Assassins Creed movie review
Assassins Creed is a very popular video game which the legions of true gamers will vouch for the thrills they got playing it. Therefore it was but natural that it be turned into a big movie franchise, the idea though exciting left a lot to be desired from this movie enterprise which already holds a brand equity amongst the young. The basic premise is about the Apple of Eden which has been lost for five centuries and is the cuss point between the secret societies of The Templars and the highly trained, combative and sworn to their lives, the Assassin Creed. This war between these two factions has been going on for centuries as the The templars want to unleash the power of the Apple of Eden which contains the Genetic code for finishing the free will of the masses thus enslaving them.

A comedy caper about 7 scoundrels pursuing their ulterior motive amid saving their skin from the local cop's hawk eyes. It appears as a realistic story of these petty crooks blundering their way through an exciting gamut of mystery, greed, treachery and running into one riotouscrisis after another. It hilariously illustrates the predicament of Pappi Jaatwala (Manoj Bajpayee) who chances upon a prophecy made by a mystic tramp Bichchi (Annu Kapoor). He is turning 40 and now this good-for-nothing daydreamer has been given a deadline by his girl friend Sona (Aditi Sharma) whilst he appears to lose grip on reality, bent on believing someday very soon, he would stumble upon a hefty windfall.

MS Dhoni, movie review
This film inspires the youth of today and further shows the importance of taking the right decisions at the right time. The film is about the man you know, but not his journey. That's what this biopic is about. M S Dhoni - The Untold story follows the journey of this outstanding wicket keeper and acclaimed cricket captain in India - Mahendra Singh Dhoni, right from his origins as a budding cricketer from Ranchi and then becoming the most successful captain of Indian Cricket Team. Some of the several prominent aspects of Dhoni's life that we weren't aware about was that he initially disdained cricket and his penchant for football instead and then his signature "helicopter shot" which was taught to him by his friend Santosh Lal. The film begins with the ICC Cricket World Cup Final played in 2011 between India and Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai where Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Su ....

Chapekar Brothers movie review
This movie brings alive the life and times of the revolutionaries who were proud of laying down their lives, fighting against the tyranny of the British rule. It was sometime in 1896 that the seeds of the revolution were laid in the city of Pune, the land of Peshwas and the establishment of KESARI - the newspaper headed by Lokmanya Balgangadhar Tilak bringing a change in the mindset of people. To awake, arise and fight against injustice. Giriva Productions' Chapekar Brothers is a part of the history, which touches the period of the late 19th Century when Plague was prevalent amongst the inhabitants of Pune city. Agreed, that the root cause of plague is unhygienic conditions which were man-made, but instead of finding a solution or providing medical relief to the citizens of Pune, the arrogant British Commissioner W. C. Rand ordered the complete family members to evict the city in the c ....
