The story by Akshat Ghildiyal, set in middle class Delhi’s Central Government quarters remains centre-stage while Priyamvada’s doting husband (Gajraj Rao); a cantankerous mother-in-law (Surekha Sikri); an incredulous son Nakul (Ayushmann Khuranna) and a younger son stu...

Yashraj Films gets 50 per cent marks – for trying. Actually, that’s unfair. The same marks should be divided between performances, concept and hard work. I am keeping back the balance 50 per cent and you will soon know why! Weaving dreams is great, being ambitious is f...

Saadat Hasan Manto was a writer far ahead of his times – at least 75 years ahead. But this measure is rather literal and I am saying this because the last seven decades are available to me in retrospection. For those who will remain sensitive to their times and the all...

The well-known actor Victor Banerjee’s latest outing ‘The Answer’ gives plenty of food for thought – especially since he essays the role of Paramhansa Yogananda - one of the world’s most well-known spiritual gurus of this century.

Here is a genuinely funny film. The wise cracks are novel, treatment different and the genre ‘horror comedy’ (as its maker likes to define it) definitely a new one. The humour is not forced and just about everything works for Amar Kaushik’s labour of love, Stree.

For a film which had the potential and possibly the vision of examining the very sensitive issue of ‘us’ and ‘them’ (read Hindus and Muslims) in a balanced manner, Anubhav Sinha’s Mulk tries but feebly. It does, however, make a very powerful case for those who want to...

Dhulia, Gill and Sheirgill are back. ‘Thanks Gods’? Well, depends on how much you love the franchise. Sheirgill as Saheb a.k.a Vijay Pratap Singh charms once again and Gill (read Mahie) as Biwi/Madhavi thickens the plot by plotting again. She is wiser, smarter and Oh-s...

Set in Udaipur, Dhadak tries to capture the local flavors in its use of the local dialect, Mewari. But it doesn’t capture caste divisions in society or mention honour as a byword. And because the undercurrents are missing, Dhadak ends up being a story about boy meeting...

Let’s talk about the problematic part first. One of the places where Shaad Ali fails to deliver in Soorma is when Sandeep Singh - portrayed exceptionally by Diljit Dosanjh - is in coma post a bullet that hit his spinal cord and grazed other vital organs.
