Dashavtar & 99 – new releases


is an unbearable experience. Watch 10 different classics of this great actor instead of this 10-in-1 film.
DASHAVTAR begins in the ancient times and shifts to 2004. A computer chip containing a dangerous biological material goes missing from a lab in America. A scientist, Govind, well aware of the dangers, launches a hunt for the missing material, which takes him to India.

Himesh Reshammiya’s music is of fast-forward quality. Barring the ‘Mukunda’ track, the remaining songs are hard on your ear drums. The action scenes are very gimmicky.

Of the 10 roles, Kamal Haasan appeals only as the ex CIA agent. However, the makeup looks fake for a few characters. Asin is terrible. She irritates after a point. Mallika Sherawat suits her role. She’s good. Jaya Pradha is wasted. What did she see in this role?
On the whole, DASHAVTAR is a poor show all the way.


99 is an original story inspired by real events. It is as much "What could have been" as it is "What really happened." In other words, it is historical fiction – fiction being the keyword. It spans a few genres; it is slick, fast-paced, realistic and, importantly, very funny.

In this "smart comedy" set in 1999, all the characters are found by a common feeling of being stuck at 99 in life – just one short of a ‘century’ – that elusive thing called "making it” in life!
99 is an unpredictable and hilarious ride spread over two cities with colorful characters, unbelievable circumstances, small-time crooks, big-time conspiracies, fateful car crashes, loads of coffee, a briefcase full of money, a budding romance… …. And a historical controversy brewing in the background
