  • X-Men: Apocalypse

    X-Men: Apocalypse 2016

    ★★ Watched 21 May, 2016

    I went into this movie with zero expectations and still walked out disappointed. At 2h24m, the movie is long, but still feels rushed. And as a movie, it feels strictly OK. En Sabah Nur feels anything but menacing and much of the film is spent on CGI destruction, so you barely get any actual action to enjoy. The only part of the film that you end up enjoying, and is quite good comic relief, is when Quicksilver is on screen. 

    If you're a fan of the X-Men franchise, you should watch it. If you aren't, well, you aren't losing out.

  • Sairat

    Sairat 2016

    ★★★ Watched 04 May, 2016

    After all the Hype that was generated around this movie, Sairat... disappoints. It's actually two different movies - one you're shown before the Interval and one you're shown after. The former is fantastic — great pacing, amazing acting, surreal music and all of this comes off in style. The second half, unfortunately, feels like a pint of Budweiser after a long night of the world's finest liquor. Although true to Nagraj Manjule's style, the second half of the film feels slow, boring and downright unnecessary in most parts. 

    Should you watch it? YES!
    Will you like it? May be
    Did I? Not at all.

    Rise of the Planet of the Apes 2011

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Nov, 2011

    What an absolute entertainer. The movie has you hooked right from the beginning and doesn't let you take your eyes off the screen till the very end. The screenplay and cinematography and fantastic and make the whole movie.

    The visual effects on the other hand? Wow! WETA has done an bloody fantastic job. Andy Serkis marvels in his role and no other actor couldn't done it any justice.

  • Harishchandrachi Factory

    Harishchandrachi Factory 2009

    ★★★★★ Watched 18 Feb, 2010

    Harishchandrachi Factory takes you back to the 1900s and details the journey of one man, his passion for "moving pictures" and how India's first feature film was produced.
    Nanu Madhav portrays Dadasaaheb Phalke beautifully and perhaps, one of the best characters I've seen in any film.
