Film: NTR MahanayakuduDirector: Krish JagarlamudiCast: Nandamuri Balakrishna, Vidya Balan, Rana Daggubati, Sachin Khedekar and Nandamuri KalyanramRating: 3/5For a lot of people who watched NTR Kathanayakudu, the first part of the biopic on legendary actor-politician Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, it was a story too good to be true. The lack of drama made the first part nothing more than a grand retelling of crucial moments from the life of a legend of among Telugu speaking people.

Ten years ago, Jasper Cole stepped onto the set of Jorma Taccone's MacGruber, a satirical action-comedy starring TV funnyman Will Forte as a MacGyver-type who gets the opportunity to finally take down a long-time enemy. Cole, who had been working largely in TV up until that point, would play the villainous Zeke. Nearly a decade after the film's release, Cole talks about the cult status the film has garnered, his new projects and why he doesn't mind that the film ended up seeing him ultimately typecast. You've remained constantly in-demand for the better part of thirty years, Jasper - what's your secret? Jasper Cole: Thanks so much. I'm blessed and grateful to still be working after so many years. I was lucky to eventually get "typecast" as a bad guy. I always say it took me years to finally get on any list at all. I hope its my work ethic that keeps me working.

Film: Panipat Director: Ashutosh Gowariker Cast: Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Sanjay Dutt Ratings: 3/5 Stars Ashutosh Gowariker's Panipat brings alive a story of betrayal, loss, and valour. It is tough to depict a chapter of history on the silver screens, and it becomes tougher when it is of defeat. The filmmaker has made a brave choice in this regard and succeeds in delivering a film that is high on action, drama, emotions and patriotism. The might and valour of the Peshwas forms a large chunk of Indian history and has time and again been explored through cinema. However, Gowariker does take cinematic liberties in 'Panipat' and tweaks a few details to put a smile on the audience's face. The plot, as we are aware, is based on the third battle of Panipat fought in 1761 between the armies of Sadashiv Rao Bhau and Ahmad Shah Abdali. The film delves into the intricacies of the historical battle and is a tribute to the Maratha warriors who died protecting their land, their soil. Sadashiv … [Read more...] about Panipat movie review: Kriti Sanon outshines Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt in epic saga
