Gabbar Is Back movie review: Akshay Kumar's power punch to corruption in style!

Word of caution for all those who assumed Akshay Kumar's 'Gabbar Is Back' is similar to the classic 'Sholay' (which made 'Gabbar' synonymous with great villains in Hindi cinema) will have to buy a ticket and watch the film to understand that's not the case.

'Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!' review: Suave, stylish edge of the seat thriller

The television series directed by Basu Chatterjee starring Rajit Kapur and KK Raina has made it impossible to picture the Bengali sleuth Byomkesh Bakshi being played by any other actor on screen.

'Insurgent' review: Shailene Woodley shines on
'Insurgent' review: Shailene Woodley shines on

Based on Veronica Roth's second novel from the Divergent trilogy, "Insurgent" is a technically brilliant film, packed with slick, high-action drama. But unfortunately it lacks the novelty factor in terms of the oft seen and trite visuals and the plot is frivolous.

'Left Behind' review: Rapture 'less'

Many Christian faiths believe and talk about an end-time event in future, when all true believers who are still alive before the end of the world, will be taken from the earth by god into heaven. The term describing this event is 'The Rapture'.

'Jigariyaa' review: Splashy colourful love story

Shakespeare lives! It was 'Hamlet' in Kashmir last week. It's 'Romeo and Juliet' in Agra this week. Wow, 'Bharat Darshan' with the Bard.

'Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami' review: Deserves a 21-gun salute
'Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami' review: Deserves a 21-gun salute

Ask anyone. It’s the hardest thing to play dead. Satish Shah did it in the cult comedy Kundan Shah’s 'Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron'. Anupam Kher, who plays dead in this week’s release, also played dead in that appalling comedy Rahul Rawail’s 'Buddha Mar Gaya'.

'Yaan' review: A big yawn
'Yaan' review: A big yawn

'Yaan' gives you the feeling that here's a film that was solely made to entice audiences with stunning visuals. The good news is that it succeeds at that, but the bad news is that great visuals don't make up for sloppy writing and execution.

'Desi Kattey' review: Earthy, robust and virile

Two child actors, both performing very badly, grow up to be adult actors, one of whom turns out as a decent actor. As for the other, a crash course in basic emoting is recommended.

'Creature 3D' review: A big shiver giver
'Creature 3D' review: A big shiver giver

Son of a gun! The big fat wicked monster in "Creature 3D" does have good taste. He attacks our very lovely Bipasha Basu. Nudging us into a rude awakening to a time when monsters, ghouls and other evil forces in Hindi horror films chased the likes of Huma Khan and Asha Sachdev.

`Hate Story 2` review: Surveen Chawla is watchable!

Movie Review: Autonagar Surya

In the history of cinema, oft has the subject of political thriller been told and retold. But this Deva Katta directed film `Autonagar Surya` makes you sit and take notice of the narrative unfold itself in a peculiar yet interesting way.

`Manjunath` true story of a braveheart who said `I won`t`

The bereavement of parents has been done to death in our cinema. And I do see a cruel pun in that. From Om Puri and Revathi mourning so gracefully for their martyred son in `Dhoop` to Farouque Sheikh and Sarika grieving far more openly in "Club 60", the stretch of sorrow for the era of lost parenting has been long and productive.
