Review: Saif and Katrina make Phantom a joke

Stay away from Phantom; it gives audiences a raw deal, cautions Raja Sen. Old jungle saying: cast a film well. There is a lot that a film-going audience can forgive in a production -- from continuity errors to script flaws, from incoherent cinematography to weak plots.But one of the hardest to overlook is when the filmmakers pick the wrong people for the principal parts. Truly remarkable lead actors are magic -- they salvage a bad film or shoulder a good one, and shine even when the ... Rediff.com, 6 days ago

Review: The Man From UNCLE is a superbly stylish romp

The Man From UNCLE is as lovingly tailored as they come, says Raja Sen. Has there ever been a name as American as Armie Hammer? It is a cartoonish name with inbuilt stars and stripes, the sort of name that insists on a father named Jack and a son called Sledge, a name that behooves a pro-wrestler, a porn-star or a GI Joe action figure. As an actor, the blonde, light-eyed Californian is unsurprisingly remembered from solidly American parts, like that of a cowboy or a moneyed Harvard ...

Review: The Gift is a finely made psychological chiller

The Gift is much more than a boilerplate Hollywood horror film, says Raja Sen. There is much that can make a gift special. The contents. The occasion. The giver. The thought that, we're repeatedly assured, does count. The wrapping paper. The inscription. All of these things, in their own grand and intangible ways, matter a great deal to the overall experience of receiving a gift, and actor- turned-director Joel Edgerton seizes upon all of these rather skilfully in his directorial debut. The ...

Trailer review: Singh is Bliing lacks the punch

Raja Sen is not happy with the new Singh is Bliing trailer. Look, I quite dug Singh Is Kinng. It was ridiculous and loud and inane but Akshay Kumar -- at the height of his powers as an entertainer -- carried it off with the kind of zany flair Amitabh Bachchan showed in campy movies back in the 1980s, and Kumar alone made it work. I freakin' had a blast. That was seven years ago. Kumar has meanwhile proven himself watchable even in bad movies, but the new Prabudheva film Singh Is ...

Why Jai is the true hero of Sholay

Raja Sen gives us a hint: It was all because he used a coin wisely. IMAGE: Veeru and Jai in Sholay. It is temptingly easy to dismiss the cinematic coin-toss as a bit of chicanery, just another convenient plotting trope. Characters go down one road when they so easily could have strolled down another, and the road they choose is the one picked by the writers, with heads or tails (or neither) doing the rationalising for them. Yet there is something classically timeless about relying on ...

Review: Brothers is so bad it should be disqualified

Brothers is loud, over-the-top and an exhausting watch, says Raja Sen. If the number of crucifixes in a film signify how pious it is, Brothers must have been shot in the Vatican. The characters -- a Fernandes family from Mumbai -- are Catholics, it is established early on, but director Karan Malhotra keeps labouring the point home -- all the characters wear crucifixes around their necks, walk out of churches in slow-motion, have Jesus tattooed on their biceps, do a Hail Mary before getting ...

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 ...

Review: Mission Impossible 5 is a slick, stylish blast

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation might not be as iconic, but it is genuinely compelling, says Raja Sen. That Tom Hollander, he’s come a long way. Back in 2009’s brilliant In The Loop, Hollander played the dumbfounded Simon Foster, a Secretary Of State of some kind and a smalltime MP. Now, in Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation -- the fifth film keeping that inflammable Lalo Schifrin theme-tune from the sixties still hot -- Hollander has flown up the ...
