Dutta; Rating: ***1/2 In one of the countless visuals of stunning resonance, Aishwarya, playing the doomed and poetic tawaif (courtesan) Umrao Jaan Adaa, travels through a burning field of crops. “The crops have been reaped, now the [...]

October

Dhoom 2 Movie
  Dhoom Machale was the biggest chartbuster of 2004 and the track was the year’s largest selling ringtone as well. Dhoom 2 – the sequel of the 2004 action adventure is arriving. Undoubtedly the movie promises to be bigger and better! So does the music. Two years back music director Pritam Chakravarthy gave his first [...]


Yatra Music Review

October

“Yatra“; Music Directors: Khayyam, Goutam Ghose; Music Label: Times Music; Rating: **1/2 Veteran music composer Khayyam, whose dulcet melodies in films like “Kabhi Kabhi”, “Razia Sultan”, “Bazaar”, “Noorie” and “Umrao Jaan” have won him hordes of fans, is back after a long gap in “Yatra”.

Jaan-E-Mann Review

Jaan E Maan Poster
From SANGAM to KABHI KABHIE to CHANDNI to SAAJAN, the concept of two men falling head over heals in love with the same woman has been done to death in Bollywood. Is there anything else left to explore? What novelty does JAAN-E-MANN offer then? Is it old wine packaged in a new bottle? Sure, JAAN-E-MANN [...]


Don Movie Review

Don Poster
  Remaking a yesteryear hit can be an arduous task. Especially if it happens to be the Amitabh Bachchan starrer DON. One film people remember vividly for various reasons, right from Big B’s towering performance to the popular tracks to its gripping story and sharp execution… The advantages first? Perhaps, the new generation might not [...]

Umrao Jaan
  “Ek toote huye dil ki”, the sad number from Aishwarya Rai-starrer “Umrao Jaan”, has emerged as the number one song of the week. The top 10 Hindi film songs of the week are: 1. “Ek toote huye dil ki” – Film: “Umrao Jaan”; Music: Anu Malik; Singer: Alka Yagnik. A short and sad track [...]


‘Vivah’ Music

October

Vivah Music
  “Vivah”; Music director: Ravindra Jain; Lyrics: Ravindra Jain; Music Label: Saregama; Rating: ** Think of Ravindra Jain and one is reminded of his classic compositions – “Chitchor”, “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se”, “Geet Gaata Chal”. His new venture “Vivah”, however, fails to create that old magic. “Vivah” has a number of melodious songs but somehow [...]


‘Rocky’

Rocky
  Let’s just say that Rocky tries to be a typical Bollywood action film — its hero trying to do everything. From wooing a belle whie running around trees, to beating up goons and being a dutiful son, it’s all in a day’s work for Rocky. Many films try it, of course, and this one [...]


‘Dor’

10

October

Nagesh Kukunoor’s Dor is a complex tale of how two very diverse worlds collide. Yet it is told in an uncomplicated, sensible manner, minus melodrama, cliches and a glamour overkill. It’s also amusing enough to keep you in splits throughout. Ayesha Takia plays Meera — an innocent, affectionate, spirited but abiding young woman who lives [...]


‘Khosla Ka Ghosla’

October

Khosla Ka Ghosla
  ‘Khosla Ka Ghosla’ presents a common social problem with a delectable blend of comedy. Director Dibakar Banerjee in his very first outing has adopted a nice way to explain a common problem prevailing in some metropolises. Khosla Ka Ghosla stars Anupam Kher , Boman Irani , Parvin Dabas and Ranvir Shorey in main roles. [...]
