Movie Review: Romeo Akbar Walter

“It’s all a little too obvious”, a character in Robbie Grewal’s “Romeo Akbar Walter” quips while discussing an espionage operation. He might as well be talking about the film.

Movie Review: Junglee

In "Junglee" (Wild), elephants share equal screen space with the all-conquering hero in a tale about preserving forests.

Movie Review: Notebook

In Nitin Kakkar’s “Notebook”, the stunning landscapes of Kashmir prove the perfect backdrop for a less-than-perfect romance story.

Q&A: Adil Hussain and Rajesh Tailang on 'Delhi Crime'

Actors Adil Hussain and Rajesh Tailang talk to Reuters about portraying policemen during the December 2012 gang rape investigation in a new Netflix series 'Delhi Crime’, safety in Delhi and the time when they were mugged.

Movie Review: Kesari

If Anurag Singh had cut down the number of slow-motion shots in his film by even half, “Kesari” (Saffron) would have been at a bearable length. But much like the battle in this period war drama, Singh stretches proceedings interminably.

Movie Review: Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota

Nostalgia and a love of movies shine through in every scene of Vasan Bala's "Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota" (The Man Who Feels No Pain), a wonderfully whimsical, Wes Anderson-style homage to superhero films.

Movie Review: Photograph

Ritesh Batra’s “Photograph” is based on the present but yearns for the past. In the age of mobile phones, social media and fast-paced romances, Batra’s film harks back to Bollywood of the 70s, quaint romances and a Mumbai that is still stuck in time.

Movie Review: Mere Pyare Prime Minister

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s “Mere Pyare Prime Minister" (My Dear Prime Minister) is another one in a long line of Hindi films with the urge to highlight India’s open defecation problem. From Akshay Kumar “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” to Nila Madhab Pandya’s “Halkaa”, Bollywood seems to have discovered that toilets and the lack of them make for a compelling narrative.

Movie Review: Hamid

Aijaz Khan’s “Hamid” is about the unusual connection between a precocious boy and a soldier in conflict-ridden Kashmir. It is a heartfelt - if a little naive - attempt at depicting the futility of war and the consequences of militancy, one that is uplifted considerably because it is narrated from the perspective of a child.

Q&A: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra on ‘Mere Pyare Prime Minister’

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s last film, fantasy romance “Mirzya”, failed miserably at the box office. A year-and-a-half later, the filmmaker, known for hits like “Rang De Basanti” and “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”, is back with a subject that is closer to reality.
