Hello fellow binge watchers! Most of us have grown up in an education system where PT period’s importance was next to that of a free period. But your PT teacher’s influence extended beyond that one class. You might end up sucking at any or all sports but it’s the sportsmanship that he/she teaches you for life.

A murder convict, a rebellious boxer, a trophy wife and a high society event manager, the only common thread between these four Karachi women is their trauma, and this alone proves enough to unite them to stand against patriarchal bullying. On the face of it, the premise of Churails is straightforward. It looks like a fashionable start up with a simple agenda. Unmask rich cheating husbands (which are seen to be plenty), and make some money while at it. Their one line advertising ‘Mard ko dard hoga’ is pretty clear to that extent.Continue reading
The first woman to be an IAF combat pilot, her contribution to the Kargil war and her headstrong journey of braving her way into a male dominated institution. It is an inspiring story, irrespective of Bollywood. The question here is how high can this film soar from an already high pedestal.Continue reading
I cannot remember the last time there was such an honest investment on any commercial Hindi content based entirely on Hindustani Classical music. It’s almost criminal that this has been a fairly untapped genre in mainstream cinema.Continue reading
Raat Akeli hai opens up to a name appropriate scene where a truck hits a car followed by a brutal double murder. Cut to 5 years later, we enter a resplendent bunglow in UP that just wrapped up a wedding function, the groom is shot dead. Whodunit?Continue reading
A little girl playing in her verandah one day happens to casually solve a complicated mathematical problem. When this is brought to her father’s attention, he quickly turns this talent into a business opportunity and that’s where the journey of Shakuntala Devi begins.Continue reading
