The narration in the beginning of JAANE TU… YA JAANE NA, mocks the formulaic aspects of an Indian love story, so it right away sets the tone for the rest of the film. And it actually works.

Thor is about a brash and arrogant God of Thunder who is banished from his world (Asgard) by his Dad for being a dick. No, really…”
KNIGHT AND DAY works as a mindless entertainer that runs in the background during a party that one can tune in and out of.
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS is awesome. I will punch anyone in the face that says otherwise. It is quite possibly the best comic book film ever made.
From David O. Russell, comes an exceptionally made THE FIGHTER featuring Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg. Read on for more…
The last of Shah’s old school reviews: “Out of all the films that I’ve reviewed on this website WATER is one that I would strongly recommend to anyone and everyone…!”
Probably one of the best Indian films depicting a war ridden Kashmir as the backdrop, YAHAAN is also horribly underrated. A must watch for anyone that’s in love with Kashmir. Also: Pardon my naivete in this review when it comes to thoughts on love and all. I was super young when I wrote this.
KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY is an utterly dull movie that continues long after it should’ve been over. A non existant story that drags on to the point of wanting to blind oneself.
Another unnecessarily long winded review from my writing days, years ago. This one is about the Indian Film BLACK. Good luck to anyone who wants to go through it…
Vishal Bhardwaj has done some of the best films to come out of the Indian Film Industry ever. His most recent movie comes as an an exhibition of Priyanka Chopra’s talents in the form of 7 KHOON MAAF (SEVEN MURDERS FORGIVEN).
The Shah gets passionate and bitter simultaneously: “Within this ‘Brady Bunch’ togetherness woven through technology in our society, we somehow seem to be completely and utterly ignorant to crimes happening in nations beyond our reach.”
UNSTOPPABLE was seriously a lackluster movie that had no beginning or end. The lame-ness of the film itself is pretty unstoppable given the plot and character development.
Another oldie. It’s been so long since I saw this movie, I actually almost forgot about this review. But I wrote this as well, like 6 years ago. Thankfully one of my shorter pieces from back then. Still contains a lot of irrelevant background info though. Bah. Old Shah (younger Shah) is so embarrassing.
A story of a linguistically handicapped teenager, IQBAL is about dreams, ambitions and one’s determination to achieve what might be out of reach.
Rang De Basanti was single handedly responsible for pulling Bollywood out of a decades-long slump.
I will watch anything by Pierce Brosnan. That’s a fact. Same goes for Roman Polanski. Together, along with Ewan McGregor they do the eerily suspenseful… THE GHOST WRITER
Considering Salman Khan has been hugely successful recently with DABANNG and is coming out with another (apparently) funny philum, READY… I thought it’d be cool to take a look at an old review of one of his more ‘serious’ films: KYON KI…
PATIALA HOUSE is very unique and original, and is probably the best Indian sports movie that I’ve seen set in contemporary times…
