Humshakals Film review
3 heroes in triple roles, with a promise of 9 times more fun (3 x 3), Humshakals the latest offering from director Sajid Khan, makes us re-think about Himmatwala (his last outing), though a remake, atleast had some substance and soul in that film. What could have been an iconic film, the attempt fails miserably right after 15 minutes in the film. Sajid Khan has a fetish for UK locations, throwing punches at the royal family, and this one ends up as a pitiable extension of Houseful 1 and 2 which were far better comedies from the director. The story is very short and simple (in fact there is no story, plot or screenplay at all). A conniving uncle of a young tycoon Ashok is keen on grabbing the riches and properties of this innocent nephew. Ram Kapoor is the uncle aka KANS and his nephew is Ashok (Saif Ali Khan). Ashok is seen all throught with Kumar (Riteish Deshmukh), his friend ....

Holiday - Hindi Movie Review

Sleeper Cell?

Holiday begins with a weak introduction where a family is waiting at the station for the hero to return home from his posting at the front. A train load of soldiers arrives and out hops Captain Virat Bakshi (Akshay Kumar), an army man who is back home to Mumbai for his holidays. It seems that the director A. R. Murugadoss, had a drought of ideas as this itself was presented on the pretext of lack of auspicious occasion and so was the introduction of the heroine Sahiba (Sonakshi Sinha). Immediately, on his arrival, his family takes him to see a bride, but he instantly feels the girl is too soft and an introvert. He is wrong, as sometime later, he finds out that she is actually a boxer and he is impressed. He is now fond of this girl, and with help of a friend (a police man – Sumeet Raghavan), he woos the girl. The game begins when due to ....
