Bahut Hua Sammaan movie review
With lockdown still on in certain places like restaurants, malls, multiplexs and specially Cinema Houses, there has been a torrent of releases on the web platform or OTT as it is called, both in form of new web series as well as new movie offerings like Bahut Hua Sammaan. This is now the new norm to keep us all busy during this slowdown period and also keep them entertained. Though some big releases are still being held back for hopefully a full theatrical release later this year. While some of these OTT offerings are run-of-the-mill, some outright boring, some gripping and some entertaining . Latest in this sequence is the film- Bahut Hua Samman on Disney-Hotstar. An innocuous movie you might think, it seems that it was complete with them for some time and then they realised it's time to take it out of the bag. Released on 2nd October Bahut Hua Sammaan is a satire on the current soci ....

Bobby (1973)
Bobby was released on 28 September 1973 and was an instant hit amongst the Young India of the time. Teenage love stories were hitherto unseen on the Indian screens. That too with absolutely fresh faced youngsters actually acting their own age. This movie launched the careers of both Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia in lead roles. Though it was planned with Rajesh Khanna in mind but as Raj Kapoor who was also it's Producer and Director and whose Mere Naam Joker had bombed badly on the silver screen, he is said to have not been able to afford Rajesh thus he launched his own son Rishi instead. Rest is now history. Bobby's fresh faced stars became the USP of this movie. Indian cinema was looking for fresh faces and they got them here.

An indie film produced by Priti Basu and Saptaswa Basu, and directed by Saptaswa Basu, Network has an exciting first half which makes one feel for the protagonist of the film.

Bodyguard - movie review
Bodyguard is a romantic action film, a remake of the 2010 Malayalam film of the same name. Salman Khan has an image of a star carrying a unique attitude and style of doing things, delivering punch lines and an overall aura around him which overshadows all the other characters in the movie.

Bubble Gum - movie review
Bubble Gum is another refreshing blossoming teenage tale. It is set in the backdrop of the 80s in the city of Jamshedpur, India. A young teenager Vedant (Delzad) has a crush on Jenny. His parents do not appreciate this behavior, and this leads to changes in his relation with them. Bubble Gum movie review... It is set in those days when modes of communication were still evolving, maybe the World Wide Web wasn’t even launched in the US, and so the mobiles and the internet weren’t even thought of. There was a time when letters – the snail mail and Airmail letters, telegrams and the old telephone (usually owned by the privileged few) used to be the only means of communication. It was the era of typewriters (a machine to type official letters before computers were introduced). Parents Mukund and Sudha (Sachin Khedekar, Tanvi Azmi) get too engrossed with Vidur and leave a feeling o ....

Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap - movie review
The magic is still there, the appeal is still evident the moment he appears on the screen and his dialogues in that baritone voice. It is Amitabh Bachchan returning as the angry ‘young’ man. But Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap is full of flashy dresses, over the top acting in a film which leans on a thin storyline. Puri Jagannadh, the Telugu film director makes the 69-year-old Amitabh Bachchan enact the role of a defiant, flashy hit man in his angry young man of the 70s and 80 style. Dare not call him a ‘Buddah’, lest you face his anger. Single handedly he handles the baddies, but also has a soft side too. He gets the best lines to deliver which make the audience clap and cheer at several occasions. 'Vijju is a contract killer who returns to Mumbai after being in Paris. It will be his last assignment of his profession. He is flamboyant, arrogant and hits back to those who call h ....

Bhindi Baazaar Inc - movie review
Set in the underbelly of Mumbai, between the infamous by-lanes where ‘Greed is a Culture’ and ‘Deceit becomes a Compulsion’. Bhindi Baazaar Inc movie review... The film revolves around gangs of Mumbai who have embraced pickpocketing as an art and a means of earning a livelihood. They use their intelligence as a canvas and their spontaneity as a brush to survive in this dangerous profession. There are many gangster movies produced in Bollywood. The city’s sleazy underbelly which is in South Mumbai in areas like Mohamed Ali Road, Dongri, Kamathipura and the Bhindi Bazaar area has been depicted in films. Bhindi Baazaar Inc. is the story of a pawn and his calculated moves to reach the other end of the chessboard. Revolving around vicious crime syndicates, the film starts with a game of chess being played between two characters; ‘Shroff’ and ‘Darzi’. It highlights ....
