5 years later a dead fandom comes to life and in the most magical way possible.
I still remember when the eight year old me sat in one of the old cinema seats to watch one of my favourite books come to life on the big screen; the anticipation, the barely contained excitement, the awe at finally getting to see the magical world that I had imagined and built up in my mind for a few years.

Movies are often guilty of being too different from their trailers and usually end up disappointing movie-goers.
Passengers is exactly the opposite of that. The movie is guilty of being too much like the trailer.

‘Let’s break up’ is probably one of the worst songs REVHUMAN has ever heard.
The biggest disappointment in the movie has to be the music. Now that we have addressed the elephant in the room, we can move forward and talk about the wonderful movie. Continue reading “Dear Zindagi is quite Near Zindagi!”
The makers of ‘Arrival’ teach us that when your mind is tired of thinking about what’s going on around you in the world: think outside the box.

So I recently got to attend a web series seminar by TVF where they were talking about their rise and dominance in the seemingly impenetrable web content market of India.

The first half of MSD starts like a typical limited overs Dhoni innings. Slow, and full of hope.

We find it funny thinking that a movie about robbing the corrupt and helping the needy managed to rob over 370 crores from the common public.
I could be talking about any movie, but the above line is in context to Salman Khan’s Eid-Entertainer; ‘Kick’. It’s somehow difficult to digest watching a movie where a humongously rich actor collaborates with other monetary powerhouses to give an example of a common man taking up an impossible and probably life-threatening task of remanding the corrupt. Continue reading “Reviewing the things that are wrong with movies like ‘Kick’.”
Amitabh Bachchan wrote an open letter to his granddaughters recently.
Talking about topics like sexism, gender stereotyping and basically allowing them to follow their dreams and marrying based on their choice among other things. That’s a very sweet gesture by a grandfather.

Except only the fact that he shared it online, just around his movie release, Continue reading “Of Open Letters, Movie Promotions & Ironies”
