PariWar

If you just go to the wiki or IMDB page of the series PariWar and check the cast of the new Hotstar show, you won’t be able to resist yourself from watching the show. It has Gajraj Rao, Ranvir Shorey, Vijay Raaz, Yashpal Sharma, Abhishek Banerjee, etc in major roles, and almost every member in […]




Final Thoughts

The writing of this show directed by Bheja Fry director Sagar Ballary is extremely lackluster and it just can’t create any sort of excitement to make you look forward to the next episode.

Ratched

I remember watching One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest couple of years back from Thiruvananthapuram Sree theater during IFFK. I went in knowing the fact that this was the film that Priyadarshan got influenced to make Thalavattam. One character that will stay with everyone at the end of the film is that of nurse Ratched; […]




Final Thoughts

It has performances that will impress you and the visual craft of the series is also pretty engaging. It’s just that this empathizing aspect of the story just puts it in a clumsy setting.

Enola Holmes

The pacing structure of the new Netflix film Enola Holmes certainly will remind you of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes franchise. The fast-paced cuts into establishing the title protagonist have that absorbing energy. Then it goes deep into the core part of the story and over the course of events, it regains that initial momentum. With […]




Final Thoughts

With an impressive narrative tempo and a charming performance from the leading lady, Enola Holmes is a highly entertaining experience.

Halahal

When you usually see movies that sort of exposes the corruption in the system, there is a real track that will connect us with the plot, and then there is something dramatic which sort of shapes it as that cinematically appealing idea. What I found unique about the new Eros Now movie Halahal directed by […]




Final Thoughts

Halahal in its totality is gripping, disturbing, and has a tail end different from the usual template.

Time Enna Boss

The moment when you hear that recorded laughter for a not so funny joke, we are given a clear indication about how under confident the makers are about the new Amazon Prime Video show Time Enna Boss. Directed by Super Subu and starring Bharath, Priya Bhavanishankar, Robo Shankar, Sanjana Sarathy, Karunakaran, and Alexander Babu, Time […]




Final Thoughts

Unless you are a reviewer, there is absolutely no reason for you here to watch the show after surviving one or two episodes.

Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare

Addressing those areas of human emotions, especially that of women, which are considered taboo, was the core of Alankrita Shrivastava’s last feature film Lipstick Under My Burkha. Coming to her new movie Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, Alankrita is yet again giving emphasis on the feelings of the women. The moral dilemma or the […]




Final Thoughts

Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare is a relevant but politically overcrowded movie.

London Confidential

I have heard that during the times of world wars, there used to be mediocre and caricaturish anti-Hitler and anti- Soviet movies that got screened in the US to propagate that hate against the enemy. Heavily jingoistic and largely with no elements of freshness, the only intention was to elate the nationalism in everyone. London […]




Final Thoughts

London Confidential is just a hastily made propaganda film that just wishes to utilize the political climate in the country.

The Devil All the Time

The Devil All the Time directed by Antonio Campos is a moody drama that succeeds in building well-etched characters. Narrated by Donald Ray Pollock, the author of the book of the same name, this Tom Holland starrer eventually has that disturbing factor to its credit. Usually these moody coming of age kind of films tends […]




Final Thoughts

The Devil All the Time has these nuances of a thriller, but primarily it is an affecting emotional drama.
