Chef movie review: This Saif Ali Khan starrer feels derivative

Chef movie review: This Saif Ali Khan starrer feels derivative

Chef movie review: This Saif Ali Khan starrer feels derivative There are some interesting flavours here, but Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Chef’ feels derivative, and doesn’t come together as a fully satisfactory dish. And that’s got to do with the uneven writing. Chef movie cast: Saif Ali Khan, Padmapriya Janakiraman, Svar Kamble, Dhanish Karthik, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Milind Soman Chef movie director: Raja Krishna Menon Chef movie rating: 2 stars Roshan Kalra is a chef who is shown unraveling when we first meet him: frothing at the mouth, and out of a job.

But more than anything else, it is the mawkish sentimentality which overcomes the story-telling. Lucknow Central : w an exact ploy play out a few weeks ago in Qaidi Band. What is going on?

MERI PYAARI BINDU MOVIE REVIEW: PARINEETI CHOPRA, AYUSHMANN KHURRANA’S FILM IS A ‘MIXTAPE’ OF EMOTIONS MERI PYAARI :  The film’s premise — about a mixtape that holds a barrage of memories associated with each song — offered abundant potential. A tune that triggers the memory of a time when you endured or relished a life experience could beautifully blend in with a narrative that feasts on nostalgia. While this one captures most nuggets of the protagonist’s past, it goes on to get a bit tiring towards the end as we…

SHAB MOVIE REVIEW: RAVEENA TANDON-STARRER FAILS TO IMPRESS AUDIENCES SHAB MOVIE : Films that report on the mangled mash of modern-day relationships tend to go the Madhur Bhandarkar way. Laced with shock and awe, they present each ‘objectionable’ association with deliberate judgement and leave little to the imagination. Onir’s Shab features a society doyenne with a penchant for young models, an aspiring model willing to sleep his way to the top (or the bottom), a homosexual teacher on a self-imposed exile from France and a sex worker who wears shades after dark.…

That’s not a knock on Ubisoft’s effort, either. In fact, if anything, it’s a compliment. Online fighter : “For Honor” is unlike any online fighting game I’ve played before. It marries the kind of familiar battle modes found in shooters like “Call of Duty” — Deathmatch, Skirmish, etc. — with…

He is back, this time to question the educational system in our country whereby children are inducted into posh English-medium schools only after a ridiculous amount of time, money and energy are invested into ensuring the…

Sarkar 3 movie review: Ram Gopal Varma returns to form, thanks to Amitabh Bachchan

Sarkar 3 movie review: Ram Gopal Varma returns to form, thanks to Amitabh Bachchan It is easy to see the third instalment of Ram Gopal Varma’s “Sarkar” franchise as an unnecessary carryover of a saga that has lost its relevance and sheen. But “Sarkar 3” rises far above the wasteland of a stagnant crime-drama to give us an insight into a life of outlawry that is richly layered with blood and drama. Bal Thackeray is dead. Long live Bal Thackeray. In Amitabh Bachchan’s persona –steely, gritty, imperturbable, granite-hard and yet…

Raabta movie : Raabta’ stands for connection, but sadly Dinesh Vijan’s 70mm drama doesn’t make one, at least for me, it was a much ado about nothing. First few minutes into the film, and you are left with little hope until saving grace Jim Sarbh (Zakir Merchant) makes his entry. Sushant Singh Rajput is a great actor but in ‘Raabta’ his over-the-top lady killer antics will make you wish why the director had to reiterate that he…

Rangoon movie review: A familiar thriller with lots to like There’s so much to like about Gautham Karthik’s “Rangoon”, despite the familiar path it takes to narrate a story of friendship, betrayal and loss. This is the kind of film where you walk out with the feeling of having watched it before — more than once — but still don’t have major complaints. It’s the kind of film that works solely because it has cracked the knack of winning over audiences with familiar content, and the whole credit goes to…

Tubelight : New Delhi: Expectations from director-actor jodi of Kabir Khan and Salman Khan were sky high after the massive Box Office success of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.

Arizona Sunshine Review: Burning Bright On PSVR Arizona Sunshine made quite the splash when it launched for virtual reality platforms on PC late last year, giving players a chance to blast their way through a smoldering zombie apocalypse. The game is now available for the PlayStation VR, but how well did it translate to Sony’s home console? The short answer to that question is “surprisingly well.” I’ve been impressed with the PlayStation Move controllers since they first launched for the PlayStation 3 several years back and, though it is considered underpowered in comparison…

Sorority House Massacre 2 (Jim Wynorski 1990) Review “It’s Cleavage vs Cleavers and the result is Delta Delta Deadly!” In 1986 Carol Frank wrote and directed Sorority House Massacre, a thinly-veiled rip-off of John Carpenter’s Halloween (much like many of the slasher films of the decade), and while several franchises were pumping out annual sequels, it wasn’t until 1990 that SHM would become a series. Moving away from copycat stalk-and-slash hijinks, SHM2, subtitled ‘Nighty Nightmare’, was a saucy direct-to-video dose self awareness that favoured knowing winks to the audience as…
