Murari The Mad Gentleman, film review
Superstition exists even today in the interiors of India. Murari the Mad Gentleman is an honest effort to showcase the blind beliefs of village people which can be detrimental to the honest efforts of straight forward persons and in this case the troubles caused to a happy go lucky man who hasn't brought any harm to anyone in the village, yet he has to face the wrath of people and made to suffer. The film hits hard on the superstitions present in the society through the comical situations in the life of a mental patient, based on things going on in Bihar rural areas. India’s rural states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and some rural states beliefs blindly exist without any research on superstitions are passed down from generation to generation. These faiths have sprung with an objective to protect from evil spirit, but in this story a character in village who is named as a 'mad per ....

Kya Kool Hai Hum 3, film review
While the first two films, Kyaa Kool Hai Hum (2005) & Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum (2012) were trend-setters, Kya Kool Hain Hum 3 - the third installment of Kya Kool Hai Hum series disappoints. Claimed as India's first porn-com, the 3rd part has the least of genuine comedy content, and as regards the erotica - it has the lowest level of cheap gestures which can hardly 'arouse' interest among just out of college gals and guys. The story revolves around two money-hungry friends, Kanhaiya and Rocky, who get trapped in the international adult film industry. They are in a quandary when Kanhaiya’s lady love, Shalu, wants to meet his family to take their relationship further. The challenge is to convince Shalu’s “Sanskaari Babuji ....

Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho, film review
A political satire loosely based on a real event in Rajasthan, in which a high court sentenced a boy to jail for allegedly raping a buffalo. Debutant Director Vinod Kapri's film is set somewhere in Haryana instead, and thats the reason that the film has a mix of Hindi and Haryanvi dialogues. The film opens on a colorful beginning, in a rustic 'mela' (village fair) with surprises all around. A pundit claiming to bring a Goddess to life in the form of a young girl sitting on a chair in a static blessing posture. The villagers seem to be convinced. Other attractions include, apart from the stand giant wheels, merry-go-round, a sensuous item song "Naach Basanti" and the a beauty competition of buffaloes. The winner is an elderly sarpanch's (a local village chief) buffalo from Tanakpur village. The buffalo is crowned as "Miss Tanakpur" and thats the title of the movie revolving around prep ....

Happy Ending
A rather repetitive venture of Eros International and Illuminati Films. The trailers were enough proof that this film was yet another typical Saif Ali Khan movie, using the exact formula he seemed to have mastered in the past. HAPPY ENDING - movie review So as far as the plot line goes, Happy Ending is a story about a commitment phobic Casanova – Yudi, a rich, handsome and charming, sadly aware of these qualities himself resulting in an endless trail of heartbroken women in his life. A goofy ‘stuck-in-his-married-life’ sidekick for a best friend (Ranvir Shorey) and the circumstantial entry of a charming new girl, so much just like him that this commitment phobic is now serious about her and ends up bending his nature and becomes ready to commit to this lady. Yudi (Saif Ali Khan) is a ‘veteran’ author so to say, a ‘one-novel-wonder’, still cashing in on his singular s ....
