Review: Kaun Kitne Paani Mein disappoints

Kaun Kitne Paani Mein fails to realise its potential, says Nishi Tiwari. Nila Madhab Panda burst on the Indian film scene with the critically acclaimed I Am Kalam in 2011. After briefly touching upon the issue of water shortage in his follow-up film Jalpari, the fillmaker’s new film -- the Kunal Kapoor and Radhika Apte starrer satire Kaun Kitne Paani Mein -- revolves around water politics in a fictional Odisha village. The film opens with an honour killing where the king of a village ... Rediff.com, 15 minutes ago

Review: Fantastic Four is substandard fare

Fantastic Four is a disappointing reboot of a disappointing superhero franchise, says Nishi Tiwari. Their massive box office collections notwithstanding, the Fantastic Four films have consistently received lukewarm response from superhero film fans. The 2015 reboot of Marvel’s oldest superhero team is no different. Tim Story’s Fantastic Four, starring Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Michael B Jordan as Johnny Storm/ the Human ...

Review: Bangistan is a colossal disappointment

Bangistan is not the political satire it claims to be, says Nishi Tiwari. You know a political satire is a colossal failure if you can’t tell who the joke is really on. The only funny gag in film critic-turned-filmmaker Karan Anshuman’s debut feature Bangistan appears towards the end. Two people cosplaying as stormtroopers make a fleeting appearance at a religious conference in Krakow, Poland, where the heads of religious faiths from all around the world have assembled to ...

Review: I Love NY, a great disservice to New Year's Eve and New York

I Love NY is criminally unremarkable, says Nishi Tiwari. I Love NY opens with Sunny Deol’s (protagonist Randhir Singh) voiceover over snapshots of Chicago, who describes the city he resides in as mechanical, unimaginatively designed, mundane. Ironically, he does so in a manner that is passive aggressive in the sense that it conveys a secret pride in his internalised Indian-Americanism more than the intended weariness. One can blame it on Deol’s famously blasé dialogue ...

Review: Second Hand Husband puts the fun in Punjabi

Second Hand Husband is entertaining in parts, says Nishi Tiwari. Actor-singer Gippy Grewal had mentioned in an interview that he had attempted to make a content-driven comedy of Piku and Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ calibre in his debut Hindi film Second Hand Husband. Let’s just say that Second Hand Husband may not be poised to break box office records but it does succeed in delivering the funnies every once in a while in the course of its runtime.Also marking the Bollywood debut of ...

Review: Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho lacks bite

Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho takes off with a great premise but fails to realise its full potential, says Nishi Tiwari. Journalist-turned-filmmaker Vinod Kapri's debut feature Miss Tankapur Haazir Ho is a social satire replete with many amusing elements. The story of a young man accused of raping a buffalo and consequently being forced to marry it by the village panchayat is based on true events and that suitably piqued Kapri’s interest. Set in a village called Tanakpur in Uttarakhand, the ...

'I come with a lot of baggage because of my dad Govinda'

'Being a star kid was fun because I used to get a lot of attention. But sometimes, that brought me a lot of criticism like, ‘oh, she’s so snooty.'' 'People have their own notions about kids whose parents are famous but my upbringing was very normal.' Govinda's daughter Tina Ahuja talks to Nishi Tiwari/ Rediff.com ahead of her Bollywood debut.When Govinda was at the peak of his acting career, he'd often be talked about for his amusingly colour-coordinated clothes in his films, apart ...
