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 … Continue reading Movie Review: Andhadhun
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.

It is strangely enough, also an ode to the nail cutter and umbrellas. Never has the humble implement of hand and foot hygiene received so much spotlight neither, for … Continue reading Movie Review: Pari
