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)

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

Movie Review: DHOBI GHAT (MUMBAI DIARIES) (2011)

Movie Review: DHOBI GHAT (MUMBAI DIARIES) (2011)

Once on a while comes a film that tends to break free of patterns established in conventional storytelling prior to it. Such a film comes in the form of Aamir Khan produced and Kiran Rao (his wife) directed DHOBI GHAT.

Movie Review: SARKAR (2005) – Remake Of Hollywood’s GODFATHER

Movie Review: ANJAANA ANJAANI (2010)

Movie Review: ANJAANA ANJAANI (2010)

Despite its commercial look and feel, I honestly thought within the first 10 minutes of ANJAANA ANJAANI, that it too would be a morbidly funny movie. I was ever so wrong.

Movie Review: DUS (2005) – Action Masala At It Finest

Movie Review: DUS (2005) – Action Masala At It Finest

With the latest Shah Rukh Khan starrer, RA. ONE coming soon, I think it’d be cool to check out a film from the same director, 6 years ago. So I present yet again, another action movie from days gone by… DUS.

Movie Review: ROBIN HOOD (2010) – Origin Story With Middle Aged CharactersMovie Review: ROBIN HOOD (2010) – Origin Story With Middle Aged Characters

Sadly, ROBIN HOOD was nowhere near that, it was barely ‘good’. Check out my Review of the origin story with old people.

Movie Review: APAHARAN (2005)

Movie Review: APAHARAN (2005)

I’m back with another blast from the past. (I wonder how many cliche’d phrases I can keep using to describe my old articles… hmm.) Wrote this one in 2005… the year my writing really flourished, and also happened to be the year right before the Indian Film Industry was pulled out of its slump in 2006… coincidence??

Movie Review: NO ONE KILLED JESSICA (2011) – A Gritty Bollywood True Crime Story

Movie Review: NO ONE KILLED JESSICA (2011) – A Gritty Bollywood True Crime Story

NO ONE KILLED JESSICA is the story of how a girl was killed over a drink. Yes, she refused a drink to a drunken entitled club rat after hours, and was shot for it. What’s even more shocking: the film is based on the real life murder of Jessica Lall in 1999.

Movie Review: ACTION REPLAYY (2010) – A God Awful Remake of ‘Back To The Future’

Movie Review: ACTION REPLAYY (2010) – A God Awful Remake of ‘Back To The Future’

ACTION REPLAYY is more or less an Indianized version of the first BACK TO THE FUTURE movie, with some added masala, that still leaves a bad taste.

Movie Review: Salt (2010)

Movie Review: Salt (2010)

Salt is an action movie by Angelina Jolie that is engaging and interesting as hell to watch, without thinking about it too much.

‘Bluffmaster’ is a pretty decent con movie coming from Bollywood that in inspired by many others form Hollywood
