Ittefaq Film Review: Nothing Coincidental About It

| November 4, 2017 | 0 Comments

My personal opinion is that suspense thrillers should not be remade.Reason is simple. Suspense is known,mystery is already solved.So even the best of starcast giving best of the performances in a remake have cosmetic value. Ittefaq touted and promoted as a remake of 1969 movie from House of BR, is thankfully, not a remake. Just […]

He is no quintessential Archie. He is neither a college bully nor a full blown spoiled brat. He does not know the art of seduction either. He is none of these individually. But all of these rolled into one. He is a Karan Johar’s creation of a new age Bollywood hero who itself is a […]

Let me in the very beginning make it very clear that Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania- HSKD is no Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge- DDLJ. Its not even a novel attempt to revisit the 19 year old classic romance. In the garb of new-age love-shove, this mish-mash is a masala mix that has been dished out earlier […]
