  • Come and See

    Come and See

    ★★★★½

    An extremely raw, robust & ruthless account of one of the worst atrocities committed by man, Come and See paints a relentlessly grim, acutely disturbing & emotionally devastating portrait of war through the eyes of a young boy whose soul, psyche & innocence is brutally slaughtered by the horrors & human sufferings he witnesses.

    Set in Byelorussia during World War II, the story follows a young kid who joins the resistance movement to fight against the advancing Nazi troops. Excited by the prospect of…

  • V for Vendetta

    V for Vendetta

    ★★★★½

    A vehemently crafted, voraciously told & vigorously acted cinematic vessel with a valuable & vivified voice that's as veracious as it is vengeful, V for Vendetta visualises an uncompromising vision of a vile & vexatious future our increasingly venomous world is visibly veering towards, and is by all means a valorous & victorious effort.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★

    Reappraisal

    God vs Man. Day vs Night. Son of Krypton vs Bat of Gotham. Batman v Superman brings the greatest gladiator match in comic books arena to live-action canvas in all its cinematic glory, and is a larger-than-life blockbuster that offers welcome upgrades in several aspects, once again teases with interesting ideas without ever digging deeper than surface, and manages to be both a better & weaker sequel to its predecessor.

    Just like Man of Steel, there are few moments of…

    Fight Club

    ★★★★★

    I look around, I look around, I see a lot of reviews for this classic. Which means a lot of people have been breaking the first two rules of Fight Club.

    Now if you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to…
