Review: Pixels is a complete waste of time

Review: Pixels is a complete waste of time

Pixels could very well be the most unremarkable Hollywood film of the year, says Paloma Sharma. Have you ever wondered what would happen if old video games came to life, tried to destroy the world and Adam Sandler was the only one who could save us? No, neither has anybody else because what a nightmare -- primarily because of its terrifyingly boring nature -- it would be. Secondly, expecting Sandler, who's consistently played a goofball in several romantic comedies, to pick up a gun that shoots ..., 13 hours ago

Review: Aisa Yeh Jahaan is a half-baked attempt

It's hard to root for Aisa Yeh Jahaan despite its beautiful concept, says Paloma Sharma. Biswajeet Bora's directorial debut, Aisa Yeh Jahaan, brings to the silver screen a conversation that we, as a society, have been in desperate need of for a while. Starring Dr Palash Sen and Ira Dubey, Aisa Yeh Jahaan focuses on the human mind, body and soul, and their growing detachment from nature. Props to Bora for attempting a novel theme and Aisa Yeh Jahaan has other merits too, such as being ...

Review: Minions would have been better if it was Minion-sized

Minions could have been a better edited, better directed and a much better written film, says Paloma Sharma. Minions: Cute little capsule-shaped yellow things that speak gibberish and have an obsessive relationship with bananas. Everybody loves them. Even Grumpy Cat doesn't totally despise them. So if the Minions were to star in a film, what could possibly wrong? A lot, apparently. The prequel to Despicable Me, Minions follows the lives of Kevin, Stuart and Bob (and the rest of their tribe) as ...

Review: Amy is a fitting tribute

There’s enough emotion in every single frame to break your heart, Paloma Sharma says after watching Asif Kapadia's documentary Amy. Award-winning British filmmaker Asif Kapadia returns with the team that gave us Senna (2010), with a powerful yet sensitive portrayal of the rise and fall of the late singer-songwriter, Amy Winehouse.Compiled by putting together unreleased home videos, interviews of the late songstress, her friends and family and footage from paparazzi cameras, ...

Review: Bezubaan Ishq is sanskaari Grand Masti

Bezubaan Ishq is pure drivel, warns Paloma Sharma. Debutant writer-director Jashwant Gangnani delivers a cautionary tale of a film that reinforces gender stereotypes through popular culture.Bezubaan Ishq opens like a Balaji serial. A mysterious narrator provides an introduction to the city of London while singing praises of the Gujarati community.Said narrator then goes on to introduce the protagonists with a couplet especially designed for each one of them (Gunda 2.0?) -- Rumjhum (Sneha ...

Review: Spy is an average entertainer

Spy isn't a bad film. But it's only half a good one, says Paloma Sharma. Oh boy. This one's going to be difficult. Paul Feig, brilliant director of equally brilliant films such as Bad Teacher, Bridesmaids and The Heat, tries his hand at action for a change with the Melissa McCarthy-Jason Statham starrer Spy. Entertaining as the action is, Feig and McCarthy break hearts of long time fans with comedy that seems more forced than funny. Spy re-imagines the generic action thriller, questioning ...

Review: Ishqedarriyaan is avoidable

The kindest thing I can say about Ishqedarriyaan is that it is yawn worthy, says Paloma Sharma. IshqedarriyIaan, V K Prakash's next Hindi venture after the 2009 Mithun-Dimple Kapadia starrer Phir Kabhi, is a love triangle so cheesy that you should order a plate of nachos with it. The film, strangely Sparksian in its approach to love and sacrifice, is bound to appeal to a demographic that is more emotional than rational. A simple tale of boy meets girl, girl meets another boy, boy ...

Welcome 2 Karachi? Erm, no thanks

Welcome 2 Karachi is a sad excuse for screen space, says Paloma Sharma. Bright orange titles. Annoyingly loud music. Badly done special effects that are not relevant to the film. And that's just the first five minutes. Welcome 2 Karachi is a sad excuse for screen space that has already been watched by the Hindi moviegoer in the last few years in the form of pretty much any film Bollywood ever made about Pakistan. There was the adorable Tere Bin Laden, the thrilling Phas Gaye Re Obama and ...

Review: Tomorrowland plays it safe

Tomorrowland falls short of greatness it was capable of achieving, says Paloma Sharma. Coming The Incredibles and Ratatouille director Brad Bird, Disney's Tomorrowland is an over two-hour science fiction/adventure film that ends up being more of an exercise in brand building than storytelling. Bird's new directorial after Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol and co-written with Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof, Tomorrowland is all about innovation, optimism and imagination. Well, at least on ...

Like the Quantico trailer? Vote!

Quantico looks like your run-of-the-mill Homeland-esque drama whose only USP is Priyanka Chopra, writes Paloma Sharma. Agent Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) wakes up on a piece of debris that lies in the middle of New York City as a result of 'the most devastating terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11.' She goes on to tell you -- in an accent which doesn't really sound in place -- that she always dreamed of protecting 'our' country. Barely soot-faced and sporting black wedge heeled boots, ...
