What can one say about Sanjay Dutt, that the multitudes of headlines, columns, think pieces, testimonials, and even an unauthorized biography, haven’t let us know? Dutt or Baba as he’s more fondly referred to by his fandom, ranging from colleagues in the film fraternity, to the man on the street, has always been a darlingContinue reading “Sanju Movie Review: Baba Ki Chowki”
Amitabh Bachchan doesn’t need to do any roles in Hollywood. Being in Bollywood, the Big B has already superseded the Big H. Most of the action heroes in Hollywood (read Stallone, Arnold, Costner) still rely on their brawn to showcase their ‘angry young men’ image.

She is honest, fair but never mean – three qualities every person with a mouthpiece should have. ThereContinue reading “Rendezvous with Anupama Chopra: Part 1”
As a country we have been the proud owners of some of the best movies and directors… but like any other country our obsession with Hollywood doesn’t die! Whether it is ‘getting inspired’ by Hollywood films, or positioning oneself as a ‘Hollywood actor’ (read Mallika Sherawat), we have constantly measured our worth with getting orContinue reading “Broken Horses (2015): A Quick Review”
Note: When I refer to Raj Kumar Hirani (RKH), I equally refer to his partner in crime Abhijat Joshi.
