'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
'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
'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.

‘Koyelaanchal’ review: Turbulent drama of the damned

When the gods holler, the skies open up. Such is the milieu of monstrous mayhem and diabolic allegiances that courses through the veins of this earthy robust and homespun film about the coal mafia in Dhanbad.

‘Million Dollar Arm’ review: Poor country cousin of ‘Slum Dog Millionaire`

Its intention seems to entice and convert youngsters, who have never played the national sport of the United States before.

`Dishkiyaoon` review: Too many characters ruin the show

Debutant director Sanamjit Talwar unnecessarily complicates the gangster flick with layer after layer of characterisation.

‘Vallinam’ Review: Power, politics and sports

In India, the fate of a sport lies in the hands of those with power and political influence. Only those who are privileged get to represent the country in a respective sport while the rest have to struggle entire lifetime to even get an opportunity.

`Walking With Dinosaurs` Review - A visual delight for kids

From the hearth of BBC Earth Films, `Walking The Dinosaurs` is an edutainment film that educates the audience about animals, particularly the dinosaurs that wandered on the surface of the planet, about 70 million years ago, during the Creataceous period.

`Rangrezz` review: Film questions overrated emotion- love

Way back, Tina Turner sang "What`s love got to do with it?"
