Movie Review : Main Aur Charles

“Main Aur Charles” held a lot of promises on two accounts- one, it encountered the story of the serial murderer, Charles Sobhraj infamously known as “Bikini Killer” and two, it had the highly charming and talented Randeep Hooda. Director Prawaal Raman has the perfect mix that most filmmakers die for- a charming lead character, the hide and seek game between the cops and the criminal and oodles of sex and obscenity. Randeep Hooda has finally made his presence in box office this year. He plays Charles Sobhraj in the movie. This is by far his best performance. His depiction of Charles Sobhraj speaks...

Immoral Food Policing

Nearly 20 police officials barged into Kerala House in Delhi after Vishnu Gupta, a Hindu Sena leader, complained that the canteen at the state-owned guest house was serving beef. However, the Kerala House maintained that they served only buffalo meat and had named it “beef”.

My only question to the Delhi police is, “Are you’ll gonna enter our kitchens next!” With 1,813 rapes reported...

Shaandaar Review : Far From Shaandaar

You actually don’t expect a garbage-level movie like Shaandaar from a director like Vikas Bahl. I mean this couldn’t be coming from someone who directed something as acclaimed as Queen. The movie clearly highlights that, “All that glitters is not gold”. The movie was such a let-down that even the combined screen presence of Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt could not keep the audiences captivated. The movie revolves around two rich business families, the Aroras and the Fundwanis, who barter their children for a business deal, the reality being that both the families are at the brink of bankruptcy. The greatest turn-off is the loosely-written...

The guest list comprised of several union ministers, Telangana’s chief minister, K Chandrashekhar Rao and top-notch industrialist from across the nation.
