YJHD: A New Classic

YJHD: A New Classic

So you guys, since you should know by now that this blog is NOT in fact, the graveyard for lost PFC souls or film school idealists – it should come as no surprise to anyone that I absolutely loved YJHD with some very, very, very slight misgivings. Because I really do love you Bollywood, but […]

Dabangg 2: No Kamal From Pandey Ji

Dabangg 2: No Kamal From Pandey Ji

Yes! I managed to catch this earlier than I anticipated because for whatever reason, it was playing in NYC from the 20th instead of the 21st so I was like fuck holiday shopping, I’m going to watch my movie. However, because it’s still so early, if you’re a Salman fan and you’re planning to watch […]

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Non-Review: Wherein I Become An SRK Fan All Over Again

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Non-Review: Wherein I Become An SRK Fan All Over Again

Man, I don’t even know where to start. I mean, usually I have an angle when I start to write about a film – some primary thing that I took away from it that becomes the center of my ramblings. But with Jab Tak Hai Jaan, there’s just too much going on. First of all, […]

Student Of The Year: Kukkad Kamal Da

Student Of The Year: Kukkad Kamal Da

O. M. G. you guys, I LOVE THIS MOVIE. Love love love love looooooooooove it!! I have reasons. Many of them. First of all, it completely restores my faith that our New Jaded Generation will not escape the jaws of melodrama if Karan Johar has anything to do with it. After sitting through “realistic” but […]

Barfi! A Classic Tale Of Heart Vs. Mind

Barfi! A Classic Tale Of Heart Vs. Mind

Well, I wasn’t blown away, but I was charmed. I’m not one to get all gushy about filmy conceits like smiling your way through life’s tragedies or how to be happy even when the shit hits the fan, but what I can and always will appreciate is a love story well told. And that’s the […]

Procedure To Watch Motion Picture Fillim: Joker

Procedure To Watch Motion Picture Fillim: Joker

Joker is a masterstroke in film-making. It cannot be classified, analyzed or understood by the ordinary mortal mind. It’s purpose is two-fold. First, it reveals to us a long-hidden truth: Life really does exist beyond planet Earth. The secret is out. Shirish Kunder is Golkot. Second, it aims to disorient human beings by stripping the […]

Review: Ek Tha Fuzzy Wuzzy Tiger

Review: Ek Tha Fuzzy Wuzzy Tiger

I mean, for serious, Salman Khan is too freakin’ adorable in this movie! But be warned, this is definitely not the Bhai of Dabangg, Ready, Wanted or even Bodyguard, and it’s not the kind of film that engenders Bhaimania (unless just the mere sight of him sends you into a frenzy of seetis, which is […]

Cocktail: Un-Mix Me Please!

Cocktail: Un-Mix Me Please!

Cocktail is such an aggravating film. I don’t mean that in an entirely bad way because there is a lot there to appreciate. But there’s also so much that doesn’t work. It deserves to be watched for its sheer determination to push the boundaries of a stale genre as far as they can be pushed […]
