Dhoondte Reh Jaoge, movie review
‘The concept is simple, brilliant, failsafe, unique and guaranteed to work,’ says Anand Pawar (Kunal Kemmu) an honest Charted Accountant but looser in life, to Raj Chopra (Paresh Rawal), a veteran film Producer with no money, heavily in debt as all his previous films have been flops in the film Dhoondte Reh Jaoge. Anand and Raj team up and hatch a plan to raise money to produce a feature film and then actually make it for a pittance. They plot to make it so badly that audiences will reject it on the first day of its release, which would give them a foolproof chance to decamp with the remaining invested funds. All they need to do is raise 100 Crore from various financers and produce the film in 5 Crore. They would then make a film that will never work, a film that will be hooted out on the first day itself and run away with 95 Crore. They want to become instant millionaires i ....

Dev D, movie review
Dev D is a modern-day interpretation of the classic novel "Devdas" by Sarat Chandra. Dev, Paro and Chanda of Dev D reflect the sensibilities, conflicts, aggression, independence, free thought, exuberance and recklessness of the youth of today.

It is written and directed by Anurag Kashyap and produced by UTV Spotboy. Son of a rich Punjabi Businessman, Dev (Abhay Deol) and Paro (Mahi Gill) are childhood sweethearts. But Dev, being an insec ....

Meera Achrekar, a mathematics teacher at Vishwaprem Vidyalaya, has been happy and single for quite a while now.

The meticulous number cruncher is, despite not being the classic eye-candy-teenage- fantasy- fodder, a huge hit in class.

Living with her family in their small home in a Mumbai chawl, Meera was init ....
