Dharam Sankat Mein movie review: Paresh Rawal, Annu Kapoor and Naseeruddin Shah FAIL to tickle your funny bone!
Religious satires do well with Bollywood audiences, but was this film worth the effort? Check out the full movie review and you would know…

And the faith got even higher when you saw three stellar actors like Paresh Rawal, Naseeruddin Shah and Annu Kapoor in the film. But was the movie able to live up to all of that?

Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain movie review: Ravi Kumar’s melodrama has many highs and lows with a touchy plot
The film based on one of the worst industrial disaster in the history of civilization, should not be missed
They say all you get from love is a love song. Disasters, man-made or otherwise, too can face a similar destiny. All we really get from disasters are disaster movies. Some that shake and stir. Others that move and change lives. Ravi Kumar’s melodramatic recreation of the Bhopal gas tragedy, said to be the worst industrial disaster in the history of civilization, has an instant and lasting chemical reaction. While familiarizing new generations with the enormity of the calamity which claimed and maimed thousands of lives during one December night in 1984, the short and slick film also puts forward the theory of arrogant hegemony practiced by US on poor countries.Click here to read more

Aatma movie review: Over the top in bits, slick in parts!
Suparn Verma could have done a better job with this unique concept that had the potential for novel ideas, but somewhere down the line, he fails to create the magic
Aatma – starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui (Abhay) and Bipasha Basu (Maya) – is not as bad as Vikram Bhatt or Ram Gopal Varma’s masterpieces, but it’s not as slick as Oren Peli’s (of Paranormal Activity fame) interpretation either. Bipasha Basu’s howling is the only thing that tears the curtains of our ear drums and Nawaz’s character warns us of the many dangers of having an evil husband. Click here to read more

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

SAHI DHANDHE GALAT BANDE review: Sahi hai, boss!
Parvin Dabas goes the sahi way with his new film. And, in spite of a glitch here and there, it works!
The movie unspools with a brief note on what the Land Acquisition Act is all about. Trying to comprehend the complexity of the issue from a layman’s point of view, it gets much simpler to grasp as the movie gradually moves on and presents a bigger picture in a lighthearted way. Parvin Dabas (Rajbir) yawns his way out after spending a year in prison. The handsome hunk heads a team of goons who Click here to read more
SHANGHAI movie review: An enthralling and important film
Dibakar Banerjee’s political thriller not only shocks, engages and enthrals, but also packs in some subtle messages about the state of the nation
First things first, the real hero of Shanghai is neither Abhay Deol nor Emraan Hashmi, it is Dibakar Banerjee and his co-writer Urmi Juvekar. Shanghai is in the same league as the recently released Sujoy Ghosh movie, Kahaani, though both films have different backdrops. Click here to read more

THE DIRTY PICTURE movie review: A sexy sizzler with substance
Milan Luthria’s The Dirty Picture works for three reasons: Vidya Balan’s courageous performance, fiery dialogues and a story with heft. But a word of caution: leave behind your prudishness and carry your soul on your sleeve to enjoy the essence of a screen siren’s tragic tale
When you look at the promos of The Dirty Picture you wonder if sex and sleaze is all there is to the biopic loosely based on the story of one of the reigning dancing sensations of the South film industry – Silk Smitha. In the 1980s, she became a quintessential part of southern films because she guaranteed profits with her raunchy and uninhibited performances.
This one is the fairly clichéd story of the rise, reign and fall of a movie star. In The Dirty Picture she’s a dancing queen born Reshma-rechristened-‘Silk’. The film begins with a scene of a young teenager, Reshma, being chided by her mother for flouting her diktats. Next scene, a slightly older Reshma jumps out of the window of her house to escape her own wedding. Cut to a few years later – Reshma (Vidya Balan) is faking the sounds of an orgasm to prevent a couple in the next house from making out, just so she can sleep peacefully. Right then you know that this girl is willing to go to any lengths to get what she wants. And Reshma wants to shine bright in the arc lights. Click here to read more
