A short and sweet ode to fatherhood

The plot is simple and organic, so is the casting and the production. Daya Hang Rai as the loveable Birkhey finally makes an impact he had initially achieved in “Loot”

Incredible spectacle, troubling messaging

You will enjoy the ace acting of Kapoor, the melodious voice of Arijit Singh and the action sequences. The only problem with the movie is the blatant normalization and glorification of a ‘manly’ (actually sick) character like Kabir Singh.

Riveting retelling of a legend

Set against the backdrop of this Pendle witch trials, ‘The Familiars’ is Stacey Hall’s debut novel in which many characters are based on real people

A book about books

Spence confesses her love for certain books as well as her satisfaction in breaking up with some works

The Priyanka-Ayushman show

The movie feels stretched, save for the brilliance of the Priyanka-Ayushman duo and the beautiful cinematography that follows them across the hills of Ilam

Strictly for the Bhai army

“Bharat,” based on the 2014 South Korean film “Ode to My Father”, tries to do a lot of things, especially from the patriotism angle, within one feature length film and thereby destroys a story that could have been deeply moving

Old world charm

The Mystery of three quarters

ANNAPURNA

It’s (not) all in the name

The whole film is done smartly, actually. Sans expensively shot item numbers and massive production cost, Kumva Karan relies on its plot, screenplay and star cast to keep the audience hooked to their seats for the 1.47-hour runtime

ANNAPURNA

Dark and delicious

Each premise is ordinary but as the stories progress they take horrifying turns. They are all about death, abruptly ending relationships, and, of course, about revenge

ANNAPURNA

Light-hearted family fantasy

Will Smith is funny, and will keep the tone light-hearted right through with his wit and humor. Fans were skeptical about Mena Massoud as Aladdin but he’s proved everyone wrong with his phenomenal performance

Trying a little too hard

Packed with such good actors, some situational comedy scenes are hilarious. But overall, the film disappoints: it is too loud, and trite, and emotional in all the wrong places

Need more of ‘Less’

‘Less’ isn’t laugh-out-loud funny but it’s one of the wittiest and smartest novels you will ever read. That, we can guarantee. Arthur, in his self-deprecating and insecure ways, is a charming character
