Bell Bottom – My Flash Review!

Another Hindi film belonging to the spy thriller genre. Another film featuring Akshay Kumar as an undercover agent. Another film where the title is a bit bizarre for the genre (Remember ‘Baby’?) Set in the year 1984, Bell Bottom is about the exploits of this RAW agent (with code name Bell Bottom) who is “head... Continue Reading →

#Home – My Flash Review

Usually a review focusses on what the film is about. However, in this review of the delectably charming Malayalam film #Home, I would like to focus on what it is not about and you will soon understand why. #Home is not a murder mystery. Is not a revenge thriller. Is not about how a crime... Continue Reading →

Shershah – My Flash Review

Shershah which is streaming on Amazon Prime, is the real life story of one of our Kargil heroes – Capt. Vikram Batra. His story of valour is now part of popular folklore in India having seen the same almost every year on the Kargil Anniversary. Kargil war was the 1st televised war for India and...

Navarasa – My Flash Review

The much hyped and talked about anthology Navarasa is out on Netflix and as the title suggests it is a coming together of 9 Rasas or Emotions as short stories. Helmed and backed by some marquee names of South Indian cinema, the build-up and expectations were quite high and frankly that has turned out to... Continue Reading →

Sarpatta Parambarai – My Flash Review

Frankly I had no clue as to what the title referred to or the background till I watched this Pa.Ranjith’s film which was premiered on Prime Video this week. The interest to watch was of course due to being a “Pa. Ranjith film”. This outing follows his two back to back average films that too... Continue Reading →

Malik – My Flash Review

‘Malik’ has Fahadh Faasil as the hero and is helmed by Mahesh Narayanan. The last time this combo came together was for the experimental ‘C U Soon’, which turned out to be an interesting film. 'Malik' apparently was made before this and was awaiting a mega theatrical release but finally got released on the OTT... Continue Reading →

Haseen Dilruba – My Flash Review

Take the Drishyam -1 template which is – the protagonist commits an accidental murder and then he goes about covering all his bases so water tight that the police is not able to pin him down at the end and he goes scot free to live happily ever after. To this, make some minor changes.... Continue Reading →

Cold Case – My Flash Review

Cold Case is a Malayalam film that has recently dropped on Prime Video.  The well cut trailer promised an interesting film where the genre overlapped between being a murder mystery/investigative thriller and a Super Natural thriller. While watching the film, it is clear that the film fell victim to this overlap. A skull is discovered... Continue Reading →

Aarkkariyam – My Flash Review

I hadn’t known much about this film which was released on Prime a few weeks ago perhaps due to the lack of buzz and that’s a bit surprising and not surprising. Surprising because here’s another Malayalam film which is not the usual run of the mill type and attempts to explore a new theme. And... Continue Reading →
