HEROINE movie review: Kareena Kapoor makes it bearable!
Kareena is the only saving grace of this cliched and clumsy Madhur Bhandarkar film

Mahi wants commitment but Aryan is not ready. Mahi becomes needier as he refuses to acknowledge their relationship in public. Click here to read more
I M 24 review: Ranvir Shorey makes it a bearable watch
Saurabh Shukla’s latest directorial project starring Rajat Kapoor, Ranvir Shorey and Neha Dhupia lacks the punch that makes a film worth a watch. But it has a few enjoyable performances and some funny scenes that make it easy to suffer
From the poster, promo and title, it’s obvious that Saurabh Shukla’s I M 24 is about a man who is 42 but lies through his white teeth that he is a 24-year-old. Click here to read more
MLA quick movie review: Seedy and sloppy!
Since debutante director Shiv Dubey’s film, MLA, starring Mukesh Tiwari and Omkar Das Manikpuri, recently won a nomination at the New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF), we were expecting it to be a promising film. But going by what our reviewer told us midway through the movie, we don’t think it’s anywhere close to being watchable. Here’s what he had to say: “Shiv Dubey’s MLA is seedy, slow and sloppy. The story is extremely predictable, acting is creepy and dialogues are comical. Manikpuri (of Peepli Live fame) fails to deliver. Mukesh Tiwari is the only saving grace of this C-grade drama that tests your threshold for pain!” Let’s hope that our reviewer manages to stay till the end to give us the complete review of the film.

KAHAANI Movie Review: ‘Baap’ of a thriller
Very occasionally you watch a Bollywood thriller film that manages to outsmart you, engages you, makes you hate the interval point and then packs in a message towards the very end, that too with a sledgehammer thud… Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani is all that and more!
Thanks to the huge success of Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Paan Singh Tomar, some credit is being given not just to the actor of a film, but to its writing, an aspect that is usually ignored. Director Sujoy Ghosh’s latest film Kahaani is a step in the right direction for Bollywood, as far as intelligent writing is concerned, at least. Perhaps Kahaani would have been an also-ran without the acting genius of Vidya Balan, but with her, the film is a delight to watch, because of the surprises it throws at you and by the power-packed performances by its cast in entirety.
