Disney!! What more can I say ?? It was everything you expect from a Disney movie….. a universal story, a great soundtrack and emotionally enriching. It will make you laugh, make you care for the protagonist and often leave you misty-eyed. Just stop reading and go ahead and watch it already. Doesn’t matter who you…

Match Point

Another typical Woody Allen drama!! I don’t have much to say about the movie. Like many of his movies, this one also explores the complexity and nuances of human interactions. It seems like Allen has this wisdom of human behaviour, how people think and react. He takes the complexity of human emotions and reduces it…

Moonlight

A rare piece in Hollywood!! You don’t find many pieces in Hollywood (that come to limelight) that explore the grim corners of our society. This movie dares to do it…. and it’s nice to see it getting appreciated by so many across the industry. We need movies like this….. movies that explore the society from…

Shame

Raw!! The movie tells a compelling story of a sex addict (kind of). There isn’t much of a dialogue. Yet the spectrum of emotion that it delivers is commendable. All of it was accomplished through a near perfect combination of direction, cinematography and acting. Michael Fassbender was spectacular, possibly his best performance yet. The movie…

Certified Copy

It was pure magic!! Each and every dialogue had an impact, every scene had its importance and there was nothing out of place. Everything just fell into a perfect harmony. A great piece of screenwriting. It’s not your usual drama movie. It is open to many interpretations but not like all those open ended movies….

The Insider

Inspiring!! This movie lies somewhere between a drama and a mild thriller. With Al Pacino and Russell Crowe taking the lead, the movie promises to deliver an all-powerful performance….and it surely did deliver.┬áHaving both written(screenplay) and directed by Michael Mann, I was expecting something on the lines of Heat; But it turned out to be…

Lion

A perfect way to tell a story!! The movie was able to articulate all the essential emotions…….nothing was overdone…..the drama was there but not too much…..just the right amount of everything. It is based on a true story so that doesn’t leave much room for enhancements in the story. The direction was good, so was…

Fences

Another great drama!! This is probably the best work of Denzel Washington, be it as an actor or a director. Those short monologues stole the show in every way, be it by Denzel or Viola Davis. They made it real!! It was powerful…….the whole of it….. the script, the acting and the message. It raises…

Manchester by the Sea

Just Beautiful!! In a Hollywood filled with action, thrillers, sequels……..it just feels so good to watch a ‘pure’ drama every once in a while. Movies like this are so hard to come by these days. Majority of the industry is just focused on box office earnings. Movies like these have a small run on the…

Hacksaw Ridge

Inspiring !! In a world like ours, how far can you go without doing away with the morals and ethics?? This movie is based on a true story. The protagonist, Desmond Doss, went on to save 75 lives on front lines (during WWII) without ever firing a single shot. This story of courage and conviction…

La La Land

Well…I think I’m a little late to the party. But somehow I only got the opportunity to watch it yesterday. This movie has already been praised so much all over the internet; has received so many awards that I think is enough to make everyone watch this movie. Emma Stone has been on the rise…

Florence Foster Jenkins

Heartwarming!! Enjoyable!! Inspirational!! Meryl Streep is wonderful as always, possibly the best choice for the role. Hugh Grant is great as a supporting actor. Everything just fits in beautifully; the story, the actors and the direction. It will make you laugh…..it will water your eyes….. and ultimately it will melt your heart away.┬áThis movie makes…
