Movie Review: JAANE TU… YA JAANE NA (2008)

Movie Review: JAANE TU… YA JAANE NA (2008)

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.

Movie Review: THOR (2011) – The Weak Link Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe

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…”

Movie Review: KNIGHT AND DAY (2010) – Tom Cruise Parodies Himself

Movie Review: KNIGHT AND DAY (2010) – Tom Cruise Parodies Himself

KNIGHT AND DAY works as a mindless entertainer that runs in the background during a party that one can tune in and out of.

Movie Review: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS (2011) – Reboot Done Right!

Movie Review: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS (2011) – Reboot Done Right!

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.

Movie Review: THE FIGHTER (2010)

Movie Review: THE FIGHTER (2010)

From David O. Russell, comes an exceptionally made THE FIGHTER featuring Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg. Read on for more…

Movie Review: WATER (2005)

Movie Review: WATER (2005)

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…!”

Movie Review: …YAHAAN (2006)

Movie Review: …YAHAAN (2006)

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.

Movie Review: KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY (2010)

Movie Review: KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY (2010)

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.

Movie Review: BLACK (2005)

Movie Review: BLACK (2005)

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…

Movie Review: 7 KHOON MAAF (2011)

Movie Review: 7 KHOON MAAF (2011)

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).

Movie Review: HOTEL RWANDA (2004) – A Tragic Episode In Human History

Movie Review: HOTEL RWANDA (2004) – A Tragic Episode In Human History

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.”

Movie Review: UNSTOPPABLE (2010)

Movie Review: UNSTOPPABLE (2010)

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.

Movie Review: SEHAR (2005)

Movie Review: SEHAR (2005)

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.

Movie Review: IQBAL (2006)

Movie Review: IQBAL (2006)

A story of a linguistically handicapped teenager, IQBAL is about dreams, ambitions and one’s determination to achieve what might be out of reach.

Movie Review: RANG DE BASANTI (2006)

Movie Review: RANG DE BASANTI (2006)

Rang De Basanti was single handedly responsible for pulling Bollywood out of a decades-long slump.

Movie Review: THE GHOST WRITER (2010)

Movie Review: THE GHOST WRITER (2010)

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

Movie Review: KYON KI… (2005)

Movie Review: KYON KI… (2005)

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…

Movie Review: PATIALA HOUSE (2011)

Movie Review: PATIALA HOUSE (2011)

PATIALA HOUSE is very unique and original, and is probably the best Indian sports movie that I’ve seen set in contemporary times…

Movie Review: RAJNEETI (2010)

Movie Review: RAJNEETI (2010)

Rajneeti is a political thriller from Bollywood that falls a little flat, but still enjoyable.

Movie Review: RUNNING SCARED (2006)

Movie Review: RUNNING SCARED (2006)

This is a ‘review’ I wrote years ago on RUNNING SCARED… and it seems I was easily impressed in those days… such is youth.
