A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Nataranjan BohidarThis Hollywood movie is  slated to make noise, if not sound waves in China!Just the place to give this horrifying effort at horror a quiet burial...making noise in repressive China may make cannon fodder or something stastier© out of you, but it makes sound nonsense elsewhere in the free world...As if Night Shyamalan wasn't bad enough, the cornfields here and the quicksand silos of grain (Soya?

A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureBy Murtaza Ali KhanThe 1993 Subhash Ghai blockbuster Khalnayak is now available on Netflix. While watching it recently, I was reminded of the kind of cool movies that Bollywood made in the late '80s and early '90s. Essentially a pot-boiler, it's amazing how Khalnayak manages to elevate above its text thanks to some breathtakingly choreographed dance sequences and of course some brilliant acting performances. A majority of scenes in the movie can be described as average at best but Subhash Ghai's signature showmanship is evident in lavish sets and elaborate mise en scene he orchestrates for his dance sequences.The campy quality of the song "Choli Ke Pe...

It earlier won the Best Film Award at the 2018 Berlin Independent Film Festival. The film offers a riveting treatise on the lives of sex workers and it does so without ever trying to judge them. Perhaps, it’s helped by the film’s all-women technical crew. The film reminds one of Shohini Gho...

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsThe issue of corruption is not new to Hindi cinema. Also, in our movies, we are used to watching honest men jeopardize their lives to fight the all-pervasive corruption. Most of these movies depict their heroes as vigilante figures who are forced to take the law in their hands. But we get to see movies about men who try and fight corruption from within the system as often. It's not easy to blow the whistle on graft and it's even more difficult to fight those on top of the food chain. In the aftermath of the anti-corruption movement led by Anna Hazare many officers have come out in the open to expos...

A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureTelevision from the British Isles has a somewhat deserved reputation for being bland, boring or simply difficult for foreigners to understand. The 2013 - 2016 series The Fall, however, is none of those things, and manages to entertain while exploring themes many of us would rather not think about.Obsession, Longing and Unrestrained ImpulsesMany modern classics are based on the idea that modern society is, in a fundamental sense, not in good health. In The Fall, this is illustrated through a battle of wits between a detective (played by Gillian Anderson) and a mentally disturbed serial killer portrayed by Jamie Dornan.If this series had been produced in Hollywoo...
