Tamasha takes the first 15 minutes of the movie just to introduce Ved’s character. Which is pretty unorthodox for a movie that has been sold to us as a romance movie by its trailer. This is where you first start to see that this movie isn’t going to be just about the love story. I think we can all agree on the fact that Bollywood has no shortage of movies about love stories. There are at least two which come out every year and apart from each having its own quirk, they’re pretty much all the same. Boy meets girl,…

Monkey Bar, Kolkata: I left Kolkata/ Howrah right after my class 12 was over to pursue law at a university in Sonepat. While I was not very hopeful of the conditions there, I was definitely sure that Delhi will provide me with ample opportunities to train my tastebuds, and make up for the lack of good, new food joints that I had experienced back home over the four years of my stay here. I wasn’t disappointed. Delhi does have a huge range of culinary options for consumers to choose from. And Kolkata is catching up too. Since I spend most…

A Death In The Gunj is an Indian drama thriller film written and directed by Konkona Sen Sharma. It features Vikrant Massey, Tillotama Shome, Om Puri, Tanuja, Gulshan Devaiah, Kalki Koechlin, Jim Sarbh, and Ranvir Shorey. I went into this movie without seeing any promotional material for the film. I read no reviews – since most of them do unintentionally give away important plot details – and went in just on recommendation. For those who think that this film is a murder mystery will be disappointed as it is less of that and more a story about that events that…

Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins and Stars Gal Gadot, Chris pine, Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen and is the story is how Wonder Woman discovers mankind and takes it upon herself to help end the First World War. Better late than never but I had to watch this movie twice before I ended up talking about it. I try to that with most movies that I feel like have a lot riding on them. This movie from the get-go had the task of ‘saving the DCEU’. Now even though in the past I have enjoyed most DCEU movies,…

The Fate of The Furious is the eighth film in the Fast and Furious franchise. It was pointed out to me by someone that eight movies is a lot for a franchise which has no source material (books, comic books, video games). That is impressive for a franchise which started of as a bad Point Break rip-off and was about a cop infiltrating the street racing world to arrest some people who have committed theft of DVD players. Now, we’re outrunning submarines and stealing nuclear launch codes. Right of the bat, this movie is as ridiculous as it gets. If…

Depression is real and don’t set it aside. It’s as bad as any other life threatening condition, only difference being that this one plays around with your mental stability. It forces you to think over and over again about the same thing, which ultimately takes you and drags you to a place of stagnancy. Your life will seem dull and you will be under confident. You will feel like an underachiever and even lose trust in yourself, and in everyone around you. And at times, speaking about it will only make conditions worse for you, because you will not feel at home.…

I am sitting across from someone I love and they are talking about something I can’t hold my focus on, they notice the shift of my usual demeanour and ask if I am okay. I say “I just don’t feel like myself of late”. I am sitting across from someone I love, the same person, a few months later and they are talking about something I can’t hold my focus on, except this time they do not ask me if I am okay. They have asked that question too many times lately and my answer never changes so instead we…

For the people who don’t know what to expect going into this movie, I’d like to point out that this movie might be difficult to watch for people who don’t like heights, insects, rats, dark spaces, are claustrophobic and or vegetarians. With that out of the way let’s talk about this one. This movie is directed by Vikramaditya Motwane who has made films like Udaan and Lootera in the past. This film is nothing like any of the work you’ve seen from him before but you may have seen a movie like this before. A man is trapped in a place with…
