Jazbaa – a whole lot of jazbaa but nothing more

Jazbaa-Poster-Close-22092015-GossipTicket

Now that 2015 has come to a close we’re all busy compiling our ‘best’ lists. I am going to deviate from that a bit and start a category for Most Confusing Film. Hands down that award would go to Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa. The initial promo looked somewhat promising however as promotions of the film increased, my expectations decreased. Now that I have finally gotten around Read More →

Bin Roye – no tears here!

With every passing year Pakistani cinema has been raising the bar for the quality of their local production, performances and in general, the quality of their homegrown films. Artists and writers are finally looking beyond their episodic dramas and are now aiming to put up stories on a more grand scale, reach out to a wider audience, bring the families into the cinema hall and Read More →

This has not happened in a while for me however Prakash Kovelmundi’s Inji Iduppazhagi (Size Zero in Telugu) has broken this dry spell. Kanika Dhillon has penned a film that is entertaining from start to finish with a screenplay that manages to keep you Read More →

Hamari Adhuri Kahani – Not all that adhuri

HAK380

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

Brother-Songs

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. A director with a brilliant debut film, Akshay Kumar’s first venture with the Dharma house, Sidharth Malhotra pushing the ‘student’ tagline away (again), THE Jackie Shroff making a rare appearance onscreen, Shefali Read More →

Bajrangi Bhaijaan – It’s all soul!

salman-bajrangi-480

Given the last two Salman releases I had very little hope from Bajrangi Bhaijaan. What I did have was faith in Kabir Khan and hope that brand ‘bhaijaan’ would not overpower the fine filmmaker’s vision. To my surprise much like Ek Tha Tiger this Kabir/Salman release also meets at a common ground, its 50% brand Kabir Khan and 50% brand Bhaijaan. Mainstream reviewers have called out Read More →
