(all reviews by Muffy St. Bernard unless we tell you otherwise!)
04/01/05 Taarzan The Wonder Car
It's "Christine" with hugs, or "Herbie The Love Bug" with anger-management problems.
18/10/04 Hera Pheri
No, it's not an obscure Japanese form of suicide or the name of a Greek lesbian...it's the story of two men who could never dream of hating each other...but had better get used to the idea!
15/09/04 Ramba, Radha, Rani
The cover of the DVD promises "rib-ticking comedy." When you've got Vivek making fun of a fat woman in your movie, how can it NOT be rib-ticking?

05/09/01 Aan Milo Sajna
A spunky girl charms her way into Rajesh Khanna's heart by acting exactly like his brain-damaged nephew. Also, Bollywood gets a jump on Hollywood with the "bull sodomizes man" comedy routine!
Some films should never have been unleashed on the public. If you know somebody who raves about this film, keep your dog and female relatives away from him.
11/10/01 Agar Tum Na Hote
The funny moments are few and far between when a widower falls in love...with a married woman who looks exactly like his dead wife. As you'd expect, everybody suffers.
Argh, who's that messing with Bollywood? Who's trying to make a cross-over hit? Who can't just leave things well enough alone? And why is Muffy such an intolerant, elitist hog?
12/10/01 Devi Maa
Porridge and margosa leaves! The world of goddess worship is exposed before your dazed eyes as Devi Maa battles one of Doug Henning's disciples.
02/08/04 Half of Dil Chahta Hai (a speculative review)
Three University graduates learn that it's a bad idea to get involved with alcoholics. Muffy learns that it's a bad idea to get involved with defective DVDs.
12/08/01 Dil Se
Haven't we learned our lesson yet? Never love a terrorist!
29/07/04 Disco Dancer
Many kitschy Bollywood mountain climbers consider "Disco Dancer" to be Mount Everest. Why? Let's figure it out, shall we?
One of India's Amazing Fighting Lawyers sets out to rescue Ram and Sita using the only weapons he has: deadly, head-beating fists of legal doom!
27/03/03 Love In Tokyo (screen captures by BOLLYMIKE!)
Absolutely the best film with "Tokyo" and "Love" in the title but has nothing to do with either.
Music, mayhem, masochism, and Melton! Yes, it's Mard, the first historical drama to be set in a totally nonspecific and contradictory period of history.
The story of a princess who became a pain in the butt!
14/02/02 Mr. Bechara
Screwball comedy and crushing melodrama: that's what happens when Sridevi washes up on a beach with amnesia. Add Anupam Kher as her doctor and Anil Kapoor as her reluctant "husband" and things get weird.
21/03/03 Mr. India (screen captures by BOLLYMIKE!)
It's not just a film about an invisible good guy against an ugly bad guy, it's an institution. The kind where they lock you up forever.
29/07/01 Mujhe Meri Biwi Se Bachaao
Bollywood takes on a classic 80's film, stuffs Rekha's clothes with padding, and waits for the excitement to start. Does it?
9/08/01 Muqaddar Ka Sikandar
When people try to escape their fate, anguish doesn't just reign...it pours! Complete with a "Gallery of Despair," for those in need of a downer.
19/07/01 Naag Shakti
South Indian filmmakers come up with a mind-bending epic about snakes, aimed at the snake-worshipping market. Thank you, South Indian filmmakers!
26/02/02 Namak Halal (screen captures by BOLLYMIKE!)
It doesn't get much weirder than this messed-up Amitabh comedy/action film, and that's probably a good thing.
Who will capture the magic jewel? Who will marry Sridevi? Who will win the "Best Male Wig Competition?"
Ram Gopal creates a movie culling moments from some of the creepiest horror films of all time. He even adds some original moments of his own. But the important question turns out to be: is it any good?
31/07/01 Sawan Bhadon
Hindi-a-go-go in the fantasy land of delusional filmmakers! A wicked step-mom, a heinous flesh-peddler, a hairy mole, and two identical thermoses...all that's missing in this one are the munchkins.
Ramesh Sippy sees some James Bond films and wonders, "what would happen if the villain had a big crocodile in his den?"
20/02/02 Teesri Manzil (screen captures by BOLLYMIKE!)
A movie that does justice to the entire genre of wacky 60's go-go films from India! This murder-mystery-comedy virtually splashes off your screen with exuberant happiness.
