Republic Day Movie Watching

This Republic Day I was pleasantly surprised to see some sensible movies on TV, rather than the usual jingoistic nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism these days. Instead, there were two thoughtful crit...

Kahaani – A Movie Review

It's rare that I review a Hindi movie on this blog. It's not that I don't see Hindi movies, I do, but so very often I have very little to say. Most of the movies I have seen in the past couple of years have ...
Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan at his Goofiest Best

I rarely post Bollywood stuff on my blog, as most Bollywood-related stuff is all over the mainstream blogs, and it doesn't make any sense to add my commentary to them. But every once in a while, a gem of a v...
Players Movie Poster

A Rockstar and Some Players

Wonder of wonders. I was actually able to watch a couple of movies recently - completely as opposed to tidbits. Unfortunately, both these movies were a bit of a mixed bag and neither fully lived up to either di...
L.A Confidential Movie Poster

Movies I Watched Over the Weekend

I saw L.A Confidential the first time when it released, and I enjoyed it very much, but really all memory for this movie was drowned when I saw Titanic a week or so later. If you asked me anything about this mo...

My Half-baked Thoughts on a Half-baked Movie

It's very rare that a movie gets so bad for me that I end up switching off before the ending. I mean, I have sat through some real clunkers (Dil Bole Hadippa anyone?), but Raavan really takes the cake. In two w...

The A-Team

Watched The A-Team in the cinema yesterday, and totally amazed at the nonsense that is coming out of Hollywood these days. In our desi (Indian) slang, we all unanimously categorized it as "bundle" aka nonsense....

Phir Mile Sur is Really Disappointing!

I spent yesterday chilling in front of the TV catching the new Phir Mile Sur remix of the vibrant 80's national integration song. And I am pretty stunned at how bad it is. The original song was such a beautiful...

The Shah Rukh – Kajol Jodi Back Again!

Was busy doing errands when I saw this in the supermarket window: A jaded looking Shah Rukh Khan and a grim Kajol on the October cover of Vogue India promoting their latest movie - My Name is Khan. ...
Kaminay is One Rocking Movie!

Kaminay is One Rocking Movie!

Finally saw Kaminey (also spelled as Kaminay in some places) last weekend and it completely lived up to my expectations and more! I had heard reviews about it being a dark movie, but what I was not prepared for...

Season of Movies

Finally, after the looong standoff between the Bollywood producers and the multiplex owners, we will all get a chance to see some of the long-pending Hindi movies that got held up this year, and it's not a mome...


Although I had a poor impression of Delhi-6 after seeing all the trailers and interviews that preceded it, when my friends called me up for a movie date, call it peer pressure or whatever, I ended up going for ...

One more moronic MP

When Sanjay Dutt / Maanyata announced their political aspirations, I didn't really give it a second thought. Yet another has-been Bollywood actor trying to build a second career. And as such, I have no issues w...
Atrocious Dress and Styling on Priyanka Walking the Ramp


Have been down with cough n cold n fever this weekend. On such days, when I am feeling so blah, I take a dose of my good ole Benadryl, pop a DVD into the player, n just chill out on the sofa under my comforter....

Singh is Kinng – I object

Been seeing the promos of Singh is Kinng ad nauseum on the telly. The promos look good, and there seems to be a lot of interest in the movie. This statement is made on the basis of an extremely unscientific pol...

Jaane tu…ya jaane na

Went to watch this movie with my friends to my fave theatre - Fame Lido. Favorite because of the following reasons: Closest to my house Parking is only Rs. 20 regardless of the time spent Food court is ...
