STAR WARS : EPISODE VIII – THE LAST JEDI (2017) 3D

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the 8th Installment in The Star Wars Saga and follows the exploits of a bunch of character who are all in some way or the other associated with a rebel army that is trying to overthrow an oppressive regime known as the “first order” led by Supreme Leader Snoke…

THE FOREIGNER (2017)

“The Foreigner” starring Jackie Chan in the titular role is a far cry from his comic action films that made him so popular. I was a huge Jackie Chan fan as a kid when I literally watched nothing else other than martial arts films of Chan, Jet Li, and Donnie Yen. However, over the years…

MY COUSIN VINNY (1992)

Funny isn’t a word that you generally associate with courtroom dramas. My Cousin Vinny starring Joe Pesci is one such unique film which is not only uproariously funny but also concentrates on the court case completely shying away from everything else and extracts its comedy from the court proceedings and the men involved in it….

AKSAR 2 (2017)

I watched Aksar 2 because literally, I had nothing else to do. Being in a town that isn’t exactly bubbling with social activities and not wanting to stay inside a hotel room for another second, I decided to re-visit a theater that I had fond memories of as a kid. The Oriental Cinema of Silchar…

TERA INTEZAAR (2017)

I never hate on films neither do I enjoy ridiculing bad films. I watch films to be enthralled by them and even in the bad ones I look for redeeming factors. Sadly, Tera Intezaar is one of those rare films that has not a single redeeming factor about it. It is a terribly written, horribly…

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…

GEOSTORM (2017) 3D

Geostorm has been bombarded with negative reviews by critics and viewers alike and I was very apprehensive going into this film. But it turned out to be quite an enjoyable fare. The film tells the story of a satellite system called “Dutch Boy” that has been made by the US in collaboration with 17 other…

AVENGERS : INFINITY WAR – TRAILER REVIEW

I generally don’t do trailer reviews but some trailers are so insanely good that it cannot be left alone without a word or two. One such trailer is that of the recently released “Avengers: Infinity War”. Marvel has made 14 films till date and each of these films in some way or the other has…

COCO (2017) 3D

It’s irrelevant to speak about the animation quality of Pixar. We know every Pixar film is meticulously animated and they have over the years bordered on turning the animated visuals so life like that we mistake them for the real things. Pixar is also known for its varied color palate. Finding Nemo was one film…

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS (2017)

My favorite film critic of all times, the dear late Roger Ebert once eloquently put that he was envious of everyone who haven’t seen the greats like “Citizen Kane”, “Casablanca” or for that matter “The Pledge” as he felt that they still had such ravishing experiences to experience that he himself had already done and…

TUMHARI SULU (2017)

There is a scene in Tumhari Sulu towards the end, Where Sulochana’s (Vidya Balan) son gets suspended from his school for making a business out of letting his friends watch titillating videos on his father’s phone for a price. The whole family gathers for a meeting to discuss what might be the cause of this…

BAREILLY KI BARFI (2017)

Bareilly Ki Barfi stands testimony to the fact that when you put average actors in the hands of a good director and in a good film they can do extraordinary things. No! I am not referring to Rajkumar Rao or Ayushmann Khurrana. I am referring to Kriti Sanon, who with this film has become one…
