Kaagaz

Kaagaz starring Pankaj Tripathi as Bharatlal, a character inspired by the real-life story of Lal Bihari, is a wasted opportunity. Satish Kaushik has narrated a human story in the flattest way possible, forcing the talented Pankaj Tripathi to do the heavy lifting. The story’s intention here is to show us the problems in someone’s life […]

Final Thoughts

Kaagaz is so dull in terms of writing and making that I can't even say that it had a good intention. It's a movie that forgot the fact that it should have worked around that good intention.

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.

The characters that were largely in the backdrop of events in season one is now at the forefront of things.  And what I really loved about the second season is its unpredictability in constructing the power dynamics. What we eventually end up seeing at the […]

Final Thoughts

With well fleshed out characters getting introduced along with some dramatic shifts in the plot, I would say it has all the stuff that someone who enjoyed the first season was looking forward to.

Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl

There are some biopics where the structure of the story might not impress you entirely, but a collective of some moving moments at regular intervals of time will keep you hooked on to the content, and eventually, the movie will become a memorable experience for you. Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, directed by Sharan Sharma […]

Final Thoughts

It works effectively as a human story that talks about gender inequality using the scripting patterns that we are familiar with.
