A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsBahubali: The Conclusion, the highly-anticipated sequel to Bahubali: The Beginning, is out about two years after the first film tumbled all kinds of box-office records in India.

The overwhelming success of the first film meant that S. S. Rajamouli and team had to take things much more seriously.

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Arun KumarFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsSpanish actor Raul Arevalo’s (“Marshland”) directorial debutThe Fury of a Patient Man is a lean revenge thriller. The familiarity of its story line could be traced back to 70s thrillers. It shows masculinity at its worse, as a seemingly calm person loses himself to fiery temper, provoked by an injustice act. Yet, Raul Arevalo’s movie has a distinct quality attached to it. Shot in 16mm, the film uses skillful, urgent hand-held camera movements which passes off the documentary feel as well as a simmering intensity waiting to blow up. Shot amidst run-down, vibrant spaces of working class neighborhoo...

Not time, a little bit of patience will do it keenly.Regarding that, I would like to take honour to critique Rajnesh Domalpalli’s ‘Vanaja’ which never got a release in India...
