Review: Saif is a hoot in Kaalakaandi

Saif ensures he doesn't seem like a gimmick in the film, notes Sukanya Verma. 'I am a good person you know,' laments Saif Ali Khan's character on learning he's dying from stomach cancer as if his propriety was supposed to be some kind of coverage from life-threatening conditions. The only silver lining to it is that he's now free to do as he wills. With prescription drugs of no use anymore, he promptly proceeds to pop a hallucinogenic pill, one that looks more like a star-shaped cupcake candy, ... Rediff.com, 1 week ago

10 Amazing Films of 2017

Find out which films make it to Sukanya Verma's Top 10 of the year. When one is constantly writing about films, there's a danger of slipping into tedium. And so it's reassuring how every year, regardless of buzz or box office, some measure of brilliance makes the grade and renews one's faith in the agency of cinema. Businesswise, it wasn't a profitable year for Hindi movies, but to say it was devoid of creativity would be undermining the efforts of those astute film-makers whose artistry ...

Review: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is FUN!

The new Jumanji can easily be enjoyed by those unfamiliar with the original, feels Sukanya Verma. Like any other 1990s kid, I lapped up Jumanji's destruction and adamant wildlife creating a relentless atmosphere of urgency and danger. Around this dark board game, played by kids and kids who look like grown-ups, the stakes felt high and events inspired novelty. Back then, the SFX boom was kicking in and its star Robin Williams not only had a ball with technology but also lent it heart and ...

Guess who turned 80!

Sukanya Verma celebrates the timeless magic of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on its 80th anniversary. Children are a pure audience. They grab on to the simplest of suggestions and turn them into fanciful ideas in their head. Part of such precious wonderment comes from a wholehearted belief that the fantasy unfolding before their eyes is real. It's not gullibility. It's faith. For as long as we hold on to this sentiment, we retain some of our innocence.   Walt Disney, pioneer of the ...

Bollywood's BEST Songs of 2017

Sukanya Verma lists her top 15 songs of the year. At the risk of sounding like one of those perennially discontent oldies frowning upon all things new, I will admit that the Hindi film music scene is not what it used to be. There was a time when even the most banal Bollywood movie boasted of catchy compositions. Nowadays, it's mainly about excessively digital sounds or remixing classics. Given the scenario, 2017 was surprisingly decent. Songs of soul, sensitivity and spunk popped up more ...

Review: Star Wars: The Last Jedi is glorious

You don't have to be a Star Wars nerd to enjoy its poignant pursuit of virtue, feels Sukanya Verma. In its 40th year now, the Star Wars legacy is the most iconic outcome of George Lucas' vision of an intergalactic spectacle around good versus evil. But it's the moral dilemmas, familial discords and a host of memorable characters and creatures, their peculiar skills, sounds and traits that immortalises its legend and longevity. Inarguably the most recognised and revered brand in cinematic ...

Bollywood's WORST Dance Moves of 2017

We've seen some cool dance moves this year, says Sukanya Verma. And then, we've seen these! Alia Bhatt pulled off a dance number immortalised by Madhuri Dixit in Badrinath Ki Dulhania. Ranbir Kapoor sliced a cake perched on a man's butt pleading Galti Se Mistake in Jagga Jasoos. Aamir Khan's deliberate raunchiness in Secret Superstar's Sexy Baliye achieved desired results. And Govinda sleep danced his way through the terrible, terrible Aa Gaya Hero. If verve and versatility lend these madcap ...

Anushka-Virat's romantic album of memories

Sukanya Verma glances at Virushka's photo album of loveliness. When two of cricket and showbiz's self-made stars decide to marry, there's bound to be much excitement. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma's romance has the magic of love at first sight, the drama of wicked twists and unkind obstacles and the magnificence of a triumphant happily-ever-after. Quite an album of memories.   Two to tango! The duo hit it off while filming an anti-dandruff shampoo commercial in 2013. Frequent sightings ...

Fukrey Returns Review: A silly endeavour to milk a fluke

Fukrey Returns is a clumsily conceived sequel, notes Sukanya Verma. When director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba's Fukrey released in 2013, it was mildly amusing on the strength of its loony bamboozling and goofy chemistry of believable bums belonging to a bourgeois Delhi neighbourhood.   Roping in its cast for a reunion with no plot or charm is stretching the joke too far. Unfortunately, that's how Fukrey Returns feels -- a clumsily conceived sequel, a foolhardy endeavour to milk a fluke, an ...
