Kaamyaab is the satirical story of a yesteryears side actor who(along with other side actors) is given the term Aaloo( citing the reason that Aaloo toh kisi ke saath bhi chal jaata hai). One day, he comes to know that he has completed 499 films in his career. And so his quest begins to sign off with a bang with his 500th film. We rank it first on the list of Best Movies on Netflix released in 2020. Read More…

Based on a book by the same name written by Manu Joseph, the story is dark and socially relevant, very relevant actually. The screenplay is just so perfectly written that it has left me in awe. The black humour is generously sprinkled throughout with so many social issues cleverly integrated in the run-time. It makes you laugh but towards the end the emotions come through and you start feeling sorry for the child. Read More…

Ludo  is the story comprising of multiple stories of multiple characters from different walks of life and how their lives are intertwined with one another. Well I’ll leave it at that but the story is a good one. In the past we have often seen these convoluted stories in Movies like Cloud Atlas or even Super Deluxe. But these films are a rarity as they are a risky proposition. Read More…

Andhaghaaram is the story of primarily three characters with supernatural elements in each of their stories. I cannot reveal anything more in the story as it might lead to spoilers. But, it is possibly the most layered and esoteric story that you will ever see in a horror movie. Read More…

Kappela is the story of Jesse who falls in love with Vishnu, an auto rickshaw driver whom she has never met. What happens next? I have often said, the simplest of premises make for compelling stories. And it applies here too. The story is sweet and simple . The screenplay is something that always amazes me when it comes to Movies from South India simply because they do not just stick to this one genre. Read More…

Extraction is the story of a mercenary who is deployed in Dhaka to ‘extract’ a young boy who is kidnapped by a local drug lord. I know what you are thinking….what is new in the story right? Well, I didn’t sign up for the story or for the matter the screenplay. The screenplay has its share of twists but with action at its epicentre, it hardly gives you time to breath and digest things. Read More…

Set in Delhi, Axone is the story of a group of migrants from the northeast who want to prepare Axone for their friend who is getting married except that its pungent odour might attract some unwanted attention from their neighbours. The story is simple yet outstanding and does give a glimpse of the culture from the northeast, something that I love. The screenplay is subtle and while the basic theme is maintained throughout. Read More…

Raat Akeli Hai is the story of a cop investigating a murder at a house. What seems like a straight forward case holds a few unexpected twists. The premise is similar to the Hollywood flick Knives Out, but thankfully the similarities end there. Read More…

Cargo is the story of an astronaut whose job is to successfully receive deceased people from Earth (referred to as Cargo) and transmit them into the afterlife. And soon, he has an assistant too! Such an intriguing and unique concept! Read More…

Mank is a biography on the life of Herman Mankiewicz aka Mank who is best known for his original screenplay of Citizen Kane which is an all time classic. He was awarded the Academy Award too for his work. But why is there a controversy? Read More…
