There’s really not much to spoil here. A lot happens, and yet I didn’t really care about any of it? And I suspect every viewer would feel the same way.

Bhoot Police Review (No Spoilers): The TV Movie Version of Housefull Crossed with Golmaal Crossed With a Little Bit Stree

Huh! This actually felt like a TV movie! Somehow gentler, cheaper, slower, more friendly to commercial breaks and distracted viewing. But very pleasant for what it was, more pleasant and easy than some of the Movie-Movie versions.

Mimi Review (No Spoilers): Nice Light Loving Movie, Surprisingly Little There-There

Well, now I see why so many of you said that I shouldn’t be afraid to watch this movie. It is very pleasant, very light, doesn’t really make you super feel anything. So if you want a real tearjerker deep version of a surrogate story, don’t watch this. But if you want a pleasant timepass that is unobjectionable, this is a nice one.

Vivah Review: A Long Sweet Love Story

I have been so blog-lazy this week. I didn’t even remember my daily posts, because I’m not thinking in terms of days of the week, I thinking of “scrap metal day” followed by “painter day” followed by “plumber day” followed by “movers day” and so on. Anyway, I need to give my mind an escape from the complicated logistics of moving, and Vivah is the BEST escape.

Haseena Dillruba Review (No Spoilers): The Funnest Kind of Sexy Trash

Super fun movie! If you like black comedy and thriller twists, you will like this. It’s also a lot lighter than you might thing, the tone never shifts into depression and misery, it’s all just mystery and surprises and ridiculousness. On the other hand, if you don’t like twists and black comedy, maybe not.

In The Heights Review (No Spoilers): Finally an American Musical Directed By Someone Who Knows How to Direct Musicals!!!

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tony Awards, brilliant songs, forget all of that! Most important thing about this movie is the director, John M. Chu. Who previously directed Step Up 2: The Streets, AND Step Up 3D!!!! Finally, someone hired because they know how to make dance movies, not because they are a big name director.

Radhe Review (SPOILERS): Jackie Shroff in a MiniDress

I saw a new movie! In theaters! Like in Olden Times! And like in Olden Times, I am doing a whole separate “Spoiler” review just in case you want to watch it. If you don’t want to watch it, read this review anyway, I’m gonna get all deep about gender and Delhi versus Bombay and fun stuff like that.

Time to Dance Review (No Spoilers): Makes Student of the Year 2 Look Like Shakespeare

You think “it’s a dumb dance movie! I know it will be bad, no biggie, I have seen dumb dance movies before”. But, you have no idea! It’s so SO bad! The greatest value in it, is that it makes you appreciate the high comparative quality of other dance movies.

Ajeeb Daastaans Review (No Spoilers): Do Not Think You Know Where These Movies Are Going

Well, this was a FASCINATING collection of short films! I highly highly recommend it. Except for the 2nd film which might have been the most interesting, but also has something happen in it that is so bad I suspect it will be triggering for some of you. I’ll SPOIL it at the end of this review so you can decide for yourself and be warned. Even if you can’t watch that movie, you can still watch the other 3!!!!

Roohi Review (SPOILERS): The Superheroine Origin Story I Always Wanted and Never Knew It!!!!

Yaaaaaay, a SPOILERS review!!!! If you just don’t have the energy to watch this movie but are curious about it anyway. Or if you can’t do horror but want to know what it is like. Or if you have seen it and are DESPERATE to discuss. But if you like horror comedies with a feminist message, you can also save this as a special treat and NOT read this review.
