'PK' review: The film is packed with sharp dialogue and genuinely funny moments


'PK' review: The film is packed with sharp dialogue and genuinely funny moments

Two films may be too few to base a theory on, but it does appear that in Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani, Bollywood has found an actor/director pair committed to telling brave, relevant stories, the sort rarely tackled in mainstream popular cinema. After delivering a well-aimed kick in the pants to our myopic, rote-learning education system in 2009's colossally successful 3 Idiots, the team returns with PK, a film with very big...ahem...testicles. Operating in a country famously over-sensitive about religion, they've made a movie that brazenly ridicules our blind faith in god, and exposes the manipulations of godmen who feed off it for profit.

'The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies' review: The film has awe, spectacle and some nice light-hearted moments

It's hard not to be overcome with nostalgia while watching The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the last chapter in Peter Jackson's trilogy of The Lord of the Rings prequels, and the presumed end to his massively successful journey through Middle Earth that began 13 years ago. Much like 2003's The Return of the King, this is an out-and-out war film with thrilling battle sequences and elaborate set pieces. We're introduced to a smorgasbord of new creatures that engage in deadly combat, but we're also visited by beloved characters that stop by so Jackson can tie up this story to the ensuing LOTR films.

'Dumb and Dumber To' review: Film is overdependent on old gags

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 while watching this sequel to Peter and Bobby Farrelly's much loved 1994 hit Dumb and Dumber. But that's mostly out of a sense of loyalty and respect for Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels who sportingly embrace the film's ultra-lowbrow humor and throw themselves into whatever ridiculous, disgusting scenario the Farrellys have plotted for them.

'Happy Ending' review: A film that wants to be many things all at once

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. This is cotton candy trying to pass off as caviar. A predictable romantic comedy disguised as a cheeky comment on the predictable nature of romantic comedies. Get it?

'Garm Hava' review: It's a slice of our history that we can't ignore

MS Sathyu's 'Garm Hava' remains a potent and evocative study of the ramifications of Partition on the lives of ordinary, innocent people. Relevant even today, 41 years after it first released in 1973, the film, now digitally restored, has been re-released theatrically this weekend at cinemas across the country.

'Boyhood' review: It's an emotionally affecting film with a big beating heart

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 the drift. 'Boyhood', directed by Richard Linklater, is all about the drift. This is a unique, terrific, intuitive movie about growing up; a coming-of-age film with a relaxed naturalism that you've literally never seen before.

'Kill Dil' review: It's not an unwatchable film

'Kill Dil', directed by Shaad Ali, starts off promisingly despite its hackneyed plot. The film stars Ranveer Singh as Dev, and Ali Zafar as Tutu; they're a pair of hardened shooters who work for Bhaiyaji, a grizzled don played by Govinda. These trigger-happy killers banter relentlessly, even while pumping bullets into a terrified target, and it's their hilarious, irreverent, and often crude one-liners that are the best thing about this film.

'Nightcrawler' review: The film works best as a slick suspenseful thriller

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 but ambitious drifter with no moral compass to speak of.

'Big Hero 6' review: You'll be chuckling throughout, and 95 minutes will fly by

'Interstellar' review: A film that demands not just to be seen, but experienced

There is something to admire in virtually every frame of Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar'. This is a film of soaring ambition, intimate and epic in equal measure; a bold cosmic adventure with plenty wide-eye moments. But it's also overlong, and densely plotted with concepts of space, time and gravity that are occasionally incomprehensible or make little sense.

'The Shaukeens' review: A film not worth the price of a ticket

'The Shaukeens', directed by Tere Bin Laden's Abhishek Sharma and written by Tigmanshu Dhulia, is really two films for the price of one. But sadly neither is worth the price of a ticket.
