Review: Borat 2

The thing about Borat is that you either love him or hate him. If you have watched the original Borat film, skip this review. You are firmly entrenched in one of the two corners and nothing I am about to say will - or should - change your mind. For those unfamiliar with the franchise,... Continue Reading →

Review: About Time

Have you ever wanted to watch a movie again, even before the movie has actually ended? About Time made me check, several times during the movie, how much of it was left, just so I could calculate if I had time enough to watch it a second time. About Time is written and directed by...

Double Review: Nanette and Douglas

This can be a one line review: Hannah Gadsby's comedy can change the world. If you have not heard about the phenomenon that she is, let me catch you up. Hannah (Can I call you Hannah? Imma call you Hannah.) was a little known stand-up comic from Tasmania. She had been known in Australian comedy... Continue Reading →

Review: Hundred

What would you do if you had Hundred days to live? As Maddy, aka Manohar Dahiya, the struggling rapper from Haryana puts it, "Agar sabko pata chal jaave k life ki gaddi mein kitna tel bacha hai, vahin jaavenge jahaan jana hai." (If everyone knew how long they were going to live, they'd do exactly... Continue Reading →

Review: Panchayat

I have been a Jeetu fan from his Munna Jazbaati days during the early TVF era, and it remains a perennial treat to watch him perform. With Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhaan, this incredible actor got a well-deserved break into mainstream Hindi cinema. Because let's face it, his body of work online has already made him the Amitabh... Continue Reading →

Review: Hasmukh

Vir Das is a comedian who - if you follow his work - you either completely love or completely hate. Especially over the last few years when he has gotten significantly into political humour, his comedy evokes extreme reactions. To be fair, even a cat video would evoke extreme reactions in these polarized times. (Is... Continue Reading →

Review: Four More Shots Please

Four More Shots Please could just as easily be titled Pretty Privileged People Problems. Which is not to say that these people don't have problems. In fact, the show was almost defensive about it this season with multiple characters saying at some point during Season 2 to each other, "Just because you are privileged does... Continue Reading →

Review: Afsos

This is the best series I've watched in a long time. And as is evident from this blog, I've watched some series. Afsos, as the trailer would tell you, is the story of a man who wants to die but has failed at committing suicide eleven times in a row. Desperate in the face of... Continue Reading →

Review: Saand Ki Aankh

An older and wiser friend, who shall remain unnamed, once told me that the only way to get any new idea past an uncooperative man is to make him think it was his idea to begin with. I was constantly reminded of her sage advice during my favourite parts of Saand ki Aankh, the awe-inspiring... Continue Reading →
