This is a good movie! Like, laugh out loud until it hurts good! Sure, there are some plot contrivances at the end and a few comic bits can go too fast and thus the story too complicated for those who haven't watched enough Indian cinema. But really, this is a good entertaining movie. Drag your … Continue reading Dream Girl (2019) – Some Like it Hot on The Phone
I will not lie and say that I did not enjoy this movie. As someone who watched the series when it aired, got caught up in the drama, the costumes, the time period and all the nudges of progress shown in the show. It still remains one of my favourites, cheesiness, occasional unfortunate writing and … Continue reading Downton Abbey (2019) – The Beloved Series Gets A Grand Finale!
I haven't done a review in a while. Been in a kind of a slump, partly because I didn't want to burn myself out, then there's the fact that I didn't know what I should review and then - on a personal matter - a family tragedy happened unexpectedly that effected things.

Summary: In 1852 New Orleans the socialite Julie Preston is engaged to banker Preston "Pres" Dillard who refuses to dance to her tune … Continue reading Jezebel (1938) – A Dated Story with Wonderful Acting from Bette Davis
I think this was the first Indian Art House film that I watched as well as the first time I was introduced to Karisma Kapoor and Rekha as well as another wave of love for A. R. Rahman's music since he did the soundtrack, which is full of underrated classics. Since the movie tells the … Continue reading Zubeidaa (2001) – The Fairy Tale That Probably Was
Gah! This film got to me! It got me like stab to the heart and straight to the tear ducts at the end. So good, might even be better than the 1957 version. But that's the magic of this story, it can be done in any age with any kind of cast, and work like … Continue reading Love Affair (1939) – The Original Affair to Remember
Another Pakistani movie review! YouTube is really my friend when it comes to english subtitled content coming from South Asia. Yes, I know it is another movie about weddings. But weddings are fun! Or are supposed to be anyway and the way South Asian's do weddings is much more fun than the way the West … Continue reading Load Wedding (2018) – A Simple Story About Luck and Reaching Happiness within a Flawed System
