  • Barfi!

    ...for me, Barfi was a singularly frustrating experience there was so much to like, but the film never became more than the sum of its parts.

  • Cocktail

    He (Imtiaz Ali) creates a love triangle that references Archie's comics, the 1980s television show Three's Company and the oeuvre of Aditya Chopra-Karan Johar (foreign locales, decadent Western lifestyle, superior Indian values) and yet feels new.
