Celebrating Cinema & Wielding Magic: Bombay Talkies Way

  If it is going to take another hundred years, for candy floss directors like Karan Johar to make believable and cinema of impact, we should rather celebrate each decade. ‘Bombay Talkies’ conveys the universal language of humanity, it has his moments of edginess, but all in all it is very close to reality.

Aditya Roy’s Brilliance only Saving Grace for Aashiqui 2

  Summary: Trying to make something between Devdas and Abhimaan, Mohit Suri let’s down expectations that were raised because of the name of Aashiqui 2. The film leave aside delighting, does not in fact appeal to any senses. Shraddha Kapoor as usual does not fit in the female lead’s role and with many fragile characters around, this one is a huge let down.

  Captain RED: I call Gambhir captain RED because he has been a personification of anger all through the season, yelling and screaming at the bowlers and fielders. He looks more and more like a wrestler in a steel cage match than a senior pro in KKR. One could argue that Gambhir was always aggressive but venting out and yelling at players especially when your team is losing is not the right example that is

Jazz by the Way!

The UNESCO organizes the International Jazz Day on 30 April every year. So being a music aficionado (or at least trying to be), I thought of delving a little into the journey of this musical genre in a country that already has an excellent musical legacy. Well, the search for the same, again took me to my hometown, the City of Joy. I was not quite surprised as the Kolkata is officially known as the

Iron Man 3: Delightful Cinema at its Best

Summary: Iron Man 3 shows up why the west is so ahead of us in filmmaking. For those who have always felt the primary reason is money that they invest in technology, this one will shove the theory in their back.

And when I ponder and introspect, I have a hearty laugh on how much difficulties both the families faced to connect me to that connection! When I found my Mr.Right, I was in cloud nine unaware of the situations that might arise when we break the news of getting married to
