Dunkirk Review: Redefining heroes and humanity

'It's not combat, but deliverance that dictates the action in Dunkirk,' notes Sukanya Verma. War is the ultimate state of chaos. And its damning, damaging consequences torment the screen from start to finish in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, which jumps slam-bang into the heart of hostility with chilling urgency. Nolan's ingenuity in Dunkirk is a departure from high-browed concepts of science and space engaged in reverie-induced heists and time-bending breakthroughs or the distinctive showmanship ...

Review: Shab: Long, lacklustre, listless

Shab is too coy about sexuality and sleepy in its reflections of loneliness to get anywhere, feels Sukanya Verma. Raveena Tandon is a helluva attractive woman. The abundant, antsy energy that undermined the 1990s star's dramatic potential seems to have found its inner peace over the years. As witnessed in the recently-released Maatr, there's a noticeable thehrav in her passions and personality. This newfound serenity and self-awareness in her swaggering confidence pitches itself perfectly to ...

Mom review: More power to Sridevi!

'Her performance is a throwback to old-school histrionics and hysterics -- it's classic Sridevi,' says Sukanya Verma. There are two types of stepmothers in Hindi films. One who spends the entire duration of it torturing and plotting against her stepchildren and another who'll go to extremes to prove she's the epitome of maternal virtue. Sridevi plays one such selfless, loving and protective step mum of a haughty teenage girl in Ravi Udyawar's directorial debut, Mom. Before she assumes this ...

Bank Chor Review: A drab circus of laughs and thrills

This brand of funny by the virtue of I-know-I-cracked-a-bad-joke doesn't quite tickle, says Sukanya Verma. The title alludes to an expletive in the tradition of Delhi Belly's DK Bose. It's not mere wordplay, but also metaphorical of the deception Bank Chor has on its mind. Too bad this flat farce doesn't have the wits to pull it off. Directed by Bumpy for Y-Films, an offshoot of Yash Raj Films, this low-budget, low-rent comedy thriller starts out as a bumbling bank heist where everyone's a ...

Raabta Review: Rom-com, Rebirth and Mr Right crisis

Watching Raabta possibly can't be anyone's idea of entertainment in this birth or last, feels Sukanya Verma. Reincarnation works best when an individual demonstrates an irrepressible desire to redress a tragedy where innocent people are killed and deceived for no fault of their own. But in Raabta, this so-called misfortune is prompted by a fickle-minded girl's inability to pick between two guys. Dinesh Vijan's unintended allegory on 'the grass is always greener on the other side' syndrome, ...

Class of '92: 25 years of SRK, Kajol, Suniel Shetty...

Sukanya Verma looks at the debutants of that year and how they've fared since. Amitabh Bachchan proved he's still the boss in Khuda Gawah. Madhuri Dixit's Dhak Dhak in Beta set countless hearts palpitating. Akshay Kumar had his first taste of Khiladi even as Aamir Khan discovered his flair for sports-themed dramas with Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar. Salman Khan's career hit an all-time low with back-to-back duds like Nishchay, Jaagruti and Suryavanshi whereas Govinda and Juhi Chawla delivered one of ...

Bollywood's pre and post punar janam looks!

Raabta is all about reincarnation, which gives Sukanya Verma reason to compare pre and post reincarnation looks of characters actively engaged in punar janam. Unfulfilled desire is what drives many a rebirth in Bollywood. Romance or retribution, it's one of the most dramatic but reliable modes to ensure things end on a happier note the second time round. As the reincarnation typically happens over a period of time, what's most conspicuous about this phenomenon is a change in appearances. Like ...
