  • Movie Review: Bhavesh Joshi Superhero June 1, 2018
    India has its own range of superhero comics since a long time. But unlike the West which is minting huge amount of money by making films on Marvel and DC comic characters, our filmmakers have lagged behind in this aspect.

  • Movie Review: Veere Di Wedding June 1, 2018
    Bollywood has given innumerable bromance flicks. But there have been hardly any such film involving our pretty ladies.

  • Movie Review: October April 12, 2018
    Almost every other film made in Bollywood is a love story or has some element of romance. Hence, it is a genre that has been extremely beaten to death.

  • Movie Review: Baaghi 2 March 30, 2018
    Action has been the mainstay of Bollywood flicks and it’s as important as song and dance.
