TOILET : EK PREM KATHA (2017)

If there is one Khan doing different stuff apart from Aamir Khan then that is Akshay Kumar. Be-loved-ly referred to as the fourth Khan of Bollywood, Akshay once again proves to be bigger than a film that he is starring in and almost single-handedly drives that film to a height higher than what the director…

MUNNA MICHAEL (2017)

Why do they even make films like Munna Michael? Why do they even let Sabbir Khan direct another film after inhuman tortures like Heropanti and Ya! Ya oh sorry, Baaghi. Why do they even let Tiger Shroff appear on screen and mouth dialogs? Why do they even think that making a cardboard heroine run around…

TUBELIGHT (2017)

There has been a lot said and done about this film. While it has to be admitted that Tubelight turned out to be a lot lesser films both in terms of business and sheer quality than what was expected, one has to agree that it does deserve a word or two for why it turned…

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…
