Age is only a state of mind” – this statement that I heard in the film, immediately made my mind wander and think about all possible quotes and phrases on ‘age’ to analyse this film. Click here to read more
Lekar Hum Deewana Dil movie review: Armaan Jain and Deeksha Seth’s love story is clichéd yet lovable!
Imtiaz Ali’s brother, proves his mettle with his first film
The concept of boy and girl eloping and then getting married has been seen in many movies like Bobby, Love Story, Betaab, etc. But Imtiaz Ali gave everyone a different eloping romantic theory when he gave us films like Socha Na Tha and Jab We Met. His brother Arif Ali takes cues from both the genres and tries to develop a mid way.
Arif adds the flavours of harsh realities in Armaan Jain and Deeksha Seth‘s elope, get-married and happily-ever-after theory. Click here to read more

War Chhod Na Yaar movie review: An engaging war satire!
Cast: Sharman Joshi, Soha Ali Khan and Jaaved Jaffrey
Writer-Director: Faraz Haider
Political satires are easily the most difficult genre of comedy in cinema. They have to serve up a telling lesson to self-serving politicians while providing audiences with a good laugh. We had Kunal Roy Kapur attempting one of ‘dose’ in The President Is Coming. But that’s it. Full credit to writer-director Faraz Haider for going into the war zone and emerging from the battle-scarred scenario with his sense of humour intact. Click here to read more
KAI PO CHE movie review: The film flies higher than a kite!Raj Kumar Yadav is the highlight of the film, while Sushant Singh Rajput proves there’s more to him than mere brawn!
It’s great to see three friends getting along with each other like a house on fire, despite being so radically different. Sushant Singh Rajput (Ishan Bhatt) is the fiery one, with an illuminating ember in his belly, but impulsive and passionate to the extent that he tends to overlook the rational side of any situation.

1920 Evil Returns movie review: What’s the point?
You might want to stand there with a dagger in one hand and ask, “Why did you do that, Mr Vikram Bhatt?” after you watch this sequel
1920: Evil Returns is the story of Jaidev Verma (Aftab Shivdasani), Smruti (Tia Bajpai), Karuna (Vidya Malvade) and an evil spirit. And a castle, a picturesque location and hummable songs are all in place. Yet, this movie tells you how – even with all these aspects intact – a story can still go nowhere. Click here to read more
WILL YOU MARRY ME? movie review: Funny and refreshing
Will you marry me? is a breezy watch with an overdose of strictly average songs. Yet, a movie worth watching for Shreyas Talpade and Paresh Rawal
B-town is buzzing with romcoms. And in times when every other movie borders this funny genre, listening to never-heard-before jokes is refreshing. Will you marry me? is peppered with fresh and funny one-liners and jokes and manages to hold your attention till the end.
The movie begins with three friends – Rajveer (Rajeev Khandelwal), Aarav (Shreyas Talpade) and Nikhil (Muzammil Ibrahim) – scrunching up their noses at the thought of marriage. So much so that they end up betting huge amounts of shares on their bachelorhood. But, as it happens in any other movie, destiny steps in. Click here to read more
BITTOO BOSS movie review: Nothing new!
Is it a love story, a movie with a social message or a fun-filled saga on camera angles? Well, none of those. Yet it gives the impression of being all that and more. But don’t let those confusing scenes fool you, dear readers. In the end it’s just the story of a guy called Bittoo Boss
Bittoo (Pulkit Samrat) is a ‘video shooter’ who is passionate about capturing the right ‘motion’ in all his photos. The movie begins with a shaadi and people running around in colorful clothes. Our camera man – not the groom – is the star of such events. You get the impression that people in the town carry out rituals and parties only to look good on video. And Bittoo makes sure that it happens. But this video shooter wants to make it big in life. Click here to read more
DEPARTMENT quick movie review: Sheer torture!
Ram Gopal Varma does it again. He creates yet another poor remake, and this time he lifts the plot from his own film
We heard about RGV trying to create something new with his new style called ‘rogue filming‘. But a quick review from our critic confirms our worst fears. 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.

SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER Quick Movie Review: Witty and steamy!
The film belongs to Randeep Hooda, who plays the gangster, in this fast-paced thrilling movie
Director Tigmanshu Dhulia attempts to make a contemporary version of Guru Dutt’s classic Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam with this one. Seeped in north Indian culture, it’s the story of a broke king and his frustrated queen. So far, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster been talked about more for its sex quotient than for its story.
