Neeli

Neeli directed by debutante Althaf Rahman is a mixed bag. It tries to be a revenge drama and also a horror thriller where the title persona is looked at as a guardian angel. It has this confusion to be whether a pure genre film that explores horror or whether to be a genre mix by …




The Meg

The Meg starring Jason Statham in the lead role is just another sea thriller that ambitiously tries to be another “Jaws” but due to lack of novelty falls flat by offering a few predictable scares that look good only visually. With a horribly clichéd plot getting executed without any element of surprise, this one is …




Vishwaroopam 2

Even if you look at the story of the latest Mission Impossible movie, the ultimate agenda is diffusing a bomb that can cause a severe casualty.

Just like how we say Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is about the miseries of the wealthy or how some say Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani is a glossy take on …
