    Atrangi Re

    ★★★½

    I liked the movie. Dhanush is phenomenal, as always, and his monologue in Tamil in a Bollywood movie really feels a welcome change. ARR's music elevates the experience to a whole new level - literally zero skips in the album. Sara (minus her accent) also gave a good performance, something I didn't expect after LAK2.

    However, I'm not really sure for how long we can excuse Bollywood's half-ass attempts in including mental health and LGBTQ representation by saying "well atleast…

    The cast 🥵🥵

  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★½

    Made for a fun back-to-theatres experience!

    Loved, loved, loved the BGM and cinematography so much
    Had some really hot characters 🥵
    But the plot faltered a bit and seemed to draw inspiration from various sources (just a small letdown). Overall a good movie, especially that end-credit scene👌

    To end I'd just like to say,
    WELCOME TO HOTEL CALIFORNIAAA

  • Mimi

    Mimi

    ★★★½

    After seeing the trailer, everyone (including me) thought they showed the whole plot in there , but that was only half of it - quite literally.
    The movie feels long and draggy in bits, courtesy to the plethora of issues they seem to tackle on.
    The story is good, and the message of the movie is sweet, but the execution of the climax could've been much better. It felt rushed, and didn't quite go with the established characterization.
    The dialogues…

  • Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai

    Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai

    ★★★½

    Great dialoguebaazi. Superb album. Good background score. Underutilized Randeep Hooda and Prachi Desai. Ajay Devgn and Kangana Ranaut were nice but Emraan Hashmi was downright bad.

    Overall a good enough masala flick.
