Roohi (2021) movie review
Every once in a while there comes along a movie which is projected to be a much awaited movie but it turns out to be a damp squib. This movie Roohi that is now streaming on Netflix was theatrically released on 11 March 2021. Due to the Pandemic situation, only those films releasing on OTT platforms are being reviewed. Roohi appears to be starting off from where we left off in Stree with Rajkumar Rao again donning a role of a village bumpkin who reports for a fraud type newspaper called something like Jazirabad Jaljala which does'nt even make a wave leave alone a jaljala which means tsunami. Rao is paired with a bumchum in the name of Atthanni or is it Katanni played by an irritating and over the top hamming Varun Sharma, such a waste of his so called acting talents. All through the movie as soon we feel now the story is building up it drops like a tonne of bricks with the two bumpk ....

Chhalaang movie review
Chhalaang is another OTT original feature film release during the present Covid times and this time it's streaming on Amazon Prime. Lately we have been hearing such names like Chak-de, Dangal, Panga, which point to a desi flavour in tales of inspiration in sports. They are comparable to similar offerings in Hollywood of fight and motivation. Generally such stories are drawn form real life. As the name Chhalaang suggests this movie too deals with the same genre I.e. sports but the inspiration is from a hurt to the ego of one man as, the movie set out to be Montu's story of goof and love but there is a jump literally midway. It changes to a story of the underdog. Though everyone has their respective favourites in sports but one's heart surely goes out for the underdog. The movie is set in a quintessential town of Haryana in North India. Indians love their heroes in the field of sport ....

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. It seems that the makers set out to make something good with the kind of themes and story ideas at their disposal but somewhere in the intervening period they lose their way and the story meanders and hurtles towards its climax. Same is the case with Ludo, it starts out with high expectations as a bearded Anurag Basu (the director of the movie) and ....

Ragini MMS - movie review
Ragini MMS is a sensuous paranormal film, shot as in real time! It is a new trend which even the big studios in Bollywood adapt to - come up with a fresh concept, gather new comers and shoot the entire movie in one schedule making it possible to finish the film on a shoe string budget. Spend a load some on publicity that the initial weekend itself fetches them back the whole investment and the flick is then declared as a hit. Ragini MMS movie review... Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Films has taken only 25 days to shoot and cost them less than tenth an average bollywood flick costs. The outcome is better-quality than expected. Ragini MMS is a spine-chilling date movie which really scares you. An unconventional story mixed with horror and sex, and this is what it makes it different from the usual horror stuff in Bollywood. Raj Kumar Rao (who was the lover boy in Ekta Kapoor’s Love S ....

Newton - hindi movie review
A political satire, black-comedy that has been widely appreciated across several international film festivals is all about a day in the lives of election officials while conducting elections in the interiors of Chattisgarh state. Newton Kumar (Rajkummar Rao) is a presiding officer solely in charge of supervising the conduction of elections in the notorious troubled place. Newton follows the election commission manual strictly and primarily wants the electorate to come out and vote for the candidate of their choice. He has made up his mind to encourage as many voters to come out of their homes and cast their vote, one of the biggest pillars in a democracy. Newton faces an uphill task with other officials around him who are not keen on encouraging the tribals to cast their vote. There is an armed officer (Pankaj Tripathi) who happens to be the secutiry incharge for providing security t ....
