    After 'Gangs of Wasseypur' director Anurag Kashyap turns from the badlands of India towards Mumbai---the economic capital of India.... But the feel of this movie is the same---dark , gripping and gritty.... He had the chance to show some nice and glitzy locations , and some high octane...

    Movies Ashdoc's Movie Review---PK

    In all of Amir Khan's films his hard work shows . PK is no exception . A lot of toil and hard work has been put into every scene , into every dialogue , and into every expression on Amir's face . He certainly carries the whole weight of the film on his capable shoulders , but I would not dare...

    Movies Ashdoc's Movie Review---Chaar Sahibzaade ( Hindi 3D )

    It was a supremely tragic tale of heroism and martyrdom and sacrifice that this land had produced....and my eyes were already brimming with tears even before the movie began....

    Movies Ashdoc's Movie Review---Bang Bang

    Bang Bang is pure make believe stuff with not an ounce of reality . Consider this---the villain is whisking away the heroine taking her far away from the hero . And at that very moment , the hero sees a formula one car being unloaded from it's container and promptly grabs control of it and...

    Movies Ashdoc's Movie Review---Haider

    Liberals rule the roost in Bollywood . And their version of liberalism nowadays consists of portraying the very forces that defend the Indian state and on whom the state depends for survival ( like the armed forces for instance ) as villains . In other countries such a portrayal of the forces...

    Movies Ashdoc's Movie Review---Deliver Us From Evil

    The film should have been titled '' O lord , deliver us from all evil ''---the first evil being non belief in the lord himself ....for it shows the journey of a New York police officer from non belief towards belief to the point where he gives up his job as police officer to join the priest who...

    Movies Ashdoc's Movie Review---Daawat E Ishq

    For the first time I realised that dowry is a pan Indian phenomenon . I used to think that this pernicious custom is prevalent only among the hindu community . But the movie shows even muslims taking dowry from a girl's father in exchange for marrying their sons to the daughter. And it is custom...

    Movies Ashdoc's Movie Review---Mardaani

    'Mardaani' tells the story of a goodlooking female cop ( played by Rani Mukherjee ) who literally wears the pants in her house and also in the film---for her husband is reduced to a sidekick as far as his role in the film is concerned . From her language at least , she seems to be marathi police...

    Memoirs of a geisha ( 2005 )--- The setting is Japan , where Geishas have their own place in society . Narration of the film is done in the wonderfully old voice of a Geisha who has been through the ups and downs of life . And as is typical in the life stories of fallen women ( and a...

    Movies Ashdoc's Movie Review---The Grand Budapest Hotel

    'The grand Budapest hotel' does invoke nostalgia for the old times . Those times are long gone---trampled by nazi jackboots and later crushed by the dead hand of communism , for Budapest in this movie is a metaphor for central Europe ; Budapest being the capital of central European nation of...

    Movies Ashdoc's Movie Review---Humpty Sharma Kee Dulhaniya

    This is one film with a massive DDLJ ( Dilwale dulhaniya le jayenge movie ) hangover . And it has no qualms about admitting that fact openly , but does not have the budget/money to reproduce ithe magic of DDLJ . While DDLJ showed us Switzerland , this film shuttles between Delhi and Ambala...

    Movies Ashdoc's Movie Review---Hate Story Part 2

    Hate story part 1 had delivered on both storyline , acting and above all on the oomph and sex scenes . The promos of part 2 promised the same . So off I went to the theater licking my lips in anticipation of some mouthwatering skin show and explicit sex scenes between the hero and heroine ...
