Star Trek Discovery Season 2 (Netflix) Review

star trek discovery

There aren't too many media franchises in the world that have stood the test of time. Certainly not like Star Trek, created by Gene Roddenberry, which is not only one of the most culturally-influential media franchises but also touted as the greatest Sci-Fi television series to date.  Star Trek originally premiered in 1966 only to be pulled off-air after just 3 seasons. It came back with a bang when ownership changed hands and Paramount pictures started reruns across over 200 domestic and international markets to recover some of the losses. Star Trek garnered a cult following and became a pop-culture icon.  ... 

The Umbrella Academy (Netflix) Season 1 Review

Ellen Page Umbrella Academy

Based on a series of comics by Gerad Way and Gabriel Ba, Umbrella Academy looks like a disbanded version of The X-Men. I have not read the comics so I would not be able to say how much of them have been brought to life by Netflix. ... 

Shazam! Movie Review

Delhi Crime (Netflix) Season 1 Review

“Tell me something, have you ever seen a local crime being covered by CNN?”
Kumar Vijay - Commissioner of Police

The show is based on the events of 16th Dec 2012 in Delhi i.e. the gang rape of Nirbhaya in a moving bus by 6 men. Yes, Delhi is known as the Rape Capital and yes the unfortunate truth is that they are not a rare occurrence. This case, however, was different and the show reminds us of the horrifying truths that made it so.  ... 

Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota Movie Review

Abhimanyu Radhika

Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota (MKDNH), written and directed by Vasan Bala is an unusual Hindi film. That's because it is really difficult to classify it into a specific category. It is an action dramedy but it is also a satire and above all, a love letter to the whole action genre of the '70s & '80s, especially martial arts films. Much to its credit, the references in the film stretch far beyond the '80s and Bollywood. There are elements that celebrate legends like Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan apart from multiple shoutouts to genre-defining films like Drunken Master, Big Trouble in Little China, Rocky and many more.   ...
