In spite of persistent pressure from friends and family to promote the book, I somehow managed to refrain from it. Today, Social Media has become a domain of new aspiring authors to promote their passion. However, for me, I still preferred the old school author persona – I will write. If it’s worth, it will … More Book Review – The Shoelace
There is a bunch of Bollywood reviewers on the internet, who have garnered a good reader-base over a period of time. And if you study their review patterns, you will soon figure out which celebrities & which films they are bound to favour and which they will rip apart. I doubt if these reviewers are … More One by Two – Good Film, Unfairly Reviewed
A story like Jai Ho, requires a lot of commitment. It’s a concept that has the power to change the mass mentality and influence the way the society thinks and functions. History is proof that movies have influenced the society time and again. A psychological study, I once read gave a detailed description of … More Jai Ho, Salman!
A Good “Bad” Film! That’s what it is!! I avoided seeing this movie knowing that it’s not up to the mark. Then, based on the reviews, I decided not to watch it. But just last week, I ended up watching it. Clearly, this is not meant to be a negative review, for I somehow found … More Movie Review: Besharam
The film may do good business at the box office. It definitely has all the ingredients of becoming a “hit”. The audience was in splits at several points during the film. I overheard a fellow audience saying – “It was better than Ram-Leela”. What are these ingredients? First off, it’s a Prabhudeva film. Since, his … More Movie Review: R… Rajkumar
Walked out of the theater during the interval. So, this is half-part review, or rather this itself should say it all. Tigmanshu Dhulia, clearly missed his mark with this one. Bullet Raja was supposed to be clear-cut action flick with a “regional” flavor. These days, that kinda flicks have pretty good chances of success. … More Movie Review: Bullet Raja
I watched Manorama – Six Feet Under a while back and instantly liked it. Detective stories are rare in Bollywood, which only made films on select trusted genres. There was a dearth of good crime investigation stories. In such a time, Manorama dared to weave a detective-mystery story. Not just that, the setup was laid … More Did Manorama come from ChinaTown?
Passion! That’s what Rock On is all about! On the story front there are no surprises. It’s predictable throughout. But inspite of that the film manages to strike the emotional chord of the audience. Don’t go with an expectation of watching a crazy wild rock-based movie. It’s more of a drama that revolves around four … More Rock On!
Good enough though not scary Watched this last Saturday. Of the many things I remember about it, the most distinct memory is of the uncontrollable giggles and laugh from the audiences. If not anything the movie was entertaining. Though I still asking myself, what did they found that funny? It’s not an out-n-out horror film; … More Phoonk
Bad but not intolerable ! I wanted to watch this film just to see how bad it was. Every single comment I heard about it was oscillating from Bad to Worse. That made me wonder – I have seen the best he can be when he is good, why not see how good he is … More Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag
