Freaky Ali, Review: Laddie, caddie, baddie and the golf war comaddie

Golf is not very popular in India. Neither is ice hockey. Cricket is. So you cannot blame Sohail Khan for making these basic changes to the plot of the Adam Sandler film of yesteryear, Happy Gilmore (1996). Sandler was a failed ice-hockey player who gets holed big in golf. It’s 2016. Enter Nawazuddin Siddiqui, a failed male underwear street-vendor who can hit sixers at will, and carries over his tennis ball cricket prowess to the golf course. Freaky? What else? And yes, his name is Ali. ...

user

The big screen, the glamor, the chattering from the back row, the usherettes, the popcorn - all these things are still out there, but today there are many alternative and complementary options. Why is this happening? Is it an inevitable result of the appearance of new forms of media? Does it represent a new way of thinking about movies? One thing is for sure, it’s giving movie lovers a lot mor...

MALICK at Venice, An underwhelming "VOYAGE of Time~ Life's Journey"

by Alex Deleon, < Filmfestivals.com> Terrence Malick's first documentary has been described by the director himself as "one of my greatest dreams". It is a collage film (like Koyaanisqatsi by Godfrey Reggio) that intends to illustrate the birth and death of an undiscovered universe. A film that promises to be highly experimental and perhaps Malick's most ambitious film. The story of the universe itself, with powerful images, from the Big Bang to the Mesozoic era and ...

Island City, Review: Fun and the Gun, Idiot and the Box, BeauT and IT

  Early on in Ruchika Oberoi’s Island City, an IT company Manager reminds his employees that its temporary tagline, the three words, all beginning with F, do not constitute the company’s ‘motto’. The latter consists of three words beginning with O. Three, just in case you missed the point.
