By Taran Adarsh, December 2, 2010 – 16:17 IST On the whole, KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY, based on the Chittagong rebellion, is an enlightening experience of a poignant, but little-known chapter in history.

ISHQIYA: Qalandar’s Mini-Review

Ishqiya is better than most films the Hindi film industry makes, even if its pleasures weren’t the ones I was expecting. I went into the film looking for a taut, erotically charged thriller about a femme fatale manipulating two saps over a pot of gold, film noir in a bhaiyya-setting as it were. What I

Kurbaan – Mini Review

Her bright-red shalwar qameez simply underscores her nervousness; not the

Film Review of EK – THE POWER OF ONE by Aakash Gandhi

EK – THE POWER OF ONE Film Review Source:  avstv.com By Aakash Gandhi Reviewer’s Rating:  5.5/10 EK – THE POWER OF ONE is vintage Bollywood masala, flooded with action, drama, comedy, and of course romance. Unfortunately, like most in its category, it fails to leave any lasting impact thanks to a very familiar tale wrapped
