Sex Education: Season 3

What I find fascinating about Sex Education is that they are able to add so much into that series by just being observant of the numerous characters. It might have this outlook of being a teen drama where the young ones are trying to differentiate between true love and casual intimacy. But as the story… Continue reading Sex Education: Season 3




Mumbai Diaries 26/11

Mumbai Diaries 26/11, created and directed by Nikhil Advani and Nikhil Gonsalves, has its share of theatrical filmy moments, which sort of makes it the product of the Bollywood sensibilities. But having said that, there are some really commendable achievements in terms of the craft part of the series. At a time when jingoism feels… Continue reading Mumbai Diaries 26/11




Navarasa

Like any other anthology that got released during the lockdown, the new one in Netflix presented by Mani Ratnam, Navarasa, is a mixed bag in terms of quality. 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

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




Sweet Tooth

The premise of the new Netflix series Sweet Tooth has a deadly virus that sort of divided the world, people wearing masks, infected people getting killed, a category of the new human race getting hunted as they are considered as the cause for this apocalyptic situation, etc. Even though the visual texture of Sweet Tooth… Continue reading Sweet Tooth




Sunflower

Sunflower, the new ZEE5 original series created by Vikas Bahl, is a bloated thriller with no real focus. Bahl and co-director Rahul Sengupta want to create a society of characters. Yet, for a major part of the series, they seem to be uninterested in addressing the fact that the primary layer of the series is… Continue reading Sunflower




Mare of Easttown

Mare of Easttown from Craig Zobel is a solid murder mystery powered by a wonderfully layered script and terrific performances. Happening within the city of Easttown, the story distracts you very smartly and manages to do the extremely tough task of hiding the mystery. With the subplots that humanize the characters very deeply, how everything… Continue reading Mare of Easttown
