Hasee Toh Phasee - a movie review

So here’s the thing about ‘Hasee toh Phasee’ ….

Familiar been-there-done-that backdrop of the Big Fat Indian Shaadi, a very ‘Meri Dulhan Ki Behen’ kind of triangle that typical feel-good romantic comedy/chick-flick (with due apologies to those who dislike that term!) …

Before you dismiss it as another cheesy, easy, breezy Bollywood romance, HTP is the product of an unusual combo – Karan Johar +... Anurag Kashyap + Vikramaditya Motwane. Do the math and what you get is a charming, interesting, intriguing phillum, more than zara-hat-ke!

Rabindranath Tagore still lives in Kolkata

‘A’  got back from Kolkata yesterday. He really liked the city, except for the traffic. (that might be true of most cities in India. You take away the traffic from Mumbai and it’s gorgeous and grand) It got me thinking about Kolkata and this great old city that stands strong in the East of India – though many people feel that it has lost it’s way.

An interview with Khushwant Singh, author of Maharaja in Denims

Though Khushwant Singh, the Chandigarh-based author, journalist and TV host describes his new book Maharaja in Denims, as “fiction set in Chandigarh”, the novel explores the realities of modern Punjab and is based on Khushwant’s observations as a ‘chronicler of the Sikhs of  a new century’.

Enough Said - a movie review

Has there been Enough Said about ‘Enough Said’?

I sat down to watch this movie mainly because it has one of my favorite comic actresses, Julia Louis-Dreyfus playing the lead.

Having been a fan of this funny girl since her ‘Seinfeld’ days where she held her own against three guys, right up to the hilarious ‘Veep’, I was curious about how she would be in a non-comic environment. The odd reality is that great comic actors don’t do ‘serious & normal’ too well – for example, Steve Martin or even Ben Stiller.

August: Osage County - a movie review

I slowly staggered out of the cinema hall, feeling bruised & exhausted – ‘August: Osage County’ does that to you. I have to confess that the first reaction I had was to wonder whether the mother in me is as blunt, mean & cruel as the pill-popping, vicious & foul-mouthed Violet played with scary conviction by one of the finest actors in Hollywood, Meryl Streep. Be warned, this is a ravaged, cancer stricken, ugly wig wearing Streep; a far cry from the gracious, gorgeous & oh so friendly actor we know & love!
