Anupama Chopra’s Movie Review of Tumbbad | Rahi Anil Barve | Adesh Prasad | Sohum Shah
hq02.com

Tumbbad is a mysterious and magical movie. The story spans generations and decades – we begin in 1918 and end a little after Independence. The overarching theme is greed but we also witness corruption and betrayal, decadence and death. And what is it? There is horror and fantasy. But the film also works as a […]

Anupama Chopra’s Movie Review of Loveyatri  | Abhiraj Minawala | Aayush Sharma | Warina Hussain
hq02.com

Loveyatri is a 1990s film being released in 2018. Twenty years ago, Hindi cinema specialized in NRIs, Hindu festivals, Indian values, large families and strict fathers who would invariably let go of their daughter’s hand and say, “Ja beta, jee le apni zindagi.” Loveyatri is all about Aayush. He gets the traditional Bollywood hero entry. […]

Anupama Chopra’s Movie Review of Pataakha | Vishal Bhardwaj | Sanya Malhotra |  Radhika Madan
hq02.com

Pataakha is based on a short story called Do Behnein by Charan Singh Pathik. Vishal, aided well by his actors and crew, creates a colorful, textured world. Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan, who makes her film debut, work ferociously hard to become Badki and Chhutki. Both are fine actors who nail the difficult dialect but […]

Anupama Chopra’s Movie Review of Sui Dhaaga | Sharat Katariya | Varun Dhawan | Anushka Sharma
hq02.com

Sui Dhaaga: Made In India is earnest, simplistic and not entirely convincing. Writer and director Sharat Katariya immerses us into a beautifully detailed world with flesh and blood characters but halfway through, he goes into Bollywood fairy tale mode. Some scenes made me teary and others made me tear my hair out in frustration. (Trailer […]

Anupama Chopra’s Movie Review of Manmarziyaan | Anurag Kashyap | Taapsee | Vicky | Abhishek
hq02.com

Love, it is often said, is a many splendored thing. In Manmarziyaan, director Anurag Kashyap and writer and creative producer Kanika Dhillon offer us a deep-dive into this splendor. For years, I’ve exited Anurag’s films raging with frustration and wondering why he inevitably becomes indulgent. Manmarizyaan is no different. He’s so damn talented but he […]

Anupama Chopra’s Movie Review of Stree | Amar Kaushik | Rajkummar Rao | Shraddha Kapoor
hq02.com

Stree is a Trojan horse. Director Amar Kaushik and writers Krishna D.K. and Raj Nidimoru create a horror-comedy, which turns out to be subversive commentary on the position and treatment of women in India. It’s clever and very funny. With laughs and scares, Stree delivers an important message. Have you subscribed to Film Companion yet? […]

Directed by Jon Turteltaub and starring Jason Statham, this film about a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark is one of those cheerfully cheesy popcorn movies, which you aren’t meant to take seriously.

Anupama Chopra’s Movie Review of Fanney Khan | Atul Manjrekar | Anil Kapoor | Aishwarya Rai
hq02.com

After 38 years of being a leading man, Anil Kapoor has a likability and a weathered dignity that make you instantly care about him. What’s happening around him doesn’t matter – he recently survived the Race 3 trainwreck. The AK principle is at work in Fanney Khan. Even when the film becomes a slog, Kapoor […]
