RAAG DESH (2017)

Raag Desh is directed by one of my favorite Indian directors, Tigmanshu Dhulia and chronicles the story of three officers of Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army who are captured by the British and tried for murder, disloyalty to the British Indian Army and abetment of murder. These trials were carried out in the Red…

DANGAL (2016) – Trailer Review

I generally don’t do trailer reviews but I have been waiting for this trailer since the first poster of the film surfaced. Sultan came in between and watching the lethargic action sequences, I kept asking myself weather Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan would be able to deliver a better picture or would it be another Dhoom…

M.S. DHONI : THE UNTOLD STORY (2016)

I would like to start this review by saying that Neeraj Pandey is one of my favorite directors in Indian cinema today. I love almost all his previous films including the Bengali film that he merely wrote and produced (Royal Bengal Tiger). M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story was supposed to be one of my favorite…

RAMAN RAGHAV 2.0 (2016)

Anurag Kashyap came across a lot of flak for Bombay Velvet which I didn’t think was as bad as the critics had us believing. What I came to know from a few interviews of him was that he immediately started working on Raman Raghav 2.0, a film based on the life of the nefarious serial…

VEERAPPAN (2016)

Veerappan is a remake of the Kannada film “Killing Veerappan” based on the life and fall of the dreaded brigand who terrorized people and police officials alike in his hay days. Ram Gopal Verma made an interesting film in Killing Veerappan and here he almost entirely re-shoots the film to make it tighter and as…

SARBJIT (2016)

Sarbjit is a weepy film! Sarbjit is loud! Sarbjit is labored and Sarbjit is over the top at many junctures. Let’s face it, it’s a film about a person who had a life and willfully dozed off into the the-then open borders between our countries and spent the rest of his life in a prison…

AZHAR (2016)

Azhar is the kind of film which when well made has the ability to both entertain and almost work as a PR vehicle for successfully altering the image of a tainted star. Cricket is more than a sport in this country and to make a film about a character as colorful as Azhar the director…

KILLING VEERAPPAN (2016)

Killing Veerappan is the latest offering from Ram Gopal Verma. He was my favorite Bollywood director at a point of time but over the years with films like Department, Agyaat, Aag, etc he has fallen from grace. The good thing is that he has been making some good films of late and beginning to strike…
