Searching

Aswin Bharadwaj S

The new movie Searching directed by Aneesh Chaganty is a spectacular thriller. If you are that aspiring filmmaker who sort of feels that fundraising and making a film is a tough task, watch this movie and it will push you to be innovative with the narrative. It is the story of a father searching for …




The Meg

Aswin Bharadwaj S

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 …

Incredibles 2

Aswin Bharadwaj S

The Incredibles was a fun film with that sarcastic bit in its treatment that sort of spoofed the then existed superhero genre. The rooted story of the movie which ultimately had the togetherness of family as its central idea was a consistently funny one with a breath of fresh air. Even though the new one …
