Striker
Striker is a film that is made for the Indian audiences, or at least for the Indian who would want some resource material to make a foreigner understand what the urban culture of India is all about.

I dread watching superhero movies.

Anyway, whenever I hear about a superhero movie, I wonder whether it would be as good as Spider Man 3 or will it ravage the fan boy in me like Superman Returns.

Jodha Akbar
Apart from the crisp acting from almost everyone in the movie, what has to lauded is the sets, the attires and the entire atmosphere of an era long forgotten – the Mughal Era. Also, this may be one of the first Indian movies to actually have an authentic looking medieval Indian dresses, not something hooked out from Maganlal Dresswala.

John Rambo
With almost every major movie franchise giving a reprise to their highly successful concepts of the seventies and eighties, it was only far to flick the dust off the Rambo bravado and bring him into the public eye.
