Babli Bouncer

If I had no clue that Madhur Bhandarkar directed Babli Bouncer, it would have been just one of those forgettable comedies for me. Seeing the sheer blandness in the new Tamannaah Bhatia starrer, one would wonder how a national award-winning director like Bhandarkar thought this was enough to entertain people. With shoddy writing and shallow… Continue reading Babli Bouncer

Chup

I must admit that seeing a movie about a serial killer who kills film critics for their bad reviews was indeed a memorable experience and something I had never anticipated witnessing. R Balki’s Chup has a peculiar premise, and to a great extent, he uses violence and the quirkiness of the thought to make it… Continue reading Chup

Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva

The events that have happened with the development of the film Brahmastra are quite exciting. The idea of a superhero movie by Ayan Mukerji was in the news around 2014, and the movie was officially announced in 2017. Several production delays happened, and the pandemic delayed it indefinitely. And finally, when it was all set… Continue reading Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva

And it becomes even more… Continue reading Cuttputlli

Liger

It is not frequent that you watch a so-called big-budget film and wonder how on earth any studio head could green-light something like this. Liger, directed by Puri Jagannadh, falls in this category, and it is a movie that has zero regard for the intelligence of the audience. With an absolute garbage script that shuttles… Continue reading Liger

Raksha Bandhan

Writers who are totally ignorant of society’s changes in gender-oriented debates can only write something like Raksha Bandhan. The new Anand L Rai film written by Himanshu Sharma and Kanika Dhillon is that ’80s movie that time traveled to 2022. This 110 minutes long Beti Padhao Burden Hatao ad campaign is the movie equivalent of… Continue reading Raksha Bandhan

Cadaver

One thing I find very awkward about certain investigative thriller movies is that in order to spoonfeed the audience about a particular procedure or share a piece of information, they will always make a cop or someone of similar responsibility look like an absolute idiot. Cadaver starring Amala Paul also follows the same style. Cadaver… Continue reading Cadaver
