Thugs Of Hindostan

Aswin Bharadwaj S

When the trailer of Thugs of Hindostan came, there was a conversation about the movie being a rip off of the famous Hollywood franchise Pirates of the Caribbean.  Well after watching the movie I can definitely say that POTC is a huge inspiration for this movie and especially for designing the character of Firangi played …




Baazaar

Aswin Bharadwaj S

There is a fair enough mixture of right and wrong in the second half of the movie Baazaar that gives it a little bit of respectability. This Desi wolf of Wall Street is an extremely loud and dramatic depiction of the crooked world of stocks. While for a majority of its runtime we might feel …




Namaste England

When dumb characters and ancient writing become the supporting elements for a stupid plot, it can never give you entertainment.

You can sense a lot of patterns in the scripting that we have seen in films about entrepreneurs. But despite all those seemingly negative things I loved the film because of its earnestness. Sui Dhaaga isn’t novel …







Manmarziyan

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Love triangles have always been a favorite of Bollywood and what is so refreshing about Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyan is the fact that it doesn’t constrain itself into the cage of morality or character sanctity. Through three flawed humane characters, this script by Kanika Dhillon reinvents the genre in a deeply affecting way. By addressing the …
