Disappointments of 2016

 It’s always tough to choose bad films in a year because there’re way too many. But when a promising film with great directors and actors don’t live up to the expectations, it hurts even bad than a terrible film. Fortunately or unfortunately I didn’t watch many of those terrible films….

Best of 2016

 Now that all major releases of 2016 are out, it’s time to take a look at some of the best hindi and telugu movies made in the past 12 months. Also I tried to mention few brilliant marathi and tamil films which I felt are pushing the regional cinema.    …

Dangal

  How can I categorize Dangal? Calling it just a sports drama is plain stupid because it’s much more. If not Dangal, “India’s Daughters” would’ve been a perfect choice for the title because these are our inspiring daughters who we need to know. Mahavir Singh Phogat(Aamir) is a national wrestling…

Dear Zindagi

  We’ve seen many films about life. Still, there’s a lot to be explored yet because of many different perspectives of people. Dear Zindagi is one such take on life by Gauri Shinde.  Kaira (Alia) is a cinematographer/camerawoman (I waited so long to use this word 🙂 ) who’s a…

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

  “Ajeeb kahaani hai pyaar aur dosthi ki rishthe ki.. pyaar hamara hero dosthi hamari heroine”. This one dialogue pretty much sums up Ae dil hai Mushkil. Ayan (Ranbir) wants love. Alizeh(Anushka) wants friendship and feels that friendship is strength and love is weakness. So what happens when these two…

Mana Oori Ramayanam

  Few minutes into Mana Oori Ramayanam, you know it’s not a regular telugu cinema. There’s no heavy background score underlining every emotion, no physics defining action sequences, no item numbers and above all – no hero worshipping.  Bhujangayya (Prakash Raj), a big head in a village wants his 19-year old daughter…

PINK

“Woman, whoever it be – your friend, girlfriend, acquaintance, sex worker, even your own wife – when she say’s NO .. you stop !!” This one dialogue sums up the entire essence of the film “Pink”. From the opening credits with the girls names before Mr. Bachchan to the poem…

Baar Baar Dekho

  I haven’t watched Game of thrones. But from what I heard about it, I can say Baar Baar Dekho feels like GoT. Not in a good way. Just when you think things start falling into place and narrative gets intriguing, the screenplay tumbles like a character getting killed in GoT….

Pelli Choopulu

Pelli choopulu is by far the purest film in recent times which brings fresh and cool air to the commercially heated up Telugu film industry. Story : Prashanth (Vijay) is a carefree engineer (well not technically since he has one subject left 😛 ) who’s a dreamer but too lazy…
