    Cast: Arjun Kapoor, Alia Bhatt Director: Abhishek Varman Madrasis are dark, Punjabis are cash-obsessed, and never the twain shall meet. Those familiar prejudices make for a legitimate movie pitch, but '2 States', directed by first-timer Abhishek Varman, is a frustrating case of a promising premise that doesn't fully fructify into...

  • 'Rio 2' review: The film is predictable yet undeniably entertaining 11-04-2014 10:34 PM

    Director: Carlos Saldanha "Rio 2" has neither the wit of "The Lego Movie", nor the classic appeal of "Frozen", yet it's a perfectly enjoyable sequel, bright and beautiful to look at, and set to a clutch of terrific tunes. Like its 2011 predecessor, it's a charming and cheerful film that...
