Dam 999 - movie review
Dam 999 is a film to watch in a 3 Dimensional format. Only disappointment here is that the 3 D effects are just peppered somewhere in between and then the special effects come to play in the last 20 minutes of this film. It is produced by UAE based BizTV Networks and the direction and script is credited to upcoming director Sohan Roy, who is primarily an established mariner with a Guinness Book record to his credit. Dam 999 movie review... The film is based on real life incidents bringing to life the memories of 1975 Banqiao Dam disaster in China which claimed the lives of an estimated 250,000 people. It is a movie with a social cause which describes the hazards dams can cause and creates awareness among the masses about the impending dangers of a dam collapse, if not attended on time. Dam 999's screenplay is now archived into the Permanent Core Collection of The Academy’s Margar ....

Love Breakups Zindagi - movie review
Love BreakUps Zindagi is about an exploration that asks if opposites attract or repel? Is love an option or a choice? And what if The One is already with Another? The film Love Breakups Zindagi tries to answer the question related to love, breakups and life. Jai (Zayed Khan) and Naina (Dia Mirza) are almost “settled" in their life but missing something or someone who will complete them. Jai feels that magic and serendipity have passed him by. Naina has taught herself that a less than fulfilling life is enough for her. But is it?

Kaccha Limboo, movie review
Kaccha Limboo is Writer-Director Sagar Bellary’s genuine attempt of a journey into the mind and heart of an overweight and somewhat irritated child Shambhu and tries to reason out why the kid is always so distressed and lonely. Kaccha Limboo is a coming-of-age early teen flick which is largely shot in the real corridors and classrooms of a Mumbai School. The slice-of-life moments in the school life are a delight, like when the kid is trying to copy his parent's signature in his school calendar, and many other hilarious moments that have you in splits. It is a tale of Shambhu (Taheer Sutarwala), a fat and clumsy 13 year old boy who has everything going against him - fights with seniors in school, warning from principal and so he decides to run away from home. Oddball Shambhu just can't fit in... like desperately trying to be a part of a group of his school friends, but they ign ....

Udaan, movie review
Udaan is the story of a school student who isn’t so happy going to his family during his vacation. This sensitive topic and its characters are handled with understanding and maturity. Director Vikramaditya Motwane’s film is not preachy as it may seem from its promos. A straightforward tale of a young boy and his relationship with his rigid father and helpless younger step brother told in the most simplistic way. Udaan movie review... Rajat Barmecha plays the role of an adolescent who has stepped into his teens and how he faces a tyrant father, a step brother he never knew existed and how he eventually breaks the shackles and frees himself from a world that's slowly suffocating him. After being abandoned for eight straight years in boarding school, Rohan (Rajat Barmecha) returns to the small industrial town of Jamshedpur and finds himself closeted with an authoritarian father (R ....

Red Alert, movie review
The launch of a worthwhile revolution has to have a foundation of clear-cut objectives. And where the aim itself is not defined, what is the point of just running a parallel government type organization in the name of revolution? Red Alert movie review... This will lead nowhere, as it is deceiving yourself and cheating your followers who have put their faith in you. Director Anant Mahadevan has come up with an outstanding movie Red Alert which is based on a true story. It has a slick narrative and has turned out to be an edge of the seat thriller, which honestly presents both the sides of the conflicting groups - administration and the naxalites. Even the men in uniform stand exposed, exploiting their powers especially when an innocent girl is seen by them as their prey. 'Red Alert: the War Within' is based on the true story of Narasimha (played by Suniel Shetty), a poor farm la ....

Raajneeti, movie review
Raajneeti is a story about Indian politics, the democracy and the general elections. It depicts just a few powerful people control the destiny of millions.

He skillfully portrays their unstoppable ambition, and their bitter and violent battle to achieve it. Raajneeti movie review... It is a contemporary adaptation of politics of power and deriving its primary plot and central characters from the epic. More somewhat like Shyam Benegal’s Kalyug which had the character of Karna, here we have Sooraj who is trapped terrible dilemma where his loyalty to his friend threatens to destroy his own family. Sooraj (Ajay Devgan) is a leader who rose from the backward classes with anger in his heart and leadership on ....
