The Vow (2012) – Inspired by a true story

I am not a big fan of Channing Tatum but Rachel McAdams, ever since I first watched Sherlock Holmes and then The Notebook. Anyways, I’ll here talk about the film The Vow which is a sweet love story with the finest acting by both Rachel and Tatum. Interestingly, the film is based on a true […]

SALT (2010) – An old-school action thriller

Australian movie director Phillip Noyce is well-known for films like Patriot Games and A Clear And Present Danger, but with Salt, he brings back the old-school thriller with exceptional action sequences and a story that many might believe is overcooked, yet delicious in its own way. Starring Angelina Jolie as CIA agent Evelyn Salt, the […]

Besharam movie song – Dil Ka Jo Haal Hai

Well, I wanted to take a little exception from what I usually write on this blog with few lines for the one of my favourite songs of the upcoming movie Besharam, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Pallavi Sharda. Composed by Lalit Pandit, almost all songs of this movie album are nice and soothing. From few peppy […]

Edward Zwick’s epic war film The Last Samurai is a tribute to the age-old tradition and culture of Japan while portraying the point of contact between western and the 19th century Japan.

Ocean’s Trilogy – An Entertaining, Witty, and Fun Series

This is a post on the Steven Soderbergh-directed Ocean’s Trilogy that consists of Ocean’s Eleven (2001) followed by its sequels Ocean’s Twelve (2004) and Ocean’s Thirteen (2007).

Nevertheless, since the […]

For quite some days I was trying to write about a film but somehow could not find myself hooked into anything. Finally, I picked up August Rush but then preferred to watch it again on DVD before putting my thoughts on the film. August Rush is a drama film (not much romance though) with enough […]
