The Wonder Kid
The Wonder Kid

I don’t wanna get into the habit of pulling down the expectation of everyone but i don’t even wanna praise something just because its got an Oscar nomination. Having said that Slumdog by no means is a bad film. In fact its a superb film, one that takes you on a ride which is fast, crisp and exhilarating. The cast is fantastic specially the small kid who plays Jamal(junior most) along with Dev Patel and Anil Kapoor who plays the two faced host with perfection. Even the others like Irfaan Khan and Saurabh Shukla fit in very well. Also there are some scenes that will stay with you forever like the young Jamal running covered in shit to take the Big B’s autograph or the eye popping beggar scene followed by a heart wrenching chase. ... 

Album Review Dilli 6 – Mastano Ki Dilli

Just when India or rather the world was praising Alla Rakha Rahman on his mesmerizing compositions for Slumdog he came up with another gem right in the beginning of 2009 to follow up 2008, which was one of the best years in bollywood for him. Four big releases, four super hits – Jodha Akbar, Jaane Tu …, Yuvraaj and Ghajini. So i was really curious to know what we’ll get to hear from this genius in Delhi 6. And so I heard, i heard and i heard 🙂  ...

Meow Meow?

Ghajini Movie Review – Revenge was never this sweet

Movie Review Chicken Run

It’s Poultry in Motion

How many times have we seen a brilliant idea or concept go to waste because it wasn’t executed well? The answer is A LOT!! But In the case of Chicken Run, the latest offering from DreamWorks Studios in collaboration with Ardman Animations there is no such problem. In fact it’s a perfect example of a good concept executed to perfection.  ... 

Movie Review Monsoon Wedding

A Real Wedding

Beautiful is how I would choose to describe this movie even though there are numerous other adjectives that would come to one’s mind (including mine) while watching this film. I say beautiful because it’s a movie about different relationships and it brings out each and every one of those relationships with utmost simplicity.  ...
