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 ....

Don 2 - movie review
The Baadshah is back. And indeed he is! Being the second film of the franchise or “BRAND”, Don 2 creates buzz without much promotion in India. Shot at stunning locations in Switzerland, Germany, Malaysia and India. Speaking of the Don himself, Shah Rukh Khan. His acting is very natural and spontaneous and does not seem scripted. Every thing that he does on screen as Don -from his dialogue delivery, body language, look or style is truly DON. His performances in the stunt and action scenes are done very well. It is said to be the perfect crime and in fact it is! The first half of the film is comparatively slow with all the preparations taking place to commit “THE CRIME” while on the other hand the Interpol officers of Malaysia trying to catch Don in Berlin. The second half of Don 2 moves at a rapid pace and is more engaging, power packed with well executed action and stunt ....

Pappu Can't Dance Saala is yet another Bollywood flick featuring odd couples – the subject which has always connected with audiences. There were many subjects which the hindi film industry has served us - incompatible individuals who somehow hall in love even with their conflicting personalities which are exploited for humour. Ideally, Pappu is a pseudonym addresses to those males who, generally speaking are considered nincompoops.
