GANGNAM BLUES (2014)

South Korean films have a huge market in India. However, that market is divided into two distinct segments. While one segment comprises of viewers like me who are into dark and gritty fares like “Oldboy”, “I Saw the Devil”, “Memoirs of A Murder” and “Swiri”, the other segment is made up of mostly girls who…

AMERICAN MADE (2017)

American Made starts with a scene wherein, Tom Cruise playing the commercial pilot Barry Seal fakes a turbulence just to wake up his co-pilot ignoring what effects it might have on the passengers aboard. This sequence gives us a firsthand look at the kind of reckless attitude Barry has towards life and the people around…

BABY DRIVER (2017)

Baby Driver is the latest offering from Edgar Wright, the man who brought us films like Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead and The World’s End. Wright is one of the most exhilarating and out of the box directors as far as action films are concerned and if you already don’t know that, then all…

KINGSMAN : THE GOLDEN CIRCLE (2017)

If Kingsman: The Secret Service was crazy and over the top, Kingsman: The Golden Circle takes it a few notches up in terms of everything. It is hands down one of the most outrageous mainstream Hollywood films of the year and a very good one at that. I loved it to the core because of…

YETI OBHIJAAN (2017)

With the first trailer of Yeti Obhijaan hitting the social media, I was going nuts to see this film and it’s not only because of the fact that I am a huge Srijit Mukherjee fan and have loved almost all his films but also because of the fact that this film looked spellbinding. The Bengali…

MISSION CHINA (2017)

Mission China is a film that has garnered unprecedented success among the masses. While the ticket windows have fast put up the “houseful” board, atleast in the first week or so, I was surprised not to find any major reviews of the film. The only reviews that we got were of eccentric Zubeen fans hollering…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Seven (2017)

Irrespective of what many of the series’ fans have to complain about the falling standards of writing owing to the absence of George R R Martin’s hand in the story, the seventh season of Game of Thrones did enough right for me to keep me hooked. The primary reasons for that will have to be…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Six (2016)

Game of Thrones: Season Six has my favorite episode of all the seasons to date. The one I am referring to is the final episode of the season wherein Cersei finally has her revenge on the Sparrows as she blows away the Sept using the same explosives that Tyrion used to overpower Stannis. The scene…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Five (2015)

Tywin is buried and Lancel, one of Cersei’s cousins and her partner in fornication returns, now a devoutly religious man and a member of the “Sparrows”. In Pentos, a despondent Tyrion agrees to accompany Varys to Meereen to support Targaryen’s claim on the Iron Throne. In Meereen, the insurgent “Sons of the Harpy” murder an…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Four (2014)

Game of Thrones: Season 4 has one of the most satisfying if not good episodes of the series yet. The one that I am talking about is episode 2 wherein Joffrey finally dies. I hated this character from the beginning of the show and finally in this series he pays for all that he had…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Three (2013)

Game of Thrones: Season 3 introduces some much-needed heroism and sequences that would make you go limp. What I mean by that are moments like the one in Gladiator when Maximus’ identity is revealed to the king and the masses, like that scene in Braveheart where William Wallace talk peasants into fighting the English with…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Two (2012)

Game of Thrones: Season 2 starts off from where the first season left off. After losing Khal Drogo and his Dothrakis, Khaleesi is trying to make her way through the treacherous terrains with nothing more than her three newly born dragons and a handful of confidants. Robb Stark is making his move on the Lannisters…
