Bajrangi Bhaijaan – It’s all soul!


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 →

36 Vayadhinile – The better version of English Vinglish!


Whilst it is great to see films like English Vinglish and 36 Vayadhinile being made and celebrated, it is equally sad that films like these are considered to be so left wing and therefore such a big deal is made about them when in actuality they should just be another film.

Completely phaso-ed! – Hasee Toh Phasee

Written to perfection by Harshvardhan Kulkarni this Vinil Matthew debut directorial is perhaps the most flawless rom-com (in my humble eyes!) in a long time! It balances the escapist nature of a rom-com with a very heavy dosage of reality. Read More →

Gori Tere Pyaar Mein


No doubt that the impression Punit Malhotra left on me with his first film meant that I wasn’t particularly psyched for the rest of his film career. But at the same time we’ve seen directors do a complete 180 and prove us wrong and how, case on point: Nikhil Advani! To my surprise and relief Punit does much the same with his second film.
