Talaash – Movie Review

Tags: , , , , , , , |

*The post does not contain any spoilers* Aamir Khan always manage to ruffle an unparalleled euphoria with the release of his movies. When an actor works in one movie a year, sometimes the hype acts as a deterrent even though the movie is exceptionally well made. Talaash is one such case. The movie begins with the

To be honest, enjoying reading modern Indian writers is a bit of a rarity for me. Whisking aside books that have made a big impact worldwide like The God of Small Things, Interpreter of Maladies, Midnight's Children, The Inheritance of Loss to name a few, I do not enjoy picking up an Indian author. Maybe

Vicky Donor – Movie Review

A few days back I posted this on my Facebook wall - "How is one supposed to leave his brain behind while watching a movie? This is one art I have tried to master numerous times and failed miserably." Everyone thought I might have seen Housefull 2. Well, I am glad that I went to

The first thing that will come to your mind after this movie ends is  - Thank God it's over! It's completely bland. There is a stupid storyline which I vaguely remember as it is completely forgettable. The chemistry between the lead pair is conspicuous by it's absence. The songs are stupid. There is even a

Who could have thought that Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu will spark off dazzling dinner table debates at home? I saw the movie with mom, dad, sis and Geet (yeah! Polly has been rechristened Geet. It was long overdue). Although the movie was above average, it broke many boundaries around how girls are expected to

Love Aaj Kal – Movie Review

I don't know if it was because I was Bollywood starved from the last six months or if it was because the movie was really good, the fact remains that I immensely enjoyed the movie. The Aaj and Kal of it (no spoilers) Jai(Saif Ali Khan) and Meera(Deepika Padukone) are a modern day couple living

After coming out of the theatre, I asked mom whether she liked the movie. Her answer was: Isn't this the kind of movie Sunny Deol used to do 20 years back?  I told her that she was a genius and this was the best one line in which the movie can be described. Somehow, the

I think I am getting old, because the people around me were laughing and enjoying the movie while I was yawning like a hippopotamus(I almost took a nap in the second half). Is this what happens when you are exposed to world cinema and have a yardstick to compare? Or am I seriously getting old!!!
