Plot:
A grandfather, police officer and a priest join hands to investigate and find a missing child.

Overall Review: Based on korean film: Montage, Te3n takes you into an old man’s journey of the search for truth. Ribhu Dasgupta’s directorial is a suspense thriller set in Kolkata. Te3n featrures industry’s best actors Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui & Vidya Balan in pivotal role. Sadly, movie lacks all the punches of thriler and mystery mainly due to the glitches in script and the thrills. The story or the screenplay don’t set your pulse rates rising or heartbeats racing, but lethargically crawl towards the climax...

A young couple’s marriage challenges the gender roles placed upon men and women in Indian society.

Overall Review:
R.Balki (Director of Cheeni Kum, Paa, English Vinglish) is back with Rom-Com of year 2016: “Ki & Ka”. This time he shakes our senses with the fresh thought that takes on the situation of gender role reversal. Arjun Kapoor (Kabir) plays the house husband while Kareena Kapoor (Kia) plays the wife who is the breadwinner of the house. She is a successful marketing professional. The love story between Arjun and Kareena is thankfully kept simple, which is exactly what makes Ki & Ka more beautiful. It is a love story with a difference...

Review: Tamasha

Tamasha

Tamasha

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Duration: 139 minutes
Language: Hindi
India Release Date: 27-NOV-2015

Plot:
Based in France, this unusual fairy tale unfolds the lives of a nomad and a tourist who gradually develop fondness for each other as they orchestrate ‘Tamashas’ all across the island.

Overall Review:
Know Yourself…Find Your Identity!!! This is how Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha is narrated in the form of 4 stories viz: Teja Ka Sona / Ishqawala Love / Andar Ki Baat & Don Returns. But this narrative style is of a kind which will be loved by elite and not appreciated too much by the commercial audience as at times it is a bit confusing as overlapping scenes have been used to further the drama. Tag Line that says: Why Always The Same Story? holds true...

responsibilities and his kingdom, while his step brother plans to steal the throne from him. But things are changed when the king finds out the common man who looks exactly like him and they change their identities with each other temporarily.

Overall Review:
Loosely adapted from movie: The Prisoner of Zenda, PRDP is quintessential family film for all age-groups. The film has been shot against a royal backdrop. It is about family, love and friendship (Success formula of Barjatya Team) but this Prem fails to deliver what HAHK did two decades ago mainly because of loose script...
