Players - movie review
Abbas-Mustan the director duo who have given us thrilling hits like ‘Humraaz’, ‘Ajnabee’ and ‘Race’ have come up with ‘Players’ which is an official remake of the 2003 Hollywood action film, The Italian Job. Players is a notch below the high ‘thrilling’ standards created by them. The film Players, shot in locations in the Goa, United Kingdom, Wellington and Auckland in New Zealand and Siberia, St Petersburg in the Russian Federation has some never-before-seen action sequences directed by Allan Amin. What is missing in the film is proper characterization of its players. Half baked characters, average songs and mediocre acting are the drawbacks. About its plus points, it has good cinematography and editing, fine action sequences and it is a stylish film. This time around, it's not just going to be the men (Abhisheik Bachchan, Bobby Deol, Neil Nitin Mukesh) who ....

Saawariya movie review
Saawariya means beloved. Only that lover who stands the test of time …who overcomes all obstacles… who doesn't care whether he gets the girl or not… as long as he's consumed by love… as long as he remains in a perpetual state of being in love… That man, that rare lover is saawariya. Ranbir Kapoor (Rishi Kapoor's son) is instantly likeable, and Sonam Kapoor (Anil Kapoor's daughter) is undeniably attractive. They are the newest and most promising stars ever offered by our Bollywood film industry. These young stars debut in director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Saawariya which is a stark, lovely story about romance born and rekindled over four nights apparently inspired by the classic Fyodor Dostoevsky's "White Nights". Saawariya's is a leisurely paced love story about two young star-crossed lovers. Raj (Ranbir Kapoor), a minstrel, full to the brim with can-do anything ....

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 ....
