BANK CHOR (2017)

Bank Chor is a confusing film. While the trailers will make you believe it to be a comedy, the film for a very large part remains a heist film with a twist in the tale. I went into it expecting comedy and after the initial 15-20 minutes of it, realized that I was not going…

HINDI MEDIUM (2017)

Hindi Medium is a delightful little film that will have you in splits for the duration of its runtime. It’s a film about our own superficiality. It’s a film about our take on a flourishing future and it’s a film about the extents we are ready to stoop down to ensure a blossoming career for…

BADRINATH KI DULHANIA (2017)

Badrinath Ki Dulhania turned out to be a surprisingly entertaining watch. At least that was the case for me in the first half, where Varun Dhawan proved once again that he may be a star child but he surely is a talented star child. The fact that the film hits on important social issues only…

MAKDEE (2002)

Makdee was Vishal Bharadwaj’s directorial debut. Before that, he was primarily a composer whose soulful music had found takers among the Indian masses. He also won numerous national awards for his music. My fondest memories of his music were that of two songs. “Pani pani re” from Maachis and “Chai Chap Chai” from Hu Tu…

KAMINEY (2009)

Vishal Bharadwaj’s Kaminey was different. It wasn’t your run of the mill’s thriller or gangster film and was in many ways one of those films that were ahead of its time. Being an ardent fan of directors like Guy Ritchie and Quentin Tarantino, the style and treatment of the film appeared all too well known for…

JOLLY LLB 2 (2017)

Jagdishwar Mishra aka Jolly (Akshay Kumar) is a lowly advocate in Lucknow where he works as an assistant for a famous advocate who thinks little of him. Jolly still has the guiles and intelligence to earn a buck here and there but nothing substantial. His idea of getting clients for himself is by having a…

FREAKY ALI (2016)

I have a colleague in my office who is known for his poor jokes (PJs). It all started with very few actually understanding them and many ridiculing the sheer insanity of the jokes. But with time we came to adore his PJs and as of now they make us laugh almost every day. Freaky Ali…

A FLYING JATT (2016)

A Flying Jatt is the kind of film that has the potential to put to grave the superhero film genre in India altogether. It is a film that is so stupid, cheesy and above all, so very disrespecting of the audience’s intelligence that watching it will give you brain damage and make you allergenic to…

GREAT GRAND MASTI (2016)

Great Grand Masti is an extension of what we got in Grand Masti. However it is much lesser fun this time around. A truck load of raunchy jokes, some serious cleavage show and a lot of double meaning dialogs are all that it has to entertain you with. The lead pair of Riteish, Aftab and…

HOUSEFULL 3 (2016)

As far as I am concerned, every Housefull movie till date has been unnecessary including the recent one. But I have to agree that this is the least irritating one. The reason is obvious. Sajid Khan is no longer at the helm of things and that quickly tones down the insanity levels. Chunky Pandey is…

KI & KA (2016)

The name Ki & Ka of the film is derived from LadKA and LadKI. The film tells a very relevant and thought provoking story in the most awkward manner conceivable. Yes! There were a few scenes which were really cringe worthy but sans that, I have to admit that the film had its heart in…

KAPOOR & SONS (2016)

Kapoor & Sons is a refreshing family drama after a while. We have seen numerous similar films in the past but the earnest manner in which the director approaches the story and the many nuances that it holds is more than enough to make this film a riveting watch. The film has a constant undercurrent…
