Student of the Year 2

Student of the Year 2 has so many weird things. But the most prominent of them all was mixed martial arts getting called as Kabaddi. There was a recent YouTube video of Karan Johar analyzing a scene from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. And in that video, he was constantly mumbling the word, cringe. I was […]




Kalank

At one point towards the end of the film Kalank, Roop asks Zafar “Tum seedhe Jawab kyun nahi de sakhte?” (Why can’t you give straight answers?) And I was like, excuse me? You should hear yourself talking and perhaps ask the same question to every character in the movie including you. Some of you may […]




Romeo Akbar Walter RAW

In one scene, the RAW chief played by Jackie Shroff tells John Abraham’s Romeo about how RAW functions and he says they will never communicate with their agent in the normal manner and the dialogues will be always indirect through metaphors and other means. But what happens after that in RAW – Romeo Akbar Walter […]




Kesari

In the last half an hour of the movie Kesari, there is a great amount of violence and bloodshed. Akshay Kumar who is great in doing physical stunts makes that gory “one man against hundreds” fight look cinematically appealing. But that’s only the last half an hour of this movie. This is a two and […]




Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota

Vasan Bala’s debut directorial Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is an extremely fresh and hilarious interpretation of the heroics we have seen in Hindi cinema. It is pretty much like watching Deadpool as the story elements are typical yet tweaked like a wacky spoof. With the movie being able to create well etched out characters […]




Photograph

The melancholic Miloni of Ritesh Batra’s new film Photograph is one character that talked a lot with minimal screen moments. Much like his earlier Mumbai based film, The Lunchbox, Batra again plays with the idea of connection between two people who didn’t know each other. Even though it is not as hard hitting as The […]




Badla

I have not seen The Invisible Guest even after knowing that Badla directed by Sujoy Ghosh is an official remake of this 2017 Spanish film. I wanted to go in without any clue of what will unravel and from that point, this Amitabh Bachchan  Taapsee Pannu starrer is indeed an engaging thriller. With the major […]




Sonchiriya

In the beginning, Sonchiriya felt like just another dacoit story with a lot of bloodshed and abuses. But I must say that there is a great technique with director Abhishek Chaubey and his writer Sudip Sharma in building characters and creating empathy towards them. The second half of Sonchiriya is elaborate, emotional, brutal and most […]
