Movie Review: Kedarnath

This post isn’t advocating that you do go and see the movie if you’d much rather not. However, it does stress on the aspect of enjoyment you’d get and the surprise you’d feel if you did. Set in the backdrop of the catastrophic floods that ravaged parts of Uttarakhand back in 2013, this movie has…

Paying For It…Literally

Once upon a time there was a world which had movies and t.v shows up to the heavens. It was a lovely world. All (almost) the latest episodes and movies uploaded as soon as they aired and it was FREEEEEEE! There were heroes like Yify who made the world a happy, happy place. This world needed…

Movie Review: Simmba

If there was a movie which could have had ‘OTT’ as a catch phrase it would be this one. Or it could have the slightly longer but also accurate one of ‘The Movie Where Rohit Shetty Didn’t Blow A Car Up’. Whatever be the case, Simmba is a movie that is unadulterated entertainment. The kind…

Movie Review: Uri The Surgical Strike

Not only was this my first movie of 2019 it ticked multiple boxes of requirement for my movie-watching pleasure. Having grown up on the kind of war movie fare that comprises of Border, LOC and its ilk, Uri sets a new benchmark in the genre. While it’s not as taut as Zero.Dark. Thirty or Hurt Locker,…

Movie Review: Aquaman

Aquaman is totally worth the money because for the price of one movie, you can view a whole bunch of movies because there’s hardly anything that Aquaman hasn’t borrowed from. Let’s start with Jason Momoa shall we? The fresh faced young man from Baywatch Hawaii morphed into Khal Drogo and then Arthur Curry/Aquaman and made…

Movie Review: Andhadhun

In a nutshell? This movie is a mad cap caper. Andhadhun translates to Blind Tune or a state of being slapdash and both definitions fit the scenarios perfectly. Led by Ayushmaan Khurana and Tabu in their usual capable ways, the movie starts out strong in the first half but the director ends up dropping the…

Movie Review: Baywatch

Unless you have a few bottles of booze handy OR are supremely bored OR just want to test the waters and see at what point you say ‘enough’, don’t watch this movie. Reasons are given below in no particular order but with a lot of feeling: You will never get back those 116 minutes that…

Movie Review: The Meg

Ever since I was a cute little girl and got introduced to killer sharks by my semi-misguided parents who thought it was ok to take a 2 year to a creature flick; I have sought out shark movies. I have watched the good ones viz Jaws, Deep Blue Sea, The Shallows and its rather limited ilk. I…

Movie Review: Karwaan

I’d like to start off by saying- Go watch it. It may not be something you’d want to watch again and again. But you’d like it if ,you did watch it just the once. This is what Karwaan isn’t: It’s not a screwball comedy a la It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World It’s not…

Movie Review: Skyscraper

Will Sawyer is no John Maclane. And Skycraper is no Die Hard.  But be as that may, it has the potential to be an entertaining movie despite having to live up to the rep of movies of the same ilk having scored BIG at the box office and becoming cult classics. There are mainly 3…
