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 ...

Arbaaz-Malaika, Arjun Kapoor and Raakhee! The week in the movies

Sukanya Verma shares her exciting filmi week with us. There’s nothing as a dull day for someone who writes about films for a living. I wrote a diary -- That Magical Medium -- about my ardency for the medium in 2002 and I feel exactly the same enthusiasm more than a decade later. Even at its most frivolous, cinema offers so much insight that it’s actually humbling. Furthermore, there’s always such hustle and bustle enveloping it. Be it releases, projects, trailers, ...

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: Aligarh is a refreshing and respectful take on homosexuality

Manoj Bajpayee gives his character a lot of soul and sensitivity in Aligarh, feels Sukanya Verma. In Tom Ford’s A Single Man, a college professor tells his class how 'a minority is only thought of as one when it constitutes some kind of threat to the majority -- a real threat or an imagined one. And therein lies the fear. If the minority is somehow invisible, the fear is much greater. That fear is why minority is persecuted.'  His choice of words may be broad but what he’s ...

Review: Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive has its goofy moments

But it's nowhere as fun as the 2010 comedy, writes Sukanya Verma. When Abhishek Sharma’s Tere Bin Laden came out in 2010, its wacky premise and fizzy humour, involving an Osama Bin Laden doppelganger and a Pakistani reporter desperate to migrate to United States of America, made me guffaw. It was one of my favourite films that year. What it lacked in sophistication, it made up in effrontery. A year later, the infamous Al Qaeda founder was killed in a US army operation and Sharma ...
