Atrangi Re

Anand L Rai and Himanshu Sharma are two creators who have made some memorable small-town characters. They get the texture of these characters very easily, and even the not-so-great Zero had characters that were fun to watch.

Sooryavanshi from Rohit Shetty is one more cop-action thriller that just wants to create loudness inside the theaters. Rohit Shetty has conditioned his audience over the years… Continue reading Sooryavanshi
