Dehradun is the capital city of the state of Uttarakhand in the northern part of India. Located in the Garhwal region, it is 236 km north of India's capital New Delhi and is one of the "Counter Magnets" of the National Capital Region (NCR) being developed as an alternative centre of growth to help ease the migration and population explosion in the Delhi metropolitan area. The city is famous for its picturesque landscape and slightly milder climate and provides a gateway to the surrounding region.

  • Movie Review: Fraud Saiyaan January 18, 2019
    Four years ago, Sonam Kapoor surprised everyone with her comic caper DOLLY KI DOLI [2015]. It was a tale of a woman getting married and then running away with the money of the groom. Now in a gender reversal, Arshad Warsi attempts something similar in FRAUD SAIYAAN. This is a delayed film but fortunately for […]

  • Movie Review: The Accidental Prime Minister January 11, 2019
    Hollywood has churned out many biopics or films based on real-life politicians and ministers. In this regard, Bollywood has been lagging quite a bit. We have had political flicks but they often get fictionalized in order to avoid any trouble. THE ACCIDENTAL PRIME MINISTER hence is a rare film in this regard. It doesn’t attempt […]

  • Movie Review: Uri January 9, 2019
    While we usher into the New Year, one hopes that this year will be better for Bollywood than the last. While 2018 was a rather tumultuous period for films, 2019 looks more promising. 2019 will open with the release of URI: THE SURGICAL STRIKE, a film based on true events of the Uri attack that […]

  • Movie Review: Simmba is a sure-shot winner December 27, 2018
    Telugu film TEMPER is one of my favourites. A film that’s very fresh in my memory. A well-packaged entertainer, it was embellished with a bravura, commanding performance by the lead man Jr NTR. The expectations from SIMMBA - an official adaptation of TEMPER - are monumental. Rohit Shetty has to live up to the expectations […]

  • Movie Review: Zero December 21, 2018
    ZERO is a crucial film for varied reasons. The main reason being, it’s the first collaboration of Shah Rukh Khan and Aanand L Rai, who has a hat trick of hits to his credit [TANU WEDS MANU, RAANJHANAA and TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS]. Unlike their previous ventures, the stakes are high this time. The actor […]

  • Movie Review: Kedarnath December 6, 2018
    The charm of inter-faith love stories can never fade away. Since a long time, several filmmakers have made some memorable films on this topic like BOBBY [1973], JULIE [1975], BOMBAY [1995], GADAR - EK PREM KATHA [2001], VEER-ZAARA [2004], ISHAQZAADE [2012], RAANJHANAA [2013] etc. Now, Abhishek Kapoor attempts to tell one such story in his […]

  • Movie Review: 2.0 November 29, 2018
    Can you imagine a life without a cell phone in today’s times? The answer obviously would be a ‘No’ as it’s like a boon in today’s times and almost like a digital extension of one’s arm. Ironically, even the ones fighting over the health hazards of mobile phone towers can’t help but use a mobile […]

  • Movie Review: Bhaiaji Superhittt November 23, 2018
    The last decade saw the emergence of the action comedy genre. Rohit Shetty exceled a lot in this genre as most of his films had action coupled with some fun moments. Besides, SINGH IS KINNG [2008], READY [2011] KHILADI 786 [2012], DISHOOM [2016] etc. were some of the popular action comedies that worked for the […]

  • Movie Review: Pihu November 16, 2018
    The most indispensable part of parenting, especially during the initial years, is supervision. It’s impossible that any parent would let the child go off their sights or that of the guardians. The fear that their kid might get hurt is forever looming over their heads. Vinod Kapri’s PIHU plays on this idea. It attempts to […]

  • Movie Review: Mohalla Assi November 15, 2018
    Globalization has brought the world closer. But a section of people, who are very rooted and swear by their age-old traditions and values, feel threatened by it. They always fear the Westerners are here to ruin their ancient tradition and that would mean a loss of identity. Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s MOHALLA ASSI majorly talks about […]

  • Movie Review: Thugs Of Hindostan is a King-Sized disappointment! November 8, 2018
    A Diwali release is an event in itself. And this year, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan team up for the first time in the hugely awaited THUGS OF HINDOSTAN. Let's come to the point right away. Does THUGS OF HINDOSTAN manage to live up to the monumental expectations? Or does it turn out to be […]

  • Movie Review: Baazaar October 25, 2018
    The stock market is the most important aggregation of India’s financial centre, Mumbai. The updates of the rising and falling stocks always makes it to the news regularly. Yet, hardly any film has been made on this subject. In the last decade, Samir Hanchante’s GAFLA [2006] sank without a trace, although it was a decent […]

  • Movie Review: Namaste England October 17, 2018
    Times have changed when it comes to women empowerment and gradually, the people on the whole are realizing that equal opportunities are a must for people of all genders. Yet, a lot needs to be done especially in the places which are away from the mega cities. NAMASTE ENGLAND, which marks the return of Vipul […]

  • Movie Review: Badhaai Ho October 17, 2018
    Since the time Ayushmann Khurrana debuted in 2012 with VICKY DONOR, he has become the poster boy of films which were unconventional, taboo and yet attracted moviegoers in hordes. While his first film talked about sperm donation, his last year’s sleeper hit SHUBH MANGAL SAAVDHAN dealt with erectile dysfunction. Now he’s back with yet another […]

  • Movie Review: Jalebi October 12, 2018
    Vishesh Films, headed by Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt, are known for their small-budget, high-concept films. They have given some memorable films and chartbuster songs but since the last few years, their reputation has taken a beating. None of their films after the blockbuster AASHIQUI 2 [2013] have worked well. The number of films made by […]

  • Movie Review: FryDay October 12, 2018
    A film shot in a house replete with madcap characters is a great idea used very well in the past. Priyadarshan tickled the funny bone of audiences with GARAM MASALA [2005], which was majorly set in a luxurious flat. Later, all the films of the HOUSEFULL franchise also dealt with this scenario and audiences loved […]

  • Movie Review: Helicopter Eela October 12, 2018
    Motherhood, considered to be one the most beautiful aspects of life, comes with its set of challenges. Safeguarding the child becomes utmost important for mother, and also for the father. While some mothers are easy going and allow the child to develop and mature with minimal supervision, some are controlling and get too involved in […]

  • Movie Review: Tumbbad October 11, 2018
    We have lagged behind considerably in the horror genre with only a handful of films succeeding in impressing the audiences. A sub category in horror genre is that of period horror. Here, only Vikram Bhatt has made a mark with 1920 [2008] and HAUNTED 3D [2011]. The rest of the films in 1920 franchise and […]

  • Movie Review: Venom October 5, 2018
    Over the past few years, we have seen the rise of superhero films that have now become one of the best performing movies at the box office. In fact, Marvel has developed a fan base for almost each and every character they have, with standalone films doing brisk business. However, away from the Disney – […]

  • Movie Review: LoveYatri October 4, 2018
    The state of Gujarat is considered quite vibrant and colourful but surprisingly, very few films are based there. Out of these films, most of the movies based in this state have failed to do justice to its USP. Only select ones like KAI PO CHE [2013], RAEES [2017] and the recently-released MITRON [2018] have captured […]
