In defense of Rory Gilmore An honest review : A Year in Life

It’s not everyday that a story decides to redo its ending. The creators take another go at what should have been. For Gilmore Girls and Amy Sherman and Daniel Palladimo, it was exactly that. And man, there were a lot of expectations on the revival. Almost everyone I know is talking about it, what they…

Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight : True Romance

Three years ago, a friend told me about two movies and ‘Nothing happening in the movie except conversations.’ and I think, Well, the guy who made the movies must have a lot of guts to have faith in his audience. Little did I know Richard Linklater, did not only have faith but a heart and…

The Fountain : 10 years of ingenuity

Admit it, there are some movies that people, in general just don’t like. These movies are just too abstract, too out there, too ambitious too confused for them.

Kapoor and Sons : Heart, Body, Soul

Karan Johar and Dharma Productions prove that they do family like no other. I have always believed, when it comes to family, and people, and understanding the family dynamics, Karan Johar does it the best. He isnt without his flaws, he is a victim to the vanity and the gloss that goes in and around…

Coldplay’s Hymn for the Weekend : Offensive?

This is the official video for the Hymn for The Weekend, A song in the latest Coldplay album, Head full of Dreams. When this album released, I, like every Coldplay fan was so excited about it, waiting for it for days; downloading it the first chance I got. But contrary to my excitement, the album…

Tamasha : Imtiaz Ali did it again

Everyone I know asked me the same question today. How was Tamasha? Its Imtiaz Ali, A R Rahman, Irshad Kamil : Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. A movie couldn’t ask for a better team to work with and as viewers, its all of ours dream come true. Well. Let me start by saying. Tamasha isn’t…
