What's A Film Without Some Food

From a film critic's plate.

O, Ma! May The Farce Be With You

Oct 02, 2014 Namrata Joshi

When bhakti is at its peak in jangly, sleepless Dilli, not all is all that grim. Not even noise pollution. Sometimes, in fact, it is so bad that it is good enough to make you weep in sheer joy

Million Dollar Arm

A sports film with phony feel-goodness and one that is far from inspirational.

Dhoom 3

Namrata Joshi

Street food gone hopelessly bland, a papdi chaat that tastes more like cold porridge.

Compelling Stories

Namrata Joshi

It seems like interesting times for documentaries chronicling the struggles of people on critical issues. What’s more they have also been able to reach out to the audiences.

'The People In Kolkata Make Kolkata'

Namrata Joshi

'You need to know the people. So when I was writing Kahaani I made sure you are introduced to every single Bengali in the film. Then whether you like them or not is another question.'

A Personal Flashback

Namrata Joshi

04 June, 2010


Namrata Joshi

My misgivings about the film started with the cringeworthy “Roop tera mastana” scene right at the start...

3 Idiots

Namrata Joshi

Could well be the third in the Munnabhai series. Leaves you with a smile and warmth that last long after the film is over.

Movies 2008

Namrata Joshi

The hits and the misses -- the hot bods, the new faces, the more than pretty faces, those on the other side of the camera -- and of the border

23 December, 2008


Namrata Joshi

Save the climax, the Hindi version follows the Tamil original. The remarkable difference is how the marketing genius of Aamir Khan has turned eight pack abs and buzzcut with scar into style statements

Theatrical Terror

Namrata Joshi
