Srikanth Review | A Shallow Showreel Biopic With an Excellent Rajkummar Rao

Srikanth, the latest Rajkummar Rao starrer directed by Tushar Hiranandani, is a biopic that just skims through the bullet points in the life of industrialist Srikanth Bolla. With familiar dramatization elements getting used along with a lot of punch line dialogues, the film is extremely flat in terms of understanding the psyche of the central character. What really works is the performance of Rajkummar… Continue reading Srikanth Review | A Shallow Showreel Biopic With an Excellent Rajkummar Rao

Guns & Gulaabs Review | Despite the Initial Sluggishness, Raj and DK Manage to Land Their Black Comedy Smoothly

Unlike the other creations of Raj & DK, their first collaboration with Netflix, Guns & Gulaabs, takes way too much time to enter that space which you generally associate with their creations. For almost the first 4 episodes of the series, my expectations about the series were going down as the narrative felt very disjoint… Continue reading Guns & Gulaabs Review | Despite the Initial Sluggishness, Raj and DK Manage to Land Their Black Comedy Smoothly

Bheed Review | A Monochromatic Gaze at a Harsh Political Reality

A political film becomes a captivating cinema when it manages to be an absorbing story in the first place rather than being a documentation.

Vasan Bala’s third directorial, Monica, O My Darling, is one delicious dark comedy that manages to be hilarious and engaging despite not having any outlandish suspense. The way Vasan and his co-writer Yogesh Chandekar place human psychology to create situational humor makes the movie unique. With that color palette and staged visual choreography, Monica, O… Continue reading Monica, O My Darling Review | A Delightfully Original Black Comedy

Badhaai Do

What made Badhaai Ho from Amit Sharma so enjoyable was its comedy texture in presenting a movie with a heartwarming ending. Badhaai Do, the spiritual sequel to the 2018 film, might not be as entertaining as the Neena Gupta starrer. But the topic they have decided to address is more complex, and the margin for… Continue reading Badhaai Do

The White Tiger

The White Tiger, the new Netflix original movie directed by Ramin Bahrani, is that aggressive critique of the class divide in our society. The story is about the determination of someone who knew the uneven social landscape and made the “smart” choice at the right time. It might feel like problematic heroism, but eventually, The… Continue reading The White Tiger

Chhalaang

Chhalaang, the new Rajkummar Rao movie directed by his favorite collaborator Hansal Mehta feels like a movie they both did to relax. Before this movie, Kumar and Mehta have teamed up for films like City Lights, Shahid, Omerta, and Aligarh. But Chhalaang has nothing in common with those movies, and it is mainly because this… Continue reading Chhalaang
