Pride of Baghdad ~ Book Review (Graphic Novel)

Graphic Novels and me is a very recent love-story, so I cannot boast of having read too many of them but every single time I have come across one, I have been amazed by the plethora of ways in which the format can be truly influential. One would think that a (partly) anthropomorphic graphic novel… Continue reading Pride of Baghdad ~ Book Review (Graphic Novel)

Dhadak – What the fuck πŸ˜‘

(When you cry internally, you rant externally so this is a slightly (ahem) longish write up) *Tere naam ki koi 'Dhadak' NAHI hai na* 😣 I used to love my elder brother’s handwriting when I was little, say 9 or 10. His was a very pearly cursive decorative sort of handwriting that enhanced the value… Continue reading Dhadak – What the fuck πŸ˜‘

Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight (The Before Trilogy) ~ Richard Linklater #MovieReview

Linklater makes his movies as a sort of contemplation exercises, doesn't he? I may not be the right person to give a verdict here probably. I have only watched his Boyhood and the Before trilogy. A common thread running through both is this deep contemplative essence of growing up with yourself and with someone, of… Continue reading Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight (The Before Trilogy) ~ Richard Linklater #MovieReview

October (2018) – A Movie Review

Home is a feeling. Home is also a person. October, in the age of speed-dating and tinder, brings home the long-lost nuance of platonic, soul-nourishing love. The temperamental yet endearing Danish Walia played by Varun Dhawan, also probably one of the best performances delivered by him in his career (the only other I loved is… Continue reading October (2018) – A Movie Review
