1744 White Alto Review | A Quirky Crime Comedy That’s Definitely Worth a Watch

The last film from Senna Hegde, Thinkalazhcha Nishchayam, was a satire that can’t be called a plot-heavy film. It was a movie that managed to find hilarious instances from moments and characters. His new film, yet another Made in Kanhangad venture, 1744 White Alto, also explores a similar space, but this time in a quirky… Continue reading 1744 White Alto Review | A Quirky Crime Comedy That’s Definitely Worth a Watch

The good thing about Anjaam Pathiraa directed by Midhun Manuel Thomas was that I… Continue reading Anjaam Pathiraa
