A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanThe long wait is finally over. The eight season of Game of Thrones premiered some time back. But before I make any revelations I must flash the mandatory SPOILER ALERT!Remembering my post from a couple of years ago, I had described Season 7 Episode 7 'The Dragon and the Wolf’ as one of the weakest of all Game of Thrones finales.

And I am now convinced that I was right about it being one of the weakest season finales. But having now watched 'Winterfell' I feel that the two episodes work really well together. ...

Directed by Robbie Grewal, RAW is a spy thriller that's inspired by true events leading to the 1971 India-Pakistan War. My YouTube Review of RAWThe final scene of RAW gave me goosebumps just like the climax of Dangal. The film is a slow burning espionage thriller made in the vein of films based on John le Carre's spy fiction books. While it's impossible to think of RAW without Raazi, I ...

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsBidita Bag with Reshma KhanRamesh Sippy’s Sholay is quite easily one of the biggest films ever to have come out of Hindi cinema—often popularly referred to as Bollywood. As a matter of fact, Sholayis often described as the quintessential Bollywood film. Sholay, which is primarily an action film, not only set the tone of the 1970s Bollywood but also the decades that followed. The best way to describe Sholay is as a Curry Western—a rather unconventional blend of the elements of Indian dacoit films, Italo-American spaghetti westerns and the Japanese samurai cinema. Whenever one talks of Sholay o...
