Showtime Season 1 Part 2: Little To Offer

Showtime Season 1 Part 2: Little To Offer

Rediff.com12 hours ago

There is a lot more to Bollywood than the unguarded glimpses Showtime offers, observes Deepa Gahlot.

Kakuda Review: Neither Scary Nor Funny

Kakuda Review: Neither Scary Nor Funny

Rediff.com1 days ago

Since Kakuda is made for OTT, the film might find its audience of horror fans but it is not particularly scary, and not the least bit funny, observes Deepa Gahlot.

Wild Wild Punjab Review: Sober Version Of The Hangover

Wild Wild Punjab Review: Sober Version Of The Hangover

Rediff.com2 days ago

This is the kind of film to watch with friends and maybe a six-pack. It has some risqu bits but nothing so vulgar that the pause button would need to be hit if Mummyji walks into the room, notes Deepa Gahlot.

Mirzapur 3 Review: Too Much Gore

Mirzapur 3 Review: Too Much Gore

Rediff.com7 days ago

Pankaj Tripathi anchored the first two seasons with his performance. Here, he is made to sit it out for most of the show, and none of the actors, except for a fiery Ali Fazal, have the charisma to hold the viewer's attention, observes Deepa Gahlot.

Paradise Review: Riveting!

Paradise Review: Riveting!

Rediff.com1 Jul 2024

Prasanna Vithanage's Paradise leaves the audience to read between the lines and draw their own conclusions about the frailty of human nature, and how easily violence seizes the most unexpected prey, observes Deepa Gahlot.

Stree 2 Promises More Chills

Stree 2 Promises More Chills

Rediff.com26 Jun 2024

It looks like Stree 2 has been granted a bigger budget for VFX and sound, bringing with it a promise of more chills, observes Deepa Gahlot.

Sights And Dazzle Of Japan

Sights And Dazzle Of Japan

Rediff.com25 Jun 2024

Tokyo -- the songs Japan, Love In Tokyo and Sayonara from the 1966 Hindi film automatically pop up in the mind -- is buzzing and crowded like any other metropolis, discovers Deepa Gahlot. The modern apartment blocks are built cheek by jowl, so close together that one can open the window and borrow sugar from the neighbour in the next building. One of the fears of the Indian traveller is the unavailability of vegetarian food. Every city and town in Japan has an array of Indian restaurants that serve every variety of cuisine, right from Gujarati to Punjabi to Andhra and Kerala meals.

Review: Kota Factory 3 Gets Darker

Review: Kota Factory 3 Gets Darker

Rediff.com21 Jun 2024

The new season takes the students out of their preoccupation with studies to other problems -- jealousy of another's easy success, a blip in a romance, financial crunch, meltdowns, discovers Deepa Gahlot.

Bad Cop Review: Dj Vu

Bad Cop Review: Dj Vu

Rediff.com21 Jun 2024

Bad Cop is not unwatchable. For older viewers, there may even be some comfort in the familiar, notes Deepa Gahlot.

Luv Ki Arrange Marriage Review: Loud Comedy

Luv Ki Arrange Marriage Review: Loud Comedy

Rediff.com14 Jun 2024

If this were a French farce, nobody would have batted an eyelid if the father of the groom and mother of the bride fell in love and wanted to marry. But here, some crude comedy is generated with a dash of melodrama, feels Deepa Gahlot.

Gaanth Chapter 1: Jamnaa Paar Review: Boring

Gaanth Chapter 1: Jamnaa Paar Review: Boring

Rediff.com11 Jun 2024

It introduces random characters, goes on several wild goose chases and is incapable of holding onto any thread of the plot, sighs Deepa Gahlot.

Will Kalki 2898 AD Be A Game-Changer?

Will Kalki 2898 AD Be A Game-Changer?

Rediff.com11 Jun 2024

The Kalki Universe might just take off, but it will still owe its gee-whizery to Hollywood movies, observes Deepa Gahlot.

Review: Gullak 4: Pleasant Watch

Review: Gullak 4: Pleasant Watch

Rediff.com7 Jun 2024

The new season coasts along on the simple anecdotes that make up the piggy bank of family lore; the performances are as wonderful as before, but the sharpness of humour is starting to dull a bit, observes Deepa Gahlot.

Dedh Bigha Zameen: Pratik Gandhi's Show All The Way

Dedh Bigha Zameen: Pratik Gandhi's Show All The Way

Rediff.com31 May 2024

Pratik Gandhi once again proves that he is an actor who can bring any character to life with his dedication to his craft and instinctive understanding of what the role requires, observes Deepa Gahlot.

Aranmanai 4 Review: Dull!

Aranmanai 4 Review: Dull!

Rediff.com31 May 2024

The Hindi dubbed (badly) version of the Tamil hit Aranmanai is out, and it turns out to be lengthy, noisy and mostly tedious, observes Deepa Gahlot.

Savi Review: Anil Kapoor Saves The Day

Savi Review: Anil Kapoor Saves The Day

Rediff.com31 May 2024

Divya Khossla does not have the magnetism to carry a film by herself. If it weren't for Anil Kapoor playing his part with far more gusto than required, Savi would have been tough to sit through, points out Deepa Gehlot.

Panchayat 3 Review: Can Phulera Retains Its Innocence?

Panchayat 3 Review: Can Phulera Retains Its Innocence?

Rediff.com28 May 2024

There are enough threads left to weave a Season 4, hopefully without the dark clouds hovering over Phulera.

Even Manoj Bajpayee Can't Help Bhaiyya Ji

Even Manoj Bajpayee Can't Help Bhaiyya Ji

Rediff.com24 May 2024

A film with a one-line plot, needed a lot more pizzazz, whistle-worthy dialogue, and a large-than-life, invincible protagonist. Karki makes a Rajinikanth kind of actioner (Bhaiyya Ji fights with a bidi in his mouth) but with a realistic soul, and falls between two boats.

Kartam Bhugtam Review: Baffling!

Kartam Bhugtam Review: Baffling!

Rediff.com17 May 2024

If there is any actor who emerges from this wreck with his talent unscathed, it is Vijay Raaz, observes Deepa Gahlot.

Baahubali: Crown Of Blood Review: Intermittently Entertaining

Baahubali: Crown Of Blood Review: Intermittently Entertaining

Rediff.com17 May 2024
