Khoobsurat is a quirky, modern romantic comedy about what happens when a vibrant, hopelessly romantic physiotherapist meets a handsome young Rajput prince who is the complete opposite of her - and is engaged to someone else. It is a battle of values between two individually crazy families -- one that encourages discipline and self-restraint versus the other, which is all for spontaneity and open- mindedness.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned... The adage has been the essence of several Hindi films over the years. Recall INTAQUAM [Ashok Kumar, Sadhna, Sanjay Khan], OH BEWAFAA [Rajendra Kumar, Anil Dhawan, Yogita Bali], KHOON BHARI MAANG [Rekha, Kabir Bedi]…
Before I begin about the script, I would call out to all my readers to contribute a nominal sum to the writers of this film. They are in desperate need of a civics book to understand the concept of police and cops! Oh, you people don’t want to waste a few bucks! Never mind.
It's easy to gauge the interest of an audience by the frequency of illuminated phone screens during a showing or when the atmosphere inside what should be an attentive movie hall resembles a noisy coffee shop where people have come in for chitchat and cappuccino with a random channel
The high-point of ‘Hate Story’ was the sultry Bengali actress Paoli Dam. She stripped well, and wore her bare skin like a wounded badge of honour. And when she goes after her evil tormentor, we feel like egging her on, because we want to see him bite the dust. Because Dam channeled
Thanks to the overwhelming dose of romance and drama that Bollywood is witness to, thrillers — let alone erotic thrillers — are a genre seldom attempted by the Hindi film industry. On the rare occasion that makers decide to come up with one, it’s usually an official remake.
Hate Story 2, which marks the Bollywood debut of Surveen Chawla and Jay Bhanushali has finally hit the theatres. The film indeed managed to create the right buzz before the release, which was proved by the fact that the trailer crossed more than 4 million views on YouTube, within four days
The story has lots of shades from Uma Thurman's 'Kill Bill', especially in the first hour of the film. These parts are badly adapted and lacked the intensity required, for such scenes. Second half is way better than the first half as the movie now starts focusing over the revenge drama
Terrific would be an understatement; mind-blowing would be putting it into perspective. We might have just witnessed Kangana Ranaut being elbowed out for the Best Actress Award in the coming year by Surveen Chawla who storms the screen like a wounded tigress.
Hate Story 2 is a revenge drama on the lines of Rakesh Roshan's Khoon Bhari Maang and Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill movies. What it lacks is an A-grade star cast. Also, this one is slightly more predictable in pattern. However, the doses of erotica added to the screenplay just to give
Everyone loves a good revenge drama. Whether its television or film, stories about vengeance especially set around a woman scorned in love or physically abused have often caught the attention of the audience across ages. Hate Story 2 takes the basic elements of sex and violence
It took me rather long to bring myself to write this review. For one, I am pretty certain the producers care a hoot about the reviews and critical evaluation. And more importantly, do the people who have already made up their minds to watch this film really care?
Aren't thrillers made with the sole idea to put the viewers on the edge of their seats? Wouldn't you consider intense excitement, the need to build up tension and anticipation of events to happen as some of the basic elements for a successful thriller? If we, as viewers, are so sure about
Yup, this is that kind of a film that pretends to be sympathetic to a woman's revenge saga, but is not shy of exploiting her sexuality as well. Imagine Uma Thurman or Rooney Mara doing an incongruous erotic scene in the middle of their deadly revenge sagas.
If you’ve seen director Vivek Agnihotri’s Hate Story, starring Paoli Dam and Gulshan Devaiya, you are probably expecting bolder erotica, bigger thrill, shocking shades of grey. In those departments, and in most others, Vishal Pandya’s Hate Story 2 is lesser than its predecessor.
The film tells the story of Sonica Prasad (Surveen Chawla), a young woman in an unfavorable situation. Indebted to Mandar Mhatre (Sushant Singh), she is reduced to being his mistress against her will. However, things take a turn for the worse when she falls in love with Akshay Bedi (Jay Bhanushali).
Hard as this may be to believe, it turns out that Hate Story 2 is not the erotic masterpiece we've been waiting for. In fact, it is one of the many Hindi film sequels completely unrelated to its predecessor-except in theme and economics, which means that it is not even the bold,
`Hate Story 2` is woman-oriented revenge drama based on the lines of `Kill Bill` movies. Sonika (Suvreen), a ravishing beauty is the keep of a powerful and wicked politician Mandar Mhatre (Sushant Singh). He exploits Sonika in every way that is possible. But secretly she longs for true love

Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-6
It's tricky experimenting with the horror genre. The intent -- besides narrating a captivating tale -- is to terrify, startle and provide those occasional jolts that one would expect from a film belonging to this variety. A taut screenplay that keeps you on tenterhooks coupled with a nail-biting finale,
The horror genre in Hindi films has had quite the patchy past.So when I first heard that the rights ofPizza -- one of 2012's biggest surprise hits in Tamil cinema -- were sold for a whopping amount to make a Hindi remake, I wasn't exactly stoked.Strong word of mouth and generous
The film’s script is a solid one for a change. While I have not watched the original film on which this is based, at its core it is a great concept. A pizza delivery boy is married to a writer who writes horror stories. She keeps insisting that his moment of fear will come.
The film is a remake of a south Indian hit film by the same name. The storyline and concept is very strong and unique. The film starts on a slow note, but as it progresses, it starts to get gripping and has an interesting middle hour attached to it. The curiosity attached to the film
While Hollywood is obsessed with the genre, it's been a while since Bollywood came up with a 'believable' horror/psychological thriller, which actually gives you the creeps. Barring a few classics like RGV's Bhoot, Kaun and the comparatively recent 13B, the genre stays untapped here.
We see a pizza delivery boy Kunal (Akshay Oberoi) and his writer wife Nikita (Parvati Omanakuttan) living a frugal life in Mumbai. The news that they are pregnant wakes them out of their slumber. Barely settled themselves, how will they pay their way through parenthood?
A pizza delivery boy can be an unwitting witness to some truly bizarre happenings : you go to the doorstep to pick up your pie, he is ready with a hand outstretched for the money, and maybe a tip. You ask him to wait while you find the correct change, he steps in, and the door bangs shut.
Pizza 3D has a good premise for a horror film. Kunal (Akshay Oberoi) is a pizza delivery boy married to Nikita (Parvathy Omanakuttan), a struggling writer who revels in scripting horror stories. Her life revolves around watching spooky films which spooks her husband who has continuous nightmares.
While I’m not able to say right now whether the Tamil film was better than the Bollywood remake, it needs to be noted My Lord that Bollywood has the unique skill of taking everything and anything that is rooted -- characters who have a context and fit naturally in a story -- and uprooting them.
No matter how cynical everyone is about horror films, the genre gloriously survives. It has its own niche fan base. And when it comes to Bollywood, horror films are a spicy platter of thrill, romance and comedy (which, in most cases, is unintentional).
There are horror films that revolve around a one line synopsis or idea and then progress the plot as the characters develop. Pizza 3D has a similar narration where we meet Kunal (Akshay) who is a pizza delivery boy who happens to have disbelief in spirits and ghosts.
Wait, I thought I’d walked into a horror film, having lowered my expectations anyway. Horror, like pure comedy, whether good or bad, has an uncomplicated relationship with its audience. You go in for the laughs in the latter, and to feel frightended at least for a few seconds,
The trailer of Pizza gives out much of the story. Kunal (Akshay Oberoi) is a pizza delivery boy. He and his wife together are trying to make a living. One night Kunal lands up at a woman's (Dipannita Sharma) bungalow to deliver a pizza. Things change when he gets trapped inside the bungalow,
The bread isn’t the only thing that’s flat in Akshay Akkineni’s debut film, a remake of Karthik Subbaraj’s Tamil hit from 2012. Like the films of its co-producer Bejoy Nambiar, Pizza is big on visual trickery and distressingly casual as far as things like plot and credulity are concerned.
Both thrills and logic are in short supply in 'Pizza', remake of the 2012 Tamil super-hit about a timid pizza delivery boy and the repercussions of his supposed brush with the supernatural. The fault lies not in the fact that director Akshay Akkineni employs all the usual horror movie
Kunal, a chocolate-boy-cum-pizza delivery man (Akshay Oberoi), lives with his horror storywriter and social recluse wife (Parvati Omanakuttan) and their relationship seems to lack in spirit till the spirits of a different kind enter their bodies.Kunal makes a pizza delivery to a “haunted” house
Pizza 3D-a namesake remake of Karthik Subbaraj's 2012 Tamil hit-is like a long ride through a quaint 'House of Horrors' cave in a funfair. It engages with a swift fascinating setup, even frightens for a bit, but the novelty wears off soon enough. You quickly find yourself more than a step
What comes to your mind when I say horror? An eerie background score, a girl reverse walking the spider steps (like in Exorcism), a few popping up on your face horror moments (like some of the pop up videos coming on your mobile phones) and some good horror make up for your cast.
Borrowing even scares from Kollywood, UTV Spot Boy and Getaway Films ‘Pizza’ - namesake remake of 2012-Tamil stunner directed by Karthik Subbaraj has nothing lying in beneath for any ‘sixth’ sense in this said ‘supernatural’ arrangement.Thanks to its ‘differently’ peppered ketchups
