You: Season 3

Watching a series with a psychopath as its central character looks pretty problematic when you think about the political correctness aspect of the whole idea. But what is fascinating about this thriller series created by Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti is that they managed to develop a genuine curiosity in us to know how a… Continue reading You: Season 3




Maid

Women who go through emotional and physical abuse in their relationships and struggling even to identify that they are being abused is a reality that many of us might have witnessed. For a third person who observes these events, it might feel very easy to tell them to walk out of such toxic and problematic… Continue reading Maid




Kota Factory: Season 2

Kota Factory, the TVF original which now has a second season on Netflix, is a very raw yet smoothened depiction of the world of competitive exams. 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

While the eldest one in the lot, Priyadarshan, came up with the banalest creation, the young gun Karthick Naren impressed me the most with his grip on… Continue reading Navarasa

While every other superhero movie had this world-saving agenda, the MCU films were able to humanize some of its key characters in a unique way. And with the new Disney Plus original contents, they are now trying to tap into the conflicts… Continue reading Loki




Ray

Somewhere I felt there was an urge to create a closure to every story rather than leaving us with… Continue reading Ray
