Impeccably written, beautifully enacted, frequently funny and charmingly photographed, Le Week-End (2013) is an absolute treat. British director Roger Michell directed this delightful film based on the story by Hanif Kureshi (of My Beautiful Laundrette and the Buddha of Suburbia fame).

Love, lust and regret hang heavy in the decrepit air of Goan village Pocolim that time seems to have passed by. Love Pocolim’s postmaster, the old bachelor Ferdie (Naseeruddin [...]

1. You are a scrotum-scratching chutiya from Andheri, Artesia, Edison or Sunnyvale who thinks if an Indian movie doesn’t start with Chulbul Pandey monkeying around the Bihari moti it must at least end with the blood-curdling scream Bajirao Singham 2. You think Homi Adajania is a kind of musty cheese Parsis smear on the face [...]
