Raavan Movie Review – Completely Devoid of Soul

Even if there were ten heads, it would still not make this film watchable

It hurts me a great deal to say this but Mani sir has got it all wrong this time. After gems like Roja, Bombay, Yuva and Guru, Raavan is a half baked, badly scripted film which feels forced because there is no feel or flow in it. The story is based on Ramayana and is an attempt to make people see Raavan’s side of the epic saga. Raavan aka Beera (Abhishek) kidnaps Ragini (Aishwarya) to take revenge from Dev (Vikram) for being responsible of Beera’s sister’s death. I don’t think there is any need to give details into the story because, well, there are none. It’s too simple a story which runs on a single track, at the same pace towards an ending which we are all too familiar with. ... 

Ishqiya Movie Review – A Cinematic Treat

Out of all the feelings people have in the world, love is definitely the most unpredictable. Ishqiya also follows the path of love rather unpredictably.  It starts off with Vidya lying on the bed humming ‘Ab mujhe koi’ sung beautifully by Rekha Bhardwaj, the camera pans to her face and at that very moment  you know you are watching something special. ... 

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. ...

Actor Irrfan Khan poses for a portrait to promote the film "Puzzle" during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Khan has appeared in films such as "Slumdog Millionaire" and "Jurassic World," but now the actor is facing the biggest challenge of his life as he undergoes treatment for cancer in London
Film Irrfan Khan, Park City, USA - 22 Jan 2018

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 Chanakya 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. ...
