Another movie I am almost tempted to skip. But one can't bail out of work, every time the going gets tough, can they? Can they? ...more

Manjhi The Mountain Man - Review

[Poster for Manjhi The Mountain Man with Manjhi The Mountain Man, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte, Ketan Mehta]
quick review:

Leaves you worried from within. Worried for the country, worried for humanity. Yes, that means it is a film you must watch at least once, even if you don't rush to the theater.

quick review:

When you feel bad for the actors, you don't need to say any more about the film.

Phantom - Preview

[Poster for Phantom with Phantom, Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif, Kabir Khan]
The combination of thriller and a disturbing, real-life incident doesn't quite work. At least, not in the trailer. ...more

Brothers - Review

[Poster for Brothers with Brothers, Akshay Kumar, Siddharth Malhotra, Jacqueline Fernandez, Karan Malhotra]
wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

Long, slow and futile. A few smooth yet powerful action moves. That's it. Then, the only words that linger are - long, slow and futile.

wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

Okay, okay, we get it. It is satire. The satire is witty too. But then, what? Nothing beyond the concept really. Also, does satire always have to be preachy?

Drishyam - Review

[Poster for Drishyam with Drishyam, Ajay Devgan, Tabu, Nishikant Kamat]
quick review:

I don't remember the last time my emotions were engaged in a thriller, let alone a pounding heart and racing mind. A psychological thriller that hooks, thrills and keeps you thinking after it is done.

Masaan - Review

[Poster for Masaan with Masaan, Vicky Kaushal, Richa Chadda, Neeraj Ghaywan]
wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Despite being set in a crematorium and having a sense of morbidity throughout, Masaan isn't grim. Nor is it gay despite its wit. Masaan carries equanimity of sorts in the “life is what it is” kind of a way with simplicity and flair in equal measure.

quick review:

Poetry’s transitioned to film - worth watching, but this one offers no scope for true storytelling.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan - Review

[Poster for Bajrangi Bhaijaan with Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kabir Khan]
wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

The sentiment carries the film rather than the star, for a change. Yet, film too long to do justice to a theater outing.
