(By IANS)

Have you ever wondered what they mean when they talk about the chemistry between a screen pair? Watch this delightful ode to the great Indian wedding and it will solve the mystery for keeps.

The super-accomplished Anushka Sharma and debutant Ranveer Singh, quite easily the discovery of the year, whip up a wondrous camaraderie in scenes written with such skill and craft in the film, set in the backdrop of weddings-sheddings in the heart of ‘N ...

Saw 3D

Review (-/10)
(By Brian Orndorf)

Producers claim “Saw 3D” is intended to be very last theatrical chapter of the franchise. While the promotional hyperbole is expected, it seems the men in charge might actually mean it this time, shaping the film in a fashion that brings the events full circle, enticing back fans who jumped ship last Halloween to swim in the fresh waters of “Paranormal Activity.”

Moments of midair ecstasy hold it together and without those peaceful pauses of expression, "Amelia" i ...

It’s strange to recall that 2007’s "Alvin and the Chipmunks" wasn’t just a standard, "it’s winter, get me out of the house" hit, but one of the highest grossing films of that year. Seems Chipmunk fever was waiting for the proper moment to strike back from cultural obscurity.

Two years later we have the goofily titled "Squeakquel," which tries to replicate the…er, magic of the original film by repeating esse ...
