Tanhaji

Hyper nationalism is the flavor of the season and we have been seeing Bollywood revisiting every historical event and characters and showing their valor on screen. Padmaavat, Panipat, Kesari and a few more are there and all of them have pretty much the same thing getting repeated through different characters. I do agree with the […]




Final Thoughts

I feel fatigued seeing so many movies with hyper-nationalism in its treatment and if you are still okay with the cinematic quality of a movie like Kesari, this muddled CGI saga might work for you.

Chhapaak

Just when the audience was getting used to the face of Malti, an acid attack survivor played by Deepika Padukone in Chhapaak, director Meghna Gulzar decides to show us how Malti looked like before she was attacked. And the entire audience reacted to that silent visual with a huge “Uffff”. Even if you are a […]




Final Thoughts

Chhapaak is a genuine and hard-hitting social commentary that one should watch.

Good Newwz

There is a brand of movies that Akshay Kumar has done in the recent past that came as an entertaining package trying to give lectures to people about women’s issues and certain other societal misconceptions. Good Newwz directed by Raj Mehta somewhere falls under the same category. What if subjects similar to Vicky Donor and […]




Final Thoughts

Good Newwz is more like a popcorn flick that you watch, laugh and forget.

Dabangg 3

When the first Dabangg came, even though I wasn’t a huge fan of that movie, on the whole, I really enjoyed watching Salman Khan playing this irreverent cop Chulbul Pandey. The second part was a forgettable attempt to cash in on the likability of the character and when it comes to the third part the […]




Final Thoughts

A superstar showing his arrogance by taking his audience for granted: that’s Dabangg 3.

The anger in people was such that […]

Vishal Jethwa’s terrific performance and the cat and mouse game will give you some satisfaction of watching a thriller movie.

Bala

Amar Kaushik is the guy who made last year’s crackling horror-comedy Stree. This year he comes up with another comedy named Bala, starring the man of unusual choices, Ayushmann Khurrana.  If you compare it with the standard of a Stree or a Badhaai Ho (two recent successful films of the actor and the director) Bala […]




Final Thoughts

On the whole Bala was an entertaining film for me. It had that level of preachy feel which I can forgive if there is enough fun to compensate for it.

Housefull 4

Housefull 4 is a comedy movie according to the makers of the movie. But watching this movie along with an audience who laughs at the ridiculous jokes in the movie will make the experience drastically different. The reality that, a sick comedy like Housefull 4 has an audience in this big country, will hit you […]




Final Thoughts

Bala Singh gifts pig manure to Raja Surya Singh Rana in this movie and it is actually a metaphor of the quality of this film; the worst shit among all shits.

Final Thoughts

With well written vulnerable characters, terrific performances and a refreshing take on the story, Shonali Bose has channeled the energy in the right direction.
