‘Drishyam 2’: Not as Smooth as Last Time

‘Drishyam 2’: Not as Smooth as Last Time

Bollywood isn’t really known for pulling off suspense thrillers, certainly not for sustaining the steam over a sequel. But, like Drishyam in 2015, Drishyam 2 lulls you with its modest settings, simple characters, human cops, and a family caught in events beyond its control, till it lands home its lesson a second time — it’s […]

‘Uunchai’: A Heartfelt Ode to Friendship

‘Uunchai’: A Heartfelt Ode to Friendship

By Shalini Langer This is as far as it gets from a Sooraj Barjatya film. It also avoids the melodrama that movies of this kind tend to lapse into, though it can’t resist the temptation to stretch the length to at least an hour more than it should be. Still, how often do you get to […]

Cast: Swara Bhaskar, Shikha Talsania, Meher Vij, Pooja Chopra, Girish Kulkarni, Manish Chadhari Director: Kamal Pandey Rating: 2.5 stars Four women whooping it up in Goa, dumping deadening domesticity, kicking their heels up: a one-line premise becomes quite a lark in ‘Jahaan Chaar Yaar’.

‘KGF 2’: Too Much Sound, Lot of Fury, Little Impact

SS Rajamouli delivers an epic mythological action superhero bromance

SS Rajamouli delivers an epic mythological action superhero bromance

Written by Shubhra Gupta RRR is a roaring, rearing, rousing mix of genres — epic-mythological-action-superhero-bromance, that very SS Rajamouli concoction, which we are invited to swallow in one humungous gulp. It is also, needless to say, deafeningly loud. But given that the film compelled me to stay with it, and granted me much fun while at it, […]

‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’: A Visual Treat

‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’: A Visual Treat

By Shubhra Gupta MUMBAI: The only way you can enjoy Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi is to embrace its extravagantly-constructed universe — the elaborate sets that make up the red-light area of Kamathipura that becomes the location of most of the film’s run-time, the frames which look like art deco paintings, and, most crucially, the very […]
