Fleabag

fleabag blog must watch

Finally, a show where I can safely declare, 'The finest piece of writing...ever', without any qualms. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, please take a bow, for creating, writing and performing Fleabag. She created the idea of Fleabag due to a challenge by a friend, where she had to create a 10 min sketch for a stand-up storytelling night.

It will only be a spot even when it had the opportunity to paint the entire canvas, for generations to admire. ... 

Manmarziyaan Movie Review

Manmarziyaan Abhishek Bachchan Tapsee Pannu

Manmarziyaan continues Anurag Kashyap's 2.0 journey into mainstream Hindi cinema. Though he had a forgettable start to it with Bombay Velvet, I remained optimistic. To be fair, Bombay Velvet was still very much in Kashyap's domain. There was a retro setting, underworld and struggle for power. Those are all the things, Kashyap excels in. When he was not able to deliver a good film with that setting, many would have doubted Kashyap's multi-dimensional ability. However, this time he is experimenting with a completely new genre and seems in a good enough form to prove his point. ...
