My review of the film The Woman In Black

Posted by Bhaskar Maji on February 17, 2012 at 4:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Sitting in front of the screen you start wondering, will the lead mesmerise us as he did with the boy wizard series? The character looks failed in the first few minutes as it is difficult to see 22 year old Daniel Radcliffe playing the father to a 4 year old. There are even some sniggers in the sur...

My review of the book When A Lawyer Falls In Love by Amrita Suresh

Posted by Bhaskar Maji on February 11, 2012 at 7:30 AM Comments comments (0)

This is the debut offering of Amrita Suresh, who dreamed of being an author, while she was still a bespectacled twelve-year-old.

No, don’t blame her specs, praise her brain for bringing just another campus love story. New age Indian authors have reached a place where more than 80% novels are love stories and a majority of...

My review of the book Faceless by Tapan Ghosh

Posted by Bhaskar Maji on January 31, 2012 at 1:20 PM Comments comments (0)

 

Dildo in a bin! Who put it in?

Debutant Tapan Ghosh’s faceless starts with the above question. The pleasure tool somehow gets to a neighbourhood dust-bin and when it starts vibrating, the colony members mistake it for a bomb. Next comes a story set in Mumbai which wants you to understand spiritual love?

My Review of the film Ra.One

Posted by Bhaskar Maji on October 26, 2011 at 7:00 AM Comments comments (0)

The AC starts running and the frame starts rolling, we see Shahrukh Khan enter the screen with his own persona and tries to save the Damsel in Distress Priyanka Chopra from the clutches of Khalnayak Sanjay Dutt.

The first half lags a bit but picks up in the second half very well and doesn’t stop afterwards. The VFX work in an Indian ...

My views on WHY THE LOKPAL BILL IS FLAWED.

Posted by Bhaskar Maji on August 23, 2011 at 11:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Is this the single-most-absolutely-effective way of minimizing corruption in this country? Not necessarily. Multiple equally relevant methods and ways can be suggested by experts.

‎1)“Action” means any action taken by a public servant in the discharge of his functions as such public servant and includes decision, recommendation or finding or in any other manner and includes willful failure or omission to act and all other expressions relating to such action shall be co...

My views on great people

Posted by Bhaskar Maji on June 25, 2011 at 10:25 AM Comments comments (0)

All great personalities are 99.0% like you and me. It is the “.01% Divine Spark” that they possess weighs them myriad times more than us. When we idolize a person, we forget that our Hero too is a human being in flesh and blood having normal traits of hunger, thirst, fear, anger, sleep, sex, ambition, avarice, hatred, love and affection. The restrain over these factors is normally of higher degree in Great Personalities. However, they too are bound by la...

Quite a commendable job guys. Better than the Ist one. This one has storyline not solely depending on skin show. I liked the way the story was handled. Story by Mahesh Bhatt and screenplay by Shagufta Rafique clicks with the audience. The story dips just before the Intermission but comes back very nicely.
