Gunday, directed and written by Ali Abbas Zafar, is an unabashed love letter to the 1970s, the height of our romance with Amitabh Bachchan’s Angry Young Man. A time when heroes, even if they were criminals, were honourable men, writes Anupama Chopra.
There is bromance, romance, revenge, and spicy dialoguebaazi. In short, all the 'sholay' to light up a Bollywood bonfire. What Gunday does not have is soul and enough glue to keep the moviegoer going through the length of the movie.
Though Shekhar Suman's directorial debut has an unconventional plot, the script doesn't do justice to it. As far as Adhyayan is concerned, his performance is not up to the mark. Even Om Puri and Deepti Naval are wasted in the film.
Vinil Mathew's debut directorial venture is about confused Nikhil (Sidharth) who bumps into eccentric mad scientist Meeta (Parineeti) years after their first meeting and sparks fly.
With Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap backing the movie, expectations were high. Thankfully, the film lives up to its promise. The Parineeti Chopra, Siddharth Malhotra-starrer sets new norms for rom-com in Bollywood.
One by Two is one of those determinedly contemporary romantic dramas that are entirely played out in the world of stylish offices, coffee shops, malls, multiplexes and nightclubs. Here the beautiful, affluent, lonely young folk of Mumbai work out their angst.
Salman Khan is back on silver screen after a gap of 13 months with Jai Ho. The king of masala entertainers this time is 'being human', for Jai Ho has a social message.
There is nothing lovely about the world that director Ashim Ahluwalia creates in Miss Lovely. Set in the mid-1980s, the film is about two brothers who produce C-grade sex and horror films.
Ashim Ahluwalia's Miss Lovely has everything that a Bollywood audience does not expect, does not have an appetite for.
There are many things to enjoy in Dedh Ishqiya - starting with that curious name. Director Abhishek Chaubey's new installment in the adventures of the lovable rogues - Khalujan and Babban - is rich in atmospherics and poetry. Anupama Chopra writes.
