Scam 1992 – The Harshad Mehta Story

The first five or six episodes of the new SonyLIV original series Scam 1992- The Harshad Mehta Story is your template Rags to Riches story where an aspiring young man’s gutsy moves make him a sensational figure in the history of the Indian Stock Exchange. But what really sucked me into the dirty and complex […]




Final Thoughts

The title and trailer may sound like it is simply focusing on one person, but by the time you finish watching this 10 episode series, it successfully enhances your overall knowledge about the scam.

Ginny Weds Sunny

You really can’t cover-up bad writing by using actors who are extremely talented. The new Netflix release, Ginny Weds Sunny is one solid example of that. Vikrant Massey and Yami Gautam are easily among the finest talents in the Hindi film industry and this movie which in a way sees their entry to the “commercial” […]




Final Thoughts

It was almost like Vikrant and Yami who both grew up in the ‘90s signed this film to enjoy their childhood dream of being the hero and heroine of some of the major blockbusters of that time.

Hubie Halloween

Co-written and co-produced by its hero Adam Sandler, Hubie Halloween directed by Steven Brill is a lame comedy that rarely manages to generate a genuine moment of humor. Narrated as the story of a nerdy guy in Salem whom everyone lookdown as a fun spoiler, the movie is also as boring as its central character. […]




Final Thoughts

Hubie Halloween is a movie that stuffs in average jokes in a simple plot to make it look like a popcorn fun film.

Black Box

Black Box, the latest Amazon original movie, directed and co-written by Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour Jr is almost like the least complex episode in the Netflix show Black Mirror. I don’t mean this in a negative way. Black Mirror was one series that really worked for me because of the depth to which it went to show […]

Emily in Paris

In one scene in the new Netflix show, Emily in Paris, our title protagonist Emily’s coworker Luc tells her his opinion about the escapist American movies that don’t prefer showing life and tries to sell cheesy romantic ideas. Even though Emily in Paris isn’t a tough one to sit through by any means, this observation […]




Final Thoughts

The lovely Emily played by Lily Collins and the escapism Luc criticized can make Emily in Paris that light romantic comedy for a lazy Sunday watch.

Khaali Peeli

From the trailer itself, it was very clear that Khaali Peeli is your run-of-the-mill masala entertainer. And the movie has no plans to confuse you with this tone of the film. The very first scene itself is that high-on-masala moment where the hero walks out of the jail in slow motion showing off his physique […]




Final Thoughts

Khaali Peeli is one of those films where you will sit through the film without any emotions because mainstream cinema has fed you the same thing in zillion other ways.

Ka Pae Ranasingam

When you look at the heavily clichéd and goodness overloaded structure of a movie like Kadaikkutty Singham and also find out that it was a humongous success in the Tamil Nadu box office, one thing becomes very clear; there is that B and C center audience who just love watching that village drama with a […]




Final Thoughts

The movie is excruciatingly long and the good-at-heart part along with an earnest performance of Aishwarya Rajesh are the only things that don’t make me hate this film.

Serious Men

Serious Men directed by Sudhir Mishra based on the book of the same name by Manu Joseph is a very engaging mix of black comedy and political reality. I haven’t read the book, so this review won’t have any comparisons with the source material. The Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer has this quality of consciously moving away […]




Final Thoughts

Sudhir Mishra and his writers make sure that the peculiar ambitious nature of Mani is there even when the movie ends. With Nawazuddin Siddiqui adding his bit, Serious Men is one movie you sho
