Stree

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Stree directed by Amar Kaushik is a movie written by Raj and DK who are the makers of Go Goa Gone. If you have liked that zombie comedy, this one starring Rajkummar Rao is a double dose of that and I had the loudest of laughter inside a movie hall after a long time. Stree …




Satyameva Jayate

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Masala action is one genre where we seek entertainment and doesn’t really go after the logic of everything. But even that genre has got a considerable push over the time and directors like Shankar and Murugadoss has pushed the envelope to make it look compelling. Milap Milan Zaveri’s Satyameva Jayate is a movie that perhaps the …




Fanney Khan

Aswin Bharadwaj S

They managed to get Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkumar Rao in one movie and yet Fanney Khan was a huge letdown. Based on the 2002 Belgian film Everybody’s famous, Fanney Khan has a severely underdeveloped script that after a point just becomes a feast of illogical events. Baring a few scenes that have …

What …




Sanju

Aswin Bharadwaj S

One question that was there in every pre-release interview of Sanju was that whether it will become a PR work for Sanjay Dutt. I personally wasn’t really aware of the specifics of the life of Sanjay Dutt like the details of the Bombay blasts. I obviously knew that he was arrested for having AK 56 …




Race 3

Aswin Bharadwaj S

First of all, let’s just acknowledge that Race as a franchise wasn’t a phenomenal one. The first two movies had bits which made me do the facepalm and occasionally it became unintentional comedies as well. Even though I wasn’t a fan of those films, I would definitely say they were watchable in a fun way. …




Bhavesh Joshi Superhero

Aswin Bharadwaj S

An artist is someone who responds to the societal flaws through his work, an artist is someone who boldly expresses his politics through his creation and an artist is also someone who manages to do all that through a compelling story. Vikramaditya Motwane, the man who made Udaan, has come up with a desi Batman …
