Bhramam

If someone says that anyone can make a terrific film with a solid script, I will disagree with them and will show Bhramam as an example. This official remake of the Sriram Raghavan black comedy Andhadhun is very much the same in terms of the written content. But what made it underwhelming for me was… Continue reading Bhramam




Lift

The new Tamil movie Lift, which premiered on Hotstar, is a horror-thriller that ultimately wants to educate people about the level of stress through which techies go through. As a movie, it is a half baked attempt, but if you have an uncle or aunt who thinks two people working in the same MNC will… Continue reading Lift




Chehre

Chehre, directed by Rumi Jaffery, is based on the 1956 German novel A Dangerous Game written by Freidrich Durrenmatt. The movie has a very compelling premise where the main character goes through a mock trial by people who used to be advocates and judges in the past. It is presented as a game that is… Continue reading Chehre




Shiddat

Kunal Deshmukh’s new romantic drama Shiddat, starring Sunny Kaushal and Radhika Madan in lead roles, presents itself as this story of crazy passionate love where our protagonist would go to any extent to get his love.

For a lot of people, this will be a series of Dejavu moments. For some, it will be insightful, and for some, this series is almost like a warning.… Continue reading Kota Factory: Season 2




Naduvan

The synopsis of the new Sony Liv release Naduvan is an interesting one. You have the old Saheb Biwi Gangster texture getting a different approach as it gets intertwined with another parallel plot. So, you wouldn’t really wonder why they decided to make this movie. Morally grey areas and the coincidences tightening the thrill factor… Continue reading Naduvan




Raame Aandalum Raavane Aandalum

Raame Aandalum Raavane Aandalum, the Tamil movie directed by Arisil Moorthy, is a mixed bag in terms of treatment. We call our films masala because they don’t really stick to one particular genre, and here, Raame Aandalum Raavane Aandalum is also trying the same with some indie sensibilities. It is a story about animal love,… Continue reading Raame Aandalum Raavane Aandalum




Sunny

Sunny, the new collaboration of Ranjith Sankar and Jayasurya, is a movie that tries to depict the idea of hope and a fresh start. It is set in the Covid 19 reality, and the theme feels very apt for the times we are living in. Towards the end of the film, Sunny is picking up… Continue reading Sunny
