Rain brings winter chill to Delhi
Thanks to his intense screen presence, Nana Patekar is the one who keeps all the blocks together.
Kakki Sattai seems like a work where money has been spent in a mindless pursuit. In times which appear to be giving a fillip to cop stories, Senthilkumar's film meanders through the life of the honest Mathimaran as he takes on evil.
There are films that you go in expecting to be good. You know what is the real treat? When that film exceeds your expectations and make you go out on a limb and proclaim, in February no less, that Kingsman probably is the most deliciously twisted film of the year.
Been feeling nostalgic ever since Dard Karaara was released on YouTube? Book your tickets right away! Sharat Katariya's Dum Laga Ke Haisha does not disappoint a bit in this arena - that of nostalgia. There is even a guest appearance by the Bollywood singer.
A slap-happy espionage yarn which simultaneously sends-up and pays tribute to the British spy thrillers of the 1960s (notably the Harry Palmer trilogy featuring Michael Caine) as well as the Roger Moore-era Bond capers, Kingsman... stands on its own as a knock-'em-dead pulp fiction.

At the end of Roy, a famous film director named Kabir Grewal is heading to the success party of his latest release Guns III. He pauses and exclaims: Pata nahin yeh film kaise ban gayi? My sentiments exactly, writes Anupama Chopra.
If Anegan is a mishmash of many films that one has seen over the years, the performances are passé. Yes, a new look Karthik may be a novelty, but Dhanush appears to be disinterested in changing his style or his roles.
"Kam Zyada, sahi galat, in sab cheezon ka main hisaab nahi rakhta." Two different characters say this in completely different situations in Roy. To some extent, this dialogue also gives us a peek into director Vikramjit Singh's modus operandi: Somewhere he seems to be telling us that filmmaking is just an indulgence for him... that the final product is immaterial for him.
