• Frustrated with the interference from the Gandhis and the apparent unwillingness of Manmohan Singh to set the record straight, Baru resigns and writes his memoir, The Accidental Prime Minister (accidental as Singh never contested an election but was a Rajya Sabha member). Sales are sluggish, until the PMO denounces the book: at which point, it becomes a bestseller. Gutte should hope his film meets with the same good fortune.

  • Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta shine in this charming, slice-of-life film that tackles the stigma attached to the intimate lives of older people…

  • Stree is boring, slow and stretched. But a few fun jokes and the overall light-hearted treatment makes it a bearable watch.

  • Karwaan is a film that deals with dealing grief and life at large. It’s a film on existentialism. It’s a slice of life served with enough delicious toppings. Bite into it!

  • The film though, manages to have a light-hearted vibe and some of the scenes are genuinely funny. The music is also pretty hummable. I found myself almost dancing to Fu Bai Fu. And Acche Din by Amit Trivedi is a good spin on the famous phrase used cleverly to comment on Fanney Khan’s financial situation.

    But overall Fanney Khan lacks depth or purpose.

  • Soorma isn’t without flaws. It gets manipulative in places. The happy banter before the gunshot scene is written to establish Sandeep as a happy-go-lucky character and ooze out more sympathy for him. The song montages against a gruelling training session is also not too original. Hindi films will have to come up with better narratives to depict grit and determination in our sports heroes!
    Shad Ali finally redeems himself after the disastrous Kill (Me Gently) Dill by bringing Sandeep Singh on celluloid and sharing his inspiring story. Watch it over the weekend.

  • Salman Khan’s Action Thriller is Tough to Endure…

  • Veere Di Wedding looks exactly like a Balaji production, all gloss and glamour and hardly any soul.

  • John Abraham despite all his limitations as an actor is extremely earnest not only in his performance but also in his intention to tell the Pokharan tale. His most honest moment comes towards the end when he breaks down in tears. Boman Irani is a delight to watch. He gives a controlled and classy performance as the PM’s secretary.

    Despite resorting to some very obvious tricks, Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran remains noble in its intention of telling a historic tale that made every Indian proud. It’s a good one time watch.

  • Raazi, besides celebrating Sehmat’s heroism that led to India’s victory in the 1971 war, is an emotionally intelligent film. It makes you question a lot about warring countries and world peace and that’s always a good feeling to walk out with.
