Talaash delivers both as a thriller and a mystery film. The mystery is as hard to solve as it is to predict when Sachin will retire; we heard that Rajinikanth and ACP Pradyuman watched the film together, and even they didn't find the killer before intermission. Speaking of CID, Talaash had the ultimate publicity campaign - they did everything except make Google Search rename itself to Google Talaash on 30 November, and the hype paid off.
Seeing the funny side of every movie is what we do best at the LOL-scars. We start with giving out awards to the characters in the film. Read on to find out who won the Baba Ramdev Award!

As the economy keeps inflating, so do Bollywood collections. In no time, they’ll each be making the equivalent of the cost of one onion! We predict that the upcoming Dhoom 3 will make 300 crore. Here’s why:
Following elections in Delhi yesterday, exit polls point to the fact that the Congress is going to lose, and pretty badly. What a surprise. Not. Considering the Congress’ performance over the past few months, we’re sure pretty much ANYONE could have beaten them. Here are a few examples:

This week, we are gearing up to watch Prabhu Dheva’s next outing on the silver screen, ‘R…Rajkumar’ (RR). Starring Shahid Kapoor, who hasn’t exactly had the best career run in the past few years, and Sonakshi Sinha, the film looks promising.

Yesterday was the season premiere of the fourth edition of Koffee with Karan, and it sure didn’t disappoint. Salman Khan, who was a guest on the first episode, claimed to be a virgin (he may as well have told us that pigs fly – there’s a higher probability of that actually being true)
Bullett Raja is authentic, fun, sometimes funny, violent. Yes, it has its flaws, but which movie doesn't? We found it to be a good addition to its genre, and well worth a light weekend watch. So now, we commemorate those instances when it was unintentionally funny with our LOL-scar awards:
