Critics Review



Even as you continue to watch the film patiently, beyond a point, it's nothing to write home about. You eventually sum up your thoughts on the film by borrowing the film's expletive-laden dialogue -, 'experimental ke naam pe chu****?(more)

Stoned Saif Ali Khan Takes You On A Bad Trip

Kaalakaandi is just about Saif Ali Khan's and his amazing performance as a recently turned stoner. Akshat impresses with his wild imagination but unfortunately when a film is bad not the bigges2t of the superstars can save it.(more)
