The phrase ‘there is beauty in everything’ is epitomised in every single frame of the new Netflix original film, Bulbbul. Produced by Clean Slate Filmz (Anushka Sharma-Karnesh Sharma), Bulbbul is a Supernatural Drama directed by long time dialogue writer and lyricist, Anvita Dutt. Tripti Dimri plays the critical role of Bulbbul and gets support from her Laila Majnu (2018) co-star Avinash Tiwary, along with Rahul Bose, Paoli Dam, and Parambrata Chattopadhyay.

Klaus Movie Review

Animated films are a great way for the entire family to get together. Most of them (and especially the good ones) are heartwarming, entertaining and illuminating. For people with kids, it is a sure-shot way to keep them entertained and impart an important life lesson or two in the process. Klaus is well equipped to do all of that very well. ... 

The Last Dance Series Review

 Sports Documentaries are not only meant for people who understand a particular sport or enthusiasts in general. A good sports documentary can be relished by anyone who appreciates an engaging narrative, edge of the seat action, the mystery of who will come out on top, or the drama behind the scenes. The Last Dance is not a good sports documentary but a great one, because it is not just informational but also inspirational in equal measure. This 10 part series created by ESPN offers so much that I would recommend each one to binge-watch this right away. There is an underdog story that turns into a dream run that finally becomes a phenomenon as Chicago Bulls become world champions not once, not twice but an insurmountable 6 times in 8 years (1991 to 1998). There is also a coming of age story of the most incredible athlete the world has ever seen, who also happens to be the greatest superstar in the world of sport. ... 

C/o Kancharapalem Movie Review (2018, Telugu)

Kancharapalem

Made on a shoe-string budget of around 70 Lakhs, C/o Kancharapalem brings us 4 love stories that vary across age, religion, caste and social status. It is a fine example of how you can make an excellent film without big stars and big budgets. All you need is good writing and a lot of heart. C/o Kancharapalem has plenty of both. The characters are so endearing and you will see it right up front, as little Sundaram waits in the rain with his friend to catch a glimpse of his classmate Sunitha. Sundaram’s smile when he sees Sunitha approaching, Sunitha and her friend approaching in slow motion carrying an umbrella, the shots done through the rain and the sheer innocence of it all. Just like Sundaram, I lost my heart right there. ... 

Dark (Netflix) Review – Season 1 + Season 2

dark-1 must blig

Dark will soon be releasing its third and final season in a few months, and hence, I thought this is the right time to talk about this amazing show. Dark is a rare show because of many reasons, the first being that it is the first German TV series coming out as a Netflix original. That's an amazing reach for a show that otherwise no one would have even heard of halfway across the globe. Hats off to Netflix for being able to scout for such brilliant shows and having the eye to know their global appeal. Dark is set in a fictional small-town called Winden in Germany and going by the season 1 trailer, it may come across as a murder/kidnapping mystery, falling very much into the Crime genre. But that may not be a correct assessment.   ...
