SATYA (1998)

Satya has been one of those films that I must have seen the most number of times. I watched it, re-watched it and re-watched it yet again and still, it remains as fresh as it was the first time I saw it. I have stopped trying to decipher its mechanism and treatment and have decided…

BLACK FRIDAY (2004)

Black Friday is the definitive Anurag Kashyap film of all times. It is in so many ways better than his most acclaimed film “Gangs of Wasseypur”. This was a film which was banned for a long period of time because the authorities felt that if this film released before the Bombay blast verdict was declared,…

BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN(2015)

Bajrangi Bhaijaan could easily be Salman Khan’s best film till date. It effortlessly betters the social lessons left over by “Jai Ho” or even the shamelessly mass entertaining “Kick”. This film for once will make you sentimental and I was particularly amused at the manner in which Kabir Khan has mellowed down Salman Khan’s persona…

THE LUNCHBOX(2013)

With the flurry of praise and critical acclaim coming in for The Lunchbox, anyone who dares to speak a word against it will invite the wrath of the thinking moviegoers society. But After sitting through this approximately two hours long flick, I couldnt help but ask myself, Is it really worth the amount of praise…

GANGS OF WASSEYPUR PART II

When in the middle of a picture one starts exchanging sms’ , one has to agree to the fact that there is something wrong with the movie and that’s exactly what I realized sitting through this almost three hour long magnum opus if we may call it so. I was thrilled by Gangs Of Wasseypur….

GANGS OF WASSEYPUR

Every Anurag Kashyap movie has given has something to ponder upon. He has always attempted a wide plethora of themes and more often than not, came out all guns blazing. His success in getting people’s attention is well documented in the fact that “Black Friday” was banned in India for a long period sighting reasons…

DELHI BELLY

Delhi Belly created a huge fuss and it proved to be an even bigger hit especially with the Indian multiplex going youth. After sitting thought this movie now I know exactly why. Delhi Belly is probably the most profane movie to have come out of bollywood till date and it does it with style.Not for…
