Crakk Review | Crap Would Have Been an Apt Title That Justifies Its Craft

Crakk opens with a terrible CGI visual of Vidyut Jammwal doing the train stunts, which are pretty infamous among Mumbai Locals. The thing with that visual and the visual effects is that it pretty much gives you a good idea about what you will endure in the next two and a half hours of the… Continue reading Crakk Review | Crap Would Have Been an Apt Title That Justifies Its Craft

Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya Review | A Fun Human Robo Rom-Com With an Underdeveloped Central Conflict

The reason why something like Android Kunjappan worked for me was the fact that it was able to address various aspects of a robot entering our routine life. From the obvious humor to the emotional impact such an unemotional entity creates in our minds was presented very sensibly in that film. When it comes to… Continue reading Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya Review | A Fun Human Robo Rom-Com With an Underdeveloped Central Conflict

Fighter Review | Siddharth Anand’s Sophisticated-Gadar Is Surprisingly Not Bad

When I watched the trailer of the film Fighter, the overdose of hyper-nationalism, especially the dialogue about IOP (India Occupied Pakistan) made me wonder whether I will be watching a sophisticated version of Gadar in this Siddharth Anand film. Well, there is no denying the fact that the movie is playing to the gallery to… Continue reading Fighter Review | Siddharth Anand’s Sophisticated-Gadar Is Surprisingly Not Bad

Main Atal Hoon Review | A Selectively Curated Propaganda Package, Featuring a Standout Pankaj Tripathi

As someone who grew up in the ’90s, I remember Atal Bihari Vajpayee as a political figure who was always standing up for ideas of love and peace. Some have even called him the “right man in the wrong party.” The underwhelming part about the new movie Main Atal Hoon is that the peace-seeking, love-endorsing,… Continue reading Main Atal Hoon Review | A Selectively Curated Propaganda Package, Featuring a Standout Pankaj Tripathi

Merry Christmas Review | Sriram Raghavan’s Slow-Burn Mystery Thriller Is a Delightful Cinematic Experience

The first half of the new Sriram Raghavan movie Merry Christmas is a deliberately bad love story. I was like, why is this looking so odd? How can this be the draft Sriram opted to film out of the various versions he wrote? The first half that sort of establishes this romantic relationship felt like… Continue reading Merry Christmas Review | Sriram Raghavan’s Slow-Burn Mystery Thriller Is a Delightful Cinematic Experience

Three of Us Review | Avinash Arun’s Film Is a Gentle Mix of Melancholy and Warmth

I would say the beauty of Avinash Arun Dhaware’s Three of Us lies in how it injects a sense of hope into the inherent melancholy of its characters. Even in those moments where the insecurity of some of the characters places the movie in a grey relationship drama sort of space, the aim is not… Continue reading Three of Us Review | Avinash Arun’s Film Is a Gentle Mix of Melancholy and Warmth

Kho Gaye Hum Kahan Review | A Timely Gen-Z Update of the Dil Chahta Hai OS

In terms of the structure in writing and the nature of conflicts between the main characters, I wouldn’t say the new Netflix original film Kho Gaye Hum Kahan, directed by Arjun Varain Singh, isn’t trying to achieve anything novel. The movie, co-written and produced by Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar, takes ample time to explore… Continue reading Kho Gaye Hum Kahan Review | A Timely Gen-Z Update of the Dil Chahta Hai OS

Dunki Review | Easily the Weakest Rajkumar Hirani Film With a Skimmed-Through Script

Of late, I have felt that the movies of Rajkumar Hirani have not aged well, as when you rewatch them, the loudness kind of sticks out. Yes, the humor in them has always helped them cover up the glossy and preachy messaging. When it comes to Dunki, he is very much sort of repeating the… Continue reading Dunki Review | Easily the Weakest Rajkumar Hirani Film With a Skimmed-Through Script
