Sunflower

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

Malaysia to Amnesia

I have been hearing this demand from many film lovers that they wish to see an out-and-out comedy movie these days as every film released on OTT platforms was thrillers. Well, that demand is a genuine one as in these challenging times we really need some movies that can cheer us up. Radha Mohan’s new… Continue reading Malaysia to Amnesia

Radhe

It seems like there is somebody in the inner circle of Mr. Salman Khan who has made him believe that Dabangg 3 and Race 3 are “good” entertainers. Looking at the way he is pushing the boundaries of “Kuch Bhi?” in his recent releases, it becomes more and more evident that he has no regard… Continue reading Radhe

Kavalthurai Ungal Nanban

In the early portions of the movie Kavalthurai Ungal Nanban, there are so many compromises one can see in terms of making, as it wanted to look like a typical family movie. For a film with someone like Mr. Vetrimaaran as the presenter, the kind of cheesy romantic bits one gets to see in the… Continue reading Kavalthurai Ungal Nanban

The way Asha counters each patriarchal statement by Sanjay was a refreshing site to watch, and I even thought I… Continue reading Wolf

Krishnankutty Pani Thudangi

When the script isn’t really providing you anything that looks interesting and unique, the efforts in the treatment to attain nobility won’t really reflect. The issue with the new Sooraj Tom film Krishnankutty Pani Thudangi is precisely that. The script written by Anand Madhusoodanan wants to create a space where there are a lot of… Continue reading Krishnankutty Pani Thudangi

Innu Muthal

Innu Muthal, directed by Rejishh Midhila, is a fantasy that neither bores you nor excites you. If you have seen the movie’s trailer, you would understand that it falls in that “Devine Comedy” category. And there is hardly any surprise in terms of narrative when it comes to the movie. There is a cliche deconstruction… Continue reading Innu Muthal

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… Continue reading Kaagaz
