Review: Dear Zindagi is a wonderful, self-assured gem

Review: Dear Zindagi is a wonderful, self-assured gem

Alia Bhatt continues to impress while Shah Rukh Khan takes it easy in this lovely, thoughtful little film, applauds Raja Sen. The intermission is a nightmare. This is true for the format in which Hindi cinema is traditionally exhibited, as the interruption creates a narrative chasm that messes up both filmgoer and filmmaker, but it is doubly true for Dear Zindagi, which ingeniously uses a bad dream to slap recess upon us and allow us out of the theatre. While the heroine lies awake in bed, ..., 1 week ago

Review: Don't be forced to watch Force 2

Despite some efficiency, Force 2 is never impressive, says Raja Sen. The problem with making a slick action movie is that it has to be slick enough. That is all the genre demands and it is, quite frankly, a tall order. We yawn at Bourne movies now, for God’s sake. After watching Keanu Reeves amid the gorgeous artisanal beauty of John Wick, we’d steer clear of anything with Vin Diesel in it. We aren’t tolerant of old action movies -- the genre gets dated quicker than most -- ...

Review: Rock On 2, unnecessary forgettable sequel

Rock On 2 is mediocre, warns Raja Sen. When Farhan Akhtar sees a fire, he glares at it. In Shujaat Saudagar's Rock On 2, Akhtar enters a burning building in an attempt to rescue people, but wherever he sees flaming embers, his response is to glower at them. (This technique isn't as effective as the leading man wishes, and the entire property is soon scorched to the ground.) Also, if glaring at things would cause them to stop happening, the Rock On 2 screening I was at would have wrapped up ...

Review: Shivaay is an absolute catastrophe

'This Ajay Devgn video game gets more unwatchable with each minute -- and there are 173 of them,' rues Raja Sen. Girish Karnad is in Shivaay. The venerable actor, a luminary of the stage and screen, here plays a wheelchair-bound father asking his daughter to invite a young girl in from the cold. The daughter, fresh off an encounter with the titular chap, Shivaay, is too thunderstruck to really hear him, and so the crippled father, determinedly starts hoisting himself out of the wheelchair, only ...

Review: Inferno is a dreadfully dull affair

Inferno is a yawn, warns Raja Sen. Tom Hanks is not Nicolas Cage. This, for the most part, is a good thing. Academy Award winners both, Hanks and Cage first made their bones with off-kilter comedies where Hanks played the wonderful regular guy gone a bit wonky, while Cage played the wonky guy with just a touch of regular. As they moved into serious cinema and became distinctive actors able to shoulder challenging projects, Hanks grounded himself by excelling in roles demanding verisimilitude ...

Befikre: Most disappointing trailer

It’s hard to muster up excitement for something that looks this inane, feels Raja Sen. Aditya Chopra has returned -- with a film that looks positively moronic. Befikre -- a film about reckless romantics -- stars Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor, and, judging by this first trailer, delights in making a monkey out of them, while constantly asking them to make out. It is one of the year's most disappointing trailers, and judging purely by this, Befikre might be a December release worth ...

Review: Mira Nair's Queen Of Katwe is a ray of inspiration

Queen Of Katwe feels almost like Mira Nair is making a Bollywood film in Africa, notes Raja Sen. Comprehension is a beautiful thing. Cinema wows us by opening our minds to the unexpected and the unimagined, and, in turn, it is special for us viewers to witness a character grow, learn, become more aware. In front of our very eyes. When we get to see the jigsaw pieces of clarity click satisfyingly into place inside a character's mind, these tangible moments of epiphany -- set sometimes to a ...

Review: Bridget Jones's Baby is predictable but pleasant

It all feels like something you’ve seen before. And yet, Raja Sen calls Bridget Jones’s Baby a pleasant experience. How do you solve a problem like Bridget? Thing is, she doesn’t really have a problem. Bridget has loving friends and family, a nice job, and a first name that sounds misleadingly close to that of the greatest of cinematic sex-kittens. And as we know because of the Bridget Jones movies -- and books, by Helen Fielding, she of the stellar literary pedigree and the ...

Review: Baar Baar Dekho is catastrophically stupid

Nothing in Baar Baar Dekho adds up, warns Raja Sen. I wonder if Katrina Kaif is good at poker.  In Baar Baar Dekho, Kaif wears an all-encompassing blankness, looking like a striking but not altogether realistic waxwork. She’s a vision, albeit one whose accent-soaked Hindi -- more unbearable than ever -- gets in the way of possible appreciation, and I wager she’d be an unnerving opponent on a card table, one both stealthy and distracting.   Cast in a film, ...
