Laal Singh Chaddha – My Flash Review!

First the disclosures. I have not watched Forrest Gump. I watched Laal Singh Chaddha (LSC) in isolation as a film and my review has no comparative references to the original. I have also attempted to look at the film filtering the surround sound that preceded the release. The film opens with the longest disclaimer I... Continue Reading →

Jalsa – My Flash Review!

A Hit and Run case more often than not raises a morality question. Now, what if such an event involves a person who has built an image for herself of being very upright? What if by profession the person is a journalist and is known to raise tough questions to others day in and day... Continue Reading →

Gehraiyaan – My Flash Review!

First up, the title Gehraiyaan meaning “Depths” has a poetic look and feel to it which sets up our expectation meter.  Going by the teaser, one would expect the film to be about relationships and their depths. But, what if I say that the relationships in this film among people are not really so deep? ... Continue Reading →

Atrangi Re – My Flash Review!

I wondered why such a seemingly big film went for an OTT release just when smaller films were getting good response at the theatre. I got the answer half way through the movie. Atrangi Re opens with a bizarre sequence where the lead girl played by Sara Ali Khan is being chased by a few... Continue Reading →

Suryavanshi My (late) Flash Review!

If I say Rohit Shetty’s latest film Suryavanshi was much awaited, it would not be an exaggeration. That’s because in his last cop film Simba released in 2018 itself, he had shown a glimpse of what’s coming - Another addition to his cop universe after Singham and Simba but this time with his Khatron Ka...

Sardar Uddham – My Flash Review!

Sardar Uddham is not a film. It’s a lesson in history. At least to me. This Shoojit Sircar’s film, now streaming on Amazon Prime opens our eyes to many aspects of our history which somehow don’t feature in our history lessons related to India’s freedom struggle. It’s a biopic on Sardar Uddham Singh, a revolutionary... Continue Reading →

Thalaivi – My Flash Review!

The much awaited Jayalalitha (JJ) biopic is out and I caught up with the Hindi version of it which is streaming now on Netflix. I am stressing on the “Hindi” version because, it’s my guess that the treatment and therefore the end product would be quite different in Tamil.  First up, JJ’s real life is... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →
