Perfect Mismatch was earlier titled as 'Its a Mismatch'. This film Perfect Mismatch is based on the topic of marriages outside the community. Or put it simply inter-cast marriage.

Phoonk movie review

Every once in a while we either hear or experience things which cannot have a rational explanation. Phoonk the movie is about that.

The truth of the matter is that we have very little knowledge and understanding of life and its various mysteries. Phoonk movie review... The story of Phoonk demands an answer from you to the question that no matter how much of a non-believer you are, you can truly stand by your convictions especially when you or your loved ones are seemingly being threatened by demonic forces whose very existence your rational mind refuses to accept? Rajeev (Sudeep) is a successful Construction Engineer with a loving wife, and two children aged 10 and 8. He is an atheist to the core.

Partner movie review
Prem (Salman Khan) comes across Bhaskar Diwakar Chaudhury (Govinda) who is in love with Priya (Katrina Kaif) the rich daughter of a millionaire business tycoon Raichand (Dalip Tahill). Though reluctant at first, how Bhaskar wins over Prem’s heart so that Prem can help him win over Priya’s heart is the rest of the movie. Continue reading Partner movie review... Yes there are some misunderstandings which are resolved rather quick, as well as an unfinished and unneeded track of an underworld don called Chhota Don (Rajpal Yadav) who seems inspired by both Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Though the basic premise of the movie is the same as well as a number of sequences which have been lifted directly, Sanjay Chhel’s screenplay does give the it’s own look and feel which in turn makes PARTNER it’s own unique movie. In PARTNER it’s an equal show for both Salman and Govinda ....

Passengers - Movie review
There have been a spate of sci-fi movies and more so lately, but this is an absolute novel idea of space travel and romance. Largely a three character space odessey, it plays out the feelings between the main protagonists under various circumstances. This one is really different from other space fantasies in its form, storyline and characterization. There are no final frontiers to explore, no alien beings, no worp speed ships (i.e. super light speed, this ship travels @ a measely 50% of light speed) and no chrome plated fancy weapons, a simple tale mounted on a what if situation which is plausible in a not so distant future. Passengers is about a magificient space ship Avalon which is carrying a crew of 258 and 5000 passengers from different walks of life and different skillsets with a promise of a new beginning and bright future. The whole crew and passengers are in hibernation in t ....

Phobia, hindi movie review
Radhika Apte is definitely one of the most under rated actresses in Bollywood. While in some other film she comes up as the glamorous doll, and maybe in the next, she is just the typical girl next door. This film needs to be appreciated for the courageous performance by Radhika Apte. Phobia has number of firsts to its credit. Besides being one-of-a-kind psychological thriller, the makers have incorporated Virtual Reality technology, a first for a Bollywood film. The central character, Mehak (Radhika Apte), an artist by profession, who suffers from agoraphobia, can be seen using a VR set in the movie. Probably, this year's creepiest psychological thriller is about an artist who visualizes violent and negative incidents which have no connection whatsoever. An incident occurs one night while returning from her painting exhibition, and Mehak is molested by the local taxi driver which ....
