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 ....

PINK, hindi movie
Can't a working girl have a drink and dinner with her friends? What about those girls who stay independently, have a career and once in a while indulge in partying with their friends? Surely, there is a drift towards the thinking of society towards independent minded girls. It is evident in the metros. Yet, a section of the feudal society still labels them as 'characterless girls'. Shoojit Sircar's PINK, a social thriller film depicts the story of three girls who share an apartment in Delhi. They are career minded professionals, the modern age females. National Award winning director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury narrates the story of three Delhi-based girls, and a yesteryear's’ big league lawyer, and how their paths cross. The film also explores the dubious morals of today’s times. Amitabh Bachchan with Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Taring as the 21st Century women, alongwit ....

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 ....

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, movie review
Set on a lavish canvas about Royals residing in palaces and forts, this film directed by Sooraj R. Barjatya is strewed with goody characters preaching ethical ways of living a goody life. The family drama is about a dreamy world set in the era of Kingdoms and consisting of obedient sons, 'agyakari' women where Yuvraj Vijay Singh (Salman Khan) a prince of Pritampur, who is soon to be crowned as king and is engaged to princess Maithili (Sonam Kapoor). Does this awaken memories of Shammi Kapoor's 'Prince' or the much later Anil Kapoor's 'Rajkumar' and dozens of ficticious Raj Gharana Bollywood films. It seems doubtful if this concept would work in the present times of fast paced lives of people who manage to be in touch with their own families with difficulties. Anyways, our prince Vijay is ethical, upright and stubborn which makes him infamous within his own family which consists of his ....

PK - Hindi movie review
Its OMG! Oh My God revisited. PK is a satire on "God and godmen" with an unique narration, superb performances from the pivotal characters, yet is a lengthy film which stretches on the same issue of having called a 'Wrong Number' while seeking the almighty. The Managers of God have been again exposed in this film where an alien (resembling human race) comes to earth on his mission to survey the life and times of the inhibitants of this planet. It is not a futuristic or a sci-fi film, PK deals about the ordeals of the alien man who is clean hearted, doesn't tell lies, doesn't hurt anybody, has the ability to grasp the language within few hours of just holding hands of a human. Like the data being transferred from one hard disk to another. This person has the ability to adapt easily to the new surroundings. It beigns with a space ship hovering around the desert of Rajasthan, it lands an ....

Purani Jeans
Friendship is like a pair of old jeans - the older it gets, the better it becomes - this is the belief that Purani Jeans is based on. Purani Jeans centres around Siddarth Ray (Tanuj Virwani) who learns this belief as he journeys from New York back to his hometown Kasauli, a small hill station in India, after 12 long years. The main hook of the film is friendship. Those unforgettable memories of old friends – somewhat similar to Rock On and Dil Chahta Hai, yet it appears fresh, courtesy the young, bubbly cast of this friendship flick. The film unfolds as a coming-of-age drama about a summer when Sidharth, his best friend Sam (Aditya Seal) and their gang of friends experience the agony & ecstasy of growing up, forming bonds of friendship, trust, jealousy, joy, envy & love. Though a bit unrealistic that the guy comes after 12 years from the US, to wind up everything in his home ....
