If man has to choose between money and man, he will go straight for money. In a world of such perennial aura and superlative torrents, ‘Triple Frontier’ offers solace. But I am quite deterred by the aftermath depicted. How on earth do you manage to infiltrate in to the den of a most wanted NarcoContinue reading “Human Sans Logic”
Certainly not ‘Wolf of Wall Street’, but tries to come close. Share market, ‘Bullish’ vibes, the inevitable passion to brutally excel in what you play for and deny the eventual – these are traits for the ones who dare to enter this playground with balls aplenty. ‘Bazaar’ falters in the last 30 minutes or so,Continue reading “Bazaar – Bizarre Market”
When does a person blackmail another person? When he realises that he is being screwed upright behind his back and still expected to believe that things are hunky dory between the mundane episodes of life. Well, that’s exactly the plot here. What you are bracing for is an entertaining series of encounters and the fetishContinue reading “Blackmail – Vengeance is Inside”
Madhu grew up in a land of priests and religious fanaticism. Not surprisingly, his thought process was quite inclined towards his Father’s during his younger days. But as days went by and he grew older, time and education taught him a wider aspect of his faltering childhood. Close to his mother but in awe ofContinue reading “A Seer’s Rage – Episode 2”
I have not watched a musical for a long time now. They don’t make classic musicals any more. But ‘சர்வம் தாளமயம்’ bought back poignant moments in a musical journey which stands out as simple, light hearted and make-you-feel-good drama with an outstanding soundtrack, which in many ways describes A R Rahman – The Master Composer.Continue reading “சர்வம் தாளமயம் – Refreshingly Rythmic”
Another boring crusade in to a world of torrid monotony and mindless terrain. Superstar, the Actor in you escaped years back but watching you in such run-of-the-mill scripts makes it even more painful. I will wait for the classic that is due for eternity now.
Light, tender and emotional. From a motivation per se, this might do a thing or two to your dwindling prospects. But this thread is not strong enough to infiltrate the heinous needles of this industry. Watch it if this is your get-away weekend to find solace.
A land of spiritual resurgence. We need messiahs, someone who can turn this world upside down, in the right way. Not a torch bearer, but we need tools for sustenance. Madhuprayan George Roy was born in Banaras, India to a Hindu Father and Catholic Mother. His father belonged to an ancestral Priest family and oneContinue reading “A Seer’s Rage – Episode 1”
‘Bird Box’ stormed Netflix when it hit the streaming giant a month ago. I am still wondering why. An alien power that powers suicidal and psychotic behaviour to literally end a civilization that’s busy being normal people who are going to work, have families and where women get pregnant. But, what’s the point? I amContinue reading “Bird Box – Eyes Underrated”
If ‘Narcos’ had not happened to me, I would have rendered kind words for ‘Loving Pablo’. ‘Narcos’ was such a stunning and provocative account of the (de)famed Drug Lord that everything else pales in comparison. And, so does this film. Sorry, Javier and Penelope. I love you guys, but you picked up a stalemate thisContinue reading “Again, But No Love..”
Alone, defiant and invincible. Not for money but for principles. Can you? Don’t think, just watch.
He was not just a revolutionary, he was a visionary and an exemplary leader who was an epitome of courage and resilience. His contribution to history was much beyond our road to Independence and the adversity of being caught in a web of political dominance that saw his ultimate oblivion in a disgraceful fashion. HeContinue reading “The Unsung Martyr”
