Babli Bouncer

If I had no clue that Madhur Bhandarkar directed Babli Bouncer, it would have been just one of those forgettable comedies for me. Seeing the sheer blandness in the new Tamannaah Bhatia starrer, one would wonder how a national award-winning director like Bhandarkar thought this was enough to entertain people. With shoddy writing and shallow… Continue reading Babli Bouncer


When I hear the song Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast, it somewhere takes me to those childhood memories of watching it on Doordarshan.
