Sanjana’s note on Mimi

Posted in reviews, the good on July 28, 2021 by munna


Mimi is entertaining and I liked the way the film seamlessly weaves the story with a linear approach. Nothing wrong if a woman speaks against aborting the baby. That point is pivotal for the ensuing drama, comedy and fights. If critics dont understand this basic cinematic liberty, then let them watch Sherni. Films are meant to entertain and not to preach explicitly. the preaching should be subtle than in the face.

tonymontana’s viewings (Updated)

Posted in Continuing, the good on July 24, 2021 by munna

Hungama2

We were used to watching a crop of fine character actors (Paresh Rawal, Tiku Talsania, and Rajpal yadav) screaming at the top of their voices back in Priyadarshan’s comedies back in the day. In that respect, Hungama 2 is nostalgic at a time when comedy in Hindi cinema has set the bar pretty low. But the positives end there. A few laugh-out loud moments and that’s it.

tonymontana on Malik

Posted in reviews, the good with tags , , , on July 20, 2021 by munna


A little too ambitious and packs in a lot. There’s politics, communalism, a godfather like figure, smuggling, corruption, scheming family members having their own vested interests, the justice system, relationship problems, mother-son dynamics and so on, but if the film wasn’t so sharply edited (a little too well-edited, maybe, for its own good), this could have been well over 3.5 hours long! Strangely, though, the director pulls it off, and is ably supported by an ensemble cast which hardly hits a false note.

An Jo on BLACK WIDOW

Posted in reviews, the good with tags , , , , on July 19, 2021 by munna

Watched BLACK WIDOW in the cinema hall in XD box version. What hell of a difference the viewing experience it makes! With each and every bullet ricocheting and creating goosebumps up your arse, it was a thrilling ride. The last time I watched a movie in theater was in December 2020 and that too only for Nolan, for TENET. The superbly shot Bombay sky-scraper sequence, the initial opera attack, and the reverse entropy scene, those were the highlights for me in terms of cinematic experience.

Saket on Haseen Dilruba

Posted in reviews, the good on July 10, 2021 by munna

A jilted lover, a lonely, unsatisfied housewife and an unwanted distraction in the form of a handsome hunk, Haseen Dilruba starts off with a bang — quite literally! The plot involves a small town called Jwalapur where a Delhi-based girl finds it hard to adjust to the rhythms of her household chores and a husband who’s a meek, docile nerd. Things come to a boil when his hunk of a cousin enters the scene and makes advances towards Rani Kashyap, who does not hesitate to reciprocate his feelings. Like the fictitious Hindi pulp novelist quoted in the film, Dinesh Pandit, this is a film that reads like a pulp novel that’s hard to put down, once you get started.

Milkha Singh dies of COVID-19 complications aged 91

Posted in Obituary on June 18, 2021 by munna

Milkha Singh, one of India’s greatest ever sportspersons, died of COVID-19 complications in Chandigarh late on Friday night, aged 91.

Known as “The Flying Sikh”, he won four Asian Games gold medals but his greatest performance was his fourth-place finish in the 400m final of the 1960 Rome Olympics. Milkha was leading at the 250m mark when he (in)famously slowed down, looked at the pack, was overtaken and beaten to an Olympic medal by 0.1 seconds. In an interview years later, Milkha described that moment as his ‘worst memory’ after the death of his parents.
