She Loved The Devil: Ek Villain

Aisha (Shraddha Kapoor) cracks PJs stopping every other person in the movie, ‘Ek joke sunaoon’ she says. She had a deep impact on the little bit of working brain that I was left with after watching the film. So here I go too, Ek joke sunao? “Mohit Suri’s newest film is the most original, most brilliantly written revenge saga every ...

Stupid is as stupid does: Holiday Review

Bollywood has been making stupid films from a time we simply cannot remember. But do you know the trend-setter? The one who started the league of extraordinarily stupid and mundane South-Indian remakes that would cash them crores of rupees at the box-office? Brace yourself ! The super-intellectual mind that ruined the Christopher Nolan masterpiece ‘Memento’, not only once but twice, ...

Coldplay’s Ghost Stories Review

Love them or hate them, their music is sonically exhilarating and more often than not it makes you feel something. The emotionally deep Coldplay is back and it’s sadder than ever. The obvious reason being the mishap in the long married life of lead-man Chris Martin. While greatness is never achieved here, there are a few tracks of exceptional quality. ...

Why are the IITs Losing their Global Ranking

I am a graduate from IIT Kanpur. Every year whenever the world college rankings are announced, I carefully scan those in order to know the current ranking of my college, also in a hope that someday I’ll see it at the top.

2 states : When Sambhar meets Tandoori chicken

The movie starts with a Tam-Brahm (Alia Bhatt) and a Punjabi munda (Arjun Kapoor) falling in  love at the most sought-after and beautiful campus of IIM-A. Ananya (Alia) does not really have the Tam-Brahm qualities at first but gains them later in the movie somehow. Their romance dies a little as the movie progresses. The movie begins when the love ...

The Cuckoo’s calling Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling): Book Review

Normally, people cannot associate a meandering pace with a detective novel. A detective novel has to be a race against time, it has to be a high stakes game; the protagonist has to be silent, brooding types possessing higher degree of eccentricity and clairvoyance. But reality is scarcely romantic. Cormoran Strike is the non-romantic Sherlock. He isn’t gifted, but he is a trained detective. ...

Youngistaan

I will praise Syed Ahmad Afzal for presenting this film when Lok Sabha elections are around the corner. There are many familiar events and political figures which pop up throughout the film, lightly fictionalised, yet recognizable. Real smart of him right? Only, his film isn’t. The premise sounds interesting. We all have seen and loved S. Shankar’s ‘Nayak’. Running very ...

Movie Review; “Her”

Picture this, Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansen in bed, getting steamy. I’m sure that’s a scene that would raise several eye brows and many would even wonder how the censor board allowed it to be played in India in the first place. But wait! It’s not what it sounds like. Or rather, it’s just the sounds and no visuals. That’s ...

Review; RoboCop

So I don’t know where to start and where to end this, since the fans of the original will shit all over what I say. But, as I haven’t seen the original I think I am entitled to my own opinion on the RoboCop movie. RoboCop is basically the story of Detective Alex Murphy (Joek Kinnaman), who gets critically injured ...

Review; Gunday

Remember the early 90’s show ‘Baywatch’ where models who couldn’t act would randomly run on the beach saving lives? Gunday reminded me of it but in an awful manner. Instead of saving lives, these Gundas here are sometimes running for their lives, sometimes for their work but mostly for no reason at all Are you a big slo-mo action fan? ...
