Prassthanam Movie Review: A predictable political drama that could've been much better

Melodramatic, highly stylised, and poorly executed, this film would have been a total disaster if not for an impressive Ali Fazal

The Queen’s Corgi Movie Review: Endearing and predictable in equal measure

A 50-50 sort of animated film that has enough within it to warrant a watch

Can You Ever Forgive Me? Movie Review: A beautiful, sensitive film that must not be missed at any cost

Subtle in its humour and pathos, it gives you an honest glimpse into the cruel world of a literary has-been, and also shines a light on how far a writer will go for the sake of her survival

The Hustle: A boring, unfunny remake that recreates the same stereotypes it wishes to dispel

If you force yourself to laugh at any point during the course of this boring film, it will mostly be at its sheer stupidity

Pet Sematary Review: A spookier film than the original that takes too much liberty with its script

Had they not tampered with major events from the original, Pet Sematary (2019) could well have ended up being the best adaptation of King’s novel yet

The Sound Story Review: A documentary-type film that is let down by its over-the-top backstory

While the parts that employ the documentary format are excellent, the fictionalised elements fall prey to the pitfalls of overacting and poor writing

The Least of These Review: A well-intentioned film that loses the plot thanks to poor execution

This ordinarily told story means well, but the effectiveness of the narrative is let down by a number of factors

29 Mar 2019

Mere Pyare Prime Minister Review: An uproariously funny & soul-crushingly poignant film of high social relevance

Containing elements of humour, pathos, triumph, and tragedy, the socially relevant Mere Pyare Prime Minister is a film not be missed

Isn't It Romantic Review: A parody that falls prey to its own cliches 

A parody of all romcoms that isn’t as effective as it ought to have been, but there’s no harm in giving it one watch

22 Feb 2019

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

08 Feb 2019

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
