Movie Review: Beast

There is no easy way to put this. Vijay needs to reinvent. He needs to rethink how he wants to take this stardom ahead. There can never be a doubt that he is super charming on screen. He would not have been the star he is today without that. He acts well and dances fantastically. …

Movie Review: Badhaai Do

We are not there yet as a society. Not nearly there to accept homosexuality as normal. Hence every film around it is important, as much as any dialogue around it. And while films like Aligarh have managed to push the agenda, a well-made film that can reach out to a larger section of people with …

Movie Review: Satyameva Jayate 2

Here’s the thing. I know I watched Satyameva Jayate 2, but I wonder if the writer actually intended to make Satyameva Jayate 2.

Movie Review: Haseen Dillruba

Haseen Dillruba, uncannily reminded me of Ashutosh Gowariker’s What’s Your Rashee?. While there is barely anything that makes the two films similar on the surface, they are connected by the biggest flaws. For most parts of the Gowariker film, Harman Baweja is seen bride hunting. He meets 12 different girls and has to decide on …

Movie Review: Sherni

Roughly two and half years ago, around November 2018, forest officials in Maharashtra with help from a private hunter had managed to kill a tigress named Avni after mounting a massive hunt. This was in accordance with the Supreme Court’s directive. Following the killing, there were both celebrations and accusations. The hunter was provided with …
