Review: Insatiable

Insatiable is a dark comedy about a previously overweight girl turned present beauty queen, Patty Bladell, and her lawyer slash pageant coach, Bob Armstrong. What starts as an innocent enough chick flick about every bullied overweight teenager's dream-come-true somehow turns into a serial killer show by the end of season one. The show, while telling...

Review: Super 30

Super 30 has been panned for two main reasons by critics and (as much as I deplore the term) social justice warriors. One, for being an over-dramatized representation of the protagonist, Anand Kumar's life. And two, for Hrithik Roshan's brownface. It is offensive because why not choose a person who actually looks like Anand Kumar... Continue Reading →

Review: What If

What If stars Renée Zellweger - better known as our friendly neighbourhood Bridget Jones - in a role as polar opposite to Bridget Jones as ever could be written. Zellweger plays Anne Montgomery, a ruthless, aggressive, mysterious and scheming venture capitalist, who develops a seemingly unexplained interest in the struggling fledgling business of a young...

Review: Mard ko Dard Nahi Hota

Let me begin with a disclaimer about my personal choices and biases. I am as likely to enjoy an action movie as Gautam Gambhir is likely to pass on commentary moolah for an Indo-Pak match he once called to boycott. But Mard ko Dard Nahi Hota is not your average action film. It is a... Continue Reading →

Review: Good Omens

Good Omens is an uber high-quality TV adaptation of the best-selling Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman novel by the same name. As someone who has always found themselves rather intellectually subpar when it comes to appreciating either of those two authors, I have not read the book. So fellow dimwits may feel encouraged to read... Continue Reading →

Review: The Meddler

The Meddler stars, in the titular role, Susan Sarandon, known best to me for her role in F.R.I.E.N.D.S. as Cecilia Monroe, the Days of our Lives star, who Joey dates briefly and who is best known for her b****slaps across the face on the soap opera. In "The Meddler", she plays Marnie Minervini, a widow... Continue Reading →

Review: Chopsticks

Chopsticks is the story of Nirma Sahastrabuddhe, whose name alone inspires a dozen washing powder jokes in the movie, half a dozen of which made it to the trailer as well. (Someone was a bit too pleased with their “dho daala” puns). Nirma is a conservative, superstitious, too-naive-for-Mumbai middle-class girl who speaks fluent Mandarin because... Continue Reading →

Review: Splitting Up Together

Splitting Up Together is a story that begins where most end - a divorce. It is the story of a couple who agree that they cannot be together anymore, except that they also agree that they can neither afford a new house, nor want their three kids to grow up in a broken home. So... Continue Reading →

Review: Life Sentence

#LifeSentence is probably the most meh show based on the most un-meh premise I have ever seen. It is the story of a girl who was diagnosed with terminal cancer at fifteen and lived the rest of her teens and all of her adulthood as her final years. Until she gets cured. A clinic trial...
