Movie Review: Bahubali: Utterly Disdainfully Delightful

Unlike most critics I think the first half of Bahubali utterly delightful and is an intrinsic component of Rajamouli’s intended narrative structure. After all what does the second half have? A brilliantly conceived and executed war scene. But at the end of the day, it is just a single note – war. That would be okay in the Hollywood aesthetics but we Indians do it differently.  I mean Mahabharat is not just the war. The

Movie Review: Papanasam: is worth a dip

Director: Jeethu Joseph Stars: Kamal Haasan, Gautami, Niveda Thomas Despite the recall factor of the original,this remake reiterates the cinematic excellence of Jeetu Josephs vision. Kamal owns the role in his own inimitable way knowing very well that comparisons would be made to Mohanlal’s effort…So who is the better one? I would say the winner is the dishyam of the director! The emphatic pre climactic episode (highlight of the film) had Mohanlal giving out a towering and

गजेंद्र चौहान कौन हैं?

25 साल से कम उम्र वाली पीढ़ी उन्हे नहीं जानती। जानती उन्हे पुरानी पीढ़ी भी नहीं है। सिर्फ दो दावे उनके बारे में। समर्थकों का कहना है कि महाभारत सीरियल में युधिष्ठर की जो कालजयी भूमिका निभाई थी, उसे कोई नहीं भूल सकता। गजेंद्र युधिष्ठर बने थे, अच्छी बात है। लेकिन केंद्र सरकार को गांधरी बनने की क्या ज़रूरत थी? बीजेपी के सदस्य होने के इनाम के तौर पर युधिष्ठर को लॉ कमीशन का चेयरमैन

Tanu Weds Manu returns: Brilliant writing and brilliant Kangana

As I sit down to pen my immediate thoughts after seeing Tanu Weds Manu Returns, I wonder whether I should start by doing aarti to Goddess Kangana or by taking the foot-dust of sage Himanshu Sharma. Since I have done some or the other kind of writing all my life, I pick up the latter. (Kangana, no, I cannot aspire to be like you.) Take a bow Sharma Saheb, aapne toh tabiyat khush kar di.

Movie Recommendation: The Crow: Best Comic Book Adaptation of All Time

“Buildings Burn, People Die but Real Love is Forever.” Might sound a corny quote but listen to it in the context of this movie and you will understand its beauty. As i have mentioned in the title, The Crow is quite possibly the best comic book adaptation for the big screen and its one of the biggest cult movies of all time. Brandon Lee stars as the Rock-star Eric Draven in his last and most

Movie Review: Mad Max Fury Road: Best Summer Blockbuster Since “The Dark Knight”

What a lovely day indeed. I was excited when the Mad Max trailer hit the internet about an year ago but I had no idea this movie will be able to surpass even Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. Mad Max Fury Road is a technical masterpiece. I am not a huge fan of CGI but this is exactly how CGI should be done. That doesn’t mean the story takes a back seat here, screenplay

Movie Recommendation: Piku: It is 100% perfect

While trying to get myself a glass of water I noticed the expensive single malt (Oban) that my nephew-in-law had bought when he came visiting. I normally do not drink when alone. But I thought I must pour myself a small one. This called for a celebration certainly. So many of my cinematic heroes had come good of late. First off the block was Vishal Bhardwaj with his ‘Haider’ that I have seen thrice in

Margarita with a Straw is a beautiful movie! BUT it’s not for everyone

It is for those who are not judgmental…for those who believe that life is a journey where you learn from your experiences – experiences that are sweet, bitter, sour and salty…for those who believe that its okay to make mistakes…for those who believe that self-exploration makes life richer and intellect stronger…for those who understand that emotions and thoughts can be complex – that not every action or reaction can be bucketed as black or white;

Avengers age of ultron – Review

Director: Joss Whedon Cast: Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen If you ask me which movie did I like more, The Avengers or the Avengers – age of Ultron, I would vote for the former.  I wouldn’t blame the movie though. To be honest it was my expectations from the franchise that made me lose. I expected something beyond but
