The Wife Review: A poignant, sensitive drama 

A poignant and brutally honest examination of a spouse’s place in literary success and the lack of respect accorded to women writers, that asks all the right questions

16 Feb 2019

Cold Pursuit Review: Hollywood masala done right

A 100 per cent masala comedy action flick that pokes a whole lot of fun at all things guns and all things killing

Mary Queen of Scots Review: Fascinating dual-character study of two powerful women in a world of men

Rich in history and paced like a period thriller with dark symbolism, the film is a fascinating dramatisation of one of the most crucial political periods of the sixteenth century

Bombairiya Review: A wild whodunnit goose chase

The unending speculation, and the skill of the narrative to keep you in equal parts riveted and intrigued, are great, but the director could have cut down on the number of twists and turns

19 Jan 2019

Sex Education (Season 1) Review: Honest, relatable and thoroughly engaging drama peppered with some quirky moments

A must-see show that presents teenagers as relatable/realistic human beings navigating the confounding world of sex, peer pressure, and identity

11 Jan 2019

Mary Poppins Returns Review: An earnest successor to a timeless classic

The film may not be as iconic as the Julie Andrews starrer, but it will certainly go down in cinematic history as a worthy attempt at a successor

08 Jan 2019

Ben is Back Review: An up and down sort of film

An interesting premise, with moments of brilliance from Julia Roberts, but the below-par execution and an average performance from Lucas Hedges has let the film down

15 Dec 2018

Green Book Review: Funny, intense, and affecting

An affecting exploration of prejudice, Green Book is a touching, intense and beautiful story of friendship between men that are poles apart

24 Nov 2018

Boy Erased Review: A thought-provoking film about sexual identity and religious hypocrisy

A highly thought-provoking film on sexual identity, religious hypocrisy, and basic ethics, that needs our urgent and undivided attention

16 Nov 2018

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Review: Nothing to write home about

Elaborately imagined sets, the intricate and stunning costumes of members of the new world, the beautifully choregraphed ballet routines not helped by a disappointing narrative

03 Nov 2018

Halloween Review: Average, but worth a watch  

A film superior to the bad films made through the years, but, not even close to Carpenter’s 1978 original that forever changed the quintessentially American trick-or-treating holiday

27 Oct 2018

Jalebi Review: An extremely ineffective melodrama

Filled with laughable coincidences, a penchant for melodrama, and an unnecessary romanticisation of love and heartbreak, Jalebi fails to make any sort of serious impression.

12 Oct 2018

LoveYatri Review: Unduly long, cliche-ridden, below-par bore fest

The film pays less attention to nuance, choosing to rely on its unrealistic masala love story for success. It doesn’t work 

07 Oct 2018

Sui Dhaaga Review: Championing the underdog

A true underdog story that relies more on its poignant moments than its predictably hopeful ones

28 Sep 2018

Batti Gul Meter Chalu Review: Well intentioned but poorly executed

A film that gets its basics spot on. Had it not been for the dreadful execution, it may well have left a lasting impact.
