Piku movie review: Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan’s film is absolutely endearing
Bengalis or West Bengal is not only about rasagolla and mishti doi or Howrah Bridge for that matter. It is also about cycling around on a busy street or having an oil soaked luchi-torkari breakfast
Piku celebrates that reality and also brings forth the community’s genuine nuances. I am in a celebratory mood after watching Piku because Shoojit Sircar not only highlighted their demeanour and strong personality but also their shortcomings. Let me tell you how. Click here to read more

AGENT VINOD movie review: Not all guns blazing!
Agent Vinod could have been the coolest spy thriller to come out of India since it does not have too much competition in that department. But it misses the mark by a good margin. Director Sriram Raghavan loses the plot by trying too hard and packing in as much as he possibly could in one big budget flick
Before you start watching Agent Vinod you have some expectations from it since you know at least three important things: Sriram Raghavan has directed two very underrated and understated but intelligent thrillers – Ek Haseena Thi and Johnny Gaddar , that he has waited five years for Agent Vinod to materialize and it’s Saif Ali Khan’s home production and his most ambitious project.
To start with, the spy thriller has a perfect beginning. The story kicks off in Afghanistan where Agent Vinod (Saif Ali Khan) is being held hostage. The smart and daring character of Vinod is quickly established with his witty repartee and quirky manner of dealing with his enemy, followed by a well-shot action sequence in the desert and the slickly done title credits. Heavily inspired by A-Team! Click here to read more
SPEEDY SINGHS REVIEW: A cliche-loaded NRI tale
But debutant Vinay Virmani has a natural charm and an easygoing bonhomie to his personality that goes a long way in furnishing speed to Speedy Singhs
Regrettably there are too many potholes and roadblocks in the narration leading to a kind of plot that doffs its heart at all the films on the spirit of sportsmanship and the parental opposition that it faces. Click here to read more
