A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureFor the longest time, there used to be a lot of hue and cry that Bollywood mocks Sikhs and is reluctant to portray them as heroes. And now that we have a heroic character like Sartaj Singh who is willing to sacrifice himself for the country I don't see why we should not celebrate his valor... in the first season he is forced to sacrifice his thumb to an Islamic terrorist... and this time again he puts himself on the line with the nuclear threat lurking on the city. As far as that said scene is concerned it comes at a time in the plot when Sartaj must detach himself with the memories of his father or else out of that attachment he would not be able to fulfi...

A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureAfter a lot of anticipation the second season of Sacred Games is finally out on Netflix and just as expected it tries to connect the dots. It also answers a lot of question that were left answered at the end of the first season but certainly not all which means that there will most likely be a third season and maybe possibly even fourth. Now there is no denying that in terms of scope and production values Sacred Games 2 is bigger than the opening season but unfortunately the audience response so far hasn't been very good. While I was watching the new season I observed a series of issues/problems with it. So I have endeavored to touch upon five of the most ...

Directed by David Leitch, Hobbs & Shaw also stars Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Eiza González, Ryan Reynolds, and Helen Mirren.The plot of Hobbs & Shaw is rather clichéd. Shaw and Hobbs who don’t lik...

And here you are -- dry, peaceful, serene, surrounded by some known faces and other unknown ones, watching a character come to life, one you’ve only glimpsed on screen for a split second.

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewSeeing the great English actor Laurence Olivier on stage someone once said that Olivier had so much energy that the stage could not contain him. Watching Kangana Ranaut’s raw energy in Judgementall Hai Kya one gets a feeling that cinema cannot contain her. With each new performance she somehow succeeds in one-upping her previous one. As Bobby, a girl suffering from acute psychosis, she is able to deliver a character that’s endlessly likeable despite being scarily unreliable. The credit, of course, should also go to screenwriter Kanika Dhillon for penning such a whacky yet convincing character.Watch the video review of Judgementall Hai KyaPrakash Ko...

When he starred as Rick Deckard in Ridley Scott's Blade Runner he was already world famous for playing Han Solo and Indiana Jones. While few will argue that Ford's name is synonymous with Blade Runner everyone will concede that in one rare moment of singular cinematic brilliance towards the end of the film a little known Dutch actor named Rutger Hauer completely overshadowed Ford with his sublime acting. Anyone who has seen Blade Runner will never be able to forget Roy Batty's 'Tears in the Rain' speech which Hauer greatly improvised to create a...
