John Day is a thriller from the producers of the 2008 acclaimed thriller A Wednesday.

John Day - movie review...

Directed by Ahishor Solomon,John Day is lifted from the 2002 Spanish film, La Caja 507 (Box507). It begins with teenage boy impressing his girlfriend by driving into dense forest, and then taking her into an abandoned estate. She is impressed, but that’s the last time we see her and the next scene is her parents carrying out her final rituals and laying her body to peace. What would have been a taut thriller, the film goes haywire as the screenplay loosens its pace and at times it is frustratingly slow. John Day(Naseeruddin Shah) is a bank manager, and a happy family man with his wife (Shernaz Patel) and a teenage daughter. This young girl, after lying to her parents, goes off on a vacation with her boyfriend. The boy wants to be different, and he doesn ....

This action packed story revolves around four conscientious outlaws from North India(probably seems from Bihar) who set out to Mumbai for a dangerous mission. These criminals have entered Mumbai for a hit job, where one of them falls in love with his target and then it becomes complicated.

After his astonishing performance in the super duper hit Rowdy Rathore, released a few months back, Akshay Kumar disappoints in this film.

Joker - movie review...

No wonder, he is nowhere to be seen in almost all the events promoting this film. This is Shirish Kunder’s second directorial venture after his moderately successful film Tees Maar Khan. Supposed to be India's first ever extra-terrestrial drama-comedy – Joker, the only positive substance in Joker is that it does not include any double meaning jokes or for that matter anything which you cannot watch with your family and kids around. Ever wondered if aliens were to visit a village that is not on the map of our country, what hell would break loose?! Agasthya’s village Paglapur, doesn’t appear in the maps of the three states that surround it and nor does any one want to call it their own. During the C ....

Film Review - Jism 2 To love her … is to die Starring: Sunny Leone, Randeep Hooda, Arunoday Singh Directed by Pooja Bhatt Shot entirely in Sri Lanka, Jism 2, the  thriller directed by Pooja Bhatt, which isn’t exactly a sequel to Jism (2003) starring Bipasha Basu and John Abraham. Jism 2, this one too is a thriller yet, falls short of expectations compared to its first part. Jism 2 begins with Sunny Leone lying on the beach thinking whether she did the right thing to fall in love and if it was really worth it? (The viewer would now think if it was worth watching it). Sunny Leone plays Izna, who is a porn star, living life carelessly and having fun all times. She comes across the handsome hunk Ayaan (Arunoday Singh) who later declares that he is an intelligence officer. Ayaan offers her a lucrative Ten Crore Rupees for an assignment which is suppose ....
