Songs good but not on a song

Sunday, 25 Sep 2016 | Shalini Saksena

Banjo Cast: Riteish Deshmukh, Nargis Fakhri Rated: 5.5/10 The minute you think of Riteish Deshmukh, the only thing that comes to mind is Housefull, Kya Kool Hain Hum and Masti. He is not the kind of actor who would be expected to carry an entire film on his shoulders as the solo hero. But...

The conviction is missing

Sunday, 25 Sep 2016 | Shalini Saksena

Wah Taj Cast: Shreyas Talpade, Manjari Fadnis, Hemant Pandey, Rajesh Sharma Rated: 4/10 As far as concepts go, Wah Taj comes up with a totally different approach to a problem that appears to be a favourite with some Bollywood directors and producers — a nexus between the politicians and the bad businessmen who...

Not loaded enough

Sunday, 25 Sep 2016 | Meenakshi Rao

The Magnificent Seven Cast: Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Byung-hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Martin Sensme Rated: 5/10 One thought magnificent would mean grand, Western would be wild old Charles Bronson type, and seven would be all able and fired up, led as they are with the...

Nostalgia all the way

Sunday, 25 Sep 2016 | Meenakshi Rao

Bridget Jones's Baby Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey, Emma Thompson Rated: 5.5/10 Dear diary, I met up with Bridget Jones today after many years. She looks old, pretty old actually. At 43, she is having a baby but her bumbling persona remains all the same despite her changed (read wrinkled) face. Nothing around...

Quite a delivery

Sunday, 25 Sep 2016 | Meenakshi Rao

Strokes Cast voice over: Andy Samberg, Katie Crown, Kelsey Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Jennifer Aniston Rated: 6/10 Cute as they come, the charm of Storks comes from the newness of being. Well, for one, there’s never been a storks story on animation. Yes, there have been birdies but only as sidekicks...

A powerful film

Sunday, 18 Sep 2016 | Meenakshi Rao

PINK Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Tapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang, Angad Bedi, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Piyush Mishra Rated: 9/10 You can call it an uncomfortable masterpiece. The subject is everyday. The presentation is extra-ordinary and the actors fleshed out to the core. Pink is a moving, hard-hitting, stark and candid film on eve-teasing, bullying...

Same old difference

Sunday, 18 Sep 2016 | Meenakshi Rao

RAAZ REBOOT Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Kriti Kharbanda Gaurav Arora Rated: 5/10 Familiarity breeds contempt but in this case, boredom. As the Bhatt brothers realised, the haunted house in a distant land theory has been done to death by the House of Bhatts. That’s why they have announced an end to this series. So you can...

A solo gripper

Sunday, 18 Sep 2016 | Meenakshi Rao

THE SHALLOWS Cast: Blake Lively Rated: 6/10 Shallow is a deep one on will power and fight for survival against all odds, in this, the odds being a killer shark, a marooned surfer in a deserted ocean and a bird for company. That’s a pretty constricting platform to make a 2-hour film on but...

Good old animation

Sunday, 18 Sep 2016 | Meenakshi Rao

ROBINSON CRUSOE Cast voice over: Matthias Schweighöfer, Kaya Yanar, Cindy aus Marzahn, Dieter Hallervorden, Aylin Tezel Rated: 7/10 Not the time to release such a fun movie for kids considering examinations are on full blast and Hollywood films rarely make it beyond two weeks. All the more so as this one would have...

Teletale

Sunday, 18 Sep 2016 | Pioneer

Naagin season 2 Here’s is a bit of good news for all those who loved Ekta Kapoor’s Naagin. Rumour has it that season 2 is all set to air from October, though the date has yet to be finalised. Recently, the promos of the show were being aired which features Mouni...

India’s hour of reckoning

25 Sep 2016 | Dr Ashutosh Misra

India should learn to pay back in kind by employing the bleeding through a thousand cuts strategy. Pakistan has been able to hurt us constantly by building operational networks and human assets in our country...

Akhilesh becomes stronger than earlier despite Family feud

26 Sep 2016 | PNS | Lucknow

In the on-going feud within the Samajwadi Party’s first family, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has emerged stronger in the eyes of the people. He has not only become the first choice as CM as compared to Mulayam Singh Yadav, but has also been a big hit among the Muslims and the Yadavs – the core vote bank of Samajwadi Party...

SOUNDBITE

The Uri attack could be a reaction to atrocities in Kashmir. Relatives of those killed and blinded were hurt and outraged.

Pakistan’s PM| Nawaz Sharif

I think as you get older, you really get to the point where you just don't care anymore what people think.

Actor | Jada Pinkett Smith

We have long urged India and Pakistan to find ways to resolve their differences, not through violence, but through diplomacy. White House
