  • Top-5 Best Actors of 2012

    Joginder Tuteja, IndiaGlitz [Saturday, January 05, 2013] 2012 was an eclectic year for Bollywood as far as sheer variety was concerned. With middle of the road films also finding their due popularity, the line was diminished further between commercial and non-commercial cinema. This resulted in actors from varied genres of films finding a unanimous nod of approval from audience as well as critics alike. Ranbir Kapoor (Barfi!) Even though as a film ‘Barfi!’ was a tad uneven, what enabled the narrative to keep peaking at regular intervals was one man – Ranbir Kapoor. One can keep assigning adjectives to his act but rest assured, he would be pretty much finding himself in the awards arena at every function. He more than just justifies his selection

  • Movie Review: TABLE NO.21 by FENIL SETA

    They seemed like an ideal married couple. They had their own dreams and hopes for a better future. They looked cute together and were game for some cutesy and naughty stuff, in private. Most importantly, they looked innocent. However, a good old saying holds true – don’t judge a book by its cover. One never knows the kind of brutal and shocking past a person have had, even though his present state might not be giving even the slightest inclination of the same. Table No. 21 deals with this notion though it is essentially a thriller. Not a great piece of cinema…but a well-executed 108 minutes of entertainment…and surprises and shocks too! The story of the movie: Vivaan (Rajeev Khandelwal) and Siya (Tena Desae) are

  • Movie Review: Table No 21 is a thrilling roller coaster ride

    Table No 21 is this year’s first release. According to the director Aditya Datt, This film is a ‘Crazy Thriller’. There were speculations in the Press and Media about Table No 21 to be a rip-off of ‘Saw’, ‘The Hunger Game’ and ‘Phone booth’ and the film does have very few inspirations from the mentioned films, But as a plot this film is very different.

  • 3.5/5 – ‘Table No. 21’ review: A table-turning game, for sure! , by Ananya Bhattacharya

    ‘Table No. 21’ might just be director Aditya Datt’s ticket to fame: fame of the pure, unadulterated kinds. His earlier outings as a director – films such as ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’, ‘Dil Diya Hai’ and ‘Good Luck!’ – weren’t able to make much of an impact on either the audience or critics. However, with this film, Datt has undone all of his earlier lukewarm ventures, one might say. With a script that smells of fresh dew on grass, deals with an issue that is way more grave and at the end of the day, blends together an entire gamut of emotions from rage to sorrow, director Aditya Datt has carved to perfection a story that could have gone miserably haywire had it been dealt with

  • Review: Table No 21 is a game well played

    Ankur Pathak feels Table No 21 should be watched for the reactive social commentary that it is, and should not be misconceived as a vigilante film. If we leave aside a few embarrassing hiccups (read Rajdhani Express) that don’t even deserve to be accounted for, 2013 has begun on a hard-hitting note at the movies. Table No. 21, the first genuine release of the centenary year of Hindi cinema is a psychological thriller that ends with a delectable twist, one which justifies the intent of the highly structured plot. It not only conveys a relevant message, but does so without being propagandist about it.
