Go watch it and perhaps it might end up changing your perception of a lot of things. Is this is the film that is going to change the face of Tamil cinema? Probably no. Do we need more films like this? Absolutely yes.
It is unafraid to show us the grim reality that these icons operate in. It is not always pretty but more often than not, it is spectacular. It’s gonna be a long long time before we get a musical biopic this captivating.
It is hard to talk about this film without mentioning certain scenes but I will try my best. You need to go into this film knowing as little as possible and then the effect gets amplified.
Article 15 is meant to make you feel uncomfortable. It takes you into the depths of the caste problem faced by many in India. I don’t know if this film is going to bring about change in society but I hope that it facilitates a conversation.
This film deserves your attention for it opens up a filmmaker’s heart and it’s a victory for the medium itself as it makes it’s own case and also justifies the world around!
Game Over is one of the best experiences I’ve had in a theater this year. It is a film that keeps you guessing and thinking about all that is happening. The fact that a lot of it is left open to interpretation pushes it to the next level.
One of my favorite aspects of Malayalam cinema is that no one cares about their position as stars. Everyone wants to work for the script and that is their biggest strength.
The technical brilliance of Free Solo is often forgotten due to the magnificence of Alex Honnold but it is a stunning achievement from a cinematic standpoint as well.
Without the bond between Faizi and Kareem Bhai, the story wouldn’t move the way it does. Any scene with the two can be picked out and looked at but I have chosen one that is quite close to my heart.
High Life certainly does not disappoint as it is one film that raises more questions than it gives answers. Personally I like this as I feel that too many movies try giving answers when they perhaps don’t have to.
