Ghoomketu

There is a sequence in the new Nawazuddin Siddiqui movie Ghoomketu featuring Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha that sort of mocks the cheesiness in the typical mainstream Bollywood scripts. In that scene you can sense the satiric aspirations of the director Pushpendra Nath Misra and that should have been the core of this movie. But […]




Final Thoughts

The initial bits of the movie are way too disoriented. The movie somewhere feels like it is desperate to show the viewer that it has a wacky sense of humor.

Mrs. Serial Killer

An overacting Jacqueline Fernandez torturing us for roughly two hours and watching a talented actor like Manoj Bajpayee getting tortured in a horrendous movie for two hours is what Mrs. Serial Killer in a nutshell for me. Writer, director, editor, producer, composer Shirish Kunder is trying hard to make it look like some kind of […]




Final Thoughts

The approach here is so lame that you are in that facepalming zone from the moment this movie starts.

Baaghi 3

The audacity of the director Ahmed Khan to credit himself as the “Action Designer” and director of the movie Baaghi 3, after making all those atrocious abuses of the branch of science called Physics for almost two and a half hours deserves a minimum of two film fare awards. You hear all these conversations happening in the […]




Final Thoughts

Baaghi 3 is what if Balakrishna did his stunts with a believable physique and with the help of better graphics.

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.

Thappad

The title is Thappad (slap) and the trailer reveals that it’s a movie about a woman who decides to file a divorce petition against her husband when he slapped her during a party. In our heads, we will be imagining the movie to have a husband character who has absolutely no regard for his wife […]




Final Thoughts

Through those multiple stories of the women around Amrutha, Thappad also proves the point that moving on doesn’t always have to be associated with the word compromise.

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.
