Rajjo review: This movie is no Pakeezah

But the creators of Rajjo are too lazy or too unimaginative to produce the slightest morsel of newness. Or truth. Instead, they serve up a truly terrible rehash of all the possible brothel-based movies you've ever seen. #Bollywood #Films #Kangana Ranaut #Movie review #MovieReview #movies #Pakeezah #Rajjo

Movie Review: Why Hansal Mehta’s Shahid is worth a watch

Names do have a strange power. The root of the word Shahid comes from Arabic and in Urdu, it has split into two pronunciations: shaahid meaning ‘witness’ and ‘shaheed’ meaning ‘martyr’. Shahid Azmi was both. #Hansal Mehta #MovieReview #Raj Kumar #Shahid

Pakistan’s Oscar hopeful is Naseeruddin Shah-starrer Zinda Bhaag

Zinda Bhag is by no means a perfect film, but it takes risks and is immensely watchable. It's a film about serious things that refuses to take itself too seriously. That deserves applause. #Academy of Motion Pictures #Bollywood #Naseeruddin Shah #official entry #Oscars #Pakistan #Pakistani films #Zinda Bhaag

John Day review: Naseeruddin Shah, Randeep Hooda keep the film afloat

Naseeruddin Shah, as the title character, puts in a more complex, non-phoned-in performance than most directors have managed to extract from him in the last couple of years. #Ahishor Solomon #John Day #Naseeruddin Shah #Randeep Hooda

Madras Cafe review: A simplistic take on a serious event in history

What really makes this film fall flat is the vagueness of its central dramatic thread – Tamils in Madras Café die as innocents and kill as guerrillas, but what are they dying and fighting for? That is never really explored, politically or emotionally. #Bollywood #John Abraham #Madras Cafe #Madras Cafe review #MovieReview #Nargis Fakhri #Shoojit Sircar #Sri Lankan Tamils

BA Pass Review: Vampy housewife, loverboy student make this film first class

The tale of how the orphaned, college-going Mukesh is entrapped by sultry older woman Sarika is most certainly noir, but it showcases none of the regular Bollywood pitstops on the urban darkness tour. #Movie review #Mukesh #Shadaab Kamal #Shilpa Shukla

Movie Review: Uncomplicated, Gippi deals with refreshingly new topics

At the centre of the film is the young Riya Vij, perfectly personifying the sometimes sulky, dance-crazy schoolgirl who’s picked Shammi Kapoor as the alternative soundtrack to her life. #Karan Johar #Movie review #Movie Review Gippi #Riya Vij
