|Sarit Ray's review: Issaq||
Over the years, Shakespeare’s famous star-crossed lovers have found themselves in various forms and in various places.Yet, seldom have they been associated with as nonsensical a mess as Manish Tiwary’s Issaq. Sarit Ray writes.
|Sarit Ray's review: Ramaiya Vastavaiya||
Rich boy, poor girl, inevitable romance and the trials in the path for 'true love'. The formulaic love story was in the 90s what south remakes is in today's Bollywood. It raked in money, made women believe in archetypical romantic hero willing to kill and be killed was real and launched the careers of some today's biggest stars.
|Sarit Ray's review: D-Day||
Nikhil Advani is known for elaboraltely woven love stories (Kal Ho Na Ho, Salaam-E-Ishq). Yet, Advani shows command over the genre in D-Day. The action is slick, the settings credible and the cinematography impressive.
|Sarit Ray's review: Ship Of Theseus||
Ship Of Theseus, no doubt, an intellectual exercise, the sort festival films often indulge in. Yet, the narrative is lucid, and the stories are simple and deeply moving.
|Sarit Ray's review: Bhaag Milkha Bhaag||
For a film about sprinting and clocking shortest timings possible, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag moves at a snail’s pace and goes on for over 3 hours. And while the protagonist purportedly possesses tremendous focus, the film seems to lack that very quality. Sarit Ray writes.
|Sarit Ray's review: Policegiri||
Policegiri is less of a movie and more of a business idea. The commodity being sold is Sanjay Dutt, an ageing star with a sizeable, and presently nostalgic, fan following.
|Sarit Ray's review: Lootera||
Flaws notwithstanding, Lootera is of a standard that’s inarguably higher than the Bollywood average. Here’s a director to watch out for. Vikramaditya Motwane’s is yet to come. His familiarity with his settings is commendable. Sarit Ray writes.
