Review: Pizza is the spook-fest that delivers

Review: Pizza is the spook-fest that delivers

There is more to this inventive Pizza than meets the eye, says Nishi TiwariThe horror genre in Hindi films has had quite the patchy past. So when I first heard that the rights of Pizza -- one of 2012's biggest surprise hits in Tamil cinema -- were sold for a whopping amount to make a Hindi remake, I wasn't exactly stoked. Strong word of mouth and generous recommendations from critics suggested that the Tamil original was a breakthrough of sorts, not only in terms of storytelling, but also ..., 1 month ago

The Anupam Kher Show was everything it promised to be, notes Nishi Tiwari. Talk shows on Indian television have had a dubious record.Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai was one of the few well-written shows to have ever aired. Its host Farooque Shaikh lent it rare elegance and dignity with his disposition and unassuming ways.Simi Garewal’s Rendezvous with film stars seemed more like a drawing room conversation with its overly indulgent tone, while the more recent Koffee With Karan suffered from more ...

Review: MTV Splitsvilla 7 will have you in splits

MTV Splitsvilla 7 is the most mindless show even by reality TV standards, says Nishi Tiwari.Twenty scantily clad 20-somethings stand in line in the regal Samode Palace in Jaipur, extremely mindful of their straightened/curled/carefully ruffled hair and makeup, as they size each other up. All of them are either models, students or struggling actors, we are told with kickers that routinely flash on the television screen. Soon, a nattily dressed Nikhil Chinapa, 41, enters the scene and the girls ...

Review: Mad About Dance is not a pathbreaking film

The film leaves much to be desired, writes Nishi Tiwari. The Wikipedia entry of Sahil Prem’s dance movie Mad About Dance describes the film as ‘Essentially a dance film, it focuses on the youth, their dreams, anxieties, disappointments and hopes for their future.’ And while on a superficial level that may be true, the film unfortunately leaves much to be desired. Written and directed by Prem, the film also stars him, alongside the beautiful Amrit Maghera, in the lead role.

Review: Lekar Hum Deewana Dil is a bit of a mess

Lekar Hum Deewana Dil struggles to find its own voice, according to Nishi Tiwari.Mainstream Bollywood of the 1990s had the quintessential yuppie-in-the-making Rahul (mostly played by Shah Rukh Khan in various films) and his new ideas of romance that seemed nothing short of revolutionary at the time. Love is friendship, love is a journey that should culminate in marriage -- ideally after parental approval has been diligently sought and won, the works. Two decades on, the idea of love and romance ...

Review: The Hundred-Foot Journey's got the recipe all wrong

The Hundred-Foot Journey is reduced to plot holes and factual inaccuracies of surprisingly epic proportions, writes Nishi Tiwari. When I think of Om Puri in a Hollywood film, Ayub Khan-Din’s brilliant 1999 film East Is East comes to mind.The delightful British comedy-drama showcased Puri as a conflicted Pakistani patriarch raising a family in England, a role that he played with the exceptional flair we have come to associate with his acting over the years.In ...
