I am a die-hard SRK fan, but I won’t watch Raees

The much-awaited Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) starrer Raees, released in January 2017, seems loosely based on the life of notorious Gujarati Mafioso Abdul Latif. Latif was a gambler, a hired assassin, bootlegger and extortionist par excellence. He was also involved in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts and on the run till he was killed by the police in an encounter in 1997. Raees has, perhaps, sketched Latif’s life with all the charm and halo one expects from an SRK starrer. Like all other SRK fans, I wait for his films with bated breath. Such is my King Khan mania that I have never missed ...

Aditya Chopra’s ‘Befikre’ is even worse than his ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayengay (DDLJ) is an all-time classic for all, especially for the 90’s generation who can’t hear anything bad against the movie. DDLJ’s overwhelming success made Aditya Chopra one of the most prominent filmmakers of Bollywood. The success that followed after is owed to his luck and strong casting sense. Movies like Mohabbatein which featured Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Ashwariya Rai is one such example. Unfortunately, Chopra’s third attempt, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, received below average/mixed reviews. After an eight-year hiatus, Chopra is back in business with Befikre. This movie, featuring Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor, is all about being carefree and carpe diem. Dharam (Ranveer Singh) ...

The exoticness of Fawad Khan: Why one man is giving Indian women (and men) sleepless nights

To ask a Pakistani actor to go back to his country when there has allegedly been a terrorist attack on Indian soil by Pakistanis, is both stupid and understandable. The citizens ask for quick retaliation and, as always, people in the world of arts, culture and film are the softest targets. The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), sensing the public pulse, cashed in on the anger and gave Pakistani actors and artists a 48-hour ultimatum to leave India. And mind you, a lot of Indians are irate with the presence of the Pakistani artists in India. That does not make them right or ...

The verdict is out: Presenting Bollywood’s most popular versus most impactful movies from 2015

2015 was a mixed bag of a year for Bollywood. On one hand, we saw a lot of new-age filmmakers come up with some really off-beat stuff, while on the other, we were subjected to some same old, regressive, masala films. The classic confusion that every movie critic faces in picking the top films of the year is whether to go with flicks that have Box Office tills ringing or go with movies that set one’s own heart fluttering. I have simply avoided the whole dilemma by including both. So without any further ado, here are the top five popular movies ...

“Bajirao Mastani” deserves a solid four out of five stars!

Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one, of a handful filmmakers, who has the talent to create a larger than life experience for his viewers. The cinematic prowess he displayed in “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam” and “Devdas” was exemplary. His latest endeavour, “Bajirao Mastani”, however, has surpassed even his own tremendous standards. Ranveer Singh is a prolific actor eager to take on many different roles. His ability to appropriate every character he plays is quite impressive. If you are still in awe of his depiction of Ram from “Ramleela”, prepare to be blown away by his newest venture. Photo: Facebook Deepika ...

Dil Dhadakne Do: A star-studded, elitist cruise

Having watched Zoya Akhtar’s latest flick Dil Dhadakne Do might give you a flashback to 2011, when Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was released, a movie directed by her as well. Although the story lines are not similar, the central message might be, to some extent, alike. However, it is up to the viewers to judge whether this is accurate or just a personal opinion of this writer. Dil Dhadakne Do is a story about well-off and established people. It may come off as elitist, but Akhtar has directed it in a way in which the middle class can relate themselves ...

Finding Fanny: It’s never too late to find love

A seasoned and intellectual filmmaker needs only a few characters, a bit of detailing and some good incidents to share with his audience, to create magic. That’s what Homi Adajania proved with his latest venture Finding Fanny.  The entire movie revolves around five main characters, a grungy old Dodge and a not-so-lucky cat. Adajania’s first movie, Being Cyrus, was all about Parsi families and their intrigues, which turned out to be quite a hit since it was something a lot different than the usual masala flicks, released back in 2005. After almost nine years, he marks another movie based on a typical Goa lifestyle. ...

Gunday: A macho masala from the 70s

Director cum writer, Ali Abbas Zafar waited a couple of years after the release of his debut ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’, a comedy hit of 2011, to entice filmgoers with an action packed crime thriller. This time, Zafar has replaced the genre of a light romantic comedy with a nice mash-up of 70s’ action films to present the perfect commercial movie – Gunday. If you are a fan of Amitabh Bachchan, particularly of his angry, young man image and classics like Sholay, Don and Kala Pathar, then Gunday is a big treat for you. It’s all about action, double-dealing, revenge tangled with friendship, deceit, romance and betrayal. The film ...

Ram-Leela: Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s visual treat to the world!

The moment I saw the first promo of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Ram-Leela, I decided I had to watch it. I did not think that it would change my views about world cinema, nor was it the most captivating promo one would ever see; but it did look absolutely stunning. I knew that it would be nothing less than a visual treat. However, before you classify me as a die-hard fan of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, let me clarify. I am not a huge Bhansali fan, I particularly did not like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (HDDCS) or Devdas and I could not bear Saawariya for 15 minutes. Having said that, ...
