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, ... Rediff.com, 3 days ago

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 ...

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: 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 ...

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 ...

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

Paloma Sharma/Rediff.com 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 ...

Band, Baaja, Bappa: It's a grand farewell party

People from all over Maharashtra come to watch the Shivgarjana dhol-tasha band in action. Paloma Sharma/Rediff.com find out why. As is habitual of fireworks during the festival season, one suddenly goes off somewhere on the busy street, in the middle of the day, sending hundreds of pigeons fleeing for the sky. There are so many of them that they could block the sun, and while this may seem like a wondrous phenomenon to one who is witnessing it for the first time, it is part of everyday life for ...

Review: Hercules works because of The Rock!

Hercules has its moments, says Paloma Sharma.From the maker of Mirror, Mirror and Rush Hour, Hercules tells a tale that we've heard once before this year with The Legend of Hercules, but with a thankfully refreshing twist. There is no way to speak of the phenomenon that is Hercules (2014) except by way of comparison. While Hercules, the hero, might be part-mortal, part-God, Hercules, the film, is surely part-The Scorpion King, part-Gladiator, part-Troy and part-The Expendables. Instead of going ...

7 reasons why people cheat on their partners

Infidelity is the cause for most marriages to break. Paloma Sharma finds out just why it is that people stray. Till death do us apart, or equivalent vows of fidelity in Indian marriage ceremonies, don't seem to hold as strong as they once did. Dr Archana Jambusaria, psychologist and hypnotherapist, attributes most marital breakdowns to infidelity. In a recent study conducted by Mumbai-based marriage counsellor, Dr Sanjoy Mukerji, 40 per cent of the 500 couples who participated in his survey ...
