• …it’s texture, dialogue, and performances – make it good enough to hold up in a repeat viewing. And that’s a lot more than you can say about the majority of other films.

  • I thought it looked spectacular! The cinematography, costume, art, stunts… I’ve never seen anything like it in a local film.

  • A coming-of-age movie with senior folk. How refreshing!

    Club 60’s heart lies in its writing – specifically dialogue – and the stellar show by its cast. The screenplay breaks many contemporary conventions in its construction. Scenes take their time and meander; there is a barrage of innocuous interactions reflecting lives without frills. The smallest doses of happiness and sorrow found in routine banter and plot rendered meaningless. But all of this contributes in measures big and small to the fabric of the film, much like a Mike Leigh movie.

  • Sanjay Leela Bhansali is back. Taking a break from producing uncharacteristic bilge like Rowdy Rathore, he storms the helm again to have a go at what he knows best – using Bollywood elements like song, dance, larger-than life heroes and their epic love affairs -and attempting to redefine the form of Hindi movies and telling them in his own auteur style.

  • Unlike lead actors in Hindi films who attempt to shine through their sheer energy, or by underplaying, or simply carrying off a certain look; Raj Kumar Yadav bares his soul like few others have in the past.

  • Could a simple lunchbox and its contents change lives? One of the best films to come out of India in a long time, director Ritesh Batra answers the question in his little masterpiece, The Lunchbox.

  • Should you watch Shuddh Desi Romance? Yes. It’s light, it’s unconventional, it’s still Bollywood, and it breaks the fourth wall in more ways than one. Ignore the hiccups, and there’s no reason you won’t enjoy it.

  • This charged political thriller, despite its flaws, is a leap in the right direction – away from that other “Madras”-titled film and its ilk – that deserves our support. If nothing else, it’ll give you an acute insight and a timely reminder of the turmoil our neighbors went through and our country’s confounding contribution to the matter.

  • BA Pass is dark, even for a noir. Scenes in the sunshine come as a relief from the murky depths of a landscape that’s Mukesh’s hell. There’s almost no positivity in the film. Nothing to cling on to when you’re done. This is a rare experience in a Hindi film.

  • Ship Of Theseus’ great victory is that it got made at all. It is content that you’ve seldom experienced on a big screen. Celebrity backing, studio support, and a proper release gives hope to the next generation of storytellers who want to express themselves and reach the world.
