  • 'Dumb and Dumber To' review: Film is overdependent on old gags 3 days ago

    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 laughing intermittently...
  • 'Happy Ending' review: A film that wants to be many things all at once 3 days ago

    Director: Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Ileana, Kalki Koechlin, Ranvir Shorey Happy Ending, directed by Go Goa Gone's Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, is a neatly packaged piece of fluff pretending to be smarter than it actually is.

  • 'Boyhood' review: It's an emotionally affecting film with a big beating heart November 14, 2014

    Cast: Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, Lorelei Linklater, Ethan Hawke Director: Richard Linklater Life, as they say, is in the little details. Scrawling graffiti on the wall, poring over a lingerie catalogue, standing up to the bully in the school bathroom, going camping with dad, drinking beer for the first time. You get...
  • 'Kill Dil' review: It's not an unwatchable film November 14, 2014

    Cast: Govinda, Ranveer Singh, Ali Zafar, Parineeti Chopra Director: Shaad Ali 'Kill Dil', directed by Shaad Ali, starts off promisingly despite its hackneyed plot.

  • 'Nightcrawler' review: The film works best as a slick suspenseful thriller November 7, 2014

    Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Riz Ahmed, Bill Paxton Director: Dan Gilroy There's a creepy, spine-chilling intensity to Jake Gyllenhaal's performance in 'Nightcrawler' that's hard to shake off even hours after you've watched the film. Literally transforming himself physically to look bug-eyed, pale, and wiry thin Gyllenhaal becomes Louis Bloom, an awkward...

  • 'Super Nani' review: Its earnestness will appeal anyone who likes to be spoon-fed moral science lessons October 31, 2014

    Cast: Rekha, Sharman Joshi, Randhir Kapoor Director: Indra Kumar If I had a swig of Scotch for each time someone tells Rekha that she belongs in the kitchen, I'd be very drunk watching Super Nani. Come to think of it, that just might be the ideal condition under which to take in...
  • 'Gone Girl' review: A gripping, handsomely mounted film October 31, 2014

    Director: David Fincher Cast: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris It's hard to think of a director better suited to bring Gillian Flynn's deliciously twisty bestseller to the screen than David Fincher. Having gravitated consistently towards deeply cynical stories, he has explored the more unsettling elements of human nature with a...

  • 'Sonali Cable' review: The film has got its moments, but they're few and far between October 17, 2014

    Cast: Rhea Chakraborty and Ali Fazal Directed by: Charudutt Acharya Leaping across rooftops (think Spider-man, but without the web-slinging abilities) to fix snapped wires and connections, linking the neighborhood through a maze of criss-crossing overhead cables, Sonali Tandel (Rhea Chakraborty), the protagonist of Sonali Cable, is a hard-working, self-made entrepreneur whose local...

  • 'Annabelle' review: A spine-tingling horror movie despite an unconvincing climax October 10, 2014

    Director: John R Leonitti Cast: Ward Horton, Annabelle Wallis, Alfre Woodard The idea of an evil doll as a trigger for a horror story has been adequately exploited in Child's Play and its many Chucky sequels.

    Director: Ravindra Gautam Cast: Anupam Kher, Neha Dhupia Buried beneath the farcical humor, melodramatic performances and manipulative tear-jerking in Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami is a well-intentioned message movie about the value of honesty. The film is positioned as a satire about politics and corruption, and Rahil Qazi's script makes veiled references to...

  • 'Bang Bang' review: The film isn't unwatchable but certainly tests your patience October 2, 2014

    Director: Siddharth Anand Cast: Katrina Kaif, Hrithik Roshan Bang Bang has two gorgeous leads, some eye-popping stunt scenes, a slew of beautiful locales, and pretty hummable music. It would take an especially awful script and a truly incompetent director to deliver an unwatchable film out of those ingredients. Within the first ten minutes...
