    Hearts and friendships

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 04/11/2016

    » A Karan Johar film usually offers promises of glamorous locales, impossibly beautiful leads, cameos of his A-list buddies, over-the-top songs and what is supposed to be an atomic bomb of feel-goodism. He doesn't let you down within the departments of the first four, but Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (The Heart Is Complicated) is unlikely to stay with you the way his previous decade-defining works have. It's not as tear-jerking or heartwarming, but still does offer a great soundtrack that will cling to your mind unlike its messy plot. (Try keeping the waterworks in when Channa Mereya comes on. You won't.)

    King Khan still rules

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 22/04/2016

    » For some time now it's been a recurring joke that with this movie "Shahrukh Khan the actor" is back. Devoid of any hammy lines and item songs, Fan does offer a story and script that allows SRK to finally go beyond the soulless, commercial rubbish he's been dabbling in as of late (cough, Chennai Express, Dilwale) and return to the dark beginnings that has made him adored by fans from all over the world. Before becoming the king of romance and entering the undisputed realm he reigns today, he has, after all, made a name for himself by depicting a stalker, creep and psychopath.
