Kaagar Movie Review: Engaging Political Thriller Backed By Stunning Performances! What’s Good: Amidst the trend of biopics and light-hearted movies, Kaagar comes as a refreshing change in Marathi movies. Backed by powerful performances and direction, the movie satisfies the hunger of political thriller.
What’s Bad: In an attempt of maintaining a niche treatment, some scenes go over the top.
Loo Break: The couple of passable songs will be a good time
Watch or Not?: If you are a fan of political thrillers and enjoy twisted plots, then it’s a must watch!
User Rating:
Set with a backdrop of rural politics in Maharashtra, Kaagar depicts the old saying that politics is like a game of Chess, in which each and every move is made with the destination in mind. The story majorly revolves arou..

Director: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
NOTE: Without letting out *mild* spoilers, this review wouldn’t have been possible. But, I promise not to spoil a single frame from you!
Avengers: Endgame Movie Review What’s Good: It comes as a game that solves the puzzle we’re living with since a year now but when everything falls into its place, we somehow wish how we were better with unanswered questions!
What’s Bad: It ends! How we’re not getting any more Iron Man-CapAm bromance, Quill-Thor wordplay, Hulk-Banner’s banter!
Loo Break: It’s of 180 minutes & there’s not a second vacant to even give it a thought! Probably the best place after swimming pool to loosen yourself up if it’s an e..

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 Review: 1 Thing Even Die-Hard Fans Missed!

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 Review: Before boarding the ship of war, let me declare this – GOT was never as witty as it has proved to be in the first two episodes before it all ends. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) is not the only one who’s cracking sharply written one-liners anymore.
The first episode laid the base for all the reunions, this one took them forward. Jon (Kit Harington) is clearly stuck in a daily soap situation between his cousin (not half-sister, as his mother was Lyanna Stark, sister to Ned) Sansa (Sophie Turner) and (incest) love of his life Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

Kalank Movie Review: Theatre More Pardesiya – Nahi Padharo Piya!

Kalank Movie Review Rating: 1/5 Stars (One star! & I’m being ‘too’ generous here)
Star Cast: Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Kunal Kemmu, Kiara Advani & still there’s not a single frame without cringe!
Director: Abhishek Varman
Kalank Movie Review: Theatre More Pardesiya – Nahi Padharo Piya! What’s Good: If you’re opting to watch this, you have a good 166 minutes to decide what you’re doing with your life!
What’s Bad: Some people will buy the grandness and rush to the theatres, but alas, the days of watching a YRF movie just to drool over Switzerland are long gone!
Loo Break: Challenge yourself by controlling the tsunami of frustrated emotions for 166 minutes! Don’t think of a break this time. If you’re in, you deserve it
Watch or Not?: Don’t even if the visuals attract you! Just skip it and save yourself of some hard-hitting dramatic torture

Kalank Movie Review Quicker: Are Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt & Half A Dozen Other Actors Worth The Drama?

Kalank Movie Review Quicker: Starring Varun Dhawan as Zafar, Alia Bhatt as Roop and half a dozen other actors, the story is set in Husnabad in the year 1946. It’s divided between the people of belonging to a Royal family (Chaudharys) and Muslims.
Before getting into the main review, I’ve got some feedback about making my thoughts clear in the quick review. Will refrain from doing the same today, with getting just into the story and some technical aspects till the interval.

Satya (Sonakshi Sinha) is suffering from a fatal disease, and for some reason wants Roop (Alia Bhatt) to accompany her in their castle for the remaining time of her life. Roop has a challenging request (can’t reveal, because spoiler) but agrees to go with her. There she meets with Satya’s husband Dev (Aditya Roy Kapur).

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1 Review: Witness ‘Beginning Of The End’ From ‘The End Of The Beginning’

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1 Review: As I gulp yet another sip of my third cup of dark coffee, I divert my thought process about the ‘beginning of the end’ to the ‘end of the beginning’. For the time being, let’s label the premiere episode as ‘War Reunites Them All’.
Jon Snow (Kit Harington) meets Arya (Maisie Williams) and Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright), Arya meets Gendry (Joe Dempsie) & Sandor Clegane aka The Hound (Rory McCann), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) meets Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Samwell Tarley (John Bradley) meets Jon and please, hold your breath for the last one – let’s not reveal it! (Yes, that’s the same amount of disappointment everyone will have with the ending of episode 1).

The Tashkent Files Movie Review Rating: 2.5/5 Stars (Two and a half stars)
Star Cast: Shweta Basu Prasad, Mithun Chakraborty, Pankaj Tripathi, Pallavi Joshi, Mandira Bedi
Director: Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri
The Tashkent Files Movie Review By A Political Illiterate But A Movie Buff! NOTE: Before moving forward to the main review, please note, I’m a political illiterate and have a pretty little Google knowledge about Lal Bahadur Shastri’s case. So, I’ll just talk about how the movie is without pointing out the ‘factual’ errors in the film.
What’s Good: The in-room sequences and the debates holds your attention but it’s not for the majority of the time, there comes the ‘What’s Bad’ section – read below
What’s Bad: Poor editing and the protagonist’s character has way too many flaws and the credit goes to mediocre writing
Loo Break: The movie is 144 minutes long and there comes a time when you’re forced to take one
Watch or Not?: Watch it only if you have any idea about the case and you..

Following a similar template as its predecessor, the show yet again brings the three siblings together on a road trip for a motive. Chandan (Vyas) is now a hot-shot novelist as there’s a film being made on his bestseller novel Tripling, based on his road trip with the siblings. Chitvan, who has gone through this image transformation – from a wild & free explorer to a mature and sober father of a toddler. He’s a father, but is he married? Without giving any spoilers, the woman in his life is a strict social activist Sheetal (Kubbra Sait).

Shazam! Movie Review Rating: 3.5/5 Stars (Three and a half stars)
Star Cast: Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Djimon Hounsou, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans
Director: David F. Sandberg
Shazam! Movie Review: An ‘Electrifying’ Attempt By DC To ‘Lighten’ Up The Genre! What’s Good: Though he looks like your regular superhero with a weird costume, but trust me Shazam has a lot of charm hidden under his cape!
What’s Bad: The story is divided into two parts – one that fools around and is funny, another in which it takes itself too seriously than required – the latter one is the dragging part!
Loo Break: Neah! Seriously? Loosen yourself up and just get lost in DC’s universe!
Watch or Not?: You’ll not even ask this if you know anything about Shazam; even if you don’t, just go and get to know about him because he’s all set to be a big thing in the coming years!

Romeo Akbar Walter Movie Review: Don’t Fall For The Patriotic Trap!

Romeo Akbar Walter Movie Review Rating: 2/5 Stars (Two stars)
Star Cast: John Abraham, Jackie Shroff, Mouni Roy, Sikander Kher and a whole lot of uncalled pop-patriotism!
Director: Robbie Grewal
Romeo Akbar Walter Movie Review: Don’t Fall For The Patriotic Trap! What’s Good: The fact that it’s informative and that’s it! You could go through a well-written history book for the same though
What’s Bad: It takes the audience for granted & tests the patience at regular intervals! In order to narrate a brave tale, the makers forget how to properly execute it
Loo Break: Not that you’ll need it per se but the boring narration will force you to take many!
Watch or Not?: If you’re going in with the hopes of getting a film like Uri: The Surgical Strike or Parmanu, just don’t!
User Rating:
The narration starts with explaining the birth of Bangladesh and how the situations were there during the Indo-Pak war of 1971. After a few very poorly showcased about the information, we see an old man..
