OMERTA (2018)

Ever since the sparkling Shahid, a Hansal Mehta film has always been a “look forward to” event for me every year. Mehta has not disappointed me until last year’s Simran, which to me was a strictly average outing for someone who has made films like Shahid, Citylights, and Aligarh. Omerta is his latest offering staring…

PADMAN (2018)

I have a friend who is as modern a girl as any of this time and era can be. During a visit to her house, I requested her for a glass of the sumptuous drink that she makes and which I desperately crave for during summers. But on that day, my request met with a…

PADMAAVAT (2018) 3D

Padmaavat has been marred by controversy and has even had its name re-christened. Hence when it finally got the green light to release, the first thing that I was interested to see was whether it was worth the ruckus that it stirred up. The next point of interest was whether it was any good and…

These trials were carried out in the Red…

DANGAL (2016) – Trailer Review

I generally don’t do trailer reviews but I have been waiting for this trailer since the first poster of the film surfaced. Sultan came in between and watching the lethargic action sequences, I kept asking myself weather Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan would be able to deliver a better picture or would it be another Dhoom…

M.S. DHONI : THE UNTOLD STORY (2016)

I would like to start this review by saying that Neeraj Pandey is one of my favorite directors in Indian cinema today. I love almost all his previous films including the Bengali film that he merely wrote and produced (Royal Bengal Tiger). M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story was supposed to be one of my favorite…
