Krrish is the latest in a country full of superheroes

This week we hold our breath for Krrish 3, which promises to be the closest thing to an above average Indian superhero movie we’ve ever had. Will it work? We hope so, because we’re starting to look rather foolish now.

Mickey Virus review: Shades of Vicky Donor and a lot of facepalms

Satyagraha review: Bachchan, Bajpai fail to save film

Silver linings include Bachchan and Bajai’s performances, which are the best of the lot.

Movie Review: Bombay Talkies will make your heart happy

To compare the four stories would be silly because they are all personal tributes to Indian cinema and its role in our lives across generations. That’s all they really have in common, beyond the remarkable performance of every one of the actors.

Movie review: Aashiqui 2 deserves the Golden Kela for being predictable

Aditya Roy Kapoor is very handsome, Shraddha Kapoor is pretty, but neither of them can redeem this remake. And it doesn't help that Aashiqui 2's soundtrack is entirely forgettable.

The funny bits are there but they're too far apart. So lower your expectations, ignore the women and Nautanki Saala will be enjoyable.
