Chhatriwali Review | This “Reebook” Version of Vicky Donor Hardly Manages to Create Any Impact

Chhatriwali, the new Bollywood film starring Rakul Preet Singh in the central role, feels like a stretched-out government advertisement that wants to endorse safe sex by encouraging the use of condoms. But the movie directed by Tejas Deoskar has no original ideas to build a story around the theme. For almost 80% of its runtime,… Continue reading Chhatriwali Review | This “Reebook” Version of Vicky Donor Hardly Manages to Create Any Impact

Bob Biswas

Even though he had only a little on-screen time in Kahaani, Bob Biswas, an undercover hitman, was a really memorable character from that Vidya Balan starrer. The idea to make a spin-off based on that character is indeed an exciting one on paper. The attire and body language of Bob Biswas was such that there… Continue reading Bob Biswas

The new Zee5 release Endravathu Oru Naal directed by Vetri… Continue reading Endravathu Oru Naal

Dial 100

The issue with Dial 100 is that at no point this suspense thriller feels like it has any sort of suspense in it. The trailer itself has revealed all the vital plot points, and whatever is left gets shown at a very early stage in the movie. The only thing that makes this Rensil D’Silva… Continue reading Dial 100

14 Phere

The new Zee 5 original 14 Phere had this scope to be that entertainer dealing with caste-based injustices happening in the country. But this movie directed by Devanshu Singh (who co-directed Chintu Ka Birthday) has no real aspirations to create an impact. The caste angle just becomes another trope they use to create a conflict… Continue reading 14 Phere


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
