue reading Heropanti 2




Runway 34

When I saw the trailer of Runway 34, I was skeptical about its outcome because of how it was doing the image building of its main characters. Having seen the film, I would say actor-director Ajay Devgn has managed to strike a fair enough balance in creating a thriller that will keep you interested till… Continue reading Runway 34




Sharmaji Namkeen

The kind of hate The Kashmir Files generates against Muslims through its… Continue reading The Kashmir Files




Bachchhan Paandey

If the script is interesting, then even a bad filmmaker won’t be able to mess it up. This is a statement I have heard many people say in interviews. Well, the new film Bachchhan Paandey from Akshay Kumar has the potential to make those people rethink that statement. Bachchhan Paandey is very much a scene-by-scene… Continue reading Bachchhan Paandey




Jalsa

Jalsa, the new Suresh Triveni film, manages to create a conflict that looks extremely layered. The first 40 minutes of the movie are so gripping in terms of intensity that I didn’t even bother looking at the film’s duration. But post that, we see Vidya Balan’s Maya Menon trying to deal with the repercussions of… Continue reading Jalsa




Badhaai Do

What made Badhaai Ho from Amit Sharma so enjoyable was its comedy texture in presenting a movie with a heartwarming ending. Badhaai Do, the spiritual sequel to the 2018 film, might not be as entertaining as the Neena Gupta starrer. But the topic they have decided to address is more complex, and the margin for… Continue reading Badhaai Do
