Bhoothnath returns Starring: Amitabh Bachchan, Parth Bhalerao, Boman Irani, Sanjay Mishra Rated: 6/10 Bhoothnath Returns could mean many things for many people but the unanimous vote for it will still go to it being a surprise package.

Sunday, 13 Apr 2014 | MEENAKSHI RAO

rio 2 Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, Leslie Mann, Bruno Mars, Jemaine Clement, George Lopez, Jamie Foxx Rated: 5.5/10 As is the case with most animations from Hollywood, this one too (from Blue Sky Studios) is beautifully sketched, coloured and executed. Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Bruno Mars and Jamie Foxx render an excellent…

Horror less terrifying

Sunday, 13 Apr 2014 | Meenakshi Rao

oculus Starring: Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Katee Sackhoff Rated: 4/10 Too much jargon, too little happenings and some not-so-terrifying horror sequences makes this one a lazy ghost of a story. But that does not take away from the ambitious premise that this film fails to cash in on. A rugged as iron mirror…

This one is for the future

Sunday, 13 Apr 2014 | MEENAKSHI RAO

divergent Starring: Kate Winslet, Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Jai Courtney Rated: 5.5/10 I don’t much like living in a complicated, futuristic world where the only thing I can recognise as connected with my kind of humanity are the concrete buildings and some technologically retarded metro trains which do have a…

Tera hero idhar hai

Sunday, 06 Apr 2014 | Meenakshi Rao

Main Tera Hero Starring: Varun Dhawan, Ileana D'Cruz, Nargis Fakhri, Anupam Kher Rated: 6/10 Votaries of “meaningful” or even “slightly meaningful” cinema can get ready for an audacious boob-moving kick by the young gun from the House of Dhawan. With daddy’s full sanction, a six-packed, chikna chested Varun does everything that a David…

More like a short film

Sunday, 06 Apr 2014 | Meenakshi Rao

After the third bell Starring: Udayan Banerjee, Akanksha D Sharma, Sukhesh Arora, Sukhesh Arora, Akanksha Dahiya, Gauri Dewal Rated: 5.5/10 A group of guy next door youngsters, more men than women, star is this rather homely crime thriller which comes across more as theatre than as a film. It was rather refreshing to…

Captain calls the shots

Sunday, 06 Apr 2014 | Meenakshi Rao

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Starring: Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Hayley Atwell, Robert Redford, Samuel L Jackson Rated: 6/10 Captain America is back and it’s a marvel that decades of being buried in ice have only brightened his aura. Like all superhero movies, this one too comes with the usual “save…
