• The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox

    ★★★★½

    A pure non-worldy pixie dust yet a very real love story. Food comes in all flavours so does love.

    It's a[ ]rom[n]atic as a well brewed coffee, deliciously with-holds the plot line like a well cooked chicken gravy and ends on a sweet note of hope like any traditional dessert.

    It's a full meal without peppy[er] stuff to disturb the smooth flow. Watch this if you are a foodie or a classic love story lover or a fan of Irfan Khan ji.
    .
    It's shockingly intersting given the premise and the flow of the story. Get stunned by each and every detailed ingredient[Technicality] of the film.

  • Looper

    Looper

    ★★★

    Predestination + Terminator + Primer.
    But it isn't good as any of the above.
    .
    The sole thought of inducing high octane action sequences alongside family sentiment is really good. But branding it as a good time travel film would be ridiculous.
    .
    The ending, though it seemed to tie the knots, it has left a lot of open threads and the end hair brush by Emily blunt gives rise to new doubts.
    .
    Watch it with liberal jurisdiction over…

  • Wild Tales

    Wild Tales

    ★★★★★

    Wild tales is a 6 story anthology film with a runtime of 120 min. It's a thriller drama with tales of revenge. It deals with the most common situations but when the actions/ reactions are extreme. We'd have come across most of the 6 incidents in our life, as a victim or as the antagonist. We'd also have the same thought process of the characters in the film but we never dare to take the step and go to the…

  • Palm Springs

    Palm Springs

    ★★★½

    B99 + HIMYM!❤️
    .
    Solid story line, mesmerizing performances, decent comedy and love track! Don't these all factors factor this movie from the regular cliche rom-coms? Hell, yeah! They do!
    .
    An independent woman, not a cliche story line, meaningful philosophies and not so pixie dust love story makes this an unique and a stand-alone romcom!
    .
    Zombieland : Undead comedy
    Palm Springs: Infinite time loop comedy!

    .
    Say cheers to the rom-com of the year! ( 4 months with covid surely feels like a year 😬 or wait? Am I struck in a time loop 😉😂? )

    After

    ★★★½

    Possibly the lowest average rated film which I'm reviewing.
    .
    One sentence: My favourite GUILTY PLEASURE film!

  • Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★½

    When Call me by your name is made with 2 female leads, it'd be a bit less mesmerizing and magical than this.!
    .
    Subtle romance and pixie dust love! The love between two women explored in the best way possible!
    .
    The leads and the 2 supporting actors are at their best! The cinematography and the storyline is as beautiful as France in the 18th century!
    .
    You'd need to take in gasps of air in the last 2 minutes! ❤️

    ★★

    My rating: 2/5.
    .
    0.5 for the lead's performance, 1 for cinematography and periodic accuracy, 0.5 for BGM ( TBH... There isn't a unique track... But there's an amalgamation of beautiful and eerie tracks! )
    .
    Story wise.... After 20-30 min into the film you can guess the climax.... Screenplay is lethargic and tiresome.... It's a slapstick story line which is so routine and has FORCEFUL FEMINISM... It's good that feminism is induced into it, but forcing it is really…

  • Coherence

    Coherence

    ★★★★

    A microbudgeted sci-fi film with not soo complex astrophysical touch laced with drama which includes marital issues and past sexual tensions.
    .
    The actors did their best. That's a single line which speaks volumes. No-one is very dumb, they've brought all possibilities into discussions just like the multiple realities out there.
    .
    The story line is amazing, but it's the screenplay and the matured handling of the story to make it seem a bit perplexed and finally putting together all…

  • Artemis Fowl

    Artemis Fowl

    TBH, this is one of my fav Novel series when I was a kid/ teenager! I loved every bit of it and imagined a perfect cinematic version.
    .
    But why!?!? Why do they've to make it so badly, they've the budget, they've the crew but nah! It never reached my expectations even at one single point!
    .
    Give it a try if you so badly want to watch the cinematised version of your favourite novel and PS: get ready to be disappointed 😖

  • Gone Girl

    Gone Girl

    ★★★½

    I definitely agree that this film is as amazing as any thriller could get with THE BEST PLOT TWIST. But, I've given it a good 3.5 for a sole reason. For some reason, I loved the book more [ ik this is pretty common, but this film is one of the rare set of films which could near it's source material ] and it has an unprecedented impact on me. Hence, my heart couldn't agree with my mind to give it a 4/5.
    .
    PS: Ben Affleck and rosemund deserve special mention for enacting it soo well!

  • Pulp Fiction

    Pulp Fiction

    ★★★★½

    A perfect masterpiece from Quentin Tarantino. [ Btw Inglorious basterds is my fav work of him, but this is a masterpiece too, obv! ]
    .
    The satires, Philosophical relevance, unfolding of drama, performances and the screenplay. OMG! I think they're one of a kind and are a benchmark for comparison with the epitomes.
    .
    Probably, this screenplay was the first of it's kind and set a trend from then. A must watch I reckon.

  • Inception

    Inception

    ★★★★½

    I was doing my schooling when I watched this film. I still remember my mind getting fucked back then coz of the film. Obv any rewatch now makes me think of this as a v well made thriller with a strong storyline and amazing Technical values.
    .
    I like this film coz of 4 varying reasons:
    1) Strong Technical values, one of the most visually stunning stories.
    2) Well crafted thriller, has good adrenaline rush moments.
    3) Meaty story with…
