• See Haraamkhor for its original and audacious content and for the way the debutant director extracts a  gush of empathy from these bored characters even during their worst moments. Love, we always knew, as redemptive. But lust needn’t be all bad either.

  • Ok Jaanu is  far superior to the original Mani Ratnam film . Visually rich and textured to accommodate words and emotions in beautiful places in the heart, this is a tender and seductive return to form for a director who had lost his way, like Charutala in  Ok Jaanu.

  • Passengers  could have been  a half-jestful date movie about a pair thrown together as neither has anywhere else to go.  If only it had more to say about human nature when faced with such a galactic crisis.

  • Wish the film’s script displayed at least some level of guts and courage in dealing with issues such as excesses on reality television and rape . It hides in too many masked attempts at suspense and finally blows up in a  climax that has all the ingredients of  a dinner party gone hardly wrong.

  • At the very end when you thank God, Producer & Destiny for  liberty from the 2-hour claustrophobic tedium , a display card in the end-titles informs that we’ve just seen a film based on the worst oil rigging disaster in  the history of such disasters.

  • Force 2 is not a great one for spreading the message of peace.  It would rather do its job of giving us stunts that keep us riveted  to our seats.But it does bring up the issue of a very disturbing political tragedy  whereby those who are caught spying are disowned by  their own country. It’s a chilling thought on betrayal and loss, not quite the mood that this upbeat fiery and feisty actioner wants to dwell on. But it really can’t really help acquiring a conscience while taking a well-aimed shot at giving Hollywood stunts films a run for their money.

  • Rock On 2 is pretty much the most engaging and authentic sequel I’ve seen coming out  of Bollywood in recent times. If as Shakespeare volunteered, music is actually the food of love, then this film is a feast.

  • Shivaay is not the light fun crackerjack Diwali film you’d like to sit through this festive season. It is laden with an overbearing  darkness which eclipses all of the film’s efforts to pull us into its embrace.The proceedings get so edgy that they finally topple over.

  • This  is  a film that wears its heart proudly on its sleeve. Shot in glorious splashy colours and rustling up an African soundtrack that makes our hearts twirl and gambol, it sweeps you in its inspirational universe with  such earnest intentions , you wouldn’t want to say no to even its most manipulative moments when poverty almost becomes a pivotal character in the plot challenging the protagonists for a combat to the finish.

  • Mirzya makes us feel with time-stopping stillness when the only sound we hear is that of two hearts beating, that this is only was to feel love,  with a ferociousness that precludes options.No wonder we FALL in love. How else would a moviemaker like Mehrabe  able to catch the journey down  during the fall?
