LOVE, FACTUALLY Gautham Vasudev Menonâ€™s very real, very true-to-life, very messy romance is yet another effort, this year, that pushes the envelope far beyond the realms of â€œsafeâ€ commercial cinema. MAR 7, 2010 â€“ WHAT A YEAR THIS IS TURNING OUT to be for Tamil cinema! Forget good films or perfect films or successful films or films that will be claimed as classics by aliens roaming the planet after humankind has become extinct â€“ Iâ€™m simply referring to the unfettered ambition that has been leaping off our screens ever since the new decade dawned. Recent releases like Goa and Thamizh Padam and Porkalam have, in their own distinct ways, helped demolish the long-nurtured myth that the Tamil audience is toweringly traditional â€“ with hair well-oiledRead more...
BOARD EXAM A carrom whiz is constantly tested by life in a beautifully textured docudrama that keeps us at an armâ€™s length. FEB 7, 2010 â€“ SURYA (SIDDHARTH), THE MINOR-LEAGUE LEADING MAN of Striker â€“ I hesitate to call him â€œhero,â€ for he stands resolutely, refreshingly life-sized â€“ is someone with major dreams. He lives in the Mumbai suburb of Malvani (the film is based on true-life events, weâ€™re told), where his best buddy Zaid (Ankur Vikal) smirks about not having stepped beyond Ghatkopar â€“ but Surya envisions a lucrative future in Dubai. Despite his brotherâ€™s (Anoop Soni) admonitions that life isnâ€™t wish-fulfillment fantasy, like the kiddie tales in Chandoba, Surya forks over a sizable sum to a dubious travel agent and, unsurprisingly, loses itRead more...
The ever-tightening web of news-channel foul play forms the focus of an engrossing melodrama. Plus, a wickedly entertaining desi-Western that pulls its punches. Rann: RAM GOPAL VARMAâ€™S RANN OPENS with the sun glowering on a sweltering metropolis. Inside the homes, however, the heat emanates from television, from news channels aboil with sensation mongering (underscored by shivering strings and pounding percussion more suited to the climactic battle in Macbeth). Within a short span, we are thrown amidst a battalion on the rims of the TV-news business â€“ the patriarchal anchor Vijay Malik (Amitabh Bachchan), his smarmy competitor Amrish (Mohnish Bahl), Vijayâ€™s son Jai (Sudeep), Vijayâ€™s son-in-law Naveen (Rajat Kapoor), callow reporter Purab (Riteish Deshmukh), the buffoonish journalist Anand (Rajpal Yadav), go-getting news executive Nalini (Suchitra Krishnamoorthy),Read more...
The unlikely team of Raj Kumar Santoshi and Ranbir Kapoor serves up a comedy that casts a spell (well, at least for a while). Plus, the latest Madhur Bhandarkar exposÃ©. More hereRead more...
EXCERPT: “I wanted to shake these bratty SMS-era youngsters by the shoulder and tell them that this story needs this pace â€“ if itâ€™s a slow film, itâ€™s because it isnâ€™t set in a fast world. I wanted to tell them that this was, after all, the 1970s â€“ an India of tonga carts and unsliced loaves of bread and two-rupee notes, and when people had to wait for days to hear from one another, either through letters or the tiresome mechanics of booking a trunk call over staticky communication lines. How easy it was, back then, to lose touch with people, who didnâ€™t leave permanent footprints of their journey through life on, say, Facebook. (Today, you cannot shake off even the friends you wantRead more...
