Vikram (2022) Movie Review

vikram header

When you have a cast like Vikram, it is a double-edged sword. It has to carry the weight of expectations, do justice to the talent and on top of that, entertain. I am so pleased to say, Vikram does all of that, and does it with a lot of panache. ... 

Jugjug Jeeyo Movie Review

jug 5

Nothing pathbreaking here which was not surprising. I went in to have a good time but that was delivered in very small doses, and rather sporadically. There isn’t much happening to keep you invested and there is no deep dive into the characters. Whatever is shown is from a consistent level of depth, occasionally surfacing from the shallow to crack some jokes. ...

The film is well written and characters are fleshed out in a manner that compels you to feel for them. ... 

Matrix Resurrections – Movie Review

Matrix Resurrections felt like a film that Wachowskis did not want to direct, a film where Keanu did not want to act, a film where the action is such that Neo would not even be able to beat assassins from John Wick. It was lazy, sloppy and frankly, utterly pointless. ...
