Funnier than Aishwarya's lips: The week in the movies

Sukanya Verma shares her exciting filmi week with us. I am in Delhi these days. Delhi, most months, is not an easy city to live in but in May it's just impossible. When not cursing the unbearable heat and the scalding hot water that, as a consequence, flows from the tap, I find relief in, what else, movies. Here's the lowdown on my super-filmi week. Monday   IMAGE: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan attends the From The Land Of The Moon premiere at Cannes. Photograph: Pascal Le ... Rediff.com, 5 days ago

Sarbjit review: Weepy, wasted opportunity!

Aishwarya’s efforts to look and sound the part show. But not in a way that helps the movie, feels Sukanya Verma. Omung Kumar’s access to inspiring individuals is the only noteworthy aspect of his filmmaking. After squandering an opportunity with the biopic on boxing champion Mary Kom, he returns to chronicle the long struggle to bring justice to Sarabjit Singh by his sister, Dalbir Kaur in the weepy, wasted premise of Sarbjit sans the Kumar’s cosmetic sensitivity and overblown ...

Dear Dad review: Arvind Swamy is delightful but...

...Dear Dad is disappointingly skin deep, feels Sukanya Verma. Long drives and uncomfortable silences don’t bode well. Especially when a father is trying to make conversation with his 14-year old son who’s too immersed playing Clash of Clans on his Nintendo or texting his pals to notice.  There’s more to this purported small talk that skims through cricket and cheat codes and finds things of amusement in the generation difference. In Dear Dad, Tanuj Bhramar’s ...

Traffic Review: Bumpy ride to half-hearted glory

Traffic is muddled and lacklustre in its set-up, feels Sukanya Verma. In Traffic, practicality and sentiment not only co-exist but collaborate to fulfill a higher purpose of saving lives. Through its multiple narrative threads that convene at a crucial juncture in the vein of Alejandro González Iñárritu’s 21 Grams and Amores Perros, director Rajesh Pillai, who passed away due to a liver ailment in February, aspires to tell a human story with elements of ...

Of clashing superheroes and crying Khans!

Superheroes, Holi, apples and other happenings from Sukanya Verma's super filmi week! Witnessing superhero face-offs on big screen and small, cheering for Team India at ICC World T20 with an arsenal of movie gifs and hosting a crying contest between Bollywood's Khan triumvirate, my super filmi week sure kept me both entertained and occupied. Monday A casual conversation with the husband about sandwiches brings up actor/filmmaker Jon Favreau's Chef. Within seconds, I am mentally drooling ...

Ranbir's forgotten romance in Bachna Ae Haseeno

Sukanya Verma shares her nostalgic filmi week with us. From recalling my favourite moments in cricket in the enthusiastic vein of Amitabh Bachchan (think Namak Halal) and Aamir Khan (think Andaz Apna Apna) to revisiting Mowgli’s jungle in all its live-action glory, my super filmi week teemed with nostalgia. Monday It’s neither a profound script nor a massive success but delivers just about enough verve to make for dinnertime fluff. I am watching Bachna Ae Haseeno. Not ...

Review: The Jungle Book brings happiness, nostalgia and many other emotions!

Relive your childhood or enrich your kid’s but revisit The Jungle Book you must, stresses Sukanya Verma. Watching Disney’s live-action take on Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is bound to evoke a myriad of sentiments among anyone whose childhood has imprints of Mowgli and gang. But for first timers too, it’s a treat they simply cannot afford to miss.    It’s the sort of spectacle where your senses savour in the details for as long as it lasts ...

Review: Kapoor & Sons is an absorbing layered family drama

What’s eating the Kapoors? Sukanya Verma gives you some answers. If it’s not complicated, it’s probably not real.  For families fight, they get on each other’s nerves and, sometimes, they let each other down too. It’s why we cherish photographs; they’re an ideal version of us, where in that one fleeting moment we forget all our differences and unite to say cheese.  A journey into that one moment is Shakun Batra’s absorbing, impassioned and ...

Jai GangaaJal: Not enough PC power!

Priyanka Chopra plays second fiddle to Prakash Jha in this tedious cop drama, says Sukanya Verma. Whenever a woman plays a cop in our movies, she’s either trying to prove her worth with an unsmiling disposition or failing it by posturing in a figure hugging uniform. One seldom sees the space between heroic and heroine.  Priyanka Chopra’s Superintendent of Police Abha Mathur in Jai GangaaJal isn’t above glamour but there’s something humane in her method. She’s ...

Review: Naseer-Kalki's Waiting is absolutely riveting!

Anu Menon’s true triumph lies in how she doesn’t vilify a profession or its uncomfortable reality to gather empathy for her characters, says Sukanya Verma. In times of inconsolable grief, comfort is a luxury not everyone can offer. Misery craves company not isolation but from someone who suffers exactly like you do, instead of well-meaning but empty solace. Director Anu Menon’s Waiting, a tender tale of love and letting go, recognises this largely neglected sentiment and ...
