Karan Johar's magic seems to be working of late. Last week his part in Bombay Talkies earned tremendous praise from critics and now his latest production Gippi too garners thumbs up.
Bombay Talkies begins with a young man pushing his father against a wall and angrily declaring that he is a homosexual and not a eunuch. From that moment on, you know that this isn't going to be your regular Hindi movie. Anupama Chopra

Emraan, Kalki, Konkona and Huma have given their best performance. Ek Thi Daayan is a cult horror film, claim the makers. The critics, however, have given mixed reviews to the film. We bring you an insight.
Ek Thi Daayan had the potential to be an A-grade horror film but it’s an opportunity lost. However, I’m very curious about what debutant director Kannan Iyer will do next. Anupama Chopra
Young audiences will soak up plenty of colour and relate to the bunch of goofy characters from prehistoric times. Briskly paced, the escapades of the surviving clan of cave dwellers also manage to provide a family-friendly message about filial duty, co-existence and self-discovery. Rashid Irani
The latest attempt to cash in on the popularity of the youth culture phenomenon Stephenie Meyer yields one of the most dispiriting movies in recent memory. In comparison to The Host, the earlier adaptations of her Twilight trilogy seem positively skilful. Rashid Irani writes.
