Review: Lucy is a visual treat

Review: Lucy is a visual treat

  Lucy could have used more action and a better soundtrack, feels Paloma Sharma.   Luc Besson's Lucy attempts to explore the purpose of life and the limits of the human mind. While it isn't the most original concept we've seen on screen in recent years, Besson crafts it into a completely different ball game.   Lucy stars Scarlett Johansson as the titular character and from the moment that the film opens, you know that this is her show (even Morgan Freeman gets ..., 1 month ago

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 ...

Review: Begin Again is heartwarming

Begin Again speaks to the viewer like few films have, says Paloma Sharma.Perhaps it is futile to write this. No words I come up with up could do justice to the truth of Begin Again. Nevertheless, I will will give it my best shot. John Carney's Begin Again stars Mark Ruffalo as Dan Mulligan, co-founder of a record label, who has been fired from his job as an A&R agent for not having signed a new artist in over half a decade. Keira Knightley is Greta, a heartbroken songwriter who is more ...

Review: Amit Sahni Ki List doesn't work

Amit Sahni Ki List falters on many counts, says Paloma Sharma.Five minutes into the film and you just know that Amit Sahni ki List is nothing you've ever seen before for a very simple reason -- although Amit Sahni went to IIT and then IIM, he did not go on to become a best selling author. He did, however, write a list. After having his heart broken by his first girlfriend, Natasha -- she's cheating on him (revealed in a scene eerily similar to the one from Hitch), Amit Sahni draws up a list of ...

Review: A Million Ways to Die in the West is a Vanity Project

A Million Ways To Die In The West could have done better with more editing and less Seth McFarlane, says Paloma Sharma.'From the guy who brought you Ted,' reads the top of the poster.That's just the beginning. You really should stick around for the titles after this one. They speak a lot louder than anything the film itself will ever manage to say. But in case you have to get back to work/get home/run for your life because your survival instincts kick in, let me sum it up for you. A Million ...

5 things college will teach you (& a correspondence course won't)

Your time in college will prepare you for the real world in ways you can never imagine says Paloma Sharma. College has either begun or is about to begin for students all over India and if you're under 21, then I feel ya bruh ;-) For the average student, college is hell, and for the exceptionally talented college is nothing but a waste of time. It is at such moments that the temptation of distance education beckons. It is supposed to be free learning, a space to follow your own dreams. Despite ...

Review: Grace of Monaco doesn't make much sense

Grace of Monaco is a shoddily written film, says Paloma Sharma.Once upon a time, Hollywood's loveliest leading lady Grace Kelly (Nicole Kidman), left behind her way of life to marry Rainier III, Prince of Monaco (Tim Roth) and play (as it is pointed out more than once in the film) the role of a lifetime. Years pass. They have children. But all is not well in the Palace of Monaco. The country is in debt, France wants to annex it and the Prince and the Princess' marriage is sailing through ...

Review: Filmistaan is absolutely flawless

Filmistaan has a strong plot and well-developed characters, says Paloma Sharma.While Gandhiji has been long hailed as the father of the nation, it is CineMaa that is the undisputed mother of not only India but also its neighbouring Pakistan. The much revered CineMaa blesses her devotees with business on both sides of the border, serving as a common thread between the protagonists -- Sunny (Sharib Hashmi) and Aftab (Inaamulhaq) -- in Nitin Kakkar's Filmistaan. Sukhwinder "Sunny" Arora is ...

Review: Dawn of the Planets of the Apes is breathtaking

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes rises above all its predecessors, says Paloma Sharma.First, the simian flu spread. Then the riots happened. If the diseases didn't kill you, the violence will. If not the violence, then the lack of basic amenities. Set almost 10 years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the film sees humans and apes swap places -- where while humans fight extinction, the ape empire only grows. Caesar (Andy Serkis), leader of the apes, rulesover  his subjects ...
