Bannerghatta

If Bannerghatta was released in theaters, I am sure at least one guy in the audience would have screamed at the idiot hero for not speaking up. Bannerghatta wants to feel like a mysterious thriller. But it has no clue about what to become eventually. In the beginning, they have placed certain horror elements to… Continue reading Bannerghatta




Thittam Irandu

SPOILER ALERT! Without revealing a major element in the script, which is also a suspense factor, it will be impossible to review the new Aishwarya Rajesh film Thittam Irandu. So please keep that in mind if you have plans to read the rest of the review. Thittam Irandu is far from perfect for sure. In… Continue reading Thittam Irandu




Mimi

Even though the movie deals with a subject that has got various dimensions in the modern world, Laxman Utekar’s Mimi is a very simplistic movie that wants to entertain and educate. And it will be fair to say that Mimi is not going to change anything here as the simplistic nature makes the movie more… Continue reading Mimi




14 Phere

The new Zee 5 original 14 Phere had this scope to be that entertainer dealing with caste-based injustices happening in the country. But this movie directed by Devanshu Singh (who co-directed Chintu Ka Birthday) has no real aspirations to create an impact. The caste angle just becomes another trope they use to create a conflict… Continue reading 14 Phere




Santhoshathinte Onnam Rahasyam

The movie doesn’t… Continue reading Santhoshathinte Onnam Rahasyam




Hungama 2

If any of you have ever wondered how much actors elevates a scene that is already written, then I would say Hungama 2 is a great tool to understand that. Hungama 2, the latest movie by director Priyadarshan, is a remake of his own classic film Minnaram with an altered climax that falls in the… Continue reading Hungama 2




Sarpatta Parambarai

It’s interesting how Toofaan, Malik, and Sarpatta Parambarai got released on the same platform over a week’s time. I am saying this because while I was watching Pa Ranjith’s new movie Sarpatta Parambarai on Amazon Prime video, I was reminded of the other two movies. Toofaan for the obvious reason of being another movie based… Continue reading Sarpatta Parambarai




Loki

The evolution of the MCU in the OTT space is dramatic and fantastic. While every other superhero movie had this world-saving agenda, the MCU films were able to humanize some of its key characters in a unique way. And with the new Disney Plus original contents, they are now trying to tap into the conflicts… Continue reading Loki
