Stories based in medicine almost always make for interesting cinema (and television, if the number of American TV shows are any account) and the basis of Ankur Arora Murder Case is no exception. Producer Vikram Bhatt and director Suhail Tatari take the engagement level a notch higher by basing it on real incidents, but the [...]
Fukrey is a smartly directed light comedy of four loafers – Hunny, Choocha, Lali, and Zafar – with modest ambitions. Nonetheless the screenplay of Fukrey is quite ambitious because each of the four characters is shaped from scratch and there is a lot to cram. You get to know of all their dreams, their backgrounds, [...]
If you’ve ever watched a film first day first show in a suburban multiplex, you will no doubt have been accosted by a TV camera crew at the exit to get a ‘junta reaction’ of the film. Some of us love the attention and the chance to get on TV (spending the whole weekend channel [...]
In the very last shot of Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, the camera simply swishes past Naina (Deepika Padukone), the romantic interest and settles on Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor), the leading man who looks straight into the lens with a knowing half-smile. This last shot leaves some room for interpretation. If this were a romance-drama, wouldn’t the [...]
It’s just too bad that most of Bollywood has still not learnt the difference between a “good looking” film and a “good” film and makers believe that substituting the former for the latter will get the job of keeping audiences happy done. Ishkq in Paris is a case in point. It’s adequately shot (of course, [...]
For some reason, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke left an indelible impression in my memory when it first released. Never mind that it was a rip-off of Hollywood’s House Boat, that Juhi Chawla was particularly unconvincing as a Jayanti Iyer, and that the story was rather run-of-the-mill. Mahesh Bhatt still got a National and Filmfare [...]
Changez, loves America. An Ivy-leaguer, he is a successful financial consultant who has everything going for him in the land of opportunity. Then he witnesses 9/11. And Changez begins to hate America. Not because he interprets the act as some subliminal belief he had within him all along, but rather, for what America does to [...]
It is important to pay attention early on in Aurangzeb as it kicks off with Prithviraj’s voiceover. He introduces his “business” as a top cop and the roll of characters that are to play a part in this complex, intelligent plot that holds the promise of a taut thriller about power and money. At a [...]
Finally. Zombies! It’s about time the general Indian population was alerted about the possibility of a post-apocalyptic world where the dead walk and feast upon the living and bring them into their fold. I should admit that I’m a huge fan of the genre and have watched and read a lot on the subject and [...]
Class 9. You’re fat. You’re insecure. You think you can dance. But you trip and fall. A lot. The mirror is your best friend. Time stands still when you’re in front of it. The reflection is your world. Only when you look away does time fast forward to the present and you feel like a [...]
