A New Era in the MCU

No more Iron Man, no Captain America, and Thanos defeated for good. Marvel and Kevin Feige took almost 10 years to meticulously (and rather miraculously) construct what is today one of the biggest movie franchises- The Marvel Cinematic Universe. The entire story arc (The Infinity Saga), which concluded with Avengers: End Game (actually, the last film in this arc was Spiderman: Far From Home), established many superheroes, none bigger than Iron Man and Captain America. Now, with both of them written off the future storylines, a new era for MCU has begun. ...

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.  ...

In case anyone is wondering, let me tell you, Gulabo Sitabo is as enjoyable from the cosy corner of your home, as it would be on the big screen.  ... 

Upload Season 1 Review

Upload is a new Amazon Original series starring Robbie Amell and Andy Allo. I would classify it as a sci-fi rom-com satire, and that makes it quite novel. I will be honest, I started the show because I was looking for a guilty pleasure. I am sure we all watch shows which we know are slightly stupid or obvious or just easy. I do it when I don’t want to indulge. At that time, I want to watch something easy and even pick up my phone to check a notification or two, without having to worry about what I have missed. Based on the trailer, I was confident that I have found it, but halfway through the first episode, I was so smitten that I did not want to look at my phone, even when it was ringing. Clearly, I was wrong, and as luck would have it, Upload turned out to be sheer serendipity. ...
