@EarnesTaster and @Desperado Thanks for liking the review guys. And Desperado, yes Cohen is also very good, specially the scene where while talking to flower girl he tells her with a straight face that his leg got injured in the war.

I am a huge fan of Martin Scorcese. I liked'The Aviator', loved'The Departed' and was blown away with'Shutter Island'. And maybe it's just a coincidence that all the three films starred Leonardo DiCaprio for who m my respect has grown ever since his role of Howard Hughes in'The Aviator'. But ...Read more

@lovesreading I don't reveal story as a rule because many people don't like the spoilers. However from now on I think I should try to strike a balance.

'Bheja Fry' was a shameless ripoff of French film'Le Dinner de Cons' and in the'finest' trends of Bollywood no credits were given to the original. The film went on to do well and as it usually happens director got infected with'Blockbusteritis', an infectious disease that makes directors think t...Read more

I had seen and applauded his debut work 'Shool' (produced by RGV) and even liked 'Love Ke Liye Kuchh Bhi Karega', though it was clear that comedy was not director E(shwar) Niwas's forte. And after insipid ventures like 'Dum' and 'Bardaasht' I went in for 'De Taali' with modest expectations. N...Read more

No, I dont think they are doing it on minimal margins. And nothing can be an excuse for poor quality control and pathetic customer care. If you can't manage it don't do it on such a big scale. The problem is the attitude of the company. Why have they not given us the power to complain about bad Surely they can rectify their mistakes na. aaryesdee, you are on dot. Rel Retail has thought that they have first mover advantage and that will see them through but they forget that if they get competition only good service will prevail. Read More

Hi. Good review. Short and sweet! I loved Shabana Azmi in 'Rice Plate' though I had almost predicted the 'twist'. 'Pooranmashi' and 'Matrimony' too are good. 'Zahir' in my opinion is trash. I would like to know what you think about my review Enjoy. AbhishekRead More
