    Memories of Matsuko

    ★★★★

    The only two people who loved Matsuko in her life were her sister and Best-friend. Men did her dirty. Every single one of them. Her life was a tragedy, she went through hell. She smiled like a bright star, she was clumsy, unhappy but she always gave.

Kriti Sanon was just okay, I mean I was…

    Karnan

    Karnan was a great watch. Mari Selvaraj did it again, this time taking at a real time incident based Kodiyankulam, Tamil Nadu. Santosh Narayanan's score and Theni Eswar's cinematography are as heroic as its central protagonist.

    What I loved the most about Karnan is how characters interacted and how each relationship progressed as the story moved forward. This largely helped in affirming the idea of a rebellious collective helmed by an individual.
    From biblical references to ancient Indian mythology, Mari…
