Writer-director Sudhir Mishra’s Yeh Saali Zindagi is the most twisted love story you’ll see this year.
Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra’s Yeh Saali Zindagi can be compared to one such tongue-twister. It’s a fairly simple plot interspersed with tricky turns and narrated at a breakneck speed.
While the genre is comfortably familiar, Mishra’s treatment is refreshingly zany. In place of gloss and gimmicks, the director-story and screenplay writer unearths the underhandedness and layers that constitute his protagonists (and there are a whole lot of them, mind you!) with such dedicated precision and subtext, it’s stimulating to stay in sync
On the surface, Yeh Saali Zindagi is a black comedy in a bawdy skin. And even as purely that, it’s wonderfully unrestrained (dead man farting, yes?) and entertaining with its mouthful of zingers penned by Mishra and Manu Rishi — one of the deviously funny lines fame (Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, Phas Gaye Re Obama
Yeh Saali Zindagi needed to be shorter and less flabby. I also wish that Arunoday and Chitrangda were more forceful actors – thankfully Irrfan Khan, Saurabh Shukla, Sushant Singh and a host of other strong performers ably prop them up.

A reporter teams up with the sister of a murdered model in order to bring her case justice.
Based on the murder of model Jessica Lall (1999) in an uptown eatery in Delhi and her sister, Sabrina Lall’s fight for justice, the film showcases contemporary India as it is. The mockery of the legal procedure, the loopholes in the policing system, the corruption in the power circles, the vulnerability of the common Indian: Sabrina’s (Vidya Balan) struggle — powered by the feisty journalist, Meera Gaity’s dogged investigation and the people’s crusade — brings life to newspaper headlines that still haven’t been forgotten.
Gone are the days when the script was the weakest link of a movie and multi-starrers were a sureshot way to success. As the mindsets of audiences change, Bollywood scriptwriters foresee a dignified growth for their kind though problems persist.’Now there is a need for good scripts because people have realised that films don’t work only on stars. There is awareness, but that is not enough,’ Kamlesh Pandey, who scripted ‘Rang De Basanti’ and ‘Delhi-6’, told us.In recent times, Vishal Bharadwaj, Ashutosh Gowariker, Karan Johar, Madhur Bhandarkar and Jaideep Sahni have shown the power of the pen by writing some of the best movies. The point to note is that most of them have directed their own scripts.Filmmaker Raj Kumar Gupta said: ‘Scripts and scriptwriters are getting recognition more than ever. It is being considered the most important element in filmmaking now.
No One Killed Jessica (NOKJ) is a film that unleashes a myriad emotions in you. The hard facts of modern India’s most written about case are well known by almost everybody but the director Rajkumar Gupta’s (he’d already displayed his talent in Aamir) dramatic handling of the crime, the criminals, the crusaders and the victim creates a storm, once again.

Cast: Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu, Rana Daggubati, Aditya Pancholi, Kangana Ranaut, Prateik Babbar, Govind Namdeo
Dum Maaro Dum Movie review
Lust, drugs, mafia and to add a little more spice to it we have Deepika Padukone performing a sensual item number,and it’s all there in Rohan Sippy’s long awaited Dum Maaro Dum.
Your expectations will be failed when you expect a glossy romance, but ofcourse the thrillling elemnet by Ramesh sippy will defenitely win the hearts of people who like action packed movie
The dialogues are snappy, the action sequences are impressive and the songs are hummable. Deepika’s item number feels right and there’s even a cameo by Vidya Balan. The script could have been tighter but with what he has, Rohan Sippy manages to keep you interested for two hours.
