What a film! I highly recommend watching this. Absolutely LOVED it! Anushka is not just a smart actress but a shrewd producer as well. The full review is up at the Dawn.

Ek Haseen Qatil: NH10

1

In Anurag Kashyap’s tried and tested tradition of ugly characters, sinister plot lines, and eerie aesthetics, NH10 is a rather timely venture on contemporary life in Delhi. As a true dilliwala, I cannot help but admire the visuals, and this is a first reaction to the trailer. Imagine what the actual movie would look like. From Anushka being stuck in a rather lonesome Delhi traffic light to the slowly towering ranges of the Aravalis, there wasn’t a scene that I had not witnessed, in fact, encountered, in my time in Delhi.

Dil Dhadakne Do: A First Look

Zoya and Farhan Akhtar have given us a taste of Indie cinema packaged in a shiny Bolly-wrapper more than once. Take, for instance, Dil Chahata Hai, Luck By Chance, Zindagi Na Milege Dobara, and most recently the short film in Bombay Talkies. Seeing yet another indie-bolly-flick from this sibling duo with its offbeat theme – Punjabi dysfunction at sea is offbeat! – doesn’t surprise me.

DDD

I’d venture forth and say that a dysfunctional Punjabi family (with kutta) on a cruise is worth one watch at least. From what I can see in that poster, the movie does pique my curiosity. After all, how often do you see Bollywood on a cruise? And full marks for giving us Sheefali Shah and Anil Kapoor as the Punjabi mum and dad! Clearly Anupam and Kirron Kher were starting to get a bit annoying.

For a creative, fresh, and unique vibe, Dil Dhadakne Do is making my heart beat just a little bit faster. Here’s hoping the story is just as innovative.

Till we meet for a review.
