Review: The final Hobbit is a thumping, thrilling success!

Sukanya Verma treasures every bit of this eventful journey called Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.There’s a bit of Gandalf in Peter Jackson.  Not just because he makes magic with CGI but like the wise wizard, the filmmaker follows his reliable instincts and is game for impossible challenges. Such gamble may not lead to consequences as significant as restoring peace in Middle Earth but the epical complexity and meticulous artistry of his Tolkien adaptations, their ...

Review: Zed Plus doesn't insult your intelligence

Zed Plus allows a bunch of talented actors to rise above second rung roles and take centre stage, says Sukanya Verma.Right in the beginning of Zed Plus, director Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi reads out a cheeky disclaimer that claims what we’re about to witness is a work of fiction because it’s impossible such incidents would occur within a democracy. His political parody pokes fun of the government’s absurd distribution of security privileges while facetiously criticising ...

Review: Kill Dil is a disaster!

Kill Dil has random songs, birdbrained logic and a romance that’s about as exciting as toothpaste, says Sukanya Verma. Before I rant, which I absolutely must, let me quickly congratulate Kill Dil for unlocking a whole series of achievements.  Let’s see, wastes Govinda, makes Gunday look like one of the most sorted out movies of the year, and, baap of all blasphemies, squanders Gulzar’s recitation talent around poorly-timed, insipid song picturisations.  Shaad Ali ...

Classic Revisited: Aamir Khan's coming-of-age in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar

Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar masterfully weaves a compelling human story, says Sukanya Verma. I have fond memories of an ice cream parlour I frequented every weekend as a kid. It wasn’t fancy but, back then, it was among the only few places that offered such variety in flavours. And the best part was how the shop owner always gave me a complimentary cornet to chomp on because I enjoyed the crunchy sounds it led to. To me, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992) is just like that ice cream ...

Review: Akshay Kumar is the real scene stealer of The Shaukeens!

So, should you watch The Shaukeens? Here's what Sukanya Verma/Rediff.com says: Why do filmmakers option the rights of a film and then do everything to assert their version has nothing to do with the original to dodge comparisons? This fallacy is not only disappointing but lazy too. I mean, if you are bold enough to touch a realised product, why not acknowledge your enthusiasm for the source or explain the inclination to alter it? Director Abhishek Sharma's The Shaukeens is a retelling of ...

MAMI Diaries: Must Watch Cinema, now playing in Mumbai!

Brilliant cinema at the ongoing Mumbai Film Festival, raves Sukanya Verma. In all its 16 years, this is my first trip to the Mumbai Film Festival. For some reason or another, I always found myself occupied with a professional or personal engagement to make time for what I have discovered to be the sine qua non for all movie buffs. But this year I planned things better and made sure I attend the festival made possible this year by passionate patrons of cinema with mind and money. Day ...

Review: Haider is bewitchingly clever

And it will haunt you long after you've left the theatre, promises Sukanya Verma. By its very virtue, melancholy is a lonely, lingering, tedious and consuming emotional state. It simply cannot be hurried. Except if you persist sympathetically by the side of the man devastated by its grip, the upshot is more heartfelt than ‘words, words, words’ can articulate. In Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider, an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Kashmir's trials are mirrored in ...

Classic Revisited: Bimal Roy's satirical gem, Parakh

In Sukanya Verma's special series re-visiting great Hindi film classics, we look back at 1960's Parakh, starring Sadhana, Motilal, Nazir Hussain and Durga Khote. In a year of opulent dramas like Mughal-E-Azam, Jis Desh Main Ganga Behti Hai, Kohinoor, Barsaat Ki Raat and Chaudhvin Ka Chand, master filmmaker Bimal Roy reiterates the power of simplicity with his 1960 offering Parakh. Seldom mentioned in the same breath as his more eulogised works like Do Bigha Zamin, Devdas, Bandini, Sujata or ...
