Jagga Jasoos | Movie Review

Movies have always been about peddling dreams to the viewers but over the course of time, monetary returns started dictating the anatomy of movies. Some industries around the world adapted to this change and found a balance between honest film making and commerce, some industries drifted towards profit making by constraining creativity with fixed formulae, that work, apparently. Bollywood mostly has drifted towards formula-based filmmaking, where a marketing manager dictates additions to the cinematic narration and it gets accepted. “1 item song with Mrs. Leone + 1 Rap version of 80’s Bollywood song + 1 overpaid actor drowning in...

‘SITA: The Warrior of Mithila’ – Amish’s New Book’s Cover Revealed

Amish Tripathi had been teasing his second book in the Ram Chandra Series and yesterday he finally revealed the final book cover of “Sita: Warrior of Mithila”. The art on the cover is similar to what we have seen in ‘Amar Chitra Katha’ comics but what is different is the portrayal of princess Sita. Never has any artist attempted to portray the adopted daughter of King Janak, with muscular arms and legs. The portrayal is in line with Amish’s perspective of characters who are considered gods. Even in his previous trilogy on Lord Shiva, Amish chronicled the journey of Shiva from a  tribesman to a god, the same should be true for the character of Sita. Amish will chronicle her journey from an adopted daughter to a warrior princess and to ultimately a god. Amish’s take on Indian mythology is exceptionally thoughtful, careful and yet crowd pleasing.

With the massive success of Bahubali series, there is no shred of doubt that only Rajamouli can handle stories of epic proportions with aplomb, then would he adapt Amish’s books for the big screen? Karan Johar has the rights to Amish’s Shiva trilogy and he is also the promoter of Bahubali, so is there something we are not reading between...

It’s been 17 years since Hugh Jackman was cast as Wolverine for the first time. What has always enthralled fans about Wolverine is his kickass attitude and his ability to be immortal, almost; Wolverine has always been difficult to beat down because he can regenerate faster than anyone can destroy his living cells. As far as comics go, Wolverine has been alive since 1892 and has survived serious wars and personal trauma but what none of the other stories have explored is his vulnerability. ‘Old man Logan’ is a series of comics that features an older, beaten down Wolverine...

Silence Movie Review : Gut wrenching yet Rewarding

Over the course of human history, Religion has caused as much despair as much as it has given hope to humanity. The cause of despair has always been the same – “My path is the only true path and every other path only leads to the gates of hell”. People passionate about their faith have often transcended the lines of humanity to defend their God, who ironically is all powerful and also the creator of this infinite multiverse. But, among believers and non-believers, who causes more suffering to people? The priest who asks his followers to sacrifice this life...
