Toilet -- Ek Prem Katha may spring a surprise

Unlikely as it may seem, Akshay Kumar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha may be on its way to spring a surprise at the box office. In fact, the process started from day two after its release as the film’s collections took huge jump on Saturday followed by another leap on Sunday.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha ... Part fun, part sermon

With little choice of genres left for films after themes like family social, horror and mythology were taken away by TV channels, filmmakers have to find variations in what they are left with: romance, action and comedy.

Film audience rues being taken for granted: stars & others' poor show this week

*What Shah Rukh Khan and director Imtiaz Ali have done with Jab Harry Met Sejal can be called a patch-up job. The distributors may lose money but what Shah Rukh Khan has lost in this one weekend is his 25 years of stardom and goodwill.

Jab Harry Met Sejal......they go bankrupt -- creatively

Jab Harry Met Sejal is a road movie where romance happens on the way. There have been some films on this theme like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, and Jab We Met in the romantic- fun category while Dhanak was a beautiful film about two kids.

Word of mouth may help family entertainer

Mubarakan came as a full family entertainer after a long gap, a gap when fillers and mediocre films reigned. However, the film’s opening day collections were poor to put it plainly. To a certain extent, the promotion and the presentation of the film were not quite attractive.

RaagDesh........Purposeless

RaagDesh has been backed by RajyaSabha Television which, in itself, is quite curious! What is the Upper House of the Parliament, which is not even elected by direct public voting and the TV channel devoted to the august house, getting into any sort of a commercial activity, obviously, financed by...

Indu Sarkar.......Who cares!

There seems to be some kind of intent among some filmmakers to please the present dispensation at the helm in India. So, we have a film here which concocts a story around 1975/1977 Emergency declared in India by the then prime minister Indira Gandhi to save her government and her position. This is...

Mubarakan......Fun while it lasts

Mubarakan is designed to be a crazy comedy on the lines of Bazmee’s own, Welcome, Sajid Khan’s Housefull, Nikhil Advani’s Patiala House and other such movies where knotty situations are created leading to one tangle after another, leading to a lot of funny situations and laughter as a result.
