Hello Darling, movie review
Hello Darling the hindi comedy film is a remake of the Tamil film, Magalir Mattum produced by Kamal Hassan. This adult comedy flick is directed by debutante Manoj Tiwari. Hello Darling movie review... Three beautiful women teaming up together to take on their lustful womanizing boss in a hilarious series of events which in the end prove that Women will Rule! The film is a light comedy starring Gul Panaag, Eesha Koppikhar and Celina Jaitley as the three women and Jaaved Jaffrey as the boss. There are many Hollywood comedies on the subject of battle of the sexes but Hello Darling fails to make a mark. The screenplay and direction are a mish-mash of funny gags that simply don’t go down well. The story of Hello Darling is simple, a vice-president of a Mumbai based fashion house, Hardik Vasu (Javed Jaffrey), simply cannot keep his eyes off the women who work in his enterprise. ....

Kis Hudh Tak, movie review
Kis Hudh Tak was earlier titled as "Dia". In one of the publicity banners of this film, a tagline states "Rape is a Crime if you can prove it otherwise it ends up being consent." Kis Hudh Tak movie review... A film about Justice and how far a person will go to get it, it is about love, caring and commitment. It is about anger at the state of our society. Kis Hudh Tak is about the state of our judicial system. And most of all it is about the fact that if you want something bad enough - it is not money or power that helps you to get it - what you really need is intelligence, determination, patience and focus. But above all - you need the strength of conviction to sacrifice, if necessary, that very thing that you hold dearest to your heart. For in the extent of your sacrifice lies the extent of your conviction. Rape in itself is a terrible act but Date rape is gruesome because i ....
