    12th Fail

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A long film with an overstretched and underwhelming element of our protagonist going through numerous wins and losses. 

    The movie starts really well, with some scenes that indicate an art house take on UPSC prep, but the film devolved into your regular Bollywood take with unnecessary background scores that don’t add much to the emotional weight of a scene. Some scenes are stitched together haphazardly, making scenes feel aloof, but when it does come together well, it ends with half baked supposedly witty dialogues. 

    Sets the bar high for expectations but gives you very less to be satisfied.

    ★★★½

    Cute popcorn flick. Ben Affleck's Phil Knight was weirdly funny. A bit overdramatised for what I prefer from a biographical film.

  • The Creator

    The Creator

    ★★½

    Beyond being visually stunning, creator has little to offer to the philosophical narrative of man vs machine. Felt like an amalgamation of old/overused concepts and narratives.
