Review: Crazy Ex-girlfriend

Shout-out to Aadisht for this recommendation. And though it may have led to the discovery of my new favorite writer/singer/comedian, I still want to register my peeve with the man here. This show took up a good 30-something hours of my life, after which I discovered that my recommend-er had seen, like, two episodes of... Continue Reading →

Why is TV so good?

Okay, so I have good news, bad news, better news and worse news. The bad news is that I met with a road accident last month.

Recently, while indulging in our staple dinner-diet of Seinfeld reruns with the husband, I screamed in delight when I noticed that she featured in one... Continue Reading →

So when I saw the movie had released on Hotstar, I made sure we dedicated one lazy Sunday evening to the home screening of the movie. (Shoutout to Airtel... Continue Reading →

The Feminism of Dangal

As late as I was on the scene, I watched Dangal last night. Possibly the last movie of 2016 that I will watch in a theatre (barring a miracle that results in me making it for an unearthly-timed afternoon show of La La Land), and definitely the first one of 2017. And what a way... Continue Reading →
