Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013) – Truly Inspirational

The day I first watched the trailer of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, the first thing I wanted to do in my imagination is to replace Farhan Akhtar from the lead but did not find the right choice. And as I watched the movie in theatre and witnessed his fabulous performance, I became sure that no one, […]

Ghanchakkar (2013)

Ghanchakkar is a unique suspense film mixed with witty comedy that may or may not drive you to that zone of comic thriller. With a good cast which includes Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan, Rajesh Sharma, director Rajkumar Gupta tried to bring some lighter moments but somehow failed to make it an edgier and funnier movie. […]

The Last Exorcism (2010)

This is yet another found-footage supernatural horror film I have watched in recent time, including that of Paranormal Activity and Grave Encounters. What makes The Last Exorcism different from others is its subject and, of course, the attempt to give a conclusion with no such definite “point of view” rather leaving everything to the audience to construct […]

Remember Me (2010)

Frankly, I don’t know where to start; this movie was not what I expected. REMEMBER ME is so original in treatment that even though it seems a film about love and romance, it takes you more towards an emotional drama with a surprisingly rich story. This is a heavy romantic drama and at the same […]

According to Greta (2009) – an offbeat comedy drama
