My Biggest Problems with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Who will change the future, you ask? Apparently, J.K Rowling will. Potterheads were in for a real treat this time – an overstuffed, haphazard treat with a plot more dizzyingly convoluted than – wait, scratch that. I don’t even have anything for comparison, to be honest. Noticed a lot of painfully canon-defying problems with the…

13 Reasons Why: Season 2 Review (Spoiler-free)

The sophomore outing of Netflix’s divisive teen drama, 13 Reasons Why is here. Last year, the show found itself in the midst of controversies particularly targeting its modus operandi of romanticising and sensationalising teenage suicide. Either incredibly bold, or tremendously irresponsible – the show’s approach of involving rape, bullying, slut-shaming & depression as subplots amidst…

Dunkirk: Review (Spoiler-free)

With his tenth feature film, writer-director Christopher Nolan mostly breaks away from his traditional roots and plunges his audience in what seems to be a rather intense and unprecedented depiction of the sheer brutality and palpable turmoil experienced by the NAF soldiers during 1940’s Operation Dynamo.

Rogue One: Star Wars Review (Spoiler-Free)

Part of the charm of watching these new reboots comes from experiencing the five decades-old series return to life in its former glory. Back…

Udta Punjab: Spoiler Free Review

“Drugs di maa di!” You already know what’s in store when a film arrives with a tagline such as that one. But what you probably didn’t know is that Abhishek Chaubey’s vivaciously spirited visualization of the fast-moving drug scene in Punjab is nothing short of an appalling masterpiece – one that does not shy away…

Airlift: Movie Review

This Review was written by me for MTTN (Manipalthetalk.net) on January 22nd, 2016. No, this is not Argo. There, I said it! One question that has been bothering most ever since they saw the feature trailer. Airlift is its own film, a spellbinding story that gradually builds tension along the way, and one that never…
