Namaste England movie review: The film has a pure heart

Namaste England movie review: The film has a pure heart

Vipul Shah likes to come clean. His movies are straight forward, simple and aimed at the heart. "Namaste England" is no exception. It bears a strong thematic resemblance to Vipul`s "Namaste London" that came 11 years ago. In both, the desi Punjabi son-of-the-soil hero makes it his business to bring his London-based wife back to her roots and her senses.

Fry Day movie review: Govinda shines again

At last, Govinda has a blast. And so, I must confess, do we. "Fry Day" is a surprisingly palatable marital comedy with some really funny throwaway lines, and of course the actors' comic timing which goes a long way in supplanting a certain sparkle to even some of the potentially stiff scenes.

Sui Dhaaga: Made In India movie review: Heart-warming but predictable

All without doubt, "Sui Dhaaga" is a sweet, warm-hearted and inspirational film set in the world of working class India. It is a formulaic, feel-good film portraying the travails of a self-made entrepreneur.

Mitron movie review: A predictably formulaic love story

There is nothing exceptional about the predictable love story "Mitron", yet the film charms its way into your heart, giving you a pep talk about love marriage versus arranged marriage and the pitfalls of being afraid along with the benefits of being fearless.

Fanney Khan movie review: Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao blow breath into a rather tedious script

Although there is a plethora of great music in the film, something that lacks melody is the script and we will tell you how.
