Love you Zindagi

  Love You Zindagi, Thank You Life For Being An Awesome Teacher Dear Zindagi, You have been springing up new surprises one after the other. Not just in the last six months, maybe seven, but since the last 28 years. Some have been mind-boggling, some eventful and some that have made me cringe, cry and…

Arrival | Movie Review

In our day and age, the very idea that we may not be alone in this universe is one which not only inspires romance in the way we see ourselves as a part of the greater creation but also infuses fear of the unknown forces which may exist outside our realm. Movies like Independence Day, Men in Black…

Dear Zindagi | Movie Review

Conversationally good movies engage the audience through the basic yet cardinal method of propelling the story through a series of interactions which appeal to our intellect. From classic examples of Hollywood like the Before series, Annie Hall, Carnage or The Man from Earth to the Bollywood counterparts like Choti Si Baat and other movies from the…

That historically epic night when the long-awaited Best Actor Oscar was announced, the whole world sat with bated breath as the man of the moment, Leonardo DiCaprio stepped up to the mic for the customary Oscar Speech. Considering his illustrious career, one would think he would have a lot to say, pay his gratitude and respects…

Series Spotlight : “Black Mirror”

In an article I came across recently, Ursula K. Le Guin who is a celebrated science fiction writer proclaimed interestingly how science fiction writers and proponents can stand up to social fallacies and be the agents of change.
