Movie Review: Raazi

Meghana Gulzar's making a name for herself in tackling the tough topics people talk about, wonder about but don't always want to dramatize for a Bollywood consumer; their usual diet being movie that have 5 songs, dancing on mountains and always a happy ending. With Raazi she achieves a narrative that doesn't falter, she touches … Continue reading Movie Review: Raazi

Movie Review: Veere Di Wedding

I almost didn't watch this movie. Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor aren't quite the draw for me personally. Add to it, the reviews had been less than stellar and I didn't want to watch a badly made chick-flick when I could use those 2 hours to sleep or read instead...color me pleasantly surprised!

However, the senses must be appeased and of late I've wanted to have more visual stimulations while … Continue reading Book Review: Sita’s Ramayana
