One of the most beautiful movies and an absolute gem to watch. Actors in this Film have given beyond their best. Amir would take you to his intense, dark and sad world. Kareena would take you to her mysterious yet flawless world with her acting. Rani’s portrayal as a helpless wife controlling her emotions is impressive. An absolute Psychological thriller.

Kahaani 2

Kahaani 2 is better than most of the movies, but unfortunately, it fails to make up a good sequel story to its first part ‘Kahaani’. Though not as good as the first part, it’s still an excellent watch than many other Bollywood movies. The suspense in it will keep you routed till the very end.

Talwar is one of those refreshers who never fails to give its audience a reality check on the weak and fragile system of this country. The Film did an excellent job by emphasizing on the real plague of the system. And yes, you guessed it right it’s based on 2008 Noida double murder case involving a teenage girl and her family’s servant.

A Movie dedicated to the neglected, brave and honest IT officers who act as wheels to India’s economy. The movie is crisp and ensures you stay tangled and engaged in the screenplay from the start to its end. Packed with punching dialogues, powerful sequences, humour, emotions, realistic plot make it a fantastic experience overall. The direction and performances add more value to all of it like icing on a cake. It’s a worth watch.


Don Movie Poster

Hardly anyone’s left to watch this movie, but if you are the one then do it soon because you are devoid of a lot of fun in your life! The movie plot was well moulded to create an amazing storyline. You would find two movies by the same name; the original Don movie came out in 1978 which stars Amitabh Bachchan, and the remake of the same movie came out in 2006 with Shahrukh Khan as the lead actor. Now it depends on you, which one would you prefer? Classic or Modern?

One of the best survival movies seen and quite surprising to see it in Bollywood, from acting to direction to editing to location everything is superb, you feel as if you’re there and it is happening with you. Has a bit of Castaway influence but on a different level, has local ambience. And Rajkumar, as usual, nailed it!

Madras Cafe

A brilliant and beautifully executed movie! It might simply be John Abraham and Nargis Fakri’s best work. Excellent direction by Shoojit Sirkar along with the screenplay, acting, direction, music, and the plot which were all amazing. It is a must-watch for cinephiles. So not the typical Bollywood masala movie but a no-nonsense, intense thriller.
