An eagle's eye for detailing coupled with some excellent piece of writing is what largely works for 'Masaan', apart from other fine things. Neeraj Ghaywan in his debut film offers a realistic portrayal of the hypocritical society that we live in, which looks at premarital sex between two adults as a taboo, but doesn’t hesitate exploiting it in every other way.

New Delhi: If you think you have to leave your brains at home for a Salman Khan film, be surprised. This one will need you to take your heart along with your brains as well. For above everything else, Bajrangi Bhaijaan sure has its heart in his right place.

Mumbai: Back when 'Despicable Me' came out, kids sort of enjoyed the movie, and adults sort of tolerated it. But there was something common between both camps – the Minions featured in the films were a laugh riot and everyone ended up falling in love with them. They became so famous they now have their own movie, but the final product isn't as amazing as you expect it to be.

Mumbai: One of the tracks in the film, Jiyo Lalla, has a line that goes: ‘Lagake taaron mein tadka, chalo maggi banate hain’. Like the now infamous two-minute noodles, the makers seem to have had an instant recipe for a film -- take a social evil as the premise, stir in some real-life incidents, throw in some juveniles and season it with a bunch of assorted characters. The end result is a hard-to-digest khichdi.

Mumbai: Do you remember back in 2009 when you went to the theater to watch a Pixar movie named 'Up', where you expected a 'cartoon' about a house flying off with the help of balloons, and you ended up sobbing uncontrollably in the first ten minutes of the movie? Do you remember placing that movie in a special place in your heart, and revisiting it every time you're down in life? It's time to make some room in your heart, because there's now a second movie that does those exact same things to you, and it's made by the same people who made 'Up'.
