Hostel, movie review
Few Indians are aware of the number of suicides that occur in Indian Hostels as a result of the phenomenon termed as ‘Ragging’. This sadistic practice has become a ritual wherein students are beaten up, stripped, paraded naked, starved, tortured, molested and even raped by their seniors. Hostel movie review... Since victims of ragging find it humiliating to report sexual abuse to their parents or others, most ragging-related crimes go unreported. Munnabhai MBBS and even 3 Idiots had a scene or two about this suffering which is called as ragging. Thus, this cruel practice continues year after year and has claimed (and is still claiming) the lives and careers of innumerable students. The film ‘Hostel’ is a shocking eye-opener about this evil practice and is a wake-up call for all of us. Karan (Vatsal Seth), gets into an engineering college and takes up lodging in the so-ca ....

Lamhaa, movie review
Lamhaa is a social-action thriller about the life of people of Kashmir valley, a story about terrorists and the Indian army’s fight against terrorism. An outright bold and frank approach at the multi-layered turmoil in Kashmir, having quite a few real-life references that simply sums up as a genuine film about a real problem. Fortunately, national award winning director Rahul Dholakis does not exploit the political situation for narrating this love story. Cinematographer Jamie Fowlds captures the natural splendor of Kashmir in its beauty and well so in its sinister shades. Lamhaa movie review... An unidentified ‘company’ controlled by local leaders, generating millions of unaccountable dollars for the benefit of politicians and even the bureaucrats in the Indian and Pakistani intelligence is likely to disrupt and possibly paralyze Kashmir. This company’s mission is to brain ....

Its time to free the country of violence, terrorism and corruption. This story begins where the first Krantiveer ends and this time it’s about the revolution that concerns the younger generation and is all about the power game that power drunk people are interested in.

The last time around, we rooted out the devils that came from across the seas. Now the demons are within. And they are more vicious and wicked. We need to fight them wit ....

Shaabash, movie review
Shaabash! You Can Do It doesn’t live up to its title at all. The film has a weak direction, almost no storyline and average direction. There are some efforts visible on the part of the actors.

Zor Lagaa Ke Haiya, movie review
Zor Lagaa Ke Haiya is a film that carries a social message of saving the environment in the present age of rampant industrialization where money talks. Mithun Chakraborty is a homeless man who joins hand with a bunch of children to save a tree that faces the axe from a man who wants to bring brick and mortar in place of the tree’s lush green canopy. Zor Lagaa Ke Haiya movie review... We must have observed certain areas in our vicinity, which once had fine healthy trees and lots of greenery just some time back – now lay barren with cemented roads or just new construction coming up. This is often witnessed even at many spots on our city roads – with mindless cutting of trees often making way for display of hoardings or then just for road widening. And the aam aadmi is going on with his life with an indifferent attitude. What a shame! Now its up to the children who are our fu ....

Anubhav, movie review
Anubhav has many layers and talks about how life is not completely black or white. It is about a character that takes a positive stand in life, gets on with his decision and then eventually looses his way. One point precisely conveyed in Anubhav by director Rajiv Nath is that men are as vulnerable to sexual abuse as women in the Bollywood which is the Hindi film industry based in Mumbai. Anubhav (Sanjay Suri), Antara (Shruthi Seth) and Aadi (Anoop Menon) who nurture big Bollywood dreams, are products of the Bombay theatre academy. It is by now generally known what all it takes to face the struggle in Bollywood and achieve the success a struggler dreams of. During his struggling times, Anubhav comes across Meera (Gul Panag) who excitedly declares that she is his fan. They fall in love and get married against Meera’s rich parents’ wishes. They are now supported and back ....
