MGR Magan

Some of us may have had these dreams where everything is absolutely random, and when you wake up, you don’t even know how your neighborhood uncle, Shah Rukh Khan, and Donald Trump were all part of that dream. The script of the new Disney Plus Hotstar movie MGR Magan directed by Ponram, reminded me of… Continue reading MGR Magan




Sooryavanshi

After a point, it becomes difficult to call a particular director’s movie as unimpressive as he has established himself as the director of a specific kind of movie. Sooryavanshi from Rohit Shetty is one more cop-action thriller that just wants to create loudness inside the theaters. Rohit Shetty has conditioned his audience over the years… Continue reading Sooryavanshi




Enemy

Anand Shankar’s new film Enemy starring Vishal and Arya, is a film that wants to place two characters equally powerful against each other. But the problem is with the spoon-fed narrative that intends to explain each and every bit. After setting up the premise, the film goes towards a central conflict that feels way too… Continue reading Enemy




Annaatthe

The first half of Siva’s new film Annaatthe starring superstar Rajinikanth is what if Sundar C directed Viswasam.

If you belong to that category of the audience who thinks that the village dramas… Continue reading Annaatthe

Jai Bhim is a much filmy version that has all these charged-up courtroom dialogues that we only see in commercial films. But there… Continue reading Jai Bhim




Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, the new addition to the Marvel cinematic universe, is typical for sure, but at the same time, it is highly entertaining. It is that classic origin story that prefers to establish the life of its central protagonist comprehensively. Hence, even the main conflict is also happening in… Continue reading Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings




No Time to Die

The pitch of the new James Bond movie No Time to Die is on a highly emotional level. It is not entirely that fast and stylish Bond movie with a flurry of gadgets. This being the last Bond film of actor Daniel Craig, we see the end of that story arch, and the emphasis is… Continue reading No Time to Die




Hum Do Hamare Do

Hum Do Hamare Do, directed by Abhishek Jain, feels more like an assembled urban comedy than a genuine effort to explore any emotion. There are absolutely no surprises here in terms of writing, and some of the sequences are badly overwritten to have that typical Hindi movie melodrama. The excellent cast of the film is… Continue reading Hum Do Hamare Do
