Film Companion: Anupama Chopra – 2/5

The 90s are back and it’s not pretty. Once again, heroes are macho, leering Casanovas who make show-stopping entries, heroines are cheerful bimbos who heave and thrust in all directions, villains are strapping bombs to bodies and we are hearing dialogues like – He will take your daughter for a ride. Mooh maar ke chod dega….
