Review: Drishyam is a depressingly ordinary film

Several parts of Drishyam work but the film is more tackiness than craft, says Raja Sen. Some movies appear on our viewing doorstep carrying far too much baggage. Drishyam, for instance, is a Hindi remake of a Malayalam film of the same name made into several languages with leading men of exceptional pedigree, and which has also, I believe, stolen its set-up from a Japanese mystery thriller, The Devotion Of Suspect X. That’s an awful lot of suitcases all right. As with too-eager ... Rediff.com, 1 hour ago

Trailer: Pancholi's son and Shetty's daughter get unimaginative launch

Hero is the most hackneyed of trailers that doesn’t try to break clutter or do anything at all new, says Raja Sen. Hindi cinema today is made up of second-generation superstars. But unlike back in the day when only bonafide superstars could really launch their kids, now any sort of familiar last name is enough to guarantee an entry to the big table. This is a world where David Dhawan’s son and Shakti Kapoor’s daughter are legitimately awesome, and thus here we have another two ...

What do you think of the Spectre trailer versus the other Bond trailers Daniel Craig has featured in? Please check them out below and vote for the one you think rocks! Spectre Directed by Sam Mendes and co-starring Oscar winner Christoph Waltz and Monica Bellucci (at 50, the oldest Bond girl ever! But whaaaat a ...

Review: Ant-Man is little-league fun

Ant-Man is a pretty watchable light movie, but ah, it could have been a Wright movie., says Raja Sen. Some superheroes have the same problems we do. The tiny Ant-Man and his equally puny adversary, Yellowjacket, rattle around waging war locked inside a briefcase and one of them trampolines against an iPhone’s home-button while saying the words “I’m going to disintegrate you.” Siri, confounding in that sweet, untimely way of hers, decides to obey an unsaid command ...

Review: Masaan is a truly impressive directorial debut

Masaan is an immense achievement for a first-time filmmaker and must be applauded, says Raja Sen.(Full disclosure: Masaan is produced by Drishyam Films and they are the people producing Raja Sen's directorial debut, X, as well.) It’s devastatingly hard to crush a skull. For all its lifelong fragility, the human skull is a significantly tough nut, which is why crematoriums have assistants on call to shove a stick into a pyre and ram it through what once was head, breaking it down so ...

Trailer: Shah Rukh turns up the intensity with Raees

Rahul Dholakia's Eid 2016 offering is definitely looking intriguing, says Raja Sen. We don’t know much about Raees, next summer’s intriguingly titled Shah Rukh Khan release, but the picture is beginning to emerge. A poster was released yesterday and now the teaser is out, and it seems a bit like Deewar meets Guru -- while wearing soorma.The teaser opens with the rumbling of various alcohol bottles rolling down a street, as if a barman-bankrupting accident has led a crate ...

Trailer Watch: Bajirao Mastani makes its actors look WOW

Bajirao Mastani is a big winter release worth looking forward to, says Raja Sen. Give Sanjay Leela Bhansali swords and sandals and what do you get? A giant film that looks utterly besotted with itself. Bajirao Mastani, a period drama based on the real-life Maratha chieftain Bajirao and his swashbuckling wife Mastani, is looking grand and opulent and rich, and the first trailer amps up both the drama and the action, while making its actors look very good indeed. Mission accomplished, ...

Review: Fine actors make Guddu Rangeela work

Yet, Guddu Rangeela never quite soars, says Raja Sen. Guddu was a stupid Shah Rukh Khan film, Rangeela was a terrific Aamir Khan film. Subhash Kapoor’s Guddu Rangeela might have nothing to do with the Khans or their 1990s films, and yet it falls, fittingly enough, halfway between a really fun ride and a film that goes nowhere. It has an intricate, interesting plot and a set of fine actors visibly having a good time, but it lacks finesse and consistency. Still, thanks to the ...

Bollywood's half-yearly report card: The good stuff

Raja Sen looks back at the good things that happened in Bollywood in the first half of 2015.  Half of 2015 has flown by, and it’s a good time to take stock of Hindi cinema and its latest shenanigans. Today, I’ll focus on the good stuff, the films and performers that have impressed us in these last six months -- while keeping the red pen ready for tomorrow’s more ominous installment of the report card. The Best Films Piku: Without a doubt, this is the A+. Shoojit ...

Bobby's Jindals: The family back in Malerkotla

In October 2007 Raja Sen visited Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal’s village in Punjab to find out how its residents, and relatives, feel about their oddest export. His report was published in India Abroad, a weekly newspaper published in the US and owned by Rediff.com. With Jindal announcing his bid for the 2016 US presidential elections, becoming the first person of Indian-American heritage to run for that country's top post, we reproduce the article. If a town is ...
