Which is what exactly The Hitman’s Bodyguard serves its audience with occasional low […]

Dangal Poster

Amir Khan delivers career best performance along with the supporting cast who shines in this beautiful tale of sacrifice, dedication and achieving your goals at all cost. When Sultan came earlier this year, I was a bit confused with all the praise it was getting. Don’t get me wrong, I thought it was a decent movie, but not the kind of great which I was hoping for after going through all the critical applause it was getting.

La La Land Movie Review: This Movie Will Break Your Heart But Push You To Live Your Dreams

la la land

After impressing everyone with amazing Whiplash (2014), Damien Chazelle is back with another awards front-runner. Sometimes you need someone to push you to achieve your dreams, which is what this movie wants to say. To be Honest, I wasn’t a big fan of Hollywood musicals since musicals are part of each and every one of our films, so I always frowned upon the idea of my favorite Hollywood actors dancing on a song in the middle of a tense or romantic scene. I felt kinda weird. But all that changed when I watched La La Land. And all the credit […]

Mirzya – What Critics Are Saying

Mirzya

Mirzya released this Friday with all  the hype surrounding its debutante stars and interesting take on the Mirzya-Sahiban love story from the acclaimed director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. But what the critics are saying about the movie. Let’s find out: Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express): Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher’s film brings together a highly talented team. The final result, however, is disappointing. Rohit Vats (Hindustan Times): This 135-minute Shakespearean drama is visually impressive, but lacks the essence of a heart wrenching love-story. It’s a period drama trying hard to be a musical. Surabhi Redkar(Koimoi): Mirzya is a film for a niche audience. […]
