Luck by Chance, movie review
A starlet and a struggler meet while trying to navigate through the Hindi Film Industry - the Bollywood as most refer to, and end up changing each other's lives forever. Luck by Chance is a slice of film industry life, in which self advancement is the sole motivator. Here, notions of superstition, fate and destiny may underline every decision but it is the gigantic egos, the grand desires and the small opportunities that converge to form strange patterns. Patterns that we call kismet. Or Luck by Chance. In such an unpredictable climate, is success and failure what other's define for you or is it something you decide for yourself? Luck by Chance movie review... Vikram Jaisingh is a sincere young Delhiite whose dream is to make it to the big screen in Bollywood. He finds a companion in Sona Sharma (Konkona Sen Sharma), who plays brief and meaningless roles in 'B' grade films while ....

Dasvidaniya, movie review
Dasvidaniya is a superb story about the realization through the eyes of a dying man. It is a bittersweet comedy about Amar Kaul who is diagnosed with cancer and how he spends the last three months of his life. The film flows through to your heart effortlessly which leaves you with a lump in the throat at times or giggling away at the jokes it throws at you. This film will also make you identify and even fall in love with the simpleton 'loser'. Shy and quiet Amar Kaul lived a mundane run of the mill life - like millions of others. Amar is a 37-year-old timid and lonely bachelor living with his eccentric old mother (Sarita Joshi) who has a hearing problem and is an addict to soap operas on television. Amar’s existence was non-existent to people around him. And then one day a doctor told him that he will die within 3 months. In a hurry Amar Kaul rushed to make a list of things to ....

EMI, movie review
Sattar (Sanjay Dutt) owner of Good Luck Recovery Agency is the saviour and the solution for all those ever caught in the debt trap in the movie EMI. From bhaigiri to business to politics to social work - that's how Sattar wants to progress in life. He has already graduated from bhaigiri to business and is now eager to jump into politics. Most sought after by banks, telecom companies and various multinationals, today his Good Luck Recovery Agency is Number 1 in India. Sattar follows a simple rule when it comes to his business - Loan liya hai to chukao, shaadi kiya hai to nibhao... EMI is a pick on the easy-to-get but taxing-to-hold loans and credits. It’s a narrative of interconnecting characters coming from different strata and style. Anil and Shilpa (Ashish Choudhary and Neha Uberoi) want to begin their lives together. They look at everything as a couple. They have along and fru ....

Ramchand Pakistani, movie review
Ramchand Pakistani is derived from a true story concerning the accidental crossing of the Pakistan-Indian border during a period (June 2002) of extreme, war-like tension between the two countries by two members of a Pakistani Hindu family belonging to the 'untouchable' (Dalit) caste, and the extraordinary consequences of this unintended action upon the lives of a woman, a man, and their son. The singular theme of Ramchand Pakistani is how a child from Pakistan aged eight years learns to cope with the trauma of forced separation from his mother while being held prisoner, along with his father in the jail of a country i.e. India, which is hostile to his own, while on the other side of the border, the wife-mother, devastated by their sudden disappearance builds a new chapter of her life, by her solitary struggle for sheer survival. Belonging to one of the lowest castes in Hinduism (on ....

Mumbai Meri Jaan, movie review
Mumbai Meri Jaan is truly an exceptional movie which touches your heart, which can make you cry. It salutes the spirit of Mumbai and does it so effectively that the viewer can relate through the lives of ordinary persons in the film. Director Nishikant Kamat’s film explores the aftermath of a terrorist attack on the mindset of people. It is about the infamous July 11, 2006 Mumbai train blasts and how these incidents affect the lives of different people in the city. The film simply presents the facts and reality of life and it does not try to be judgmental at all. It is upon the viewer to make his own opinion. The film has five different stories running parallel to each other which are bound by the same incident. Nikhil (R. Madhavan) is software professional and a responsible citizen. Incidently, on the fateful day of July when there are serial blasts on different trains throughout ....
