Review: Saala Khadoos is All Growl, No Punch!

Review: Saala Khadoos is All Growl, No Punch!

Saala Khadoos fails to produce a spirit that stirs and soars in equal measure, feels Sukanya Verma. Sports dramas offer very little surprises. Stories about athletes, real or fictional, are frequently a predictable package of an underdog’s troubles and triumphs. Like a minute into its first scene -- a young boxer crumbles to her opponent’s severe battering, a disheveled tracksuit-clad man storms in last minute hoping to make essential eye contact from the side-lines before the ..., 1 week ago

Magnificent 7: Most Memorable Characters, 2015

'Of the countless protagonists I encountered at the movies in 2015,' says Sukanya Verma, 'these seven are enduringly unique and notable. They possess that extra something that's not always on paper but earns distinction on the silver screen.' Every year around this time, I sit in front of my computer and reflect over the films I have watched and written about and rank them in my Best and Worst lists. (It's an entirely pleasurable exercise if you reconcile to the fact that a LOT of people may ...

Review: Watch Angry Indian Goddesses for its terrific leading ladies

It's so good to see a film that revels in womanhood, says Sukanya Verma. Being a woman is an experience so diverse in its challenges and charms, her narrative cannot stay confined to one story.  Pan Nalin's refreshingly freewheeling Angry Indian Goddesses picks a whole bunch to capture her highs and lows while pointing out the discrimination she tolerates/fights on regular basis.  A crisp prelude offers a glimpse into their daily battles and outbursts relating to gender bias and ...

Box Office: Ghayal Once Again gets poor response

The hits and misses of the week. Sunny Deol's Ghayal Once Again failed to live up to the 1990 original. The other release of the week -- Sanam Teri Kasam -- paid a heavy price for being an old fashioned, cliched film.  Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the latest box office verdict. Ghayal Once Again Cast: Sunny Deol, Soha Ali Khan, Om Puri, Narendra Jha. Director: Sunny Deol. What works: Sunny Deol. What doesn't: Old fashioned story, haywire second half! ...

Box office: Airlift gets a good opening

The hits and misses of the week. The box office collections for Akshay Kumar's Airlift picked up over the weekend, thanks to its good reviews and positive word-of-mouth. With a public holiday coming up on Republic Day, this film is on its way to become a hit. Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 had an average weekend, as the film caters to a limited audience. Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the latest box office verdict. Airlift Cast: Akshay Kumar, Nimrit Kaur, Feryna Wazheir ...

Review: Airlift is taut, tense, terrific!

'Oh what a beauty Akshay's performance is. Old-school gallantry, contemporary tone, his measured delivery is the soul of and saviour in Airlift,' says Sukanya Verma. What will he do? It's seldom a question that worries me any time I witness the Hindi film hero in action. Nothing I don't know -- this archetype has an endless stock of dishoom dishooms, divine interventions or dramatic means to fall on. But while watching Raja Krishna Menon's riveting Airlift, I found myself asking, 'What will he ...

Salman Khan's BEST dialogues!

Salman's most superhit, swaggering dialogues. Experiencing a Salman Khan release in theatre is often even more fun than the movie itself. Here's why: He makes an entry. Audience applauds. He takes off his shirt. Audience whistles. He tosses a goon in air. Audience applauds He says his punch line. Audience goes bananas. And there are quite a few of those. As the actor turns 50, we celebrate his stardom and style by recalling his most superhit, swaggering dialogues. Add your own ...

The Top 10 HITS of 2015

Bajrangi Bhaijaan was Bollywood's biggest hit this year. The year 2015 hasn't seen too many Rs 100 crore grossers; only four films -- two of which are running in the theatres -- have managed to achieve this feat so far. The good news is that one movie crossed the Rs 300 crore mark and one made it to the Rs 200 crore club. Both, unsurprisingly, have one thing in common -- Salman Khan. Other than Salman, it has primarily been an Akshay Kumar year with three of his films making it to the Top ...

Review: Bajirao Mastani is Magnificent. Fragile. Flawed.

'Talwar se zyada dhaar chalane wale ki soch mein honi chahiye,' says the strategy-savvy Bajirao in Bajirao Mastani. Only if director Sanjay Leela Bansali had listened, says Sukanya Verma. The challenge in telling a story that's from a different era stems from lack of familiarity but its mastery lies in recognising the enormous potential to re-imagine. Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known to paint the screen with his envisaged imagery that's meticulously opulent and furiously dramatic. He ...
