Star Trek Beyond Review: Breathless action, fun trip!

Director Justin Lin injects his Fast and Furious vigour to the series, says Sukanya Verma. If to live long and prosper is a promise the Star Trek brand made to its massive fan following, it’s keeping its end of the bargain. Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the franchise juggernaut comprising of small screen voyages and big continues to evoke nostalgia and inspire ingenuity. But it’s the combination of these two qualities in the third installment of the reboot ... Rediff.com, 6 days ago

Applauding Superman on screen...

...And Jennifer Aniston off it, in Sukanya Verma's super filmi week! This week I woke up to tragic world news with frightening frequency, got trolled by a bunch of humourless Hrithik fans too fixated to realise these are precisely the reasons to get excited about the movie and fell sick for the third time in quick succession.  And yet, I wouldn't call the last seven days a complete dampener. Here's why: Monday Monday blues meet men in blue as I sit down to watch a movie based on a ...

10 Things Textbooks Won't Tell You About Mohenjo Daro

Sukanya Verma tells you what, only the way she can! Love it, hate it but you just cannot ignore the bewildering depiction of the Indus Valley Civilisation in the promo of Ashutosh Gowarikar's brand new offering, Mohenjo Daro. It's not the first time the director of an Oscar nominated film travelled back in time to fashion a large-scale celluloid epic. Be it Lagaan, Jodhaa Akbar or Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se, period films are familiar terrain for the somber filmmaker. In his latest starring ...

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 ...

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 ...

Box Office: Kabali fares average

The hits and misses of the week. The Hindi version of Rajinikanth's Kabali did not find much love outside Tamil Nadu, and could not match the hype it generated. The Superstar has never really enjoyed a fan following with the Hindi audience, and fared average at the box office. Madaari has not been able to cash in on its popular actors, Irrfan and Jimmy Sheirgill. The title 'Madaari' is too old-fashioned to appeal to the multiplex audience, for whom this film is meant. The film ...
