Koodasha

Aswin Bharadwaj S

As a lot of you will be judging the review by just looking at the rating part, let me just say that Koodasha is a movie that has the possibility to work for you as it isn’t entirely typical. Yes, it is a lot confusing at certain points and a lot preachy too, but the …




Baazaar

Aswin Bharadwaj S

There is a fair enough mixture of right and wrong in the second half of the movie Baazaar that gives it a little bit of respectability. This Desi wolf of Wall Street is an extremely loud and dramatic depiction of the crooked world of stocks. While for a majority of its runtime we might feel …

With classic cheesiness and cluelessness in writing making a mess, Namaste England is one …




Sandakozhi 2

Aswin Bharadwaj S

The new Linguswami movie Sandakozhi 2 isn’t a bad film. It’s all clichéd and predictable, yet there is a sense of engagement due to the treatment style. The overly eccentric violent saga is a passable one time watch with occasional moments of commercial high and same amount of typical Tamil masala exaggerations. The festival in …




Badhaai Ho

Aswin Bharadwaj S

The new movie Badhaai Ho directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma may not be a great film in terms of plot, but the happiness it provides at the end is really overwhelming. Addressing the approach of the society towards late accidental pregnancy in a humorous way, Badhaai Ho isn’t just about humor. And what is there …
