Halahal

When you usually see movies that sort of exposes the corruption in the system, there is a real track that will connect us with the plot, and then there is something dramatic which sort of shapes it as that cinematically appealing idea. What I found unique about the new Eros Now movie Halahal directed by […]




Final Thoughts

Halahal in its totality is gripping, disturbing, and has a tail end different from the usual template.

Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare

Addressing those areas of human emotions, especially that of women, which are considered taboo, was the core of Alankrita Shrivastava’s last feature film Lipstick Under My Burkha. Coming to her new movie Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, Alankrita is yet again giving emphasis on the feelings of the women. The moral dilemma or the […]




Final Thoughts

Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare is a relevant but politically overcrowded movie.

London Confidential

I have heard that during the times of world wars, there used to be mediocre and caricaturish anti-Hitler and anti- Soviet movies that got screened in the US to propagate that hate against the enemy. Heavily jingoistic and largely with no elements of freshness, the only intention was to elate the nationalism in everyone. London […]




Final Thoughts

London Confidential is just a hastily made propaganda film that just wishes to utilize the political climate in the country.

Cargo

From the very first Star Wars-like prologue you see at the beginning of the new Netflix movie Cargo, they are making it very clear for us that the accuracy and logic aren’t really the focus of the movie. Directed by Arati Kadav, Cargo is an odd film that manages to find a connection with you, […]




Final Thoughts

Cargo uses the texture of a dark humor fantasy to depict a lot of human emotions like loneliness, regret, the purpose of life, etc.

Sadak 2

Sadak 2 marks the return of Mahesh Bhatt to the director’s chair after a 20-year-old break. But sadly the melodrama in his storytelling also was last seen 20 years ago. The sequel to the 1991 hit film has only one update that can be appreciated as an improvement, the cinematography. Other than that, this sequel […]




Final Thoughts

Sadak 2 is a dull tragedy with no depth to offer. Flawed writing and inept making make Sadak 2 a tedious experience.

Ram Singh Charlie

Ram Singh Charlie is a movie that talks about the artist inside someone. It ultimately shows you the nonmaterialistic wealth an artist achieves from the relentless pursuit to be able to perform. Co-written and directed by Nitin Kakkar, Ram Singh Charlie is a fiesta of optimism planted in an extremely real world where nothing is […]




Final Thoughts

With a superb performance from its leading man Kumud Mishra, Ramsingh Charlie has enough in it to move you.

Mee Raqsam

Mee Raqsam, directed by Baba Azmi is almost like a less glossy version Zaira Wasim starrer Secret Superstar. In Mee Raqsam, we are seeing the struggle of a father and daughter to live in a narrow-minded society. The movie started off giving me a feeling that it is one more template that would end up […]




Final Thoughts

Because of its statements and the endearing central characters, you won’t sense any sort of regret in watching this movie.

Class of ’83

In a police inquiry scene in Class of ’83, we see a moment between Bobby Deol’s Vijay Singh and a group of youngsters who were once trained by him. The lighting of that scene looked terrific as we saw the face of Vijay Singh in a partial silhouette manner. Once the officers left the room […]




Final Thoughts

Class of ’83 is a movie that just couldn’t take off after setting up the backdrop. The performances are good, but in totality Class of ’83 is a big bummer.
