Akash starts performing at the bar, his tunes flowing fast and true, thanks to his new muse, Sophie.

Life Of Pi

There are only so many filmmakers fearless or foolhardy enough to tackle a challenging novel, like Yann Martel's Life of Pi, but adaptation specialist Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain) was well positioned to take it on. As a structuring device, he uses an interview between a journalist (Rafe Spall) and Pi Patel (The Namesake's Irrfan Khan), a Montreal immigrant with an unusual back story.


Director Vishal Bhardwaj's first foray into the world of Shakespeare is nothing short of astounding--Maqbool is one of the finest adaptations of 'Macbeth' ever produced. His interpretation, while faithful to the story, is no slave to it, and he spins an enthrallingly distinct version of the Scottish play. The elderly king here is an Indian mob boss called Abbaji, Macbeth is his underling Maqbool, and Lady Macbeth is Abbaji's wicked mistress Nimmi, who goads Maqbool into supplanting Abbaji and claiming her as the reward. And instead of three witches, there are two comical astrologers.

The Namesake

Adapted by screenwriter Sooni Taraporevala from the novel by Jhumpa Lahiri, director Mira Nair's The Nameksake is populated by well-drawn characters and filled with memorable shots and engaging scenes. But in the larger sense, the film is a provocative look at the two sides of immigration: the adjustments faced by a couple who move here from a distant land, and the struggles of their offspring to reconcile their parents' traditional culture with their own distinctly American outlook.

I Have Found It

I Have Found It (Kandukondain Kandukondain) transplants Jane Austen's Sense And Sensibility into an irresistibly musical, infectiously funny and sweetly romantic widescreen wonder world that could only by found in a Bollywood film. An eye-popping riot of brilliant color, show-stopping musical numbers, spectacular global locations and exuberant performances, I Have Found It represents a gigantic leap forward for Southern Indian "Kollywood" movies - the Tamil-speaking cousin of Bollywood Hindi language film.
