A Noir Whodunit

Raat Akeli Hai is an investigative thriller that beautifully mixes the classic 'whodunit' with noir elements. It is the debut film for Director Honey Trehan, making this the second directorial debut for a casting director this month (Dil Bechara was the first). The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, playing Inspector Jatil Yadav, the unmarried cop with old school ideologies about the appropriate life partner. In true noir style, Jatil is a loner who gets smitten by the key suspect, Radha, played by Radhika Apte. Every scene they have together is oozing with unbridled chemistry and is a treat to watch.  ... 

Udta Punjab Movie Review

Blog Header 1200x600 px

Udta Punjab is a treat from start to end. Stellar performances from the 4 main leads coupled with a little gem from Satish Kaushik (after a long time).

That's because, in this film, there is an actual spy, not someone who won a fancy dress competition in school and now believes that it is a profession. ... 

Paatal Lok Season 1 Review

paatal lok must blog

Paatal Lok is an Amazon Original series streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The show is a crime thriller and stars Jaideep Ahlawat, Neeraj Kabi and Abhishek Banerjee. It has been produced by Clean Slate Filmz, the production house of Anushka Sharma and her brother Karnesh Sharma. So first and foremost, I would like to thank Anushka and Karnesh for backing such unique content. Their banner has been continuously taking a chance on scripts that may not seem typical or mainstream, right from their first production, NH10. They followed this up with Phillauri and Pari, trying to tell stories that were away from the cliches of Bollywood. Paatal Lok falls perfectly in line with this pedigree, as it is bold, blazing and brilliant.  ...
