A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanEd Harris as the Man in Black in Westworld: Season 2*****SPOILER ALERT*****Well, first things first... we all know that Robert Ford is dead but he is still pretty much in control of the proceedings at the park. As part of his new storyline (activated by him just before his death) the Hosts are no longer innocuous, for now they are capable of inflicting real damage to the visitors. Also, it is no surprise that he shares a special relationship with the Man in Black. As much as they hate each another there is respect between the two. Ford is obviously the mad genius but as we now know it is the Man in Black aka William who inherited Delos from hi...

A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureThe much-awaited trailer of the highly anticipated Salman Khan film 'Race 3' is finally out. And although there are any many familiar Bollywood faces on display the film seems to belong to Salman Khan only. His fans certainly couldn't have asked for a better Eid gift. Watching the trailer one gets a sense that in 'Race 3', Salman Khan may very well succeed in attaining the Superstar Rajinikanth level of coolness and that's no mean feat to achieve.Salman Khan's constant mentioning of the word 'family' is bound to draw comparisons to the Fast and Furious series. It remains to be seen if Race 3 is headed that way but if it does then it wouldn't really come as a su...

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Vivaan ShahSPOILER ALERTI first remember getting a glimpse of a queer black and white image from ‘High and Low’ on TCM, while channel surfing through an Onida CRT in the early 2000s. This was after Cartoon Network had made the shift to Hindi, and had become an all night station, relegating the erstwhile TNT that would initially follow its closing hours to the margins of even obsolescence. A tall over corpulent black man was twisting to surf rock in a dingy Tokyo nightclub trying to arouse the attentions of a quaint looking Japanese babe who slinkingly evaded his every advance like an alley cat, with a shoulder shift, her body language timed mechanically y...

A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureImage Courtesy: YouTubeThe official teaser of the much-awaited Sanjay Dutt biopic "Sanju" - directed by Rajkumar Hirani - is out and it is all about Ranbir Kapoor brilliantly essaying the different phases of Dutt's tempestuous life. And, by the looks of it, Kapoor seems to have nailed it. Given the unpredictably complicated yet larger-than-life persona of Sanjay Dutt, it was always going to be a challenge to essay the enigmatic character but Ranbir appears to be at great ease playing not one character but around a dozen. Yes, that's how many times Dutt seems to have reinvented himself over the last four decades. The film is rightly titled "Sanju: One Man.....

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...
