Class of ’83 Movie Review: A Misfired Shot!

Netflix India has garnered a reputation for churning out one after another boring series and films, I am sure that their recent original film, Class Of ’83 can firmly get a place in the walk of shame. And with this being the of the third collaboration of Netflix with Red Chilies Entertainment after Bard of Blood and Betaal,  should lead them to introspect on the quality of their output. Or may be there is an aim to get the audience to unsubscribe from Netflix, if that is the aim they are on their path.Continue reading “Class of ’83 Movie Review: A Misfired Shot!”

I never thought I would say this – but with Players, Abbas Mastan has come up with a better heist movie than what several other big shot directors and stars were attempting in recent past. Make it –very recent!

Oh boy, after the disappointing way a highly anticipated ‘chase’ movie fizzled into a ridiculous heist flick a few weeks back, I was ready for the worst. And it did look like exactly that, when we get introduced to the burglar, Charlie (Abhishek Bachchan) in action with his lady accomplice Riya (Bipasha Basu) in a laughable jewelry robbery.Continue reading “Players: Game On!

Players – Will Abbas Mustan deliver in their Thriller Style?

So 2011 comes to an end, near about 107 films were released in 2011, that includes several critically and commercially successful films. Khans delivered us the most brainless blockbusters of all time and on the other side was disappointment as some of the anticipated films didn’t live up to expectations. Nevertheless we have entered 2012 where a lot of interesting films are lined up for release. Some of the films I am really looking forward to in 2012 are Shanghai, Kahaani, Agent Vinod, Ishaqzaade, Rock The Shaadi, Talaash, Jannat 2, Paan Singh Tomar, Barfee, Ek Tha Tiger etc.Continue reading “Players – Will Abbas Mustan deliver in their Thriller Style?”

I was only 5 years old when I first heard the songs and dialogues of Tridev but from a very early time this movie has had a special place in my heart. And later on thanks to Tridev, also came to know of the whiz kid director, Mr Rajiv Rai.Continue reading “Rajiv Rai : Master of the ‘Masala Movie’ genre”
