WALL STREET – THE WORLD IS A DIFFERENT PLACE NOW

Oliver Stone and Michael Douglas return with Wall Street – Money Never Sleeps, the first sequel Oliver Stone has ever made. In true Oliver Stone style, his films are based on real characters and events and like it or not, are always thought provoking. Wall Street of 1987 is very different from Wall Street of 2010. In fact if anything it documents what many truly believe. Generation Now is better...

For Real-Review

She glides through a field of yellow flowers. Her green saree ablaze with love, the field ablaze with light. Her long hair her totem and her touch her haven of comfort. This is the image that little Shruti holds close to her heart. The vision of her mother in her green saree and long lustrous hair in a beautiful field of yellow flowers holding her close to her chest. This is not the reality she is...

Dabangg – Review

The phenomenon of commercial cinema is undergoing an interesting coming-of-age. It is in its second life-cycle. After dying a gory death in the 80’s the phoenix that rose was ashen in the 90’s and the gawky kid became a self-conscious teenager in the new millennium. And this teenager is yet to find its feet. Dabangg is an interesting illustration of this dubitable ‘growing up’ that is happening...

Raajneeti – Been There Seen That

If you’ve seen Godfather and Kalyug and read the Mahabharat or seen the original one as a serial, you have pretty much covered Rajneeti in sum total. Interesting in parts, predictable in most, pacy in parts, tedious in most, with hackneyed dialogues and characterization.  The positive is clearly fine acting. Arjun Ramphal enact his parts well. The direction is crisp, the story per se is weak. It...

KITES – PARTLY VERY ENTERTAINING PARTLY VERY UNFULFILLING

The hype of Kites, gets to it. What we are promised, by the Bollywood machinery, we don’t get. This one plays out like a Mahesh Bhatt film, set on the scale of a Rakesh Roshan production.  There seems to be some confusion as Bollywood tries hard, a bit too much, to reach out to Hollywood, and gets somewhat jarred in between. Firstly the strengths and there are many. The direction is of top notch...

PRINCE – SCRIPTLESS AND ENTERTAINING VIDEO GAME

Prince represents a cut and paste of most of the action packed films of Tom Cruise and Mat Damon. The makers seem to run it like a video game. Plenty of action, some fine sequences which are lifted straight from Hollywood and no story or at the very least, a lame one of the hero trying to find who he really is and the audience trying to find, what the film is really all about. It is best seen and...

TEEN PATTI – WASTED TALENT

Watching Teen Patti is like going to the restaurant with the best reputation and being served food with the finest ingredients, that has been very badly cooked, because the cook does not know what to do with the raw materials and the resources at her disposal. Take Ben Kingsley, Amitabh, along with fine individual performances by Madhavan, Shraddha Kapoor, Dhruv Ganesh and Siddharth Kher and you have...

RANN- PREDICTIBLE YET ENGAGING

Rann goes into a different and interesting subject matter territory…that of the Media, both it’s explosive influence on the Indian way of life, it’s pressures and also the it’s evolution from the medium of information and preservation of a democracy, to becoming a full fledged business operation. By it’s very subject matter, by the wonderful performances by Rajat Kapoor, Suchitra Krishnamurty...
