  • Kaalakaandi - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    If you think a story like Delhi Belly could be replicated or something 'as cool' could be made, Kaalakaandi will disappoint you. Three random stories in one night in one terribly pretentious film that tries too hard. Fails.

  • Aksar 2 - Review by Manisha Lakhe
    The film is a 'sequel' to the 2006 film of the same name. Sheena and Ricky are in this film too, and so are the same convoluted plot about money, seduction and murder. While that film had memorable music, this one has nothing. It has pointless twists...

    Sulochana likes to compete, and she wins at most things. Whether it is a Pressure Cooker for a Radio Call In show or a spoon and lemon race at her son's school. She takes a chance and becomes an RJ too. Her sexy late night call-in job alarms her rath...
