Black Panther

Black Panther feels more of a political film when compared to the other superhero films in the Marvel cinematic universe. The way it demolishes the sexism and racism by taking culture along with it is quite a wonderful site. Marvel has managed to restructure the superhero franchise that has been facing the burn out issue …




Captain

There is no denying in the fact that the earnestness Jayasurya brings in, in his portrayal of a struggling football player is commendable. But debutante director Prajesh Sen’s scripting of Captain, a biopic on Indian football team captain VP Sathyan is focusing too much on the setbacks this man faced, rather than giving equal space …




Pad Man

If you look at the template of the last two Akshay Kumar films, both serve as an advertisement for government campaigns. First one Toilet Ek Prem Katha was for Swach Bharath Campaign and this one, Pad man is for the make in India initiative. In comparison with the former, Pad Man directed by Balki has …

Kamal’s Aami, a biopic on Madhavikutty is more like a visual summary of …

Rosapoo starring Biju Menon and Neeraj Madhav in main roles along with Anjali, is …




Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread is a multi dimensional film in my opinion. This 130 minutes long movie doesn’t reveal its conflict that easily. It takes time and an effort from our end to identify the crisis here and what you get at the end is a mysterious and fascinating love story. The characters in this movie aren’t …




Hey Jude

The ultimate agenda of Hey Jude directed by Shymaprasad is to show us the transformation of an Asperger Syndrome patient. And the slightly disappointing thing is that it is the only area where this movie is failing to convince us. While Nivin Pauly as an actor gives his full to convince the viewer, the screenplay …
