Anupama Chopra's review: Kahaani

Kahaani is a nifty thriller with an enjoyment quotient that is indirectly proportionate to how long you spend thinking about the plot. It's the story of Vidya Bagchi, a software programmer from London played by Vidya Balan, who is both heavily pregnant and missing a husband.

Anupama Chopra's review: London Paris New York

The film follows the crisscrossing paths of Nikhil and Lalitha over eight years. They meet, for one night only, in three different cities. What begins as a hesitant friendship evolves into passion and eventually a more mature love. The story echoes One Day, the Lone Scherfig film, in which the man and woman meet on July 15 over twenty years.

Mayank Shekhar's review: Jodi Breakers

A movie can either make sense or money. So some filmmakers strongly suspect. Why did we expect anything better here? We always do. Leading man Madhavan is the podgy, hammy hero with an odd accent and strange goatee, writes Mayank Shekhar.

The boy, an obsessive, relentless roadside Romeo, having chased the girl from the streets of Mumbai to Mallu-land, finally holds her, jolts her up, pops the winning question... Mayank Shekhar writes..

The narrator, who’s also the hero, suggests there are three kinds of kids in the world: “chamche”, who suck up to their parents; the rebellious sorts, who take them head-on; and the smart ones, who do what they like, and their parents never know. Read On..

Mayank Shekhar's review: Gali Gali Chor Hai

This relentless, blind hatred reflects the Indian middle class’ chief pre-occupation. The under-classes that this film, given the grammar, targets though, probably has fewer such issues with their netas, reports Mayank Shekhar.

Mayank Shekhar's review: Agneepath

An earnest Vijay Dinanath Chauhan delivers poetic justice before a nearly packed hall on the proverbial 'first day first show'. Mayank Shekhar writes.

Mayank Shekhar's review: Chaalis Chaurasi

The drama is set in stretched real time. The gang has a common mission, a heist that may or may not go wrong. Each character in the group is loony in his own unique way, writes Mayank Shekhar.

Mayank Shekhar's review: Sadda Adda

The debutant director of this rather patchy, amateurishly filmed, poorly dubbed, artlessly designed picture is a writer as well. It shows. His last work was the awesomely executed Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar, writes Mayank Shekhar

Mayank Shekhar review: Players

A few players intend to share the loot, given the plan or plot (borrowed from Hollywood) is already in place. That’s the story of this film. It could be the story of its making as well! Mayank Shekhar writes.
