Movie Review: Wonder Woman 1984 (English)

The year 2020 has been an awful one for the Indian box office.

Movie Review: Chhalaang

Hansal Mehta in its 2.0 avatar has usually made serious films like SHAHID [2013], CITYLIGHTS [2014], ALIGARH [2015], OMERTA [2018] etc. He did try a black comedy in between with SIMRAN [2017] but it was forgettable. His most recent venture, the celebrated web series, SCAM 1992, too was a no-nonsense affair. But now, Hansal Mehta… Read More »

Movie Review: Ludo
