Fukrey, a 2013 film about a bunch of feckless Dilli fellows who fall afoul of a foul-mouthed female don, and some random layabouts, was an unexpected success. To want to run off a sequel is understandable. What doesn’t make sense is to make this return such a slog. The actors are (more or less) the […]

The only consolation I could derive from watching Indrajith is about a romance angle that wasn’t fleshed out. Indrajith (Gautham Karthik) spies on the girl-next-door when she is about to change. A full-fledged sequence plays out on how she takes revenge and leaves him in his boxers. When the duo meet again, we learn the […]
