Kaminey Movie Review – Kaife Kaife, Aife Aife…..too fexy!!!!

Vishal Bhardwaj has made a couple of classics over the years and this is the third in line. But what’s different is the feel of this one. Its a Guy Ritchie style of film where action meets humour at places where you least expect. I will not reveal too much of the film because its the unexpected ride which is the USP of this film. ... 

Gulaal Movie Review – The End Of Democracy

Anurag Kashyap is indeed a special story teller. Even before the high praise from everywhere for Dev D could end he is back and how? Even this time the size of the canvas is same but how Anurag paints this one is very different from Dev D.The movie is a political drama based in the University where students take elections so seriously as if they were already in the Lok Sabha. ... 

Irrfan ‘The Mindblowing’ Khan

Irrfan Khan is not your regular hero but he is one of the rare breed of actors who can kick some serious butt even if he is pitted against your typical hero in his very own backyard. But he hasn’t reached such a stature overnight. It’s taken years of TV serials, numerous passable films and a lot of hard work. He got his first break in films with Mira Nair’s Salaam Bombay but unfortunately his scene was deleted before the release. He went on to play the role of Senapati in the famous Chankya on TV and was also seen in the award winning film Ek Doctor Ki Maut in 1991. Still, it wasn’t until 2003 that he was really noticed in India even though he did The Warrior which won the Alexander Korda Award for Best British Film. ... 

Dev D Movie Review – Cult To The Core

Emotional Atyachaar of the highest quality

Its not often that one comes across a cult film, one that becomes a benchmark for film makers for years to come. But the funny thing about such movies is that they very rarely appeal to the masses. Dev D is one such film which a lot of people just could not stand and others fell in love with it,  including me. Its just a question of whether the sensibilities of such a film hits  the right spot in your mind or not. ... 

Slumdog Millionaire Movie Review – A Millionaire for sure but an Oscar?

 

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 🙂  ...
