Toofaan (2021) movie review
The much awaited or shall we say much anticipated movie this time of the year after a dud called Radhe. The trailer of Toofaan seemed fabulous and hard-hitting but the actual movie was a disappointment. This movie now streaming on Amazon is about national integration. Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Parsi only a Sikh and a Buddhist missing from the main religious diversity that India is. Jokes apart, one would have expected it to be a sports film ala Bhaag Milkha Bhaag what with the same team of director, producer and actor teaming up again. Namely Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra with the directorial baton (who even regales us with his two bit August presence as some national boxing official), Excel Studios as the producer and Farhan Akhtar as the hard working actor. There is no doubt that Farhan has but in his sweat and blood to look every inch a boxer at his age. Though Toofaan is a feel good ....

Coolie No 2 (2020) movie review
What is a sure shot formula for a movie's success? A good script, direction, acting or is it screenplay or none of the above. It is but rehash- and that's right, as this seems to be the current flavour for success. Refurbish one's own movies and serving it afresh with new production values, a new star cast and new settings. This is what David Dhavan has done with his own Coolie No 1  (this is his second one after Judwaa). Is it a dearth of new scripts, or did the director find some flaws in his original which he wanted to rectify (if that is the case, then he fails miserably) or was it a tribute to the original that was released in 1995 and now celebrating its Silver Jubilee year? The original Coolie No 1 with Govinda and Karishma was an entertainer and delight to watch. This time around he has taken his son Varun Dhavan to reprise the role of Raju coolie and Sara Ali Khan appears ....

Dhoondte Reh Jaoge, movie review
‘The concept is simple, brilliant, failsafe, unique and guaranteed to work,’ says Anand Pawar (Kunal Kemmu) an honest Charted Accountant but looser in life, to Raj Chopra (Paresh Rawal), a veteran film Producer with no money, heavily in debt as all his previous films have been flops in the film Dhoondte Reh Jaoge. Anand and Raj team up and hatch a plan to raise money to produce a feature film and then actually make it for a pittance. They plot to make it so badly that audiences will reject it on the first day of its release, which would give them a foolproof chance to decamp with the remaining invested funds. All they need to do is raise 100 Crore from various financers and produce the film in 5 Crore. They would then make a film that will never work, a film that will be hooted out on the first day itself and run away with 95 Crore. They want to become instant millionaires i ....

Maharathi, movie review
224 Crores… 3 scamsters... a wily lawyer... an astute ACP... a sleepwalker and a secret locket in a freezer. A game is about to begin in Maharathi... With high stakes and desperate players. A young discontented wife, her eccentric millionaire husband.. Then we have his trusted chauffer-cum-confidante and a wily grumpy lawyer. All think they hold the winning cards. All are wrong... for all are pawns. And as the game unfolds... a suicide will be camouflaged as murder... a phony kidnapping will result in death... an innocent caretaker will get entangled in more than what she bargained for. Maharathi movie review... At stake - freedom from the net cast by the astute ACP Gokhale and Inspector Borkar. As the players stage an unnerving battle to outwit each other, the cops close in for the kill. Everybody will scramble for cover... the plot will get murkier... the lies will come faste ....

Mumbai Meri Jaan, movie review
Mumbai Meri Jaan is truly an exceptional movie which touches your heart, which can make you cry. It salutes the spirit of Mumbai and does it so effectively that the viewer can relate through the lives of ordinary persons in the film. Director Nishikant Kamat’s film explores the aftermath of a terrorist attack on the mindset of people. It is about the infamous July 11, 2006 Mumbai train blasts and how these incidents affect the lives of different people in the city. The film simply presents the facts and reality of life and it does not try to be judgmental at all. It is upon the viewer to make his own opinion. The film has five different stories running parallel to each other which are bound by the same incident. Nikhil (R. Madhavan) is software professional and a responsible citizen. Incidently, on the fateful day of July when there are serial blasts on different trains throughout ....

Mere Baap Pehle Aap, movie review
Comedy specialist director Priyadarshan has come out with another not so great comedy story about a widowed father and his authoritarian son - Mere Baap Pehle Aap. The director who has produced good comedies like Hera-Pheri and Malamaal Weekly comes up with just an average entertainer. Anyway, good performances and the dialogues add fizz to the story. It is the story of an authoritarian son (Akshaye Khanna) who bosses his long-widowed father (Paresh Rawal) about living away the remaining years of his life like a decent old gentleman. But the father, well under the influence of his lusty old friend (Om Puri), is inspired to relive his youth again and marry his childhood sweetheart (Shobhana). And even as the son falls in love with a girl (Genelia D'Souza) who troubles him perpetually, he is worried more about his father’s marriage than his own. Mere Baap Pehle Aap opens with a dre ....
