Sadak 2

Sadak 2 marks the return of Mahesh Bhatt to the director’s chair after a 20-year-old break. But sadly the melodrama in his storytelling also was last seen 20 years ago. The sequel to the 1991 hit film has only one update that can be appreciated as an improvement, the cinematography. Other than that, this sequel […]




Final Thoughts

Sadak 2 is a dull tragedy with no depth to offer. Flawed writing and inept making make Sadak 2 a tedious experience.

Final Thoughts

With a superb performance from its leading man Kumud Mishra, Ramsingh Charlie has enough in it to move you.

Flesh

Flesh, directed by Danish Aslam and created by Siddharth Anand is a mixed bag when you look at the total package of the series. A major chunk of this series has it trying to look like a unique and bold take by showing us extremely brutal visuals. But the show that went on production towards […]




Final Thoughts

With an average duration of roughly 40 minutes per episode, this 8 episode series is a passable thriller for those who can handle gory visuals.

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 […]




Final Thoughts

Because of its statements and the endearing central characters, you won’t sense any sort of regret in watching this movie.

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 […]




Final Thoughts

Class of ’83 is a movie that just couldn’t take off after setting up the backdrop. The performances are good, but in totality Class of ’83 is a big bummer.

LockUp

LockUp directed by SG Charles is a thriller that lacks coherence at some of its major moments.  It is trying to set up an interesting plot in a constrained amount of time. But when they tried to give the screenplay the necessarily complicated layers, it felt so unreal. The film was constantly fluctuating between the […]




Final Thoughts

The flawed writing disappoints you at regular intervals of time, giving it the vibe of a wasted shot at creating a better cinema.

Project Power

The new Netflix original movie Project Power is a flashy action flick that has familiar components. The sci-fi elements combined with some sensible sentiments, this movie directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman is engaging for the viewer. But like I said, we are familiar with this kind of story arch and that does reduce […]




Final Thoughts

Project Power is a fast-paced sci-fi action movie that qualifies to be a passable popcorn flick.
