No Blood, Just Death

Not often do I see crime and gangster dramas without a blood splattering show. ‘Siberia’ was one such example. Less (in fact, none at all) blood, fewer dialogues, some steam to get you hot and an insanely predictable end. Love lost, cause lost, not sure why it all started in the first place. Gosh, IContinue reading “No Blood, Just Death”

Human Sans Logic

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”

Bazaar – Bizarre Market

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”

Blackmail – Vengeance is Inside

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”

சர்வம் தாளமயம் – Refreshingly Rythmic

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”

Twin Scare

Veronica I am not a great believer in the occult. But, there have been times of mesmerising helplessness when I start adoring the devil which ceases to exist without the goodness around us. But, Veronica has nothing to do with goodness, though. It’s about pain, recklessness, human disdain and much beyond, our hemisphere. I thoughtContinue reading “Twin Scare”

Netflix – My New IMAX

I love Cinema. Cinema is education and emancipation in the same terrain. Big screen cinema is what I live for. But in the last 18 months, I see it differently. You call it priorities or indulgence, big screen doesn’t woo me any more. Streaming is the new moolah in the streets of movie goons theseContinue reading “Netflix – My New IMAX”

Has Apple Dis-Evolved?

I am not sure, but am quite certain. A company and the co founder who were once emphatically accused of ambushing other products are in a wave of jilted revolution. If I can say that. Even though Apple is a super power and Steve Jobs’s DNA is the foundation of this company. But it isContinue reading “Has Apple Dis-Evolved?”

Taramani – Redemption

A ‘run of the mill’ Tamil film is the usual order of the day, but for films like ‘Taramani’ who try to lend a magic hand beyond furnished boundaries. Don’t literally sit on the title and wane about the correlation. I think correlation lies in the subject, not in the title. In fact, Harry PotterContinue reading “Taramani – Redemption”

Haraamkhor – Gutsy and Wretched

Yes. We have this society in us which possesses dark shades. Lives a simple life, appears to be noble, exploits women and their helplessness with élan. And yet, survive like worms and disappear to come back with evil. For a change, this protagonist doesn’t live enough. But it every story is fortunate enough, not everyContinue reading “Haraamkhor – Gutsy and Wretched”
