Dhobi Ghaat (2011) - Movie Review

Cast: Aamir Khan, Prateik Babbar, Monika Dogra, Kriti Malhotra
Director: Kiran Rao

Actor Aamir Khan's director wife Kiran Rao is getting a lot of kudos for her all-round success with the much-awaited 'Dhobi Ghaat' released Friday, January 21, 2011. The movie is top notch pretty much on all aspects - story, screenplay, characters, cinematography and music. It's a new genre in film making for Kiran. 'Dhobi Ghaat' is about the dwellers of Mumbai metro, but definitely not akin to 'Slumdog Millionaire'. Kiran is subtle but lucid in bringing out the subject.

Yamla Pagla Deewana (2011) - Movie Review

Cast: Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Kulraj Randhawa, Nafisa Ali, Anupam Kher
Director: Samir Karnik

'Yamla Pagla Deewana' is a tribute to the three generations of Deols dominating the masses that make Bollywood what it is today! The evergreen Dharmendra, muscular son Sunny and cute boy Bobby represent three generations in Hindi cinema. The trio does deserve respect for their dedication to cinema, even if this flick does not measure up to the critics' yardsticks. 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' is hilarious, entertaining and a good journey down memory lane for the masses that might be Deol fans and families going to see it together.

No One Killed Jessica (2011) - Movie Review

Cast: Vidya Balan, Rani Mukerji, Neil Bhoopalam, Myra, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub
Director: Rajkumar Gupta

'No One Killed Jessica' is a movie based on true story of a crude murder of a pretty and socialite girl in Delhi by a power hungry neo rich youth on the one hand, and that of an equally determined young sister struggling to get justice, on the other. And, film director Raj Kumar Gupta of the 'Aamir' fame leaves no stone unturned to portray the event as emotionally as possible with the help of his screenplay and dialogues aided by excellent performances of the main as well as the supporting cast. Hence, the movie deserves a watch.
