Sherni, the new Amit Masurkar film after his debut venture Newton has some striking similarities with the Rajkummar Rao starrer. The similarities are largely on the structural side of the script. The central protagonist and their emotional struggle are almost the same here. While the slight caricature tone of Newton made it more of a… Continue reading Sherni

Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar

Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar from Dibakar Banerjee goes through different sorts of treatments.
