Mee Raqsam

Mee Raqsam, directed by Baba Azmi is almost like a less glossy version Zaira Wasim starrer Secret Superstar. In Mee Raqsam, we are seeing the struggle of a father and daughter to live in a narrow-minded society. The movie started off giving me a feeling that it is one more template that would end up… Continue reading Mee Raqsam




Class of ’83

In a police inquiry scene in Class of ’83, we see a moment between Bobby Deol’s Vijay Singh and a group of youngsters who were once trained by him. The lighting of that scene looked terrific as we saw the face of Vijay Singh in a partial silhouette manner. Once the officers left the room… Continue reading Class of ’83




Khuda Haafiz

When I first saw the trailer of Khuda Haafiz, the feeling I got was that perhaps we may have a movie that would show, how Baaghi 3 should have been to be actually entertaining. But when it comes to the movie, the dullness in the presentation is ridiculously high. In a movie that had Vidyut… Continue reading Khuda Haafiz




Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl

But in the second half of this movie, Jha presents… Continue reading Pareeksha

Despite the hiccups in… Continue reading Lootcase




Raat Akeli Hai

Raat Akeli Hai directed by Honey Trehan is a whodunit that isn’t completely surprising. Well, the trailer of the movie showed us an inspector Jatil Yadav who was completely clueless about the criminal. When it comes to the movie, that cluelessness is definitely there, but the excitement is slightly off. With the help of the… Continue reading Raat Akeli Hai




Shakuntala Devi

When the trailer of Shakuntala Devi dropped, there was this criticism for making it way too cheerful with songs and dance. And then there was this counter-argument of why are we so adamant that biopic should be dark and moody. Well, to be honest, I am thankful to the people who raised both these arguments.… Continue reading Shakuntala Devi
