Tumhari Sulu – A Sweet, Lively Dose Of Reality

If I could tell you what I think of Tumhari Sulu in a nutshell, I couldn’t. That’s because there are a lot of positives about the film, but there are also a number of ‘buts’.

Justice League – Enjoyable But Has Lot of Room For Improvement

First off, let’s get one fact out of the way. I’m a sucker for good superhero action films. If you can get me a little wit, a little sass, lots of well-choreographed action, and a little humor in one film, then I’m down hook, line, and sinker. And Justice League does that very well for me.
Of course, it’s no Thor: Ragnarok, because that’s unparalleled in my opinion. But you get the general idea.

Qarib Qarib Singlle – Refreshingly Hilarious, Keeps Your Attention

Qarib Qarib Singlle is the story of Yogi (Irrfan) and Jaya Shashidharan (Parvathy Thiruvothu). Yogi and Jaya have completely conflicting personalities. While Yogi is a rich businessman who is modest about his wealth, carefree, and lives in the present, Jaya works in insurance, and feels the need to keep people around her happy.

Thor: Ragnarok – Chris Hemsworth Unravels Taika Waititi’s Magic

Anyone who knows me can tell you what a huge Chris Hemsworth fan I am. Since this is about the movie and not just the man, I’ll spare you the details. 😛 But there isn’t a scale on which to measure the awesomeness of Thor: Ragnarok. It starts with a bang, takes a break with a bang, and ends with a bang. Let me dissect it for you.

Secret Superstar – A Brilliant Movie About Dreams And Reality

When the trailer for Secret Superstar came out some time ago, I had pegged it as just another second film of a promising actress. I had thought that she would do a few movies like this, steadily losing ground until she faded into oblivion. But Zaira Wasim is not on this list. I have no idea about the future but right now, she is as far away from this as is possible.

Baby Driver – Movie That Firmly Parks Ansel Elgort in Hollywood

If you’ve watched The Fault in Our Stars and loved it, you’ll agree with me that the most loveable part of the movie, apart from the moving story, is Ansel Elgort. He’s tall and good-looking and acts pretty well. After TFIOS, though, a lot of people weren’t too keen on Elgort’s acting chops. Despite his role in Men Women and Children garnering positivity, Elgort was summarily dismissed as just another one-time romantic hero. That’s how I see it.

Dunkirk – What’s A Little Nolan Without Confusion?

Dunkirk is Nolan’s attempt to impress the story upon audiences through visuals and music for most part of the movie. It’s the story of English forces stranded in Dunkirk while being gunned down upon by Allied Forces, and their evacuation.

Naam Shabana – A Story Of Gritty, Sometimes Witty Shabana

If you have watched Neeraj Pandey’s 2015 action thriller, Baby, you’ll know Shabana. Played by Taapsee Pannu, Shabana is a character who oozes grit and determination. Patriotic to the hilt and righteous in the most positive sense of the word, Shabana knows no limit when it comes to serving her country.

Fight Club – I’m Breaking Rule Number 1!

I did come around to finally, finally watching Fight Club. And now that I have, I understand the years and years of people staring at me like I was mad for not having watched this classic. I did question my sanity for not having watched it earlier.

Stanley ka Dabba – A Generous Serving of Silent Retrospection

I’ve been waiting a long time to find the perfect movie that will make me write a review and kick off the movie reviews section of The Melodramatic Bookworm. Until a few days ago, even the thought of starting this barren section did not cross my mind. And then I watched Stanley ka Dabba.  The movie released in 2011, but it was only recently that I got a chance to watch it. Halfway into the movie, I was chiding myself for not having viewed this gem much earlier!
