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..”

The greatest sinner on this planet earth survived justice. But considering them bleakly human, were they guilty? A story of irreversible pain and pay back, a singular and historic man hunt to capture the most dangerous Nazi officer (after the man himself) and bring him to justice for what is best described as ‘monstrously beyondContinue reading “Guilt Beyond Justice?”
Aptly worded. People, circumstances and guns. 1920s. Barcelona. Political unrest, fight for freedom and liberation. The bloodshed between anarchists and cops. Both wanted peace, but never knew how to get it. Ideals and loyalty existed but we wanted more. Greed and power struggle replaced the former. Result? Another massacre of law and innocent people.
A story that takes you through a journey of hope, introspection and understanding relationships. Matured, teenagers or seniors – it’s all about perspectives in life. It’s not being right or wrong, good or bad. Be yourself, satisfaction will follow suit.
They don’t make players like you any more. If there was someone I admired after ‘God’, it was you. There will never be another Rahul Dravid. Happy Bday, Sir!
It is a story of a provocative writer, an extremely sensitive human being and above all, a victim of the evil time. Saadat Hasan Manto’s story deserves to be told, heard and understood. Well, the context first, the writer later. You can burn the screens, but can we destroy the conscience?
