Sir

Sir starring Tilotama Shome and Vivek Gomber is a very moving debate about the accurate idea of understanding. The class divide is indeed a theme that gets represented in this movie. But the simplistic yet deeply affecting narrative of this love story by Rohena Gera has a very charming optimism that doesn’t skip the social […]

Final Thoughts

Rohena Gera has made a movie that shows us the magic of understanding and empathy in a sensible relationship.

AK vs AK

What I could see in AK vs AK, the new Netflix original directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, was a bunch of film lovers having a ball making a movie. And when that indeed happens, the energy transcends beyond the screen and gives that high to the viewer as well. AK vs AK is a rarity. The […]

Final Thoughts

AK vs AK is one of those rare films where you won't have to compromise your eye for perfection to love a wacky experiment.

The Midnight Sky

At its core, the Midnight Sky, directed by George Clooney, has a very emotional tale to tell you. If we can consider a movie like Interstellar as a Father-Daughter relationship story, a similar layer of emotion drives this movie. But the film based on the book Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton can’t hold your […]

Final Thoughts

The compelling element was missing in the beginning portions, and by the time it gained momentum, things started to look very guessable.

Paava Kadhaigal

When you hear that four directors, who have made movies in their distinctive zones, are making stories in an anthology movie that deals with honor killing, there will be an evident curiosity to know how they will achieve that in their way of storytelling. From someone like Vignesh Sivan, who is known to make fun […]

Final Thoughts

With the filmmakers bringing out their crafty best along with the terrific performances, Paava Kadhaigal is a highly recommended piece of art.

Mank

Before you watch Mank, the new Netflix original movie directed by David Fincher, you must watch the film Citizen Kane. I saw Citizen Kane, which some people consider the greatest movie ever made, very recently. Despite being set in an era with technical limitations, Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane showed impeccable technical quality. Mank by David […]

Final Thoughts

Mank is perhaps David Fincher's tribute to the often less appreciated people in movies; the writers.

Andhaghaaram

At one point in Andhaghaaram, when the character Vinod played by Arjun Das, explains the crazy things happening around him to his girlfriend, she jokingly says visualizing all those things using graphics would cost a fortune. That statement somehow encapsulates why a lot of us would be impressed by V Vignarajan’s supernatural thriller. The story […]

Final Thoughts

Andhaghaaram, on the whole, looked original in many ways. The movie's premise is pretty minimal, yet the engagement level never dropped for the whole runtime.

Mismatched

Mismatched, the new Netflix original that has YouTube sensation Prajakta Koli in the prominent role, is trying to go into the dilemmas of its characters. The emotional insecurities, the need for a relationship, etc., are getting etched out through various characters in the larger picture. But somewhere, I felt the canvas was far too small […]

Final Thoughts

I hope once season 2 gets released, the characters would look more relatable on an emotional level when you binge-watch it.

Ludo

Through his recent movies like Barfi and Jagga Jasoos, Anurag Basu had managed to create a visual style that one can consider as a Desi Wes Anderson style of filmmaking. Jagga Jasoos, even though it was a debacle at the box office, it managed to create a fan following post its theatrical run as it […]

Final Thoughts

Ludo has imaginative writing, the craft of a director, and solid performances. The ease and warmth in the storytelling make Anurag Basu’s Ludo a pleasing watch.
