Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan

I don’t really wish to talk about the craftsmanship in Hitesh Kewalya’s directorial debut, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. It is not because the movie lacks craft, but somewhere I felt it’s a movie that needs an acceptance on an emotional level. If you look at the structure of the Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, you can […]




Final Thoughts

What’s so good about this movie was that for a major chunk of the movie, you will be laughing out loud and clapping your hands for the genuinely funny humor which is there in the writing.

Love Aaj Kal

I am that Imtiaz Ali fanboy who gets moved emotionally every time I see a film like Tamasha or Rockstar. The 2009 version of Love Aaj Kal was one of the most simplistic Imtiaz Ali movies that I don’t really adore much. Like most people, I was also disappointed seeing the trailer of his 2020 […]




Final Thoughts

To all those Imtiaz Ali “Bhakts” like me who have movies like Rockstar and Tamasha in their go-to movies list, the new Love Aaj Kal is definitely worth a watch.

Malang

Mohit Suri is a director who is known mainly for making cheesy romantic movies with a tragic ending. His new directorial Malang where he reunites with Aditya Roy Kapur after the success of Aashiqui 2 is a movie that tries to look like a thriller but in reality, is a true blue Mohit Suri movie […]




Final Thoughts

All I can say is that the trailer of Malang is a highly misleading one. Expect a typical Mohit Suri film and if that expectation prompts you to watch this movie then you may end up not disliking it.

Street Dancer 3D

It becomes a tough task for the reviewer when the movie itself has no real aspiration to be an interesting one. Street Dancer 3D, the new Remo D’Souza dance movie is pretty much what we all sort of expected. Back to back dance sequences with a story that is extremely cheesy and superficial. If you […]




Final Thoughts

Watching 5 episodes of DID is a much better option considering the time and money you will be spending to watch this movie.

Panga

Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari knows how to capture the texture of a middle-class Indian family. Panga, her new outing with Kangana Ranaut is a movie that works for us mostly due to this relatable backdrop element. The idea is to motivate women to strive for that second innings in life which most of them hesitate due […]




Final Thoughts

The light-hearted tone and the earnest performances are the highlights of this Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari movie that follows a very typical template we see in sports-based dramas.

Tanhaji

Hyper nationalism is the flavor of the season and we have been seeing Bollywood revisiting every historical event and characters and showing their valor on screen. Padmaavat, Panipat, Kesari and a few more are there and all of them have pretty much the same thing getting repeated through different characters. I do agree with the […]




Final Thoughts

I feel fatigued seeing so many movies with hyper-nationalism in its treatment and if you are still okay with the cinematic quality of a movie like Kesari, this muddled CGI saga might work for you.

Chhapaak

Just when the audience was getting used to the face of Malti, an acid attack survivor played by Deepika Padukone in Chhapaak, director Meghna Gulzar decides to show us how Malti looked like before she was attacked. And the entire audience reacted to that silent visual with a huge “Uffff”. Even if you are a […]




Final Thoughts

Chhapaak is a genuine and hard-hitting social commentary that one should watch.

Good Newwz

There is a brand of movies that Akshay Kumar has done in the recent past that came as an entertaining package trying to give lectures to people about women’s issues and certain other societal misconceptions. Good Newwz directed by Raj Mehta somewhere falls under the same category. What if subjects similar to Vicky Donor and […]




Final Thoughts

Good Newwz is more like a popcorn flick that you watch, laugh and forget.
