DABANGG is a family entertainer with awesome action and decent comedy, but most importantly… Salman sporting a simple ‘stache!

Movember’s Moustache Movie Madness – ROWDY RATHORE – 2012 (Bollywood)

ROWDY RATHORE is a masterful tribute / parody to 90’s Bollywood movies; complete with the exaggerated action, cheesy dialogues, worse dancing and simplistic storytelling!

Movie Review: DON 2 (2012) – Failed Sequel Of Remake Of Original Movie

Movie Review: DON 2 (2012) – Failed Sequel Of Remake Of Original Movie

DON 2 is the original sequel to the 2006 remake of the 1978 film of the same name. But it seems like without an original to follow, the sequel’s plot falls flat on its face.

Movie Review: A WEDNESDAY (2008)

Movie Review: A WEDNESDAY (2008)

A WEDNESDAY is a small, but brilliant movie with a new twist on the typical ‘Urban Terrorist’ story. A must watch, if no other reason but to see Naseeruddin Shah & Anupam Kher together!

Movie Review: KHUDA KAY LIYE (IN THE NAME OF GOD) (2007)

KHUDA KAY LIYE is the best film I’ve seen that has been able to handle the portrayals of Muslims in America, and terrorism in general, without any one sided bias or generic retarded-ness.

Movie Review: BBUDDAH HOGA TERRA BAAP (2011)

Movie Review: BBUDDAH HOGA TERRA BAAP (2011)

BBUDDAH HOGA TERRA BAAP almost mocks the fact that an old Amitabh Bachchan is the hero of an action flick… but they do so with pride and balls, no apologies.

Movie Review: AARAKSHAN (2011)

Movie Review: AARAKSHAN (2011)

AARAKSHAN is a good movie, with powerful performances, great scenes… but loses its impact as it drags on beyond the cohesive story. The topic of ‘Reservation’ is also so technical and specific that it seems like it wouldn’t hold the attentions of a general audience.
