Ludo (2020) movie review
Netflix's latest offering as their original feature film,  Ludo the eponymous board game which everyone as a child would have played. Lately it seems to have caught on the fancy of young and old alike in it's online Avatar. It sounds like an unlikely name for a movie and does aroused curiosity. Ludo, the movie juxtaposes this game as and with the game of life. One gets excited and is expectant to see something different or new, as for the last few offerings on the various OTT platforms are anything but entertaining or even vaguely logical.

Laxmii (2020) movie review
This movie was awaited for sometime because people wanted to see Akshay Kumar's daring transgender look in a saree. Laxmii released on OTT platform of Disney Hotstar on the 9th of November 2020. There were some fantastic promos, great posters, super trailers. All of which pointed to an entertaining masala horror movie with good dose of comedy put in to make it a universally watchable. There was also the controversy about its name which was then changed just before release from Laxxmi Bomb to Laxmii. All this was a sure shot formula for success at the hustings. No such luck though as the film Laxmii turned out to be a damp squib. A bomb that never went off. One sat through the whole movie for that moment to come, where the pent up expectation were answered but it never arrived. The start was punchy and it did give a scare down the spine. Then the scene with Akshay busting the myth o ....
