RAAG DESH (2017)

Raag Desh is directed by one of my favorite Indian directors, Tigmanshu Dhulia and chronicles the story of three officers of Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army who are captured by the British and tried for murder, disloyalty to the British Indian Army and abetment of murder. These trials were carried out in the Red…

TUBELIGHT (2017)

There has been a lot said and done about this film. While it has to be admitted that Tubelight turned out to be a lot lesser films both in terms of business and sheer quality than what was expected, one has to agree that it does deserve a word or two for why it turned…

LAKSHYA(2004)

Lakshya for me was one of the finest Indian war films ever made. It was subtle, it was nuanced and above all it was superbly acted, shot and scored. If you already didn’t know, the film narrates the story of Karan Shergill (Hritik Roshan) who is a lost individual. He decides to join the Indian…
