Why Raja Sen thought Prince was The Joker

Why Raja Sen thought Prince was The Joker

Prince, remembers Raja Sen, snuck his way into an underage brain and sparked off deliciously inappropriate thoughts in style. When I was eight years old, I thought Prince was The Joker. Allow me to explain this childhood delusion. The year was 1989. Tim Burton's glorious and groundbreaking Batman movie was yet to hit our VHS libraries, and this was a time before teaser trailers and trailers teasing teaser trailers. All we had to go on with, before watching Jack Nicholson own the character, was ..., 2 days ago

Review: Fan is a brilliant film with SRK at his best

Take a bow, Shah Rukh Khan, raves Raja Sen. Who could do this film but Shah Rukh Khan? Conceptually, the basic idea propelling the narrative of Maneesh Sharma’s Fan appears deceptively simple -- that of an obsessive fan, a bit of a cross between Misery and The King Of Comedy -- and, judged from the surface, this film works like a slickly efficient Darr homage. Yet, behind the thriller-movie makeup it wears, there is so much more to Fan, a film ...

Trailer Review: Emraan's Azhar is tacky

Emraan Hashmi doesn’t look anything like Azhar, feels Raja Sen. Once upon a time in tackystan... Look, I never had high expectation from Tony D’Souza’s biopic of Mohammad Azharuddin -- well, because Tony D’Souza is the guy who made Blue. Also, leading man Emraan Hashmi doesn’t look anything like Azhar. The teaser itself looked awful, but now that lack of resemblance is all the more pronounced with the first official trailer out. My first reaction? Is this a Manoj ...

Trailer: Sachin Tendulkar, coming soon to a theatre near you

Raja Sen has just watched the teaser of Sachin: A Billion Dreams a few times over, and he can't stop grinning. I have always believed the great Sachin Tendulkar would make a lousy subject for a sporting biopic. As I wrote in a column (external link) on the day he'd scored his 50th Test hundred, Tendulkar's is a story far too good to be true, and biopics are made of blemishes and flaws, not utter peerlessness. That said, I've watched the just released teaser for Sachin: A Billion ...

Review: The Jungle Book is an instant classic

Take the kids you know (and the kid within you) and go watch The Jungle Book, Raja Sen advises. This isn’t your daddy’s Jungle Book. That applies whether I’m your daddy’s age and grew up on an oft-looped VHS tape of Disney’s 1967 animated classic, or if you’re my dad’s age and cherished the leather bound Rudyard Kipling book which promised darker truths -- though I choose to believe that The Bare Necessities may well be as deep as life ...

The Critic Versus The Fanboy: Debating Batman vs Superman

Raja Sen hated Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and debates his reasons with Satyajit Chetri, who totally loved it. IMAGE: Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. If you've read my review of Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice, you know where I stand. I called the film the worst superhero movie of all time, and while some people have since objected -- mostly by bringing up clunkers like last year's sickening Fantastic Four reboot and the wasted Green Lantern -- ...

MS Dhoni teaser: Sushant shows us a Dhoni we've never seen

Sushant looks great in character, thoughtful, sharp and focused even in this teensy glimpse, notes Raja Sen. Mahender Singh Dhoni only brought out the helicopter shot when India most needed it -- and so it isn't what you're going to see in the highly intriguing teaser for Neeraj Pandey's MS Dhoni. Instead, what we do see, is Sushant Singh Rajput working as a ticket collector on the South Eastern railway. He's given his starting orders and the man sincerely steps to it, making his way amid a ...

Why we should be glad Mad Max didn't win the Oscar for Best Picture

For starters, Mad Max: Fury Road is gloriously nuts, says Raja Sen. IMAGE: A still from Mad Max: Fury Road What is better than winning Best Picture? It sounds bonkers, I grant you, yet hear me out. At the Oscars, being on the inside of the Best Picture envelope isn't as golden as it gets. The ultimate prize, the real ultimate prize, is being the film everyone roots for to be inside said envelope -- and then not showing up. Not breasting the tape. Not being Best Picture, but instead ...

Review: Zubaan is a boring little film

Zubaan emerges, sadly, like one of those ads where you can half-hum the song but you forget what it was for, feels Raja Sen. Zubaan begins with a young Sikh boy, a very well-cast lad who looks like he’s itching to turn into Vicky Kaushal -- who we know from Masaan and have seen all over the posters for this new film -- as soon as he grows up. This growing up, alas, happens way too quickly, and we’re taken from a potentially fascinating and far more compelling backstory -- about a ...

The 10 Most Unforgettable Moments from the 2016 Oscars

Raja Sen lists his favourite moments. I once had the remarkable good fortune to be sitting unexpectedly in the Comedy Cellar in New York when a surprise guest was thrust upon us. The audience couldn't believe it, and out strolled Chris Rock -- an incendiary performer and giant comic superstar -- who slayed. He was great and we were enraptured, and, this morning, Rock knocked the wind outta me from many timezones away, by the way he opened the 88th Annual Academy Awards. Featuring that ...
