MANMARZIYAAN

This film is a love story set in Amritsar that is directed by Anurag Kashyap and produced by Anand L Rai. Thus it has everything that they both represent in terms of their art such as: Set in a Small Town Believable Characters Characters that mouth everyday lingo and not dialogues (luckily no gaalis) Music … More MANMARZIYAAN

STREE

I remember seeing the first look of this movie ages back in which Rajkumar Rao is seen wearing a wedding turban and I thought this movie is going to be similar to the films being based in small town India. Well I was right about that one but the movie was nothing like what I … More STREE

DHADAK

This movie had everything going from it from its inception namely: It was the launch vehicle of new kids on the block i.e. Late Sridevi & Boney Kapoor’s daughter – Jhanvi and the Stepbrother of Shahid Kapoor – Ishaan Khatar. It was produced by one of my favourite Production Houses i.e. Karan Johar’s Dharma Production. … More DHADAK

SANJU

It took me full one week to finally watch the blockbuster Sanju: The biopic of BABA i.e. Sanjay Dutt. The reason for the delay is partly the unavailability of time and mostly because the tickets weren’t just available for the shows I wanted to go for. As you all are aware that this movie has … More SANJU

So we enter the theatre which … More Veere Di Wedding

RAID

With kids away for a night-out, me and my wife made a plan late in the afternoon to go watch the Ajay Devgan starer RAID.  Around 5 pm when I booked the seats the hall was nearly empty with hardly 10-15 seats booked by then. We were so looking forward for a quite movie night. … More RAID

KAALAKAANDI

Kaalakandi is sure an absurd name for a Hinglish Film starring a mainstream Bollywood actor and then I looked up on the net and and it is a Marathi word meaning – Mayhem. The movie is set thru one rainy night in Aamchi Mumbai where three different plots happening simultaneously cross each other. The first … More KAALAKAANDI

Judwaa 2

20 years back I remember seeing Judwaa in Mumbai where I was then pursuing my Undergraduate Degree and if my memory doesn’t fail me it was the Metro Cinema. Those were the days when David Dhawan was at his peak churning our logic defying, crass yet comedy entertainers with his favourite Govinda. Salman Khan too … More Judwaa 2
