  • Bombay Velvet

    This over-written, over-produced film—suffering from what can only be called the ‘curse of the masterpiece’ or a ‘magnum opus complex’—spins around in so many circles at the same time, your mind boggles at the thought of what could be the point of it all.

  • Dum Laga Ke Haisha

    Together the characters in the film bring to life, almost to delightful perfection, the beats and rhythms of genuine small town Indian middle class that isn’t poor enough to be on the street or rich enough to afford some very basic luxuries.
