Happy New Year: The Good, Bad and the Ugly

Happy New Year: The Good, Bad and the Ugly

Happy New Year's moral compass has been twisted so bad that it looks more like a piece of Fusili, says Paloma Sharma. As what is probably the world's first dance-heist-revenge-musical, Happy New Year has polarised people more than the cola wars could manage. One does not simply like/dislike Happy New Year. One either *loves* it or *hates* it -- and with good reason. While the film is a fun masala entertainer in parts, it is based on a weak script and a weaker logic. Despite some touching ..., 1 month ago

Review: Nightcrawler could crawl its way to the Oscars

It is difficult to find fault with a film so engrossing, notes Paloma Sharma after watching Jake Gyllenhaal starrer Nightcrawler.Writer-director Dan Gilroy takes something as simple as the morning news and peels back the dusty cellophane that was taped to the surface, revealing maggots that feed on the rot inside, in his directorial debut, Nightcrawler. Louis, a skilled thief, desperately wants to leave behind his faceless, stagnant existence and find himself a job somewhere (read: anywhere) ...

Review: Nothing to Roar about!

You'd be naive to go into this one looking for top grade acting or direction, says Paloma Sharma. A wildlife photographer on an assignment in the Sunderbans finds a white tiger cub caught in a poacher's trap. In order to protect the cub, he takes it back to his residence in the nearby village only to face strong opposition from his guide Madhu (Pranay Dixit) and the rest of the villagers. The photographer Uday (Pulkit Jawahar) is warned of dire consequences by the superstitious villagers but ...

3 Ways To Be A Super Spy!

Bang Bang, at its core, is really an educational film, informs Paloma Sharma. While cinema enthusiasts are trying to decode the title and the fashion police are issuing an arrest warrant for the makeup artist, Siddharth Anand's Bang Bang is busy raking in money at the box office.  Since art is open to interpretation, people have viewed Bang Bang in different lights all across the demographic.  Some see it as the official remake of Knight And Day, others see it ...

Review: The Judge is K3G for Americans

The Judge formulaic but never mechanical, says Paloma Sharma. David Dobkin's new film sees Robert Downey Jr play a version of Tony Stark who, only this time he fights enemies with the aid of mind games and laws. Downey Jr does that voodoo that he do so well, one that we've become so accustomed to that we're not even going to complain about him giving Shah Rukh Khan's many Rahuls a run for their money. Downey Jr's Hank Palmer is basically Harvey Specter on Ecstasy and will do whatever it takes, ...

Review: What If fails to leave an impression

What If has its moments but doesn't really shine through in entirety, says Paloma Sharma.Alternatively titled The 'F' Word, Michael Dowse's What If has an undeniable film festival feel to it. Based on the play Toothpaste and Cigars, What If follows the lives of Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) and Chantry (Zoe Kazan), and their friends, as they navigate through the ever-changing maze of life, romance and the almost unanswerable question -- can men and women really just be friends? After being cheated ...

Review: No Spark in this film

Spark's title, like everything else about it, is random, rants Paloma Sharma. Once upon a time, in the fair land of Germany, there was a strapping young lad from India called Arjun (Rajneesh Duggal), who delivered boxes from a mini van, drank videsi daaru, wore well fitting blazers and drove the best of cars. Back in India, there was a local political goon, Babu Lal, who pulled his own version of the Amityville Massacre. In Delhi, sits Babu Lal's former boss whose father left his mother ...

Review: Save yourself from Left Behind!

Left Behind is a film you need to leave behind, warns Paloma Sharma. People disappearing has never been an unfamiliar subject for cinema. Neither has redemption. But when you add religion to that, you get a completely new concept that has only been known to human kind for, oh, let's say, some 3,000 years? Nicholas Cage plays Captain Steele, a skeptic pilot who is on the verge of having an affair with a young blonde flight attendant since his wife becomes increasingly religious over the ...

Review: Annabelle is a bit of a drag

Coming from the makers of The Conjuring, its spin-off Annabelle pales in comparison, says Paloma Sharma.Annabelle opens with a trio of nursing students talking into a handy cam, as they share the story (as told to them by a psychic) of the weird redhead doll sitting next to them on a chair, wearing the satisfied expression of a lunatic on LSD.The film then goes into flashback to a year ago, when TV still had antennae you needed to adjust, to a couple who are expecting a child. Miya ...

'Bappa will be back in another 365 days, na?'

Paloma Sharma/ discovers a group of murti (idol) sellers in Mumbai for whom life comes to a halt with visarjan (immersion).     Past the garish posters of political parties and the patches of lush greenery that threaten to collide with the asphalt, a few metres ahead of Kurar village in Kandivali east (north Mumbai), a long line of tents have suddenly disappeared. The few that are still standing are in the process of wrapping up their wares and vanishing as abruptly as they ...
