  • 'Action Jackson' review: The film is an orgy of bloody fight scenes 05-12-2014 08:33 PM

    Director: Prabhudheva Cast: Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam It takes a special kind of talent to make a film as awful as Action Jackson, so it should come as no surprise that it's been directed by Prabhudheva, the man who inflicted on us all kinds of pain that we...

    Director: Eric Darnell, Simon J Smith Cast: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Christopher Knights Despite their sidekick status in the three Madagascar movies the quartet of wisecracking penguins became such stars by virtue of their comic antics, it was only a matter of time before some smart-alec studio executive came up...

    Director: Francis Lawrence Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth Not very much happens in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1.

  • 'Ungli' review: The movie moves along predictably with a lazy screenplay 28-11-2014 08:35 PM

    Director: Renzil D'Silva Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Kangana Ranaut, Sanjay Dutt There's some good old fashioned earnestness at the core of writer-director Rensil D'silva's Ungli, but the film is so steeped in naivet and trades in such simplistic solutions, it's as if you're listening to a Class V moral science lesson....

    Director: Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly Cast: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels As many as six writers are credited with putting Dumb and Dumber To on the screen, and still there's no mistaking that stench of desperation and creative exhaustion that the film so badly reeks of. Sure I found myself...
