  • Movie Review: Satellite Shankar November 8, 2019
    Sooraj Pancholi had a dream debut in HERO [2015], a film produced by Salman Khan. The film underperformed at the box office but the hype of the film was such that it opened at Rs. 6.85 crore, which was the highest then for a film featuring debutants. Sooraj then, shockingly, disappeared and four years later, […]

  • Movie Review: Ujda Chaman November 1, 2019
    Over the years, there have been several films that have tackled various conditions that lower a person’s self-esteem like skin colour, obesity, stunted growth etc. Premature balding, however, has rarely been the central plot point of a film. Two very lesser known films like I M 24 [2012], HAIR IS FALLING [2011] etc have dealt […]

  • Movie Review: Housefull 4 October 25, 2019
    Reincarnation sagas have been immensely popular in Bollywood. There’s a certain charm to see protagonists facing an untimely death and then avenging for the wrongdoings in their next life. Interestingly, there has never been a reincarnation comedy. This void has now been filled thanks to HOUSEFULL 4. The film looks grand in every way and […]

  • Movie Review: Made In China October 25, 2019

    Sometimes, one film is enough to turn an actor into a nationwide star. BAAHUBALI - THE BEGINNING was one such film.
