Apna Asmaan movie review
Ravi (Irfaan Khan) and Padmini (Shobhana) are happily married. Apna Asmaan is about how they share a strained relationship due to their teenage son Buddhi's (Dhruv Piyush Panjnani) intellectual handicap. Buddhi, a mildly autistic slow learner displays his flair for art but his parents, with their middle-class insecurities, neither recognize nor encourage his talent.

While Dr Sen, the neurologist, tries hard to make Padmini accept ....

Buddha Mar Gaya review
Buddha Mar Gaya is all about money and its side effects. Laxmikant Kabadiya (Anupam Kher) is a business tycoon, whose company is on the verge of offering an Initial Public Offering (IPO) of Rs 5000 crore. Post the IPO it would make LK’s company one of the largest business houses in the country. And ofcourse a lot of money within his family too. However, LK dies a night before the IPO opens in the market. This leads to series of erroneous events. A holy spiritual man, by Vidyuth Baba (Om Puri) advices LK’s family to hide the news of his death for the next two days, till the time the application money for the shares would be received. In the process of hiding LK’s death, the family undergoes a lot of dramatic, sudden and some funny events. A typical black comedy for the youth and the front benchers who would "die" laughing at some funny adult moments on adultery. The directo ....

Saat Uchakkey, movie review
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. His girl friend Sona is skilled at the intricate art of manipulating any person for her benefit with fish apenty in the big wide sea. She does so with charm and ease. Loitering around the streets of Ol ....

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 ....

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 ....
