Raja Krishna Menon's adoption of the toothsome Jon Favreau's 2014 film with the same title became nudnik Thursday night itself, when I watched the original.

NEWTON – Rush before it runs away with the Oscar

The film starts with the description of India's Maoist revolution in the naturally rich areas of Chattisgarh.

BAREILLY KI BARFI – Movie Review: A much-needed dessert

From the first scene, till the opening credits roll out, in the duration of around 250 seconds, director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari solely concentrates on introducing her title character (if not the lead) Bitti Mishra (played by Kriti Sanon).

TUBELIGHT – Movie Review: A Superhit Salman Khan in a Superflop Eid Release

Greeting me as I entered the theater were vacant seats and the Kolkata Police ad film on traffic rules. The latter never made this much sense ever.
