Love Aaj Kal, movie review
It is the same director who gave us Jab We Met, who has this time has developed a complex but comprehensive screenplay and extracted sensitive performances from Saif and Deepika in the form of Love Aaj Kal. The film Love Aaj Kal deals with love story with different situations of 2 different eras which are Love aaj -2009 and Life kal -1965. Love Aaj Kal is not one of those ordinary love stories that talks of love and heartache. The director takes up the two stories, set in different eras, run them parallel, and they have a similar end. Love Aaj London, San Francisco, Delhi - 2009. Jai (Saif Ali Khan) and Meera (Deepika Padukone) is a modern-day couple in London.

Tashan movie review
Right at the start, a blood red convertible Mercedes races merrily through Ladakh's dusty terrain. This is what Tashan is about - The car swivels so does the radio nervously shuffle between AC/DC's Highway to Hell and Mukesh's rendition of Kabhi Kabhie. Huge canvas, beautiful landscape and then the car loses it control, breaks thru and goes down a lake…. Very impressive till now and one would expect that it will be the most thrilling 2 and half hours in the recent times of mediocre bollywood films. But it was disappointing. Debutant director Vijay Krishna Acharya is brilliant in a few scenes, has been supported by absolutely unbelievable stunts by Akshay Kumar and some truly exotic locales, but through the remaining parts of Tashan, it appears that Yash Raj Banner is experimenting with the Indian audience. They have done a quality job in the promos of this movie, so as in the ini ....

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 ....

Humshakals Film review
3 heroes in triple roles, with a promise of 9 times more fun (3 x 3), Humshakals the latest offering from director Sajid Khan, makes us re-think about Himmatwala (his last outing), though a remake, atleast had some substance and soul in that film. What could have been an iconic film, the attempt fails miserably right after 15 minutes in the film. Sajid Khan has a fetish for UK locations, throwing punches at the royal family, and this one ends up as a pitiable extension of Houseful 1 and 2 which were far better comedies from the director. The story is very short and simple (in fact there is no story, plot or screenplay at all). A conniving uncle of a young tycoon Ashok is keen on grabbing the riches and properties of this innocent nephew. Ram Kapoor is the uncle aka KANS and his nephew is Ashok (Saif Ali Khan). Ashok is seen all throught with Kumar (Riteish Deshmukh), his friend ....
