The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel continues its comedic brilliance in Season Two

Amy Sherman-Palladino’s whirlwind comedy-drama The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel premiered in March 2017 and set our hearts on fire. With its riveting late-1950s sets, eye-popping colours, and at the centre of it, our vivacious protagonist Midge Maisel who had embarked on a journey of self-discovery through stand-up comedy of all things, Palladino’s production had it all….

Stree | Review

When the Ramsay brothers directed their first horror film in 1972, little did they know that it would spawn a stream of parallel cinema which would never become a part of mainstream Bollywood, but would rather create its own cult following. This cult following which may have started out by ardent horror enthusiasts doesn’t stand…

Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind | Review

Some of my formative childhood memories have been spent watching films like Hook (1991), Jumanji (1995) and Flubber (1997). It was back then that my mind associated Williams with that funny, loving, child-like character who stood out from anyone else I had seen on screen. For some reason, I would see him as one of…

Emo Pray Love | by Manjiri Mazgaonkar

The End of the F***ing World is a surprisingly beautiful and binge worthy coming of age love story of two diametrically opposite clueless teaenagers. James who thinks he is a psychopath (he isn’t) tries hard to go with the flow without being noticed and Alyssa who thinks she is a moody free spirit (she isn’t)…

Ghosted | Pilot Review

Ghosted released yesterday, Sunday, October 1st and the series is just the perfect divertissement you needed to relax on a laid back Sunday afternoon. The makers of the series cognize the potential of buddy cop camaraderie between stars Adam Scott and Chris Robinson and jump straight into it without spending too much time in establishing…

The Boss Baby | Movie Review | Alec Baldwin

Ask me about the best days of my life and I’ll tell you, unequivocably, that it was the time when my little brother came into my life with his chubby little bum and pudgy fingers, smiling like an idiot that he was (and still is!). Strangely, I still remember the day when we went to…

Phillauri | Movie Review | Anushka Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh, Suraj Sharma

Among the list of upcoming film trailers, Phillauri was one of the few which had grabbed my attention. I am one of those paranoid movie-goers who is absolutely terrified of being prejudiced about the story before watching the actual film. So much so, that I refrain from reading any reviews or interviews or hearing even the slightest…

How films are made : “Birdman” 

Alejandro Inarritu is one of those rare misfits whose work sets new paradigms of film-making with every production that he comes up with. The Revenant which was a harrowing tale of the life and rebirth of a frontiersman named Hugh Glass earned wide acclaim with its sheer visceral imagery and a stark portrayal of the…

The “War Dogs” Review

There was a time when documentarians took it upon themselves to research on high-impact world issues and unveil the dirt from underneath the carpet. We live in a much more glorious time now where mainstream film-makers have started adapting such subjects to bring to us what we would like to call as Economedy – an…

The “Happy Bhag Jayegi” Review

The legend is true! Jimmy Shergil can never get the girl in his movies. Be it Tanu weds Manu, Mere Yaar ki Shaadi Hain (where he loses the lady to Uday Chopra! …Yes we rechecked), Dil Hain Tumhaara, this guy with the most baronial of looks doesn’t get his love interest. So when the trailer…
