It’s fun to watch B-grade films! The nonsensical stuff that is dished out by these films can at times provide high octane entertainment! And this can really be enjoyed more if you watch these films in theatres! With this belief and some nice previous experiences, I ventured out to see Happy Husbands expecting lots of fun. However, this time, I was really very disappointed! The film is abound with stupid scenes but none that make you say, “LOL…what a stupid scene…hahahah!”. In fact, the sequences in the flick make you squirm, “Yuck…what a stupid scene…Chee!”
The story of the movie: Jaiveer (Anay) is the unofficial guru for wannabe cheating husbands. Mohit (Mohit Ghai) has a loving wife but off late is finding himself attracted to every other lady except his wife! He shares his problem with his buddy Arjun (Ahwaan) who affirms that ‘this is natural’ and he shouldn’t hesitate and that he should shamelessly cheat on his wife! Mohit doesn’t like the idea and hence Arjun takes him to Jaiveer who turns Mohit into a ‘cheating husband’. Mohit at this point comes across Komal Mazaakar, a rich divorcee and Jaiveer motivates Mohit to have an affair with her. However, soon their life takes a turn and they realize that what they believe and what they are doing is wrong.
Happy Husbands rests on an ‘innovative’ idea-if you really love your wife and attend to all her wishes and demands, there’s no wrong in occasionally cheating on her! Thankfully, the protagonists are shown More >

I’ve often said that ‘small’ or low cost films, very often, have much more to offer than several biggies that thrive on star value primarily; content is a secondary issue for these films. Ticket paying audiences insist on watching good films and that’s where a strong word of mouth plays a vital part these days. Positive feedback can lure viewers even after the crucial opening weekend is over. Films like TERE BIN LADEN, UDAAN, DO DOONI CHAAR, PHAS GAYE RE OBAMA and BAND BAAJA BAARAAT endorse this statement.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
I genuinely believe that the audience for hi-content films is multiplying with each passing week. The viewer is willing to give his/her precious time and invest his/her hard-earned money on a film with substance, which only goes to prove yet again that content is the backbone of business, the low cost or absence of top stars notwithstanding. The day of the underdog has finally arrived.
In the 1970s, Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee popularized comedy films. The trend was carried forward by Sai Paranjpye. Early 1990s saw the emergence of David Dhawan, Priyadarshan and Anees Bazmee proving their mettle with slapstick. First-time director Srikanth V. Velagaleti merges comedy with thrill elements in his debut outing UTT PATAANG and the experiment succeeds to a major extent.
UTT PATAANG is a difficult film to conceptualize, pen and also execute. Besides, it requires More >
Teaching is a noble profession but sadly the nobility is getting worn out. Commercialization has entered this field and the teachers and principals have to adopt ways to sustain which are no longer noble. Paathshaala touches this grave topic but unfortunately, fails to do any justice to it. The intentions of the makers and writers were, well, noble, but the goings-on look completely unbelievable. Even the climax was just okay. A good idea gone horribly wrong!
The story of the movie: Rahul Prakash Udyavar (Shahid Kapoor) joins Saraswati Vidya Mandir School as an English teacher. He was kind and considerate and with such honest qualities, he soon wins the hearts of students and fellow teachers. Very soon, the staff and students are shocked to see certain changes made in the school lifestyle in the name of ‘modernization’ by the school manager Sharma (Saurabh Shukla). When Rahul and other teachers question Sharma, he says that he is merely following the orders of Principal Aditya Sahay (Nana Patekar). He is feared by all but still the teachers brave themselves and question him. But Sahay silences everyone. Teachers feel helpless. Students get stressed out as the changes have increased their activities.
Paathshaala begins well and the first hour has some lovely moments. The intermission point is impactful when the teachers threaten the principal that they would all resign if their grievances are not addressed. But the 2nd half fails miserably to impress. More >
