6:55 pm PDT 01/09/2017 By Sachin Bhat

Just when you thought you’ve had enough sifting through the unalloyed dross that Bollywood has been dishing out throughout the year, in comes Baadshaho. Director Milan Luthria tries to pepper it with a patina of wisecracks, or even an apophthegm such as “Jab maut samne ho, toh zindagi ki keemat pata chalti hai” and so on. Yet, a puny story coupled with some insipid on-screen performance easily outweighs them all. Luthria returns to his old stomping ground (after a four … Read More

‘The Dark Tower’ review: A rubble of mismanagement
1:30 pm PDT 28/08/2017 By Sachin Bhat

In yet another ostentatious but ultimately unfathomable sci-fi drivel, Nikolaj Arcel’s The Dark Tower is a towering mess of epic proportions. Based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, the movie is an amalgamation of eight different editions, stuffed in a ninety-minute film that regardlessly feels like a tiring rigmarole. At the heart of the matters is a gunslinger Roland Deschain (Idris Elba) who relentlessly pursues the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), the antagonist who not only kills his … Read More
