Mardaani review: Rani Mukerji plays Liam Neeson!

Faux feminism aside, Mardaani is mostly a middling action thriller, writes Sukanya Verma. 'Jis duniya mein maa-behne rishte nahi gaali hain, uss duniya se maryada ke rishte saare todungi,' screams an eye-catching tagline of Mardaani’s poster.  You’d think there’s a point behind this relatable sentiment? But no, five minutes into the film and Rani Mukerji barges into a goon’s house and hurls a no-holds-barred expletive at the concerned. Sometime later, she cusses at ... Rediff.com, 3 weeks ago

Kick Review: Nawaz steals Salman's thunder

Despite four screenplay writers' and Salman Khan's best efforts, Kick fails to impress, says Sukanya Verma. Never heard a filmmaker say 'Anyone can direct' in the vein of Chef Gusteau's 'Anyone can cook' belief. There's a reason why. Watching Kick, which marks producer Sajid Nadiadwala's debut as director, explains it with brutal honesty. Its star, soul and the reason why anyone should care at all -- Salman Khan has salvaged many a juvenile plots, which appear as though they've been put ...

Robin Williams is forever!

Sukanya Verma pays tribute to Robin Williams, who passed into the ages on August 11. Robin Williams is no more? How can Robin Williams be no more? As the ubiquitous funnyman of Hollywood, he’d made me laugh so much, so hard and so often. But today when I woke up to the cruel realisation of his passing away, I keep wondering why and how. It’s simply too unexpected, an inevitability I never deemed possible. For a kid growing up in the 1990s, Robin Williams is an unforgettable ...

Review: Finding Fanny, discovering brilliance

Finding Fanny is a fine blend of soulful musings and nuanced filmmaking, feels Sukanya Verma. Finding Fanny opens to the sound of a loud sob and barking dogs.   Somewhere in fictitious Pocolim of real Goa, an old postmaster Ferdie (Naseeruddin Shah) is wailing like a baby because he’s discovered a 46-year-old proposal he wrote to ladylove Fanny (Anjali Patil) slipped underneath his door. Regretfully, it never reached her.  One never grows old enough to stop feeling the ...

Review: Mary Kom is a mediocre account of a magnificent reality

'I would have liked if the film didn't so shamelessly exploit my patriotic sentiments to afford it respect in its final scene''I would have liked something much more than this mediocre account of a magnificent reality'Sukanya Verma returns underwhelmed by  Mary Kom.Look at it from any angle and it's an inspiring story of an individual overcoming a series of odds to triumph. Hailing from an underprivileged background of India's most neglected regions, wanting to excel in a sport considered ...

Singham Returns offers quite a bit to whistle

Singham Returns offers quite a bit to whistle about with its steady supply of straightforward action and a hot-headed hero who delivers a punch with a fist and a line, writes Sukanya VermaAt some point, super cop Bajirao Singham takes off his shirt and smacks it on the chief minister’s palm.That’s a Rohit Shettyism for resignation.Without a second thought, his superior and subordinates in the room, building, neighbourhood and entire Mumbai city follow suit.That’s a Rohit ...

Review: Entertainment is a comical farce

Entertainment is best when it isn’t trying to force laughs out of us with its desperate attempts at wit, says Sukanya Verma. Akshay Kumar’s new movie, Entertainment revolves around a multimillionaire golden retriever of the same name and endorses Vidya Balan’s opinion of movies clicking solely on the basis of 'entertainment, entertainment, entertainment.'  Alright then, why not assess its merits on the basis of what entertains and what does not.  1. In the ...

Review: Into The Storm: Superlative VFX, sloppy everything else!

Visually, Into The Storm offers quite a sensational depiction of multiple tornadoes but where plotlines and performances are concerned, it’s distressingly sloppy, writes Sukanya Verma. After witnessing a summer full of devastation from superheroes, monsters, apes, dragons, transformers and aliens, magnitude seems like an overdone model. Just how much (and often) can one wow over people and property being clobbered down to mindless debris? It works wonderfully when there’s judicious ...

Review: Hate Story 2 is gutless, brainless, soulless, sexless!

A stale plot with flatly executed scenes of retribution and a lacklustre leading lady; Hate Story 2 is too trivial to be erotic or thrilling, says Sukanya Verma.It's easy to gauge the interest of an audience by the frequency of illuminated phone screens during a showing or when the atmosphere inside what should be an attentive movie hall resembles a noisy coffee shop where people have come in for chitchat and cappuccino with a random channel barking in the background. Hate Story ...
