When Jaws released in June 1975, it changed the way Americans watch movies, says Aseem Chhabra. It was the summer of 1975 and Americans were out celebrating their greatest outdoor passion -- going to beaches along the East and West coasts, tanning their bodies, worshipping the sun, reading bestsellers and cooling off by swimming in the sea. Image: A scene from Jaws. The year before millions of Americans had already read Peter Benchley's bestseller Jaws, the hunt for a giant man-eating white ... Rediff.com, 1 month ago

Review: Bombay Velvet is marred by weak storytelling

Bombay Velvet spends too much time on period details and loses focus, notes Aseem Chhabra.
