3 IDIOTS (2009)

“3 Idiots” is one of the most iconic Bollywood films of all times. It’s also one of those rare films that were a critical and a box-office smash at the same time.

FUKREY RETURNS (2017)

Fukrey Returns is one of those rare films that is very hard to review as it is so polarizing. While I laughed my guts out in many scenes, there were also patches were boredom set in. Add to that a story that has so many angles and subplots that it becomes hard to justify them…
