Vikram (2022) Movie Review

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. ... 

Jersey (2022) Movie Review

Shahid Kapoor shouting at platform in Jersey

After being postponed on numerous occasions (covid, lack of sufficient screens), Jersey (2022), starring Shahid Kapoor, finally hit theatres this Friday. The makers of Jersey (2022) wanted to release the film in theatres and not on OTT as they felt it was best suited for the big screen. I am a little biased on this topic, but I strongly feel that they were right. As much as I love the convenience and choices offered by OTT, I always prefer watching films in the cinema.

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

Spiderman: No Way Home – Movie Review

spider_man_no_way_home_0

Spiderman No Way Home is the closest a Marvel superhero film gets to an Indian masala entertainer. And I say this with utmost respect. Spiderman NWH has trademark humour we expect from Marvel, the right balance of emotion, a sprinkle of romance & drama, and loads n loads of action. These aspects seamlessly blend to give even the casual watchers plenty to enjoy without any disappointment. ...
