Akira quick movie review: Sonakshi Sinha breaks bones, breaks stereotypes

Akira movie cast: Sonakshi Sinha, Konkona Sen Sharma, Anurag Kashyap, Amit Sadh Akira movie director: A R Murugadoss Akira, in Sanskrit, means graceful strength. And that is how you see Sonakshi Sinha in the AR Murugadoss film as she goes about fighting violence against women as well as cliches of how actresses in Bollywood are supposed to be. Sonakshi plays a college student from a dysfunctional family. Short on temper and quick to let her fists do the talking, Sonakshi is a misfit in her small town.

Fitoor — Tabu holds the viewer in her grasp

Of course all the loose ends are tied up eventually, explanations are offered but it is done clumsily and stretches credibility. As is quite clear from its title, Fitoor (Obsession) is a love story. So poor but artistic Kashmiri boy Noor (Aditya Roy Kapur) falls in love with rich and haughty girl Firdaus (Katrina Kaif). They get together, move apart and then come back together again. However, they leave the viewers rather cold and unconcerned despite mouthing some seemingly passionate lines like “Khud se azaad ya to maut karti hai ya ishq (You can get liberation from the self...
