| 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 […]

| January 9, 2015 | 0 Comments

  An official remake of Mahesh Babu’s 2003 hit film Okkadu, Tevar is an action romantic thriller, a romantic love story with loads of senseless action, the bone-crunching, pot shattering, brain numbing action with dash of a thrill–what is it after all?..Basically it’s a song-dance-action masala dosa with  hot and teekha sambhar .

The first promo of Action Jackson had a oneliner “ Na Commitment, Na Appointment, only Punishment. How prophetic it has proved.

Now this is supposed to be a remake of Mammooty starrer Malyalam film Pokkiri Raja (The Rogue King). But I wonder how Farhad-Sajid can be credited with the story, screenplay of the film.
