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! Now this movie … Continue reading Movie Review: Veere Di Wedding

Movie Review: Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

First question? Why did I watch it and 2) Why am I bothering to review it either? Answers: 1) My kid's school still hasn't opened so am just gasping for things that distract me and we're both (mother and son) tripping on Bom Diggy Diggy  song from the movie so why not? 2) I just … Continue reading Movie Review: Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

Movie Review: Blackmail (2018)

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

Movie Review: Rustom

It's good to watch movies. Good or bad. Gives one an idea about the kind of things film makers are thinking about and if they do have the pulse of their audience. With Rustom they succeeded in breaking out of the run-of-the-mill Bollywood masala grist and yet failed to craft a taut film that makes … Continue reading Movie Review: Rustom

Movie Review- Tamasha

I went and saw Tamasha yesterday. And here's why I liked it: Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor work. Totally work. Their chemistry is palpable. Helps that Kapoor isn't an aging Khan and an actual contemporary of the lead actress; playing his own age. Corsica is beautiful. And the fact that they moved away from Capri … Continue reading Movie Review- Tamasha
