Force - movie review
Very rarely the viewer is treated with good action in a bollywood film. Force is such a film which has logical action and each of the stunts can be reasoned out. Unlike other bollywood flicks where the hero jumps in the air, travels a long distance and then kicks multiple bad guys and then he safely lands on both his feet. Thankfully, this film is devoid of such action. Force movie review... A stylized thriller among the new wave of Indian films paying homage to the seminal Indian action genre, ‘FORCE’ combines state-of-the-art fight sequences and thrills with an original romantic narrative, delivering an abundance of on-screen energy and vigor that will have audiences gripped from the opening sequence to the end credits. Directed by the critically acclaimed, Filmfare and National Award winning Nishikant Kamat ‘FORCE’ is a contemporary action romance and a Hindi reinterpret ....

FALTU - movie review
F.A.L.T.U. - movie review A question to begin with. Consider life as a building where you have been stranded on the ground floor while all the lift doors leading to the floors of success have been shut on your face, what would you do? Well, our Faltus would create such a basement that the floors above look cheerless and dreary. Faltu is a story of coming of age of today’s youth. They don’t choose a different path but create one. Inspired by Mr. Nek Chand the creator of the famous Rock Garden in Chandigarh the film exhibits how the discarded waste of the society when channelized smartly can create a Rock Garden and become the pride of the nation. Faltu is a story about a group of friends that are considered a total waste. The cherry on the cake being that they take pride in the fact. These hard-working back-benchers are hardly seen working. They crowd up the clubs of the town ....

Fruit and Nut, movie review
Fruit & Nut is a spoof on India's amusing socio-political state. Therefore a film of this genre should not be taken seriously as it has plenty of slapstick Govinda-David Dhawan type silly scenes. Fruit and nut movie review... Directed by Kunal Vijaykar, Fruit and Nut is one of those films that succeed in making you giggle intermittently as it is a senseless comedy with not too amusing absurdities here and there. The story of Fruit and Nut is about Jolly Maker (Cyrus Broacha), a simple, hard working middle class bachelor in search of love, money, friends and fame. He works as an accounts clerk in a greedy and corrupt builder named Khandar’s (Mahesh Manjrekar) office. This nerd Jolly Maker is an accident-prone character who leaves a trail of disaster behind him. One day in broad daylight, Jolly Maker's beautiful, sexy, smart and snobbish colleague, Monica (Dia Mirza), gets m ....

Firaaq, movie review
Most films about riots are full of violence that they set out to critique. Actress Nandita Das has her debut in direction with Firaaq, which explores the fierce and delicate emotions of fear, anxiety, prejudice and ambivalence in human relationships during the riots. Firaaq is an Urdu word that means both separation and quest. The film is a work of fiction, based on a thousand stories.The story is set over a 24-hour period, one month after a carnage that took place in Gujarat, India, in 2002. It traces the emotional journeys of ordinary people - some who were victims, some perpetrators and some who chose to watch silently. As an ensemble film, it follows multiple narratives that are at times interconnected and at times discreet, yet all are united by their spatial and emotional context. A middle-class housewife Aarti (Deepti Naval) closes the door on a woman desperately seeking ref ....

The existence of the ‘other world’ has been a subject of debate between the skeptics and the believers. The Final EXIT directed by Dhwanil Mehta explores this particular aspect and appears convincing to a great extent. It is generally believed that the 'other dimension' or 'other world' always exists in our life. Made by a debutant director this film depicts layers of emotions of the characters. The audience will actually sense it throughout the film. This makes the viewer actually feel involved with the characters. The subject of other dimension has been taken in several Hollywood films but it is for the first time that a Bollywood film delves into this complex issue. Almost every body, knowingly or unkno ....
