Love You To Death is a comic film about love that does not exist. The story is about the rich daughter in law and her husband’s family’s attempts to usurp her money who controls the purse strings at home. In the process we have three murders waiting to happen. Love you to Death - movie review... It has some good performances by Chandan Roy Sanyal and the contemporary woman played by Yuki Ellias. Suhasini Mulay is the same lady who played Aamir Khan’s mother in Lagaan. What a transformation! Kallol Banerjee is very natural and Nicholas Brown is the typical character who is into green earth type of campaigns. Sagar Salunke who plays Chhotu the domestic help of the family portrays the archetypal domestic helps of our times.. There are no twists and turns nor anything unusual in the script. Yet it does score over with its originality. Sundari and Ravi (Suhasini Mulay and Ka ....

Agneepath being of the action genre and full of violence is a very unlikely Dharma movie at the same time the screenplay, cinematography and other technicalities are very much its style.

Tutiya Dil - movie review
Tutiya Dil is a romantic comedy. It is a love story gone left and right then a bit wrong and finally right again. It’s a story of today’s youth. It’s right because the characters are human and relatable. It’s wrong because the characters are nuts. Tutiya Dil has a racy screenplay, promising and a passionate team.

So she comes to stay at Vishal’s who understands her situation and genuinely sympathizes with her. But going through this break up, Rhea likens men to turkeys, a species of birds which are always on the hunt for new hens to mate with.

Chaalis Chauraasi - movie review
Mere presence of Naseeruddin Shah, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni and Ravi Kishan in a film had raised expectations of high tension entertainment, and it does, albeit to some extent in Chaalis Chauraasi. Chaalis Chaurasi has a talented cast of this foursome, who by their sheer brilliance save the otherwise sloppy script. Albert (Kay Kay Menon) is a car thief, Bobby (Atul Kulkarni) is a bar singer, Shakti (Ravi Kishan) is a drug peddler and Pankaj (Naseeruddin Shah) a former English professor fallen on hard times happen to come together. Pankaj aka Sir comes up with a plan to rob Rs. 20 crores. He knows the place, and has some information about two men guarding it. They decide pull off a robbery in the guise of police. To present yourselves as cops, you have to act like one and even think like a cop. To a certain extent they succeed, but trouble brews when they come across re ....

Players - movie review
Abbas-Mustan the director duo who have given us thrilling hits like ‘Humraaz’, ‘Ajnabee’ and ‘Race’ have come up with ‘Players’ which is an official remake of the 2003 Hollywood action film, The Italian Job. Players is a notch below the high ‘thrilling’ standards created by them. The film Players, shot in locations in the Goa, United Kingdom, Wellington and Auckland in New Zealand and Siberia, St Petersburg in the Russian Federation has some never-before-seen action sequences directed by Allan Amin. What is missing in the film is proper characterization of its players. Half baked characters, average songs and mediocre acting are the drawbacks. About its plus points, it has good cinematography and editing, fine action sequences and it is a stylish film. This time around, it's not just going to be the men (Abhisheik Bachchan, Bobby Deol, Neil Nitin Mukesh) who ....
