• At the end of this rather long movie, Alia asks ‘What do you see in this story? Kalank or love?’

    I saw beauty at its emptiest. You won’t be able to look away. But you won’t feel anything either.

  • ‘Kesari devotes a significant chunk of its script to brandish Akshay’s might as the dauntless, magnanimous, Sardar, Havildar Ishar Singh.’ ‘To his credit, the actor is a picture of restraint and righteousness as the worldly-wise Sardar on a mission…

  • For a picture is a moment, it doesn’t commit, it contains.
