Synopsis : It was pretty fast paced definitely than the last two. A lot of questions answered. Couple of really cool moments. It was all about Perrin and Mat and I can say everything is solved. It was a little bit about Elayne too. For full review see my Spider blog.

Following the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne, their butler Alfred became the young Bruce Wayne’s guardian. He has since gone on to become a loyal ally to Batman and is also one of the collection’s white pawn.


One of my personal favourite. Love the main picture of Alfred. I would place him in front of the King himself, Batman. He would always defend his master.

I haven’t watched much Indian films in the cinema. Last one I saw was Ghajini and Salam Namaste and the house was full. This time only less than 10 people arrived to see this one.

I only wanted to see it because of the director. I really loved Omkara and Maqbool. Omkara is my favourite film. Ok, I wanted to see Anuska too and I wasn’t much disappointed.

The first review I read was negative. Then more negativity followed. Only one review was positive but I had made my mind up to see it so I did go.

It is a silly comedy but I guess where alcohol is involved, it is bound to get silly. I do not like silly comedy movies like Golmal and double dhamal. Glamour movies like Dabangg are not my kind too. I like a film with a story and this one had a light story to it.

Imran Khan was just OK. He didn’t shine much but I guess his image of lover boy is getting off. Anuska Sharma was pretty good. I liked her sense of dress and acting was good. Arya Babar, people have praised and he was really good at the role he was given. And lastly the best of the best Pankaj Kapoor stole the show. Really the character he played was complex and he did a great job especially toward the end.

Over all the film was good at times but a couple of points it was downright silly but it can be accepted. I would say Vishal should stick to his usual genres instead of comedy. I would rate this 6 out of 10.

The Black Mask has quickly become one of the most feared villains in Gotham City. His ruthless campaigns of terror have made him one of the Dark Knight’s deadliest enemies. He is also one of the set’s black pawns.


I can see he is going to become one of my personal favourites. Just looking at him made me fall in love with him.
