Mumbai: One good reason to watch this film is that it is based on the inspiring true story of a gritty and fabulous dance group, Fictitious. This group coming from the modest, far flung suburb of Nalasopara, just by the dint of its talent and determination, managed to reach the finals at the world hip hop dance championship in Las Vegas.

Mumbai: Guddu Ki Gun is a sex comedy and better (or worse?) still, it is a preposterous story of the protagonist’s male organ turning into, hold your breath, solid gold! While the premise of the movie itself evokes sniggers, one can’t help but feel a tinge of admiration for the confidence with which the story has been turned into a two-hour film.

Mumbai: The most important thing in a biopic is the actor who plays the role of the personality the film is based on. In this regard, director Prawaal Raman couldn’t possibly have got a better bet than Randeep Hooda to play Charles Sobhraj.

Mumbai: 23 years after Steven Spielberg blew open the man-interrupts-evolution debate with thrilling imagery of trembling water glasses and green Jell-O, mankind returns to the Central American island of Isla Nublar—smarter, greedier and stupider. The Park is now a self-aware corporate-driven World, one that admits, "Dinosaurs aren't enough anymore".

Mumbai: The filmmakers have splurged on the styling in 'Dishoom', but not on the storytelling. Agreed it is a leave-your-brains-at-home entertainer, but some method to the madness would have packed a punch.

Mumbai: How many times have we seen 'the disaster movie'? A hundred? Probably a thousand times. And yet, Hollywood keeps regurgitating the same thing over and over again, at least once every year. Of course they do that because most of these movies are, for some reason incredibly profitable. Because people, for some reason, want to see buildings crumbling.

Mumbai: 'Welcome to Karachi' is an attempt at a political satire with the backdrop of the 'explosive' (literally) situation in Pakistan. Shammi (Arshad Warsi) and Kedar Patel (Jackky Bhagnani) , the Indian version of dumb and dumber, decide to sneak into USA on a boat because Kedar wants to go and his visa gets rejected repeatedly. A freak accident lands them in the heart of Karachi.

Mumbai: The zombie movie genre has been done to, pardon the pun, death. It started in the 70's with George Romero's 'Of the Dead' series and for generations Hollywood has been trying to make the zombie genre profitable for both themselves and for the audiences.
