One of my biggest, long-running pet peeves against contemporary Indian cinema is our apparent love for bombastic, wall-to-wall background music. Our filmmakers encourage composers to accentuate every crest and trough in the story-graph with overpowering m

The territory is similar to 'No Man's land' the Bosnian drama that tripped Amir Khan's 'Lagaan' to win the Best Foreign Film Oscar. Unfortunately there's little depth in the drama, the conflict is poorly structured and the ensuing experience is just not affecting.

Have you ever sat in a boring History class and dozed off with the dreary explanation of the teacher about things of the past? If you have, then KYA DILLI KYA LAHORE is one such class where the partition of India, cross-border references and Muhammad Ali

There`s something to be said about a film that takes so many risks with mainstream tastes that it automatically becomes a part of an endangered species of cinema known as Noble Art.;They don`t make movies like these. Not any more. Not too often in the

Nobody is a winner in a war and everbody is a loser. That is the basic essence of Kya Dilli Kya Lahore, where two men from each side are at the border and how their thirst for blood turns into a curiousity for each other's life. Though bit slow and monoto

The anti-war theme the short runtime the stagey enactment of convenient brotherhood makes for a febrile enchantment. But the lack of depth and tension poor exposition and development leave you disappointed as well!
