Movie Review: Kedarnath

In Abhishek Kapoor’s “Kedarnath”, the forces of nature collide with the force of young love, and you get a tale that seeks to marry themes of faith, religion, intolerance and the destruction of the environment.

It’s the script, stupid: Junglee Pictures looks beyond stars to churn out hits

Reuters - As Bollywood makes its year-end report card, one film that will emerge as the standout hit of 2018 is “Badhaai Ho” (Congratulations). The comedy-drama has made 1. 35 billion rupees ($19 million) at the box office even as big-ticket releases like “Thugs of Hindostan” and “Namaste England” fell by the wayside.

Movie Review: 2.0

Director Shankar should be applauded for the idea behind "2.0". The idea of the most ubiquitous thing in our lives - the cellphone - turning on humanity and causing destruction makes for great entertainment and is instantly relatable to an audience that presumably cannot resist glancing at their mobile devices during the film's screening.

Movie Review: Pihu

For anyone who’s grown up watching the “Home Alone” series, a movie about a child being left alone at home would bring back memories of funny moments, emotional scenes and a happy ending.

Movie Review: Mohalla Assi

In “Mohalla Assi”, a group of men sits around a decrepit tea shop and argue endlessly. They ramble on about secularism, politics, leftist ideology - and everything else under the sun. This forms an important motif in the film. But much like these men, Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s political satire never quite gets to the point.

Movie Review: Thugs of Hindostan

Vijay Krishna Acharya's new fantasy adventure film was supposed to be a traditional Diwali money-spinner, and Bollywood’s answer to “Baahubali” and Hollywood franchise blockbusters like “Pirates of the Caribbean”. In short, it was supposed to be a spectacle.

Movie Review: Baazaar

For a film about money and its trappings, Gauravv K. Chawla’s “Baazaar” doesn’t seem too keen on learning the lessons it imparts to the audience. In the first 10 minutes, there is a not-so-subtle ad for a digital wallet company, and the rest of the film is also an exercise in how not to be subtle about your message.
