A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsThe Blair Witch Project (1999), a 1999 American supernatural horror film, started a new trend in horror movies—the found-footage technique wherein a part of the work is presented as if it were discovered film or video recordings. Now what really makes this look authentic is the grainy quality of the footage as opposed to the crystal clear, high definition image quality that cinema is generally associated with. Ashwin Saravanan’s Tamil-Telugu bilingual horror thriller too relies on the clever use of the found-footage technique (the film is presented by Anurag Kashyap; its Hindi-dubbed versi...

Those familiar with the X-Men film franchise would remember that X-Men:The Last Stand (2006) already dealt with the story of Jean Grey which makes Dark Phoenix a remake of sorts. It is generally believed that the 2006 film failed to do justice to the larger-than-life story of Jean Grey.

In the recent times we have witnessed a major revival of sorts in the espionage genre as far as Hindi cinema is concerned. More so we are witnessing an offshoot of a strong nationalistic fervour that seems to have captured the youth’s imagination as evident from the success of films like Baby, Raazi, Uri, etc.  The trend continues with India’s Most Wanted.

And yet over the years it has produced the best female athletes of the country. There is a general notion that in a Haryanvi family a male child is valued far more than a female one. It’s driven by an old patriarchal mindset that continues to plague our reason even today. Directed by Rajesh Babbar, Chhoriyan Chhoron Se Kam Nahi Hoti stars Satish Kaushik, Rashmi Somvanshi and Aniruddh Dave in the pivotal roles.
