Dil Bechara
(2020)

Below Average Movie Becomes Blockbuster by Public Emotions
Public emotions made this below average movie a blockbuster. Talking about the performance by the lead duo (Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi), it is nowhere close to the original film 'The Fault in Our Stars (2014)' starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. Songs and score are mediocre and expectation was higher specially when it is done by A.R. Rahman.

The Old Guard
(2020)

Charlize Theron Steals the Show
Charlize Theron is like a fine wine. At the age of 44, being a mother of two, she is playing the lead in kickass action movies.

Asur: Welcome to Your Dark Side
(2020)

Poor Casting
Poor casting and even poorer acting performances ruined a nicely thought original plot.

Ah-ga-ssi
(2016)

One of the Biggest Snub at the Oscars
Watched the Extended Cut. The cinematography and production design is quite charming. Great performance by the leading actress duo. Definitely a big snub at the Oscars that year.

Dwitiyo Purush
(2020)

Unnecessary Sequel
The film is a celebration of the grand hit first installment 'Baishe Srabon (2011)' and that's all. Poor screenplay as well as the silly twist ending ruins the entire film. I think this is Srijit Mukherji's 2nd unnecessary film after 'Begum Jaan (2017)' which is just a Hindi remake of 'Rajkahini (2015)'.

1917
(2019)

The Cinematography And Editing Is Worth Watching
Superb editing. Almost looks like a one-shot movie. Deserved at least a nomination in the Editing category at the Oscars. Roger Deakins' fascinating cinematography is a perfect treat for the eyes.

Before the Oscars 2020 ceremony a large number of people was saying this film would win Best Picture. Well, in my opinion, this film is nowhere near to 'Parasite' in terms of story, score, direction and screenplay.

6 Underground
(2019)

Crazy Action Cool Soundtrack
Crazy action sequences with cool soundtrack. The car escape scene through the art gallery while "O Fortuna" was playing in the background was pretty amazing.

Chhapaak
(2020)

People Need to Know the Actual Names
Making a film on a true story and then turning it into a fiction by changing the name of the characters is surely an example of coward filmmaking and this is a known virus that affects Indian filmmakers most of the time when they decide to make a biopic. People need to know the names of the actual people whose lives are being portrayed on the screen.

Mission Mangal
(2019)

A Great Plot Goes in Vain
The best part of the film was the End Credit scene showing the actual photos of the ISRO scientists involved in the Mars Mission and a part of Narendra Modi's speech. The rest of the film is full of same Bollywood melodrama, annoying songs and rubbishness from the production team. Again a great plot goes in vain.

Tumbbad
(2018)

Truly Original and A Fascinating Treat for the Eyes
Cinematography, sound and VFX is quite fascinating specially for an Indian movie. Story was original and no wonder why people are saying that Indian Film Board should have sent this to the Oscars instead of 'Gully Boy'. Academy loves original stories and 'Gully Boy' is somehow copied from Eminem's movie '8 Mile (2002)'. Anyway, a sequel of the film 'Tumbbad' is in the making and I'd love to watch that too.

The English Patient
(1996)

A Passionate Love Story With Amazing Score
A passionate love story against the backdrop of WWII comes as flashback in the mind of protagonist (Fiennes) as the current situation revolves around him. The performance by the whole cast specially Fiennes and Kristin is much appreciated. Gabriel Yared's charming background score completes the mood of the film.

Judy
(2019)

Zellweger Shines but Can't Save the Boringness of the Film
The story lineup is boring as hell but an amazing performance by Renée Zellweger makes everyone watch the movie. She must and will win the Oscar for Best Leading Actress this year for her performance as legendary Judy Garland.

Jallikattu
(2019)

Something Exceptional
The caveman and us are just separated by the time frame. It doesn't take much time for us to become like them, mentality wise.

The Irishman
(2019)

The 'Classic' Scorsese Is Back
The 'classic' Martin Scorsese is back and the film is full of magnificent acting performances from the all-star cast. We can expect the 2nd Oscar for supporting performance for Joe Pesci. There are some negative comments regarding the length of the film on the internet, but it was required as the film shows every last details of the events.

Batla House
(2019)

Nikkhil Advani Ruins the Plot
A good story was on the line, stars we're ready to give there best, but a poor direction by director Nikkhil Advani damaged all the suspense and quality of the film.

Bharat
(2019)

Watch, Enjoy and Forget
A man's journey during some of the important events of Indian history. Watch, enjoy and forget. Nothing special about it.

War
(2019)

Watch and Forget
A blockbuster dull movie having a pretty average kind of story. The film genre says "Action Thriller" but Tiger Shroff's almost expression-less acting makes it "Comedy" in some of the scenes. Hrithik Roshan's performance is good as always. Overall it is a "Watch & Forget" kind of movie.

One Mic Stand
(2019)

Shashi Tharoor Shines Like a Pro
Shashi Tharoor has some serious sense of humor. His performance was the best out of the 5 celebrity performers. Bhuvan Bam's performance is at number 2 and then comes Taapsee Pannu's. Vishal Dadlani's was the worst. He forgot his lines multiple times and was using foul languages in every sentence, making it a vulgar comedy.

Nuovo Cinema Paradiso
(1988)

A Celebration of Life
A celebration of childhood, friendship, life and classic movies. Truly one of the greatest Italian movies ever made.

Antichrist
(2009)

Should Have Deserved Some Recognition from the Academy
There are a very few films which can't be expressed in words. 'Antichrist' is one of those. Brilliantly made by director Lars von Trier and wonderful performance by both the actors, specially Charlotte Gainsbourg. I think the film should have deserved some recognition from the Academy, at least for Charlotte's performance. Also, I found it little underrated.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
(2019)

Not As Good As the Recent 'F&F' Movies
Crazy action scenes and amazing shooting locations weren't enough to put this spin-off at the same standard of the recent F&F movies.

The Thin Red Line
(1998)

Visually Stunning
Strikingly beautiful cinematography, excellent Terrence Malick direction and a all-star cast is a satisfying treat for the viewers.

The Lion King
(2019)

A Fantastic Treat for the Eyes and Ears
Stunning visual with some amazing background score make this film worth watching. Brilliant work by the VFX team. Child Simba's overloaded cute look is fantastic.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie
(2019)

Didn't Live up to the Hype
All the "Breaking Bad" fans who thought Jessie would start cooking again, will be disappointed. The film didn't live up to the hype of the acclaimed TV show, yet pretty enjoyable.

The Tashkent Files
(2019)

A Well Researched Movie
A well researched, nicely directed, low budget film that Indian film directors make more and more instead of those silly mega budget films without a decent storyline. Stunning performance by the whole cast.
