A Hollywood production titled Breakaway has it release in India as Speedy Sings. The film is a cross-cultural hockey drama set in the Indo-Canadian community in suburban Toronto, Canada.

Chatur Singh Two Star - movie review
Chatur Singh Two Star is based on a novel, titled Chalak Jasoos by M. Raza. The only admirable thing in this film Chatur Singh Two Star is the outstanding cinematography which captures the attractive, wonderful locales of Cape Town in South Africa. All characters try their best and end up indulging in buffoonery. The punches and jokes do not appeal at all. There is nothing like a story in this film. Just unsuccessful attempts to pack one joke after another. Chatur Singh 2 Star enacted by Sanjay Dutt is a police officer always ending up botching up cases and making a fool of himself. He is a disgrace to the Mumbai Police Department. Inspite of making a mess of almost every case handed to him, Chatur Singh has just been handed the biggest case in the department's history. This is a perfect chance for him to prove everyone why he is the best officer they have. A corrupt polit ....

Naughty at 40 - movie review
Naughty at 40 falls below expectations of a Govinda film and more so, since its directed by Jagmohan Mundhra. The production values are fine and there are many lovely locales of Manali, in Himachal Pradesh, India and quite a few scenic locations in London. Naughty at 40 movie review... Bollywood ought to wake up and realize merely including some crude and double meaning jokes with some scantily clad women prancing around, it cannot be called a sex comedy film. Happy (Govinda) is a 40 year old man living in London with his parents Laxminarayan 'Allan' Kapoor (Anupam Kher) and mother – Maya (Smita Jaykar). 'Allan' Kapoor is the richest Indian in London and now the parents want their son Happy to get married.

Lamhaa, movie review
Lamhaa is a social-action thriller about the life of people of Kashmir valley, a story about terrorists and the Indian army’s fight against terrorism. An outright bold and frank approach at the multi-layered turmoil in Kashmir, having quite a few real-life references that simply sums up as a genuine film about a real problem. Fortunately, national award winning director Rahul Dholakis does not exploit the political situation for narrating this love story. Cinematographer Jamie Fowlds captures the natural splendor of Kashmir in its beauty and well so in its sinister shades. Lamhaa movie review... An unidentified ‘company’ controlled by local leaders, generating millions of unaccountable dollars for the benefit of politicians and even the bureaucrats in the Indian and Pakistani intelligence is likely to disrupt and possibly paralyze Kashmir. This company’s mission is to brain ....

Perfect Mismatch, movie review
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. The issue was significant some decades ago, but in the present times, its not at all an issue. Anyway, the film goes as.... Aman (Anubhav Anand) a talented young architect, raised by his Uncle has all the love and care a family could offer, even if he does take it for granted. While working towards his very own dream, his life takes a beautiful turn, when he bumps into the perfect girl Neha (Nandana Sen). The two fall in love, and nothing seems able to come between them. Nothing, that is, until it comes time for their families to meet. Sparks fly.
