  • 'Khoobsurat' review: For those seeking comfort in the familiar, it's a pretty satisfying watch 6 hours 43 minutes ago

    Cast: Sonam Kapoor, Fawad Khan and Ratna Pathak Director: Shashanka Ghosh The Disney logo at the start of Khoobsurat is a telling sign of what to expect from the film.

  • 'Mardaani' review: Reasonably short and minus songs, the film is consistently watchable August 23, 2014

    Cast: Rani Mukherjee, Jisshu Sengupta Director: Pradeep Sarkar As movie cops go, Mardaani's Shivani Shivaji Roy, played by Rani Mukerji, feels closer in spirit to Aamir Khan's straight-talking Ajay Rathod from Sarfarosh over larger-than-life supermen Chulbul Pandey or Bajirao Singham.
