Movie: Ambikapathy Cast: Dhanush, Sonam Kapoor, Abhay Deol, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub and Swara Bhaskar Director: Anand L. Rai Rating: ***1/2 What’s a love story without some fun, heartaches and reality checks? Most love stories of our times pass through these three phases, and by then, either the girl or the boy realizes they’re not meant [...]...

If you enjoy watching good films irrespective of the language, then here is a list I want you to get your hands on. Buy, beg, borrow or steal but please ensure you watch these southern (Tamil and Telugu) films, which I believe are far better than many films released over the last two decades. While [...]...

Music now goes beyond conventional mellifluous compositions. It`s time for some most unexpected sounds mixed with unique beats and meaningless lyrics – a la ‘Gangnam style’ and ‘Why this kolaveri Di’. Some attribute this to technology and others to evolving tastes. The viral success of such new age songs seem to be overshadowing the essence [...]...

Movie: Aftershock Director: Xiaogang Feng Cast: Fan Xu, Chen Li, Yi Lu and Jingchu Zhang Rating: ***1/2 One of the top 10 highest grossing films of China, “Aftershock” isn’t your typical disaster movie, but an effort to shed light on a family that got separated during the 1976 Tangshan earthquake that claimed nearly 2,40,000 lives.

Movie: Man of Steel Director: Zack Snyder Cast: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon Rating: *** As much as I loved Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”, I hated it too at one level where it felt like watching an extended version of Avengers film featuring Superman.

Film: After Earth Director: M. Night Shyamalan  Cast: Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Sophie Okonedo and Zoe Kravitz  Rating: ** “After Earth” is not the archetypal sci-fi film, but it’s a special film: remarkable and sagacious. The futuristic action film is the hero’s journey layered with lessons about fear and danger, hope and despair, father-son bonding [...]...

Movie: The Hangover Part III Director: Todd Philips Cast: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, Heather Graham and Ken Jeong Rating: *** Though a part of the trilogy, “The Hangover Part III” is unique in its own way.

Movie: Iddarammayilatho Director: Puri Jagannadh Cast: Allu Arjun, Catherine Tresa, Amala Paul, Kaajal Vashisht, Brahmanadam, Nassar, Subbaraju, Rao Ramesh, Srinivasa Reddy and Devshi Khanduri Rating: ** Allu Arjun is popularly known as Stylish Star, and this explains why most of his films reek of style, and lack matter.

This song reminds me of so much of Shankar Mahadevan that I couldn’t believe that his son, Siddharth crooned this number because he sounds so similar to his father. Undoubtedly, this track will serve as a very good singing debut for him. Coming to the video, which I think is self-explanatory and in fact reveals [...]...

I generally don’t dissect trailers/teasers, but this teaser of Mahesh Babu-starrer “Nenokkadine” has certainly piqued my interest. What was touted to a loud commercial offering hardly seems like one from the teaser, which looks stylish, crisp and has a feeling of secrecy. And let’s not forget Devi’s fitting music that elevates the teaser to all [...]...
