Independence Day: Resurgence review: Done to death vision!

One sees a lot more of the aliens in this edition though not necessarily in a good way, wites Sukanya Verma. When Bill Pullman famously predicted, 'We're going to live on' in his climatic speech as the president of United States, he wasn't only referring to the indomitable American spirit but Hollywood's fixation with franchise filmmaking. Having said that, Independence Day did enjoy a 20-year long standalone identity before director Roland Emmerich decided to thrust a completely inessential ... Rediff.com, 3 days ago

Udta Punjab, worst casting decisions, and naheeee...!

Sukanya Verma shares her exciting filmi week with us. It's like Audrey Hepburn said, 'Everything I learned, I learned from the movies.' I wouldn't go that far but every film, good or ghastly, brings it share of wisdom and warning. Here is my learning from this week. Monday It's possible to feel differently about a movie when revisiting it after a long gap. Some movies age badly or lose relevance or simply cease to hold the same charm as they once did in our memory. Conversely, sometimes we ...

Review: Te3n falls short of being a satisfying suspense!

In its preoccupation to collect details, Te3n flounders on motive, says Sukanya Verma. At what pace a story wants to unravel is entirely the storyteller's prerogative -- some narratives speak in poetic pauses and cryptic musings; others succeed on a throbbing tempo. In Ribhu Dasgupta's Te3n, the leisurely movement isn't so much to examine the scene of a crime as it is to document the accumulation of evidence. It would be effective too if the film wasn't so willfully minimising its drama and ...

Housefull 3 review: I survived. Will you?

Sukanya Verma has 10 reasons why you should watch Housefull 3. Ritesh Deshmukh can see. Abhishek Bachchan can talk. Akshay Kumar can walk. And I, somehow, survived Housefull 3. That, ladies and gentleman, is the real miracle.  It is my moral duty to ensure you do too by providing you 10 reasons why you cannot afford to miss the third offering in the franchise of the senseless, by the witless, for the brainless.   1. One can't simply turn a blind eye to the enormous effort put in by ...

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 ...

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 ...
