'Why is it that we are so forgiving of the glaring problems in grand multi-starrers like Dil Dhadakne Do,' asks Sreehari Nair, 'but when a small film with a truly personal vision seeks our approval, we analyse it through a prism of formal perfection?'

The experience of watching Tamasha presents a profound paradox: the supposedly fun bits in the movie are the driest and the driest bits are the most fun. Sometime before intermission, Ranbir Kapoor’s character Ved arrives at Deepika Padukone’s doorstep to pick her up for a date. This is the moment ...Rediff.com, 4 days ago

'Mistaking carnality for sensuality, X rings as too literal-minded and too talky, with a technique that just about drains any real density or genuine playfulness that may exist beneath all the talk,' says Sreehari Nair. In X: Past is Present, so little happens and yet there's such a concentrated effort to tell you that there's so bloody much happening that the movie turns 'heightened enthusiasm' into a genre in itself. Undershot and over-edited with everything from sound effects to dialogues ...Rediff.com, 1 week ago
'On Air with AIB seems to be becoming an increasingly exhausting show to sit through with each passing episode. While there are funny lines strewn all around, watching an On Air episode is like playing 'one-armed bandit' and getting 'three oranges' every time you put a coin in the slot machine; there's no breather and after a while no sense of wonder.'

'You cannot relate to Titli or Charles, without submitting to the knowledge that neither of them are well-rounded characters; they are more like artifacts -- Charles, a schlock artifact and Titli, an artifact of spirit toughened by years of live brutality,' says Sreehari Nair. 'Randeep Hooda,' says Sreehari Nair, 'is perhaps the Fred Astaire of posture and here as Charles Sobhraj, what the ...Rediff.com, 4 weeks ago
