Hamari Adhuri Kahani – Not all that adhuri


Naturally when you watch a film months after release your expectations is clouded by reviews, tweets, Facebook statuses, debatable BO numbers and so much more. This can have one of two effects. I either expect more than I get or I get more than I expected. Mohit Suri’s Hamari Adhuri Kahani falls in the latter category, thankfully. Though quite a realist in life, my choice in love stories Read More →

Brothers Movie Review


After a blockbuster debut film Karan Malhotra returns to the screen with another action drama. Coincidently this time too he directs a remake. Brothers had quite a bit going from it just purely based on credits roll.

Why do we not write about a 36 year old woman? Heck I don’t Read More →

Khoobsurat – And they all lived happily ever after!


This review intentionally makes no comparison of Khoobsurat with its namesake which is a par excellence classic of Hrishikesh Mukherjee When you have a larger than life personality offscreen you films will undoubtedly suffer from preconceived notions that may just hurt its chances with the audiences.

To review a movie that connects with you at a philosophical level is always a challenge because you cannot really pinpoint what made that movie experience great for you. All you know is that it was. Highway is one of those movies for me. It is the second time Imitiaz Ali steps outside the box and simply delivers a story without any inhibitions (the first Read More →
