In this age where being ‘intellectual’ is demonized you are not surprised when it is said that, ‘this film did not do well, because it was too intellectual’. In a nutshell, that is what happened to ‘Madras Cafe’. In reaction to that, John Abraham in his next venture seems to have reached the other end …

If you wanted a pure cinematic ‘paisa vasool’ experience, then look no further, the last scene of Rajnikanth’s ‘Kaala’ is complete in all respects. The symbolism of color, and sheer brilliance in portrayal is cinematic magic at it’s best, exploiting the ‘visual’ aspect of the medium, it is satisfaction in itself! There is a tradition …

Marco Cecchinato and Novak Djokovic.

It was sheer luck that we stumbled upon the French Open quarter final between Marco Cecchinato and Novak Djokovic. Marco (ranked 72) had started strong taking the first two sets 6-3, 7-6 against the former champion Djokovic, but then seemed to have run out of steam as Djokovic eyeing a ninth semi final had clawed …

Unconsequential  is a spelling mistake, but really who cares, especially if we are going to talk about the movies that we are going to! First is Rampage, and the first enlightened thought while watching the movie was the realization that Dwyane Johnson (the Rock) is nothing but Mithun with better CGI (Computer Graphics).

arsene wenger retiring

Dear  Arsène, I became an Arsenal fan in 1999 and you are the only Arsenal manager that I have known. You stepping down is quite the shocker for someone like me, Arsène and Arsenal were synonyms for fans like us. People may talk about the trophies you won, pin you down to winning stats, however …
