Raaz Reboot Review

Raaz Reboot

Has any good ever come out of a family moving to a new place in hopes of a new, rejuvenating lifestyle? And have 'they' really done everything 'they' can to make a movie out of it and present the same to us on the celluloid? No. A resounding NO. 'Raaz reboot', a movie which is as clumsy as its title, confirms to these questions and presents the viewer yet another half-baked, brainless and altogether gawky picture for our beloved Fridays.

Jai Gangaajal movie review

"The wine is old but it doesn't taste better."

It is unfortunate, rather sad, that this film contains the name of and is considered a sequal to an immensely greater film 'Gangaajal'. There are stark similarities between the two and yet, this one is nothing but a failed rip-off of the original. When you watch 'Jai Gangaajal', you cannot help but remember similar scenes from the first movie and you wonder how enthralling they were. Inadvertently, you compare them and you find that the one folding before you right then is a tomfoolery.

Aligarh movie review

"The movie suffers because the makers lack belief in the theme"

I am perplexed at the superficiality with which few films are revered just because they have an underlying liberal or modern view of the society at large. Such themes, although important on a social basis, are those that mar the objective discourse of a movie and throw you into vicarious yet peripheral emotions. Aligarh is a victim of this very flaw- both in filmmaking and the subsequent reception.

And so, this post is a look at the different nominations for various categories and my predictions for the Academy Award. For some of them, I am going to talk about my prediction while for others, just the name would suffice. Others, which I do not have the requisite knowledge/exposure about, I leave to other Cinephiles out there to decide. Here it goes-

The All New Tata ZICA Hatchback: It's #Fantastico

Fifteen years ago, Tata Motors (then TELCO) came up with a supermini Indica for the Indian roads and revolutionized the Indian Automotive Industry for ever. It was able to achieve what no-one had done prior to it in India- It materialized its vision, realized its dream, the dream of developing the most modern Indian Car indigenously. And this time, it has come up with something even more fantastico- The Hatchback Zica. The car launch is expected in Feb-March as Tata takes its best foot forward. Here, we look at some peppy features of the car, the momentum surrounding it and why it is the best bet for its intended price segment-
