“The game begins…….NOW!”

Watching Logan was a heartening experience for me. It was like letting go of yet another childhood memory of mine. Wolverine/Logan for me is a mutant equivalent of Superman. Plot – Let’s just say…. it’s our very own Hugh Jackman playing the most loved mutant for the last time! StarCast – Hugh ‘Wolverine’ Jackman, Patrick ‘X’…

Dirty Dancing….Anybody ??

Calling La La Land a musical wouldn’t be fair to all those musicals that we have enjoyed for decades now. Hollywood had been adding music to its movies since 1927 when The Jazz Singer hit the screen, but it was the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers pairing that received universal attention in the form of classics like The Gay Divorcee (1934), Roberta (1935), Top…

State v/s Jolly L.L.B 2 review

Before I give my verdict on Jolly L.L.B 2, I would like to mention that Arshad Warsi is one of the most versatile actors of his generation and it is great to see the way he approached the character of ‘JOLLY’ in Jolly L.L.B, making it one of the most memorable roles in recent times. In Jolly…

Top 13 performances of 2016

The year 2016 was a ‘mixed bag’ for Bollywood. There were not many record breaking blockbusters to boast about besides Sultan & Dangal of course which took in more than 300 crores. This year saw a change of trend where all the three Khans especially Shahrukh and Salman pulled off some really meaningful roles in the form of Fan & Sultan . Sequels…

Kahaani2..Saving Grace

2016 has its share of ‘squeals’ (I meant……sequels) but barring Housefull 3, Jai Gangaajal or Force 2,  none of the sequels hit the bullseye really. The month of November itself saw two promising movies, Tum Bin 2 and Rock On 2 go down the drain. The makers may blame it on the cash crunch but…
