Tashan movie review
Right at the start, a blood red convertible Mercedes races merrily through Ladakh's dusty terrain. This is what Tashan is about - The car swivels so does the radio nervously shuffle between AC/DC's Highway to Hell and Mukesh's rendition of Kabhi Kabhie. Huge canvas, beautiful landscape and then the car loses it control, breaks thru and goes down a lake…. Very impressive till now and one would expect that it will be the most thrilling 2 and half hours in the recent times of mediocre bollywood films. But it was disappointing. Debutant director Vijay Krishna Acharya is brilliant in a few scenes, has been supported by absolutely unbelievable stunts by Akshay Kumar and some truly exotic locales, but through the remaining parts of Tashan, it appears that Yash Raj Banner is experimenting with the Indian audience. They have done a quality job in the promos of this movie, so as in the ini ....

Strangers movie review
A truly slick Murder Mystrey that is this film Strangers. Two men, complete strangers to each other and absolutely opposite personalities, are travelling in a train's first class compartment in a train between Southampton and London. Sanjeev Rai (Kay Kay Menon), a successful businessman and Rahul (Jimmy Sheirgill), a struggling writer looking for a break in his career. Strangers opens with an extremely dramatic event that in actuality is only an incident, such as one of the protagonists of the film being arrested for a murder of another of the protagonists. Its opens with Rahul's arrest for -- in all probability at this point for murder of Priety (Nandana Sen). The film then kick-starts its proceedings with Sanjiy Rai and Rahul sharing a first class coupe and sharing stories. They try to know each other and there are visible efforts to entertain each other throughout the journey ....

Om Shanti Om
Om Shanti Om is a Manmohan Desai type of a masala film of the 1970s. It has the premise of reincarnation as was in Subhash Ghai's "Karz". Okay, it is a joyous film which has its silly giggling and overacting in parts, especially the typical mother (Kirron Kher) of a struggler son, who lives, thinks that one day her son would definitely become a super star of Bollywood, since her husband could not fulfill his dream. A typical filmy mother. Its here and a few other scenes where the film appears unrealistic. Debutante Deepika Padukone is the hasina in this case. Shanti has a pretty face, charming smile and an old-world charm… She is the reigning superstar of 70s. Shah Rukh Khan is the deewana, he is in love with her. Om, who is a struggling actor - a junior artist and her biggest fan. He dies in a mishap while watching Shanti in danger on an opulent film set which is on fire. Thi ....

Speed movie review
Speed - the latest hindi movie shot in the picturesque locations of London, starts with a young man (Zayed Khan) who receives an emergency phone call on his cell phone from an unknown woman (Urmila Matondkar). She mentions that she has been kidnapped; and the kidnappers have targeted her child next. She is kept in a farmhouse/ stable from where she puts together the remains of a smashed telephone and makes 'the phone call.' Seems the movie was inspired by Hollywood film, Cellular. However, the main plot of Speed involves an assassination of prime minister (aptly played by Suhasini Mulay) which is masterminded by Raj Zutshi and gets it executed through Aftab Shivdasani. The movie is a story of Zayed Khan who comes to London to convince his girlfriend Tanushree Dutta to give him another chance to prove his love for her.

GST Galti Sirf Tumhari review
With her maiden production, Sarika S Sanjot, the producer of this film strikes it right in Bollywood with her venture GST - Galti Sirf Tumhari. The film begins with an intriguing premise and goes on to keep the audience guessing about the twists and turns in the story. To make it clear once and all, the film has nothing to do with the Goods and Services Tax implemented by the present government in the centre. Though the similarity lies with the ultimate motive with the central fiscal policy aims to bring about financial discipline in the economy, Sarika's comedy-thriller-suspense drama also carries a message about bringing discipline in one's social life. GST-the film is the story about a group of students of a law college in Dehradun, Mussoorie in Uttar Pradesh who take it easy in their lives and indulge in desires unknown to the impending danger they could get into. Arjun, May ....

One noteworthy instance in the film is right in the beginning where the couple while in their dating stage visit a mall and get separated. ....
