Jazbaa - movie review
An edgy thriller based on the South Korean film Seven Days (2007) that is pacy with a taut screenplay, yet there are a few overdramatic scenes which seem a little out of place. Sanjay Gupta's characters are shown as the seperated families, a single mother, a seperated mother whose daughter has been murdered, a single cop who suddenly crops up from anywhere for the single-mother-lawyer whose daughter has been kidnapped. It is replete with one liners. Like this one, "Rishton mein Bharosa aur mobile mein network na ho toh log gama khelne lagte hein." Jazbaa is about Anuradha Verma, the iron lady, who melts down when her daughter is abducted by the kidnappers who want Anuradha to take up the case to represent a rapist killer who is convicted of murder.

Talvar, hindi movie review
Irrfan Khan's performance, Meghna Gulzar's direction and above all, its story and crisp screenplay by Vishal Bharadwaj makes Talvar a must watch film.

Calendar Girls – Hindi movie review
In these fast paced times, with the virtual world and the Television Channels continuously evolving, and new opportunities are cropping up every day, there is always a new face waiting to be discovered now and then. Now, things have progressed so fast that even a sizzling debutante of her debut film, which may be a hit, disappears from public memory if she doesn’t follow up with subsequent releases or with an ad film or so. A decade ago there was a phase when models featured on the Calendar of a brewery were treated as something out of this world. They became celebrities overnight. It is the same director who made classy and hard hitting films like Chandni Bar, Fashion, Page 3 and Corporate, Madhur Bhandarkar disappoints with his latest offering. The film features 5 girls who hail from different towns & cities of India, and who have been selected to pose for the country's most ....
