The Invisible Man

What I found captivating about the new movie The Invisible Man is its minimalism. Even the grandest of setpieces in the movie feels like something that is achievable in a regional language movie in our country. This movie has that nervous energy similar to that of Don’t Breath and A Quiet Place. And the way […]




Final Thoughts

The way The Invisible Man evolves from a sci-fi theme to a psychological drama is pretty impressive.

Birds of Prey

Women telling women’s stories is one term we have been hearing in the recent past about more women directors and writers coming with exciting ideas. All those movies had that peculiarity in terms of craft which made them unique. Directed by Cathy Yan, written by Christina Hodson and coproduced by leading lady Margot Robbie, Birds […]




Final Thoughts

There is a fearless approach in the making of Birds of Prey and I hope DC will preserve that for future movies as well.

Jojo Rabbit

When you begin watching Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, the immediate feeling one will get is that it is a cent percent fantasy satire that will rely only on humor. But as the story progresses, Waititi sort of manages to take the movie away from the mere satire angle and evokes empathy inside us. These days […]




Final Thoughts

If you ask me what I think as the specialty of this movie, I would say it was the fact that it effectively blended satiric storytelling and deeply emotional drama.

1917

1917 is a master class without a doubt. Sam Mendes has made a movie that will make you wonder how on earth they managed to execute that. When I knew about the technical achievements of this movie, a part of me feared whether the “single-shot” approach would affect the emotional depth of the content. But […]




Final Thoughts

This is one movie where you can rave about almost every department in the movie for the quality they have maintained to create such a fabulous cinema.

Spies in Disguise

Spies in Disguise, the new animated 3D movie starring Will Smith and Tom Holland is a movie that is enjoyable but feels very familiar in terms of the way the story progresses. This is that kind of a movie where you will not be bored due to the laughter gags you see on screen through […]




Final Thoughts

Spies in Disguise ultimately follows a very familiar structure we see in most of the fun feel-good animated features.

Jumanji: The Next Level

The first Jumanji movie was a surprisingly entertaining experience for me. The quirks, wits and the meta jokes made it quite an enjoyable popcorn flick that you won’t regret watching. When it comes to the sequel Jumanji: The Next Level, what you miss is the entertainment quotient. If you were giggling and laughing throughout the […]




Final Thoughts

If you were giggling and laughing throughout the 2017 film, this one is lacking that continuous flow of humor.

Ford Vs Ferrari

Watching James Mangold’s Ford Vs Ferrari is one spectacular experience on many levels. The adrenalin rush of hearing the revs of those beasty muscular automobiles, the passion of the characters in the movie towards vehicles and racing, the determination and struggle to achieve the desired result, etc makes Ford Vs Ferrari one extremely satisfying cinema […]




Final Thoughts

This is a story based on real-life incidents and it is one of those believable and nicely layered movies that will make you stay with the characters for a long time after completing watching the film

Doctor Sleep

The Shining by master director Stanley Kubrick had a psychological angle in its narrative. Even though it had that spooky reincarnation theme inside it, we were mostly looking at it as a hallucinated phase of the characters. When the sequel of The Shining, Doctor Sleep began, I faced a major disappointment immediately as the makers […]




Final Thoughts

The content here has so many unique elements that by the time you finish watching the film, the pitch difference between this one and the Kubrick movie won’t be a problem for you.
